Interior Painting

Transform, Refresh, and Redefine Your Home with our Interior Painting Service

Walls & Ceilings - General Living Areas

Transforming your living rooms, bedrooms, or hallways with a fresh coat of paint is a breeze when you entrust the job to our capable hands.

We begin by meticulously preparing surfaces.
Before anything else, we take special care to ensure no traces of grease or other residues on the walls and ceilings, especially in kitchen areas. These sneaky culprits can jeopardise the adhesion of your new paint system. If we encounter any grease or grime, we wash the area with sugar soap. This thorough cleansing creates an optimal surface for the paint to adhere beautifully.

Cracks on walls and ceilings can be a common nuisance caused by the natural movements of your house, as Auckland’s clay soils swell with water in winter and dry out in summer. But worry not, for our skilled team has the perfect solution. We expertly apply a strong and durable fibreglass mesh over the cracks. This reinforcement not only fixes the cracks but also reduces the chance of them reappearing in the future. The result? A flawless finish that truly stands the test of time.

Attention to detail is vital to us on any job. We take the necessary time to fill holes, ensuring a seamless surface. Once the preparation work is complete, we sand, creating a smooth canvas ready to paint.

Once all the prep work is complete, we spot prime and apply two coats of premium Dulux or Resene paint.

If you find yourself in need of guidance when it comes to selecting the perfect colour scheme, we are here to help. Our knowledgeable team can advise you on the most popular combinations. And suppose you desire an expert’s touch. In that case, we can even connect you with a Resene Colour Consultant, who will help turn your vision into reality. Best of all, this service comes at no cost to you.

Walls & Ceilings - Wet Areas

When painting wet areas like bathrooms or closed-plan kitchens, we understand the unique considerations involved.

Our expertise ensures results that withstand high humidity/steam in these spaces.

While painting wet areas shares similarities with painting general living areas, there are crucial differences to be mindful of.

If any mould is present, our team treats it with a specialised mould-killing solution, effectively neutralising spores and significantly reducing the chances of recurrence.

In the past, it was common practice to paint wet areas with oil-based enamels.  However, these paints have fallen out of favour for good reasons.  Over time, they turn yellow and brittle, and their strong odour can be off-putting.  We thoroughly test your previous coating when upgrading your wet areas to a modern paint system.  This crucial step helps us identify the type of paint used, allowing us to select the appropriate primer and ensure a stable finished product that won’t prematurely peel.

For wet areas, we highly recommend top coat systems specifically formulated to handle the unique demands of these spaces.  Our go-to choices include Resene SpaceCote Flat Kitchen & Bathroom and Dulux Wash & Wear Kitchen & Bathroom, designed to inhibit mould growth and promote a hygienic environment.  Furthermore, they are specially formulated to withstand the high humidity in wet areas, ensuring your paint remains pristine for years.

Timber Joinery

When painting timber joinery, which includes skirting boards, window frames, window sashes, doors, and door frames, we understand the importance of precision and attention to detail.  

Whether it’s for an interior or exterior project, we take pride in delivering exceptional results that enhance the natural charm of timber while ensuring long-lasting durability.

Identifying the previous coating is a crucial step in the process.  Older homes may have these areas painted with outdated enamel systems.  Using the incorrect primer can lead to paint system failure.  That’s why we assess and determine the existing coating to choose the suitable primer, ensuring compatibility and optimal performance.

To achieve a flawless finish, thorough preparation work is essential. We take the time to meticulously fill any holes and cracks, ensuring a seamless surface. Our skilled team employs flexible and paintable silicon filler for areas prone to cracking, ensuring resilience and preventing future issues. We also sand any sharp corners, providing a more rounded profile that enhances the aesthetic appeal and prevents premature paint failure.

Selecting the right paint is crucial, considering the high wear and tear that timber joinery areas endure. We recommend using a modern, water-based enamel paint that offers exceptional durability. Unlike older oil-based systems, water-based paints have numerous advantages. They are more flexible, result in a smoother and more attractive finish.  Moreover, they do not yellow with age, maintaining their original appeal.  Our preferred choices are Resene Lustacryl and Dulux Aquanamel, renowned for their outstanding resistance to daily use and ability to withstand time.

Experience the transformation of your timber joinery with our expertise and commitment to excellence. Contact us today to find out the cost of painting your project, and let our skilled team bring out the true beauty and resilience of your timber surfaces.

Garage Floors

Transforming your garage floor with a fresh coat of paint enhances its appearance and provides a cleanable surface that surpasses the limitations of garage carpets.

When painting garage floors, we understand the importance of thorough preparation.  The old floors often accumulate dirt, dust, and unsightly oil or grease stains.  To ensure optimal adhesion of the newly painted surface, our team diligently cleans the floor, removing any contaminants that may compromise the paint’s performance.  We allow ample time for the surface to dry thoroughly, guaranteeing a solid foundation for the painting process.

Garage floors take a beating, so we recommend a comprehensive four-coat system.  Our preferred approach involves using Resene ArmourBond as the sealer, followed by three coats of Resene Aquapoxy for the top coat. This two-pack epoxy system provides exceptional durability and a hard-wearing finish that can withstand the demands of a garage environment.  Not only will your garage floor look fantastic, but it will also stand up to heavy use and remain resilient over time.

Wallpaper Stripping / Painting Over

When it comes to interior painting, Go 1 Day Painting excels in all aspects of the process, including wallpaper stripping. With our expertise and attention to detail, we ensure that every project is carried out seamlessly, leaving your walls ready for a fresh and flawless paint finish.

Whether you need to remove wallpaper from a single wall or an entire house, our experienced team is equipped to handle jobs of any size. We understand that everyone’s budget is different, so we offer flexible solutions to suit your needs. If you’re looking for a cost-effective option to refresh your home, we can also paint over the existing wallpaper. However, it’s important to note that if the wallpaper has texture, it may still be visible under the paint.

Once the wallpaper is stripped, we meticulously inspect the condition of the walls. Typically, wallpapered walls have  a wallpaper standard plastered surface. To achieve a smooth and impeccable paint finish, our skilled professionals will likely skim coat the walls with plaster compound which will bring them to a standard suitable for painting.  This process ensures a flawless surface and allows the paint to adhere beautifully, resulting in a stunning transformation of your interior space.

Problems We Help With

Peeling Paint

Peeling paint on gib walls or ceilings can be a sign of moisture issues or incorrect/lack of primer being used. The peeling paint must be removed before applying your new system to reduce the chance of the issue recurring.


This can be a sign of poor ventilation or a leaky roof, after the underlying issue is corrected, the affected area is treated with a spore killing product, oil primed to prevent stains bleeding through and top coated with a mould resistant product. 

Cracked Walls/Ceilings

Cracks in your GIB are caused by movement of your house, it’s common in NZ due to our clay soils expanding and contracting between wet and dry seasons.  To reduce the chance of recurrence we use fibre glass tape to reinforce cracks before plastering and painting.

Missing Insulation

This is also known as ghosting.  It’s caused by missing patches of insulation in the ceiling which results in hot/cold spots, condensation and dirt accumulation or mould growth.  Ghosting usually has sharp boundaries or repeating patterns.
