HDL delivered the job as expected and well ahead of schedule. They also did quiet some extra work for free.

Rose, 2016

Thank you Ken for being so professional.

Forrrest, 2016

A very professional and trouble-free experience for me, from the initial contact. Brian and Dave were courteous, friendly and reliable and did a great job. I would have no hesitation in using them again. All the initial preparation such as a builder for a minor repair, house wash and scaffolding were arranged for me and all turned up when expected. Communications were excellent.

Alison, 2016

Steve did a brilliant job for us on a difficult ceiling job, plastering cracks and painting. He was careful and thorough and we will definitely use this company again.

Trish, 2015

Steve was a very good workman, he did a quality job. He was a pleasure to have on site. We are getting a lot of positive comments about how well it all now looks so many thanks.

Jan, 2015

I am very happy with all that has been done. Ken was always really reliable and most considerate, always letting me know when he was going to be arriving. Many thanks.

Sharn, 2015

Vic and his team were absolutely brilliant. We continued working as a dental clinic throughout and they worked around our opening hours with regard to noise and access needs. The end result is excellent and they were efficient and pleasant to have around. I highly recommend HDL Painters to anyone!

Graham, 2015

HDL painted the exterior of our weatherboard house recently. The existing paint work had deteriorated badly. We were very impressed with the level of preparation undertaken by Ken to restore the weatherboards. The final painted finish is superb!!!!

Warren, 2014

HDL have been a great company to deal with for the interior painting of our home. Dave and Kim have done an excellent job with other tradespeople also commenting on the standard of the work. Mikey was also very accommodating. With 5 adults in our household the task seemed overwhelming, but the Painters were all understanding and helpful. They also came when they said they were coming. I would have no hesitation in thoroughly recommending this company.

Di, 2014

First rate communication, speedy quote and excellent work finished in a good timeframe even with weather issues. Will recommend your firm to anyone I can. Thank you.

Stephen, 2014

Thank you we are happy with the painting, it looks amazing. I am happy with the colour choice too which is always good. They both did a good job but Dave has done a great job on the tricky bits.

Jan & John, 2014

Just a note to say that the HDL team have been very considerate to the operational requirements of the Hospice and are continually advising of their work methods and status, which is appreciated. I have had several comments on the great work they are doing and they are great ambassadors for HDL.

Mike, 2014

Iain is doing a great job and a bit of good weather will see him finished soon. He is a truly professional painter with very good skills and we are happy to have had him working on our home!.

Russell, 2013

Iain did a fantastic job (interior painting and wallpapering) and I'm very pleased with the result.

Mike, 2013

We were really pleased with the feature walls painted in our new house by Vic and the team at HDL. They were quick to respond to our enquiry and we felt the quote given for the work was great value for money. The quality of the work done by Dave is fantastic. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend HDL and would definitely use them again in the future.

C. Kelly, 2013

I chose to use HDL for my own home as I appreciate attention to detail and getting the end result I expect - Brian has been a pleasure to have around.

A. Daniell, 2013

Iain did an exceptional job, we are very happy. The service and workmanship from HDL has been of the very highest standard and as such we'd be very keen to use you again down the track with a full external paint job. Many thanks.

Dermott, 2013

Yes everything with the job looks good, a special thanks to Robert who was very pleasant to work with. He was caring about his work and took pride in it. And thank you to Lydia and Vic for the ongoing communication and for finding solutions for me.

Gill, 2013

Another clean and tidy job. Thank you.

Betty, 2013

We have inspected the finished job and are very pleased with the results. We have appreciated the regular communications and the three staff on site were a pleasure to deal with. Thanks to your company for the great service (commercial exterior).

Barry, 2012

I just wanted to say what an absolute pleasure it has been to have Brian working at the house in the last week. He has been absolutely wonderful...working so quietly and diligently we often forget he is there! The work he has done has absolutely transformed the hall and bathroom/toilet/shower and he has not even finished yet. We can't wait to see the finished results. I just wanted to let you know what an absolute credit Brian is to HDL and we will be recommending HDL to everyone and whenever we need painting/papering done in the future, you will be top of our list.

Pania, 2012

Robert is lovely and making remarkable progress considering the weather is not co-operating, he's a pleasure to have around and we are pleased with the work. Thanks.

Sally, 2012

We send our sincere thanks to you for helping us on the following (1) the price structure which you gave us and (2) the excellent work done by Dave. He made an excellent job on the painting and wallpapering and left everything in a neat and tidy condition on his departure.

Bill & Jan, 2012

Brian did an awesome job as per usual! Thanks again.

Sandra, 2012

Kim and Dave were fantastic - will definitely recommend HDL to others.

Priscilla, 2012

We have just finished moving in and had no time to say thank you. Mike has done a great job and given us so many useful suggestions. Please say thanks to Mike and Lydia, we do appreciate your excellent work and we'll definitely recommend you guys to our friends.

Tony, 2012

I have used HDL on three occasions now and would use them again if I needed a paint or varnishing job done. They are my first choice and I would recommend them to friends and family. Thank you for a job well done - Brian is my favourite and I am happy you enabled me to have him as my requested painter. He is very skilled and I particularly like his attention to detail with accurate completion.

Christine, 2012

Brian did an exceptional job and the place looks great. Thanks again..

Vicki, 2011

Thanks for the excellent work the roof looks really great and Katrina and I were both very impressed with the way your people went about their work and the care they took.

K. Jan, 2011

A huge thank you for your time and patience on this little project, we would not hesitate to recommend you as you were always very accommodating and understanding and did a FANTASTIC job, all very friendly and did a fab job of tidying up and even didn't mind my kids chatting away to you! Thanks, Helen.

Helen, 2011

I just wanted to e-mail and let you know how pleased we are with the job Iain has done with the Walltastic mural and thank you for sorting this all out so efficiently. We will be recommending your services to others. Thanks Monique.

Monique, 2011

Its a bit late, but I wanted to say thank you for the fantastic job Brian did on our two children's rooms at 4 Masons Ave Herne bay. He is a very quite and unintrusive presence and was very thorough and I appreciated the time he took to move furniture and property as I was pregnant and a bit hopeless at helping. In addition to the quote process with you, the whole experience was pleasant and painless! Thanks again and we will definitely return to you guys when we paint the rest of the house in the next couple of years. The bill has been paid. Congratulations on running such a great service.  

Lisa, 2010

We have inspected the finished job and are very pleased with the results. We have appreciated the regular communications and the three staff on site were a pleasure to deal with. Thanks to your company for the great service (commercial exterior).

David & Eleanor, 2010

Barbara, 2009

Thank you so much for all you have been able to do, My house looks great and UI have enjoyed your company very much. Best Wishes Marion.

Marion, 2009

Totally impressed by the way the whole process / job has gone. Many thanks to everyone concerned. We wont hesitate to recommend HDL to anyone.

Mr. Creelman, 2007

Very approachable staff, considerate not invasive. Paint charts shown were spot on. Explanations clear and Dave's paint work neat and tidy, kept areas clean. End result excellent work. More than happy customer.

Gwen, 2005

I am delighted with the appearance of my Home.


I have found HDL painters very reliable and extremely pleasant to deal with. The work has been carried out in a timely manner and the quality of work is excellent. We have never experienced any problems with them and can highly recommend them to anyone wanting to avail themselves of their service.

Debi, 2004

Thanks for the great job that was done, the house looks great. Thank Mike on our behalf as well, as he did a fantastic Job. Leaving your house open to complete strangers is a daunting experience, but we felt totally comfortable having Mike there and would not hesitate to recommend Mike and yourself to anyone.

Leanne, 2000


Dear Paul, Many thanks for a job well done. Your staff, Damon and Mike are to be complimented for the professional way they organised and completed the work, including leaving no traces of equipment or materials.

Joan & Marvin, 2000


The entire job was carried out professionally right from the start. I highly recommend HDL.

Penny, 2016

A BIG thank you to the HDL team. Excellent job guys. Well done.

Keith, 2016

Thank you very much! Right from the start everyone was very professional and arrived when they said they were going to arrive - unlike a lot of companies who just don't bother to turn up or phone. James the waterblaster guy was fantastic and did a great job and so did Ken who kept me updated all the time. The paint job I can not fault. Thank you once again.

Marilyn, 2015

Ken was very professional and did a fantastic job! I will definitely be coming back to you when it's time to paint the interiors.

Chris, 2015

Thanks very much, the place looks great. I've processed the payment today. We really appreciate your help getting this done so promptly (ready for sale).

Bill, 2015

TThe Painters did an excellent job. We are over the moon, not only with the ceiling but with the attitude of the Painters who I must tell you were the best we have had - it was money well spent. Again thanks to all the team.

C. May, 2015

Just a quick e-mail to say how pleased I am with the house painting. I obviously selected the right provider. A particular thank you to Iain who not only did such a good job but was so nice to have around.

Sue, 2014

Thanks Lydia, we couldn't be happier with the work that Dave and Brian have done. They've transformed our house!

Bronwyn, 2014

Thank you Lydia, Brian did a wonderful job as always.

Christine, 2014

I am really pleased with the job Brian did painting my house. I found him very considerate and a pleasant person to have working here. Please mention the fact to him and I will certainly give HDL some free advertising!

Anne, 2014

Ken did a great job and was very thorough, both in communication as well as getting the best out of our house. Lydia was awesome to deal with in the office also. Highly recommended and quite a refreshing company in terms of the importance they put on customer satisfaction and communication. Thank you!

Yvette, 2014

Corey was the nicest young man to have around our house. Always on time and working very full days and at all times, polite, courteous and professional.

Sandi, 2013

Iain has been fabulous to have around. Final payment will be shortly and thank you.

Nicki, 2013

I chose this company on the basis of comments posted on the No Cowboys website and I wasn't disappointed. Vic and Lydia were thoroughly professional and their Painter Brian did a fantastic job. Earlier this year we had employed another company to paint the exterior of the house. That company did a very average job and were very slapstick in their approach, especially with the preparation. When Vic arrived to do the quote on just the one room he was more concerned about getting the right job done for the room than the previous company had been for the whole house! I would have no hesitation in recommending Vic and his team and will certainly be using them in future.

Mary, 2013

I just want to let you know what a pleasure it was having Iain here. Apart from doing a meticulous job with the painting, he was the most obliging tradesman one could wish for. Whatever I asked him to do always got a cheery - "no problem". You are fortunate to have him on your team.

Heather, 2013

Lydia and Vic were pleasant, responsive and easy to deal with. Dave did a great job prepping our walls and painting our open plan lounge/kitchen area. HDL provided high-quality paint. The trim required several coats, which Dave did without complaint. Dave was very friendly and trustworthy (and lovely with our big dog!), and we felt comfortable leaving him alone in the house while he did his work.

Katherine, 2013

A quick note to let you know that we were very pleased with Iain's workmanship completing our small paint job over the weekend.

John, 2013

It was a pleasure doing business with HDL. They did a perfect job and their friendly prompt service was amazing. I have never had such a no stress job like it. Thanks very much to all the team.

Deb, 2013

The boys were friendly and did a good job. The paintwork looks great thank you.

Jason, 2013

Thank you Lydia, can you please pass on our thanks, HDL did a perfect job. We may need you back for further work as the rest looks bad in comparison! Thanks.

Jenny, 2012

Got back yesterday and the house looks great, Im thrilled with it thank you.

Anna, 2012

Everything looks really good - the painters were also very good. Thank you.

Theresa, 2012

Thank you for your e-mail, yes we are happy with the painting and it was really good to have it done at the time we wanted it - your efforts are much appreciated. HDLs customer service is outstanding so thank you.

S. Lee, 2012

We're extremely happy with the painting job you guys did. It looks so much better. I'm really pleased John Saunders recommended you and we'll definitely recommend you to others!

Catherine, 2012

Ken was incredibly honest and trustworthy, vital when allowing tradesmen into your home when you are absent. We're happy with the finished job - the house looks fantastic thanks.

Rushlee, 2012

Yes we are very pleased with the finished job and the suede effect in the lounge was just what we wanted. Dave seems to be a real craftsman and it was a pleasure to have such an experienced painter. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend HDL to any friends wanting painting carried out.

Faye, 2012

Professional and courteous service and good standard of workmanship. This was the second time I have used HDL and got excellent service both times.

Sue, 2012

Brian and Dave did a great job - all the rooms in the house look beautiful with new wallpaper. The skirting boards, ceilings and trim are all beautifully painted. Thanks guys!

Chris & Nancy, 2011

I really appreciate the awesome work!! We are very happy with your service and standard of work that Vic did, we surely will come back to you if we need another painting job in the future!! Payment has been made this morning into your account, thanks heaps!!!! Regards, Kelly.

Kelly, 2011

I am very pleased with the work done by Dave & Kim at my residence in Milford. They were polite, tidy and did a great job - what more could one ask for?!

Caroline, 2011

Thank you very much for painting my property. We are very happy with the job done and will certainly recommend you to others and reempoly you when our next painting is due.

Jerry, 2011

Thanks for the excellent work the roof looks really great and Katrina and I were both very impressed with the way your people went about their work and the care they took.

Kelvin, 2011

Received the account yesterday and have paid today by electronic payment. Thanks for this. Harley did a fantastic job and was easy to deal with. Please pass on our thanks to him and paul too. Regards, Joanne.

Joanne, 2010

I would highly recommend HDL to everyone. I found the service to be prompt and the staff extremely friendly and highly professional. They have done a fantastic job!

Francine, 2010

I am well pleased with the job your company has carried out and if anyone can show me painters more professional than HDL I would like to meet him

G. Bennet, 2009

Now that the decorating is finished I would like to say that I am very pleased with the end result. You should be very proud of the team you have working for you. The guys that work at my place were polite, courteous and very easy going. They all just got on with the job and got it done. I would have no hesitation in recommending your company to any of my friends or colleagues.

Chris, 2008


Just wanted to say a big thank you for the awesome job, we have has a number of things done to the house in the last few months and your service has by far been the highlight. Your entire team really goes the extra mile and we really appreciate everything that was done. Especially appreciate the great job that Ian has done, he is such a nice guy and we felt completely at ease having him around the house when we weren't there, in fact we rather missed him when he left!  Painting the house was a big investment for us and your team made every step easy for us, thanks for making it such a good experience. Looking forward to buying the next house so you can come and paint that as well.

Angela, 2007


Excellent service-will be using your services again, thank you.

Nancy & Paul, 2005

Very impressed with overall standard of work and Mikes pleasant attitude and pride in his work.

Peter & Cheryl


HDL Painters have been painting and Decorating at Northbridge Retirement Village for the past 8 years. They have undertaken both major works and apartment upgrades. I have found their work to be of the highest standard and have no hesitation in recommending them."

Lindsey, 2004

I would like to thank you very much for an excellent job which we are very pleased with. I would like to thank you further for your professionalism and keeping me well informed during the work. I am so impressed by your work and attitude that I would like to offer to act as a reference if you ever have such a request.

Martin, 1997

We have had the pleasure of conducting business with the above named decorating and painting company for the last 3 years. In this time we have always found their work to be of a very high professional standard and their staff to be helpful and courteous. Paul and his team are always positive about the work in progress and are never discouraged should they be asked to make any changes to the original work quoted for. We find this to be an exception in the painting and decorating trade where many so called painters are really only home handymen who, when presented with any small challenges, tend to be less than professional. We have never hesitated to recommend Holcombe Decorators to any of our clients and are only too happy to give them our ongoing support in the future."
