Trustworthy and professional Interior Painting

We were referred by trusted friends to Gareth and we were really happy with his (and his son's) work on our main halls and bedrooms. Efficient, reliable, and professional. We chose the colours and told him what finish we preferred. Gareth purchased the paint (Benjamin Moore) and the quality of paint was excellent. Timing of the job was what they had estimated. In between the 3 day job, they were made sure that everything was cleaned and not in the way so our family could still go about our daily routine. Can I say they were fun too? Very personable and friendly. Oh, and great with our dog too! We completely trusted them in our home. We would definitely have them back for future projects.

Interior Painting

We had a large portion of the interior of our 3 story home repainted by the 'English Painter' in November. The work was exceptionally well done. Scheduling was excellent and there was a good cleanup everyday so that we could continue to live in the house while they worked. Holes were refilled and sanding was done before the painting. The overall walls looked fantastic. Much better care and craftsmanship then I have seen in other painters I have hired. Good safety practices (including COVID)

They also did a large exterior painting job at our sons home this summer and that was also first rate.

I would highly recommend their services.

Painting Living room, dinning room and hall

The father and son team are house painters extraordinaire. They did an excellent job and overcame unexpected challenges, such as 2 holes in the ceiling left by the electricians, and did not complain or charge extra. I would highly recommend them.

Interior painting

We had two rooms repainted, with some tricky areas. Gareth and Liam completed all the work within a day, and the results are great. Booking and billing were easy and straightforward, and communications were timely. I would hire English Painter again, thanks!

Condo painting

My condo needed a paint update. The walls hadn’t been painted since the year 2000 and the colour on the walls was probably popular sometime in the 1980’s! I found English Painters online and was very impressed with the information and the reviews already entered.
The communication between the office (Carol) to the start of the project was quick, efficient and very helpful. I had a lot of questions about the project – the type of paint to use, how to deal with issues afterwards – and the whole team – Carol, Liam and Gareth provided all the information I needed.
The actual execution was wonderful. Gareth and Liam have a passion for their work and it shows. From the initial wall prepping to the actual painting, they were consistently organized, detail oriented, clean and professional.
The result was beautiful and I’m very pleased. I would recommend their services highly!

Home Exterior Painting

Beautiful results! Our old bungalow was overdue for exterior painting. I was AMAZED by the transformation, within just a few days! The English Painter helped select the best colours to refresh and modernize the house. Precision and care was used to paint the "tricky" areas that required expertise and attention to detail. The results were flawless and beyond my expectations. The English Painter was reliable, on-time, trustworthy, and cheerfully answered all my questions. Overall a superb experience. Highly recommended!

Painted exterior of house.

From meeting Gareth for the estimate to completion of work, it's been a pleasure working with him and staff.

He completed the job above and beyond my expectations.

Arrive on time as advise, completed quickly and very clean. I will have him back to do a interior job in the future.

Painting of exterior home

Gareth & Liam did an AWESOME! Job painting the exterior of our two storey home. (Stucco and window trims)
Their attention to detail was exceptional, regardless of any unforeseen challenges. (Organized, clean and professional)

In addition, Carol was great at keeping us informed of the status of the timelines and any necessary requirements.

We are extremely pleased with the results and would highly recommend English Painter to anyone who wants quality work

Exterior painting of two story tudor

Gareth and son Liam painted the entire exterior of our two story tudor home. A challenging job with extensive preparation, primer and two full coats over the course of eight days with a fantastic result. They paid great attention to all aspects of the job. On time, spotless cleanup at the end of each day, solid advice, and a real pleasure to do business with. There is obvious care and pride taken in their work. I would not hesitate to recommend the English Painter.

Perfect job

The English Painter painted recently the exterior of our house in Cedarvale.
Gareth and Liam did a fantastic job bringing out the beauty of our house by painting meticulously the many architectural details.
Gareth and Liam showed up singing and always in good spirits in their van every morning. This reflected in their work, you can see that they love what they are doing.
I wouldn‘t hesitate a moment to recommend them and we hope to work with them in future again.
