There’s Nothing We Love More Than a Happy Client

At the end of each project there’s one primary way we measure our success – your satisfaction. We’re happy to share a few words of praise from our clients:

Lea Wade – "I wanted to let you know I have never had a group of men in our “castle” that I have enjoyed so much. They were gracious, polite, helpful, clean, respectful and any other compliment I have missed. From the moment they came in the morning until the end of the day when they left they were a pleasure to have in our home. The work they did is by far some of the best work I have ever had done."

Betsy and Leroy Reed – "Your solid reputation with us has been anchored by the personal attention provided by you and your long-time employees in solving our problems, both real and perceived, during the construction phases and, more impressively, the nettlesom little follow-on glitches that inevitably plague all alteration projects. To Betsy and me, Chuck and Joe and your many other dedicated employees represent the professional essence of your company."

"I first hired Highsmith Construction about 11 years ago to do a total gut and remodel on our townhouse. They did about 4-months of work and when finished it was a like a new property. They were easy to work with, trustworthy and found many ways to reduce cost and/or improve results as they worked.

We’ve just re-engaged Highsmith for some further updating to our townhouse and as usual, I’m very happy with their reliability, quality of work and integrity."

"We wish to take this opportunity to express our sincere thanks to the entire Highsmith Construction team. Our home in Palmetto Bluff exceeded our expectations. Quality, careful attention to detail and ongoing follow-up are just some of the hallmarks that Highsmith Construction can bring to your home project."

"We were referred to the Highsmiths after rethinking the layout and functionality of our home . We knew immediately that the Highsmith team ‘got us’ and understood our end goal. They made great suggestions along the way regarding practical functionality and enhancement. And, when we made changes to the project they took them in stride and made them happen.

Our confidence in working with this team only grew and we never felt pressure to do more or spend more than we wanted. Their team of professionals arrived on time, cleaned up each day and were extremely helpful and polite.

We love our new place…because what used to be a house, is now a home!"

"Mr. Highsmith and the rest of the Highsmith team made this restaurant remodel easy. Beyond being a joy to work with they came in on time and on budget. Joe’s knowledge of Hilton Head and the permitting process really helped keep things on schedule and we’ve got a stunning restaurant to show for it."

"We first met the Highsmiths in the spring of 2013 after purchasing a house in Sea Pines Plantation. Lucky for us, Joe was working on the house right next door. After getting to know Joe and his superintendent, Chuck, we sought their input regarding our new home. We weren’t sure whether to tear the house down and rebuild or remodel. Ultimately, we decided to start over with Highsmith’s help. They took the house down quickly and inexpensively and when we were ready to rebuild we went straight back to the Highsmith team. Since we weren’t from the area, lowcountry style was new to us. We trusted Highsmith Construction to build the perfect beach house and that’s what they did. The design and build phase went smoothly. We’ve been in the house for nearly five years and are happier than ever with the results."

Several days ago, a friend of mine who had spent some time in Hilton Head, remarked to me about the difference in the quality of homes he had been in. It was easy for me to let him know that had he been in our home – the home you constructed – he would have seen the epitome of quality. You are aware that I unhesitatingly tell people who visit us that this is a Highsmith house. I do that with great pride in your craftsmanship. Throughout the process of building the home, your personal involvement was apparent. Equally apparent was the pride of the people who work for you. It is clear the long relationship of your subs, with you, is vital to the end product. Beyond all of this, your willingness – in face, your energy – in addressing any matter that arose after construction was notable.

Just a note on behalf of both Lee and me to say thank you for the wonderful home you and your team built for us in Palmetto Bluff. To say that we are thrilled with it is an understatement. We simply enjoy it more each day.

We know that the design of our house presented some interesting construction issues, e.g., the curve and working around the snag, but you worked through them with grace and apparent ease. Your thoughts and ideas contributed to a great final product, building on a great plan to make the features in the house even better. Without your input along the way, and sometimes insistence that we revisit what we thought we were going to do, the finish work in the house wouldn't pop the way it does.

Highsmith Construction stepped up to the challenge of a difficult architectural concept and executed it handsomely, creating a two-story section of our home which quickly became our favorite place to be over the last decade. We’d recommend Joe and his crew without reservation ~ not the least expensive builders you can find, just the best.

"Barbara and I were most pleased with the level of professionalism and integrity we encountered from Joe Highsmith and his company's employees, with a recent major renovation to our Windmill Harbour townhouse.They assisted us in the overall design, and provided unique ideas to the final plan.

Living in Connecticut, and New Hampshire at the time, we depended upon Joe's teams' ability to carry out our wishes of completing a complex set of changes, while needing assurances from a far distance, that all changes were being carried out satisfactorily, within budget, and on time. The monthly bookkeeping statements were clear and made it easy for us to track expenditures including change orders. We were delighted with the final results. We would recommend Highsmith Construction to all interested parties, and would be happy to discuss our oveall experience".

"Our home on Spring Island…we couldn’t have done it without you! The project wasn’t simply a remodel, it was a rebuild. Highsmith Construction was central to the team which also included the architect, the interior designer, the landscapers and the dreaming homeowners. You had practical, imaginative ideas from the outset that resulted in creating a very comfortable, livable home, which was constructed with pride.

It was always a pleasure to meet with you, Joe, your subs and regular employees. We quickly learned to rely on your recommendations; we knew that you would follow through in a timely, efficient way. You kept us well-informed throughout the rebuilding process which was so important to us living 1600 miles away. We appreciated your energy, your insight and your ethics.

I would, without hesitation, recommend Highsmith Construction to anyone considering new residential construction, major remodeling, or rebuilding."
