Van Matre construction is amazing! We have interviewed and used many contractors in the past – but none of them compare to Brady’s crew. He is the most professional contractor in the business. They popped the top on our house and the entire experience was great. Since then we have used Van Matre for all our of other contracting needs – which has been two additional projects on our house that were bigger than I wanted to take on (taking out an outside wall and hot tube enclosure, and installing a new fence and gates to replace one that was falling down).

The project is done on time and on budget. Brady is always there to check and make sure that the project is done the way you want it to be done, and will always make sure you are happy. For instance, in this last fence install – there were 3 posts that were poured that were not square with the rest of the fence as one of the crew had made a mistake. Brady didn’t try to hide it, but instead agreed that the posts were off, and had his crew jackhammer and remove the posts, then re-pour them so they were right. I’m not sure many contractors would have done that!

I can’t recommend Van Matre construction high enough!

I recently completed building a house with Van Matre Construction and I was very happy with every aspect of their performance over the 14 months it took to complete. The house was a spec house with lots of architectural details inside and out. During the bidding/pricing process he worked with our architect to improve the project with several important “value” suggestions. The project was bid out to several contractors and Van Matre was clearly the best value.

We entered into a fixed price contract during a period of escalating prices, and very tight availability of labor. The project was completed for that price. We did have several change orders, which were truly “changes”, those change orders were priced very fairly. I never got the feeling he was “sticking it to us” on the change orders; an experience I’ve had before.

Working with Brady and our Superintendent was very easy. They were very diligent, and followed through with questions very quickly. The quality of work was outstanding. All of the employees and sub-contractors were very professional and courteous. They kept a clean and neat job site. The few quality issues that came up were taken care of with no arguments or drama.

After the project was finished we did have a small punch list. The items were mostly small finish items that were quickly dealt with.

Overall would I hire Van Matre Construction again? In a heartbeat!! He made this challenging project fun and easy.

The house we built for this client was recently featured in the online magazine. You can access the article here: custom home on the prairie.

I was thrilled with the level of knowledge and professionalism. Work was completed in a timely manner, and when I made changes, I understood the impact they would have on the project budget. A wonderful experience.

We have worked with Brady and his talented crew on two remodel projects and are planning for a third early next year. They have delivered on time and on budget. We have had the good fortune to have Tim Moore as the project lead. He is conscientious and stays in communication through all aspects of the project. I have recommended Van Matre Construction to friends and will continue to do so.

I highly recommend Brady Van Matre and Van Matre Construction for any level of construction or renovation/remodeling you may have in mind.

We first used Van Matre Construction to renovate a former bicycle/ski shop into our veterinary clinic. We got bids from other contractors for our renovation just to be thorough but we were the most impressed with Van Matre’s pricing and the level of detail outlined in their bid. We were so pleased with Van Matre’s job with our veterinary clinic, their subcontractors, and the fact they take genuine pride in the quality of the work they do, that a couple years later we also retained them to remodel the kitchen and a large portion of the living area in our home. We have been delighted with the process and the results of both these projects.

Our veterinary clinic, as well as the kitchen and living area of our home look amazing. We were absolutely delighted that the remodels stayed on schedule and within our budgets, especially since both renovation/remodels took demolition down to the studs and put it all back together again with new plumbing, electrical, etc. We really appreciated how Van Matre worked with us along the way to incorporate changes we wanted and how hard they worked towards keeping these projects on schedule and ‘WITHIN OUR BUDGET’.

Project Date: June 2009
Project Price: more than $100,000
Brady Van Matre and his team at Van Matre Construction built a custom house for our family in 2008 and 2009. The team did an excellent job keeping the project on schedule. Staying focused on attention to minor details makes the house very functional and livable. Brady is always welcome to show our home to prospective clients. We highly recommend Van Matre Construction for custom home construction or a high end remodel.
