We hired Matt, originally, to repair an exterior door damaged by tenants. While we discussed that job, we asked if he was interested in the tough job of painting all of our wood cabinets in the kitchen. It’s a finicky and detailed job, yet he agreed immediately. As our modest renovations proceeded, other somewhat difficult jobs arose, such as re-staining a 14-foot mantle, again tenant damaged. Every time a job came up, big or small (like a multitude of paint touch-ups), he agreed to do it. That was wonderful for us.


All of the work he did was excellent. When he ran into unexpected problems, he found solutions for them. He was always here when he said he would be and we came to know that we could rely on him, not common for many construction contractors. He answered all of our questions honestly and in a timely manner.


Because we had several other contractors working here, and had trouble getting the correct supplies delivered, Matt had to work around a very fluid schedule (the schedule went out the window, after so many supply problems!). He never minded the “moving target” and was always positive about getting the job done.


His final price matched exactly what he quoted. He was very upfront with what the “extras” would cost. For the work done, we indeed got value for our money.


We are thrilled with the results and have added him to our “Dream Team”. After living in Canmore for over 17 years, we deal only with people that we trust will do an excellent job (electrical, plumbing, painting, cleaning etc.). Only the very good contractors are added to that team. They are the ones who never need a second chance!

We couldn't be happier with the work that Matt did in our home. From the initial talks about the project to the finished work, everything was done beautifully and professionally. We were given the guidance we needed when choosing colours, and communication was always clear and timely. The estimate was very fair and the timeline was kept on track. The high level of craftsmanship and integrity from this company is rare and we are already looking forward to the next project they will do in our home.

Matt has completed two jobs for us in the past year. First he painted the main level and high staircase walls of the interior of our home and second he just refinished a 40" diameter oak table top for us. From the first consultation on both jobs, Matt was on time, professional and accurate on time line to completion and what was quoted for the job was what was paid. We were more than pleased with the end results on both the walls and the table. If you want someone who says they will be there on a certain date and time, is reliable and dedicated to his craft; than Matt at Tier One Painting is the person for the job. We highly recommend Matt for any of your painting needs. Thanks for the outstanding finished jobs.

Matt and his crew from Tier 1 Painting were wonderful to work with.  They took great care with their painting and the place went from a rental disaster to a terrific home!  With any job, there are decisions to be made along the way and they were flexible and accommodating.  Matt kept in touch about what needed to be done next and they were finished right on time for move-in. 


I would recommend them unreservedly.  Good job!

I highly recommend Tier One Painting. The process couldn't have gone more smoothly. They did exactly what they said they would for exactly the price quoted, and they did it really well and with excellent communication along the way. They were incredibly flexible and popped by immediately whenever I had a question. They are very professional and they do great work. Thanks!!

Matt has completed two jobs for us which including painting difficult to reach places and doing drywall patchwork in our basement. Matt was easy to deal with and conducted himself in a professional manner at all times. For both jobs we received multiple quotes and Matt came in at or below the other bids. He did not take any shortcuts and it's evident in the finished product that he takes pride in his work. We will definitely look to Matt again should we need future projects completed.

Tier one did a terrific job with my townhouse:

- the quality of the work was excellent, with great customer service following up

- tier one provides a timely detailed quote of the job, delivered on-time and on-budget.

- Matt worked closely with me when we had a "colour crisis" - providing assistance and input 


I would absolutely recommend Tier One to anyone looking to paint their home.
