How it works
How our home painting service process works
House painting for building maintenance and protection
A splash of paint has the power to transform any home, enhancing its curb appeal and adding value. It also protects surfaces from weathering and wear and tear, acting as a barrier against moisture, pests, and other damage. So whether your home improvement goals are for aesthetic or practical purposes, our team of experienced house painter contractors have you covered.
All residential painters we hire go through a thorough screening process before joining our team. We conduct face-to-face interviews and check references to ensure they have the necessary skills for the job. We also test their knowledge of the latest house painting techniques and technology, ensuring you receive a top-quality service from start to finish.
Interior and exterior painting
Whether you need the perfect shade of grey to compliment your new kitchen cabinets or a vibrant hue to add some personality to your exterior walls, we can help. Sidepost offers a complete range of house painting services, revamping your interior and exterior spaces with the colours of your choice.
Our painters use only the highest quality paints and materials, so your paint finish lasts for the long-haul. They are also aware of the importance of proper preparation, taking care to protect your floors, furniture and other surfaces from paint splatters and damage.
Residential house painting near you
Whether you live in a densely populated city or a more rural area, we have house painters across Australia ready to service your home. We understand that no two homes are identical, so we provide recommendations based on your specific preferences and local trends which boost property value. Once you’re happy with your colour selection, we’ll get to work transforming your space.
If, for any reason, you’re not completely satisfied with the result, please don’t hesitate to let us know. Our 7-year service guarantee for all interior and exterior painting services means we’ll return to make any necessary adjustments at no extra cost to you.

Boost your home's resale value with a fresh coat of paint. We can repaint any exterior surface, including doors, windows, siding, trim, gutters and downspouts. Not only will this improve your home's curb appeal, it will also protect it from weather damage and wear and tear.
A fresh coat of paint can do wonders for an old fence, making it look brand new again. We can work with any type of fence, including wood, chain link and vinyl. So instead of opting for a replacement that will cost you more in the long run, let us give your fence a facelift.

My DIY efforts just weren't cutting it, so I decided to hire a professional painting company. I'm glad I chose Sidepost! The team was punctual, professional and did an amazing job. My home looks brand new!
I was a bit hesitant to spend the money on professional painting, but it was worth every penny. The painters were very friendly and did an excellent job. I would definitely recommend Sidepost to anyone.
I needed my rental property painted before the new tenants moved in and Sidepost's home painting services did a great job. They were able to work around my schedule and the place looks fantastic. I will be using them again in the future.
Sidepost not only painted by home but also gave me some great advice on how to make it more energy efficient. I'm so happy with the results and will be recommending them to all my friends
Decided to hire Sidepost instead of painting our house ourselves and so glad we did! The difference in efficiency, and quality is night and day. Trust me, they know what they're doing.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How much does it cost to hire a painter?
A: The hourly rate for painters in Australia ranges from $35-$45 per hour. However, the project's total cost will depend on the size and scope of the job. Larger homes with more rooms and furnishings will typically cost more to paint.
Q: How much does it cost to paint a house exterior in Australia?
A: Several factors will affect the cost of exterior house painting in Australia, including your property's size, location, and condition. Price points can range from $3,000 to $30,000, so it’s always best to get an accurate quote before paying someone to do the job.
Q: Do I need to be home while the painters are working?
A: You don't need to be present while the painters are working. However, you’ll need to provide them with access to your home via a spare key or access code. As the job progresses, we’ll be sure to regularly update you.
Q: What type of paint do you use?
A: We use high-quality, low-VOC (volatile organic compounds) paint from top-rated manufacturers like Dulux, Valspar, and Taubmans. In addition to enhancing your home's appearance, we ensure that the paint we use is safe for your family and the environment.
Q: Can I buy the paint and only pay for labour?
A: Yes, however, you may find that purchasing the paint yourself is more expensive than having us provide it. This is because we receive discounted prices from our suppliers.
Q: Should I get a painter for my home's interior or paint myself?
A: While it's entirely feasible for a person to DIY paint their own home, we recommend hiring a professional for the best results. They will have the experience and expertise to get the job done right in a fraction of the time.
Q: How long does it take to paint the exterior or a house?
A: Our painters generally take three to four days to the average-sized house with two teams. Your standard house will have one to two stories and 2-4 bedrooms. Larger homes that exceed these dimensions can take up to five to six days to be painted.
Q: How should I prepare my home for painting?
A: For interior surfaces, we recommend that you remove all personal items, such as pictures and vases, from the walls and surfaces that we'll be painting. After placing drop cloths, we'll prepare your surface by sanding, patching, and priming it. We'll also pressure wash the surface to remove any dirt or debris for exterior surfaces.
Q: What if I'm not satisfied with my paint job?
A: It's fairly common for amateur painters to make mistakes. The result being your interior or exterior surface is left with cracks, bubbles or paint flakes. While we take every precaution to avoid these mistakes, we'll make it right if you're not happy with our work. We want you to be satisfied with our services and recommend us to your friends and family.
Q: Can I reschedule or cancel my painting appointment?
A: Yes, and it's effortless to do so. After logging in and accessing your dashboard, you'll be able to view and manage all of your upcoming appointments. From there, you can reschedule or cancel an appointment with ease. We're here to accommodate you and make the process as stress-free as possible.
Q: What if I need to change the scope of work?
A: If you need to make changes to the scope of work, we'll be more than happy to do so. We recognise that things come up, and sometimes you need to make changes on the fly. We'll work around these changes to still provide the goods. However, there may be an additional fee depending on the request and how labour-intensive it is. We'll let you know if that's the case before we get started, so there are no surprises.
