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 my living room and hallway


The Gap QLD, Australia

Need to meet Saturday morning then you will do paint job while a plasterer is in other part of house. May require two people. I’ve already done bedrooms but Saturday need to run an errand while you finish the painting of these two areas- entire lounge (large area pictured), and one entire hallway connecting rooms (medium area). Floor to ceiling just one color white for walls and trimmings. All has just been plastered and sanded, ready to go, but you’ll need to be extremely careful w floors they’re new. If you’re skilled/experienced, maybe additional job after to do both bathroom and ceiling fixture, can negotiate later. Ceiling fixture is cool wooden panelling want to make it white as well. I need this done on the Saturday and will be back in the evening to check on final results, help finish if I have to but prefer that you bring two people as I’m moving furniture in Monday. Sunday will be those last areas (ceiling, kitchen, bathroom). I already have all paint, rollers, pole, brushes, drop sheet, tape. If any additional supplies needed go to Bunnings 9min away I will reimburse. I DONT have a ladder 🪜 and the far side of the ceiling will need one. - Due date: Needs to be done on Saturday, 20 May 2023

Plaster Pro Big Urgent Job (quote price)


The Gap QLD, Australia

14th May 2023

After pulling up wallpaper on a 1960s house, discovered a lot of the walls are terrible. I can’t paint them without pretty much full plastering. Also got a dirty big hole in the garage that I’ve been told a skilled patcher can do. So, 60sqm plastering, looking to get this done over next few days maybe it’s a two-three day job for someone who is an expert. One day to plaster one day to sand. At end of service, walls need to be 100% ready for painting. But for now, I just want a quote- which is why here on Airtasker I prefer to post small $. Please come with all necessary tools to start job on the day, but this payment of $50 is simply to assess the situation and negotiate if we want to proceed further… need this done asap Monday morning would work well or Tuesday afternoon. - Due date: Flexible

Guy is very skilled in his craft and an honest, friendly professional. My family is super happy with the results after he helped fix up our new home, and he took the time to teach me some tips along the way. Thanks Guy!
