Carol & Keith Hilton

Matthew has renovated 3 floors of our house (along with other tradesmen) involving joinery, carpentry, dry wall, laminate floors, wall and floor tiling and fitting a luxury kitchen. All this work was carried out to a very high standard. He is very versatile, skilful and has a good eye for detail. He is also very hardworking and a very pleasant person to work with. Can’t recommend him highly enough.

Michelle Peverley-Fox, Stamford bridge

Matthew has been amazing fitting our kitchen and other jobs around the house. He’s a grafter with a great sense of humour and a wealth of experience and advice. His work is impeccable and he cleans as he goes too! The staff he employed to help were great too. Highly recommended by us both. Thank you so much!!

Dan, Huntington, York

Couldn’t recommend Matt enough. He did an amazing job of our kitchen that needed a complete overhaul as it was so dated and even had some exposed pipes covered by a plastic cover. We weren’t quite sure exactly how we wanted it but Matt had some brilliant ideas like making a bespoke microwave unit, made some extra shelving from some leftover worktop, built up previously damaged walls and cased in the exposed pipes. As well as fitting the kitchen, he tiled it and laid flooring through the kitchen and conservatory, all the way through to the hallway, also making a bespoke cupboard in our hallway. Always remained professional and we absolutely love the finished result!

Paul R. Poppleton, York

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Matt. He’s responsive, reliable, and definitely not afraid to put a shift in to help get the job done. In fact, I’d say he went over and above to help get us out of trouble a few times during our renovation project!

He’s knowledge and workmanship is first class, and his experienced advice definitely saved us time and money. He’s also invested in the best tools and equipment that allow him to just get on with the job at hand. 

Stock up on tea bags, he can drink it as fast as you can brew it

Hannah, York Centre

With seven years of studying architecture i know a good Joiner when i see one! Matt has been absolutely Amazing! He carved time out of his busy schedule to help us get a working kitchen, when others had let us down. He worked so hard to get things finished for us and his attention to detail was brilliant.

Such neat professional work that is hard to find these days. Turns up when he says he will and gets the job done with ease. Would not hesitate for a second to recommend him and have already recommended him to others! Will post pictures of the finished kitchen soon!

Gary And Kay Banks, Rainham, Essex

When we had a good idea of how we want wanted our new kitchen to look we invited Matt around to talk him through our plans. He listened to our requirements, chucked in some suggestions, some of which we took up. We went ahead and ordered units etc.

Once we accepted delivery both Matt and James arrived and worked solid for 3days. We left them whilst we went to work, no problems at all, we would return to see the progress. They worked late to reach a convenient point to leave, ready for the next day.

Their workmanship was amazing, we have had endless compliments to the standard of our kitchen; not only the way it has been fitted, but all the small touches and attention to detail which make it our bespoke kitchen.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Matt and James. Not only lovely gents, nothing was too much trouble, their skill is second to none, but more importantly they turned up when they said they would, they worked hard and smart, a real breath of fresh air!

Adrian Pearson, Leeds

We were recommended to use Matt to fit our kitchen, he did an amazing job , he is such a perfectionist! nothing was too much trouble , he even suggested some of his own ideas, which we were delighted with, we can truly recommend Matt, to anyone who wants piece of mind and who requires perfection. Matt will soon be starting at my sons house, fitting walk in wardrobes.

JEAN DRYSDALE, Bootham, York

Yorkshire Joinery and Development did the joinery work on our recent house renovation. They work efficiently and to high standard. They take a pride in what they do and give great attention to detail. Highly recommended.

Gillian Calvert Rawcliffe,York

Excellent workmanship and service. Matt restyled my bathroom into a wet room. He project managed and undertook the work in the agreed time to a very high standard at a price within my budget. Nothing was too much trouble. I can happily recommend him and would employ him again anytime. His only contract conditions were plenty of cups of tea which I was pleased to fulfil, no hardship at all.

Carolyn Wilkins, Leeds

After seeing the work Matt had done for my brother i had no hesitation in asking him to fit eleven solid oak internal doors , he did an excellent job and left the house spotless , no fuss no bother just great service. We were so impressed that i have asked him to do my new kitchen , thanks again Matt you took all the pressure out of having work done in your home .

Brenda Marshall , York

Matt fitted my Wickes kitchen for me while I took myself and dog away for the week, I didn’t fancy all the disruption. I know Matt worked late most evenings and I came home to a very professional job with no mess, what a clean and tidy worker he is! He even sealed some of the doors off to stop any dust and dirt drifting into other rooms. He is a very trustworthy, efficient and professional worker and even when I threw a few little extras in was only too happy to oblige even though it did mean extra hours in his very busy schedule. He really is a workaholic and he loves what he does which shows in his workmanship. I would not hesitate in recommending Matt to do a first class job.

Mrs Williamson, York

Matt fitted a utility room and downstairs loo (very small area to work)and we are really pleased with the work. We installed Wickes products which seem good quality and we’re pleased with. Fitted flooring and tiling in both. Both rooms look good and as we planned. Tidy, reliable and worked long hours to get the jobs done. Would recommend and use again.

Mike Quarton, York

Matt did a brilliant job laying our floor, boxing in the electrics and other general joinery jobs. He is a trustworthy tradesman that cracked on with the job in hand, we just left him the key and came back to a changing rooms moment :). I would definitely use him again and would very much recommend him to family and friends.

Neil Pilmoor, York

Matt did a brilliant job fitting our kitchen, I would recommend 100% him. He did everything we wanted and suggested idea’s we hadn’t even thought about. Very tidy (cleaning up each day). Great service from start to finish.

Jerri Ryder, Boston Spa

Excellent experience with MGW Joinery. Matt is punctual, trustworthy and very efficient; his level of workmanship is excellent, and at the end of the job leaves everything tidy and clean. I have no hesitation in recommending his work, and will definitely book him for further work in the future.
