Henry Matoza: Owner (President and CEO)

Matoza Construction History:

In 1984 Henry Matoza Jr., a Journeyman electrician for a large electrical company based in Oakland and affiliated with Local Union #6 in San Francisco, successfully passed the California State License Board’s exam to become a General Building Contractor. He’s worked on construction crews of every sort, accelerating to journeyman level, in every position he’s held, since he was sixteen years old. Having mastered all phases of construction, from foundations to framing or the fine art of finish carpentry and tile mason; he knew instinctively that he would one day, run his own company.

Henry Matoza Construction began as a one-man show, working side jobs in his free time; mostly nights and weekends. Within two years, he quit his job as an electrician to become a full-time builder-contractor in order to keep up with the demand on his talents and to run his three-man crew, full-time.

In 1991, he hired twenty-two year old, Eric McFarlin, who was an outstanding finish carpenter. Eric was a natural – raised by a father who is a master craftsman in finish cabinetry; he was bred to be the best. Eric is Matoza Construction’s lead foreman, construction supervisor and estimator. His journeyman skills include all phases of construction; he can build your house from the ground up, performing each trade to perfection. His specialty though is predictable, like his dad, he is a master of carpentry.

Our company currently employs six full-time employees and one part-time bookkeeper. Our crews consist of at least two or three journeymen level tradesmen and a laborer. Our lead carpenters, including the seasoned Rob Simpkin, all have a minimum of twelve or more years of experience in carpentry and other trades. Our subcontractors feel like our employees, as most of them have been working with Matoza Construction for many years. Our standards of constructions and missions are the same, to give our clients the very best quality in workmanship, regardless of the budget.
