    Thank you all so much and please make sure you thank the lads on our behalf.  A very special team. We just wanted to say a huge thank you to Neville, Dominic and the rest of the team at Gill Brothers for the total renovation of our ‘forever’ home by the sea. We embarked on a renovation journey, not having done anything on this scale before but Neville and Dominic worked with us to deliver our vision. The Gill Brothers team input their ideas which complemented and built on ours providing the end result we are delighted with, their constant focus was to give us what we wanted and regularly explained the detail during the build.  Neville/Dominic always gave us options to rectify or change design options.  Nothing was too much trouble, even when we had to wait for further planning permission to extend the garage. The full team are hard working, courteous, very tidy, talented craftsmen, including the sub contractors that were engaged to support the Gill’s team. We always said that we never had any problems with the people associated with the build, any issues we encountered have all been dealt with and rectified promptly.  We have had many compliments both from people known to us but also many strangers. The after build support is also invaluable, giving us total piece of mind. We would whole heartedly recommend Gill Brothers to anyone considering a renovation/new build. Thanks again.

    Gill Brothers undertook a considerable renovation project on our house. From the time the company were engaged on the task the brothers ensured we were fully informed of the work to be done, they always considered that this was our home and took appropriate care. The work moved forward at a constant pace and was very professionally executed. The finished renovation is of the highest standard, where the smallest of detail was carefully thought through. Our home has been transformed.

    Gill Brothers carried out extensive renovation work to our property in 2011 and we couldn’t be happier with the results or with the whole experience. Throughout the 6 month build we were regularly updated regarding progress and kept fully informed of any changes that were needed. The professional attitude of all the workmen on site was exemplary. They were ALWAYS here when they said they would be and were polite and courteous at all times. They even worked the occasional Saturday to ensure that they completed certain jobs with the least disruption to our family life. Gill Brothers organised ALL the tradesmen who worked on the property and this ensured that things went without a hitch. The workmanship on our property is AMAZING and the attention to detail second to none. We have frequently had comments about how lovely our extension is and how professional and perfect the finish is. This is all down to the skills of the builders and craftsmen who worked so lovingly on our home. We are SO happy with the experience we had with Gill Brothers and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone. They are reliable, professional, courteous and friendly and a complete joy to do business with

    We were absolutely delighted to have chosen Gill Brothers to carry out our building extension. From the time we first spoke to Neville about what was required, until the completion of the work, it was a pleasure to see the team work under the guidance and leadership of Ashley. The work was completed without a day missed ( none of this "we will come back in two or three days time") and the employees were as tidy, pleasant and courteous as any that we have ever come across. Nothing was ever too much trouble and some of the ideas that developed after the initial discussions were to our benefit. I think that the best testimony to this building firm in terms of tidiness, is that our neighbours were expecting to see our cul-de-sac left a builders site for the duration of the work, but outside our bungalow was left clean and tidy at the end of each days work. They also remarked how hard the team worked and this was unusual today. The standard of workmanship is exemplary and we didn't have a snag list at the end of the work. We also asked them to carry out extensive additional work to the interior and exterior of the building and this was completed completely to our satisfaction and without any hastle. The whole of the planned work was completed within 8 weeks and we are delighted with the finished result. We would have no hesitation in recommending Gill Brothers to any one requiring building work to be carried out. They are honest, skill-full, knowledgeable, realistic and above all, deliver what they quote to deliver. During the internal work, we were away on holiday and had no hesitation in giving a house key to Ashley Gill so that the work could be completed ( which it was ) when we returned.

    To our delight we were introduced to Ashley and Neville. As we were not living permanently in the area much of the discussion , negotiation and decision making was conducted remotely with regular site meetings when we visited. The whole process was absolutely fantastic. Alterations included a substantial extension and major restorative work to the existing house. Ashley was in constant contact with us , informing and advising on the best way forward. We learned to trust and value Ashley and his team who worked so hard and diligently in dreadful, wet ,wild Cumbrian conditions. Each time we visited the site it was quite overwhelming to see our lovely new home take shape. Local people were so interested and actually stopping us in the village and on the road to comment on how fantastic it looked. The standard of workmanship is exemplary and the finish inside and out, to the highest of standards. Ashley had very high expectations of everyone who worked with him and for him and our beautiful new home is testimony to that fact. "It's all in the detail" as Ashley would say. The whole team were always pleasant ,courteous and helpful but Ashley was a "star". We are so proud of our new home and have spent happy hours showing people around. This is all thanks to Ashley who saw our vision and made it happen. Thank you Ashley and your fantastic team. We recommend you unreservedly.

    We had Gill Brothers recommended to us and after our first meeting with Ashley we were impressed in our initial discussions with him. Whilst the work was relatively minor in nature – involving the replacement of a UPVC Conservatory with a purpose built block and tiled construction. It’s position, as an infill between existing elements of the property, did provide some detailed works as to valley and box gutters. Ashley discussed with us at all times any changes that he thought would be required to the original plan and indeed any changes/additional works we required. His advice was always good, practical and we felt was always in our best interests. Ashley and his team showed professionalism, craftsmanship and most importantly attention to detail at all times in their work and were a pleasure to have around the property whilst the work was ongoing. In hindsight the decision to employ them was one of the best we have made, so much so that we will use them again for any additional work in the future.

    We CANNOT thank you ALL enough for the fabulous job you've made of tearing down & re-building, to a fabulous condition, our kitchen, new bedroom, sunroom & bathrooms on the Highlands. We thought long & hard for months about building above our lovely kitchen (which was immaculate & fairly newly fitted along with the CREAM!! Karndean flooring). In 8 weeks your team transformed our home, first removing the whole kitchen & boiler to store in the garage. The roof & several courses of brickwork were stripped off including the gable end quoins. In all honesty, I enjoyed every minute of the time spent with you & your fabulous team of polite, well-mannered, respectful, & incredibly tidy workmen. The kitchen was re-fitted better than its original state. What a fabulous job - & no snagging list for us to deal with as EVERYTHING was done right-first time. ALL of you are an absolute credit to the Building trade without exception, every one of your team & your sub-contractors who worked so hard on our home has done an exceptional job. As I said to you on the final day, I've learnt a lot, laughed a lot, sang a lot, & cried (just a little bit when your lovely team left!!). Sincerely, I've missed you all since you left our home on the Highlands. We wish you all the very best for the future of Gill Bros & the wonderful team of sub-contractors that are associated with your great company. One word sums you ALL up - FABULOUS.
