Recommendations for painter and decorator

By dizzel88 - 21 September 2014 9

Can anyone give me a good recommendation for a painter to paint the inside of my house? I want someone who is careful and thorough with their work and can recommend the right paint and colours for the various areas of the house. Eg wet areas etc… and cleans up thoroughly after themselves and is going to provide a reasonable quote for a two storey townhouse.

Thanks
L

Hi dizzel88,

We were lucky as the painter we got recommended by our neighbor was great. He visited our place and gave us insights on few colour combination we could try and also followed by a quick quote in couple of days.

Now the place looks good and we really enjoy the color combination.

The mob we had was http://www.peterthepainter.com.au and we even have them bookmarked as well.

Scott from Trend Painters did a great job on my house, he even helped with picking the colours. Scott was really polite, reliable and passionate about painting. His number is 0450 420 100

Good luck with that one.. If you think painting is ‘easy’, give it a try yourself. A good painter, who uses good quality paint (Dulux etc), will charge you accordingly.

Like with most trades, you get what you pay for.

Pretty sure the OP asked for a REASONABLE quote, never said anything about a cheap price…
There is a difference.
And, you don’t always get what you pay for, unfortunately.

I can recommend someone not to use for definite – Robee from Robee’s Painting and Pergola Services.

He comes across as a lovely guy, very sweet and genuine, until you approach him with an issue or question, then its like unleashing the beast.

I’m not the kind of person who usually says anything bad about people but this was a particularly bad experience and I haven’t been the only one.

Ignore the comment above you most certainly do not get what you pay for. We recently had our tri level townhouse painted and we got 4 quotes. The range we were quoted was 8000 – 3000. The variation astounded us.

We went with Steven Weir at Preprite painting and I highly recommend him. He did an excellent job for the best price. We recommended him to friends who went ahead and used him as well and they too are very very happy.
