Exterior Trim Painting in South Surrey

Exterior Trim Painting in South Surrey.

Drastic colour change for the trim of this South Surrey home. What seemed like the only house with black trim in the entire neighbourhood got a facelift with 3 coats of SuperPaint semigloss. Giving it a fresh new look with this “off-white” colour.

While darker trim paint gives the exterior of your home a very modern and sleek look it can also mean extra maintenance.
Darker colours tend to absorb/retain more heat, this added to the high moisture levels in Vancouver can mean a long term problem.

Wood splitting, bent fascia boards, flaking paint, are some of the most common problems Vancouver painters will face when working in darker coloured homes in Vancouver, and whilst this may not happen in the first few years, it may eventually if your property is not being properly maintained.

New Construction Interior and Exterior Painting in Richmond.

It says something when a client trusts in you his investment of just over 3 Million dollars.

For this client we had to paint his entire new house, from bare drywall to a magnificent, luxurious and decadent finish. Colour palette used for this job, white, CC-30 Oxford White to be more precise.

This minimalist undertake on the colour scheme has been a trend by interior designers in the past 2-3 years. This approach allows the designer and the home buyers to have a literal blank canvass to work with when it comes time to decorate.

Interior High Rise Renovation in Vancouver

Interior High Rise Renovation in Vancouver.

From start to finish, the renovation of a High rise where the main focus is the removal of the outdated-commercial grade wallpaper can be a daunting task and it is not something that every company can or is willing to do.

The wallpaper removal in this specific location proved to be bit more difficult than anticipated, that is why we opted for only pulling (very carefully) the wallpaper without glue removers and/or steam to minimize the damage to the wall.

After pulling the wallpaper we proceeded to lightly and quickly sand the walls with a palm sander and priming all the walls with Cover Station, an oil-based primer that is one of the best out there (in my humble opinion) when you need a strong bonding primer.

After the oil primer we proceed to do a light floating (heavier than normal coat of drywall mud troweled as smoothly as possible) with “CertainTeed lite finish drywall compound”, the next step is to lightly sand all floated surfaces to remove all ridges, edges and other imperfections.

After the first sanding we lightly dust all the walls and then we apply what we like to call a “skim coat” (very light coat of drywall mud troweled in to a very smooth finish) again using “CertainTeed lite finish”. Doing things this way seems like more work, and it is more drywalling work, but it minimizes the amount of sanding that we have to do.

The next step is to do a primer coat on all walls with a latex based drywall primer (light tinted for better coverage of the top coat) called PVA (both affordable and gives a great smooth finish when sanded after 24 hours, this product by far outperforms the more expensive primers Sherwin Williams has). Then we leave it to dry for at least 24 hours before lightly sanding to lessen the amount of texture. Then we proceed to shine a light on the walls to expose any imperfections that may have been missed by the skim coat and to patch it with a fast-drying, light-weight patching compound called Drydex, sanding and spot priming any of this areas with the PVA primer.

Finishing the walls with two coats of Sherwin Williams SuperPaint on a Velvet finish for excellent coverage and durability.

Spray painting interior ceilings and walls with Duration matte, colour name is “On The Rocks SW7671”, from our friends at Sherwin Williams.

Duration is one of Sherwin Williams’ top two products, it is washable, scrubabble and mildew resistant even on a matte finish, making it a top choice when painting your kitchen and bathrooms.

Using a matte or a flat finish is a excellent choice specially when painting older homes or areas that may have imperfections. The lower sheen on this product will result in easier, slightly less noticeable touch ups.

Ceiling Flattening or Ceiling Polishing

Ceiling flattening or ceiling polishing is one of the most challenging tasks to do. From removing the texture or stipple to skimming the surface. If the texture is been painted the project turns more difficult to remove.
if you are doing a complete renovation in your home (removing floors or carpets) we recommend to start with the ceilings first and painting before you install the new floor. If not removing floors you have to protect floors and furniture with poly and/or cardboard.
Before you start removing texture, walls or floors, it is very important to test for asbestos.
If your property is older than 20 years, we strongly recommend to take a sample of the surface to a lab specialized in asbestos testing. If the results of the testing is positive you will have to hire a company specialized in asbestos abatement. They will clean the and seal the surface from asbestos, they will only leave it ready for skimming or flattening it.
If the surface is asbestos free, you can proceed to remove the texture or stipple.
• Make sure electricity is off to remove the light fixtures, this will make easy to scrape and skim
• Cover floor and furniture, block areas where you are not doing renovation, this will contain dust to the working area and cleaning will be easier
• Wet the ceiling; with a spray bottle, wet sections of the ceiling to scrape off the texture or stipple
• After removing texture, proceed to sand ceiling to make it smoother
• Start skimming the complete ceiling.
• You might have to skim the top corners where wall and ceiling meet. You might have to paint walls.
Once you are happy with the smoothness of the surface proceed to priming the surface then painting.

If you need help at any stage of your renovation from removing the stipple to the interior painting of your place give us a call 604 763 7995. We service Vancouver, Richmond, Burnaby, North and West Vancouver, all the Lower Mainland.

Painting

In fact, no matter how amazingly your house is built or how spacious your rooms are, if the color of the walls does not resonate with vividness, they will give you a dull and boring feel.


It is because of these reasons that we, at Argenta, take care of all the details while contributing fresh ideas which make your home’s appearance resonate welcoming warmth and spectacularly inviting.
