Dear Knauth Builders,
Re: Reference for Knauth Builders. We are delighted with the work product and general contracting for the home built by Peter Knauth. We moved from Annapolis, Maryland so that he could custom build our home. Peter has been building custom built homes for 25 years. We were very pleased with the caliber of the subcontractors, such as Schlouch, Inc, excavators. Over the years Peter has developed excellent relationships with the subcontractors and knows the quality of their work, and, in fact, trained some of them and still does their estimating.
Peter, Knauth Builders owner, is a graduate of the National Home Builders Association’s four-year Carpentry Apprenticeship program. He has his own woodworking shop he uses for designing and building the finish work that he uses in his new home and remodeling jobs. He is certified by the State of Pennsylvania: HIC# PA026292.
Peter designed our home and had the plans architecturally approved. The home was entered into the Berks County Parade of Homes and was awarded the “Best Exterior” in its class. He is a member of the Berks County and Pennsylvania State Home Builders Associations.
One of the highlights of our home construction project, was the use of the red and white oak trees cleared from the building site, which ultimately became the hardwood flooring throughout home and most of the finish work.

Knauth Construction has been building for me in my developments for over 20 years. Peter Knauth has always been my prime contractor and general on-site foreman, and has directed the subcontractors in their assignments. This is in addition to his work as my framer, roofer, installation of siding, and some interior finish work.
Knauth Construction often works with the buyers when they come onto the site, answers their questions, and often initiates change orders.
Other functions include:
1) Works with architects and supplies “as built” drawings.
2) Orders Trusses and other building materials
3) Schedules the subcontractors.
4) Keeps me informed about all site activities.
Knauth Construction has built over 100 homes for me. While I have retired from subdivision development, I do have projects that I have Knauth Construction to work on.
To whom it may concern,
My wife Carole and I have known Peter Knauth for many years and have utilized his construction expertise on many occasions. He is a master cratsman, draftsman and problem solver. At our home in Churchville, PA. Peter renovated our kitchen, family room and built a spacious 2 car garage. That was over two decades ago and it is all still in pristine condition. Most recently, the company drew up and implemented the plans for the renovations and addition to our summer home on Long Beach Island, NJ.
His work is impeccable and he continues to provide excellent work whenever we call on him. Importantly, Knauth Construction is true to their word and make certain that the work is done accurately and on schedule. To summarize, anyone who has the opportunity to hire Knauth Construction to plan and construct any of their projects will be more than satisfied.

To Whom It May Concern:
I write in support of Peter Knauth and his company Knauth Construction to be a general contractor in New Jersey.
My experience with Peter and his crew extends nearly 10 years back, during which time I have had the pleasure of having him work on over a dozen projects between two of our homes. The scale of projects has ranged from the construction of simple walls to substantial outdoor decking.
I am unacquainted with the regulatory and business side of Peter’s profession, and therefore I do not know what qualifications you require to approve his current bid. But if your qualifications include honesty, a high work ethic and uncompromising commitment to integrity and quality work, then Peter and his crew possess them all.
