FAQS

I've received a few quotes and I have some prices that are high & some that are low. Why is there such a variation in quotes ?

Yes, we hear this often in our industry. Ultimately it will come down to the level of thoroughness, attention to detail & quality of the finished product. For example, the amount of time that goes into the preparation of a surface & the subsequent coats it receives will all reflect the final product. Our quotes are in depth & clearly list the inclusions, which should enable you to compare the prices. Most importantly, we follow the Australian Guidelines of Painting and Decorating which goes hand in hand with the Paint manufacturers warranty.

You don’t have to accept the highest bid but never select a painter solely on price either. You need to feel confident and informed about what you are getting for the money you are being asked to pay.

Is your company a member of the Master Painters Association ?

Yes, Balwyn Master Painters have been a member of the Master Painters Association for nearly 20 years, our membership Number is 3703. Most importantly, we follow the Australian Guidelines of Painting and Decorating (AS/NZ 2311:2009) which goes hand in hand with the Paint manufacturer’s warranty. This will allow your home to have a high grade protective coating(s), maintaining its value for many years, without costly maintenance that would be required for a property not painted to this standard.

Hiring a certified professional contractor will save you a lot of time and money in the long run. There will always be a balance of cost, quality and schedule, so consider which is most important to you. .

How do people choose colours? I can't make up my mind.

Choosing colours can be bewildering. Each manufacturer offers thousands of different colours and fashions and trends can come and go. We recommend that you start by asking yourself what colours you like (e.g. which ones are dominant in the clothes you buy? What are the colours of houses in your neighbourhood that you like?). Light shades will usually make a space look bigger, darker ones can add warmth to a room.

A sense of harmony can be obtained in many different ways. If you need more advice we can refer you to one of our Interior designers that we regularly work with. .

Do you have references?

Yes, we have some online references in our testimonials section, we also keep written references on file for those who ask. We also have a Gallery section on our Website, displaying the different projects we have undertaken.

How do I maintain my property once it is painted?

The only maintenance required would be to keep the surfaces clean. This is generally done with a low water pressure cleaner, and wiping surfaces with warm water.

Do not use chemicals or detergents to clean surfaces, this will destroy the surfaces.
