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From start to finish, the renovation of a High rise where the main focus is the removal of the outdated-commercial grade wallpaper can be a daunting task and it is not something that every company can or is willing to do.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