Interior Residential Painting in Vancouver.

The interior painting season is upon us, take advantage of the transition period to get your Home, apartment, condo, rental unit or office painted by the professionals at Argenta painting. Special offers and discounts when booking an interior job for the October and November!

For this apartment in the Vancouver West End we used a Dunn Edwards colour called "Swiss Coffee " for all the walls on SuperPaint Velvet and for the trims and doors on a semigloss for the ceilings we used our very own colour called "Argenta White".

Both the Homeowners and their realtor are very happy with how the apartment turned out, the light tone of the Swiss Coffee colour made their 800 square feet apartment look and feel much bigger and brighter.

"Very happy with the results. I hired Argenta Painting to paint the exterior of my heritage house and do some carpenter work to the stairs and exterior walls. They kept me updated on the progress of the work and constantly checked with me to make sure I was happy with what they were doing. I will definitely hire them again in the future."

Professional Carpentry on most of our Painting Projects this Year.

This painting season has been extremely busy for every painter and painting company in Vancouver and the Lower Mainland. It would seen like the non-stop construction of high rises, town house complexes and new houses is increasing the demand for quality painter all over Vancouver.

This season we have been fortunate enough to have lots and lots of exterior painting jobs thought out Vancouver and the Lower Mainland. One of the main reasons for the high demand of our services would seem to be the great reviews and referrals from previous customers who keep recommending us to their friends and family even after years of having worked with us.

Another part of our success would seem to be the fact that we offer professional carpentry and drywall services to compliment the painting side of our business. Giving Home Owners the chance to get professional quality and affordable carpentry services along with the painting helps them get the job done in a more reasonable timeline and eliminates the hassle of vetting a second or sometimes even third company (when needing all three trades, painting, drywall and carpentry).

We always manage to keep all of our costs down when doing extra carpentry or drywall jobs, even when done on a Time plus Materials basis. Always being upfront about the costs of materials and the time they take to complete.

What are you waiting for Vancouver? Call now to get your free painting estimate and to avoid the nuisance that is looking for, vetting and scheduling other trades.

Painting is all about the prep work Vancouver.
Improperly prepared surfaces are a common cause of paint failure in houses throughout Vancouver and the Lower Mainland
Prep work cover all aspects of making surfaces ready to be painted, such aspects include (not necessarily on that order); * Pressure washing * Scrapping * Caulking * Filling * Priming amongst others.

Masking is also a fundamental part of the prep work. Without prep work over spray would be all over your Windows, soffits, walls, ceilings, floora, etc.
Masking is basically covering all the areas not being painted to protect them from any drips, spills, over spray, etc.
The most common materials used for masking are; * Painters tape * Masking paper * Plastic sheets * Canvas drop sheets
Masking is not just covering stuff up (well, essentially it is) but it does require a bit of technique and experience but most of all it requires patience, lots and lots of patience. Improperly masked surfaces can lead to an expensive clean up bill or in some extreme cases replacement of the affected areas.

"We have a larger house that had not been painted in about 12 years. They 
were exceedingly professional in all their interactions with me. From 
providing a detailed and fair quote for the work to be done. Allowing me 
to add to the scope of the work mid project at my request at a still 
reasonable price without any attempt to gouge. The painters came on the 
days promised, were polite, courteous, kept the work place clean did a 
professional job and left my yard clean. Could not have asked for more. 
Highly recommend"

Are you ready to paint but have no idea what paint product to choose?

After having decided what rooms of your house need painting, which you actually have the time for and even more stressful what colours to use then you’re then faced with another big dilemma, what product should I use to paint the interior of my house with? Here are some recommendations from products from our friends at Sherwin Williams (I can offer some input for the products of other companies in future blogs if anyone needs).

A common thought from most Homeowners and DIY-ers in Vancouver is that all paint is created equal, that you should simply get the cheapest paint or the one that is in discount. This can sometimes be true specially when you are faced with special offers from paint stores in Vancouver and the Lower Mainland, this offers are most common during the summer months when everyone is in a crazed to have their Homes, bedrooms, decks, fences, etcetera painted , all trying to take advantage of the good weather, the school holidays (because let’s face it we’re all just wishing we can get our teenagers involved to cut our labour and get to enjoy a cold one as soon as possible).

From flat to gloss finishes, white base or ultra deep bases, a gallon of paint versus a quart, cheap to high end paint products, the selections and combinations are almost endless and while most paint companies in Vancouver will always recommend the best products to use for your specific needs I have noticed that sometimes the “high end” products are being offered more often than not. Don’t take me wrong, this is not a bad thing, since the paint companies know their “high end” paint products are the safest products, for the Homeowner and the paint company, to offer because they’re usually self priming to a lot of substrates, they cover well in two coats even when doing a colour change, they tend to have low to no VOC’s making them more user friendly.

So, if you haven’t done much painting before (meaning you have at least the concept of rolling handled) you should stick to the paint company’s recommendation. If you do have some experience, even small, maybe you painted during a summer back in the day or have painted a few rooms in your Home (or your Girlfriend’s place) I would suggest may be taking a few tips which may save you a couple bucks.

1. When painting new areas such as bare drywall, bare wood, bare metal. Stick to the recommendation of your paint store, if that recommendation is a high end (pricier product) and you have a few rooms of new drywall to paint then I would suggest using an economic drywall primer from Sherwin Williams called PVA (always have the paint store tinted to a colour as close as the one you’ll be using and only buy what you need as tinted products are non-returnable).
Why am I recommending using a drywall primer when you have a self-priming paint? Well, drywall walls tend to be very (and I swear am not trying to be redundant) very dry, specially the areas around the joints where the mudding/tapping was done and will soak a lot of paint if not primed. Rolling (no need to cut if you are careful and get as close as possible to the edges/corners) a coat of inexpensive primer can save you a few bucks since you will be using a lot less top coat (regular paint). The amount of paint you will save by rolling a primer coat first can be considerable specially when painting larger areas.

2. Repainting any room walls with the same colour, if this is the case I recommend using a product called Quali-Kote on their low-sheen finish if you’re not paint savvy or eggshell if you have any kids, pets or in high traffic areas where walls can get dirtier. An eggshell finish will provide you with and easier to clean surface while a low-sheen finish will allow you to hide imperfections better and to have a smoother finish in your walls.

3. Colour change in your walls? If the colour change isn’t too drastic (light to dark or vise versa) I recommend using a product called SuperPaint, by far my favorite Sherwin Williams product. SuperPaint is a very thick, self-priming paint with excellent coverage and the best thing is, it sits right there between too expensive or too cheap. SuperPaint is our “Go-to” product because of its versatility and how user friendly it is. However, if you do find SuperPaint to be too thick for you can ad some Dynaflow to it to make it run smoother and to extend its “wet edge”, meaning you will have a bit more time to do a cut-line and a good back-roll job.

4. Painting a kitchen or bathroom? If so, you might want to try Duration matte-finish. Duration is a great product, more so because it is easier to clean, it’s stain resistant and more durable than most paint. Yes, Duration sale price is a bit steep but trust me, you will thank me during clean-up time, specially after your secret that marinara sauce starts bubbling.

Even though all of the recommendations made above are quite user friendly and easier to apply than most you should always consider buying quality brushes and roller sleeves.

• Dynamic 10mm microfiber roller sleeves will give your paint job a nice and smooth finish (always remember to go around the surfaces of the roller sleeve with the tacky side of a piece of painter tape to remove any loose fibers).
• Brilliant 2 & ½” brushes are relatively inexpensive and have a nice feel to them, they’re not too stiff nor too soft, should be perfect for a first timer (no need to go for an expensive brush unless you know how to take care of them and are capable of cleaning them properly).
• Green painters tape (1 & ½”) is an excellent aid to keep areas not being painted clean or use green frog tape (1 & ½”) if you want a clean cut-line.
• Sims trays and liners are usually inexpensive and can hold about ¾ of a gallon of paint leaving some room to roll the paint roller without overloading it with paint.
• For small holes in your walls use Drydex, a pink patching compound that dries white when dry indicating when it’s safe to sand the patches.
• Use a fine grit sponge sanding block to sand all the patches in your walls.

The wide range and versatility of Sherwin Williams products plus the excellent customer service provided by all Sherwin Williams employees are some of the many reasons why we love to use their products and even though this blog sounds like an endorsement it isn’t, all paint companies have great products just like the ones described above I just thought I’d do my first recommendation blog on the products I use and know best.

Exterior Carpentry Repair Work and Painting in Vancouver.

Professional and experienced carpenters for all your exterior and interior carpentry needs in Vancouver and the Lower Mainland. One of the many benefits you will get when hiring Argenta Painting and Restoration Ltd. for all your renovation needs.

Even though Vancouver does not have the extreme weather conditions (-30/+30 degrees Celsius) as other parts of Canada the constant and abundant rain (what! it rains in Vancouver!? No way!) is one of the biggest enemies of any Homeowner in the Lower Mainland. Water (rain) damage is a very common occurrence in roughly 80% of the houses we paint every year in Vancouver. When left unattended a small leak can cause serious problems on any surfaces, especially on horizontal surfaces or any surface that by design allows water to collect, such surfaces include, but are not limited to, decks, porches, railings, roofs, gutters, stairs, etcetera.

The most common damage we see in Vancouver homes are rotted fascia boards, which constitute about a 50% of all our carpentry repair work. The usual culprits for all the water damage are neglect, from Homeowners thinking that either paint is a mere cosmetic part of their house or that their rough cedar fascia will last forever just because of the quality of the wood they have and while some woods are much better at resisting the elements as others they all need constant maintenance.

Showing your home some much needed TLC (tender love and care) is a smart thing to do to protect your investment because let’s all face it, Vancouver house prices are through the roof and neglecting and investment that big may not be the sensible thing to do. Applying a couple coats of paint, stain or clear coat will increase the longevity of your Home.

Painting every 10-12 years as a preventative measure may seem, to most Homeowners as a better option rather than paying for costly structural and water proofing repairs every 15 years...
