Client Testimonials

We have used Gayler Construction for two very different remodels in our home; a new backyard pavilion complete with lighting, fans, and heating and a state-of-the-art skylight in our kitchen. In both instances, we were impressed with their professionalism, timeliness and cleanliness. Their communication to us was excellent and their workmanship was of extremely high quality. They looked to find ways to make improvements and changes to our original plans and frequently helped us save money in the process. We would definitely recommend Gayler to our friends without hesitation.

We truly enjoyed working with Gayler Construction. We were dreading remodeling our bathroom, but with Gayler’s help it was painless. Very professional, excellent staff & crew.

I had been putting off getting a new front door since I purchased my home over a decade ago. I had built it up in my mind that it would be an expensive endeavor, since my front door was a custom size. Once I started investigating it, Gayler Construction referred me to their preferred vendor who made the door selection easy and painless. Once I had made my choice of doors, he even made a suggestion for nearly an identical door at half the price! Gayler Construction coordinated the delivery and the installation of the door seamlessly. I always knew when they would be there and what to expect. When all was finished, the cost of the door and installation ended up costing less than half of the expense I had feared it would all those years!

But the customer service didn’t stop there. When the seal on the bottom of the door had an issue, they were out to repair it within a couple of days. At that time, Jeff immediately noticed that there was a drip of sap coming from the door, and initiated the steps necessary to repair it. Even though the door manufacturer took only a little responsibility, both Gayler Construction and their door vendor took full responsibility for making things right. It’s truly refreshing to work with a business that so obviously puts their clients first, no matter how small the job.

We are thrilled with our experience with the whole Gayler team. Their communication, timeliness and attention to detail surpassed our expectations. They are a wonderful family business and they make each of their clients feel like they are part of it too! I can’t wait to use Gayler for another project!

Really impressed with the whole experience. The crew showed up on time and tried to keep noise and mess to a minimum. They did a great clean up job before they left each day. All were very professional and easy to communicate with.

“Our project manager Jeff never said no to any of our requests – great attitude and very talented guy. Very well-run company and all of the employees seemed happy to work for the Gaylers. Great family run business. Easy to see why they get such high marks. Will definitely use them again for future projects. Have already recommended them to friends and neighbors.

Gayler Construction is a perfect example of our type of business – a small family run but very professional business. Our ideas were incorporated into the design but enhanced. Also a warranty book with care guides was provided. Everyone and everything was excellent.

I feel very fortunate that Gayler Construction was available and willing to redesign and rebuild my small, old, and rundown house this past winter. I had lived in this house for the past 27 years. George and Chris redesigned it into a larger and more functional house matched to me and my family.

It turned out to be a beautiful house of excellent quality, built in just four months and on budget despite severe rain in December. It exceeds my highest expectations.

I had many fears at the beginning including: my limited resources since I am retired, disturbance of my neighbors on our shared gravel road, and the unknowns with demolishing an old house.

Very quickly these fears went away and the process became exciting and fun. I developed a strong trust in Gayler Construction. Everyone at Gayler was responsible for this, but their project manager, Paul Panepinto, stands out. He was a true pleasure to work with.

Gayler Construction surpassed all of my expectations. It wasn’t a big job, but they treated it like it was. Fantastic Job!

We just completed our commercial project with Gayler Construction. They are an absolutely fantastic group to work with! They were not only on-time, on-budget, and super easy to work with – but they were there for us when we needed an unanticipated last minute addition after the facility was finished. I’m thrilled to recommend them for any commercial or residential project!

I don’t think I can say enough good things. Very efficient and a very good value for the cost in terms of timeliness, lack of hassles, and quality of finished product. Everyone was nice to work with.—friendly, respectful, cooperative. I couldn’t be happier with things.

It’s an enormous job that I didn’t really grasp until seeing it all pulled together by Paul and his team. And that doesn’t even include the behind-the-scenes stuff you all do with drawing and handling the approval process before anything even starts. It makes me really appreciate when you hear the winning quarterback or manager interviewed, and they thank the owner, general manager, assistant coaches, scouts, fans, and everybody else who you never hear about. Truly a team effort.

We have worked with Gayler construction on two projects to renovate and upgrade the front of our house. In both cases, Gayler Construction was able to provide a number of creative alternatives to solving our existing problem while enabling us to stay within a modest budget.

Both projects were completed on time and within budget and both exceeded our expectations. Our house now looks fantastic from the street making it a pleasure to come to after a tough day at the office!

We are planning on completing additional home upgrades in the future and we will definitely be looking to Gayler Construction for assistance.

From start to finish of the project, we always felt confident that the job was being performed to our satisfaction. We were provided frequent updates from both the office team and construction manager. As Two-time satisfied clients, Gayler Construction is the only contractor we will ever consider using in the future!

Congratulations on being selected the BEST of Danville – Well of course you won, no doubt you are the BEST! We have never, ever worked with such a wonderful crew on a building project and we have done many! The quality, care, craftsmanship, understanding and good will starts right at the top and trickles down to the last employee.

I thank my lucky charms Darlene that you walked into Miglet’s on June 9th 2010 and we chatted. We are loving the cottage and looking so forward to the main house being completed. If I could I would give you 10 stars…everyone should build a home with you!!

The Gayler Construction experience for us has been positive on every level….on time, on budget, professional management and staff as well as the after completion follow-up is THE BEST!!! It is near impossible to find an organization that does what they say they will do with a definitive plan and then deliver without cost overruns and project scope creep. It has been a pleasure doing business with you.

We selected Gayler Construction to do a major renovation of our home because we believed they, more than any other construction company, would be able to handle the size and scope, while completing the project sooner than any other. We were right!

Gayler performed a major renovation of our kitchen, family room, dining room and hallways including demolition, and installation of all new materials, lighting, electrical and plumbing. They took our 1970s home and brought it into the 21st century. They were painstakingly careful with all facets of the work. Their staff is reliable and professional. We continue to enjoy our new kitchen on a daily basis, not to mention the large screen television that now hangs in our family room. We are so pleased and have received numerous compliments from our friends, family and neighbors. We highly recommend Gayler Construction to anyone considering a high quality remodel of their home.

Gayler Construction provided an unsurpassed level of quality and customer service throughout the entire process of design, construction, finish carpentry, and follow up as we built our custom home.

We couldn’t have built our house without their guidance, and we had complete trust that the team was working to make sure that everything was done right and, more importantly, was a finished product that they were proud of working on and would last for a lifetime.

George and his team were wonderful. There are always challenges and surprises in a remodel and they were ready for whatever they uncovered. I had total faith in George.

Our project manager was excellent. He was eager to please and very, very helpful. We greatly appreciated his attention to detail and the fact that he thought of many of the little details which we would not have thought of, but would have noticed in the finished product.

We were also very impressed by the way the project flowed and everything was coordinated in such a timely fashion. Our neighbors mentioned they had never seen a construction crew show up so early every day and continue daily work throughout a remodel.

Neil and I wanted to send thanks for the wonderful work you did for us. It’s like we live in a new house and we love it! The kitchen is awesome never fails to get huge compliments. The flow of our family time is so much better too. It never ceases to make me smile when I am preparing dinner while Cameron is able to sit on the other side and do homework.

We have had the pleasure of having Gayler Construction work on several remodels and projects inside and outside of our home. We have been consistently amazed at the quality and craftsmanship of their work and their meticulous attention to detail.

Also, Gayler Construction’s strict adherence to their completion dates and daily observation of a time line was unprecedented by other contractors we had used in the past. They have made us extremely comfortable referring them to our friends and family alike. Lastly, George Gayler’s incredible design perception allows us and other clients to use only one company without hiring separate design and construction companies. Gayler Construction continually produces over and above our expectations!

What separates Gayler Construction most from other companies is their unsurpassed quality, impeccable attention to detail and superior customer service. Gayler’s unique project planning process keeps you involved and up to date on deliverables – no surprises. If exceptional quality and first-class service is important, Gayler Construction delivers. Our kitchen is beautiful!

The final result was a master suite that, in many ways, is now a work of art. We think that there is a difference between construction and craftsmanship, and Gayler clearly engages in craftsmanship.

The product of all this work was something that exceeded our expectations to the point that we walk in the master suite, marveling that it is ours and wondering how Gayler was able to accomplish such a beautiful job on time, on budget and without a single incident that caused us any concern. We are thrilled with the new master suite and even more thrilled to know that the next time we have a project we know who to call. Thanks again for working wonders in our home.

We have commissioned Gayler Construction to do several extensive remolding projects on our home; all of which were completed on time and on budget. They provide excellent quality of work, great follow-through, and receive our highest recommendation.

The formula works so don’t change it! It was the fortuitous personal referral of a friend that brought us to Gayler Construction. Without reservation we will recommend them to our friends and associates. George Gayler deserves our special thanks for his patience as we choose from among his many imaginative ideas those that particularly suited us.

His talents as an architectural designer are equaled only by his eagerness to be forthright about the duration of construction and transparent about costs. Gayler Construction is a family business which includes his charming wife, Darlene, and astute son, Chris, who’s responsibility it is to keep close tabs on out additional work orders and to track expenses.

We thought Paul Panepinto was a terrific project manager. He was punctual, thoughtful and communicative. He anticipated problems so we could consider solutions together. He took careful notes at each weekly meeting and followed up on the issues. He was quick to involve others with talents or expertise that he respected.

Special note must be made to Jeff Harteau who is an alternate project manager and master carpenter. On top of all this, Paul was an engaging conversationalist with a refreshing sense of optimism. As construction dragged on he would say something like ‘…this is going to be really, really, good’ or remind us of the wisdom to be gained from one of his many aphorisms. A few things could not be completed before our planned Hawaii vacation. In our absence we felt confident in leaving Paul in charge of installation of the front door, completion of additional electrical work and resetting of the house alarm before he left.

The communication with our Project Manager was excellent. He was there every day with helpful information, and the weekly meetings kept all pending issues at the forefront. He always responded positively to any suggestions we had. The Gayler design surpassed our expectations and incorporated some construction features that we would never have thought of.

The construction crew was always cheerful, clean, quiet, courteous and efficient. There was always some progress being made on the job and the quality of the work was always to the highest standard.

We love the entire Gayler Construction team. After working on multiple project with you; our kitchen, hall bathroom, master bathroom, converting living room into a den and moving, closing and removing walls in various rooms…I look forward to the next project that we can work together on in the future.

Before working with Gayler Construction I was always so frustrated with the construction process, but with your team the project always moves quickly, communication is constant and the work is finished ahead of schedule. Even the tiny things that your team does are noticed and appreciated: no smoking on the job site, the workers don’t park in your driveway, someone from Gayler Construction is always on-site to receive shipments, the job site is cleaned at the end of each day, the weekly meeting with the project managers…it is all appreciated, and it made such an impressive difference in working with you for the past several year and several projects. Whenever I hear that someone is considering a remodel, it is your name that I share immediately for so many wonderful, honest and important reasons!

After a terrible remodel experience that was never actually completed, we found Gayler Construction. They came in and completed the first remodel job, then remodeled another 1000 square feet of our house including an addition. The experience was amazing!

They were on time, on budget, truly professional, and always clean. They take pride in their work and it shows. Gayler is everything you could want from a construction company and more. If you want things done right the first time call Gayler. If you’ve had a bad experience before, call Gayler and you won’t ever call anyone else.

Gayler Construction is the best!! Being in the Real Estate industry, I hear nightmare stories all the time. When my husband and I decided to do a remodel, we interviewed four companies. Gayler was head and shoulders above them with their design and work ethic.

1. They showed up every day on time.
2. We had weekly meetings.
3. They put a white board in our garage so we could leave them messages if we had to leave for work early. There was always an answer to our questions when we arrived home.
4. And – finally – they finished on time and for the PRICE they quoted us at the start.

What more can we say! They are a wonderful and trustworthy company. And we love our newly remodeled home.

The house is UNBELIEVABLE. We are so thrilled by it. What an awesome job your team did. You all receive the highest marks for excellence. If only every business treated clients as well as you do!

Our family has worked with Gayler construction several times over the last few years. Two of the projects have been major remodels: the first, to remove interior walls, carpet, and flooring in an old house and update the interior; the second, to rebuild the kitchen, extend the dining room, add a bay view window, and a gas fireplace. With each project, we felt that we were truly in professional hands, from the quality of the detailed design and planning work, to the on-site organization and responsiveness of the crew, to the “Ahh!” factor when we saw the sparkling, well-finished detailing.

We do have experience to compare Gayler Construction with. On one occasion, we hired another contractor because his estimate was lower, but we ultimately paid in the form of stress, materials running over-budget, and the need to be involved with every detail of the project to prevent errors. We certainly feel that George Gayler has the experience to give you an honest estimate, stay within budget, and over-deliver with important details, like extra outlets and decorative items. Both George and Darlene, and their entire crew, are ultimate professionals, treating your timeline, your home, and your budget with care. We recommend them whole-heartedly.

We are so thrilled with our new kitchen and family room. The remodel is exactly what we hoped for; the transformation is remarkable. We can still hardly believe how smooth and speedy and even pleasant the whole process has been. We are impressed by the high standards and business culture that your company represents and we feel that choosing Gayler Construction was the best decision we could have possibly made.

Everything was kept running so far ahead of schedule that the project was finished in three months rather than the scheduled five months. It was frightening embarking on a project of this size and cost, but the very best decision we made was to go with the Gaylers!

Thank you hardly seems adequate to express our satisfaction with Gayler Construction. Your professionalism, attention to detail and support of our goals made it much easier than we dared hope it would be. Everyone was so dedicated to making our house come out just the way we wanted. Deadlines were met; and our comfort was always taken into consideration. We want to tell anyone who will listen what a positive experience we had!

Gayler Construction remodeled our kitchen and family room over 10 years ago. The design, product quality, and construction was such that visitors to our home think the remodel was recently completed! It is truly a timeless look. Gayler Construction stands behind their work and has always been responsive to the questions we have had over these many years.
