We have an older home that required some creative out of the box thinking. Right off the bat I knew Neil was the guy for me. During the quote process he was thorough and honest about what might be behind the walls and potential other costs that could arise. Throughout the process he was responsive to our questions and requests. Neil and his team are amazing. We are re-loving our completely re-done second floor including an amazing dream bathroom and looking forward to working with Neil on the rest of the house!

We found working with you and your crew a pleasure. The jobs were done in a timely manner, the workmanship professional. Looking forward working with you again in the spring.

In 56 years of marriage my Mom can probably count on one hand the number of people who came into her home to do or fix anything. There was nothing my Dad couldn’t do or fix but with advancing age and failing health (and a somewhat stubborn disposition) a lot with the house fell behind. While Mom wanted to start getting things cleaned up around the house the prospect of embarking on a renovation was to say the leaset- daunting and then you walked in the door... Thank you so much for not only what you did but how you got it done. Everyone who came into my Mom’s home was kind and respectful and the quality of their work-outstanding. I appreciated your patience particularly in the light of how much I know you had on your plate. As I told you before, taking Mom shopping as Tamarack when she was completely overwhelmed was above and beyond and greatly appreciated. She is at the end of her first renovation experience, looking forward to the next one. Thank you for everything.

We consider ourselves very fortunate to have been recent clients of Gilhome Carpentry and Renovations. Our project was the replacement of our worn deck, and Neil and his team came to us highly recommended. They did not disappoint, and exceeded our expectations. Neil arrived when he said he would to assess the job and prepare an estimate. He and each member of his personable, friendly team worked steadily through each day, and were very conscientious about cleanup on a daily basis. Neil willingly accepted specific questions and suggestions from us, and also made helpful recommendations as the project moved forward.

The deck that he has created for us is absolutely beautiful. We are impressed with his careful attention to detail, and regard it as a piece of art that adds value to the appearance of our yard. The price he quoted remained constant, even though Neil went over and above what was required of him. He was not satisfied until we were satisfied.

We would readily engage Neil and his crew to do further work for us in the future, and recommend him most highly to anyone needing building or renovation work.

It is now a month since the completion of renovation of our family room, hallway and bathroom. Place looks great. Bathroom is amazing, clean and we made the right decision to change the location of vanity and toilet. It works much better this way. Shower is perfect. Family room and hallway look great. I am extremely happy with the decision to remove the popcorn ceiling. It would have been terrible to look at the popcorn ceiling when everything else is renovated and done so well. We are proud to show the place and enjoy the renovated area of the house very much.

In short we are truly happy with the outcome of the renovation project and the work you and your team did for us. You stated on agreed date and true to your word finished within specified time of 6 weeks. During the renovation all work areas were kept clean and all waste materials promptly removed. We congratulate you for all the work you do. Thank you and much success on your future contracts and projects!

Thank you for the beautiful new kitchen! We could not be happier. You are a great project manager and trouble shooter for the first time homeowners and rookie renovators, who did not know how much of a pain IKEA cabinets are and who did not know all of the small details of renovations.

Nadiya & Andrew, Hamilton

Gilhome Carpentry & Renovations

Neil and his team completed a full renovation of the main floor (Kitchen, Living Room, and Dining Room) of our side split home in Burlington.

From the quoting process through to completion of work, Neil and his team were always professional, courteous and accommodating. Neil made sure we were always kept informed and walked us through every last detail (which can get overwhelming given this was our first major renovation). Thanks to the level of communication and Neil’s team’s ability to meet their commitments, our renovation was as stress free as can be expected.

We are 100% satisfied with the job that was done and will be calling Neil and his team the next time we are looking to renovate

Rob, Burlington

Gilhome Carpentry & Renovations

As a client, I look to have any renovation job go to an entrusted team to ensure the job is completed on time and within budget. What’s important to me most is a company’s professionalism, knowledge and experience.

Gilhome Carpentry & Renovations strive to give a top quality finished product to their clients. They listened to what I wanted, and were able to make suggestions that benefit my space. Their attention to every detail from design to the finish product exceeded my expectations.

I highly recommend and would work with them again.

Lilah, Burlington

Gilhome Carpentry & Renovations

Gilhome Carpentry & Renovations was recommended to us by friends. Neil and his team renovated the main floor of our home during the winter of 2016. We had several contractors in to see the house and give us estimates. From our first meeting with Neil we found him to be honest, straightforward and professional.

We lived in our home during what was a fairly extensive renovation. We were quite impressed with how tidy they left the house everyday and the temporary door they installed to our second floor to keep the rest of the house as dust free as possible. As well as how good his entire team was with our small children.

Neil communicated with us on a daily basis and any issues were dealt with promptly and professionally. He followed through on the construction timeline and budget. Everyone who entered our house was respectful and professional. Finally we are very impressed with the level of craftsmanship, and the attention to detail in the final product.

We look forward to using Gilhome Carpentry & Renovations for our future projects and would recommend them to others without hesitation.

Thank you,

The McGrath Family, Burlington

Gilhome Carpentry & Renovations

As a recent client of Gilhome Carpentry and Renovations, we are pleased to highly recommend Neil and his team, as a reliable construction firm, providing the highest level of guidance, workmanship, reliability and integrity.

We feel fortunate for having selected Neil and his team to undertake our total home interior renovation, a six-month endeavor beginning in September 2015. Renovations were completed on time and on budget.

Neil personally supervised and coordinated every aspect of this extensive renovation, providing us with valuable insight and suggestions during the planning and execution of the project.

Not only was Neil easy to contact and communicate with, he was always extremely responsive to our concerns, and offered and shared many ideas. He is obviously well respected by his trades people who we found to be of the highest calibre, and very accommodating. They share the same pleasant and communicable traits as Neil. They all respected our property in our absence, and kept the workplace quite clean, safe and organized.

The overall attention to detail, and the focus and follow up from all of his team in addressing minor issues and details, especially in the final stages before sign off, was reassuring. Neil was with us from beginning to end, and has assured us that he will be available if there are further issues or additional projects.

We highly recommend Neil and his organization, to anyone undertaking a sizable renovation investment, where mediocrity and uncertainty are not an option.


Mark & Chantal, Mississauga

Gilhome Carpentry & Renovations

We found Gilhome Carpentry & Renovations through the Baeumler Approved network and are happy we chose him as a contractor for our bathroom renovation. He is neither the cheapest nor the most expensive contractor out there but what you will get for the price is quality craftsmanship from a trustworthy guy and his team. Any issues we had were quickly resolved to our satisfaction. Every person that entered our premises was courteous and respectful of our home. Simply a great group of guys who are masters of their craft. We haven't had any issues with our bathroom since the renovation (probably because the work was done properly!) but I know that Neil stands behind his work and would address any issues promptly. Therefore I would recommend Gilhome Carpentry and Renovations anytime.

Tanja, Hamilton

Gilhome Carpentry & Renovations

We gutted our ensuite bathroom shower and installed tile. Replaced the bathroom floors and toilets in both our bathrooms.

From the first moment I met Neil I felt very comfortable. He is very professional and confident with his skills and knowledge and provided me with some great suggestions.

I communicated with him mostly by text and he responded in an acceptable timeframe; always same day. He was always on time and very conscious of letting me know what next steps were. The 2nd week he was here we were away on vacation. He kept in touch and when we returned we were very impressed at how clean everything was. We love the finished product!!!

I am SO happy with my renovations. Neil was phenomenal-- It was a real pleasure to work with him and I wouldn't hesitate to hire him again.

Eileen, Mount Hope

Gilhome Carpentry & Renovations

Following a significant amount of water damage caused by a frozen pipe we were in need of a reputable, reliable and quality contractor to repair and renovate the main floor and finished basement. We are very pleased to say we found that contractor with Gilhome Carpentry and Renovations. Neil was great to work with in helping with the design of the project, establishing the scope and developing timetables that were efficient yet minimized the impact on our daily activities. Once the work commenced we were impressed with the quality of the workmanship, the respect shown for our home and the attention to every detail to make sure we were satisfied with the end product. Neil's team (Jon, Will, Jeff) as well as his sub contractors were all very professional and excellent tradesmen with a visible pride in their work.

The project was completed on schedule, on budget and the final product was outstanding. I highly recommend the Gilhome Carpentry Team! Thanks guys.

Ed, Burlington

Gilhome Carpentry & Renovations

We recently renovated our 4 level split home and working with the right people was extremely important to us, not only to get the best results, but also to enjoy the process as much as possible. We decided to work with Neil Gilhome and his team as he made the biggest impression on us from the start. His approach is direct, honest and professional. Our renovation involved knocking down walls and opening up our main living space and adding a new kitchen, new windows and new flooring on all levels. Neil provided us with a 6 week schedule from demo to finish, detailing the entire process. It is with no exaggeration that we say, he was on schedule each week and in the end, TO THE DAY! His experience shows in so many ways. He provided us with contacts that we needed above and beyond his scope of work and went out of his way to check in on other projects and workers to ensure quality. We had gone with a custom kitchen company and window contacts made prior to meeting Neil. Our only regret was not having Neil manage the whole renovation. Even though we were managing and coordinating different jobs, when we were having issue with the window company, Neil stepped in and made great recommendations; when we needed to make decisions on kitchen layout and details, Neil offered his opinion and stepped in to help problem solve. He is always thinking ahead and solving potential issues before they arise. His contacts and team workers are fantastic and very professional - a testament to their respect for Neil!

Most importantly, Neil took what is known to be a very stressful process and guided us along the way with compassion, professionalism and a great sense of humour. We have great respect for Neil and his workmanship. We will ALWAYS recommend Neil Gilhome for any home renovation project without hesitation. Should you be considering working with Neil for your renovation project, please ask him to provide our contact information to you and we would be delighted to share some more of our experience with you.

Neil, thanks for our beautiful new home and the great energy you brought to it!

Chris and Lori, Burlington, Ontario

Gilhome Carpentry & Renovations

We hired Gilhome Carpentry & Renovations to rebuild our basement after it was flooded. Right away Neil had a number of ideas to make our basement more functional and his kindness and dedication to his work was evident in our very first interaction with him and continued throughout the entire process.

Neil and his crew were amazing. Not only is their work top notch, they approach their work with the same care and respect as if it was their own home. Work was completed on time, any issues were immediately brought to my attention and discussed and they made the renovation process easy and peaceful especially since I worked from home.

Neil gave great suggestions when we were unsure how to proceed on our fireplace and gave us ideas on where to shop and purchase supplies of good quality. His crew made sure we were happy with the progress and kept us involved.

I cannot say enough good things about Neil and his crew and will highly recommend them for any job you may have. I feel honoured to have been able to have our basement rebuilt by Gilhome Carpentry & Renovations.

Thank you Neil for all you have done to restore our home. It has made a huge difference to have our house become our home again after the flood.

The Hefkey Family, Burlington

Gilhome Carpentry & Renovations

Neil Gilhome single-handedly changed my opinion of contractors with his excellent work, unparalleled professionalism, and on-point quotes and job timeline descriptions. Neil was very straight-forward, did an impeccable job, and was at all times very respectful of me and my home. Everything I asked for was done, and attention was paid to details I didn't even think to ask for. Neil never once gave misinformation, and was always on time and prepared to work hard. I couldn't give him a higher recommendation, and I will never hire anyone else.

Aniko, Toronto

Gilhome Carpentry & Renovations

Thank you to Neil and the crew at Gilhome Carpentry & Renovations! We had a large built-in bookcase that we wanted in our family room and you guys did an amazing job. Having a lot of questions, Neil was patient and took the time to answer everything. Every detail from our first communication to the day of installation was handled very professionally - the team arrived when they said they would and even though every wall/ceiling/floor in my house is severely crooked, the bookcase looks fabulous!

I'd recommend Gilhome Carpentry to anyone looking for a great contractor. I am now planning my next project!

Sharn, Oakville

Gilhome Carpentry & Renovations

We are extremely happy with the work that Neil and his crew did for us! With just rough sketches to work with, they created exactly what we wanted and, with our second child due any day, the team worked hard to complete the job as quick as possible. Finally, we cannot say enough about how much the crew focused on cleanliness and keeping the dust contained - it's amazing how much such a simple task goes such a long way! We would not hesitate in the least to call Gilhome Carpentry for any future work that we have!

Thanks again for all of your help with our house!

Nick and Sam, Toronto

Gilhome Carpentry & Renovations

Once again, Neil Gilhome and his crews of excellent craftspeople, have completed our project on time and on budget.

The kitchen renovation was by no means the scope of the project they completed during last fall. This was "only" a complete gut of the kitchen, to the bare walls and new wiring, to accommodate the many appliances, which are used in a kitchen today, compared to a kitchen wired for 1948. A new floor was installed, new lighting, and the kitchen cabinets. The kitchen was reconfigured to our idea of how a kitchen should be laid out, which required new plumbing.

Since they were there, already making a mess, we had them replace stairs leading from the kitchen to the basement.

As usual, there were changes to be made along the way, which were, as usual, handled well and easily by Neil and his people.

Oh, the joys of a project well done. Thank you to everyone involved.

Frank and Robin, Burlington

Gilhome Carpentry & Renovations

We would like to thank Gilhome Carpentry & Renovations for the projects they completed on our house. Neil and his team were professional, punctual and on budget.

Neil assessed our project, took measurements, explained his recommendations and answered all of our questions/concerns. After our first meeting we knew Neil was the right contractor for us.

Once we accepted Neil's quote he set up a schedule and notified us when the work would begin. Like clockwork the teams showed up and completed the work as planned. Whenever a situation would arise Neil was transparent and addressed it immediately, taking care of our needs first.

We would highly recommend Neil and his Associates. Neil stayed on budget, did what he said he would do, and ensured we were satisfied with his craftsmanship.

Ina and Steve, Oakville

Gilhome Carpentry & Renovations

When we made the decision to finish our basement we reached out to local contractors and met with a few.

I wasn't home to meet Neil but my husband said instantly that he liked him and that he felt comfortable with him. Neil answered all the questions and had ideas for how to do things with the basement. He was professional but not stuffy; he is just a nice guy who is easy going. We were given a 6 week timeline for the project, which was fine as we knew it was realistic. The quote was on par with others, but their finishes were actually higher quality...which is worth it to us!

When the team (Jon and Jeff) started on the basement we knew that we had made the right choice. They were quick and efficient and guys you were ok with having in your home. Every night the workspace was left neat and tidy, which was amazing! They really know what they are doing and asked us every time they felt that there was a decision to be made that had a few options. Loved that! They communicated with us on how things were going and when they felt that would be done. They were cool with me going down to sneak a peek on the progress.

The other guys they have on are amazing as well. Electrician was awesome as was the mudding guy. Awesome guys that gave us the best basement!!

I could go on and on about how great they were but I want to be sure I hit on the important points so that anyone reading this knows that they are the real deal.

  • Always clean and tidy and left the house in great condition at the end of their workday
  • Always communicated with us on the progress and decisions and ideas.
  • We were quoted 6 weeks, they finished in 4!
  • Used large high end baseboards and real wood door trim.
  • They are attention to detail guys....returns on trim work and perfect mitred corners.

We would recommend Neil and his team to anyone !!!! They will be getting the job next time we have any renos to do!!


Tara & Clayton, Burlington

Gilhome Carpentry & Renovations

We have been fortunate enough to have Neil and his team at Gilhome work on two of our houses. Neil’s professionalism, hard work ethic and honesty were evident from the first moment we met. Both renovations were top notch, fairly priced and completed in a very timely manner. We are extremely impressed with Gilhome and will not hesitate to call on him again, or to recommend him to friends and family.

Jenn & Jeremy, Burlington

Gilhome Carpentry & Renovations

Neil put us completely at ease from the day we met him when we considered our first major home renovation. We felt confident that he would provide the quality workmanship and professionalism that we were looking for and he did not let us down. Neil outlined his plan very clearly with the time line we should expect. He kept us up to date of the activities week by week and was flexible with some changes we wanted to make along the way. He also made some great suggestions that we had not considered. Neil's crew were friendly, hard working guys who were very respectful of our home during the renovation and left a clean site at the end of each day.

We have already had some great compliments on our reno and would not hesitate to call Neil again and recommend him to any of our friends and family.

Thanks again for making this a positive experience Neil, with a new living area we will get lots of use out of!

Leigh & Bruce, Burlington

Gilhome Carpentry & Renovations

If our rebuild were to have made headlines it would have read, “Local Contractor, Neil Gilhome Builds House Around Existing Wine Cellar in Basement!”. As it is, our rebuild made headlines only to us and we are as satisfied as any two customers could be.

Our rebuild started off as a renovation but ended up as a complete new house build on the pre-existing foundation. Step one involved getting an architect/designer to design our new home and Neil put us in touch with David Carrothers & Associates. This proved to be collaborative and professional. Ultimately, we ended up with plans that reflected our needs and David’s knowledge of the building process. He also guided us through applying and receiving a variance to add a garage and new entry to the existing foundation.

Once demolition and reconstruction commenced with Neil and his crew, we were nothing but impressed with the open communication, on site supervision and professionalism of his men. We “badgered” Neil with phone calls day and night and yet he maintained his calm, relaxed demeanour. When problems arose, as they inevitably do, Neil exhausted every effort to achieve a solution that was agreeable to us. Neil worked closely with his tradesmen yet was open to us using our own when necessary.

Our custom home is enhanced by the finish carpentry and by the cabinetry that Neil facilitated and in many instances performed himself. Often, with only a picture from the internet or magazine as a guide.

We are thrilled with our home and would highly recommend Neil for any building project, large or small. Oh, and about that wine cellar? It fits seamlessly into our new downstairs bar area.

Dick & Julie, Burlington

Gilhome Carpentry & Renovations

We have used Gilhome Carpentry & Renovations Ltd. for a number of projects. In all cases the results were wonderful. In particular, they renovated our kitchen and family room which we are very pleased with. Their schedule was reliable and their attention to detail was exceptional. We found the quality of workmanship to be incredible and all the trades are very nice, easy going and neat.

We have been very pleased with the professionalism of each job, all look fantastic and all came in on budget and in a timely manner!

Both Rob and I would not hesitate to recommend Gilhome Carpentry & Renovations Ltd. and will likely use them again in the future!

Leslie & Rob, Burlington

Gilhome Carpentry & Renovations

We would recommend Neil Gilhome unreservedly. He recently renovated our basement. We asked several people for quotations. Two people did not turn up; two turned up but then never returned with a quote. One was always late in turning up. We selected Neil since he gave a fair quote and was professional in his approach and promptness. He turned up when he said he would and started the work on time. His people were very pleasant and accommodating and took steps to keep the house clean. They always told us what they were going to do each day and what the schedule was. The work was completed on time and we never felt as though there were any conflicts with his time with competing projects. The work quality was first rate and we are delighted with our new basement.

I have recommended Neil to our neighbours for a similar project and would recommend him to anyone.

Jim, Mississauga

Gilhome Carpentry & Renovations

We recently had extensive work done by Gilhome Carpentry & Renovations Ltd and have nothing but high praise for them. Prompt, courteous, helpful with decisions, excellent workmanship and clean working environment.

We give Neil a 5 STAR and would be happy to recommend him.

George and Lynne, Burlington

Gilhome Carpentry & Renovations

To Neil & all of the miracle workers of Gilhome Carpentry,

I just wanted to take some time to express my deepest thanks for the incredible job that you all did on our basement! From day one Neil, you helped us make good decisions that lead to the overall ‘vision’ of our finished basement coming together seamlessly. For a couple living in a mid-sized house, with a mid-sized budget, we wanted to maximize on our living space & make the most of what we had – you assisted us in doing this, and much, much more! Both you & your crew certainly exceeded our expectations & now we truly have an additional living space for our little girl to play in, our in-laws to stay in & a spa-like bathroom to just ‘get away’ in!

From day one, your crew always arrived on time & in high spirits which is important when you have a three year old! We all really enjoyed getting to know your team & now that the job is done...we almost miss having you here! When you weren’t onsite, your staffs were always very informative, respectful & fun to work with. More importantly, they were all hard-working & attentive to detail which helped to get the job done on time & ensured that there were no oversights. I have to say that the quality of workmanship that you have demonstrated in our basement is far superior to anything we’ve ever witnessed! All of our friends & family agree that you really did a beautiful job. I’m sure that I don’t have to tell you what a great group of guys you have on your team as well – It’s clear that you have trained them to be knowledgeable, detail oriented, punctual & courteous. In particular, Dan & Jon were fabulous & I couldn’t possibly say enough to thank them for being here day in & day out. They always put in a good days work & left the site clean & organized...again, important when you have a three year old running around! You really have something special in those two!

Now...to save the best for last, how do I thank YOU Neil? I’m sure that we (well, I!) had some crazy ideas for our basement & yes, I am a product of too many decorating shows! Thank you for always taking the extra time to explain things in detail & help us to make the right decisions for not only our basement, but our house too! It’s clear that a lot of planning went into making every square inch of our basement count & that’s in large thanks to YOU! We’ve never been through a large-scale renovation project before & really had no idea where to start. We wanted to make sure that the overall ‘functionality’ of our basement was done right the first time. Your patience in helping us make the right decisions was very much appreciated & now that it’s all come together – it’s better than we could have hoped for! You were always there to keep things on track, on time & within budget & that’s amazing! All too often, you hear of nightmare stories of contractors & renovations gone wrong....but for us, this has been a dream come true & it’s all thanks to Gilhome Carpentry & Renovations Ltd.!

With much appreciation for a job well done,

The Raynor Family

Gilhome Carpentry & Renovations

After getting quotes and talking to several different contractors we hired Neil and his team to complete our kitchen renovation. He made us comfortable and listened to what we wanted done. He made several changes to the plans at the beginning so we were happy with the finished product. He was the contractor you'd hope for. He started on the day he indicated and consistently kept in contact to inform us of the progression and what was happening when. The work environment was clean and the contractors were friendly and professional. I completely trusted all of them in my house. The renovation was completed on time and the work was outstanding. We are so pleased with the finished project. We know that if there was a problem with any of the work done we could call Neil and he would be here. We would definitely hire Neil for any future jobs we have and would recommend him to anyone who needs a great contractor.

We have had two occasions to hire Neil with our renovations at two separate locations. Neil and his team have provided excellent service and skill in a wide range of changes to our homes. We don't hesitate to recommend Gilhome Carpentry & Renovations.

Judith & Alan, Burlington

Gilhome Carpentry & Renovations

Gilhome Carpentry has been a great resource both at Home and Business, I have dealt with them for ten years and they have completed many Projects for me, from drywall, decking, windows, doors and flooring, bathrooms & kitchens. They are always on time; there work is First Class and looks great when finished.

Prokleen, Oakville

Gilhome Carpentry & Renovations

We have had the good fortune to use Neil and his team on a few occasions now and we are certainly planning to hire him back for our future renovations. His crew works efficiently, always ensuring that the job is done to the highest standard. We appreciated the way the team left our home clean on a nightly basis, and always did their best to ensure our family life was not interrupted too much by the ongoing work in the house.

Neil has a great approach when working with his clients- he has always been very candid about the scope and cost of every job he has quoted. His honesty has given us the faith that we can count on Gilhome Carpentry & Renovation to give us the product we requested, both in a timely and cost effective manner.

We were lucky to have found Neil and company and very happy with their work. Looking forward to the next reno!

Julie, Toronto

Gilhome Carpentry & Renovations

Neil and his crew are wonderful to work with. They are friendly, efficient and make sure everything is cleaned-up before they leave each day. We added a few more jobs to the original plan which wasn't a problem for Neil. Above all, the work done by Gilhome Carpentry & Renovation is very professional. I would recommend Neil to anyone who is looking for a top notch renovation company.

Debra, Burlington

Gilhome Carpentry & Renovations

Neil and his crew showed up on time on the date that they had prearranged. I found them to be courteous and hardworking, as well as punctual. We had a few changes that we needed to address during the course of the renovation and Neil was always willing to listen and make the changes as decided. He was also able to call in a plumber for us when we ran into some unexpected challenges with the plumbing we thought would be a simple job. Not only was the work completed to a high standard and in a timely manner, but within the estimated cost, and Neil and his crew maintained a safe and clean worksite.

We would be happy to recommend Neil and his company for any renovations being considered.

Leigh & Elaine, Toronto

Gilhome Carpentry & Renovations

The first house included a “full gut” renovation, including framing, plumbing, hvac, electrical etc. for the entire house. It was an old home in the Beaches area of Toronto and needed significant work. Neil was on time and on budget even though we put him under a very tight timeline and made numerous changes to our original plans. We were very satisfied with the work and the professionalism of this team. As a validation of the quality of his work, we were able to sell the home for $600K, 2 years after purchasing it at $350k and investing $115k in renovations.

Our second house required less work but it was still a century home with a variety of challenges. We had Neil manage a collection of projects that included refinishing/replacing of hardwood flooring, a 4 piece bathroom renovation including marble tile and heated floors, a powder room renovation with cork flooring, removal of numerous walls on the 3rd floor and a custom oak railing, construction of a new walk-in closet, kitchen counter and sink replacement and numerous electrical upgrades. Once again, Neil was on time and on budget and the work was impeccable. In addition, they were good at limiting the dust in the home and we did not find one stray nail or screw. This was very important to us as we have a toddler.

I will be using Neil for future renovation work and would highly recommend him.

Chris & Tanis, Toronto

Gilhome Carpentry & Renovations

When our house went up for sale last year, we had some renovations and fix ups to do to get it ready. We called on Neil and his crew to help us out. They responded promptly and the work we required was done expertly and was on time ready. We were very impressed by their professionalism and attention to detail. I wouldn't hesitate to call on Gilhome Carpentry & Renovations for any job we need, big or small.

Julie, Burlington

Gilhome Carpentry & Renovations

As a realtor, I see the workmanship in many homes, both good and bad. After meeting with Neil, I decided to use his services to build my custom home in South East Oakville, the project took roughly a year to build, and Neil was with us throughout the process. His finishing work was outstanding, so good that this year I had him return to finish my basement, which I am delighted with.

I would have no hesitation in using his services again, and indeed will on my next project.
