PASSION FOR PAINTING

2017 Master Painters NZ overall winners in the "Residential New Interior Over $25k" and the “Residential Intergrain New Timber (Interior)” categories and a Gold Award Winner in “Residential Wallcoverings”.

The jobs we work on represent our clients, they’re their homes, their work places & their investments – unique spaces with history & personality. They deserve to be treated with respect; finished to a high standard, with care & thought poured into every element. From the biggest features to the smallest details, we provide premium painting, decorating, plastering & earthquake repair for homes & businesses throughout Canterbury.

  • DO IT ONCE, DO IT RIGHT

    On any project there are a number of things our clients demand, including value for money, attention to detail, and speed. We consistently manage to achieve all three by blending years of hands-on industry experience with a systematic approach. Our skilled team work efficiently to save both time and money, while the exacting standards we set for ourselves ensure a quality finish, every time.

  • PLANNING

    Before we can ‘blow your mind’, we need to know exactly what you ‘have in mind’! We’ll sit down with you, learn about your vision, and offer insights into how you can achieve the very best results. We’ll guide you as you select colours and styles, helping you choose options that will reflect your personality and stand the test of time.

  • PREPARING

    Preparation is, without question, every bit as important as execution. After establishing a time line which suits your specific circumstances we’ll undertake the preparation phase of your job, making sure we start your project in the right way so that we can finish it in the right way too – on time, within budget, and to the highest standard.

  • EXECUTING

    When it comes to painting and decorating the devil really is in the detail. There’s no point pouring time and energy into preparation if the finish isn’t immaculate, which is why we focus on getting even the smallest aspects of your project absolutely perfect. We’re take great pride in our craftsmanship and stand by every piece of work we produce.
