Exterior Painting

Crescent Beach is without doubt one of the best hidden gems in South Surrey. This 100 plus year old beachy community used to be a summer getaway destination for Vancouverites. Over the last century the cute little summer only homes have evolved into year round residences for beach seeking locals. The Crescent Beach Swim Club remains an anchor of summer life in the community.

Many of the original cottages have long since disappeared and been replaced with bigger, updated homes. Others have been extensively renovated.

Warline painted this pretty cottage in the summer of 2015. It is a deceiving house from the front. It looks small but when you move to the back you find a big open deck and garden that is shared by a separate guest house and garage.

Wind and Wynd

Challenges of exterior painting houses in Crescent Beach include dealing with tight spaces and awkward, wyndy alleys with limited access. And of course the wind coming off of the water in Boundary Bay. It makes spraying challenging for a painter and requires extra protection of surrounding property. Warline Painting has completed a number of these projects in Crescent Beach so we plan in advance and take all necessary steps to protect owners and neighbours homes from overspray.

From West Coast Shingles to Hamptons Gray

This house needed to be lightened up. The dark stained shingles were overpowering on the house and it didn’t play up the coastal charm of the house. The owners wanted a beachy feel to match their surroundings. Heidi chose Benjamin Moore Stonington Gray (HC-170) for the siding. She also steered away from our typical choice of using a satin or low lustre sheen on the shingles and elected to go with a flat latex paint. This added to the soft grey weathered look you see on houses in the Hamptons. Using paint instead of a stain on the shingles provided the added protection the house needed against weather and salty air.

The trim was brought up to a satin sheen so that it didn’t contrast too much with the shingles and the colour was matched exactly to the white vinyl windows.

A Nod to Navy

For a bit of nautical drama the front deck was painted in Benjamin Moore Blue Note (2129-20). It added a bit of colour without interfering with the simplicity of the two colour scheme on the house.

This Crescent Beach cottage is definitely worthy of year round living.
