Shirley & Ernie

Ernie & I have had other custom-built homes prior to hiring Emperor Homes to build our final dream home on a lot we previously purchased, so aren’t new to the process. After getting estimates & interviewing other builders we decided to sign a contract with Emperor Homes and haven’t regretted it. The detail, communication & general care & attention by all staff including Michael, Jordan & their trades was one of the best we’ve dealt with. They always kept us up to date, answered our questions & treated us with respect which is very important in the whole process. Recommendations by Michael & others to save us any costs or improve the details were also very welcomed & appreciated. We definitely recommend them!



Dear Mike, I want to thank you and your team for the great work you did repairing my deck. From the first meeting I could tell you were knowledgeable and very professional. Everything went so well. Your guys always showed up on time, were pleasant, polite, hard workers, kept the area tidy and patiently answered all my questions. I will definitely contact you for any building projects in the future and I have already told all my friends about my experience. Thank you!

Karlene & Riley

I appreciated the detail used when pricing out all of the items needed for our new build. Jordan and Mike are professional experts who clearly like what they do. They made the whole process very enjoyable, I would never attempt another build without them! They kept to the schedule and budget, and helped with all the hard choices along the way. These are the people you want to build your home, look no further.

Cheryl & Terry Illingworth

We During the summer of 2018, we hired Emperor Homes after reading some online reviews and visiting a couple of their ongoing projects. We sent an email and in very short order, Mike and Jordan responded. This to us was a very promising sign as communication between contractors and clients is essential for a successful project, and something important to us. Once we had laid out our vision and plans, Mike provided us with a very detailed contract offer which over a few weeks was adjusted and agreed on. Once the project began, we met a couple of the Emperor employees who we found to be very friendly, prompt and excellent at their job. Both Mike and Jordan were always in contact with us to ensure the dates they were planning to continue work fit in with our schedule. I found the sub trades hired by Mike to be top notch with quality work and products. Our back yard patio/pergola and upper deck project was not Emperor's biggest, but we certainly were made to feel like a valued customer. We truly recommend this company.

I have known Michael Duggan as a carpenter/builder since 2005. I needed a new staircase down to the water on my property. He did an amazing job and came up with an idea of a small deck off to the side which I never would have thought of.  All this time later it still stands strong!

Since then I have had Michael do a number of jobs for me since then- renovations, a large custom built shed etc. and all I can say is that working with him has been a pleasure. He does very high quality work, is honest, hardworking, fairly priced and best of all he does what he says he will do and is extremely reliable. Michael Duggan is a pleasure to know and work with. I highly recommend his company, Emperor Homes.

Christine Delaney


I recently contracted Emperor Homes to tear down my existing porch and rebuild it with an added shed. Due to the shape of my lot, it was not an easy project but Michael worked with me every step of the way to overcome any and all challenges. Not only am I extremely pleased with the quality of the work, but his employees were very skilled and respectful during the entire construction period. They were there when promised and continued working daily until the job was completed. I had a couple of minor concerns during the process but they were dealt with promptly; one the same day and one the following day.
One of my major worries when searching for a contractor was finding one who was not only reputable and trustworthy but would complete the project in a timely manner and Emperor Homes definitely met my requirements. I would hire them again in a heartbeat!

My husband and I purchased the 682 Colonia house built by Emperor Homes and we couldn't have made a better choice. The quality of the workmanship and design ideas had us sold. Since we didn't follow the build from start to finish, we had a lot of questions which Michael Duggan gladly answered and explained the building methods followed. The house design had incorporated a legal basement suite which hadn't been built yet. We made the decision to complete the basement suite as it was designed, and hired Emperor Homes to do the work. We quickly learned how much the trades respect Michael Duggan. Pricing is fair for the quality of work and materials being used and will only add value to our home. We have been appreciating the timely project management of the construction. We have seen each phase being worked on and now we are so excited to see the finished work as it's nearing completion. We would highly recommend Emperor Homes.
