about home painters OTTAWA

the top residential home painting contractor in Ottawa area for over 30 years

Brian Young



Hi, I’m Brian Young: the owner and founder of Home Painters. How did our passion for painting homeowners’ dreams begin? Let me tell you!

It all started back in 1987, during my first year at York University. A friend of mine on campus recruited me to run a student painting business over the summer. I needed to pay my way through school, so I decided that I would give it my best shot.  What I thought was a temporary job turned out to be one of my greatest learning experiences! More importantly, I fell in love with changing clients’ lives by painting their homes. To me, watching the elated reactions of my clients when they saw how I transformed their home became somewhat addicting.

When I graduated in 1990, the job market wasn’t so hot. I decided to change my direction and continue my passion of changing homeowners’ lives through paint. That was the moment that Home Painters was born. 

The rest, as they say, is history. Since our humble beginnings, we have changed the lives of more than 15,000 satisfied homeowners through our award-winning painting services. Some of our more recent awards include:

  • HomeStars’ Best in Class Award (2017, 2018, 2019)
  • HomeStars’ Giving Back Award (2018)
  • Ranked on Canadian Business’ “Growth 500” list (2017, 2018, 2019)
  • Ranked as one of “Canada’s Top Growing Companies” by The Globe and Mail (2019)
  • Nominated for Ernst and Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year (2017)
  • Three Best Rated Winner (2016, 2019)
  • Infusionsoft’s Small Business ICON (2015)
  • Best of Houzz Award Winner (2014)
  • A+ rating as an accredited business with the Better Business Bureau since 1992

After working in the painting industry for three decades, I will admit that there is a lot of hard work and dedication necessary to be successful. There is no better satisfaction, however, than getting paid to change homeowners’ lives by enhancing their most prized possession – their home.  That is why Home Painters has been recognized as the best painting contractor in Ottawa for years.
