Remuera House

Services Provided: Exterior house painting.

Award: 2018 HIGHLY COMMENDED - Residential Rework Exterior Contemporary Category

Architecturally designed and built in the 1980s, this house retains its relevance in today’s architectural landscape - a testament to the vision of both homeowner and architect.

The homeowner is meticulous with maintenance, and had specific requests regarding paint products.  A long-lasting paint finish that would protect her home’s substrates was key. Site visits were held with Dulux to specify the most appropriate paint products and ensure we followed due process. This means the homeowner receives the Dulux paint manufacturer’s warranty.

An aesthetically pleasing result was also vital to the homeowner. She invested in an exterior colour scheme devised by Peta Tearle Colour & Design Consultant, Peta is renowned in New Zealand for creating beautiful paint colour schemes.  The outcome is a timeless, classic palette that unassumingly distinguishes the house from its neighbours.

Due to the height of the house (close to three stories in some elevations), significant scaffolding was required to provide access. The cedar surfaces at the apex had been previously stained and it was the homeowner’s desire to re-stain them. However, due to the need to frequently re-stain, and scaffold each time, the homeowner decided to paint this area. The result is beautifully painted cedar surfaces.

“I wanted to find a painter who would complete the project to a high standard which would last for at least ten years.  It was also important to me that they were easy to deal with, and were reliable and honest.  I knew having the painting done would mean a lot of disruption and upheaval, and so wanted a good painting contractor.

I chose Wall Treats because they provided the quote promptly, and then followed up with me – I didn’t need to chase them.  The work had to be coordinated with scaffolders, roof maintenance contractors and a plasterer, so the offer to project manage the work, which would reduce the effort required by me, was important.

The final confirmation I was making the right choice was the endorsement of Wall Treats by my colour consultant.

I appreciated that I could trust the Wall Treats team to turn up when they said they would, to respect my property, to listen to my requests and concerns and manage them.

The painters were pleasant to have on the property and didn’t make big messes.  Daniel worked hard to ensure the finish was a high quality and Ashley came to inspections and took on board any areas of concern I had.  They made sure that everything was completed to my satisfaction.

I am really happy with the outcome and would definitely recommend Wall Treats to anyone.  The team made something that could have been stressful into an overall pleasurable experience.”
