As a designer I hired Matthew for a few projects including a renovation of a 7000 sq ft home. The talk was great and the excuses were even better. Even though our reno was not completed, we hired him on another job as well.
He installed the hot and cold in opposite directions. Upon calling him on this, he stated that they are European fittings and that is the reason. So we had to cut the wall open to correct the problem. Upon doing this we noticed that there was a this way up arrow, pointing to the floor. So after cutting open two bathrooms at a clients....AT OUR EXPENCE.. He did the repair.
Upon calling hime for the same problem for the four bathrooms in our home he said he would take care of it. Sure enough, he was a no show. Then after some time, he left a message that he had medical problems and the company has been shut down.
So here I am in the cold, with HORRIFIC workmanship and he has stated he is out of business.
Oddly enough, I have passed him in his Van and seen him around town on jobs.
Like I said....GOOD TALK !!!! TOO BAD IT IS ALL EXCUSES AND B.S. !!!!!!!!!
I would watch out for this one !!!
