About Us

Signature Construction was born out of Sean York’s childhood dream to build quality custom homes. His love for the water and the environment drew him to the North Carolina coast where he now resides in Southport with his family. Originally from Long Island NY, Sean’s experience ranges from building custom high end homes to being president of a Marine electronics firm in NY, which included installing integrated electronics systems, Marine Radar systems and Global Positioning Systems. Sean has managed major projects on high end Yachts and Homes for his clients, including design and construction of cabin interiors, woodworking, and large scale electronics installations both in there homes and yachts.  His high profile clients quickly recognized that Sean was the best in the business, due to his attention to detail and dedication to perfection. It is that level of excellence and experience in project management that sets Signature Construction apart.  Sean has made his premium services available to Southport North Carolina with his custom built plantation style homes for everyone.

Signature Construction builds exclusively in St James Plantation and the Southport areas. Typically homes are based on a pre-determined design and floor plan, often utilizing a standard architecture available on the internet. Signature Construction is different in that we have employed a local architect to design homes based on the client’s exact needs and requests. Signature Construction typically builds open floorplan homes designed for entertaining family and friends. Our homes are designed with separate rooms that flow from one to the other as opposed to being completely separate spaces. Please visit our portfolio to view our floor plans and designs.  Signature Construction recognizes our responsibility to the environment. We use products and innovative design including site planning that will exploit natural resources like available sunlight & prevailing wind direction, and environmentally friendly building products. The company supports the local community by contracting with local suppliers and sub contractors whenever possible. As a Member and Sponsor of Cape Fear Green Building Alliance, Sean is able to share his passion for eco friendly building with the South Eastern North Carolina community.

 Signature Construction works with a team of proven professional sub-contractor to ensure that every aspect of your home is built to the standards that we represent as a company. We carefully oversee every phase, and are available to our clients no matter what.  When construction is complete, a house is often not ready for move-in because it is an empty shell. Signature Construction can help to turn the house into your home by offering full provisioning including furniture, cookware, audio visual equipment, appliances, linens, lighting fixtures, and more.
