A Local Toronto Painting Company

Ecopainting is a company of local Toronto Painters. We have always been servicing the Toronto area, so writing a blog about it may seem like overstating the obvious. Yet this question of what is a local business and how Google defines it is vital to service companies. In the case of our Painting Company, being local is a matter of great importance. Google has decided that unless a company has an actual physical location a few miles from Toronto City Hall, it is not worthy to be found in local search results. Even a painting company servicing and working the downtown area is not necessarily local. This is definitely a challenge for a small business with a limited budget. Purchasing or renting office space close to the centre of a city is very expensive and therefore prohibitive.

What makes us a Local Toronto Painting Company

Toronto’s borders are listed in Wikipedia as: Lake Ontario to the south, Etobicoke Creek and Highway 427 to the west, Steeles Avenue to the north and the Rouge River and the Scarborough-Pickering Townline to the east. As far as I know, this is quite accurate and it has been since the Amalgamation decision. Our office space is located in Scarborough, which is definitely within Toronto’s borders. Our Morningside and 401 location was decided because it was spacious, inexpensive and convenient to most of us. We do some painting in Scarborough, but the majority of our customers are definitely in the core of the city. As far as geography goes, we are not any less of a local Toronto Painting company because of our mailing address.

We paint here

The majority of our business and painting activity takes place in Toronto. That should be reason enough to call us a local Toronto Painting Company. There are other reasons and I will list some of them, as I feel that they are important. We are also planning to write a series of blogs about projects and experiences in the different Toronto neighbourhoods. Neighbourhoods like the Beaches, Riverdale, Parkdale and others make Toronto what it is.  Our company has been painting for customers in these neighbourhoods for years. I don’t want to sound anachronistic with the following comment, but we were here before Google search even existed.

We live here

Most of our painters live in the city of Toronto. We shop, commute and even have fun in the city when we are not working. We will travel anywhere to wherever the painting work is but we prefer to work local. Working close to home helps reduce our ecological footprint. Two summers ago we even had a crew comprised of cyclists servicing the downtown. They were encouraged to use their bikes daily and were painting all over the city, from Parkdale to the Beaches. Our vehicles are seen downtown daily, our lawn signs are everywhere and in the summer you can see our painters painting Toronto exteriors. Our paint suppliers are also located in Toronto, which makes purchasing materials more convenient.

We are part of the community

The issues that Toronto residents face affect us as much as anyone else. Our company has been a member of the community, participated in it and even donated volunteer work in the past. Some of our customers are respected community leaders and organizations. Our customers include the Parkdale Community Health Clinic, the Copernicus Lodge, historic churches, co-ops and buildings. We painted for the Arts Community of Toronto, including institutions such as the DX Exchange, The Bata Shoe Museum and others.
Our client list includes Diplomatic Missions and major Consulates in Toronto.

Residential & Commercial Painting in Toronto

Fifty percent of our work is Residential Painting. In the summer you may see our Toronto painters painting the exterior of homes in the downtown area. Our exterior and interior work earned us hundreds of testimonials. We service condominium apartments, lofts, single homes and rental units.
Our Commercial work includes the painting of establishments like the following:

  • Condominium buildings, entire townhouse and co-op complexes
  • Storefronts on Queen street, Adelaide, Yonge street, and other busy streets in Toronto.
  • Business space in major downtown office buildings
  • Retail stores, restaurants and entertainment venues
  • Community centres, schools, care facilities, hospitals and transportation stations.
Ecopainting is as local as any Toronto Painting company can be.
If you need any painting services call us at 416 733-7767 or better yet, if you see one of our vehicles or painters just approach and talk to them.
