Customer Reviews

Matthew Hart, one customer, shared a comment as posted on the Professional Bay Painters website:

“We used Professional Bay Painters to repaint a number of areas in our New World supermarket and also some touch up work. The standard of workmanship and service we received from Ray and his team was of high quality, value and very prompt. Given our supermarket is open 7 days Ray and his team completed the work over a number of nights, working through the night so as not to disrupt our staff and customers. I would highly recommend Ray and his team at Professional Bay Painters. Thanks guys!”

Customer Reviews

Here’s Cecile Hurford’s review which you can find on the painter’s website:

“Stephanie painted my kitchen, including the cupboard doors and drawers for me, as well as my bathroom vanity and cupboards. She quoted my a price and stayed within that price, even though the bathroom cupboards were last minute extras. She also estimated the job take 5 days, but in fact she finished in 4.

I am very pleased with the result and can recommend Stephanie to anyone wanting to use her decorating services.”
