South Carolina Home Builder

Now Serving Coastal Georgetown & Horry Counties, SC

With an eye toward growth and a passion for crafting thoughtfully designed coastal homes, J. Lorton & Company is proud to call South Carolina our second home. The allure of seaside living is universal, and we understand the appeal. At J. Lorton & Company, we’ve spent four decades partnering with NJ homeowners to create tranquil waterfront lifestyles. Now, we’ve expanded our footprint to South Carolina, where we are bringing unparalleled service to new neighbors in Georgetown and Horry counties.

South Carolina’s Waterfront Builder

When it comes to beach, lake and wetland living, J. Lorton & Company handcrafts homes as unique as their owners. Specializing in coastline design-build services, we engineer houses and structures to endure seaside winds, inclement weather and unrelenting exposure to salt and sun. Our veteran carpenters and design-build experts have in-depth experience in these areas and more:

  • Sustainable, energy-efficient construction techniques
  • Flood zone restrictions, FEMA guidelines & coastal building practices
  • Soil conditions & coastal erosion
  • Strict adherence to state & local building codes
  • Hurricane-proofing & retrofitting of oceanfront homes
  • Maintaining, repairing & renovating coastal buildings

Tough, Long-Lasting Materials for Coastal Building

High wind speeds, soil erosion and weather extremes demand construction methods that outperform nature. When you’re ready to select exterior and interior building materials, J. Lorton & Company helps you choose options as tough as they are beautiful. With our expert guidance, your Murrells Inlet bungalow, beach house, farmhouse or cottage will reflect your vision and style while withstanding the wind, waves and hurricane seasons.

Our custom renovation and construction team offers these services and more:

  • Comprehensive design-build services for homes & businesses
  • Custom home building (bungalows, cottages, estates & coastal homes)
  • Kitchen, bath & basement renovations
  • Home improvement projects, large & small
  • Exterior construction (three-season rooms, decks, doors & windows)
  • Custom carpentry
  • Commercial build-outs & construction projects

The J. Lorton & Company Difference

When it comes to handcrafted homes, there’s no substitute for experience. John Lorton built his first home in 1982. Nearly four decades later, J. Lorton & Company continues to build lasting relationships with generations of customers. As one of Ocean County’s fastest-growing builders, our family-owned business is honored to serve South Carolina clients at a second location. Cultivating lifelong relationships with generations of homeowners, we approach projects—large and small—with quality and detail focus that’s become a lost art.

At J. Lorton & Company, we know our company is only as strong as our people. Our track record of success is rooted in our staff’s steadfast pursuit of integrity, diligence and promise-keeping. When you trust our custom builders with your waterfront home or invite us to make-over your kitchen and bath, you’ll find we are friendly and attentive to the little things. In construction and many areas of life, it’s been said the difficulty is in the details. We couldn’t agree more, so “the details” are our specialty. The smallest element of your home’s construction or renovation is paramount to us.
