Painting, Decorating & Carpentry Testimonials
Cathy and Ian, Birchgrove February 2017
We chose AsNu because we needed some essential carpentry repairs done as well as painting of the outside of our historic timber house. AsNu were able to do it all, which made it a lot more convenient for us. The team was very easy to deal with and were considerate about being around the house. We got help from the colour consultant with choosing the colours and they look fantastic. There was also helpful advice about the choices we had for doing the carpentry repairs, including how to do it most economically. The final paint job looks really nice quality and well finished. We’re really pleased with the outcome as well as how the AsNu staff handled the job. We’re very happy to recommend them, for both simple jobs as well as complex jobs that go beyond painting.

House renovation can be your worst nightmare. Fortunately, that was not my experience with ASNU. Two smart young men, Mark and Jordon painted my house inside and out. They were punctual, efficient and made every effort on my behalf to ensure that I was happy with the result. I can totally recommend ASNU.

Michele Anderson, Baulkham Hills
I would like to let you know that I am absolutely delighted with the painting that Tomm & Mo have completed at my home; 10/10 for the overall job. Their attitude & dedication to providing a superior product has been borne out in the workmanship & end result of the paintwork The colours selected by Rachel were spot-on, except for the Pony Tail that we decided was too dark & so used ½ strength.The end result has made an enormous improvement on my home & as such is giving me great joy that I know will continue for a long time.

Can I commend you on the quality of your workers. They have been professional, careful and kind when working at my elderly father’s residence.

Annie Lewis-Bramall, Greenwich:
In January 2011 my husband & I made a decision to have our home re-painted inside and out and thus embarked upon the somewhat daunting task of finding qualified and trustworthy tradespeople. The project involved more than just painting the interior and exterior of our two story home, garage and loft flat above the garage, because, in addition to good painters, we needed an electrician to update lighting, including the installation of many down lights in our living room and on our back balcony, a carpenter to do a number of tasks including replacing a door-frame and worst of all, we needed to remove all the carpets and find someone to sand & estapol the floors in the living room, dining room, kitchen & family room and the stairs! In addition, our home is filled with antique furniture, which all needed to be carefully moved.
A chance search on the internet to find a Dulux distributor led us think about having a Dulux colour consultant and we were so glad we did. Jo Nicholls was well worth the fee we paid, almost half of which was reimbursed against the cost of the Dulux paint we purchased. Jo’s visit & her excellent negotiating skills, as she listened carefully to both my husband & to me, resulted in a carefully written plan for each room setting down each area, colour & product along with codes that made everything so very easy. We were & continue to be delighted with the colours, some very different to those we may have selected on our own and we love the result!
Jo made many helpful recommendations for painters and we approached half a dozen companies for quotes. In the end it was again by chance that we came across Geoff Gillies from As-Nu Group of Trades, who just happened to be quoting in the area.
The approach adopted by Geoff and his company As-Nu Group of Trades made a great deal of sense to my husband and to me. As-Nu offers to project manage & provide all of the trades people needed to complete the renovation in such a professional, logical & caring manner. From the moment we met with Geoff, we were confident that he knew a thing or two about the work involved. My husband’s insightful questions about method and my concerns about managing the day to day challenges were met with honesty and excellent practical solutions, as well as a comprehensive and detailed written plan for how the project would be managed.
Geoff stuck to all of his promises and to his plan. I could not believe how good his teams of tradesmen were. Omar from South America, Flavio from Brussels & Jimmy from Ireland were without doubt the most outstanding professional & gifted painters, who cared for us and for our possessions and who made us laugh when they told us they were ‘painting each room with love from their heart’ but it honestly felt like they were doing just that! The other trades people were equally wonderful. Their work continues to be much admired by family, friends & acquaintances, who cannot believe how quickly, efficiently and how professionally the complex project took place. The work was finished to our entire satisfaction and we are delighted we were lucky enough to come across As-Nu Group of Trades.
Already our neighbours across the road have used As-Nu to their entire satisfaction also on a challenging project, as has my husband’s solicitor & friend in the southern suburbs.
I cannot speak highly enough of As-Nu and I am pleased indeed to provide this reference.
