Jake is the best! Great quality work, always on time and dependable. Always willing to take after hour calls for emergencies – never hides behind the cell phone! Superb work and a pleasure to have on the property. We give him the highest recommendation possible and trust him 100%.

We used Jake for a Villa remodel in Sea Pines. While our job was not the largest, we felt like he was personally involved in the entire process. He communicated along the way and kept us informed of deadlines. Most importantly, when a problem came up, he took ownership and quickly worked to a resolution. It is hard to ask more than that. We would definitely recommend Jake to others.

We hired Jake and his team in early 2007 to build an approximately 950 square foot area above our garage. With Jake’s suggestions and design, we were able to fit 2 bedrooms, 2 baths and a large playroom, perfect for our numerous family guests with children.
We hoped that it could be completed before we celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary on June 8, and Jake made sure that it was, after less than 2 months of working on it. It came out beautifully and we have shared our new rooms with many people who are amazed that so many nice sized rooms and baths could be designed and built for us.
Jake and his team did an outstanding job with credibility and enthusiasm, and hard work. They worked long days, evenings, and some weekend days to meet our request. We are confident that he would handle any project in a similar fashion combining quality construction with fiscal restraints.
We’ve worked with other builders on Hilton Head and never had the same feeling that our project was in such good hands as it was with Hammerhead

Dear Jake:
Just wanted to let you know how much we appreciated all you did during our reconstruction project. As an out of town owner, we are extremely concerned to find the right contractor that would treat our project as if it were their own. With you, we definitely felt that way. You were always timely in all communications, explained any changes that needed to happen, made sure we always knew what our options were, and the timeline was right on target. We could not have made a better decision than choosing Hammerhead !!
The end result is that we have a beautiful updated home that will bring us many years of enjoyment in Hilton Head, we greatly appreciated all of your efforts and would highly recommend you for any new construction or renovations. If we can help in any way, please let us know!
Thanks!

From our first meeting to discuss our remodeling ideas until the last nail was hammered, we knew we had made the right decision in selecting Jake Gartner of Hammerhead Custom Builders.

After purchasing our home in Sea Pines Plantation we decided to make some changes. Living out of state we were concerned to fine the right contractor that would be attentive to our needs and understand our concerns. Jake assured us that we would be 100% happy with everything and he was correct! The renovation was just short of a total remodel which included new ceilings, expanded updated kitchen, hard wood floors, 2 bathrooms, lighting, windows, whole house painting and fireplace with mantel.

He treated our project as if it was his own. We were very impressed with Jake’s attention to detail and quick response. The remodel was done in a timely manner and right on budget! We will not hesitate to use Hammerhead in the future and I would highly recommend Jake and his crew.
