"Our remodel was a huge success! We call it our "forever" home now because there isn't one thing that we would change. Allwood Construction did a beautiful job in making our dream a reality.
Adam and Donna Badgett
We recommend Matt and his company any time we hear that someone is thinking of remodeling. Matt's team is professional and extremely skilled. They were able to foresee issues and solve them without losing valuable time on the job. They are proud of their work and it shows! Matt takes the time to give a true and accurate quote on both time and expenses. This is a huge bonus when budgeting for a remodel.
Allwood Construction is a class act. They get the job done on time and exceed expectations. Our neighbors even liked them! How often can you say that?

"We were so thankful that we hired Allwood construction for our home remodel. Matt and his crew were easy to get along with, got the job done on time, and did quality work. We would hire them again in a second.

"We are thrilled with our remodel by Allwood Construction. Matt Gomez was very responsive when we first contacted him and met with us several times in the course of our design. This was a tremendous help as we worked to finalize a design that would work within our budget.
Matt has an impressive, talented crew on his staff. Just as importantly, he has a solid group of subcontractors and contacts that have worked extensively with Allwood. Both Allwood's crew and subcontractors responded quickly to our needs. The constant communication and respect between the contractor and subcontractor ensured our job ran smoothly and any challenges were dealt with efficiently.
Allwood Construction is one of the most efficient contractors. They finished our job within the timeline estimated, and were months earlier that any comparison bids we received. We had not been through a remodel before and we very much appreciated Matt's management and communication throughout the project. There were no surprises.
We have been highly impressed with the craftsmanship and care of Matt's team. Our home looks beautiful and we couldn't be more pleased with his work. We continue to get compliments on our house. We highly recommend Matt Gomez and Allwood Construction."

"Matt and the gang were great with our kitchen remodel. Delivered on time and on budget. The subcontractors were accountable and kept the place clean. Overall quality was excellent. Would definitely use them again."
"We are thrilled to be included on the website for Allwood Construction. We cannot recommend Matt Gomez and his team strongly enough!! When we first considered construction on our home, we started asking our friends for referrals, and all we got were contractor horror stories. People were disappointed, angry, and unsatisfied. Luckily, one friend turned us onto Matt, and from that minute on, everything went smoothly. The team was on the job every day, they were professional and courteous, every sub was well qualified and they were unbelievably neat. The scheduling of the overlapping individuals was amazing and kept the job running quickly and easily. We have three very young children and I never once worried for their safety on any level. The jobsite was always tidy and the subs who were in and out of our home were people Matt had worked with for over a decade. We completed two projects with Allwood and both were completed on time and on budget. We have no hesitation about telling everyone we know who is considering a construction project to look no further - Allwood is simply the best there is."

"We love Allwood Construction! We are still in awe at what they created for us in such a short time. We just can't recommend them highly enough!
Matt and Doug are two of the most skilled, competent, talented, flexible, easy to work with, accommodating, smart, amazing contractors ever. We moved out of our San Carlos home at the end of April, doing a HUGE renovation, adding a second level and completely remodeling
everything. We made many changes to the original blueprint, (like deciding to raise the ceilings right before work was to begin) and we were still back in our home a few days before Thanksgiving. Matt has a unique gift of making things move along while maintaining excellence.
Matt does a superb job of hiring and keeping his subs for a long time. Everyone was always on time, on task, clean, and hardworking. In addition to their skills, they were all wonderful people to work with, making the process fun and enjoyable! Matt and his crew build each home as if it were their own. The quality and craftsmanship is
Doug could think "outside the box" in ways we never imagined. There seemed to be no problem Doug couldn't solve. (for example, the placement of our stairs didn't fit with the original blueprint... the measurements were off, but Doug redesigned them, working overtime just to make it right). The end result was incredible. Better than the
original! He did this again with some old corner cabinets we wanted saved...renovating them so they would look beautiful in our dining room. Any issue that came up, Matt and Doug would brainstorm and find a solution. And, they managed to do this without creating stress on us. In fact, it was just the opposite. They did everything with grace, humor, patience, and dedication.
Matt and his crew were also fantastic at working with designers, or anyone brought in on the project. Matt's son, Matt was also an integral part of the process and so great to work with. He was always responsive, e-mailing back right away, helping solve any problem, and giving great feedback and ideas. He is smart and is such an asset to Allwood Construction.
We would be happy to talk with anyone who is thinking about a major or minor remodel. We would do it all again in a heartbeat. It was such a great 7 months working daily with Allwood Construction. We miss seeing them everyday. We are grateful to them for our beautiful home,
and we know that anyone who uses them will be SO glad they did! They make remodeling a joy!"

"We have used multiple contractors on multiple projects. Without a doubt, Allwood Construction is the most professional, most efficient, most experienced, and most pleasant contractor we've ever employed. It
isn't just that they know what they're doing, which they do. Nor is it just that they take extraordinary care in everything from inputting steel beams to cleaning up the ever-present mess. It's that no problem seems too difficult for them to solve. They are always ready with solutions rather than leaving it to us to figure out. Beyond that, we never feel nickel and dimed. Matt, Doug and their team do whatever it takes to make their customer happy--without upcharging. They also employ some of the best subs out there. Allwood certainly is not the cheapest contractor out there. But we have always felt like we get our money's worth. I would not hesitate to recommend these guys for any

"I really want to thank you and your fantastic gang for a most phenomenal experience in getting the house of our dreams. We couldn't be happier. And the complements just keep coming. I invited our real estate agent to see the house and she said that she thinks we can recoup our remodel cost today ... wooohooo!!! Anyway : everyone is loving your work and I obviously cannot say enough about how much I love you all!!!"

"Allwood delivered our project on budget and on time - several weeks faster than other bids. The quality of the work was excellent. Matt and Doug are great to work with - we highly recommend Allwood!"

"Allwood Construction was recommended by our architect. Matt clearly stated what they could do and not do right from the beginning. Their straightforward approach and great communication throughout the process was refreshing and appreciated. With a 70 year old house, unexpected issues were bound to surface and the Allwood team consistently worked through the challenges and found creative solutions for a satisfactory resolution. Although they were not the lowest bid, we found that they provided exceptional value. Allwood's team was professional, courteous, hardworking, and focused on the quality of the project while the senior staff was always available and present for hands-on solutions. One of our neighbors even mentioned that Allwood's team was the quietest construction group they had ever experienced, even compared to projects a fraction of the size. We highly recommend Allwood Construction."

"Quality work, on-time, on-budget and responsive to our concerns are terms that describe our experience with Allwood Construction. They were very responsive to our calls and would meet us at the project at our earliest convenience to discuss issues that arise during all phases of the construction. Even after the project was completed they visited and called to make sure everything was working properly. We would highly recommend them to anyone."

"Allwood construction did a super job on our new home! Matt and his crew worked every day to get our complete teardown/remodel done in just 6 months. We live in a busy area of San Carlos, and many people stopped by to compliment on how fast the job was done. Not only do they work fast, but quality of the work was superb. Matt's crew even received compliments from our neighbors who stated they were very professional, tidy, and took short lunch breaks so they could get right back to work! I tell anyone doing a remodel to get a quote from Allwood. There will be no surprises in the bill and you are ensured a quality house in a relatively short amount of time! "
