Matt Risinger is a nationally recognized expert in building science and high-performance construction, gaining fame as host of The Build Show on YouTube. Matt regularly works with Builders FirstSource on all sorts of projects, including building houses with our READY-FRAME® system, taking advantage of our BFS Digital Tools, and even appearing at our live events.

Matt started learning about construction by working summers at an inner-city ministry that fixed up row houses for elderly people. After graduating from college, the national mold crisis in 2002 inspired him to become fluent in Building Science. In 2005, Matt relocated to Austin where he founded Risinger & Company, and has since become a leader in the industry.


Follow along with Matt as he builds a new, state-of-the-art, high-performance home using BFS Digital Tools and building science principles in this 24-episode BUILD original series.
