A bit about Martin
Martin services in:
Marty is your Healthy Home Consultant South Canterbury. For the last few years Marty has been installing log fires in homes all over the region, helping to rebuild Christchurch in the process. Marty is a real people person, and takes great pride in all work undertaken. He grew up in Dunedin and moved to Christchurch after meeting his partner, Val, and enjoys a round of golf in his downtime.
Marty is passionate about improving the lives and health of his customer’s homes.
Marty and his team can help you with ventilation, attic stairs and of course our world leading, Solatube Daylighting System. Get in touch today to book your free in-home consultation and find out how Marty can improve the health of your home!
Martin can help you solve:
Unhealthy and damp air
Stale, damp air is the enemy of a healthy home. Damp air takes longer to heat because the air need to be dried before it can be heated. Moist air can also cause respiratory problems, especially for asthma and allergy sufferers
Ventilation fans extract the damp, stale air and replace it with fresh clean air from outside. These fans are supremely quiet and are specifically designed to be left on all the time. Because they are energy efficient, you won't notice them either by sound or on your electricity bill.
Not every room in our house has access to enough natural light, whether because they are internal rooms, or because they were designed for modesty and therefore have small windows (like bathrooms). This means these rooms can't be used without artificial light which doesn't feel natural during the day
Solatube is the most advanced daylighting system in the world. They have been meticulously designed to capture light from your roof and deliver it into rooms you haven't had natural light in before.
If you're like most Kiwis, your hallway cupboards and garage will be full of stuff – most of which you don't use. Things like Christmas decorations, luggage and mementos that you keep but never look at. This clutters up our homes and takes up space which we are never able to get tidy
Attic stairs are an elegant way to hide away important items that you want to keep but rarely use. They give you access to unused storage space which is sitting right above your head, right now. In your roof.
Here's what Martin's customers have to say about him
Martin from Hometech came to install a Solatube into our house, from the time he phoned to make the appointment until he finished the job he was on time, efficient and courteous with his work, we are so pleased with the end result it has made a huge difference to our entryway, he even made time to clean an existing Solatube we already had in place. Thanks for your service and professionalism, we would thoroughly recommend Martin in the future.
Excellent service from Marty. Site left tidy upon completion.
Noel Jones, Burnside

Thank you for a great service & job well done.
Andrew & Sandra McDougall
Thank you very much for the terrific job you did here installing the skylight. The tradesman was completely professional, clean and tidy. He put down a drop cloth which you don't always see so he has a very good work ethic. The hallway was completely dark so it's made an amazing difference. In fact, I am doing renovations in the dining area and I would like you to call in to discuss putting another skylight in the entrance.
Am loving the added light in what was otherwise a shady area of the kitchen & hallway. Fast, friendly service with added honest advice - would highly recommend Martin Smythe. Thanks for the wonderful service & product.
Friendly, helpful, speedy and efficient. From the first phone call to installation - we cannot find fault. Martin and his team are professional and a pleasure to deal with. We are so happy with the Solatube Daylighting System. Light now floods our once dark and gloomy hallway. For the first few days we kept trying to switch off the light - but it was natural sunlight. We unreservedly recommend Martin and Hometech Canterbury.
