Preparation is Essential for Exterior Painting Projects

The proper preparation for exterior painting is critical to ensure the longevity and effectiveness of the paint job. Preparation also gives the workman the opportunity to assess the condition of the surfaces to see if there are any other problems that may need to be addressed.

Because exterior painting needs to be accomplished during dry weather — maybe 4 or 5 months in Vancouver — much of the logistical and preparatory planning for exterior painting projects is carried out in the off season. Exterior painting isn’t a spur of the moment type of project!

Preparation starts with the removal of loose paint, dirt, grease, mildew and mold from the paintable surfaces utilizing the most appropriate method whether that be pressure washing, power washing, steam cleaning, hand washing, or other methods. Tenting, masking and drop cloths ensures the paint goes only where it is supposed to and not onto neighbouring buildings or cars. In some instances, traffic may need to be re-routed.

"We recently contracted Vanguard to paint our interior offices and production facility and are extremely pleased with the results. As a marketing services company, it was critical that the finished product look spotless. Vanguard helped us choose the right paint for the job in order to get the look we wanted and stay on budget. They also made suggestions along the way and were very flexible in accommodating our requests. I would highly recommend Vanguard Painting. Quentin and his crew are not only professional – they’re great guys who cleaned up at the end of each day, were always polite, and completed the work on time."

We would definitely recommend Vanguard as well as use them again ourselves."
