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.

Clayton and Kelly did a great job painting the interior of our house. They were professional right from the quotation through to the final invoice payment. They provided daily updates and left the house clean and tidy after each day of painting. Thanks guys!

Outdoor porch paint work

Kelly and Clay have done indoor and out door work for us over the last 6 years. They work well together, and the finished product is always meticulously done. They are punctual and within estimated time limits for a job.
Highly recommended.

Staining Deck & Sheds

A Cut Above Painting stained our deck a few years ago. We contacted them again to stain two sheds and touch-up the deck. They did a great job on both, and matched the original color on the deck, as well as replacing some rotten wood. Scheduling was a challenge with rainy weather and construction next door, but they were able to re-adjust their schedule to fit us in during a week when the dust from net door was at a minimum. The finished job looks great.

Thanks to you both! We're lucky we had some dust free days to complete everything. Summer does have its challenges. Hopefully we have a beautiful fall for you to enjoy the deck.
Thank you

Interior and exterior painting

We have used A Cut Above twice, both for indoor (painting our nursery) and outdoor (fence staining and outdoor house painting) jobs. Clayton and Kelly do great work - taking time to go over the project with us and to select the right product, and doing a very high quality job each time. So great to come home from work/travel to such a clean, fresh new look.

They provide daily email updates on work progress, and happily glued a cracked post in our new fence. They also painted our door frame at no extra cost.

They book up quickly so you’ll want to contact them well ahead of time, but you’ll be happy that you did!

New life for my Carport

I had my carport painted by Clayton and Kelly and could not be happier with the results, and the entire process. My initial questions about the job were answered with expert advice, and the communication about the project was great. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone.

Upstairs Painting

Kelly and Clayton painted our master bedroom and ensuite, our second bedroom and second full bathroom, plus hallway doors and trim. The work was completed on schedule in two days and adhered to the original quote. We join the other HomeStar reviewers who rated Kelly and Clayton so highly. The quality of the work was excellent, and they are thoroughly professional. They even did extra work caulking and touching up where they were not required to do so. We would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone seeking painting service. We should note also that the price reflects our request that a premium paint be used (Benjamin Moore Aura) despite its higher than normal cost.

Horrid customer service

I hired Clayton and Kelly to paint 3 bedrooms and the staircase, spindles and risers. While the bedrooms were painted well, the paint of the staircase started peeling off within 6 months/ when I brought this to the attention of Clayton and Kelly I was simply told it’s normal wear and tear. I requested that it be fixed but was not given a time and date for the staircase to be fixed. With no choice left I had to get another painting professional who did inform me that the paint peeled as there was not enough drying time in between coats. I am absolutely shocked at the customer service that I was not even given a date and time it could be fixed. Will never recommend Clayton and Kelly to anyone.

Afternoon Candida,
We apologize that our email to you was somehow misinterpreted.
In our email to you we specifically stated that the paint coming off in the 2 small areas on the banister was not indicative of normal wear and tear and that paint should not rub off under normal circumstances.
We also said that we would be more than happy to come by and touch those areas up for you.
We then said that we would let you know when we are working in your area so that we could come by and touch those 2 areas up.
We are sorry that you found our efforts unsatisfactory.
We wish you all the best in your new home.
