Why we enter the Master Painter of the Year competition

Posted by Wall Treats on October 9, 2019

The Master Painters of the Year Awards were presented at the Master Painters New Zealand conference in Australia in September. Every year Wall Treats Auckland Master Painters choose projects from the previous year to enter the awards.

This year, Wall Treats was one of only three Auckland painting companies to receive recognition from the industry – read on to view the homes we entered and find out which awards we won! 

The value of entering industry awards

At Wall Treats Auckland Master Painters, we paint some of Auckland’s most beautiful multi-million dollar homes. To ensure we continue to provide the excellent standard our customers expect we need to keep challenging ourselves.  And make sure we meet the highest standards of the industry. 

Each year new players enter the Master Painter of the Year competition, which provides a fantastic challenge to established entrants such as Wall Treats. The quality of workmanship keeps rising, so for Wall Treats to continue our path of excellence we need to keep improving our techniques.  There’s never time to rest on our laurels!

While the quality of the finished project is extremely important, so too is the professional relationship we have with our clients, and their experience of the painting process. We cannot enter projects into the Master Painter of the Year competition without our client’s consent – and no customer will endorse our entry if we fail to provide a positive experience.

What is the secret to our continued awards success?

Regardless of the size of the job, whether it is painting a new build, painting a renovation, interior painting or exterior painting, we have a procedure and a set of standards we adhere to.

  • Investing time and effort in understanding our customers’ needs - even before we have secured the job. This means our quotes fully describe how we will meet our customers’ requirements, so there is no confusion or surprises
  • Looking after our clients throughout the project. Once our clients have chosen Wall Treats as their painting contractor, our expert Project and Operations Manager cares for the project and the client from start to finish
  • Choosing the right technique for the best finish. At Wall Treats we use traditional brush and roller techniques, find out more about why we prefer brushing and rolling over spray painting here
  • Having the expert on the job. We make sure our Registered Master Painter (and owner) spends quality time on each site working alongside our team of employees. This means everyone on our team knows the standard that is expected, and that we have a good overview of every project
  • The value of experience. We have been painting multi-million dollar homes for over 17 years, and we continue to be the preferred house painter for these homes. We bring that experience and passion to every project

We are very happy with the quality of the paint result we have received from Wall Treats and also with the level of service we received. The team from Wall Treats produced an excellent paint finish and nothing was too much trouble.
Wall Treats’ work was of the highest quality, showing particular attention to detail in all areas. This small business represents both itself and the association very well by being meticulous in all areas from documentation to finished work. They have laid down a challenge for others to follow.
I had dealt with Wall Treats on a professional basis and was impressed with their level of finishing. I engaged Wall Treats for this project because I trusted that they would do a good job. My instincts were right. The Wall Treats team is a delight to deal with and I received efficient service from friendly professionals.
They are totally efficient and they are my number one … they would be my higher end, reliable painters … to refer on, absolutely, I’d think of them first! They’re going to be a little bit more expensive but I think you get what you pay for…
Many thanks for the work you've done on our house. You've done a very good quality job and we also appreciated your reliability, sticking to schedule and the fact you've been totally upfront about the costs.
We received excellent communication from the very moment we contacted Ashley for a quote to the final invoice being paid. Their processes were excellent and ensured that our job was managed in a professional way. We feel that Ashley and Daniel went out of their way to ensure everything went smoothly. Anyone who values ‘peace of mind’ the way we do should ring Wall Treats.
(Wall Treats) stand out by themselves… They’re the only ones who bother to communicate back about how things are going, how the quote’s going … all those sort of things. They’re the only ones who actually go that extra mile.
I was most impressed with the attention to detail and the communication throughout the whole process. The workmen were very considerate throughout the whole time they were at my property. What impressed me the most was that Ashley made sure every single detail was covered and checked in with me regularly. She also came and personally inspected all the work with me... Her standards are very high (as are mine!) and I highly recommend Wall Treats to anyone.
