What do I have to do in order to get ready for the painters?
When we come in to paint your home we are expecting to handle everything ourselves. We move all of the furniture into the middle of the room, remove pictures from the walls and take down any window fittings.

All furniture and belongings are carefully covered and all floors are protected with the proper drop cloths during painting. Upon completion of the painting we will place all furniture back in the location that it was removed from and re-hang pictures and window treatments.

How is my furniture protected during painting?
After moving the furniture into the middle of the room it will be covered in plastic. All floors will be protected by canvas drop cloths.

What kind of paint is used?
We only use top of the line paints and primers for our customers. Dulux is our preferred brand.

How do I get an estimate?
You may either call us directly in Brisbane or send an email and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

What kind of surface preparation is done?
All holes are filled and sanded. All cracks are properly scraped out, filled and sanded. Caulking is inspected around all windows and frames, doors and door frames and re-caulked as needed. Crown molding, chair rail etc. are all caulked and properly prepared. All nail pops are repaired and sanded. Any water stains, crayon marks etc. are sealed before painting and grease and heavy dirt accumulations are cleaned. Any mildew that is present will be cleaned prior to painting.

How often should you have to paint the interior?
There are too many factors to take into consideration, and each home can be different. However a good quality job done by a professional crew of painters under normal conditions should last anywhere from 7-10 years. Call us and we will be happy to evaluate your particular situation and offer you a more precise answer.

How often should you have to paint the exterior?
There are many factors that will contribute to the life of a paint job. (Daily sun exposures, amount of shrubbery, moisture presence, soffit and gable venting, etc.) But as a general rule a new paint job in our climate should last anywhere from 7-10 years. But this is a general rule. There are just too many differing factors to list here.

Do you paint decks and fences?
Yes, we also apply staining, sealing and all other types of protective coatings.
