    5.0 Leighton R. Washington, DC

    John did a fantastic job on some built in cabinets I wanted to have installed at home. I had initially reached out to another contractor who had come to visit my home on a Thursday, by Friday I reached out and received another quote the same day from John which ended up being half the price of the original quote I received (a week later). John is extremely professional, very communicative and his work is exquisite. John completed the work in the time he stated, the quality of his work is superb and he's overall just a pleasure to be around and work with. I will definitely be reaching out to John for more projects I have in the coming year.

    5.0 John S. Washington, DC

    Fast, efficient, and beautiful work on built-in bookshelves that we'd been wanting to put in for a very long time. We couldn't be happier with the design and quality. Especially nice that it was a total pleasure to work with Matson Construction. Clear, responsive, professional. I've worked with a lot of contractors in 25 years of home ownership and John Matson is truly exceptional.

    John did an amazing job designing and building custom cabinets, bookshelves, and stairs for our dog. He is conscientious, flexible, and efficient in his work, has a great eye for detail, and went above and beyond in making sure the finished work was perfect. I would recommend him without hesitation.

    John is a pro! Our basement project turned out fantastic. Excellent communication, very efficient, and detail oriented. Couldnâ t ask for a better contractor.

    John is a talented carpenter with outstanding customer service. He completed built in shelves to flank our fireplace with cabinets at the bottom. We were pleased with the quality of the materials and attention to detail. He remained responsive from design through build and has a professional but easy-going manner.

    What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

    1. Verify Trade License
      HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
    2. Verify Insurance
      As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
    3. Verification of State Business Filings
      For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
    4. Criminal Records Search
      HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
    5. Sex Offender Search
      We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
    6. Bankruptcy Search
      We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
    7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
      We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
    8. Liens Search
