    "My husband and I have just completed a major refurbishment in Parnell Auckland. I discovered Chris the owner of Mathews plumbing via no cowboys. What a wonderful blessing. We are newbies in New Zealand and I am eternally grateful for his guidance and advice. He assisted me in putting together a wonderful team of tradies He and his team have replumbed 2 bathrooms a cloakroom kitchen and laundry. His workmanship is excellent and he is totally reliable. I have undertaken many building projects in the past so can confidently say that I would not hesitate to recommend Chris to anyone who might be looking to build or renovate."

    "Extremely knowledgable and professional in all the work he has done for us both after hours and to deadlines required by the builder. Extremely reliable and genuine nice guy, recently installed the gas set up for our kitchen stove and plumbed our new kitchen, bathroom along with water filter system and some drainage. I have recommended him to friends for thier bathroom/kitchen renovation also."

    "Found Chris through no cowboys and am so glad that I did. He replaced our old gas hot water cylinder with a new gas hot water system. What I liked about Chris - he returned my call promptly, quoted promptly, arrived promptly, provided really good advice, communicated clearly, upgraded some of our pipes so that we could get the full benefit of the new hot water system, billed us as quoted.

    "Highly recommended! From the get-go Chris and his team were superb. Initial contact by text was answered promptly and an appointment made to appraise the job. We needed our existing bathroom and laundry refitted, which included chipboard flooring to be replaced in both rooms, all fittings replaced and a new hot water cylinder. Chris turned up for the initial meeting on time as agreed (as did everyone each of the five days of the job) offered great advice and sent his quote promptly. He works with a superb team of builders, electricians and shower installers, and managed the whole job for us without a hitch. Nothing was a problem! Aside from the superb result - with workmanship to a very high standard - communication was the key. Chris stayed in touch every day and answered each query in a timely fashion. We have no hesitation in recommending Matthews Plumbing."

    "Fantastic service and great result - Chris installed a new bathroom, toilet and laundry, along with switching our water cylinder to mains pressure, and was excellent. He also project managed and liaised with the builder, tiler and jib-stopper for the overall result. From the detail and care over the install to the patience and customer service, we always knew what was going on and he kept us up to date. Very professional and a great guy also - nothing was too much trouble and he provided good suggestions around what to do - highly recommended."

    "Chris installed a new kitchen waste disposal unit which I supplied myself. We had a few email exchanges over what replacement unit I was going to go for, and I found Chris very helpful and knowledgeable in that regard, replying promptly and suggesting the most cost-effective way to go, which I greatly appreciated. Turned up when he said he would and even called on day to confirm his arrival time. Installation was done in efficient and timely way, and Chris cleaned and tidied up when job finished. Really, really nice guy to deal with, very professional job and competitive quote. Finding a good tradesman can be a bit hit and miss. At almost 70 I have encountered a few cowboys over the years. Chris is not one of them - he is a real treasure and I highly recommend him."

    "Chris did a great job for us, replacing an old waste disposer - he was friendly, on-time and really helpful. We had a leak afterwards - he came along straightaway at no charge and was able to trace the leak to a split dishwasher pipe. He recommended an appliance repairer called Peter Lincoln, who also did a fantastic job, within a day or so. All happy, plumbing-wise, at our end - would definitely recommend Chris!"

    "Chris responded to our plumbing request, he came over, had a proper inspection and gave excellent advice. I appreciated his direct approach with his experience and knowledge evident by the way he explains the work needed. He conveyed that the job was straight forward for him. Due to the nature of the job he provided a verbal estimate. The job was completed a day quicker and the cost was significantly less than estimated. As my previous plumber has vanished, Matthews Plumbers are my permanent replacement. Very Good all round!"

    "We first dealt with Chris a couple of months back when he checked our aging Hot water Cylinder. His advice was it was still operating successfully, but to keep an eye on it due to it's age. He turned up on time, at short notice and at no point tried to convince us it needed replacing (which he could have). We decided this month to replace it completely anyway, for peace of mind. Chris arranged supply, delivery and installation of the cylinder and did a great job, in the time he said it would take, and at the price quoted. "Will Trade Again"."

He arrived within 15 minutes, glued the pipe to stop any more damage and was back the next day with a new part and fixed it up in a jiffy. He turned a nightmare into a quick and easy fix! He charged less than we thought the job would cost and he was super friendly while doing it! Thanks heaps Chris! :D "

Could not recommend him highly enough - we will certainly give him a call whenever we need anything else done!"

    "I hired Chris to do a simple job which required CC permit. He supplied quote and confirmed that he is registered plumber and authorized to sign permits. Job took 2-3 times longer than initially promised. I receive lots of excuses but wasted few weeks. When job was completed Chris asked for much more money when we agreed and blackmailed me that he will not give me his signature when I refused to pay. Quote was exceeded more than 30% Quality of his job was acceptable but some cheap chinese plumber did way better job for me for twice less cost. I believe he lacks some tools as he made twice biger holes in the wall than needed. He is not authrised to sign permits and it took lots of time and nerves to get this job permitted. Overall experience is very bad and I wouldn\'t recommend Chris to anybody."
    chris matthews responded:
    "i just wish if people were unhappy they would put the truth down .. if you saw my van it doesnt lack tools at all .. bottom line council mucked around as per usual and customer got upset with me . i said a verbal quote of 1000 and it was 1100 bout 10 percent .. everyone exagerates when they are angry "

    "I am not at all happy with the job Chris did for me. I called him out to look at a pipe under my bath which was blocking up. Once he\'d completed the job, I had to call him back to move the pipe back into its original position as he left it sticking out around foot from the basement wall. When he pulled out the old pipe he broke the concrete surrounding the grid it was attached to on the other side of the wall. The grid has since blocked up and for the first time in the sixteen I have been living in this house, the water flowed back into the basement instead of out into the garden as it was designed to do because of the breaks in the concrete he created. He also fitted the new pipe so that it is hanging so far down into the grid that it\'s almost impossible to get an implement down into it to clear it. I\'m very unhappy with his workmanship and won\'t have him back to repair the new plumbing faults he\'s created. I chose him off the internet because he belonged to No Cowboys and had good ratings. However, he\'s turned out to be just the opposite."
    chris matthews responded:
    "This pipe was under the house and the customer was right there all they had to say was could you please put it against the wall like the last one i was trying to save one fitting for the customer and did not see it as a issue . The old pipe was galv and as kathys husband pointed out the gulley was already cracked so i used a epoxy mortar which you can mould smooth for a awesome finish ...I put all the original concrete back together and joined it with the epoxy so nothing went down the gulley trap at all ..The drainage pipes are eartheware and will have tree roots protruding somewhere along the line or there would have being a fatty build up in the gulley causing the blockage .. purely coincendental..the pipe is easily accesseble and i would have no problem removing the gulley grate and getting my drainunblocking tool in..there are no plumbing faults i have created i simply cut out a galv pipe and replaced with p.v.c . theres nothing that can go wrong and i also clipped and strapped the pipe. p.s i came back at no extra charge to move the pipe exactly where they wanted it "

    "I needed urgent work done on our shower & toilet, so I texted Chris asking for a quote, he called me straight back and told me he could be there in 2 hours. He arrived on time, was great to deal with, and explained exactly what he was doing each step of the way. He fixed our shower catcher that had slipped under the house, securing it tightly back into position, he then re-siliconed the bracket to the shower tray, unblocked the pipe, & made sure it drained properly. While under the house he checked for leaks from the bath, then fixed our toilet which was running and has never worked on half flush. He did all this within the hour for a good price. I\'m very happy and would recommend Chris to any mates looking for a new plumber."

    "Chris did all the plumbing on my new Pt Chev townhouse - from the mud through to the gutters. He recommended 1st class fittings, the wet bathroom with two showers works great. Other trades he recommended were excellent also. I have used him on all my properties except the Wellington one as to travel time from Auckland but have even considered it as I know I wouldn\'t have to check the job afterward. For a new build planned in Wellington I will be at least consulting with him for advice. I don\'t mind a call on 0211076455 if you want a verbal reference - or would like to view his work.- Pete"

    "Chris was asked to replace a leaking hot water cylinder. He asked the size I wanted and then replaced it. It was dripping at the bottom and he had to come back and fix it. The water pressure was really low and when we had another plumber check on it, we were told Chris had replaced the high pressure cylinder with a low pressure cylinder. When we asked Chris about this, he maintained that he had discussed it with me and I had chosen to go with low pressure. This is totally untrue. He never discussed it with me. Having spent $1,900 on it, I am faced with another bill to correct his errors. i would not recommend him; he is not reliable or truthful."

    "I replaced a low pressure hot water cylinder with a low pressure cylinder and the feltonmix mixing valves will tell you that st away as they are fmu which stands for feltonmix unequal pressure . The leak on the bottom was her tap which i tried to tighten the gland on and informed her that i may need to come back to replace it which i did at no extra cost.I also came back and put a new feltonmix mixer head and plate on designer series to give the tenants a better shower which it did and cleaned the filters out on the inlets to the mixers . I turned up to the job on time and have come back twice and the customer was always informed but did not understand properly regards chris . Matthews Plumbing LTD"

    "Chris is very good guy. he came to my place around 8:00 to fix a burst pipe underneath a sink in bathroom. When he was fixing the pipe he told me that this pipe needs to be changed when you are renovating your bathroom. After one week the same pipe burst again. and first he was reluctant to accept that it was the same pipe. but then he came and fixed the pipe without any charge following day. that Same pipe burst again today....and now he is saying that the whole pipe system needs to be changed and it will cost us $1000. i don\'t understand this."

    " As a builder, I expect a high standard of workmanship as well as a professional attitude from my contractors. Chris delivered. He arrived on time, did the job to a high standard and the site was left clean & tidy. Arguably the best service & price I've had from a plumber in some time. Quotes are prompt & invoices well documented. I won't use any other plumber. Shaun Andrew, SH Andrew - Builder."

    "Was supplied a verbal quote of a couple of hours for labour then halfway through the job received a labour invoice 4 times higher than was discussed, had to call him back twice to come repair leaks, got a 2nd opinion on his work, changes he suggested was not only illegal but now have to be redone, very disappointing, lesson learned is never get him to do work without written quote."
    chris matthews responded:
    "i did not supply a verbal quote of 2hrs i said its going to take alot longer than 2 hrs to redo all his work and start again .the customer had attempted to do his own plumbing. my original estimate was 4times what this customer is claiming was my estimate . i put the pipes where the customer had asked and was not given any plans as i found out later there was no council consent . my work does not have to be redone and if it did i would do it at no extra costing.lesson learned get a contract drawn up with customers as they dont like to pay there bills nowadays "

    "First class service for a serious situation - blocked sewage line. Chris couldn't complete the job but did arrange for for another company to finish the job and didn't charge for time away from the job trying to find the necessary hardware. Chris provided a fully detailed invoice as well, and when contacted gave good advice as to where to go next re alleviating a return of the problem. We won't be looking for another pumber for any future work!!!"

    "Called Chris and he came straight out the same day to evaluate our request. Our second toilet was installed within 4.5 hrs and other work under the house was undertaken. Chris did a much better job than the other plumbers we have had who in my opinion were the true cowboys and could talk the talk but not walk the walk. I would recommend Chris to other people who want their plumbing job done with pride and excellence."
