Adv. Vera Kriel - Sandhurst Gardens
Paintfellas have undertaken a multimillion paint and waterproofing project at Sandhurst Garden Body Corporate, consisting of 4 blocks and 129 units, for the period April 2017 to April 2018. The project commenced and completed on time despite extended periods of rain as well as close down of premises for contractors for period 15 December to 15 January. This is especially important as it showed that their planning and re-planning skills are of high quality. The project management was done professionally as can be seen from:• Weekly quality control inspections with all parties involved.• Monthly inspections by the product suppliers• Regular reports to the estate manger and trusteesThis ensured that all parties are satisfied with the workmanship and our guarantees are met. To date all the specifications set by the quality controllers and the product suppliers have been met. No questions have been raised regarding the Paintfellas workmanship. During the project we have found Paintfellas to be professional in their approach and have accommodated all the unit owners. We have found that they have treated the property with respect and as such had minimal damage to property. The workmen have been courteous and are always well presented. There were not a single issue raised with their conduct. The contracts manger (PG Bester) has always tried to accommodate a fairly difficult clientele. We would have no hesitation to recommend Paintfellas for any similar project. If necessary we would not hesitate to use them again.
Chris McLaughlin - Chairperson & Maintenance Trustee 57 Villa Royale
After five long months, the Painting Project at Villa Royale is now complete and we are looking absolutely gorgeous! You have an excellent team of workers who you must be very proud of. Jaun and Trevor specifically. Jaun never missed an appointment with me, and was always on time. He has the perfect demeanor to deal with troublesome customers (I hope I wasn’t too bad). He was always courteous, smiling, helpful and very obliging. I deferred to his judgment on some occasions and his advice always turned out to be correct. Trevor is a gentleman of the first order and just so good at his job. He gets on with things in a steady manner, never shouting at his staff but is supportive of them and is very encouraging. I have had no reports of problems with the rest of the team – in fact, everyone has only passed on compliments about how hard they work – they are definitely a dedicated team.
Villa Royale was a very difficult contract to complete, due in the main to the poor quality of the walls when originally built and must have been a nightmare for the team to address. As Chairperson and Trustee: Maintenance, I was nominated to lead the Villa Royale Painting Project and I found it to be very rewarding and a mostly stress-free experience only because your team were so calm and professional.
This is the second time that Painfellas has painted our complex and because of past experience, I encouraged the trustees to use you again – Paintfellas didn’t let me down. The professionalism of your company is unsurpassed in the industry, I’m sure. I will continue to recommend Painfellas and you can use me as a reference anytime.
Estelle Martinson - Chairperson Rosewalk Manor
I’ve been involved as a trustee and chairperson of the Body Corporate of Rosewalk Manor for the past 5 years, managing a 40 unit property (value R50 million) and an annual budget of R1 million. We have done a number of large structural projects such as a drainage project, updating the roof structure, re-painting the complex, waterproofing a number of areas, re-tiling the complex and smaller maintenance and upgrade projects with regards to security installing a video system and new intercom system, plumbing work etc. Suffice to say that I’ve dealt with a number of contractors over the past five years and I have absolutely no hesitation in wholeheartedly recommending Paintfellas for any job they quote on. Our experience with Paintfellas over the course of the past two years and a number of projects has only been positive – they are professional, deliver quality and on time. They work so neatly that residents are hardly impacted and they are able to offer attractive warranties because of the quality of work they do. Their communication and project management around the work they do is a pleasure and on all counts they stand head and shoulders above the average company – they are without any doubt a preferred supplier for any future work we might consider. I cannot recommend them highly enough and would be quite happy to discuss the work that they’ve done at our complex with any interested party.

Paula Nogueira - Trustee – Vista Del Monte
Paintfellas undertook a damp proof and painting project at Vista Del Monte – a 42 unit complex in Johannesburg. Before taking on the project, Paintfellas was on site to assess, advise and quote, regarding what needed doing and how they would be managing the work. The project commenced in June and was completed December 2015. Working with the Paintfellas team was a pleasure. They were proficient and neat in their workings at all times. The dedicated team was supervised and led by a team lead on a daily basis. Having the site / project manager on site periodically, following up ensured good progress and professional service too. Any issues and snags were addressed timeously and professionally. I can confidently recommend PaintFellas as a solid, reliable supplier, and experts in their field. I look forward to working with the team again.
Raphael Arnold - Group CEO NetRefer
Please pass on my sincere thanks to the team who did an amazing and professional job and I would highly recommend Paintfellas to anyone looking for painting to be done. Juan managed it very well and Needo was an excellent Foreman.
Renier van Satden - Curasure
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Paintfellas for the successful project, and assistance during the numerous challenges encountered.
Vicki Trehaeven (on behalf of The Cliffs Body Corporate)
On behalf of The Cliffs Body Corporate I would like to place on record our extreme delight at the almost unbelievable transformation that has taken place at our complex. From chic - but shabby, your team has morphed The Cliffs into a modern day beauty that has brought renewed pride for its residents and employees, and unquestionably increased the market value of each unit.
The complex architecture compounded by the challenging terrain meant this undertaking was never going to be for sissies — and is probably the primary reason that the 'refresh' was well overdue.
Your team, led so ably by Drikus, Charles and Solly and with PG's oversight has us asking ourselves 'why did we wait so long'? Their presence was unobtrusive but always diligent. Communication in an undertaking of this nature is very important and I would like to highlight the exceptional efforts of both Drikus and Solly to keep me informed of progress/snags on a daily basis. This, in turn, made it so much easier for me to 'manage' the residents' expectations. Drikus, in particular, went above and beyond in terms of managing/resolving the left field' niggles that are bound to arise on a contract like this.
Overall, a job exceptionally well done - we would have no hesitation in recommending Paintfellas.
