About Our Commercial Painters
As professional commercial painters, 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. Preparation is the most important aspect of a job, ensuring the quality of the final finish as well as adding years onto the paintwork before it will need painting again. Working to the Australian Industry Standards, we apply a minimum of a three coat paint system using only quality paint and materials. Technical and material safety data sheets are made available on request.
Lancaster Painters Australia top priority is customer service.

Church of the Sacred Heart, Semaphore
Gary Lancaster – Lancaster Painters Australia Pty Ltd
Recently Lancaster Painters Australia repainted Sacred Heart Church in Semaphore, South Australia.
They were among a list of painters recommended to us by the Port Adelaide Enfield Council as suitable for the type of heritage restoration we were seeking in a painting firm. We eventually engaged Gary Lancaster and his team as we felt they had the best understanding of what we were seeking, and because we found Gary an easy person to work with. We valued his willingness to cooperate and consult. We were also advised that he had the expertise to restore some wording that was special to many of the congregation, but had been painted out in a previous painting.
We were very pleased with our choice. Gary and his team did an excellent job, and were committed to doing their very best.
Right from the start they cooperated well with us. We had a requirement that the church be available for worship on Sundays. Amid scaffold and shifted pews the church was always cleaned, and arranged in a way that made Sunday worship possible (and gave the congregation a sense of being part of the renewal process of the building – many spoke of enjoying the experience even though a bit inconvenienced).
We had an idea of the colours we wanted, and we were able to share this with Gary. He then came up with a creative range of possibilities, painted some of these on the walls as samples, and we engaged the congregation in selecting the schemes they preferred. This was a good process, and gave a much better sense of ownership (and pride in it) to the whole congregation. Gary was willing to experiment, and where the colours spoke, to choose them. He also gave insightful suggestions as to ways to improve the appearance of the work. His input into what could be achieved was crucial to the outcome.
A lot of consideration went into the choice (and hand painting) of the frieze around the church. Gary first painted a sample, which people considered. Then gave us a book of samples to explore, from which we chose three, and asked for congregational feedback. Finally we settled on two. Gary procured the stencils for these, put samples of each on the wall, and again we chose the one that now graces the wall. It took a specialist painter a week to do, and all now feel they had a part in its selection.
All through the painting we enjoyed the presence of Gary and his team with us. They were friendly, always had time for the many parishioners who poked a head in to view the progress of the work, and showed respect for the church in which they were painting.
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.
We are pleased that we engaged Lancaster Painters Australia Pty Ltd to enhance our church. They have done a great job.
