Finesse Painting and Decorating Ltd. is an established and respected plastering, painting and decorating organisation operating extensively throughout New Zealand since 2012. We are a member of Master Painters New Zealand and Master Plasterers New Zealand, with Managing Director Peter Dalman currently chair of the Canterbury/Marlborough executive board. We are also a member of the Resene EcoDecorator programme, invited in 2016 by Resene in recognition of our consistent quality, fleet-footed response times and sustainable practices. 

We pride ourselves on dependable value delivery, striving to be as reactive and efficient as possible in the fast-paced NZ construction industry whilst delivering a quality product. With a focus on treating our clients with respect and integrity, coupled clear communication at all times, Finesse has become the painting and plastering company of choice for many homeowners, investors, property managers, project managers, builders, and quantity surveyors. We are transparent and competitive in our pricing, breaking all tenders and quotes down and basing them on the current market rates required to complete the job to a high standard. Our team members are supported by a communicative and efficient management team who are ready to assist you getting your next project underway.


Our company uses premium grade paints from Resene, Dulux and Wattyl and we are proud of our strong reputation and large group of diverse loyal customers. Our current operational areas include Christchurch, Wellington, Blenheim/Marlborough, Queenstown/Southern Lakes and the West Coast of the South Island.




We believe clear and effective communication is vital for any successful project. This includes everything from working with quantity surveyors during the tender stage, to regularly updating project and site managers on our job progress.


We also work in well with other trades up or down stream from us to help the whole process run a smoothly as possible.

Quality prep work and materials

We complete the required prep work thoroughly, only use top shelf painting products and stick to any specifications we receive.


We keep the jobsite tidy. This includes a daily site clean, and keeping all out materials out of the way in designated areas.

Health and Safety

We believe we are industry leaders in health and safety. We have a culture across the company of doing all we can to look out for each other on sites. We have clear processes in place to identify potential risks, deal and follow up with any site incidents, and continually train all our team across the country.


Our last year’s audit by the Resene EcoDecorator Programme inspector came back as 100% for our Health and Safety.
