We had a very good experience purchasing a building and carport from Gemco. Jeremiah was closing up shop when we arrived but took the time to walk us around and helped us choose the building that was right for us. Very courteous and professional.
We just had our shed and car awning installed. The installation was fast and professional and the quality was excellent. Once again I would refer Gemco to anyone. After the installation I compared ours with the neighbors around us and ours was on a par with the best.

I was so very happy with the way Jeremiah Beeson handled our order with our church fellowship hall. He really cared about how we wanted our building done, and it was taken care of in such a timely manner. Juan and his brother were a true blessing, always on time with a smile, and a kind word. I will always remember Jeremiah and Juan and how blessed Gemco are to have such great men working for them. You gentlemen give this company a great name. God Bless!

Very professional from sales people to ground crew. Jeremiah was exceedingly helpful in the sales office. David and his helper not only solved the logistic problem of getting material to the job site, but worked past dark to get it done. Highly pleased with look and quality of finished product, like it just grew there.
