We are a 57-unit co-op housing development located in Southeast Vancouver… after looking at several painting contractors, we chose Vanguard Painting as the contractors to paint our entire townhouse complex. They completed the project to our satisfaction. In our dealings with them, we found them to be very competent, professional and accommodating. We highly recommend Vanguard Painting to anyone who is planning a painting project, no matter how large or complex that project may be.

The British Columbia Transplant Society recently contracted with Vanguard Painting to repaint our entire office, including patient exam rooms, patient waiting room and patient washrooms… We were very pleased with the Vanguard team. Everyone we dealt with was pleasant, efficient and they did exactly what they said they were going do, when they said they would do it. We would definitely recommend Vanguard as well as use them again ourselves.

I am writing this letter of reference on behalf of Vanguard Painting. We are a housing co-operative comprised of 65 units on the east side of Vancouver. In our situation price was a factor, but not nearly as important as the need to have a firm that was not only able to complete the job in a timely manner, but was able to deal effectively with the concerns and personalities of our residents… The Co-operative has never looked better and our Committee has received many compliments in this regard. If you are looking for a firm that cares about their work and the people whose dwellings they are working on, I suggest you look no further.

I have had the pleasure of knowing Vanguard Painting for several years... I feel very confident in recommending Vanguard Painting for any job, big or small, in new construction or repainting, interior or exterior. Quentin, Michael, Josh and all the crews are true professionals… They follow proper painting practices. They look for good technical recommendations and follow through on them. Vanguard crews are much more experienced and trained then most crews I have seen. On a personal note they are honest and genuine, and are great to work with.

Vanguard Painting Ltd completed a large contract to paint approximately 70 residential suites in our rental project at 1129 & 1189 Main St Vancouver. We are pleased with their work, their professionalism and the courtesy of their many painters to our tenants. We do not hesitate to recommend them as painting contractors for any large or small job. As an additional reference, Vanguard completed a large outside painting job at the 65 unit Co-op at Slocan and Grandview Highway, in a workmanlike and efficient way.
