A Flawless History

Kieran Fahy has been working in the painting and decorating trade since he left school at 17. With a lifelong love for the industry, Kieran eventually started his own business “Flawless Finishes”, in Ireland. This business was a successful and well-reputed painting and decorating business that ran for two and a half years until Kieran set out to travel the world, eventually settling in Australia, then later in New Zealand.

Kieran notes that while a lot of New Zealand painting and decorating businesses are strictly interior and exterior house painters, in Ireland the competition is much steeper and the success of a painting and decorating business hinges on being able to provide a wider range of services; including professional wallpapering and plastering. Mastering these techniques enabled Kieran to provide a competitively well-rounded service, and his experience gave him the knowledge to offer excellent advice in home improvements, including colour and style and making noticeable style changes on a budget.

At the close of the business in Ireland, Kieran and Helen moved to New Zealand and fell in love with the place, and here they still are, serving Christchurch and the wider Canterbury area with stunning painting and decorating services.

The Flawless Finishes business is owned by Kieran and Helen, and was launched in New Zealand by Kieran and Iain in 2014 for the purpose of providing expert painting and decorating services in Canterbury, and expressly to provide one-on-one consultations for a higher level of options, advice and quality assurance than what was currently available.

Iain hails from Scotland, where he worked for 13 years in the painting and decorating trade, becoming one of the most talented decorative plasterers we’ve ever seen. Previously Iain and Kieran had worked together for 2 years as Senior Foremen for a well-known New Zealand painting and decorating company, where the core of the work was EQC repairs. Sometimes they were the 2nd, 3rd or even 4th people on the job to correct work that had not been done up to standard the first time. This work, though sad to see, was satisfying in that they were relied upon to be the final fix – yet it was also impersonal, with no direct interaction with the client to provide a personal guarantee and reassurance after what must have been a series of very disappointing service providers.

With the opening of their own business, using the name from Kierans’ original business back in Ireland, Flawless Finishes gave Kieran and Iain the creative control they were looking for, including more of a focus on personally engaging with their customers to build a loyal base and expand their reputation. Now we, as the Flawless team, take pride in meeting with our customers to consult on a wider range of options, advice, quality assurance, special requirements and much more.

We have been using the services of Kieran Fahy and his team at Flawless Finishes Ltd since May 2017.

As we run a motel it is important to us that the redecoration of our units is done to a high standard and also that it is done as efficiently as possible so that we can have the units available to our guests.

Kieran and the team completed the work to a very good standard while minimizing the time units were unavailable to us.

We are pleased to be able to recommend Flawless Finishes Ltd for both the quality of workmanship and the efforts that they took to ensure minimal disruption to our business.

These guys were amazing! We had a tricky, triangle wall with triangle windows that we wanted as a feature wall using a mural. Not straight forward at all but these guys totally nailed it!! We are so thrilled with the results. Can’t recommend them enough

We recently had Kieran and the team complete a small internal painting job at our home. They arrived promptly, were helpful, considerate and provided some advice that saw us change some of our thinking or planning. At the end of it we had a professionally completed refresh of our Kitchen, Laundry and Bathroom including plastering, painting and wall paper hanging. The workmanship was of the highest caliber, his team honest and reliable and respectful of our home. Often people ask if I would use Flawless Finishes again – my response is I did. On the back of the initial engagement I had Kieran and the team return and paint the rest of the place to give it a consistent facelift that I would have been unable to achieve. Nor did I have the time.  The workmanship was to the same high standards as the previous work, committed time frames were met and also within budget. More than happy to recommend to anyone looking for a quality painter, plasterer and paper hanger.

Flawless Finishes have completed two separate interior painting jobs for us recently. I would recommend them to family and friends and would use them again. They were reasonably priced, great at communicating their expected starting dates and pleasant people to have in our home.

Richard and Joanna Fisher

We have used Flawless Finishes for two jobs and have been very satisfied with the outcome of both.  Kieran and the crew were very professional, careful and considerate.   They protected the surrounding areas with drop cloths and protective plastic carpet coverings. They completed both jobs within the time frames previously agreed upon.  Communication was also a positive area of their operation, with Kieran always replying promptly to our emails and keeping us abreast of developments.  We have no hesitation in recommending Flawless Finishes.

Great communication and turned up exactly when he said he would on both occasions. Very happy with the work done, and very clean and tidy. Will definitely use again.

The two painters, Kieren and Ian, were very polite. They did a great job in a very confined space. I am so pleased with the work done that I would not hesitate to get them back to do other painting for me or to recommend them to others. Thanks a million, guys you turned a dreary space into a pleasant space. Liz
