Clean & Professional

While this wasn't the most glamorous project request, it needed to be done right. I needed to revert the dark, jewel-toned walls in my rental back to their original, white state, with the usual minor wall repairs. I left Daniel and his team with the keys, and went about my business elsewhere...moving, etc. A couple of days later, I had a perfect job, and not a trace that the painters, or I had ever been there. Just what I needed. Great job, guys! (not sure how this review ended up in "Duct Cleaning", but, anyway...)

Kitchen Reno & Paint Job

Strokes of Genius was hired to do our kitchen renovation and to paint the main floor and most of the 2nd floor of our house. Dan worked with us to collaborate on ideas for what would work in our space, what would meet our needs and what would achieve our desired aesthetic. He went above and beyond to research alternative options for us and helped us to find products that would work in our space, such as a hood fan and garbage bins. Wenare very happy with the end result.

Painting for full house

Daniel and his team did a very nice work. This is a very professional company. You notice the professionalism since you receive the estimates. Very clear and precise. The painters Christian and Eleno did an excellent job. Very punctual every morning and took care of every detail. This is our second job with Daniel's company and both of them have been a very pleased experience.

Thanks so much for your positive feedback Oscar! We have loved working for you both times and my only regret is that we have now painted your entire new home and there is nothing left for us to do!

House Painting

We hired Strokes of Genius to paint the whole house upon moving in, which included walls, baseboards, doors, closets and crown molding. They did a fantastic job! Connor, Emma and Erik were perfect, and I felt they really cared about doing the best job possible. Not only did Strokes of Genius paint, but they also installed crown molding in the family room, providing the perfect look. Have already recommended them to a number of family members and friends. Truly a superb job!

Excellent Service

I am so happy with the work done by Strokes of Genius. They do excellent work and stick to the schedule. They painted our whole main floor, basement, stairwells and hallways. All done in 3 days! We had a great working with us and the management, Daniel, was always accessible. They also have very competitive pricing. I would be happy to work with them again. Thank you!

Strokes of Genius does it again!

We hired Daniel for a huge (top to bottom) interior paint in our last house and a smaller interior paint job in our current house. Both times I was very impressed with the quality of work for a great price. Just hired his guys again for an exterior paint/stain job. Took a little longer than usual to get his guys out (not his fault- it's being raining non stop this summer), but when the weather finally cleared up and the forecast was favourable, he sent his painters (Brad and Pierre) out right away. They did a fantastic job and ensured we were happy with the work/stain colour throughout the project.
Thanks again Daniel and the Strokes of Genius team! Looking forward to future projects with you.

Painting Project

I requested a consult on a large scale painting project. Involved a two story hallway, upper hallway space, Master bed and bath. The price included paint and labor. Work was slated within a week and completed as promised. Two individuals were prompt efficient and completed within a day and a half. Clean up was impeccable and the job was excellent. We will definitely be using this company when we move as we will need a complete bungalow paint job.

Interior painting

We initially hired Daniel and his team from Strokes of Genius to paint a rental condo unit in Westboro. The walls needed much repair with significant damage to the drywall. Daniel and his team not only repaired and painted the walls flawlessly, they also touched up scratches in the hardwood floor.
We requested quotes from other companies to paint our home and Stroked of Genius Had the best pricing. We hired them again for a rental unit. Each job was completed professionally by an experienced, polite team that takes pride in their work, works diligently and leaves the site clean and replacing any fixtures that would be expected. I would not hesitate to recommend this company for any residential or commercial job.
