About Us

Artistic Contractors is Charlotte’s luxury custom home builder. We specialize in top-notch home design/ build services. We are also a premiere general contractor in home remodeling and home renovations. Today, Artistic continues to innovate and adapt with our shifting economy, emphasizing building in the most financially efficient manner possible. With that being said, Artistic will never compromise our standard of quality, or our unique construction concepts.

Our company has the luxury of having two licensed General Contractors (GC) on staff. There are two sides to the construction process, the actual construction and the business side. Artistic is structured to have a licensed GC working not only in the field, but also in the office. This provides clients with piece of mind knowing an expert will be handling all aspects of the construction process.

“2008 Parade of Homes Winner”

With over 15 years of construction experience in Charlotte, Daron began his career at the peak of the custom home surge in the early 2000’s. From an early age, he grew up learning the basics of the construction industry working for his father’s company.

In 2003, Daron became a project manager for his father’s company, supervising projects exceeding two million dollars on average.

In 2006, Daron obtained his NC Building Contractor’s license, enabling him to construct projects on his own, both commercial and residential. Shortly thereafter, he founded Artistic Contractors, which embodied his unique design concepts as a builder. In the years to follow, Daron spent his time building a world-class reputation as one of the premiere builders in North Carolina.

Daron is a Field GC for Artistic and manages all day-to-day operations on site. He schedules all sub-contractors and orders all materials; he is your construction expert in the field.


Drew Rivas

Co-Owner, Office GC
NC License #75904

In 2008, Drew joined forces with Daron to transform the already successful business into a full-service construction company. With his unique perspective sourced from the financial sector of corporate America, Drew brings his expert knowledge of business development and financial concepts to a traditionally blue-collar industry. This has given Artistic an added touch of efficiency and professionalism.

In 2008, Drew acquired a degree in Project Management from Villanova University. This has only helped make the processes and procedures at Artistic more efficient.

In 2009, Drew acquired his NC Real Estate License, further increasing opportunities for Artistic. Having an expert in the Real Estate and Financial fields gives clients a full service approach to all their construction and budgeting needs.

Drew also has his Building General Contractors license which increases the expertise Artistic Contractors can provide. Drew is the Office Manager GC, which means he handles all matters relating to accounting, selections, correspondence and management.
