It shouldn't be so hard to find a reliable painter in Comox Valley

When you bring someone into your home, you’re establishing a bond of trust. You want to know they’re going to have the same level of care for your space as for their own. You want to feel confidence in their ability to do the job right, to not make a huge mess, and to do it when they say they’re going to. Is that too much to ask?

You need a painter who communicates clearly

With any home improvement project, there are unexpected situations. When issues or problems arise, it’s important to have conversations so you understand what needs to happen and why. You’re paying good money for a service and you deserve to get it with professionalism, strong communication and follow-through.

“Super super pleased with A Step Beyond Painting! I emailed for a hallway repaint and got a reply basically right away. A week later the hallway is repainted, looks absolutely perfect, and I’m just amazed how quick and easy the whole process was. Super easy communication and just an all around painless experience. If you need a job done, this is the way to go!”

“Nothing but 5-star praise for Patty and his amazing crew! Everything was top notch. Patty is an exceptionally good communicator and the crew that worked on our house was punctual, hand-working and super friendly… Patty even had one of his crew come back to do a few very minor touch ups that he found when doing a final walk-around…that’s how detailed he is and how much he cares about the quality of work that A Step Beyond provides. Outstanding!”
