OLD NORTH LONDON - CENTURY HOME- COMPLETE EXTERIOR
On June 27th, we started painting and restoring the exterior of a super cute cottage in Old North London. This amazing lady loves this home so much. She was keen on never having to repaint it again. With our exterior guarantee, she will never have to pay for another paint job. There will be a slight change of colour to match the new windows. Several previous and recent poorly prepped areas have failed and therefore require our expertise to maintain and to raise the value of the property. This will be our 6th home in Old North London this Season. We are thrilled to showcase this beautiful home.
POULSON PROJECT - WORTLEY VILLAGE - Complete Exterior
- 5 STAR Google Review By The Homeowner - CATHERINE POULSON -
A recent 2016 interior renovation prompted the owner to replace the driveway and to have the exterior completely repaired and restored. This client saw our law sign one street over while walking their dogs on Briscoe St. Once we struck a deal, we proceeded to pressure wash the entire exterior. All wood surfaces were machine and hand sanded whilst priming all the raw exposed wood surfaces with an oil primer. All gaps were sealed with elastomeric sealants. All loose planks were reaffixed and holes filled with wood filler throughout. The end-result was truly amazing that lead to more work on Askin Street. This project was completed properly in 4 days.

CHENG PROJECT - WORTLEY VILLAGE - 5 STAR Google Review By The Homeowner - JASON CHENG -
This freshly minted resident at LHSC bought this gem in the heart of Wortley Village. The main floor was recently renovated for resale. Alas, the second storey was not restored and it looked it. Awaiting his wife to arrive from Hong Kong, the homeowner started the renovation. He hired us to make sure that the walls were restored back to new. We machine sanded all the walls, trim work and doors. This made a massive difference to the end-result. Smooth, flat walls were the order of the day. Tongue-in-cheek, he referred to this house as the crack house due to the vast amount of cracks. This crack house was quickly and effectively rehabilitated. This project was completed properly in 4.5 days. S. Orr from July 12th above is neighbours with Dr. Cheng.
STARR PROJECT - BISHOP HELLMUTH - Complete Exterior
- 5 STAR HOUZZ Review By The Homeowner - L STARR -
In the heart of Historic Bishop Hellmuth, on St. James Street resides this gem of a home built in the 1890's. Dr. Roberts and his wife are new to London. They purchased a renovated home and chose to renovate the exterior on their own. We were hired to provide a facelift to all paintable surfaces. We used Dulux Diamond and Sherwin - Williams Rejuvenate on all wood surfaces. As with the Afonso project, the Sherwin - Williams Rejuvenate will prevent the old paint from peeling. We literally locked the old paint in with the new paint job. We were asked to restore the original front doors. We did this in spades. This project was completed properly in 3 days.

- 5 STAR Google Review By The Homeowner - WILLIAM RUSSELL -
It didn't take long to realize that this was going to be the most notable project of the 2018 exterior season. Painting your Historic Woodfield Home in two-tone green is brave. All loose stucco was scraped off. We repaired all the hairline cracks in the original stucco finish. ÜBERPAINTERS applied Dulux Diamond Exterior paint on the main house and garage facade in Autumn Crisp. The board and batten in Dulux Wreath of Green. We used brushes, rollers and sprayers to achieve this perfect finish. Many neighbours stopped to observe and to discuss our process. This project was completed properly in 4 days.

With rain every third day, we sought out opportunities to complete this project properly.

LEONA E PROJECTS - HISTORIC WOODFIELD +
- 5 STAR Google Review By The Homeowner - LEONA E -
This historic cottage in London's Historic Woodfield had not been painted for over decade. Mostly, homeowners paint their homes every five years. Most do-it-yourself home owners will repaint a single room annually. We were asked to completely restore the wall condition back to new. The house having shifted throughout the years, there were cracks everywhere. This home has young children living there. The owners also understood the value of a quality paint. We all agreed that Dulux Diamond was the paint for them. Diamond is scrub-able and will not allow stains to penetrate. Best of all, when you wipe it, it will not burnish. This client has been a client for many years and we have received many referrals from them. This project was completed properly in 4 days.
