Local House Painter Wins New Zealand’s Top Master Painter Award

Auckland company Paint & Plasterboard Finishing (PBF) is celebrating success after picking up the top prize at New Zealand’s premier painting awards.


Out of 591 master painters in New Zealand, PBF was named as NZ Residential Masterpainter of the Year. It also won the Residential Rework of a Character Home category for its painting of a 1940s home in Arney Rd, Remuera.


Company owner Arjen Bloem says winning the two awards is hugely satisfying after claiming second place in the Residential Interior Under-$25,000 category last year.


“We got really excited about coming second and vowed to aim for a first place this year. To achieve that goal is a real thrill,” Arjen says.


“However, our objective remains the same — to continue improving our product and maintaining a high level of client satisfaction.”


Arjen says his team of 18 painters and five gib stoppers strives to produce the highest quality finish by using lots of training and good quality-control systems.


The company takes a long-term approach to its service and strives to deliver a first-rate product. Much of its business is repeat work or comes from the recommendations of happy clients.


“From project manager to apprentices, our whole team is committed to looking after our clients,” Arjen explains.


Apart from taking a few moments to celebrate their award, the team at PBF are back to business as usual.
