Customer Feedback

What our customers
have to say.

I have used Doug and the team from Complete Coatings Group on two of my medium density housing projects (2021-2022) to Supply Gib, Fix, Stop, Paint Interior and Exterior. I would highly recommend contacting Doug from Complete Coatings Group as Doug and his team are always a pleasure to deal with and have a can-do attitude on my projects.

A big thank you to Doug and the team at Complete Coatings Group with the transformation of our new facility and helping create our new cutting-edge home of R80 Rugby.  I would highly recommend Doug and his professional team from Complete Coatings Group. Doug found a builder at very short notice and was a huge support on getting this project across the line on time and with my budget



Just want to say thank you (and the crew) for the amazing work you have done! 

The house looks amazing (even the neighbours have commented!) and is such great quality (one of the senior rangers who supervisors the guys who look after our DOC huts etc couldn’t fault it). 

What and improvement you have made to my home   


Thank you to the team at Complete Coatings Group (Doug) for doing the Riccarton Totara club’s kitchen free, as well as our book shelves outside of their quote. 

The feedback we had from the staff and club members was so lovely. Your staff (Jason, Brit, and Michael) were friendly, enjoyed a joke about what activities they could participate in, engaged with the members (who are all older and in varying states of physical capabilities) and the atmosphere was lightened by having them there. Not only does the dining room look brighter and lighter but it has lifted the staff’s mood – amazing what can be done by a lick of paint!
