Scott Knapp, State Certified General Contractor

A dedication to detail and first rate quality home building are the foundations of Capitol Homes. As the President of Capitol Homes, Scott Knapp personally visits each jobsite routinely to ensure every project is running smoothly. As a state Certified General Contractor (CGC) since 2007, Scott holds the highest attainable construction license in the state of Florida and can oversee residential, multi-family, and commercial projects. Having performed residential and commercial projects throughout the state has helped Scott fine tune the scheduling and budgeting aspects of projects, assuring happy customers at project completion.

Born in Lexington, KY and raised in Englewood, FL since the age of two years old in 1985, Scott has had the pleasure of growing up in paradise. After attending the University of North Florida's Building and Construction program, Scott knew he always wanted to return to Englewood with his wife Kate to build their business and be closer to his family, who have a local medical practice. As a lover of the outdoors, Scott enjoys fishing, golfing and riding motorcycles in his free time.
