Testimonials

Here's what some of our satisfied clients have to say:

 

Mr. Silva completed a home improvement project at our residence during which he oversaw the installation of two, new windows in our family room on a wall in which previously there were no windows at all. His team worked quickly, with a careful eye for detail, and very importantly with specific care for cleaning up all debris at the conclusion of each of the three working days it took to complete the project.

 

Prior to doing the work, Mr. Silva developed a very competitive bid. After agreeing on the price, we requested a minor change to the original description of the work, which added a small amount of new work requirements. Mr. Silva promptly revised his estimate, again with a very competitive, revised estimate (accounting for the added materials and labor), and he arranged for his work crew to begin work the next day. Note that relative to the speed at which all the work was accomplished, we were completely satisfied.

 

Also prior to beginning work, Mr. Silva “walked” us through all of his plans and made it very clear to us how he intended to complete the project. Further, he solicited input from us along the way to make sure that his work was satisfactory, during the course of the completion of the project; thereby, ensuring our overall satisfaction with the completed effort. As mentioned, Mr. Silva paid careful attention to small details. For example, rather than attempting to compress the work schedule even more, he took the time to ensure all the work done on the drywall had the time to set/dry adequately, prior to completing the finishing work of installation of the rounded edges we requested that frame the interior of the window spaces. By taking allowing for this extra time in his schedule, he was able to complete all the final “detail” work without leaving any scrapes, scratches, nicks, or marks of any kind in the wall. In the end, it now appears that the windows were part of the original construction of the home.

 

To sum up, we are 100% satisfied with the work Mr. Silva did for us. Further, we strongly recommend his services to anyone interested in hiring a construction contractor. In fact, as funds allow, we look forward to working with Mr. Silva again on future improvements in our home.

"Gavin Silva and his crew built, from the foundation up, a two story wing onto our existing house. This project doubled the size of our home and was structurally very challenging. Gavin identified design and construction issues as the project progressed, providing solutions and working with the project structural engineer to resolve the problems. This allowed us to keep within budget and on schedule. Gavin and his crew were professional, personable, and always on time. We highly recommend Gavin Silva and his crew and would not hesitate to hire him again."

I partnered with Gavin in 2009 to build a brand new house in Boulder Creek that we sold in Jan 2010 for a profit. He's the contractor, I'm the real estate agent. Gavin and his team were great to work with. Very professional and they got all their work done ahead of schedule. If I found another project I would do it again in a second. Gavin has also helped me on several projects for my own home and again I was very happy with the work. Its good to have this resource, someone I can count on to be honest and professional, wow what a concept! Thanks Randy Z

"Gavin and his crew were very professional and did great work. They showed up every time they said they would and called when they would not be on the project. We will hire GS Construction again. George and Cindy Drew

 

"I would like to submit this review as a recommendation for G. S. Construction Inc. I had a complete kitchen remodel including all new custom cabinets, granite countertops, tile backsplashes, installation of all new appliances and special lighting. I couldn't be more pleased with the job - beautiful! The teamwork of the crew was impressive - Gavin was here each day to supervise and coordinate, and he was always available by phone if I had a question or request. The entire team was diligent, friendly and cooperative. And the job was completed well within the time period originally proposed. I unhesitatingly recommend G. S. Construction."

"Very good quality, good communication, fair and balanced execution with any additional item that came up. I think a fair price also."

  "Gavin and company was prompt, friendly and very helpful. We hired them to repair an aging deck and some termite-infested eaves. He was able to fix everything quickly and kept us appraised every step of the way. We'd be glad to use him again for larger projects we have coming up."
