Painting Several Rooms

My wife and I were looking to have several rooms in our home re-painted to remove colours chosen by a previous owner. These rooms had various degrees of drywall patching that needed to be done as well.

We interviewed four painting companies in Ottawa, all of which seemed very nice and offered competitive quotes.

We chose Clayton & Kelly (A Cut Above Painting) because they took a great deal of time explaining their method, the materials they would use, their clean up process and they gave us a detailed Excel spreadsheet quote describing each step of the project. Their price was very competitive as well. They gave off a very positive and energetic vibe when we met them and this carried on throughout the project.

As for the project and work itself, their painting was precise with even coverage and sharp cut lines. They did a very good job on drywall patching some challenging areas where there were multiple holes created by old A/V and speaker wire panels from the 1980s.

They were happy to do additional work that we requested during the project that was not part of the original quote.

They gave us daily feedback emails with lengthy room-by-room descriptions of work completed and work outstanding. These emails were written with unusually high quality for a contractor (no offense to other contractors, but spelling and punctuation is often not their strong suit).

After all, we were extremely satisfied with the results and we did not give 1 penny before the project was complete and they personally gave us a tour through every room.

We will most certainly re-hire A Cut Above Painting in the future and would recommend them highly.

Exterior house painting

Our house was built in the 1920's and the wood and previous paint were not in good shape. Clayton and Kelly worked diligently to give us a quality job. We are delighted with how the house now looks. Clayton and Kelly are hard working very pleasant people. We enjoyed having them around.

Outdoor painting, deck and wood columns

We hired A Cut Above in the summer of 2014. They did excellent work, were always on time and work very diligently.
A Cut Above gave us an estimate and stuck to the price.
Highly recommended.
