Meet the Builder

Andy Becker, the President of Stonegate Custom Homes, has always been driven by his passion for construction and home building. His journey began at an early age, inspired by the involvement of his family in the industry. One of Andy’s fondest memories is helping build a deck alongside his grandpa and uncle for his grandparents’ cabin at Lake Delhi – a project that ignited his love for construction, a passion that has evolved over nearly 25 years.

Having earned a BS in Construction Management and a minor in Real Estate from the University of Northern Iowa, Andy gained invaluable experience while working with a commercial construction and land development company. After graduation, he managed the construction process for multiple multi-unit apartment complexes and townhouses.

In 2012, Andy transitioned to residential construction and joined one of Iowa’s largest home-building companies as an estimator. Over eight years, he held various roles, including estimating, project superintendent, and land development, becoming well-versed in all aspects of home building operations.

"Where Quality and Integrity are Honored"

Andy Becker

President at Stonegate Custom Homes

Without a doubt, Andy Becker of Stonegate Custom Homes is the finest general contractor I've had the privilege of working with. Throughout the entire building process, Andy displayed unparalleled transparency and diligence. His patience and kindness, especially when working with my mother, who suffered a stroke in 2019, was deeply appreciated. What sets Andy apart is his meticulous oversight of every crew, ensuring top-notch quality and addressing any minor details that needed attention. It's evident that he holds his work and company reputation in the highest regard. I wholeheartedly endorse Andy and will always seek his expertise for any home projects while I'm in Iowa.

"We knew very little about the home building process and were honestly questioning whether or not it was something we wanted to take on. It took one meeting with Andy to realize Stonegate Custom Homes was going to be a perfect fit for us. I would compare working with Andy to working with a close friend or family member. He was always willing to take the time to answer our questions and address any of our concerns. We thoroughly trusted him, he knows his stuff, and he loves what he does. It was obvious he genuinely cared about building our future home. You really can't ask for more than that! We can't recommend him enough!"

"We began working with Andy and Stonegate Custom Homes in 2020. From the beginning, Andy did an excellent job with our project. From plan design and customization, to explaining the options around construction financing. Once we broke ground, we were provided with a detailed schedule on when things would happen and what vendors to meet with for selections. At every step, Andy was there to answer any questions we had. We are extremely satisfied with the quality of the workmanship in our home and the attention to detail given. We felt like there was high integrity and transparency at every step in the process. All of the subcontractors and suppliers that we came in contact with were excellent to work with and were able to guide us in making decisions with confidence. If we were to build all over again, we would not hesitate to choose Andy and Stonegate Custom Homes."
