About Us

A & K Quality Decorators

A & K Quality Decorators Ltd is a Christchurch based residential and commercial interior and exterior painting company with emphasis on a high standard of quality workmanship. We are dedicated to meeting and managing client expectations by delivering excellent service and quality craftsmanship; we do everything from quick clean-up jobs to detail-orientated high-end projects, single rooms to whole buildings. We also offer rental repaints of offices and living spaces and we are licensed and insured for both liability and workers compensation. We operate closely with EQC and Fletchers on all of their sites and have an excellent quality control system in place.

We do excellent work because we know the value of good planning and we aim to keep within your specified budget. After more than thirty years’ experience in the business, we've learned that quality craftsmanship combined with good planning is the secret to success.

What do we mean by "Good Planning?"

Simple: Communication and co-ordination. We always listen carefully to your particular needs and desires, working with you right from the beginning to make sure we understand and can meet all agreed-upon specifications and expectations. Not all jobs require the same level of craftsmanship or planning.

Once we understand your needs, we will advise you on the best way to get the job done...and then we'll get to work putting a well-conceived and co-ordinated plan into action. We will communicate closely with you during all phases of the project, keeping you informed of job progress overall and on a day-to-day basis. Communication is a must for getting through a project quickly and efficiently.

We make every effort to stick to the plan, but the best laid plans can be affected by factors outside of our control (such as weather or waiting for other trades).

When planning and craftsmanship are on track, finishing a project is not a problem. We maintain a high-level of communication with every job until it's done. After completion, we undertake a walk-through with you to ensure you are completely satisfied. We want you to feel that we were the solution to your painting problem never the problem. We aim to make it a great experience for all.
