Reccomendations for house painters

By Belles - 7 February 2012 32

Hi Rioters,

I need to have the inside of my house painted and would like to get some recommendations from other people out there.

We are wanting to paint to sell so would prefer to leave it in the hands of somebody who does it well (at a good price) as we have previously dabbled with the paint brush before and do not want to go down that path again.

Thank you 🙂

After reading RiotACT for a long time and listening to reviews about tradies, I just wanted to follow up. I contacted Dilan from Australian Premier Painting and can’t recommend him highly enough. He turned up when he said he would (early each time), quoted very reasonably and was thoroughly professional and polite to engage with.

I also tried to receive quotes from A&R painting – Rick came and looked at the house, but couldn’t follow through with the quote as he had won a big job. No worries – we want the house painted later in the year – could you send through a formal quote of the verbal one you gave us. No quote. Chased him with an email – no response.

And as for Milan from National Capital Painters – he never bothered to show up. He had gone home early that day ‘as it was raining’ and didn’t bother to contact me to cancel the appointment. Very unimpressed.

Again, can’t recommend Dilan highly enough. Very impressive.

Ok… so my wife and I painted out main bedroom!
Fast forward to the ensuing phone call to Milan at
A REALLY SUPERB JOB DONE on the rest of what we wanted to paint. He was even able to pass the “8 months pregnant and nesting” wifes demanding scrutineering.
Thankyou Milan … a fantastic result.
Oh and the price was brilliant too!

Zed, is that you? (-:

I also used Delan from Australian Premier Painting, thansk to other Rioters for the recommendation. He and his team did a great job inside my house. Will get them back to do some more painting soon as I’ve decided to change the trim in my house 🙂 I have to say they were some of the most polite and efficient tradies I have used ever. I have no affiliation with the company.

We strongly recommend Delan and his team from Australian Premier Painting. We found them on this site, they had the most competitive quote and they delivered against that quote. They were quick and clean and a pleasure to have in the house. They painted both interior and exterior of a reasonably large four-bedroom house – four days for each job.

We have no affiliation with the company.

Great site by the way – each of the four quotes we received based on recommendations here would have won the job, but Australian Premier Painting demonstrated value for money.

Last week I had my whole house painted by Australia’s Premier Painters and can highly recommend them. The workmanship was good, the gentleman were well mannered, they were clean, fast, and reasonably priced. We will be calling them for our external work too. I have no affiliation with this company.

A few people I am friends with have used the following guy who is punctual, highly professional, honest, undertakes and completes all painting work brilliantly and meticulously; the bonus is that he is inexpensive. His website is and email is

I would second Northsidechick in recommending nobody should hire Robees Painting Services. I had a terrible experience with him, he left paint mess everywhere, including the neighbours paving after cleaning his spray gun through the fence, mess all over my bathroom tiles, then he never returned to complete the job.
I should have reported him to fair trading, however I honestly did not want him to have the option to come back to my house to rectify the problems so I just finished it off myself and cleaned for weeks and weeks…. I am still livid about this now.

Allan Harding – 0418 656 607 in Weston Ck is a master painter & his work is excellent.

He is a friend but we have used him to paint some doors & timber frames & the job was first class

We did extensive research and got about 6 quotes before engaging Canberra Painting Services to paint the exterior of our house. The painters did a fabulous job, especially because it hadn’t been painted in 50 years and there was a bit of restoration work to be done too.

Canberra Painting Services weren’t the cheapest but they wern’t the most expensive either. They provided a detailed quote and are members of the Master Painters Association.

Have to say they wern’t great at communication. I often had to ring several times to speak to the bloke in charge and emails weren’t answered.

But we persisted and the results are great. We are thinking of asking them to come back and do the interior too.

Karl Allred of First Class Painting.

Does excellent work at a fair price, definatly compared to other local painting companies.

Contact Karl on 0421 763 600

Somebody you don’t want to hire is Robee’s Painting Service. The painter was so dodgy (on a few different counts) that he probably should have been reported but I was just happy to have him out of my house.

I can recall someone asking this once before and I’ll give the same recommendation I did then…

A & R Painting Service

Many people I know, and I, have used them on several jobs. They’re friendly, efficient and do excellent quality work at a great price.

A.P.S Painters has done some work for me and my brother in law which we were both really happy with. They painted inside of both house as well as the outside of one. Great job. Call Scotty on 0450 420 100

We have used Felix Modella for the outside of the house and family have used him for both inside and outside. Very happy with both the price and quality of the work.
