HOLY CITY GUTTERWORKS
Who We Are
At our core, we’re artisans. We understand the difference between good and great exists in the details. We know that expertise means understanding the materials we work with and how they interact with the environment around them. We take pride in our work and always aim to meet or exceed expectations.
From the humble beginnings of a small garage in Mt Pleasant, SC in 2017, Holy City Gutterworks has grown to become the Charleston area’s most respected gutter installation contractor. Now headquartered in North Charleston, we have been voted Charleston’s Choice for Best Gutter Company for the last three years. We are the first choice for contractors and homeowners alike from Awendaw to Kiawah.
From the moment you contact us, we work to establish an honest and transparent relationship. We provide enough guidance and education for you to make an informed decision about the best solution for your needs while clearly defining what to expect from us. We maintain timely communication throughout your project and will hold ourselves accountable if we fail to meet your expectations. We understand the level of trust you have given to earn your business, and it is an opportunity we do not take lightly.
We believe it is an honor and privilege to be a part of the Charleston community and do our best to be an active member. We seasonally sponsor and volunteer to coach youth sports teams, donate annually to local schools, and several of our staff hold leadership roles in community programs and churches.
There is no higher compliment than getting magnificent reviews, referrals by “word-of-mouth,” or having the opportunity to do repeat business for our customers. Our company’s success is only as valuable as the relationships we build with our customers and our community, so “thank you” to every customer who has referred a friend or taken the time to write something nice about us online.
About the Owner
Owner and founder of Holy City Gutterworks, Robert Word learned many of the skills that have helped him form Holy City Gutterworks during his early years playing baseball at both the University of Virginia and for professional affiliates of the Florida Marlins. During this time Robert learned just how crucial it was to have talented, dependable, and dedicated teammates to watch his back. He also learned that an attention to detail & dedication to excellence is key to succeeding in not just baseball, but also life in general.
After leaving Professional Baseball, Robert founded a construction company in Virginia that focused on renovating and rehabbing distressed properties. Upon returning to South Carolina, Robert served as the regional installation manager for a national gutter protection company. While this proved a valuable opportunity for him to improve his skills and knowledge, he found himself frustrated by his inability to control the work provided met his high standards for quality and customer service.
As the old adage goes if you want something done right you’ve got to do it yourself, and so Robert did. Robert created Holy City Gutterworks as a way to guarantee that he could provide local customers with gutter replacement, cleaning, installation, and protection services that were the highest possible quality. To that end, he learned from his baseball years and surrounded himself with a highly talented and dedicated staff of like-minded experts to guarantee that customers receive only the best in both customer and gutter service.
When not running Holy City Gutterworks, Robert is currently the Interim Worship Director for The Net, a contemporary service Mt Pleasant Presbyterian Church in Mt Pleasant, SC. He has been a professional musician for over 10 years, touring regionally and playing alongside large national acts at festivals like the Lock’n Music Festival in Nelson County, Virginia.
