I have found Matt a very hard working and conscientious builder who is sympathetic to keeping a property in character with its design. I have felt completely at ease with him working on my property and would definitely recommend him.

I have known Matt Holmes for some 4 years and know him to be an honest and hard working man. He recently re-roofed an area of my house and the job was well executed and entirely satisfactory.

We found Matt Holmes to not only be a highly skilled builder, but also trustworthy,an excellent communicator and constantly hard working. The 1st floor side extension and porch extension transformed our Mucklow style semi-detached house and we couldn't have been happier with the final result. We would certainly recommend Matt Holmes to any friends or family and will certainly approach him regarding any building work we may require in the future.

"Thanks so much for the landscaping works in our garden, looks fantastic! Already recommended you to my parents! Great to finally find a builder that really puts a shift in!

Matt recently laid a patio, walkway with steps up to our decking and railway sleepers along our back fence. Always arrived early, worked in the snow and freezing weather. I recommended him to my parents who have also had more complex works completed, also really happy and have asked for more quotes.

What a relief to find a builder that won't make do, botch things up or rip you off !
Matthew Holmes has extended our house twice now, the Lounge and Dining Room both single storey, the Kitchen 2 Storey incorporating an En-suite Shower Room and separate Dressing Room in the second storey. He has also laid patio's and put up new fence work for us - our next project is to be the installation of a new Bio Chemical Septic Tank.  He is a good hard working man that we can say is totally trustworthy and if he doesn't believe that something won't work, or look right, then he won't undertake the work - and there's not many people you can say that about is there

Matt Holmes has carried out the following building works for me over the last twelve to eighteen months:

Re-roofing three bedroom detached bungalow and fitting new Velux windows.

Stripping out and refitting shower room, floor and wall tiling plus shower unit and sanitary ware. Skim ceiling plaster and decorate.

Replacing guttering and down spouts.

Replacing cantilever carport support.

All works have been carried out to my entire satisfaction and l have found Matt to be completely trustworthy and extremely versatile in resolving any problems which may occur in the course of his work.

 I have no hesitation in recommending him for all aspects of the build trade.

We are so pleased with the extension to our bungalow that Matt Holmes undertook for us and was impressed with the way that he managed to make it a relatively painless experience.  He was so professional and well organised throughout the build  and he is such a hard worker.  The quality of his work is extremely high, nothing ever fazed him and he was so easy to talk to.  If you are looking for a fabulous, reliable, honest builder, then look no further.

I am very happy with the work Matt Holmes did for me - if you want an extension built, Mat does the job with full effect. Very pleased.
