We have just had our house exterior painted by Graeme Herridge. Graeme did an amazing job for us; he was so thorough and diligent with his work- an absolute professional. Graeme was great to have around, thoughtful, respectful and tidied up every day when he was finished. Graeme painted the top level of our house, and was also so supportive in helping me in the process that I undertook of doing the bottom level. Quite frankly one of the best contractors we engaged through our major overall house renovations. Nothing was any trouble and we also felt comfortable and trusting when Graeme needed to enter the house. Also and importantly the cost for the painting project was very reasonable. I am happy to communicate directly if you would like me to validate this reference. From a very happy client. Graeme is based in Paraparaumu and works across the wider Kapiti region.
