A Word About Our Company

Satterthwaite and Carhart Inc. is a fully insured construction company that has been in business since 1994 specializing in custom homes, additions, restoration and renovations. We also have considerable experience in the area of ADA and handicapped access remodeling. Our company is led by Ted Satterthwaite and Ric Carhart, who have over 50 years combined experience in the construction business. Ted has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Gettysburg College and Ric has a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from Lafayette University. Both have credits in continuing education from the National Association of Homebuilders and Hanley-Wood. Our company is a member of the Monroe County Master Builders and Contractors Association for which Ted served for 5 years as president. Ted also sits on the board of the Barrett Paradise Business Association. Satterthwaite and Carhart are registered with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania #PA006869 and by the Environmental Protection Agency as a Lead-Safe Certified Firm #NAT-47979-1. We also carry the designation of Certified Renovator by the National Center for Health Housing, #R-I-18351-10-02892.

We teamed up officially in 1994 after being involved in a number of projects together while working for other companies. Both of us felt some dissatisfaction with the way business was conducted by some of their employers. We began our own business saying, “If we return phone calls and actually show up, we’ll be ahead of 90% of the contractors in the area.” More than twenty years later the philosophy seems to be working.

At Satterthwaite and Carhart, we believe in fine workmanship, careful attention to detail and above all, customer satisfaction. Being sure that you are satisfied with the work we do is of utmost importance to us because we do not rely on advertising for our customers. Virtually all of our business comes from architectural firms and customer referrals. All of our work is fully guaranteed for one year from the date of completion.
