About Mettes Painting

Our Story

High Quality Residential & Commercial Painting Since 1958

Many Victorians are familiar with the well established Mettes name for their painting needs. Mettes Painting was founded by Johannes Mettes in 1958. An immigrant from Holland, John, as he was known, established a name for himself in Victoria as a knowledgeable, trustworthy, professional painter. His sons, Barend (Bob) and Anthony (Tony) later followed suit.
In 1982 John passed away and Bob carried on with the business until he returned to Holland for a few years in the late 80’s. It was at that time that Tony, who had initially established himself in the hospitality industry in Victoria, working at Laurel Point, the Chateau Victoria, and the Hotel Grand Pacific, decided to bring his hospitality background to Mettes Painting. Tony re-established Mettes Painting and Decorating Ltd. and has proved to be an understanding, accommodating businessman. Often working weekends to get a job done, Tony is known for his attention to detail, his caring attitude, 

and his willingness to go above and beyond expectation for his clients. And the caring doesn’t begin and end with Tony – the entire Mettes crew is on board with Tony’s passion for service excellence! The Mettes painters are like family. They’ve been with the company for many years and they consistently deliver the Mettes brand of service with professionalism and pride.
Tony, now president and owner of Mettes Painting, is committed to providing consistent quality backed up by over 60 years of combined knowledge and experience. Tony and crew are proud to carry on the family tradition as a professional, trustworthy, knowledgeable, friendly, and caring company.
