When my family embarked on a major renovation project for our General Motors dealership in Cape May Court House, we were quite apprehensive about the prospect of being able to secure a local contractor who could handle this very complicated and demanding job. We consulted our architect and asked him to supply us with a list of contractors who he thought could handle our project.  Skip Holtzapfel Builders, Inc. was one of five firms suggested and his bid was quite competitive.  I believe it was Ben Franklin who coined the phrase "Time is money." 

In this instance, it was more than true considering that we would have to close the majority of the facility during construction and use temporary facilities. Most of the estimates we received were for a six-month plus construction phase.  Skip and his crew had our building ready in three months, saving much aggravation and expense.  His quality of work was superior and access to Skip and the site manager was constant.  Every phase of the project was done on or ahead of schedule.  I would recommend Skip Holtzapfel Builders, Inc. for your construction and renovation needs. I can be reached at 609-463-3541 if you have any questions.

We've been working with Skip for 20 years on restoration, improvements, and a big addition. In all cases, Skip was given very basic parameters and left to work it out on his own. We've never been disappointed. Skip, Thom, and the rest of the guys know what they're doing, use the best subs, finish on time, come in on budget, and always provide a clean, quality job. Skip always displays a rare commodity these days...integrity.

Walter and Maryellen Paget, North Wildwood

Dependability, quality of workmanship, and attention to detail, is the description that comes to mind when we think of Skip Holtzapfel Builders, Inc.  We have known Skip on a personal and professional level for more than 30 years.  He built our version of "Mr. Blanding's Dream House" almost six years ago with all the tender loving care and affection of a "doting parent." When folks admire our home and ask "who built it," we simply reply "Skip did."  Their follow-up statement has always been "You Had The Best."

His attentiveness to details and listening to our concerns is most appreciated.You will be first on our list for any additional work and first for any referrals.

His team is the most professional, reliable, honest and component group we have had the pleasure to deal with. No matter what request we throw at him, his response is always, "not a problem." His knowledge and experience delivers a superior completed project on time with few surprises. I always refer my friends and associates to Skip without hesitation.

Skip Holtzapfel built our home in Cape May about 18 years ago. We had an architect who put the plans out for a bid and ended up with six different bids. The home is on Beach Avenue in Cape May and is over 5,000 square feet with extensive decking. Skip's bid was the most reasonable and I was assured by our architect through his past experience that Skip's company did excellent work. Skip started the project and completed it on time. We were and are thrilled with our home. Since the home has been completed whenever we have had any problem due to the elements (we're right across from the beach) we have called Skip and he has been very responsive. Since we've moved in, we did a significant alteration on the second floor which we had Skip do. Once again he started the project on time and completed it when he said he would and the work was outstanding. Skip and his company are professional, reliable and trustworthy. I cannot recommend them highly enough if you are considering either building a house or having work done on an existing house.

After renting in Cape May for numerous years we decided to consider owning our own home.   Fortunately, we ultimately decided to build and are thrilled with the result. We met Skip Holtzapfel and we were impressed with his previous work and the depth of his understanding of our needs. 

Skip’s attention to detail and his understanding of the marketplace for our allowances was evident and appreciated.  Our goal was to set a budget and live within it.  We were so grateful for the way Skip and his associates worked with us to stay in budget without sacrificing quality or cutting corners.

Through our many visits to Cape May along with countless phone calls, Skip was always reassuring and encouraging.  He demonstrated an earnest desire to complete our project on time and helped us feel that building our home was not just a job but a calling.  Numerous times our anxieties were met with Skip’s calm assurance.  Certainly one example occurred when Hurricane Irene was bearing down on us.  His care and effort to secure our property was both timely and effective.

We were impressed with the subcontractors and staff members that brought our home to completion.  Their competence and professionalism were clearly evident in the attention to detail that helped us to be transformed from renters to owners!

We are fortunate to be new members of the Cape May community.  We feel privileged to be living in such a historic and happening place, and are grateful to Skip and his associates for delivering an outstanding home.  It is our pleasure to recommend Skip and to thank him for everything.  Our dream has become a reality and we wish to thank Skip and all those who helped us in this amazing journey.
