"Restoring a house like this back to its original condition takes more than just good painters.

The restoration of project included extensive carpentry work as well as wood prep and repair before painting."
Warren Nyline, President of Warline

An Exterior Restoration and Repaint by Warline Made this New Westminster Heritage House the Prettiest on the Block

New Westminster is the oldest incorporated city in the province. In its day it was a bustling mining town. The completion of the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1886 through the city helped fuel its growth and over the following 20 years a building boom resulted in the city being filled with buildings rich in Victorian and Edwardian architecture. Queen's Park and surrounding areas are one of Warline's favourite places to work.

The Captain house located near Queen's park was restored and repainted by Warline in the summer of 2012. Warline's team of heritage carpenters replaced much of the shingles which meant individually cutting the scalloped feature of the shingles to replicate the original design. Even shingles on the lower roof line were replaced.

The colour palette on this house remained the same using pinks from Benjamin Moore. Exterior painting of this house was done using Benjamin Moore Aura in flat for the siding and satin for the trim.

A pretty painted runner was added to the staircase to complete the look.

Isn't she charming?
