When I asked Toby Birch to paint the exterior of my Darwin house, I had high expectations. Toby and his team of 4 have far exceeded those expectations. Toby is world-class. He leads by example: always punctual, always present on site, working alongside his team. Surfaces are prepared meticulously, enabling perfection in the finished result. Excellent colour adviser.

This job, which in earlier years using other painters has dragged on for weeks, was completed in 10.5 working days by Toby and team. We are fortunate to have such quality services in Darwin. Let’s ensure Toby remains here, to continue to set the benchmark. Highest recommendation.

Toby from Definitive Decorating was easily the best tradesman we had whilst re-modelling our home. With his ability to see the finished product, his help with colour choices to match our new kitchen and floors is certainly something we could never have done ourselves. Punctual, clean, flexible and priced fairly, I would recommend Toby and his team to anyone.

We got Toby to come and oil our large deck and railings. He was very prompt, turned up at the time he said he would and did a very neat and professional job. We would certainly get Toby back to do any future work for us.

WOW…….What a refreshing change to have someone not only turn up on time, but do a wonderful job. After having the builders do our renovation over the last few months we contacted Definitive Decorating to organize a quote for the painting needed to finish the project. Right from the get go through to the end product, Toby and his team were a pleasure to have around.


Clean, tidy and very accommodating, not to mention patient when I decided to change colours at the last minute. His attention to detail really made the difference.


They say it’s the painting that can make or break the finished article, and these guys certainly ‘Made’ it. Would not hesitate in recommending Toby & his team.

We had Toby re-paint our house and he was absolutely fantastic from start to finish. Extremely professional in his demeanor and in his craft. His work covered a large scope with giving us great decorating advice, plastering and rendering patch work and a fine hand at our cornice and door frames. Always on time and got the job done as quickly as possible without cutting any corners, his perfection showed through his work. Not only was he a clean and tidy worker, but you wouldn't of known he was there for the day which showed a great consideration to our family living in his work space. Incredibly happy with Toby and can't recommend him enough.

Thanks again for all your hard work!

We were extremely happy with the job we got from Definitive Decorating. Toby's attention to detail is excellent and it is obvious he enjoys what he does and takes pride in doing a job well. Part of the painting job Toby did for us involved repainting old metal work.  The way he prepared the metal and the products he used meant the end result was like brand new.  His service and manner were excellent and he was always happy to accommodate any changes or alterations we had.  We would definitely use him again - in fact we have him booked in to repaint the bathroom!
