Northgate Homes of New York, Inc


We first met John and Linda of Northgate Homes of New York, Inc. in late fall 2015, as we started planning the purchase of land and the construction of a new home in the Sacandaga Lake area.  From our first visit, we had confidence in the experience and professionalism that they conveyed. John was willing to help us assess home placement relative to land selection and purchase, as well as the significant infrastructure items, such as well and septic systems.  His attention to detail enabled us to construct our Durabuilt Custom Modular Home on schedule, and on budget. The advice of the Northgate Team, and the sub-contractors allowed us the enjoyment of watching our home become a reality, in a beautiful setting without the stress of delays in construction. We had the chance to interact on-site with John and his crew, Jamie and Charlie, true craftsmen, as they created the custom additions, including a sun-room for our year-round enjoyment. We can never thank the Northgate Homes Team enough for enabling our dream to come true.

We decided to go with Northgate Homes after meeting with three other modular companies in the area.  It was the best decision we could have made.  John and Linda are true professionals  Their knowledge about the process alleviated any worry and stress we had when it came to designing and building our home.  They understood what “works” and what doesn’t throughout the design process .  You can tell that they honestly care about the home and individuals they are working for.  It helped us to get everything exactly the way we wanted it.    We were building our modular behind our residence at the time.  John was the only contractor we met with who took the time to drive out to our property and check the layout of our land before starting.  This allowed us to live in our old home while they would be working on our new home behind it.  All the other contractors used Google Earth to inform themselves and told us that we’d have to evacuate and demolish our old house before we could build.     John and his staff were very accommodating as they were building around us residing on the property at the same time.  They worked around our vehicles in the driveway and even our 2 year old running around wanting to help “the guys” -basically us living our daily lives in their construction site.   Northgate also teams up with some amazing companies to get other aspects of the building process done.  From the digging, to the cement, to the dry wall, everyone is professional and great at what they do.    Overall we could not have hoped to work with a better company to build our forever home.

After less than 3 months from ordering to moving in, we are now the happy owners of a Northgate Modular HOME!   We had always heard that Northgate built houses.   But after our experience with them, we found out that is not completely true – they don’t just build houses, they build HOMES.  And we couldn’t be happier with our new Northgate home! After much research, we decide to purchase a Modular “ranch”.  We spoke to John of Northgate and before sitting us down and “selling” us on one of his houses, he immediately set up for us to go and see a ranch that he was currently working on in a neighboring county. After taking us through it and telling us about all the options available, he then met us at his office and discussed and listened carefully to what we were interested in building.   From that meeting on we felt extremely comfortable, got answers to all our questions and John was always forthcoming to let us know what worked and what didn’t when designing a home.  From his many, many years of experience, he certainly knows what to recommend – but is always willing to listen to his customer and will do anything he is asked to do. Meeting with Linda in the office was also a pleasure.  Picking out cabinets, vanities, lighting fixtures, tiles, color of siding and shingles etc can be daunting – but not at Northgate.  The experience couldn’t have gone smoother.  Recommendations were made and we could take samples home. Everything we asked for was made available if at all possible. John and his team – Charlie and Jamie – were perfectionists.  Whether it was sheet rocking or tiling or putting on shingles…each task was done with pride, as if they were doing it for their own home.  They were always on time, friendly and they were knowledgeable of every job they performed.From the day the two halves of a house were delivered, to setting the house on its foundation, to building our screened in front porch and one car attached garage, to actually moving our furniture in – the experience of working with and watching our “home” be put together by John, Charlie and Jamie was extraordinary!   We are now cozily living in our Modular Home by Northgate, waking every morning pleased with our decision to go with John and his crew.
THANK YOU, Northgate! Ron and Ronni Royal- In the prettiest yellow house in Wells, NY

We would highly recommend Northgate Homes  to anyone looking to build their dream home. With John and Linda’s knowledge and experience it made,  what could be a very stressful time, very straightforward.  Any problems or concerns we had, they were always right there to answer all the questions. Modular building was done very quickly and quality of workmanship was exceptional. From designing our floor plan to all the paperwork involved, they did it all. Now we  have a brand new house with every thing on our “wish” list at the price we expected. Looking forward to retirement, sitting in our wicker chairs, on the screened porch!
Thanks for everything,
Randolph and Carol Richter

Choosing to build a home was a huge decision for us.  My husband had been through the process before with a different company and was somewhat reluctant to do it again.  Building with Northgate Homes was a great decision!  They took a lot of stress out of building a new home.  The professionalism that both John and Linda exhibit was far above our expectations. They were an absolute pleasure to work with.  From our very first meeting, until the house was complete, they guided us in every step of the process and went above and beyond to accommodate our needs and wants. Due to the pride they take and their caring nature, we are extremely happy with the outcome! Our home is everything we wanted and more! We recommend Northgate Homes to anyone who is looking for a quality built house, constructed by a man who truly treats the job as if it were his own.

If you are interested in building a home, you should definitely consider building with Northgate Homes of NY.  We couldn’t be happier with our modular home! Our dream became a reality when we chose to build a chalet style home in Broadalbin, NY.  John and Linda worked countless hours in order for us to get exactly what we wanted.  And the custom work (interior stone work, exterior stone work and knotty pine ceiling) that John and his crew did is absolutely breathtaking.  You won’t regret working with Northgate Homes of NY!
