We were very happy with the end result and have received a number of compliments on the work. Greg, thank you once again for your wonderful workmanship and also for your professionalism!"

"Hi Greg: Once again, I just wanted to say thank you for such a great job you and Kristy did at our home. Truly a professional job because everyone is so polite, hardworking, great cleanup, meticulous priority to details and reasonably priced. Once again, many thanks for all your hard work and conscientious work ethic, without a doubt I would highly recommend A Fresh Coat!"

Barb Laverock

"We recently had A Fresh Coat come to paint our main floor. I contacted Greg for a quote. He was quick to reply. He assessed the job, explained the process, timeframe and provided a reasonable quote. It wasn’t long after that he contacted us saying he could start. He came on a Wednesday and by Saturday morning the job was completed. Greg and Kristy are wonderful to deal with. They are professional and very good at what they do. We are more than happy with the entire process. We would not hesitate to contact them again and would highly recommend. Thank you A Fresh Coat for an amazing job."

Pam and Sandy

"We hired A Fresh Coat to paint over a very dark colour. Greg took the time to test the colour we picked to make sure that we would be pleased with the result. He also took the time to walk through the rooms to be painted and discussed in detail the work to be performed in each room. Greg and his team were professional, neat, and quick. The quality and workmanship can be seen in the end result and it completely transformed the space. We would have them back again. Local Business. Quality Service. Reasonable Rates."

K and G

"We hired Greg from A Fresh Coat to paint our home. We couldn’t be happier with the result. He was patient & knowledgeable in helping us transform our house into something looking new and vibrant. His quote was accurate and beyond reasonable and also did many extras at no extra charge. – Fast, clean and professional. – Will absolutely recommend him to anyone looking to have work done."

Jason & Anna

"A Fresh Coat is a highly professional and reliable performing exceptional results. We would recommend Greg and his team for any job - big or small. Kitchen, ceiling, front hall and baseboards were painted. Thanks Greg."

Dave & Christine

"We were looking to have our kitchen and 2 bedrooms repainted and to have accent walls on the dining room, living room and foyer redone and matched to the adjacent colours. We were very happy with the cost (compared to a competing quote) and with the result. Shawn and Kristina were amazing painters: quiet, careful, competent, knowledgeable and well experienced. When different challenges arose, Greg was reasonable to deal with, kept his word and was not afraid to pick up a scraper and a brush himself to ensure that we were completely satisfied. I would recommend them without reservation."

Mike Burke

"We had a great experience with A Fresh Coat. The price was reasonable, the work was done promptly and they were very pleasant to deal with. We were happy with the results and would highly recommend."

Randy & Laurie

"I had A Fresh Coat paint one of my bedrooms recently. Greg and Kristy did an amazing job. They were very professional and were very patient with all my questions. They were very neat and cleaned up after. Greg responded to my texts right away. I will definitely call A Fresh Coat again and highly recommend them."

Elise & Dan

"When we contacted A Fresh Coat for a quote we had it done very quickly. We were given a time frame for the job and they kept in touch with us until the day they came. They were on time, quick, professional and did a fantastic job. They even allowed us to purchase our own favorite paint. We were very impressed with their professionalism. A follow up to the job was done to ensure we were happy. Thank you Greg and Team ! We would recommend A Fresh Coat anytime!"

Jeff & Tracy

"I am very happy to recommend A Fresh Coat. Greg was honest, reliable and accessible. Marc did a very thorough and careful job of painting our sheds, deck and chimney. I am very pleased with the result."

Diane Briscoe

"I had A Fresh Cost paint the main floor and staircase in my house. Greg and his crew did an amazing job, professional, and kept the work area clean. Answered all my questions and gave suggestions on what paint would look best. Would definitely hire A Fresh Coat again and will be suggesting them to my friends."

Dave & Bernie

"We had Shawn and Kristina here last week to paint our Great room. We were very happy with the result! They were very professional and finished the whole job in 2 days. (We didn’t need much trim painted). And this was even after I had to change the paint color after a patch was painted! They were very helpful painting different areas and letting it dry to see the exact color. They were very neat and cleaned up after. Greg was great to communicate with and answered quickly. I would not hesitate to have painting done by “A Fresh Coat” again!"

Sandra & Richard

"Wow, what an experience with The Fresh Coat team from start to finish. I found the ad in the yellow pages and I'm glad I did. Greg responded quickly with a reasonable estimate. The work was professional and there wasn't an obstacle that they couldn't overcome. The exterior of our house has never looked better. Thank you Greg, Kristina and Shawn for a job well done."

Bruce & Jane

"Greg was on-time, everytime, meticulous and a pleasant man to have at the house. HIs painting is beyond beautiful and we will be having him back again to do the rest of our home. We appreciate the excellent painting and beyond happy with the results."

Jim & Jamie

"I received a very reasonable quote from A Fresh Coat and they were able to start almost immediately. They painted almost my entire downstairs of the townhouse including the popcorn ceiling and trim work. They also patch and smoothed out several areas that had damage. Great crew, work was done quickly and professionally." Highly recommend.


"We needed stucco ceilings painted in the house we were renovating. I called Greg at "A Fresh Coat" for a quote. We hired his company and they did an excellent job. The staff was very pleasant and they got the job done quickly. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who needs painting done. A pleasure to meet and work with."


"I called Greg at A Fresh Coat for an estimate for painting a few rooms and entranceway at our home. Greg came the next day to review what we were looking to have done and provided us with a quote the following day. The quote was very reasonable. Greg and his team (Kristina and Shawn) were very professional and friendly. They did an excellent job painting and our home was spotless when they were done. We are very pleased and would highly recommend A Fresh Coat...thanks, Greg, Kristina and Shawn!""

Susan and Brent

"We recently had Greg and his team paint several areas including ceilings in our home that needed refreshing. We called "A Fresh Coat" and the response was instant. We found Greg and his team to be extremely responsive, professional, neat and the quality of their work, exemplary. The service was prompt and the cost was very reasonable considering the scope of the job. We have had several compliments on the quality of the work completed in our home and we are thrilled with the results. We would not hesitate to recommend Greg and his team from A Fresh Coat!"

Paula and Greg

"I would like to recommend the fantastic service provider called A Fresh Coat. I am in the process of renovating my basement and needed a fresh coat of paint on the walls and ceilings, but felt as though I should leave the work to the experts. I was suggested to try A Fresh Coat, and I am very satisfied with how quick they responded and came over to complete the work. It is affordable, and high quality service. It's saved me hours of labor. The enthusiastic team traveled to Sturgeon Falls and had great workmanship. I would recommend this service to those seeking a high quality paint job. Thanks again to Greg and staff at A Fresh Coat!"


"My wife and I are very pleased with the work that was completed. This is the 3rd time we have had Greg and his team come to paint our home. He is our #1 go to and anytime we need something painted, there is no hesitation on who we will reach out to. You know you will get nothing but the best and the end result shows that!"

Steven & Chantal

"Greg was very pleasant to work with. He responded to all questions, concerns and inquiries promptly and with kindness. Shawn and Christina did a wonderful job painting our living and dining room. They are very trustworthy, professional, clean and efficient. We will definitely use “A Fresh Coat” again."

Barry & Kelly

We are very satisfied with the paint job that was done in our home. Greg was very professional and courteous and we would recommend their company to anyone who is looking for painters."

Ernie & Gail

It was a great choice I made to have A Fresh Coat come in to paint my house! They worked quickly and professionally and were sooo friendly. My one concern was that paint would be on the baseboards but they did an exceptional job and the painters that came in were extremely friendly, went above and beyond to not only work but make sure I was satisfied."


The Fresh Coat team did a fantastic job. Not only was the painting professional and meticulous, but the workers themselves were a delight to have in our home. Greg was prompt with quotes and we felt great value for our money. A super pleased customer!

Kelly & Joe

We had Greg and his team restore and stain our deck. They did a very thorough and professional job. We are very pleased with results and it looks like a new deck. I highly recommend Greg and his team.


Thank you to Greg and his team of experts at A Fresh Coat. My ceilings and walls look great. It was a big job to entertain but they completed it in record time and at a great price even adding a lot of extras at no added cost...what else could you ask for? Five stars to you A Fresh Coat from a very satisfied customer.

Marie lynn

Fresh Coat did an excellent job inside our home. "They were professional, quality work, and friendly painters. Everything looks great! Thank you so much.

Thanks Greg

Kelsey McMullen

Greg was very friendly and professional to work with. We were painting the whole interior of our house except for 2 rooms and he was very patient and knowledgeable with us (I think we topped out at 10 different paint colours/types, sorry guys!). He listened to what we wanted, adding some professional suggestions along the way, and he was very accessible throughout the whole process. There is something huge to be said about being comfortable with someone you’re hiring to work in your home, and Greg nailed that. His team- Corey and Robert- were friendly, efficient, and did a great job of patching and painting. Greg and Corey did a walk through with us the day after the painting was done and did some touch-ups on the spot to make sure that every inch was perfect. The price was fair and we are more than happy with the final result and the much-needed update to our home.


Strongly Recommend
If you are looking for a Painting Company who are: professional, knowledgeable, respectful, and trustworthy then Greg Graff and his team at A FRESH COAT are who I strongly recommend. For the past 5 years we have been working with Greg and his team of professionals to “freshen up” some of our group living sites within North Bay. With each site, there have been obstacles, time restraints and they were very accommodating. The scope of work is clearly explained in the quote and was, in fact, the same amount that was on the invoice. We will continue to contact Greg and his team at A FRESH COAT for any painting we require in the future.”

John Bowman

I'm wanting to write and thank Greg and his team from A FRESH COAT for a wonderful job that you did painting at our in-laws house. We are happy with the timeline that it took you to do such a large job. Everyone was always very professional and the cleanliness was amazing. The workers were always professional and friendly. Will definitely recommend A FRESH COAT.


Who knew there were so many decisions to make about painting a garage door and a front door. Greg was so patient and meticulous with me, walking me through the details making sure I was getting what I wanted, and would like the final product, before they estimated and started the project. The painters were friendly and accommodating with my tenants and said they had the best experience with them, compared to anyone who had come to the house to do work. Since I live out of town, Greg even made a trip back to the house to meet me when I was in town, to have a look at the doors to make sure I was happy with the outcome. I absolutely loved what they did. I was very happy with their workmanship and their customer service which went above and beyond. Greg and his team will definitely hear from me again for future projects


Greg from A Fresh Coat was a pleasure to work with. The service was highly professional, the price was reasonable, and the quality was excellent. I am very happy that I chose to work with A Fresh Coat and wouldn't hesitate to do so again.


I had “A Fresh Coat” stain my large deck which was in dire need of a facelift. It looks amazing and like new again. Greg and his staff were great to deal with. I can’t say enough about Robert who painstakingly hand brushed every spindle and step to make sure they were stained to perfection. I have no hesitation recommending Greg and his team to anyone looking for a reliable, professional painting company.

Joyce Saunders

This is the third time over 4 years we have had Greg and his crew come into our house to paint. The work was done very professionally, efficiently and extremely clean! Both my wife and I were very impressed by the excellent job performed by “A Fresh Coat”. We will continue to call on Greg for all our future painting needs. Thanks again Greg and crew.

Matthew & Colleen

We had Greg and his staff come and stain our deck which was in not so good shape. With all the hot weather we had this summer, we were impressed how considerate and professional they all were working in full sun most days. Our deck looks great and we would certainly hire them again if we had another painting job to get done.

Jack & Lou Stride

I was putting my house on the market but it was in desperate need of a makeover first from top to bottom. Greg came over and did a thorough inspection, took pictures of my wall and ceiling repair needs then emailed me a detailed, itemized quote which did not change at all throughout the project. I had a bad experience before with a contractor so I was a little up-tight but Greg was very patient and professional in answering all my questions. When all was said and done, my house looked brand new! My realtor was very impressed as she had seen what my house looked life before Greg and his crew came in and made it right ;) Thanks again Greg for your great quality work!


We had Greg and his guys come in to paint a few rooms in our newly purchased home. Greg was great to deal with and the pricing was fair as the work was excellent. Marc was very conscientious, skilled and careful to protect our beautiful floors. We would definitely recommend them!

Henry & Lynne

Greg's team did an excellent job painting our interior. We had him in for a quote and were not only happy with his knowledge but also the price. They are very professional and enjoyable. The work they did was top notch and we are very pleased. We would recommend any day. Thank you for all your hard work.

Christa and Denis

My wife and I recently purchased a new home and had the interior painted top to bottom. The work was completed ahead of schedule and we are very pleased with the results. If you want a hassle-free experience from start to finish, Greg is your go to guy. We have used A Fresh Coat before and will not hesitate to do so again in the future.

Mike & Barb

Daryl did an amazing job painting our spare room. He had a terrible plaster job to deal with before he could even start. I can’t believe how good it looks now! I also want to thank you for accommodating my request with only a few days notice. You went above and beyond!
Thank you again.


As a senior, using a painting contractor for the first time, I was amazed at the lack of fuss and muss in having my condo painted. I found the price reasonable, communication excellent, and they know what they are doing. A Fresh Coat is easy to work with and treated me like family. They even took down the drapes that I couldn't reach and hung them back up again. I have been recommending them to any of my friends who ask and am looking forward to when I can afford to change the flooring and have them paint my bedroom too. I love my new fresh coat.

Ruth Trottier

Had an amazing experience with the hard working individuals at A Fresh Coat. We called Greg, he was at our house in 20 minutes and 2 hours later we had a very detailed and fair quote to paint our home. The next day they started and very professionally completed the task much faster then I could have ever imagined. The staff were very friendly, pleasant and went above and beyond. I recommend them to anyone looking for professional paint services.


Recently Greg and his team at A Fresh Coat North Bay were hired to paint the exterior of my home. The scope of work was fairly complex as it involved 2 coats, three colours with many details on stucco. The quality of the workmanship was second to none. Even though this was a large project, I could not find a single missed brush stroke upon final inspection. The work was completed in the amount of time stated and the painters were professional and courteous. After this experience, I would confidently recommend A Fresh Coat North Bay for any and all painting projects.

Jeff Beaudoin

Greg & his crew did an amazing job painting the upstairs of our house. We hired them to go in the day we got possession of our house and they went above & beyond by removing stuff from the walls (TV's & wall mounts). They also removed one wall of wallpaper and he spent many hours ensuring the troublesome wall was perfect! I will have them back to paint the basement! We would recommend "A Fresh Coat" to our friends.


From start to finish of painting the interior of our bungalow, Greg and team did a very professional job. They were very neat and orderly and most of all trustworthy as I was away during the whole project. Would highly recommend this company in a heartbeat! Needed carpentry work done prior to the painting and Daryl did a beautiful job. Such nice brothers to deal with and so personable. We have "Property Brothers" right here in North Bay!!


Having the house painted by Greg and his crew was an excellent experience from start to finish. Greg made sure we selected a quality paint product and did several paint samples on the house to make sure the colour was correct, even going as far as to colour match a colour from a different paint product line. The crew painted the house very efficiently and worked around an event we had planned, they made sure to put drop clothes everywhere they were painting and cleaned up at the end of the day so that you wouldn't know they had been at the house. I am very pleased with how the house looks and would recommend Greg and his crew to anyone looking to paint their house exterior.


Greg and the crew from "A Fresh Coat" recently painted our lakeside home and we must say we were very impressed with the overall experience. Despite the inclement weather, they juggled their schedule to keep our project moving forward on the few dry days we had. Much appreciated and the entire process from prep through final cleanup was handled very professionally. My wife and I are very pleased with the results. We would not hesitate to recommend Greg and the crew at A Fresh Coat to our friends.

Terry and Kirsten Kavanagh

"Thank you does not really say enough. Being under tight time lines with my renovations, Greg was the only one that said 'I will make it happen'. I kept him posted on the progress of the renovations and when the final sanding was done Greg and his crew were here the next morning. I was so impressed with the set up, work and clean up. What they did in 2 days was absolutely incredible. Their work is wonderful, and they took great care of my home, not to mention they were awesome with my dogs. I have never had professional painters before and I can honestly say 'wow, what a treat'.

I would highly recommend Greg and his crew to anyone and would not hesitate to have them back.
Thank you so much Greg and team, we all love our fresh new look!!!"

Melody & Mike Peterson

Greg and his gang did a great job, clean, fast, courteous and priced right!
I will hire them again for sure.

Dave Swaine

We hired Greg and his team at "A Fresh Coat" to stain the exterior of our wood home. The job was completed very professionally with the completion of the job in just 2 days. Greg patiently consulted with us on the colour and quality of the product to be used. We are very happy with the results and with the professionalism of Greg and his crew in cleaning up after the job! We highly recommend Greg and the team for your next painting project!

Mike & Sandra Lavoie

We just had some interior painting done in our house and I would definitely recommend Greg Graff and his paint crew from "A Fresh Coat". The job was professionally completed from the start to the finish. The painters were sociable as well as efficient and considerate of the surrounding area.

Terry & Vonnie Shore

We recently hired A Fresh Coat to paint several rooms in our home. We are very pleased with the outcome. The job was done on time and on budget. We would highly recommend Greg and his team to anyone. Thanks Greg, Greg Jr and Marc

Wes & Sue

Chris and I would like to thank Greg and his team for the great paint job completed in our home. Throughout they were professional, punctual and thorough. Our home is older presenting some challenges. They persevered until the problem was resolved. Greg kept in communication with us throughout and was a pleasure to deal with. We highly recommend him and his company.

Chris and Wendy

“Initially we weren't sure if we should hire painters to do our kitchen, because we figured we could simply do the job ourselves. But after looking at the tight corners, narrow gaps between cupboards and moving appliances, we decided to call A Fresh Coat. This was absolutely the right call; they were able to quickly assess how to get into the tight spaces and did so efficiently and beautifully. They were punctual, trustworthy, professional, and very friendly. I still don't know how they were able to get behind certain cupboards! Thanks for the great work!”

Marianne V.

Recently, I hired Greg and his team from A Fresh Coat to paint a few rooms in my home. They did an amazing job. So much so, I asked them back to paint most of the remaining rooms. The quality of the workmanship was exceptional.

Working with Greg and his staff was a pleasure. His quotes were accurate, fair and provided in a timely manner. They started when they said they would, finished on time and cleaned up after themselves. When there was an issue or I had a concern it was quickly addressed. Greg was always available to talk to or would get back to me as soon as he could. He made a point of saying he wasn’t happy until I was happy and he held true to his word.

I have no hesitation recommending Greg and A Fresh Coat to others. Thank you for the great work.

Dr. Jim Chirico

I needed my interior painting done quickly and was delighted that Greg was willing to work within my time lines. Greg was great to deal with, the quote was very reasonable and there were no surprise charges in the end. I was very pleased with the quality job done by Robert and grateful for the thorough cleanup he performed once the job was complete. Would definitely recommend them to my friends and neighbours. Great job guys!

Pam Tester

I have used the Fresh Coat team of painters on three large projects over the last six years and have consistently been very pleased with their work. The gentlemen who work for this company are pleasant, considerate, thorough, and very capable with the preparation and painting work they do. I highly recommend this company if you are looking for residential or commercial painting specialists.

Dr. Nancy Maynes

We gave you the challenge to clean, rejuvenate and preserve the wavy red cedar siding on our cottage. You did a thorough job including painting all the window frames and the screen door. But the thing we appreciated the most was the excellent communication between us about the job. You responded to our request promptly, gave us an estimate with details and choices and stayed in touch till the job was complete to our satisfaction. Thank you.

Doug & Pat Young

"A Fresh Coat" did an excellent job of staining the cedar siding on the exterior second floor of our house on Parsons Avenue. Their service and recommendations on completion of the job was very professional. The painters did an excellent job of staining, clean-up and restoring the siding to excellent condition. I would recommend this company for any painting project as their service was second to none!

T. Collins

I can’t heap enough praise on Greg and his team from A Fresh Coat for the literally fantastic job they did on the exterior of our cedar covered home. Due to unforeseen circumstances the cedar had been neglected for several years and was looking very drab, bleached, dirty and ‘vulnerable’. I was very discouraged with the outlook for the wood, having been told by another professional painter that the cedar was too water stained, weathered and grimy with pollen and air-borne particles that the only solution was to apply a solid stain and basically cover up the cedar. I was also given a very high estimate for that work to be completed.

My experience with Greg and his team almost echoes everything written here by “Mary Lou and Paul”. I most definitely did not want a solid stain (like paint) on our beautiful cedar siding and, I was not at all pleased with the price I had been quoted previously - so I decided to look around and get a second opinion. I found Greg’s web site, and read through all the excellent testimonials. I gave Greg a call on a Monday morning around 10:30. By 1:00 p.m. he was at my door ready to have a look at the house and give me an estimate.

He determined that the house could be cleaned and that they could apply a transparent stain which would protect the wood and allow the grain and naturalness of the cedar to ‘shine’ through. By 4:00 p.m. that day I received an estimate for the job - an estimate that was less than half the cost of the first estimate I had received. Work began two days later with his team hand-scrubbing the entire cedar surfaces of the house with brushes and cleaner. The results were spectacular. The cedar looked unbelievably almost ‘new’. I was VERY impressed. With the warm weather and sunshine the cedar dried a couple of days later and the first coat of transparent stain was applied, followed a few days after that by a second and final coat. The results are beautiful. I am so pleased and so relieved that the cedar was able to be restored and preserved as much as it has been. Following a bit of rainy inclement weather, Greg and his team were back to apply stain to the porch railings and paint to the two antique porch posts, completing the job in record time and, as others have said, with the utmost courtesy, attention to detail and immaculate clean-up. I cannot recommend Greg and his team highly enough!!

E. Benoit

I would highly recommend Greg and his team, definitely will be contacting him to do more work! Thanks Greg"

- Steven

"We have had Greg in twice to paint our home. Last year he painted our entrance way and hall. This year he painted our entire kitchen. Both times we have been completely satisfied. Greg always has been very professional and his work reflects that. Would not hesitate to recommend him as we would definitely use him again."

- Rick and Linda Blackall

"We hired Greg Graff from "A Fresh Coat" to paint our kitchen including our oak cupboards. The final coat of white paint on the cupboard doors looks like a factory finish. Greg (the son) who did the painting was professional in both his manner & the quality of his work and was a pleasure to have in the house. I would certainly hire this company for any further work & have no hesitation in recommending them to others."

- Margaret McGinn

Thanks again,
- Karen & Myron

“Greg and his team did an excellent job repainting the exterior wooden siding on my house at a very reasonable price. Prior to initiating any work, he painted a few test boards and let me assess if I wanted to continue through. Upon completing the job, the house looked amazing with its new fresh paintjob!”

- Rob

“I had my whole house painted by Greg Graff and his team at “A Fresh Coat”. I was extremely pleased with the work that was done. It looks amazing. I have had many compliments from people who have seen their work. I highly recommend them.”

- Susan

“Greg and his crew just painted our entire newly purchased house. They were professional, finished the job on time, and even came in under the quoted price. Not only does our house look amazing, they were great people to work with. Especially in the manner in which they handled all the deliveries that we had being made to the house while they were painting! We would, and already have, recommended them to anyone that mentions painting! “

- Avis and Sherri

“We contacted Mr. Graff’s company, A FRESH COAT, to discuss the exterior painting of our home’s walls. It was very pleasing for us to have Mr. Graff respond to our phone call in a very timely manner and further, to have him come for an estimate within a few days of our phone call. His courteous and pleasant manner during our initial visit helped us make the decision to hire A FRESH COAT to do our painting. More than once, Mr. Graff communicated with us as to when the painting would begin. He was very aware of the weather; we were happy that he was choosing the best painting and drying weather for our project. We were told exactly the time and day his company would arrive and they were good to their word. We found their workmanship to be extremely tidy and efficient. There appeared to be a strong work ethic so that our project was completed with no delay and no mess. Mr. Graff and his son have a friendly and positive attitude about their work which made it pleasant to have them in our yard. The completed project was beautiful; it made us smile! The cost to us was very reasonable and the quality of the work was excellent. We feel very comfortable recommending this company, A FRESH COAT, to neighbours or friends for painting projects.”

- Mary Lou and Paul

“Just had the inside of our home painted by Greg and his son. What a beautiful job they did. We felt very comfortable having them in our home. After they were done they left the place very neat and tidy. Other than a new color on the walls etc. you would not have known anyone was here. Kudos for putting up with the half blind old lady hahaha. We would recommend them to anyone who wants their house painted. Thanks again for the great job.“

- Nancy and Wayne

“Regarding the services your company carried out for us this past winter, we are delighted to offer our recommendation in the future for any jobs you may wish to tender. Your company always provided us with great service, quality and reliability for which we are very grateful to you. I have no hesitation to recommend you even for the most specialized jobs because of your professionalism.”

-The Kennedys

“We moved in our new house in November 2014. Things have been very difficult from the get go, from moving during a snow storm, to a flood, to a never ending kitchen renovation.

But the one thing that went absolutely perfectly and was totally painless is the painting.

To start, Greg’s quote was almost half of the one somebody else had given us. He also gave us excellent advice when we were trying to keep the cost down.Greg and his crew did the work incredibly fast. I seriously don’t know how they can work so fast.

They were so clean and tidy, so precise and so meticulous.

Greg had to be flexible enough to work around the schedule of the other people that were working in our house.

He cheered me up when I was totally discouraged because of the bad luck we were having.

He was patient when I had to cancel and postpone his work.

At the end, I had no kitchen counter, no sink, no light, my brand new floors were scratched and I had drywall dust everywhere for weeks…

But the walls in the rest of the house looked absolutely fantastic and the final price was as we were quoted.

There. If you need somebody skilled, honest, kind and reliable for your painting jobs…. Greg is your guy!

Too bad he doesn’t do moves, kitchen reno, plumbing and electricity.”

“Thanks to Greg and his team for a job well done. We are pleased to recommend “A Fresh Coat” to do a very professional job. Very pleasant people to work in our home”

Thank you so very much! I am so pleased with your work, beautiful job!

“I can't say enough good things about my experience with Greg and his crew. I had a large interior job including the removal of old wallpaper in a split entry. It was tough, involved and not very pleasant but the guys completed the work professionally, in the promised time frame and the estimate was spot on. I can't get over the transformation! Sometimes when we envision something the end result doesn't match what we see in our head. Not so in this case. Their work exceeded my expectations and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone who wants professional work with competitive pricing.“

“Recently Greg was called on short notice to do some interior painting for us. In the week that he was around he was personable, very agreeable to any suggestions we had and very hard working. Greg is his own hardest critic constantly examining his work to make sure it lives up to his rigorous standards. Greg is very professional, cleaning up after himself each evening so as not to inconvenience us in any way. In short, it was a pleasure to have him in our home and we would recommend him to anyone based on his work ethic and excellent end product.”

"We recently had an income property repainted by 'A Fresh Coat' and were more than pleased with the result. The job had its obstacles (difficult-to-access areas, .php nests, and mismatched paint we had purchased ourselves), but was completed professionally and with a smile.

Greg was accommodating, agreeing to do some work not in the original quote, and kept us informed of the progress and his schedule. The job-site was left tidy at the end of each day, and final clean-up was excellent.

In short, we would highly recommend Greg and 'A Fresh Coat' to friends for a great job, friendly service and a very reasonable price.

Thanks again Greg"

"If you are considering Greg Graff for hire, please read the following. After 4 major renovations over the last few years, we have hired several contractors. For our current project, we chose Greg to paint the exterior of our house (Circa 1990, cedar shingles, 7000 square foot house + garage). Of all the contractors we've had dealings with, Greg is the first and only contractor that came through as agreed upon. The final invoice matched the quote and he finished the job on schedule. He works with his son and they do an excellent job; they are meticulous, tidy, organized and they work with a smile. What a pleasure it was working with them on this project...thank you Greg and Greg!!"

- Melanie Viau

You will be highly recommended by me and I will be glad to be a reference for any of your potential future customers."

“We found Mr. Graff's work to be exceptionally thorough and skilled. He provided timely responses to requests for quotes, worked diligently to complete the work, cleaned up the space to be as unobtrusive as possible, and was pleasant to have around for a large exterior paint job. We highly recommend Greg. We were very appreciative of his knowledge and skill and his willingness to be responsive to our needs and timelines.“

- John and Nancy

“Greg did a wonderful job painting the exterior of our house. It is amazing how many people in our neighbourhood have come up to let us know how much the appearance of our house has been improved since it has been painted. Not only did Greg do a great job painting, but the place was always kept very clean and well organized. Greg also offered great advice when it came to the type and colour/shade of paint to use. I would highly recommend Greg to anyone!“
