What our clients say when McKenzies paint their homes

they have never let us down
We are not painters but we are particular. Having used McKenzies painters several times, for both exterior and interior work they have never let us down and their staff have always been courteous, efficient and respected our property. I have never felt uncomfortable about leaving them alone in our home and have always returned to an exceptional standard of work. Even hanging intricate wallpaper was made to look simple and when we require more work to be done there is only one number we need. McKenzies.
Peter & Julie Walker
thank you for a great job
Just a note to say thank you for a great job, staining our fence. The result looks impressive and you looked after us each step of the way. Your man who did the work was very courteous and worked well. His skills with the spray unit ensured the good result. Kind regards

met all our expectations and more.
“Our home is very special to us... we like to keep it in great condition and after a process of receiving quotes we were pleased to contract McKenzies to paint both the exterior and roof. The professionalism in all the lead up, and then the delivery of the job and the invoicing process were all exactly as per the quotation. Delivery of the job met all our expectations and more. Painting staff were courteous, professional, efficient and at all times respectful of our property and our privacy. We have thanked the team at McKenzies and would recommend the services they provide without any hesitation”.

would call them again for sure
“Having recently moved house a decision was made to repaint. Being a weekend painter I started on the outside myself. While partway through the job I decided that I was overpainting and would obtain quotes for painting the interior. McKenzies quoted best and so I contracted them to complete the full interior repaint. Their 2 very friendly and efficient staff completed the job within a week, and to a very high standard. The doors were completed a little later, when time permitted in their factory. Overall the job was supervised regularly, and completed in a quick and efficient manner and I have since recommended McKenzies to other friends. I would call them again for sure”.

Their work has been exceptional.
We have asked McKenzies to restore by painting two or three pieces of furniture by painting as well as interior repair and repaint Their work has been exceptional. Not only was the finished product(s) without blemish where furniture was involved they went the extra distance by doing such things as replacing screws that were old or worn or strengthening support brackets that may have compromised the article later on as part of the service. They are very good at matching colours to existing paint work and willingly explain difference between different paint systems and what would be best for that particular job. Friendly and helpful they are an obliging company to deal with.

Mr & Mrs Goodman
really professional and friendly
We phoned Nathan at McKenzie Paint for a quote, which he came and completed within a couple of days, the quote followed within a day and was priced competitively so when we made the decision to go with McKenzie Paint it was based on the Pre-Sales experience which was really professional, friendly and full of great advice. Our house was being painted throughout the month before we were getting married, the expectation was set and realistic around time frames, but when the McKenzie Paint team executed this job, we were totally blown away by their speed and craftsmanship. This job had a 3 week deadline, it was completed in two, which meant our new carpet could be installed a week early, so any stress of doing this before a wedding was totally removed. We are very impressed and appreciative of the team at McKenzie Paint you have given us a brand new looking home to start our married life off together, I have already and will continue to be an advocate for a great locally owned business.

The quality and workmanship were excellent
We couldn't be happier with our relationship with McKenzies and with the fantastic job they did painting both the complete exterior and parts of the interior of our home as part of an extensive renovation. The quality and workmanship were excellent, as was working with their team at each step of the way. Great job all around -- you'll see us again for sure!
Rick & Melissa, Nelson
knowledgeable and very compatible
McKenzies were recommended to us by probably the foremost Building Inspection Company in Nelson to rectify and protect the plastering work on our 15 year old property. Their quote wasn’t the cheapest but the work schedule they laid out covered all the aspects that the Building Inspection Company said was necessary for our property. Scaffolding erection was quick and efficient – as was the de-construction. The team McKenzie's sent were knowledgeable and very compatible to work with and the Director visited 3 times during the work The work was inspected by the Nelson Building Inspection Company on completion and pronounced “ well performed and fit for purpose” I have no hesitation in recommending McKenzies for this type of plaster restoration work.
