National Custom Home Builder of the Year

Gus Rubio


The owner/operator and founder of Gabriel Builders, Gus Rubio first gained building experience working construction jobs during college vacations. After earning a business degree from Furman University, Gus began his career as a quality control manager at W.R. Grace, remodeling rental properties on the side. When he was ready to delve into the home construction full-time, the “culture of quality” remained a part of his character. Today, Gabriel Builders has a Quality Assurance Manager and operates its entire operation from a detailed quality manual. Gus is one of the few Certified Master Builders in the state.

“I love making homeowners’ dreams become reality, the pride in quality workmanship, and the wonderful people we’ve met who we now count among our great friends. It’s about being passionate about quality, service, and relationships.”
