Earlier this winter I had a terrible roof leak that left me with puddles in my kitchen. With this my ceiling nearly fell apart and was left terribly stained! Jon came in to save the day, and I must say the ceiling looks just as good if not better then it did before the leak! I'm very pleased. I also decided to have my porch painted and was blown away by the amount of prep work that was done. I was conisidering getting it replaced but after Encore worked on it, I will happily get a couple extra years of life out of it. Again I am very very happy and would highly recommend Encore to anyone!

Terrific job, fast and thorough. The house is looking great and we even had Encore fix our stucco. Elmir the painter was onsite every sunny day, and even some rainy ones, working hard. Overall very happy with the transformation and would highly recommend.

We received three quotes for this project, in the end Encores professionalism and promptness won us over. The job started when it was promised, continued through until finished and we found the working staff attentive to detail. Very impressed with the effort to provide deep coverage of paint on fencing and surrounding delicate shrubs/vines. We will be calling Encore again when it is time to paint next.

We have used other professional painting companies and have had good service with little problems. Encore's price was a little higher, but we decided to go with them based on the personable and professional proposal. Encore raised the bar for customer service with a great manager to answer any questions. The painter was very conscientious and paid attention to details. We would definitely recommend them to our friends and family.

Ive never been so impressed as i have been working with Encore Painting, the production staff Dave and the painters. Jon was great helping me choose colours and even painted a few samples on my walls so i could see how they looked in different lights. Unfortunately during the job we had a family emergency, i asked to put the job on hold as it wasnt a good time to have painters in the house. Dave did a great job working around my schedule and was great with being in constant communication with me. When i was ready to go again he had the painters back in to finish the job right away. I literally called Jon and Dave everyday to let them know how amazingly happy i was, the transformation was above and beyond everything i expected. From start to finish this job was a huge success, thank you to the Encore team!

the quote we got was much less then a comparison quote and we are very happy with the results. Jon was recommended to us from a retired painter and Jons staff have done a wonderful job putting a fresh coat on the walls. The painters were clean and courteous and it was pleasure to deal with them. Would highly recommend!

We've used Jon Sarafinchin and his company, Encore Painting Ltd., for many paint jobs over the years and we know that his team of painters will do a fantastic job. They are courteous, detailed, tidy and always willing to touch up any little detail requested and help restore the room. After painting our kitchen this Spring 2011, we decided to include the dining room, and we are extremely happy with the colour recommended and the work completed in a timely manner. I highly recommend Jon and his personally selected group of painters as totally reliable, trustworthy and professional. No, I didn't get a discount, it's all true!

We really enjoyed the staff at Encore Painting. Polite, courteous and very receptive to pointers and my concerns. The job was done quickly and continuously and were happy with the colour and finish. Our screwdriver did go missing but was quickly found and returned. Thanks Jon and looking forward to working with you again.

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.
Back to Top

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.
