Assisted Review

An assisted review is collected by a contractor on behalf of the homeowner after their work is completed. The homeowner must confirm the text of the review and may make any changes she or he deems appropriate. The homeowner then assigns the contractor a review score out of 10. Assisted reviews receive the same scrutiny as other reviews and must follow our review guidelines.

We bought a condo that had been previously used as a rental unit for several years, needless to say there was more then just painting that needed to be done. The amount of prep that was done was astonishing and the attention to detail to make sure that all holes and cracks were filled was impressive. Then the paint went on, i've kept the before pictures on our coffee table because i enjoy showing friends what a disaster the unit looked like before Jon and his painters helped transform it into a livable space. Thanks Encore and i will be mentioning you to anyone who needs a reliable and professional painting company. All the best

Jon really knows his stuff, reliable and trustworthy they were a real pleasure to work with. They did our whole house in just a couple of days. The only way we were sure they came was because our home smelled of fresh new paint....and of course the different color on the walls!

Painting multiple interior rooms

As designers, we are very picky about painting. Getting the colours right and all the edges "neat" on a room is really important to us. It's a challenge to find a painting company that can deliver quality, service and price. I'm delighted to say that Encore delivers on all three.

Over the past four months we've had Encore Painting at our home to do various painting projects for us. They've repainted two bedrooms, our hallways, new baseboards, new doors, and our newly renovated den. All the rooms look great, and their attention to detail is superb.

What I also appreciate about Encore is that they hire "nice" people. We've put them to the test on this because we've had them back many times, and have had different painters. Each time, I've come away thinking that Jon (the founder) hires great people who know how to paint. It's always an imposition to have people working in your home, but with Encore staff, their courteousness and thoughtfulness really stand out -- it's a pleasure to have them around.

I recommend them highly. (Leah, our Supervisor was terrific.)

More about Encore Painting Ltd

Interior Painting
We understand that we are guests in your house. The utmost respect is paid to maintaining an environment that is as safe and clean as possible.

We use clean plastic drop sheets on all furniture.
Durable canvas drop sheets cover the floor.
During sanding, plastic sheets will be taped over entrances to contain the dust.
If requested by customer, all holes and cracks are filled and feather sanded to ensure all edges are smoothed.
Finish Coat

Top grade paints are applied to ensure quality and a job that is washable and durable.
All cut lines and edging are neat and clean.

We know that your company’s appearance leaves a lasting impression with your clients, and with the help of experienced painters, you can make it a great one. We understand that work must go on in the work place so we endeavour to work around your business schedule. We do this by painting one room at a time or scheduling weekend work to make sure your business is not disturbed.

No VOC (volatile organic compound) paints are used, keeping office air fresh and healthy for all employees. From start to finish, your commercial painting project will receive attention to detail that only experience can offer.

Exterior Painting
Proper preparation of any painting project is the ground work to ensuring a long-lasting, quality job. With this in mind, our painters will:

Thoroughly power wash entire exterior surface if requested, or the project requires it
Cover all landscaping, bushes, driveways and other non-painted areas as required
Seal all cracks in wood, brick or stucco to seal out moisture
Hard scrape to remove all loose and peeling paint
Light sand all scraped areas to take some of the edges off
Provide optional feather sanding, using power sanders and additional hand sanding which leaves no edges where the previous layers existed
High grade primers are applied to the thoroughly prepped areas to seal in bare spots. The Finish Coat is what seals the thoroughly prepped surface and is what gives the fresh look that you and your neighbours will admire. Top of the line Sherwin William, Homestead House and Benjamin Moore paints are typically used to ensure a quality, long lasting job. Even paint coverage is done to provide visual consistency.

Exterior painting serves two important functions:

Protect your investment. Nature’s elements, like UV rays, moisture and Canada’s gruelling winters take their toll on exposed brick and wood over time. It is much more cost effective to prepare the surface and re-paint than to have to replace the material. The second is to provide an aesthetically pleasing finish to your home.

Pride of ownership is evident in many neighbourhoods. The best way to achieve that is that have your biggest investment looking fresh and updated.

Pressure Washing
In addition to painting, we offer pressure washing, which is used for freshening the siding and decking of your property. Many types of mildew, mould and other foreign substances can grow on and around buildings. Pressure cleaning will revitalize siding and wood surfaces making them look new again. These are also used for preparing them for their new finish.

Pressure washing technology combines your household water with environmentally friendly cleansers designed not only to clean, but to deter future mildew growth. Our cleansers are biodegradable and safe around gardens and trees.

This cleaning will be followed by a high pressure rinse to remove the detergents and any remaining dirt, mold, mildew, and peeling paint.
