Toronto Commercial & Residential Painters
Ecopainting is not just another painting contractor. Yes, we offer residential and commercial painting services but what really sets our company apart?
The customer will always receive “Hassle Free” services
We don’t use sub-contractors and rely on our own trained professionals
We have a responsibility to our community and the environment
Ecopainting has been painting homes and buildings in the GTA for over 25 years. Whether you are a homeowner or a building manager, we want the opportunity to exceed your expectations.
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.
Expect your painting contractor to have systems designed to minimize the inconveniences. Ask about their procedures and customer service.
Discuss the channels and frequency of communication during the project.
Expect your painting contractor to be professional and be staffed by their own employees.
Is the company environmentally sound? What products do they use and do they follow the manufacturers’ recommendations?
Expect proof of WSIB, Liability Insurance & Safety Certifications.
“Our warehouse in Markham needed a lot of work and most of it was done after business hours. Your painters were professional, hardworking and always helpful. We will be using Ecopainting again and again. Free to use us as a reference”
Cindy R. Commercial Painting in Markham
“I had a chance to go and see and the finished product looks great. I have been amazed at how little disruption it was, with the painting going on during business hours. I think it is a testament to the quality of work of you and your staff. Thanks.”

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.
The Painting Estimate and Proposal
“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.
The Actual Painting Experience
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.
“Karon and her team surpassed my expectations. The prep work was meticulous and great attention was also paid to all the coats of paint. George helped with paint colours and visited our home twice before the work started. I ‘d recommend Ecopainting to anyone”

Reviews and Testimonials
Painters reviews in this digital age are like reputation equity. Earning a solid reputation in the community takes diligence and hard work. A painting company with a good online reputation is often seen as more trustworthy. After every job we ask the customer to rate their crew and write a testimonial. We also encourage them to review us in Google and Facebook. Our painting services have earned us hundreds of testimonials, reviews and recommendations online. Read some of our Google reviews here.
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”.
Schomberg Exterior is the 2020 Project of the Year
The spring of 2020 was a difficult one for many contractors and painters in particular. Our main focus was the safety of our painters and our customers peace of mind. Homeowners were uneasy inviting strangers into their home and decided to tackle the maintenance of their home exteriors instead. It was only natural that we were also comfortable working on exterior painting projects.
Chris and Jessica were such clients. They contracted with Ecopainting to paint and stain the exterior of their lovely Schomberg home.
The Scope – Paint and Stain Specification
- Apply two coats of stain on the board & batten siding.
- Remove the shutters and re-install after painting.
- Paint the window frames, screen door and frame white.
- Prep of surfaces including filling major holes with exterior wood filler
Products and colours. After inspecting the home we suggested products from Sansin Stains or Benjamin Moore. The customers liked the colour Hale Navy from Benjamin Moore’s solid stain collection. The trim paint will be from Benjamin Moore’s Regal and Ben lines in white.
Challenges and Concerns. The electrical power lines were very close to the work area. The standard procedure is to have the power-lines covered for safety. This was not a good option for the customer at this time because of the waiting period. The local hydro suggested that they disconnect the power for a few hours. We went with that suggestion as it gave the crew sufficient time to paint in the proximity of the wires.
Conclusion. The project was completed successfully and the home looks beautiful. The Customer was ecstatic with the new look and not surprisingly we are now getting more referrals and enquiries to paint in Schomberg.
