Meet Our Team
After more than seven years in the commercial and residential construction business, working on multiple projects throughout the United States, Matthew Graham began Palmetto Renovations (2013) out of his desire to start a small family run business on the northeast side of Columbia. What began as a small-scale renovations company, has developed into what is now an all-encompassing renovations company for both, commercial and residential construction projects. With a home builders license, Palmetto Renovations has the ability to build a home from the ground up. However, staying true to his roots, Matthew Graham has decided to keep Palmetto Renovations primarily focused on home renovations, remodeling, and house flipping.
