    "Kurt has completed painting the outside of my house as well as all the window frames, inside and outside.
    I cannot fault him on any of the work delivered and I have experienced the following:
    - very pleasant to work with and communicated all progress and issues clearly
    - perfectionist in preparation prior to paint
    - kept everything clean throughout the time he was at work.
    - very considerate and interacted well with the tenants
    - used quality products and the correct type of paint for every specific area

    I will use Kurt again without any hesitation.

    "Kurt has done a lovely job painting the outside of the house, making it look better than new. Everything is shiny and sparkling. Kurt has a great eye for detail and takes a lot of pride in the work he does. He was invaluable identifying some rotten boards on our house and, using his contacts, was able to secure a builder for us within days to do the remedial work. All his paintwork is faultless - I would highly recommend Kurt for any painting jobs."

    "Very pleased with the work Kurt has done for us. A very tidy worker with a real commitment to do the very best job. He involved an advisor from Resene to find the best solution for our ceiling paint jobs. Kept us informed of his schedule at all times."

    "Outstanding work done by Kurt on my 110 year old cottage. He is a real craftsman who takes great pride in his work. He explains what needs to be done and brings to your attention important issues like rotten boards. Kurt is trustworthy and personable and I can't recommend him highly enough."

    "We are very pleased we used Kurt to prepare and paint the exterior of our house. He kept us in the loop with all the progress as he made it and was extremely thorough which was reassuring.

    He was also very helpful at liaising with other tradies to ensure all the work got done easily.

    Kurt is friendly and flexible which is great when you've got a job that will take a number of weeks."

    "I cannot say enough about This company, we needed to completely redecorate and renovate our home inside and out. Kurt came out and took the time to look properly at what was required, he them supplied us with several options as to how to complete the work without major disruption to our family.
    The work was carried out timely and with great care to detail, his product knowledge and professional approach to everything left us at ease and completely confident we had chosen the right trades person.

    Our home is now refurbished from top to bottom inside and out,we get nothing but compliments form all who visit us.

    I would throughly recommend K.R.Jurgens Decorating for any job big or small.

    "Kurt recently completed painting our house. The workmanship overall was excellent. Thorough preparation means that the applied paint will last. Kurt always kept us in the loop and he communicated well. The thing that also impressed us was that when he found rotten timber or a failing flat roof he organised other trusted tradespeople, who also did a great job. Kurt's coordination of these extra jobs saved us a lot of hassle. Kurt's the man going the extra mile without charging an arm and a leg. Thank you for a great job, Kurt."

    "If you want a perfect paint job, Kurt is the one for you. He has just finished painting my place, including the roof, and I can thoroughly recommend him. He works with a builder who does any necessary repairs/maintenance. They are excellent tradesmen and it shows in the end result."

    "This is the second time I have had Kurt work on my place (not because work needed redoing, more me staging the work) and he was my first choice.
    Kurt is a perfectionist. He sees blemishes I didn't (until being pointed out) and always wants a perfect result.
    he is also generous with "extras", eg when he washed the house down he also waterblasted the path and deck, unasked. He also did extra painting where he saw a need, no extra cost, even though my bay window needed a lot more hours than he expected.

    Kurt might not be the cheapest quote you get but you will get much better value for money and a great paint job.

    "Kurt was generally good at his work but poor on admin. He also adds 'hidden' costs such as cleaning his brushes when he gets home and shaking his sheet out and folding it! He also charges a lot for travel ($50 for a 28km)
    Best get a clear picture of what Kurt intends to charge you for before he starts.

    "In a perfect world there would be lots of people like Kurt to help us maintain our houses for the long-term as well as keep/make them look really great - but in reality those people are quite rare. The most recent work that Kurt did for us was (as usual) a really good experience. He's helped us transform our master bedroom from a shabby neglected space into an elegant space (the oiled large original window is the star), as well as carefully tidying up the outside of our 60 year old house."

    "Kurt’s workmanship was outstanding. We didn’t get a painter, we got a craftsman. He didn’t redecorate, he restored. And he did it with courtesy, respect for us, respect for our 100 year old villa, and a high degree of professionalism. We rate Kurt very highly and will definitely utilise his services again in the future."

    "Kurt did a full restoration of the exterior of our 1911 villa which involved stripping back to the bare boards. We were very happy with Kurt, he was very friendly and easy to work with, he helped find the colours we wanted, kept us informed of the progress. He was very conscious of our young family and worked around them, and kept the workplace safe. His work was of a very high standard and our house looks great, thanks Kurt. I would highly recommend him"

    "I have a 1905 Villa in Wellington. This is the second time I have had it painted by K R Jurgens (the last time 12 years ago).
    Kurt is the only painter I would use. He is an expert on older homes, one of the last master craftsman. Kurt provided a detailed quote for our project and consulted with us at every stage. He kept us informed throughout the project and loving restored our Villa back to its former glory (just as he did 12 years ago).
    Kurt\'s emphasis/focus on preparation is uncompromising and this ensures a first class finish of premium quality. His choice to use Resene Paints for our Villa, allowed a wider selection of colour choices than some other brands I was considering at the time.

    I highly recommend Kurt Jurgens as a specialist painting contractor. (He s now working on another urgent project for me after Christmas).

    "Throughout the project to renovate the outside of our home Kurt was very keen to ensure we understood what progress was made and issues arising. His approach to quality of work and materials meant we ended up with a 1st class result.
    A few minor issues with dust etc, but no major concerns. Very trustworthy as well.
