Creating one unique Ambiance after another… Yours could be next!


I have had the pleasure of working with Grant and his team on several occasions. They have done different projects for me from homes that are undergoing renovations to refreshing outdoor furniture. They are absolute professionals, courteous, respectful of the premises, on time and on budget. The work is always well done.



Caroll-Ann's Interiors Inc.

We recently renovated our home and needed a complete paint job. Ambiance Coatings came in with their polite and professional men and did a wonderful job. We had a small problem with matching some baseboards and the owner (Grant) actually came over personally and solved the problem with no questions asked. I would recommend Ambiance for any painting need.

Grant and his staff from Ambiance Coatings & Finishes exceeded my expectations for our painting project. They arrived on time, were diligent in their preparation of my walls and masterfully transformed my home with paint. I really value working with a company whose attention to detail is aligned with my own, and truly value and respect their care and attention to our space during the process.
I am eager to have them back to do our next painting project this fall and am grateful for such a positive experience.


Sherry Trentini


Ambiance Coatings and Finishes Inc has most definitely exceeded our expectations. Grant and his team have been a part of completing several renovation projects in our home over the past several years.
Grant and his team have always been very professional, punctual, dependable and very thorough and meticulous about each job they have completed for us. At the end of each day they always made sure their work was left tidy, which was greatly appreciated!
We were very excited about a new paint he introduced to us that has very unique textures and application process. The colours available are also stunning!
Grant was very helpful and provided large samples to help us choose the right colours for our home. He was always in constant communication with us, making sure we were 100% happy with the product and the progress.
We would highly recommend Ambiance Coating and Finishes to others, as we are very pleased with their work and the products they use! Thank you to Grant and his team!


Buffy Afseth


For me as a business owner, it is important that I have respectable, knowledgeable and reliable trades working on my client's homes. Grant is not only an outstanding person to work with, his work is impeccable. His attention to detail and quality is like nothing I have seen. His repairs leaving you asking; was there ever anything there to be fixed?

Owner & Interior Designer, Touch of Elegance Interiors Inc.

Grant's fantastic team did it again - this was our second project with them and they knocked it out of the park! We painted our entire 3200 sq ft house; wall and all trim; and it looks amazing. Grant helped with colour selection and our place looks totally fresh and current. The Ambiance Coatings team were very pleasant, caring, professional and clean AND they finished our 5-week project right on schedule which was a huge relief for us. We would happily use them again and recommend them to all our friends.


Joanna O'Brien


This is the second time we have used Grant's services and this is the second time he has exceeded our expectations. The quality of his work is outstanding and what is also appreciated is the site clean-up afterwards. Thank you Grant for your professionalism and taking such good care of our home.




I met Grant of Ambiance Coatings and Finishes Inc. in the spring of 2013. He was personable and knowledgeable on the phone as well as when I met him in person. Ambiance has completed multiple painting and straining contracts for Harrison Design Associates Inc. residential projects. Ambiance is organized, punctual, and performance on the job is commendable. The level of workmanship is of a custom home quality for both interior and exteriors. Ambiance is professional and respectful of Harrison Design's clients and our other trade professionals. We appreciate Ambiance as being part of our team.

Ambiance Coating and Finishes Inc. has been our client for last number of years. As a supplier of high end paints in Calgary's market, we come in contact with many painting contractors on annual basis. Grant and his team at Ambiance has certainly been a delight and pleasure to work with. Firstly, their professionalism does not stand on skills, experience and numerous projects they completed in the past; but much on an understanding of the ever-changing paint industry, finishes and design trends. Secondly, it is Grant's desire to learn, to adapt and to be a knowledgeable source for his clientele. Testing and trying new products, venturing into faux finishing lines and arriving at new application methodology has been Ambiance's successful pathway of matching client needs with spectacular results. Thirdly, Ambiance Coatings and Finishes Inc. has been a company that is always about excelling in all their endeavors. They take pride in quality of their work and work hard to live out to expectations in the marketplace. Regardless of project size or type, they are consistently on the top of their game, meeting and exceeding high standards of design professionals, as well as their clients. We wholeheartedly recommend Ambiance Coatings and Finishes Inc. for all your painting needs.


Walls Alive


We knew immediately that Grant was the one to do our painting. The quality of the work was excellent. Grant and his team are true professionals, very accommodating, punctual, knowledgeable, and very clean. Everything is covered and neat during painting and cleaned up at the end of the day. Our original oak bar was stripped and stained perfectly, better than we imagined.




This company is truly professional. From the moment we met Grant I knew we were in good hands. At our initial consult I had questions and Grant was so knowledgeable about what I required as a consumer. They day of the job they were on time, polite and courteous. They took the time to set up properly and were careful with our home and we appreciate that. They did a fabulous job on our walls and the baseboards don't need to be replaced now as they look like they are brand new. The final bill was exactly what Grant had quoted it would be. I would highly recommend Ambiance Coatings & Finishes Inc. as a painter of choice.


Ellen Russell


We have used a number of painters over the years and Ambiance is by far the best painting company we have contracted. They are very professional and reliable. Their quality of work and attention to detail is excellent.


Rob Drew


I had the opportunity to work with Grant and his team in the early summer of 2015. My initial meeting with Grant proved him to be a professional with a respectful approach and interest in grasping fully the scope of work intended.
Grant and his team completed the job we hired them to do on time and on budget. All of Ambiance Coatings staff members and partners I encountered were accommodating and willing to work around our other subcontractors and scheduling issues as they arose. The painting crew kept a very tidy job site which is very important to me.
I thoroughly enjoyed working with Grant and his team and look forward to our next project!

After deciding to add a feature wall to my new home, my interior designer directed me towards Grant at Ambiance Coatings & Finishes Inc. His professionalism impressed me from the first moment we met. While I had a look at the color selections and finishes, Grant unloaded numerous large samples from his vehicle. These samples provided me with an excellent idea of what I really wanted for my wall. He took his time, not rushing me into a decision. When work began, he was painstaking in his prep, making sure all surfaces were protected. I felt very comfortable leaving Grant to his work in my home, as I needed to come and go during the day. The lime paint specialty finish was definitely the right choice for my feature wall. It looks beautiful, and I have the added peace of mind knowing that it is an environmentally friendly product! Thanks Grant!!


Gayle Cartier


Grant and his team of professional painters did an outstanding job on the outside of our house. We had hail damage and our paint was faded. Ambiance spent the time to clean, repair, patch and seal everything before beginning of the job painting. We are extremely impressed with the result. The outside house looks updated and new again. The painters were all courteous and conscientious. Thank you for a job well done!


Jim and Janice


I highly recommend Grant and his team. They painted most of the interior of our home and were very careful with their prep work, professional and detailed with their workmanship, and very clear and concise to communicate with. It is hard to find contractors that are trustworthy and live up to your expectations, but Ambiance was always professional and a real pleasure to deal with. We are extremely happy with the end result!
