Eddie Reid is a well known local tradie who started his painting business nine years ago.
What is happening with your business and why the name change?
In 2012, Reid Painters started as a painting company servicing predominantly the inner city suburbs. Our main scope of work is interior, exterior residential, commercial and schools. We have been very fortunate over the years to have worked with a wonderful group of clients who continue to use our services to this day.
Over the years, common requests from our clients have been whether we can recommend a plasterer, electrician, builder, plumber and roofer, and also whether we can manage their entire project for them, so we have recruited our own plasterer, builder, electrician, roofer and plumber. Providing a variety of tradespeople allows us to schedule each trade into the job from start to finish and provide
a more efficient service with minimal delays.
Tell us about some of your jobs?
At the moment we are working on;
• 22 townhouses in Grey Lynn and Te Atatu - installing new kitchens, changing standard lighting to LEDs, painting/plastering, and building an additional bedroom in the garages;
A two-storey villa in Grey Lynn - repainting and some weatherboard replacement;
A three-bedroom house in Manurewa – repainting the roof and exterior, some weatherboard replacement, and deck replacement from pine to Vitex decking;
• An apartment block in Remuera - building a new fence;
• A complete bathroom make-over including floor replacement, waterproofing, gib installation, plastering and painting.
Our main work is residential and rental property maintenance. Commercial work is consistently increasing with projects coming up in the next two to three months. We are finding we are getting calls for more lighting upgrades from the standard light bulbs to LEDs.
How far will you travel for work?
We travel Auckland-wide. However, we have clients in Taupo, Tauranga, Papamoa and Waiheke, so we do go further afield.
Anything else you’d like to tell us?
To bring the team together under one group we are changing our brand from Reid Painters to Reid Property Services. We have also gone live with our new website. This will show who we are and what we do. Please take a look.
