Dan & Julee Schwieger

"When we started our journey to build our new home, we looked at several builders in the area before we selected Porter Construction. Scott Porter differentiated himself from the others as he was honest, forthcoming, energetic, passionate about his work and cared about what my family wanted in a home. Scott worked with us from the design stage and with the architect up until the day he delivered our home. During the process several things really impressed us about Scott and his team. First, Scott was on the build site almost every day and had a representative there 100% of the time making sure the work was done to Porter Constructions standards. Second, Scott stayed in constant contact with us to ensure the home was meeting our standards throughout the build. Third, he was flexible to changes we wanted to make and wasn't afraid to make recommendations to us during the process to enhance our home. Lastly, he delivered the project on budget and on time.

We are very proud of our new home and from the comments we’ve received it is clear that Scott has built a masterpiece that will endure time. My wife and I would highly recommend Scott and Porter Construction to anyone looking to build their dream home."

Reid Huber & Donielle Larson

"Scott Porter orchestrated the construction of a beautiful renovation and addition to our Wilmington home, and we can’t say enough about his professionalism, attention to detail, and integrity. From our initial negotiations with the governing Historical Review Board through complex, on-site geotechnical engineering considerations, Scott always represented us and our interests as though they were his own. His open-lines of communication, proactive identification of options, and exacting adherence to our budget resulted in a project that was just as rewarding to complete as it was to conceptualize, plan and enjoy afterward. Scott is a rarity in the field of builders and general contractors - years of experience with ready access to many of the most high-skilled tradesman around, coupled with an exceedingly sharp eye for design and aesthetics and uncompromising principles."

"The ideal contractor is knowledgeable, thorough, well organized, accurate and honest. Scott is all these and is an extremely good and imaginative problem solver. The subs were skilled, tidy and on schedule. Our bath renovation exceeded my greatest expectations and best of all, we were under budget. Who could ask for more?"

Bill Lafferty

"I had the pleasure of working with Scott on the complete renovation of a 100 year old house in the Highlands. From the first meeting I knew we would have a successful project because Scott had many creative and practical ideas that enhanced the value of the job. He even revised our floor plan to make it more efficient and aesthetically pleasing. His bid was complete, and I was very happy with the way he handled the changes and unforeseen items that come with taking an old house down to the studs and replacing every system and finish. The jobsite was maintained immaculately, and as promised, Scott had his crew on the job every day. I could usually find him on site and he answered every call, question, and concern promptly. The project schedule was maintained and the work was completed on time. I couldn't be happier with the outcome and hope to work with Scott and his team again."

Chris and Catherine Gaul

"We couldn't be happier with the transformation that Porter Construction helped orchestrate for our home. Scott turned our kitchen and master bath from outdated and bland to something very stylish and functional. Like most homeowners, we were terrified to undertake a project that would have both our kitchen and master bath out of commission, but Scott really made it as painless a process as possible. Unforeseen complications did not stall completion of the job as Scott was able to use his experience and expertise to create timely workarounds. Scott was at the job site every day or readily available by phone to answer any concerns. He has impeccable taste and an amazing eye for how all of the elements would come together for the final product. We could not be happier with our experience with Scott. He started out a stranger at the beginning of the project and became a dear friend to us by the end. We always recommend him to anyone with construction needs."

The level of craftsmanship is evident throughout, as well as the attention to even the smallest of details. The professionalism and service provided by Scott and his crew, during and after the completion of the job, has been remarkable. Without a doubt, we will use Porter Construction for our next renovation project."

Laurie and Todd Miller

"Scott has completed two projects for us, which have had a huge impact on the comfort and design of our 1950's ranch home. He renovated the master bath in 2011, creating an elegant and functional bathroom and expanding the closet space. In 2013, we invited Scott back to renovate a second bathroom which has become a showpiece, as well as a very functional space for our teenage daughter. Both renovations include quality custom cabinetry, natural stone and marble, high-end plumbing fixtures and beautiful lighting. Scott has both a great eye for design and the ability to help clients access beautiful materials at the best price. He listened to our ideas and wishes, incorporating them into a finished product that surpassed our expectations."
