PASSION FOR PAINTING

Winner of Master Painters New Zealand Residential Rework Exterior Contemporary 2016 Award and Highly Commended in Residential New Exterior Over $25k.

The jobs we work on represent more than just projects to our clients. They’re their homes, their work places and their investments – unique spaces with history and personality. They deserve to be treated with respect; to be finished to the highest standards, with care and thought poured into every element. From the biggest features to the smallest details we do just that, providing premium painting, decorating, plastering and earthquake repair for homes and businesses throughout Canterbury.

  • DO IT ONCE, DO IT RIGHT

    On any project there are a number of things our clients demand, including value for money, attention to detail, and speed. We consistently manage to achieve all three by blending years of hands-on industry experience with a systematic approach. Our skilled team work efficiently to save both time and money, while the exacting standards we set for ourselves ensure a quality finish, every time.

  • PLANNING

    Before we can ‘blow your mind’, we need to know exactly what you ‘have in mind’! We’ll sit down with you, learn about your vision, and offer insights into how you can achieve the very best results. We’ll guide you as you select colours and styles, helping you choose options that will reflect your personality and stand the test of time.

  • PREPARING

    Preparation is, without question, every bit as important as execution. After establishing a time line which suits your specific circumstances we’ll undertake the preparation phase of your job, making sure we start your project in the right way so that we can finish it in the right way too – on time, within budget, and to the highest standard.

  • EXECUTING

    When it comes to painting and decorating the devil really is in the detail. There’s no point pouring time and energy into preparation if the finish isn’t immaculate, which is why we focus on getting even the smallest aspects of your project absolutely perfect. We’re take great pride in our craftsmanship and stand by every piece of work we produce.

    Chris Barrington, Shirley
  • Grant, Richard and the team at Chamlang did an excellent job of stripping back old wallpaper and paint, re-surfacing and then re-painting. They worked in seamlessly with the other contractors doing our EQ repairs, gave us an accurate and reasonable quote, and completed the job within the time-frames indicated. They responded very quickly to all correspondence, and were always pleasant to deal with. We will be using them again for other re-decorating work in the future. Thanks, Chamlang!

  • Chamlang Limited were judged on five outstanding properties this year and were extremely proud to be among the 25 finalists for the 2016 "New Zealand Master Painter of the Year Awards". We were the the only company in Canterbury to have achieved this honour.

    At the award ceremony, Chamlang were the winners of the Master Painters New Zealand Residential Rework Exterior Contemporary award and we received a Highly Commended in the Residential New Exterior Over $25k category.

    We would like to pass on recognition to our team for their continued high quality of work, as regardless of the result, what was presented was a credit to them and our business, as well as befitting the quality the Association prescribes to.

    Master Painters NZ have told us that the overall quality of work was extremely high. The task of separating the finalists and winners was a challenging one for the judges.
