We are a local up and coming painting company that prides ourselves on the quality of the work we provide. Our primary focus will always be customer satisfaction and providing you with the best finish possible. We won’t leave the end of the brush until you are 100% satisfied with the end product.



GM Painters was established in Taupo by our owner Gareth Millar who is Taupo born and bred.
Gareth has been involved in the painting industry for almost 20 years, and has been trained by some of Taupo’s most experienced painters.
Gareth was determined to branch out on his own, and take his skills and knowledge to the Taupo community. His focus has always been to provide the best quality of workmanship to the client; and to work closely with his customers to ensure that the customer is 100% satisfied with the work. Under Gareth’s guidance, GM Painters has grown from just Gareth to a team of almost 20 painters and have quickly become one of Taupo’s biggest painting companies. Gareth works hard to pass on his knowledge in the field to ensure that we provide the finest work available.

In 2014 GM Painters became a RESENE ECO DECORATOR, which is a true testament to the hard work Gareth and the team put in. Only selected painting companies are asked to join this program, which is an honour and something the crew at GM Painters are proud to be a part of.

Testimonials from our valued clients

  • “As a Project Manager in the Construction Industry I rely on Companies and Sub Trades that deliver a quality service and product. GM Painters from Taupo meet this criteria. GM Painters have worked on several of my projects, including our own personal home, and have completed the job to a very professional standard, efficiently, and within the time constraints set. Their customer service is beyond reproach. I have no hesitation in recommending this company.”

    - Chrissy Simmen

  • “Our property at Kinloch consisted of two dwelling on the one site, both with Shadowclad on the exterior. The cladding had shown some deterioration and we decided to investigate Resene cool colour technology. The Resene people were very helpful and recommended GM as a good local painter to do the job for us. Gareth went out of his way to provide all the information we needed to fully consider if the additional cost of an undercoat system to provide the highest level Cool Colour protection was warranted or not, and we decided to go with it. Gareth was an excellent communicator all the way through the job and this included sending us regular photo’s of progress (we are Auckland based), it was a pleasure to deal with someone who delivered on their promise, did a great job and never once needed a follow up. Without hesitation we would recommend GM Painters to others”

I can confidently recommend GM Painters to anyone who values the above qualities and would have no hesitation in using them again."
