Michael receiving the Master Painters Award for Customer Service

Courtney & Wise has its origins in 1954, when the company’s founder, John Peters OAM, came into the trade after serving his four year indenture to Master Painter, Bob Ross.

Applying the skills acquired under the tutelage of such a Master and with a total commitment to quality workmanship, John went on to establish Courtney & Wise. 60 years later, we are one of Sydney’s premier home painting companies built on a focus for quality and a reputation for excellence.

Today the company is headed by John’s son, Michael Peters who like his father, went through the same rigorous process to learn all practical and theoretical aspects of the painting and decorating trade. Proving that he was up to the extremely high standard set by his father, Michael received the prestigious NSW Apprentice of the Year Award upon his graduation from Sydney Technical College in 1981.

Past President and Vice-President of the Master Painters Association Michael continues to make an active contribution to the development and promotion of the painting profession. While many painters have come and gone over the past 60 years, their contribution in our continued success has been a significant one.

Our philosophy …

Have the right people with the right skills and the right attitude – painters who demonstrate excellence and a commitment to delivering a result that exceeds our customer’s expectations, every time.
