Painter recommendation

By Shercom 10 February 2014 11

We have a wall of new built-in bookcases which, after my well-meaning but amateurish start, now need the professional touch so that they match the woodwork in our new house.  So we need a fastidious professional painter who does small jobs willingly.  Any suggestions?

What’s Your opinion?

My wife and I are more than happy to recommend Kingdom Painting Services. This is a father and son team who also call on 3 or 4 more very experienced painters as needed.
They have all the best gear including scaffolding, spray guns etc. but at the same time, no job is too small. We asked for two full coats of Dulux paint and that is exactly what we got. No annoying short cuts!
Recently Hamza and his team spent about a week at our place painting the entire exterior of our house and some surrounding fencing. We loved how clean and polite they were and how they did not allow the job to drag on like so many tradesmen do.
Right from our initial phone call to Ali (0416944655) the boys were friendly, professional and accessible. They took great pride in their job and nothing was too much trouble.
All areas are carefully taped and drop sheets are laid with great care. They volunteered useful suggestions as they went to improve our final result and their cleanup was the best I have seen from any painter; by far.
Their quote was the best of the three we obtained by some way and it was only about 24 hours from when we first rang to when our written quote arrived by email. Other painters kept us waiting for weeks.
We found these guys through RIOTACT about a month ago and we are very glad we did.
Our house looks like new and we have had lots of favourable comments from neighbours and passers-by.
If we need a painter again in the future we will go straight to these guys and we reckon you should too.

Do *not* call Glendinning Painting. I absolutely *loathe* their ads on 2CC.

The recommendation of #1. BelcoMan, is now supported by well-painted bookcases and a bank balance reduced by a not unreasonable sum.

“after my well-meaning but amateurish start”

haha, I know /exactly/ how you feel…been there, done that! They make it look so easy on TV…then all of a sudden you have a mess 🙂

No Holden Caulfied, not Dorothy.
Richard not available for six weeks, so if you can wait, then his busyness is a good sign. I can’t so I’m currently waiting for Gabriel to visit.
Thanks for the later recommendations.

Thanks for the quick response – RiotACT has lived up to the plug given to it by eldest daughter.

Is her name Dorothy by any chance?

After a bad experience with an alleged “painter” I had Adrian from Azzika Painting re-do my Cedar frames. He was punctual, transparent about job detail, and delivered a quality finish. Not sure if he does small jobs, but no harm in asking. 0424836575.

I recommend Richard Murfet –

I’ve used him twice. Semi-retired so he may or may not be available. Takes his work seriously. A good man.
