Commercial painting presents its own unique challenges and needs that we are more than ready to help fill.

Second Generation Painting will work around your business needs to minimize disruption to your businesses operation, your clients, and your employees.

We’ll work in the evenings or overnight. We’ll consult with you on all aspects of the project. We’ll use low VOC paints for painting your commercial building to ensure the public isn't affected by the odour and fumes.

Meet the Owner: Dave McGowan

I believe that a paint job shouldn’t cause any anxiety and we’re here to facilitate that.

I want my customers to be able to trust a job will be done right and both client and contractor can walk away happy.

How are we different from other companies? 

Being the second generation painter in the family, I have formal training that includes:

  • BCIT Painting and Decorating training
  • Painters and allied trades apprenticeship training
  • I am a journeyman painter with over 22 years of experience

Typically other contractors have apprentices or workers that may be new to the trade. I hire only well seasoned journeymen painters that i trust and don’t require training.

We also provide specialized services that the average paint company might not:

  • Finish carpentry (installation of baseboard, window and door casings and crown moulding)
  • Smoothing textured ceilings
  • Faux finishes
  • Repainting existing cabinets (on site)

Two-Year, No-Hassle Warranty

You don’t need to be a lawyer to read our fine print. Because there isn’t any.

When it comes to our painting warranty, we keep it simple. We think that’s the best way to do business and that’s the way our customers want it. So when you see paint that has flaked, peeled, blistered or generally failed to live up to your expectations, we want to hear about it. If at any time, for two years after we have finished your painting project, you have a problem, we will come out and fix it — at no cost to you. And if there is ever a problem with the paint itself during the warranty period, we will deal with the manufacturer for you.

It’s one more way Second Generation Painting is different. And why you should consider calling us next time you have a job to do. We want to build a relationship with our customers that will last for years.
