Painting 4 bedrooms

This is the second job they've done for us and it didn't disappoint. Again, Kelly and Clay are very professional, conscientious and meticulous in their work.
They did a great job, as layers of wall paper had to be removed, plaster walls repaired. The painting job is immaculate.
A 3rd job awaits, this one outdoors. Excellent work.

Nursery Paint

We were completing the nursery for our first baby and decided to go all out with a feature wall with different layers and depths. Something I just wasn't keen on painting myself. We contacted 4 highly reviewed painters(including A Cut Above) in the area and Clayton & Kelly stood out from all of them. They actually took the time to come out and see the feature wall to give us the best quote possible and understand what we wanted to accomplish. They also were one of the most competitive bids.

Communication was always prompt, and we were never chasing them to get answers to questions, nor were they pushy in trying to get the business while we waited for other quotes to come in.

Clayton & Kelly scheduled the work to be completed within our schedule when we wanted and were able to finish the job faster than we expected. They were also the same two to come paint, as they don't use subs. The took the extra time to tape and cover the entire room as they were using a sprayer on the feature wall and there was no messes for us to clean up after.

The nursery looks fantastic, and being in a new build, there's lots of other rooms we will be wanting to get painted and won't even hesitate to have them back. They were very professional and meticulous in their work. A+

interior painting

We recently had Clayton and Kelly paint our entire upstairs hallway and all the walls down the stairs to our basement. Clayton came and gave us a competitive estimate and wrote down exactly what they would be doing for this price. I wanted a different paint than their usual supplier and they took care of pricing and picking it up for me. They were very concerned with leaving our house the way they found it each day and I was more than pleased with their cleanup, They as well did everything to ensure that any sanding that was done was protected from the rest of the house. Extra dust was at a minimum. I was very grateful for this. We had new rugs installed before they arrived and they were meticulously covered while they painted. Upon completion - ahead of schedule!- the painted area looked lovely. With their strong work ethic and careful technique I have no hesitation in recommending them.

Appartment painting

We have hired A Cut Above for two painting jobs. Both times the services was very efficient and professional. The painting was completed quickly and the finished product looked great. Clayton and Kelly are very polite and tell you exactly what they need to get the job done. Their rates were very reasonable for the quality of work that was achieved. This pair definitely comes highly recommended on our part.

Painting entrance

An awkward space to paint - 2 storey with stairs to basement. Clayton agreed to my choice of paint, arrived on time, explained what and how he and Kelly would do the work, used full drop cloths and did a careful, quality job. Very reasonable price.

Interior painting of our hone

Clayton and Kelly painted the whole interior of our home last may. They were very professional, on time every day and very easy and accommodating to work with. The whole job was completed in only four days which was amazing considering the amount of work. The finished product was absolutely beautiful and it made our home look like a new home. Each evening everything was cleaned up nicely ready for the next day. I will definitely use them agsin and highly recommend yo anyone looking to have this type of work done. Thanks again Clayton and Kelly.

painting of nursery

My husband and I were referred to Clayton and Kelly by my sister, after they painted her condo. We asked them to do a custom paint job of our baby girl's nursery and we couldn't have been happier with the result! Clayton and Kelly are knowledgeable, meticulous and extremely efficient. They left their workspace tidy at the end of the day and provided us with honest feedback on their progress. We are excited to have A Cut Above back in our home to complete another project in the new year. Thanks guys!

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.
