Detached Garage - 24x24

Gecko Projects Ltd built our garage in September 2020. We are very happy with the garage and the service that was provided. They were very efficient and kept to the timeline that we discussed which was very important to us. Derrick is very professional, personable and stayed in touch throughout the process. Whenever we had questions they were promptly answered. We had a loft added for storage which turned out great. We would highly recommend using Gecko Projects Ltd.

Thank you Amy! I'm really happy how your project came together as well. I'm glad we were able to get it up as quickly as we did once you had position, and everything came together as planned. Always good to know we have another satisfied customer. Thank you again, all the best, and enjoy the garage! Cheers...

Detached garage

Very happy with a 20x22 rear detached garage project by Gecko! The project included stucco siding and a 30x3 long concrete walkway to the house. The total price is very, very reasonable (considering the amount of concrete used and stucco being somewhat rarer these days). Build quality is excellent.

The key seller for me was communication. From the initial estimate to regular work updates, everything was consistent and timely with Derrick. This is very reassuring for anyone unsure which contractor to choose.

Brief timeline: Derrick came over for a site assessment at the end of July, any remaining details and specs were discussed very efficiently over email, and the contract was signed electronically in mid-Aug. Work started in early Sept and finished by the end of Sept.

Thanks Jonathan. Great working with you as well. Communication is and important 2 way street, and you couldn't have been better to work with as well on that front. Your quick answers to my questions questions, and the questions you posed ensured a successful project. Would love to work with you again, anytime! All the best, I hope the garage serves you well!

AMAZING Garage Build

Derrick and his team were recommended to me by friends and now I know why! He was so great to deal with - so responsive, knowledgeable, helpful and trustworthy! His rates were unbeatable and his work is impeccable. It was truly an awesome experience from start to finish - he went above and beyond several times and the entire process was fantastic and seamless.
Even my neighbours reached out to tell me how impressed they were with the work they watched Gecko do (and some are now going to be having him build their garages too!)
I HIGHLY recommend Gecko & Derrick to anyone looking to build a garage in Calgary!

Garage

To be honest, we are not the type to ever leave a review but If we can give a 10 out of 5 rating for Gecko Projects Ltd. we would! We are 100% satisfied! If you are looking into this business I encourage you to call and speak with Derrick, after one conversation, I guarantee you will have the trust, and confidence to continue with your project!

We are not only extremely happy with the quality of our garage, but the customer service and the professionalism has been by far the best customer service we have ever experienced. The quality of work is taken very serious, the entire crew worked so hard. One of the most impressive things that we noticed was that when the crew came to start building I don't think they even needed to say a word to each other as they all knew exactly what they needed to do as if they all had their own role working like a well oiled machine, not to mention, there was not one time they didn't leave the work space spotless before they left for the day. You can tell this team has been working together for a long time which says a lot about both their quality of work and management treating them well.

Derrick was SO incredible with his communication, keeping us updated at every step of the way, very detailed and thorough leaving nothing out. Left us with very little questions to ask and allowed us to simply trust in the process of the build! We LOVE our garage and we would highly recommend Derrick/Gecko Projects Ltd. with a lot of pride knowing we chose them. Thank-you Derrick and Team! Worth every penny!

Wow, such kind words! Thanks Stu/Susy; it was great working with you on this project. I have to say, being a 'garage nerd' it's always great tow work with customers whom have put a lot of thought into the design of their garage. Awesome to know you're as excited with the final product as you were during the planning stages. I hope the garage serves you well! Thanks again, and all the best...

Detached Garage Build

If you are looking for a garage builder, do yourself a favor and hire Gecko. Every aspect of our experience with Derrick and his crew was fantastic. From our initial estimate meeting through to the completion of the garage, Gecko performed above and beyond. Every stage of the project went smoothly, with no hassles, and no surprises. The communication, workmanship, and materials are top notch.

I have worked in the building trades myself and it is obvious from the start that Derrick and his crew are a well practiced group who come to the site prepared, and ready to work. They are professional, courteous, and even seemed to be quite OK with my almost continuous inspection of their progress. Their building process is very efficient, and the speed with which the garage went up was impressive.

I would recommend Gecko to anyone looking for value, quality and customer service that is well above what is common these days. In fact, I already have, and I can see my neighbour's Gecko garage floor being poured at this very moment.

Thanks for taking the time to write such a great review Dana! It's greatly appreciated. As discussed, we're always more than happy when our customers are more involved in the build and inspecting our work. We're confident in our abilities, don't mind answering questions, and certainly have nothing to hide! Your involvement throughout only helps ensure we build exactly what you're looking for; which is what we both want. I hope the garage serves you well! Thanks again, all the best with all the future projects you'll be working on in your new garage.

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...
