“PROUDLY painting Geelong since 1938” is the mantra at Hope’s Painting, also known as Hope’s City to Surf Painting.

Based in Torquay and servicing the Surf Coast, Bellarine and wider Geelong region, the Hopes have been in the painting industry for over eight decades.

Owned by husband and wife Shayne and Shari- Anne Hope, Shayne began his career working for the family business before branching out on his own in 1993 with City to Surf Painting.

In 2011, the couple took over Hope’s Painting and merged the two business ventures together to create Hope’s City to Surf Painting.

“My grandfather Erwin (Joey) Hope first began providing professional painting services in 1934 and not long after started the Hopes Painting business,” Shayne said.

“In 1968, my father Robert Hope followed in his father’s footsteps and continued the Hopes Painting tradition for the next 33 years.

“Over the 33 years, dad apprenticed his four sons Darryn, Joel, Justyn and me, teaching us how to produce a high-quality painting finish as well as property maintenance and repairs.”

Shayne and Shari-Anne’s daughter, Dannielle, has been assisting with administration and quoting since 2015.

With a wealth of experience in the trade, Shayne’s love for the job and dedication to the craft is based on a client-centred focus.

“We enjoy the satisfaction of seeing the transformation of a house in despair to a state of magnificence which we know will give many years of enjoyment to our happy customers,” he said.

“We can assist our customers with interior and exterior painting services for residential and property maintenance requirements. We also work on major industrial/commercial building or refurbishment projects with our painters, working closely with project managers, builders and architects to establish the right painting productsare used to ensure the longevity of the finish.”

Hope’s City to Surf Painting is a Duluxaccredited painter, offering a five-year warranty to all clients. Shayne and his team hold verified painting licences as well as public liability insurance.

The business also offers free, no-obligation quotes to all clients and discounted rates over winter.
