Matt did an excellent job throughout the entire process, from the original estimate to the completed installation. We were looking to get custom bookcases installed on both sides of the fireplace. His attention to detail and creative problem solving were evident even during the time he spent making measurements and working on the estimate for the project. He would identify and point out potential problems and then help brainstorm and come up with a solution. The final result was exactly what we were looking for and we couldn’t be happier.
Chad M.
Matt did an amazing job on replacing a gate for us. He actually made a suggestion for us to take our project in a different direction which gave us a much superior product for the same price. His attention to detail is going to provide us with a product that is going to last us a very long time. We will definitely be using Matt Holden for future projects.
