Better Quality Control

Fewer contractors doing more of the work means we control quality and don’t finger-point. Communication is easier when you work together.

Here's how we started

Back in 1987......

Chris Santoro graduated from East Carolina University with a bachelors degree in finance. At the time, Chris’ father was a local realtor and homebuilder. After working in finance for a few years, Chris realized that he enjoyed spending time outdoors and wanted to follow in his fathers footsteps in the construction industry.

He started learning everything that he could about residential construction. Chris didn’t sit behind a desk though, he was out in the field working his butt off.

Chris and Tom began cooperatively managing building projects together and eventually formed Four Oaks Development Co. in the early 90s. The father and son team built custom homes,  and had a corner on excavation, masonry, and concrete services in Johnston County.

The housing market took a turn for the worse during the housing market crisis of 2008. New building starts plummeted and every vendor, builder, and supplier found it hard to collect the debts that they were owed. Many local businesses had to shut down for good.

Four Oaks Development Co. was also struggling to meet growth goals, but the owners had a new idea. The business took on a new name and was completely restructured. This is how Four Oaks Residential was formed.

It was decided that we would offer turn-key packages to homebuilders that include footing, foundation, and concrete flatwork. We would also decide to offer support services to enhance our core services. Drainage solutions, retaining walls, light grading, and culvert installation are just a few.

So, fast forward 10 years or so and here we are today with over 3,000 projects completed and armed with 25+ years of experience. Custom homebuilders, modular home manufacturers, and mobile home sales centers are our typical clients. We also work with remodelers, addition contractors, and homeowners too.

We offer an experience that other firms can’t compete with. Our general manager’s deep knowledge of construction brings our clients top tier consultation. Our field crews consist of experienced machine operators, expert masons, and concrete finishers.

Our goal is to make your life as a builder easier. We control the first phases of construction: footing and foundation. This means that we will cover all aspects of those phases, even the inspections.

Trust and quality are a major priority for our team. We focus on providing quality residential construction services at a fair price. With over 3,000 projects completed, we have the complete trust of our existing clients. Purchase our turn-key solutions and you can forget about hiring multiple subs for every job. One call covers it all!

Four Oaks Residential is based in Four Oaks, NC. We reside in the heart of Johnston County and love working with builders in our area. We typically work in Johnston, Wake, Wayne, Sampson, and Harnett counties but will travel outside of those boundaries if the job is of considerable size.

We are a BBB Accredited company, and a member of the Johnston County Home Builders Association. You can find us on Google, Facebook, Instagram, and Thumbtack.
