Northern Granite Works Testimonials

Although Northern Granite Works was the only company we actually visited, we did our homework and read their reviews, so we did not have to run around to 3 or 4 different stores. This is not our first kitchen renovation, and I have had bad-quality craftsmanship before and knew we did not want it again. You don’t replace your kitchen every year.
Their price reflected their wonderful craftsmanship (trust me, I have had seams filled before that I could have done a better job at). Northern Granite Works offers top-notch quality, very personal, friendly service. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

I just wanted to take a moment and thank you for your guidance while I was choosing my new countertop. I am not just appreciative of your time with this, but I am also very grateful for the amazing customer service. You have quite a team working with you, and I wanted to pass along how talented and professional everyone was. Shane and Clint take such pride in their work and it shows.

Sincerely, your very satisfied customer,


The NGW team is an exceptional group of knowledgable and highly skilled individuals who work together in perfect synchronicity. From our first visit to the office where Trish and Greg answered all our questions … and we had a LOT … that led us to an informed decision about product to Tyanna’s accurate measure during which she picked up on the need for a build-up, the fabricator’s precision preparation of our Quartz, and finally to Shane and Clint’s efficient and careful installation, every member of the team was not only knowledgable and well experienced but also personable, professional, and very respectful of how important this project was to us. What a pleasure to work with a local team on top of their game.

We just wanted to say how pleased we are with our new countertops and to thank everyone at Northern Granite for all the help and advice during the process. Thank you also Greg for recommending Greg Strongman who was able to reconfigure our island and did an incredible job in record time.

The quartz is absolutely beautiful and you and your team were a pleasure to work with. Thanks again for a great experience and a wonderful job.

Pete and I wanted to thank you for our beautiful granite counter tops, and are really glad you recommend the 3′ border. The workmanship is outstanding. The counters are truly a timeless piece of art. We love them. Your team helped us with every question we had, and they were very professional. We have already recommended you to many people.

Pete and Marilyn Johnston

Good Morning Greg, just a quick note to say thanks and a great job by your crew. Your entire team was great! Right from the first communications with you in regards to our project through the template process and finally the installation process. The crew that came out were very efficient and informative. I was really impressed with the openness that they shared in information and readily answered any questions. My wife was there for the entire time and she was really happy with the way the guys worked. She said that she asked a lot of questions and the installers were open to sharing the information. When the work was completed, they left the work site clean and tidy. The only way you could tell that they were at our house was with the beautiful counter top left behind. Thanks again!

We have moved back into our cottage for this weekend even though it is not quite finished. I saw my kitchen and bathroom counters for the first time yesterday, they had been covered up with cardboard for protection. I love them and I can’t thank you enough for the fabulous work you did. The Island is magnificent! Thank you so much for sourcing the slab and for finishing it so perfectly! Two of my children arrived yesterday, more expected today, and they can’t keep talking about the kitchen and bathrooms, they have been truly transformed and the granite is what brings it all together! It was a pleasure working with you both, I only wish I had more projects so I could continue to work with you! Thank you again, all the very best.


home design My wife and I attended numerous Natural Stone businesses for the purpose of becoming informed about granite and marble and the installation of the said stone with respect to a kitchen countertop and peninsula and three bathroom vanity countertops. In doing so, we attended Northern Granite Works (NGW) in Barrie, ON and met with Ms. Trish Lavigne in the first instance and subsequently, the owner – Mr. Greg Sneddon. We prepared preliminary drawings and presented the draft to Mr. Sneddon. In addition, we asked countless questions regarding the properties of granite and marble and their suitability for our intended use. Mr. Sneddon was patient, an intent listener and welcomed our inquiries. He responded to each question in a thorough and concise manner. We were taken by the genuine passion he displayed interacting with us. We left the NGW office well-informed, which included documentation and contact information relating to numerous granite and marble suppliers, a ball park estimate and a timeline for installation. During the stone selection process, we regularly liaised with Mr. Sneddon, both personally and by email transmissions. Mr. Sneddon was receptive and provided timely feedback considering our goals and workable solutions. Ms. Tyanna Dorion of NGW attended our residence and completed laser measurements for the upcoming installation. She was diligent and entertained our questions. In addition, she posed numerous questions to us with a goal to ensure the installation was in accordance with our vision. The installation was a testament to her fastidious work. As scheduled, the installation was completed by Mr. Shane Lee and Mr. Doug MacNeil of NGW. Mr. Lee and Mr. MacNeil were very personable and carried out their duties in a workmanlike manner. They were respectful of our home and demonstrated a commitment to detail. In summary, we enjoyed all aspects of our granite and marble project. The final results met all our expectations. The passion and commitment to customer service displayed by Mr. Sneddon didn’t end with him. All employees, including those associated with the fabrication process demonstrated a caring attitude with our objectives being front and center. We strongly recommend NGW. Our best move was walking through the front door of Northern Granite Works.

Northern Granite Works was a pleasure to deal with at every stage of our project. They were so helpful with everything including pricing options, samples, design suggestions, finish and detail options, laser templating, layout and installation. I was very happy with their service as they answered all of my many, many questions, addressed any concerns, delivered on time, offered competitive prices, were very professional, handled a very difficult installation and the end product is amazing! I would highly recommend Northern Granite Works.


Northern Granite Works completed the counter tops in our new Muskoka home. From our very first dealings with them, we were impressed. Trish in the office and Greg, couldn’t have been more helpful from start (selecting our slabs) to finish (our beautiful granite counter tops in kitchen, powder room and en-suite). In addition, they completed Ceasarstone quartz counter tops in two guest bathrooms. Greg suggested mitred edges (many other companies stack their edges) and the end result is flawless. We are so thrilled with our counter-tops and their expert installation that we are currently working with them on a bar project on the lower level of our new home. And the icing on the cake? Not only do they provide wonderful service, they are exceptionally nice people as well.

Their knowledge, professionalism and commitment to customer satisfaction are unmatched. They were a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend their service. 

J. Mackenzie, Home Owner                     

Being in the Realty business for 25 years, it was important for us, when we re-modeled our own home, to deal with a company which we regarded as being a “safe pair of hands”. We were delighted with the service and quality of the product which we received from Northern Granite Works. We would be happy to recommend them to anyone looking to put granite counters into their own home or business.

Michael Hassey, Owner, Hassey Realty, Barrie

We have worked very closely with Greg and the team at Northern Granite Works for 8 years now. As a custom home builder it is very important for my business, that the suppliers that we deal with provide us with the highest level of product and service.. Northern Granite Works does both. And because they work so closely with our customers, it is even more important that they exceed our expectations. And they do. On every level.

Steve Witty, Owner, SL Witty Homes, Barrie
