I had Payson’s come out to do a quote on a few bedroom. Their pricing was right in the middle of three I received.  From start to finish they were reliable and kept in contact. They let me know exactly what to expect and were right on schedule. The quality of work was excellent. If your looking for Calgary painters I would highly recommend them.

We were in search of a painter and were happy to find one in the community and wanted to support a local business.Mike, Moya and team were tasked with painting our newly constructed staircase railing – a job too detailed for me to do without messing up! It was a big job as all the spindles are black iron with the rest all paint-grade wood that we wanted white. We were under the impression we had to brush or roll it, but to our surprise Payson’s Painting was able to spray it – after a ton of taping and masking that is!We’re super happy with the result and they made sure that we were happy – doing touch ups and resprays where the finish didn’t take the first time.The clean up was stellar too! When it was all done it felt like a new home! So many compliments on it.We’re going to have them spray our new doors too ;)Would recommend Payson’s Painting!

The Paysons team did a fantastic job repainting our recently purchased house. It was a challenging job and they delivered with top quality work. It was my mother who recommended them to us from her experience on a much smaller job and I am recommending them to anyone who wants top quality work done on their home.

The Payson team were fantastic to work with. With three trades working on the renovations Payson was by far the most flexible and accommodating of other trades while completing the work on time and on budget. Painting out tired wooden stair rails and kitchen cupboards exceeded our expectations. Thanks Mike and all the team. Well done.

If you are looking for good Calgary painters I highly recommend parson’s painting. They are professional organize and the best part of working with parson’s painting is that they clean up after themselves my house was spotless after the painting was done. I will definitely be using them for future painting projects .

Preparing for the work:

At Paysons Painting, we understand that spraying ceilings can sometimes result in occasional splatters. That’s why our Calgary ceiling painters take great care to prepare the area properly before starting the work. We cover all furniture, floors, and walls with plastic sheeting or drop cloths to prevent any paint from getting on them.

Our Calgary ceiling painting experts use stable stepladders that are tall enough to allow them to work from the second-highest step. We also wrap any light fixtures on the ceiling with paper or plastic for protection.

Spraying tips:

If you’re planning to paint the entire room, we recommend using a sprayer, especially if your ceiling has a heavily textured surface. Spraying is more efficient than other techniques and can eliminate the need for cutting in, which is a time-consuming and tedious process in interior painting. If you’re painting the walls after the ceiling, we will spray directly onto the walls. After the ceiling paint has dried, we can cut in the walls and make a straight line with the wall color. If we’re not painting the walls after, we will tape them tightly with plastic to protect them from overspray.

Painting tips:

Before painting, we typically vacuum any dust or cobwebs that have accumulated on the ceiling. Warm air usually collects on the ceiling and may deposit smoke, grease, and moisture, particularly if the ceiling is located in the kitchen. Our ceiling painters in Calgary can also add a single coat of oil-based, stain-blocking primer on the ceiling to prevent stains from permeating through the top coat. As a company policy, we only use special paint that’s been formulated for ceilings to achieve perfect results. This paint stays wet much longer than wall paint and helps prevent streaks and splatters.


Types of ceilings we paint-

As a company, we have the expertise to paint both flat and textured ceiling surfaces. Some of which include:

a)    Textured ceiling painting

Also known as splatter coat finish, it’s popular for hiding imperfections and adding depth to your ceiling.

b)    Popcorn/stipple ceiling painting

Popcorn ceiling is also referred to as cottage-cheese ceiling, it’s a paint-on or spray-on ceiling treatment that’s commonly used in the bedroom and home hallway ceilings. Its bright white appearance has the ability to make a room look much bigger and cleaner, apart from hiding imperfections.

c)    Knockdown ceiling painting

When making knockdown ceilings, the mixture is usually allowed to dry for some amount of time then skimmed using a knockdown knife which is a large, plastic cutter. Though knockdown ceilings may take quite a while to produce, the results are definitely worth the effort. The raised, flat sections cast nice shadows which add extra depth to the ceiling.

How we do the painting for flat rolled ceilings:

I. The first step our ceiling painters undertake is to work continuously around the room’s perimeter, cutting in a 3-inch border using a paintbrush.

II. Next, we load a roller with paint and place it in one corner of the ceiling. We then spread the paint in a single direction towards the other side of the room in equivalent lines. Before using the roller, we fill its deep portion tray with paint and roll it over the coating until the nap is sufficiently covered. The goal is not to submerge the entire roller but rather glide it over the paint while steadily running it back-and-forth in the shallow section of the holding container until the nap is fully covered, and paint splatter is minimal.

III. We paint your ceiling using the paint-filled roller to make a zigzag pattern measuring 3 to 4 square inches, then go over the same section using straight, measured strokes to level out the paint. Our experts always avoid leaving paint lines around the frame of the roller.

Since we can only achieve the best results while the coating is still wet, our painters are usually keen to tackle smaller sections first and also feather out the ceiling edges to reduce distinct, noticeable lines between sections.

Depending on the type of paint and coverage needed, we may need to repeat the painting process to make it richer, but only after the initial coat has dried thoroughly. The second coat will be applied in a single perpendicular direction to the first, to achieve a uniform look. We work fast and continuously until the whole ceiling surface is coated.

How we do the spraying:

If we are spraying the ceilings, the process is a bit different. The best way to achieve an even finish is a technique called cross-hatching. This means we will spray two coats right after one another before allowing them to dry. We will spray the entire ceiling in one direction and immediately spray the second coat in the opposite direction. This will ensure a nice, even finish without any spray lines.
