The MHB guarantee

At MHB we have our very own guarantee in addition to the guarantees offered through NZCB.  The MHB Guarantee provides you with the following:

A tidy site and manageable home life

We guarantee that while we work on your home or building, we will keep the site tidy and manageable at the end of each day.  You will be able to proudly update your friends and family with progress photos without having to tidy up the site first.  We will make sure that your day-to-day life is interrupted as little as possible.  This is particularly important if you are living in your house while we are completing your alteration.

Partnering with the best quality subtrades

At MHB quality is important.  That’s why we guarantee that we will only partner with the best quality subtrades.  You can rest easy knowing that we have chosen to use subcontractors who have proven to provide high-quality work, reliability and affordability all in one.  We have worked alongside these subcontractors many times.

Following your budget

At MHB we will work alongside you to work within your budget from start to finish. 


We guarantee our team will provide clear communication with our clients at all times.  We are approachable and happy to discuss any concerns or answer any questions in person.  No question is a silly question to us.  We want our clients to feel involved, heard and understood throughout our working relationship.

Personal site meetings

If our clients wish, personal site meetings can be arranged to discuss any aspect of the build.  


At MHB, our team will arrive on site on time every day that they are scheduled to be there.  Reliability is an important value to us and something we can guarantee you will receive if you trust us with your building project.

A positive attitude on site

We guarantee that our team will arrive on site with a positive attitude.  We are a happy bunch with positive mindsets.  We like to have fun, enjoy a laugh and find that we are more productive when we are happy and driven doing what we love.   

Meet the MHB team

Meet Matt

Hi I’m Matt.  I am the owner and director of Matt Heath Builders Limited.   I have been building in Whakatane for around 18 years, and during that time have gained experience in many areas.  From fences and decks to renovating existing houses and building new ones.  I also have experience in light commercial work and earthquake strengthening. 

I completed my National Certificate in Carpentry through BCITO, and also hold my Level 4 Construction (Leading Hand) Certificate which I completed through Bay of Plenty Polytechnic in Tauranga. 

One of the areas of building that I have been working on a lot recently are alterations and extensions.   I find a great deal of satisfaction and enjoyment in getting stuck into a renovation, where I can restore something to a more modern and workable space for my clients, or make a family home more suitable for the family that is growing up in it.  That’s where my team and I can help you.  We will work with you to turn your beautiful home, full of potential, into your dream home.  Or by helping you to build your dream home from the very beginning.  Or perhaps you want an office space with a point of difference.  I’m your man!

I really enjoy creating that point of difference in the jobs that I do.  Whether it be making a feature of an exposed beam, creating a barn style door for an entrance way or anything else that my clients want to do to make their building project different to the rest.

When I’m not working, I am usually out and about with my family.  Rachel and I have three kids; Blake, Ivy and Jack.  Three very bright, very adventurous kids.  I enjoy fishing, hunting, CrossFit and mountain biking.  Basically, anything outdoors.  My other passion is my Harley.  I love to ride whenever I get a chance. 

Meet Rachel

Hi I’m Rachel.  I am Matt’s wife and the office administrator for our business.  I had a background of administration work, working for a well-known law firm as a Legal Executive in Whakatane, before becoming a full time stay at home mum to our three children.  

As our children have grown and become more independent, my role in our business has evolved.  I enjoy connecting with people and projects, and using my experience in office work to help grow our company.

When I’m not working or running around with Matt and the kids, you will find me in my garden, in my kitchen or at the gym.
