No hesitation to use Sam again or recommend him. We ended up going with Sam even though there were other people slightly cheaper, he had amazing reviews and we felt more confident in him. This paid off - he has a wealth of knowledge and was able to help us out and advise on much more than just the task. His communication throughout the whole process was great.

Top Ceiling Painting related questions

Not necessarily. Your painter can bring with them the required tools needed for a ceiling painting service. They'll usually make use of rollers, brushes, painter's tapes, and your desired ceiling paint. If you already have these ready and on-hand, feel free to lend them to your painter. In case you need additional supplies, you can make arrangements with them as well.

It depends on how big the ceiling is, how many rooms or areas need painting, and how intricate you want your paint or design to be. On average, it takes 30 to 45 minutes to paint a ceiling with the initial coat. If a second coat is necessary, you'll need to wait for at least two hours for the first coat to dry before doing another round of paint application.

You can, especially if you love doing DIY projects. If you're looking to save time or if you don't have the skills to paint your ceiling by yourself, it's always beneficial to leave it to the professionals. Expert ceiling painters have the appropriate tools and experience to make your ceiling look better than it ever was. Hiring a painter also ensures optimal results and lesser mistakes, so you get to save on resources as well.

Flat finish is best to hide the flaws of a textured ceiling. It doesn't reflect light at you, which is perfect for diffusing light in your room. Compared to other types of sheens, you can easily touch up a flat paint finish. Keep in mind, however, that it can be tricky to clean due to its porous surface. It's also easy for a flat sheen to trap debris and dust. Make sure to look for high-quality variants with scrubbable surfaces that can be easier to clean.

What do ceiling painter services include?

Our services include everything you may need from ceiling painters near you, from surface preparation and painting to skim coating and custom finishes. Whether you just had your kitchen redone or you simply want to give your old bedroom ceiling a makeover, Taskers can easily take care of your ceiling painting for you. Here are a few things they can provide:

Color consultation

Have you always wanted to see beautiful colours every time you look up inside your house? You can say goodbye to flat and dull white ceilings by mixing and matching different shades to make your home even more aesthetically pleasing. Your painter can help you choose the best paint colours to suit your space! They can also help you decide on which shade to use depending on the height and vault of your ceiling, the colour of your walls, and your colour scheme preferences.

Consulting an expert ceiling painter about your ceiling's overall look can surely take a load off your back! If you want to take your project up a notch, you can also hire a professional interior designer and make the most out of your space!

Ceiling preparation

It's always wise to prepare the room or area for any painting job. If you recently had your ceilings plastered, you may want to let it dry completely before painting over them. In case you're in the process of new construction, it's also best to work on your ceilings first before your walls so you won't have to worry about excess paint getting on them.

Another step you can take note of this to cover your floors, doors, and other surfaces. In case you're renovating, you can also remove all sorts of obstructions such as furniture, light fixtures, and decor to protect them for accidental paint splatters and drippings. 

Vacuuming the ceiling to remove dust is also crucial so that the primer and paint can stick better to the surface. If you have ceiling holes or cracks, covering them up using a spackle can is also helpful. A stain-blocking primer can help hide your ceiling's flaws, and prevent it from becoming dingy and from having stain bleed-through.

Ceiling painting and finishing

After the consultations and prep work, it's finally time to paint your ceiling! Your painter uses a roller to identify which specific area of your ceiling they can start on. Then, they proceed to roll paint in one smooth direction. It can be a slow process, but this is to make sure that the paint will not spatter. Once the paint is dry, your painter can see to it that there are no splotchy or unpainted areas, or if the ceiling needs a second coat. To top it all of, they can apply a custom finish to avoid any cracks or peeling.

Once all your newly-painted ceilings and walls are dry, you can now proceed with decorating your home as you see fit to make your space truly your own! You can even get a house cleaner to tidy up certain areas, leaving you with a well-decorated and squeaky clean home that you can fully enjoy!

Skim Coat Veranda Ceiling


Roseville NSW, Australia

24th Sep 2023

I need an experienced Plasterer or Drywaller with the appropriate equipment to do a skim coat of a veranda ceiling. I will be doing the prep work, scraping back the existing flaking paint, prepping the ceiling with PVA glue as well as fixing the crack that runs the length of the ceiling, however I lack the tools and the skills to do a skim coat to a high finish. I just require someone to do the skim coat and sanding if required. I would prefer if a slower setting, air drying mud was used, so I understand that it would likely require you to come out twice to complete the job, once to coat, once to sand. Open to negotiation on price and payment method, will be able to exchange contact details upon assigning. - Due date: Flexible

Cosmetic wall and ceiling repair (small cracks, local paint job)


Panania NSW 2213, Australia

4th Sep 2023

A decent number (15-20) of relatively small and local cracks, some longer narrow cracks, couple of places with local minor water damage. I will provide all the paint (dulux interior, dulux aquanamel, dulux ceiling). Basically what needs to be done is 1) to open, fill and paint over the cracks (maybe 15 or 20), most of them are 20-40 cm long, 2) restore a plaster ceiling moulding (10-15 sq cm) in one place and paint it over 3) There are a couple of longer cracks, one is vertical ~2.5m long, another is on undercover ceiling, it's probably 7m long, it's rather thin. - Due date: Flexible

Anthony did a very good job painting the undercover area, including ceiling and walls, even though I originally thought that it's a patching job. Anthony is a pleasure to deal with, a good communicator and does his job well and efficiently. It's clear that he is a skilled specialist with decades of experience. Very happy to recommend Anthony for panting, restoring the walls, mouldings, filling the cracks, and similar things.
