BISHOP HELLMUTH - CENTURY HOME - Complete Exterior
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.
WORTLEY VILLAGE - CENTURY HOME - Interior Components
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.

We performed wood repairs, installed new and applied wood mouldings, nailed, screwed and glued those elements and sealed the entire perimeter whilst painting it all in one heritage 'designated' colour. This project was an extreme height and required a boom lifter for 3 days to ensure that we can guarantee the end result for as long as this client will own her property.

This project was a masive transformation as it required pebble dash, various sealants and wood repairs throughout all the levels. With rain every third day in June, we sought out opportunities to complete this project properly.

5 STAR GOOGLE REVIEW - 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.

5 STAR GOOGLE REVIEW - CATHERINE POULSON
A recent 2017 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 by 4 painters including a pressure washing day atop.

WOODFIELD - A DESIGNATED HERITAGE HOME - COMPLETE EXTERIOR
On October 4, we started another restored Heritage cottage / home on Waterloo Street. A well-known and successful commercial London based real-estate broker recruited his contractor father to completely restore the interior. We were hired to beautify and protect the exterior. Alas, for them, the façade and rear bricks were painted. Failed attempts to blast the paint off, due to aging and soft brick, curbed those wishes. We have been hired to continue the painting of the remainder of the brick and the entire house including 3 gables to their former glory with a crane. All the surfaces are either wood or brick. This project took 6 painters, 3 days to complete properly.

The new owner informed us that this portico in the Bishop Hellmuth neighbourhood hadn't been painted since the mid 70's. What is truly remarkable is that this portico was in relatively good condition for being so aged. We were hired to bring new life to it. After we removed the vines, we thoroughly hand and machine sanded and scraped the surfaces. Once sanded, we used elastomeric sealants and an oil-based primer to further protect the wood. The client chose the black and white motif. This house used to be a rental and as such, Pastry Chef hired us to the restore the condition of the walls to new and to then paint the entire property.
