Recent Painting reviews in Sydney

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.

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:

House painting

House painting services involve a range of tasks to transform both the interiors and exteriors of your home. Expert house painters can walk you through the entire painting process–from colour consultation and surface preparation to paint application.

  • Interior 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 with a Certificate IV license will choose paints to suit the style and function of your kitchen, bedroom, ceiling, 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.

Peel away paint removal


Glebe, New South Wales, Australia

26th Aug 2023

Brick facade "peel away" paint stripping underway. Was doing it myself but i have injured wrist so cannot complete the job. Small top area and half portico needs removal in next 1-3 days as has been on for a week. The final top section and half portico needs to be applied at the same time and then removed a week later. Also top section of facade needs painting ( optional). Peel away product already purchased. - Due date: Before Wednesday, 30 August 2023 - Due date: Before Wednesday, 30 August 2023

Asleep was polite and punctual but I was very disappointed with the result of our job. It was not what l requested and he took much longer than either he or I expected. I do not think he was experienced with the process we were using and as a result damaged the facade of our home. He may well be very adept at other maintenance but in our case the result was very disappointing. Cleaning up after the work was also not great.
