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 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.

100% positive experience with this great team. I was unable to be present but there was no need to worry! Floor tiles done perfectly and in minimum time. Kitchen demolition achieved faster than I would have supposed possible, creative solutions for disposal, and John even went beyond the call of duty by undertaking an extra trip to help out a collector with transport problems.Paint job for my apartment was carried out with expertise, good taste and meticulous attention to every detail. I highly recommend Auck City Painters!

John and Adrian from Auckland City Painters painted the exterior of our home at Mangawhai Heads. We had used John and his team previously in Auckland, where they did an excellent job. They were equally good on our latest project. We recommend them unreservedly and would not hesitate to use them again.

We were very happy with the whole experience with Auckland City Painters. The job was completed to a very high standard. ACP staff were professional and easy to deal with. The House wash and Scaffolding subcontractors were also a pleasure to deal with. The communication from John and Jonathan was excellent. We were advised day to day what was happening so that we knew when we needed to be there....important when the work is very weather dependent. Thanks for a great job.

From start to finish my experience with Auckland City Painters was exceptionally satisfying. The general manger, Jonathan, was my primary contact, and he was a superb communicator. I found him personable, knowledgeable and delightfully attentive to my painting needs and concerns. The crew chief, Mike, was equally delightful: a consummate professional who was eager to ensure that the work was properly executed. The booking entailed painting the walls of my new apartment. My wife and I are thrilled with the quality of the work. I have had many experiences with tradespeople in my adult life; and, as one might expect, those interactions have ranged from awful to wholly satisfying. That said, my experience with Auckland City Painters ranks among the best . . . full stop. I wholeheartedly and without any qualification recommend this company for your painting needs.

It was a pleasure to work with John and his team on the interior repainting of our 110 year old Church Hall which had undergone earthquake strengthening and plaster and timber surfaces were dirty and sad. The end result is so good and their cooperation allowed us use of the hall while the job went on. ACP have my strongest recommendation.

I consulted with John over some colour decisions for my house paint and he was very helpful. He has a great eye for detail and was able to immediately point out what would work and what wouldn’t. He is professional and well presented. If you’re after a company that will give high quality results then this is it.

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.
