Crafting Exceptional Homes Since 1957

Whitlock Builders celebrates more than 65 years of exceptional craftsmanship, building high-end, luxury homes across the Carolina Piedmont region.
This family-owned, award-winning company leverages unparalleled expertise to bring intricate, detailed architectural visions to life. Beautiful residential structures ideally suited to individual homeowners emerge from Whitlock’s dedication and expertise.

Established in the ideals and practices of founder Hubert Whitlock, Whitlock’s perfectly crafted residences last generations. The strong reputation for quality and customer service traces back to the standards that Hubert Whitlock set in motion in 1957.

Whitlock Builders is a third-generation company with an extensive history in the region and a commitment to the community. The company
operates as a General Contractor with unlimited licenses in North and South Carolina. Although most of the company’s work is concentrated in the Charlotte metropolitan area, Whitlock projects are also found in other areas of the Carolina Piedmont and Upstate South Carolina.

The Difference

We keep our promises.

The Whitlock Way is based on our values, which ground us and motivate us to craft exceptional homes.

A completed Whitlock home results from a well-honed process that meticulously communicates and tracks details. Decades of experience and expertise provide a unique vantage to troubleshoot and solve detailed and ambitious architectural designs. We understand that building a custom home or remodeling your current home is incredibly personal. We aim to deliver an outstanding experience worthy of your home’s beauty and integrity. The key to providing that experience is built on trust and transparency.

Our History

Building homes and relationships
with integrity since 1957.

Whitlock Builder’s strong legacy of excellence and service is enviable but not one that we take lightly. It is a legacy built on six decades of hard work and commitment to our craft and clients.

Our founder, Hubert Whitlock, started the company in 1957, focusing on high standards and building solid relationships with clients and trade associates — some that endure to the present day. His vision for innovation, service and excellence continues to guide our third generation company’s future as it creates some of the most sophisticated and beautiful homes in the area.
