Real estate agents across the GTA trust us for one simple reason—reliability. They know their reputation is at stake when recommending trades to clients. That's why they confidently choose Contempo.

With us, they get more than just contractors; they get a fully integrated team dedicated to excellence, efficiency, and professionalism.


We felt incredibly comfortable referring Contempo Building Corp. to all of our clients because being in real estate, it's really important to have contracting partners that won't skip out on a job, that'll finish it quickly, that'll communicate in a professional manner. And these guys were all that. They are not your typical contractors.
