This is my unqualified endorsement of Philip Shelton and Shelton Construction. I was extremely satisfied with all aspects of the project including: estimates, timelines of completion, quality of construction, choices of subcontractors, construction costs and overall management by Mr. Shelton. I found Mr. Shelton to be a trustworthy and professional contractor with whom it was a pleasure to work.

Bill Wyker

As a structural engineer, I know that Philip builds things right. He doesn’t cut corners and he makes sure he understands the structural components and requirements before beginning the building process. Philip has a fantastic work ethic. He is always concerned with the end result of a project and ensures that quality work goes into all aspects of a project. Philip has excellent knowledge of how all the individual components are linked together to complete the project. He pays close attention to the visible aspects and structural details of his work.

We were completely satisfied with the work completed by Mr. Shelton and his company.

Bobby Lang

When I talked to my architect for the project, he immediately recommended Philip. Philip was extremely professional. I knew from the start that when I worked with him, his word was good. Things were finished in the timeline he gave. He arrived exactly when he said he would. He didn’t try to elevate the project costs. All of the materials that he used were high quality. I knew that he was doing the best job possible and keeping our interests as the central focus. Every suggestion he made was well reasoned and well planned. For every request we made, he completed the item promptly with no questions asked.

His work was simply outstanding. He did a very good job and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone in need of a skilled and professional builder.

Bill Marriott

I am very happy with the work of Shelton Construction.

Perry Keel

Philip really explains to clients what he’s doing within the project. He’s detail oriented and, at all stages of the building process, he’s looking out for his client’s best interest. When I recommend Philip, I always say that if you want to have the best completed project in the area and want someone who will guide you through your project, you should call Philip. His subcontracting group is by far the best in the area, which only adds value to his practice.

When you work with Philip, you know that his work will be done right the first time and won’t require you to call him back to the site after the project is closed.

Philip’s greatest strength is his integrity. Even when hampered by weather and conflicting schedules, Philip shows up and follows through exactly when he says he will. Philip has an elevated understanding of the designs he works with and advocates with strong recommendations for the client and the designer to create a cohesive team and end result. Philip’s understanding of functionality and design helps his homeowners get the best outcome for their project.

Sam Barnett, Architect

We would highly recommend Shelton Construction for any type of building work. They have done several jobs for us large and small. Philip stands for excellence in his work and the quality he provides in the finished product is proof of that. His workers are personable and have the same sense of pride in their work. Philip employs people who work together and with him.

We found Philip to be committed not only to the quality of his work, but to customer satisfaction, also. He worked with us regarding changes we wanted to make and if any problems arose, he was on top of everything quickly. We believe Philip to be a person of integrity and found him to be up front and trustworthy with us each time we have dealt with him.

Larry & Nancy Erwin

Philip’s attention to detail in the industry and ability to ask questions before starting a project allow him stand out. He has an excellent work ethic and makes sure that he consults us about the design throughout the execution. If you want a house or other structure built right, call Philip.

Jake Woods, Architect

I hired Philip because his reputation of good character preceded him. He has always done a good job and is meticulous in his work. Philip strives to serve the best interests of his clients and ensures that he and his staff explain the reasoning behind their project tactics and strategies. Shelton Construction has always been accessible and accommodating of my needs during renovation and construction.

Lyn Cook

We were building a new construction – our third custom home. Mr. Underwood, our architect, referred us to Philip for our build. Once we reviewed his website and did our research, we knew that he was going to be our builder from the beginning.

Philip is so detail-oriented and spent lots of prep time to make sure that we were informed about our house design and the construction process. As this was our third build, we could tell that Philip had a wide knowledge of the field and made time to answer all of our specific questions.

Considering that we designed this as our retirement home, Philip paid so much attention to the accessibility additions of our design—even doing extra when he wasn’t getting paid to do so.

Any time that we hear someone is looking for a builder, we recommend Philip. I would use him again myself!

Philip’s greatest gift was the relationship he built with us. He wasn’t just providing a service; he wanted to understand what we hoped our home would be and did everything he could to carry out those desires.

Susan Steele

“My Realtor recommended Philip to me. When I met with him for our initial consultation, I liked him immediately. As a retired teacher, I’m a pretty good judge of character. I knew that I could trust Philip to oversee my project while I was away and make tough decisions that would reflect my best interests.

Philip was always prompt in answering my phone calls and messages. I dropped by the office quite a bit throughout the process, and I always felt like the biggest client in town – even though my project wasn’t. Philip never discounted my opinions and always respected my budget.

Cindy Ham

When we interviewed potential builders and contractors for the remodel of our Huntsville home, we felt something was different about Philip. He was personable and had a connection to the project we needed him to complete. We were pleased with Philip’s renovation, as he was very helpful in selling our home more quickly, once it hit the market, through his suggestions and updates during the remodeling process.

Bob & Mary Gray

We live in a house that was built in 1836. When we wanted to add a garden home that would match the unique architectural style of our house, we called Philip.

Throughout the process, we knew that Philip was absolutely trustworthy. We never doubted his honesty. Through several home builds and remodeling projects, we quickly came to realize that Philip was the most conscientious contractor we had worked with.

He was extremely reliable and did extremely good work. He went to great pains to avoid cutting corners. The quality of his work was excellent. He used good products and worked with great people—an excellent combination in our book.

Since the completion of our project, we have referred Philip to our friends and family and would gladly use his services again.

Sherry & Dr. Charles Elliott

Philip has done extensive work for me. He is a great person to work with on construction projects. His subcontractors match his accommodating personality and reflect the same level of reliability and great quality of work. I have been pleased with the service and materials that Philip has presented.

Dr. Dale Trammell

A tornado struck our house and destroyed a majority of the structure. Philip rebuilt it and improved the quality of our home so much that it was better after the repair than before the tornado. Philip is a great guy. He will go out of his way to accommodate his clients and to do the best job possible.”

Stephanie & Daniel Porter

Philip is honest and has separated himself from other contractors. He continues to educate himself on important field topics, like energy efficiency, and has won awards that reflect that knowledge. I’ve always been 100% satisfied with the timeline and budget of my projects.

He is very thoughtful and leaves no stone unturned. His expertise has made him not only a great contractor, but also a great designer. From flow charts to smooth on-site operations, Philip is detailed in his work and makes sure that what he builds is done right.”

Bob Lewis

Philip Shelton has been doing work for me for 10 years. Philip, in all construction instances, is the first person I would call.

When I had severe water and hail damage during the holidays one year, Philip made sure that I was able to still live in my home. Philip worked around my schedule and my needs to accommodate me.”

Bernice Parker

Philip undertook a large office addition at our headquarters for the Alabama Baptist Children’s Home. Throughout this project and the other small renovations he’s done for us, Philip has always exceeded my expectations. When he constructed our new office space, he made the area accessible and to my specifications at a reasonable price that we, as a non-profit, could afford.

You can trust Philip. His workmanship yields top quality work and he always takes time to answer questions and explain the building process.”

Michael Smith

I had a retaining wall that needed immediate repair after tree roots had grown into my home’s foundation and began to hold water. I called an engineer first, who recommended Philip for the job. I have been pleased with the quality of the work that Philip did for me.

Tonya Hendrix

I appreciate the good job that Philip did and appreciate him being accessible.

Pat Smart

We were given great service! We certainly had an experience that will lead to projects in the future.
