No JOB is too BIG or too SMALL for us!

Nothing starts the New Year like a major new project!

Body Corporate Maintenance Work

The One Macquarie building is a unique, luxurious apartment complex in Teneriffe, offering one of Brisbane’s most exclusive riverside addresses.

A fresh coat of paint will brighten and freshen the exterior of the building. But a great exterior paint job does more than just brighten the appearance of any home or building. The paint helps protect the structure from our extreme elements that we suffer here in beautiful Queensland.

Body corporate maintenance work is just some of our projects at Darren Slater Painter & Decorator and we couldn’t be happier to have our painters at this awesome location.

This complex is made up of four separate buildings comprising of 34 apartments. These exclusive residences feature luxurious finishes and features including gymnasium, lap pool, steam room and 17 marina berths.

Oh and the view is undeniably amazing.


The project consists of painting the external buildings, pool areas, garden walls, gymnasium and car parks and will take us approximately 4 months to complete.

Abseiling equipment makes reaching those hard to reach places a piece of cake!

The HIA, Sunday Mail Home Show

was held on the 9-11 September 2016 at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre was a great 1st show for Darren Slater Painter & Decorator.


Our aim is to get the brand Darren Slater Painter & Decorator to be the first you think of when wanting a quality painting job for your home, office, boat, shed or furniture. The difference between a paint job and a Darren Slater Painter & Decorator paint job is not only the quality of the products used, but the service and the professionalism of our tradesmen.

Our stand at the Home Show was bright, colourful and full of professional pride. Our stand was overflowing with samples of great faux finishes and ideas. We included a lot of information and items in our stand, because at Darren Slater Painter & Decorator we have a lot to offer.


With Darren Slater, Luke Barrett and James Christoforou, just some of our professional staff, on hand to offer great advice and encouragement to all the guests visiting our stand and attending the Home Show.


Guests were invited to enter the draw to win Planters, which were hand painted, in a selection of amazing finishes. I am sure that the 9 lucky winners were thrilled with their new planters.


With this being the first Home Show experience for Darren Slater Painter & Decorator, we were excited and are encouraged by the positive results that we received. You will definitely see us at the next Home Show. We are already thinking up new ideas for the next one…keep your eye out.


Do you stand out from the pack?

Make the most of your business location!

Eye catching results are just a phone call away.

One of our clients has a great location for their building with great traffic flow past their premises, but they were concerned that their building didn’t stand out from the surrounding businesses and buildings.

Before (before transformation)

With some great ideas discussed, they decided on this striking effect.

The black and white stripes are eye catching and certainly add that little something to grab the attention of all that traffic flowing by. The whole project which included the entire exterior of the building was completed successfully by just some of our team including Graeme, Brendan, Chris, Jake and Simon and the striped effect will last 10-15 years.

The product used was Dulux Atex Roof Membrane and applied using rollers to an existing colour-bond bull-nose roof. The straight lines were achieved by free hand cutting in.
