Some homeowners have a few questions before our team begins and we’ve got all the answers. Take a moment to review some of our most frequently asked questions below or give us a call today to speak to our team in person about residential painting and wallpapering services.


We generally price by the job but we can price by the room or by the hour as well. If extensive preparation is involved, such as drywall repair, stucco removal or wallpaper removal, these parts of the job are billed on an hourly basis.


Are you insured?

We carry $2 million in liability insurance.


When you start our job will you finish it, or leave in the middle only to return at some future time?

It is our policy to finish a job once we start it. On occasion, we have to wait on other contractors to complete their work before we can do our job. If there is a scheduling issue we will always make the customer aware of it, and make arrangements that are to the satisfaction of all concerned parties.

What do I need to do to get ready for the day you arrive to paint?

While we do every possible thing to make the entire experience easier for you, there are a few things we ask you to do prior to us arriving. We ask that in the room(s) to be painted you remove all valuable, breakables, pictures, wall hangings, lamps or tall objects that could topple when plastic/drop sheets are place on/over them. Secondly, we ask that you leave a space closest to entrance way so we can unload our equipment and supplies into your home with ease for the duration of the project (if possible). Thirdly, please make sure during the cold winter months that all walkways and driveways are cleared of snow and all icy surfaces salted/sanded. While we understand during the winter months that plows can come by during the day, we ask that for our arrival that all driveways and sidewalks are cleared.

What payment methods do you accept?

We accept Amex, Visa, Mastercard and Discover for a fee, and cash or cheque.

Can you break it down per room?

We generally price by the job but we can price by the room or by the hour as well. If extensive preparation is involved, such as drywall repair, stucco removal or wallpaper removal, these parts of the job are billed on an hourly basis.


The preferred paint is Para or Benjamin Moore due to its performance and warranty. We are well versed in products across the board and can recommend certain products for certain jobs.

Will it be messy?

At Kane’s painting & papering we cover all floors furniture and counters, etc., with drop sheets, building paper or plastic sheeting. There is no getting around the fact that there will be dust. That is an inevitable part of painting. However, we do clean up and vacuum when we are finished in order to minimize our impact. In most cases, customers will want to do a thorough cleaning themselves, after we’ve finished our general clean up. If customers need access to a room we are in the process of painting we can accommodate that request.


Do we have to move the furniture?

In most cases, we will move the furniture. This will be discussed beforehand. Please remove breakables, large screen TV’s, and potentially other valuables.


Do you require a deposit?

We have a payment schedule that is straight forward and easy to follow: For jobs less than 3 days, payment is due in full immediately upon completion. For jobs greater than 3 days, we ask for a deposit of 50% of the total project price up front which covers the purchase of supplies etc. The remaining amount is due in full upon complete satisfaction of the work which is usually the last day. This is a policy we have set up for all customers. We feel it’s a way of meeting the client half way. All of our equipment will be left on your premises as well as the paid for paint inventory for your job.
