I hired Charlie (like many here) based on reviews on this site to paint my new home - my wife and I are business professionals and simply not handy nor have the time in our busy schedules to tackle this kind of work. It all started out well, Charlie completed a walk through of our house, gave us a quote for the work (he claimed our builder butchered the paint job), and we agreed upon a time frame in which the work was to be completed. We wanted to ensure our home was painted before we moved in and thought it would be easier for him to complete the project without our furniture impeding his efforts. He said it would take approximately 5 days so we planned our movers 8 days after (just in case and to give him some buffer room should the project require more time than expected). In good faith, I paid him cash (mistake #1) for the initial 50% of his quotation - followed by further progress payments as the work unfolded. He showed up on time initially but the work took longer than expected - even though it was a brand new home we bought from a builder.
As we approached the 5 day deadline, we started hearing excuses as to possible delays - he insisted he wanted to make things "perfect". We obliged thinking it would be worth the added hassle to wait for a quality job vs. rushing him. We eventually had no choice but to move in along with our furniture - we noticed certain walls where the 2nd coat of paint was missing, some general sloppiness (areas missed, lines not straight, etc.) and he promised to come back to complete the job to our satisfaction - I felt bad and paid the remaining amount thinking he would keep his word (mistake #2).
Once we paid our final amount, he virtually disappeared (not picking up calls and return messages). It would take days to hear from him - when he did pick up, he offered a date & time to come back (I even took time off work to accommodate) but he would often not show up or come hours after the time he had committed. The remaining work took forever to complete (and it still not done) - he would show up without the necessary tools forcing us to have to re-schedule. Recently he stopped picking up calls and returning messages - as I had said earlier, I had either taken time off or left work early to accommodate the dates and times he said he could come just to be stood up time after time. Excuse after excuse after excuse - he really showed his true colours leaving 5% of the work that I now have to find another painter to complete (which is difficult because nobody wants such a small job).
He also asked me to write him a good review in exchange of him coming back to finish off the job we paid good money for - luckily I got tied up or I may have published a review that was not truly reflective of his quality of work and follow up.
For many of us, we rely on reviews to determine is a professional is worth hiring - letting someone in your home requires a lot of trust and general good faith. I felt so disappointed and mis-led - part of it is we simply didn't know any better. I was so thrilled to have hired Charlie initially - felt the reviews were accurate - just to be tricked and there is little to nothing I can do to get him to stick to his work and complete the job.
Overpromised and under delivered....I should have been more careful, stayed closer and checked his progress, and probably not agree to pay so much before the job was completed - hold back 10-15% to ensure he truly completes the work he had outlined!
I found Charlie & his crew professional, courteous & knowledgeable.
His price is reasonable & the work exact.
I highly recommend him.
Thanks Charlie for a work well done!
Before we write our review we want to let you know that this is the 2nd time we have used services provided by Angels Painting. Charlie painted our entire house in 2015 in Scarborough and this time we called him for painting our basement in Etobicoke.
Charlie painted our basement in - 427/Burnhamthorpe area. We are very pleased with the result.
A team of 3 people worked on our basement and finished the job in 1 full day. Charlie and his team value my time and have proven to be reliable and punctual. They showed up on the date we agreed and on time. This is important for anyone who lives in the Toronto area since we all live very busy lives.
The work done demonstrates close attention to detail. Appropriate amount of time was also allocated to prep and clean up. Courteous and friendly to deal with.
We would certainly recommend Charlie and his team to anyone looking for quality work with reasonable price.
All in all these are professional people and they know what they are doing.
Thanks Charlie and team for another job well done. We appreciate your work and your high level of service provided.
We will be sure to call upon you again in the future.

Thank you for a good review Sunny&Ruby. I was more than happy to help your project. Keep us in mind for your next project done at your place!
I chose Angels Painting because of the reviews. I am very happy that I did.
Charlie showed up every day on time. His work was professional and efficient. He finished when he said he would finish. He messaged me in a timely manner.
He did the work for the quoted price and it was exactly as I had expected. What more could you want?!
I can highly recommend Charlie and his team.
