About the Owner

After nearly 15 years in the building industry, Brett Black opened his own design-build company, Gibraltar Custom Builders, in October 2004.  Following his dream to build uniquely designed projects, Brett uses old-fashioned craftsmanship to create homes with timeless beauty.  His experience as a carpenter, crew leader, and construction manager laid the groundwork for producing high quality finished projects. But his awards for outstanding customer service, high-level safety, and on-time and on-budget completion affirm his passion for pleasing others and meeting client needs.  Brett has lived in the Granville area since 2004 with his wife Teresa and their four children.  He enjoys spending time with his family and being involved in community life.
