About GPH Services

Our reputation speaks for itself: since 2001, 95% of our remodeling and renovation business comes from customer recommendations. Our customers will tell you I am pickier than any of them when it comes to outstanding craftsmanship and authenticity in historic renovations and restorations.

Attention to detail is crucial and I hold my subcontractors to the same standards. I am honest and forthright. I will be truthful and upfront with you regarding your project.

I am a resident of Grosse Pointe and enjoy the architecture and character of these masterful homes. It’s an honor and joy to maintain and improve such spectacular homes and neighborhoods.

Our offices are in a building that dates from 1923 and was well known to many as a performing arts theater, a movie theater, an ice skating rink, an art gallery and most recently, as home to Thomas Hardware. We are working to restore the interior and are seeking more information about its history.

The majority of our work is in The Pointes but we also service metro Detroit, having worked on homes in Rochester, Farmington Hills, Howell, Grosse Isle, Royal Oak and Harrison Township.

Our work has been featured in the Cottage Hospital Auxiliary Grosse Pointe Kitchen Tour 3 years in a row.

We offer exceptional quality at a reasonable cost. We can design your project or work with your architect. Whether it’s an addition or renovation we can produce the most functional space for you. We are equipped to handle any type of repair or renovation, small to large, interior to exterior. Our work includes additions, bathrooms, kitchens, custom carpentry, plumbing, electrical, plaster repair, drywall, windows, patios, decks, roofing, waterproofing, tuck pointing, basements and more.

“I had my kitchen floor replaced, linoleum to wood. I had it done while I was out of town. They did a great job. The best was that my house was cleaner after the new floor went in than before I left. I expected to come home and have a lot of dust/sanding debris to clean up. There was none. The new floor is great. Thank you GPH Services.”

“Aaron and his team of highly skilled professionals delivered above and beyond our expectations … Aaron not only provided us with a variety of creative and functional options, but also insisted we look and speak with his clients to understand how his projects turn out …”

“The work by GPH services was outstanding. I was especially impressed by their attention to detail and to making sure that the work (the installation of new windows) was done right the first time. I hired the company a second time to install a door to my home plus much needed electrical work in my garage.”

He has detailed knowledge of all facets of home construction/renovation … GPH Services did major electrical, various plumbing, kitchen granite counter tops, new backsplash, a complete bathroom redo, new doors, base, door and crown moldings as well as extensive outside trim and siding replacement, major insulation upgrades and a complete fireplace renovation.”

“GPH completed 4 projects for me (1) Complete demolition and reconstruction of bathroom, (2) tear off and replacement of roof, (3) tiling and repair of foyer, (4) painting and other services for recreation room. The cost of each project was very reasonable. We were very satisfied with the work and attention from this contractor … I would highly recommend GPH.”

“Aaron and GPH Services have served as an ongoing and delightful relationship with us. Words we would use to describe the company are thorough, craftsmen, patient, flexible, trustworthy, clean, respectful, using good judgment, professional and honest. Every repair and update to our 1929 home has honored its history, our needs, and enabled modern use. We highly recommend Aaron and his excellent company.”

“Aaron Whittaker is an exceptional general contractor. Aaron has completed two major renovation projects for us. The master bath was a big job. As was standard for the time, the original 1920s bath was built on 4 inches of mortar with the galvanized pipes embedded in the mortar … I recommend Mr. Whittaker for building projects both large and small.”
