My name is Derek Holland and I am a Dulux Accredited painter and decorator living in the Vic Park area.

I present myself as a very professional tradesman as a painter & decorator.  I always endeavor to provide excellent customer service and attention to detail to provide a quality finish to all of my clients.  I continually strive to provide ultimate customer satisfaction.   This has resulted in me building up a large client base, and obtaining a good percentage of repeat work.

I have 30+ years of experience in the trade working in mainly the domestic side of the decorating trade, but I have also carried out a number of commercial projects, such as retail shops, restaurants and leisure facilities. 

I have undertaken work in a large variety of quality homes and private dwellings, ranging from painting just one room for a client to carrying out a full redecoration including all types of wall coverings and paint effects in a ten bedroom mansion.

I ran my own very successful business in the United Kingdom for 13 years, before immigrating to Perth in 2005.  I employed several quality staff on a full time basis, and also provided a training program to several apprentices in that time.  One of those apprentices has now gone on to run his, own successful business and I would like to think I had some influence on that. 

Since being in Perth I have been trading under the above name and continue to provide the same level of quality workmanship and customer service to continue to add to the client base that I have already achieved.

I was registered as a Dulux select decorator for five years prior to leaving the United Kingdom, the similar scheme in Australia being Dulux Accredited, which I am now a member of.  This is an accolade only given to quality painters & decorators who meet a high standard of workmanship and customer service.  This is a guarantee for the standard of work that I carry out and the quality of finish that I provide.  I have a City & Guilds of London Institute trade qualification.

I have provided a list of all the types of work that I carry out as follows:-

  • All tools, equipment and drop sheets provided
  • Full preparation of all areas to be carried out (excluding major plastering work)
  • Materials for individual projects (optional)
  • All types of painting using oil based and acrylic based paints
  • Paint effects i.e. rag-rolling, sponging and dragging
  • An extensive range of wall coverings from blown vinyl’s to hand printed wallpapers
  • Interior and exterior work undertaken
  • Willing to travel within the Perth metro area
