Painting Services in Toronto and Durham Region

Some people choose their professions based on market trends, others on the people they work with. But for Kyle Smallegange, founder of Alpha Pro Painting, what led him to professional painting was his entrepreneurial spirit. “I’ve worked for a lot of different people in a lot of different roles,” Kyle says. “But what I like most about my job now is that I’m my own boss.”

Officially opened in 2013, Kyle had already been a painter on-and-off for years. Originally, he started as a way to help his family and friends, but soon more people were seeking out his services. “Painting used to be a weekend thing for me,”Kyle recalls. “It’s something I’m good at, so I kept getting more and more jobs until I had to take it on full-time. Since then, we’ve only gotten bigger.”

Now, his painting expertise ranges from residential properties to commercial buildings and new housing developments in the Toronto and Durham Region.

I’m very fair. When I send the customer a quote, that’s what they’ll pay. We do honest work and are often cheaper than our competitors. - Kyle Smallegange, founder and painter

So what separates Kyle and Alpha Pro Painting from his competitors? Kyle believes it’s a combination of honesty and affordability. “I’m very fair. When I send the customer a quote, that’s what they’ll pay,” Kyle says, “and my quotes are often different from other painters. In fact, I always recommend people get multiple estimates so they can see the difference in my pricing. But we do honest work and are often cheaper than our competitors.”

Kyle begins every job with an on-site visit so he can see what’s expected. “I always see what the customer wants in person,” he says. “That way, I can get to know the people and their expectations. I can look them in the eye. Then I go off and figure out my estimate.” And since Kyle has a long and varied career in professional painting, he can make suggestions for colours and tones that his customers may not even think of. “I try to offer suggestions for what people can do with their painting projects,” he notes. “It’s usually well received, but it’s their decision at the end of the day and it usually works out great.”

Professional Commercial and Residential Painting

Alpha Pro Painting offers professional, high quality and clean interior and exterior painting for residential and commercial buildings. Kyle hopes to expand his business eventually, both in the types of places he can paint and the number of crew members. “The plan right now is to expand out, get a few crews going, so we can paint more people’s homes,” Kyle says. “It’s something I enjoy doing and people seem to like it.”
