Happy Customers

Dean and the team were a dream! Contractors as a rule are an industry you want to vet carefully so I needed to get this right for a major renovation project on my home. Having spoken to many, site visits by less, and it was down to Goodwood or ‘contractor B’. The reason I ultimately chose Dean and his colony of worker ants is they are family to him. There is a familial responsibility he expects of his crew. To treat the customer’s home as if it were their own and to make the situation right in any way possible should the need arise. To top it off, the work was done quickly, efficiently, and to the quality and finishing touches that my better half expected. If you are looking for a dream renovation rather than contracting a nightmare….you can’t beat Goodwood General Contractors!

Goodwood Contracting has been a pleasure to deal with and has provided quality work for several jobs big and small at my home. They are very reliable and affordable and nice guys too. They did a great job at cleaning up some details in my bathroom that another contractor had overlooked as well as in my kitchen. Thanks guys, keep up the good work.

From the day we first met with Dean and his team to the end of the project and after we were and still are blown away by the teams professionalism, knowledge and craftsmanship. We came with a very difficult and challenging project and they handled it in an a way we never thought possible, from the pricing to the execution it was beyond expectations!

We had spoken with other commercial contractors from Simcoe County as well as the GTA and the price points were tens of thousands higher than what Goodwood were coming in at. We were updated daily on the project and never had a doubt or worry that we were not in capable hands! We look forward to a long lasting relationship with Dean and his team for our future projects.

Professional perfectionists describes the Goodwood team. From the first phone call, to the last handshake, the Goodwood Team operates with integrity, honesty and skilled precision. The project came in on time, on budget and a painful renovation process was made fun and enjoyable. Dean responded promptly and accurately to any issues along the way and both he and his team delivered beyond our expectations.

We have already referred Goodwood contracting to 4 others and look forward to the opportunity to do it again and agaIn. Dean at Goodwood is a detail oriented guy and it’s obvious that he lives by the standard “anything worth doing is worth doing well”. If you’re looking for a contractor you can trust to deliver a great project, there’s only one call to make – Call Goodwood General Contracting.

We recently had an addition put on our home. Dean and his team took care of everything and it turned out just like I had envisioned. Excellent work and we are now enjoying our lovely new space which we had been dreaming about for a long time. Dean is very good at keeping the client on budget!

Throughout the course of The job, Mr. Van Greunen was a consummate professional. He was accurate in his initial assessment of the project and was very accommodating with scheduling that addressed the need to continue day to day operations within the kitchen area while completing the job in a timely manner.

The job was completed with care and precision. The contractors onsite were clean and tidy and very considerate of the working environment and the need to maintain low levels of noise and debris within the facility. I would recommend Mr. Van Greunen and the team at Goodwood General Contracting without hesitation.

we would highly recommend Dean and his crew of Deanwood contracting. They have done several jobs for us. we needed a major reparation of the en-suite shower. Several months later it leaked again and dean came back promptly to fix the problem, only charging for the new materials. We also had a wood floor installed in the hallway, which was beautifully done.

Dean is extremely honest in his suggestions and estimates, and all work was completed promptly. It was a pleasure to have the crew in the house.

We would like to express our appreciation to Good Wood for the outstanding total renovation on our new house basement in June 2014.

At the beginning, our basement was full of stuffs from the moving one year ago. We just worried how we can move them out and where to store them. Dean offered an idea to make a mezzanine in our garage and he kindly built it at very reasonable cost. We had only one weekend to empty the basement and we could not finish it, but the Good Wood’s team helped us to move the heavy things out. So the problem was solved.

During the project, the Good Wood staff was very helpful, courteous and efficient. They turned awkward comers and vents into shapes and made smart use of all available spaces. Lynnett did not mind working double hard to satisfy us with choices of paints and colors for each room and area. Her expertise was exceptional to make all colors to go in harmony from ceiling to floor. Obviously, Dean and the team were very experienced and took pride in their work. From start to finish, the whole project was handled very professionally.

One thing we highly appreciate was that before finishing up the basement Dean allowed us to move in all bulky furniture. The Good Wood staff then finished it by fixing up all scratches and upgrading the stair way to make a beautiful entrance into the basement.

We recently had a big meeting with about 20 friends in our house We’ve had so many compliments from them on our basement. And one of our friends already asked Dean to work on her basement.

It was very easy and a pleasure working with you, Dean. The renovation was done beyond our expectation. And we continue enjoying it,

Thanks Dean, Lynnett and the Team!

Goodwood General Contracting recently completed an exterior patio door retrofit project on a number of homes in the Timberwalk Condominium Community.

The workmanship was excellent and the attention to detail was impeccable. The work was completed within the project time line and every owner was satisfied.

In addition, your workers were professional, easy to approach and very helpful to residents and to the Staff.

We find Goodwood General Contracting’s performance to be outstanding and would recommend their services to anyone looking for a reputable contractor.

Should you have any questions or require additional information please contact the undersigned.

We were introduced to Dean and Lynette in 2006 when selecting a contractor to build a rather elaborate deck on the back of our house. From the moment they started Dean and Lynette took charge and handled every detail as if they were working on a project for themselves. When any changes were necessary, they accepted them without argument or complaint. The job was finished on time and on budget and we received a refund of an over payment on the job. We were thrilled and awarded the contract to Goodwood to renovate our commercial building in Oro-Medonte. Again the project was handled with care and came in on time and on budget. The attention to detail was tremendous and on a number of occasions small items that were not included in the original Plan of Work were completed without complaint or up charge.

Since then we have become friends with Dean and Lynette sharing life’s ups and downs together. They are always there for us and have given freely of their time and their empathy during some very trying times. Dean and Lynette exist in that rare group of human beings that are givers rather than takers. We have come to know of their charitable work through their church in the “Out of the Cold” program and Dean’s personal efforts to counsel troubled youth. The easy way for most of us to be charitable is to write a cheque. Not Dean and Lynette. Every week they give of their time and their wisdom to others in need with no expectation of applause or reward.

Their personal belief system and their faith demand honesty and we have never once had any cause to question it.

Should you require any further information from us, please do not hesitate to contact us.

We have known Dean and his family for over 10 years. We began our relationship as strictly business after searching for a company that would give us quality of workmanship, respect and someone who would understand that our unique family means the world to us and that our money is hard earned.

We tried using companies that were well known around Barrie but felt that they were abusing their reputation to overcharge without quality. We were skeptical at first but learned to trust Dean and his judgment; mostly we learned that Dean wanted US to feel that we got value, quality and respect for our investment. He was always open to our ideas and perspectives as we had to live with the results.

We ended up doing ALL of our renovations through GOODWOOD. This included a complete overhaul of our entire house and property. He came in on time and well under budget. In fact, we were so pleased at the value he added to our house and how he, his employees and his family treated us that we quickly became great friends.

We have continued our friendship with his family and will only use Dean and GOODWOOD General Contracting on future matters, both big and small, with our family’s property investments.

I hope that this underscores the great respect and admiration we have for the conduct of Dean Van Greunen and GOODWOOD General Contracting; this is something we hold in exceptionally high regard and do not apportion indiscriminately or licentiously.
