Heritage Testimonials

Professor Anthony W. Thomas

“Last year Gary Lancaster was suggested by our insurance company to carry out repair work following heavy rain which led to serious damage to the surface of a wall in our house. As the technique used on the wall involved a french wash, it required some experience and skill. I am pleased to say that Gary did an extremely professional job, within the time frame promised. The quality of the work was very important to us as the house dates from the 1880’s and is of some historic interest. Since then we have also contracted Gary to do more work, involving the repair and painting of window frames and both interior and exterior walls. In all cases the work has been done in a professional way, with careful attention to detail, minimal fuss and on time. My wife and I are pleased to recommend Gary as a highly skilled painter. We will certainly use his services again and we recommend him to you in the strongest possible terms.” See portfolio.

Hon C. J. Sumner & Suzanne Roux

“Gary and Geoffrey offered creative suggestions and painted samples of their suggestions on our wall and ceilings so that we could clearly visualize their suggestions. The result is that our home is beautifully decorated maintaining our desire for a light and open ambience but at the same time reflecting the heritage of our home…Gary and Geoff displayed an enthusiasm and commitment to achieving an excellent quality of work. Their knowledge and skill and understanding of the many different painting methods and finishes has opened our eyes to what can be achieved by skilled artisans.” See portfolio with full testimonial.

Payneham Road Uniting Church

“Payneham Road Uniting Church engaged Gary Lancaster to redecorate the interior of its worship chapel during February-March 2013… While we provided an outline of our requirements, Gary’s background and experience brought to our notice a number of features which, when highlighted, added considerably to the overall impact on the décor… The employees engaged by Gary were always cooperative, industrious and of good value. In particular we appreciated the care taken in repairing and modifying damaged features and the overall cleaning of the chapel and its contents…” See portfolio with full testimonials.

Church of the Sacred Heart

“Gary and his team did an excellent job, and were committed to doing their very best. Since the completion of the painting we have had a constant stream of praise for the work. It has transformed the look of the church. Previously it was painted a drab cement colour. It now has a much more pleasant, warmer feel to it, and many of its features have been enhanced by the colours they have been painted.” Fr Brian Angus.

Bayview Lodge

“We are undertaking a staged maintenance program on our heritage listed property in Rockdale, Sydney. This includes extensive lead paint removal and remediation, followed by painting to a heritage colour scheme. We contracted Lancaster Painters Australia Pty Ltd for this work in early 2012, primarily because of their technical knowledge and previous experience. We also appreciated their flexibility with a program that had to react to unforeseen delays and discoveries, and their ability to work around this and accommodate us. The first stage work was recently completed whilst we remained resident on site, with minimal disruption to our family and without any delays. We found Gary to be courteous and helpful throughout, and generous with his time, samples and advice. The work completed so far has been of the highest standard and we are very happy with the outcome. We will continue to use Lancaster Painters Australia Pty Ltd for the remainder of our project and recommend them unreservedly.” Allan. See portfolio.

Ashfield Cottage

“I would highly recommend Lancaster Painters. I found them to be very knowledgeable and thorough as well as easy and pleasant to deal with. Removing lead is a delicate process and Lancaster Painters handled everything with great care and attention to detail. They kept me informed of every stage and I’m convinced that the walls in my house are now in a better condition than they were when they were built.” Elinor. See portfolio.
