Gerstad Builders Rewarded One of the Best in 2021

We are excited to announce that Gerstad Builders has been voted as One of the Best Home Builders in 2021 for this year’s ‘Best of the Fox’ awards for McHenry County. Every year, the Northwest Daily Herald provides residents the opportunity to vote for their favorite businesses in several categories. Each category winner is named ‘Best of the Fox’ or ‘One of the Best of the Fox.’

Thank you


We want to thank every person who took the time to vote for us! From our new home construction customers to the communities we pride ourselves in being a part of. It also includes the many communities we have become a part of. We approach home building with our customers in mind. Over the last 8 years, our customers have voted regularly for us as ‘One of the Best’ or ‘The Best’ New Home Builders in McHenry County; an honor that Gerstad Builders embraces every single day.

Pride ourselves


Gerstad Builders prides themselves in building the best quality new homes for our buyers, neighbors, and friends. For over 36 years, we have had the privilege to serve the housing industry in McHenry County, IL. Additionally, our dedication to our customers has earned us a continuous approval rating of 95 percent or higher. For the last three decades, we have developed a reputation for quality, value, and integrity in each home built. Donald L Gerstad, original founder, built the company on knowledge, integrity, and dedication; the tradition is carried on by his son, Roger O. Gerstad.


We are very proud of the beautiful new homes that we build in communities throughout McHenry, Poplar Grove, Richmond, and right over the border in beautiful Williams Bay, WI.
