Expertly finished

We selected Encore to paint the exterior of our three story home. The entire experience was positive from quotation to final colour refinement. The Encore team respected our property and worked diligently on the significant task at hand. The team was sure to protect our flagstone and deck from paint/damage. The project was completed two days earlier than projected. The paint workmanship is neat and precise.

Timely and Professional Paint Project, Done Right

We are in the last stages of a total home reno that was running out of time before our house goes up for sale. I called the painting contractor we dealt with previously, but did not even get an answering machine. So I cast about here on HS for another company to paint 2 bedrooms and a stairwell for us.

Lauren came over same day as my call, to look our place over and put an estimate together, which we downloaded later the same day, a Friday. Price was fair, and she said her team was ready to roll Monday 1st thing AM.

George and Laslo arrived right on time, and Lauren walked them through exactly what we discussed, and the full parameters of the job. They were friendly, personable and professional, asking a few technical questions to verify details, and then they got rolling.

They did an absolutely superb job for us. There was an unusual ugly plaster defect that had appeared in our stairwell, over 2 feet across, and they plastered it in to perfection. Not an easy fix. Done.

My office window needed 4 coats of paint, as it was maroon, and we needed all trim painted white. No problem.

They moved furniture with great care, covered everything well, cleaned up afterward scrupulously, and were a genuine pleasure to interact with.
Their painting was thorough and expert, very smooth, top notch.

The whole experience was excellent, and completed in our two day window. Well done, George, Laslo and Lauren!

Highly recommended.

Thank you for the review! It was a pleasure working with you. Some areas of the home are definitely harder than others for a home owner to tackle. Good luck with selling your home.

Incredibly Poor Quality Job

I hired Encore to paint some exterior sections of my home. I choose Encore because they were well reviewed, decently priced and very professional during the quote process. Unfortunately, the quality of the paint job was so incredibly poor that the painters had to repaint one section three times. Their prep of the site was almost nonexistent; they did not bother to scrape or sand appropriately and painted over old chipping paint. In their defence, the company was very responsive to my concerns and sent a manager over three times to check on the work. The day after I signed off on the job, I noticed a strip of ceiling that had not been painted at all. I sent a photo and revived a message that the painters were aware of leaving this area out becuase “their ladders couldn’t reach this spot”!!! Seriously?? Just such a bad experience. I would never recommend.

Exterior brick staining

We had a great experience with Encore Painting from start to finish, and we're extremely happy with how our exterior staining turned out! The colour was exactly what we wanted and the workmanship was really well done. Lauren was wonderful to work with - from providing us with a quote (very reasonable compared to other quotes that we got), to scheduling the job, to checking in, and to the final walk-through. The painters that worked on our house were very professional and efficient, finishing our house in only 2 days. Overall, we're super satisfied with Encore Painting and would highly recommend their services!

More about Encore Painting Ltd

Interior Painting
We understand that we are guests in your house. The utmost respect is paid to maintaining an environment that is as safe and clean as possible.

Preparation
We use clean plastic drop sheets on all furniture.
Durable canvas drop sheets cover the floor.
During sanding, plastic sheets will be taped over entrances to contain the dust.
If requested by customer, all holes and cracks are filled and feather sanded to ensure all edges are smoothed.
Finish Coat

Top grade paints are applied to ensure quality and a job that is washable and durable.
All cut lines and edging are neat and clean.

Commercial
We know that your company’s appearance leaves a lasting impression with your clients, and with the help of experienced painters, you can make it a great one. We understand that work must go on in the work place so we endeavour to work around your business schedule. We do this by painting one room at a time or scheduling weekend work to make sure your business is not disturbed.

No VOC (volatile organic compound) paints are used, keeping office air fresh and healthy for all employees. From start to finish, your commercial painting project will receive attention to detail that only experience can offer.

Exterior Painting
Proper preparation of any painting project is the ground work to ensuring a long-lasting, quality job. With this in mind, our painters will:

Thoroughly power wash entire exterior surface if requested, or the project requires it
Cover all landscaping, bushes, driveways and other non-painted areas as required
Seal all cracks in wood, brick or stucco to seal out moisture
Hard scrape to remove all loose and peeling paint
Light sand all scraped areas to take some of the edges off
Provide optional feather sanding, using power sanders and additional hand sanding which leaves no edges where the previous layers existed
High grade primers are applied to the thoroughly prepped areas to seal in bare spots. The Finish Coat is what seals the thoroughly prepped surface and is what gives the fresh look that you and your neighbours will admire. Top of the line Sherwin William, Homestead House and Benjamin Moore paints are typically used to ensure a quality, long lasting job. Even paint coverage is done to provide visual consistency.

Exterior painting serves two important functions:

Protect your investment. Nature’s elements, like UV rays, moisture and Canada’s gruelling winters take their toll on exposed brick and wood over time. It is much more cost effective to prepare the surface and re-paint than to have to replace the material. The second is to provide an aesthetically pleasing finish to your home.

Pride of ownership is evident in many neighbourhoods. The best way to achieve that is that have your biggest investment looking fresh and updated.

Pressure Washing
In addition to painting, we offer pressure washing, which is used for freshening the siding and decking of your property. Many types of mildew, mould and other foreign substances can grow on and around buildings. Pressure cleaning will revitalize siding and wood surfaces making them look new again. These are also used for preparing them for their new finish.

Pressure washing technology combines your household water with environmentally friendly cleansers designed not only to clean, but to deter future mildew growth. Our cleansers are biodegradable and safe around gardens and trees.

This cleaning will be followed by a high pressure rinse to remove the detergents and any remaining dirt, mold, mildew, and peeling paint.
