Testimonials we are proud of:

In the summer of 2010 we had the good fortune to employ Matt Ander and his crew to do the renovation to our home. Although it was not a large renovation, it was complex, and Matt had the maturity, common sense and flexibility to effectively handle the inevitable surprises that such a project entails. He is an excellent and responsive listener who always followed through on our questions and concerns. We found Matt to be very professional and fun to work with. His initial estimates were well thought out, and he was meticulous about clarifying the additional costs of requested changes, as well as unanticipated problems.
Our renovation came out extremely well and we have subsequently hired Matt for other projects.

Just a note to thank you for your work in fixing the many renovation mistakes that the previous builder made on our house, for transforming the old garage into a workshop with attached car port, and constructing a new garage large enough to accommodate all of our vehicles and a boat.
We are very pleased with the professionalism of you and your crew as they worked on our various jobs, and we appreciated your follow up upon completion.
The integrity and honesty of you and your crew completely took away the stress, which is all too common in the building industry.
The coffee is on any time you feel like stopping and visiting.

with gratitude, Ray and Karen Ball



I have worked with Matt Ander since 2002 on many of my projects ranging from moving, renovating and adding a basement a large home, to building a separate 3 bay garage and a shop on a different property. Matt also built and supervised the construction of our cottage and added a 12 by 32 addition to it.
He built a 36 by 50 foundation with all the mounting hardware, which needed to be in position within less than 1/16th of an inch. Along with his crew, Matt did all the forms and reinforcements for the engineered concrete structure.
I have been very happy with his professional and organized manner as well as his people skills. Matt gets the job done on time and within budget.
I can highly recommend North Shore Builders for any type of construction or renovation project.

In searching for a contractor to build our custom home, we were seeking someone we were comfortable partnering with on such a personal project. Trust, quality, a sense of style, as well as open and authentic communication were the major attributes we sought. From our first meeting with North Shore Builders we felt this and a partnership in building our home began. Matt took the time to get to know us and how we lived and incorporated our ideas into the design. It is great working with a team like NSB that is dedicated to ensuring that we were satisfied throughout the building process. They took the time to answer all of our questions and make sure we had the information needed to make decisions.
We recommend North Shore Builders to anyone seeking a true partner for their custom building projects.

Matt and his team built our home in 2011. Right from the beginning Matt was a very hand's on, hardworking contractor. He was on site every day and often worked along side his crew. We made several design changes during our build and Matt was always willing to work with us through those changes. He was always open to discussing our ideas and gave us great suggestions while dealing with any issues that we had in a timely manner. Throughout our construction project Matt was professional, honest, hardworking and knowledgeable. We absolutely love our home and feel that Matt did a great job.
