Residential Testimonials

At Jonathan Luby Painters we pride ourselves on being one of the very best House Painting Contractors in Adelaide

“Mr. Luby and his team had the contract for painting and decorating our 140 year old stone cottage. There was the need to finish by Xmas and the added urgency of readying the house for a wedding reception in the first week of the New Year. Despite a start delayed by the building contractor, Jonathan and his team pulled out all stops and did a magnificent job, having everything ready in time.”

An extra challenge was a limestone wall that had been painted with a 1950’s pale green paint. Rather than using expensive and messy high pressure water jets, Jonathan painted the wall a lime render colour and then highlighted and coloured the individual stones so that the wall became indistinguishable from its non painted neighbour. He also rose to the challenge of restoring a formal sitting room,the walls of which were papered with a collage of cut-outs from 1910 era news magazines. The flour and water glue had been attacked by silver fish and there were bad cracks in the underlying plaster. Jonathan replaced the worst damaged prints with archival pictures downloaded from the Internet and disguised lesser damaged areas with neutral “touch-up” paint, achieving an excellent result.

Clearly, Jonathan Luby is no ordinary housepainter but a true master in his field. We are delighted to commend his work.

We are thrilled to bits- your brilliant job has enhanced our new little abode no end.

Michael & Margaret Turner
“Jonathan’s work was far beyond what I had hoped for. His eye to detail and suggestion of colour made me feel is was living in Morocco. Suggesting to paint the porch floor in a Moorish design was an incredible idea. I would recommend Jonathan and his team without a moments hesitation. They were polite, clean and very professional.”
Loredana Catalano
“Dear Jonathan, thank you very much for the outstanding work that you and your skilled team have done on our house. Most of the wood and paint work in a poor state and you have meticulously treated and repainted the timber so that it is restored to an excellent condition.
It was so refreshing and quite a new experience to have people working here who exceeded our expectations in all respects. Your ?hand-picked? team were courteous, considerate and knowledgeable and with everything they did they went the extra mile.
Thank you Jonathan for all your invaluable advice and the care taken with painting our house. We are very grateful that you were recommended to us and will certainly engage you for further work.”
Jacquie & Jim Wilson

We have really appreciated your efficiency, professionalism and excellent quality of workmanship.
We will certainly call upon you in the future when we require further paint work to be done and will have no hesitation in recommending your work to family and friends.”
Janine & John Emsley
“In 2003 we engaged Jonathan Luby to undertake the internal and external repainting of our large 19th century house as part of extensive renovations.

The scope of the work was unpredictable as the walls had originally been painted with calcimine, and decades of subsequent paint layers had to be removed and the calcimine washed off and sealed before the finishing coats could be applied.

Jonathan prepared all the surfaces he worked on with utmost care and thoroughness. He then used a variety of paint techniques and finishes, some of them quite complicated to achieve the richness and depth of colour and texture we wanted. He was willing to experiment with new ideas and make them work, drawing on has extensive experience with decorative paint finishes. He has an exceptional understanding of colour and was willing to create the colours and finishes we envisaged even though it sometimes meant painting a large number of large samples.

Jonathan’s workmanship and attention to detail were outstanding. Due to the size of our job it was necessary for him to employ other painters to help with the work, and his team was dedicated, competent, amenable and justly proud of their work. We have ended up with a paint job of the highest possible quality and a distinctive home we are delighted with and proud of.

Jonathan Luby is no ordinary painter. He is one of a very rare breed of talented craftsmen who are dedicated to the work they love and who are content with producing nothing but the best. We have no hesitation in highly recommending him to any prospective clients.”
