Types Of Paint FINISHES

Matte/Flat Paint: Matte or flat paint is used for a non-reflective and smooth finish. It’s perfect for drywall, ceilings, and new construction. It requires less coats and can be easily cleaned.

Eggshell Paint: One of the most popular types of paint, used for a soft and low sheen finish. Eggshell paint is great for hallways and living rooms and it does well to resist stains and scuffs.

Satin Paint: A great universal paint option for both indoor and outdoor use. Satin paint provides a soft sheen with a pearl-like finish. Most rooms throughout the house would work well with a satin paint.

Semi-Gloss Paint: A more reflective paint option that gives your room a sleek and shiny appearance which can brighten up a room. It works great for kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry rooms as it is highly moisture resistant. 

High-Gloss Paint: The most reflective type of paint to choose from. It’s a popular choice for cabinets, doors, and trim. High gloss paints require several coats but will offer exceptional glass-like results.

I can't recommend Mussa and team highly enough. From the professionalism in quoting and initial consultation, to the dedication and care taken while working on the property they exceeded all expectations. Pricing was very competitive, yet the service levels and attention to detail were unmatched. Work was completed on time, any mess cleared at end of day and with absolutely minimal disruption. Mussa will always be my first call for any exterior/interior work from here on in.

M&R painting is by far the best painting company in Ottawa. The painters are very meticulous, neat and organize. All furniture and items in the house were covered to not be damage. Mussa and team have very good customer service. Mussa came to visit and check on his teams work a couples times a day and always ensured we were happy with the work and service. This painting company is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED if you want your paint job done right!

Wow MR painting is incredible. They have the best prices and services in town! Totally professional and reliable. I collected a few quotes. Not only did they beat the prices of their competitors, they also provided unheard of service. I'm texting and calling them at 11pm and they are responding. We are so happy, we had the exterior of our house painted and we feel like we have a brand new house. That is saying alot in this market!!! They even saved my dog from running away!!!

I am extremely happy with Musa and his team at MR Painting. I had a rush job for them to do, and they were able to accommodate my urgent request in a timely and professional manner. The crew of 2 were on time, and worked hard an efficiently to deliver the exterior painting services in 1 day. Musa kept in constant contact with me and was available to answer any of my questions and concerns when asked. I highly recommend this company, and will be using them in the future for any painting needs I may have.Ryan
