Dwell finishing and painting

We started Dwell so that our neighbours and community members would have a reliable and professional contracting service they could count on. We wanted to create a company that stood out above all others to answer the call to any questions or challenges regarding coatings – a knowledge base that is so extensive but very few people have. Trusting people to come into your home or business is a big deal and we wanted to make sure Ottawa had a trustworthy option. Since starting almost 15 years ago, we’ve been growing thanks to our client referrals and call-backs.

  • Coatings and floor painting

Our favourite part of our work is the unique challenges that we are faced with each and every project we take on. It’s without fail, that every one of our projects offers new challenges for us to tackle. We continue to use innovative ways to deliver the high-standards our clients are used to when they hire Dwell. 

What makes us different from the other service providers is our attention to detail and our hands-on approach. We thrive on making each client’s experience one they will remember fondly.


Dwell recently painted my newly renovated Victorian home in downtown Ottawa. They were amazing! The quality of work was, dare I say, perfect. They were punctual, communicative, friendly, very knowledgeable and provided such confidence that I was able to focus on other things. I wouldn’t ever hire any other company. Very impressed.
