I hired Distinct Builders for an addition and whole house renovation. I have worked with many contractors over the years and Distinct Builders was by far the most reliable. Their communication was frequent and honest, my calls were always returned, and I was kept up to date as to the status of the work nearly daily. Any and all issues were addressed promptly and professionally, and I felt that I could count on Distinct Builders to handle all aspects of the complicated work my house required. The work was high quality and we are very happy with the results.

I purchased a residential property in West Ashley and had it rezoned to commercial property. I hired Distinct Builders, LLC to serve as the general contractors on the renovation. Katie and Bruce Throckmorton have been professional and attentive and have managed every aspect of the project. I have been very pleased with their work and the outcome. I am happy to recommend Distinct Builders, LLC without hesitation.
