Building Process

At Matson Construction, we understand that choosing a contractor is a big decision and one that should not be taken lightly. It is important to hire a licensed and insured builder that plans and accounts for everything before starting work. Planning and communication is the key to any successful construction project. That is why we strive to familiarize our customers with the building process, and be in touch with their needs through every phase. From designing and selecting materials to understanding how your finished product functions, Matson Construction will be there to guide you in the right direction. We never begin work without all design details being agreed upon, which ensures a smooth production and timely completion of your project.

What to expect

Our process is simple, but detailed. We’d like to review our process with you, so you’ll know what to expect when working with us.

Step 1: Estimating and Consultation

We begin with a free on site consultation to discuss your ideas and gather information to begin a rough design of your project. We will also discuss your budget, proposed timeline, and whether building permits will be needed for the work we will be performing. Based on this information, we will be able to give you a rough estimate of costs associated with your project.

Step 2: Design and Review

During the design phase of your project, we will visit your home to take measurements, verify details and draw plans for the modifications to your home. We’ll figure out the placement of walls, cabinets, plumbing and light fixtures and everything else we’ll need in order to draw a set of plans for your project.

Step 3: Final Budget and Selections

Before we start building, we’ll need to select the materials for your project. These selections include flooring, cabinets, plumbing and light fixtures, trim, hardware, and more. Once these items have been selected, we’ll be able to figure out the total price of your project and sign a contract.

Step 4: Construction

After signing the contract, we’ll be ready to start construction on your project. Throughout the construction phase, we encourage customer input and feedback on our progress. We consider this a critical part of the process, as it is a goal to make sure that we are meeting your expectations and keeping you updated on the schedule every step of the way.

Step 5: Enjoy your new space

Once the project is nearing completion, we’ll meet to prepare a final completion list, noting any outstanding items and including any areas that need extra attention before you accept the job as complete. Once the list has been completed, we’ll turn the space over to you to enjoy for life!
