About KS Contracting Services

KS Contracting Services is owned by long-time friends Keith Knowles and Shaun St. Dennis. Shaun and Keith are both licensed general contractors with extensive construction experience. Originally founded as KS Restoration—where the primary focus of our work was to restore homes and businesses after catastrophic losses—we are now known as KS Contracting Services.

As KS Contracting Services, we have evolved to incorporate a broader range of work – residential and commercial remodeling, custom home building and new commercial construction.
