How to Choose the Right Paint Colour
When it comes time to repaint your house, nothing is more important than choosing the right paint colour. Paint colour can change peoples’ perception of your home, giving off a cool and active feeling or warm and cozy, depending on your selection. Choosing the right paint colour depends on a variety of factors, including:
- Architecture type
- Personal preference
- Type of room
- Desired mood
When you decide to paint the exterior of your home there are many factors to consider. For one, colour can make or break the aesthetic appearance of your dwelling and tie in your door, window shutters, and landscape design. Additionally, it can add to your home’s curb appeal, making it more valuable to your British Columbia or Saskatchewan neighbourhood.
When hiring a painting company in Western Canada, consider asking the painters what method they plan to use to paint the exterior of your home. The two most popular methods to paint your home’s exterior is to use a brush (and/or roller) or a sprayer. Below, we outline the pros and cons of using a brush or roller versus using a sprayer to paint your house.

Pure Luxe Painting Product Review: the Graco 1095 Ultramax Sprayer
Pure Luxe Painting just purchased the big boy sprayer from Graco the 1095 Ultramax. The reason that we purchased this machine was because we were looking for a quality sprayer that could do it all from elastomeric coatings to large commercial painting projects where we could run two guns off it and perform at maximum capacity.
After using it I can say without a doubt it was a great investment. It works fast and efficiently and is extremely quiet. The only downside to the unit is that it is very heavy so loading it in and out of the truck takes two people but once you have it down on the ground it works well.
Overall its a great unit to purchase but only if you are doing high volume as well as the odd elastomeric coating.
Our New Construction Painters & Processes
Painting New Construction in Vancouver can be a very simple and stress free process or quite the opposite. On a new construction site there are so many trades and so many moving parts that it is hard to keep the schedule moving along without having people get in each others way. We have now done enough new construction painting to know the correct procedure to eliminate inefficiency as well as costly deficiencies.
It is important to start the project off with a clear understanding of what you are responsible for painting, from there you can set up a schedule with the builder of when you would like to do each step of the process.
