    “Marc and his team led by Isaac were called in at short notice to paint both the interior and exterior. They knocked the job out in a few days and we fantastic to deal with. Nothing was a problem and they even did some bathroom sealing and never charged me. It’s generally rare to see a Manager / Owner mucking in but Marc did as rough weather was approaching the next day. Highly recommend. ”

    “Marc and Isaac deliver a fabulous product. Have used Paradise painters for one external and several internal house repaints over the years. The last project at the end of 2018 required the full internal repaint of the inside of our 260 square metre home.
    From outline. quote, negotiations, execution and discussion of additional extras the process was professional and a fun experience with a positive outcome. The finish obtained and the thoughtful way the team moved through the house to cater for our needs further supported our continuing preference for using Marc and Paradise Painting.Always a pleasure to deal with and delivery of such excellence is a credit to Marc and his team.”

    “Great communication, professional work, nice guys. 10/10 would recommend.My partner and I had just moved into a new house and wanted some of the coving replaced. I contacted no less than a dozen contractors and got some pretty mixed results. We don’t have great access as we’re down a footpath and we were looking at 2-4 weeks before commencement of the job.

    Marc called me back and was like, how about my team shows up tomorrow? We can be done in 3 days if that suits? Needless to say we jumped at the opportunity.

    His team came in and were super professional – on time, communicative and friendly – great guys. They did a professional job very quickly.

    Any time we require any plastering or painting, we’re going to ring Marc first thing.

    Thanks again to Marc, Isaac, and the Paradise Team.”

    “Marc was courteous and professional to deal with. His two painters were fantastic – lovely guys who went above and beyond what we had agreed to (thank you very much!). The quality of the work was excellent, better than I had imagined, and I felt very comfortable with these two gentlemen in my home. Thank you again for a great job – I would highly recommend this company!”

    “Absolutely stellar service provided by this firm. Our house required significant remedial works to the exterior cladding. Paradise Painting helped us find a local builder, who worked in with the painters to get the job done to a very high standard, in a very short time. Despite terrible weather conditions, they managed to deliver a beautiful paint job inside and out. Their crew were polite, professional and tidy. I recommend them without reservation!
