“they love Mr. Scott.”

“We had a great experience building with Clabaugh Custom Homes!  Scott made sure every aspect of our new home was done to our taste and style.  We have many custom details including a mudroom with built in storage, a fireplace with shiplap and even a beautiful barn door in our master bedroom.  He was also very sweet to our 3 little girls who now have pink and purple bedrooms with matching chandeliers.  They love Mr. Scott!  I would definitely recommend Clabaugh Custom Homes to anyone looking to build or remodel.”

“end results stop people in their tracks.”

Scott Clabaugh has been our contractor for multiple projects over the last 5 years. Scott and his wife were actually clients of my wife's photography business and after learning he was a general contractor, we asked him to put together a quote for us on a kitchen remodel in our Ijamsville home. He was very transparent with us about his pricing (I'm a finance person) so we asked him to do the job for us. The kitchen turned out beautiful and a year later, when we decided to sell our home, it was the kitchen that sold our house in 3 days during a relatively cold market. Our next home in downtown New Market was a completely different challenge - 217 years old and not a 90-degree corner to be found. During a 2-week rent-back, Scott and his team were able to oversee the complete turnkey installation of a 3-zone HVAC system (from scratch, no duct work including running gas lines and upgrading electrical service), a complete bathroom gut/remodel with a tiled shower and heated floor, and more trim projects than I can remember. 

The next project that Scott tackled for us was a kitchen overhaul in this home. This involved gutting down to the studs, moving windows, doors, water lines, gas lines, leveling a two-level concrete slab floor, installing 900 sq. ft of rough walnut flooring, building a pantry, all while retaining the hidden gems buried within the drywall (original siding, chestnut posts, etc.). The end result stops people in their tracks when they walked in. The most recent project was the conversion of roughly 1600 sq. ft of barn space on our property into a photography studio. This was completed as a commercial space with ADA compliance throughout. The space includes a wide open shooting area, office space, sitting room, full bath, and lots of storage. The challenge with this project was permitting and with Scott, we never had to worry about it. It's now an incredible spot and has added tremendous value to our property. Scott has a key to our house, let's himself in without knocking, and even the dogs accept him as one of the family. To me, that's the most important part.

“knowledge and professionalism”

“Scott and I have worked together on several projects including my own personal custom home.  With my background in construction I was shocked to see how much he understands the house from the initial plan design right through to the last bit of hardware.  Building standard homes are complex, but to build a custom home would have been impossible without Scotts knowledge, professionalism, and explanation of all the details. I would (and have) recommended him to my own children when they are building a home of their own.”

“professional and conscientious.”

“Clabaugh Construction completely renovated our kitchen and entire first floor.  We a colonial style home with compartmentalized rooms and they changed it to become a very open concept.  We removed walls, changed locations of appliances and put hardwood throughout the entire first floor. They were professional and conscientious and did an amazing job.  In addition, they offered great suggestions that we never would have thought about due to their years of experience.  Cooking is so much more fun, and we can’t wait to entertain our family and friends. We would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to perform any type of renovations to their home, large or small.”

“continues father’s legacy.”

“Scott and his father built our house over 16 years ago and we have loved making it our home ever since. Today, Scott continues his father’s legacy offering superior craftsmanship and professionalism with the utmost integrity.  Over the years, Scott has graciously served as a resource and advisor for all things house related. Recently, he finished our basement exceeding our expectations with its unique design and material selection. Working with Scott is a complete pleasure and we look forward to our next project with him.”

“someone we trust.”

“When Glenn and I decided to turn our barns into a wedding venue we knew we would need someone to help us with supervising the project. We knew Scott Clabaugh from past work he had done for us. He is someone we trust and with him knowing the contracting business like he does, it gave us piece of mind. Scott has saved us money by using him to oversee our projects because he knows when, how and who to call to make things happen.”

— Glenn and Carol Zirpolo


“completely satisfied.”

"We have worked with Scott for over 15 years at both our home and business.  The jobs have ranged from small fix up and update jobs to complete builds and we have always been completely satisfied with the quality of the finished project.

Scott is a 2rd generation contractor and it shows.  He's extremely knowledgeable in every aspect of the construction trade. Scott and his crew are always professional, and the quality of their work has never disappointed.  Scott works with you through the entire project answering any and all questions to ensure the job is done to your complete satisfaction.

We would definitely recommend Scott for any of your general contracting needs."
