Frank & Joy Manning - Palmetto Dunes and Landcaster, PA
We couldn’t be happier with the home that Bunting Construction built for us in Palmetto Dunes! When we decided to tear down our old home and rebuild we were faced with a number of challenges, not least of which was distance. Living about 700 miles away, we needed a builder we could trust and who understood our vision for our house. We interviewed five reputable builders, but Scott stood out. His enthusiasm, attention to detail and commitment to quality became quickly obvious to us. We toured several homes he built and were very impressed. Coincidentally, he had built a home for an acquaintance of ours, and this individual confirmed our impressions.
Fun is not necessarily a word you would use when describing the building process but Scott made the whole experience enjoyable. He understands the needs of the out-of-town owner. Being able to follow the construction of your home by monitoring his website is fantastic. We became addicted to checking out the photos! Scott really kept them up to date and rarely did a few days go by without more pictures being posted. Scott was very responsive throughout; emails were returned within minutes! When we came down to see things first-hand, Scott devoted his weekends to us. He knows how to navigate the ARB, his subcontractors are top-quality and he keeps his construction site tidy.
In summary, we couldn’t recommend Scott enough! Rest assured, you’ll end up with a quality home from a builder who takes pride in his work and will stand by it. Further, he’ll make the process enjoyable, and you may even get a few trips on his boat! We had so much fun, we’re thinking of building another.

"As we looked at and considered several of the top ranked builders on Hilton Head Island to build our "Custom One of a Kind" Beach Front Home it became apparent to us that Scott was our choice given the examples we were shown and more so the techniques and craftsmanship that would go into our home. The top builders often use some of the same subcontractors and we found the real differentiator to be the "project management" that Scott brings to the project in first himself and his manager who's on site during the process assuring the attention to detail and follow through to make the experience and outcome truly "Custom"... for example we wanted to construct a home that will stand up and face a Category "four" hurricane....from the foundation to the roof and he was the only one that was willing to take that on and bring in the expertise to accomplish it within costs parameters that others could not accomplish or were willing to put such a guarantee in place.
When all was said and done folks like the Hilton Head construction Inspections group asked for permission to bring their staff through our home as it was truly one of a kind and without question the "finest home on the island'....many others contractors and suppliers on the project has stated the same and the awards that Bunting Company has received speak for themselves....additionally the insurance and financial appraisers have all stated that local comparable homes are simply not available and the closest is in "Old Palm Beach"... just recently we had visitors from Christie's Estate Real Estate visit our home and they labeled it "The finest Home in the Low Country"... suspect you've gotten the impression we (I) am crazy about our home and that is correct. We are equally crazy about Scott Bunting and his finished product and more importantly the manner in which he lives with his projects after the sale and take care of his homes as if they are his.... In a big sense they are and that separates Scott from the others.

“We love this house.” That is what my husband and I say every time we arrive at our Sea Pines home. This is our third year in the house and we are still saying it!
Four years ago, we explored the possibility of renovating. Living 950 miles away and knowing nothing about building a house, what could have been an overwhelming process was not because of Scott and his team. Scott immediately understood the type of house we wanted – a modern retro beach cottage.
Scott stayed on our timeline and budget, but just as important he made the entire process fun. His attention to the smallest detail was amazing. We are still fascinated by his creative use of materials. When you live so far away you have just trust your builder to make good decisions for you. Because Scott took the time to really get to know us, we always trusted him to make those decisions. Scott takes personal care to make sure the worksite is safe tidy and as unobtrusive to neighbors as possible. His subs are equally considerate. We are thrilled with our home and had fun working with Scott. We couldn’t recommend Scott and Bunting Construction Company any more highly.

“My husband Mike and I met Scott Bunting when we were interviewing contractors for a major remodel of our Long Cove home some 8 years ago. We knew immediately when we met Scott he was our man. Since then Scott and his company have completed many remodeling projects for us. The thing I tell people about Scott is that my husband and I don't really have to worry about a thing when Scott is involved as he is very picky about how things are done and that they are done right. Our primary home is some 650 miles away so we can't always be there to watch every little thing and with Scott and his subs, you really don't have to! We appreciate his honesty and integrity... and his funny sense of humor. And we are still friends after multiple projects. That says a lot.”

“Our Harbour Town villa was completely renovated by Bunting Construction Company in a three phase project. We are delighted with the end result, which has drawn praise from friends and acquaintances. Scott Bunting was involved in all aspects of the project, including developing initial ideas, detailed planning, construction and completion of the work. Of particular importance to us, Scott was very creative in suggesting ideas to enhance our plans as the project proceeded, and he always made himself available to discuss progress to date and potential change orders. His staff and the construction workers were courteous, friendly and easy to work with. We appreciated Scott’s willingness to make change orders along the way in order to reflect our frequent change of mind. His primary objective was to ensure that the end result was high quality and to our liking. Although we were not living in Hilton Head while the construction work was occurring, Bunting Construction Company provided pictures of the progress on the private section of their web site, and were available to meet on our schedule. We are very happy that our project was performed by Bunting Construction Company.”

“When we first contacted Bunting Construction, we did so because we had witnessed the quality of work on a friend's new house. Frankly we were awed by the imagination and the attention to detail, but we were afraid that the small project we had, redoing three bathrooms, would not get a place in line. Not the case. Scott Bunting personally attended to our ideas, came up with a better(and less expensive) way to do the work, and promised us the finished product within the timeframe we needed it done. Whoever said that things don't get done quickly down here has not met Scott. Although we expanded the project, Bunting Construction was in and out the door in three weeks. What were ancient. dingy bathrooms became showcase stylish, bright, and innovative bathroom "suites". All of the people working for Bunting were professional, courteous, neat, and precise. When the work was done, Scott and his representative came by to check the workmanship and functionality of the components. In short, our experience with Bunting Construction was outstanding.”
