My wife and I purchased a new house built by Drake Construction in 2022. We are very happy in our home. Drake Construction did a great job building our home. We highly recommend Drake Construction to build your new home.

- Walter K.

We built our first home with Drake Construction a little over a year ago and could not have had a better experience. Ron’s 20+ years of experience make him extremely trustworthy and gave us the confidence we needed as first-time homebuyers. He provided clear and timely communication regarding updates to the house. As a customer, you can be sure that Ron has your best interest in mind. We will be using Drake Construction again for all of our future home projects & needs. My wife and I gladly recommend Drake Construction!

Ron Drake was wonderful to work with! He did a complete renovation of our beach house and was so helpful, efficient, trustworthy, and did fantastic work. We continue to use him for any repairs and maintenance work, and he even keeps a key in case we need him to check on the house as we live a few hours away! We highly recommend Drake Construction!

- Elizabeth R.

Ron Drake did an extensive renovation of our beach condominium. The quality of his work was outstanding. He had great ideas as we planned the renovations. During construction, he was attentive to all details and hired only the best sub-contractors. Best of all, he was an excellent communicator who always kept us informed. I would recommend him for anyone’s building needs!

- Dawson H.

Drake Construction has been building homes for my clients and my company for 3 years. He has always acted professionally. I appreciate his design ability. He truly has a gift for making gorgeous homes. His features are cutting edge and trendy. He also provides green building features.

Ron replaced our roof shingles on time and with professionalism. His crew was reliable and responsible throughout the job. They cleaned up the area and left us happy with the job. I endorse Drake Construction to anyone interested in similar repairs.

- Rich M.

Drake Construction does meticulous, beautiful, and consistently top-notch work. Also, Ron Drake is someone you can trust and count on, qualities not so easily found these days.

- Vicki S.

Built a custom home for my mother-in-law. Very helpful, accommodating, professional, and skilled.

- John C.

Great experience with this company! Always received timely responses and prompt attention to questions/concerns we had. The quality of work is excellent and top notch. Mr. Drake is a trustworthy person, and we always had confidence in him and his crew. Would highly recommend!

If character and integrity matters when it comes to whom you allow to work on your home, then Ron Drake is an excellent choice. He’s a man of his word.

- Sterling G.

Great builder. Great gentleman. Great crew like Tim.

- Bill W.

Top notch from start to finish replacing our roof. Kept the area clean the whole time and did a fantastic job. Would recommend highly. Were on the job when they said they would be and finished within the time they said they would finish. Top-notch company.

- Jake K.

Drake Construction built the house I am living in, and I love it! Ron did a fabulous job!

- Beverly C.

Our new retirement home was trashed by Florence. We went through 3 contractors before our church recommended Drake Construction. There was way more work than contractors during this time, and Ron, unlike our other contractors, was open and truthful with us, which was a breath of fresh air. He told us how long it would take before he could do the work and was true to his word on everything. The work was top notch, and our home is way nicer now than when we bought it new in December 2016. We had some ideas on changes we were wanting from the original design, and Ron actually showed different ways to get exactly what we wanted at a fraction of the cost. If you want something done and done right, Ron Drake is the best. He truly understands the concept of staying within cost on schedule and providing outstanding performance. Ron Drake will keep you well-informed throughout the process.

- Mike S.

We can’t say enough about working with Ron and his team at Drake Construction! Great eye for design, style, & function. Spent hours with us looking at our lot, showing us some of his homes, listening to our desires, coming up with the perfect design, and then pointing out some changes he would make off the top of his head to make it even better. Great communicator!! We live in NYS and couldn’t be there for breaking ground and much of the build, but Ron was great about sending pictures, video, & texts. He always responded quickly to texts, emails, and calls. Our NC neighbors couldn’t believe how quickly the house went up and how hardworking his crew was. Ron & his crew were almost immediately responsive to design requests and changes/ideas we had. When we went down for our first walk through, our requests for changes of doors/windows/steps were already in progress the next day. Ron is a true craftsman whose work is top notch! We could go on and on but would only be echoing all the other positive comments here. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Ron for a new build or a remodel and would certainly use him again!

- E P.

As a former residential construction manager and builder, I was first impressed with Ron’s attention to the details behind the drywall, the bones of the house. As the construction process moved along, his attention to the more obvious details, such as the trim, paint, cabinetry, etc., continued to shine. Even the drywall, trim, and paint in the garage match the quality of work in the rest of the house. Now, that is attention to detail! I’m not saying that there weren’t challenges. But it is not that there won’t be problems, it is how one confronts and solves them. Ron met each issue head on and worked toward solutions in a professional and caring manner. I highly recommend Drake Construction for your next home build or remodel.

- David I.

Drake Construction builds high-quality, solid homes. You can see the attention to detail that goes into their work. If you are considering this company, just take a walk through one of their houses. That will convince you.

- Theresa N.

Had our house built by Drake Construction in Brunswick County. Ron and Tim were extremely professional and easy to work with. We are very happy with the quality of the house and had an enjoyable experience with our first home build. I highly recommend Drake Construction to anyone looking for a custom home build.

- Michael T.

I am a real estate attorney and work with Ron at Drake Construction regularly. The professionalism and kindness he shows his clients is 2nd to none, and the final product is always top quality. Every single client who comes to my closing table after building with Drake Construction has nothing but wonderful things to say about their new home. I recommend him to all clients who purchase lots with the plan to build.

- Anna B.

Ron and Tim were fantastic to work with. We built our house from across the country. They kept us in the loop all the way on deadlines, meetings, supplies, and everything that goes into building a house. There were a couple of items that did not get finished on time only because of COVID. This was not their fault. They made it right without hesitation. I would definitely use them again on our upcoming projects. We see Tim all the time in the development because of new projects. It is super nice to know that he is around if we ever had any issues. Before we moved in full-time, he was able to check in on the house periodically. What a service! Thank you, Drake Construction!

- R Trent J.

I’ve worked with Ron on several projects, and he’s a hardworking go-getter who aims to please. It’s always a pleasure working alongside Ron.

- Justin S.

This is the best construction company around, and he is a good man to work for!

- Timothy S.

I will be forever grateful to Drake Construction. After Hurricane Florence hit North Carolina, severely damaging our retirement home, we needed help. Ron Drake and his team were there for us. The cleanup was enormous, but Drake Construction hit the ground running. They patched the roof in several places, removed the disastrous mess of walls, ceilings, fans, insulation, and other debris that fell on the wood floors throughout the house. In addition, Team Drake removed what was left of the kitchen, bedroom, and sitting room and remediated the mold and mildew that covered multiple areas.

After nearly a full week of clean up, the real work began. Ron created a beautiful design for the kitchen, a creative lighting plan, installed a new roof, and turned our retirement house into a gorgeous home.

Ron Drake and his team do exceptional work that will not disappoint. If you are looking for a superb contractor/home builder with an outstanding team, call Drake Construction.

- Ellen B.

Ron Drake was fantastic to work with as he built our house on Oak Island, NC. We came to Oak Island and met with Ron a few times; however, we mostly worked with Ron through text and email. He kept us informed the entire time and provided pictures of the progress. He made the process very easy for us. I highly recommend Drake Construction and would not hesitate to use Ron again.

- Ron D.

Ron Drake built a custom home for us in 2023. He is meticulous & pays attention to the details to ensure the house is built right. He has great ideas & makes suggestions that improve the house overall. When issues arise, as they will with any project, he is easy to work with and eager to get things resolved amicably and thoroughly. When Ron says he wants to build a home he can be proud of, he means it. We love our new home, including all the little extras and finishing details. Everybody comments that we have a beautiful house.

- Judith M.

We used Drake Construction for the tear down of our old family beach house and the new construction of our beach house and everything in between. I’m sure this was not the easiest job for them to do as our old house still had the original asbestos siding on it (when I say old, I mean it was old), and they dealt with the entire remediation process. Then, there was Hurricane Isaias and everything that brought along with it. During this whole time Ron was so professional and helpful, I could not have asked for a better experience. Mind you, this was all done while we lived out of town, 3 1/2 hours away. To say we are surprised and so pleased with how easy this was is an understatement. Ron and his crew are so easy to work with. He was always just a text/phone call away. The quality of work is outstanding. We love our new “home away from home” and cannot wait to make new memories there. If you need a remodel or new construction, call Ron Drake – you will not be disappointed! The nicest people around.

Bought a house from Ron Drake in the summer of 2020. My wife and I are very pleased with the house and would recommend Drake Construction to other house buyers.

Good builder and friend. Everything was sooo easy.

- Adrian C.

Ron at Drake Construction and his employees are the gold standard for builders, not just in the Southport area but everywhere. Pre-construction, during construction, and post-construction, their communication, attention to detail, and quality of craftsmanship have been unsurpassed. Everyone we have dealt with at Drake Construction has been pleasant, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful! We highly recommend them.
