Praise for Leigh from Spencer Henshaw

We received some amazing feedback about Leigh from Spencer Henshaw (SH) after he completed painting and roof repairs at a complex north of Auckland. It was such a positive compliment that we decided to include the tenant’s exact words.

"I would like to congratulate your company for the well-organised process of painting and roof repairs on the houses in my block at 18-32 Crampton Court, Orewa, during the past two weeks. From the outset Leigh was awesome, taking into account my needs as a disabled person, even cleaning my lounge windows from roof splatter.

In particular the painting team was amazing. The entire team was co-operative, polite, respectful, and easy to talk to. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they went out of their way to be tidy and considerate of all neighbours. Knowing I was disabled, they even took my inorganic rubbish to the front of my property for last week’s collection, which I truly appreciated.

I have never seen such a large group of people work so hard in quite trying circumstances. It was like Grand Central Station with vehicles and tradespeople coming and going, and everything went smoothly with no interruption to the tenants whatsoever.

It was extremely hot and the painting team worked up until 8.30pm some nights, without any complaints. There was no noise, no loud conversations, and no rubbish left behind; in fact I could not fault them. It was a pleasure to offer them cold drinks every day because they were working in extreme heat and no one slacked off at all. I was so impressed and I wanted management to know, because it is rare today that a job like this goes smoothly and according to plan. What a truly awesome team.

Thank you so much."
