Southern Home Services, LLC
In 2001, owner Shawn Kalgren decided to make a career change that would ultimately set a new standard in the home renovation industry. He left the North Carolina school system to pursue a different type of service – Southern Home Services. Combining his teaching skills with his 15 years of home renovation experience, Shawn created a company whose values and principles are reflected by its exemplary work. This has led to legions of happy, satisfied customers who continuously recommend Southern Home Services to their neighbors, friends and families.
Exemplary customer service and craftsmanship are the core of these values and principles. At Southern Home Services, “Exterior Renovation perfected by Superior Dedication” is not only our motto, but our pledge to every to every customer who places their confidence in us. We can do this by bringing educational experience and trade expertise to the table, so no customer is uninformed and no detail is overlooked. This is why Southern Home Services won’t be seen on television or heard on the radio – our customers do the advertising for us.

From building computers when he was a kid to his interest in solar energy, Peter loves technology. An attorney with a background in government and public affairs, Peter’s experience helps SHS navigate the permitting, legal and regulatory aspects of the solar industry. Over time, Peter and Shawn are aiming to bring the newest solar and battery technology to our customers through rooftop solar, ground mount systems, battery backup, and EV chargers. Peter envisions a bright future of “decentralized” energy, where a combination of solar, EVs and battery storage will create energy independence for Americans.
Luckily, Peter’s friend Shawn has a successful exterior renovation business in Charlotte and was the perfect partner to form Southern Home Solar.
