- Does Rochele use sub contractors?
Rochele Painting only uses industry qualified painters with a minimum of 10 years experience. Every painting contractor is formally inducted into Rochele via our in house workshops and are placed on long-term (5-15 year) contracts. Ongoing training addressing customer service and safety and provided as well as a number of team building socials throughout the year. Each painting team is assigned one of our QBCC licensed supervisors to oversee their workmanship and act as liaison between our customers, painters and office. Most of our painters have been with Rochele long-term with many bosting 7 to 15 year time periods. We view our painting teams as the backbone of our company and the best in the industry. Establishing our painting teams as subcontractors has better aligned our painters incentives with our customers and our company.

- Does Rochele use abseil painter to paint multilevel buildings?
We have been utilising abseil painters for several years now and have successfully completed many large scale commercial projects via abseil. We often combine it with various other forms of access such as elevated work platforms, fixed and mobile scaffold and swing stages. We are insured and licensed and will offer this form of access if it could improve the safety or workflow of your project.

- Why is it so expensive to repaint our building, (a B/C block of units) when the outside is all brick and there are only a few bit to paint?
A few things to take into account:
Usually a block of units, (6 pack or more) are larger structures than your average house.
They are also generally taller/higher. As such, accessing the areas that need to be painted, i.e. gutters, fascias, eaves, balcony railings and edges, requires special equipment, such as scaffolding, boom or scissor lifts and cherry pickers. Theses are referred to a EWP (elevated work platforms).
Further to this, items such as gutters, and balcony railings require far more preparation prior to painting which can be labour intensive. Remembering, a average paint project cost can be broken down as 10-15% of the cost towards paint prices and materials and 85-90% towards the cost of labour.
- Can I send you plans to quote from?
We specialise in repainting and therefore we only offer onsite quoting. We focus on providing prompt quotes and repaints directly to clients who are typically property owners, schools, retirement and aged care facilities, Body corporates and property managers
We therefore dont typically work for or on behalf of builders or property developers and refer this type of work to our strategic painting partners Tedim Brothers.
