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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.

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 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.
