This large tudor heritage home in North Vancouver was painted by Warline Painting in the summer of 2015.
The project required scaffolding to reach the high peaks. Warline’s carpentry team took care of replacement of old rotten woods before prep. Sanding using Festool sanders and extractors were used to control lead dust. Proper prep is an essential step to ensure the wood on these old houses gets the most protection and have the best chance against bubbling.
A Colour Palette Fit for a Tudor
On the siding, Benjamin Moore Hampshire Gray (HC-101) in Benjamin Moore Aura Low Lustre.
All the trim was painted in Benjamin Moore Tarply Brown (CW-170) from the Williamsburg Collection in Aura Satin was used. The Williamsburg Collection features curated by Benjamin Moore in collaboration with the Williamsburg Foundation and reflect rich pigment colours from early American design. Tartly Brown is a rich stunning brown perfect for a tudor exterior.
The stucco and shingles were painted using Benjamin Moore Camouflage (2143-40). It worked well against the Hampshire Gray.
The windows and entry doors were painted using Benjamin Moore Bavarian Cream (OC-123) in a semi-gloss finish. This rich yellowy colour finished off the the house with a perfect amount of contrast.
A Grand Entrance
The front entrance of this home was tucked under trees and a lovely A frame entrance. The door wasn’t likely original to the house but old nevertheless. The option was to replace it or embrace the wear and age of the door. The door was painted using Benjamin Moore’s Grand Entrance paint in Tavern Door. It suited the door and the house perfectly.
