About DiCarlo Homes – Past, Present & Future



For nearly four decades DiCarlo Homes has been creating exceptional homes throughout Southern Ontario. DiCarlo Homes was founded by custom home builder Carlo DiCarlo and the family tradition continues today with his son and CEO John DiCarlo.

The mission at DiCarlo Homes has always been to offer quality homes, flexible designs and superior service. They have earned a reputation for standing behind their products and a commitment to customer care.

Our vision starts with selecting only certain pieces of property for Urban Lifestyle locations. Each tract of land is chosen based on its proximity to the amenities that matter to our customers.

Each of our homes is designed with our specific customer in mind. No detail is overlooked. Each plan is meticulously refined until all aspects of the design are perfect for the lifestyle of our customers.

DiCarlo Homes only hires personnel who are 100% focused on the customer and their needs. We are dedicated to constructing homes with no defects that conform to the highest standards of quality and workmanship. DiCarlo Homes are designed and built to retain their beauty, durability and resale value.


My wife and I would like to thank you for making our first experience purchasing a home a positive and memorable experience. From the initial contract, design selection, building process, possession through to our one year inspection we were impressed with your level of professionalism, service and prompt response to our many questions. The trade’s people were very approachable and easy to speak with and your commitment to customer satisfaction was exceptional. The most memorable moment was walking into my new home for the first time and seeing the completed product. It was one thing to see drawings and samples but the finished product exceeded our expectations. Once again we would like to truly thank DiCarlo Homes for going above and beyond in making a house our home. –David Cvetan Secondary Teacher, Dufferin-Peel Separate School Board
Your personal commitment to customer satisfaction was clearly evident throughout the entire process. You demonstrated a genuine interest in ensuring our home was of the highest quality. Your prompt responses to all of our requests, numerous visits and inquiries were most appreciated. Being at the site daily, at times getting your own hands dirty and watching Carlo work, gave us a broader respect knowing that you weren’t there to just direct as owners, you were there to work hard as a team for us and our home. You accommodated all of our requests, paying attention to detail, which resulted in a home that exceeded our expectations. You have established an excellent reputation as home builders and we would be pleased and honored to act as a reference on your behalf. Thanks for a wonderful experience. –Sam and Helen Coleiro
We were absolutely delighted with DiCarlo Homes. The employees that Dicarlo homes used are fabulous to work with–friendly, responsive and most importantly respectful of our home and time. The quality of work they do and Giancarlo DiCarlo – the Coordinator of the project, his attention to detail has been the major selling point when referring friends, he was fair, reliable and we did not have to worry about any of the small details, they were done for us. We will continue to refer others to DiCarlo Homes!! –Carrie Leo
I had a very established and reputable home inspector do a report on deficiencies to assist us on our 1 year Tarion inspection. He found the overall finish, build quality and functional condition of this home to be far above the standards for a home of this vintage and construction type and the deficiency list was far less typical compared to the same. Our experience with Dicarlo homes has been exceptional compared to accounts I have heard from people I know that have bought from other reputable local builders. Dicarlo was very accommodating to our input throughout the building process. I believe the quality of the trades people that Dicarlo used were much superior to the typical new home construction in this very active new home market. I would have absolutely no hesitation to Dicarlo Homes to anyone wanting a quality, well built custom home. –Randy Winterle Sales Manager, Taylor Chrysler Dodge Jeep
This was our first time building a house and I have to say the entire experience, from the beginning with the design of the house, to the present, with John DiCarlo has been pleasant. John is extremely knowledgeable and provided many suggestions on upgrades, ergonomic and other changes throughout this process. He was at the house everyday discussing special requests with the subcontractors and inspecting their work. We were in constant communication throughout the build. The home is now completed and I am very happy with the service John provided and the quality of the home. Overall, it was an enjoyable experience. We came within budget after incorporating more upgrades than expected. More importantly I saved a significant amount of time and avoided the stress that could go with a new home construction. I would recommend John DiCarlo and DiCarlo Homes to anyone considering using a contractor or buying a new home. –Giacomo Angelini
My experience with DiCarlo Custom Homes has been a great one! We have actually purchased two homes from DiCarlo and each time our expectations were more than met. The quality and craftsmanship was excellent. Both John and Carlo were very helpful and didn’t mind getting dirty when needed. Many times you don’t get the experience of working with the owners or even meeting with them, not with DiCarlo they are with you every step of the way and it gives me comfort to buy a home from DiCarlo Custom Homes. –Jen Shirley
I’ve been in my new Dicarlo Custom home now for almost a year, and every time I open the front door, I’m still in awe. The quality of materials and attention to detail that went into my new home is extremely impressive, and far exceeded my expectations, compared to the other homes I looked at prior to buying from you. The whole process from start to finish was the best experience I’ve ever had and would recommend this builder highly. I was extremely impressed with his organization, and his level of customer service, it honestly far exceeded any expectations I had. Jon your commitment to building new homes and the services you provide has set the bar extremely high for other builders. If I ever move, I will be calling you for my next new home, thanks a million you made my experience the best one I ever had! –Milos Radoja
