" Matthew replaced 7 internal doors with braced and ledger style doors to suit our 400 year old Cottage. We were so impressed we asked Matthew to replace several windows and frames and a very special bow shaped external door as well. An excellent job, first class workmanship."
- Graham and Jane R
" Just a note to say how delighted we are with the excellent job you did building our decking, it is such a professional job and to a very high standard, and we have had many compliments on how well made it is.
We would like to say you are a true professional who takes care of every detail and we would not hesitate in recommending you to friends and family."
- Ken and Ethel R
" The first job Matt did on our property was re-cladding the garden cabin replacing the wooden boards with the new cement fibre board from America called HardiePlank. He did a fantastic job with it and it looked so good we decided to open the cabin as a Bed and Breakfast accommodation. Matt replaced the old roof with cedar shingles which again he did with great precision and patience in very cold conditions. The end result is superb. Next, Matt worked inside the accommodation building partition walls, making new door frames, hanging doors, boxing in pipes in the bathroom and fitting new skirting boards. The final job and probably the most striking was when Matt laid a brand new oak floor. He is a conscientious, methodical craftsman and is totally trustworthy to have working in the house. His work is absolutely first class and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him."
- Regi
" We are absolutely delighted with the high quality bespoke solid oak stable door that you have recently completed for us. It looks stunning, and is completely draught proof, unlike the old door it replaced. Thank you Matthew, we will definitely ask you to do more work for us in the future."
- R. S. Rawlinson
" I recently commissioned Matthew to create an elaborately moulded staircase handrail, to match an existing 17th century one in my Grade II Listed house in which the stairwell has no true horizontals, verticals or right angles. He did so with consummate skill, great care and attention to detail. The handrail blends in perfectly and looks as though it has been there for several hundred years. I can thoroughly recommend this man's craftsmanship."
- Dr B Osborn
" If you are looking to employ a Carpenter to carry out work to a very high quality, in an efficient and professional manner, in my opinion there is only one person to contact... Matthew Bond"
- Irene S
" Matthew Bond has carried out two jobs for me in a grade 2 village property. The first was a hard wood door step, but the second a major re-working of a bedroom ceiling main beam and associated main beams after a significant collapse. Both jobs were well planned and carried out to a high standard and on time. The ceiling work earned the respect of the experienced traditional plasterers.

I would be more than happy to recommend his work to future potential customers."
- Cmdr Gordon-Lennox
" Matthew worked at our property in Westbourne to install a new solid oak floor throughout the ground floor of our cottage. Matthew's attention to detail was exceptional and I cannot fault the quality of his work in any way. The job was completed in a professional, tidy and work like manner, the whole job was completed without incident and we are extremely happy with the end result. In addition we asked Matthew to install new skirting boards throughout and hang a new door on our bathroom which were all professionally installed. Matthew was a pleasure to work with at all times through this job. We would have no hesitation in asking Matthew to work for us again and have asked him to design and quote for some solid shelves later this year."
- Graham and Prescilla
" Mr Bond is a very reliable, responsible bespoke carpenter. We were very satisfied indeed with the work carried out on our property. He also offers competitive prices which are fair and reasonable. Matthew Bond has a high standard of achievement and takes pride in his work."
- Mrs Lewis
" Matthew completed the refurbishment of two sash windows for us, he proved reliable and his work was of a professional standard and with good attention to detail. During the time Matthew was refurbishing the windows he was entrusted with a key to the property and proved to be most trustworthy and considerate, calling each time before entering the property.

The price Matthew quoted was competitive for the type of work undertaken, I would be more than happy for Matthew to undertake further work for us, in fact he will probably be coming back this summer to do the remaining windows."
- Nicola S
" Matthew Bond has recently installed a new front door in my grade 2 listed house in Westbourne. His work was very satisfactory and he was very pleasant to deal with, I would definitely ask him to do further work for me when the need arises."
- Mrs G. Birrell
" Matthew has done a number of jobs for us - repairing our summer house, repairing a wooden gable end, replacing a rotten window, replacing a number of window pains and building stackable wooden boxes for storing kindling wood in our front porch. He is an excellent and professional craftsman who I would happily recommend to anyone. The fact that we have used him several times speaks for itself."
- Michael F
" Thank you for the wonderful job you have done in transforming our old ranch style banister into a real feature. The glass and oak with the chrome is stunning. Everyone admires it and says how well it is fitted. Also, we we would like to thank you for being reliable, punctual and at a price we could afford. We have no hesitation in recommending you."
- M. Smith
" We had to drop you a line to let you know how pleased we are with our decking you did for us, and also all the other work you have done for us. We are so lucky to have found you, as we have only moved to Petersfield 4 months ago and your work was recommended to us. No doubt we will be calling on you again."
