WINDERMERE - EXECUTIVE HOME - COMPLETE EXTERIOR
Our first notable 2019 exterior project turns out being an amazing start to our season for an amazing couple. Designed as a tone - on - tone - on - tone, the end - result is truly simplistic and elegant. This 1970's home was not a vanity project. The steel railings were rusted and we used industrial PPG primers and paints to make sure that the end - result was a lasting one. We also used high - end masonry PPG elastomeric paints for the stucco finish. Since the house was designed to be in a Benjamin - Moore Pashmina colour, we decided to paint the railings in gloss, the aluminum trim throughout in satin and the façade in flat. The subtleties are just that; subtle! We used the Graco Jet Roller system which allowed us to warranty our work for the lifetime of their ownership of this home. You could be next!
MASONVILLE - EXECUTIVE HOME - POOL HOUSE
This established legal eagle had a vision. She decided to turn her red cedar pool house into a show piece. She loved the raw pine look but that ship had unfortunately sailed. Once wood is stained, it is financially prohibitive to restore wood back to the natural look. So, she decided that she wanted to remove one façade header beam and the adjacent pillars altogether. We removed those and built new pieces in lieu. We installed them and applied three coats of varnish atop it all. This project led to the further painting of a stucco storage hut. All exterior surfaces of the main house and the concrete pool deck in the fall of 2018.
RIVERBEND GOLF - POST & PILLAR - WOODEN COMPONENTS
It all started with the client who called us to paint their exterior and to clean and stain their log beams. In this tight gated senior community, several neighbours saw that we were performing the prep work properly. Within a day, this led to a second and then immediately, a third exterior project. Before the end of day three, word spread and we ended up painting for a fourth, fifth and sixth neighbour. We know people are watching us. Doing things properly is the sole reason that Robert Dorn created ÜBERPAINTERS. We are London's Only Upscale Residential Painting Firm. You will also see the difference immediately.
"Residential properties are completely different from commercial, retail or industrial ones. As you seek out a painting firm, you will find that mostly all London painting companies paint in every market. They are in business to make money wherever they can. At ÜBERPAINTERS, we only paint in the residential market place. Hiring us, is hiring people who are focused on your home!" Robert Dorn | 519.701.9636
MASONVILLE - EXECUTIVE HOME - POOL HOUSE / PERGOLA
Much to the chagrin of the client, this two year old build did not take long to fail. It took a split-second evaluation to determine that nothing had been primed. This critical step is why 93% of paint jobs fail. Priming wood surfaces is an obligatory step prior to painting. Whenever possible, ÜBERPAINTERS uses oil based primers over water-based ones. Once we scraped and sanded every square inch, we applied Sherwin - Williams Prime RX. This product effectively locks-in the improperly primed surface. Other such products are Peel-Bond and Peel-Stop. We used a new Sherwin - Williams paint called Rejuvenate to make sure that nothing will ever peel. Weeks later, upon their return from Ibiza, this job led to the painting of the entire exterior of the main house.
Most modern homes are maintenance free. Projects like painting stucco facades, doors, wooden frames and the like is the bulk of our work on these types of homes. We paint many of these properly but these types of works are not really noteworthy for the sake of showing you a video. Here are a few recent & notable modern home projects.

KILWORTH - ESTATE HOME - POOL HOUSE
This successful real estate agent and his wife recently built their dream home in West London. This estate captures the essence of the modern home. With an exterior living room, kitchen and pool house, we were tasked to paint the pool house bathrooms. The doors and frames were so slick that we used Dulux Gripper to ensure a solid base. The pine within the rooms were sealed with shellac and Dulux Diamond was painted atop. The doors were also painted in a colour to match the slate. We used our portable scanner to find the right colour. When you need it to be completed properly, you call ÜBERPAINTERS.
BYRON - NEW CONSTRUCTION - Exterior Facade +
This new family took matters into their own hands and on their timetable. They decided to change the façade colour as they hated what they chose. We asked them to pick a few colours and we returned to apply a few of those colours on the façade to mull over for several days. They chose this brown custom colour. The door was originally stained but was completed improperly and thereafter stripped to allow us to paint it black to match the remainder of the house. All this and two other areas took two painters one day to complete properly. Type your paragraph here.
