Protective Measures While Painting

Protective Measures While Painting

Due to lifestyle restrictions we have faced in 2020, the daily activities of the average household have shifted in a major way. Instead of 40+ hours of working, commuting, practices and events, consumers have spent more time than ever inside and around their homes. This has resulted in many homeowners noticing the need for home repairs and enhancements, including painting!

Many homeowners might have tried their hand at DIY painting and are likely satisfied with the results. However, others might have come to the realization that the gift of time did not also grant them the talent. (Painting is a true skill that our crews hone from many years of experience!)

If you are in that situation, you might be asking yourself, “Is it okay to allow painters to work on the inside or outside of my home at this time?”

Five Star Painting® wants to reassure you, that while the decision is ultimately up to you and what is best for you and your family, we are doing everything in our power to keep you, your family and our crews safe and healthy during this time.


To give you peace of mind, we have implemented safety measures, such as:

Virtual estimates, upon request

• Limited leave behind items including emailed quotes

• Use of face masks, gloves, shoe covers, and door mats

• Frequent handwashing and/or hand sanitizing

• Following Center for Disease Control (CDC) and Health Canada guidelines, six-foot / two-metres in-person distancing

• Contactless payment options available


Before we enter your home, we will put down a door mat, put shoe covers on our feet, put gloves on our hands and wear a mask on our face. While we are in the home, we will keep a minimum of six feet between ourselves and anyone else in the home. To measure the walls, we use a laser measuring device and will avoid touching any walls or surfaces without a gloved hand.

We will present the estimate on our device, and if desired, we will provide you a printed copy. All estimates will be emailed to you.

Once hired to begin the work, you will be provided a Project Manager to streamline communication between you and the paint crews.


Providing an estimate for your exterior painting project will be much like our regular process, with the provisions of keeping six feet social distancing, wearing a mask and providing the option for an emailed-only quote. We do not need to enter your residence during the estimate or during the exterior painting process, to maintain safety for you, your family and our crews.


Five Star Painting wants to remind you that life is not on pause right now, rather we are adjusting and finding new ways to continue to deliver our customers the highest quality painting services that they have come to love and expect from us.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to your locally owned and operated Five Star Painting location for details on how they are ensuring your safety and delivering painting services, with peace of mind.
