In 2017 the ownership team of Mosaic Home Services was approached by Dean Mergel, a passionate professional with years of experience and knowledge in the painting industry.
For years Dean was the General Manager of the Edmonton operation of Five Star Painting, a company based in Calgary focused on residential painting services. Dean dreamed of a day where we would own his own business, but didn’t want to do it all alone. He approached the team at Mosaic with a proposal to start Colour Envy Painting, a business based in Edmonton focused on providing a service that’s second to none in the residential and commercial painting industry. The partners at Mosaic Home Services agreed to help him build his business and mentor him along the journey.
Over the following years Dean learned an incredible amount about running a business, the painting industry, client relations, and most importantly, what not to do when growing a company. Colour Envy Painting had plenty of bumps and bruises along the way, as does any startup business; however, their reliant ownership team fought through thick and thin to develop a brand in unique markets like multi-family property management, custom home building, and graffiti removal and prevention.
Colour Envy Painting is still led by Dean, who has learned first hand what it takes to build a successful business in a turbulent Alberta economy. This local painting company now takes aim at following in the footsteps of Five Star Holiday Decor, franchising their model across the country.
The team at Colour Envy Painting consists of dedicated project managers, professional painters, and a certified interior designer. They help homeowners and contractors freshen up their spaces, interior or exterior, with the highest quality products and painting services.
The Colour Envy team is always on time, on budget, and committed to exceeding your expectations. Avoid the mess, and save your time by calling Colour Envy Painting for your next home improvement painting project.

Screen Savers Plus was founded in 2007 by Arthur Boutin. An entrepreneur at heart, Arthur was going to school to complete his Education degree, but when the summer rolled around he found himself with some extra time on his hands to save up for the next semester. With the motivation to get his name out there, he printed signs that read “I FIX SCREENS CALL 780-818-6911” and put dozens up on public roadways, parks, parking lots, and everywhere else he could. After receiving a multitude of immediate phone calls, some of which were from bylaw officers, Arthur knew he had a viable business model.
Once he graduated in 2010 Arthur decided to dive full force into his growing business, offering different lines of retractable screen doors, awnings, window screen repair and replacement, and custom screen solutions. Working with residential clients and a number of property management firms, there was always a tenant in need who had broken their window or door screens. For years he built his business on his own, until 2016 when one of his longtime customers, Bill Knight, approached him with a proposal to partner and help grow his business.
From there Arthur and the Knight’s continued to develop the business model and expand operations across Northern Alberta, offering new and innovative products that are truly second to none in the industry. Today Screen Savers Plus is owned and operated by Mosaic Home Services and continues to grow at a fast pace. This team is committed to providing high quality products and services and looks forward to franchising their business model out to continue growing across Canada.
Screen Savers expands the living space of homeowners through 100% Canadian, high-quality screen door, window, and enclosure products. Their team offers a variety of choices from retractable screen doors and security screen doors to screen systems for large openings, patios, and decks.
Screen Savers also repairs and replaces damaged screen windows or doors for residential home owners and commercial property managers. Screen Savers helps you bring in the breeze by covering your windows doors, decks, and patios with state of the art screen systems that are custom fit for you. Their mission is to help homeowners enjoy the freshness of the outside within the safety of their home.

After running Screen Savers Plus for a number of years, Arthur Boutin founded Five Star Holiday Décor in Edmonton in 2010. Arthur needed to find a creative way to keep the lights on during the Winter when Screen Savers Plus’s main season was slow for the year.
He bought a franchise which supplied, installed, took down, stored, and maintained holiday décor for home and business owners. For years he delivered service to his customers that was second to none, and the phone rang off the hook. He secured public contracts from the Edmonton Valley Zoo and small private developers to light up their shopping centres for the holiday season. With growing popularity, the Christmas season quickly got out of control.
In 2016 Arthur partnered with Three Knights Investments, which added resources necessary to control the growth of the business, including dedicated inside sales, scheduling, and business development. Since that time, Five Star has grown to offer their services throughout Alberta, decorating high profile commercial sites like Rogers Place, Fort Edmonton Park, Broadmoor Park in Strathcona County, and over 70 other private commercial sites, along with 600+ homes annually.
In 2019 the Five Star ownership team bought out the master franchisor of the Five Star Holiday Décor system, and began franchising the model on their own. Their efforts have generated interest from across North America, presenting partnerships with major national brands that compliment the Christmas season. Their drive and desire to excel is progressing the Mosaic business model and goal of developing Canada’s largest home improvement franchise system.
The team at Five Star Holiday Décor understands how hectic the holiday season can be, that is why they make your home and business beautiful and bright by taking away one of the most annoying and dangerous hassles of the holiday season — Christmas light installation.
Five Star Holiday Décor is the only company in Alberta that will provide the following services: custom design consultation, supply commercial grade lights, custom fit installation, mid season maintenance, postseason take down, and off season storage of holiday lights for your home or business. Look for the quality of Five Star at the annual Edmonton Valley Zoo light displays, Broadmoor Park in Strathcona County, Rogers Place, The Fairmont Hotel MacDonald, or on local show homes, professional businesses, and restaurants throughout Edmonton all year.

The Cleaning Command was founded in 2006 by Canaidan Armed Forces veteran, Rob McLeod, and his son, Jordan McLeod.
Originally the two had started as a Chem-Dry franchise in the Edmonton area, but when the franchise system went under Rob and Jordan found themselves with plenty of industry knowledge, 2 vans, 3 carpet cleaning machines, and nothing better to do. They persevered and built a business focused on cleaning anything under your feet. Whether it was carpets, laminate, hardwood, tile, they had a cleaning product and system that was second to none for all of it. However, they struggled to find and maintain a steady flow of revenue.
In 2018 Rob and Jordan partnered with the team at Mosaic and together they tripled the size of their business in one year. They hired new staff, brought on new clients, and went through all the struggles that come with growing a business. In 2020 Rob retired, leaving the business to his son Jordan, who will continue to excel in delivering outstanding service to clients across the Edmonton area. While he won’t see his dad every day at the office anymore, Jordan isn’t alone – the team at Mosaic Home Services is there to support him every step of the way.
The Cleaning Command is Alberta’s cleaner and greener carpet cleaners. They help homeowners and businesses rid their carpets of virus, bacteria, and dirt with environmentally friendly products and expert technicians. They also offer business owners scheduled janitorial services, using only non-toxic environmentally-friendly products to keep their spaces clean and fresh for their customers and employees, and a variety of other custom cleaning services.

Everlast Vinyl Fencing was founded in 2013 by Arthur Boutin and his business partner Keith. Keith was a retired Edmonton Fire Services member who had plenty of experience building wood fences and decks and wanted to put his skills to use in a local business setting.
From 2013 to 2016 Arthur and Keith provided residential fence repair and replacement services primarily to single family homeowners, a few land developers, and property management firms in the capital region. The two took pride in their ability to supply a product that was second to none in the Edmonton fencing market and played an integral role in bringing Vinyl fencing into Edmonton.
In 2016 the Knight family partnered with Arthur and in 2018 founded Mosaic Home Services which delivers products and services to homeowners through a variety of home improvement related brands.
In 2016 Keith unfortunately passed leaving Arthur and his new partners with a massive hole in their hearts and their business. Together they struggled to rebuild the business without Keith, who was integral in ensuring that every customer was happy and that every fence was perfectly straight.
Through years of rebuilding, the Everlast Vinyl Fencing team has grown and has found a niche in providing fence replacement services primarily to multi-family property management companies and boards. Utilizing the infrastructure of Mosaic Home Services, the team at Everlast is able to provide not only a vinyl fence that is second to none but also an amazing service.
Through their detailed project management process, the Everlast team works with homeowners and property management boards to design fences that will beautify a property, increase its long-term value, and decrease maintenance for years to come.
Everlast Vinyl Fencing supplies and installs VEKA fencing products which are manufactured in North America and built to withstand Alberta’s frequent weather fluctuations. Every Everlast fence project, large or small, has a dedicated project manager who ensures that every client gets exactly what they were told and that every resident who is affected by replacement has someone to rely on to answer questions, correct deficiencies, and overcome the stress of a major renovation.
Over the long term Everlast Vinyl Fencing continues to plan on expanding their service offerings through multi family management companies and land developers as the popularity of vinyl fencing continues to increase in Edmonton and across Alberta. Anyone can install a fence, but not everyone can replace 7000 feet with over 100 residents all expecting a seamless construction experience. This is what Everlast strives to specialize in.

The story of Downright Demolition has a unique founding story in the sense that it follows the journey of one of their owners Penny McEwan.
Penny originally started her career in the demolition industry in 2000 with an organization called Woodland Demolition. For two years she had worked in the field until the organization was acquired by B&B Demolition. Shortly after Penny started to climb her career ladder where she moved up to the role of Tool Forman and worked her way to Site Supervisor. She had successfully fulfilled this role for seven years and had an extensive portfolio of projects to look after each year. With the knowledge that she gained from being in these roles, Penny moved into the role of Junior Estimator to Operations Manager and then General Manager.
In 2017 her career at B&B Demolition came to an end when the company was sold and the culture had changed. After trying a few other avenues, Penny realized that her passion was in the demolition industry and her and her husband decided to start their own demolition company with their youngest son Jamie McEwan.
Downright Demolition, established in 2018, became the newest brand partner of Mosaic Home Services in 2020. Since becoming a brand partner, Downright Demolition has expanded their service offerings in both their Alberta and British Columbia divisions.

They give home and business owners the opportunity to safely transform properties and protect the environment while they do so.
