That process also ensures that every project is not just successful, but exceptional.

We look forward to building the house of your dreams with you.

Ted Spencer

Ted grew up spending the summers in Chatham on Barcliff Ave. Like many others, he was drawn back to the cape to raise his three children. He began working for local builders and after a few years went out on his own to form E.H. Spencer & Co LLC. Now 35 years later Ted has created a reputation for delivering master craftsmanship and a personalized building experience for his clients. The foundation for his reputation is the idea that a construction project deserves the utmost attention. For him the only way to do that was to be on site himself, with his tools on, focusing on one project at a time.

Matt  Spencer

Matt grew up spending as much time with his father as he could. Most of which was helping on construction projects and fishing. It was inevitable that he would absorb the traits of his father. Matt worked with Ted on summer breaks and school vacations throughout high school and college. After graduating from the University of Massachusetts Amherst with a Bachelor of Economics Matt began his real estate career in Boston. After a couple of years in real estate, he found himself missing the tangible gratification of the construction industry. He moved back to Cape Cod and started working full time with Spencer & Company as a carpenter. He slowly worked his way into project management and now is a Partner in the company.

We Work With The Best Clients

Ted Spencer has built two houses and renovated a third for me in Chatham with excellent results. Ted’s personal involvement and attention to detail ensured a high quality of construction and on-time delivery for each project. I am happy to recommend Ted Spencer and his company.

We recently had Spencer & Co renovate three rooms in our house and they did an outstanding job. Specifically, a small downstairs bedroom room was converted to a library with wall-to-wall bookshelves; the master bedroom was simplified with builtins that eliminated a lot of furniture and made the room look larger; and a tired upstairs bathroom was completely redone. Most of the house was repainted after the work was finished and they did a great job with that too. We loved working with Matt Spencer and his group of craftsmen and will not hesitate to hire them again for our next building/renovation project .

We chose Spencer & Company to build our new home because we are fond of their work and heard great things from friends who were happy customers. We like Ted Spencer’s philosophy of building one home at a time and working at the job site. Ted was masterful at coordinating seamlessly and harmoniously with the architect, interior designer, subs, and landscape architect. His employees and subs are top-notch professionals who were friendly and informative whenever we had questions or needed guidance. We are thrilled with the outcome and delighted to recommend Spencer & Company.

Brad & Jane Gale

We can not recommend Spencer & Co. more highly.  Our project was very complex: a full gut/re-build with lots of structural work, all on a constrained site with many environmental restrictions.  The quality of the work was exceptional, and Matt and Ted worked closely and collaboratively with our architects to bring the project to its full potential.  Their close oversight and daily involvement was key to the level of finish they delivered.  In our experience some builders disappear after the last check is paid; Matt and Ted have continued to stay in touch and clearly feel great ownership for their work and our experience as customers.  We would gladly use them again.
