Steve Matela has been exclusively and continuously active in the construction industry since 1986. During the first 5.5 years, Steve was employed by a small construction firm that specialized in residential remodeling. This allowed him diverse exposure and the ability to hone basic skills including: masonry, carpentry, roofing, siding, drywall, and plumbing. During that period, Steve was elevated from a laborer to lead carpenter.
In July 1996, Detailed Interiors was established by Steve. At that time, a high demand for residential remodeling was very apparent. Over a period of a few years, Steve sub-contracted for other builders and began obtaining his own clients. Soon, with a growing client base and a demand for projects that required more responsibility, Steve obtained his General Contractors License. In 2000, Detailed Interiors joined the National Association of The Remodeling Industry and Steve obtained three certifications: Certified Remodeler, Certified Kitchen & Bath Remodeler, and more recently, Universal Design Certified Professional. Steve also has obtained all required EPA Lead Paint training and licensing for homes built before 1978.
Today, Steve continues to personally build a variety of small to mid-size projects with a group of preferred sub-contractors.
