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!

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!
