Zero stars. Chuck Huggins of West Virginia Painting & Restoration, Inc. is one of the WORST contractors I have had the displeasure of working with in over 30 years. I am in process of working with the West Virginia Attorney General’s Office and filing a civil suit with the West Virginia Magistrate Courts. Please contact me for relevant documentation, court filings, and a more detailed summary of his fraud. From poor performance/timeliness, drinking on the job, not showing up for days at a time, and then abandoning the job site with a fraction of the work completed – he had to be fired. For an 18k+ contracted job he performed less than 25% of the work after drawing $12,000 in funds (about 60%) and then had the audacity to send a grossly exaggerated statement asking for more money due after he was fired. This was after drawing another 1/3 payment and cashing the check, just a day before he walked off the job. This is an absolute garbage company and individual, and if you do business with him and his company (just him, no employees) you will soon find out for yourself – avoid at all costs. After many attempts to get him to live up to the contract and then to leave the job and refund the over payment for work not performed, he went radio silent and forced me into the legal process.
About as shady as they come. Do not trust this contractor. He was hired for what he even says on camera "a very simple job". After taking a weeks to communicate back a quote he finally got there and stated the work, and of course was 7 hours late on the first day. Anyway he was paid the agreed upon $2400 on day one of the job. I needed some additional work done and in text messages we agreed on $600 for the extra work making the job $3000 in total. He never finished the work leaving things unpainted, leaving slat wall not mounted correctly and not straight on the wall, just over all very lazy, quick, half fast and unprofessional work. Told him to come back and finish his work and I'd pay him the extra $600 well he calls me an A** hole and sends me a bill for $1050?? Guy literally just started making up charges. I spent a lot of time reviewing our cameras and creating a time line of his work and this shady guy literally tried to charge me $45 per man hour for the whole job again, its like he forgot I already paid him $2400. On top of that he got into it with my employees, he farted in front of a customer in our store. I have reported this company to the Attorney General and BBB, buyer beware!

Chuck Huggins is an excellent contractor and artisan craftsman. He knows how to restore and renovate an old home so that its historical integrity is preserved while making updates that reflect living needs of the present. He is meticulous in his workmanship. Chuck has an exceptional knowledge of choosing paint colors that reflect the owner's wishes, but are not tiresome or regretful after a bit of time. He is also creative in adding special touches to unique problems. He created an everlasting garden behind two original dining room windows that attached to an added porch room. The windows became a beautiful art piece as well as adding privacy to the back porch room without the typical use of curtains or drapes. He also painted the front porch floor in a beautiful brown color which I would not have thought of using. With the addition of ferns above the porch boxes, this space became very inviting and more private. He is also very knowledgeable in picture framing, placement and hanging. He also solved a problem I had in the area above a large walk-in closet. There was a large space for storage above the closet which we concealed with matching curtain valances. I had stained glass panels made which Chuck inserted into a wooden background to fit the space previously covered by valances. The panels were done in opaque glass which allowed them to be seen when not lit from the closet. When the closet lights were on, the effect was beautiful. I was thrilled by the work Chuck did for me five years ago and continue to feel that way today. I highly recommend Chuck Huggins!!!
Chuck has done a variety of projects for our Morgantown house, including a complete repainting of our basement that required extensive surface preparation, exterior house painting (where he was really great in helping us select the various colors) and several outdoor projects. In each instance he has been professional, showed up and finished up on time and on budget. Also he has always been communicative, unlike some contractors who you never seem to be able to reach. Overall he is the best contractor in the Morgantown area that we have been fortunate to work with. He has our highest rating and recommendation.
