Toronto Painters with Commercial & Residential Services

Ecopainting is a company of Toronto painters offering commercial & residential services. What drives our company is our commitment to the community, the environment and our painters. We promise a nightmare free service, backed by hundreds of reviews & testimonials. To make this possible, we use our own professional painters and never use sub-contractors.

For the past 20 years we painted the interior and exterior of several buildings and homes throughout the GTA. We work in offices, clinics, churches and learning institutions. Our customers are designers, commercial managers and homeowners.

What Should You Expect From Your Commercial Painters?

You are a facility manager responsible for the maintenance of a commercial building. There is only so much budget to go arround and commercial painting is not something you do annually. Renovations are an inconvenience for the staff and the users of the building. Closing down is almost never an option and afterhours work is difficult.
Expect your paint contractor to have systems to minimize these inconveniences. Communication channels and frequency should be discussed before starting the project.

Expect the contractor to be professional. Ask about their procedures, systems and staff policies. Is the company environmentally sound?  What products do they use and do they follow the manufacturers’ recommendations?

“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 feel 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.”  Marion C. Building owner on Broadview Avenue.

Taking Care of your Home Painting Needs.

Finding the right house painters for your home is a time consuming endeavour, so you want to do it right. Ask your friends or neighbours if they have a company they can recommend. You can search in social media or google “Painters Toronto” and arrange an estimate. Since everyone promises “quality work at reasonable prices”, what should your expectations be? Will this be a pleasant experience?
Let’s walk through the process we use at Ecopainting:

The Consultation 

When you 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 also the time to interview the painting contractor. We welcome all your questions and address your concerns. Why not ask about our painters and who will be doing the actual painting? Ecopainting guarantees to never use sub-contractors.

Do you live in a condo? This is the time to discuss parking, loading, elevator use and all the details specific to condo buildings.

The Painting Estimate and Proposal

A proposal is way more than just an estimate. It’s the roadmap of a great customer experience and adds transparency to the process.

The “Scope of Work” lists what gets painted and what does not. For example: how many coats, what grade paint, which primer. Here we also detail the level of prep and how we protect your property. The “Colour Schedule” lists which colour go in each room and area. This may be prepared by a colour consultant or designer. Pricing is usually for the entire job but can be broken down for different options. The quoted price is fixed unless the scope of work changes. Any such changes must be authorized in writing by the customer. The proposal also includes imformation about our company. Insurance documentation, references, warranty information, etc.

The Actual Painting Experience

After you decide to go with Ecopainting, what is next?
We will suggest a start date and confirm it a few days before. Before starting, the job manager will review the scope of work with you and discuss the following:  

  • 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.

Discussing the details will give you the peace of mind that everything will be smooth.

The painters in your home will be our own trained employees. You will know who is working in your home and get a daily report. We will cover your floors and belongings and clean up every day. At the end of the project  there will be a walk-through with you, to ensure that the scope of work is completed.

“Karon and her team surpassed my expectations. The prep work 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. Companies with good online reviews are seen as more trustworthy. After every job we ask the customer to rate their crew and provide a testimonial. We also encourage them to review us in Google and Facebook. Ecopainting has hundreds of testimonials and reviews and recommendations online.

Consumer Tip: Ask the sales person if they employ their own painters (on payroll). Ask them for some customer contact information, even a phone number or two. This is a simple business to start, and anyone with a brush and a ladder calls themselves a painter.

The “eco” in Ecopainting means Environmental Responsibility and Green Practices.

Ecopainting is a pioneer in the Toronto green painting scene. 18 years ago we changed our company name to Ecopainting Inc. At the time an eco-friendly painting company was considered a marketing niche. Nobody thought there were customers that would pay extra to be green. A few years later, anything ”eco” or “green” started becoming trendy. Driven by a greener marketplace, governments started regulating more of what goes i a can of paint. Paints became safer to use and better for the environment. Zero VOC is now the new standard for coatings manufacturers. The eco-friendly bandwagon is getting crowded as more contractors are jumping on it. This is a positive development for our industry but what is next? Where do we go from here?
Paint contractors have a responsibility to take “green” to the next level. Specifying zero VOC paint is not enough. What about daily operating procedures such as waste disposal, or management of wash water? What about recycling of leftover paints and construction materials? And do we need to be driving in gas guzzling trucks and vans? Everything we do should be getting an environmental audit.
