• Conversion from bath to shower room

    My request for a quote was answered promptly and within 24 hours I had a price, date for the job, advice about new equipment and a suggested supplier. Matthew Woodgate is a highly skilled and knowledgeable craftsman and his workmanship and attention are second to none. He is totally reliable, kept me informed of progress and always left the working and adjacent areas of the property clean and tidy at the end of each day. The job started and finished on time and a small adjustment I asked for after he had left was dealt with promptly. I am delighted with my new shower room - he made the process painless, basically taking complete charge of the job and relieving me of any feeling of responsibility. I would feel totally confident of employing him again, and have no hesitation in recommending him to users of My Builder, for the very comprehensive and efficient service he offers.

  • Bathroom refit

    From arranging to view and price the job to completion Matt was great, our finished bathroom looks amazing. His professionalism, skills and punctuality are second to none and these traits alongside his friendly, helpful and trustworthy personality, going the extra mile to ensure everything was as we wanted, make him a 10 out of 10. I have already recommended him to both friends and family and will definitely use him for any future work myself.

  • Removal and refit ensuite

    Matt done a wonderful job of our ensuite. We had an awful 80's ensuite where the space was poorly used, he worked with and and advise us based on what we wanted. We left him our key and came back a week later to a beautiful new ensuite bathroom which was fitted expertly and to our spec. Especially our herringbone tiles which are stunning! During the week he also cut and fitted a new kitchen worktop and sink which looks beautiful. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him, in fact we already have to our neighbours and family!

  • refit bathroom

    Couldn't have found a better tradesman. Experienced, knowledgeable and friendly. Nothing too much trouble. Extremely satisfied with the quality of his work. Would definitely recommend Matt and would not hesitate asking him to return to complete further work.

  • Kitchen Refurbishment, new units, worktop etc.

    Matt did a great job with our Kitchen fitting. He was one of few that not only turned up on time to access the job but actually provided a quote shortly after without the need of chasing up multiple times! It surprised me how many fitters turned up and then never provided a quote. Matt was professional and very friendly. For the first few days I took time off work to make decisions on the electrics, where sockets would go and help rip out the old kitchen. The rest of the time I called on my lunch to find out everything was going to plan without a hitch. We made adhoc changes as required and he took pride in his work.

    The tradesmen he used; plasterer and electrician were also very friendly. The electrician did another job for me whilst here, which I was very happy with.

    I asked Matt to add under cabinet and plinth LED strips which wasn't originally in the plan and he fitted this in at a reasonable cost and they look great!

    I wouldn't hesitate recommending Matt to friends and family looking for a Kitchen fitter who was reasonably priced, on time, tidy and trustworthy to leave in the house on his own.

  • Bathroom and kitchen refit

    Matt has just completed an entire bathroom and kitchen re-fit. From the moment he set foot in my home he has been the consummate professional and gentleman. His standards are very high and this out me at ease very quickly. He is always punctual and his planning for jobs is meticulous. The quality of the work was fantastic and it is nice to know someone who has a real pride in his work and a love for what he does. It's annoying really but he is also a very good bloke who I trusted from the outset. You can't do better than Matt and trust me, I've employed a lot of tradespeople in my time!

  • Bathroom Fitting

    Did exactly as promised for the price quoted, honest, reliable, friendly, tidy and proficient. We absolutely love the work he has done in our bathroom. We would definitely recommend him to be others - in fact he is coming back to do our kitchen shortly. Can't wait! Thanks Matt.

  • Bathroom fitting

    We are over the moon with our new bathroom that Matt installed for us. We had 4 quotes and Matt's price was very reasonable and we had the most confidence in him.
    We were so impressed with Matt - he is such a hard worker, completing the whole project on his own in just two weeks, keeping any disruption to an absolute minimum. He kept us informed every step of the way, and was such a friendly person to have around the house. His attention to detail is outstanding (everything is absolutely perfect!) and he's created a stunning bathroom for us!
    We would definitely recommend Matt, and he will be our first port of call for any future projects!

  • Tiling- Partway to ceiling

    Matt did an amazing and neat job with tiling our bathroom. He is very approachable and a good listener. I would use him again and recommend him to others.

  • Removing cupboard to install dishwasher.

    Matt did a great job with my dishwasher. It didn't go according to plan, by an error on my part, but he didn't charge me extra for getting another part. He also took great care of my kittens as I was unable to be there. Top man.

  • Bathroom redesign and fitting

    We knew Matt's work was very good after he fitted our kitchen but he really proved his worth with our replacement bathroom!
    Matt first fitted our Wren kitchen - and it really was quite a task as so much was wrong with the units. However, Matt dealt with the problems in such a professional way that we need not have worried.
    Our family bathroom needed a complete redesign and wow - what a result!
    Cannot recommend him high enough and any prospective customers can be assured he will do them proud. He is not the cheapest but certainly the best we have come across in 45 years as homeowners.

  • Convert kitchen cupboard space to space for dishwasher

    Matt did a great job converting a kitchen cupboard into a dishwasher space for us in our new house, sorting the plumbing and electrics, including replacing the flex for the cooker which he noticed was of the incorrect type while doing the main job. He also sorted the plumbing for the washing machine after we found the people we bought the house from had hacked off the waste pipe. Finally he sorted some dodgy kitchen cabinet doors, some internal doors that weren't closing properly and a problem with a floorboard. Very happy with all his work. Highly recommended.

  • Remove old and replace

    Matt and his team did a fantastic job. Even though there were issues with the property due to it's age the issues were fixed and the job finished on time. No mess, no fuss, a really good job done. Will definitely hire again, in fact Matt is booked in for March already. Recommend.

  • to fit bathroom suite in small bathroom

    I found Matt to be a very helpful and friendly man where nothing was too much trouble. I have a hearing disability and not good on phones but he kept in touch regularly by texts which helped me. He turned up when he said he would and finished the work exactly as scheduled. I'm extremely pleased with the bathroom and he not only fitted the bathroom suite and tiling but the little touches as well i.e mirror and accessories on the wall. He did everything I asked him to do even when i changed my mind a couple of times! When I asked the day before he was due to fit bathroom if a towel rail heater could be installed, he said it was no trouble at all. I was so pleased with him that I will be hiring him again sometime in the new year to fit a new kitchen! To sum Matt up he is a professional, trustworthy, friendly, reliable guy where nothing was too much trouble for him. I'm 100 % happy with his work and would recommend him to anyone.

  • Install water softener

    Matthew was very prompt, turned up when he said he would. Fitted my water softener very well .tidied up after himself ,even mended a broken unit door .Polite and pleasant and reasonable . Thank you Matthew .

  • On-suite shower refit

    Matt did a superb job on our shower re-fit. For such a confined area the result is amazing. He is very accommodating and helpful when it comes to solutions and extra jobs. Matt is professional, reliable and well organised, keeping the area tidy each day. I would definitely recommend him. A brilliant job done by a lovely guy!

  • Kitchen refit & tiling

    Matt did a great job of a not so straight forward project, i.e. trying to fit my old kitchen into my daughters. It looks like a new kitchen with the wonderful tiling he did on the walls and floor too. I would highly recommend Matt to do a professional job for you.

  • Tile Kitchen

    Matt did a great job. Workmanship was very good. Timekeeping was perfect. Matt was pleasant and helpful throughout the job, despite some last minute changes, and provide good advice too. I would not hesitate to recommend Matt to anyone. Cost of the job was exactly as estimated, and very reasonable.

  • worktop

    Thank you for coming out so quick , brilliant job , once again you have gone the extra mile and exelled all expectations .

  • Kitchen fitting

    Matt fitted our Homebase bought kitchen over four days just as quoted. He organised the gas side of things and completed the plumbing side (as well as putting in an outside tap). The finish of the kitchen was enhanced ten fold by Matts workmanship and attention to detail. Overall Matt was an absolute pleasure to work with and I would have no hesitation recommending him!

  • Whole Bathroom Refurbishment

    Mat did an excellent job on our Bathroom refurbishment. He was very clean,tidy and trustworthy. Unfortunately we sparked a small leak a few weeks latter, which he came and sorted straight-away. We're very happy we choose Matt and would highly recommend him.

  • Renovate kitchen

    Matthew is a lovely man and a good craftsman. He did a great job on our kitchen, which was a wreck when he started. He is respectful and his communications skills are excellent as are his organisational skills, which meant everything was co-ordinated to cause the least disruption to the household.

    Our house is small and with the family around he had to be very flexible. He was really good with the kids – and the dogs! And he was very tidy, clearing up after himself everyday, which made things so much easier.

    He’s a great listener and forward plans. He even bothered to leave us details of the flooring used in the kitchen with advice as to where to get it, so that we can use the same material in the living room when we get round to it.

    He is good at talking things through and made sure I was happy every step of the way. If things changed he would ring me or talk to me to make sure I was OK with his plans.

    His finished work is lovely and he was very conscientious about snagging when the kitchen was finished. In fact he is brilliant and I can’t fault him.

  • Install new shower, retiling and plasterboarding

    Really impressed with our new shower. Matt is extremely professional and polite, and most importantly he did an excellent job fitting a new shower unit (including re tiling and shower tray) and extractor fan. We would definitely use him again.
    Highly recommended.

  • refit an en-suite

    Matt turned out to be the right choice for my project. He worked quickly and accurately, to schedule and to budget. He fitted a high end bathroom suite and shower system with care and attention to detail, including the tiling. The result is an excellent and professional finish. While I can take the credit for the choice of fittings etc he certainly deserves all the credit for execution. I shall be hiring him again as he is possibly the best all round fitter I ever used.

  • En Suite Bathroom

    Matt has done a great job with our ensuite bathroom. A complete transformation.
    He was always prompt and at the end of each day tidied up any mess.
    After the job was complete, a very minor snag with our shower cubicle was resolved the same day.
    We would highly recommend.

  • Bathroom fitter

    Fantastic job, very Clean and tidy. Lovely finish on my bathroom. A very happy customer

  • Replacing the bathroom sink, toilet and bath tap.

    Finding Matthew was a huge weight off our shoulders. My wife and I own a rental property in Colchester but we currently live and work in China! Previously I had to rely on my parents for urgent maintenance issues but their handy work and internet skills are very limited meaning maintenance was always a large headache.
    Matthew is honest, trustworthy, reliable and hardworking, solving unexpected problems that arise. Matthew now communicates directly with my tenants e-mailing me details of the maintenance required along with a clear quote, list of parts required and a schedule.
    I had a tight schedule to revamp the bathroom and kitchen, Matthew supported us and even lent us his tools so that we could finish on time. Some parts I purchased did not fit, Matthew told me what to buy and from where.
    If you require someone who will take responsibility of your project, then seriously consider Matthew.

  • Retile bathroom

  • bathroom refit

    Matt was able to convert my ideas into reality.

    I will use Matt for future projects and would not hesitate in recommending him to others!

  • Convert kitchen re-circulating extractor fan to ducted

    Matt did a great job converting kitchen extractor fan to one that is ducted to the outside. This was potentially a very tricky job, but Matt thought out the whole process before starting, which resulted in all ducting to be completely hidden from view.
    A really professional job by someone you can always rely on and be confident in.
    Highly recommended.

Mathew said that he could fiber glass the top pond and the problem was solved. He did an excellent job and it was very professionally done. He was hard working, polite and very cost effective. I would highly recommend him to anyone. Also the quality of his work is top class, a perfectionist. Matthew arrived to do the work as arranged on time. I believe Mathew's strengths are his vast knowledge in many trades, he is a true professional.
