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.

Fantastic work done by Ali and his crew. I painted the whole house interIor and exterior and every little corner was taken care of and the end result looked better than what it used to look when my home was a display. Ali and his crew are very professional, highly skilled, they do not rush through work and attention to detail is their strength. Highly highly recommend Ali and his services. Thank you so much brother for all the hard work you have put in the last few days as if it was your own home. 🙏🏼

The standard suburban 4-bedroom house wall painting with off-white colours. Paint can be provided. Your own equipment. Please mention does your quote includes paint or not. Houseplan attached to show how large is area. EDIT: Double coat. Single storey repaint. Empty house. EDIT 2 : - We are looking to use Dulux paints. If your able to source and supply these at a lower price than we could buy them from Bunnings, please let us know - Please let us know what prep work, cleaning, etc you will be performing and what we need to do before you arrive. - Please let us know if you intend to spray or roller - I'm also interested in getting the skirting boards, doors, door frames and window frames painted. They are currently painted in a gloss enamel. I would like to know how much extra it would cost to have these painted and what prep work will be involved. EDIT 3 : I've attached pics of the house to show what condition the existing paint, etc is in. There are some minor scratches on the door frames and window frames and a few small cracks and marks in the plaster. But all up its in very good condition. The house is about 10 years old. Current paint is Dulux White Duck 1/4 flat washable on the walls and Skirtings, architraves and doors are White Duck 1/4 gloss enamel. I would be looking to have it painted over with a lighter, more crisp white. Something like Dulux Natural white. I'll decide on the final colours shortly.

We've had a terrible spill on our beloved dining table. Thee culprit: oil-based fragrance, see photos attached. Looking for a fix, up to you how it's done - open to ideas /solutions incl sanding down and re-finishing the top surface of the table. The table has a simple thin clear coat finish, and it looks like the oil has eaten through the finish (the spill was only discovered about 24 hours later..we tried using bicarb soda to clean it up, ended up with a big scar and several other blots.. )
