We provide the most advanced painting services Gauteng and Cape Town have to offer. Our painting services are highly sought after and we have the capacity as well as the expertise to supply our painting services to both residential and commercial properties.

Expert Paint Contractors

We believe that the company has flourished as a result of our excellent service and professional workmanship. It is due to our product and service excellence that we have become one of the leading painting companies in Johannesburg. Our pricing is also exceptionally competitive, averaging over 20% cheaper than our competitors.

Our company is made up of two complete teams. These teams are assigned one job at a time, this is to ensure a hands on and highly personalised service. We like to complete one project before moving onto the next, ensuring that our clients receive the ultimate service. All of our staff attend training at Plascon so as to always keep up to date with the newest products and procedures on the painting market.
