Interior residential painting.

Brian recently painted most areas of our home and we were very satisfied with the results. He did an excellent job and we highly recommend him for your painting needs. We also plan to have him back soon to paint the remaining rooms. Thanks Brian, Mary and Murray

Living room, dining room and kitchen painting

From start to finish, Brian conducted himself very professionally. He responded to our initial enquiry immediately and after we accepted his quote, he planned the work days and kept us fully informed throughout. Brian's own painting work is meticulous and he ensures his team works to that standard. We are delighted with the outcome of a complete painting job including ceilings, walls and trim in the main living, dining and kitchen area of our home. We were particularly impressed with Brian's willingness to make suggestions to improve the area, for example changing lights including difficult to change high ceiling pot lights which he did at no extra cost. His enthusiasm to help the homeowner and his pride in his work are evident. Based upon our experience we highly recommend Millar Painting. Please note we are not related to Brian even though we have the same last name.

Interior painting

I am very happy with the beautifully painted walls in my home. Brian provided an excellent service at a reasonable rate, and he finished ahead of schedule. He patched and smoothed the walls thoroughly beforehand, and his attention to detail was evident at every step of the way. He also transformed a firplace mantle from dark oak to a stunning white. It was a pleasure to work with Brian and his assistant.

Difficult hallway, dining room, and library

Brian and his crew did a great job with our house. We have never hired professional painters before, but the ceilings in our new house were simply too high and difficult for us to tackle on our own. Brian showed up on time, was very pleasant to work with, and finished the job on time. He paints everything free hand and it ends up looking perfect

Painting ad flooring

I needed to get my home in Barrie fixed up and sold. My previous renters left it in shambles and it needed quit a bit of repairs. Brian is very knowledgable with overall general house repairs, mainly I hired him to paint, install laminent floors and a couple other things toilets lighting. This guy was great. So helpful at at reasonable price. He was not pushy, very friendly, fast, and easy to work with. I'd recommend him to anyone and definitely use his services again in the area.
Thanks Brian you took a lot of stress off my plate.

The BEST - highly recommended!!

This was the first time we've ever used professional painters because we normally do the work ourselves, but my husband wasn't well, so we decided to hire professionals to do the painting. The truth is, I was apprehensive about it, because you never know what kind of job will be done until the workers are in your home, and promises that are made are sometimes broken, or not fulfilled, but my fears were alleviated even before the painting started!!

First, Brian offered to meet me at the local hardware store to help me choose the proper primer, as well as helped us decide on a color for the family room, then meeting again to pick up the paint and letting us take advantage of his company discount.

On the 1st day of painting, he and his helper arrived on time as promised. They began spreading drop sheets on the carpet for protection (even though I told him the carpet was going to be replaced a couple of weeks later, he still took the extra time and care to do the job). The deal was to put one coat of primer on all closet doors, the walls and the ceiling, however, the doors were quite yellow and Brian decided to prime them again (without being asked and without charging extra for this!).

The ceiling is stucco and it's often difficult to get a straight line around the room because stucco sometimes drops down to the top of a wall...but these guys knew what they were doing, no question about it! Straight as an arrow around the perimeter of our family room and they also took extra-special care of the new stone wall we had installed, so as not to get paint on it - it was a tedious job, but done to perfection! Not only that, we had a new built-in bookcase that we had primed ourselves, which I was going to paint afterwards myself. Brian offered to paint it, saying that "they had the paint anyway, it wouldn't take long and that would be another job off my 'to do' list!" Whaaaaaat?? Hard to believe I know, but it's 100% true! They also touched up the stair banister leading down into the family room and both sides of the stair risers. I could not have asked more of them, they were so accommodating!

Brian even put on all the new handles for the closets and bathroom doors, as well, he took the time to install our new lock for the side door, leading to the garage - all done without charge! In this day and age, that in itself is truly unbelievable!!

I loved the work ethic of Brian and that of his assistant and we have decided that any future painting will be done by Millar Sales & Services - no way could we have done a better job ourselves (and I never thought I'd be saying that!!)!

Here are a list of pro's:
- estimated 3 days of work and was finished in 3 days
- punctual, arrived each morning at promised time
- great care taken to set up and clean up
- friendly and very accommodating
- added extras free of charge, where others would not have
- willingness to work with added requests
- great workmanship and expertise, top notch painting skills
- we could NOT have done a better job!

If you're on the fence about hiring someone to paint your home, rest assured that you are in great hands with Brian!

I'd also like to personally thank you Brian for all your hard work and commitment to do the job right, you exceeded our expectations and everyone who's seen the family room is astounded at the job! Sorry for getting this up a bit later than I anticipated, but the rest of the work we had to do in the family room wasn't completed until the end of November and then it was time to get ready for Christmas. Wishing you a Happy New Year and much continued success in 2016!!

painting and general repairs

We originally hired Brian to paint our house. We quickly realized that, in addition to painting, Brian can fix anything. He was amazing!!! He was extremely respectful and trustworthy. We hired him again 6 months later. I have absolutely no qualms about recommending Brian. He was the best contractor that we have had!

painting

Brian was recommended by my closest friend. He is a true professional and his work is excellent! Our family is truly pleased with our bathroom that he has brought back from a hideous job that we attempted ourselves! I will continue to call on Brian for all of our home projects from now on!

painting, hardwood floors

Brian came highly recommended by a friend. He installed hardwood flooring on the main floor and painted all the rooms in my townhouse. Brian is an absolute perfectionist and worked tirelessly to make sure that the job was done the way I wanted. I would not hesitate to recommend him. I was very comfortable with him and fully trusted him in my home.
