Church Painters Sydney

Church Painters & Decorators Sydney

Church painters Sydney provide a professional painting, decorating, artistic and beautification service for both modern and heritage Churches in Sydney and Greater Sydney. We offer an extensive range of interior and exterior paint finishes, colour schemes and beautiful decorative finishes and art. Projects have included Rivendell Chapel in the Thomas Walker Estate, St John’s Anglican Cathedral in Parramatta and St Joseph’s Catholic Church in Moorebank. The photo featured above is of St John’s Cathedral in Parramatta. Six exterior doors were originally wood grained – ie. hand painted to look like real oak wood, but were damaged over years of use. In December 2017, Gary Lancaster was hired to repaint the six damaged doors. He wood grained them to look like real oak and quartered oak, and also repainted the hinges and the medieval leaf hinges of the front of the doors.

With honesty and reliability, we work extensively with the Churches and their committees to help them achieve their desired outcome. Using the latest National WHS (Work Health & Safety) policies, we implement strategies to ensure the safety and welfare all people involved, the buildings, the property and the neighbouring community. With customer service being paramount, we aim for total customer satisfaction. We allow for flexibility in working around Church activities during the process of works.

Being committed to environmental care and public health, we provide safe lead testing and removal services for older Churches and buildings. See our services.

As Church painters Sydney, we pride ourselves in the quality of our work, ensuring surfaces are thoroughly prepared before applying the coating systems. Preparation is the most important aspect of any job, ensuring the quality of the final finish and ensuring longevity of the painting and decorating work. We ensure surfaces are thoroughly prepared before applying the coating systems. Cracks, from minor hair-line cracks up to major structural cracking are filled using the correct materials. For major cracks this may involve sand, lime and cement or even plastering. All surfaces are rubbed down and dusted off, and in some cases, may require washing down. Following the Australian Industry Standards, we recommend a minimum of a three coat paint system using super premium quality paint and materials. Being passionate about our work, our customers and the community, we ensure a high standard of work and safety is achieved for every job.

Church Heritage Conservation

Church Banner Reconstruction

Specialising in heritage conservation Lancaster Painters Australia are passionate about ensuring the cultural significance of heritage Churches in New South Wales are retained for future generations to enjoy. We are heritage listed in New South Wales and members of the National Trust of Australia. We conform to the Burra Charter and have the skills and expertise to provide historical and traditional heritage painting methods that are reproduced using the same paint methods and materials employed after which painting methods began to dominate the industry. Our work is based on exhaustive and continuous research into methods, materials, techniques and styles. Each job is individually hand painted by skilled artisans without compromises in quality, historical accuracy or consistency. Working from original paint scrapings, using techniques such as spectroscopy, micro analysis or mechanical methods, and by understanding documentary evidence, we have reproduced paint finishes, artwork and designs and accurately reproduced the style, character and look of the original period look.

“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. His willingness to work around our ongoing activities, consider our requests, provide samples in situ and negotiate the specifics of contract variations, was appreciated greatly. 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…” Read more.
