Our Painting Services


Our painters are highly motivated university and college students who are driven by their desire to gain valuable real world business experience while earning money to help fund their ongoing post secondary education. We have used this model to provide quality interior and exterior painting services to homeowners since 1981; we are consistently able to attract the best students from across Canada who share our core values. We are proud of our thousands of satisfied homeowners as well as our student painters and operators who have used their summer experience to grow as individuals and launch their careers.   Each of our painters completes an intensive training program before ever reaching a job site. The program covers not only the skills required to do excellent work in prepping, painting and staining interior and exterior spaces, but also the information needed to do so safely. Our crews handle about 5,000 projects each year, and we've been at it since 1981, so you can be confident that our methods for recruiting, training and deploying our painting managers and crews results in successfully completed projects job after job, year after year. We have hundreds of thousands of satisfied customers across Eastern Canada. Take a look at some of our work.  

Many of our customers have wondered if hiring a student is the best choice for their home painting project. We believe that our highly selective hiring procedures and our intensive training programs for both painters and managers along with more than 30 years' experience to share with our students, and hundreds of thousands of satisfied customers are evidence enough that Student Works painters will perform the task to your rigorous standards. In fact, we guarantee it.

Whether we are painting the exterior or the interior of your home, whether we're refreshing the trim on your windows, or updating your entire house, our team of painters will follow the same 6-step process. This strict adherence to our standard procedures no matter how big or small the task ensures a quality, long-lasting job and your complete satisfaction. There are 3 steps that precede the painting and 2 that follow, with the final one being the most important: a review of the job by our crew chief with you. The crew chief will seek your comments throughout the process and will not move on to the next project before obtaining your written consent confirming that the job has been performed to your satisfaction.  In our experience, paint failure is most often caused by simply rushing the prep work. Because one of our top priorities is attention to detail, starting with the preparation of your surfaces, and because we use only top-of-the-line primer and paint products on your job, we are able to offer the longest guarantee in the industry: 3 years. And you'll have that guarantee in writing.

If you take a moment to read through some of the kind words our clients have written to us over the years, you will find that they often make special note of our painters' attention to detail. It is not a coincidence that this phrase comes up time and again. We provide rigorous training and active ongoing evaluations of our operators and painters, not only of their skills, but also of their work ethic, to ensure your complete satisfaction.
