Condominium Upgrade

    I hired Gilday Renovations to give me a fireplace and mantle in my newly constructed and purchased condominium. As well, I wanted to have pocket doors put in the two open doorways leading from my main living area into the den. They were BRILLIANT! They handled all communications with and obtained approval from the Board of Directors of the building, obtained permitting from the county, and did all the architectural drawings, construction, and finish work with great professionalism and expertise. Absolutely the best! I highly recommend them for your dream projects.

    The Perfect Bathroom Upgrade

    Our master bath renovation was masterfully done. Kevin and his team are great listeners, excellent communicators, and skillful craftsmen. As a result, from the planning stage through the renovation everything went smoothy. Work began when all of relevant supplies were in their warehouse and all of the craftsmen were dedicated to our project, so there were no delays in the work. Our job was assigned a supervisor, an excellent carpenter, who was on-site for the entire project. He was fastidious in a good way, not satisfied unless his work and the work of outside contractors (e.g. for the mirror, shower doors, tile) was perfect. Our 'brand new' bathroom is beautiful and without fault. We could not be more pleased, both with the final product and the service and attention we received all along the way.

    Dream Kitchen Realized

    I highly recommend Gilday Renovations. Kevin Gilday and team gave me the kitchen of my dreams. I waited years to start this project, interviewing multiple design firms. Gilday was a terrific partner from start to finish. Their in-house architect, designer, and on-site project managers were all professional, caring, and talented.

    The kitchen project was a complete redesign & included the removal of a supporting wall. Then I made the decision to expand the project to also include hardwood floor installation on 1 complete level of my townhome, extensive painting, and a powder room renovation. All were coordinated by Gilday and completed beautifully.

    Their process is thorough and allows for collaboration, options, and compromise. No project is without it's challenges. What's most impressive about Gilday is that they anticipate issues, offer solutions, & take responsibility for resolution. They are fair and operate their business with the highest integrity. I would use them again without hesitation.

    Kitchen cooking and entertaining fun

    I would highly recommend Gilday! We used Gilday for a major kitchen and family room renovation. They completed the work on-time and were very professional with respect to scope of work and costs. They helped us with the project design, was highly professional and delightful to work with. The project manager, who oversaw the project construction, was extremely respectful of our home and space throughout the construction process. The new kitchen has made cooking and entertaining more fun, and it makes it easier to come together as a family.

    Whole House Makeover

    We hired Gilday to do a fairly large renovation of our home in AU park/DC.  This involved the addition of a master suite, family room and basement as well as removing an old side porch to become an office space.   From the attention to our existing landscaping and preservation, to making our indoor space livable while all of this was going on.....I can't say enough.  If you value quality craftsmanship, attention to detail, and customer service, Gilday is your contractor.  We really wanted to preserve the 1930 feeling of this house and keep its charm.  They did that. Their standards are high and you should be prepared for what that means financially.    I always felt that we had the ultimate decision on the designs and selections.  We worked closely with the architect and designers to keep within our budget.  There are always changes that come along and those were always our changes!  We are now four years out from the project completion and I still call Gilday about small issues in the house.  I feel like Kevin, the designers, and the project manager became like family to us.  They take pride in their work and it shows.  Having a point person with your on-site project manager always on the job, every day, is a huge bonus.  Gilday does not use a large crew....these are trusted craftspersons and contractors that Gilday select to work on your renovation.   I am grateful we made this choice, and get many compliments on our home.

    Multiple Remodel Satisfaction

    Gilday Renovations is the BEST outfit you could work with for building/renovating your home. I have used them for three pretty big projects. I was happy from start to finish. They are attentive to everything, professional, fair, trustworthy, and creative. Everyone I worked with could not have been more helpful and skilled. They defy all the jokes about how you'll feel about contractors at the end of your job ---- you'll feel so lucky to have found and used them ! Also, they have been exceptionally responsive to any questions or issues that have arisen since, taking care of anything in the months and years after our projects were completed.

    Gorgeous porch and patio

    My husband and I are so happy with Gilday Renovations and their entire team. The project has exceeded our expectations on all aspects from architectural drawings to the addition itself. We have had top notch customer service from everyone. They arrive every morning before 6:00am with drawings in hand and the whole team works hard every day. The porch and patio are gorgeous. We highly recommend Gilday Renovations for all your ideas and construction.

    First rate renovation and remodeling contractor

    Gilday is a first rate renovation and remodeling contractor. We had an extensive project including significant demolition, redesign and finish work. The quality of the work was exceptional. They were responsive with excellent project management and finish carpentry work. While not the cheapest option, they are clearly the most professional. A pleasure to work with and strongly recommended for any project.

    Amazing Workmanship

    Kevin Gilday has helped in many home projects - both cosmetic and renovations. His pricing was competitive and their workmanship from carpentry and plumbing were amazing. He also proposed different options for work based on my needs and finances. He was recommended from a friend of mine who hired him for a full house renovation. I would easily recommend easily Gilday Renovations.

    Saving Christmas for a repeat customer

    Over the past 11 years, we've used Gilday for two major projects -- refinishing our basement and renovating our hall bath -- as well as for numerous smaller projects.

    Most memorably, Gilday repaired the damage when our 70-year-old living room ceiling suddenly and inexplicably collapsed on Christmas morning, earning my eternal gratitude when one of their employees came over that morning to secure the room.

    Gilday's work is meticulous, and they stand by it long after it's done.

    Their designs are clever in the way they adapt old spaces to meet modern needs.
    Their employees are not only highly skilled but nice too, especially important given that they can spend all day in your house for weeks.
    We'll use Gilday again when we have another project. They're just the best.

    Kitchen transformed from dark, cramped and dysfunctional to beautiful and bright

    Gilday did a spectacular job of designing and renovating my kitchen. They transformed a dark, cramped, dysfunctional space into a beautiful, bright, well-designed room that is a joy to work and dine in. Everyone with whom I dealt at Gilday was professional, competent and pleasant. The designers had creative solutions to knotty problems that none of the other contractors and designers I consulted were able to deal with satisfactorily. The craftsmen and subcontractors all adhered to the highest quality standards. The firm stuck to the budget and timetable. Most remarkably, they went far beyond expectations in dealing with problems both before and after project completion. Over a year after the project was finished, I called with a couple of small issues and questions; everything was dealt with graciously and promptly. One of the items I had trouble with was no longer under manufacturer’s warranty; Gilday nevertheless replaced it immediately and without charge. After having had several less than ideal home renovation experiences, I was surprised and delighted by the high level of service provided by Gilday and recommend them enthusiastically.

    Gilday is the consummate professional. Extremely high integrity and I would trust Gilday any day. Always on time. A pleasure to work with. Gilday's is one stop with their staff of architects and interior designers and artisan carpenters; they are really top notch and a great team to work with. I highly recommend them.

    Friendship Heights Condo Remodel

    Gilday did a renovation for us, in a condo in Friendship Heights, MD, and we were totally satisfied with the entire process. They are incredibly easy to work with and as a friend of ours and fellow client said about them they find a way to get to yes. Whenever I went into the unit during the renovation it was always neat and tidy, even after a long day's work. They were always available for consulting during the project and it was clear that they wanted us to be totally pleased when they were finished. We were. Not every contractor can or will work in a building where there are very specific rules. But these folks are simply THE BEST.

    Two major renovations

    We’ used Gilday for a major renovation of our house 20 years ago and were very pleased with the quality and attention to detail they entire team spent on the project. We liked them so much we had them back to do porch with stone fireplace as well as a home theater in basement. Both projects turned out extremely well and have added immensely to the value of the house and made it much more livable as well. We’ve recommend them strongly over 20 years. The one thing that sticks out is there honesty and integrity throughout the process. And even after the last check was cut i know with confidence I could call them up with any problem and they’d be responsive.
