Queenslander Painting
& Restoration


Restore your Queenslander’s unique character

Queenslander homes are treasured for their traditional beauty, architecture and character. These classic timber homes have stood the test of time and should be painted with the attention to detail they deserve. However, not all painters have the skills and experience to achieve the high-end finishes that you see on some of Brisbane’s most beautiful Queenslanders.

What makes Queenslanders so appealing also makes them challenging to paint – their age and height, sprawling verandas and soaring ceilings, their window canopies and gables, decorative woodwork, picture rails, breezeways and VJ panelling.

At Signature Painters, we have been painting Queenslanders for over ten years and understand what it takes to get these beautiful homes looking their best. We have both the restoration and painting skills needed, plus loads of experience and attention to detail, along with the right equipment, techniques and products, to restore your Queenslander to its original glory. If you choose us for your Queenslander painting and restoration, you can be assured your house will look amazing! Here’s why.

Why choose Signature Painters for your Queenslander Painting and Restoration


  1. We have team members who are experienced in carpentry repairs, plastering and rendering so we can repair or replace any damage before we begin painting. When quoting, we will identify any areas needing repairs or extra surface preparation to give you an accurate cost estimate.
  2. Should your roof need repainting, we can also carry out roof restoration work beforehand, including patching damaged roof sheets, replacing gutters, repairing window awnings and treating roof algae.
  3. We have the equipment and experience to work at height, so we can offer cost-effective, safe and expert painting of elevated verandas, steeply pitched gables and high Queenslander ceilings.
  4. We are fully insured and highly experienced in lead-based paint removal. With several safe removal options available, we assess each project and its risks to offer you the best solution for your budget.
  5. When it comes to painting and restoring weatherboards and other timber, we have a detailed preparation process. We typically use tungsten blades to ‘shave’ any loose paint off, ‘feather’ the transition between the bare timber and sound paint, sand thoroughly, wash off all dust and grime, apply a solid undercoat, patch using the best fillers, then sand and re-undercoat – all before we apply two full topcoats of a premium exterior paint!
  6. Our preparation of fretwork and VJs is meticulous. It includes sanding, removing thick edges, washing down, undercoating, patching damage, filling cracks and gaps, and priming – as well as expert application of premium paint using the right trade-quality brushes.
  7. We offer a free Dulux colour consultation and digital colour overlay with full interior or exterior repaints so that the end result will reflect what you envisioned. We also provide guidance on finishes such as matte or gloss, and brush or roll finishes.
  8. Our Queenslander workmanship is warrantied for 8 years, so you can be assured of a long-lasting, high-quality finish. We’ve also won a Master Painters Award for our stunning restoration of a Queenslander.
