Working with Matt Powers is easy! Matt and his team are incredibly organized, thorough and responsive! Their high attention to detail result in beautiful, quality homes. They adhere to schedules and keep everyone in the loop on timelines so there are no last-minute requests for selections. As a designer, this is very important. Their budgets are realistic and their craftsmanship is top of the line! I recommend Matt Powers Custom Homes to anyone looking for a contractor for their dream home!

Theresa & James Wykowski

Their team were the project managers for our newly bought home through Laura Powers (who was excellent) after our home flooded in Harvey. They were always professional sharing their expertise and knowledge. They hire reliable, quality workers. Being sensitive to the history of our former lost home and possessions, they were compassionate and showed this through the high quality of work in our new home which they always checked with their high standards. They were responsive to our calls which meant a great deal to us and were respectful of our schedule. We also appreciated Matt Powers suggestion on painting the den white! They put us in touch with a professional decorator, Joani Scaff who was most helpful! They made this job as worry free as possible and we are grateful.

Tom Forestier

Matt Powers and his team build beautiful homes with all the right amenities. They pay attention to the little things and seem to give a lot of thought to how the home will be used by its residents on a day to day basis. Matt is enjoyable to work with and helped put us at ease as we made one of the most important decisions ever.

Jovita Hernandez

Thank you Matt for the excellent service provided by your company. I was told you guys were top-notch and that’s exactly the kind of service I experienced! The team came to our rescue recently when my Client and I needed a reputable builder’s professional opinion. My Client was told that their house had no weather barrier and that it would be a $20K job. Your team made themselves available that same morning we were on the phone- I had never met them or Matt before. They were simply recommended to me. Really, it was a Godsend! They provided us with a solution and their crew of workers, professionalism, and best of all their time and kindness. Thank you and God bless!

Matt Powers Custom Homes built our 10,000+ home and we could not be any happier with the result. The project manager Jeff was always calm and responsive. The quality of the sub-contractors was excellent. The designer Bobby had superb taste and helped me immensely with design issues. The whole experience was smooth and easy. I would highly recommend Matt Powers Custom Homes.

Leslie Kottwitz

It was an absolute pleasure working with Your team at Matt Powers Custom Homes in building my dream home. They were with me throughout the entire planning phase with the architect, choosing the perfect lot for building, and there for me everyday tending to every detail throughout the building phase. During all the decision-making process, they were there with me every step of the way helping choose appliances, plumbing, granite, tile, wood floors, fireplaces, lighting, hardware, windows, doors, swimming pool and landscape design, etc. at all these vendor locations. Their knowledge, experience, and advice was extremely helpful to me throughout this entire process. Their network of vendors and sub-contractors are all wonderful to work with and very professional. We are very impressed with the amazing workmanship, high quality, and great attention to detail. Throughout the project, they managed every detail with such efficiency and kept the experience pleasant and stress-free. Anytime I had a question or concern, they were quickly available by phone, text, or email. They were always respectful, patient with all my many questions, straightforward, and listened to all my ideas and preferences. They were always willing to explain in detail each step of the process and would work to make my requests and design ideas a reality. Their team is always professional, friendly, honest, and very reliable. They had such a great positive attitude throughout the entire project. It actually made the experience very enjoyable and Fun for me!! They continue to be available to me anytime. They go above and beyond to make sure their clients are completely satisfied. I know that we can continue to count on their help and expertise in the years to come. Their high standard of excellence helped create such a beautiful home for my family. I definitely got my perfect dream house and I highly recommend them!!!

Our experience with Matt Powers Customs Homes was an outstanding success. They met and exceeded our expectations, not only with high quality, but, with incredible design and remarkable customer service.


Honest, reliable and straightforward!


Nothing but, utmost professionalism with their knowledge, experience and attitude.


We are thoroughly enjoying our new home and have received several compliments from friends, neighbors and acquaintances. We appreciate the fine work, dedication and care everyone at Matt Powers puts into making new homes. We have no problem recommending Matt Powers Custom Homes to anyone, anytime

Allison & Craig Cordola

We have used Matt Powers Custom Homes & Renovations on extensive projects for three homes that we have owned in the Houston area. He and his team are true professionals. We have used them each time we have purchased a new home – they have done the walkthrough with us and helped us determine what work needed to be done to the new purchase. They managed every detail and took the stress out of everything! It is much easier hiring them to manage each project as compared to trying to find the various contractors needed for a project. We have been in great hands with them on all of our projects! Highly recommend!!

Ileana & Mike Ferber

We chose Matt Powers due to their high quality and attention to detail, also the “true custom builder” feeling is intact in contrast to others self proclaimed custom builders. Matt himself was part of the planning and selection process, but we had throughout the whole building process (+1 year) the same project manager who actually remembered what we agreed at our weekly meetings and to sometimes our surprise even got them done before time. Our wish to build a transitional (borderline contemporary) house was no problem for MPCH and we believe we got the house of our dreams exactly like we envisioned from the drawing board to moving in. The fact that we are still on speaking terms with both builder and project manager is a testament to their honesty and true attention to the customer.

Yana McFatter

When we began to think about building our dream home on the lot that we purchased in Bunker Hill we talked to several builders. We decided to hire Matt Powers to build our home because Matt Powers and his team seemed to be the most professional, reliable and trustworthy of all the builders that we interviewed.


Our home was built timely and with high quality materials and workmanship. They have a network of sub contractors that perform high quality work at a reasonable price.


Finally the most important reason that we would recommend Matt Powers to anyone looking to build a high quality custom home is that they 100% and completely stand behind their work and have gone beyond the warranty to insure that we are happy and that everything works properly. Working with Matt Powers took the stress out of building and made the experience enjoyable.


We would be happy to discuss our experience of building with Matt Powers with anyone thinking of building a custom home.

Melody & Alex Gelb

Matt renovated all of the bathrooms in our home. His crew was so responsible, nice and professional. They readily answered any questions we had and cleaned up before they left our house for the day. Our bathrooms are absolutely beautiful!
We highly recommend Matt for any construction or renovation project you have!

Tom Cargill

Using Matt Powers Custom Homes and Renovations was a great decision for us. We had had a bad experience in the past with a remodeling project, so we were a little nervous about this undertaking in the first place. Matt and his team immediately put us at ease and drew up a workable and affordable plan for us. We couldn’t be more pleased with our remodeled master bathroom! Thank you Matt Powers Custom Homes & Renovations; it was a pleasure to work with such a dedicated and trustworthy team! We highly recommend them.

Beth Ferester

I have sold more of Matt Power’s homes than any other builder and can say that each experience was a pleasure. The Power’s team consists of talented and quality focussed artisans and professionals. The best confirmation of a builder is when clients become friends – that happens to Matt every time he builds a home.


I worked with Matt Powers Custom Homes & Renovations on several homes. Their craftsmanship is excellent with lots of attention to detail. They are good listening to their clients and creating beautiful homes that people with be happy with for years to come!

Laura & Jesus Bronchalo

My husband and I bought a Matt Powers home in December 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!

Winn and Cheryl

Thanks for building our new home. Since this was our first build from ground up, Cheryl and I did not know what was ahead, but we had heard all the horror stories.
From our first meeting, you made us feel at ease. And you guided us through every step, with patience and confidence. When we had questions or concerns, you immediately responded. In fact, I’ve never had anyone respond as quickly as you-24/7! I can’t tell you how much that meant to us.
Thanks again for our beautiful home and a job well done.
Merry Christmas.

Jane-Page Crump, RID ASID

Cindy Aplanalp-Yates, ASID

From Principal of Chairma Design Group

I’ve had the distinct pleasure of working with Matt Powers Custom Homes on numerous projects. Besides being an excellent builder, MPCH is honest, fair, and thoughtful and have they great follow through. They take pride in their homes and care to use quality materials and vendors. They are innovative and love to add the unique touches that make each home very livable for their homeowners. Matt Powers is very relationship-oriented with clients. He cares deeply and his level of dedication and professionalism is exhibited though out the entire organization.

Beth Ferester

From International President’s Premier Agent for The Ferester Team at Coldwell Banker

I have known Matt Powers and represented his building company for 8 years. I have found them to be of the highest quality, making it a pleasure to represent them as their sales agent in several neighborhoods. One of the outstanding qualities of Matt Power’s company is the teamwork that goes into every house. From the slab being poured to the finish with highly qualified artisans, the entire team combine to make the home go beyond ordinary and be extraordinary.


Matt Powers Custom Homes lead the others in innovative building practices, always on the forefront of new ideas and methods. It is always a pleasure to tell buyers about all of the outstanding features of a Matt Powers Custom Home from the finishes to behind the walls including their participation in the Leeds program.


I have yet to meet an employee of the company that isn’t excited, positive, and anxious to make the building experience a pleasure for the buyers and the sales team. Most of their clients end up being friends who recommend them to many others. I would not hesitate to recommend Matt Powers Homes to any buyer or their agent who are looking to have one of the most rewarding and exciting experiences in building their very own “dream home”.

Manuel Garcia

From the Owner of MG Trim Construction Company

As owner of MG Trim Construction Company, I have had the privilege to work closely with the staff at Matt Powers Custom Homes. They hold the satisfaction of the customer as their highest priority. Matt Powers’ Team provides easy communication between the builders and me; whether is is via phone, email or text, they respond immediately. The customer ultimately receives the highest of excellent service. The services I provide the company are the best quality and always receive prompt payment. I am very happy to recommend Matt Powers Custom Homes to any future potential homeowner or business partner.

Chad Lusk

From the Owner of Compass Drywall, LLC

It has been both a privilege and a pleasure to work with Matt Powers Custom Homes over the last five years. Matt, their construction manager, and their entire staff cultivate and maintain a standard of excellence which equals that of very few home builders in the Houston/Woodlands area. Their expectation for the highest quality material and labor from all of their subcontractors is appreciated by both homeowners and subcontractors, alike. At Compass Drywall, we’ve come to expect our MPCH projects to be ready for our crews upon arrival. Because our crews typically enter the project scene shortly after structural work is complete, we are able to observe and notate the quality and durability of a Matt Powers Custom Home at its core…second to none! This standard of excellence is not limited to the field. The folks in the office are friendly, professional, and extremely competent. They take pride in their relationships with their subcontractors, as well as in the quality of service those subs provide. We take great pride in working with MPCH. It is a partnership we hope to continue for many years to come!

Kent and Sandy Ketchum

After deciding to build our dream home, we chose Matt and his team 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.

Gerard and Krisi Monsivaiz

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.
We trust Matt & Laura’s real estate teams implicitly that we sold our dream home with Laura & purchased an older home and are performing an entire home remodel – far exceeded our expectations again.

Nancy & David Bishop

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 your construction manager for the excellent product. Our experience with your company was a real joy, and this is the fifth house we have built! Your team was a real pleasure to work with – quick and friendly in their 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.

Danny & Kayle Miller

It was a pleasure building our home with Matt Poweres Custom Homes; 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.

Patrick & Patricia Pringle

We just wanted to thank the team at Matt Powers Custom Homes 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 their construction manager.


They assisted us in every phase of the project, from layout and design to landscaping and “green building” certification. During construction, we met with the construction manager frequently to get status updates, make decisions and develop a schedule. No question of ours was too off the wall for their construction manager. 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.

Dr. Gary Mueck & Dr. Cynthia De Vos

Matt Powers Custom Homes 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.

Terry & Barbara Cargill

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!

Paul Ryan

From the President of Texas Pools

My name is Paul Ryan and I am the President of Texas Pools, Inc. We have been in business in the Houston/Woodlands area since 1980. We have worked in conjunction with countless custom homebuilders during that time, both on speculative home/pool building projects as well as with home/pool construction with contracted clients. For several years now, my company has been building high-end custom swimming pool projects with Matt Powers and his construction manager, the principals of Matt Powers Custom Homes, their custom home building company. Because of our ongoing personal working relationship with them, and, because of how their clients as well as how their sub-contractors speak of them, I can attest that they are one of the most respected home builders in the Houston/Woodlands metroplex.


Both Matt and his construction manager handle every project with the utmost professionalism and concern for the customer. It has been a pleasure working with Matt Powers Custom Homes as they share our approach to building – high-end quality, custom projects, that upon completion, all concerned will say that they are very proud to be part of theer construction team.

Gary P. Moss

From the President of Moss Landscaping

There are not too many homebuilders in Houston who possess the combined experience and financial strength to build and design beautiful homes and estates in Houston year after year under one original name. It is my observation that the homeowner develops a long term professional and personal relationship with the builder, years after the home is completed. Matt Powers Custom Homes provides the homeowners with the concept, design and execution of the final product in an efficient manner. Matt Powers Custom Homes has the combined experience, detailed eye, and management skills to provide the homeowner with the best subcontractors, architects, and engineers in Southeast Texas. Their team has a tremendous relationship with their subcontractors. Always fair, treated professionally and with integrity on every transaction and on every project.


Their team all bring ideas and value to the project. They provide ideas that will be the best results for the home owner. They think out the project together and always look at the best approach. This unique collaboration provides a fabulous project and a very pleased homeowner. Matt Powers Custom Homes understands customer service and always follows up with every little detailed punch list item. They understand the importance of customer satisfaction. Their accessibility and response is second to none. The underlying most important factor is Matt Powers Custom Homes possesses a positive attitude throughout their entire organization, and they get it.

Mike & Mercedes Kelly

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

Kurt & Patricia Goeringer

We chose Matt Powers Custom Homes because of the unparalleled level of quality and service that they provide. They walked us through every step and were there every day to ensure that every detail was perfect. They were sensitive to keeping costs in control. We could not be happier with our new home. Matt Powers Custom Homes exceeded our expectations in every way and to top it off, they are just great people to work with!

Charles Landry

I can’t tell you how thrilled I am with the place – it turned out better than I expected. I feel like Cinderella every time I walk through the front door. I can’t thank you enough – I am really looking forward to getting down there full time. It is beautiful and I could not be more delighted. And if you didn’t know it – Matt V. is worth his weight in gold. He has been awesome.

Meredith and Mark West

We are both delighted with the addition – the new garage, “new workshop” created from the old garage, and the huge multi-purpose room over the workshop and garage. Taken together with the miraculous redesign of most of the first floor including a fabulous, huge kitchen, the house has been transformed into the home we have always wanted. Know that your talents and excellent work make a difference, as we will enjoy our home every day!
