Tharpe Construction

“We’ve always thought the best qualities in a contractor would be good communication, responsiveness, accommodating, responsible, and attention to detail. Mat was all of those things and more. He treated our project like he was building his own house and always did everything he could to make sure we were informed and happy with the outcome – we felt like a priority. He stayed on schedule and communicated with us throughout the construction process – from design to punch list.”

“Tharpe Construction & Remodeling exceeded our expectations in constructing an office environment that is both rich in portraying our company philosophy and personality, while still maintaining a functional and efficient workspace. As someone who creates a brand through a client’s story for a living, it’s important that our office space fosters a creative and collaborative atmosphere for our crew. Mat and his team did just that. We left all of the design plans up to his team, and were thrilled with the final result. His professionalism and dedicated work ethic leads me to recommend Tharpe Construction to anyone constructing a commercial project or seeking a redesign.”
