Over the past few months Art Additions Painters have been carrying out the work of repainting my property, an historic house and shop at North Cottesloe, 6011 Point known as Antiques & Angels. It has been a long and complex job during months of atrocious weather . As well as the problems of the weather they have had to fit in with the builders who were carrying out extensive maintenance at the same time. They undertook detailed and meticulous preparation of surfaces and took considerable trouble to arrive at a finish that looks terrific. Skirmantis and his team have been patient and uncomplaining, happy to test out colours by painting patches on walls and always eager to give satisfaction. Their approach has been utterly professional and careful, they really take an old fahioned pride in their workmanship and I am happy to recommend them without hesitation.

I am pleased to be able to wholeheartedly recommend Art Additions Painters who have just completed a re-paint of my house. My two level house (near the sea) had been poorly painted in the past and was well overdue for a paint. Skirmantis Saltis and his team have done an excellent job in preparing and painting the house. The team are skilled and hard working, and Saltis maintained excellent communication throughout the job, checking work every step of the way and repeatedly making sure that I was happy with the job. Nothing was a hassle and and any (minor) issues that arose were dealt with quickly and with good humour. The end result is a high quality paint job which has transformed the look of the house. Neighbours are asking who painted the house and I have happily and confidently recommended Art Additions to them. Through my work over the years I have worked with a number of commercial and residential painters none of which have been as easy to deal with or as customer service focussed. None has provided such a quality end result either. Thanks Skirmantis and team! I look forward to engaging you in the future when we next need painting work done.

Art Additions do an excellent job. Skirmantas quoted for our jobs efficiently and, as promised, delivered jobs at the time he promised and kept in touch all the way through the jobs. He offers helpful suggestions along the way and attends to the inevitable repairs and replacements that appear during a paint job. We were referred to Art Additions and have in turn referred them to others. A strongly recommended tradesman.

This is just a short note to let you know that both the homes listed above were sold for prices that met the vendor expectations and I believe that these prices would not have been realised had the vendors not employed your services and the advice offered by your company. In consultations with both vendors after their sales I discussed the quality of your workmanship and the standard of professionalism offered and they both told me that they found both you and your team most obliging and committed to their deadline requirements around getting the properties ready for sale on time. Many thanks for your assistance to date and may I assure you that I’ll always recommend you and your company in future.


We commissioned Art Additions & Decorating to paint the whole exterior (walls, doors, windows, roof, gutters, downpipes etc.) of our 1920′s weatherboard bungalow in October and November 2011. The existing paintwork was in a pretty bad way, especially on the north and western walls, which were cracked and peeling. Furthermore over the decades there had been a buildup of several coats of paint, in many places over previously peeled weatherboards leaving then unsightly and uneven. The Art Additions team completely stripped and sanded the 1920′s part of the house, and sanded back where necessary the newer extension, and virtually renovated the windows, many of which also had been in a pretty bad state. Preparation was meticulous and then the team primed, filled, sanded and then two further coats. We were very pleased with the quality of the finish and workmanship. The team were very hard working, professional and very polite and courteous throughout.
