Paint Cans


Before becoming a painter, I worked in a different industry, but  I always looked for things to paint.  I would paint the service trucks at my work and even paint the cars that I owned.   After work, I would continue painting and doing small renovations around the house.  

I feel a sense of accomplishment when I am painting and remodeling.  I'm fortunate to have found something that I have a natural talent for and love doing.   That is why I changed professions over twenty years ago and have been a painter ever since.  

As a professional painter, I have witnessed too many contractors rush through jobs.  They don't spend enough time consulting and getting to know their client's vision.  Then they hurry through the prep stage of the job, often leaving a mess behind, and the client gets left with a job that looks unfinished.  

Many people accept this low level of service and quality but don't feel good value for their investment.  

I listen carefully to my clients and ask the right questions during the complimentary consultation. With our imaginations, we work together and decide how best to remodel the space.


The majority of my success comes from the shared vision and how I carefully prep the area before the finishing touches.  I leave my clients feeling delighted and with a sense of pride at a job professionally finished.

Most of all, they consider me their friend.

Paint Buckets


I wanted to remodel the main floor of my house so I set out to find a contractor.  I decided to work with Duane from Kandu and from the start it was a very different experience.  It began with the consultation of color choices to then advising me on accents like crown mouldings and pot lights.  


The consultation was complimentary and was very thorough pointing out a lot of things I had not considered about remodeling my home.  His years of painting experience was very evident. 


When he started the work I noticed that he was very organized and kept a clean working space.  He wasn't rushed and what I appreciated most was that he paid attention to the small details always communicating with me as he was moving from one phase of the job to another.  I was more than satisfied when the job was finished. 


I would highly recommend Duane and Kandu Painting if you are looking for a professional experience and high-quality workmanship.

We decided to repaint our house but needed help with colours and labour. Duane was professional, answered any questions we had and was done on time and budget. We will definitely use his services again.

We needed to revitalize the studio we have and Duane was a great help selecting colours and type of paint to use in different areas that had different types of traffic.

He was very punctual and completed the job a great time, with little interruption to our business.

Highly recommend.

Excellent communication and a thorough job with a high level of attention to detail.


Very polite, dependable and honest. Would highly recommend Duane for any job in the future.


Duane takes great pride in his work. Thank you for the excellent job done at our house.


Our place was very challenging and Duane was able to make it all work out perfectly. It was very nice dealing with you and we will definitely look you up in the future!
