Here is why you should choose MDC Decorating Specialists for your next painting project:


Drone Technology

We have a state of the art DJI Mavic pro 2 drone that can be used to conduct roof inspections and for before and after project videos. This tool is especially great for clients who are not around when the painting is undertaken due to other commitments. We can send footage of the painting job via Dropbox for them to download and check on the progress. It can also be used for time lapse videos as well as allows me to project manage which frees you of having to do it which makes for a stress-free transition.

Quote Request

Advanced Quoting Technology

We can pinpoint measurements and dimensions using precise accuracy with a laser. This enables us to provide a quick and exact quote for the products needed and time duration required for the m2. In addition, we use the latest software to instantly email you a quote before leaving the site, we are able to adjust items promptly and the specification gives a highly detailed report for each area/room. Each area is broken down in terms of time and the product usage amount so you can see how much each thing costs.

Could not get Marc to return to repair his work that was faulty. Also all of the paint was taken away by them at the... finish of the job and I did not have touch up paint to try and fix the repair s myself. I repeatedly contacted Marc for a return date which he always subsequently cancelled. My last request has been completely ignored. This was an expensive job and I paid above the quoted price but have been left hugely more

We are extremely delighted to review MDC as a company of young professionals who have really stood out in difficult... times.Marc, at first contact impressed with his instant understanding of the painting required and then his follow up communication which was prompt and respectful.We were further impressed with the enthusiasm of the young painter scheduled to paint our new fence and sections of house. He efficiently painted, in quite hot weather, leaving us with no doubt of his skill and experience.As repeat owners of new builds, we haven’t always experienced a tradesperson demanding this kind of perfection of himself.We have a beautifully completed project, finished in a good timeframe without splatter or drips on existing surfaces.Thank you, you really go the distance to please.G and G Poyser, Sanctuary more

I am so happy with the professionalism of Marc and his team. Not only did Marc turn up on time, complete the enormous... task in the allocated time frame but he also completed extra work that was not scheduled. Marc is competitive, thorough, friendly, helpful and honest. I managed to get through an enormous and very stressful renovation because Marc restored my faith in tradespeople and went out of his way to get the job done. I would highly recommend MDC to anyone looking for a professional and high quality job done ON TIME.Thank you so more

Marc Painter Gold Coast

Hi and welcome! I’m Marc Cairns the owner and director of MDC Decorating Specialists PTY LTD. We are a family based and run business that exclusively services the beautiful Gold Coast region. MDC Decorating Specialists originated in the UK. This is where I gained my skills and spent 19 years in the painting industry, building up my portfolio. When starting MDC Decorating Specialists, I knew I wanted to offer my customers something special, not just another run of the mill painting shop. A lot of thought and consideration went into our business name. Here is how we came up with it:

Decorating – We undertake all forms of painting jobs including interior and exterior, regardless of whether the job is big or small or high or low set. We approach all decorating jobs with enthusiasm and extensive painting knowledge to produce a superior result. 

Specialists – Providing the highest standard of workmanship and exceptional customer service is at the forefront of my business and my uttermost priority. I do this by applying the extensive knowledge I have gained within the painting industry from all parts of the world including, the UK, USA, Spain, France, Tenerife, Africa and more. I have spent years living and working in other countries which has provided me with an in-depth understanding of every style of painting technique and how to apply it correctly and efficiently each time. I have experience providing specialist customer service within the UK government and the Ministry of Defence which has given me thorough knowledge on how to resolve any problem that may arise effectively and with minimal stress. Leadership to some degree has many components of good management however, you must inspire and build strong foundations of trust to succeed. For a business such as ours to not only be good but great, we produce work that exceeds our customers’ expectations and commit to participation larger than the job description. We believe this is what sets us apart. 



We believe in maintaining the highest standards when it comes to painting, paint products and services. But don't just take our word for it. Here's what our customers are saying about MDC Decorating Specialists

Marc did a wonderful job painting our house! He fixed all the cracks in the wall and worked extremely hard to finish the job as possible (which meant he worked late into the night) so we could move in. Highly recommended.

Jacqueline Michelle

Marc, has done a fantastic job for me, and offered some really good advise right the way through the project.He came in to a partially finished job, and has totally transformed the look of the house. He kept the place very neat and tidy at all time and worked hard to get the job done on time. I have no hesitations in recommending Marc to anyone.

John Dickinson

Great quality in service and workmanship. A friendly, helpful and true craftsman. I will be sure to use again and highly recommend.

Ash White

Right from the initial quote through to completion nothing was too much trouble. Marc's workmanship and attention to detail was faultless and completion on time enabled us to get our house on the market for sale and achieve an excellent result. I have no hesitation in recommending MDC Decorating Specialists for value, exceptional quality and first class service.
