“PERFECTIONISM AND ‘NO PROBLEM’ ATTITUDE INSPIRED CONFIDENCE”


“We want to thank you for the absolutely superb work you and your team have carried out with respect to our renovation. It was particularly gratifying to be able to work with a contractor who was able to undertake the entire job and to coordinate everything in such an accommodating and efficient manner. You have put together an amazing team. While you more than lived up to your promise of “European Quality and Workmanship” it was your perfectionism and ‘no problem’ attitude to virtually every suggestion we made that inspired confidence. We also very much appreciated your dependability and integrity in ensuring we were 100% happy with the job. We are more than happy—we are absolutely delighted with our ‘rejuvenated’ home, thanks to you and your team.”

“KNOWLEDGEABLE, POLITE AND VERY ACCOMMODATING”


"Abretti Painting & Renovations have completed several projects in my home over the past month. One of the reasons I chose them over several other painting contractors I spoke to was because of their ability to tackle several other projects as well as the painting. The projects were as follows: painted seven rooms, installed ceramic tile border along existing tile, painted bathroom vanities (making them look very modern & stylish), added chair rails around two rooms, inserted glass panels in several kitchen cabinets, painted kitchen cupboards (giving the kitchen a complete new look). Not only was I more than satisfied with the finished products, I can’t say enough about the professionalism of all the staff. They were a pleasure to have in my home. They were knowledgeable, polite and very accommodating; nothing was ever too much trouble.”

“PROFESSIONALISM AND DETAIL WORK ASTONISHING”


“It is with absolute pleasure that we provide any future customer of Abretti Painting & Renovations with the most positive recommendation for their work. My husband and I were hesitant to paint our entire house at one time – especially just before the holiday season but Abretti Painting & Renovations were the most professional painters we have ever dealt with and the work they have done is second to none. With a young child and a small dog in the house, my husband and I were ready for complete upheaval of the household during the painting process and to our pleasant surprise, the inconvenience was extremely minimal. One room was worked on at a time and upon arriving home each evening, the room was not only painted but it was put back to its original format. We would strongly recommend Abretti Painting & Renovations and we have absolutely no hesitation in stating that the professionalism and the detail work were astonishing.”

“OUTCOME IS THRILLING”


“Many thanks for the amazing renovations you made to my condo. It was an extensive undertaking with many decisions to be made affecting the outcome; I was somewhat overwhelmed. However, you were dauntless with the enormous task before you, reassured my partner I …and the ‘outcome’ is thrilling! The condo was amazingly transformed throughout into a delightful abode. What was particularly pleasant for me was that you and your crew never once gave us a concern and that speaks volumes for your professionalism, expertise and thoroughness. For us each visit to the reno site was an exciting and happy experience and now with the renos completed, it is an absolute joy to live in. If ever there is an opportunity to recommend Abretti Painting & Renovations for work to be done I will be delighted to do so.”

“EVERYONE MARVELS AT THE QUALITY”



“I have to say that when Mr. Abretti arrived at my condo to view the scope of work and provide a quote, my mind was made up within 3 minutes. Immediately, a list of references and a detailed description of services provided by Abretti Painting & Renovations was placed in my hand (that in itself was noteworthy). Trying to do any work in a 760 sq. ft. condo is a challenge to start with but they faced all the obstacles with professionalism and did a stellar job. This renovation took place in mid February and I was comfortable leaving everyone to come and go while I carried on with my schedule. I have already recommended Abretti Painting & Renovations to several people and will continue to do so. My condo has been transformed and everyone who visits marvels at the quality. In this day and age it is a true bonus when you find a team that is punctual and on track with their deadlines. I can't say enough.”

"Denis and I are both delighted with the fine job you did. We had heard very good things of your work, but you and your excellent painters managed to surpass our expectations! We were particularly impressed with your care in every detail --for example, in assuring that the paint for the living room matched the original and your meticulous attention to the refinishing of the ceiling and the repair of the woodwork. In addition to the quality of the finished work, we appreciated your efficiency and care in moving the furniture, etc., before painting and restoring everything to normal afterwards. We could scarcely believe how quick and painless you made it all seem!"

"QUICK AND ACCURATE WORK"



"Abretti team did very quick and accurate work. I wanted several different colours, and not only did they follow the plan exactly, but they managed to paint my entire condo in a day (and left the place tidy!). More importantly still, the team obviously took pride in their work, and happily came back to do a small touch-up, which was appreciated."

"Corrado and his team provided excellent service; he made sure the painting would be completed before a date imposed by personal circumstances.  He always made sure that the painting and subsequent clean up interfered as little as possible in our daily routines.  He was happy to touch-up any areas which may have been of concern, and even on occasion made suggestions with respect to colors which may have been less than ideal in a given area. He and his team were always extremely courteous and pleasant, and we are thrilled with the result."


Janet Desroches

“FAR SURPASSED EXPECTATIONS”


 


“We had the pleasure of working with Corrado Abretti and his team of painters this past September.  The quality of their work far surpassed our expectations.  Corrado advised us that the required work would take 5 to 6 days to complete and they finished painting in the estimated time-frame.  Corrado’s team are meticulous professionals who take great pride in their work and as a result we were delighted with their workmanship.  They arrived on time, cleaned up at the end of each day such that the experience was not a major interruption to our daily lives.  Each of the painters were wonderful to deal with, made recommendations that we hadn’t given any thought to and took time to assist with furniture placement.  Without a doubt we would definitely recommend Corrado Abretti and his team to our friends and family members.”

"AMAZING JOB"



"Dear Corrado, Dropping you a note of appreciation for the amazing job that you and your painters did in our home! We were reluctant to spend money for painting and renovations since we are selling our home, however we are so glad we did. Chris and John were so pleasant, professional, easy to work with, provided great suggestions and the painting is impeccable. They went beyond the painting putting up the mirrors in the bathrooms, fixing the light fixtures and putting back all the curtain hardware. Your oversight of the job, handiwork making the door for the mystery panel in the rec room and other recommendations when you gave us the estimate were also appreciated. We were also under some time pressure, so your quick response was just what the doctor ordered, then John and Chris' calm demeanour and no problem attitudes alleviated all of our stress. You have a delightful, hardworking team and I would highly recommend you to everyone! Thanks again for an excellent job!"

“ABSOLUTELY AMAZING TRANSFORMATION”


"We recently had the interior of our home painted. Our home is 60 years old, consists primarily of walls constructed of plaster, and the last time we had our home painted was approximately 15 years ago. Prior to painting, there was considerable preparation work involved including dealing with the previous use of oil-based paint. Corrado Abretti provided us with a timeline in completing their work. We were extremely happy with every level of their work, including their careful attention to detail, their day-to-day professionalism and cleanliness, their ability to stick with our original timeline, and finally the absolutely amazing transformation of the final product. We cannot say enough in terms of how happy we were with everything. We would highly recommend Abretti Painting and Renovations to anyone considering their house to be painted. You will not be disappointed."

We will be using your services again!

“FANTASTIC WORK”

"Our church wants to thank you for the fantastic work your firm accomplished in our sanctuary. This, as you know was a complex job which involved sheeting, plastering and painting. The job was done to our complete satisfaction, with no surprises and the whole area was thoroughly cleaned. Your staff cooperated with both the congregation and our staff, allowing the people to view the work and took time out to explain the process. This extra time your staff provided was a bonus and will make our fundraising easier in the future. A number of our church members were so impressed they have asked that our committee ensure that your team is hired to take on the remaining phases of the project. This, we think, speaks volumes about your work and the time you have spent with all us to get this project off the ground. Again we would have no problem in recommending your firm to others and we would be proud to show off the work you undertook at our church to any prospective clients. Thank you again."

Corrado Abretti visited us to assess and estimate the work and his professional approach and pleasant manner instilled confidence in his company's commitment to quality work and focus on client needs and expectations. A family crisis caused us to delay the scheduled work and Corrado not only postponed the work but also scheduled a team of his painters to finish the work quickly to accommodate our family needs.
