If you are looking for quality work made to your custom needs, then I definitely recommend Matthews Construction. Amilcar and Hector did an excellent job creating custom railing for our basement stairs (to prevent a toddler from falling), replacing our gutters, and installing new windows (with custom trim to fit the trim of other windows in the house). The craftsmanship of the stair rails is metic...

We hired Brian to remodel our main floor. We wanted to take it from "college dorm" style to sophisticated and contemporary. The kitchen was completely remodeled, including a few changes to the layout. Additionally, a wall was removed, the powder room was remodeled, and our staircase was transformed to an amazing focal piece. We worked with Brian for months before the construction began and we are ...

I was impressed. The types of things I needed doing were so different, I wasn't sure each one would be done well, but they all were done extremely well and in a timely manner. The bulging wall required taking it down to the studs, putting in new drywall to level it with the wall below it, and then painting it. The crew worked hard and they knew what they were doing. I am pleased with the results.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
variety of projects including: repairing a bulging basement wall; replacing missing drywall in basement ceiling; replacing cracked boards in the attic floor; shoring up a staircase stringer; and digging out the bottom of the driveway and putting asphalt down to level it out.

Overall experience was so so. Work wise they are fine overall but from communication and time commitment they experience was not good. I was quoted 3 - 4 weeks for work and they took like 12 weeks to do, primarily because they took forever to apply for permit. So had dust full basement sitting there for almost 3-4 weeks before they restarted. Also had to keep an eye on what their guys were doing a...

And plumbing as all do. 2ndly He added 6 weeks or so of extras.3rdly,my architect got the permit in a timely manner. 4thly, we kept the worksite as clean as possible. How does he expect us to finish in the same time period when adding alot of extras. This electrical issue is the 1st time I'm hearing about it ...

OK. This was an unusual and difficult project for several reasons. Had much difficulty and stress just finding a contractor who was willing to tackle the problem. Brian took the job as a challenge and delivered what he promised. The logistics, the atrocious weather and the unexpected all had to dealt with. Other than minor communications issues the job went as well as could be expected. I am convi...

I don't feel that this company respects their customers' time. I had an appointment scheduled with Brian on a Tuesday evening. I texted to confirm that afternoon and received a phone call from his partner to find out that Brian went out of town and did not find anyone to cover our appointment. I had to set up a second time to meet with his partner, on Friday morning. I got a text early on Friday m...
