Who are the best Winnipeg painters

Who are the best Winnipeg painters?

Have you ever wondered who the best painters in Winnipeg are? Well, if you have, you’re not alone.

In this article, we will try to determine who are the best Winnipeg painters, but note that this article is based on subjectivity and is not a scientific-based article.

Since it is literally impossible to answer this question, the best we can do is take an educated guess based on a few factors.

The factors we used for this article include search results for “Winnipeg painters”, Yelp reviews, Three Best Rated, and Google Reviews. Of course, not every painter in Winnipeg has all of these properties, so again, this is subjective.

For fairness and transparency, we’ll leave Vertigo Painters out of this article, as we’ve been in the industry a long time and know that we’ve earned our respected reputation.

Please note that not all Winnipeg painting companies will be included in this article.

All of the results below are presented in the order as they were presented to us.

Yelp Reviews

We’ll start with Yelp. After typing in “Painters”, and then filtering for the results to be highest rated, here is what we found:

Integrity Painting & Decorating

While they didn’t have the highest rated reviews, they had three in total, which was two more than the next, which is probably why Yelp put them first.

3.5 stars out of 5

Urban Topcoat, Paint & Renovations

1 star out of 5

The rest of the Yelp reviews did not have any ratings.

Google Search Results

Now on to Google search results. For brevity, we will only include the first page results. Now, some people might think why are we including search results. The reasoning behind this is that if a company shows on the first page of Google, they have either had enough success to pay someone to get them tot he first page, or they simply paid someone to get them there. Either way, it could be a factor, so we’re including it.

Wow 1 Day Painting

Wow 1 Day Painting is an international franchise business with locations all over North America.

Pinnacle Painting & Decorating

Pinnacle is led by Paul Woloschuk who was a Winnipeg painter over 11 years ago (but we don’t have a date to reference, so that could be any time).

StudentWorks Painting

In business since 1991, StudentWorks provides painting services across Western Canada.

Colour Scheme Professional Painters

Started in the 1992 by Dan Precourt, Colour Scheme prides itself on not being a franchise.

Integrity Painting

Winnipeg’s #1 Painters

Started in 2012, Winnipeg’s #1 Painters specializes in wood stain.

InsideOut Painting

Brothers Nigel and Geoff started in 2007 by dividing the responsibilities of estimating and painting between the two.

Three Best Rated

Next up, we have the website Three Best Rated. The website says it has a rigorous 50-point inspection, but it’s unclear if a business has to apply for it or if they search out businesses and perform the inspection.

Perry Wellington Painting & Decorating

Established in 2009.

Stephen’s Edge Painting

Established in 1996.

Madani Group Painting

Established in 2010.


Google Reviews

Finally, we get to Google Reviews. In the last few years, Google has made massive efforts to ensure the accuracy of its reviews, but there are still a few falsies that squeak by.

What we did here was, again, search for “Winnipeg Painters”, and then filter by rating to be 4.5+.

Benefits of Residential Exterior Painting

Benefits of Residential Exterior Painting

Painting the exterior of your home can be beneficial for many reasons. With Winnipeg summers being so short, spring, summer, and fall are the best times to take advantage of the weather before it gets too cold.

This is where Vertigo Painters can really help you out. We’re available to do your residential exterior painting for a great value and convenient scheduling.

Here are a few benefits to consider:

  • Protect your home against the elements, especially Winnipeg’s far extremes that we experience
  • Increase your home’s curb appeal
  • Cover up stains or blemishes
  • Upgrade and update your home’s look
  • Increase the value of your home

A great first step to residential exterior painting, assuming that you go for it in your quote, is to pressure wash the exterior. It’s also good to do as it removes marks and dirt.

Unfortunately, pressure washing isn’t a complete cure. Some stains will not come off even with pressure washing as they are permanent.

In this case, covering them with paint is your best option.

Even if you’re not sure about changing the colour of your home’s exterior, we can match the current colour but just freshen it up a bit.

However, if you do decide to go with a new colour, keep in mind that it should match well with the other elements in your yard, such as your landscaping, trees/shurbs, etc.

Always a good idea, as to not necessarily go against the conformity of the neighborhood is to choose a colour that complements your neighbors’ colours.

When you hire Vertigo Painters, we help you through the entire process from selecting the colour right through to the final inspection.

Benefits of Professional Commercial Exterior Painting

Benefits of Professional Commercial Exterior Painting

A lot of businesses run lean today, and sometimes an exterior painting job isn’t exactly a priority, especially if it’s a business that doesn’t or rarely receives customers. However, to really see the potential your commercial building holds, sometimes you need to see it professionally painted to unlock that vision.

While we all know what a paint job can do, sometimes the problem is validating the expense, or if you don’t own the property, convincing the property owner to incur the expense.

stucco painting

Here are some benefits of commercial exterior painting:

  • First and foremost is adding a layer of wall protection
  • Making a good first impression for customers or suppliers coming to your building
  • Increasing the property value of the building
  • Update the appearance to a more modern look
  • Attracting new clients

Some business owners need to validate the reason to paint commercially by backing it up with projections on ROI (return on investment). There are a few ways to look at it. One way is to look at it like how much business will you gain with a new, upgraded paint job. The other is how much business will you not lose because your building no longer looks shabby and run down.

One way to validate is to take a customer survey to see how many customers feel a certain way about what they feel when they walk through your doors.

If your building looks run down and shabby, customers could think that it’s also how you run your business, and how you treat your customers. You will never know how many customers you are sending directly to your competition, who probably have a fresh look on the outside of their building.

Benefits of Interior Painting

Benefits of Interior Painting

Your house’s interior says a lot about you, as your walls should reflect you and be personalized. Everything from furniture to paintings on the wall to the paint colour of your walls.

And within the confines of your walls, you can always create an accent wall that stands out boldly to give the rest of the interior a heightened effect.

At Vertigo Painters, we’re here to help you choose the colour that best exemplifies you and to do it at an affordable cost.

We’ll paint the interior of your home efficiently and with as minimal disruption possible.

Here are some benefits of interior painting:

  • Increase the value of your home
  • Enhance the interior design and ambience
  • Give it more of a contemporary look
  • Protect the walls from damage and wear
  • Create a more consistent cohesive aesthetic

While there are some people who will tackle interior painting themselves, leaving it to the professionals means you get a professional painting job, which is there to stay for years, so you want it done right the first time. As professional Winnipeg painters, we take care of taping edges, covering the floor and furniture, as well as the dreaded and not fun cleanup.

Benefits of Kitchen Cabinet Refinishing

Benefits of Kitchen Cabinet Refinishing

The kitchen is probably the most important communal space in your home, as that is where a lot of us spend most of our time, whether it’s preparing food, cooking it, or cleaning up after.

Your cabinets, then, are probably the most visual focal point of your kitchen, and if they’re looking worn down, refreshing the kitchen cabinets can do wonders for changing the entire ambience.

When your cabinets are needing some love, you’ll essentially have two choices:

  1. Install brand new cabinets, or
  2. Refinish your existing cabinets
cabinet staining

Replacing your kitchen cabinets is definitely the more expensive option, but doing it this way means that you can change the design of the kitchen cabinets as well.

But since not all of us have disposable money lying around to spend on new cabinets, refinishing them might be your best choice.

Here are some of the benefits that you can expect with refinishing your kitchen cabinets:

  • Friendlier to your budget
  • Environmentally conscious
  • Attractive new look
  • Saves time
  • Easier alternative

With kitchen renovations, brand spanking new kitchen cabinets may consume up to 40% of your entire renovation budget.

In most scenarios, new cabinetry isn’t even really necessary.

It turns out that your existing kitchen cabinets might only need a cosmetic makeover if they are already in good condition.

At Vertigo Painters, we’ll ensure that you get the best service to improve the appearance and condition of your current cabinets.

Everything from appearance to operations will benefit from the advantages of professional painting, which is exactly what you need when it comes to industrial space painting in Winnipeg.

How to Choose the Perfect Painter

How to choose the perfect painter

The moment you start searching on Google for a “Winnipeg painter” or “professional Winnipeg painting companies”, or go onto Facebook and post the dreaded ISO (in search of) post looking for recommendations, you’ll be drowned in a lot of options.

The problem with Facebook is that when you post on there looking for recommendations, have the comments are from friends or family of the painters, while the majority of the other half only tag someone without offering very much information, such as quality of work, price, etc.

The trick is to learn how to narrow down those options to the ones that are best suited to what you need done.

choose perfect painter

For example, if you needed someone to paint something higher up, you’d want to look for a company that offers rope services.

Probably the biggest error and misconception out there is that you should do some tire kicking and contact multiple painting contractors to find the lowest price. This isn’t always the best strategy, and we’ll tell you why.

  • While everyone wants to get a cheap price, be careful to check that this doesn’t mean shoddy materials or inferior quality work 
  • With painting, a lot of times you get what you pay for, meaning that the expectations of the final product are greater and more justified when you don’t pay the cheapest price
  • Check for strings attached to the contract. Sometimes contractors will offer you a base plan and then try to upcharge you on other things (i.e. cleanup)
  • Remember that the paint will be there for awhile, so you want the walls to be painted with long-lasting quality, which means looking for good value in high quality work balanced with a reasonable price
  • Let’s say you go with the cheapest painter who doesn’t do a high quality job, and now you have to pay another painter to come in and fix all the mistakes
At Vertigo Painters, we are very reasonable on price, and our quality workmanship speaks for itself.

Why should you hire a professional Winnipeg painter

Why should you hire a professional Winnipeg painter?

Let’s not kid around, there are more resources than ever for homeowners to take a messy and detailed job like painting and turn it into a DIY project.

In fact, most home improvement stores will encourage customers to do it themselves.

And while there’s nothing particularly wrong with that, there should be some things you’re aware of.

Whether you’re trying your hand at painting your home for the very first time, or you’ve done a few walls at some point in the past, the potential is there to make mistakes by anyone who doesn’t have the training, skills, and experience that it takes to properly paint the walls, ceilings, baseboards of your home.

Ian Ferenc professional winnipeg painter

Here are a few common DIYers mistakes:

  • Not doing any preparation or doing it haphazardly
  • Lackluster cleanup
  • Using the wrong sheen
  • Starting to paint without any direction or plan
  • Skipping taping

In reality, the majority of the job is all about the prep work and the cleanup. Painting is the least amount of work in the scope of the project. The other problem that homeowners run into is that they don’t like the paint they bought once they apply it to the walls and see it firsthand. Any professional painter will be able to guide you to what you’re looking for.

Selecting your paint colour and type is something you should consider involving your Winnipeg painter in, as we may have suggestions that make the difference between lackluster and exceptional.

And to put it simply, the other major reason to hire a professional Winnipeg painter is because you deserve a break. Let us take care of it, while you sit back and enjoy life!
