Kitchen and Bedroom

This was the second time we hired Clayton and Kelly to paint for us and, like the first time, we were not disappointed. They are very skilled painters and they do tremendous work in very little time. They communicate better than any contractors in the Ottawa (we have a 16 email chain to prove it) with lengthy descriptions and a detailed Excel estimate/work plan. We will be hiring them again in spring 2016 for some exterior painting when the weather returns to being nice. If you need painting done and you live in Ottawa, there's no better company to hire.

Interior painting

We hired Clayton and Kelly to paint about half of our townhouse prior to moving in. It was a very satisfying experience all around: competitive quote, professional demeanor, good communication and follow-up, quality work, you don't pay until you are completely satisfied (they come back for touch-ups before you pay anything). Would definitely use them again and recommended them to our family and friends.

Prep & Staining of Decks/ Indoor spot painting

Clayton and Kelly were great. They arrived exactly on time and worked carefully and efficiently. They explained what they were doing and consulted regularly as the work progressed. The work sites were impeccably cleaned up at the end. Many thanks, Clayton and Kelly.

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.

I hired Clayton and Kelly of A Cut Above Painting to paint the interior of my house, ceilings, walls and trim, in June 2015. My experience with this company, starting with the initial call-back, the site visit, preparation of the estimate, to the actual painting and completion of the job, was outstanding. I found Clayton and Kelly to be great communicators, thoroughly professional and courteous. The quality of the paint job was outstanding. They delivered on time and on budget. I have no hesitation whatsoever recommending this company to anyone looking for quality and professionalism in their painting contractor.

Painting of exterior deck

I enjoyed working with Clayton and Kelly. An estimate was provided within a few days of the initial visit. They did a very good job, showed up on time and kept me informed about their schedule when it rained. We are very satisfied with their work.

painting and minor wall repairs

Very professional. Showed up every day on time and did the job well ahead of schedule. Very polite and were a pleasure to deal with. Took great pride in their work and came back a few days later for some minor touch ups and to make sure that I was entirely satisfied. Excellent service at a good price. No hesitation to recommend them.

Interior and exterior painting

Clayton and Kelly were awesome. The painting looks terrific, and they were super professional and friendly through the whole process. They went above and beyond making sure our home was neat and tidy when they left, and that the painting looked perfect when it was all done. They stand behind their work, and it shows.

Patching and paint throughout the house

We had our basement and bathroom painted, as well as a few holes patched. Clayton came in and gave us a very good estimate and took his time explaining different things about painting and patching that we didn't know about. Not long after, he and Kelly came in and not only did the work that they were hired to do but went the extra mile and did more without us even asking (ex: sealed dents and cracks). We quickly noticed that Clayton and Kelly are extremely picky, knowledgeable and very good at their job! Job done in one day and they worked as if they were doing their own home. We were floored and extremely happy with the results. Well priced and the quality of the work is A++. We have had different painters come through our home, but this duo was far more professional and pleasant than all the rest. Thank you guys so much!

New Build Painting

After much research and 7 quotes I decided to use A Cut Above Painting. The price was right and the timing for the project was based around my schedule. Clay and Kelly are non-smokers and don't leave any mess behind. We had them paint a charcoal grey 2 story accent wall, the master bedroom and our 4 piece bathroom. Clay dropped off the paint wheel for me to choose the paints (Sherwin Williams) and didn't try to sway me in other directions when it came to my vision. They were in/out within 5 hours and the job was absolutely perfect, no taping required, no mess left behind and they were both so pleasant to work with. I was able to work from home and didn't even hear them. Since then they have painted my mom's bungalow and currently working on a rental unit for me. Their expertise, professionalism and prices are unbeatable.
