What does a painting service include?

Usually, painting services will include the full process from setup and preparation to painting and final clean up. Some common painting services include:

Interior wall painting 

Painting your interior walls will give your space a fresh new look, help reduce cooking smells, control mould, and remove fingerprints and marks. A professional painter will choose paints to suit the style and function of your office, house, bedroom, apartment, or bathroom. Preparation starts with removing or covering furniture and putting down drop sheets, along with washing any wall surfaces. Your painter will repair any surface holes then sand rough areas and prime if needed. To paint walls and ceilings, your painter will start by cutting in with a small brush, before covering the remaining surfaces with a roller brush. They may apply 2-3 coats to create a smooth, even surface. Finally, your painter will clean up by washing out the brushes and rollers, folding up drop any cloths, and removing the tape from windows and outlets.

Exterior painting

It’s important to maintain paintwork for your home’s exterior, not only for your home’s value and first impressions but because it’s constantly exposed to the elements. You’ll need to repaint weatherboards every few years, plus fences, gutters, window-sills, and doorways every 5-10 years to maintain a fresh look. When you hire an exterior painter, they’ll usually sand back and prep the area, taking off any cracked or peeling paint, and then prime and paint the surfaces. They’ll choose a paint designed for your climate and structure to ensure it lasts. Once they’re finished, your painter will inspect for any missed spots and check the edges are all neat.

Graffiti and murals

Your business, nursery, or feature wall will stand out from the crowd with a graffiti mural, or larger-than-life artwork. If you have a design ready to go, your painter can enlarge this onto your walls, or design a custom piece for your home or office. Your painter will prepare the surface by cleaning it carefully, putting down drop sheets, and painting a base colour if needed. Then they’ll get to work on your artwork, using a ladder to reach each part of the painting. They’ll likely reference an existing drawing or photo throughout the process to ensure they have every detail right. Once they’re finished, they’ll pack up their equipment, wash out any brushes used, and remove the drop sheet. Some artwork may be finished in just a few hours, while larger, highly detailed pieces may take weeks.

Paint stripping 

Many painters are experienced in paint removal, too. Since paint stripping is generally a messy and time-consuming job, it’s a good idea to outsource it to a professional. Some common reasons for paint stripping include new colour for your interior doors, removing wood stain from kitchen cabinets so you can update the colour, or stripping cracked paint from a surface so it’s ready for repainting. Your professional painter can also help with graffiti removal and repainting, as well. Depending on the surface, they’ll use a mixture of scraping tools, sandpaper, and chemicals to remove as much paint as is needed, ensuring proper safety and ventilation throughout.

Painter Needed


Rostrevor SA, Australia

13th Sep 2020

Hello! We are renovating our stairs and need the three walls painted, along with the window trim. The trim around the two windows is cream. We want it painted white. The three walls are a brown colour and we want them painted a light grey/blue colour. WE WILL SUPPLY THE PAINT. You supply brushes, rollers, drop cloths, etc. You MUST have scaffolding/ladders that allow you to work over a stairwell. The area is very high. There are three walls to paint (and the window trim). One large wall (where windows are) and two small side walls. There is one small hole to patch too - from a screw. I’m only looking for painted with a sharp eye for detail. I need nice straight lines please. Thank you!

Hosung was amazing! We will be calling home back with more work.

Repointing to timber windows


Wattle Park SA, Australia

3rd Jan 2021

After the initial job post, we have spent 10 hours completing the inside face of all the windows and the sanding, scraping, removal of the loose putty and oiling base with linseed oil. This was all the prep. Now the task is to just come once to do the puttying around the the window panes and any other gaps or holes in the timber ready for painting. I made a start to show you what I mean. See attached. 7 windows total, only the external face. We’ve adjusted our budget to suit the time we expect it will take someone handy like yourself. We can supply the putty.

Well organised and quality workmanship.

Make more white benches


Adelaide SA 5000, Australia

17th Oct 2020

Hey guys! I’m needing someone to make up some more of these white benches, I bought these 4 off of Gumtree and I’m wanting 12 more! They aren’t very big, about 1m long each maybe. The 4 cost me $100 cash so I’m expecting the 12 to cost about the $300-$400 range. I can paint them white, just need them constructed and sanded. I’d like them to be as close as possible so I can give you one to work off of. Using recycled wood is fine. I can also pick them up if needed.

Thankyou Rick! Amazing work.
