Very professional Gil provided a high quality job from start to finish. I look forward to working with Gil on future profects!May 7, 2017Verified
I needed a spare/storage room finished. The room needed Sheetrock, plywood flooring, taping and sanding. Gil did all of that and then painted, added baseboard trim as well as trimmed out the door and window. Separately he removed 2 in wall a/c units and closed up the openings including new shingles and exterior paint. Gil did an excellent job! He's meticulous and reasonably priced and just a nice person. I'm looking forward to having him back for other projects in the future. Worth every penny!!!Nov 2, 2016Verified
We had an ugly front door that we needed re- done. We hired Gil, he was very polite, and honest. He made sure everything gone done right. Gil was very professional, and very good at what he does. He finished our door today, and even added an outdoor light that did not work before. It looks great!!! We are looking foward to Gil installing french doors in our master bedroom soon. If you want your job done right, then Gil is your guy! :) Thanks for everything The Navarro Family:)Nov 19, 2016Verified
My wife and I have a one year old son and we had bad problems with cold air coming in through the basement bulkhead. I contacted Gil and within 24 hrs he showed up on time and quoted us a very reasonable price to frame and install a door underneath the bulkhead to block the cold air out. He showed up for the job on time and did an extremely thorough job. He is an unbelievable communicator and was transparent throughout the whole phase from time of quote to job completion. He is very patient and took the time to explain things and makes very insightful recommendations regarding other odds and jobs we were interested in getting done on the house. There has not been one time where I reached out to Gil that he didn’t get back to me within 5 minutes, and most of the time picks up the phone on the spot. As you know, having someone who responds right away is critical, and the sad truth is those people are hard to find these days, and I really respect Gil for that. I would even go as far as saying that no contractor I’ve come across in my life even comes close to how responsive Gil is, and that really put me at ease. I have never met a more professional, understanding general contractor than Gil and there is no doubt that I will never even think about calling another general contractor for as long as Gil is around. People like this just simply don’t come around very often and by not calling Gil you are literally doing yourself a disservice. He told me that he really appreciates his clients reaching out to him and values them. And while that is easy to say and most contractors will say that, Gil proves it with his outstanding work. This is someone who is not in it for the money, just a man who is extremely skilled at his craft and passionate about what he does, and cares deeply about his clients. Over the last year my wife and I have been getting quotes from several people to get our basement finished. Half the people we reached out to didn’t show up for the quote when they said they would, the other half showed up and quoted an astronomical price or showed up to scope out the job and we never heard from them again. Gil gave us a great price and I’m 100% confident that he will do a fantastic job. Gil also gave us a quote to install a garbage disposal. Then, we found a family member who offered to do it for us free of charge. I called Gil on fairly short notice to cancel the job and he was not upset about it, said he understood, and handled it very professionally. I have had an excellent experience working with him and will be referring him to friends and family members for years to come!Jan 26, 2020Verified
this is not the first time i hired Gilbert to do some work in my house and it won't be the last. he always shows up on time and is always professional and courteous. He took time to walk through my list of issues with me and my husband. he even put some suggestions . he was honest about how long the job would take which was like a day and a half . and in fact he finished on time leaving no mess and a beautifull job. he gave me advice on future work that we plan to have done.Jan 14, 2015
