Potential extension project Groundwork & Foundations
We hired Matt and his team to undertake our large two storey extension. The job had a number of challenges and Matt reassured us right from the outset that he had the skill and capability to pull the job off to a high standard. The guys worked extremely hard and always turned up every day without fail. Every key stage of the project was undertaken with great skill and care. Matt had the project well controlled and was totally able to put us at ease. He's created a fantastic extension which is to a high quality and standard which is testament to his professionalism and great craftsmanship. We would have no problem or hesitation in recommending Matt and his team as you can be assured of a great project outcome. It's been a great pleasure working with him and we have made a true friend in undertaking this project. Needless to say, the next project we do, Matt will be our first call.

Retaining garden wall replacement Bricklaying
Had several quotes for building a garden wall with steps and to lower some raised drain covers. Although this was not the cheapest, it was itemised so you could see how the cost was made up. The workmen were very pleasantand turned up every day until the job was completed. They were happy to include several changes that were made during the construction. We have other work required in the future and will certainly use them again. Highly recommended.

Ground clearance / soil removal Groundwork & Foundations
I hired Matthew and his team to carry out some ground clearance in my back garden to make it ready for me to install astro turf, decking and paving. His team of Chris, Gareth and Ryan, did a great job, working extremely hard in some pretty rubbish weather, they filled and cleared 4 skips in two days then went on to build a wall, raise a manhole cover, and backfill and compact the whole area. I would definately use their services again, and thouroughly recommend them to anyone looking for a good reasonably priced builder. Matthew provides an honest quotation, with all aspects of the work itemised, so it's clear what you're getting for your cash.

Rear single storey extension. Extensions
Shane, Ryan and Gareth made the effort of constructing my extension to a high standard. Shane, the foreman, was very punctual, methodical in his work and would not leave until he is satisfied with his work. He is the backbone of Matthew's Building Services.
Matthew's Building Services is impressive and worth the wait.

Leaking flat roof Roofing
We spoke to 3 different builders before choosing Matthew's Building Services and are confident we made the right decision. Their quote wasn't the cheapest but nor was it the most expensive. Matthew came to the house and had a good look at our roof and took the time and trouble to trouble-shoot and pin-point the real source of the problem. His builders have now repaired our flat roof, and it looks much better than it ever did before. They also capped our facias with PVC, and we are really pleased with the job they did, it's very neat even round all the awkward steps in the exterior walls that we have. Matthew's Building Services are friendly, helpful and professional and I recommend them unreservedly.

Really pleased. Matthews team analysed the problem thoroughly and returned to fix the leak with a minimum of fuss. Am very very pleased to have found Matthew through this site. Thank you!

Matthew arrived on time to give a quote and after inspecting the roof he gave a reasonable figure and what's more, offered to complete the job there and then. Both he and his teammate Shane appeared to show a good working knowledge of their trade. They completed the job in a most satisfactory manner and not one more drop of water has leaked into our kitchen in spite of the considerable amount of rainfall received since. His pleasant manner has inspired me to ask him for an estimate on another job for me.

Garden retaining /concrete drive plus other work Bricklaying
Matthew and his team have just completed an extension utility room for me. I can't fault from start to finish. A friendly and experienced team who worked mega hard and took personal pride in the work they were doing, even through some very nasty wet days, very clean and punctual. I was kept well informed throughout and will definitely use again and recommend to others. A builder to be trusted. Thanks.

damp problem Damp Proofing
The “damp problem” as I posted seemed quite innocuous, but as expected it turned out to be a substantial problem. After trying various different options to try and eradicate the problem unsuccessfully, I decided it was time to have the job done properly. Mathew had done a job previously for me, so I invited him along with 2 other builders (not from My Builder) to give me an idea of how best to proceed.
I was advised by all that the rear of the house needed to be re-rendered as there was penetrating damp. Each builder gave me varying different advice, but Mathew was the only one to give me a complete breakdown of the cost of each part of the job which I think was invaluable as regards to understand how the total price was reached. I felt Mathew understood what I wanted, and because of a previous successful experience I felt he should do the job.
From the day the scaffolding was erected to the completion of the job exactly 11 days, hack off old render, scratch coat render, fine scratch coat render, tyrolean render finish (each coat of render applied with the correct water proofing agents), dry verge with re-felting under slate tiles, waste pipes replaced and two coats of pliolite paint to finish job. A fairly big job as you can see.
Mathew was not the cheapest, but he was definitely the right choice to do the job. His lads were highly professional and did a great job. They also made sure everything was clean and tidy every day before they left. A very impressive job.

Matthew was a friendly guy who came and quoted me for the job within a couple of days. I gave him the job and agreed a start date and timescale to do the job which was adhered to. I would use him again and would reccommend him to other people. He kept to times agreed, gave a good quote for the job and did the job to a very good standard

leaking roof Roofing
After a year of water coming into my home and several builders later we have eventually found someone who knows what he's talking about. Matthew was really fantastic taking pictures on his phone and actually showing us the problem instead of giving us complete BS and taking our money as the others had done. Really impressed with the work, he brought along two other guys who were hardworking and polite. We will definitely be having him back. A builder I can trust is worth his weight in gold I reckon, we've been stung many times. Thankyou Matthew and team!!

Repair a stone wall Bricklaying
Very pleasant to deal with, both Matthew and two men who did job. Needed repair for part of a stone wall that had fallen down. Didn't get any other quotes so can't compare prices but seemed reasonable enough, tidy job. Cleaned up after themselves. Prompt quote and start of work.

We had a number of quotes from local building companies to extend the boundary wall of our garden with a brick and stone wall, level the ground and put down pea shingle. None of the other builders gave a such a detailed breakdown of the costs involved, instead they gave a broad description and a price. Matthew's quote was detailed, so we knew exactly where we could trim certain bits and add to others. Matthew and his boys turned up early, left late and worked through the weekend to ensure that the job was finished within the time frame he had estimated. They were all polite and left our garden neat at the end of each day. Many people walking past our house commented on the excellent progress and the standard of work that they produced. We are more than happy to recommend Matthew and are planning on getting him and his boys back to do some additional internal work in the future.

Yard paved, apx 16' x 40' and extra carpentry work. Landscape Gardening
I must start by saying that I am a notoriously particular person when it comes to my home and garden and like things finished to a high standard. I had designed how I wanted the project to look and had a budget to stick to. I was extremely impressed by Matthew and his team, he took my design and respectfully explained how certain aspects may need to be altered to suit the ground, Matthew gave me a blow by blow account of how much each part of the job would cost and where possible he worked with us to reduce costs to allow us to stay within our budget. He also showed me photographs of other jobs he had completed and kept in contact with us throughout to ensure we were happy with the development. The end result is spectacular, we are absolutely thrilled with the paving, the layout and the purpose built veranda is splendid and adds such character to our home. Matthew treated us as old friends and worked as if the garden were his own, his team were friendly and polite and always tidy. I wouldn't hesitate to contact Matthew for any future building work, there doesn't seem to be anything they can't do! If you are considering Matthew for your project I would absolutely recommend him and his team.

Damp patches on bedroom wall Roofing
Matthew was quick to respond to our request and wasted no time in visiting. He got on the roof and took photos of the problem so that we were able to see the cause. The following week Matthew came with his lads and worked well to complete the job at a time that was convenient to us. They kept us informed throughout of the work they were doing. As we have had little rain since the job was completed, we have still to discover if the job is a complete success, but we remain hopeful as Matthew seemed to know his stuff. We would definitely use Matthew again and would recommend to others because of his courteous, knowledgable and efficient approach to the job.

We chose Matthew because although not the cheapest we were able to view drives that had been laid up to 7 years ago and that was important for us as we didn't want to spend money only to have to have it redone in a few years. The drives we saw were very good and the people we spoke to very happy so we hired him. We are very happy with the result. Matthew was polite and professional and the driveway looks great. It wasn't the easiest of jobs as we had to get him to relay an oil pipe and also work round a neighbours gas pipe that we didn't realise was on our property but he took it all in his stride and sorted everything out. I would definitely use him again and recommend him to others. Grand job and well worth the money!

Garden wall, block and render Bricklaying
A good crew who turned up on time every day and started work straight away. They worked all day without messing around and got the job done in good time.
They put right problems left by the previous builder and the work is of very good standard.
They cleaned up well after the job was complete.
There was a small issue with what was required and what was quoted for but this was as much my fault as theirs and it was an issue that was sorted easily. From this I'm confident that if any issues do arise they sort them out with little fuss.
The only negative is that there was some building materials left over at the end of the job, for which I had already paid the supplier, that they took with them when they left. A small gripe though in what was a very satisfactory job.

Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder Driveways
Matthew has recently replaced my Tarmac drive with a larger brick paving drive & footpath. To date the drive appears to be settling very well although he was asked to return once to level out a small area of pathway which was not straight. He did this willingly and without any problems. Other work he has done for me includes a paved patio, 2 X 2m high x 2m wide double skin boundary brick walls, roofing coping stones reseated and replacement of a section of roofing felt which had decayed. Work quality was to the required standard, on time and although once or twice extras were incurred I was satisfied with the pricing. Matthew is enthusiastic with his work, employs hard working people and is willing to adapt to change should there be unforeseen difficulties.

Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder Driveways
Mathew carried out a removal of an old path and patio and replaced it using natural sandstone. He dug new footings for a retaining wall and made steps onto my garden. His work was in my opinion of a very high standard and I would not hesitate to recommend him to family and friends. His quote was value for money and certainly not excessive. He arrived on time and stayed on site until the job was completed. I found him to have good values and his team were all polite and hard working.
