Review by in Avon, OH
Our major kitchen expansion and renovation is finally complete and we are thrilled with the results! If you are considering a project, small, medium, or large, don't hesitate to reach out to Gillespie construction. Jim custom built things working only from a few Pinterest pictures and modifications in my head. Among these things, I now have a "baking nook", an insane over-the-top pantry, a bigger laundry room, and a place to keep my 800 cookbooks! He built them exactly to suit my needs, height, and arm span! My 100% satisfaction was his goal.

Review by Robert V.
Project: Remodel or Renovate One or More Rooms
Met Jim October 18 to discuss renovation of 730 square foot condominium. He said he would like the job, it would take 8 weeks, be completed by December 12. Relying on Jim's assertion I moved in December 19, allowing him an extra week. Upon my arrival the unit had no bathroom vanity or sink, hot water in either the kitchen or the bathroom. The old kitchen cabinets and countertops to be replaced were still in place. The two bookcases were not ready as promised. Without the cabinets or the two bookcases the boxes I packed could not be unpacked. With all the unpacked boxes taking up space I could not set up my king size bed. Most of my first month here was spent sleeping on the couch, sneezing on dust and taking cold showers. Three months later those boxes are still stacked up in my living room, falling apart under their own weight. The project, now in its 6th month, has ground to a halt. Jim has not worked here at the worksite since February 13. He told me to expect someone on February 23. Then he postponed the day of, until February 27. Then he postponed the day of again... We had a brief conversation on March 6 and he hastily dropped off a piece of the bookcase on March 8. That's it. He has not responded to my last attempts to reach him via phone or text. When he has asked for money I have not subjected him to excuses nor delays. As of March 21, work left to do includes: dishwasher installation (first attempt failed), washing machine installation (Jim lost my owners manual) and construction of plywood plumbing cover, construction of bookcase, installation of handles for sliding closet doors, bathroom outlet refinishing (first and second attempt failed), new front door lock (Jim lost my only spare key) and other items. Jim told me he had to make the bookcase smaller than I had planned on in order to fit it into the building's elevator. The bookcase was built but somehow a kerosene spill forced its demolition before it could be delivered! A second attempt at building the bookcase was made. However because Jim failed to measure correctly it would not fit in the elevator. Jim chose to literally SAW my new bookcase INTO PIECES. He delivered one piece of it but the others including the base are still missing. I still can't put my items on it. Jim had never installed a dishwasher in a kitchen with stone countertops before. Rather than research it on the internet where the procedure is easily found, he chose to jerry rig it. This installation is already failing. He has not returned to address it. I monitor the quality of the work myself and point out the bigger problems that I see. It's a frustrating and tedious process. I would much prefer that they would monitor their own work and save me the trouble. Most of these mistakes are clearly obvious. The 'measure twice, cut once' rule is not always followed. Insufficient attention to detail. The bathroom faucet and the kitchen faucet both became loose.

Jim and his crew were awesome! They went out of there way to do things right. Worked over and above to meet out tight dead line. Jim was very helpful with suggestions and problem solving issues with our home. We would highly recommend for your project.

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. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
