I would like to thank you for the excellent design ideas and workmanship for my unfinished basement remodel. Townhouses have such limited space, and you have just given me a whole new room! I walked a neighbor with the same TH floor plan into my new room and she could not believe we had the same house set-up. Don’t be surprised if she (and many others) call you.

Your people were polite, cleaned up after themselves and were professional in every matter. The use of a pocket door was something I would have never thought of, and it is so perfect for the situation of dividing the utility room in half. I have attached photos of before and after. You are welcomed to post them and this letter of appreciation on your web site.

I will be highly recommending your business to my friends and fellow homeowners.

– Blessings, Pam

“I found Gilligan Contracting through Angie’s List. I was referred to Angie’s List by a former client of mine who spoke very highly of it. While my expectation was to find a good contractor that did good work, I was blown away by Gilligan Contracting. They followed up with me very soon after my inquiry, they showed up for appointments on time, and most importantly, they built an absolutely spectacular custom built fireplace and surround. From design to implementation, I couldn’t have been more impressed. As a Real Estate Broker who is constantly asked for references, I will defintely be recommending Gilligan Contracting to my clients.”

“I found Gilligan Contracting through a neighbor who had recently upgraded her entry hall. I contacted Gilligan Contracting. They were very responsive and always on time for appointments. They designed and custom built a cherry built-in surround sound entertainment center (including the wiring and electronic installation). It looks great and is kid friendly. They provided great suggestions for the design. They are easy to work with. I have been very pleased with Gilligan Contracting’s work and have recommended them to friends and neighbors.”

1.Our experience with Gilligan Contracting was absolutely fantastic!

2. We just finished a complete kitchen renovation (including the removal of a load-bearing wall and installation of a ceiling beam) and my wife and I are absolutely thrilled with how it turned out. As incredible as the end product is, working with Kevin, Byron and crew was just as incredible.

3.We had undergone some other renovations to the house and I always had to be there to make sure things were being done properly. I wanted no part of that for this extensive kitchen renovation. Thankfully, when we selected Gilligan Contracting, Kevin took over and handled everything. He asked if we were interested in design help and put us in touch with a colleague that was invaluable in helping us flesh out our initial ideas. Kevin secured all the permits, ordered or helped us order all the materials (cabinets, Silestone countertops, a sliding glass door, a window, the new appliances, lighting, etc). It seems literally everything that could be done in a kitchen renovation was done expertly by Kevin and his crew:

– wall removal

– beam installation

– complete demolition of existing kitchen

– insulation

– drywall

– plumbing, including installation of new gas line for stove

– lighting, including recessed, pendants, under cabinet and puck

– cabinet installation

– oversight of countertop installation

– window installation

– removing a window and replacing with a sliding glass door

– exterior masonry to fill in old door space

– appliance installation

– supervision of hardwood floor refinishing

– painting

– all inspections

4.Not everything goes according to plan on such a big job, of course. A subcontractor installed red oak flooring where we originally had white oak. It did not look good and Kevin immediately worked to rectify the situation and did so without any additional cost to us. We also had a delay in the arrival of our Silestone from overseas and Kevin was constantly on the phone with the local fabricator once he heard of the delay, lobbying on our behalf to get the delivery date moved up, which he did.

5.My wife says she finally has her “dream kitchen” and that’s due in no small part to Gilligan Contracting. The crew worked for 5 weeks straight, never missing a single day, and were always outside our house ready to start no later than 8am…without fail. They cleaned up every night and went above and beyond in making our house livable while we made due without access to a kitchen. I really can’t say enough about the team. Hard-working, conscientious, creative, skilled, careful…just incredibly impressive all around. And at a cost that we could afford.

6.I enthusiastically, and without any reservations, recommend Gilligan Contracting to work on your kitchen, or any other project.
