Review by in Stamford, CT
Cecy was wonderful to work with on our overall design and she was always willing to make an extra trip back to finalize or fix something that wasn't right. Her rates were reasonable, they cleaned up every day they were here, and the work was completed quickly.

Over the last 16 months, Cecy Gillen Designs have done project after project for me including a full renovation of two bathrooms and a kitchen. I could not be happier with the results and plan to continue using them for any future projects. I was happy with the quality of their work and their reliability. They are trustworthy and respected my home. Cecy is a talented designer and helps you to realize your vision for a beautiful space through just the right tile, flooring, color and fixture selections. I appreciated the personalized level of service that Cecy provides and always making herself available when I had a question or concern. You will find no better communicator than Cecy. Not only does she respond to emails/phone calls in a timely manner, but she initiates contact on a regular basis to update you on how the project is going, what they will be working on next and what their upcoming schedule is like. And lastly, Cecy is an excellent problem solver. I have an old house and there were so many unforeseen roadblocks along the way that I thought would derail the project for sure, but Cecy was not to be deterred by these challenges and always seemed to find a workable solution which I appreciated greatly. All in all, they are a wonderful team and I thank them for all that they have done to make my house a beautiful home.

We needed a variety of repairs to get our home ready for market. I didnt want to spend alot, just cosmetic repairs. Ceci totally got it. She found a salvage door to replace our front door, she replaced panels instead of entire garage doors. The project kept growing and they had to juggle their schedules to fit us in. Great company for a variety of work.

Review by in Trumbull, CT
Cecy, the owner/designer is a very nice person, and her design sense is wonderful. Her crew however, although polite and clean, do not come across as professional. Several items had to be redone, and although they were willing to redo these items, there were several issues at the end of the job that were NOT rectified, and no apology was made for this.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate.
