Professional - from Beginning to End

Clayton & Kelly Gave us a timely quote, explained what they were going to do, arrived when they said they would, and used a quality paint on our house. The result is beautiful, and they cleaned up their mess when the left.

I couldn't give them a higher recommendation.

Paint for new house

We had gotten quotes from other companies and Clayton and Kelly were not only better priced, but I had them in our previous home before so knew the attention to detail was there. The paint job consisted of painting our main floor (entrance, hallway, high walls in the stairwell, kitchen, living and dinning rooms), two bathrooms and baseboards that badly needed work after we installed hardwood floors.

On consult, Clayton took his time to explain risks and advantages with going with certain paint colours and the quality of paint he would be using and why. We are really happy that we took his advice.

Finally my husband and I both work from home and during the paint job, Clayton and Kelly were super quiet and were careful not disrupt us.

Thank you Clayton and Kelly for another great service and for your professionalism!

Main floor walls/ Hallway and basement staircase

We were referred by extended family, who had some work done as well at their home. Clayton and Kelly were really attentive to what we were looking at getting done, and they were really helpful in selecting the colour. They came and did a fantastic job, and we have since then referred them to friends that are also looking to get work done.

Highly recommended

Thanks again Clayton and Kelly

Kitchen touch up!

After replacing the counters and backsplash in our kitchen, the walls needed mudding and paint to repair a gap left by the old backsplash. Clayton and Kelly offer a competitive price, accurate quote, and quality work. They are prompt, friendly and courteous. We have had A Cut Above Painting for a number of jobs, and will continue to rely on them for any painting we need.

Quality Stairwell Painting

We are very pleased with A Cut Above Painting's work and would hire them again for future projects. Kelly and Clayton provided us quick, friendly, quality service at a very competitive price.

My partner and I were in the process of repainting our house ourselves, but decided to hire a professional painter for our stairwell because we knew its curve and height would prove to be a challenging job for us. After gathering a few estimates, we decided to go with A Cut Above Painting. They were always quick to respond to our messages, agreed to using the Behr Marquee paint we had, and their price fit our budget. It was also clear based on our conversations that they knew their trade.

Kelly and Clayton made the whole project seem effortless. In a single morning, the two of them were able to repair minor imperfections, sand the surfaces and apply 2 coats of paint. They were efficient, yet did not sacrifice quality. We were very happy with the results and are now considering more projects with them because of it.

A full house interior painting

We had this company did a full house interior painting just before Christmas. Their quote was quick and detailed, and price is competitive. Their customer service is prompt. Clayton and Kelly are professional, hard working, and polite. We are happy about their quality work.

A pleasure to do business with

I can't say enough good about A Cut Above. Clayton and Kelly were exceptional from start to finish. The first inspection was comprehensive and the estimate fair and detailed. They arrived on time as scheduled and worked diligently until finished—2 days early! They paid significant attention to detail and went above and beyond my expectations. An absolute pleasure to deal with.

See you soon,

Incredibly professional and reliable

We hired A Cut Above this year to repaint our townhouse interior and front door. Throughout the quote process through to completion, Clayton and Kelly were incredibly reliable and professional. Their workmanship was impeccable. They provided proof of insurance. We had some tight timelines and they helped us make sure they were met, even working around a last minute houseguest.

There was a lot of patching to be done and a few spots dried oddly in the days to follow. Clayton and Kelly came back and fixed those perfectly.

They were clear about setting expectations at the start, fantastic with their communication about what was done and what was next.

We're incredibly satisfied with the work they did and would choose them again without question.

Interior house painting, walls, ceilings, trim, laundry room cabinets

We had “A Cut Above Painting” complete interior painting of our rental property back in June. We were very pleased with their work so had them back to complete most of our home in November. From the estimate through to having them return to do a few touch ups a week or so after the job was completed, we found them once again to be very professional, respectful of our home, receptive to any questions or concerns we had...in short, “A Cut Above”. One big advantage is that they are owner operated so the person who comes around to do the estimate, is the same person who is actually doing the painting. Highly recommend Clayton and Kelly.
