Driven by a dedication to provide the highest quality craftsmanship and construction management, Allwood has continued to be a leading builder since it's founding in 1979. Starting as a small company, Matt Gomez Sr. and Jr. have assembled a skilled team of project managers, carpenters and specialty craftsman capable of building the peninsula's most beautiful and complex residences. This well developed team has brought a personal and effective approach to a variety of projects including new homes, basements, remodels and historic renovations. The results are over 35 years of successful projects and repeat business with architects and clients.
"Build it Better" — The Allwood team shares a belief that by striving for perfection we are each capable of delivering the highest quality product in the industry. While speed is critical to the schedule and budget, we believe it is important to dedicate the time and effort necessary to complete each detail properly.
As craftsmen, we take pride in knowing we used our skills to create a product better than our client expected.
Our process has been developed to give our clients the best possible experience. Often we are added to the team during the design phase to assist in project feasibility, cost assessment, and exploratory demolition. This pre-construction service has proved invaluable to a properly planned project. During this process we work with the client and their design professionals to refine the scope of work to create an accurate plan set for permit submittal.
Our construction services include management of the project schedule, RFI tracking, and all construction coordination. Throughout the course of construction we meet regularly to ensure Allwood, architect, designer and owner are aware of any jobsite topics, ideas, or questions. This assists in timely decisions and a reduction in construction issues. Our continual supervision and expert team ensures the project runs smoothly while maintaining the highest quality possible from start to finish. Upon completion we are readily available to handle any additional work requests or maintenance requirements.
We are dedicated to our clients, which is why they love referring us
to their friends and why they keep coming back.
"We have used multiple contractors on multiple projects. Without a doubt, Allwood Construction is the most professional, most efficient, most experienced, and most pleasant contractor we've ever employed. It isn't just that they know what they're doing, which they do. Nor is it just that they take extraordinary care in everything from inputting steel beams to cleaning up the ever-present mess. It's that no problem seems too difficult for them to solve."

"We were virgin home builders and Allwood Construction made us feel confident, comfortable, and taken care of through the entire process. The work is impeccable. With a fine eye to detail, Matt would walk through the house and talk through each detail at length so we knew what we were getting into and there were no surprises. Once you build with Allwood, you are family (they did come over and fix a locked door on Thanksgiving!). We'd hire them a million times over!"
