Master Painters in Artarmon

In 2016 we won the Heritage and Restoration (Commercial) Repaint between $50,000 and $100,000 for the work we completed for the Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia at 207 Albion Street, Surry Hills at the Master Painters Awards for excellence night in September. This award is a highly prestigious award that is well recognised in the painting industry. We were also finalists in the Multi-Unit (Residential) Repaint over $100,000 category.

During the year prior, our company won the Multi-Unit (Residential) Repaint Under $100,000 for the work we completed on ‘Stradbroke’ – 4 Gladswood Gardens, Double Bay.

“The attention to detail was second to none on this lovely project with care taken to work with strata in
accommodating the client with removal of security bars and other carpentry works in the program.
Good cutting in and overall effect. A very satisfied client.” – The Master Painter, Spring 2015 (Magazine)

We were one of a very select few that made it to the finals and have been described by the judges as “the best of the best” in our category. We could not be more proud of the team and always encourage them to keep up the good work.

In 2017, our winning streak continued with us placing first in the Residential Single Dwelling Repaint Under $10,000 category for a property in Glebe that we have completed multiple jobs at.

On top of that, we have also won awards for Domestic Heritage & Restoration (Open Value), Residential Multi-Unit Repaint (Open Value) and Domestic Single Dwelling (Over $ 20,000) just to name a few.

I wish to thank you for the high standard of work carried out at the above unit building. The careful preparation has provided an excellent result. Your workmen were considerate and helpful at all times. You gave a commencement date and an outline of progression of the work and kept to it - something rare these days. Your inclusive service of repairing any damage to the paint work when the carpet went down, on completion of painting, was very much appreciated. With all good wishes for your continued success. Mrs Ramsay

Thanks so much for a great job done on the painting a couple of weeks ago. I was really impressed with the results and the two gentlemen who did the job were total professionals. Helen - Dover Heights

We must thank you for your good advice, the quality of the painting done in our apartment and the courteous and professional way in which you quote. Denise and Peter – Mosman

On behalf of Carol and myself, can we say a really big THANK YOU for doing such an outstanding job. The house seems empty without someone from the \'Tony Isgrove\' team waving a paint brush or roller about the place!! We knew when we returned from the USA, that the house would need a complete face-lift, however, what we didn\'t know was that we would be able to find someone who not only takes a real pride in the quality of work he and his team produce, but also has a team of guys that were a pleasure to have around the house for what amounted to over five weeks. On top of all that, you had the patience to endure some early colour changes, gave us some great advice and guidance, and left the place clean and tidy at the end of every day. The house looks outstanding inside and out, and the end result is way above expectations. You can rest assured that we will be telling all our friends who did the job, and be back to you for more whenever the time comes around. Please pass on our thanks and regards to the team. If you ever need to show someone the quality of your work, just tell them to call us and we will be happy to show them around! Thanks once again for a job very well done. Eddie and Carol

I would like to say that I have been really impressed with your outfit, for the quality of the work and the professionalism. Both Nick and Malcolm were really good at what they did to make the house into what it is, and I appreciated their courtesy and consideration throughout. I would be happy to recommend you to anyone who asks. Please express my thanks to Nick and Malcolm. Christine Arman

Your company is to be congratulated for the outstanding professional service provided at a level which sets new standards for the home renovation trades in Australia. Amy I express our particular appreciation to the company representatives who undertook the work – not only was the work of the highest quality, but their courtesy and attention to our particular needs was exemplary. Angus – Turramurra

A really excellent job, great guys and superbly well executed and highly professional, best finish work. It was a pleasure having Steve, Mario, Neil and Mario (junior) with us Quentin and Ann – Cremorne

You must be complimented on your tradesmen! It is very rare these days to experience this politeness and quality! Robyn Armstrong - Warrawee

It was a pleasure working with you and your team last week, let us tell you that we are most happy with the work done in our home. You gave us a quote, we fixed a time for commencing and completion of works, quote and timing were kept accurately and the quality of the paints and painting is first class. Further more, the two men who have been with us for five days, namely Brian and Damien, were not only efficient but also most careful with our furniture and other belongings, and most helpful when removing and putting back our very heavy pieces of furniture and other decorations. We thank you for all this! Please, feel free to show this letter anyone who might be interested, and we are only too happy to speak about our experiences should we be contacted. Bill and Barbara

I have been asked by the executive committee to write to you expressing the satisfaction of the committee with the standard of the recent paintworks your firm undertook at Shipmates, and to commend, through you, Bruce and the rest of your staff for the efficient and courteous manner in which they went about their various tasks. There has not been one complaint made to me concerning either the standard of paintwork throughout of the condition (ie carpets, cleanliness, etc) of any apartment after painting was completed. The exterior and common areas of the building were completed to a high standard. The committee appreciates that such an undertaking presents the successful tenderer with numerous logistical problems, not the least of which is the co-ordination of the various occupants in order to access their apartments at time convenient to both parties. This was accomplished with the absolute minimum of fuss and, amazingly, without complaint. All occupiers I have spoken to have only praise for your employees, and say that they attended their duties in a competent, courteous and cheerful manner. My almost daily dealings with your foreman Bruce left me with the same impression. It is a pleasure to have such a large job completed without a hiccup or murmur of dissatisfaction. It certainly stands in stark contrast to the recent spalling renovation and rectification works carried out at Shipmates, where many complaints were made by occupiers concerning the action (and inactions) of the building firm. The committee takes this opportunity to thank you and your staff for the manner in which you performed your contract with Ship mates… I confirm that this letter is an unsolicited comment concerning the efficiency of your firm and is written at the insistence of the committee, after discussion at its most recent meeting. You may use this letter for any purpose you wish, and the members of the Shipmates Committee are only too willing to personally commend your painting services to anyone who cares to contact us. Chairman – Shipmates Executive Committee- Collaroy Beach

On behalf of my fellow residents I would like to take the opportunity to express our appreciation in the manner in which Tony and his team respected our privacy and worked around each of our individual day to day needs. We are very pleased with the quality of the painting, giving a fresh look to our Gouldsbury Manor property Ed – Mosman

We are very happy with the level of attention to detail and quality of paintwork. Steve and his team have done an outstanding job! Leddie Hector – Lane Cove

Commonly Asked Questions


Q: Is it possible to paint over existing wallpaper?
A: This is not recommended as the wallpaper may bubble.

Q: I’m planning to have the interior of my home painted and the existing hardwood floors refinished. Should we paint first and then finish the floors, or the other way around?
A: We would recommend painting first as we can recommend a very good floor sander who won’t damage your paintwork.

Q: We have a lot of painted floorboards in our house that are quite uneven and would like to remove the paint so that we can stain them. Would we be able to sand them or will sanding the floor damage our uneven boards?
A: I would recommend you contact a floor sander who specialises in this type of work for the best results.

Q: My living room walls are covered with dark, grooved wood panelling. Is it possible to fill in the gaps between the boards so that I can paint or wallpaper over it?
A: Not really. I would recommend you have the panelling removed or gyprocked over to get the smooth surface you will need.

Q: We have a pressed tin ceiling that has several layers of paint on it. How do you recommend we go about stripping the paint?
A: I would recommend a non-toxic paint stripper.
