I hired Classic Paint and Construction to remove the stipple ceiling in my recently purchased 1 bedroom condo and was thrilled with the service and results provided by Keshna. As a retired paint contractor I have known and trusted Keshna's work for a few years and was quick to contact him for this type of specialized work. He has the skill and proper equipment needed to tackle what is normally a labour intensive and dusty job. He provided a prompt quote and was able to work around my other contractor timelines.
The removal and skim-coating of the ceilings were top notch professional with attention to cleanliness and timely completion - max 3 days and that included removal, skimming, priming plus 2 coats. He repaired all the ceiling and wall holes (large and small) made by my contractors ensuring a professional repair and smooth finished product. Although the condo was empty Keshna was very respectful of my unit and neighbours.
I was so impressed with his efficiency and my results that I hired him again to complete the skim-coating and priming of my closets and kitchen walls; a job I just didn't get around to completing myself. I would not hesitate to recommend Keshna Spalding and his company.
WOW, thank you so very much for the opportunity Leesa, your review really moved me!
Great communication via email. He would always respond within hrs.
Attention to detail! Lovely work.
Focuses on cleanliness and minimizing dust
Has integrity - when we saw an imperfection.... he came back within a day to fix it.
Keshna Spalding is a true professional in every way I could describe. His workmanship was impeccable, fast, courteous, on time, delivered exactly as promised.
I fully recommend Classic Painting and Construction.
Keshna Spalding did an amazing job! He is talented, polite, punctual, courteous, focused, timely could not have been a better experience for us. I highly recommend him.
- Plastic off furniture’s, walls and cover flooring with drop sheet.

- Skim coat entire ceiling with drywall compound, sand, prime and prime-check.
- Leave project areas clean as found.
Wonderful experience all the way!
My husband is usually a good handy man when it comes to doing jobs around the house so we decided it would be a good idea if he tried removing the stipple ceiling himself.
This is a lengthy review but I wish someone would have shared this info with me.
We are in the process of renovating our foyer, living and dining room. We decided we wanted to remove the ugly stipple ceiling and install recessed lighting. My husband is pretty handy so he always does the work himself and is successful at it. So, we decided to educate ourselves on how to remove a stipple ceiling. Spent many long hours at reading and watching videos on the internet and chose the method of spraying with a certain expensive product which cost us a total of $300 plus taxes. My husband spent 3 full 12 hours a day to remove 400 sqf of stipple… our ceiling was painted a few times and this made the job a lot more complicated … not a positive experience at all!!!
We decided to hire a tradesman to do the job and unfortunately it was a negative experience even before he started so we had to cancel the job. Saw a Stipple Removing Sign in my local Chapel Hill South neighborhood and decided to give them a call. From the moment I started talking with the owner Keshna Spalding it was all uphill from there….
This is our experience with this wonderful professional gentleman:
Tues 4:15pm: Came to our home to provide us with a quote for the job
Tues evening: Sent us a contract via email
Wed am: Had recessed lighting installed by my electrician
Wed 3:00pm: Keshna started his job and worked into the evening
Thurs pm: the job is done and here I am writing this review
We were lucky that Keshna happened to be available at that moment.
I’ve attached photos of before and after primed ceiling. (not painted yet)
We couldn’t be happier with our dealings with Keshna Spalding. He was professional, personable and delivered on his promises. He even completed removal of the stipple earlier than estimated. Residual dust was absolutely minimal. I can’t stop looking at my beautiful flat ceilings!!
Krishna is professional, meticulous and a pleasure to work with an individual such as him that has integrity as his one of his main character quality. I would recommend him for his quality work attention to details (such as protecting everything to mitigate dust). He is punctual and very courteous .
We had the stipple ceilings removed in the entire house. Keshna completed the job in a timely manner. HIs workmanship was excellent.The work areas were cleaned at the end of each day and we had access to the entire house in the evenings. I highly recommend Keshna to anyone requiring this service.
We had a large crack in the ceiling of our sunroom where the drywall joined. Keshna from Classic Painting and Construction came through with a reasonable quote and the promise to get the job done quickly. He arrived on schedule, was extremely courteous, did a great job and left the place perfectly clean. I highly recommend Keshna.
We are very satisfied with the work Kessna did recently in repainting interior rooms in our home. He is a tireless worker and a rare craftsman who takes pride in his work. Very pleasant to deal with and also very flexible as we added on additional requests on the last day causing him to adjust his schedule. Always on time and costs quite reasonable. We will certainly use Classic Painting for future painting needs.
I liked the work done by Keshna Spalding of Cassic Painting last year so when we decided to make our house more attractive for our upcoming down-sizing we decided to use him again.
There were two visible water spots on living room ceiling from a long resolved plumbing problem. Keshna removed the stipple ceiling and left us with a flat ceiling with no flaws. It now reflects more light and makes the room brighter. The two hallways, stairwell and den were painted to our complete satisfaction. The work was done quickly at a reasonable price and the cleanup was thorough. We would happily recommend Classic Painting without reservation.
I had the ceilings updated (removal of stipple / repaint) in 2 rooms. Keshna was very quick to answer my request for a quote, and to perform the actual work. The end result is great, my wife and I are both very happy with the result. One room was standard stipple, whereas the other required more work to cover.
The only thing that could been improved (a minor inconvenience) would be to better close off one of the rooms - as it resulted in some drywall dust in an adjacent room.
I would definitely recommend Keshna for anyone looking to get rid of stipple and update ceilings!
We needed three separate drywall areas repaired and painted as well as a family room ceiling that needed painting.
I called Keshna to see if he would be interested and he came over the next day to see what was needed and sent me an estimate the following day indicating he could do the work a week later.
He arrived as he said he would and finished the work in the same day (would have taken me 2-3 days). Ceiling is brand new and no one can see where the drywall was damaged. Keshna cleaned up, was great to have in the house and really worked hard - well worth the money. We would hire him again for drywall or painting needs.
Thank you very much Dave for the opportunity and review!
I would like to give a shout out to Keshna Spalding of Classic Painting. I hired him to remove the stipple ceiling in our living room, repair, prime, and paint the ceiling and the walls (a different colour). I couldn't have been happier with the job he did! Keshna was prompt, friendly, courteous, and professional. His rate was quite reasonable and he took great care in keeping the job site clean. I would not hesitate to use his services again.
I am a US based absentee landlord who had to urgently complete drywall repair at my place in Nepean. I had found Classic Painting and Construction based on reviews online and contacted Kensha to check if he would be interested in taking up the work. Kensha was prompt in returning my call and based on photos of the drywall also provided a very competitive estimate right away. Upon confirming him for the repairs he owned every step from contacting the tenant to scheduling the repairs to sending photos of finished work. I am very impressed by his professionalism and quality of work and have no hesitation recommending him for any drywall repairs.
Keshna Spalding, Project Manager of this company provided the above service in an exceptional manner. He restored the hole in my ceiling so that you would never know anything had been done to it. He was also the lowest bidder of three estimates I had and was extremely professional in which he provided the service.
Am extremely pleased with the work that Keshna did for us in our home in Beechwood Village. We were initially hesitant to have the ceiling stipple removed, because of the anticipated mess and dust. In end though, the mess was minimal and well worth the expense - the place looks like brand new construction and is now completely updated. It looks young and fresh here now. We are very satisfied with the work - Keshna was patient with us and gave us his honest opinion with respect to paint colours and application. He was professional, courteous and the quality of his work was top-rate. He finished the work one day ahead of schedule and left the place immaculate. We are having him back to do more work on our upper level here - that should tell you just how satisfied we were with Keshna's work.
Keshna painted our main floor, second floor, and three bathrooms. He did an excellent job only requiring the tiniest of touch ups here and there. He was kind, professional, and cleaned up after every job. He was fast and efficient and I appreciated that he made the most of his day and finished around 3 pm each time. I would highly recommend Keshna to anyone looking to do a quality paint job!
Keshna responded super quick which worked well for me since I needed repairs done as soon as possible. Always ponctual, estimate was accurate, he was very cummunicative and made sure to explain the work.
Cleaned up, no mess, fantastic job. We were ecstatic to have someone on our side for the work. Definitely recommend!
I had a hole repaired in the ceiling of my master bedroom, the stipple was removed and the ceiling and room was painted. Mr. Spalding was the only contractor to tell me that all the work would be done in 2 days and he was true to his word. The room turned out great and there was not even a mess to deal with. I would highly recommend Mr. Spalding to anyone and I will definitely be using his services again in the future. Thanks again for the great work.
Had Keshna come in and remove glued stipple from the ceiling. He was communicative, courteous and well priced. Appreciated the fact he was certified, insured and took accountability for his work. After he finished the job and left, we discovered some deficiencies and called him back to fix it. He was responsive and came back at his earliest convenience to check and schedule a time to redo the work. He came back again within an acceptable timeframe and completed the job to our satisfaction. I would recommend him.
Very quick and clean. After 24 hours, I tried looking for mistakes and what not, but could not find any. I like the work ethic and speed at which the job was done. Great care to all my furnishings, railings and stairs with various covers.
Highly recommended. We had some water damage in the ceiling of our mudroom. Keshna came in and did an awesome job to repair the ceiling and to remove the stipple. The equipment he used was pretty well dust free. He was professional, clean and a perfectionist. Ceiling is as good as new and looks great. We will have him do future work for us this fall.
Keshna painted my whole house. He was professional, on time and did a great job. His pride in his work shows through. I would recommend Keshna without hesitation and intend on using his services every time I need a painter.
I had been looking to remove my stipple ceiling to just clean white new looking ceiling for a while. I asked around & the more I asked the more scared I got, apparently the process could be a very dirty one. My cousin had done it & she had to change her whole floor because of water damage as they had used water to scrape off the stipples instead of using appropriate equipment. Some guys still use that method but it’s very messy. Keshna, came in & assured me that he had good equipment that would simply scrape off the stipples & he would cover everything on the floor to protect them from dust. He did exactly that!! I didn’t even need to lay a finger or move anything, my furniture was safe from dust & damage under the plastic covers he taped to all the walls! He worked very clean & efficient! I didn’t even feel that I was getting work done at my house! I had done some renovations the year before with another company & I didn’t even know these covers existed because my house was full of dust afterwards & they had damaged the patio door, lights & many little things in the house. I wish I had known Keshna then. He also gave me tips on some other projects I wanted done in the house with patience & a smile. I was lucky to have found his company & I will for sure contact him again for more work.
I was very impressed and pleased with the quality of work. There was very little mess and Keshna explained the whole process thoroughly. He provided all the necessary insurance documents prior to commencing work and was very professional and a pleasure to deal with. I had an issue with one area, and it was dealt with very quickly.
Great company. Clear estimate. Process and timetable explained. Excellent finish. Total clean-up afterwards. Very personable and professional.
Truly money very well spent. Keshna provided us with Stiple removal and painting for our home. We were extremely impressed at his very detailed and accurate quote and felt he was extremely well priced. On the first day he arrived on time as discussed and with all of the necessary equipment. He set up and worked for two very long days. However the work was done perfectly and without any faults. He is very attentive and listended to our needs and ensured they were met. We are already booking him for a second visit this Fall to repaint the entire upstairs.
We differently recommend classic paint and construction company. The service is over the top. The guy contacted me right after I submitted the request. Was fast is replaying and gave me a quote by providing only pic through messages. The price was so reasonable and the work he did worth more.
He finished a big paint job at the house within couple hours with ZERO mess. He left the house the way it is when walked it, not one drop of paint of floor.
Need an excellent job and great result, hire him.
We weren’t sure what to expect, however we were pleasantly surprised. Keshna was extremely professional. Responded to our request in a timely manner, was punctual and very polite.
He fixed our issue with no hesitation, kept the area as clean as possible and it looks great.
100% we would contact Keshna again for any future contracting needs.
Keshna of Classic Painting and Constructions gets top marks in all aspects of the work done at our home. His prompt and to the point; yet personable e-mail & telephone responses to enquiries, his very fair quotation; relative to others I obtained, along with assurances that he could start within a week and complete the job in one day with little to no preparation required on my part, convinced me to hire him. These, combined with punctuality, efficiency and tidiness of work prompt me to highly recommend Keshna and Classic Painting. He was in and out in one day leaving no evidence that he was here... other than a flawless new kitchen ceiling!
Keshna was absolutely amazing to deal with from the beginning. Very easy to talk to and his level of detail in explaining how he was going to do the job and executing it was awesome! Very happy with his services and will definitely refer friends and family to him.
Keshna came highly recommended, and we were not disappointed! Keshna was very responsive when we reached out for a quote, and his rate was reasonable. More importantly, the finished product was of very high quality. Keshan's attention to detail is obvious, as is his care to keep work areas clean and tidy. We will employ Keshna in the future, should the need arise.
Thank you so very much for the opportunity Nicolas.
Excellent job! Very professional, on time and amazing how quick and efficient Keshna was. Left in the morning for work and came back to My kitchen,living room, dining room, entrance and powder transformed in one day. Love it!
Thank you and looking forward to having you back to complete the upstairs soon.
The owner was quick to respond to my request for quote and timely about arranging a visit to quote the work. He provided a detailed pricing breakdown and explanation on the spot. He was available to do the job quickly and the work was completed on time and on budget.
Thanks once again for the opportunity Andrew, it was a pleasure doing business with you, and we're glad we were able to complete your project in a timely manner.
I had the pleasure of doing business with Keshna Spalding at Classic Painting and Construction. I contracted him for a ceiling repair in the Dining Room following a number of leaks from the upstairs washroom.
The ceiling had an area cut out, which he needed to close and refinish as well as numerous yellow stains from the leaks. It was a stipple ceiling which continued into the front entrance and living room, further complicating the repair.
Not wanting to spend an exorbitant amount of money refinishing the whole large area, Keshna suggested he repair the problem areas and simply paint over the DR, entrance and LR ceiling making the difference in colour less noticeable.
He did a great job, was very professional and great to work with. I would definitely recommend his services and plan on using him for future work on our home.
Thank you so very much Michele for the opportunity.
We brought in Keshna to fix a not so great job on the ceiling in our dining room done by another company. He fixed all the imperfections and made our ceiling seamless. He was very professional, quick and tidy and we are very happy with the results.
Thank you so very much Daria, for the opportunity and if you have any furture projects, please don't hesitate to contact us!
We had been looking for someone to do this job for us for 2 years when we finally stumbled upon Keshna and what a pleasure it turned out to be! He was professional, courteous and extremely proficient in the removal and refinishing of the ceilings. Our project was our entire main living area and he was in and out in two days with little to no disruption/mess. We had heard horror stories from others who have undergone this exercise but I can assure you that this is not the case with this gentleman and would highly recommend Keshna for anyone looking to remove/refinish their stipple ceilings.
Oh and we are not done yet, as a result of our satisfaction with his work, we have Keshna coming back to paint these areas next week and I know already the results will meet or exceed our expectations.
Keshna removed the stipple/popcorn from our master bedroom cathedral ceiling and our dining room ceiling, over 800 square feet. The thing to know is that often the original builders use the stipple to hide imperfections in the drywall taping and mudding. Keshna not only removes the stipple with a nearly dust free process, but he also skim coats and primes the ceiling to address any underlying imperfections and then applied two coats of paint. It looks awesome. The rooms are brighter and cleaner looking. Keshna was polite, courteous, very professional, cleaned up the work site properly, arrived on time and completed the job in exactly the planned time…and most importantly delivered exactly what he promised, a high quality job. I highly recommend Keshna!
Thanks once again for the opportunity Steve, we really appreciate it!
Keshna did an excellent job on our basement room. He answered any questions we had in a very professional manner. We would recommend to our friends and anyone else who wants a job well done.
Great job Keshna
Thanks once again for the opportunity Brian!
We had the pleasure of meeting Keshna on a Thursday, and the work we needed done was completed by Saturday afternoon. Keshna’s work was superior. We were so pleased with the final result. He arrived on time and was extremely tidy in the after cleanup. I would not hesitate to recommend his work to anyone.
Thanks once again for the opportunity April!
We had been looking for popcorn ceiling removal and we had found Classic Painting and Construction in Ottawa area.
Very professional and organized company led by Keshna. We are very happy with the service and I will recommend Keshna to my friends and family for future service.
Thank you Keshna job very well done.
Thanks once again for the opportunity Adam, please don't hesitate to contact us, if the need for our service arise.
I have had popcorn ceilings removed in the past always a very dusty, laborious job that seems to take forever. I am happy to say that changed with this sand/vac system of Keshna's. A 1200 square FT of ceiling removed, skim coated, primed and painted in far less time than the old way would have taken just to remove! I know! Thanks for the great job Keshna see you at the next house. Done ahead of time on budget and on spec.
Thanks very much for the opportunity Douglas, we look forward to the next project!
We called Classic Painting and Construction to help us repair holes in our walls after our pipes froze in our laundry room. Keshna called us back promptly and even offered to work on New Year's Day! He is an absolute miracle worker. Our ceiling and walls look brand new. Keshna is professional, courteous and conscientious in every detail of his work. We plan to hire him again for our garage repairs and would recommend him 100% to anyone.
Frank & Kim
Thanks once again for the opportunity, we forward to your garage project in the spring-:)!
Thank you Keshna
Keshna responded to my quote request within 1 day and was able to complete the work in the time frame needed. Quote was fair and his service was professional, friendly and clean. My laundry room and bathroom ceiling have Been repaired and you cannot see any of the joint lines. Very happy with Keshna's service and would get him again.
Thanks once again for the opportunity Kerry and please don't hesitate to contact us, if the need arise for further project!
Kesh never ceases to impress when it comes to doing my home renovations. He took my outdated main bathroom and transformed it into something spectacular. I will definitely continue to have him do more updates around my town home.
I hired Classic Painting and Construction to remove the stipple ceiling in the living room and dining room and repair the ceiling and walls where a wall was taken out.
Keshna did excellent work. The ceiling and the walls are smooth and it is impossible to see where the repairs were done.The painting is perfect. Nothing to clean after the work is done.
Keshna showed up on time and finished the work on schedule.
I would hire him again anytime.
I was impressed from the moment I engaged Classis Painting and Construction. They accurately assessed the work that needed to be done and they provided a very detailed proposal.
The job entailed making some repairs to our main floor ceiling, removing all the stipple, smoothing, priming and then painting it. The work was done within the time frame allocated.
I would highly recommend Classic Painting and Construction for their professionalism, service, and value for money.
We hired Keshna from Classic Painting and Construction to do the stipple ceiling removal and painting in your new home (in total an area of 1200 sq-ft). Keshna by far exceeded our expectations in quality of his work, the total cost, and the timeliness of completion - all in less than 3 days! I would highly recommend Classic Painting and Construction for all of your renovation needs.
Keshna was great, professional and informative! He advised us of our best options and made sure we felt secure and ion good hands! the finished job was above Aden beyond what we hoped for and he's our guy to finish the room and paint the walls to complete the experience in the master bedroom. 1-day in and out!
Keshna from Classic Painting and Construction is a highly professional and extremely skilled and talented individual who does great work!!!
He not only impressed us with his ability to get the job done, but with his promptness and adherence to our agreed upon scheduled time to meet and length of time to complete the job. He responded quickly to my request for an estimate and arrived the next day on our pre-arranged time to meet, right on the dot! We agreed on a time and date for the work to take place within a few days. He arrived on time and completed all the work as promised. In fact he exceeded our expectations. He removed all of the stipple without a hint of dust, repaired and painted the ceiling...all in one day! His work was meticulous and he was extremely tidy and extremely polite. I would recommend him without hesitation and will use him if the need arises again, in fact I have already recommended him to my friends and family.
Thank you Keshna!!!
The job was a professional from the quote right to the final coat of paint. They went above and beyond to ensure a perfect finish. They delivered on time, on price (very reasonable) and a job well done!
It was a pleasure working with Keshna. He arrived the on time to look at the scope of work and provided an estimate that evening. He planned on beginning work the next morning but called to inform me that he had a conflict; it was not a problem since the weather would not have allowed him to do the work anyway. Keshna arrived in the morning at the agreed upon time and completed the work in his estimated time frame.
The quality of his work was excellent and I look forward to having him work on future projects.
Thanks for the opportunity Casey. We look forward to future projects.
I am thrilled with the service and quality I experienced with "Classic Painting." My hallways look refreshed and my boys' are thrilled with their new blue room. Keshna used high-quality paint and has excellent attention to detail and customer service skills. Sometimes a new coat of paint is all you need to breathe new life into your home! Very happy with the final product - and my family is too!
We hired classic painting because of our neighbours. Basically, Keshna did a lot of good work in our backyard staining the deck and we found out that the price was also right. He takes care of everything, buy the stain and all the required material and will make sure there's no stain anywhere so he will cover everything and he even help with putting things away from the deck and will help us again put everything back in place. He is a very friendly and understanding gentleman, very reliable and flexible, we will definitely not hesitate to hire him again.
Mr Spalding did general painting in my townhome. I found him to be very professional, punctual, reliable and affordable. He provided stellar quality work at a reasonable price and left my home neat and tidy. I would definitely recommend him to my family and friends.
