Pre-sale Condo Repaint

Pre-sale Condo Repaint

This project was a one bedroom condo in Bridlewood. The Vancouver based home-owner had been renting the property for several years and had decided to sell. I was hired over the internet to paint the units walls and clean up the baseboards and trim for the customer. The project was single coat, same colour throughout the 900 square foot unit, except for an original dark feature wall that required two coats. As for the baseboards and trim, a standard contractors white acrylic latex semi-gloss was used which made touching up cost effective with Sherwin-Williams Pro-Classic semi gloss without having to paint everything. Caulking with Alex white was also included. Total cost to customer was $680 including all materials and labour and was completed in to 1.5 days....
Rental Suite

Rental Suite

This rental was extremely filthy and had not been painted in years. It was an apartment above a pizza parlour that saw a lot of greasy traffic from downstairs, especially in the stairwell access to the unit. For this project to help keeps costs as low as possible for the landlord,  in areas that had grease stains we used TSP, then a Sherwin-Williams oil based primer that is fast drying (within an hour) and latex paint-able. This step took less than 15 minutes. After this was finished and all walls patched, we used the colour match latex to do ‘spot’ painting anywhere there were significant stains. This also took about 15 minutes. Once everything was dry, the unit was painted in the same colour a single coat. The landlord was very happy with the finished result and very happy with the price since he had expected a major renovation.  ...
Ceiling texture removal

Ceiling texture removal

This project was acoustic (popcorn) ceiling texture removal and painting of ceilings and walls. The majority of the ceilings where unpainted and came off relatively dust free with the process. The hallway, however had been previously sprayed with an acrylic latex which makes the process significantly dusty. For the unpainted areas, plastic protecting the flooring and counters was all that was required. For the painted ceilings, the area was completely sealed off. Its advisable to have your walls painted at the same time texture removal is done so the ceiling/wall creases can be prepared for amazing crisp lines. The project process 1. Secure and protect area to be scraped 2. Water mist unpainted ceilings/ direct scrap painted ceilings 3. Scrap off all texture 4. Pole sand ceilings with vacuum attachment 5. Two coats primer 6. skim coat all ceiling/wall creases and where required 4. Pole sand ceilings with vacuum attachment 5. One coat of Benjamin Moore Ultra-matte ceiling paint 6. DryDex patch any imperfections missed by skim coating. 7. Pole sand patches with vacuum attachment 8. Spot prime patches 9. Final coat coat of Benjamin Moore Ultra-matte ceiling paint 10.
