Hi Derek,
I want to tell you that I was very pleased with your crew.  They were professional; punctual; polite and hard-working.  I’m very pleased with the end result and very glad that I decided to go with Careful Painting.  If I ever need another job done or know someone who needs painting I shall have absolutely no hesitation in recommending your company.

I have hired several painters and wallpaper hangers in the past, and Derek and his team are the only company I will hire. I have hired his services two years in a row.

Every time he delivers to my high expectations.
Arriving on time when he said he will.  Listening to my requirements, and applying the paint and hanging the wall paper perfectly on my high 10 foot high walls.
He is trust worthy and honest and takes great pride in his work. I can’t wait to hire him again for the next room refurbishment!

When my wife and I decided to have most of our 3,000 square foot apartment in Coal Harbour repainted we sought a number of bids from firms that had been recommended to us by the local Benjamin Moore store.  We chose the quote from Derek Bardon at Careful Painting because of the completeness of the quote which indicated to us that Derek really understood what we wanted in having our apartment repainted.

Andrea and Kurt, the painters that Derek assigned to us, were with us for 9 days and did a terrific job.  They arrived on time each day and were extremely attentive in ensuring that our lives were disrupted as little as possible while the painting was underway.  Their attention to detail in preparing each area being painted was all that you could hope for, the end result was exceptional and they made sure that everything was cleared away at the end of each day so that we were not constantly reminded of the fact that we were in the midst of a repainting exercise.

Andrea and Kurt stayed very much to the schedule that Derek had laid out for us and even managed to come in a little under the budget that had been provided.  Always a nice surprise.  We would have no hesitation in recommending Careful Painting and we would certainly use them again.

Another Happy Careful Painting Customer

Lori C ~ Point Grey

“I hired Careful Painting to paint by back deck, after collecting a few other estimates.  I went with Derek because, although his pricing was not the lowest in the lot, I had a sense that I could trust him to deliver.  And, my instincts were right. Derek’s crew showed up when they said they would and completed the project on time and on budget.  The crew was friendly and professional and provided me with a refreshed and well-painted deck.  I am a discriminating customer and highly recommend their services.”

“Selecting a quality contractor is critical, and after a lengthy period of research, I chose to contact Careful Painting for an estimate. Derek exceeded all my expectations, with honesty, trust, reliability, and value making this project an enjoyable experience.

Derek listened to my preferences, and offered appropriate advice to ensure the best outcome. His crew consistently arrived on time, worked hard and delivered quality results with minimal impact.

I gladly recommend Careful Painting to any needing this service.”

David Wilson ~ Kitsilano

“Derek and his crew painted my duplex last summer. The duplex is a tall structure and thus required careful ladder placement, especially on the sides due to proximity with the neighbours’ houses. Although challenged by the wet spring weather, the crew were extremely competent with both preparation and painting, completing the job within the budget. I have no hesitation recommending Careful Painting.”

Derek’s team at Careful Painting have painted the entire outside (Benjamin Moore paints) and inside (Farrow and Ball) of my traditional cedar shake house in West Point Grey. They have also taken care of some repairs and refreshment of walls or wood trim from time to time. Derek has been very professional, courteous and timely in all his dealings. His team have lived up to the name of being very careful professionals who did an excellent job and cleaned up thoroughly. They have provided high quality painting in a house full of complicated ceiling angles, wood trim and window muntins. As I work fulI time, I particularly appreciated leaving the entire job to them and knowing they could get it done under Derek’s supervision (and without mine!).

“Hi Derek,

Just a quick note to say thank you for the recent painting projects completed at my house that is located in McKenzie Heights, Vancouver. All of the exterior doors, windows and wood trim were painted.  In addition, your crew was able to accommodate my last minute request to paint the deck.The workmanship and attention to detail was excellent and the projects were completed in a clean, tidy and timely manner and on budget.

Thank you,

Doug C., McKenzie Heights”

Derek and Careful Painiting did a great job in cleaning, sanding and renewing the finish and lustre of my cedar deck 3 years ago after years of wear and weathering. I have had them back every year since to re-stain and maintain the finish. Derek takes the time to understand what I’d like the finished project to look like and walk through the work recommended to achieve this. He provides options for different types of stain products and explains the pros and cons of each. The Careful Painting team provide a professional service, keep the work site clean while the job is in progress, work carefully around nearby trees and shrubs, and clean up when the project is done. Based on my experience I would recommend Careful Painting.
