What Our Clients Are Saying

We have been helping clients with their custom home building and remodeling projects for over a decade and are thankful for their kind words. We are passionate about providing each client with the best service, design, and value possible.

We have had an amazing experience with Sandifer design and build. From the very beginning they believed in our vision, offered insight, and made our dreams a reality!! Many other companies said what we wanted was too difficult, but Sandifer said anything is possible. Lisa was great in helping me with the design, and Edward was more than wonderful to work with! He helped me every step of the way and made sure everyone did an excellent job and that I was happy with the progress. Thank you Edward!! They were excellent and made sure that any last detail or concern was addressed. i could not be happier or recommend a better builder. Please check them out. Thank you Team Sanifer!! -- Review from Houzz


We have used Sandifer for two home improvement projects and would not hesitate to use them again. Communication was smooth throughout each project cycle and their trades/subs are professional and truly skilled at their crafts. The results were beautiful! -- Review from Houzz


We couldn’t be happier with our new construction, river view home. Nick and team are exceptional. They were responsive, particular and genuinely interested in ensuring we were happy with the final product. -- Review from Houzz


We’ve just completed a renovation project on our home in Pablo Creek Reserve by Sandifer Design Build. From the first encounter with Nick and Chelsea Sandifer to our design consultant, Lisa Carrothers to our site Supervisor Edward Lopez and their entire staff the project was done on time, on budget with minimal disruption and to our complete satisfaction. In any renovation project there are always unexpected issues and surprises but thanks to Edward Lopez he was always there to correct course or find solutions to all our problems and challenges! I highly recommend Sandifer Design Build to anyone contemplating renovations to your home. We are a very happy, very satisfied client!!! -- Review from Houzz

Barry Vaughn

Our experience with Sandifer Design and Build was a good one. We have gone through many remodel projects, there are always surprises and complications. The Sandifer team responded right away to any concern or problem. Lisa the designer was easy to work with and had good suggestions to best solve design issues and worked to stay on budget. Edward the project manager was always quick to respond to any inquiry or concern and took care of issues right away. It was a relief to know someone was always on top of things! -- Review from Houzz


Having completed a number of home renovation projects while living in the Washington, DC area, we had a very specific idea of what we wanted from a design and construction firm in the Jacksonville area. From the start, Nick Sandifer and his team felt like the perfect match for what we were looking for in terms of style, culture and workmanship. And the process and final product rang true to our standards and expectations of a first floor remodel of our 1990s home. Throughout the initial discovery and specs stages, the Sandifer team and their fantastic design partner worked seamlessly with us to pull together a plan of action that worked within our budget but didn’t cut corners on quality or creativity. When the real work began, we appreciated the great care and attention the Sandifer team and their subcontractors gave to our family living and working upstairs in the home, particularly during the throes of demolition, electrical and structural work as well as plumbing. The subcontractors’ attendance and work ethic were phenomenal, and we got to know many of them along the way — you could tell many of them felt pride in being part of the Sandifer family and it showed in their loyalty and craftsmanship. We were also impressed by how the Sandifer team worked through supply chain constraints in what was a very interesting year to be doing a large construction project – they were always on top of things by having options at the quick and ready for us every step of the way. Lastly, and most importantly, our site foreman, Edward, might very well be the most impressive person we’ve worked with. He was always present, incredibly positive, and ready to jump in at a moment's notice to solve a problem or advance the project with whatever was needed. It's funny, but the house is so quiet now and we find ourselves oddly missing all of our daily visitors, especially Edward. We consider him a friend now and our two young kids have adopted him as part of our family. In summary, you are getting more than just “a contractor” with the Sandifer team. They'll take their business — which very much seems to be a culture of family — and they'll blend it seamlessly into yours, getting you to the final product in your beautiful new / remodeled home that you so desire. We are already planning for phase 2 and will look no further than Nick Sandifer and team. Simply put, they are well deserving of our highest recommendation!

Brian P Johnston

Great experience. It's a small company and I actually had the owner's cell phone number. He would send me texts for any questions he had and vice versa. You would not have that level of communication with a large company. The project turned out very nice and Nick Sandifer was always concerned that I was happy with the progress..

Forrest Quiggle

Sandifer Custom Homes converted my screened-in patio to a sunroom. They did a great job at both the design and construction. Nick, the contractor was very responsive to my requests and his subcontractors did high quality work. I recommend them without reservation.

Andras Khoor

The Sandifer team, lead by Edward Lopez, did a major remodel of our home. We completely renovated our kitchen with the all new appliances and cabinets and we added a walk-in pantry, laundry room and half bath, adding 600 square feet under roof. We sealed and painted the entire exterior. All started and finished in 4 months and exactly on budget. Edward, the project manager, was excellent and on top of the sub-contractors. I have had 10 neighbors compliment me on the renovation work. Just Excellent!

Jerry Sarvadi

Nick Sandifer and his team guided us thru the renovated of our master bathroom, the boys’ Jack and Jill bathroom, and a powder room. We were extremely nervous and considered this a significant emotional event given a recent nightmare experience with a different contractor who took our money but left our outdoor project unfinished and in disarray. Sandifer Design Build is the model of professionalism and integrity. Lisa Carrothers’ design perfectly captured the vision we had for a luxurious master bath. Despite our relatively nebulous description, she designed a sanctuary for us, a playful space for the JJ, and a comfortable powder room for visitors. Edward Lopez, the project manager, organized and directed a team of subcontractors while communicating directly with us precisely who, what, when and where workers would be in our home. They cleaned and cleared any debris on a daily basis. Nick holds his team accountable for the highest standard of performance. The bones and beauty of our new bathrooms is truly remarkable. There is a time honored saying that you get what you pay for. Sandifer Design Build craftsmanship, attention to detail, and customer service is worth every penny. I would recommend Sandifer Design Build without hesitation.

Darla March

Nick and his team guided us through the remodel of our kitchen, bathroom amd back porch. We love the result and have signed them on to renovate another bathroom and front porch. Thank you Nick!!!!


Sandifer Design Build did a complete renovation in our home, the project included the entire downstairs of our home including a new kitchen, breakfast room, new floors, walls removed and added. The scope of the work was large but from our first meeting to the final day the entire team worked to being the project in on time and on budget. Nick, Larry and all the team including subs were always at my home on time, courteous, kept the job site immaculate everyday as we were living in the house at the same time. They went above and beyond, took on added projects I threw at them and completed the entire project with enthusiasm and pride in their work. Our home is a reflection of the detail oriented work that they did, it is everything we dreamed of and more. I would highly recommend this company and those who work with them for any new build or remodel, no job is too small or big. They are professional, comfortable to be around, clean, polite and we have developed more than a once off relationship, their continued contact for other projects I have needed has been impressive, once a client, they are always there for you.. It is rare to find such professionals who feel like family after your project has been done, I could not recommend them more. Simply the best.


My wife and I have remodeled homes numerous times, so Sandifer's project was far from our first rodeo. At the outset, I'll admit I was not familiar with Sandifer's method of initiating a project. The expression "measure twice, cut once" would describe it. They put extensive design work in prior to starting (and charged a well-worth-it fee for that work), and emerged with an "all-in" quote for the now well defined project. This is as compared to the "a la carte cost build-up" many contractors use, or worse, the "let's start and we'll figure it out along the way" approach (we've experienced both . . . mostly poor experiences). Sandifer has a superb design team, particularly in the interior space usage, kitchen/cabinet, and interior design areas. You don't need to bring your own designer; Sandifer has that covered. Sandifer's "go-to" subcontractors are all very professional and skilled at their trades ..... and should it happen that one is not fully on top of their game, they see it, and fix it expeditiously. They establish a very clear contract with measurable payment points, and have a "first-in-my-experience" understandable change order system - no surprises! So as craftsmen/businessmen, they excel. But they have more: superb customer relations. To a person Sandifer has great people to work with. To the client, the Project Manager has 80+% of the client contact. Our project manager (Edward) was the best of any job we have done in the last 30 years of remodeling - diligent, on top of the details, professional, and congenial . . but firm with the subs if they needed "some encouragement". Lisa in design, Lenny behind the scenes, and Nick ("the big boss" - always there when needed) rounded out the Team. I'd recommend Sandifer to my best of friends without hesitation . . they won't be disappointed.

Sandifer Design Build Remodel is defined by professionalism, customer service, attention to detail, and quality construction results. Owner, Nick Sandifer, was hands on with our renovation and provided highly qualified subcontractors who worked closely with us to deliver just what we wanted. Sandifer’s construction team was right on schedule and they were respectful and trustworthy throughout the process. We are so proud of our second home in Ponte Vedra Beach and highly recommend Sandifer Design Build Remodel.

Lisa S.

We hired Nick and his team to build a fully covered outdoor addition, including an outdoor fireplace, sitting and dining areas, outdoor shower, storage closet and outdoor kitchen. From the design phase to completion everyone was helpful and accommodating. Nick worked hard to come up with cost effective design choices that still gave us exactly what we wanted. If an issue came up multiple solutions were presented and the best solution quickly implemented. Everyone arrived on time per schedule and performed quality work. The team was very flexible with the design changes from our side. Months after the project was complete and we needed help with hurricane damage to the roof, Nick did not hesitate to arrange someone to come out inspect and fix the damage. Overall a very positive experience, would definitely use Sandifer Design Build Remodel for another project.

Yevgen P.

This is our second time working with Sandifer Design Build Remodel, this time for a master bath renovation. It is always a pleasure working with Nick and his team of professionals. Customer satisfaction and staying on schedule are Nick's highest priorities. We plan to hire him again in the near future for our kitchen remodel.

Nancy Quick

Nick is very professional, conscientious, reliable, and honest. We had an excellent experience with him throughout this project. The project superintendent, Larry was also excellent. He was certainly on top of everything going on and attentive to our requests. Nick's team of subcontractors were of high quality and professional. I felt very comfortable around all of these people which is not always the case with other projects we have been a part of. We highly recommend Nick Sandifer and will certainly utilize his services again in the future.

Jennifer Spires

Nick Sandifer and his team did an outstanding job repairing the side of my house and coordinating the repair of my tile roof. He is very detail oriented and coordinated every facet of the repairs. His people were always on time, polite and did superb work. I highly recommend Sandifer Design Build Remodel to anyone looking to build a house or in need of repairs.

Bob K

We wanted our house to have more of an open concept in the main living area, so we hired Sandifer Design Build Remodel to help us remove a load bearing wall between the living room and the dining room. This was a major engineering project since the wall supported the weight of the roof and the wall opening spanned over 30ft. The work involved the installation of LVL beams, support columns, electrical, drywall, paint and tile repair. Sandifer and his team were fantastic from start to finish. His team patiently answered all of our questions and were always conscious to make the project comfortable for my family. We look forward to working with Sandifer Design Build Remodel on future projects.

Robert McGuinness

Nick rebuilt a 3rd Floor deck we were having issues with. I really appreciated the communication and the respect he showed my property. Quality work! Nick has a good eye for detail and caught and corrected issues that I had overlooked. I would definitely hire them again for any remodel work we may have in the future!

Bill Kincaid

Nick Sandifer and his team did a beautiful job remodeling our kitchen and outside living space. We couldn’t have been happier with the result. Nick is extremely respectful, easy to work with and professional.

Claudia Wallace

Sandifer Design Build Remodel built our brand new home from the ground up. They worked with us to stay within our budget while paying close attention to the details. They listened to our needs and wants and customized it just how we wanted. I appreciate the fact that they were and continue to be in contact with us making sure we are happy with the product.

Brian & Katie Hemingway

Nick was a fantastic builder for our remodeling project. He had quality subcontractors and was extremely professional and courteous. We had multiple projects going on at one time and Nick worked diligently to ensure the entire project got completed in a timely fashion.

Ilyse Vaughn

This company was very quick to complete the work I hired them for. They were to demo lattice under a porch area, replace with hardi panels and a couple vents and painted. Looks great!

Teresa Perry

We hired Nick and Team to create a new addition to our classic San Marco Home and other renovations. Addition included a new breakfast nook, half bath, office, laundry room, and guest bedroom. Renovation included a brand new (awesome!) kitchen, master bathroom, and guest bathroom. This was not an easy task due to the age of the house (75 years old). Electric, HVAC, plumbing, you name it had to be relocated and upgraded. After the dust has settled, we are enjoying our home more than we could have imagined. The quality of work is absolutely impressive. They matched existing 75 year old hardwood floors with brand new hardwood floors in the new areas. You can't see where the originals stop and the new begins! Plus matching the trim, moldings, doors, etc. was not an easy task. On a personal level, they were very helpful and considerate knowing a small family of four was living in the house during this adventure. I definitely recommend Sandifer Design Build Remodel.

Ryan Rafferty

When we purchased our home, there were several items that needed to be addressed prior to move-in. Sandifer Design Build Remodel was quick to respond and the end product was wonderful! Highly recommend. We've worked on several other projects since then and are always pleased with the end product.

Sara Hall

We had an addition to our home - a closet - 9-1/2 x 11-1/2. Additionally, we had to have a roof tie in from a room next to the addition. We were also dealing with a homeowners association. So everything had to be exact.  Sandifer Design Build Remodel did the project for us. The pricing was very reasonable, the work was excellent and the workers were very nice and helpful - on time and worked hard. We never had any complaints or issues about any of the work.

Vanessa Danford

Sandifer Design Build Remodel did a beautiful job on our bathroom remodel. Nick was very professional and quick to respond to all of our questions. He listened to all of our ideas and then came back with layout ideas that we hadn't even thought of, that completely transformed the space. All of the subcontractors were great to work with. Nick was in constant communication with us and we are extremely happy with the end result. They even cleaned several rooms of the house when the project was complete. I would definitely use Sandifer Design Build Remodel in the future and will definitely recommend them to friends and family.

Penny Blanton

Since buying our house, my wife and I envisioned a new kitchen. The changes we imagined seemed overwhelming (construction, tile, grouting, painting, electrical, plumbing, permits, etc.). Weeks ago, we called three General Contractors for comparison and guidance. We chose Nick Sandifer of Sandifer Design Build Remodel. He eased our overwhelmed nerves with his confidence that he could handle the job in a timely manner. In addition to our ideas, he had creative vision and enhanced what we saw. After we were contracted for our kitchen, we decided to redesign our foyer and master bath. There were naturally unforeseen snags along the way, but Nick smoothed over the rough edges until we were pleased. Subcontractors were courteous, accommodating, and skilled craftsmen. Nick Sandifer left us with stellar performance on our home remodel. When he says, “If you can imagine it, we can build it,” believe that! Thank you, Nick, and your team, for an outstanding “Live” HGTV experience. We love the results and give you our highest references.

Terry & Wendy Smith

Nick Sandifer is knowledgeable, professional, and honest. He took great pains and kept things progressing quickly with our small job ( a small bathroom remodel and dining room paint and wood floor refinish). He constantly stayed in touch which is often hard to find in this industry. I have already recommended him and plan on using him in the future as our needs change. I will miss his sunny, courteous disposition and his wit now that our job has concluded.

Mrs. Thornton

Nick Sandifer was a pleasure to work with. He was very professional, had great ideas and took care of everything as it came up. He was very knowledgeable on design, color etc. My bathroom remodel is just beautiful, I would definitely recommend Nick to my family and friends.

Mrs. Yancigay

Sandifer Design Build Remodel works with my company in several capacities. They build entrance features for new communities; perform general maintenance for our rentals; and Nick volunteers with our company President serving those in need.  Nick is what I like to refer to as a "one stop shop." I can count on him to look at all phases of our projects and make sure each detail is handled in a professional manner. I trust him to make decisions without looking at his proposed ideas. I have not been disappointed yet.  On a personal note, Nick is respectful and courteous. He definitely wants his customers to be satisfied with his services. You can tell by the quality of his work the personal pride he takes at what he accomplishes.

Kathy Williford

Professional and great communication. It feels like Nick(owner) has your best interest at heart. He's a bit of a perfectionist and he always follows up behind his team. For my next major project on my home I will definitely use Sandifer again.

Julie Durden

Nick Sandifer and his team did an extraordinary job on my master bath remodel. The process was seamless and the service was over-the-top friendly and accommodating. I would recommend Sandifer Design Build Remodel to anyone looking for exceptional quality and service!

Ashley Mederos

Nick Sandifer was excellent to work with on our master bathroom remodel. He always kept us apprised of the work schedule and went out of his way to make sure we were satisfied with everything. We were also very pleased with the quality work, promptness, and attitude of his contractors. If you are looking for a custom builder who wants you to be a satisfied customer, go with Sandifer Design Build Remodel. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Mary Habres

Sandifer Design Build Remodel worked on an outdoor project for us which was creating a summer kitchen, fence work, trellis woodwork and appliances. Nick was very organized, always reachable, and very easy to work with. They do beautiful work and I would highly recommend. The kitchen came out beautiful!

Louisa Isaacs

Sandifer Design Build Remodel was great to work with on the build out of my office. As a designer in the community I can say that Nick was very easy to work with, knowledgeable, and a good communicator. He did a great job at organizing subs and keeping the project on track. I would highly recommend Sandifer Design Build Remodel.

Courtney Stoner Interior Design

Sandifer was hired to build a summer kitchen/cabana, outdoor shower, and privacy fence to be completed to compliment the pool that was also under construction. Nick and his crew did a wonderful job! From his design, layout, and follow through…we always knew we were in good hands! His ideas were wonderful and we would recommend him to anyone looking for someone they can trust and have the job done right. Even as we added things we wanted along the way, he was happy to meet and exceed our needs! I would hire him again in a second!! We are thrilled!

Heather Kelley

After my mom moved in with us we found that we needed additional space. Nick came out and we simply gave him some very general ideas of what we like. He took our ideas and his knowledge and went to work. Leaving all the final decisions up to us, he offered some very good ideas and suggestions that we had never even thought of.  He began the process in a timely manner, had very competent workers and subs. Everything was completed to detail. Then at the end of the project, came through and cleaned several rooms of the house very thoroughly.  I would highly recommend Sandifer Design Build Remodel for any and all of your contractor needs.

Happy Homeowner

We had a cabana built to go with our new pool. Nick and his crew did a great job! They were very professional and easy to work with. Nick's communication with me was key. He always told me what to expect, sent pictures and was easy to get hold of. We are very pleased with the outcome.

Happy Homeowner

Sandifer Design Build Remodel was fantastic! We did a large renovation to update our home - kitchen, family room, master bedroom and master bath. SCH met all of our needs: beautiful design, quality workmanship, work done on time, quick response/solutions to our requests and needs, excellent subs, and a beautiful end product. Sandifer Design Build Remodel worked so well with us, as well as with all the subs.  Our new rooms are beyond our expectations - thank you!


Sandifer Design Build Remodel designed and built a screen enclosed summer kitchen that exceeded our expectations. Nick worked diligently to provide a quality product that we envisioned within our budget. He kept us informed throughout the entire process and stayed on schedule. Customer service was excellent. Workmanship and attention to detail were incredible. Nick was very professional, knowledgeable, timely and neat. The sub-contractors he used were top-notch. We plan to use Sandifer on future projects.

Jeanie Strong

Our initial intent was to act as our own general contractor for the remodel of the downstairs portion of our home (kitchen remodel, painting, wood floors, electrical and plumbing). However, once we met Nick and discussed our plans with him, we knew just from the way he listened to us, the questions he asked, and the ideas he put forward, that we would be much better off with him handling the work rather than us....and we were right. He handled all the expected details of the job along with the unexpected (a leak in an outside wall that needed to be repaired resulting in the need to re-stucco a portion of our home). Throughout the process (estimated to take 3 weeks but took 3 1/2 instead --- that darn leak), Nick was on the job site daily, kept in touch consistently, answered emails and texts promptly (most times within minutes), kept us aware of the schedule, and addressed any and all of our concerns immediately. Also all the sub-contractors he hired came to consult with us about the job, arrived on the job site on time each day, and did a wonderful job. Having never untaken a remodel such as this before, we didn't realize that our experience with Nick was so out of the ordinary. Since then, friends have told us horror stories -- remodels that drag on forever, not knowing when workers will show up, poor communication with contractor, etc. There is no way that a kitchen remodel cannot be an inconvenience but working with Nick and Sandifer Design Build Remodel made it as painless as possible. We would hire Nick again in a heartbeat.

Anne Speed

I could not be more satisfied with Nick Sandifer and Sandifer Design Build Remodel! I asked him to build me a freestanding cabana with stucco exterior and shingle roof, and covering an outdoor kitchen with two bars which required new plumbing and electricity, and a full set of outdoor kitchen appliances. The front of the cabana was also connected to the edges of my new pool, which was an added level of complexity. Nick was very professional and met on-site with members of his team to discuss my ideas for the project within two days of calling him. He listened attentively, and quickly returned an estimate and design incorporating everything I wanted. This early display of good listening, communication, and professionalism is what prompted me to hire him. He worked seamlessly with the pool company to get the cabana built, and was always on time with his work, and most often ahead of schedule. There was nearly daily communication about the status of the project, and questions were always answered thoroughly and promptly. The quality of work is excellent, and I would highly recommend this company. Also, towards the end of the project I knew I was going to need landscaping around my pool. Nick asked if I wanted him to help out...I of course said "yes". Within a few days I had an estimate and detailed landscape design, and it was installed in less than a week! My neighbors always compliment the landscape and cabana. You cannot go wrong hiring Sandifer Design Build Remodel...you will be extremely pleased with the results, and might end up being the talk of your neighborhood!

Dr. Rob Deflorio

We are very pleased with the work completed by Sandifer Design Build Remodel. We added a custom stone fireplace to our outdoor living area. Nick Sandifer was very professional. He listened to what we wanted, designed and implemented the plan in a timely fashion and had the job completed to perfection by the time we needed it done. He was here every day to oversee the work being completed and communicated with us daily. They went above and beyond and we highly recommend this company. It was a pleasure working with them!

Joelle Caldwell

Nick and his crew were very friendly and easy to work with. They did an excellent job building an addition to our house that is now our dining room. We love having dinner parties in our beautiful new dining room! Nick did a great job with making sure we were happy with the finished product and had no problem coming over himself and touching up anything we asked of him at the end of the project. Their attention to detail really stands out! We would definitely work with Sandifer Design Build Remodel again in the future and we already recommended them to my mother who wants her kitchen remodeled. You won't be disappointed using this company.

Ashley Garcia

Nick Sandifer dedicated a lot of time to create/build the vision my wife had for our cabana/pool complex. It was to our satisfaction and had attention to detail. He was attentive and responsive to our concerns/questions on details and adjusted the plan accordingly. He spent time with us at set intervals to talk about the project progress and feedback on any issues we may have noticed. There were a few instances that his subcontractors failed him and timing was off creating a lenghly delay in project to be finished. The end result was spectacular!

Juan Canabal

I hired Nick Sandifer as my contractor on a complete bathroom remodel. My experience with Nick and all his subcontractors he brought in was top notch. They all were very professional, clean, detail oriented and the end result was absolutely beautiful. I could not be happier. I have to say that Nick went above and beyond answering all phone calls and texts immediately, checking in with me several times a day and completing small tasks that were not in the original estimate. I had recently lost my husband and this was the first remodel that I took on by myself. On top of Nick's professionalism, he was very kind and tolerant with me and children. I would hire Nick at Sandifer Design Build Remodel again in a heartbeat and have actually discussed a few more projects with him. I have NO reservations in recommending Nick Sandifer for any contracting job you may need.

I. Whitaker

We contacted Nick Sandifer of Sandifer Design Build Remodel to remodel our master bathroom and kitchen. The project was completed a few days within the original dates and the financial estimate was kept on budget. We never felt that we were being nickeled and dimed during the project even though there were a few minor changes that had to be made due to structural and electrical problems. Perhaps the most impressive part of the project was Nick’s constant attention to detail and quality. We were extremely pleased with the final result and would recommend Sandifer Design Build Remodel for any of your remodeling needs.

Karl Pezdirtz

I have had the pleasure of working with Nick Sandifer on several projects, and he has always impressed me as a dedicated, capable and trustworthy professional. I always recommend Nick to clients who are looking for a remodeling company, as he brings to the table not just his experience, but also honesty and hard work.

Aria Homes, Inc.

Excellent, professional kitchen remodel in ALL capacities. Very pleased that I now have a gorgeous functional kitchen.  I would HIGHLY recommend Sandifer Design Build Remodel. They surpassed my expectations and I am VERY happy. They went above and beyond and will ONLY consider this company for the remainder of my home remodels.
