Our story begins with an opportunity…

Having grown up around the building industry David Humphreys (owner builder) made the natural progression into carpentry over 15 years ago. Becoming the 3rd generation tradesman in his family.  David spent the 4 years of his apprenticeship working on multiple construction sites getting experience and knowledge on domestic, industrial and commercial sites.

Once a tradesman David decided to specialise in domestic building as this offered the widest scope of works. Domestic building allowed David to challenge his skills and achieve quality results on new and ever expanding jobs. Domestic building also provides a diversity of work allowing for new and different experiences.

The natural progression soon meant that David created his own carpentry business ‘Mates Rates Carpentry’. Mates Rates Carpentry was the platform to build a solid name for being committed to providing quality work and reliable service.

David is always keen to gain further skill in his trade. Continuing further education and undertaking his builders licence, Mates Rates Carpentry soon became Mates Rates Building.

Since Mates Rates Building commences operations thanks to happy customers and many word of mouth referrals it has continued to grow each year with more staff and larger jobs yet never compromising on quality as we maintain this has been our key to continued success.

Professionalism from start to finish. It’s all in the preparation.
