  • Carolina Sauna recently converted one of our walk-in closets into a Sauna. What started with an inquiry as to "is this possible" turned into an amazing reality. Tim Metzer and his team delivered us turn-key best-in-class service from first call to final installation. The craftsmanship is outstanding, cost was exact to the quote and the install team was very friendly and knowledgeable. Overall, the entire experience exceeded our expectations.

  • I am a single family custom home builder and Carolina Sauna recently completed the second sauna installation in the last 5 years for my company. In both installations, Carolina Sauna provided excellent service, quality materials and the attention to detail on the installation that my customers expect when building a high end custom home. Tim’s professionalism and communication with the home owner and builder prior to, during and after installation make my job easier and I look forward to working with Tim and CS on the next project.

  • We highly recommend Tim Metzer for any size sauna design and installation project. We have worked with Tim on two different saunas and have been more than pleased with each design. From the very simple design to the more elaborate designer space, he provides personal service, attention to detail and customization to fit the client’s needs.

  • Our builder introduced us to Tim Metzer of Carolina Sauna during the construction of our custom home. The service that Tim provided then was great, and he made the process easy. It has now been 6 years since we built, and whenever we need help with our sauna, Tim responds quickly. He has never made us feel that service ended when the sauna was complete. That is so rare now-a-days. We highly recommend Carolina Sauna to all, for we truly believe that Tim and his team will not disappoint.
