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.

Commercial Renovation

$4,000

Corrimal NSW, Australia

11th Jun 2021

I need two small kitchenettes demolished and removed. Once they are removed, the wall behind will need to be tidied up (services sealed etc) so that they can be painted. Additionally, we have a small piece of wall that has been partially demo'd that will need to be removed and tidied in preparation for painting. The job also will need someone to paint the internal walls of a commercial space incl brickwork, doors, woodwork AND spray internal window frames (internal only). No ceiling painting needed. I would prefer a team of multiple painters to get the job done quickly with minimal disruption to the business. Photo's attached for scale. Note there are additional internal-facing windows not pictured and another small office that will need to be included (size of a very small single bedroom). There are a number of large wall-mounted mirrors in the space that will need to be removed and re-installed for painting. Job must be done to a high standard and cleaned up well. Must also be completed my appropriately licensed and insured tradies. All waste must be disposed of by the person undertaking the job. We would like the job to be completed by June 30. Located in Corrimal.

My painter had just finished the painting of my apartment, and afterwards re-sanded 6 inches of skirting board. He was going to come back and paint the 6 inches this week after a visit to Melbourne but has been caught in lockdown for the week. I have a house opening this weekend and need it finished. It just needs a final coat over the 6 inches. This would take maximum of 15 minutes. I live in the CBD of Wollongong, can anyone do Wed or Thursday ? I have the paint - Lexicon quarter
