How much does it cost to paint a property?

At Rochele Painting we pride ourselves on the accuracy of our painting quotations. We spend a lot of time developing painting rates and quoting procedures to give our clients the most accurate painting prices.

We are licenced painters completing licenced work. The Queensland Building and Construction Commission (QBCC) requires all projects over $3,000 + GST to be completed by a licensed painter and therefore this is our minimum charge.

Our prices are based on meterage rates that we review collectively by drawing on the decades of experience within our team. We then set these rates in place for a year or more to create consistency for our customers and our painters.

To better explain domestic and commercial painting prices, we have developed some examples of our typical painting services & their price ranges. For a more accurate price, please use our free quote service.

Is it worth paying someone to paint your property?

Some people hesitate when hiring a professional painter as they believe they can do it themselves. Most people start out fine but soon realise it isn’t as easy as it looks. As professionals, we make it look easy because we do it every day and have done so for over 45 years. We have the product knowledge, application experience, professional equipment and expert skill to ensure a paint finish that is top quality.

It’s not just about slapping on a coat of paint. That coat of paint needs to serve a purpose that isn’t only aesthetically pleasing to the eye but also functional, especially in the subtropical climate we live in here in South East Queensland. Our paint coatings must protect against the harsh sun and hot summers and survive our storm seasons. So a slap-happy DIY job is not worth the risk as it will cost you more time, money and stress than hiring a professional from the get-go.

What our customers say about painting costs

I’d heard of them and I’d seen their ads on TV and I immediately thought they would be too expensive but a friend of mine had used them and my husband contacted them and they came quite quickly and their price was really competitive. The team was absolutely wonderful. I just couldn’t be happier.

interior unit painting

Linda and her husband live in Indooroopilly and decided to paint the entire interior of their apartment. They had heard of Rochele and seen our ads on TV and initially thought we were expensive. However, after a recommendation by a friend, they contacted Rochele for a quote, which they soon realised was really price-competitive.

After engaging Rochele to paint their apartment they were overwhelmed with the professionalism and smooth sailing of the project. Linda and her husband were living in the apartment while our professional painters completed the interior and they could not be happier with the process or the outcome. Their apartment now has a fresh new feeling with a wonderful finish and they couldn’t be happier.

Rochele provided colour consultancy to help Linda feel confident in the colour she was choosing and she found this extremely helpful. After their experience with Rochele these clients would happily recommend Rochele as the process was amazing. We finished in record time and left everything spick and span.
