What Our Clients Say

[Custom Designed and Built Home]

We searched for years for the right things to come together for our
leap into a custom built home. Although the land and location were
important to us, we soon realized that finding the ideal builder can
be difficult, which is why we would like to instill confidence in
future clients of Grand Gate Custom Homes.

The ideal description of our builder includes communication with quick
response times, quality, price, integrity, personality, high standards
and pride in their work. We found all this in Grand Gate.

Grand Gate standards would be considered extras by other companies and
upgrades were very well priced. All decisions were carefully thought
out and they always listened to our wishes but were not afraid to
suggest what would and wouldn’t work, giving us the choice. They work
in a respectful calm matter with safety and security in mind and
choose others to work with them with the same work ethic. We were
made to feel like the center of their attention during the whole

We love our new home and would do it all again with Grand Gate Custom

Greg, Matt and Gina thanks for all your hard work!


Why we decided to renovate our home:

There are many reasons why people choose to renovate their homes. We decided to renovate because it would not only increase our homes value, update the look, and need repairs but overall to simply beautify our home so that it would be more appealing.

We chose Grand Gate Custom Homes because we had seen Greg & Matt’s superior work and knew we could put our trust and full confidence into the renovations that were needed for our 103 year old home.  

Greg & Matt were very courteous, professional and felt that quality was the most important part of the job. They took the time to walk through our home, give us suggestions and then formalized it with a quote. 

We decided to put down wood laminate throughout our main level, ceramic tile in our front foyer, ceramic tile on our backsplash in the kitchen, remodeled our pantry closet with wire racking for better use of storage space.  They installed berber carpet to our second level and down the hallway. The master bedroom was completely remodeled with new walls, a ceiling, and his and hers closets separated by mirrored make-up vanity. They also laid the beautiful wood laminate in the bedroom. 

Grand Gate’s renovations kept the heritage of our home along with adding additional character too. 

We can highly recommend Grand Gate Custom Homes to you and your family. They are truly a business that cares about making a house a home!

Thank you,
Shelly & Jeff Humphrey of Guelph, ON

[Rental Renovation – turning a duplex into a tri-plex]

This is an e-mail to commend Greg on his work at University Ave. He built a complete 4 Bedroom basement apartment for me and the finished product was above my expectations. He was on budget as quoted. He used above standard materials and fixtures. He built the place as if he were building it to live in himself. His knack for detail, his contacts for the decorating and coordinating of colours was very impressive.

He was very patient and flexible to make changes during the building process.

He also, during the design phase, suggested a change that allowed us to build a 4-bedroom unit instead of a 3 bedroom. This was a huge suggestion by Greg!!

At the completion our neighbour came over to look at the job and summarized the job..." who do I contact to rent this 5 star place! ".

I recommended Greg to anyone doing renovations or upgrades!!!!

[Basement Finishings]

We wanted a contractor to finish our basement to ensure that we would have a professional looking finish. We knew that this would contribute to our enjoyment of the space as well as provide the greatest value for resale. 

We hired Grand Gate Custom Homes because we trusted them with our home.  They worked out the design with us and provided a lot of valuable suggestions to enhance the look of the space. 

We are very happy with the quality of the results and hope to work with Grand Gate again in other parts of our home.


When Grand Gate Custom Homes came to my house to completely renovate my bathroom I was very impressed to find that they were so diligent in making sure that they had everything completely organized and were able to move forward at a pace that made us all very happy.

Once the bathroom was 100% complete we were able to appreciate all of the work that was done and have enjoyed it every day since.  Thank-you for a fantastic job done, we'll be sure to contact you again!

[Basement Finishings]

We were looking to finish our basement and increase our living space and had Grand Gate referred to us through a mutual friend who spoke highly of their building and refinishing work.

I was particularly impressed with Greg's knowledge, his ideas regarding detail and finish, and how our ideas could best be incorporated to fit our project.

Potential obstacles were dealt with prior to becoming problems.

The quote was the most reasonable for the work needed to be done and included what other companies called “extras.”

This work is “Quality!”
