Kind words from satisfied customers

“The great thing about working with JD MacGillivray is that not only can you trust him with every recommendation, product and service he provides but most importantly he is a man of his word. If he says he will be at your house at 7:00 a.m. every morning, he will be there every morning at 7:00 sharp. If he says you will be happy with the finish he is recommending for your walls, ceilings, doors or trim you know there is not a better product or finish on the market.


Guaranteed he will remove stucco and prepare ceilings, install crown moulding, do any drywall repair, all trim carpentry, wallpapering and  remove and replace doors, hinges and hardware better than anyone I have ever seen.


JD has been doing exemplary work for over 35 years. He is current with new industry approaches and products and is continuously upgrading his own knowledge and skills.


I have had JD do work in my home for over 20 years and I can personally attest to the fact that you will not find a better painter or a nicer man to have in your home anywhere. He often has a wait list, but guaranteed if you get him, you will have the most professional work possible done in your home.”

–Susan Wagner, Beeton, ON

“After replacing our carpet with hardwood, and having our staircase refreshed, the dated popcorn ceilings and paint in the foyer looked even more in need of some love.  Although our foyer is open to the second floor, this was not a problem for JD, and the stucco was removed with minimal mess.  The addition of crown moulding elevated the look of our entrance from modest to marvelous!  We love the transformation that JD created in our home!”
–Deb Elford, Newmarket, ON

“We have had the distinct privilege of having JD fulfill our decorating needs for over 35 years. His craftsmanship is of the highest quality and we have enjoyed having him work on a variety of indoor and outdoor projects including painting, wallpapering, millwork and numerous renovations.


JD is knowledgeable, personable, efficient and always delivers on time as promised. In addition, he has become our counsel on decorating options and makes the ultimate best recommendations. When you contract with JD, you are also welcomed into an array of top-quality tradesmen of his recommendation. JD is quality and we are delighted to give him our highest endorsement.”

–Marilee & Ron Harris, Aurora, ON

“Our home needed a makeover. We called JD. He walked us through all the possibilities and did a wonderful, professional job. We couldn’t be happier.”

–Ann Tomkins, Aurora, ON

“My husband and I have used the services of JD for over 25 years on a variety of projects in our homes. In fact, there is no one else we would welcome in our home to help us with our painting needs. He has assisted us with colour selection, type of paint to use in various situations and has a keen eye for the details. The quality of his workmanship is the best. In fact, there is little JD doesn’t do. Many jobs have required repairs, drywalling and minor renovations. He’s handled it all for us. We appreciate the extra time he takes to ensure we are completely satisfied. Without hesitation, we would recommend JD’s services with any interior or exterior painting requirements.”

–Elisabeth & Randall Linton, Toronto, ON

“We initially contacted JD to paint our entire house, but were pleased to learn that his skills and expertise allowed him to complete so much more! In addition to painting our entire home (3,000+ sq ft), J-D smoothed all the popcorn ceilings, installed new trim, crown moulding and wainscoting in our dining room. The quality of his workmanship is far superior to any other painter/decorator we’ve used in the past–he is a true professional. JD took the time to get all the details right, while still working at an impressive pace. He takes pride in maintaining a clean workspace, is reliable (always on time!) and a great communicator. JD was flexible when we changed our minds, helpful with the decision-making process, and truly a joy to have in our home every day. Our kids still miss and ask about him two years later! It is rare to find someone you trust 100% in a short amount of time, but JD is that person. He is worth the wait!”

–Heather & Richard Jones, Holland Landing, ON
