He is a founding member of the Porter’s Applicator’s Guild, and has worked with us as a trainer for other trade painters in the application of Porter’s products.

One Macquarie Body Corporate Chairman

We recently completed painting our four-building One Macquarie complex; including grounds and underground facilities.
The work was undertaken by Darren Slater Painter and Decorator Pty Ltd.
The project was complex and challenging - four buildings; dozens of balconies; complex interfaces - and, of course a demanding customer.
We were delighted by the overall performance on this contract.
White the quality of work was exceptionally and universally high, you expect that. We also want to provide testimony to the following:

- Notwithstanding two weeks of solid rain, the project was finished in 13 weeks and this was 5 weeks ahead of schedule;
- There were no accidents or injuries on the job; the safety standards and focus was exemplary;
- Leadership was in place every day. Site supervisor Luke Barrett ran the job full time; and Darren Slater visited several times a week;
- Contingency planning was in place so that, when it rained, work continued without disruption indoors;
- The team who did the work were impeccably behaved; they were polite, courteous and considerate at all times;
- The team respected our homes at all times;
- There were no commercial issues, disputes or claims.

Our Committee and our residents have all been delighted with the work.
We recommend Darren Slater Painter and Decorator Pty Ltd for consideration for projects like ours.

Nice young men.

Hi Darren

I felt compelled to write to you to tell you how proud you should be of your team. All the men were polite, respectful and did a terrific job. It was far easier that I had anticipated which no doubt came down to the planning.
Please pass my compliments on to them.

Kind regards

John Poiner

Your painters have been professional, friendly, courteous, respectful and helpful, all things you would wish for.
They have been a credit to you and you should be proud of them.


Our Hampton style house needed the stair case wood washed and sealed - I am very happy with the end result. I highly recommend Darren Slater and his team!

I just wanted to thank you, and particularly Justin, for the beautiful, neat work he did on the outside of our home, along with Luke, for the magic he performed on our old furniture which now looks like new. They were pleasant, nothing was ever too much trouble and they were totally trustworthy. Our family and friends all love the very professional transformation!

James left our home yesterday round lunchtime. I met Graham when the boys got there on Monday and then Graham came through yesterday to check the final product and to make sure everything was okay.

The paint is absolutely gorgeous...I love the texture of it and it just looks amazing. Awesome work.

Thanks to James and the team for making our family home like new again...James was lovely, very professional and what a great communicator for a young lad his age...it was a pleasure dealing with him. He does great work.
