Testimonials

We recently purchased a spec house from Ken Palmer of Spectrum Builders. Ken builds a quality home at an affordable price. We also contracted with him to build our pool house and oversee the installation of the pool. Ken was able to stay on budget and find additional ways to save us money during the construction process. If any problems arose Ken was always available to make sure necessary subcontractors were called to correct it. Ken maintained excellent work ethics and always kept calm and collected demeanor about him. This can be difficult at times working with anxious new homeowners. We love our new home. Thanks Ken.

Spectrum Builders and Ken Palmer are the consummate professionals. Having worked in the professional services and consulting industries for nearly 30 years, it is rare to find an organization that practices its craft in such a highly competent manner. Moreover, having built several custom homes, the experience with Spectrum is by far the best my family and I have experienced. Almost anyone can hire a competent builder. Spectrum however couples building with innovation and attention to detail. Ken, particularly, is a highly effective communicator and visionary; he stays abreast of all the latest techniques, industry trends, and interior design concepts. His commitment to quality and his personal attention to the homeowner are unparalleled in this industry. Retaining Spectrum Builders and Ken Palmer is sure to exceed your expectations. I highly recommend Spectrum Builders and Ken Palmer, whether you are building a weekend cottage or the home of your dreams.

Ken Palmer and Spectrum Builders are topnotch. Our project was on hold. Having had to terminate our first builder for fraud and negligence, we researched and interviewed for several months to find someone ethical and trustworthy that we felt comfortable with to finish our home on Lake Keowee. We were introduced to Ken through our cabinet craftsman. Our project was about 80% complete at the time, or so we thought.

Ken worked diligently to finish the project uncovering numerous errors and encountering difficulties unforeseen at the outset. He took this all in stride and completed the project. The electrical problems, water lines, gas leaks, improper staining and sealing and missing materials made Ken’s job a challenge which he met head on. His professional and courteous attitude, expert knowledge, and patience in handling my project were commensurate with someone who cares deeply about the job they are asked to do.

Again, I want to express our satisfaction with the job that Ken Palmer and Spectrum Builders have done in the completion of our project.

I was first introduced to Spectrum Builders when I visited one of their open houses. I was very impressed with the craftsmanship I saw and decided to give them a call. From there, I met the builder Ken Palmer. Ken discuss what our needs where and then proceeded to led my wife and I through the entire process of building our own house. In just a short time we were breaking ground. Ken explained every step of the process, which gave us the peace of mind that most people building houses do not seem to have. The subcontractors Ken used were very knowledgably and easy to deal with as well. Our new neighbors commented to us almost on a daily basis how quickly and efficiently they worked. There was progress everyday and our house went up quickly. Also, Ken’s creativeness, foresight and knowledge of little details created a stress-free experience. Before we knew it, our house was completed. My family has been very satisfied with our new house and I would recommend Ken Palmer of Spectrum Builders to anyone thinking about building a home.

Dear Ken,

Let me start by saying we love our house! From the start it was a pleasure working with you and the designer, you really sought to understand our concepts, style and preferences and helped to improve and insure the design was on target. As you know our priorities were quality and cost. My personal friend who is a Florence, SC home builder with 30 years of experience remarked on the quality of the construction. We also were pleased the cost came in below the estimate. We also found your change order costs to be fair and transparent (some at no cost) unlike some builders who use this as an opportunity to increase their profits rather than satisfy the customer.

Working with you has been a great experience as you are professional and customer oriented. We truly believe you take as much pride in our home as we do, deservedly so. We grew to have complete trust in you as someone who is honest, has good judgment and has our collective interests in mind. This is why we choose you to do our landscaping without bidding it out in our normal fashion.

We would highly recommend you to anyone considering building a new residence or remodeling one. You will be the first one we go to if we have any future needs.

Looking for a reliable company to complete a project at your home? I would recommend Spectrum Builders. Having two additions added to my home I found the work completed not only professionally done but at a reasonable price compared to several other contractor available for my projects.

Dear Ken,

Just a quick note to thank you and your company for the work you did on my Mother’s house. We approached you with a unique and time sensitive situation. You promised that you could get the work done by the deadline and do it for less money than any other contractor. Well, you promised AND delivered on your word. The work was done quickly, it cost us half of any other quote that we had gotten, and it was a quality job that easily passed the home inspection. Thank you so much and I will not hesitate to recommend you and your company, Spectrum Builders, to others.
