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.
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.
He has since retired from firefighting after 25 years of service and owned and operated several Remodeling and General Contracting Businesses throughout the Asheville area after obtaining his General Contractors License in 2007.
