Surface with A Smile was founded in 1987 by owner Brett Walker, originally working out of a small factory off Henderson Valley Road; finally settling where the main office is today @ 53 Portage Road, New Lynn. Brett’s background includes being a qualified Car Painter by trade who has successfully diversified into cabinetry. 

Our team maybe small in numbers (just under 20) but deliver on skilled detail orientated people, who are true customer service professionals with our clients and take a great deal of pride in their craft.  

Reviews by others speak volumes, testimonials can be found via the No Cowboys Website, which is an internet directory of service businesses across New Zealand and is free to use for all consumers! Click here to view their website.

We would love to assist you in the process of transforming one of the two (kitchen & bathroom) rooms which yield the most resell value in a house, or simply reinvigorate your central hub. A well maintained Kitchen in our lives influences our lifestyle to a great degree, and is often called the ‘King’ of the house.

Brett and his team are awesome. Always on time and exceptional quality and prices.
