Learn More About Gilbert Design Build, a Florida Remodeling Company

Gilbert Design Build is a full-service design/build remodeling firm that specializes in kitchen and bath & other select remodeling projects in both Manatee and Sarasota counties.

We are passionate about remodeling homes. After all, we are homeowners too. That’s why in 2001 we created a company that offered everything we thought would be important if we engaged a remodeling company.

We had been involved in new home construction and saw that home remodeling is typically fragmented. Usually, a homeowner must engage the services of several different trades or subcontractors, spend endless hours shopping at various stores trying to decide and select all of the materials to be used, and manage the project and oversee the performance of the strangers coming in and out of their home.

We believe in a better way. Most of the folks that hire us do not have the time, or simply do not want an experience as previously described. They wish to describe what they are looking for and to have someone (who has done this hundred of times before) guide and assist them throughout the entire process in a professional manner.


Remodeling homes involves the careful coordination of designers, specialty tradesmen, craftsmen, and construction. Our leadership team meets regularly to oversee every detail to ensure every project runs smoothly. Most importantly, they make sure the homeowner’s remodeling experience is stress-free.
