Contact us to request an estimate for any of our services.



We specialize in remodels and additions, from single rooms to whole-house renovation.  Our approach is hands-on: the contractor or project manager will be working at the site along with the subs most days, actively supervising all work.

Fully licensed and insured, we have stellar ratings on Angie’s List, Houzz, BBB and more.  We can furnish a long list of satisfied customers who will be happy to share with you why Shank Building and Design was the right choice for their project.

When choosing a contractor, remember:  a renovation or addition project is a big commitment of time and resources, and requires trust.  You will have a working relationship and almost daily contact with your contractor for several months, who will be responsible for many people coming in and out of your home.  When comparing bids, talk to clients on the contractors’ referral lists, interview the contractors personally to gauge personality match, and then choose the company whose professionalism and reputation make you feel most confident to move forward.


Here’s why teaming up with Shank Building and Design means that you can Build with Confidence:

  • Proven track record and a long list of satisfied customers


  • What is your service area?

    South Charlotte and immediately surrounding towns/suburbs (Matthews, Ballantyne, Weddington).

  • Do I need plans in order to get an estimate?

    For most jobs other than simple cosmetic changes, our estimate will be a very wide range of numbers (low end to high end) if you haven’t had plans drawn.  With at least rough (schematic) plans, we can estimate more realistically.

  • If I don't have plans drawn yet, what's the first step?

    We can visit to discuss your ideas and goals with you, and our designer can give you an estimate of the cost of developing the design and drawings for you.  This service is separate from the building contract, and you can use these plans to get estimates from other builders as well.

  • Will you bid other designers'/architects' plans?

    Of course!  We can design the project OR build the project OR we can do both.  You are not tied to using both sides of our services.

  • How is the project initiated once I have an acceptable estimate?

    Assuming that the estimate was based on schematic drawings rather than detailed contract drawings, the schematic set needs to become a contract set with the addition of details, notes, and any additional sheets needed for permitting.  Once these drawings are complete, we will write up a contract based on them, specifying the work and total costs.  The contract is initiated with your signature and a deposit.

  • How long will my project take?

    Answers vary widely depending on scope of project.  We estimate our finish times conservatively and try never to promise a finish date that is unrealistic.  We can discuss a rough estimate of completion time at our initial visit.
