About Us

Gallagher Painting is a locally owned and operated, small, family run business. We are husband and wife team, joined by professional, friendly crews who also feel like family. We have 30+ years experience in this industry, and strive to make the whole process as easy as possible for our customers.

Marc has been painting all his life, beginning his painting career as a teenager. He later worked for several local painting contractors across Nova Scotia before finally starting his own company in 2005.

Starting as just a one man show Gallagher Painting has grown to a team, that fluctuates in sized based on seasonal demand, who handle all types of interior and exterior painting jobs including:

  • Interior Walls, Ceilings and Trim work
  • Kitchen Cabinet spraying
  • Dry wall repairs and prep work
  • Siding, decks and exterior buildings

Marc has been painting for over 30 years, with a great amount of both practical and managerial experience. He is our resident spray finisher, and a master of his craft. Juanita will likely be your first point of contact, and is always available to book your estimate or answer any questions or concerns you may have.

We are here to work with, and not only for, our clients. We’ve had much experience working with designers and general contractors, as well as directly with homeowners. We also work closely with various paint reps to ensure you get the best product and price for your project. We can also offer colour consultations on our own. Our team is capable and skilled, and we are proud of their work and abilities.

Gallagher Painting has been in business for 17+ years. In the past 10 years, we’ve expanded to include our shop space. It houses our spray booth where most of our cabinetry painting is done, and allows us to focus on projects in a controlled environment while also minimizing disruption in your home. We look forward to meeting you, and from our family to yours, are grateful for the opportunity to work together.

Keeping Our Team Small = Quality over Quantity

While other painting companies choose a quantity over quality approach, we’ve deliberately kept our team small and take on a smaller amount of jobs in order to maintain higher quality work, and highest quality assurance for our customers.

A Quality Job, Done Right at a Competitive Price

We’ve built our business based on doing a great job every time. We don’t take shortcuts to make our price less expensive, and we always do the right prep work to your interior walls, ceilings or exterior surfaces to ensure that the job not only looks great but it lasts!

Marc says, “Our goal is never to be the least expensive option, our goal is to be priced competitively and do the job right the first time. No short cuts in the prep work and a quality finished product means our customers are happy and aren’t calling us back”.
