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.

Sand wooden decking on top balcony

$150

South Melbourne VIC, Australia

15th Jan 2021

We need the wooden decking on our balcony sanded. The balcony is on the top of a double fronted Victorian Terrace in South Melbourne. The sanding job needs to be done before we are having the ironwork replaced. It's important not too much is taken off, or the wood is sanded too low, or else the ironwork will not screw back in properly at the correct height. We would like TWO coats of a decking stain applied afterwards. Dimensions of the area are 1500 mm x 5130mm. We don't have doors to the area, access is through sash windows. The timing is flexible, we'd be happy for the job to be completed in the next week or so. Thank you!

Colour match and paint door and fix hole in wall

$400

Southbank VIC 3006, Australia

8th Jan 2021

Hi, I have a new door in my apartment but it is not painted/is not colour matched to the white of the original door. I have the old door for using a chip of the old paint to colour match for the new door. The new door is currently installed but can be removed for painting. I also have a small hole in the bedroom wall. I am unsure but I believe the wall is plaster or gyprock and is again painted white. I would need a quote for the door to be colour matched, fully painted in the original white, as well as the hole in the wall filled and colour matched to the wall paint. I have photos for your reference. I need this job completed over the next few weeks.

Darren is a bloody legend. Don't book anyone else if Darren available. He was kind, prompt, respectful, an absolute expert and completely trustworthy. Will be using Darren for all jobs in the future.
