    "Willie and one staff member completed some internal rot repair and painting, and some external waterproofing on some bay windows in my Bungalow. He was very professional to deal with. He was excellent at communicating when we were to expect him, always arrived on time, and completed the job quickly despite the rain. The work was completed to a high standard. I can highly recommended Willie and his team."

    "After doing some research on this website and calling a number of different painters I decided to contract Mr Willy to paint the exterior of our double garage. Mr Willy claiming to be a Master Painter and the good reviews definitely contributed to my overall decision making on which painter to choose. Mr Willy did a pretty average job overall, he first light sanded the walls, brushed off the dust, he used masking tape (paid extra for that). There was one misunderstanding where Mr Willy wrote on the quote painting the garage walls only which excluded the exterior window frame which I didn't pick up when I signed the quote, so my bad. However, from my understanding I contracted Mr Willy to paint the exterior of the garage and naturally believed the small window frame was automatically included but Mr Willy agreed to paint it at no extra charge the next day. Unfortunately there was a light rain shower and the bottom bit of the window frame has rain spots all over it so now I will need to repaint it myself as it looks pretty bad. And from what I saw the window frame was only partially sanded so not the best. Also the bare timber was not primed as highly recommended. I also like to point out that the quote stated washing the surfaces before painting which I did myself free of charge after Mr Willy did the quote so that saved Mr Willy 4-5 hours of his time plus he would have had to wait until the next day for the walls to dry. When I was told that the second coat was almost done on the walls I walked around the garage and pointed out a few holes that were not filled during prep time which Mr Willy fixed up the next day. Perhaps Mr Willy should have done a check before starting to paint or even after the first coat and filled all the missed holes and cracks!. So the quality control is non-existent. Also, some of the spots where the holes which were filled up were not sanded that well and the patches are now pretty visible which looks a bit tacky. I believe in "If a job is worth doing, it's worth doing well". If there is a different price point between doing the job properly and doing it just acceptable then I should have been given the option and I would have been happy to pay a little bit more to have it done properly. Would I use Mr Willy again Certainly not. I just expected more attention to detail and quality control from a Master Painter and for the money I paid. UPDATE 19/03/2016 I have now done a close up inspection of the paint job and I discovered that the underneath of some of the weatherboards were not painted at all. Whether this was an oversight or couldn't be bothered either way it looks sloppy. I have taken photos as evidence of the missed spots. I am pretty disappointed to say the least since I've now gone around the garage and done quite a bit of touching up. In response to Afina's reply below: No separate price was offered or mentioned for painting the door and window frame. The claim that Mr Willy had to purchase $220 of additional equipment for this project is not true since Mr Willy used his ladder to get on the verandah roof which is 2m high and used an old wooden board to walk on. And in fact I was charged $150 extra for scaffold on roof and now I wonder why I was charged for that since no scaffolding was used on the roof."
    Afina responded:
    ""In response: 1) I did give Mr Christian a price for the door and the window separate to walls. He said he wanted to go ahead with the walls and I made a point of asking "just the walls, not the door and window?". So this was reflected in the quote. 2) Mr Christian had said he already washed the walls, but when customers tell us they have done something towards the prep, we like to make sure it's up to painting standard. Therefore, we allow a little bit extra to cover this as we don't want to annoy our customers with putting the price up every time we do something extra. So not the 4-5 hours Mr Christian suggests. 3) We filled the big holes prior to painting, then painted, which allows us to see more of the smaller holes. The Master painters guide on this is to view the weatherboards from no less than a meter away. 4) We gave a guide price over the phone, but when Willy viewed the job it should have increased by $400 because of the steep height factor (not standard). But, being the rather compliant person that he is, Willy just decided he would do it at that price. We did not charge Mr Christian for any of the height equipment and had to purchase $220 of additional equipment for this project that was never charged to Mr Christian. 5) We've always maintained a good level of communication with our customers who enjoy talking with and having a laugh with Willy. In fact, some of the toddlers at the houses we paint, really get excited when they see him. He is a very mellow, compliant person who likes to do his best for people. 6) In terms of offering different pricing points. Like most tradespeople, we try to meet the market and offer home owners the most competitive price we can. However when spot people that are of a introverted micro-managing, minute-detail personality type - we do reflect the extra work in the pricing. Unfortunately in this case we were rushed into proving a quick quote. I'm more than happy to answer any questions about our service.

    "We gave Willy and his team the contract to repair and paint the rotten wooden windows in our house. We were a bit apprehensive as the cost of the repair work was quite high and we had not used this company before so were very unsure on how the job would pan out. All our fears were quickly put the bed by the professionalism, efficiency and work ethic shown by Willy and his team. They arrived each day on time, put in a full day's work and cleaned up before they left. The quality of the end product was so good that our 50 year old windows looked like new! We were so impressed that we got Willy to plaster and paint our bathroom as well... and again he didn't disappoint.... the work was done to a very high standard. I highly recommend this company and would not hesitate to employ them again for any future work."

    "Willy and Afina helped me with and incredibly difficult painting job in my inner city apartment. They were undaunted by the challenges it presented and went far over what I would have expected any tradesperson to do to get the job completed. They were professional and a delight to deal with. They were fair and accurate with their quote and did an excellent job of the painting with absolutely no mess to deal with afterwards. I would highly recommend them. "

    "We chose 1st Rate Painters to paint the interior of our new home before we moved in. Afina and Willy came to see us at home and look through interior photos as we were unable to take them through the house we were moving to. They reassured us that they could do the job in the short time frame we gave them and gave us a quote that we were happy with. Willy was great to deal with, he and his team turned up on time and did a quick and flawless paint job throughout the house. He was easy to communicate with and made the whole process very easy. We would highly recommend 1st Rate Painters and will not hesitate to use them again in the future."

    "We had our bedroom walls painted which also involved sorting out some dings in the walls and painting the door frames and doors a different colour. 1st Rate checked what we wanted carefully, gave us some sensible advice on colour choice and did the job when they said they would. The result looks very nice and I'm happy to recommend them to anyone else."

    "Very happy with level and quality of service. 1st Rate Master Painters & Decorators responded to my query in the most timely manner, and undercut other similar services by a substantial amount of which by no means suggests that the service they provide is in any way less than other services. The only critique I can offer is that the price quote for the job kept changing as the complexity of the job unfolded which was a bit inconvenient, but was understandable. Other than that, great job!"
