Gorgeous Winnipeg home

It's so nice to have lunch by one of Winnipeg's
wonderful rivers. The home above had one of the most
beautiful back yards we've worked in so far. We actually
watched the fish jump. Quality paint job too 100%
acrylic primer and 2 coats ICI Weatherbeater!

250 hours to complete this painting job

Painting your own home can be a lot of fun! Don't forget to plan for the time. The above gorgeous home close to downtown took nearly 250 hours to complete. That's doing it properly of course!

Paint Shaver tool in action

The Paint Shaver in action. A unique tool we acquired from the USA which literally removes 90% of the paint. It adds about $2,000 or so to a typical house totally clad in wood siding however well worth the effort as the end result is like dealing with a new surface. One of the problems we periodically come across is that when a house is scraped there is still some of the old surface left. When you add primer and or paint to the surface as the volatile organic compounds evaporate it causes a pulling action on the old paint which can result in small failures. Using this treatment eliminates that.

Wasp nest removed from exterior

Wasps are a regular irritant when working outside in the summer. This enormous Hornets nest with critters the size of German Shepherds exceeded all our previous experience and several cans of Hornet spray. No charge!

Painters in school graduation photo

Sometimes we are treated like extended family while working at a client's home. This client was taking pictures of her son's graduation and somehow the painters ended in the picture!

Interior of Manitoba Theatre for Young People

We are asked sometimes whether we do interiors as we don't have many pictures of interiors on our site. It's about a 50/50 split, we just don't have the skills to capture on film the difference. This is a picture of work we completed at the Manitoba Theatre for Young People. Every wall a different colour, 30 feet ceilings and wall damage from thousands of over exuberant would be actors. Yes we do interiors!
