Our Approach

Berner Contracting is a design/build custom home building operation that has specialized in constructing custom homes and cottages throughout Grey and Bruce communities since 1985. We have had the privilege of working with families to construct over 300 custom homes and cottages and have maintained an excellent Tarion warranty rating throughout. In addition to custom home building, Berner Contracting does extensive renovations to residences and light commercial work.

Berner Contracting is a reputable and long standing member of the Ontario and Canadian Home Builders Associations.

Berner Contracting is a proud family business owned and operated by myself, Mark Berner and my wife, Shelley Berner. Our son, Jason, and my brothers, Brad and Paul also work for Berner Contracting to uphold high standards of excellence. Beyond our family members, we are proud to say that many of our tradesmen who start with us as carpenter helpers continue to pursue the trade with the Ontario Apprenticeship Training Program and become certified general carpenters.

The complement of the family run business and its connections through a love for home building creates a highly efficient and effective organization that ensures projects have the close supervision of a Berner Contracting crew who deliver the utmost quality, craftsmanship, and workmanship. Berner Contracting is unique in that it employs our own certified tradesmen to frame, trim, insulate, and install exterior finishes such as siding, decking, soffit, and fascia while we have an excellent working relationship with all of our certified sub trades.

Berner Contracting can design your dream home to reflect what is important to you and your family. Your individual needs are our priority. Alternatively, we can build your family’s home by using your plans and incorporate specifications into the design and aid in the planning of your project. A complete quotation will be presented to you for your consideration at no charge.

We thank you for taking the time to research our company and hope that as you pursue your dreams of a new family home, cottage or renovation that you will invite our family to work with yours.

Mark Berner
for Berner Contracting

“It starts with an idea, a vision of a house, a home and then the search begins for the right builder, the builder with whom you can have the creative relationship necessary to carry out that idea, that vision, the builder who will create your dream and turn your ideas into reality. I found that relationship with Mark Berner of Berner Contracting. From start to finish it was the creative relationship we had that resulted in our home. He is a collaborator with a skilled team of craftsmen who go above and beyond to build it right. Mark has been “our builder” for 18 years. He created our home, our cottage and our spectacular winery, Coffin Ridge. Mark makes it all happen and in our experience always on budget and always on time.”
