Our Company


Kevin Sexton and Barry Griffith launched their custom home building company in 1990 with a shared vision of quality and personal service. The inspiration, though, began long before. Kevin’s father, Bobby Sexton, instilled these values in both men over decades of building quality homes in the tri-county area.

Sexton-Griffith Custom Builders expanded from the Greater Greenville area in 2000 as they began building in the mountain communities throughout northern Oconee, Pickens, and Greenville counties. With vast experience in a variety of communities, Sexton Griffith is prepared to provide the best guidance and value in making your dream home a reality.

The company’s newly expanded office outside Greenville along I-85 is strategically located to coordinate activities with homeowners, suppliers, and subcontractors.
