We had water in our crawl space and asked Chris from Gilliam to come over and give us a proposal on how to fix the issue. He charged me $250 to come out and take a look and said that he would apply the $250 towards the total bill if we accept his quote. I paid him the $250 to come out. Got a phone call from him that basically said "you have a problem with water in your crawl space! There was water in the crawl space!!!" which hello we already knew and hence the reason why we were paying him to come out! I asked for his recommendation on how to fix the issue and he said he needed a day or two to write up his recommendation and give us his quote. Mid you, he was really rude! His tone changed right after he cashed the check! That was in February, it's end of March now, we still don't have his recommendation! I had contacted him a little while ago to inquire and got a rude response and when I said I didn't want his quote anymore and relayed my disappointment, he said he'd refund the $250! That was March 7th and today's March 31, 2017 and still no check! This business is a TOTAL RIP OFF! Not to mention rude. I feel very cheated! It's not just about the $250 I paid for a quote I never received but about moral principle! This business has none!!!
Response by Gilliam Construction: We are very sorry to hear that this customer had a negative experience. However, it was explained up front that we were not going to be able to get a report to them for at least a week or two because we were very busy at that time. I think that all of my other customer reviews will speak to the fact that the way that she explained her experience above does not reflect how we do business and frankly, it was a little harsh and unfair and I did return this customers money. Sadly, it was not enough to keep her from writing this negative review. We strive to be honest, transparent and caring with our customers and their concerns in regards to their homes, their budgets and as people in general. Sincerely, Chris G, Owner.

They did work for us approx 4 years ago. Gilliam Construction came in and did a total renovation on our landscaping. They woud have stayed on their estimate if we wouldn't have kept adding things to do. We are very pleased and will stay in contact for further jobs.

All estimates of time and costs were very accurate and costs seemed very reasonable. The contractor Chris Gilliam removed old and installed new insulation and removed old siding and installed new and installed an underground drainage pipe connected to roof drains and replaced front door frame and door during trying conditions of cold and wet weather. Everything looks and works great. Am a happy customer and will use Gilliam Construction again on future repairs or remodeling of my house.

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.
