Mary Kay and Tom Best – Seven Springs, NC

Every single crew and every single detail was taken care of every step of the way.  Ty Gay and Betty Oakes are top drawer Professionals.   They are very good at what they do.  You can trust them to give you sound suggestions all along the way.  Go ahead and make the right decision to have Ty Gay Builders build for you!  You’ll be glad you did!


Ken and Janice Ghelli – Newport, NC

Ty Gay Builders was the best decision we made for our small kitchen remodel.  Ty was professional, accurate, accessible,  knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with.  His immediate response to our phone calls, texts and concerns was incredible. He did a great job of scheduling his contractors and informing us when they would arrive (all of which were extremely accurate).  He has surrounded himself with great workers and sub contractors, all of whom have a great work ethic.  He was on time, on budget and very helpful.  We would not hesitate to call him if we ever need a contractor again! We will happily recommend him.


Doug and Patricia Noble – Deep Run, NC

Ty Gay Builders recently completed a new home for us to enjoy during our retirement years.  It was by far the best building and home buying experience that we have ever had.

Ty and his very efficient administrative assistant, Betty, were always courteous, helpful, and patient with us from the planning stage to the completion of the building process.  They were only a phone call or email away when we had questions.  Their guidance in making decisions and working out solutions was invaluable.

Ty Gay Builders used only quality materials and experienced sub-contractors who were as attentive to detail as Ty himself.  Even though we were trying to downsize by building a smaller home, we were given the same treatment and provided the same outstanding service as others who have built much larger homes.

We are very happy to recommend Ty Gay Builders for an exceptional building experience


Charles & Barbara Ball – Trenton, NC

In the spring of 2013, we added a much needed family room on to our 100-year-old farmhouse in Trenton.  After getting several bids from different contractors, we decided to use Ty Gay Builders because of his reputation for doing quality work and for the fact that his price was competitive with all the others.  Remodeling an older home can come with many challenges of its own, but Ty Gay’s team met everyone of them and every detail went smoothly.  He did a magnificent job making our new room look original to our 100-year-old home.  Ty was very easy to talk with about all the decisions that came up, and he always gave smart solutions and suggestions to ensure that our room was everything we envisioned it would be.  He cared about every detail and made sure all work was done just right, as if it were his own home.  His team of reputable subcontractors were always professional and performed exceptional on each task at hand.  This project was phenomenal, and we couldn’t be more pleased with it!  Thank you Ty Gay and your team for making our dream come true!  We highly recommend Ty Gay Builders to everyone because they are the absolute best!


Bob Griffin – Kinston, NC

Getting a quote from Ty Gay was the best decision which I made.  Not only was his quote less than the others, but his decades of building experience proved invaluable.  I built my new house on the banks of the Neuse River.  He assisted me in working through the difficult building code issues of constructing a house in the flood plain.  Now I have a beautiful house overlooking the river.  Many times I saw how important it was to choose an experienced builder with a good staff.


Ben & Summer Daniels – Grifton, NC

Ty was very patient with us waiting as we chose the right plan.  As soon as we made our decision, it was full steam ahead.  Ty’s subcontractors were wonderful and did outstanding work.  We have heard nothing but positive stories about Ty Gay Builders.  Now I can share our story and commend them on a job well done.


Marshall and Angie Malone – Falling Creek Golf Course, Kinston, NC

When you ask Ty Gay to take on a project, he is involved in every aspect of the day to day progress.  He makes himself accessible and visible.  He wants to know daily if you are satisfied with the project thus far.  The quality of the work is exceptional.  He expects the best from his men.  The experience was great.  I highly recommend Ty Gay Builders for new construction or renovation projects such as ours.


Janet & Dwayne Jackson – Snow Hill, NC

We are very satisfied with our laundry room addition that your company completed for us.  You and your employees showed a great deal of assistance and patience in working with us during the project.  Your team displayed a culture of professionalism & most importantly quality workmanship.  The Laundry room is everything we envisioned it would be.


Michael & Jimi Hill – Lenoir County

Working with Ty Gay builders was fantastic!  Ty patiently worked with us to get our house plan just like we wanted prior to construction.  His experience was evident in the way he was able to anticipate issues and offer practical suggestions to avoid them.  Small details were important to him throughout the process.  Ty and his assistant, Betty made the decision-making process not feel overwhelming.  Ty has also been available to us since the completion of our home.  We couldn’t be happier with our experience!


Tom & Judy Greenwood – Cutter Creek Plantation, Snow Hill, NC

Ty was the perfect choice for us because this was our first fully custom built home, and we needed an experienced builder with a reputation for quality and attention to detail.  Ty and his team fit our need perfectly.  Located in Snow Hill at the new Cutter Creek Plantation and Golf Course, the house needed to be custom designed and built, with quality to match the setting.  Ty and his team do a great job and we can recommend them without reservation to others for any type of home construction.


Donna Pellitier – LaGrange, NC

In the summer of 2012 I had a sunroom and a patio addition built onto my house.  Ty Gay Builders Inc. did the job.  I am a very satisfied homeowner.  He wasn’t the highest bid for the job and the time it took to complete the addition was right on target.  No one would ever realize that it was an add on.  He offered very smart suggestions when needed and also when I asked for them.  I also liked the suggestions for my patio.  I would highly recommend him to anyone.


Ned and B.J. Craft – Ayden, NC

We highly recommend Ty Gay Builders. Ty built our home in Ayden, a 2500 sq ft brick house with custom trim, hardwood and tile flooring, custom bath, tray ceilings, stamped concrete deck – many custom features. He worked with us diligently to ensure our home would reflect everything we envisioned, patiently guiding us through the maze of decisions necessary to create a truly custom home. Ty has only the bests contractors working with him, and the finished product reflects the pride they take in their craftsmanship.

And we cannot say enough about Betty Oaks, his administrative assistant. Betty kept us sane and organized through the entire process.

If we ever build another house, we definitely will call upon Ty Gay Builders again.


Tim and Lisa Butler – Kinston, NC

We came to Ty when we were deciding on whether to build our second home. We have not regretted our decision to use Ty. He was with us every step of the way and his office staff was always on top of things which made it all run smoothly. It will be 5 yrs Nov. 08 since we moved in and we have a strong, sturdy, well-built home and we love it!! We strongly recommend that anyone looking to build, give Ty an opportunity to bid and then compare material and pricing (“apples to apples”) and you will see what we saw—Quality, Commitment, and Excellence before, during and long after the closing.


W. Anthony & Della Lawson – Kinston, NC

It is a pleasure to write this brief statement of endorsement for Ty Gay Builders, Inc. Three years ago Ty Gay Builders built our new home in Kinston. The overall experience was very good. We feel that we got a well-constructed home at a very competitive price.

Ty and his staff were always courteous, patient, helpful and attentive. They were always willing to answer any questions and they were prompt to address any concerns that we had during the building of our home. The office secretary was extremely helpful.

The subcontractors that Ty Gay Builders used were all competent in their areas of expertise and basically easy to work with. The building of a house is a very stressful endeavor. Ty Gay Builders made the process easier and smoother. I hope to live in my present home for the rest of my life, but if I ever build another home I would definitely choose Ty Gay Builders as my contractor. They build a very distinctive, well constructed product.


Randall and Diane West – LaGrange, NC

We were sold on Ty Gay Builders from the first phone conversation. You knew he was a builder who cared about you and our future retirement home. He and his staff always gave you honest and accurate information. Having already built several houses we wanted a quality house built by the best builder and that’s what we got. We have whole-heartily and without reservation recommended Ty Gay Builders to several people.


Bill & Susie Waters – Henderson, NC

Having known Ty Gay for a number of years and being familiar with his reputation for quality and integrity we contacted his firm after a decision was made by us to build a new house at Kerr Lake. From the planning process to the final finishing of our new house and garage we were extremely satisfied. Even though the construction site was located over 100 miles from Ty’s office the job was handled smoothly and with a high degree of professionalism. Ty Gay Builders, Inc. is to be commended for its choice of Subcontractors. We would highly recommend Ty and his crew for any construction project anyone might have.
