I contacted Derrick in the summer to get a quote and he called me back within 2 days and arranged to come out to do an estimate. I had called another company as well but didn't get a good first impression. I had the quote from Derrick emailed to me within a couple days. I think the quote was reasonable and the nice thing was that in his email Derrick stated that "the cost to build your garage WILL NOT change during the build unless you request a change in the scope of the project that differs from the agreed upon terms". Now, with that being said, I did make some changes. Some of them last minute which Derrick had no problems accommodating! But, he was correct, the price of the quote didn't change. For example, I wanted to add a light fixture above the garage door so I could install a motion detector. He instead offered a better solution of installing a timer switch in the garage that I could program. Very nice suggestion and it didn't change the price of the quote. Another nice thing was that I had an old 4ft x 10ft shed that needed to be demolished or moved. He offered( at no additional charge) to have his guys come over and tear it down and remove it for me! Also, I had to remove a portion of my fence(which again, his guys helped me tear down and remove)so he installed some temporary fencing during construction to keep anyone from coming into my yard. It was just the little things that he did to accommodate me and it was also nice to hear when I asked " how much extra money will it be to do that" that his response was "nothing, no extra"!!
He was extremely quick to respond either by phone, email or text. His crew is great. They did an excellent job constructing the garage and cleanup of the site was also well done! And fast!! After the concrete set they had the garage built in 2 days minus the garage door(which his guys came over the next the day and installed) and the eavestrough( which his guys came over 2 days after it was built and completed eavestrough). Derrick was great with giving me suggestions as to what to add or things that weren't necessarily worth the added cost( having a gas line installed for a gas heater) for my particular situation. The components they used definitely seem top quality( garage door motor, switches, etc.).
My only problem is that I'll probably only build one garage in my life so I won't be able to use them again!!!! I highly recommend Derrick and Gecko Projects!

Thanks for great review Darryl! You were equally great to work with, I'm disappointed you'll only build 1 garage as well! If you ever need anything going forward, just let me know. All the best!
