We love our local Freo community!
Along with helping the community, beautifying and restoring Fremantle buildings through our painting services is what we love best! From heritage-listed houses and commercial buildings to applying TLC to an array of much-loved Freo icons, here are a few of our favourite Freo projects.
Colourific J-Shed restoration, Fremantle
This iconic Fremantle landmark was not only in need of a new paint job to brighten things up, but to maintain the building itself.
Like many homes and buildings in Fremantle, it’s location by the sea. The harsh westerly winds had taken it’s toll over the years; a toll that the occupiers simply couldn’t afford or raise the cash donations for.
We saw this as the perfect chance to step in and donate our time, expertise and knowledge to save this old historic Fremantle building.
Our painting work on many of Fremantle’s heritage buildings put us in good stead for this building restoration work. You can see from the before and afters picture what a difference we made, we’re proud Fremantle painters.
“On behalf of everyone at J-Shed, we’d like to thank Colourific Painting Contractors for donating their time to saving this great building. We were so pleased when Bruce and his team agreed to volunteer… From start to finish, Bruce and his team worked tirelessly and professionally…. I have no hesitation in recommending Colourific’s workmanship, skills and professionalism to any painting and decorating required.”

Apprenticeship scheme – Our Perth painters community
Fostering the next generation of painters is vital to keeping the skills, knowledge & expertise going in the Building & Construction industry. That’s why we see it as an integral part of our business model to indenture an apprentice within Colourific. Our current Apprentice is Natasha, she came to us as a ‘mature age’ in 2016 and she has a bright future in the industry. She has just been awarded the Master Painters Associations – APPRENTICE OF THE YEAR. Well done Natasha! (and SM Tafe)
Film & Television Institute Building (FTI) – building restoration, Fremantle
This grand old dame of Freo was our next goodwill project. With its cathedral high ceilings & walls, this was quite the job for the team.
Being so extremely proud of our Fremantle painting roots for over 30 years, helping to maintain the FTI building was forefront on our minds – giving back to the Fremantle area that has been the home for so many of our loyal customers & clients over the years.
Our painters have demonstrated expertise working on prized historic buildings, taking care of everything from a fresh coat of exterior paint, replacement of fascias and corroded downpipes, repair and reglazing of timber windows, right through to intricate detailing of cornices, architraves and ceiling roses.
