From start to finish of painting the interior of our bungalow, Greg and team did a very professional job. They were very neat and orderly and most of all trustworthy as I was away during the whole project. Would highly recommend this company in a heartbeat! Needed carpentry work done prior to the painting and Daryl did a beautiful job. Such nice brothers to deal with and so personable. We have "Property Brothers" right here in North Bay!!

Having the house painted by Greg and his crew was an excellent experience from start to finish. Greg made sure we selected a quality paint product and did several paint samples on the house to make sure the colour was correct, even going as far as to colour match a colour from a different paint product line. The crew painted the house very efficiently and worked around an event we had planned, they made sure to put drop clothes everywhere they were painting and cleaned up at the end of the day so that you wouldn't know they had been at the house. I am very pleased with how the house looks and would recommend Greg and his crew to anyone looking to paint their house exterior.

Greg and the crew from "A Fresh Coat" recently painted our lakeside home and we must say we were very impressed with the overall experience. Despite the inclement weather, they juggled their schedule to keep our project moving forward on the few dry days we had. Much appreciated and the entire process from prep through final cleanup was handled very professionally. My wife and I are very pleased with the results. We would not hesitate to recommend Greg and the crew at A Fresh Coat to our friends.

Terry and Kirsten Kavanagh


"Thank you does not really say enough. Being under tight timelines with my renovations, Greg was the only one that said 'I will make it happen'. I kept him posted on the progress of the renovations and when the final sanding was done Greg and his crew were here the next morning. I was so impressed with the set up, work and clean up. What they did in 2 days was absolutely incredible. Their work is wonderful, and they took great care of my home, not to mention they were awesome with my dogs. I have never had professional painters before and I can honestly say 'wow, what a treat'.

I would highly recommend Greg and his crew to anyone and would not hesitate to have them back.
Thank you so much Greg and team, we all love our fresh new look!!!"

Melody & Mike Peterson

We hired Greg and his team at "A Fresh Coat" to stain the exterior of our wood home. The job was completed very professionally with the completion of the job in just 2 days. Greg patiently consulted with us on the colour and quality of the product to be used. We are very happy with the results and with the professionalism of Greg and his crew in cleaning up after the job! We highly recommend Greg and the team for your next painting project!

Mike & Sandra Lavoie


We just had some interior painting done in our house and I would definitely recommend Greg Graff and his paint crew from "A Fresh Coat". The job was professionally completed from the start to the finish. The painters were sociable as well as efficient and considerate of the surrounding area.

Wes & Sue


Chris and I would like to thank Greg and his team for the great paint job completed in our home. Throughout they were professional, punctual and thorough. Our home is older presenting some challenges. They persevered until the problem was resolved. Greg kept in communication with us throughout and was a pleasure to deal with. We highly recommend him and his company.

Chris and Wendy


“Initially we weren't sure if we should hire painters to do our kitchen, because we figured we could simply do the job ourselves. But after looking at the tight corners, narrow gaps between cupboards and moving appliances, we decided to call A Fresh Coat. This was absolutely the right call; they were able to quickly assess how to get into the tight spaces and did so efficiently and beautifully. They were punctual, trustworthy, professional, and very friendly. I still don't know how they were able to get behind certain cupboards! Thanks for the great work!”

Recently, I hired Greg and his team from A Fresh Coat to paint a few rooms in my home. They did an amazing job. So much so, I asked them back to paint most of the remaining rooms. The quality of the workmanship was exceptional.

Working with Greg and his staff was a pleasure. His quotes were accurate, fair and provided in a timely manner. They started when they said they would, finished on time and cleaned up after themselves. When there was an issue or I had a concern it was quickly addressed. Greg was always available to talk to or would get back to me as soon as he could. He made a point of saying he wasn’t happy until I was happy and he held true to his word.

I have no hesitation recommending Greg and A Fresh Coat to others. Thank you for the great work.

Dr. Jim Chirico



I needed my interior painting done quickly and was delighted that Greg was willing to work within my time lines. Greg was great to deal with, the quote was very reasonable and there were no surprise charges in the end. I was very pleased with the quality job done by Robert and grateful for the thorough cleanup he performed once the job was complete. Would definitely recommend them to my friends and neighbours. Great job guys!

I have used the Fresh Coat team of painters on three large projects over the last six years and have consistently been very pleased with their work. The gentlemen who work for this company are pleasant, considerate, thorough, and very capable with the preparation and painting work they do. I highly recommend this company if you are looking for residential or commercial painting specialists.

Dr. Nancy Maynes



We gave you the challenge to clean, rejuvenate and preserve the wavy red cedar siding on our cottage. You did a thorough job including painting all the window frames and the screen door. But the thing we appreciated the most was the excellent communication between us about the job. You responded to our request promptly, gave us an estimate with details and choices and stayed in touch till the job was complete to our satisfaction. Thank you.

Doug & Pat Young



"A Fresh Coat" did an excellent job of staining the cedar siding on the exterior second floor of our house on Parsons Avenue. Their service and recommendations on completion of the job was very professional. The painters did an excellent job of staining, clean-up and restoring the siding to excellent condition. I would recommend this company for any painting project as their service was second to none!

T. Collins



I can’t heap enough praise on Greg and his team from A Fresh Coat for the literally fantastic job they did on the exterior of our cedar covered home. Due to unforeseen circumstances the cedar had been neglected for several years and was looking very drab, bleached, dirty and ‘vulnerable’. I was very discouraged with the outlook for the wood, having been told by another professional painter that the cedar was too water stained, weathered and grimy with pollen and air-borne particles that the only solution was to apply a solid stain and basically cover up the cedar. I was also given a very high estimate for that work to be completed.

My experience with Greg and his team almost echoes everything written here by “Mary Lou and Paul”. I most definitely did not want a solid stain (like paint) on our beautiful cedar siding and, I was not at all pleased with the price I had been quoted previously - so I decided to look around and get a second opinion. I found Greg’s web site, www.afreshcoatnorthbay.com and read through all the excellent testimonials. I gave Greg a call on a Monday morning around 10:30. By 1:00 p.m. he was at my door ready to have a look at the house and give me an estimate.

He determined that the house could be cleaned and that they could apply a transparent stain which would protect the wood and allow the grain and naturalness of the cedar to ‘shine’ through. By 4:00 p.m. that day I received an estimate for the job - an estimate that was less than half the cost of the first estimate I had received. Work began two days later with his team hand-scrubbing the entire cedar surfaces of the house with brushes and cleaner. The results were spectacular. The cedar looked unbelievably almost ‘new’. I was VERY impressed. With the warm weather and sunshine the cedar dried a couple of days later and the first coat of transparent stain was applied, followed a few days after that by a second and final coat. The results are beautiful. I am so pleased and so relieved that the cedar was able to be restored and preserved as much as it has been. Following a bit of rainy inclement weather, Greg and his team were back to apply stain to the porch railings and paint to the two antique porch posts, completing the job in record time and, as others have said, with the utmost courtesy, attention to detail and immaculate clean-up. I cannot recommend Greg and his team highly enough!!

"We hired Greg Graff from "A Fresh Coat" to paint our kitchen including our oak cupboards. The final coat of white paint on the cupboard doors looks like a factory finish. Greg (the son) who did the painting was professional in both his manner & the quality of his work and was a pleasure to have in the house. I would certainly hire this company for any further work & have no hesitation in recommending them to others."

“Greg and his team did an excellent job repainting the exterior wooden siding on my house at a very reasonable price.

We would, and already have, recommended them to anyone that mentions painting! “

Thanks!
- Avis and Sherri


“We contacted Mr. Graff’s company, A FRESH COAT, to discuss the exterior painting of our home’s walls. It was very pleasing for us to have Mr. Graff respond to our phone call in a very timely manner and further, to have him come for an estimate within a few days of our phone call. His courteous and pleasant manner during our initial visit helped us make the decision to hire A FRESH COAT to do our painting. More than once, Mr. Graff communicated with us as to when the painting would begin. He was very aware of the weather; we were happy that he was choosing the best painting and drying weather for our project. We were told exactly the time and day his company would arrive and they were good to their word. We found their workmanship to be extremely tidy and efficient. There appeared to be a strong work ethic so that our project was completed with no delay and no mess. Mr. Graff and his son have a friendly and positive attitude about their work which made it pleasant to have them in our yard. The completed project was beautiful; it made us smile! The cost to us was very reasonable and the quality of the work was excellent. We feel very comfortable recommending this company, A FRESH COAT, to neighbours or friends for painting projects.”

Sincerely,
- Mary Lou and Paul



“Just had the inside of our home painted by Greg and his son. What a beautiful job they did. We felt very comfortable having them in our home. After they were done they left the place very neat and tidy. Other than a new color on the walls etc. you would not have known anyone was here. Kudos for putting up with the half blind old lady hahaha. We would recommend them to anyone who wants their house painted. Thanks again for the great job.“

- Nancy and Wayne

Your company always provided us with great service, quality and reliability for which we are very grateful to you.

-The Kennedys



“We moved in our new house in November 2014. Things have been very difficult from the get go, from moving during a snow storm, to a flood, to a never ending kitchen renovation.

But the one thing that went absolutely perfectly and was totally painless is the painting.

To start, Greg’s quote was almost half of the one somebody else had given us. He also gave us excellent advice when we were trying to keep the cost down.Greg and his crew did the work incredibly fast. I seriously don’t know how they can work so fast.

They were so clean and tidy, so precise and so meticulous.

Greg had to be flexible enough to work around the schedule of the other people that were working in our house.

He cheered me up when I was totally discouraged because of the bad luck we were having.

He was patient when I had to cancel and postpone his work.

At the end, I had no kitchen counter, no sink, no light, my brand new floors were scratched and I had drywall dust everywhere for weeks…

But the walls in the rest of the house looked absolutely fantastic and the final price was as we were quoted.

There. If you need somebody skilled, honest, kind and reliable for your painting jobs…. Greg is your guy!

Too bad he doesn’t do moves, kitchen reno, plumbing and electricity.”

- Doug and Marie-Claude


“Thanks to Greg and his team for a job well done. We are pleased to recommend “A Fresh Coat” to do a very professional job. Very pleasant people to work in our home”




Thank you so very much! I am so pleased with your work, beautiful job!

- Sandy



“I can't say enough good things about my experience with Greg and his crew. I had a large interior job including the removal of old wallpaper in a split entry. It was tough, involved and not very pleasant but the guys completed the work professionally, in the promised time frame and the estimate was spot on. I can't get over the transformation! Sometimes when we envision something the end result doesn't match what we see in our head. Not so in this case. Their work exceeded my expectations and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone who wants professional work with competitive pricing.“

- Debbie

Greg is his own hardest critic constantly examining his work to make sure it lives up to his rigorous standards. Greg is very professional, cleaning up after himself each evening so as not to inconvenience us in any way. In short, it was a pleasure to have him in our home and we would recommend him to anyone based on his work ethic and excellent end product.”

"We recently had an income property repainted by 'A Fresh Coat' and were more than pleased with the result. The job had its obstacles (difficult-to-access areas, wasp nests, and mismatched paint we had purchased ourselves), but was completed professionally and with a smile.

Greg was accommodating, agreeing to do some work not in the original quote, and kept us informed of the progress and his schedule. The job-site was left tidy at the end of each day, and final clean-up was excellent.

In short, we would highly recommend Greg and 'A Fresh Coat' to friends for a great job, friendly service and a very reasonable price.

Thanks again Greg"

- Donna and Bob

"If you are considering Greg Graff for hire, please read the following. After 4 major renovations over the last few years, we have hired several contractors. For our current project, we chose Greg to paint the exterior of our house (Circa 1990, cedar shingles, 7000 square foot house + garage). Of all the contractors we've had dealings with, Greg is the first and only contractor that came through as agreed upon. The final invoice matched the quote and he finished the job on schedule. He works with his son and they do an excellent job; they are meticulous, tidy, organized and they work with a smile. What a pleasure it was working with them on this project...thank you Greg and Greg!!"

- Melanie Viau

You will be highly recommended by me and I will be glad to be a reference for any of your potential future customers."

“We found Mr. Graff's work to be exceptionally thorough and skilled. He provided timely responses to requests for quotes, worked diligently to complete the work, cleaned up the space to be as unobtrusive as possible, and was pleasant to have around for a large exterior paint job. We highly recommend Greg. We were very appreciative of his knowledge and skill and his willingness to be responsive to our needs and timelines.“

“Greg did a wonderful job painting the exterior of our house. It is amazing how many people in our neighbourhood have come up to let us know how much the appearance of our house has been improved since it has been painted.

I would highly recommend Greg to anyone!“
