Don’t just take our word for it, read what our customers have to say about their experience with ERCO Homes.

My decision to purchase an Energy Efficient Home from ERCO Development was an excellent choice. Sheldon and his team of professionals were attentive to all my concerns and followed through with all my requests. They even installed my appliances and my home was finished before the closing date. All I had to do was move in and it was worry-free!


Now that the dust has settled and we are able to sit back and relax, I just wanted to send you a note thanking yourself, Brian and Clarence for everything. We decided on ERCO because‎ of our past experience and you were equally efficient this time. You delivered everything we asked for‎ on time and under our budget. In fact, we moved in 2 weeks earlier than scheduled and both you and Brian offered suggestions and improvements we would have missed, and Clarence was always there to help with anything we wanted. There may be builders who may do as good a job as you do but it is impossible for anyone to be better.

The ease of our move to St. John’s from outside the province was made possible with the assistance of ERCO Homes. They were very accommodating to our needs in purchasing our home and assisted in selecting the items to make our home complete. The ECRO Home employees were very courteous and professional throughout our home construction and purchasing process! Thank you ERCO Homes.

The Wallis Family

We feel very fortunate that ERCO Homes built our house, the whole experience was great. The quality of work was top notch. Sheldon and Brian were very professional and easy to work with, without their help and expertise in building we wouldn’t have been able to turn the house plans into our dream home. If we were going to build another house, we’d call ERCO Homes, and we will recommend ERCO Homes to our family and friends.


We would like to take this time to thank you Sheldon, and the entire ERCO team, for our new home.

Even though this was not our first building experience, it was certainly one of the most positive. The fact that our new home was built while we lived in another town did not affect the communication, it still remained exceptional. We always felt part of the building process and there was always someone available to answer any questions or concerns we had. We really felt that they were there to help us every step of the way, we even took possession early which was a very nice surprise.

ERCO personnel were always professional and we never felt any question was too small. Their suggestions and attention to detail were great and in the end that’s what really makes our house our home.

We would certainly recommend ERCO to family and friends. Their experience in the industry shows with the homes they build and in the overall customer service they provide.

I share that I have been contacted by Atlantic Home Warranty Program and have provided ERCO Homes with an “Excellent” rating. I am very pleased with the house, the workmanship, the professionalism of the team (both office and site) as well as the follow-up services provided by ERCO. And I am happy to recommend your company to others. Again, a very sincere “thank you” to ALL.

We purchase our custom built home from ERCO Homes in Clovelly Trails Subdivision. Our experience was extremely positive. Sheldon and Brian were easy to do business with, were very professional and gave top priority to customer satisfaction and service. We would recommend Erco Homes to anyone planning to build a new home. If we have the opportunity to build again we would not hesitate to use Erco Homes.

I have had a few houses built by ERCO Construction and I must say that if I ever build again, ERCO would have to be the contractor. Every aspect of the building experience from start to finish has been professional, and every detail in the house has been well done. It seems to me that their workers are a cut above the best. What we liked most of all was the fact that their management people ie. Sheldon Colbourne, is on the job a lot, making sure the project is going well and on time. They certainly live up to their reputation as a top notch contracting firm to deal with. We’ve had a great experience.

Norm & Belle Doyle

The folks at ERCO did a stellar job in addressing issues as they arose. No new home building project proceeds without some form of interruption, especially in today’s busy construction industry. What sets builders apart is their ability to keep customers happy and informed, even in the presence of these delays. For this, I applaud the ERCO staff.” “…we will surely be in consultation with ERCO Developments should we decide to build again.

T. Reid

As Director of Special Projects – CHHA-NL I must develop mutually productive relationships between ourselves and private industry and I feel so fortunate to have been introduced to ERCO Homes. Quite literally from the very first meeting you have always illustrated to me that you are a community minded individual and as such you ensure that ERCO Homes is as well. Together we have built nine of “The Ultimate Dream Homes” that have anchored one of the most successful fundraising campaigns in the province in recent memory.” “Your professionalism and progressive attitude are the reasons that you have consistently delivered beautiful homes, well built and on time, every time. The entire ERCO Homes team has been a pleasure to work with.

During the past year Mr. Elmo Russell constructed my new family home and I had the opportunity to work closely and convey my ideas to him over that period of time. I must sincerely say that he was forthright, extremely patient and has a manner about him whereby his ability to communicate effectively put the client at ease.

C. Beson-Nolan

The quality of the workmanship is excellent. We have received many compliments on our house. The after sale service as well was excellent. The couple of minor things that needed to be done were handled promptly and to our satisfaction. The whole experience of building our new house with ERCO Development was most satisfactory. Everything was handled in a most professional manner.

D&C Boland

If I had to buy another home at any time in the future, I would not hesitate in the least to deal with ERCO Development. My experience has been a positive one from the very beginning. I would highly recommend this company to anyone who was in the market for a home. 


We purchased our family home in September from ERCO Homes. We had spent over six months looking for a place that our family felt would suit our needs and that was well built. As soon as we walked in to 12 Antelope Street we were struck by the quality of the workmanship and finishing’s of the house. Small details like the pantry in the kitchen and double closets in the bedrooms had us sold! As with any new home, there are some odds and ends to be complete once we were settled and we were delighted by the superior service that we received by Kelly. She was always available for any issue that arose and ensured that contractors were on site on time. We have lived in our home for over two years now and have NO outstanding issues. We plan to purchase a two apartment investment property in the next year and will call ERCO first! The quality of construction combined with the outstanding customer service we received give us peace of mind to make our next home purchase an easy one. Thanks ERCO!

Good Morning, I just wanted to say how pleased I was to work with Brian on this project. I found he was always available for any questions or concerns I had with the house. He was great to work with. I’m sure Erco is proud to have such an employee on staff! Thanks again Sheldon for everything. 


Hi Sheldon, I just wanted to take the time to thank you and the guys that built our house. I could not ask for a better job done. Thank you to Brian, yourself & Kelly for everything. 

Jeff and Angela

Hi Elmo, I wanted to drop you a note to express our gratitude and thanks to your team during the construction of our new home on 96 Blue Puttee. Your team lead by Sheldon and Brian were always accessible, highly knowledgeable, provided value added advice and true professionals both before and after the sale. The focus on the customer was certainly evident and having built a number of homes I would definitely recommend a home built by ERCO. You are lucky to have them on your team! Continued success to you and I look forward to doing business with you in the months and years to come.
