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. Tom Derzypolski
Tharpe Construction & Remodeling will always be the construction company we use. Mat is very knowledgeable and provided a lot of insight in designing my family's pavilion. We had an issue with the county regarding runoff during the permitting phase of construction, and he communicated often with the inspectors and kept us apprised of the situation. He also made sure that we were well informed on the workmen's schedules during the building process. Mat Tharpe is very thorough, the job site was kept clean, and the completion of the project was earlier than stated. He kept within the proposed budget, and we absolutely love the finished project!!
