Fantastic garage builder.

Derek is meticulous in his planning & organizing. He has multiple meetings so you know what is going on and as far as future plans. I wanted someone that was going to get it done quickly as my neighbor is the neighbor from .... The concrete was done ahead of schedule. The garage was able to start ahead of schedule. I kid you not they started at 8am on a Thursday morning and they left at 4 pm with just a little siding left to finish. They started Friday at 9 and we’re finished at 11am!! The only thing left was the garage door and evestroughs which were completed within 2 weeks. It was amazing to watch these guys work. This was a custom built 18x28 garage not a prefab!!
They did such a great job my son had them build a more custom larger garage. He was also stunned how fast his went up. Fantastic company that operates like a well oiled machine. His crews were amazing. No swearing, premises always kept clean. Even building inspector was impressed. Thanks again Derek. Sorry it took me so long to write this review!!

New Garage Build

Derrick and his team did an excellent job building my garage. Derrick was very diligent about keeping me informed, and was quick to respond to any concerns that arose (only one minor one). I was very impressed by the reliability, timeliness, sticking to the quote, and quality of workmanship. I would highly recommend Gecko Projects for a new garage build.

Garage build

After calling 4 different companies for quotes found Gecko and figured I’d call for one more quote...... thankfully I did!! Derricks quote was $10000 under all others! Talked with Derrick about what I wanted and in the end spent about $5000 more than the other quotes but had three times the garage and also had the house resided to match the garage!! The work they have done is second to none and they were extremely fast!! After the pad had set the garage was up sided and roofed in 2 days and that includes removing and residing the house!! Unbelievable! Derrick and his crew were a well oiled machine, everyone knew their job and everyone was friendly and polite. Couldn’t be happier. By far the best construction crew I have seen!! If you need a garage built call Derrick and crew are the best of the best!! Will add pictures soon

I hope the garage works out great for you! Thanks again for taking the time to write a review, they help us more than you know. I really appreciate it. All the best...

A well oiled machine..

Exceeded my expectations. Derrick and his guys just finished our 28' x 24' detached garage. The whole process from start to finish was easy, everything was right on schedule and Derrick was in contact with us for every step. They also took on relocating our electrical service from the house to the new garage, then an underground feed back to the house. This went without a hitch and has got rid of the unsightly wires that used to hang over our back yard. I would recommend them without hesitation to anyone who wants a garage built in Calgary.

Thanks John! Yes, moving aerial services to the garage has become a big part of what we do. If the added cost is in your budget, I think it's a great idea for any customer. Thanks for taking the time to write a review. I never gets old, we love hearing that our customers are happy with the finished product, and our process. I hope the garage serves you well and you manage to fit all your tools/toys in there! Thanks again...

Garage Build

Derrick and the staff of Gecko Projects were great to deal with and I am very happy with the new garage they built for me. Communication from first contact to project closeout was timely, clear and concise. Their process was extremely streamlined and left no questions unanswered.

Most importantly, they were on site when they said they would be and completed the project on time, a rare thing in contracting.

I would recommend Derrick and Gecko Projects to anybody seeking to have a professionally built garage.

Double Garage

I recently had my 20 x 22 double garage built by Gecko Projects and I couldn't be happier with the results! Derrick was very professional and knowledgeable, he did a great job of answering all of my questions and explaining the process to me so that I knew what to expect. He was also great at communicating and providing updates along the way which I really appreciated!

I wanted stucco exterior to match my house and I was nervous about how it would turn out but it completely matches the exterior of my house and overall looks fantastic. Also, despite unfavorable weather conditions, the garage was completed within a very reasonable time frame. Overall I am very pleased with how my garage turned out, everything looks/works perfectly - I highly recommend Gecko Projects!

Garage build

When we started to look at building a garage we obtained multiple quotes from various contractors in Calgary. We found that many of the builders were simply not interested in actually estimating what we wanted to build, but rather what was easiest for them to build.
Enter Derrick at Gecko projects. He showed up for an estimate and I explained what we were looking to do. Not only did he listen to what we actually wanted to build but he suggested a few very inexpensive or no cost items that would set our garage apart from the cookie cutter garage packages the "other guys" were offering. His cost was not the cheapest nor the most expensive but the value he offered us after seeing what his standard items included was amazing! The quality of his crews work is second to none and we are extremely happy with the finished product!
I 100% recommend Gecko and if we move and require another garage I won't even phone anyone else! Quality, value and respect- Derrick and Gecko projects is your guy!

Wow, thanks for the fantastic comments! That's great. Always excited to know our customers are happy with the service offered and the quality of our finished product. We work hard to make this a painless/easy process for our customers. Given this is construction, and we work with a lot of unknowns; counter productive things can/do happen. We do what we can to mitigate this and keep things running smoothly. Thanks again for taking the time to write a review. I really hope you enjoy and get some good use out of your garage. All the best!

Garage Demo and Construction

We had an older, deteriorating single garage with a carport that Gecko Projects demolished and replaced with a double garage.

The process was as painless as I could have imagined. Derrick is extremely easy to work with and will entertain whatever questions or comments you have on the process, the construction, materials, etc. The design process is easy and the options provided covered everything I was looking for.

The demolition was completed within one day, the concrete was completed on time, and the garage construction went ahead of schedule. There was no mess or rutting left in the alley, the yard was minimally disturbed, and the adjacent trees (which there were many) were all left intact.

Lastly the garage looks great and everything works as intended. I would highly recommend working with Gecko Projects to complete a garage project.

Really appreciate you taking the time to write a review Madison! Great to know you're happy with everything. Your project really did run smoothly; we try our best to make sure that is always the case; but this is construction and there is always the unexpected! Good to know that didn't play a factor here. I hope the garage serves you well. Thanks again and all the best!

garage

I had been doubtful about building a garage on a very small, overgrown backyard. I knew that it needed a quality builder so based on the reviews, I chose Gecko Projects. They came through in spades. The initial consultation was very helpful in finding out what was involved and Derrick was very knowledgeable and open about the process. They kept me informed throughout and did an excellent job from removing a small jungle of trees and bushes to building the garage itself which came together remarkably quickly and looks fantastic. They even came back and built a nice new fence to close off the yard. Great job guys!

Excellent; thank you Johan! Your yard was a jungle! More so this summer than when we met in the spring. Was sad to see those apple trees go, but you certainly couldn't keep them and get a garage. Thank you for taking the time to write a review, I'm glad you found it to be pain free/easy process, and are happy with the finished product. Thank you so much for your business and support, just let me know if you ever have any issues with the garage that you'd like me to address. All the best...

20 X 20 Double Garage

This company is unbeatable! Derrick is professional, personable and is an expert in building garages. He communicated efficiently the entire way through the process, I always knew what was happening and what was coming next. He answers emails/questions quickly and thoroughly. His crew are really pleasant and work quickly. The garage they built for me is solid (excellent materials/foundation) with quality workmanship all the way through. Being a single woman, I had concerns about removing existing fencing, wood etc. Derrick and his crew took care of all of that for me. I appreciated and enjoyed the process all the way. GECKO definitely goes above and beyond!
Thanks so much Derrick and GECKO Projects!
I LOVE my new Garage!!!!!
