“I had a vision and after telling him what I was looking for it was more than I expected. He did more than what I thought he was going to do. He added little things just to make it extra was finishing the job correctly, on time, keeping his word, and just doing those things that made it that more special."

"Chris was very thorough in determining what repairs needed to be made and took the time to explain each of them to me. He even talked me through items that were outside of his scope of work, but that weren't being done properly by other contractors. His workers were courteous, helpful, and did a beautiful job. Throughout the process, Chris was highly responsive and reliable, and worked tirelessly so that we could meet tight deadlines. I had a great experience working with CDS Restoration and would highly recommend them to anyone in the Charleston area."

“There's a very wide range of what he can do himself. He's an excellent carpenter himself. He's built steps and stairways for me. He's done things that I had an engineer said couldn't be done and he did it. He made it happen. He makes things happen. CDS Restoration is all about results!”

"As the Associate Broker of Handsome Properties, I sell a lot of historic properties that occasionally need repairs or improvements before I can market them for sale. Chris Simmons of CDS Restoration knows how to handle these repairs properly and use materials that are historically accurate. Chris can handle jobs of any size, and his pricing and quick turnaround for finishing these jobs is unparalleled compared to any other contractor I have ever worked with. I would not have had as much success selling real estate in Charleston if it were not for Chris' company and the work he does for my clients."

"I have had the pleasure of working with Chris multiple times over the past two years since becoming a real estate agent. From the first time I met Chris, he has been nothing but professional. His knowledge of downtown homes has proven beneficial at times. I had clients who loved the location of a potential property but hated the condition of it.  The house did need some work but nothing too massive. They interviewed a few other contractors besides CDS Restoration but Chris assured he could do amazing work at a fraction of the price of others.  When the quotes came back, sure enough CDS was considerably lower.  Most people would assume that cheaper prices mean cheaper quality but that is FAR from the truth with CDS. Chris did the work he promised at the price he promised and within the time frame.  My clients honestly would not be in their dream home if it hadn’t been for CDS because they would have thought it was too much of a project. I will continue recommending Chris and CDS."
