Our Team

At Millgate Homes, our team consists of certified and licensed professionals with decades of on-site experience.

We prioritize high-quality workmanship and a seamless workflow. Our craftsmen are respectful of your home and work as quietly as possible in the basement and the majority of material and foot-traffic go through a basement window or door to minimize upstairs interruptions.

Don't settle for novice subcontractors, inexperienced hourly workers or handymen - trust our team of experts for your basement finishing needs.

Our Process

At Millgate Homes, we believe in transparency and providing highly-detailed bids for each project. Our bids are one-of-a-kind, include a visual layout of your basement, and we list all custom-choice item allowances and available options, with no hidden fees or gimmicks.

We handle all necessary building permits and can typically start your basement finish within 2-3 weeks of signing an agreement. Our average basement project takes 9-11 weeks to complete, and we take pride in sticking to our schedule.

We also offer a fair payment process, with the first payment not due until work on your basement has started. Trust us for a stress-free and professional basement finishing experience

Our Portfolio


  • Millgate Homes did a fantastic job on our basement. On budget, on time, and very easy to work with. They executed a custom built-in entertainment center to our exact specs and it looks beautiful. Another huge plus - Eric’s craftsmen were all seasoned and professional. Would recommend to anyone!!

  • I've worked on many projects with Millgate Homes as the project designer. Its nice to have an experienced builder involved giving input on design aspects that fit the clients budget and needs.

  • We loved every little thing of working with Millgate homes. Eric was so great to work with and really knows his stuff. All of his sub contractors were great and very respectful of our house while working on our basement. Everything turned out exactly like we wanted. We will forever refer them to friends and family.

  • Millgate Homes helped us complete our basement. The bid was detailed, accurate and included firm commitments in terms of completion that were lived up to. [The items] in the bid were not "builder grade" [but] were uniformly high quality. Each and every one of the sub-contractors were classy, respectful and were real gentlemen. Eric, himself, is a real pleasure to work with. A true professional who also treats his clients like friends.

  • These guys were awesome for my basement remodel. They were straight shooters on costs and time-frame. So happy I didn't go with the cheapest bid because the quality would have suffered or I would have had cost overruns. I would highly recommend Millgate Homes.
