Our Reason For Being In Business


Formerly known as North Bay Fire Claim Assist, BW Builder, Inc. builds custom homes in Sonoma and Napa Counties. We also create scope of loss reports for fire and disaster survivors from all over California, including Napa and Sonoma County, Redding, Paradise and Malibu areas recently affected by the Tubbs, Carr, Camp and Woolsey fires.


Whether we are building your dream home or performing a scope of loss report, you can trust us to communicate clearly, perform with competence and deliver on time and on budget.

We are passionate about doing business the right way. We believe in a triple bottom line philosophy. Our goal is to be recognized as a Certified B Corporation as soon as we become eligible in 2020.


Company Founders

Our two founders are Bill Wallace and Matt Everson. Both gentlemen live and work in Santa Rosa. Both have extensive experience owning and operating their own businesses. Each shares a philosophy that whatever the business, service should be quality, execution and delivery should be excellent and the finished product so satisfactory, a customer cannot help but to refer us.



Matt Everson owned MJ Everson Financial for nearly 20 years before selling the financial planning firm in August of 2017. He grew up in Novato and came to Sonoma County 30 years ago. A graduate of Sonoma State University, he brings the combined knowledge of an experienced financial planner, long time business owner and community servant to BW Builder as the company's CEO.


Bill Wallace began working the construction trade under the tutelage of his father over 20 years ago as a teenager. First building homes, then after completing a degree at San Francisco State University, he jumped into commercial builds in San Francisco. He gained a lifetime of experience working on fire rebuilds in the city. That experience also taught him the ins and outs of Xactimate software which has been so helpful to so many who have lost their homes to our devastating wildfires.

When he came back north, he got into business with his brother and a third business partner at West Coast Diesels. But after the fires, he realized his expertise in Xactimate and building could be a great benefit to our neighbors who had survived the Tubbs Fire.

Whether you need a custom home built or a scope of loss report to help establish your losses, BW Builder is a company with heart, acting to serve and executing with the high levels of proficiency and competence you deserve.
