Quite simply, Tom Martin and Son did a fantastic job building our new home. Their dedication to their craft was amazing. No shortcuts were taken and the quality of workmanship was impeccable. Their honesty and integrity are unquestionable. They were always willing to accept our input and ideas, but just as importantly they came up with many ideas of their own that greatly improved the finished product. We could not be happier with our result and would highly recommend Tom Martin and Son for any new home or remodeling project.

We used Tom Martin and Son LLC to renovate our 40 year old home on Seabrook Island. After getting four other bids and checking references, we had no doubt that we wanted to go with Tom Martin and Son. We are absolutely overwhelmed by the work they did to renovate our home. Instead of just getting a renovated home, we really got a new home. The professionalism and workmanship of this company was more than we ever expected. Tom and/or his son were on the job every single day, making sure everything was done to perfection. What was special were the suggestions made along the way to ensure a top quality end product. The companies recommended for selecting custom cabinetry, tile, paint colors, granite, and lighting were also top quality. The transformation of our home is truly remarkable. We consider Tom and Tommy friends and will continue to brag about our beautiful home, thanks to them.
JEANNE & JOE POPOVICH – SEABROOK ISLAND
For the past 15 years Tom and Tommy have been our “go to guys” for home repairs and remodeling. This includes the remodel of four bathrooms and a kitchen, a room addition, roofing, new windows and doors, and numerous other smaller projects.
We have always found them to be dependable, reliable, and reasonably priced. That’s why we keep coming back to them and recommending Tom Martin and Son to our friends and neighbors.

We can’t recommend Tom , Tommy , Dawn and crew enough. Ten years ago we purchased an older home in need of major renovation. New to Seabrook Island and from the north we had no idea who to turn to for “the job”. Thankfully we met Tom and Tommy. They guided us through the most challenging decisions we had ever made concerning our home. On time, honest and beyond our expectations the work was completed. Being an older home we still call the Martins on a pretty steady basis! They have worked on several other properties for us with the same craftsmanship and integrity. They are an amazing team and we consider them our friends.
NANCY & FRED SCHILDWACHTER – SEABROOK ISLAND
When we bought our home in Seabrook, it needed massive amounts of work. Our real estate agent, Stuart Spisak, recommended Tom Martin and Son. It was the best move we ever made. Tom and Tommy have done four projects for us over the past 6 years, totally renovating our home and adding an addition. The first two projects were done when we lived in Indianapolis. Being 750 miles away, there was never a time when we did not have full trust and confidence in the Martins. They always kept us informed.
Tom Martin and Son has a staff that are caring and hard working. They have become friends. I have total confidence in the Martins and would never think of using anyone else. To that point, we have recommended Tom Martin and Son to our friends and none of them have ever been disappointed. If you want excellent work, done on time with trustworthy people, use the Martins and their staff.
KEVIN & JODY GARVEY – SEABROOK ISLAND
Tom Martin & Son recently completed a total renovation of an old house for us on Seabrook Island. A few years ago, I watched the renovation of the house of some friends which was taking place across the golf course from my villa. I remarked to my husband that if we ever needed work done in the future, that group of contractors would be my choice. The homeowners were not in Seabrook, and the workmen arrived every day at the same time, worked hard all day, and cleaned up the site before ending for the day–and the day never ended early! So when we bought a house that needed complete renovation, Stuart Spisak, our real estate agent, told us that there was one company which he recommended. I replied, “I already know who I want–whatever company worked on Garvey’s house is the one I am going to hire.” Turns out we were both talking about Tom Martin. To say that we are thrilled with our home and indeed were thrilled with the entire process is the truth. Tom, Tommy, and Jill Frey (brought aboard by Tom and a brilliant designer as well as a wonderful person) listened to us, understood our dream for the house, kept us informed, and were as honest, hard working, creative and kind as they could be. And they seem to attract sub-contractors as excellent as they are. Each new group was as talented and motivated as the last. All were a joy to work with. And when the job was completed-exactly when we were told it would be- Tom told us that they would be available at any time in the future to perfect anything that might need it, or to give us some help with anything around the house. I should add that Dawn Martin was terrific with answering questions, sending detailed billing, and getting back to us. I cannot recommend this group enough. As others have said in their reviews, we now consider the Martins valued friends. I don’t think there is any higher praise than that, after a nine month renovation which presented them with a few challenges. The Martins are truly good people. as well as excellent at what they do.

How can we ever thank you enough for the incredible job you did renovating our daughter’s house! As my husband says, “Tom is INTEGRITY! There isn’t anything that we asked him to do that he didn’t exceed our expectations!” You came in under budget and you completed the project on time!
We have had some unpleasant experiences in the past with construction, but working with you was FUN! You always had a positive attitude and were so committed to our project. You are a craftsman, indeed, who seems to take pride in your work! You became our friend through the process, and we look forward to working with you again in the future!
JEAN FELDMAN, PHD – SEABROOK ISLAND
How can we ever thank you for building Holly’s “dream home”! You reflect your Christian beliefs in your integrity, ethics, and character. You have gone above and beyond what we could hope for, and we hope we will be able to pass on the “good word” about you!
Thank you for sharing your talents with us. You truly are a craftsman!
JOHN FELDMAN – SEABROOK ISLAND
Our holidays were made warmer by the beautiful fireplace your workers created. From mirror removal, lighting, repairs, painting, and artful mantel, everything went smoothly and to our satisfaction.
It was a pleasure dealing with you and Brad to design the perfect focal point for our living room. The cabinet doors and special trim complete the look we wanted. Brad is a true craftsman.
We would happily recommend your company to others and look forward to using your expert services again.
DONNA & JIM LAWRENCE – SEABROOK ISLAND
Our 19 year relationship with Tom Martin, and Tom Martin & Son, includes not only the construction of our home but every addition and renovation made since our home on Seabrook Island was built. During that time frame we have added a 3rd floor (2 Bedrooms, 2 full baths, morning room, porch) as well as a back porch and deck. We have renovated/ remodeled our kitchen, family room, dining room, living room, master bedroom, master bath, two guest bedrooms and garage area. Our home has been repainted/stained both inside and out. In essence, you could say that Tom Martin and Son built our 5 bedroom , 4.5 bath home twice.
Needless to say, we have found their workmanship to be timely, of the highest quality, competitively priced, and they perform each project as though it were being done to their own home… a rare quality indeed. With our primary residence 720 miles removed from Seabrook, having someone that we can trust is truly invaluable. And maybe most importantly to us… a relationship spanning 19 years that began as owner-builder has evolved into owner-builder-friend.
BLAIR & LINDA LACOUR – SEABROOK ISLAND
We were very pleased to have Tom Martin and Son work extensively on our Spinnaker at Seabrook Island. The firm was recommended by a contact on Seabrook Island and we started off with a small project. The great work and project management provided by Tom Martin and Son led us to have them completely refurbish the exterior of our Spinnaker—new siding, roof, decks, and converting the screened in porch to a sunroom. The follow-up was excellent. We lived out of state and Tom was excellent in sending pictures and following up on the phone with information about the project and any issues encountered. The following year we had the baths redone and this was another great experience. The next year we had the kitchen completely redone, including some creativity by Tom for handling the doors to the sunroom from both the kitchen and bedroom. We felt very comfortable in being out of town and having Tom Martin and Son manage the project including subcontractors and the suppliers. We cannot say enough about the professionalism and honesty of Tom Martin and Son!
JOHN & KAREN VORIS – SEABROOK ISLAND
We recently completed a master bath renovation, hardwood floors added to bedroom and bath, refinishing of all hardwood floors and complete redo of all painting throughout the main floor. It required all furniture be removed and the remaining section of the house sealed off. Tom and Tommy Martin did an outstanding job! They kept to a schedule, answered all our questions and concerns! They treated our home with respect and brought in outstanding craftsmen. We couldn’t be more pleased!
MARJORIE & STEVE BOTTCHER – SEABROOK ISLAND
We used Tom Martin for two major projects. Two years ago we resided the house and expanded the sunroom. This year we remodeled the kitchen. We are extremely pleased with both projects. Tom and Tommy are a joy to work with. I also liked that they provided suggestions for improving on my original ideas. Their work is top notch. Lastly, I like that they use other local small business owners for their sub contractors.
CURT & SUSAN MARCOTT – SEABROOK ISLAND
Worked with Tom Martin on our kitchen remodel. He is professional and easy to work with. What sets him apart from others, however, is the quality of the workmanship and his attention to detail. His subcontractors are amazing and both Tom and Tommy regularly check in to make sure things are going as planned. My kitchen is a dream to work in. He worked seamlessly with the designer and decorator to achieve one of a kind details. His crew is dependable and the work site clean and tidy at the end of the day. We liked his work so much that we are going to embark on bathroom renovations and updates with him. If you’re looking for someone to update your house this is the company!!
