Ordinary? Or

Ben and The Ordinary Painter crew are far from ordinary. In fact, anyone who has met Ben would say the only thing ordinary is the name… (and perhaps his looks). So why call yourself an ordinary painter?

Because self-promotion does not sit well with us. Any bloke and his mum can self-proclaim excellence. You don’t have to travel far to come across a construction site and hear someone talking absolute BS, claiming themselves “Best Tradie in the World.” We are not here to feed you nonsense because let’s face it… You don't need the next Picasso. We also know that you are not interested in sleazy sales pitches or hearing us gloat about ourselves. What we can do is provide straight-up good painting and customer satisfaction. And don't just take our word for it! Check what our customers have to say. (link to testimonials).

Pete, North Lakes

Ben is no ordinary painter. Super flexible, great insight and recommendations for a top quality job! Would always recommend this top bloke for any painting job!

Trent, Buderim

Ben repainted our Queenslander and did an incredible job. Would hire him again without doubt. Fair price for a professional job.

Ash, Palmwoods

We were fortunate to obtain the professional services of Ben Harris painting the inside of our newly renovated home. Ben's work was first class, showing his array of skills he executed the job on time and with expert quality finishes. We are extremely happy with his work that now reflects a modern beachy style. Highly recommend his services.

Brett, Currimundi

Ben and his team were great to work with! Solid blokes who provide exceptional services and a laugh as well! With an arm span like Ben, its not wonder they got the job completed in record time. Highly recommended.

Drew, Brisbane

We were so grateful for Ben's professional and efficient service when painting the inside of our home. 12 foot high ceilings didn't phase him.
