As the name suggests, Highton is located in the Barrabool Hills, west of the city of Geelong.
The Barwon River winds around the northern and eastern boundaries of Highton, while the Princes Highway skirts the western side.
However Highton was not named for its altitude, but rather for the grazier John Highett, who had property in the area. Montpellier Park is the site of the original property.
A township developed in the area, and soon boasted a population for 300 people, and vineyards and orchards flourished.
Farms became residential areas in the 1950s. Residents enjoyed the views from the hills.
Development is still happening in Highton, and the population is approximately 18,000 people.
Highton Primary School was the first school, dating back all the way to 1854.
The post-war growth brought two more primary schools in the 1960s, and Christian College is an independent primary/secondary school which opened in 1980.
The Deakin University Waurn Ponds Campus is in the next suburb.
In Highton’s north, tucked into a curve in the Barwon River, is Queens Park, where we find the Queens Park Golf Club, along with cricket, football, and netball clubs.

You have most likely realized the huge effect that colour has on our everyday lives, the emotions that different colours bring up in us. Orange and yellow are positive upbeat colours; red is attention getting, often signalling something that you need to know about; blue can be a very calming colour.
The emotional effect of colours is also true inside the home. Dark colours make rooms seem small and intimate; light colours make rooms seem bigger and fresher.
The colours you choose to paint your walls and surfaces need to reflect you as a person; an upbeat person is going to struggle looking at walls coloured beige and brown, while vivid reds, pinks and purples may not be the suitable for a person with a more conservative nature.
We are the painting company that can help you make your home feel like home, a place where you can relax and be who you want to be. If you need any help in this regard, our professional painting contractors can help and guide you in the current trends of the industry, and instruct you in the best colour choices for the mood and atmosphere you wish to create.
Now, we don’t only paint the insides of your house. Our painting contractors also paint the exteriors, and not only that, they can paint your roofs, your fences, and all of your outdoor entertainment areas likes your patios, porches and decks.
And we don’t only service residential home owners either. We understand that business owners, store managers, property managers and other commercial and corporate business representatives also require painting services, and we are more than happy to fulfil those services for you.

Our Painters Highton Services
One of the best ways of imparting our personality on our house is through painting the interior walls, doors and surfaces. This is especially the case if we have bought the house from a previous owner. Dark colours make rooms seem more intimate; light colours make them seem larger. But even more than that, a fresh coat of paint can help protect your walls, by giving them a barrier against moisture and insects, which can wreak havoc on any interior surfaces.
Painting your exteriors can be expensive, but if you consider it an investment you might be surprised with the return of investment it returns. It is estimated that the increase in property value due to a professional painting job performed on your exterior surfaces is approximately 140% of the cost of the job itself. But as with painting your interiors, painting your exteriors also protects your exterior surfaces from the ravages of mother nature; rain, wind, insects and animals can cause great damage to any uncovered or partly covered exterior surface.
The first thing a client sees when they arrive at your place of business – or a customer sees when they come to your shop, or a potential renter sees when they see your rental property – is likely to be your building exterior. Even when they enter the business, they will take note, even if subconsciously, of the look and colour of your interior walls. Your exteriors and interiors need to be painted in such a way that they complement rather than detract from the core values of your business. Do you want to be seen as vibrant? Then have a vibrant colour scheme. Do you want to be considered as comforting? Then ensure you have a soothing colour scheme.
Being your roof is a tough job. You have to be up there, in the sun, wind, rain and hail 24/7/365. Your roof needs a little love every now and then to protect it against the elements, and one of the cheapest ways of doing that is by giving it a fresh coat of paint. Paint provides a barrier between the elements and the roof surface. It protects the surface against things like moss and lichen, and while that seems like a little, unimportant thing, it really isn’t. Moss and lichen soaks up water, holding the water to the roof surface … and anyone who has seen rust and rotten wood knows that water, over time, can ruin roofs, leading to leaks and the need for roof repairs. Painting your roof helps protect your roof.
DECK, PATIO AND PORCH PAINTING
We not only provide painting services for your deck, patio and porch, we also provide staining services. Whichever option you choose, painting or staining your outdoor entertainment areas will make them look great, and not only that, it will protect them from the elements. These areas can become slippery in the wet, or become warped and provide tripping hazards, but painting or staining can help prevent those issues.
We provide painting and staining services for your fence. Paint and stain both provide protection to your fence, as well as a great and beautiful look that will last a long time. Fences, particularly wooden fences, often get affected by the rain and dirt and can begin to look old and rotten. This gives your property an insecure look, as your fence is supposed to guard your property from the outside world. Painting and staining your fence protects it, allowing your property to retain its sense of security … something that might be particularly important if you are selling your house.
So, give us a call today. We are looking forward to hearing from you. Or you can leave your details in the Contact Form above and we will get back to you in no time.
