Kowhai Wanganui is owned and operated by Tony & Sharon Bishell. They have also owned Kowhai Taranaki since 2016.

Tony was born and raised in Taumaranui. After leaving school he did seasonal farm work. A keen interest in building saw him build his own home in the off-season. He enjoyed it so much he completed an apprenticeship and become a qualified carpenter.

Tony was a self-employed-builder for many years but after marrying Sharon, the pair changed focus and developed a successful painting and plastering business which they based in Christchurch after the 2011 Earthquakes

They returned North in 2016 where they took on Kowhai Taranaki, expanding into Wanganui in 2023.

These days they run a crew of 6. In line with best practice, they have a strong emphasis on safety with the team having achieved Site Safe Working at Heights as well as Ropes & Harnesses Certification.

Kowhai Wanganui services from Mokau to Marton.

Extremely professional and expert service. Fantastic communication and response to my inquiry regarding inspecting, quoting and repairing my roof in the middle of winter, thus preventing water leakage into my house which was 1 x day away from its first open house. Highly recommend them for people needing roof work done.
