We had Mike and his helper do some painting in our home. They spray painted my kitchen cabinets and also did some exterior painting of the trim. The project was on budget and the work was exceptional. I would highly reccomend Paysons Painting for any interior or exterior painting work.

Mike is everything you want in a contractor that comes to your home. Respectful, responsive, professional, communicative, prepared, committed and overall excellent.We can’t say enough good things about this individual and his company, as Mike also went above and beyond on so many things that he understood were important to us. Our home looks fresh and immaculate once again, as the team’s precise workmanship is evident throughout every area we had painted, including our stippled ceilings.They treated our home as if it was their own and we can’t ask for more than that. We look forward to have them return and complete any of our additional painting needs.

Mike is a legend. I needed a paint job quick and he went above and beyond to get it done, on budget and he helped improve the place so much more than I thought possible. He helped pick colours, worked throughout his weekend and was such a great communicator it made the job so easy. I’ll be using Mike every time I need work done. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Jill A.
Just finished hiring Payson’s Painting for a small job in our home after hiring them to paint the interior of our home a few years ago. We were very impressed with the quality of initial painting so happy to use them again. Mike was professional, timely, and communicated well. I will use Payson’s again and highly recommend.
Response from the owner: Thank you Jill for taking the time to write us a review. It was nice to see you again and a pleasure you work with you. All the best. Mike

I want to take this opportunity to highly recommend Paysons Painting. My daughter just bought a condo that needed freshening up. My intention was to do it myself but once I saw what I was up against, I knew it was beyond my capabilities. I reached out to Mike and he responded right away. That night he gave us our quote and basically started the next day. We ended up having him paint the walls, trim and doors, kitchen and bathroom cabinets and doors, electric baseboard heater and both the smooth and stippled ceiling. He basically painted everything. The place looks as if it’s brand new. I can’t get over how nice it looks. He did a great job and it was a pleasure working with him.
Response from the owner: Thank you for the review Kelly. I enjoyed working with you. You were easy to work with as well. Im really happy how the painting turned out. All the best! Mike

Sergio Orlando Donoso H.
I hired them to finish up my basement just this past January, and while I had been comparing price I decided to opt for Paysons. I was a little skeptical at first considering the general concept “you get what you pay for”. But I am greatful to be able to say that the quality of their work had exceeded my expectations. They went above and beyond and really gave me more than what I payed for in time and effort. Have been recommending this painting contractor to friends and family ever since.
Response from the owner: Thanks Sergio so much for taking the time to leave a review! Im glad it turned out well and you are happy with everything. Thanks again.
Brookelynn B.
I hired this company to paint my ceilings after receiving my requested quote considering how reasonable the price was. They finished the whole house in a day and a half which is unheard of. I came back after they finished up and to my surprise they left the site absolutely spotless. It’s anyone who is currently looking to hire a painting contractor I would sincerely advise you to stop your search. You have found the right company and the right people, look no further.
Response from the owner: Thanks so much for the review! Im glad everything turned out well. The ceilings are now looking fresh and white. All the best Brookelynn. Paysons Painting.

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.
