About us

Paint quality & application does matter

PJ Carmody has been painting surfaces in Brisbane for over two decades. It is our mission to give each substrate the right cover so that your project has the best protection. Our business has grown in reputation because we listen to our customers and continue to deliver what they need and want.

Our company only uses the highest quality paint in order to provide the longest lasting results. We select superior paint products such as Dulux because once you have used other brands - the comparison is clear. Premium paints may cost more initially but the appearance, adherence, durability and longevity will outlast lower grade paints by far.

Shade sails and blinds for the Qld climate

The Queensland climate can range from perfect weather to sweltering hot days. The harsh Queensland sun not only damages outdoor surfaces but reduces the time we can comfortably use these areas. With this in mind we have specifically designed shade sails and shade blinds to withstand the sun in the South East. The materials we use are the strongest on the Qld market and are guaranteed to offer sun protection  and comfort for your outdoor areas, all-year-round.

Our workmanship and product is guaranteed

As leading professional paint contractors, shade blind installers and epoxy flooring specialists we guarantee all our workmanship and product performance for 5 years. Therefore, our customers can have peace of mind when it comes to residential painting, commercial painting and product installation.

Our precise workmanship, job referrals and unrivalled safety record confirms each project is performed above industry standard, resulting in customer satisfaction.

Paul Carmody

"I started this business over 15 years ago as a fully trained apprentice painter - trained in the traditional methods of painting. Back then it was compulsory to be hands on over a 4-year apprenticeship, as well as attend TAFE. Nowadays a lot of apprenticeships are online, and you can certainly tell the difference in workmanship because professional painting is a hands on skill that is developed over time. I am very hands on when it comes to my profession as a painter and only have skilled painters on staff. This ensures our business continuously delivers a quality job, each and every time".

  • We recently used PJ Carmody for a full repaint of our house on the Southside Brisbane. We were so impressed by their professional and reliable service. The house looks incredible and we couldn’t be happier.
