Local family business
Darren is the man behind the biz. He’s been working in the painting industry for many years, running teams of painters on a wide range of jobs both commercial and residential. However, local residential demand continued to increase through word-of-mouth and Darren decided to step back into his own neck of the woods and paint Lake Mac.
Darren has built a solid reputation delivering quality and trust. Both very important values aligned with Darren’s beliefs. Giving every job 100% and walking away knowing customer satisfaction is high. Darren was born and bred in Lake Mac and enjoys working and living right here in paradise. Striving for a work-life balance, family time is high on the list, and working locally definitely helps achieve this.

What customers are saying
“Darren delivered on all fronts, quality workmanship, unsurpassed attention to detail whilst always communicating where the job was at and what the next step was.
There are plenty of people out there to paint houses and they can knock it over really quick, but I’m certain there is no one who will take as much pride in delivering a quality finish as Darren did on our place, and that makes all the difference.
I have and will continue to recommenced Darren to anyone wanting a quality job.”

“We thoroughly recommend Lake Mac Painting! Darren and Zac are friendly and incredibly reliable. Appreciating the difficulties we had with colour choices, they went out of their way to help us settle on the paint combinations until we felt happy. The paint job is immaculate and attention to detail is outstanding. Nothing was ever an issue for Darren and Zac – even when we decided mid paint to change our external lighting. 🤭 Our house looks amazing and the paint job has made all the difference 🏡🥰.”
“Darren was fantastic and I can’t recommend him highly enough. He was flexible with working to my uncertain timeframe (I was waiting on a settlement date to confirm the work) and went above and beyond to ensure the work was completed to a very high standard and to time.”

“We were so happy to find Darren & Zach from the Lakemacfamilylife site. Darren was so helpful right from the start, having to please 4 owners of our units ( not an easy feat) choosing the right colours, he had so much patience and some very good advice. They have transformed our units into a real talking point in our neighbourhood, we have had so much positive feedback. Darren and Zach are very professional, polite, and hard-working team. I would highly recommend them..”
I found both Darren and Zac very professional in the way they went about their work. Not only great painters but reliable, tidy, friendly, and mindful not to let the cat out. More than happy to recommend them.
Darren was professional from start to finish. He came out to quote and gave me his expert opinion on colours and paint types which I was grateful for. He and his apprentice kept the house clean and mess to a minimum. He communicated with me the entire time as we were living in the house whilst they worked. I would highly recommend this service. Very professional.
New life has been given to our home with a full freshen-up of the interior completed by Lake Mac Painting. Their service was professional, reliable, and thorough with great preparation and attention to detail. Darren was extremely patient when it came to selecting colours and helped to ensure we ended up with the right white for our home! I would absolutely recommend Lake Mac Painting to anyone looking to transform the look and feel of their home! Thanks, guys!
“We ended up getting Darren to paint our bathrooms at very short notice on the lead up to selling our house…Darren is very cost effective, no fuss, and his attention to detail is second to none! Highly recommended…we will definitely be acquiring his services again once we settle into the new house. Thanks mate!!!!”
“Excellent consultation before and during the job. Helped me find the perfect colours for my home. So much care for the smaller details. The finish is perfect. Such a beautiful result, thank you Darren 😊 I am very happy!!”
“These boys brought life back to our dated weatherboard home. Darren understood our love of colorbond colours and love of natural timbers. This love and understanding delivered a result that we couldn’t have dreamed of. We are besotted with our fresh looking home.
Darren delivers a quality service in all aspects of the job. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Lake Mac Painting.”

“⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ If you want a five-star painting job I would recommend Lake Mac Painting, Darren and Zach, two very professional painters. From helping us to choose the internal room colours to the preparation and the painting they are the best. Nothing was a problem, easy to communicate with and very reliable . Value for money.”
“Had a great experience with Lake Mac Painting who recently painted our home. Darren was most professional and obliging right from the quoting stage through to the last stroke, and we couldn’t be happier with the finished result. The attention to detail and quality of the workmanship was first class, and we have had many favourable comments on how the new paint scheme has brought the home right up to date. We would have no hesitation in recommending Darren and Lake Mac Painting – 5 stars from us.”
