What We’re All About

Our passion for renovations started with building the vision of our clients for their homes in Waterloo, Kitchener, Cambridge, Guelph, and surrounding areas. With over 30 years of experience in the home building industry, Stephen Gies founded Anckor Construction in 2000. He built his business on several important philosophies that he never tends to forget, including:

To be honest with the customer; good or bad

To get the job done on time

Not to skimp on quality; it never makes anyone happy, including you

To clean up the site when the job is done; the homeowner doesn’t want to have to do it (they should be enjoying the renovation)

We’re Proud of:

  • Our clients: Anckor Construction takes pride in their reputation and clientele, which was built solely on referrals and references from existing clients. This is a compliment to us; we thank each one of our clients for trusting us with their home renovation projects and also referring us to their friends and family.

  • Our versatility: From a simple bathroom renovation to building a new house from the ground up, we can handle any project. No matter what the size of the job is, we put in close attention to details, and same level of professionalism and quality. 

  • A job well-done: We, as a team, love what we do. This can be experienced in the quality of our work and the satisfaction we get from fulfilling the renovation dreams of our clients. More than finishing a renovation, one among the few things that make us happier is seeing the pleasure on a client’s face, as they shake our hand and convey their sincere thanks for a job completed based on their lifestyle.

Our Process – How Anckor Construction Works with You

Your first step is to decide on your basic requirements, whether you’re looking for kitchen renovations or want a room addition built. The next step would be calling us for estimation. Our professionals will then come to your home to discuss your renovation project. And ideally, we provide you with a written quote of the project.

During the first meeting, we’ll go through the following items:

Project requirements – share your dream home renovation with us!

Timelines – what are you expecting for, and what is realistic?

Budget – what do you need to work with?

Measure area – Measure twice and cut once; words we live by.

Inspect structural features of the existing space.

Creative inspiration – do you want us to provide you with interior designs or if you can come up with your own interior designs, we can make the magic happen.

Building permits – will one permit be necessary?

Our warranty – we’ll let you know what is covered under warranty and what’s not.

Later, we’ll process complete information and provide you with a quote, which includes all the features of your project. Now, we’ll leave it to your decision, whether you’ll hire us or another renovation company. We’re happy to provide you with many references of our past clients; you can contact them to ask about us. Or you can also view our project gallery to see what we can do for your home.
