“A friend recommended Paul to us to paint the exterior of our house (render and wood) and to tidy up some wooden window sills. Paul completed the work to a high standard making everything look clean and refreshed. We also asked him to paint some of the inside rooms which he also completed to a high standard. His pricing was fair and reasonable.

Paul was able to give us good advice about colours and types of paint to use, as well as providing his own scaffolding to reach the hard to reach corners of our house.

Paul is friendly and hardworking. He managed to work around our busy household and inquisitive children without causing any hassle. We would happily use Paul’s skills again.”

“We have a steep, narrow staircase with a 4m-plus drop, and wanted it covered with an expensive self-striped foil paper. Paul was able to paint the ceiling, prep the walls and complete the tricky job to perfection in short order and at a fair price. We have no hesitation in recommending him for the accuracy of his work, professionalism and friendly approach.”

Kevin. Browns Bay


“As Chief Technical Officer, Technician Engineer in Chemical Engineering at Auckland University for 30 years, I think that I am reasonably experienced in recognizing Superior Quality and Craftmanship when I see it in Tradesmen carrying out repairs, construction, maintenance, preparation and finishing of a contract.

Paul has on two occasions carried out redecoration of our home in Castor Bay, both inside and out.

Paul is a most meticulous craftsman, producing superior finishes in Painting, Paperhanging, oiling and surface preparation and repairs.

We have found him to be a Very Nice Person.

His quote has been acceptable.

He is practical, completes the task on time with no cost overruns.

We always try to obtain Paul’s services first before contacting anyone else. He is highly sought after and a lead time to start the job may be required.

Tom Gray, Milford”


“On Task, On Time, On Target.”

His standards are of the highest quality.  We would certainly use his services again.”

Chris, Dairy Flat


“We are very pleased with our exterior paint work.

Paul supplied us with a very accurate and detailed quotation.

Well worth the wait.”

“We have used Precision in our home several times in the past two years and are very satisfied with the level of workmanship and service provided by Paul Lacey. 

When his company hung our expensive imported wallpaper, the finished result was just amazing.  A true professional!  Especially impressive when several other wall paper hangers declined the job due to the tricky nature of the (pure paper) wall paper.

The internal rooms Paul and team have painted have been extraordinarily well prepared and the finished job excellent.  Paul’s company has also painted the entire exterior of our home and we are very happy with the work done….We are still receiving compliments from passing strangers!

Paul and his company have proven themselves to be efficient, trustworthy, helpful, knowledgeable and fantastic at what they do.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Precision to anyone.  They may not be the cheapest in town, but I believe you get the service that you pay for and Paul’s company is well worth the investment!”

Christine Lockie, Narrow Neck


“Paul Lacey of Precision Paperhanging and Painting painted our family home over the course of five weeks at the end of 2013.  Throughout his time with us, I found him to be reliable, thorough and highly professional, as well having a good sense of humour when it came to the vagaries of family life!  We are very happy with the result, and hope to offer Paul more work in the future.”

Vivienne Drinkwater, Dairy Flat


“November 2012 I was looking for someone to finally finish my un-papered home. The pressure was on from the “boss” and lives were on the line! (Mine anyway!) After looking through the ‘No Cowboys’ website I came across the “10 out of 10 on Target” rating for Precision.  There website did the rest.

Paul Lacey was around within the next 48 hours. He spent a short time measuring and made expert recommendations regarding where to paper and where to paint. He also, thankfully, reviewed my colour choices and changes were made. From the very start I made him aware of my budget and my overall plan for the place. Paul was clear that I was not obliged to go with his quote even after the assessment.

The house was built in the late 70s with relatively high ceilings and walls plus a stairwell. Originally the plan was to paint however Precisions estimate and assessment of the scope of the job found that more of the budget would go into the prep for painting (plastering etc) than the paint itself, blowing the budget on prepping the house didn’t make sense. Wallpaper was the choice. One week of preparation with the very minimum of disruption to a very busy household (a second bathroom and large deck area were also being built) and another week of papering four bedrooms, a dining area, living area, entranceway and stairwell and the house was transformed. The whole project completed on the Friday before Christmas.

Paul explained every facet of the progressing job. At no time were we left out of the loop. Each day ended with the site being cleaned and squared away ready for the next. His team’s interaction with my family put everyone at ease and their professionalism was evident throughout the job. The house was truly transformed. I have attached a couple of photographs that really don’t do it justice. I have limited photographic ability.

I wholeheartedly recommend Precision Paper Hanging and Painting to anyone looking for that level of workmanship that not only enhances your home but also is a daily reminder of having an honest, skilled and genuinely professional team work on your home.”

Thanks for the great job Paul and Kenny. We couldn’t be happier!

“Couldn’t ask for a better job done, excellent communication, work rate and a reasonable price. I will definitely use these guys again and have recommended them to others.”

Rick, Greenhithe


“We were impressed with Paul’s professional approach and the attention given to our requirements. The work was carried out very promptly and efficiently with a minimum of fuss. The finished result looks fantastic and we have no hesitation in recommending this company to others.”

Kaye, Hobsonville


“The quote to paint my gable ends was about twice the amount of another one that was scribbled on a business card, but it was professional and gave me confidence. (It was also just over half the amount of another quote which I thought was exorbitant.) Turns out I made the right decision – a perfect result. Next time my house needs painting I’ll be calling Paul first.”

Debbie, Torbay


“We have known and dealt with Paul Lacey from Precision Paperhanging & Painting since 1998. Paul has done a lot of paperhanging and painting jobs for us and we have always been very happy with the results.

Paul is very professional and precise with his work and he communicates very well with us as the client. His timekeeping is also great.

We would not hesitate to recommend Paul for any wallpapering or painting jobs.”

Gaye, Browns Bay


“As we did not live at the premises being painted and had to arrange all the work remotely I was really impressed with Paul keeping us up to date with the work once started and prior to starting the work – working with us to ensure we were picking the colours that were going to work for the house – we were very happy with the colour pick and the quality of the work and would not hesitate to work with him in the future or recommend him to others.”
