Are you looking at doing some DIY painting work but not too sure if you can achieve a good quality finish or actually save money?

While some people prefer DIY painting because of cost-savings and the satisfaction of having done the job with their own two hands. DIY painting certainly isn’t for everyone, many people are time poor and would simply rather spend their weekends catching up with family, getting in some much-needed downtime rather than facing the mad crowds at hardware stores, setting up drop sheets, cutting in and glossing and then repeating… and that’s only two layers??

To DIY or to hire a professional is an age-old question and really boils down to one question, what is your time worth? Because you will be sacrificing it in order to get the job the done right.

Obviously, we’re biased towards hiring a professional painter and that’s what we are ‘professional painters’. In the long run, we believe you will save money and in the immediate, we know you will save time. One of the benefits is an excellent professional finish across all painted surfaces, that includes the tricky bits and unusual surfaces and usually all completed in a fraction of the time it would have taken you. The real benefit, however, is the time and stress you just cut out of your life.

Trying to guess if these colours match and go with each other can be very time consuming and stressful.


When a project may take us two weeks to complete, DIY’ers could be months. Professional Painters do not need to tape around windows, doors etc. to obtain a professional finish.

Painting projects could take many months to finish with only limited hours each day or weekends to do them in, causing continual disruption and paint odour fumes. Many DIY’ers will need to tape around windows and doors to obtain a good finish, again taking much valuable time and effort.

Cleaning and Moving Furniture

We will move your furniture for you to gain access and we will put it back the way it was. We will leave your premises tidy and clean each day.

You will need someone with you to move heavy furniture around. You have been painting all day and now it is time to clean up, very exhausting.

Professional Final Inspections

Our Supervisor will meet with you on-site and go through all the required painting works are to your satisfaction and will touch-up anything that we may have missed.

You own inspection of your own painting works could miss things, causing you unnecessary extra time and maybe extra paint costs to touch-up anything missed.

There is no guarantee offered when doing DIY painting works.
