Read This Before You Get A Quote For Residential Or Body Corporate Painting!

Thinking about getting a quote on business or residential painting? The bad news is, it’s not as simple as saying how many rooms or exterior walls you’ve got to paint. The good news is, with a few extra bits of information, you can get a practical and accurate quote that takes everything into account. Professional body corporate painters and residential painters like the team from Vince’s are more than happy to take into account a variety of factors, including your personal style influences and preferences.

Before we meet to discuss your needs and provide a formal quote, there are a few things to consider. Make a mental checklist of the below details, and when you’ve got it sorted, give us a call. We look forward to chatting about your project!
