Commonwealth Contracting can renovate, remodel or rebuild historic homes in the greater Charleston area. One of our more challenging projects was 263 St. Philip St., in historic Charleston, South Carolina.

Homeowner Vince Perna shares his experience working with Commonwealth Contracting:

My wife and I purchased an old dilapidated home in downtown Charleston as an investment. Commonwealth Contracting came in and explained what we were going to have to do and gave us a reasonable bid for our very challenging project.

Mike brought in a structural engineer, who promptly told us that the house had no structural value (aside from the extensive bracing), and that it needed to be completely demolished and rebuilt.

Mike worked diligently to meet with people from the neighborhood and gain their support and stated our case to the Charleston Board of Architectural Review (B.A.R.) and zoning boards. Mike got the city’s permission and he and his crew proceeded to build us a beautiful new home under some very difficult circumstances.

Mike kept us involved at every stage. They always made every effort to maintain a clean job site. We are thrilled with the finished product. We still use Commonwealth Contracting and recommend them as often as possible to friends and family.”  Homeowners, Vince and Jeanette Perna
