- What COVID-19 measures are taken by Rochele Painting?
Our commitment at present is to keep the business fully operational and work with Rochele’s management and admin team to adapt intelligently when and if the need arises.
Rochele Painting has issued numerous precautions to our painters working in the field. Best hygiene practices are in place at our head office and our company vehicles are equipped with sanitiser wipes and our employees are encouraged to take general hygienic precautions to keep everybody safe from the spread of COVID-19.
- 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.
- What is your preparation for windows and does it include re-glazing?
Window preparation includes appling a primer to bare areas and filling imperfections. We will reglaze minor areas but where an entire glass panel or window needs to be re-glazed we will bring this to your attention so that you can source a professional window galzier
- What brand of paint do you use?
We use all the major brands of paints including Taubmans, Dulux, Solver, Wattyl and Resene. However the most important point is that within these brands we only use their premium lines of paints. Meaining we dont their lower quality trade lines

- Why is it so expensive to repaint our building, (a B/C block of units)?
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 don’t typically work for or on behalf of builders or property developers and refer this type of work to our strategic painting partners Tedim Brothers.
