Inspection and Guarantee Program

APCA is the approved quality control association for the Inspection Program in Alberta. This Inspection Program was developed by the Master Painters Institute (MPI) in order to guarantee the use of quality products and proper procedures by qualified tradespeople. The paint contract may only be 5% of the total project cost but 85% of the finished product is judged on the first impression made by the painting and decorating.
