Judges comments - 2018 Master Painter of the Year

I must say I've been very impressed with your professionalism as a company. Fantastic communication, friendliness and workmanship. A credit! It's really nice to see a company doing all aspects of the job so well, and trust me, I deal with many many companies so know this to be a fact. Your Team were brilliant! Greg is an asset to you.

Following up on our phone call last week, I wanted to let you know how impressed we were with the team that came up and painted Milne Road. The communication was excellent and both times I went to see the progress I was given a full tour and explanation as to what was happening. Good service is something I always take note of because you don’t always get it these days and it is so important! The quality of work was also great so you should very proud of your team and the way they conducted themselves. I look forward to working with the company again in the near future.

I’m just dropping you a quick note to express my appreciation for the work that you have recently carried out on our heritage building. I can’t believe how the paint and the new colour scheme has freshened up and transformed the old Post Office. We now have a building that we are proud to own and manage thanks to the quality of your workmanship.

We really do appreciate the time that you spent with us sorting colours and managing the contract including the work of the plastering, scaffolding and building contractors. The job flowed so well and was completed with a minimum of disruption to our tenants. Again, thanks for your assistance, I would have no hesitation in recommending your firm for any future work.

We recently moved into our new build - a large architecturally designed home, in which the paint and wallpapering work was completed by Grant Jenkins Contracting (GJG). As well as being a complex and exacting build, there was also the added problems of extreme environmental conditions and working away from home in a rural area, that had to be addressed.

The house has a high ceiling stud, with some pitched roof lines, high rims skirtings, hardwood vanities, cedar doors and two large walls with designer wall paper. In fact, everything needed specialist painting, staining and papering. GJC work was meticulous, efficient and professional. It was a highly skilled team with excellent work ethics. Their expertise was recognised by judges in winning the NZ Painters award for their work on our home.

We can’t speak highly enough of GJC and would highly recommend them to any future clients.
