2013 Best Heritage Renovation/Restoration Winner
This is an impressive Victorian Italianate (Boom Style) brick villa, with asymmetric front elevation and slate roof. A new front garden and front fence set off the restored villa and, set well back so as to not visually compete with the original and not be visible from the street, is an extension which includes a basement garage.This was a project by Sherbrooke Design & Constructions and painted by VJ Painting Services.
The previously painted exterior has had the paint removed to expose highly decorative polychrome brickwork and rendered stucco exterior window architraves and pediments. This has emphasised the colour and texture of the original building restoring it to its original state.”

To Whom It May Concern
This is a testimonial for VJ Painting Services and Vic Terzievski
We have used Vic and his team for many years now following word of mouth referral. Hehas painted 3 of our properties. These were Victorian, Federation and modern.
We have gone back to him each time because of the standard of his work. He maintains the property as well asjust decoratorating. Although more costly at the time, we have found that this hassaved us money in the longer term as windows and doors do not rot out later. He has painted and hung wall paper for us.
He has been able to provide colour consultantsand handy men when we require. The standard of work is extremely high, the staff honest reliable and polite. Vic is closely involved with overseeing every painting job, and will tend to finish on time.
We recommend him and will continue to use his firm.
Hello Vic and Jamie
I’m writing to you to say thank you formally and properly for the painting of my art deco apartment in Elwood. It’s terrific and has given the place a wonderful, well deserved lift. It was once everything was back in place, dusted and cleaned, with tulips in the vases and my newly adopted kitty, Rocky Gorgeous moved in, that I really felt at home and could appreciate all your hard work. Family, friends (including the fussy ones) and even tradesmen (including window cleaners) have commented on the attention to detail and the great paint job, in particular to the all white French doors, sash windows and skirting boards. I’m delighted with the preparation, paint work and tidy up. The place looks great in all the different lights of day with the paintings and decor looking much better, as well against the new backdrop of the fresh paint.
