Heritage Home Painting

"My happiness is looking at my beautiful old girl.  I always loved my house, but now I'm so happy to see her shine.  WOW Thank you to Warren for seeing the house's potential that first day and carrying through with a plan. Thank you to Sean for fixing up the worn out spots and re-creating the beautiful bits that I hadn't realized the house had! Thank you to Dave and his crew for meticulously bringing life back to the old girl.  The days or cleaning, sanding, patching, trimming, painting, touching up. I appreciate it all. I tried to thank each of them when they were here. I hope I didn't miss anyone. Great group, tell them I said so. I want to thank YOU for your genuine patience and expert guidance. I couldn't have done it without you. Your warmth and passion for creating it just right is why my beloved house looks SO GREAT."

The Well Loved House

There are not of heritage houses left in Surrey. Most remaining ones are parts of farms and there are few that are well maintained. There are no grants for restoring heritage houses in Surrey and while there is a historical society in the city, they are not focused on preserving the old houses in the area.

But the Ferguson House had the right kind of owner. Anna saved for years to be able to restore the exterior of her house. When she was ready she called Warline for help. The repair work to the old wood was extensive. It involved the replacement of many shingles and a complete rebuild of the front railings and steps.

The prep work on the house was exhaustive and required working with our Festool sanding and dust extraction equipment to protect our crew from the lead paint dust. When the house was completed the transformation was remarkable. The before and after pictures are eye popping.
