A Really Professional Experience – Exterior Painting
A really professional experience with a really professional finish. I wish we’d known about you guys before now but now you can be sure all our painting work will go through you now.

GIB® Stoppers
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. We are happy to recommend PBF.

GIB® Stopping
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.

GIB® stopping and Interior House Painting
“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.”

“I would like to endorse the Plasterboard Finishing team for future work. I have been using them since 2007. 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 the team very pleasant to work with, and their pricing is very acceptable. I have no hesitation in recommending them for future work.”

Gary Stewart, Building Contractor

GIB® Stopping and Interior Painting
I’ve worked with about a dozen contractors over two house refurbishings. PBF was far and away the best.  PBF’s price was on par with others. The professionalism and attention to detail paid by their GIB®-stopper was outstanding. Prompt response 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.

Thoughtful and Never Disrupted – Exterior Painting
I have been completely satisfied with PBF in all aspects and would highly recommend this company. PBF delivered everything the promised. The painters were thoughtful and never disrupted the day to day running of the home. Our project manager oversaw everything to perfection.

GIB® Stopping and House Painting
“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 Ive seen in the district. Overall I am very satisfied with the product.”

Helpful and Cooperative – Exterior Painting
I would recommend PBF to do a paint job again. At all times we found everyone very helpful and cooperative. Both Kevin and James were very easy to have on the premises. Always polite and pleasant. Any small errors quickly remedied without fuss. The overseeing was always thorough as well.

GIB® Stopping
“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.”

GIB® Stopping
“PBF are my preferred GIB® stoppers. 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 organisation PBF manage projects and deliver results. I have no hesitation in recommending them.”

GIB® stopping (Urgent) job 20 December 2013
Fantastic, punctual, efficient, respectful of our property. Skilled. What more can I say. We had such a horrible experience previously with a GIB®stopper that we expected the worst and what we got was the absolute best. Thanks for being our xmas miracle.

“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.”

“It was a pleasure having PBF working in my house. We were always kept up to date with the job, had a project manager coming to review the work and when they left in the evening, the house was left as clean as it was found.
I would highly recommend their work and will not hesitate to use them again.

GIB® Stopping July 2014
We are extremely pleased with our dealings with PBF.  Their communication was prompt and excellent.  Arrived on site when they said they would and Ruel is a ‘gem’, polite, left the site clean and tidy and did a fabulous job.  We are glad we chose this company to patch up our very damaged kitchen walls and would have Ruel back again if we need anything done in the future.

Communication – Exterior Painting
PBF Promised and delivered! We are very happy with the final job. Communication throughout the job was very good and the actual painting was finished to a high standard. We appreciated their advice and the introductions to other trades required to complete the work.

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.  Will certainly keep you company in mind for any further work. Thank you!

GIB® Fixing GIB® Stopping Interior and Exterior Painting
PBF 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

GIB® Stopping and Interior House Painting
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, organising 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.  I have recommended your company to friends and family and would use you again for future jobs.

GIB® fixer, GIB® stopper, and Painters did Stairwell and entrance hallway

We engaged the services of PBF for our entrance way & stairwell. They were quick to respond to our initial enquiry with onsite visit followed by an extensive itemised quote.


The whole team have performed their duties admirably. Their work is of the highest standard and the end result is flawless. They were punctual, professional and always left our property in a tidy condition.

We will definitely utilise their services again and strongly encourage anyone wanting a quality finish to their walls & ceiling to do the same.
Thank you to the GIB® stoppers and painter teams at PBF!

Painting and GIB®stopping
I have used PBF for GIB® stopping and painting for several years. I have only had good experiences.  Quotes are competitive and quick to come back, and the workmanship is excellent.  They arrive on time and make a huge effort to accommodate when schedules change at short notice.  I use PBF because I know the job will exceed client expectations.

“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’t leave me with a mess.”

Glen Sharkey, Home owner, North Shore

No Hesitation – Exterior Painting
We have no hesitation in promoting PBF should the occasion arise for someone needing either interior or exterior work done – painting or plastering. Kevin and Brian both very clean and neat workmen. Keeping us up to date with what was happening each day and quietly and efficiently going about their work. Nothing was too much trouble.

Allan & Ronda, Homeowner Remuera

Efficiently Organised Throughout – Exterior Painting
Painting was efficiently organised throughout with all work occurring within the time lines given. From the first visit for the inspection and quotation all the activities proceeded as indicated with continuing follow up and support. The painters engaged on the work were professional, hard-working, courteous, organised and tidy, with the work site being managed in a clean state and secured at days end. All in all, a good experience.
