You can see many of the reasons – including more than 400 homes, and some of the buildings that give Hilton Head Island its unique character – that will make you feel comfortable talking to Tom Peeples about building or remodeling your home. Other reasons are harder to see – but are every bit as real. They are the relationships Tom has built over 35 years doing business on Hilton Head Island.
The Lowcountry is his home, too, and with his wife, Mary Ann, Tom has made it a home to be proud of.
Growing up in nearby Ridgeland, Tom helped build some of Hilton Head Island’s signature buildings, became a full-time resident in the early ’70s and built a reputation for expert building, remodeling, and impeccable service as a contractor.
As Hilton Head Island has grown, Tom’s reputation throughout Southern Beaufort County has grown as well. In addition to hundreds of satisfied customers, Tom has been recognized by his peers as Builder of the Year four times and was named Business of the Year by the Hilton Head Island Rotary Club.
As he has made his mark for quality and professionalism, Tom’s own character has shown through and the residents of Hilton Head Island chose him to be their Mayor for 15 years. In 2011, the State of South Carolina recognized him with the Order of the Palmetto, its highest civilian honor.
Tom’s service to the public has rounded out relationships with bankers, suppliers, Realtors, and friends from every walk of life. Those relationships have proven to add stability and wholeness to the business through generations of progress here.
While the Lowcountry boasts a number of qualified builders, the enduring strength and standing of Tom Peeples Builder is unique – and another reason he is able to say, “We make building a pleasure.”
