About Hammerhead Custom Builders



“Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives.” William A. Foster

The award winning Hammerhead Custom Builders name is at the forefront of the local custom home building industry in the South Carolina Lowcountry.With a meticulous eye for detail and a passion for helping people obtain their dreams, Hammerhead Custom Builders has become one of the most well respected builders in the area. The company’s reputation was created quite simply through quality craftsmanship and homeowner satisfaction.

With every project, Hammerhead Custom Builders continues to set the benchmark for excellence through detailed supervision and efficient management with a balance of innovative design, state-of-the-art technologies and unsurpassed craftsmanship. Every Hammerhead Custom Builders project – custom or speculative home, addition, remodel, or renovation – is built to stringent standards.

Jake Gartner, CEO and Owner of Hammerhead Custom Builders takes pride in his company and the fact that he personally spends most of his days out of the office “in the field” and “on-site”. He explains the Hammerhead Custom Builders business philosophy: “From design to final walk-through, we supervise every aspect of the building process, only use quality materials, and our sub-contractors are the best in the business. You can be confident that your new or renovated home will be built to the same standards of excellence as the homes on which we have built our reputation”.
