House Painting

My husband and I are beyond satisfied with the work that Strokes of Genius did on our house. Daniel, the owner, and Rick and Luc, the painters, are extremely professional, friendly, and are committed to doing a great job. Our house looks fabulous -- the quality is amazing. The work was hardly a disruption. The painters did a great job of cleaning up each night and they were very careful with putting down drop cloths and covering our furniture so there were no damages.

We had originally hired another painting company and they absolutely destroyed our house - destroyed our furniture, with paint on the carpet, paint on the hardwood, you name it. It was so bad, we had to let them go. We saw the great reviews Strokes of Genius was getting, so we called Daniel for a quote. After explaining that we needed his team to come in a-la-Mike Holmes and repair and repaint our house after what the first company had done, Daniel had his team lined up within four days.

So words of advice, if you want the job done RIGHT the first time, contact Strokes of Genius. You will not regret it!

The team did a great job at our house. The fresh coats of paint helped sell our house in no time (6 days). We will certainly call on their services again. Thank you Daniel and your team (Connor and company).

The living room and dining room look awesome!!! Connor and Emma did a great job. They were very professional and very accommodating. What a difference a coat of paint can make in a room - the transformation is unbelievable and I'm so happy to be rid of that mint green once and for all! I should also let you know that my mother-in-law, who once owned her own painting business for 30 years, and is not at all easy to please, was very impressed with your work. And my husband is now thinking of what we can have painted next – yahoo!

New Office Paint

Strokes of Genius Painting recently painted my new office building in Ottawa. We completely renovated the space, and the paint job makes it look complete. Extremely professional and on time, and we got exactly what we paid for.
Great work! Highly Recommended.

Daniel, I wanted to take the time to say Thank You to you and your crew Julien and Adam who accomplish in one day what would have taken me about a month or more. Julien and Adam are very professional, trustworthy and made me feel at ease right away. I was so happy that they were available to finish the painting of approximately 1,000 square feet in one day. This full day of work included the main entrance, bathroom, living area, dining room, kitchen, the 2nd storey hallway and stairwell. Most areas required 2 coats of paint. My stairwell is two storeys in height and it is not evident how to proceed to paint the top part and cut around a window at the top of the back wall. Julien and Adam probably cut around 15 doors or more, yet all of this was accomplished and done in one day... what a miracle ! I love my painted house. I am so happy with Adam and Julien's painting expertise. Both have talent, this is evident when looking at the brown color wall meeting a beige one and the green wall meeting up to a beige wall all their lines were crisp, clean and perfect. Most days, I find many people do not take the time to say thank you or how grateful they are about a job perfectly done. I am extremely satisfied and happy to have this huge project (that I was discourraged to take on by myself) to be completely finished in ONE day by Julien and Adam. I would recommend your services to all my friends and family ... and possibly any future painting projects I might decide to take on. I am very grateful for your help and availability on such a short notice Adam and Julien, you guys ROCK ! and made my Easter Holiday a very special one... in a very nicely painted house!

Strokes of Genius painted my condo after I was disatisfied with a painting crew that had initially painted my condo.

I had originally hired a painting crew to paint my 12oo square foot condo. Their work was abysmal. Although neat and tidy they forgot to prime in certain areas, they failed to paint a second coat in other areas, certain walls had an orange peel effect, window ledges were forgotten and areas of the baseboards were never painted whatsoever.

I met with Daniel Smith of Strokes of Genius and Daniel explained how he could rectify my situation.

Francois, a painter with Strokes of Genius came to the condo and not only corrected each and every painting mistake he also undertook to ensure that I would be more than pleased with the final outcome.

I would not hesitate to recommend Daniel and Francois of Strokes of Genius. Their work is incomparable and their professionalism is outstanding.

Thank you.

Company Response

Thank you very much for your kind words, Fiona. As a company that cares deeply about our reputation, there is nothing we hate more than to hear about contractors who are giving us all a bad name, like the one who left you in the lurch. It gives us great pleasure to come in and prove that we're not all the same!
