What our customers say

It has been wonderful having Bakers & Co here. They are prompt, professional and left excellent results.

Dayle Boyer - Greenslopes


From the day of the quote to the end of the job, the workers were professional and extremely helpful, clean and tidy. Couldn’t be happier with the end result!

Carmen Farrant - Mount Cotton


I am very appreciative of the outstanding work and the way the job was completed. Everyone was courteous and professional (and arrived on time!). A special thanks to Mitch who as well as doing a great job, was very considerate and respectful of my aged parent who was home during the work. I was surprised that a large operation could offer such good personal service. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to get some painting done. I can’t thank you enough. It was a great experience and a great outcome!

Heather Cunningham - Ashgrove


Very happy with Cass and the crew! Neat and tidy during work in progress, very accommodating with the many patch ups and holes in our walls and repaired. Worked well around many other tradespersons in the house.

Tracey Horton - Sunnybank Hills


John and team have been very helpful and have made the whole experience very positive. We would happily recommend Bakers & Co to friends and family. Thank you for a great job.

Alex Meldrum - Wavell Heights


I would like to officially record my appreciation for the excellent quality of workmanship and professional services provided by you on my property at Runcorn. Ray’s team did a wonderful job and I had little to worry about. I also found your cost to be very competitive. I will be pleased to act as a reference to anyone wishing to use your service. Please keep up with the good work. I wish the Bakers & Co team the very best for the future.

Annamale Naicker - Runcorn


The minute I met with Ray, I knew I had made the right choice. Thank you to all the gentlemen who worked in my house to make it happen. Thank you to Rob and his excellent team, job well done! Thank you.

Maya Brown - Calamvale


Extremely happy with the professional service of Bakers & Co. We had a tight time-frame for redecorating the formal lounge, dining area, foyer and stairwell before the new carpets were to be laid. The team of Steve, James, Chris and Lucy did a super job under difficult circumstances. Thanks also to Ray for the organisation! Super job and very happy customers

Gwen Fagence - Albany Creek


There is nothing that Bakers & Co could do better, just keep up the good work! I would like to thank Robbie, Ray and all the boys for a great experience with a great outcome. All of the guys were so kind, courteous and did a great job – even down to looking after Tony the dog. I especially liked the way they were so clean and tidy!

Paula Hatcher - Enoggera


We would recommend Bakers & Co without hesitation. We are very happy with the labour and service of Bakers, very professional.

Ken Hill - Clontarf


Rod and I would like to thank you and your staff, especially Paulie and Ray. Your guys just kept going even when the job seemed never ending. Paulie worked calmly, hard and got everything done. Your staff, especially Paulie, respected my home and family and they were a pleasure to have in my house. I will recommend and brag about Bakers & Co as a first rate business. I have to say in the “Tradie” world good people really are hard to find but your team, led by Ray and Paulie, really were a pleasure. They cracked on in tough times and did a really good job. We were happy to have them in our home everyday and happy with their work.

Nikki Lang - Beachmere


I am extremely happy with the works done, would recommend Bakers & Co to anyone looking at getting painting done. John was very considerate and helpful throughout the project.

Jean Davies - Stafford Heights


You guys did a great job on the exterior of our townhouse complex last year so it was great to see Mitch return to paint the inside of our place. Mitch, Tom and James did a great job. We appreciated Mitch’s advice along the way. We were expecting 8 days of chaos while the paint job proceeded but the experience was painless because of the client-service approach that Mitch and the guys took. Moving furniture back at the end of the day to make the place liveable was a pleasant surprise and it underlines the professional approach taken. We couldn’t be happier with the paint job itself and it is testimony to Mitch and the guys being particular. Well done!

Brian & Julie Moore - East Brisbane


May I extend my special appreciation for the fantastic service your firm provided in the recent painting of our house. From the initial visit by Steve and the painting undertaken by Mitch and George, the professionalism was exemplary. In addition to the speed with which a touch up was undertaken was much appreciated. I would have no hesitation in using your firm again and also referring you to our friends. Once again our many thanks. The garage and house now look fantastic!

Ian Hutcheson - Chapel Hill


All the painters were friendly and helpful. We can see that any extra time taken was because of the pride taken in their work. Very happy!

Patricia Ingram-Johnson - Dutton Park


I’d like to thank Ray, Steve, Alistair and the rest off the team for a fantastic professional experience from the very first inspection and quotation to the final finish on the property. I got one phone call throughout the whole time which was just a minor clarification on part of the scope. Myself and Jodie are absolutely thrilled with our home which looks brand new inside and out! Would recommend Bakers to family and friends, a true testament to the work carried out. Thanks for everything

Colin McDonnell - Ferny Hills


Thank you for your completion of Royal Parade, Alderley. Please thank Ray and all staff for their time during this project. We have already recommended your company to persons in our area whom have commented on how good the appearance of our home is after your work. Once again, thank you!

Wayne Connors - Alderley


I would like to take the opportunity to thank the Bakers Team for the work undertaken on the exterior wall and interior ceiling. The team did an exceptional job. Can you please pass on our thanks to Jonsey, Emma and Matt who were always polite and very hardworking. They were a pleasure to have in our home, we would highly recommend the Bakers Team to our family and friends.

Ross Bradley - Ferny Hills
