Peninsula Roofing & Scaffolding



I recently had your company do a scaffolding job for me. The two Rastas that turned up (Sean and Kurt) were really awesome guys in every respect. They were outstanding from a customer viewpoint. Respectful, considerate, polite, knew their stuff backwards and were very tidy. I was impressed by their loyalty to your company too and they certainly worked hard. It was obvious they like their job and it showed. Frankly they were a pleasure to have around and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to others. Please would you pass on my thanx to them and lastly, look after them. Fellows of their calibre are hard to find.  


" I was initially impressed how the firm quote was based on a site visit and not by a Google map estimation.

I requested firm dates for the reroof and these dates were complied with. The scaffolding, roofing was done on the agreed dates.

The roofing team, led by a chap called Taylor were courteous, hard working totally respectful. 

The job was checked out by the Company owner and his Manager.

Quite frankly I was impressed with this company and am thankful for their good work.

Finally the quote price was stuck to, with no extras.

So big thanks to Peninsula."

We had our roof replaced and were so glad they managed to get the job done a lot sooner than expected. Fantastic professional and personal service. We were updated frequently whilst the project was taking place to keep us in the loop. Our property was left spotless. Thanks so much guys! Highly recommend!

Great product and great service February 11, 2022

"Our experience with the team at Peninsula Roofing and Scaffolding was very positive. Our roof went on right before Christmas at a time when the whole building industry was under pressure with both supply chain and installation issues. This is a team who have been in the roofing and scaffolding business for many years and their professionalism shone through enabling our roof and guttering to go on without a hitch. They were constantly in touch regarding timing and all of the tradespeople we dealt with were responsive and professional in everything they did for us. We couldn't recommend them highly enough."   


Many thanks for your service which was very prompt and very professional and the service your staff provided on the roof survey and roof repair was excellent, Your Staff should be thanked for their professionalism.

Thank you very much.

A huge thank you Peninsula for your excellent service. We were most impressed with the guys who erected our scaffolding. Their expertise was evident from the moment they arrived. Not only were they professional, they were focussed, efficient and pleasant. We would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone wanting scaffolding put up. 

Thank you again also Mike Reihana who was so helpful.

I’ve worked with Richard since he moved to the Coromandel 14 years ago. They’re reliable, the scaffolding is up when they say it’ll be up and if there’s any possible delay, which very rarely happens, they call us straight away to let us know. All the guys in the team are great too, their quotes are very competitive and they’re a brilliant team.

Fosters have been using Peninsula Roofing and Scaffolding for four years on a variety of projects including the Oceans Resort, Placemaker’s, Firth Concrete and the Thames Coromandel District Offices in Whitianga. Fosters is a commercial construction company who prides itself on using the best subcontractors, and Peninsula Roofing and Scaffolding are in this category for all our roofing, scaffolding and cladding work.

Nothing is a hassle for the team at Peninsula Roofing and Scaffolding. They always do what they say, what else can we ask? It is because of Richard and his teams can do attitude that covers all jobs big and small that Fosters has no hesitation in recommending them to others.

FTF Enterprises Limited
We moved over to New Zealand from America in 2001 and shortly after we purchased a house in Whitianga, the house needed to be re-roofed and that’s when Peninsula Roofing and Scaffolding came and did the work for us.

We had a great experience; they have an excellent follow up service they were sensitive and always took the time to listen to any queries or problems we had. Peninsula Roofing and Scaffolding are the best example I have come across of what a company should perform like, a lot of businesses are in holiday mode in Whitianga and it portrays in their work, this is definitely not the case with Peninsula Roofing and Scaffolding.
Gene Lotter, Whitianga
Christine and I want to express our thanks and gratitude to the team that worked on our house project in Whitianga for the excellent outcome. We thought it proper to let you know directly we appreciated your work at our house.

I was very very pleased with the outcome of your job on the site. I thought after the indecision re the roof tile type and colours, I may have unsettled the job. It worked out just perfectly in the end. The job looks just great, the tile type suits the house and the colour is perfect.

We would have no hesitation in recommending your company and really appreciate the work you did.

This is just a thank you note for the professional work done by your Company, in particular by the pleasant and competent men who carried out the job.

Starting with your friendly receptionist, then getting Geoff's inspection and recommendations, through to meeting Ben and Brett I have been most impressed with your staff. It was heartening to watch the two pleasant young men working, and to see a pair of blokes who are a thorough credit to their employers. They carried out their task together in a very tradesman-like fashion and when they were finished they cleaned up perfectly.

They are a great asset to your Company, and because of them I will be very pleased to recommend Peninsula Roofing to any one who wants to hear me say so.

Ted Meyer
Thanks for the prompt and efficient service by your consultant.  We were impressed. The two guys who did the job were extremely helpful.  Good staff are your window to the world and they did good.  Should the need arise, we will certainly use your service again. Thanks.

Peninsula Roofing was most helpful during the design phase of our beach house and then excelled beyond my expectations with the roof installation. Over the last 45 years I have inspected many roofs – this installation was the best I have seen - excellent workmanship with careful attention to detail. This quality of work is a testament to Peninsula Roofing and the valuable support provided by the NZ Metal Roof Manufacturers Inc. Well done!

You guys have been awesome and would have no issue recommending you to others.

It has been on my mind to call Richard to compliment him and the team on how good you all have been to deal with. As Richard knows, I owned my own business for many years in construction. I can see from the outside as a customer how well run things are.

It would be my pleasure to be a reference customer. I think it is really important to let people know when they have done a great job. From experience, you tend to trade in complaints and issues, and I know how much I appreciated people saying thanks.

I would recommend your business to anyone who asks. Fair and transparent charges, good communication, a great team, and I can see you have great systems and processes and a well run profitable business. And that is down to you and Richard.

Well done and thank you.
