8 Reasons to Choose Us as Your Painter

1. Detailed Quote

We visit your home, assess what needs to be done and then put together a detailed quote that confirms exactly what we will be providing.

2. Meet Deadlines

If you have a deadline, we’ll meet it. If we don’t think we can, we won’t take your job on.

3. Arrive on Time

We show up when we say we will.

4. Headlamps

In addition to an 8000 Lumen tripod light, we wear high-intensity headlamps all day long to ensure we never miss a spot when repairing, preparing or painting.

5. Proper Preparation

Proper preparation is the difference between a mediocre paint job and a great paint job. Our prep work is second to none.

6. Your Job is Our Priority

We start your job and work till it’s complete. The only time we may leave your site is when materials require extended time to dry before they can be painted.

7. Expert Always On Site

Our owner, JD MacGillivray, does more than prepare your quote. He’s our lead painter so he’s always doing the work and available to answer your questions.

8. We Clean Up After the Job

When the painting is complete we dust and vacuum, move furniture back into place and re-hang your pictures.


The Secret to a Great Paint Job

Our goal as painters is not to wow you by getting in and out of your house in a day. We want to impress you with the final painted product. The key to accomplishing this is proper preparation. Sometimes repair and patching compounds, caulking and primers—even certain paints—require overnight drying before a coat of paint can be applied. We don’t compromise on preparation. That’s why we take all the time that is necessary to ensure your project is properly prepared before we begin painting.
