Matt Risinger

Matt has been a builder for almost 20 years and has been blogging about his passions of building science and fine craftsmanship since 2008. 

Matt started learning about construction by working summers at an inner-city ministry who fixed and maintained homes for the elderly at no cost. After college, he worked for NVR Ryan Homes, and enjoyed his 7 years with that mega builder. But he was still looking to satisfy his desire for “craftsmanship." It was the national mold crisis that led him to the path of building science. Since then, learning why houses are failing and the science behind construction has become a passion.

Matt has also been a contributing writer for Fine Homebuilding and the Journal of Light Construction
