painting of full home and refinishing floors

Strokes of Genius painted my home (2300+ sqft) in full top to bottom in 2015...two coats ceilings walls trim and doors complete ...Did such an amazing job hired them again for same home to refresh with one coat walls doors and trim and to refinish hardwood floors main level. In both instances they far exceeded my expectations both in workmanship and professionalism. They stuck to their quote, showed up when they said and went above and beyond to accommodate us in every aspect! Would not hesitate to refer them...Great job guys and thanks again Daniel and Crew!

2 jobs, 2 houses, immaculate and meticulous work both times

I hired these guys twice for two separate jobs and the work in both time was great. They’re professionals who don’t rush the process. The first job was painting four rooms in townhouse and the whole ceiling of one floor, and the second was painting a whole 2 story home.

Connor and Emma did the work both times and these guys have been clearly doing this for a long time. I couldn’t be happier with the work.

On the admin side, Daniel is great to deal with. Quick and fair quotes, and the process was seamless.

Several house upgrades; amazing team

After buying our new home, we originally contacted Daniel to just have the house painted. We learned that he has a whole team working with him, so in addition, we had our kitchen backsplash done, a feature wall created in the living room completed with floating shelves, mantle, and stonework, as well as a storage bench for our breakfast nook, and a bar and kids stage created in our basement. Daniel and his team did an amazing job here; the painting was done with beautiful detail, and all the projects we added were done very well and efficiently. Like I told Daniel, we have even more upgrades we’d love to do over the years, and we’ll absolutely be contacting Strokes of Genius to have the work done. Everyone we interacted with was very kind and hard working, but Daniel in particular made sure to always make himself available for any questions or changes we had. It was obvious he cared about getting the jobs done right. Can’t recommend enough!

Kitchen refacing and backsplash

We worked with Daniel on recommendation from Swedish Door on a kitchen refacing, repainting and tile project. Daniel was responsive, helpful and creative, and we love how our kitchen came out. As with any refacing job, small unforeseen problems arose as we retrofitted what we had in place already, but Daniel was always quick with a solution, making multiple trips to the job site (and Home Depot) without complaint. We really appreciate his attention to detail and helpful attitude.

Bathroom renovation

A friend recommended Dan and Stroke of Genius for our bathroom Reno. From day one, we were extremely pleased by the work done by Dan and his team. He even showed up with coffee on the first day. Can’t beat that!! We were so pleased with his work that we’ve already recommended Stroke of Genius to a family member, and would be more than happy to recommend to anyone else who’s looking for an awesome team for any home renovation project.

Highly recommended

I will definitely vouch for this company; these guys were professional and performed top quality work in our unit for extremely competitive and decent prices. I highly recommended them as they were conscientious in their work ethic and application, and were patient with our pickiness. Thank you Daniel, Connor and Emma for super-satisfactory results and experience.

Interior house painting, patching, mudding, sanding

I hired Strokes of Genius Painting when I first bought my house. They were amazing, fast, and professional. I used the company again more recently for ceiling repairs and painting and had the same great results. The prices are very reasonable and I doubt you would find a better deal out there. I highly recommend Stokes of Genius for any big or small projects.

Impeccable quality

Daniel and his team took on my project on a very short notice and did an excellent job! I was putting my house on the market and needed to prepare it within a week. The quality of painting is great, the edges are crisp, the layers look perfectly even, and the price was more than fair. They also worked with the stager to ensure that the colours are correct and that the walls and ceilings look perfect for the photos.

Daniel also communicated with me throughout the entire process: he gave me an accurate estimate of the length of the project, how many painters will work the job, and made sure the painters leave the site clean after the job is done.

Overall, 10/10!

Outstanding on all fronts

We had a number recommendations from one of Ottawa's top realtors. After seeing a few, we knew that Strokes of Genius was the best choice - and they didn't disappoint at all.
While assessing the project, Daniel gave us a thorough overview of his company (things like years of experience, insurance, and security...which frankly matter a fair bit). When his price came in, we were pleased that it was well within our budget...in fact the best price we received!
The morning of the project Emma and Connor arrived exactly when they said they would, introduced themselves and immediately went to work...total professionals with exceptional attention to detail, accuracy, and cleanliness. The painting included some extremely high ceilings, worn base boards and window frames, and more scuffs and nail-pops than I'd noticed over the past 20 years. The finished product was outstanding...almost makes it look like a brand new house!
Thank you Strokes of Genius- and thanks Emma and Connor!
