Residential House Painting

Homeowners looking for residential Toronto painters have a challenge on their hands. Painting is a professional service and customer satisfaction depends on the service provider. It is not only about putting the paint on the surface, not even about how good the painters are. The smart consumer wants house painters that can manage the entire experience. It all starts with the first call and the estimate. Expectations need to be clear, right from the start. The customer and the contractor should always be on the same page. This should continue throughout the duration of the paint job.

Fact: Most contractors on the first page of Google don’t have their own employees.
We can discuss paint later, and we can talk about colour but who will do the actual painting? The painters will be around your family, your pets, your home.
Before signing the contract, ask the salesperson: who would you send to my home? Ask him about their painters, be inquisitive, this is important. How long have they worked for the company? Are they in fact employees of the company? These are fair questions that have clear answers.

Interior Painting Services 

Paint and coatings technology have come a long way. Flats are more washable and glossy finishes are odourless. The colour and interior decor industry is blossoming with exciting decor ideas. Homeowners follow decorating blogs and frequent social media sites for inspiration. If that is not enough, professional colour help is widely accessible. Colour consultants can turn the client’s inspiration into beautiful living spaces. There are even decorative finishes for  adventurous homeowners.

A good painter knows that preparation is the key to a paint job. Surfaces must be clean and dust free. A good interior painting job includes patching & sanding of cracks, holes and imperfections. Covering and masking will protect the customer’s property and valuables. The quality of paint is important for many reasons. Good paint has low odour, is more washable and it looks better. The cost of paint itself is less than 20% of the contract price. Using top quality paint is a wise financial decision.

Exterior House Painting Services

Coming home to a freshly painted exterior is an amazing feeling. Curb appeal is important to Toronto residents. Beautiful homes in different styles are in every neighbourhood.  How important is curb appeal and home maintenance? Pride of ownership aside, a well maintained home is money well spent.
Toronto winters are harsh and exterior surfaces take a beating. Surfaces exposed to the elements need the most protection. Wood replacement is expensive and finding good carpenters is an adventure in itself. A good paint job with quality paints is the best insurance against the elements.

How do you make your exterior paint last longer? By hiring the best contractors and using the best paint.

Is it a Good Idea to Paint the House Before Selling?

Most real estate professionals will suggest painting your home before listing it. It makes their job easier and they can listed at a higher price. House prices in Toronto are some of the highest in the country. Making a home more presentable is a good investment. Painting for resale purposes does not have to be expensive. Rooms need to look neutral and warm and surfaces maintained. There should be no sign of water damage or previous wall damage. The exterior of the home is about making a great first impression. Paint the front of the house with colours that blend well with it’s surroundings. Address any carpentry issues and caulk the windows where necessary. Your real estate agent may be a resource for paint contractors and staging professionals.

About the Paint Job of a Brand New Home

There is something invigorating about moving into a new home. Starting new, in a new subdivision, holds a lot of intrigue to homeowners. Newer designs, modern amenities, it’s a new promise for family living. The whole process is about that promise and whether the builder delivered on it. From the paint contractors perspective that promise is rarely kept. Most new homes do not make the grade. The paint is cheap and it looks cheap. The finish quality and priming are usually inferior. Homeowners can address these issues but they will likely not get a resolution. It’s a good idea to live in the home for a full year before redecorating. The most important paint job for a home is the first one after the builder’s. Look at Ecopainting for your new home painting services.

Are you painting your condo? Perhaps your new loft needs paint.

Toronto residents are moving into condominiums in large numbers. It may be lifestyle reasons, convenience or just downsizing. Whatever the reason, a big number of condos is changing hands. New condos are also sprouting up everywhere. Signage and advertisements are promoting the condo and loft lifestyle. Experts have been predicting the demise of the condo real estate market for years. Yet there are buyers for all new condo housing so far. Who is actually going to paint all these condos? There are important details to consider when hiring painters. Are they experienced with painting condos? There are building regulations about parking and loading. Do they have enough painters to accommodate a last minute closing date? Is it possible to get a quote before getting possession of the unit? And what about the paint job and the customer experience?

Crishyami contracted Ecopainting to decorate her North York condo. Her number one concern was convenience and timing. Crishyami was pleasantly surprised after her condo was completely transformed in just one day:
“The place looks great and the work was very detailed and neat. Sarah and Carlos were extremely efficient and completed the work way ahead of schedule. Which was a pleasant surprise!”
