U-Haul Exterior

This time we would like to tell you about the work we did on the exterior of U-Haul buildings in Delta. U-Haul is our dear client and since we painted the exterior of their buildings before we knew this would not be easy. This is a very difficult job due to the use of patterns which required extensive stenciling and precision measurements. The buildings were first pressure washed and then painted. We think it all turned out pretty well. Have a look for yourself.

Floors at Canada Place

The floors at Canada Place Cruise ship terminal is a job we look forward to every year. The cruise ship terminal is a heavy traffic area and the client likes keeping it looking sharp.  We have been going back every spring for at least the last six years. What’s not to love about a good quality, shiny epoxy floor? Just have a look at the pictures..

Rogers Arena Building Front

Rogers Arena Exterior

Here’s another beauty from our commercial portfolio. This job was completed in October 2015. Even though Vanguard has been continuously working inside the Rogers Arena, being able to work on the exterior again brings back a lot of good memories.

After the big red Rogers Arena sign was removed, there were 180 metal panels to be cleaned and sprayed. Our painters worked from a swing stage and did an excellent job.

Christmas at Canada Place

Since 2012, we have been a proud sponsor of Christmas at Canada Place. This year again, you can stroll along the beautiful display of Christmas Trees and other atractions at the west promenade of Canada Place. What we really like is the fact that this event raises donations for the Strathcona Community Centre’s Food Security for Children program. So make sure to stop by if you feel like being inspired. Whether it is to help a good cause or to get some fresh ideas for decorating your own Christmas tree.

Happy Holidays everyone!

Food Drive for the Covenant House

This one is to say big thank you!
Thanks to all of you good souls for your generous food donations! As promised, on Friday Dec 11, we made a big delivery to the Covenant House downtown. We have a nice Christmas dinner planned for these guys. Pretty much all our employees chipped in, as well as many of our business partners and friends. It was wonderful to see a few bags of food turn into big piles. So, that was our mission for this Holiday Season. Check!

Again, thank you everyone for your generosity! If you would like to make your own donation to the kids and young adults at the Covenant House, please donate here.

Exterior Painting at Unifiller

This is a job we just finished yesterday. It was one of the last commercial exterior jobs of this season. You are looking at Unifiller’s busy manufacturing hall in Delta. First the building was pressure washed. Never underestimate the prep work! The crew scrubbed down any mildew that was present and thoroughly removed all stains and spores.  Loose, peeling, or flaking paint had to be wire brushed. Finally, all concrete and stucco siding was painted, as well as all garage doors and man doors.

Vanguard Painting Food Drive 2015

We at Vanguard Painting are always looking for ways to give back to the community.  This year we decided to work with the Covenant House Vancouver.  They provide a safe and nourishing environment for homeless youth to get back on their feet.  To help we decided to run a food drive to help provide food for the winter season.  We are accepting food donations from now until December 11th 2015.  If you would like to help us out with our cause please drop off your donations to our office or give us a call and we will come pick up your contribution.
