I'm Matthew Dougherty, a fully-licensed and insured general contractor with 30 years of construction experience in Honolulu. I’m ready to tackle any and all construction, from a small repair to a large scale new build.
I listen to my customers so I am able to understand what they want, what they need and what problems they are trying to solve. Decades in construction experience have given me a broad knowledge of materials, hardware, and construction best practices.  I can offer creative solutions, suggestions and multiple options to help with every step of the construction process. 
I value honesty, quality work and good communication to ensure a healthy client / builder relationship. It is an honor and a privilege to be invited into a home and help the family expand or improve their living area. I take this very seriously and treat all jobs and clients with respect and integrity.
Call to schedule an initial consultation today.

What My Clients Have to Say

"Matthew is very good at envisioning solutions for the task, measuring with precision for close area work, as well as creating an excellent result. The most important thing I can say about Matthew is that we trust him, both as a contractor and as a person.  We left him the key and our alarm code, left on a 3 week trip, and we knew all would be safe and cared for."

Don Ingram
