Scroggs Construction

Founded in 2016, Scroggs Construction is owned by a father son team of locals who specialize in home remodels and custom home builds. Using the experience from both father and son, a blended image of business operations and construction expertise was crafted into the company you see today.

Within the first year of work, Scroggs achieved recognition within the community for the PACE awards. These awards are given as a sign of excellence from the local housing authority, Asheville Home Builders Association. Today, Scroggs Construction is still striving to meet perfection in every area of our company in order to give our clients the experience they deserve when remodeling or building a home.

Testimonials

Without our clients, we wouldn't be able to continue to do the construction work that we love. This is why we put great detail and effort into every facet of our business. Here are some of our local asheville clients talking about our construction work. 

Marjorie and I are very grateful for the excellent work you have done at our home over the past month or so. The carport, deck, entry door, window, and electrical work all exceeded our expectations.

All along, you were friendly, accessible, thorough, and responsive, and you demonstrated creativity in planning these improvements. All of you are true professionals.

From the beginning, I thought that your pricing was fair and reasonable. By the time, the work was finished, and I was fully aware of the quality of the materials and workmanship, I felt that you had provided a real bargain.
— DICK H., Fairview NC
I cannot express enough how grateful I am to have found this outstanding contractor. Matt Scroggs delivers on his promises; provides quality work and has professional crews who are respectful and considerate of all your needs and beyond.

I will never hire another contractor — I’ve seen the rest, and now will only settle for the best. If you want the job done right — the FIRST time, you will too.
— Karen A., Candler NC
All of our numerous electric issues have been resolved, we have a beautiful 12′ x 22′ screened porch, a massive “fake fireplace” has been removed from the living room, and we have two beautiful bathrooms!

Every step of each project was performed with courteous, professional and timely encounters. Extreme expertise was apparent in all details. Each and every employee we dealt with was a joy!

We are so happy that we found them!
— Jean and Bob D., Hendersonville NC
Matt and his workers were exceptional, both in the quality of their work, as well as in timely return of calls, addressing concerns, comprehension of our ideas and ability to adjust his schedule to accomodate any changes or additions to the work planned. We ended up remodeling more that just the basement area; adding a deck, and completing a multitude of necessary main house repairs and updates. Without hesitation we would call him to perform work again! Great experience.!
— Jessica D., Asheville NC

Matt Scroggs

Owner/General Contractor

An Asheville Native, Matt graduated from Reynolds High School and attended Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College where he received an Associate Degree in Computer Programming specializing in business applications.

He spent five years as a DP manager at a local bank while serving as a volunteer Fire Fighter in Buncombe County where he quickly realized that community service was his passion and made fire fighting his full time career.  The immense amount of training required in the structural components of buildings sparked his interest in construction and he started his first construction business WinSide, a windows and siding installation and showroom, in 1990.
