Our Story

Abed Rawas

Owner & Master Painter

The first time I started painting was at the age of 16 when my uncle asked if I could help him paint his first new home after school hours. Turns out I had a real knack for the skill and people were asking him who he hired as they liked the work.

Since then I have been very interested in the construction industry, so I went on to get my education and graduated with a degree in Building Renovation Technology from George Brown that allowed me to combine my experience and skills with the proper knowledge and connections to start my painting business.

Abed and his team at First Class Painting were nothing but professional and completely trustworthy. They provided me a quote for the job and charged me exactly what was quoted. Their work was meticulous and completed on time. They were very thoughtful and respectful of my home. Thank you so much for the wonderful job.

Professional Grade Tools

When you receive considerably low cost quotes from other painting contractors be aware that they sometimes use “dollar store” tools which will result in poor application and they may even use poor quality materials that leave the finish looking below par. Worst case some contractors want to get their foot in the door with a low price and either increase their price halfway or run with your deposit.

First Class uses only professional grade tools and materials to ensure that your finish not only looks outstanding but is also durable and will hold the test of time to maintain the ‘just painted’ or ‘fresh look’ for years to come.

We used First Class Painting to paint our master bedroom. We were able to book an appointment within 24 hours and the job was done beautifully within 4-6hours of work. And this was during the December holiday period! The paint quality was excellent and the finish was flawless.
I wasn’t required to move any furniture and they brought large plastic coverings to protect items and carpet in the room as they had promised. I was impressed that the room was also vacuumed and dusted to give it that showroom finish. I would choose Abed and First Class Painting for any future work without hesitation!

What’s In The Can Man?

Believe it or not but some contractors either dilute the paint or use very cheap paint but pour them in premium cans to fool home owners. Why do they do this? because they are able to buy ‘remixed’ paint for a third of the price and you wont be able to tell until a few months down the road.

Rest assured First Class buys premium grade paints from trusted brands like Sherwin Williams and Benjamin Moore to name a few, we will also gladly show invoice of the brand new paints with labels from the manufacture so you know that you are getting the quality your paying for. We are also able to get professional grade paints that are not available for retail and only sold to professional painting contractors like ourselves.

Very happy with painting done by Abed. clean work and very professional. i would refer to family and friends. Thank you so much

Houston, We Have A Problem!

Some contractors may bid on a project and not outline the detail of providing 2 coats, when your halfway done with only 1 coat and a job that looks sloppy you will have many problems arise that will need your attention.

Avoid the headache, Painting requires 2 coats no matter what, an honest painter will tell you this up front and their bid will reflect this in their services. First Class always takes the initiative to analyze your home and accurately suggest what is needed in the proposal so you have a perfect finish.

First class painting are very committed, professional people, they did an amazing job painting 3 bedrooms in my house, they cleaned very well after finishing the job, also they were very careful with moving furniture.
