Our History

Harding’s Painting was founded in 1996 in Calgary , Alberta. Our founder Dalton Harding (left) realized that there was a need for a painting company that presented a professional image and delivered a consistently high quality end product.

The company adopted an early slogan of “Peace of Mind Solutions” to embody the belief of its licensees and painters of providing a worry-free service at a competitive price.

As the company has grown, the goals and ideals put in place by Dalton in 1996 are still very much evident.

The company grew under Dalton’s leadership over the years, taking on new licensees and expanding the range of services until 2011 when Dalton opened up ownership opportunities to its Licensee team. Dalton acted as Chairman of Harding’s during this transition period, allowing the management team to grow the company into the multi-service company it is today offering not only painting, but now include interior and exterior cleaning, ceiling texturing, renovations and handyman services. As the company continues to grow we reflect on and are grateful for his hard work, long hours, and commitment to providing service to our customers and opportunities to our managers and partners.

Harding’s may now be a full blown Improvement Company, but we continue to use Dalton’s good name to drive our business forward in Calgary and beyond.

Our Future

Chris & Leah Policarpo Franchise Partners – Kelowna

Rob Hilditch, President – Harding’s

The introduction of our President and Managing Partner in 2017, Rob Hilditch, has us growing into a franchise system. Our first location outside of  Alberta was in Painting and Handyman Services in Kelowna, BC in early 2019. Rob has deep connections to the Okanagan and likes to use Harding’s as an excuse to visit his parents and brother in Penticton and Kelowna. Rob also felt it was integral to our growth strategy to have a ‘local boy’ in the marketplace that could identify with its uniqueness as a market. Therefore, our Central Okanagan Licensee, Chris Policarpo and his partner also have deep connections with the Okanagan Valley. Chris’ partner is Winfield born and raised and works locally in Health Care while Chris takes on the day-to-day operations of the Harding’s Painting and Handyman Franchise.
