Our Client Testimonials


Lisa and I started our journey to build our forever home. We were unbelievably fortunate to find DHP and their wonderful staff to help us make this happen. Throughout the entire process they made it seem easy and helped immensely with design, architectural, and final product look. Dave was our initial contact, wanting our build to be fun, ensuring us his staff were there to help and make this all that we wanted. Simone and Bill stepped in and truly supported us for ideas, sanity checks, and staying on budget. Schedules, updates, and timelines were always met, in fact they were consistently ahead of our expectations. The quality and high standards in DHP homes are beyond all others we investigated; our journey was made easy because of this great team The trades and workmanship is reflected in our home; we couldn’t be happier. We have told many friends and family that on a scale of 1-10 this team is a 15!! No surprises, we received everything detailed out during the build schedule; Bill was excellent with communication. Our forever home is beautiful, in a great location and fulfills our dream. Thank you DHP and everyone behind the scenes who worked tirelessly to make this happen.

Cliff and Lisa


As both first-time homebuyers and home builders, we were nervous yet excited to embark on this journey. Each member of the DHP team was very helpful with guiding us through the entire process from start to finish, and adapted smoothly to all of the changes we made along the way. While there were some unavoidable setbacks with the building process, the highlights of the build overshadowed everything else, and the final product was more than we could ever ask for. We are so thankful for their ongoing follow up with us even a year after the build was completed. DHP does not build entry-level homes!

Matt & Dee


Building our forever home with DHP was seamless from the very beginning. As first time builders, we had a lot of questions and requests – DHP always stuck to their commitment to provide realistic answers and timelines. I would recommend building with DHP to anyone, the care and pride they put into their builds separated them from other builders we considered – by the end we felt like we were working with friends. We love our custom home!

Kaitlyn and Brian


We absolutely love our new house! After seeing some of the homes DHP had built, we knew a quality home was going to be built for us. We feel that the overall quality and craftsmanship is top notch. It truly exceeded our expectations. We continually receive compliments on our new home. We have heard comments like, “This is so much more beautiful than we expected”, “You picked a good builder”, WOW! the quality is amazing”.

We are thankful for choosing DHP as our builder, we made our decision after talking with Dave the very first time. He addressed our needs and fulfilled our wishes to build our dream family home. He welcomed our ideas and eagerness to be involved with the building process than the average homeowner. He truly followed our thoughts and understood our ideas perfectly.

We enjoyed working with Bill, the time he spent with us as we worked through multiple floor plans and budgets, met with the contractors, made decisions, picked things out for the house (changed our minds and picked out different things for the house) made the whole experience stress free.

Bill was excellent in communication. Hardly a day went by that we did not communicate with him through phone, email or text messages. The constant updates and communication with him really made the process easier and made us feel more involved in building our home. Every suggestion from Bill along the way lead us to a more efficient or better design in the end.

We also enjoyed working with Simone who was a huge help with the daunting task of picking out colors and styles of flooring, countertops, cabinets, paint, light fixtures, etc. It was so nice to have someone like her to offer additional insights and opinions. She was truly a joy to work with, her kind, nice and patient demeanor made this process very enjoyable.

DHP also chose the very best in subcontractors and we were so pleased with the professional service and quality installations from each one of them. They were constantly pushing for quality and productivity throughout the building process and that is exactly what we received. Their crew worked hard every day comes snow, rain or shine. They are highly skilled and were so accommodating to us.

We count Dave, Bill, Simone and the rest of the DHP skilled crew as friends and doubt many people who have a home built can honestly say that their builder is a friend after the whole process is completed, unless that building company was DHP Custom Home Builders.

This is our third home build and we would recommend DHP to our friends and family, or anyone who asks about our building process. DHP was on time and on budget, and always there for us. Our expectations were met or exceeded every step of the way! We know that to accomplish what they did for us, requires extra hard work and many sacrifices on their part. We are forever grateful to them. Thank you for job well done!

Gary and Amal


We are extremely happy and exhilarated with our custom home from DHP Construction.

A custom home is a true representation of what us as buyers are trying to envision to be a true dream home and DHP as a builder was able to emulate those details every step of the way – inception to execution. From the time we signed the contract until closing our experience with the DHP team was constantly professional in every aspect of the building process.

The years of experience and the knowledge of the sub-contractors and the employees certainly was a very comforting feeling considering how stressful a new build can be. They were all very patient and forth coming with alternative ideas and suggestions that helped us achieve the desired results we were looking for.

We would certainly recommend Dave Sparenberg’s DHP Construction team to
build Your Dream Home!

Truly Satisfied DHP home owners


I am writing instead of calling you, David, as I thought it would be better for you to have something in writing.  I also put a review on Yelp for you.

I want to commend you, Dave, and all those who worked on my kitchen renovation.  Everyone was very professional, courteous, and most of all, accommodating and flexible, all attributes necessary to make a renovation go smoothly.  Patience was also practiced as scheduling changes were necessary due to others involved having to resolve their issues to reasonable standards, with which your employees also helped me.  My kitchen, most of which your company worked on, is awesome and I think I’ve spent more time in it since it was completed than I have in the past year.

If you are doing other work that requires a personal recommendation, please don’t hesitate to let me know.

Thank you so much.



We just wanted to say a big Thank You to all of your hardworking crew for the fabulous job they did on the bathroom. We love the outcome, it’s just as we had envisioned it. You have a wonderful group of highly skilled and talented tradesmen as well as them being very professional and pleasant to deal with.

We will highly recommend your company to people who are looking to build or renovate.

Thanks again,
Louise and John


I would like to thank the team at DHP for making our dream kitchen come to life. They are not only a great group of hardworking and friendly men, but they also made the experience of renovating nothing but exciting. I say with full confidence that you can trust the workers recommendations to improve the functionality of your space to work to its full advantage to heart. After shopping around for a contractor for our project, we received the most reasonable quote from DHP and their work was nothing but impressive. We could not be more pleased with the work completed by the DHP team who worked on our home. I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a big or small home renovation. Thanks again.

Nathan and Melanie


This was the first time I have built a house and the experience of building a house with DHP Contracting was great. They answered all of my questions (and were there a lot of questions), provided assistance when I needed it and made the whole experience fun. If you are thinking of building a house, I would recommend DHP Contracting to anyone.



We want to let you know what a pleasure it was dealing with you for the building of our house. You were very helpful and always there when we had so many questions. Things were always done in a very friendly and timely manner. The times you accommodated us on your days off were very appreciated.

Larry and Julie


Just a note to say Thanks for your commitment to completing our house on time and your attention to detail.

Ted and June


After having lived here for just over a month, Mandy and I wanted to write you a note to say “Thanks”. Now that the boxes are unpacked, everything is put away, and we are feeling a little more settled, we truly couldn’t be happier with the home you have built for us. Right from the start, we both felt that dealing with you was a lot like dealing with a family friend that it was a business transaction. We did our own research, by asking around, looking at homes you have built, and being in St. Thomas, it was clear that a great reputation is followed by your company name. From the home builder’s we spoke with, both Mandy and I felt the most comfortable dealing with you. It was an easier decision than expected to go ahead and build a new home.

Many thanks to your employees who helped us with the building process. Right from the start, Chris was great by showing us the layouts, tweaking it and making the rooms flow. Trent was able to make any suggestions, improvements on the fly that we would have never caught. Thanks to Elaine, who was able to quarterback all of our questions, keep us in the loop with timelines, decisions, etc. Mandy who felt overwhelmed by all the decisions was relieved by having Cindy help her along with the kitchen cabinets, flooring, colours and making sure that not even the smallest detail was overlooked. At the time of our close we did our pre-delivery walk through. Chris was able to point out many things to this day we would have never realized. And now that things are being followed up on, he keeps us in the loop of exactly what and when everything is happening. Even the sub-contractors you have hired, for those that we were able to have met seem to be very professional and quite courteous.

I think there is something to be said about the level of quality and service you and your employees provided for us. Again, we could not be happier with what you have built for us. Last but not least after having family and many friends already by, we have received nothing but compliments, gestures of people that are green with envy that we have had such an enjoyable building experience.

Sean and Mandy


Thanks to you and to all of your employees. James and I love our new kitchen and were impressed by Trent, Chris, James and Cindy’s efforts. A very friendly and professional group of people. Elaine as well.

Thank you for referring us to Brad and Jack for the painting and Jessie and Mike for the electrical. Amazing job.

We also love the work that GCW did for us. The cupboards are wonderful. Again, Thank You.

James and Laurie


Please pass on our sincere thank you to your staff for all the dedication and work in the completion of our new home. We are settling in and certainly enjoying our new home. Of special mention would you kindly pass on our sincere thank you to Jack for all his efforts in resolving the issues in our basement. When I shared with him Cody’s health condition, I was warmed by his concern and the manner in which he resolved the problem. He even worked on Sunday when a majority of us are taking a day to rest. I was home when the work was completed and noted at how neat and diligent Jack completed his work. DHP should be proud to have Jack as one of their employees. His demeanor and work ethic were recognized. Thanks

Kim and I would like to thank the entire DHP group for doing a great job on the design and construction of our rear porch addition. Being able to relax outside in a covered porch for 3 seasons per year has been wonderful. As you may recall, we had 3 main objectives for this project: the design needed to be done based on a photo, construction needed to be of the highest quality and the new structure needed to match our home. Check, check, check. We also appreciated having the project completed with budget and time expected.

Your advice on the design was very valuable and much appreciated. Perhaps most importantly, your construction plans were done the correct way so that we would not have any structural problems down the road. We did receive quotations from 2 other local contractors and we were easily most impressed with the plans and ideas you brought forward.

As this was a big project for us, you and your staff were attentive to our questions and concerns and promptly addressed any issues that arose. Everyone from the office staff to the excavators, formers and cement workers, framers and roofers, electricians and brick layers were all good to deal with. In particular, you and your staff had a sense of humor, despite being very busy. It was a pleasure to deal with you.

Our rear porch has expanded the living space of our home and has greatly improved the opportunities for our family to enjoy the outdoors. It is a favorite part of our home. Thanks to you and your staff for making the vision a reality. We would have no hesitation to highly recommend DHP to anyone planning an addition or entire new home.



I wanted to drop a line and let you know how pleased we are with the new windows. In fact with the whole experience with the window purchase

From our first contact with you, choosing the right type of window for our project to the scheduling delivery and installation. I only have praise to pass on.

Trent and Bob from DHP Contracting of St. Thomas who installed the windows were nothing but professional, the job site was kept incredibly clean. The workmanship of both Trent and Bob was outstanding.

Thank you for everything, it was a pleasure to do business with you.



Bob and Trent, how satisfied we are with the work performed.  We won’t hesitate to recommend DHP to any and all others.

Arch and Viv


I must comment on the professional, friendly, courteous service we received. Trent was awesome. He instilled confidence in us as customers from the estimate stage to the completion of the job.

Thanks for the great work. I will not hesitate to recommend your company to my friends and neighbors.



Dave, Elaine, Trent, Bob and the rest of the DHP Crew……

Just like to take an opportunity to thank all of you for a very positive experience in building our home. This project had been sometime in the making and really means a great deal to us (especially my wife). The final product is everything we hoped it would be. It is a home we can take a great deal of pride in. Your flexibility and understanding over the past 6 months have been greatly appreciated. With all of the potential horror stories one hears about building a new home….we can honestly say we experienced no surprises once we completed the re-zoning of our property.

We knew up front what the costs were and what our budgets enabled us to do. I would not hesitate for a second to highly recommend DHP Homes for building your “dream” home. The staff of DHP has been extremely supportive throughout the entire process!!

Thank you very much to all of you.

Sincerely Bill, Penny, Erika and Erin
