Why The Urban Painter Is The Clear Choice For Calgary

In a big city like Calgary, you have your pick of plenty of potential painters (there’s a tongue twister!) when you’re looking to do a project. But with so many choices, how do you weed out the good companies from the bad ones? How do you know you’ll get the most bang for your buck?

Well, not to be biased, but we firmly believe that we at The Urban Painter offer a winning combination of service, quality, and professionalism that sets us above our competitors. Here’s what we do to make sure you’re happy with our work and that your home is in better shape when we’re done than when we started.

No Subcontractors All Employees

You may already be anxious about a crew of strangers coming into your home and being there while you’re not, and that’s understandable. That’s why we make no exceptions to this rule: anyone in our uniform is a full-time trusted employee, who knows all of our policies and guidelines. We won’t be having new people constantly in and out of your home, and you’ll soon get to know our friendly workers well we make a point of only hiring people who are excellent team players and have the right attitude for our job sites.

The Urban Painter promise

The Urban Painter promises our clients that we will: start and finish on time; maintain a neat and clean project; make sure our language isn’t offensive; take care of all details; and stand behind our work. We care about how you feel while the work is getting done.

Transparency and Accountability

We take great pride in delivering one of the best customer service experiences in Calgary. From the first time we meet, to the final payment, we strive to have our procedures well-documented, our contracts easy to understand, and our methods proven successful yet again. You’ll never receive a final bill with hundreds of dollars in hidden fees, or find out that we’ve decided to charge you for work you didn’t approve.


While we tend to have regular starting and ending hours in order to be less disruptive to your home life, we are always open to shifting schedules to accommodate yours. We’ve done overnight work, half-days, split weeks, project rearranging our aim is to be as unintrusive as possible. Just let us know how we can make your painting experience a good one!

Cleanliness and Appearance

We take our professionalism and appearance very seriously, and aim to break the stereotype of the typical painter with dirty clothes and tools. Our uniforms and tools are replaced regularly in order to stay clean, and we have high standards for our job sites. It’s a little thing to most people, but it makes a very big difference to us at The Urban Painter.

Commitment to High Quality Service & Guarantee of Workmanship

We go to great lengths to be the best painting company in the city, and it shows in our quality of work. We extensively train our employees using standardized material, and regularly update with new training as time goes on, and our methods and materials are the same across the whole company so there is no miscommunication. Because of our high standards, we are proud to offer a two-year guarantee on all labour and materials we stand by our work, and creating happy clients is the most important part for us. We book many of our projects through word-of-mouth and referrals, and we like to think that it’s not all a coincidence that so many people are happy with our performance!
