We have served projects throughout the Western North Carolina, Piedmont and Metrolina regions of North Carolina, and the upstate of South Carolina.

We seek to hire employees in the areas in which we work, making every effort to avoid asking anyone to travel to a jobsite more than 60 miles from their home. Work-life balance is extremely important to us in the Fountain family and while we value hard work, we also value the time you are able to spend at home.
