In the spring of 2007, Vanguard Painting Ltd was contracted to strip and repaint the Biltmore Apartments, a century old building in Vancouver. This non-standard assignment began with the removal of a silicone-based elastomeric compound, a task bearing so much risk and uncertainty that other vendors in the city would not provide estimates. Vanguard experimented with a number of options and developed a process that removed the elastomeric layer without damage or abrasion to the underlying surface. I have no hesitation recommending Vanguard Painting for either standard or unusual assignments. They are among the few who take care to understand and deliver on their commitment. The Vanguard team is courteous and the results are second to none.

As manager of property maintenance in Kanata Co-op, I would like to extend a sincere thank you for the recent work your firm did painting the exterior of our buildings. The team was prompt and very professional; in fact they went out of their way to accommodate all requests. Sean the site foreman has excellent organizational skills and is very personable… with employees such as these it is no wonder your company maintains such a great reputation. I would ask that you pass along thanks to all those involved.

I am writing to express our sincere appreciation for your high quality of service. From the original meeting to do the quotation, to the careful and comprehensive job preparation, to the professionalism and courtesy of your crew – all these insured that this project was a satisfying experience for all concerned. I was particularly impressed with how well organized your crew was and that they were always on time. In addition, the work was conducted so as to cause the least amount of disruption to our tenants. I can confidently recommend Vanguard Painting Ltd as a solid and reliable painting contractor. They are clearly experts in their field.

When asked, I had no reservations whatsoever in writing this letter of recommendation for Vanguard Painting. They recently completed all of the hallways, ceilings, four stairwells, and common doors in our 66-unit complex, Hambry Court… We were quite pleased with the quality and professionalism of the painting, the courtesy of the crew, and the manner in which the disruption to strata members was kept to a minimum. Quentin and Michael were regularly on site and any concerns were quickly dealt with. The deficiencies detected during our final walk-through were quickly touched-up and the strata has since decided to keep Vanguard on for regular maintenance of high traffic areas. I have no hesitation in recommending this company.
