Our Owner: Matthew Ostrowski
At Creative Enclosures, we take pride in knowing what we are great at! That's why we specialize in beautiful decks, bright and open sunrooms, screenrooms, porch enclosures, and a wide range of custom additions. Since 1988 it's been our goal to help homeowners create the homes of their dreams. We are an independently owned and operated Four Seasons Sunrooms franchise, which is a nationally recognized leader in the sunroom industry.
By focusing on our specialties we are able to ensure our clients will receive our focused commitment to their project. With over 30 years of experience, we know how to create, communicate, build and deliver projects to our clients that are on-time, on-budget, and with no unforeseen surprises. Not only will our clients not have to deal with any unnecessary hassle, but they can also enjoy a space that "helps you live better at the same address!"
We have also earned The National Association of Home Builders’ (NAHB) Certified Graduate Remodeler (CGR) designation and The NAHB Certified Green Professional (CGP) designation. The GCR designation emphasizes business management skills as the key to a professional remodeling business and the GCP designation recognizes builders and remodelers who incorporate green principles into their projects — without driving up project costs.
As your trusted home improvement experts in Southeastern CT, we also make it a point to stand behind our work. Our policy is to exceed industry standards when it comes to warranties and we’ve even serviced and relocated sunrooms that we installed 15 to 20 years ago.
Never lose sight of what is most important… Our team, working as one, to deliver the best project possible to each client. Creative Enclosure’s “A-1” team members communicate, follow-up and create their best possible work because they know this helps each other grow personally and professionally and ensures our most important clients a superb outcome to their project.
Our Owner: Matthew Ostrowski & his dog Hugo
Matthew grew up with the building bug. His Dad, Chet, along with his two brothers owned and operated a successful commercial contracting business in Buffalo, NY called Ostrowski Builders. Growing up, Matt, along with his brothers Mark, John, & Luke. would spend time on his Dad’s job sites, traveling to see various clients. He'd also sweep down the office floor for the simple promise of a Big Mac at Mickey D's.
Upon entering high school, Matt was the only one of the four brothers that chose to go to McKinley Technical High School and take up the carpentry program. After graduation, and while working various carpentry jobs, Matthew entered college and studied Construction Management and Urban Planning. During his college years, he would fall in love with New England after taking a motorcycle trip up to Connecticut in order to visit his older brother who had recently moved to Norwich, CT.
Matthew & Jennifer Ostrowski
After graduating in 1985, Matt would decide to act on this newfound love and move to Connecticut with just his car and a trunk full of belongings. He bunked with his brother for a brief period and then got a job as a Manufacturer’s Rep for a Window and Sunroom company and moved to Worcester, MA. During this time he discovered that he loved working with homeowners to help design and create the spaces of their dreams. With this newfound purpose, he moved back to Norwich in 1988 and started his own home improvement company that he named Creative Enclosures. The rest, as they say, is history.
Matthew is all about personal connections, offering fair and honest communication and listening carefully to clients to help them live better at the same address. Today he still works closely with clients, but also with all of the Creative Enclosures’s Team Members to ensure they bring the same passion, expertise, and professionalism to Creative Enclosures’s clients and their projects.
When not immersed in all the facets of Creative Enclosures, Matthew is an avid cycler and antique car buff. He and his wife Jennifer are partners in business and have been married for 26 years. They enjoy great food, wine, and travel around the world. They have a very cute and crazy French Bulldog named Hugo that loves the beach, napping, treats and squeaky toys!
