    "This is a great team of painters to have working on your property. I found them by looking on this site. It was evident to me during the job that they had customer satisfaction at the top of their \'to do\' list. After completing both interior and exterior painting on my property, they went on to do a great job at my elderly mothers place. Other reviews will tell you all the positives if you employ Finesse, I can only add that I feel so confident in recommending them that if you have any doubts, I would be happy for you to view the quality of their workmanship at my property with both interior, exterior and roof painting having been completed. Just contact Peter or Elman."

    "Peter & Elman painted our roof on our holiday house in Hanmer springs which is 1 and a half hours drive north of Christchurch.
    We were extremely pleased with the result.
    They went far and beyond our expectations, which included a primer coat, and 2 top coats.
    The roof is now better than new, and will look good for many years to come.
    We have no hesitation in recommending Finesse painting and wish them all the best in their business.

    "We are very happy with the completed job that Peter and Elman finished for us yesterday. They stripped, prepared, plastered and then painted our dining room, kitchen, back porch and hallway and did a fantastic job. We also appreciated the fact that they went the extra mile so to speak, in painting a few extra bits here and there that weren\'t in the final quote. We were really impressed how they cleaned up after themselves with a vacum cleaner each night before they went home.They were prompt, professional, friendly and very efficient the way they worked together, and with us. We will definitely be keeping their card for future jobs on our properties should they arise. If you happen to have a piano in your house, you might just be lucky enough to get Peter to play something for you. A bonus indeed. :-)"

    "We had some EQC painting carried out by Peter & Elman from Finesse. For starters, their quote was $3K less than another one we got, and the communication, quality of work, flexibility and integrity was a real breath of fresh air. They needed to do an extra layer of paint to cover stains on the ceiling, but they stayed true to the quote saving us the extra cost. After-sales service was excellent, and both Peter and Elman were very approachable, considerate and went over and above our expectations."

    "We had a few tidy up jobs following some ECQ repair work and Finesse Painting were able to do these in a very efficient and timely manner. Elman was flexible to our availability and was able to give us advice and tips for other upcoming projects that we have. We are very pleased with these guys and would highly recommend them to anyone else. "

    "It\'s very important to us that the people we get to work on our home understands what we would like done and also be able to give us good advice on things that we need help with. Mr Elman Crichton did exactly that. He was very approachable and was great to communicate with. He gave is very good advice on things we didn\'t really understand and that made our working relationship very easy.

    Mr Crichton has very good work ethics, arriving and finishing on time. He was also very organised and sensitive to fact that we had young children making sure that we still had space to do out bits and pieces.

    We love the work he\'s done on our house. We highly recommend him. He\'s fantastic!
