Choosing a Gold Coast Painter

If the task of house painting seems too much then it’s worth considering a professional Gold Coast painter for your new house, renovation or repaint. Professional painting contractors are equipped with professional quality tools and materials that will save you a lot of time and trouble in the long run.

In the past the Gold Coast was a very transient place. It was easy for people to locate here and set up shop in whatever field they chose. This was especially true for some sectors of the building industry, painting being one of them. Unfortunately unwary customers would pay good money only to be disappointed with the outcome. There was no way of getting their money back or making these amateur painters accountable for a job done badly.

In recent years the Gold Coast has grown in population, people are flocking here for our wonderful weather and beaches. The demand has never been higher for housing in this ever expanding city which has brought with it many benefits.

The Queensland Building Services Authority are the governing body over all Gold Coast trades and are responsible for licensing tradesmen in Queensland. It’s crucial to only hire a Queensland BSA licensed painter, this will protect you but more importantly it tells you that this painter is reputable and professional.

If a painter has been around for a number of years it’s safe to say they are credible. The best way to determine this is to ask for references and perhaps ring former clients and even drive past previous completed jobs.

Make sure that the painter you choose uses the best quality paints available. Our climate on the Gold Coast is extremely hot. We experience scorching sun and raging storms. Exterior paint especially has to withstand our harsh Gold Coast climate. Only the best quality paints contain UV protectors to prevent peeling, flaking and blistering of the paint. A good tradesman will only use the best materials.

It’s important to get the painter to your home for a personal quote. This will tell you a lot. Not only will you be given a price for the job but you will soon see if the painter knows what he’s talking about. There are always latest trends with interior decorating, paint colours and techniques. The Gold Coast is a city full of the latest modern architectural and design styles. A good painting tradesman will be up to date with all new products and finishes. He should be able to advise you on colours and make suggestions on different finishes.

When getting a quote from a there can be quite a variation in price. The cheapest quote can often mean the painter might cut corners with preparation or use cheaper quality materials and paints. When considering a quote don’t just choose on price alone, take everything into consideration first.

Finally you want to be sure that the painter has insurance and that he will provide you with a written quote and a contract.
