About Us

About Us

Cousins Tom and Kevin Gilday joined forces in 1979 to create Gilday Builders. Driven to create a more efficient design process, they pioneered one of the first design build firms in the Washington Metro area. Within 8 years they had become a nationally recognized, award-winning company.

With in-house architects, certified kitchen and bath designers, and project managers, the principals could now personally orchestrate the process from inception to punch list, ensuring supreme craftsmanship, service, and accountability.

Gilday works and builds with integrity because that’s who they are. They stand by their product, their people, and most of all, their clients.

Their clients reside in Bethesda, Chevy Chase, Kensington & Potomac Maryland, Washington DC, McLean & Arlington Virginia.

What Our Clients Say...

What Our Clients Say

" I would not have believed beforehand that the experience could be as good as it was. 101% wonderful. Glad we did it. And I know my wife feels the same."

- Anonymous, McLean, Virginia


" Everyone told me that renovation is a horrible experience to go through. It always takes longer. It costs more. For me, it wasn't. I knew everything that was going to happen up front. A very good friend of mine was renovating her house at exactly the same time as we were. Hearing her experience and my experience - they were night and day."

- Michelle Grace, Chevy Chase, Maryland

What Our Clients Say

" I'd spent years drawing designs on the back of napkins. So I had a pretty good idea of want I wanted to accomplish. Chris and Leslie were amazing at pulling those ideas together and coming up with solutions to problems that I never would have thought of."

- Yasmina Mudarres, Chevy Chase, Maryland


" Their carpenters are true craftsmen. Their kitchen and bath team have done a remarkable job, and their architects are among the most talented I have encountered."

- Chris Epstein, Washington, DC
