  • We have used 3 Colours three times over 12 years – twice to paint the entire outside and once the entire inside of our house. On each occasion, the quality of the work has been first-class, particularly from senior painters Duane and Gerard in 2020. 3 Colours are not the cheapest painters, but they represent very good value for money, given the high standrad of their work. I heartily recommend them, particularly where quality matters.

  • The results are excellent and all owners are extremely pleased with their work. The team of painters were brilliant- they were so easy to work with, they were meticulous and considerate and very friendly. It is obvious that they take great pride in their work
    I would recommend 3 Colours to anyone.

  • Marek and 3 Colours completed a major project on our unit complex in North Sydney / Kirribilli border. The unit complex contains 5 individual 1 bedroom units with a sunroom. The whole project was managed very well including some variations for badly rotted timber and unexpected roof repairs but within our overall budget, we had allowed for contingencies. Marek and his team are very professional and their preparation work is very thorough and resulted in a first-class result for our building.

  • This was a first class experience from the word go. The quote was detailed and all questions were answered. The painters were very pleasant to have in our home. Their work was excellent and they left our house clean and tidy when they left for the day. They worked quickly. This has been an exceptional experience and we would not hesitate to recommend 3 Colours Painting Services to anyone.

What does your quote include?

Generally, unless otherwise agreed, our quote covers surface preparation – such as building washing, filling cracks and holes, sanding surfaces between coats, and applying sealers/primers. This is the most time-consuming part of our job and without proper surface preparation, the coatings will not last and early paint failure may occur.

Do you offer a warranty?

Yes, 3 Colours warrants to the customer, for a period of five years from the date of the contract, subject to certain limitations, we will repair cracking, peeling or chipping paint resulting from faulty surface preparation or application of the coating system.

Our warranty document that is supplied with the quotation includes the limitations where the warranty does not apply, this includes issues that arise from damage caused by incorrect cleaning procedures such as abrasive cleaning agents. To ensure that this does not happen, we supply all our customers with a cleaning guide on how to care for paintwork.

Can you provide an estimate over the phone?

Generally, quotations should not be provided without a prior visual inspection of the property. A visual inspection assists us to determine the condition of the substrate, so we can accurately quote for the works. The inspection also provides us with the opportunity to document any building issues upfront. Howver, given the current COVID restrictions, we are open to providing estimates over the phone via a video call so we can assess the job.

What is Home Building Compensation Fund Insurance (HBCF)?

Home Building Compensation Fund Insurance (HBCF) is compulsory insurance the painter is required to obtain on your behalf for works that cost more than $20k. It is the painter’s responsibility to purchase the certificate of insurance on your behalf. As it is for the benefit of the owner. The insurance covers owners for up to six years in the case of incomplete or defective work and the contractor company has become insolvent, disappeared or has died.

What are your payment terms?

Legally a painting company cannot ask for more than 10 per cent of the value of the works for a deposit. The payment should be made in progress payments with sign off at each stage to ensure you are happy with the works.

What type and quality of paint will be used?

When you ask for house painting quotes from the contractors, they will often give you the lowest possible quote in order to get the job, however, they may be using low-quality paints as good quality paint will result in a higher quote. 3 Colours is a Dulux Accredited painter which means we use Dulux products on all our jobs. As well as our 5-year workmanship warranty, Dulux Paints also come with their product warranty.
