Crafting a Legacy: Angela and Stephen’s Vision

Angela and Stephen Starr’s journey with Mates Rates Insulation began in late 2021, but the company’s legacy in insulation installing dates back to 2017.

We’ve been on a mission to expand our business and reach, ensuring homes from central and lower North Island are perfectly insulated.

We pride ourselves on working with quality brands such as Pink Batts, Mammoth, Bradford Gold, Earthwool, and Ecoinsulation, ensuring every install meets the highest standards of excellence.

Our Badge of Honour in Insulation Installing

Our dedication to creating healthy homes hasn’t gone unnoticed.

We’re proud of our extensive involvement with Kāinga Ora, a testament to our commitment to the NZ Government’s Healthy Homes initiative.

To us, this initiative is more than just a partnership; it’s a symbol of our dedication to the well-being of New Zealanders, and we’ve cultivated stellar relationships with property managers and landlords throughout the North Island.

This collaboration underscores our mission to provide exceptional insulation services.

Had Mates Rates Insulation install a ground moisture barrier in Whanganui. Great communication and were able to provide a rough quote from plans and photographs, and adjusted this after the job was completed. Booked me in for several days after the quote which was far faster than anyone else I had talked to; friendly team smashed it out in no time. Highly recommended.
