For Busy Clients
Toronto Commercial & Residential Painters
Ecopainting is not just another company of Toronto Painters with commercial & residential services. What makes us uniquely different?
Ecopainting has been painting homes and buildings in the GTA for over 20 years. Whether you are a homeowner or a commercial manager, we want to become your go to painting contractor.
What to Expect from your Commercial Painters
A building manager knows that painting is not something you do every year. There is only so much budget to go around and renovations are an inconvenience to everyone in the facility. Peace of mind happens only if the details and expectations are all set at the beginning of a project.
What to Expect from your Residential Painters
Finding the right house painters or painting company for your home takes time and you want to do this right. You may ask friends and neighbours for a recommendation or you can search “Painters Toronto” in Google. Whatever your search method is, always pre-qualify the contractor before getting an estimate. Since everyone will promise you “quality work” what should you expect? Let’s walk through the process that we use here at Ecopainting.
When you first contact us, we set up an appointment to discuss your project. The purpose of this meeting is to find out what is important to you and to assess your needs. Here we talk about trendy colours, the latest paints and discuss your ideas. This is a good time for you to interview the contractor. We welcome your questions and address your concerns. Why not ask about our painters and who will be doing the actual work? We may be the only Toronto Painters that guarantee to not use sub-contractors.
“A proposal is more than just an estimate, it’s the roadmap for a great customer experience”
The proposal includes company information, insurance documentation and warranty details.
The “Scope of Work” lists what gets painted and what does not. For example: how many coats, what grade paint, which primer. Here we detail the level of prep and how we protect your property.
The “Colour Schedule” lists the room colours and is prepared by a colour consultant or designer.
Pricing can be for the entire job or broken down for different options. Unless the scope of work changes, the price will not change without customer approval.
First we will suggest a start date and confirm it a few days before starting. On the first day the job manager will review the scope of work and discuss the following with you:
- Are there any rooms you want done first?
- Do you want the painters to lock up or will you be home at the end of the day?
- Is there an emergency contact number?
- Are there concerns about children, family members or pets during the job?
- What about parking spaces, washroom use, electricity, etc.
The Painters in your home are our staff and sign in on the job daily. At any time you know who is working in your home. We cover your floors and belongings and clean up daily. After job completion we do a walk-through with you, to ensure we did what we promised.
Reviews and Testimonials
Consumer Tip: Ask the estimator if they employ their own painters (on payroll). Can they provide some of their customers’ contact information, maybe a phone number or two? Starting a painting company is easy as the home services industry has very low entry barriers. Anyone with a brush and a ladder can call themselves professional painters.
Ecopainting means Environmental Responsibility and Green Practices.
Ecopainting is a green pioneer for over 20 years. When we first adopted ecopainting as our mandate, “eco” was seen as a marketing niche. A few years later, anything ”eco” or “green” started becoming trendy. Driven by a greener marketplace, governments started regulating what goes in a can of paint. Paints are now safer to use and better for the environment.
Boyd’s Decorating is a Benjamin Moore dealer our Scarborough painters use. Paul Boyd is a well known and respected individual in the painting services industry. Paul said this about us: “Ecopainting is educated on all the ECO products and developments. Anyone hiring these people should know that they come with this knowledge and they know what they are doing”.

2019 Commercial Painting Project: Primo Foods.
Primo Foods is an established name in the Food Industry in Toronto. Their pasta and canned products are popular with consumers and the food industry. In the summer of 2019 they contracted Ecopainting to paint in their Downsview facility
The scope consisted of painting their offices, boardrooms, hallways and common areas with warm colours. We varnished their stained doors and painted the dark industrial trim with softer colours. The work was done at night as to not interfere with their operation. This was a large project with the majority of time spent painting the dark window trim and frames.
When we paint occupied offices our system is a combination of trusted low VOC coatings. This was not any different at the Primo project. We used Stix from INSLX as a primer and their acrylic urethane for trim. For the walls Benjamin Moore’s Ultraspec 500 is a safe choice.
The project was completed in a timely matter and met the client’s budget.
Said Rose from Primo Foods: “Thank you so much to you and your team, they did such an excellent job! They were professional, neat and we did not even know they were here. A great job – well done!O
