About Us

DavidHoffmanOwner and master craftsman David Hoffman began his training working on historic homes along the Hudson River Valley and New York City. In 1979, a project brought David to Charleston. He fell in love with the city and has been working to maintain its historic treasures since.

David personally supervises his crew of craftsmen and subcontractors, handling all phases of preservation, restoration and remodeling. The full-time crew includes carpenters, masons, painters and plasterers. Edgewood Builders contracts as needed with a group of specialty sub-contractors for mechanical installations, stone and tile work, and specialty roofing. We also have the in-house capability to do the shop drawings necessary for any off-site fabrication, i.e. millwork detailing, molding detailing and stone detailing, among others.

Edgewood Builders is also a U.S. EPA Lead Safe Certified Firm, certified to handle lead abatement.
