Protecting your biggest investment.
When it comes to your biggest investment you want to make sure it not only maintains its looks, but also its structural integrity—all of which will have an effect on its long-term value. With our expertise and years of experience we can help guide you through the important choices to ensure you have a quality job you are satisfied with and one that will protect your investment for years to come.
Apart from curb appeal or appearance alone, it is vital that the house is kept well protected from the weather and especially the rain. Vancouver is a city reclaimed from a rainforest and so we get a lot of rain. Nature was here before we were so no point trying to argue about it. Paint is a layer of water-repellent protection, like a raincoat between the rain and the wood, stucco or other wall surface your house is made of. Worse a layer of failing paint (cracked, chipped or flaking) is possibly worse than no paint at all because the failing paint can actually trap moisture against the wall and that leads to rot.
In our climate outside paint should last 6 to 8 years but that doesn’t mean we can ignore all maintenance during that time. We advise our clients to call us every 2-3 years for some touch up work where we can replace any paint that is failing.
Vancouver Paint Problems
Not only do we live in a rainforest but also a seismic fault line, meaning the ground occasionally shifts beneath our feet. That means your house is subject to vibrations that produce small cracks in the paint. Every time your garage door opens and closes, you slam a door or window, or a big truck goes by, is another shock wave that runs through the house. And over time these make the paint fail.
The solution to residential painting in greater Vancouver and surrounding areas is good preps and painting; but on-going maintenance is just as important. In fact a great paint job will last a long time IF regular inspections and touch ups are done.
