Company Profile

My name is Matt Chivers, I have been working in this Industry since1982 and set up my business in 1987. I have worked in many different areas including large sites, refurbishments, conversions, commercial, medical and domestic - from small one off jobs to large contracts.
My main area is currently in domestic situations where I am extremely aware for the need to be clean, tidy and considerate to my customers and respecting your home environment. I also continue to carry out work in all areas.

I have for many years carried out work in a large London hospital, where a considerate and flexible approach is vital.
I have City and Guilds qualifications in Painting and Decorating & Carpentry, ONC and HNC in Building Studies, I also work for my local FE college as an NVQ Assessor, assisting apprentices to gain qualifications in Decorating and Carpentry. 
If other tradespeople are required I will only recommend someone I know and have worked with for many years.
I cover all areas of East and West Sussex and parts of Hampshire and Surrey

Leading up to Christmas I have been spending more hours in my role as an Assessor for the local college. My webpage therefore does not show any recent feedback from customers. However I am now able to concentrate more on offering the services as detailed above. Please note I am not VAT registered. 

I offer free estimates and friendly advice, so whatever your requirements please do not hesitate to contact me on 07831728993, 01903 539343 or email - charliechivers1@yahoo.co.uk

I look forward to hearing from you

Redecoration of small room into a new nursery.
Matt has attended our home many times in the last 2 years. Once again, we gave him a key to access the house as we were both at work. The redecoration involved painting the ceiling and existing wood work and wall papering the walls. We asked Matt to plaster over a redundant air vent and fill some cracks around the window frame. He was also happy to touch up some minor marks on the walls of the stairs and landing. Matt has great attention to detail and is a bit of a perfectionist. We have always been delighted with his work. You will never find a more reliable, polite and professional tradesman.

Coving, decoration of bedroom
Mr Chivers is a perfectionist, very hard working, tidy and polite! I would recommend him to anyone. Our room to be decorated had to have the walls made good as they were in a very poor state, total re paint and new coving put up. Once completed the room soon to be a nursery looks great and my husband and I are really pleased with it.

Painting and wallpapering of lounge.
The work is done really well, the curtain rails were taken off so the wallpapering could be done and he put them back on afterwards. The painting of ceiling, coving and woodwork is excellent.

Redecoration of hallway and landing.
Matt has now attended on four separate occasions over the last 18 months and has already completed the master bedroom, cloak room, dining room, lounge and kitchen. He is a thorough professional, friendly, reliable and completely trustworthy. On this occasion, my wife and I were both working and I had no hesitation in giving him a key to let himself in. I had also asked him if this work could be completed before Christmas. Even though he was extremely busy (working 7 days a week), he still managed fit us in and once again we are delighted with his work. Thank you Matt.
