“We have recently undertaken an internal renovation of our home. Having had cheap paint jobs in the past, in which the preparation work was not very well done, the paint began peeling off in a very short time. My wife Maggie recommended PBF. She had seen the quality of their work at a renovation she worked on not far from us.
We contacted PBF and Bryan Swainson the project manager gave us a quote. The quote was very reasonable and Bryan along with his foreman Daniel soon had a large team of very good painters in the house. This enabled them to get through the job very quickly. Daniel insisted on a good quality job from preparation to the final finish.
We found the whole team to be very courteous and respectful, which was particularly important as Maggie works from home and needed to be able to carry on her work.
Jason was particularly good in this respect and worked away quietly and efficiently.
We are absolutely delighted with the finished job and will get PBF back for any further paint jobs. I would recommend PBF without reservation”
Kerry and Maggie McGuire, Remuera
“To the team at PBF, Just a huge thanks to you all for a job well done at our Howick home.
Our main motivation for using PBF was your willingness to provide the services and time frame we needed.
I was in Tauranga, organizing our home in Auckland, which had to be completely stripped, plastered and painted all before our new baby arrived, a time frame of just over 2 weeks.
We have used all sorts of different tradesmen over the past few years on other houses and none topped your professionalism to work to a time frame, always tidy, pleasant guys on your team, keeping to the budget and most of all quality results.
The project was overseen by Bryan and his right hand man, who every time myself or my husband turned up would ask us to look around to see if everything was to our liking.
I have recommended your company to friends and family and would use you again for future jobs.”
Leanne Wilson, Howick
“We returned to New Zealand after 7 years away and needed a quick turnaround to prepare our home after the renters left. Quotes and advanced planning were precise and during the project we were fully supported by a project manager and the head office team. We had a great team work on the house interior and they were always polite and courteous. Often we had to make changes and this was always accommodated particularly when we had other contractors working. The minor detail was important and if we spotted any issues they were quickly dealt with by the team lead. All round a well planned & executed project that was on time and on budget. We are now looking to do the exterior with PBF in the spring.”
Paul & Anna, Mt Eden
“We hired PBF for our full exterior paint job and we were esctatic with the job they did on our place. They communicated with us frequently and always made sure we were happy with what was going on. Something that particularly impressed us was the care and attention they paid during the preparation process - something that our old house really needed work on! Thanks Brian, Arjen and the PBF team!”
Dan and Rachel, Mt Eden
We initially asked Bryan from PBF to come and quote the exterior of our house for repainting. Bryan met with us and explained in detail what to expect from PBF. He spoke to us about the guarantee then he measured the job. Bryan came back a week later and presented us with a very detailed written plan showing all of the options.
We chose to go with the 10 year guarantee option because it works out much more economical in the long term. The guarantee gives us great assurance and will certainly add value to the house.
After accepting the quote, the scaffold was installed. We then witnessed the extent of the preparation involved, including stripping the old paint and applying layers of timber preservers and primers before the painting was started. Mike from Resene also popped in several times to check on the work. This gave us a lot of confidence that work was done correctly.
We have since also had the interior of our house plastered and repainted by PBF. We chose PBF over a cheaper quote because we have seen that PBF tradesmen prepare their work carefully and take their time to do things the right way. We are very happy with our choice as the rooms they have painted look fantastic.
Since PBF did the work at our place we have referred several friends and neighbours to PBF. I do not make recommendations lightly and I am pleased to say that our friends have also been really impressed with the service provided by PBF.
We are very happy to tell you we are very satisfied with the work your company has done. The quality is excellent and we found that Daniel did his work efficiently and without affecting our own plans. We found Brian very efficient in checking progress. Will certainly keep you company in mind for any further work Thank you!

I’ve worked with about a dozen contractors over two house refurbishings. PBF was far and away the best. Arjen, PBF’s director, personally measured up our work, did some calculations and quoted a firm price on the spot. And right away asked for the order! Brisk and to the point. PBF’s price was on par with others. The professionalism and attention to detail paid by their gib-stopper was outstanding. Prompt resonse to phone and email communications. And everything on time. The gib-stopper told us on the second day he worked that he’d be finished three days later at 2:00 pm. He drove away at 1:15 pm! And he left behind a clean and tidy work area. Painters did a good job. Thorough and hard-working.
Keith, North Shore, Auckand
Arjen and his team were contracted to supply fix stop and paint plasterboard in our new home. Additionally they where contracted for the exterior painting.
We are extremely pleased with the attention to detail and the level achieved with the final product. PBF‚’s commitment to satisfaction has been exceptional, as too often companies over promise and under deliver.
I can say categorically, PBF (Arjen) have demonstrated a great commitment in achieving the highest standard. The extent of the guarantee from PBF is also distinguishing feature in the market place. This provides my family with great comfort. For the reasons of quality finish and commitment to satisfaction I have recommended PBF to family and friends.
Chris Connor Greenlane, Auckland
“Very professional and helpful, supplying documentation regarding how they would do the job and what to expect. They were tidy, minimised the disruption and mess and did a very high-quality job.”
PBF did fantastic work on our home it looks very nice. They are friendly turned up when they said they would and did a great job. They cleaned up each time and are good communicators. I thoroughly recommend them to anyone needing work done.
Dr Reddy, North Shore
“We used PBF to plaster a few rooms in our house which we had just renovated. The service was professional and outstanding as we had a very short time frame to get the job done. PBF went above and beyond to accommodate us by working late one evening and then again on a Saturday. Without their extra effort we would not have been able to keep to our tight time frame.”
Sabrina, Onehunga, Auckland
“The work was carried out beautifully throughout several areas in our home. The guys where really respectful of our home. As a woman I felt very safe having the guys in my house that is very important to me.
I would use Paint and Plasterboard Finishing again and recommend to them anyone because they are trustworthy and professional.”
Rochelle Clarkson, Homeowner, Pakuranga, Auckland
“From day one I was impressed by your attendance to detail and presentation to me. I was impressed by the price and the quality of the work compared to other contractors I‚Äôd seen in the district. Overall I am very satisfied with the product.”
Gary Hemmingson, Homeowner, Pakuranga, Auckland
“We have always received excellent professional service from PBF. My clients have had nothing but praise for PBF and their finished product.”
Russelll Clark, director of Certified Renovations
“I would have no hesitancy in recommending PBF for any plastering work. They came when they said they would, were pleasant to deal with, did a job that I was not prepared to tackle myself, and didn‚Äôt leave me with a mess. Arjen in particular has always been really helpful to deal with in terms of advice for the 3-4 jobs I‚Äôve had him involved in.”
Glen Sharkey, Home owner, North Shore
“In the past we often had uncertainty with tradesmen, often leaving a mess or delivering poor quality workmanship, which makes our job very unpleasant. We have done 108 projects together and I trust PBF to work in my clients’s homes. Staff are courteous and arrive on time. They also keep the work area clean and take away rubbish. Because workmanship is carried out to a very high standard, I do not have to worry about quality. We have always been very satisfied with the service provided by PBF Ltd.”
Niki Melton, Project Manager, Grayburn Property Services
“PBF are my preferred Gib stopping contractor. They have consistently played their part in helping me achieve deadlines. I run large scale commercial projects and I need to deal with a company who gets things done when I need them done. As an organization PBF manage projects and deliver results. I have no hesitation in recommending them.”
Thomas Feleti, Project Manager
“I felt very comfortable having the guys from PBF in our home. We left them to it once we could see that they treated our place with care. The team was very efficient and they did a great job of the Gib fixing and stopping.”
Lynne, home owner, Westpark Drive
“PBF have worked for me for several years and have given me fantastic service. Our work is often outside of hours and difficult. Arjen is always happy to work within a tight deadlines their internal quality assurance is second to none.”
John Dawson, Core Building Services Ltd
We received great service from PBF. We had a small job, filling three plate-sized holes in a ceiling. Linden did a perfect job, there is no sign of the original holes. He was cheerful and very tidy, and also happily advised us on a small DIY task. Arjen was good to deal with on the phone. We are happy to recommend PBF.
David, Takapuna, North Shore
“I would like to endorse the Plasterboard Finishing team for future work. I have been using them since 2007, when I met Arjen and the team. Arjen priced a very difficult job for me, which entailed doing some very out of the ordinary work. For example, the job involved working at a winery over the filtration plant; it was about four meters off the ground and directly under the roof. Consequently, it was about 42 degrees, there was about 35 large pipes protruding through the space that was to be Gibed in. PBF supplied the Gib & fixed, Gib stopping, and paint finish. The job was done on a Saturday and Sunday as the plant could only be stopped for that period. I as the builder and the winery were more than pleased with the outcome. They have recently carried out a work in some extensive renovations, which involved new work, old patch work, also painting. The outcome was very professional. I as the builder who contracted them and the homeowners were very happy with their work.
I have found Arjen and the team very pleasant to work with, and their pricing is very acceptable. I have no hesitation in recommending them for future work.”
