We Build One Custom Home At A Time

Your Vision. Realized.

Gary Pettus and his team at Pettus Builders are here to deliver the home of your dreams. They’re also here to make the building process as easy as possible for you and your family. How? With a dedicated project manager to serve as your chief collaborator and single point of contact. With a roster of skilled subcontractors who are second to none in the Carolinas. From master carpenters to finish cabinet makers to skilled roofers, Pettus only works with a shortlist of the area’s best craftsmen. Lastly, Pettus maintains a purposely small client roster. With only a select few projects going on at once, Gary and his team can give your build the time, thought and resources it deserves.

Let Pettus build you something great, on time and within your budget. If you think it, we can build it. All we need to know is when you want to start.

A beautiful home is closer than you think.

Gary Pettus

Gary Pettus began working in the construction industry in 2005. During his nearly two decades in the business, Gary has accumulated a wealth of hands-on building experience as well as design and project-management skills. He is well-versed in every area of home construction.

In 2018, Gary formed Pettus Builders. He founded his company with the core values of forging strong relationships (with both clients and employees), best-in-class service, and sophisticated home design. A passion for building excellence is something that Gary and his employees share and are known for throughout their Charlotte community.

Personally, Gary is happily married with two children. He is an outdoor sports enthusiast and endurance athlete who has completed an Ironman triathlon. When he’s not building, running, or biking, Gary is a licensed pilot who somehow finds it relaxing to soar 10,000 feet up in the air.





Dale Handley

As a project manager, Dale Handley offers Pettus clients a wide range of valuable skills that draw from his diverse construction background. For nearly a decade, Dale worked as a business analyst for a large commercial contractor, which gives him a keen insight into and command over variables that might impact a project’s bottom line. During this same time period, Dale had his own renovation business, giving him an intimate understanding of hammer-and-nails construction.

Based on his background and experience, Dale is ideally suited for his role as a project manager at Pettus. He keeps his eye on both the build and the budget and can deftly guide his contractors and clients through every aspect of a successful project.
