We’re glad to work on projects of all sizes, and you can always count on us using top-quality paints and equipment. If you live in or around Metro Vancouver, the Sea-to-Sky corridor, or the Fraser Valley, we welcome you to take advantage of our services. Below, you’ll find some of our most frequently asked questions so you can better understand what to expect from our team.
What Should I Look for in a Painting Contractor?
As you search for a top-tier painting contractor, be sure to consider a few factors. First, we recommend meeting with several companies and discussing your expectations and needs. Then, get estimates for the top contenders and check references and credentials. A reputable residential and commercial painting service should have no problem providing you with this information.
What Types of Painting Services Do You Offer?
Our services are geared toward commercial clients that need exterior and interior painting. Over the years, we’ve painted warehouses, high-rises, townhomes, offices, shopping centres, hockey arenas, convention centers, and much more. In some cases, our team can also handle new construction painting. Beyond painting, we can also repair concrete, replace rotten wood, and replace caulking and other sealants.
How Do I Tell a Company Is Licensed and Insured?
It should not be difficult to tell whether a painting company is licensed and insured. In fact, this information is probably stated on their website. If you can’t find any mention of liability insurance, always feel free to call the company’s main office and ask for a copy of their Insurance Certificate.
Do You Have Liability Insurance?
Vanguard Painting carries a $5 million liability insurance policy. We’re happy to provide a certificate upon request.
Do You Have WorkSafeBC Coverage?
We’re proud to have been in good standing with WorkSafeBC since 1998. A clearance letter is available upon request.
Do You Paint Interiors?
At Vanguard Painting, we’re proud to do it all! We offer interior and exterior services for industrial and commercial clients.
What Kind of Paint Do You Use?
Our commercial painting contractors only use premium materials when painting. Depending on the specifics of your project, including the surface to be painted and the environmental conditions it will be exposed to, we’ll choose the paint type best suited to your needs.
Do You Offer a Warranty?
Yes! We offer multi-year warranties on many of our services. This is in addition to warranties offered by suppliers. However, some jobs, such as painting very old structures or walking/driving surfaces, often do not come with a warranty.
Do You Have a Health & Safety Plan?
Yes. Vanguard Painting has a comprehensive plan in place to keep our team safe on the job and in compliance with WorkSafeBC
When Is the Best Time of Year to Paint?
The best season to paint depends on your needs. Interior painting can be done all year but painting interior surfaces during the winter tends to be less expensive and easier to schedule. If you need an exterior paint job, you’ll need to be more careful when scheduling. Weather permitting, exterior season lasts from spring through autumn (April-October). Summer is our busiest season, but you won’t have to worry quite so much about rain delays. In any case, we recommend scheduling exterior painting well in advance.
How Often Should I Paint?
How often you should paint depends on the materials you’re dealing with. Painted stucco, concrete, wood, and Hardie Board can last up to 10 years, while metal surfaces might start to fade after only four. If you notice your paint job is beginning to fade or flake, don’t hesitate to reach out to the experienced painters at Vanguard Painting.
How Long Does It Take to Paint a Home?
The team at Vanguard Painting can get the job done in about one (1) week, assuming a medium-sized home. Larger homes and commercial facilities will take more time, but we will be sure to let you know a projected timeline before we begin work. At our initial consultation, be sure to let us know if you’re under any time constraints.
How Much Will It Cost to Paint My House?
Pricing for exterior and interior paint jobs varies widely. The cost might fluctuate according to the size of the project, type of materials, and how much labor will be necessary. As such, it’s difficult to give an accurate cost estimate without knowing your specific circumstances. However, Vanguard Painting does offer free consultations and estimates to our prospective clients. Following a site visit, we’ll prepare a clear outline of your project’s potential costs for you. What’s more, we’ll never begin work until you’ve approved the estimate.
Do You Offer Any Other Services?
Beyond painting, we offer an array of services. Our Vancouver clients call on us for the following jobs:
- Concrete Repair and Restoration: Our team can restore your cracked or damaged concrete, making it appear just like new!
- Waterproofing: British Columbia certainly sees plenty of rain. That’s why waterproofing your exterior is crucial. Fortunately, we can take care of this detailed work.

Yes! We’re glad to provide each of our customers with a free, no-obligation estimate. We also welcome requests for budget quotes on future projects that are still in the planning/budgeting phase.
