The Goodbrush | Best Paint Company in Toronto
Naomi Thulien
We were so happy working with John on painting our condo (all walls/ceilings/trim). It is clear that he really cares about excellence - something that is often hard to find these days. He treats the job like he is painting his own home. He takes pride in his work. The price is on the higher end but absolutely worth it (you really do get what you pay for). We highly recommend The Goodbrush Painting Co.!!

Very happy with the Goodbrush! I was moving into a new unit and went for a walkthrough, but the walls were in rough shape. My agent immediately recommended John, who managed to squeeze me in with just a couple days notice. John was responsive and patient as we talked through the options, and guided me towards a paint colour that I was happy with. Upon arrival, the painters were professional, fast, easy to work with and did a great job. They completely refreshed the unit, all at a competitive price. I will definitely use again in the future.

We reached out to Goodbrush to paint our wooden kitchen cabinets in our condo and overall had a wonderful experience with John and his team :) During the RFQ process, John really impressed us with his deep expertise and advice. Before even providing a quote he gave us so many tips and information on the process. We're really grateful that he took the time to really communicate to us and we found the knowledge invaluable. It was also important for us to find someone local to work with since we felt that it would be more convenient to work with a business based in Toronto. We were pleased find out that Goodbrush was only a short distance from where we are in North York! The Goodbrush team were incredibly quick and efficient with our project. The whole process end to end was smooth and seamless! It was our first time working with painters and we definitely felt that we were in good hands with Goodbrush. Our trust was in the right place and they really delivered. Our cabinets look like they're brand new and our kitchen transformed thanks to the excellent work from Goodbrush. John and his team at Goodbrush are not only skilled at what they do but are knowledgeable and genuine. It truly was a pleasure to work with them :)

We had a very pleasant experience recently as we contracted The Good Brush to stain our bricks. John was very helpful and communication between us was great. The work took around 4 days to complete and looks great. We definitely would recommend The Good Brush to others.

Thank you, John & team for the excellent exterior paint job on my home! It was a wonderful experience working with John & team from beginning to end. John was very knowledgeable with the work that had to be done and I appreciated the time he spent pointing out the areas that would require special attention before making recommendations and providing a detailed estimate. My freshly painted house looks amazing all around, especially at the front, after the excellent work (complete stripping, precise staining and refinishing) John did, restoring my 20+yr weather-beaten oak front door back to its original natural beauty, and at the back where the team did extensive repairs on the 3-storey panels and bay window during prepping which made all the difference with the final product. John and his team are committed to customer satisfaction and made sure that I was happy with the end result. The service, communication and quality of workmanship were top-notch and I would gladly with no hesitation use The Goodbrush Painting again for future projects.
