Kitchen cabinets restain

Josh and his team were amazing to work with. Josh sent quote quickly and his team started job within a week of the quote.
John and David were professional, very courteous, and did a great job, they had to come back a couple of times for touch ups- but did so without any questions and ensured the job was done to our liking. They were clean and made sure there was no mess left behind. Would definitely recommend them to anyone that has cabinets that need a face lift! Great job guys - thank you!

House Painting

I had Josh completely paint a rental house for me. The house was in rough shape from the old tenants (and a previous bad paint job), and the new tenants were moving in quickly. Josh and his team did an amazing job fixing the walls, baseboards and getting everything painted quickly. Highly recommended!

A dependable & courteous team

We became acquainted with Josh and his team from Cal–res Coatings, particularly David, when we hired Absolut Kitchens and Renovations for some updates in our kitchen. David was in our home most often and he was not only skilled in his trade but he was always punctual, courteous and took special care to get everything just perfect. The job was completed totally to our satisfaction. We would most definitely hire them once again.

Exterior House Painting

It was a pleasure working with Cal Res! They got us a quote within hours of asking, gave us a good deal and did a wonderful job on the house. We've received many compliments and a few different neighbors have even asked for their contact info after seeing the results. Plus, it's always a bonus when your painter is a dog person!!

Exterior House Painting

Hired this company to paint the exterior of a 20 yr old stucco house. Very pleased with Josh and his crew and the work they did.

Very easy to work with. Would rate them 10 out of 10 for professionalism and quality of work.

Interior Painting

I hired Cal-res to paint my new home that I just bought. I thought they seemed expensive, but they had good reviews so I was willing to pay top prices in order to get great quality. What I liked about this company is; I didn't have to pay anything until the job was complete, they worked very quickly, and the quality of the painting is pretty good, Everyone I met was very nice, but I can't say that I'm as happy as I should be for what I paid. I decided I wanted to hire them before I got possession of the house so I had to make an appointment with the "then" owners to be able to come and take measurements. I showed up to the house with my realtor, and nobody showed from Cal-Res. I called and Josh was very apologetic and said he had forgotten, so I figured I would just make another appointment to get it done. When we did end up meeting, I asked for him to give me a quote to refinish my cabinets, and he never did send it. Painting day came and it only took a short while before it was pretty complete. I showed up on the day that I was told it would be done by, and I found it in a state that did not look finished at all. Many switch plate covers had not been replaced, and some that were had been screwed too tight and were broken. There were coffee cups and garbage laying around. A large crack that had not been filled, just painted over. droplets of paint all over the place, on my hardwood, bathtub, toilet. a large coffee stain in the middle of my carpet. An entire room painted that I had specifically asked not to be. Painters tape still up. A valance had been replaced that was now covered in dirty fingerprints. Somebody had come in with muddy shoes and tracked mud on the carpets. A portion of a wall had only gotten one coat, and it was very obvious. I now have a very large scratch in my hardwood floor. The key that they had used was left in the doorknob and not in the lock box. The list goes on. It did not seem like much care was taken with my home at all I assumed that they had just not finished the job, but I was told that it was complete. When I raised my concerns, somebody came over quite quickly to address my concerns, which I was very happy about. I was told that the stain in the carpet was there before, even though it was still wet when I cam to check on the progress right after they had left and nobody else had been in the house. They tried to get it out, but I'm still left with a big stain. The partial wall that only got one coat never did get a second. My beautiful floor still has a big scratch. Still broken switch plates, one not replaced, and screws missing from some, which every now and then I find with my foot in the carpet. And I still have one room painted that shouldn't have been, with no offer at all to change it. I expected that I would receive a call to check on my satisfaction, but I never did.

***Update***

I'm very happy with everything that was done to address my concerns. Cal-Res came over very quickly and went above and beyond to make sure I was happy. There is a reason they have great reviews.

Painting of interior of condo

Josh was very professional, very easy to work with and very helpful with choosing paint color. They did a sample on the wall for me to see what it would look like. They were very neat and tidy, no mess what so ever. They even cleaned behind the fridge and the washer/dryer. Very friendly and caring. The whole process was a pleasure. Thank you to Josh and I would highly recommend them.

Painting

I had Cal-Res complete a project of painting my main floor, foyer, up the stairs and in the upstairs hallway. The team were punctual, very efficient in their work. They did an excellent job and were extremely competent and professional to work with. The final touches were followed up with in a timely manner and they were very attentive to ensuring my complete satisfaction. I would highly recommend this team.

Stucco Painting

Cal-Res Coatings did an excellent job painting our stucco.

Having seen our neighbors home being painted hastily and rather poorly we were a little concerned about having ours done.

Joshua put together a very descriptive quote (describing how protection and covering of things which weren't being painted would be done) and was very knowledgeable about the different paints and coatings for stucco. He also guaranteed the work for 5 years!

We also were surprised to find out that their company does all the paint recycling for the Calgary area. Now I know what happens when I take leftover paint to the fire hall.

Beyond all of that, the work was completed in a timely fashion, by friendly and skilled painters (John and Daniel). We felt at ease with everyone involved with the project.

We give Cal-Res an A+ and have hired them to do some interior painting as well.

Mission Fitness

The work I received was outstanding...the team was prompt, and delivered top notice service. One of my favourite things about working with Cal-Res was the constant check-ins with respect to the work they were doing and quality assurance. Definitely "Aces" in our world!
