Non-treated Timber Solutions

Do you have a leaky home or think your home might be prone to leaking? In 1998, a change in the New Zealand Standard for Timber Treatment allowed the use of untreated kiln-dried timber in wall framing. If this untreated timber framing gets wet, the timber starts to rot.

As protective coating specialists, we are experienced in the application of timber treatment to non-treated timber. As long as your wall framing is undamaged, we can treat the timber and prevent potential decay.


Careful cleaning, washing and preparation of all surfaces are key to a quality paint job.


Ensuring the working environment is safe and secure for you, your family, your employees and our people is our number one priority. We use only the best scaffolding systems to meet OSH site requirements and to provide stable, sturdy working platforms.

Project Management

When you contract us to do a job, you don’t have to go anywhere else. We offer a one stop shop for all your residential and commercial project needs and manage other contractors as required for plumbing, electrical services, glazing, plastering, gib stopping, even roofing and deck construction.

Security Clearance

All our staff have high security clearance in major NZ companies and government organisations and these are available to view upon request. With this in mind, you can have the utmost confidence when dealing with JL Decorating.
