"This review is a year late. Mario cleaned and stained our deck and we were happy with the work that he did. He provided good advice when we asked about which stain to get and knew what he was talking about. After the deck was stained it ended up raining and Mario was happy to come back for another coat. When we removed the masking tape after a day, some paint on the downpipe came off. Again Mario was happy to come back and fix it, however due to COVID lockdown last year this work could not be finished. We were happy with Mario’s work and will be happy to use his services again in the future."

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.

Paint a small portion of paling fence

$50

Prahran VIC 3181, Australia

11th Jan 2022

I have already painted my paling fence, but I have some spots near ground level and some other odd places, that I need to touch up following some landscaping. For someone with a paint gun this will be no more than 30 minutes worth of work, probably much less, but it is too awkward to do with a brush. Price is based on 30 minutes worth of work, which I’m very confident about, and wouldn’t ask the gasket to do any more than that anyway. I also have the paint already.

Sam was awesome. Not only did he come on the same day that I accepted his offer, which was a Saturday afternoon/evening, but I had to tell him to stop because he did more than I asked for. Great attention to detail, clear communicator, and of course great quality workmanship. Thanks heaps Sam
