Why Commercial Clients Love Working with Ecopainting.
Sarah first contacted and hired Ecopainting when she was the Exhibition Manager at The Bata Shoe Museum. She is currently the Senior Exhibition Manager at the Aga Khan Museum and still relying on our painters to prepare the exhibit areas between shows.
“I have had the pleasure of working with the team at Ecopainting on three separate occasions, each time they have exceeded my expectations. Karon and George are so knowledgeable and the teams they send to the site are amazing, professional, tidy and personable. Ecopainting is always amazing to work with my limited budgets and they are always finished early which is great on projects that are under time pressure.”
Sarah Beam-Borg, Exhibitions Manager – Aga Khan Museum
The next testimonial was sent by Liz, who worked for Harkel Office in Vaughan. In 2009 we were contracted to paint their office headquarters. Two years later they had us back to do some more work for them. Harkel is a well known B2B company and they have graciously recommended us to some of their clients.
“From my first email to your company and your fast and efficient reply I have been impressed w/the professionalism and competence shown by Ecopainting. George came to see me right away, discussed what we needed done and made valuable suggestions regarding eco friendly painting materials. Jennifer and Torrie were efficient, pleasant and did not interfere at all w/the running of our office while doing their job. Their attention to detail on what needed doing and after care to our facilities was terrific. I also totally appreciated the fact that George was on site everyday to answer questions and address any issues. I am satisfied with the work completed by Ecopainting Inc. and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone for their painting needs”

What are the Benefits of a New Paint Job?
A well maintained place is a good place to work. We think often about decorating and painting our home. Yet we spend most of our awake time working. Should we not feel comfortable in our work surroundings as well? People work better in a clean and well maintained environment. Most commercial space sees a lot of activity and wear & tear. Common areas like hallways get beat up with equipment and all the people going through it.
A bright fresh coat of paint can do wonders in raising employee morale. Business and property owners know that certain colours improve productivity and others enhance creative thinking. The colour selection process itself is a fun team building activity.
A well thought out painting job will make you look good to your customers. A company invests a lot of money in branding and marketing. Does your business space portray the brand the same way? Is the look consistent with the feel of the website and your other marketing materials?
Retail stores in particular use paint colour to showcase their products. This is not any different for restaurants, sports and concert venues as well as hotels. Customers know you care about them if your facility is clean and presentable.
Sylvia had opened a jewelry store in the fashionable Yorkville area of Toronto. In her store we used a custom fushia colour and paints mostly from Benjamin Moore. She sent this letter, where she goes into detail about her experience with Ecopainting. Before the days of digital painters reviews, letters of recommendation were solid equity for any contractor.
“As an owner of a retail store, I know and appreciate the true value of a great product and exceptional customer service. Which is why I feel compelled to commend Ecopainting for the great product and service value they have provided me. I contracted Ecopainting to paint a retail space I leased in Yorkville. I knew from the start that it would need a lot of work. The walls had holes and the baseboards were covered with wires that had been painted over many times in the past and now looked like hard globs of stucco. The transformation is unbelievable to anyone who was familiar with this space before. Through dedicated professionalism, their painters transformed what was a disaster zone, into a bright, spacious and glamorous boutique worthy of displaying designer jewellery in Toronto’s Yorkville neighbourhood. From fixing and preparing the walls, to consulting me on suitable colour and Painting techniques, to the cleanup, Ecopainting surpassed my expectations at every turn, and that is what a truly great product and exceptional customer service is about”
Thank you. Silvia C. for Fuschia, retail store in Yorkville.
2017 Featured Commercial Client – Aga Khan Museum
The Aga Khan Museum is becoming one of our favourite clients. The museum has their own maintenance staff but several times a year they call on Ecopainting to help out with last minute projects.
The Aga Khan is a museum of Islamic art, Iranian art and Muslim culture in Toronto. It is located at 77 Wynford Dr in North York. The museum is an initiative of the Aga Khan Trust for Culture, an agency of the Aga Khan Development Network.
The building was designed by Fumihiko Maki, a winner of the Pritzker Architecture Prize. The architect used light as his inspiration. You can certainly feel that throughout the spacious halls and the open roofed courtyard. Despite its compact footprint, the building has a large theatre, classrooms, art conservation spaces and two beautiful exhibition galleries.
When it comes time to prepare the galleries for the new exhibits they call on Ecopainting. These are last minute, “all out projects” with tight deadlines, as the new exhibit is usually around the corner. Despite all that, our painters find these projects enjoyable for many reasons:
- The colours chosen by the museum designers are interesting as they need to become the backdrop of the upcoming designs.
- The Quality of the paint specified is always top of the line, mostly Benjamin Moore’s Aura. Aura with its quick dry and superior hiding offers quick turnaround and the durability required for busy exhibit halls.
- The staff throughout the facility are hospitable and very helpful. Right from the loading dock all the way through to project completion, there is always someone there to answer our questions.
The importance of this institution in the Toronto landscape is reason enough for us to choose them as a featured commercial painting client in 2017.
Ecopainting is different than most painting contractors in the GTA. We offer value tailored to match the specific needs of our customers.
