Brandon and Joel were incredibly efficient and professional the whole way through. They had to work around tons of furniture , boxes and other items and they never once came back with any problems and overcame every challenge without issue. They painted painted our entire unit beautifully but we were most impressed with the work they did on our damaged cupboard. They matched the colour identically to the other cupboards and they looked incredible. They were awesome to work with, I look forward to working with them again and I would highly recommend!!!

Encore was fantastic to work with, from initial quotation right through to job completion. I would definitely recommend them to anybody contemplating a large or small job, I certainly will go back. We had planned to re-paint the entire home, and remove the stucco and refinish the ceilings on the second floor. Upon the initial consultation with Lauren, she made great suggestions on colours and let us know about their cabinetry repainting and fireplace restaining which is not something we considered previously, but after seeing the results we are thrilled with the results. She was on time, friendly and available whenever we needed to speak with her after the initial sales consult. Throughout the whole process she was flexible on helping us adjust plans, make additions and removals from the scope of the job and transparent in pricing. Once the job commenced, we met our lead painter Ben and his crew who were on site prepping. They were all very respectful of the workplace which is our home. The finished product is so much smoother then we ever could have done. He paints just as well as he sings! The results speak for themselves below. During the job, Leo on production was great to work with. He was always punctual when we had a meeting on site scheduled. In addition, once the majority of the work was completed and we were doing walk throughs, he gave us the impression that no detail was too small to be corrected. He usually found other defects that we ourselves never would have noticed. Closer to completion, he was very helpful in helping us sort out the garbage issue by rolling up his own sleeves to lend a hand. He was always available to help, often reaching out to us on weekends. There were many items that we were not sure about, and he was patient and helpful in providing us popular options and suggestions. Throughout the job, it was apparent he cared about the final product. We also had a pony wall in the living space that divided two rooms that we requested to have demolished and patched. Rohan their handyman did a fantastic job. After the demo and patching, its impossible to tell it ever happened. Even the baseboards as well as the crowns were perfect. Long story short, Encore has amazing staff who are super helpful and can handle many other side jobs at the same time as painting. As their name suggests, we will not hesitate to call them back for an encore. Thank you!
Great service especially for condos!! Kevin & Mike were super helpful and answered any questions I had. Process was done smoothly and quickly! My condo looks great!

The drying time of paint depends on various factors such as humidity, temperature, and the type of paint used. Generally, latex paint dries within a few hours, while oil-based paint may take up to 24 hours to dry completely. It’s essential to follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for drying times.

No, painting over mold is not a recommended solution by any painting contractors. Before painting, it’s crucial to address and remove any mold.

Clean the affected area with a mold-killing solution, and make sure the area is ventilated so the mold doesn’t return.

If you’re unsure of how to proceed, search professional “painting company near me” and discuss the details with a painting contractor.

Yes, priming before painting is often necessary and highly recommended by most painting contractors.

Why Priming is Important:

  1. Surface Preparation: Priming helps create a smooth and even surface, which is essential for the top coat of paint to adhere properly. It fills in any gaps and seals the surface.

  2. Adhesion: Primers are formulated to adhere to surfaces better than paint alone. This strong bond between the primer and the surface provides a stable base for the paint, and can reduce peeling and chipping.

  3. Stain Blocking: If the surface has stains, smoke damage, or other discolourations, a primer can block these from bleeding through the top coat of paint. This is particularly important for painting over wood, drywall, or previously painted surfaces with stains.

  4. Moisture Resistance: Priming can help protect surfaces from moisture, which is crucial in kitchens, bathrooms, or exterior walls. It prevents moisture from seeping into the walls, which causes paint to blister and peel.

  5. Colour Coverage: Using a primer can enhance the paint’s true colour.

When You Should Prime:

  • Bare or New Surfaces: New drywall, wood, or any other bare surfaces should always be primed before painting.
  • Surfaces: Spongy surfaces like bare wood or concrete need a primer to ensure even paint absorption.
  • Glossy Surfaces: Surfaces with a glossy finish should be primed to help the paint adhere better.
  • Dramatic Colour Changes: When changing from a dark colour to a light one (or vice versa).

Washing your walls before painting is an essential painting step that should not be overlooked. It helps create a clean, smooth surface for paint. Here’s why washing your walls before painting is important and how you should do it:

  1. Remove Dirt and Grime: Over time, walls accumulate dust, dirt, fingerprints, and other contaminants. These substances can prevent paint from sticking properly to the surface.

  2. Eliminate Grease and Oils: In areas like kitchens or bathrooms, walls can have a buildup of grease, oils, and soap scum. These residues can combat the paint adhesion and affect the finish.

  3. Prevent Mold and Mildew: Washing walls before painting helps to identify and remove any mold or mildew. Painting over mold can cause it to spread and damage both the paint and the underlying surface.

  4. Improve Paint Adhesion: Clean walls provide a better surface for the primer and paint to adhere to.

  5. Enhance Paint Appearance: Painting over a clean surface ensures that the true colour and texture of the paint are achieved.

How to Wash Your Walls

  1. Prepare Your Materials: You’ll need a mild detergent, water, a bucket, a sponge or cloth, and possibly a degreaser for particularly greasy areas. For mold or mildew, use a mixture of water and a little bit of bleach.

  2. Dust the Walls: Before washing, dust the walls with a dry cloth or a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment to remove loose dirt and cobwebs.

  3. Mix the Cleaning Solution: In a bucket, mix warm water with a small amount of mild detergent. If the walls are greasy or particularly dirty, you might need a stronger solution or a degreaser.

  4. Wash the Walls: Dip a sponge or cloth into the cleaning solution, wring it out, and gently wash the walls from top to bottom. Work in sections.

  5. Rinse the Walls: After washing, rinse the walls with clean water to remove any soap residue. Use a separate sponge or cloth and change the water frequently to make sure all detergent is removed.

  6. Let the Walls Dry: Allow the walls to dry completely before applying primer or paint. This might take several hours.

Oil-based paint and water-based paint have distinct characteristics. Oil-based paint is known for its durability, smoother finish, and longer drying time.

Water-based paint dries faster, has less odour, and is easier to clean up. The choice between them depends on the specific needs of the project.
