Gidley Remodeling

Here’s What They Say:

"Now that I have had time to adjust to my remodeled home I just wanted you to know what a great job your firm did completing on time and on budget my whole house remodeling project...Complete with three new beautiful bathrooms, a functional playroom/finished basement for the kids, new front staircase, two bay windows and numerous other amenities your expert crew did a super job marrying the old with the new in a seamless way. The final touches of the new roof and floor refinishing with the interior/exterior paint job completed the renovation project to my total satisfaction...."I highly recommend you and your entire crew to anyone in the need of a reliable and honest general contractor."

Kim Lamantia
Darien, Connecticut

"Over the last 18 years, we’ve completed eight projects with you ranging from replacing the exterior siding on our home to remodeling our three bathrooms including skylights, custom cabinetry and finishes, and oversized marble shower; replacing doors and hardware throughout our home; building and installing drawers, counter tops and bookcases in our living room; finishing a basement room including the subflooring, flooring, electrical work, walls and painting; handling several painting jobs inside and outside our home; and replacing the roof two years ago. On these projects you and your team have delivered exceptional results each time. We think you and your organization are in a class by yourselves!!"

Clare-Marie Karat, Ph.D.
Greenwich, Connecticut

"This is a belated formal thanks for all the work that you have performed for us in substantially refurbishing our home, inside and outside, in Greenwich. As you know, some of the tasks were quite challenging, particularly the chimney repair, and, frankly, you were the first person that ever found those challenges both interesting and solvable. It is to your great credit that your estimates were accurate, your workmen were polite, efficient and timely; and that you continually were interested in getting the job done right, on time, and with the minimum disruption"

Barney Phillips, IV
Greenwich, Connecticut

"When we ran into many serious post construction project problems: nine roof leaks, faulty construction, sloppy and incomplete construction… only to name a few items…after our two year whole house renovation debacle we turned in desperation to your firm for help after a medical colleague and close friend highly recommended you as the best...Now nearly one and a half years later, our originally botched construction project is totally repaired and completed to our full satisfaction thanks to your steadfast and continued efforts to unearth the myriad of construction faults and defects we were faced with from our previous builder... In an industry fraught with horror stories such as ours, you stand out amongst your colleagues as an excellent builder who can be implicitly trusted to deliver the highest quality of workmanship standards available."

Rosalie Greenbaum, Ph.D.

"Mr. Gidley worked with me to create an estimate that was within our budget. The pricing accurately reflected the final cost of the project, except where my wife and I added additional work... Mr. Gidley provided me with his personal cell phone number and was always accessible during the job. He visited the worksite promptly whenever I requested it, and was always helpful in resolving whatever problems arose... His crews came promptly, when they were supposed to come, and continued working nonstop until the job was completed. I mention this because other contractors I have dealt with disappeared for weeks or even months during a job, leaving the work half completed. Mr. Gidley’s workers were polite, professional and skillful."

They have the highest ethical standards, and they are solidly committed to upholding their mission statement. In reviewing the materials they are using to enter the Better Business Bureau's 2000 National Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics, I was impressed by his efforts to run an upstanding and ethical business."

"On January 5, 2000, I presented GidleyRemodeling.com with HBRA's 1999 Remodeler of the Year Award. The three hundred member HBRA bestowed this honor on Mr. Gidley in acknowledgement of his company's long standing reputation for honest and fair business practices; exceptionally high ethical standards, and quality remodeling work. The distinguished 32 year record of GidleyRemodeling.com, and more specifically, the company's work with the State of Connecticut in resolving consumer complaints against other contractors, has raised the standard of the remodeling profession in Connecticut."

Joanne Carrol
Past President HBRA

"This letter of recommendation is to highly commend the "Design-Build" company of GidleyRemodeling.com for the truly super job they did for my wife and me on our newly constructed "Car Barn". To say we are pleased with the completed construction project would be an understatement. We are thrilled to have worked with a builder as good as Steve who oversaw every little detail and aspect of the design. Steve is an inventive builder who had forward looking vision and turned our dreams into an award winning construction project."

In every respect you and your crews fulfill these criteria and have continuously for the past (18) plus years we have used your services to maintain and update our colonial in North New Canaan."

Patricia and Alan Church

"Nearly four decades ago, Paul and I contacted your firm to install vinyl siding and a new gutter system on our home. Since then you have completed over a dozen major projects and at least twice as many minor ones all to my complete satisfaction. I unhesitatingly highly endorse your construction firm and highly recommend you personally for small, medium or very large residential construction projects as mine have run the entire spectrum and each and every one of them were finished on time, on budget and to my complete satisfaction."
