Home to the prestigious Masters Tournament that happens each Spring, Augusta is a picturesque city to live in year-round within the Central Savannah River Area. Located at the fall line and filled with much history, the city houses a lot of parks and walking and biking trails. It is also the regional center of medicine, biotechnology, and cybersecurity, with the U.S. Army Cyber Center of Excellence recently moving to the area.

If you are also thinking of relocating to this dynamic city or already live here and need some work done on your home, here is a list of the best general contractors in Augusta who can help you. These firms are led by experienced builders, including some Certified Graduate Remodelers (CGR), Certified Graduate Builders (CGB), Certified Aging-in-Place Specialists (CAPS), and Certified Green Professionals (CGP). 

Augusta Remodeling & Construction Inc.

3876 Wrightsboro Rd., Augusta, GA 30909

White cabinetry contrasts the dark stone flooring of this corner kitchen that forms a semi-open layout with the dining and living rooms. A tiered island sits at its center, with the same light gray and black counters that line the rest of the prep spaces topping its olive green base. A mix of recessed and drop lights illuminate the U-shape, which also features matte finish fixtures in the fridge and oven.

Augusta Remodeling and Construction has built and remodelled homes like these in the Georgia and South Carolina area for over thirty-three years. Four-time Chrysalis Award recipient Richard Johnson, CGR, CGB, CAPS, CGP, leads the team of talented craftsmen. He has also been voted the Remodeler of the Year and Builder of the Year by the Builder’s Association of Metro Augusta, where he previously served as president, as well as chairman of the Remodeler’s Council, for three terms. He sat on the Construction Advisory Board of Columbia County as well.

MRC Construction

2203 Willis Foreman Rd., Hephzibah, GA 30815

Since 1947, MRC Construction has built and renovated homes and businesses in the Augusta area, earning it the Remodeler of the Year award in 2001. Architectural Engineer and firm president Doug McMonigle, CGB, represents the third generation of leadership in the family-owned business. He also currently serves as the vice president of the Builder’s Association of Metro Augusta and previously served as president of the Home Builder’s Association of Georgia.

The firm specializes in kitchen and bath updates. Taking a long bath in this recessed tub proves especially relaxing when one can gaze at the floral art around its white tile frame. The earth tones are complemented by the brass fixtures. Other bathroom remodeling ideas MRC can deliver include adding mosaic or textured tiles, vertical cabinetry and open shelving, and heated floors. The company can also install sound systems and flat-screen televisions. It can also convert your fixtures to curbless showers, comfort-height toilets, or tub-shower combos. For kitchens, the firm can update your pantry, islands, countertops, flooring, appliances, sinks, and cabinets.

Prescott & Sons Construction

121 E. Marion Ave., North Augusta, SC 29841

Prescott and Son’s was founded by Josh Prescott, who comes from a family of builders and began in the industry in high school. After, he went on to frame homes and learn the nuances of the trade for over a decade, until he obtained his general contractor license. His wife Ashley shares his passion for building and is now a licensed general contractor as well, working alongside him in the firm. Prescott & Sons does everything from small remodeling jobs to kitchen and bath updates to whole home renovations and custom homes.

The below room addition is among the many projects Prescott & Sons Construction has built in the Central Savannah River Area since it was established in 2008. Tall windows and glass sliding doors create a breezy atmosphere in this vaulted ceiling living room. A long curved couch faces the stone-clad fireplace anchoring the space. One is surrounded by views of the trees and the adjacent covered deck.

S and H Construction, LLC

195 N. Louisville St., Harlem, GA 30814

Kerry and Ray Sherrill lead S and H Construction in building new custom homes across the greater Central Savannah River Area. The firm combines two generations of building experience with professional customer service. S and H builds new homes, ensuring that it meets the needs of each client and delivers exceptional results. 

This kitchen renovation is a fine example of the care that goes into the firm’s work. The center island has enough room to double as an eat-in space, seating up to five on the elegant wood bar stools that line its quartz countertop. Around it, white cabinetry provides a relaxing backdrop, framing the stainless steel fixtures. A traditional wooden range hood provides a classic touch against the gray glass tile backsplash. Glass-encased drop lamps also provide warm light to complement the recessed lights by the perimeter and the natural light that streams through the windows when the blinds are open.

AJ Construction

2865 Waterside Dr., Augusta, GA 30906

AJ Construction’s work is characterized by a high level of craftsmanship. Allen Jones leads the firm as it remodels and renovates homes in Augusta, aiming to deliver excellent customer service and exceed clients’ expectations with every job. AJ also does some new construction of both residential and commercial projects in the area.

This kitchen blends a modern feel with some touches of nature, creating a rustic minimalist environment. Skylights shine light onto the hefty island that sits at its center; this provides storage space beneath the countertop and houses an undermount sink. The same distressed wood found in the cabinet doors flanking the stainless steel fridge provides eat-in space for four. This same material frames the range hood, providing a sharp contrast to the white cabinetry that lines the walls.
