Calgary Painting Process
Job Process


General ideas about painting:

Upon arranging for an estimate, I will be happy to meet with you on-site to discuss your painting project in calgary. I then provide you with a written estimate detailing the areas to be painted, the preparation process and the types of paint and number of coats to be applied. As part of each and every estimate, I am pleased to provide you with an extensive list of references, our WCB, liability insurance and city licensing information. If at that point, you choose to move forward with your painting project, we will be happy to deliver a color-deck to you so that you can explore all of your color options without having to drive from one store to another. I will be happy to assist you in the color selection process, and bring a sample of your chosen color and apply it to the surface being painted.
