Greater Vancouver Heritage House Painting & Restoration
Did you know that heritage homes provide some of the Vancouver’s most affordable housing and the majority of the city’s rental housing? They are a unique and beautiful asset to the greater Vancouver and New Westminster areas. However, without the proper care and attention, your heritage home may not look as elegant as it once did. Extreme weather conditions can take a toll on your heritage house and cause its foundation, siding, and unique physical characteristics to appear dirty or broken down in addition to creating a potentially unsafe living environment.
If you’re a proud owner of a heritage home in the Vancouver and/or New Westminster areas and want to restore your property to its original beauty, contact Pure Luxe Painting for heritage home restoration and painting today!
What Is a Heritage Home?
Just because you own an older home in the Vancouver area doesn’t necessarily mean you own a heritage home. Although a heritage home’s age can be over 100 years old, it is not defined by its age, but by its heritage value and character. According to the National Standards & Guidelines for the Conservation of Historic Places in Canada, a home is deemed a heritage home by its aesthetic, historic, scientific, social, or spiritual importance or significance for past, present, or future generations. This includes its:
- Spatial configurations
- Cultural associations
- And more!
Heritage Home Painting in Vancouver
Painting heritage homes in Vancouver requires painters with a great deal of patience and close attention to detail. Sometimes this can lead to a slow and tedious process, and our painters work diligently throughout the entire process of painting your heritage house. Approximately 80 percent of our time spent restoring your heritage home is not painting. Because of their old age, heritage homes often require many wood repairs, requiring many boards to be replaced before any painting can be done. We’ll take excellent care of your home to give you the look you desire!
