I employed John to paint the inside of my house for me. This consisted of 3 bedrooms, a rumpus room, living, dining, kitchen, walk through pantry and large laundry upstairs. In addition there was the stairway to the downstairs entrance, and a bedroom, toilet and living area downstairs. Not a small job by any means. I have to say I was very impressed at his workmanship. Not only did he work methodically, but his preparation and painting was done with meticulousness. Spreadsheets covered the floor of the whole house from the time he began until he completely finished the job. In addition, he went out of his way to help solve other problems that needed to be addressed, e.g., putting in skirting, closing off gaps, fixing locks and removing shelving.
I would definitely recommend John for any job. He is completely trustworthy, loyal and an honest tradesman.

After obtaining a number of quotes we chose to use the services of John Davies Painting for the exterior of our brick and tile unit in Northcote as we felt that his quote was fair and he understood that a quality job was Important to us within our budget.We were very pleased with our decision we made and even had both sets of neighbours and a friend take his contact details as they also noticed his high level of workmanship.
As the unit had not been painted for a considerable length of time (at least 8 years) there was a lot of preparation to undertake, including the repair of rot around one window in particular. We also had a couple of broken windows that needed to replaced by the glazier and he was very accommodating with this.John was extremely thorough in the preparation of all surfaces, stripping the paint back to the wood and ensuring a clean and dry surface.
John was very tidy and methodical in his approach when painting, masking all the windows and even putting drop cloths over the garden to protect the plants. As this job was being completed during July, John ensured that he didn't start too early in the morning, nor finish too late giving the longest drying period possible. A couple of small jobs were also carried out by John in addition to the main exterior painting and we were grateful for this extra service.
We are extremely satisfied with the job John carried out on our unit and will definitely use his services again in the future. I have no hesitation in recommending John Davies to anyone requiring a high standard or workmanship, punctuality and meticulous attention to detail.
I would like to take the opportunity to offer a formal recommendation for John Davies Painting. Western Mailing contacted John Davies after a supplier suggested to use his professional service for an internal paint job and he finished the job to our complete satisfaction.
John was very flexible in terms of working hours and was also willing to sacrifice evenings or weekends if this would have been necessary. He was working in a very professional way and even though he was working on weekdays and in busy areas, he did not cause any disruption to our daily business.
I was coordinating the painting project and i recommend John Davies Painting to any other business. John's flexible availability, his professionalism from the first contact to the finishing of the project and his personality are a gain to every company.
John painted the outside window frames of my house. He was quick and efficient in preparing a quote., and was able to start the job immediately. Preparation work was carried out professionally, taking care of plants in the process, and cleaning at the end of each day.
John did an awesome job painting the windows. He is a nice friendly guy that gets the job done.
John worked on interior house painting for us for a few months. We found him easy to deal with, reliable, honest, tidy and fussy with detail in a good way. He has a lot of knowledge to advice regarding what paints to use and has the paint equipment to do a job thoroughly well. Other trades, also working at the house, have referred their clients to John.
We would definitely recommend John.

My complete renovation/redecorating project went very smoothly and painlessly thanks to John Davies Painting.My 46 year old home was very tired,inside and out.Stage one of my home rejuvenation began last year,which was remedying a diabolical exterior cedar restaining attempt by a "cowboy".It was a Major!Thankfully i had the good fortune to have John step up to the challenge.The cedar weatherboards were painstakingly stripped and sanded back to the original timber over a period of weeks then built up from there to a fantastic paint finish that far exceeded my expectations.
Stage Two:The Interior.At the initial meeting John provided a very realistic timeline and quote for the project.All deadlines were met,even when the inevitable small problem arose here and there which is to be expected.
John has an affable,no nonsense,practical approach to his work and would have to be the most reliable and honest Tradesperson i have ever hired/engaged in all my 30 plus years of home ownership.
John's meticulous attention to detail and pride in his work shines through in the finished product.He does it once and does it right,there are absolutely no shortcuts.Would not hesitate to recommend John Davies Painting to anyone wanting a professional,quality result.
