5.0 Geoffrey Y. Ithaca, NY

Fern Wood Property Management, LLC renovated my front porch. Matt did an excellent job. At our first meeting to discuss the project, Matt made thoughtful and insightful suggestions to improve the quality of the renovation. I am glad that I embraced Mattâ s suggestions. I applaud Mattâ s commitment to delivering a quality renovation at an affordable price in a timely manner. Matt came when he said he would, and he created a beautiful renovation that will withstand the test of time.

Matt came when he said he would. He was honest, didnâ t try to drive prices up as others have done in the past. He fixed our porch quickly. Matt was a pleasure to work with. We will be hiring him again!

5.0 Amolak S. Ithaca, NY

I got a deck built and truly happy with the final product. They were absolutely professional and very friendly at the same time. They understood the requirements and delivered it right within the timeframe. I have already recommended them to a friend of mine and met the expectations again.

We high recommend Matt English for your projects. He gave us an excellent price to repair an old farmhouse porch, not even knowing what was underneath as it was hidden by siding. His estimate was right on. He not only repaired the porch stability and leveled it, he also was very careful of our (new) roof overhang and our desire to retain the "old farmhouse" look. He then power washed the porch and steps, and added a handrail. Much to our surprise, the old grey boards were paint covered which he got off. The porch wood now looks like fresh aged wood, the cement steps are actually white with lovely colored pebbles in them. The entire project was a huge success. The porch is safe and beautiful. Matt was right on schedule, careful of safety and clean-up, and moved so fast. Do not hesitate to contact him to discuss your projects. He's a fun fellow and amazing in his skills and abilities. He listens carefully to what you need and want.

5.0 Jamie R. Homer, NY

Matt built the deck in such a great time frame he was efficient and polite and communicative. Matt was great with the budget I had in mind and I am beyond impressed with the quality of his work. I would recommend the company to anyone looking for a deck and am so very happy with the ease of the experience and result of the deck.

5.0 Phil G. Ithaca, NY

We hired Matt initially for end of year yard cleanup. One thing led to another, and he ended up taking care of many different things for us! He broke down a walnut and an oak tree into firewood, built us a wood shed, built an amazing tree fort, dug a french drain and laid a new walkway, etc... etc... Matt did fantastic work, came up with great ideas, and delivered as promised. He is very professional, pleasant and trustworthy. We have had him come back for more projects several times, and will be calling him again as new projects come up!

5.0 Steve W. Cortland, NY

He was very professional

5.0 Wendy V. Cortland, NY

Matt was pleasant to work with and did an excellent job trimming my shrubbery and trees. He also spread mulch and edged my gardens for Spring. He did the work within the time frame we agreed upon and may be doing some additional odd jobs for me when time allows. Thank you for help Matt.

5.0 Michelle L. Cortland, NY

I was very happy with the work Matt did for me I will absolutely hire him again
