Wood Staining Refinishing

Wood staining your newly installed siding, decks, windows or any natural wood surfaces or fixtures is critical to protect the wood and preserve its beauty. However, wear and tear will eventually affect even stained wood, and we recommend periodically refinishing these surfaces. Numerous products and application methods are used in the wood staining and wood refinishing processes, many of which are extremely challenging applications to master. Luckily, Vanguard Painting has been staining and refinishing wood for a long time, and is fully capable of properly applying even the trickiest of products. Established in 1998, Vanguard Painting has decades of experience planning and executing large scale wood staining or refinishing projects in Vancouver and the Lower Mainland. We know the proper products to use in different situations and have all the specialized equipment that is necessary to complete large and complex projects.

Why Wood Staining and Wood Refinishing is Important

Staining wood seals off the pores in the wood, preventing water from seeping in and causing structural or aesthetic damage. Rot is a real problem when exterior natural wood surfaces are not properly sealed. As well as damage from the elements, wear and tear can also leave their mark on natural wood surfaces.

Wood staining and wood refinishing is essential to preserve the surfaces and even the structural integrity of your building, including:

"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."

"The British Columbia Transplant Society recently contracted with Vanguard Painting to repaint our entire office, including patient exam rooms, patient waiting room and patient washrooms… We were very pleased with the Vanguard team. Everyone we dealt with was pleasant, efficient and they did exactly what they said they were going do, when they said they would do it. We would definitely recommend Vanguard as well as use them again ourselves."
