Hurricane renovation on the beach. The process after the initial contact with Dave Sipos from Sawgrass Plantation was one of the easiest and most professional renovation I have ever taken. I have been in the construction business for a long time and dealt with many contractors. This was by far the best experience I have ever had. Hurricane Irma came to visit us in September 2017 and left behind a house that was gutted to the studs. I met with many contractors in the area and some were quoting lower prices, but there was something I couldn’t put a finger on with Dave Sipos. Now that the work is completed the finger was trust, loyalty and professionalism to his client. The entire house was rebuilt with the exception of the main foundation, outer cinder block walls and roof. But the space was transformed from a 1959 beach house to a modern 2019 house on the beach. Foundations were refortified, interior walls were removed, a bath was expanded, the wiring, plumbing, HVAC and all respected trades were brought up to code and approved every step of the way by the county. The cabinets and counter tops were made to order, the molding details were perfect, the bath and shower changes were spot on and the materials vendors provided quality materials. There was also a refurbishment of the 60 year old terrazzo floors. Just beautiful. We are so happy that we went with Sawgrass Plantation. The staff including Scott, John and the many others were a pleasure to meet and work with. This is a small narrow street with 8 homes but all the neighbors were impressed with the accountability, workmanship and ownership of the project. They also appreciated the road access not being blocked during the work.
If we had to do this all over again we would choose Dave Sipos and Sawgrass Plantation Ent. for our contractor. Thanks Dave.
Dave and his team are TOP SHELF! Our repairs were extensive and required that we vacate the first floor. Dave and Team even helped move all of the furniture! Highest quality workmanship and attention to detail. If you want the best, hire the best!
Thanks again to Dave and Team!
Awesome team! Awesome job! Came out just like I imagined it – both gates are stunning, old and new! Thank you!!
Thanks to Dave, Scott, John and Gene for a job well done! Mess and inconvenience were kept at a minimum, they humored me through second thoughts, changes, etc. I’ve now remodeled 2 guest rooms, a guest bathroom and the master bath and bedroom. I’m very pleased and will definitely use this quality company in the future.
Just wanted to say thanks for the great job you and your crew did in installing the anchor. Your crew went over the installation with me and the depth you ended up with on the screw. The cleanup was also great, it doesn’t look as if any work was ever done.
We were looking for someone to take care of a ceiling problem we had. We contacted painters and builders with different ideas to correct. My one idea was to place beams over the areas we were concerned with. Saw a display at a home show in Daytona for Sawgrass construction. They were very positive about doing the beam idea. Dave came to our home and saw no problem. We agreed to the job. This past week the job was finished and we could not be any happier. The workers were fabulous. They were very careful with our belongings and replaced everything as it was. We cannot say enough about how pleased we are with this company and would recommend them to anyone who needs work done. Thank you again.

Hire Dave Sipos and his team! Sawgrass Plantation completed a total remodel of our beach home. His knowledge of coastal challenges and regulations is extremely helpful. Dave’s many year’s of experience in the area serves his clients’ well. The skill base of the entire team is excellent. Equally important to me is that Dave is a true partner. His wise and patient guidance is an amazing trait in the construction business. Communication is the key to any successful partnership. Dave has it nailed! The changes to our home are transformational. I couldn’t recommend this company more highly.
Oh, did I mention he’s great on finishing up on the little details at the project end?
Thank you so much for making our home more accessible for Rick. We are very pleased with everything.

I would like to thank Sawgrass Plantation for the fantastic job that each and every one had in completing my new screen porch! From the first meeting with David Sipos, to the very last day on the job I was kept informed in advance of what would be taking place as the workers worked to complete my project. Sawgrass even went so far as to let me know if someone was running late or wasn’t able to come to the job that day; therefore, I wouldn’t be sitting home wondering what was going on. The job site was kept immaculately clean every day; which was greatly appreciated by me!
I am writing to express my gratitude for the work you completed on our store following the discovery of the truss failure.
We run a very busy Pet Grooming business and you were very considerate by doing the work on Mondays, while were closed. As the work continued, you worked nights and worked around us during the day; so we could take care of our customers. Because of your actions, we never had to close, allowing us to not only save a lot of money, but more importantly, not having to inconvenience our customers.
It’s one of the hardest things to do, find an extremely qualified contractor to work for you when you have to get the job done NOW. We were lucky to have found you and you really came through for us.
The only thing I regret is not having more work for you. One thing is certain; any future work will be done by Sawgrass at our business and our home.

I wanted to say thank you to Dave and Scott for their efforts and professionalism. Scott did a great job managing the renovation. He was prompt, conscientious, and courteous. We appreciate that we’ll be able to enjoy for a long time the great looking results of the renovation. We’ll be sure to recommend Sawgrass Plantation Enterprises to anyone that asks or is considering remodeling their condo. Thank you again for your great work.

Just a note to thank you and your crew for the great job you did installing our windows. From the first meeting to the end of the project we were kept informed of the schedule and what we were going to experience throughout the project. The installers were very respectful of our feelings and belongings and took every effort to make a major disruption as pleasant as possible.
We received a call every morning to let us know the approximate time of arrival and everything possible was done each evening before departing. The installers put the rooms back to a workable space each evening before leaving and it meant a lot to have worked with real professionals and we thank you all for that.

We were at the house a few weeks ago and it looks amazing!!!!
Sawgrass and his team are regarded as one of the best contracting groups in the area, and I can confirm that as I have had about 5 different projects done by them. The projects are all finished on time and the budgets are thoroughly discussed as to account for changes. Dave will keep you informed of all things to be changed and has years of expertise that he brings to improve the quality of the work, I would get a quote from him before you start any work around your home, because of course he will help you make it your castle.
I have a 40-foot concrete girder-supported walkover ramp across the dunes leading to additional wooden steps to the beach. It is about 60 years old and the re-bar has been corroding for years; it had been patched several times; and I had a new girder put in last year. None of the people who assessed my needs had ever seen one like it and couldn’t figure out how it got there. David Sipos, owner of Sawgrass Plantation Enterprise, brought in all kinds of agents to evaluate what could and could not be done to solve my problem–state, county, and city people, EPA, engineers, etc. He went over all of the options with me, including the pros and cons for each one. He finally built a wooden ramp over the existing concrete one, not touching it. There was a lot of up-front production before he could finally proceed with the project.
He will soon begin work on my next project–replacing the roof on my garage–not the roofing, the roof.
My husband and I purchased a home with foundation problems. We had three contractors come out and give us estimates on the repair which was installing helical piers around three sides of our home. We decided to use Dave Sipos of Sawgrass Plantation, Dave seemed to be the most trustworthy and very knowledgeable with the helical piers. Our job turned out to be much more difficult than expected. The back portion of the home was built on debris and not just any debris, there were huge tree stumps and oak trees. Throughout these trying times, Dave and his crew always had a positive never give up attitude. They did what they had to do to get the job done and done right. Dave was able to hydraulically raise the back of our home over three inches. Sawgrass Plantation was able to repair what we thought would never be fixed. They went above and beyond to get our home stabilized and secure. We highly recommend Dave Sipos for any of your contracting needs.

It’s just as Gaynelle said this morning; when we want something done the right way, we know who to call. I can’t think of a stronger endorsement of your work and the ability of your staff than to be able to say that after all the work you’ve done for us over 25 years.
The people at Sawgrass were very professional and did a fine job. The work was also done in a timely manner. I would recommend them to anyone for a variety of jobs, both large and small.
Every once in a while, your ingenious and inventive staff does something outstanding that is above the normal contractor-customer relationship.

I have had two occasions to work with them remodeling our office to accommodate an additional physician and his staff. On both occasions, I found the employees of Sawgrass to be extremely detail oriented and very thorough. The initial remodel was completed on schedule and with minimum disruption to the existing office while we continued to see patients on a daily basis. We were so pleased with the quality of their work that we decided to make some additional changes once the initial project was finished. Once again, Sawgrass came in and made the necessary changes in a very timely manner, working around our schedule and with no disruption in our daily routine. I found the personnel of Sawgrass to be patient and helpful, making suggestions when necessary and they were certainly willing to do whatever they could to see that the project was completed to our satisfaction. I would not hesitate to call them in the future, should the need arise, and do not have any reservations in recommending them to potential clients.

I don’t normally write these types of letters, but we are so pleased with the new second floor deck you constructed for us, the quality of workmanship and the attention to details. Your people, without exception, were first class skilled tradesmen. They not only knew their job, but took the time to answer my questions, listen to suggested approaches and implement them, if the suggestions made sense to them. They didn’t mind explaining to me why they were doing something in a certain way. They also cleaned up every night, and were considerate of our pet cats, watching out for them so they did not inadvertently get let outside to wander off. In summary, the experience of dealing with you and your company was refreshing. So many times, dealing with a contractor is an exercise in micromanaging them to get a decent job done. Not so, in your case.
It is with pleasure that we write to you and let you know how pleased we are with the work you did for us this past year. It was a necessary project that we did not want to take on and you made it as pain-free as possible. With John’s daily presence on the job there was always an open line of communication about what to expect as the work progressed. And at the end of each day the work areas were always cleaner than when you got there. We now enjoy the sound of the rain at night and not worry that water may be coming in. Out new doors are beautiful on the inside and out. Many thanks to all of you at Sawgrass Construction for a job well done.
–David and Leslie R.
I just wanted to thank you for the excellent job that your company did in our home. We are very happy with the results of your repairs to correct the settling in our kitchen. I would like to commend all of the courteous workers who were involved, for their promptness and respect for our home. My wife is quite grateful for the way our house was left every time your crew was there. She never had to clean up a mess, which is what we have experienced with other construction. Finally, I greatly appreciate the flexibility you gave us on scheduling your work.
