Matt was very good at listening to our needs and finding ways to meet them.Rick & Barbara Arthur
Into 2008 my wife Barbara and I decided to build a house in Nags Head. Our realtor John Thompson suggested that we look at the floor plan of a house on the beach road that was built by Matt Tappero, President of  Coastal Construction of North Carolina Inc. John was very complimentary of Matt and highly recommended him to us as a potential builder for our new house.

Barbara and I really like the layout of the house and the open flow of the living room kitchen and dining area on the top floor so we set up a meeting to talk to Matt. After the meeting with Matt we hired him and began the building process. During the initial planning progress we asked Matt about some modifications that we wanted to make and asked for estimates on the additional costs. Throughout the planning and building process, Matt was very open to accommodating our needs and was very fair and upfront with his cost estimates. In many cases we would suggest one thing and Matt would see additional potential and made great suggestions that we adopted.

Matt pays attention to details built a quality house and he was very accessible to us throughout the entire process occasionally we need to contact Matt for advice and he is still very happy to help us.

Both Barbara and I were very pleased with our building experience and the quality of the house that Matt built for us without hesitation we highly recommend that as a builder for your new home.

It is with the utmost enthusiasm that I recommend Coastal Construction for a custom home building  project. My wife and I decided to build a home – our first  construction effort – and we had vague ideas of design components, location and amenities. Matt Tappero worked  with us to find a fantastic lot (his wife, Denice, is a real  estate agent, and she even helped us purchase it), and  together we designed our home. Matt provided numerous  on-target ideas and suggestions, and he funneled us toward house plans that met our needs. We still customized quite a bit of the design, and he  confidently translated our scribbled napkins into a  beautiful home.

We refurbished an  old claw-foot tub, repurposed old doors, picked up glass blocks  from the curb on trash day, and ordered quite a bit of  off-spec reclaimed wood flooring.

The result is a beautiful home with ocean views and reclaimed features galore. I credit Matt’s  years of expertise, his careful selection of quality  subcontractors, his attention to detail and easy-going  nature. Honestly, we must have been a challenge to work with, but  you’d never have known it in how Matt treated us. Trust  me, if you want a well-constructed home on the Outer Banks  that meets your needs, Coastal Construction is the builder  for you.


We are very pleased to recommend Matt and his company to anyone in need of both large and small scale construction work.Jeff & Trudy Grillo
We have used Matt Tappero and his company Coastal Commercial Construction for the past 8 years.  During this time, Matt completed a variety of renovation and remodel projects for our home in Duck.

The work was always high quality and competitively priced.

Because we live in Virginia, all of the projects were completed without our oversight.  Yet we could count on Matt to be thorough and cover the details for us.

We couldn’t ask for a better renovation and are very happy with the end result. Matt is honest, trustworthy, and very knowledgeable.Craig & Tracy Ryder
My husband and I bought an older house with intentions of adding on a great room and renovating the existing kitchen and exterior. We were so pleased to find Coastal Construction Company.

The owner, Matt Tappero helped us decide what type of renovations we needed to fit our living needs. He was there throughout the entire process of making the plans, having them stamped by an architect, and structural engineer.

We were very impressed with the subcontractors that he hired to do the work and with Matt’s personal staff that were there every day to see the project through. We highly recommend meeting with Matt and allowing him to build your dream home.

It was truly a pleasure working with Matt.Meadow & Craig Kelly
We had the pleasure of working with Matt Tappero as he built our beautiful vacation beach home. Our home was completed in April 2011 at 4245 Lindbergh Ave., Kitty Hawk, NC.

Matt was very conscientious and paid close attention to detail including helping with house plans managing the site work completing the different stages of construction in a timely manner and finalizing the project including the house pool hot tub and landscaping on schedule.

Always conducting himself in a professional manner that was easy to work with patient and always responded promptly to any of our questions or concerns in fact there was one instance in particular when we were concerned about the recreation room being too small for the second TV area. Immediately Matt came over and in is positive way suggested moving the small kitchenette into another area of the room which opened us up space for a cozy den nook. It was the perfect place for our La-Z-Boy chair, small couch and flatscreen TV. We were delighted and spend lots of family time watching movies and our special den.

It was truly a pleasure working with Matt and we are very happy with the lovely vacation beach home that he built for us we highly recommend Matt Tappero as a builder and would have him do additional construction work for us in the future.

Wow you guys! Thank you so much for the Patron and the (very generous!) gift card for Kitty Hawk Garden Center. That will come in handy for sure!

But mostly, thank you for our house! We just love our home and I hope you heard all the compliments we got yesterday which you deserved, not us! Thank you for your patience with us ands for building us a beautiful and solid home.
– Lovele & Jason
