Our mission is to bring a little piece of heaven into the homes that we build for clients. It starts in the way we work with homeowners, attending to their every desire in helping them realize their dream home the way they dreamed, and is solidified in our attention to the details that make our homes unlike any other, exactly the way homeowners want it to be. We strive to make the experience of building a home with us as heavenly as the end result. Our homeowners receive the experience of watching their dreams become reality, with a final product they can truly enjoy and proudly present to whomever walks through the threshold. 

We promise to:
- take every aspect of our construction to a higher standard on behalf of our clients.
- bring a sense of pride and passion for the details into every aspect of the building process from the foundation up.
- respect the property as if it were our own with impeccable attention to cleanliness, privacy, and consideration for the homeowner's wishes.
- offer options and solutions whenever a situation arises or a better way can be identified.
- be forthright and accurate with our word, actions, and deeds, valuing each home we build for the investment it is and the hard earned money that is being placed in our care.


Ingle Builders, Inc. is family owned and operated by Mark and Cindy Ingle. It was established in 1986 and remains successful in low-volume, high-quality custom home building in Lincoln, Gaston, Catawba, Iredell, and Mecklenburg Counties.

​At Ingle Builders, Inc. we bring dedication and integrity to our homeowners in meeting their expectations and fulfilling their dreams.  We have continued to grow largely because our customers are satisfied are happy to refer us to friends and neighbors who are considering building a new home.  We keep our homeowners involved with each step of the process while remaining honest and straight-forward.  Because we live by high standards, we won’t try to find ways to cut corners or cheapen the product; we strive for top performance every step of the way.

Over the years, Ingle Builders has developed strong relationships with the suppliers and sub-contractors we do business with. They know our expectations and they support our needs, even when there are unusual requirements.  Almost all of our business is done locally, and we constantly maintain these relationships.

Ingle Builders employs two highly experienced carpenters with over 50 years combined experience with the company to ensure the highest quality trim detail. Low-volume, reputable, local sub-contractors do the remainder of the work.

We hope you will join us in growing and continuing our business.
