house interior

I had Dana come over to my home and give me a quote. Friendly and super nice and gave me a great quote! I am super happy with their expertise and excellent work! Nick and Roger came to do the home on Wednesday and were finished by Friday. These guys are pro's. Very,very meticulous! I have lots of molding and I am so impressed with the perfection of the job. My house looks modern and new! They cleaned up after every day They made it really easy.They even moved my King bed for me without asking or mentioning. Roger noticed my door handle on one of the bedrooms was broken and told me to pick one up when I was out and he would replace it for me! Thanks Roger! I left my home while they were working and felt very comfortable and trustworthy with these guys! If you want a professional paint job and a great price give Dana a call.

Do not deal with Robbie

I had a estimate done in our place. After job was done I noticed the closets in the bedrooms were not painted. Robbie told me I told him not to paint closets. A big fib since I can’t use the word L.. Entry closet green and new color on walls Kiliam beige. Talked to two other painters and they don’t even ask. If they have a bedroom to do they expect closets are included. This is especially since we are selling the house and everything is empty. This company is going to be reported to every place I know. Do not deal with Robbie

Donna,

This is Robbie from ADR Paint Special.

For every job, our business has a checklist we follow. The questions are always the same with every customer we do work for. This checklist is routine and I do this checklist five or six times a day with customers, so my wording seldom changes.

During this checklist, we go over what you get for our $375 paint special. For $375, we will paint the walls in 3 rooms.

If a customer asks for us to paint the doors, the frames, the baseboards, the window frames, or the closets, this is an extra charge.

All our pricing is structured so we can pass on the best possible price to our customer in our quote.

In reference to this specific job:

I ask the customer if she wanted her closets painted. At the time said no that she did not want to pay extra to paint the closets,with the reason being that she was selling and didn't think painting the closets mattered. So, the price that we gave her did not include closets.

When the painters went into the home to start painting, closets were not checked off our checklist—so our painters did not paint them.

I gave the customer the opportunity to have us come back and paint them for cost. (the cost of the paint and the time it takes for the painter to do the work). We are not looking to make any money off of the closets,but we do need our painters to get paid for the time that they spend to do the job.

We apologize for this miscommunication error and if you would like to have us paint your closet, we will gladly come back and paint your closets.

At ADR Paint Special we have pride in our work and it stands in our numerous, 100+ 5-star reviews. If there is anything we can do to make this right, please let us know.

Painting almost my entire house and ceiling

We are very pleased with the paint job done by this company. Sandy and Merv were very pleasant and timely, not to mention their expertise on a job well done. The cost to have my home painted was very reasonable, almost to good to be true. We will and have recommended this company to our friends and aquaintances.

Thanks again, Randy and Heather

Interior house painting

Professional, focused, punctual, great manners.
Great attention to detail e.g. mudding and sanding cracks before painting.
They asked about our expectations and priorities before starting which meant no surprises.We felt comfortable leaving them in our home when we had to. In every way we were very happy with this team!
Thank you ADR

Entire upper level of a rancher, including the stairwell.

Being new to Kelowna we had no idea which painter to hire but our daughter recommended this company as she had used their services in the past. Upon calling Robbie, he responded immediately and set up an appointment for a quote. As questions arose later he always answered our calls and gave good advice. On the appointed day for the painting to begin, Sandy & Merv arrived very promptly, and after introducing themselves they got right to work. We couldn't have been more pleased as two coats of paint later they had transformed our home by doing such a professional job. We would welcome this couple back again and would not hesitate to recommend them to others. They are the best!

Painting interior walls townhouse

I'm sure everyone has had a "Friend of a friend" try to fleece them on a job, whether it be mechanic work, landscaping, or in this case painting. In our situation It was my wifes girlfriends husband, who just happened to not be busy at the time (should have been a warning sign) and said he'd come do an estimate to paint our walls.

He quoted us 2650 Dollars for walls only. Plus tax. It seemed a bit high to me and he aggressively contacted us to book the job to get started asap, so I called my friend who builds houses and asked him for 3 recommendations, Dana From ADR was one of them. He came out to do an estimate exactly when he said he would, he showed up 10 minutes early actually, always kept in contact with me via text or phone call on where he was.

Did a walk through of the house, answered EVERY single question I asked him thoroughly, there was one particular thing that stood out about Dana and eventually ended up selling me on him and his company: Dana is a no BS straight shooter kinda guy. He was very honest with me and tells it like it is, I really appreciated that, It didn't feel like I had a greasy car salesman trying to sell me a used car, it felt more like someone concerned that I'd receive the best service possible and be happiest with the job quality in the end. I will note, he wasn't the least expensive quote I got, however he was so close and competitive enough that his positive attitude and experience made me decide to hire him. His staff were in and out in exactly the time he said they would be, they're licensed, bonded and insured and I felt comfortable leaving them at my house while I was in and out for work all day long.

The job turned out beautiful, patchwork was good, color was even and sharp around edges, trim and roof. There were no "surprise charges" on the invoice at the end, and his staff were always friendly and respectful with my wife and kid as well. I didn't even realize his quote had included an additional bathroom on it I had asked him to quote separately. If I did the math, it most likely would have worked out to him being the best priced had I factored that in he was so close. Would Highly recommend and have them paint anything I required painted in the future.

The mildew is pre-treated with a solution of bleach and water to destroy the mildew and remove any stains caused by it. We remove these contaminants to ensure a proper finish coat bond. The pressure washing also helps remove loose and peeling paint. While it helps, pressure washing does not replace scraping and sanding which will be done by our painting crews.

Such as scraping of any peeling paint, sanding all the bare wood areals for smoothing, sealing of the cracks and construction seams, priming the bare wood.
