  • “White Contracting has done a number of major projects for our family over our 60 years in Cognashene. From additions to the existing cottage, decks and interior renovation their work has been excellent. They have all the equipment to complete the jobs. A major benefit is Gerry and Trevor’s experience to make the new blend in with the old and minimize the visual impact that new buildings bring. They also seem to have a good working relationship with the local regulatory process probably because their work is always at or above code” - John and Laura Hughes and family Cognashene
  • “My wife and I have utilized the services of White Contracting on many occasions over the past 27 years and most recently for the construction of an addition to our original cottage, along with a new dock, a deck rebuild and a new accessory storage building. We have been extremely satisfied with our “White” experience. They lived up to all of our expectations and in our view, made the construction process go as smoothly as it possibly could. Their team was excellent and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend White Contracting to anyone looking to build in the Southern Georgian Bay area” - Trevor and Raechel Robertson Honey Harbour
  • “I do not hesitate to recommend White Contracting for work on your property. Over the past three years White’s provided our family with expert services to repair and improve various major structural issues with our cottage and boathouses. White’s was reliable, professional and charged a reasonable price for the work they performed” - Barbara Zimmerman Go Home Bay
  • “John and the staff of White Contracting were extremely professional and diligent. A dock/deck project was completed on time and the quality of the workmanship was top notch. We are extremely pleased with the result and the people at White’s should be congratulated for their honesty, communication skills and most importantly, friendship. Would recommend this company to anyone wishing to proceed with a project that requires dedication and professionalism.” - Lou Popovich Moore Point

Work sites are always clean and organized during construction with as little disruption as possible.” - Ken Key Lily Pond Road, Honey Harbour
  • “We would like to thank John White and the entire team for the excellent work completed to date with our new cottage build. From the beginning, the team has proven to be very knowledgeable, professional and friendly guiding us through the build process; including detailed plans and recommendations, estimates and Georgian Bay Township requirements (minor variance application and building permits). We have complete confidence in the entire White Contracting & Barging team and we are looking forward to building a long term relationship with them for our upcoming cottage build and other future projects.” - Tracy Billows & Mark Gabereau Picnic Island, Honey Harbour
  • “Gerry, Trevor and all their crew were a pleasure to work with in constructing our new cottage. Their many years of experience were a great asset in building a cottage able to withstand the harsh conditions that we experience on Georgian Bay. The workmanship was of very high quality. We would certainly recommend the White’s if you are considering a project on Georgian Bay” - Chuck and Mary Roth Georgian Bay
  • “In June of 2009, White Contracting and Barging arrived at our island property on Six Mile Lake. The scheduled work was to build a septic system, dig footings for the cottage and build a road from the lake up to the building site. We would like to personally thank you for the amazing job Gerry and John did in organizing the job and also thank your crew for all of their hard work on site. The work on site was well organized by your crew who were extremely professional and completed all the work on schedule and without making the cottage site a mess. Everything was left very neat and clean and all the jobs were done exactly as we asked. Thank you again for a job well done! We look forward to working with you on future jobs at our property and all the barging that we will definitely need in the future” -Bob and Lee Leliever Six Mile Lake
  • “I would appreciate it if you could pass on my many thanks and praises to your entire team. I was a little nervous at the beginning of the undertaking as I had never done anything like this before. You and your team lead me through the process and put any concerns to rest immediately. I am extremely impressed with the quality of the workmanship and the professionalism that was displayed by the crews. Thank you all very much” -Will Attwood Six Mile Lake
  • “Tom and I have been extremely pleased with all the work we have had completed on the property over the 8 years we have been cottagers in the area including new docks, additional bedrooms and a new Bunkie. White Contracting employees have been detailed oriented and the finishing work has been well done and of high quality, specific to our requests. We have generally not been present for much of the work but the construction areas have been left tidy and care was taken to be neat. The company is well versed functioning within the Township of Georgian Bay guidelines and their contacts have made progress very smooth. White’s have made every attempt to keep us in the loop and appraised of situations as they arise and have made it very easy for us to do these projects from the city without concern. Working with the White Family has been a great experience; you are all very friendly and experienced and your concern for the client to be pleased really shows” -Marilyn and Tom Weber Georgian Bay
  • “We would like to express our sincere thanks to Gerry, Trevor and everyone who played a part in creating our new home. Your staff always gave us the feeling that quality was their goal and that our best interests were their priority. This same attitude was employed by your various specialty trades. We appreciate the wealth of experience and the personal attention to detail that you brought to our special project. For us, it is truly a dream come true.” -Cindy and Jim Thomson Gloucester Pool
  • “Gerry White built my cottage in 1985 from a sketch I sent him on squared paper. He helped me choose the site, made sound practical suggestions and some wonderful aesthetic ones in developing the final design. In the years since, I've returned to White Contracting for all the additions, enhancements and maintenance that cottage life demands. I know the work will be first class, the explanations comprehensible and the working relationship pleasant.” -Jane Carnwath Georgian Bay
  • “It is a great pleasure to endorse the work and service provided by White Contracting & Barging. The Saunderson Family has enjoyed an excellent relationship with the White organization for over fifty years. Two cottages have been built, two cottages have been remodeled and extended, one large floating dock and one large floating boat shelter have been provided as well as a swimming platform with ladder, and three cottage site septic systems have been installed. These buildings and systems have been properly maintained and serviced at all times. Always we have experienced a close personal relationship with the White Organization which has been most enjoyable. Our needs and requirements have been responded to quickly and completely. Estimates have been accurate and true. Completion times have been exact and all the work has been done accurately in a most professional and attractive way. Accordingly we are very confident and happy to recommend White Contracting & Barging to the Georgian Bay cottage community.” -Bill and Meredith Saunderson Island 61 on Georgian Bay
