“It was an absolute pleasure working with you and your team. From the first inspection with you, then an extremely enjoyable and informative colour
consultation with Lisa followed up by the hardworking and ‘tuneful’ team of Luke and Brad – the whole experience was great.
The boys were respectful of noise being in a large apartment building and were very solutions orientated when challenges popped up that come with working in an old uneven building ! Great hard working guys who put the fun into my week 8 of renovation and look forward to seeing them for the final ‘polish.
With many thanks and kind regards.”

Andrew, New Farm

Gary, My husband and I were so thrilled with the quality of not only the painting job that your company completed for us, and its 10 year warranty, but also with the men who did so. Luke was so professional, polite and accommodating, and directed his team efficiently and with an eye for detail and quality which we most appreciated. Brad and Mark were also fantastic, quality, happy painters who made it a pleasure to have on our property.

Most of all their integrity and work ethic was so admirable. I felt completely comfortable and relaxed at all times knowing they were so reliable and dedicated.

Also your frequent calls, Gary, to check if all was going well and if I had any questions/complaints was reassuring that you had our best interests at heart and very professional.

All in all, a very happy, easy, professional experience and a fabulous paint job. Thanks so much.


Refreshing to find a company that is so passionate about delivering a quality outcome at a fair price. All the tradesmen are employed, not sub-contractors, and we polite, considerate and committed to quality. To have the managing director call regularly to check on our satisfaction as the job progressed was also impressive. All our special requests were handled promptly and happily. Happy to endorse Applied and Decorative Painting to any friends or family.


Gary, Darren, Cole and the rest of the team were all professional and supportive from start to finish. Our project was a full external house repaint at height and included some repairs to our timber handrails which had suffered weather damage over the years. Communication was excellent and nothing was to much of a problem for them.

Gavin, Indooroopilly

A dedicated and friendly team of professionals who provide a high standard of workmanship and left the site clean and tidy. Good value for money and good communication. The colour consultancy available to us was invaluable and we are thrilled with the results.


Prompt service, comitted to timely completion and neat, professional work. The staff were pleasant and friendly. I would reccommend this business to anyone in Brisbane.

Mart, Kedron

Just home from work and wanting to let you know how thrilled we are with the ceiling, you have certainly revived it to as new condition. Thank you for your professionalism and obvious skill in your trade, we are so very grateful to have benefited from your high quality work. Couldn’t recommend you highly enough!
Thank you again.  Very very happy

Steve, Chuwar

They were reasonably priced for a difficult job. Communicated well, did the job efficiently and in a timely manner. Very easy to deal with.

Mike, Lota

It was a pleasure to have our living room and kitchen ceiling and walls painted by Applied and Decorative Painting. Gary, Darren and Raj were very cooperative in arranging to do all the painting before the arrival of our overseas visitors. Gary’s help with colour choice was very much appreciated. Raj is a perfectionist and his painting has made such a difference to our living area. It is lighter, brighter and welcoming. I would recommend ADP and Raj for their friendly and professional service.

Margaret, St Johns Wood

What a difference this paint job made to my home!!! Raj and his onsite crew were fabulous – very professional, extensive experience and really helped me make sure the colour choices I made were just right!!!
Super flexible and great to work with!!! thanks Applied & Decorative Painting!!

Leah P., Chapel Hill

Darren was fantastic to deal with and knew exactly what our expectations were from the outset without trying to talk us into something that would make his life easier and not give us the results that we required. The lads that painted our job were on-time, courteous and friendly, there could be some further attention to detail but nothing that wasn’t corrected with a phone call to Darren. Overall a job well done on time and on Budget, what more could a client want?


Gary and Darren were great – clear communication, follow up and follow through. The group of painters who painted my home were so professional, neat and tidy, polite, trustworthy, on time and thoughtful regarding my pets and security. And the finished job is amazing – thank you. I would have no hesitation in recommending this company.

Robyn, Kenmore

Gary and his team are very well organised & professional. The painters arrived on-time each day and were very friendly. They did a wonderful job on my house!

jent303, New Farm

Gary and Darren are a pleasure to deal with. Scott and his team were a pleasure to have on site. Service was excellent, always in communication. Painters on time and trustworthy. I even left them in the house alone to lock up after without a worry. Couldn’t fault the work either. Would use again.

lyns495, Coorparoo

We had seen this company at work in other areas and were confident of their professional and great work but …. we were still just so impressed with the communication and recommendations along with great workmanship. We would recommend this company to anyone needing any job big or small done around their place.

We recently had both the interior and exterior of our home painted and are extremely satisfied with the result. Darren, Scott and his team really went out of their way to make the job an outstanding success. We can certainly recommend ADP for a quality and very professional result.
Gary Dyer , Carina Heights
Took two years to make the final decision of painting my house. Gary had been so patient in the two years and gave many advise. During the time, met 5-6 different painting companies, but still decided to go with ADP. I am so happy I made this decision, which turns out fantastic results. I will recommend ADP to any one I know who needs do painting job and I will use ADP again in the future if any paint work need to do for myself.
Nick Nie , Ascot
The painting looks great – but it shows up my old furniture! It’s really brightened up my property and makes it look much more spacious.
Gary and the painters were excellent. They were trustworthy and reliable and completed the job in double-quick time. I will have to get them back because of a track on the curtains making them hard to close, but that will be easily solved and I was very glad that I didn’t have to remove the curtains!
Lisa was also highly-experienced with very good taste.
Lisa, Auchenflower
Simply one of the best tradespeople/painters I have dealt with in a long time (or ever).
Prompt, professional, tech savie (online quotes) and did a wonderful job.
Would recommend them to anyone and everyone. Will definitely use again.
Robbie McLean, Richmond Rd, Morningside
Wow what can I say but simply fantastic!! Had my house painted internally, big house painted! Service was excellent, always in communication, painters on time and trustworthy! I would recommend everyone to use ADP they’re the best!! Thank you so much!! Love the work!
Greg Bishell, Grays Rd, Gaythorne
I write to compliment you and your team on a superb job in repairing storm damage to our house in St Lucia.
Although it was a fairly small job, our interactions with you and your colleagues was of the highest professional and technical standard in every respect.
We were extremely impressed by the way that you communicated with us at every stage, that you and your staff came when advised, and did what was agreed, and at the highest standard.
We were especially impressed by the way that we were treated – with courtesy and consideration at all times – it was a delight to have your staff at our home.
We were also impressed by the way that the tradesman (Luke) treated his apprentice (Jack): Jack was treated with respect, told clearly what to do and how, given constructive feedback and clear explanations about the task being undertaken.
My own work has involved teaching young people, and I found it refreshing and highly impressive to see how this young man was being helped to learn his trade, and how he responded positively to that help.
Over the years we have had many tradesmen at our place, but none have been as impressive as those from your company.
We will certainly call on ‘Applied and Decorative Painting’ when next we have some work.
Trevor Heath, St Lucia
I have known Gary Wilson from Applied & Decorative Painting for 12 years . In this period I have found Gary to be trustworthy, reliable and always presents himself and his business in the highest professional manner.
Gary always ensures his customers are happy with his workmanship on his projects, including an excellent communicator that ticks all boxes when a project is in progress and also follows Dulux paint manufactures specifications in all situations. Gary always fulfills his customers’ expectations and more, I have experienced.
Gary is a true professional and I have no hesitation in recommending Applied & Decorative Painting, on any job that he feels he can complete and to the highest quality standard his business always seems to deliver.
Applied & Decorative Painting are very experienced in quality repaints in the residential, commercial, insurance and real estate market segments, and including body corporate work. Applied & Decorative Painting have been recognized by Dulux year on year as a professional well-oiled business that always aims to deliver the highest levels of customer satisfaction and workmanship.
Jason Osborn, Dulux Trade QLD
We engaged Applied Painting to undertake the external painting of a large, land mark Queenslander. We signed up with Applied Painting for three reasons. Firstly, Gary’s staff are his employees – not sub contractors – and this shone through with a great work ethic and respectfulness at all times. Secondly, Gary himself struck us as genuinely customer focussed when he quoted on our job. Importantly, this focus and care for his staff was demonstrable throughout the job. Thirdly, we like Dulux paints, and Applied Painting is Dulux accredited!
The work was performed faultlessly. The preparation of timber and other surfaces prior to painting was really good. The on-site supervisor Lee was also a good handyman so he could attend to the unexpected little things that arose, all making for a particularly smooth and stress free job.
Highly recommended!!”
