Customer Testimonials

Our experience in working with Seaside Builders, Inc. was exceptional in all respects.  Sam Barker and his remodeling crew added a screened porch across the back of our house, enlarged the pool pump house and storage area, enclosed an outdoor shower, and performed electrical and plumbing upgrades. Sam and his crew were professional, knowledgeable, and courteous…a pleasure to work with.  In addition, the quality of all materials was excellent, as well as the workmanship.  Sam oversaw all aspects of the project, from dealing with the Monteray Shores Association Architectural Committee and our architect,  to obtaining all necessary permits, to securing our home and possessions for the duration of the remodeling.  The majority of the work was completed while we were out of town and we returned to find a job beautifully done.  An added benefit of using Seaside Builders, Inc. is that a cleaning service is called in upon completion of the work and you are left with a spotless, beautifully renovated home.  We recommend Seaside Builders, Inc. without reservation.

Good Morning Sam, I wanted to let you know how well the house is doing in Fairfield and how much joy it is giving Joan. Joan is a workaholic and I’ve been on her for years to do something for herself. As it turns out, now that the house big stuff has been done, this house has become Joan’s project, her release, sort of her fishing trip. She has hosted sleepovers with all of the great nieces and nephews. Our nephew and his boys have used it as weekend hunting lodge. We have also had several family dinners with 10-12 people. Through your efforts and patience, you have given us (especially Joan) a great gift.

I just wanted to let you know this and how much we appreciate what you have done.

Have a great weekend,

Good morning Sam.

The purpose of this note is to say “Thank You” for the recent repairs to our home in Kill Devil Hills. As you know we tried 2 other contractors to repair our water damage with no luck, but with your help and expertise we now have the problem corrected.

We appreciate your detailed investigation into our water damage issue and explaining to us what it would take to repair the damage and prevent future damage. The pictures you took before, during construction and after completing were very helpful in our understanding of the work you completed. We also appreciate you completing the work in the agreed time frame.

Lastly, we also appreciate being able to give you the keys to our home when we were not present so that you and your crew could continue with your work. We had complete trust in you and you lived up to our expectations.

Sam, again, we very much appreciate your excellent work and restoring our beloved home!
