Neil Belenkie

We are one of the largest drywall and painting companies in British Columbia. We strive to provide excellent service at a fair price.

Tell us about yourself?

I’m a serial entrepreneur and have worked in almost every industry. I choose to work with great people instead of in specific industries, and I am presented with new opportunities to learn all the time.

If you could go back in time a year or two, what piece of advice would you give yourself?

Don’t stress about things that don’t matter in the bigger picture.

What problem does your business solve?

We focus on providing drywall and painting services in newly constructed buildings.

What is the inspiration behind your business?

Construction is not always about inspiration. Our founder identified an industry where he had experience and felt he could fill a gap. He was right.

What is your magic sauce?

We guarantee our prices, and we work through any construction challenges together with our customers. By providing both drywall and painting scopes, we also remove the challenges of transition responsibilities from one trade to the next.

What is the plan for the next 5 years? What do you want to achieve?

We will continue to grow one new customer at a time. We only work with people we’ve met and will not work with anyone who does not align with our values.

What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced so far?

We needed to rebuild our business from the ground up in 2021. COVID-19 exacerbated challenges we were already facing, and it forced us to improve every aspect of our business.
