North Eastern Branch


Ron Matz, owner of the North Eastern branch of Outside Concepts.

My name is Ron Matz, owner of the North Eastern branch of Outside Concepts. My branch covers all northern and eastern suburbs of Melbourne, including Kew in the inner east, Templestowe in the north, Ferntree Gully in the outer east and all suburbs surrounding and in between.

I’ve worked in the building and manufacturing industry for many years. Before I joined Outside Concepts, I worked in a variety of roles, predominantly in management positions. But I love the practical side of the Outside Concepts business, particularly designing structures for clients and picking up the tools and building at every opportunity. That’s what gives me the greatest satisfaction in my job.

I take great pleasure in working with my clients to deliver the project they have dreamt about, whether it’s a simple deck or flat-roofed carport, or a more complex structure such as a second-storey deck or fire shelter (yes, I’ve even built one of those!). Being able to do this from start to finish and seeing the happiness on people’s faces keeps driving me every day.

Carports, patios, pergolas, verandahs and decks are our bread and butter and my approach to all of them is quite simple – I look at each job as if I was building the structure for myself and had to use it every day. That’s why quality workmanship, quality materials, good project management and a focus on customer satisfaction are so important to me. Add in Outside Concept’s 10-year structural warranty, and it’s easy to see why we’re the best choice for your next outside structure project.

One of the benefits of dealing with Outside Concepts as a national franchise business, is that your local branch representative is the owner of that business. In my business there are no salesmen and no middlemen to pass the buck to—it’s simply in my interest to provide the best possible customer service and a quality job, on time and within budget.

Please get in contact with me to discuss your next outdoor project. You supply the dream; I’ll make it a reality.


Reasons why I chose Outside Concepts: You were professional and on time to do the quote, you kept your word and gave a quote within a reasonable timeframe with a drawing and specs. Provided a contract. The quote was fair and reasonable. The materials you ordered were as specified. You dug out the holes to the old spec of the previous builders ensuring consistency that the posts would not move considering the steep slope of the land. The workmanship of the repair was first class. The site was cleaned. Provided a tax invoice.

Thank you for working with me on the recent project. The finished verandah is superb and testament to your project management skills. I was impressed with the quality of the workmanship and hope to engage your company again in any future projects.

I am writing to recommend the services of Outside Concepts Western. The job requirement was to replace polycarb sheets on our verandah and a outdoor wall construction. We dealt with Jaan McKenzie and his staff. They did an excellent job, were always punctual, and offered the most competitive rates in town. We found Jaan to be very polite and he always kept us up to date with orders of material and times of when were to expect his arrival. We were completely satisfied. We will contact them again for any future work that is needed. They have been very reasonably priced, and have done exactly what we’ve asked of them. I’m happy to recommend the services of Outside Concepts.

I am writing to say what a pleasure it was dealing with you, you were always reliable and nothing was too much trouble. Our finished, customised carport is everything we wanted and would like to thank the builder, his attention to detail and workmanship was excellent. I will be recommending Outside Concepts to my friends. Thank you for a job really well done from plans to completion.
