Garage Demolition & Build

We contacted Gecko Projects after reading all the great reviews on HomeStars, and Derrick did not disappoint! We had an existing garage that was more like a shed in a tight inner city location, and Derrick came by (during the height of the pandemic no less) and provided an estimate that included everything from demo to new garage. He even provided fencing to close off the yard and some shelving also! We are extremely happy with the garage and the speed at which it came up was impressive. Even the neighbours came by to remark about how quickly it was finished! Would highly recommend Derrick and his team for any new garage build.

Your project was a fun one to say the least Barry! Tight space to work, especially the removal of your old garage! But it sure came together well; it's great to know you share the sentiment and are equally happy with the end result. Thanks for taking the time to write a review; it's greatly appreciated. Enjoy the new garage, I hope it serves you well! All the best.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review! Always appreciated. I share your sentiment, we have great crew; obviously I'm biased, but they're the best group of guys building garages in town ! Couldn't be happier with the crew we have assembled. Thanks again for the kind comments; I hope you have a great summer, and the garage serves you well this winter. All the best!

Garage

Everything about my experience with Derrick and his team was first class. From Derrick's attention to detail with his quote, to keeping me updated throughout the project, to bringing up ideas I never thought of, to having someone back quick to fix the smallest of imperfections. I have OCD tendancies, so for someone to please me that is a tall task. He did that and more. Everyone on his team and all of his subs were super friendly, even with my little nephew's that stopped by one day. The quality of the work is top notch and worth every penny I spent on my garage and fence. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Gecko to anyone looking to build a garage. You get what you pay for with this company for sure. You just don't get customer service like Gecko provides anymore. Thanks Derrick

Thanks for taking the time to submit a review Jeffrey; greatly appreciated. It was a pleasure to work with you on this project, and I'm (as always) really happy to know you appreciated our process and level of customer service. These projects aren't complicated, so there is no reason for the build process to be. All the best with the garage, I hope it serves you well. I know we'll be seeing/speaking to you in the future with more work happening in your alleyway! Thanks again!

Thanks to Derrick and his crew we have a fabulous finished garage in two days. The workmanship and experienced crew were amazing men. From the initial setup to the finished product they were on time, cleaned up as they worked and everyone worked well together. Dedicated to their job. We would highly recommend the company!

Garage Construction

We had received some really high quotes for building our garage because we were told that the lot was "tricky" and excavation would be difficult. We heard about Gecko and read their reviews. We thought they must be writing the reviews themselves they were so good but we contacted them. They gave a really reasonable quote, took care of everything (permits, timing, they even managed to keep our dogs corralled during the demolition of fences) and completed it really quickly. We couldn't be happier with the end product and can't believe how easy it was to get the garage done on such a tricky lot with no drama. I cannot recommend them highly enough. And they didn't write this review.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review! Your job was a tricky one to say the least, and I don't believe we could have been working in tighter quarters. But it all worked out great, and I'm so pleased you're happy with the finished product. I trust the garage will serve you well! If you ever need anything, you know how to reach me! Thanks again...

New Garage

Gecko Projects is hands down the absolute BEST! When we were first discussing having a garage finally built it was a no brainer that we were going to use Gecko for our build as we know of Derrick's work that he and his team have previously done for friends of ours. From the very beginning Derrick has been nothing but awesome to work with. The professionalism throughout the entire process has been fantastic, we also appreciate being able to customize the garage to exactly how we wanted with our special requests. In the weeks leading up to and the start of the actual build we were always kept in the loop as to what was going to happen or happening so not once did we have any questions that weren't already answered nor did we feel that we didn't know what was going on at our house while we were both at work. We appreciate that fact that Derrick was constantly in contact with us at the end of everyday to check in to see if we had any concerns and let us know they schedule for the upcoming day.

We are also extremely impressed with the efficiency of the crew, not only did they go above and beyond our expectations with how quick the build went but with the high quality of workmanship produced...it certainly shows that care and attention to detail is taken by everyone on the project. Everyone was a pleasure to chat with and we also appreciate that fact that our property was never left a mess, cleanup at the end of everyday was impeccable.

We are very happy with our beautiful new garage, that being said you can depend on us for recommending Gecko to anyone we know who is looking for a new garage! Its been an absolute pleasure dealing with Derrick and the entire Gecko team throughout the whole process.

Thanks again!

Garage

We have nothing but good things to say about Gecko. Derrick has fantastic customer service and his team was quick, clean, and went above and beyond - We have dogs and the crew ensured the yard was secured before they left. From start to finish, the process timeline was clearly communicated. The garage looks amazing, we are so happy! Thank you!

New Garage

After saving money for a few years, I finally had enough for a new garage. As I was researching companies, I came across the Gecko Projects reviews on the HomeStars website. I contacted Derrick and he got back to me right away which was followed by a site visit. After talking for 20 minutes, I knew that Gecko was the company that I wanted to build the garage. We ironed out all the details and as I was preparing for the garage, I realized that the fence needed replacement. So Derrick and his crew installed a great new fence and a garage at the same time. The projects were completed on time and on budget and there were no hidden costs involved. I couldn't be happier with the final products and I am very impressed with the quality and the workmanship and their attention to detail. If any other projects come up in the future I know that I don't need to shop around.

Garage Siding

We found Derrick and his team by chance!
A neighbor a few doors down was getting a brand new garage. We happened to need siding, so I walked over and chatted with the guys to see what their pricing was like and weather they would even do JUST the siding.
I got Derrick's contact info and let him know we had been needing to FINALLY finish our garage. Not only was he professional and kind but he was also understanding and very accommodating.
Within 1 week of contacting him, we were able to get a quote and have the siding completed. The team was fast, efficient, and friendly! Great quality work.

We would 100% recommend Derrick and his team to anybody!
Thanks again guys!
