Customer Testimonials

We've always appreciated the professionalism of Paul's team and the speed & quality of the finish provided. This is the third time we've engaged Paul and this time it was every interior surface that was redecorated, including walls, architraves, ceiling, stairs, windows and doors. We have a 1930's character home and Paul's team spent a lot of time in the preparation, preparing walls and stripping back old paint as needed from the character panelled doors. The challenge for Paul's team was the coved ceilings where nothing is completely straight. They did a fantastic job with the wall papered feature walls that consisted of stripes and maps, the end result was fantastic. All our friends and family comment on what an amazing finish we have and want to know who the painters were.

Paul always communicated on dates, work to do, issues and concerns. His entire team were fantastic, in particular John who was friendly, professional and extremely hard working. Paul and his team are trustworthy and we cannot speak highly enough of their work and professionalism.

Paul is one of the few tradesman we would unreservedly recommend to anyone that wanted a quality outcome for paint & wall papering.

Michael & Christine Carr

I was introduced to Paul by my builder and ex-neighbour. I have found Paul and his team to be excellent. They are accurate in their estimating – both of cost and of time. They are punctual, totally trustworthy, great at keeping me up to date with progress and I have found their decorating suggestions to be spot on. Don has been amazing – his attention to detail and end of day tidy up is second to none. I highly recommend Paul and the team.

Carolyn Naylor

Paul Schirnack and his team stripped and painted the exterior of our villa recently, along with repainting one bedroom and all the interior windows. Our house had not been stripped back for many years and the sash windows were also painted shut. Of the three painters who quoted for our job, Paul was the only one who understood exactly what we wanted and the quality of finish we expected. The house was stripped to bare boards, the windows removed (repaired and rehung by a builder that Paul arranged), then everything was prepped and repainted. His team were always on time, tidy and easy to have around. Despite the weather presenting some obstacles, the team worked hard to get the job done. Their attention to detail and quality of finish was exacting. Communication with both Paul and his deputy was good throughout. We are very pleased with the result and would highly recommend Paul’s services.

Jane Davidson-Ladd and Simon Ladd, September 2013

Recently Paul Schirnack and his team painted the whole exterior of our house, and they redecorated most of the interior as well. All this work was done to our complete satisfaction. The house now looks better than it even has before. We were impressed by the team's ability to tackle work where the access was quite difficult. Their attention to detail resulted in a top rate job, including wallpapering and the restoration of badly stained woodwork. They are pleasant and cheerful to have around, and we found them completely trustworthy.

Robin & Janie Gummer

We are more than happy to provide a written testimonial for Paul and his team as we have personally recommended him to friends and business associates a number of times. Paul was introduced to us fifteen years ago and have used the team at the business and we have had interior and exterior work at our home (and beach house) on a number of occasions. What we like:

  • Paul's assessment of the job followed by straight forward comments about the difficulties and possible problems followed by constructive solutions
  • Good advice on colour schemes
  • Set dates adhered to
  • Flexible to our personal needs
  • Really good tradesmen staff
  • Daily updates on progress and clear communication of problems, if they arise during the job (such as rotten weatherboards on the latest job at our house) which caused rescheduling and additional work
  • Clear and concise billing
  • We are just not another job for Paul and his team – they care about us and they care that they have done a top rate job

Graeme & Marguerite McDonald

We have used Paul and his team for several home and commercial painting jobs and have always found his standard of workmanship, and his professionalism, as absolutely top-notch. We have recommended him unreservedly to many of our friends, and he has always performed with distinction.

Richard Adams

I can highly recommend Paul and his men to anyone wanting a reliable, honest and thoroughly professional team to work inside or outside their home. They go the extra mile to provide an excellent service with a minimum of disruption. I have no hesitation in referring them to anyone looking at employing their services.

Zoran and Sonya

We have used Paul Schirnack and his team to paint our home at Lewin Road Epsom for the past nearly 15 years. During that time he has painted the outside twice and the inside . Some rooms more than once . We won't allow anyone else to do the painting and decorating in our home. He and the team are such excellent works and so skilful and thorough.. They are easy to have around and so punctual . We are more than happy to recommend them to others which we have done often.
