May 2012 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.”

GIB® Fixing and GIB® Stopping and House Painting
“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.”

GIB® Stopping and Interior Painting
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 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.

GIB® Stopping and Interior Painting
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.

Paul, Coatsville

The team on site were very responsive, attentive & proactive dealing with all stages to completion.
The team were always considerate on site & took care of our property always communicating & taking responsibility for delivering a high standard of workmanship. The Project Manager kept us well informed by text & phone. A good team and a pleasure to have involved.

Painting and GIB®stopping November 2014
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.

GIB® Stopping Interior and Exterior Painting
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!

GIB® Fixing GIB® Stopping Interior and Exterior Painting
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.

May 2012 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. 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

GIB® fixer, GIB® stopper, and Painters did Stairwell and entrance hallway May 2014
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!

September 2012 Interior and Exterior House Painting
Arjen and his team at PBF have been engaged by us several times at our own home and also rental properties. It is without doubt that their onsite preparedness, their service and follow up, from my experience, is unequalled in the industry.


The co-ordination of work from the time they provide quotations to their attention to detail on site and the final inspection of the work that has been done has always been outstanding. They are a company who do what they say. Their work is high quality and they are always considerate to the working environment. I would give my personal recommendation if you are considering using PBF as a company.

February 2012 Exterior House Painting
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.


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.

April 2012 Interior and Exterior House Painting
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.


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

May 2012 Exterior House Painting
We hired PBF for our full exterior paint job and we were ecstatic 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

House painting January 2014
Thank you PBF, our house looks so good. Why didn’t we find you years ago! The painters on the team helpful and polite and ready to sort out any issues as they arose. Everyone paid great attention to detail in the preparation and painting. Having a 10 year guarantee is very reassuring that PBF will be monitoring the paintwork and if necessary repairing.

Christine Brown, Homeowner Epsom

June 2013 Exterior House Painting
PBF Carried out the painting of our two storey home earlier this year. This was a large job carried out during a very wet autumn and early winter.


We are very happy with the standard of work carried out by PBF, its communication with us and its preparedness to make up for time lost to bad weather to ensure that the project would be completed on time. We would thoroughly recommend PBF to any future customer.

I cannot recommend them too highly.
