Home Painting?

on Aug 09, 2011 @ 02:19 pm

Hi Ladies,

Can you recommend a painter who'll do a good job of painting an apartment at a reasonable price?  I'm in T.O. as you know ... I'm scared to look in kijiji or craigslist, can I trust them? Really?  I'd rather consider someone one of you recommend.

Have you looked into companies with student painters? I think they are usually pretty affordable, but I am not sure about the quality. I would ask around your building too- maybe your neighbours have people they have used before?

Good luck with your hunt though!


Try a trade school on Aug 12, 2011 @ 09:32 am

There must
be some trade schools in TO some place; I know there's lots of other school's
up your way. Schools are a great way to get things done cheap. Even dental work
can be done at over half the price, sometime even more off than a Dentist will
charge you for the same thing. Even hair dressing schools will do your hair for
cheaper. They all have to learn on real people, so they might let the student
do real homes to. It's worth a call if you don't have a ton of money to spend
and don't want to do it yourself.

Maybe you could go into a paint store like Benjamin Moore and ask them who are reputable painters? I am sure people in paint shops know many painters!

Good luck.
