The best Paints do cost more, but you the homeowner will always benefit over time in terms of paint odour, colour retention, durability, coverage, and finish.

In most cases we use Benjamin Moore, Sherwin Williams and (Vancouver’s own) General Paint products.  These  companies all produce high quality lines of paint, which are a pleasure to use, and outperform many other paint companies paints. For Specialty wood finishes and stains, Careful Painting recommends Sikkens products.

Careful Painting always recommends using the top of the line paint. We don’t skimp on materials and we don’t thin your paint. When you, the customer, choose the brand of paint, we use that brand. – “You have my personal guarantee on that.”  Derek Bardon – Owner of Careful Painting.

The customer is always free to choose any brand of paint locally available. Other than Benjamin Moore and General Paint and Sherwin Williams, these include

  • Dulux/Glidden ICI
  • Cabot specialty wood stains
  • Coronado specialty metal paints & industrial finishes
  • Farrow & Ball

We will always be happy to further advise you in choosing the brand of paint for your project. We are also very helpful and knowledgeable when it comes to when to using today’s Hybrid Oil / Alkyd products, and when it is better to use a high quality Acrylic Latex paint.
