Client Testimonals

My husband and I bought a Matt Powers home in December of 2014 and we couldn't be more happy with it and the Matt Powers team. As time passes we constantly find ourselves saying how thoughtful and intelligent of a builder Matt Powers is. My husband and I looked for homes for months and happen to find this home based on a few construction pictures. Those pictures demonstrated quality that we hadn't seen in other homes and sure enough when we walked in it the first time, not only was it so beautiful and custom, but it was sturdy and built with so much thought and care. We continue to comment on this all of the time as we live in it. This very thoughtful design has led us to enjoy an energy efficiency in our home that we didn't know we would have. Our energy bills are significantly cheaper than what we paid in a home nearly 1/4 the size. Finally, working with Matt has been a pleasure because he is a genuinely kind person. The relationship continues well after buying a home. He makes himself available to questions and we have consulted him on other ideas which is a great thing because we love spending time with him! We could not recommend Matt Powers and his team more highly!

After deciding to build our dream home, we chose Matt and Dewey from several recommendations and it turned out to be the perfect decision for us!! Their attention to detail, integrity, dependability and quality subcontractors resulted in a home that has exceeded our expectations tenfold! Three years later, we continue to rely on their expertise and respect the valued personal relationship we have built with them.

It was an absolute pleasure working with Matt Powers and his team in building our dream home. Matt made sure the partnership and collaboration was outstanding throughout the entire process. Matt and his team even made the process fun; the way it should be. The guidance they provided consistently enabled us to arrive at the best solutions in what we were hoping to achieve in our new home. We are truly amazed at the final results. Admittedly, our expectations were very high going into this project and those expectations have, without a doubt, been exceeded. Matt and his team have demonstrated the perfect balance between ensuring a disciplined process that keeps things on track and maintaining a collaborative environment where there is a free exchange of ideas.

Now that we have been in our beautiful, new home for several months, Nancy and I want to take the time to thank you and Dewey for the excellent product. Our experience with your company was a real joy, and this is the fifth house we have built! Dewey, especially, was a real pleasure to work with - quick and friendly in his response to any inquiry or concern. Nancy and I are particularly pleased with the way in which your company worked with, and coordinated with, our designer, Jane Page Design Group.

We have had several groups of varying sizes at our home, and each has given “glowing” compliments on our home. And that makes us feel really good - and that is probably the best testimony in that we feel really good about our home.

It was a pleasure building our home with Olympia Builders; we worked closely with the whole team on every decision. I really trust their integrity and honesty. I appreciate the access and help they offered in all phases of our decision making.

They accompanied me to the granite yards, brick yards, plumbing fixtures, etc. to answer questions I may have had as I made our selections. That was invaluable.

We felt confident in our decision-making, knowing that their expertise would guide us in the right direction. On several occasions, without our even asking them to, they brought crews back in to redo items that weren't completed perfectly. Their standard of excellence has helped us create a beautiful home.

We just wanted to thank the team at Matt Powers Custom Homes & Renovations for helping us navigate our unexpected renovation. In April 2009, our whole house flooded. After examining our options, we decided the best thing to do would be use this as an opportunity to completely renovate the house and in the process upgrade our 1960s house to a more modern and more energy efficient home. After interviewing a few companies, we settled on Matt Powers Builders because we felt comfortable with the team, particularly Dewey Hennessee who served as the lead contractor.

They assisted us in every phase of the project, from layout and design to landscaping and "green building" certification. During construction, we met with Dewey frequently to get status updates, make decisions and develop a schedule. No question of ours was too off the wall for Dewey. He took time to answer our questions and made sure that we understood the process at every step. In a tough spot, he was a real life-saver.

In the end we added a new master bath, remodeled the kitchen, moved several walls and redesigned the drainage on the lot. Despite never having done a certified green home before, they worked with an energy auditor to complete the requirements for a NAHB certification. As a result, our thoroughly new home was a awarded an Emerald level certification for renovations from the NAHB, the first of its kind in Harris county.

Matt Powers Custom Homes and Renovations has our highest recommendation! Matt is knowledgeable, thorough and professional. His expertise and reputation as a custom homebuilder were evident in each step of our renovation. Matt was able to incorporate structural planning, practical forethought and the latest advances to achieve our desired kitchen and living space.

Being able to communicate with a contractor was a major factor in our decision. Matt and Lena, our project manager, helped us to prepare for each step of our renovation. During the project they provided ongoing updates, onsite supervision, were available if any questions arose. Our renovation was completed on time and within budget.

The outstanding quality of workmanship was evident in the subcontractors Matt Powers chose. Each one of his subcontractors was polite, professional, and addressed any question or concern we may have had. They completed their jobs as if they were working in their own homes. We felt like our family and home were safe and we were able to continue with our activities with minimal interruption.

There is no doubt that we will be contacting Matt Powers for the next phase of our renovation.

We are very pleased with the end result. Our master bathroom is warm and inviting due to the quality work that was provided by MPCH. Matt gave great suggestions that improved the quality of work without adding burdensome costs. He is a builder who pays attention to the slightest details!

The projected budget was right on target. The contractors laid down tarps, taped areas thoroughly, and were careful to treat our home with respect. MPCH's renovations project manager was helpful and communicated frequently through phone calls, e-mails, and a weekly schedule update. The thoughtful and patient attention to detail was much appreciated! We recommend MPCH to do your home building or renovation!

Terry & Barbara Cargill

As you know, we were extremely pleased - thrilled - with both of our remodels! The contractors you use are so professional and show so much respect for the home as they work on the project. You, Lena, are so helpful and conscientious! We couldn't have done the remodels without your help! We would highly recommend Matt Powers Custom Homes & Renovations to anyone who is contemplating a renovation.

You can use us as a reference and have anyone who is considering using you to give us a call.

Matt Powers Custom Homes and Renovations renovated our home after it was rendered uninhabitable by Hurricane Ike. During this very stressful time for our family, Dewey Hennessee and Matt Powers worked with integrity, respect, honesty and responsiveness to rebuild our home. We trust both of them and would gladly hire them again.
