About Us

Painting is more than what we do. It’s who we are

Suzanna Geerlinks founded Refined Painting in 2005 and over the past twelve years the company has grown and evolved through work on countless high-profile painting projects in Guelph and the surrounding area.

Suzanna’s own painting experience goes back much further than 2005 —as a child “shop talk” was familiar conversation around the dinner table. Her parents were general contractors and they and other family members share a long history in construction. Suzanna’s love of working with her hands, an appreciation for fine craftsmanship and a sense of satisfaction for a job well done is inherent to her being – values formed at an early age. Ultimately, painting became her passion, as well as her career.

Suzanna built Refined Painting into one of the most trusted and experienced painting contracting companies in Guelph, Cambridge, Kitchener-Waterloo, and surrounding areas. Her carefully selected, talented and hardworking team of painters have decades of experience in the industry. Combined with Suzanna’s own experience in construction, aptitude for project management, and unwavering commitment to quality and professionalism, Refined Painting has quickly grown to become an industry leader in Guelph.
