Britta & Daniel

Britta & Daniel

Yes, we are German. Yes, we are a couple. And yes, we are both qualified Master Painters. This means we have not only completed our extensive painting and decorating apprenticeships, but we have also finished the stringent, 9-month, full-time Master Painter training. Without this premier trade qualification, it’s not possible to be a self-employed painter in Germany.
We came to Christchurch to help with the earthquake rebuild, and we’ve barely paused for breath since. Canterbury homeowners seem to love our work. Our oldest client is 99 years old!

Why do we keep getting referrals from our lovely clients?

  • Because your decorating project is completed by the two of us – you know exactly who is doing your painting and papering.
  • Because we help you decide on colour options with the latest colour-change software.
  • Because we take extra care to manage the all-important drying time between the various coats of paint.
  • Because we are members of Master Painters New Zealand, the century-old, national representative body for the painting industry.

Got a holiday home? We can combine house-sitting and decorating for you! From Wanaka to Kaikoura, Banks Peninsula to Berlin, we stay in your home-away-from-home as we freshen it inside and out. Easy.

Ready to get started? Call us today! We look forward to meeting you.
