Matt Risinger More about Matt Risinger Builder and YouTube star Matt Risinger got his start in the building world with a National Builder in 1995, but it was the mold crisis of the early 2000’s that got him started on the path to High Performance. He studied Building Science voraciously in order to understand these failures and prevent them in future Builds. Risinger started blogging about his passion for better building science and fine craftsmanship in 2007, branching out into making short videos on YouTube in 2008. His audience is generally Builders, Remodelers, and Architects and his Build Show covers topics like: Best Practices, Insulation, Air Sealing, HVAC, Product Reviews, and Craftsmanship. Now, with over 60K social media followers, Risinger is very nearly a household name — at least in the residential construction industry. He still focuses his content on the best way to build something that is not only beautiful, but durable, sustainable and efficient. He is a regular contributor to Fine Homebuilding & The Journal of Light Construction. Check out his blog at and or follow him on Twitter @MattRisinger or Instagram @RisingerBUILD
