The Meritus Experience

Meritus Signature Homes is one of the most respected and trusted custom home builders across the Upstate South Carolina and Western North Carolina regions. We are proud to have helped hundreds of families realize the affordable luxury of our custom homes in the area’s most scenic and elite communities.

We’re proud to be one of only a handful of Upstate builders that survived the economic downturn of 2008. We did this by becoming an even more cost-effective resource for our clients around the Upstate. What carried us through the toughest times was our ability to deliver a well-crafted home or project that gave our clients the dream home they envisioned, but stayed within their budget.

Our understanding of materials, craftsmanship and cost is at the heart of the Meritus experience. The mark of a great builder isn’t working with unrestricted budgets to deliver that once-in-a-lifetime home. We believe it is being able to provide the highest quality workmanship, work with proven brands, select the right materials for the desired results and stay on budget.

These hard lessons made Meritus a stronger builder, with values that are in sync with the new realities of today’s financial climate. One thing that never changed, however, is the Meritus commitment to quality.

Whether your dream is a downsized cottage on one of South Carolina’s lakes, a mountaintop villa with spectacular views of the Blue Ridge, or a new Southern Living-designed home for the family, Meritus delivers that rare combination of craftsmanship, customer focus and fair pricing.
