THE PLE DIFFERENCE:

THE SMOOTHEST OPERATION IN TOWN

WHAT PLE CLIENTS RELY ON US FOR
AND HOW WE DELIVER

A trusted partner with 30 years of experience on large and complex commercial painting projects

PLE Painting founders Jay Newell and Elliott McGregor owned and operated the most successful location of a national painting franchise for 15 years, prior to establishing PLE Painting. They’ve executed complex commercial painting projects throughout Vancouver, Burnaby, Richmond and the North Shore for companies like Kindred Construction, VGH Hospital Foundation, Nat Bailey Stadium, and more, and have worked with talented general contractors, service-oriented property managers, and conscientious strata councils to deliver quality painting services throughout Metro Vancouver. Their vision is one of community partnership in which we all have a duty to contribute to society, in whatever capacity we can, to make people’s lives better. It’s a vision that lies at the very core of PLE’s services—we paint with purpose.

Stellar project and timeline management that maximizes efficiency

Proper commercial painting project management requires a solid foundation, and that foundation is knowledge, and experience. When we’re asked to scope a project, we ask a lot of questions. We review your plans in detail. We conduct a site visit. Then we define the scope of work and chart the most efficient course. Our approach is to systematize and simplify. We establish a painting schedule and clearly define your expectations. We take the time to meet with the other tradespeople who will be on site and gather information about their schedule and needs. By understanding all aspects of the project, we’re able to eliminate inefficient delays and respond to changing needs more effectively.

The ability to adapt to project and scope changes, and to maximize uptime for businesses that are in operation during projects

We understand that things change. Timelines and working hours can be adjusted to accommodate your business operations or the work of other tradespeople. A curve ball may be thrown that requires the original specifications to be modified. No problem. In fact, when scoping commercial painting projects, flexibility is always built into our plan. The key is maintaining clear lines of communication. Every project has a site supervisor, what we call your “Site Super.” This proactive individual’s job is to understand your needs, be available, and respond to on-site changes as quickly and efficiently as possible. They’ll seek information about room and facility usage, work routines, meeting and deadline schedules and so forth in order to ensure minimal disruption to your operations.

A dedicated and accountable contact person to maintain clear communication

Your site supervisor, or “Site Super”, is your main point of contact on site. They directly coordinate the PLE commercial painting crew and are 100% dedicated to your project, overseeing on-site efficiency and ensuring things run smoothly and on schedule. From the get-go, we’ll be transparent about our operations. Your Site Super will provide regular updates. If something needs to be changed or shifted, you’ll know—in advance. If timelines need to be adjusted, the Site Super will show you the revised schedule—in advance. Our goal is to make sure you have absolute clarity. The Site Super’s job is to respond to your inquiries and to be proactive about keeping you up to date so that there are no surprises.

Project Managers are also hands-on and 100% dedicated to ensuring your project is efficiently completed. With extensive experience on projects both large and complex, they know how to effectively adapt and overcome any unexpected challenge that may affect yours. Project Managers are involved with your project from beginning to end, and coordinate PLE Site Supers and Painters to mitigate downtime when significant changes to scope and schedule are required.

A resource who can provide professional insight on developing project scope, timeline, budget and more

Our scoping process for commercial painting projects is highly detailed, but our project management know-how isn’t limited to painting. We have experience working on, managing, spec’ing and developing painting budgets for commercial projects that involve multiple trades. If you’re in need of some guidance, we can help you to assess the bigger picture. This can include discussing the assignments and schedules of other tradespeople on site, offering input on project timing and possible seasonal impacts, reviewing materials and making suggestions, and more. Before the project kicks off, we’ll sit down with you to discuss site preparation and painting pre-requirements, review best practices, and explain the stages of the project—who will be on site, doing what and when.

An impressive crew who takes pride in their work — highly trained, skilled, professional, well-spoken, and respectful

At PLE, painters aren’t short-term, disposable contractors. They’re talented career professionals and craftspeople with an in-demand skill set that can benefit others. As a business, we feel it’s our duty not only to elevate our community but to elevate those who work for us. We hire the best painters and we invest in their personal development training. Our respect for the trade of professional and commercial painting in Metro Vancouver has enabled us to attract individuals who similarly value the integrity of the work we do. Our crew understands that the visual quality of an office space or commercial environment affects the performance of that business, and therefore the lives of those it supports. Doing our best is both a duty and a matter of personal pride.

A cohesive crew that gets the job done so you can focus on yours

You’re busy. You’ve got this painting project and a million other things to oversee. If we’re constantly coming to you with questions, you can’t do your job, and that’s stressful. We get it. That’s why, through extensive scoping and consultation, we develop the most comprehensive plan possible. Our entire commercial painting crew, from Site Super to Painter, will know the plan and work together to anticipate your needs before you know you have them. That’s the way we operate. We’ll be in the right place at the right time. We’ll keep you informed. We’ll ask questions when we need to, but if we do our job right, you’ll barely even know we’re there.

Get a free cost estimate.

A collaborative crew that integrates well with other trades and makes a positive impression on site

A mandatory element of our project scoping and on-site management is coordination with other tradespeople. We get to know their point person on site and ensure that they know ours. We learn what they’re doing, what their schedule is, and what their needs are and how our schedules dovetail. This enables us to anticipate and manage busy periods, identify possible choke points, and address scheduling conflicts. For us, the trust and respect of our clients and fellow tradespeople has to be earned, and we do that by bringing quality, professionalism, and a cooperative attitude to site every day.

Commitment to high safety standards

Upholding safety standards isn’t just a legal obligation to us. It speaks to the very heart of whether or not we respect our painters and our clients. We do. Adhering to high safety standards ensures the safety of everyone on site, and eases liability concerns for our clients. Through carefully developed in-house trainings, our painters are thoroughly versed in on-site safety protocols and up-to-date WCB requirements. Safety standard training covers everything from proper cleaning, clearing and prepping of the site to best practices in work style, equipment uses and storage, accident management and site security. PLE Painting has full Workers’ Compensation Coverage, five million in Liability Insurance Coverage.

Quality equipment and materials

If a specialized piece of equipment is required for your commercial painting project, we’ll account for that in the scope and budget, but generally speaking we supply all of our own equipment. Our preference is to work with top-quality equipment and materials because it makes our job easier, faster, and, frankly, it ensures you get a much better finish. We offer consultation on what types of paints best suit your project, taking surface materials, light exposure, weather, and other factors (like your budget and specifications) into account. As more and more businesses and builders embrace eco-friendly practices, we’re happy to source materials that adhere to these standards. If your project requires the use of Green Seal Standard Paints, no problem, we’ll make it happen.

Follow-through to project clean-up and completion, every time

We paint with pride, and we always complete our work. You wouldn’t recommend us or add us to your bid list if we didn’t. Here’s how it works. When our work is done, you do a quality check. If there are deficiencies, we correct them. If anything appears to be out of scope, we’ll discuss it and find a solution. When you’re satisfied that the job is done, we’ll take care of any final instructions or coordination with the tradespeople still on site and perform a full clean-up. Nobody likes late admin, so we’ll conduct finance reconciliation and send you an invoice promptly. The best part is that we offer a two-year warranty on our work, so if something comes up six months down the road, don’t worry, we’ve got your back.

REVIEWS

My name is Sam Wainwright and I am the owner of Refine & Design Custom Homes & Renovations. Our construction team always uses PLE Painting for our large projects. They are professional, accountable & passionate about their quality of work. The owners Jay Newell & Elliott McGregor are a pleasure to work with. If you want a quality paint job for your residential home or commercial space, then I highly recommend PLE Painting.

Sam Wainwright

Owner – Refine & Design Custom Homes & Renovations

We are a general contracting company building custom homes, PLE Painting is one of our preferred painters for a few years now. Worked together on 7 (+\-) houses and they are the pros! Recommend hiring for any job. Very responsible and great communication, that goes a long way.

Dean Liu

Project Coordinator – Naikoon Contracting

We have had PLE Painting perform commercial interior and exterior work for 6 years running. I have always found PLE staff to be contentious and detail-oriented workers and have been consistently impressed with both the professionalism and knowledge base of the firm, their competitive pricing as well as the end result of the work itself.I would not hesitate to recommend PLE for any type of painting work you may require.

Kevin Zweep

Head of Buildings and Grounds – Collingwood Schools

They have painted several of my client’s residences. My clients have been very satisfied with their amazing results.

Ivan Quintana

Owner – Medina Living Designs

I hired Jay and his crew at PLE Painting, and they did an awesome job painting my place for me. They were in and out in 2.5 days and came back a couple of times hassle free to do a couple of touch ups and couldn’t have been happier with the job! I would recommend using them without any hesitation. They’re professional, provides a great paint job & really easy to work with.

wil seto

Owner and Clinical Director – Insync Physiotherapy

These guys take care and detail to the next level, every single step of the way. From the initial bid to discussing options, making changes, meeting with several of us on site and accommodating all our garden concerns, everything was done well, on schedule and with good humor. I have nothing but praise for Jay and the crew. Thank you from the Arniston!

John Taylor

Homeowner

Jay painted our office with absolute professionalism and speed! The job was well done an on-time.

Bob Wang

Owner – Legacy Bookkeeping/CTRL by Deloitte

I had a fantastic experience with PLE. On time, clean, excellent work & on budget. I would highly recommend to anyone, needing a professional painting service. You absolutely get what you pay for.

Nicole Burke

Director – Emelle’s Catering

PLE Painting exceeded my expectations when I had the exterior of my home painted this summer. The two painters were hard-working, punctual, and cleaned up the work space at the end of every day. They tried hard to minimize their impact on our outdoor living space. The final results are beautiful, and the price seemed good. I’d highly recommend PLE Painting in the future and would definitely have them back.

Shelley Hrdlitschka

Homeowner

We have recently used PLE Painting, to paint the outside of our building. We live in a heritage building renovated and divided in condos. The workers were pleasant, qualified, clean and finished the work on time. The crew was nice enough to assist other trades coming unprepared to fix the awnings. I do understand now what all the hype is about. thumbs up!

Sandrine Ramoisy

Independent Consultant – Arbonne

I would highly recommend PLE Painting. I have had very positive experiences working with Jay. I plan to continue to use his company for my future jobs. Chris, one of their foreman’s did a fantastic job on our last project. He kept me up to date and on schedule with constant communication. He even cleaned up after himself, which is very rare for substrates.

Sean Boyle

Project Manager – Kerr Construction

The PLE team did a great job for us. They were fast, efficient, clean and professional making it easy to get a tough job done. I’d recommend (and have) PLE Painting for any painting challenge.

Dean Robertson

Former Owner – 4th Utility

PLE did a great job on the interior and exterior of our building – they were professional, detailed and quick to respond to any requests and changes!

Darran Fernandez

Strata Member

The people at PLE are pros! We had them do two jobs for us on the same day and they absolutely nailed them both. We will most definitely be keeping them in our back pocket for any and all of our future painting needs!

J TC

Homeowner

PLE painted our new business and they did an absolutely amazing job. Their crew was fast, clean and very professional. Highly recommend.

Jeremy Martin

Owner – Loaded Athletics

Thanks Jay, Elliot, Chris and the team at PLE. You delivered a quality job, on time and on budget. A fresh interior paint job is like having a new house! A special thank you for being so careful about our pets, for whom the whole process was unavoidably stressful.

Krista Simon

Partner – Hammerberg and Co Lawyers

We had Jay and his team paint our offices in East Van. They did a spectacular job and provided the utmost in professional service. We couldn’t be happier with the end result. I would definitely hire them again.
