Garage exterior

The stripping was done very well and this encouraged me from the get go, especially given the better price than some other places who quoted the project. That said, the paint job left many areas of concern due to ill-coverage and neglect of some of the harder to reach areas like under eaves etc. (this is the reason why I hired out - otherwise I would have done it myself!). Paint isn't the world's best quality either so I'm glad I didn't hire them for my house.

House Trim, Fence and Deck

Ali HAQKAR from College Pro and his painters did a horrible job on my house trim and crown moldings, they splashed paint all over the siding and garage doors. Then tried to clean it off with "Goof Off" and ruined the appearance on the garage doors, front and side of the house. Secondly,they did not pressure wash anything (this was in the contract). The deck was totally messed up and I had to replace cedar boards because they tried to stain it right after it rained and the wood was wet. The fence was done with the wrong paint. I ran them off the site and the manager finally provided a partial discount. Save yourself the headache and the money. Pay a real professional, not these guys who messy unprofessional job, but still want the money.

Repaint wood deck

did a pretty good job (stripping, repainting), but finding that the paint is peeling off after less than a year in parts. Raised deck - they did top and under, but lots of smaller, hard to reach spots were either missed or not fully covered. Good point - they were very good about keeping gates closed due to dogs and keeping materials away from the dogs. Bad point - there was a fair bit of pressure to include a hefty tip for each worker on top of cost. For the cost, we would not use them again for this kind of project.

Paint job

Truly exceptional service. Were tidy in their work had a great end result and kept costs low. My house had needed some new paint for a few years and they truly brought it back to life.

Outside Painting

My garage needed painting and I thought I would give College Pro a try since I didn't have time to do it myself. Should have just done it myself. The work was sloppy, the workers were rude as was the manager when I called to complain about the quality of work. They were well priced, BUT not worth it since I ended up having to repaint my garage myself.

Main floor repaint

Estimate was delivered in good time but, had to wait 4 weeks for job to commence. This was OK as we were not in a big hurry and gave us time to get the rooms/walls ready. Was quite happy with their work and the job turned out good in the end. Had to get them back once to touch up one of the rooms walls and it was done satisfactory.

Interior Paint for 800 sq ft

We called college pro because we thought they would be cheaper than other companies; we didn't expect the job to be done wonderfully but just needed something until we had more cash to put towards it. They came and did an estimate for free with no pressure. The kids were young but lively and did a great job! There was only a few little spots on the roof and baseboards and they were fast workers as well. Way better than expected for such a great rate!

Painting

Nightmare!!!! Stay away from them.
I first contacted College Pro Painters to get an estimate on how much it would cost to paint my house. Originally, everything was OK. I was told the cost would be the same if I provided the paint or not, so I took my paint back to the store.
Then, e-mails weren't answered for days, and when an appointment was booked, he didn't show. He didn't even call to say he wasn't coming. My day was wasted in waiting. He eventually called all apologetic, and said he had gone away for the weekend with his family. After this experience, I decided to have him paint the storage room only and see how that was handled before I hired him to paint the rest of the house. He then told me that he would have to charge me to resubmit the quote and since I wasn't providing the paint, it would cost more.
That was it, I had had enough. I hired a guy from Kijiji and he did a great job of painting the whole house for about what College Pro Painters originally quoted me.
Also, I had contacted College Pro for a window cleaning quote and the girl was really snippy.
I will never again deal with College Pro Painters and I would never recommend them to anyone else.

Exterior Painting

NOTE that this is for the franchise in Cochrane, not Calgary. The franchise owner, Andrea, has moved up in the College Pro organisation and may not own this franchise any longer?

Andrea followed up on a request that made at a trade-show. She came out, took mesurements and provided an estimate. She gave us an approximate date, based on the commitments she already had, and then notified us of an earlier opening due to weather, which we were able to take advantage of. Completed early and to estimate.
