licensed outer banks contractor

Meet Joe Patton

Joe Patton returned home to the Outer Banks after completing his degree at North Carolina State University. He soon fell into the construction industry and has worked on beach homes his entire adult life.

Working through a number of trades, becoming a qualified craftsman, and obtaining his contracting license, and moving into project management gave Joe hands on field experiences that set his work apart.

Aside from genuine passion Joe’s unique advantage is a deep understanding of the intricacies of construction and ability to navigate challenges. We view each project as an opportunity to showcase and provide creative solutions while planning and on-site.

I’ve lived here my whole life and I am raising my family here and planning on staying here.  My hope is that clients become friends and when I see them at the grocery store etc., we can exchange pleasantries and continue to forge a lasting relationship.

Personalized Construction Solutions

When you choose Patton Contracting, you’re not just hiring a contractor – you’re welcoming a partner who cares deeply about your project’s success. Our promise to you is open and effective communication, ensuring you’re informed and engaged throughout the construction journey.

We understand the significance of your project – it’s not just a structure, but a place where memories are made and futures are shaped. Our goal is to create lasting products that stand as a testament to the love, care, and attention to detail we put into each and every project.

My team and I take a lot of pride in what we do, and I want clients to feel that as well. I promise communication, quality, craftsmanship, and customer satisfaction!

Our vision

Patton Contracting is committed to completing construction goals to the best of our ability.  We are driven by progression, the challenge of creating or recreating living spaces, and growing my business to provide the very best for my family.

Your contracting project may be one of the largest investments in your life! We do not take that lightly.  After years of hands-on field experience, we strive to plan and problem-solve passionately for our projects.

Linda Lane Renovation

This remarkable renovation construction project, skillfully executed by Patton Contracting in 2023, has redefined coastal living. Featuring a top-floor renovation, garage addition, and the creation of new front decks, this project is a testament to our dedication to craftsmanship and customization.


Our recent home construction project, the Virginia Dare Trail Home Addition in Nags Head, is a testament to our commitment to craftsmanship and attention to detail. This stunning home addition consisted of a Master Suite and Covered Porch, featuring custom touches that elevated the overall design and functionality of the home.

VANSCIVER DECK restoration

The foundation of the Vansciver deck restoration was the use of natural cedar wood railing, which not only added durability but also brought an organic warmth to the deck. To create a striking visual contrast, we incorporated white accent wood, a timeless choice that echoed the charm of coastal cottages.

Customer Success Stories

Lisa Preston
I highly recommend using Joe Patton for any repairs, rebuilds, or add on's to enhance your property. Patton Contracting LLC rebuilt my decks, stairs, and built a storage room under my home. All the work was done with attention to detail. Every board was sanded to perfection . His crews were on time and efficient. Any questions or concerns I had were immediately addressed by Joe himself, not a middle man. Joe and his crew were patient and attentive to all details as if they working on their own homes. The quote that we received was spot on and there were no hidden costs. Any possible changes to the final price was discussed ahead of time and agreed upon. I would highly recommend Patton Contracting for any project and will definitely be hiring them again for future projects.

Just had Joe and his team totally reside my house, install new lighting, make the exterior completing low maintenance, paint and perform electrical work. Everything was done as promised, on time and looks beautiful. Joe is excellent to work with- he's responsive, friendly, proactive, helpful and honest! Highly recommend!

Joe Patton and his team really came through for us in a clutch situation. A complete structural rebuild of our deck, stairs, door jams, etc. completed in record time in inclement midwinter conditions has left our 1978 beach box on sticks looking and feeling like a brand-spanking-new luxury cottage. Like a vice grip on our future. Professional, respectful, diligent, friendly, punctual and thorough with amazing attention to detail, Team Patton is just the best. -Matt Pruett and Lauren Evans, Southtown OBX.
