Ron Avery, General Manager Contracting, Polymer Group: Rod is a licensed applicator of our Permachip Designer Coatings, Epoxy Flooring systems, Duraflex Cemetious Urethane flooring systems, Specialist Novalac Epoxy Tank Lining systems, and our Polyurethane and Polyurea Plural Component containment and waterproofing systems. Rod has worked for our Contracting Division for ten years as a Subcontractor and as contract labour on most of our large industrial contracts, many involving specific training and very tight timeframes. Rod has always been professional in his approach and extremely capable in the work he undertakes. As for Permachip coating, Rod has more experience and product knowledge than anybody. In business and personally Rod is personable to deal with.
Deborah Berry, Civil Coordinator, Whakatane Boardmills (previously Carter Holt Harvey): I have used Rod as a supplier & applicator for around six years, including three years in my previous role as a Property Management Project Manager at the Hamilton City Council. I continued using Rod when I came to Whakatane because I was really happy with his previous work and he was willing to travel to the Bay of Plenty. Rod has good technical knowledge of the products and curing capabilities which has enabled him to specify the correct product with an appropriate curing time as a lot of work has to be carried out to meet restricted timeframes within a Mill Shut. Rod also understands the importance of adequate preparation as well as application of the product and therefore his work has always been completed to a high standard. Rod and his staff have always complied with the strict Health & Safety requirements of our site. He is very easy to work with and I would definitely recommend him as a competent reliable contractor.
Paul Rattray, Certified Builder: During the design stages of a beach house in Tairua our client wanted to make the most of the views by incorporating large patio/deck areas that would complement the design of the house. We had the basic idea of what was required, being timber/ply construction overlaid with a waterproof membrane and covered with a decorative non-skid finish. We first met Rod at the Waikato Home show and discussed our ideas. Rod took the time to show us the various options he had available to suit our needs. Rod’s communication was excellent and he knew his products. He also supplied us with a producer statement for the local authorities. The final job was exactly what we required and very competitive cost wise compared to other options on the market. As a member of the New Zealand Certified Builders Association, I can recognise good quality workmanship. If you want to talk quality first, I recommend you talk to Rod.
Haki Walker, Painting Supervisor, Hamilton City Council: We have used Rod for about ten years to apply flooring coatings in hard wearing public areas like ablution blocks and changing rooms. His work has proven to be very durable and that is why he is still a supplier to the Hamilton City Council. The first job Rod did for us was in the heavily used men’s shower area of the Hamilton YMCA and the floor surface still looks as good as the day it was done. Rod is good at following client briefs and will provide valuable recommendations where needed. He has supplied us with a very good service and I would recommend him.
Andrew Lenny, Maintenance Engineer, LSG Sky Chefs: We supply inflight meals to the majority of the airlines servicing Auckland International Airport and at our busiest churn out about 23,000 meals a day. Having the right flooring surface in our kitchen area is critical for us. Rod has helped us tremendously by recommending the most cost effective products to achieve the functionality we require. He always does a really great job and goes out of his way to work around our work schedule, which is madness at its best. We work 24/7 so quite often Rod and his team are here at night, working through to around 4am in the morning to make sure the floor will be dry in time for our staff to use it. He will even bring in extra people if needed to make sure he gets the job done on time. Rod has never let us down and is always out by the agreed time. His product knowledge is brilliant and he is very straight up with whatever we need to know. I have 100% faith that whatever Rod advises will be the right thing to do. In the three years I have worked with Rod, I have found him to be exceptionally reliable to work with and very professional in the way he carries out his business. He is very mindful of OSH and our strict hygiene requirements, and is also a good communicator.
