House painting

When we decided to paint the entire main floor, we had Strokes of Genius to give us one of the quote. From the get go, Dan was very transparent and gave us a quote for the complete work and with the best paint. Not like others who gave us quote with sub service such as touch up on baseboard and lower paint quality. Dan was able to help us immediatly with one of our issue which was finding the right paint colour. He recommended us an interior designer who helped us choosing the right colour.

Frank (François) was the gentlemen who showed up the first day . Frank was very polite and very professional. He did a first assessment and provided some suggestion for the work. Some of his suggestion was things that we didn't think of, ideas and how to care for the paint after. At the end of the day, Frank always cleaned up after him and made sure that everything was put away. Everyday, Frank asked if we were happy we the result so far. At the end of the work, Frank ensure that we had a chance to do a full review and suggested to bring Dan for the final review if we wanted. The floor has been cleaned of the dust and there was not even a trace that he was in our home. I can't press enough how happy we were with the quality of the work, how quick it was done and for Frank. We will for sure work we Stroke of Genius on our next project and will request that Frank do the job.

Interior painting of two main floors of townhome for house resale

Daniel did an amazing job and didn't even blink when I asked for an extremely short turnaround on the work. His crew did a beautiful job and my house looked great. It helped my home sell in less than 36 hours. Thanks Daniel!

Realtor Review

As a Realtor, punctuality, cost benefit, and customer satisfaction are all highly important criteria when conducting business. Strokes of Genius Painting" were hired to paint a clients property. The work was of high quality, done efficiently and in an timely manner. A $2,400 paint jog resulted in an increase in perceptual value of $20,000. The property is now sold !

Painted interior

Strokes of Genius Painting painted my new home both on budget and on time. While this is now considered impressive for any contractor, Strokes of Genius Painting's high level of customer service went way beyond merely 'on budget and on time' to make sure that I was completely satisfied with the project, including their fine attention to detail, impecable tidy-up after the project, and even fixing mistakes made by a previous contractor. Not only would I recommend this firm to a friend... I already have (to several!).

Home Painting

We had Daniel and his company paint our new house. We are thrilled with the service and level of commitment that everybody showed to get the job done. Our house became just the way we wanted in the time that Daniel committed to us that the job would be done. His crew were outstanding and very committed to their work. I have already recommended them twice. You won't be disappointed.

new home painting

We had Strokes of Genius do a bunch of painting in the house we purchased before we moved in. Dan came over and gave us a quick and fair quote with a comprehensive breakdown of the costs for each room and trim so we could pick and choose if we wanted. His team got then entire job done in just over 2 days. We were very pleased with the quality, the price, and the experience. Dan and his team provide a professional and quality service with a sebse of pride of workmanship. I would recommend them to anyone without hesitation.

Interior house painting

Last year I hired Strokes of Genius to paint most of the interior of my home including ceilings and trim. It was a large job and they did it very well - even repainting rooms when I was not happy with the color. They stayed on schedule and their prices were very reasonable.

I recently hired them again to paint two more rooms and, once again, they did a great job. I would definitely recommend them to anyone needing these services.

Showroom and our customers homes

In working with strokes of Genius, it was quite obvious that they take their job very seriously. Their attention to detail and professionalism exceeded our expectations and we will certainly use them again for our future projects internally as well as recommend them to our own clients. The customer service they provided us was excellent as they made sure we were 100% satisfied with the work before the job was considered over. We did notice that there was one part on a wall that had a thin coat and they were more than happy to send someone out right away to make it right. This is how service should be and I can say with confidence that they stand behind their work. Great Job guys!
