Customer Testimonials

"Building a new home is not for the faint of heart. The key in getting it done right--and not losing your mind--is to select the right contractor. For us, it was an easy decision. After interviewing a number of candidates, we chose Sea Island. They offered state of the art planning and construction management, with traditional, lowcountry personal relationships. We were particularly impressed that people who had used them years ago still were opening their homes to us so that we could see the quality of the work they do and had been doing for years. It means a lot that someone would trust their contractor enough years later to let them roam through the house without them being there. We could not be more pleased with how the job turned out. We needed to be in the house on June 20, 2017 and Sea Island managed to get it done, even in the face of hurricanes, floods and last minute surprises by the town. We felt that we could always talk openly with Jeff and Jason--whether things were going perfectly or not--and that they would resolve any issues professionally and honestly. We've built before and understand that many home-building stories don't end happily. Ours did because we chose the right builder."

"Sea Island Builders totally renovated our beach front house. It is gorgeous! I can't believe that I live in such a nice house. They came up with great ideas, like a nanawall and a three sided fireplace, both of which sent our house over the top. They were responsive when we had needs or questions. They are great!"

"We selected Sea Island Builders as our contractor to build our custom home on Hamlin Creek in 2011. They had our Certificate of Occupancy for our house in 9 months and they were completely finished with the punch list and loose ends in 10 months. We were very impressed with the diligence in which they aggressively pursued our tight schedule. We also were very impressed with the quality of the work and the price in which they were able to deliver that quality. Sea Island Builders was significantly less than the competition, saved us considerable money on design ideas, and stayed on budget throughout the project. Our project manager was a pleasure to work with and made the whole building experience enjoyable. This is the third custom home we have built and our experience with Sea Island Builders was by far our best ever."

"We first met Sea Island builders through the normal process of soliciting bids on a remodeling project to our home. After a number of meetings with various contractors, it became clear that Sea Island Builders and especially Jason Fowler were very interested in working with us on our project…Jason and his skillful management of the day to day operations produced not only a completed project that exceeded our expectations, but one that allowed us to actually "enjoy the ride" along the way and throughout the many decisions that were required. The project also finished under budget and on time…Our past experiences in various building projects over the years have been generally good, but there are issues that arise which require on-the-job decision making in order to deal with unforeseen problems. Here is where the pride, determination, and integrity of Jason and his company revealed distinguishing characteristics over many of the other builders whom we have employed…Seldom does a relationship extend beyond the completion of the project; however, we would like to think another project will provide an opportunity to work again with Sea Island builders."

"I have enjoyed working with Sea Island Builders from start to finish. They are respectful, responsible and efficient. From the time they entered the project, they proved to be creative problem solvers. Their subcontractors were also intelligent and accomplished. After 26 years as an interior designer, I would rate them number 1.”

"We just finished our renovation project with Sea Island Builders and couldn't be more pleased! Throughout the project's entire progression the management team paid attention to every detail to ensure our expectations were met, and their quality of craftsmanship and pride in their work shows in our home. They made the whole experience easy and we highly recommend them for any home construction needs you may have."

"Jeff was great to work with, and we could not be happier with the end result of our renovation. Our project was on a limited budget and desired timeframe and they were extremely helpful in balancing quality construction and the "right thing to do" while keeping our project UNDER BUDGET and finished ahead of schedule. Since this is a second home for us, Jeff was a trusted advisor as we were not able to be on site more than once a week. He was easy to reach, communicated effectively and kept us connected to the day to day progress. Sea Island Builders was a strong partner with us on our renovation and managed the project to exceed our needs and expectations. We would highly recommend Sea Island Builders."

"After interviewing a number of local builders, my wife and I chose Sea Island Builders for our project. We were very pleased with the finished product and with the overall construction process. Not only did our project manager, Jeff Mathis, have great ideas, he was highly responsive, quality oriented and thoughtful. Jeff's sub-contractors were very professional and had the same passion for quality as Jeff. We would recommend the Sea Island Builders team for any new construction or major renovation project where quality and attention to detail are paramount.
