About Us

Kitchen remodelingR. Custom Homes,Inc. has established itself as a custom home building and remodeling company serving the Philadelphia Main Line and Chester County, Pennsylvania.  Established in 2005, R. Custom Homes,Inc. offers a wide range of interior/exterior design and contracting services, from replacement windows to two-story additions and custom homes.

Having spent his entire adult life working in various segments of the remodeling and home building industry, Robert worked in outside sales for a leading wholesale distributor of building materials based in Chester County, Pennsylvania.  With over a decade’s worth of experience selling building products to builders, contractors and architects Robert decided to take the next logical step in pursuing his passion for home building  by moving to another segment of the building and construction industry value chain–building product manufacturing.  In joining CertainTeed Corporation and later Alcoa Building Products, he advanced his career through a District SalesManager role selling and advising distributors, dealers and other construction industry professionals.

Prior to founding R. Custom Homes,Inc., Robert deepened his knowledge of the building trades, remodeling/home building process, and the balance that contractors and builders need to strike between honing their craft and growing a business by working for CertainTeed Siding Products and Alcoa Building Products(Ply Gem) managing a sales territory covering eastern Pennsylvania.  A graduate of the Pennsylvania State University, Robert Mathues founded his company in an entrepreneurial fashion, indeed the old-fashioned way – by acquiring land in Chester County PA and developing it into his first custom home.  R. Custom Homes,Inc. was born and to this day is founded on the belief that his company success is based on open and frequent communication between both the client and the construction project manager. The “R” in R. Custom Homes,Inc. represents “Remodeling”, and it also evokes the personal touch and custom nature of “our” craftsmanship.
