For all your residential painting needs our team of professionals will provide you with a first class finish to give you that ‘wow’ factor every time! 😁

Founder/owner Mike Smith knows painting better than anything. He first picked up a paint brush at the age of fifteen and hasn’t put it down since. With experience that spans across the globe including; Canada, USA, UK and Australia he’s got no shortage of experience. Starting his own company in 2012 on the sunny East Coast town of Gisborne was a no brainer. Since then, the business has grown from humble beginnings to a strong team of fifteen professional painters alongside two office staff.

Operations Manager Bruce Cudd has a whopping 35 years experience in the Painting Trade.  Bruce brings a timeless amount of experience and knowledge to the team that is priceless, especially on the big commercial jobs like Schools and Apartment Blocks.

Combined, Mike and his team have over 231 years of professional painting experience which is strong reassurance to clients that they will be well taken care of.  👍

Mike is also the president of the Gisborne Master Painters association.
