Frequently asked questions

Do you supply the paint?

Yes! Our trade accounts enable huge savings over the normal retail cost of paint and you won’t have to do any running around when we need more.

Do I need to organise scaffolding?
We have our own mobile scaffolding as well as professional scaffold contractors to install fixed scaffolding for the larger or tricky areas. Sorted!
Can you help with colour?
Yes! To thank you for choosing to work with us we will arrange a professional colour consultant to come to your home and help you make the right choice! (*offer applies when using Resene paints only)
What paints do you use?
In general we use and recommend Resene paints. We also have trade accounts with both Dulux and Porters paints and should you have a specific request or specification we are happy to accommodate. What we won’t use is low quality or inferior paint and products which compromise the quality and longevity of our work.
How soon can you start?
Generally speaking we usually have about a 2-3 week lead time for full exterior or interior house paints. When you receive your quote we will also give an indication of when we can start. There are always exceptions though so if you have a pressing deadline we can often make something work especially if it’s during winter months which is our quieter period.
Do you do both interior and exterior painting?
Yes! We have over 65 years combined experience in both interior and exterior painting.
Do you do the odd small job?
Full exterior and interior house painting is our specialty and where we can offer the very best service to our clients. For the odd small painting job a sole tradesman in your area would better serve your needs.

Auckland City Painters Ltd are very professional, neat and tidy painters. The team of painters led by Steve did an excellent job, making sure there were no paint spots where there shouldn’t be. I would recommend these painters.

Very impressed with Auckland City Painter. Harry & Steve were the onsite painters and were extremely tidy, efficient and pleasant. John was great to deal with and communicated well. As well as a full interior paint they were charged with having my old wooden shutters repainted. They came back like brand new. All round great job and would have no hesitation in recommending.

Auckland City Painters recently painted the interior of our three bed-room, two story house in Mt Eden. From beginning to end of the project, I was completely satisfied with the procedure. After my initial contact, John gave a prompt and competitive quote. The two painters, Andrew and Helen, were great workers, discreet yet efficient, and giving attention even to fine detail. There was no mess and no stress. The work was undertaken with great professionalism and is well-deserving of 5 stars.

Auckland City Painters were responsible for the painting of a new house for us. Being a new dream home we had high standards and our expectations were well and truly met. We found the team to be very helpful, thorough and professional. Highly recommended.

I employed Auckland City Painters to do some internal painting of all my skirting boards and doors in my Bungalow in Westmere. From the start I found the Company to be very professional, from John replying to my call quickly and coming to do a quote, through to the final phone call after the team had left to make sure I was happy. The team always arrived on time, and cleaned up each day before they left. The job was completed to a very high standard with a minimum of fuss. I was given good advice on colour matching, and nothing extra I requested was a problem. I can highly recommend John and his team, and will not hesitate to get them back if I need more internal or external painting done. Thanks 🙂
