Ceiling Painted

Walter and his team did an excellent job painting my ceilings. They protected all of my belongs by covering everything. They were efficient and very skilled at what they do. They cleaned up afterwards and put everything back in its place. I would highly recommend Decorating With a Difference for any painting job. They also do faux finishing. Walter painted a sky and clouds on a friend's ceiling and it was lovely. That's why I picked them to come and do mine.

Amazing work and friendly service

We are so pleased with our newly painted ceiling.
Walter was very friendly and professional, and the project did not take long at all. He even took the time to go above and beyond what we asked for.
We would highly recommend his services! Look no further :)

Exterior painting of house including repairs

I am extremely pleased and very happy with the work that Walter and Monique did on my house. It was neglected for too long and now it looks so much better. Walter went above and beyond my expectations. I thank both of them from the bottom of my heart!

Interior house painting

I was working in a tight time frame to get my house painted and ready to sell. Max was able to make it work and got the job done in 2 days! The paint job was immaculate and the team was very friendly and accommodating. I would definitely hire them again.

Painting main floor & stairwell

Working with Decorating With a Difference was fantastic! We got great advice from Walter & Max & Kate and are extremely pleased with the painting of our main floor and stairwell. They are also the nicest crew to deal with and were so meticulous with the entire job and pricing was very fair. I would not hesitate to contact them in future for more projects. Thanks to Walter, Max, Kate, Oliver & Dakota for all your help in doing an incredible job in our home!
