Client Testimonials 

We love the look on our client's faces when the project comes to a close, and they can begin living in their new space. As the years go on, our clients become more like family than anything else. We've gotten the chance to interview a few of previous homeowners who share their thoughts on the remodeling process, and what it was like to work with the team at Gilbert Design Build. 

Kitchen Remodel
JoAnn Dilallo from Bradenton, Florida



JoAnn Dilallo of Bradenton, Florida was looking to remodel her kitchen and met Gilbert Design Build at a local home show. What impressed JoAnn most were the benefits of working with a design build company that offers a one-stop solution for everything from design, project management, and construction.

JoAnn had a tight deadline to have her kitchen remodeled before entertaining guests and Gilbert Design Build was able to complete it on time.

Kitchen Remodel
Laura Heidler from Lakewood Ranch, Florida


Laura had remodeled before and tried serving as her own general contractor. Recognizing that she didn’t want to experience those headaches again, Laura attended a Gilbert Design Build remodeling seminar and was impressed with their approach. Her kitchen remodel involved moving walls and redesigning her new space.

Laura’s experience engaging a company that handled everything from start to finish was much better ensuring there weren’t any surprises.


Kitchen Remodel
Scott Davidson from Parrish, Florida


Scott was impressed with his visit to the Gilbert Design Build showroom before starting his kitchen remodeling project. The designers were able to show Scott cabinets, countertops, hardware, flooring, and all other materials so Scott knew exactly the materials that would be used in his new kitchen.

Scott’s kitchen cabinetry design includes several drawers that make it easy for Scott to access everything he needs in his new kitchen. The experience went so well that Scott contracted with Gilbert Design Build a second time to have the bathrooms remodeled.


Kitchen Remodel
Franky Mills from Florida


The Mills family loved their new home, but they hated their tiny dysfunctional kitchen. The homeowners sought the help of the Gilbert Design-Build team and fell in love with the team's knowledge of design-build remodeling and their helpful attitude. When it was time to talk budget, Franky was nervous and didn't really have a budget in mind.

She worked with Ernest and the designers to create the kitchen she wanted at a price she could afford. The designer even hand-selected a few pieces she thought would go best with the Mills family's home and furniture. The selections were ready for the homeowners to choose from when they got to the showroom saving the family time and headaches.
