Whether refreshing your home in time for the holidays or eyeing the final stages of a major renovation or construction project, finding exceptional painting talent when you need it can be a challenge in this busy market.
The key is finding a respected company with the resources to do what they promise.
“We’re in the middle of a construction boom here on the South Island and many people are having difficulty finding trades to complete their projects,” says Van Isle Paint’s Glen Smethurst.
“I have contracted Van Isle Paint to re-paint multiple properties throughout Victoria and the Westshore. The team at Van Isle Paint is professional, reliable and the quality of work has been exceptional.”

Choosing a professional
When companies with few resources and less experience see opportunity in a booming market, customers can be left hanging. However, by choosing a business with experience, ample staff and a reputation for quality, home and business owners can be confident their project will be both beautiful and on time.
Van Isle Paint has 20 full-time staff and four vans on the road.
They’ve also built close relationships with fellow B.C. company Cloverdale Paint – their go-to for many of their paint products – along with Behr, Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams. Better yet, Van Isle Paint chooses low-VOC and zero-VOC paint – water-based and easy to clean, with little or no off-gassing of chemicals like some other products.
“It’s not new to us,” Smethurst says. “From a single room in a home to large construction projects to insurance claims, we treat every project with the same level of commitment.”
“Our firm hired Van Isle Paint to complete the interior and exterior paint application on a 14-unit townhouse development. They addressed our project with a keen eye while adhering to the urgency of timing.”

From preparation to clean-up
“Because of our experience, we have a system that goes to every jobsite. All painters have at least five years of painting experience and undergo extensive onboarding, covering everything from preparation to clean-up. We have a quality assurance manual, an interior and exterior guide for every project, and we have foreman with every crew,” Smethurst says.
Find confidence in the details
For added peace of mind, look for a painting or contracting company with all required accreditations, liability insurance and other indicators of a responsibly run business.
For example, in addition to WorkSafe BC compliance, Van Isle Paint has $5 million in liability insurance and an A+ BBB rating. And because they have undertaken a variety of government work, they have a Canadian Government Level B security clearance.
