My wife and I want to express our gratitude for the wonderful craftsmanship and skill that you and your company provided during the remodeling of our home. You and your entire crew were easy to work with. Your level of expertise made it so much easier to make decisions concerning materials, design and function. Throughout the house the high quality of workmanship sets it apart. We could not be more pleased with our experience and the amazing finished home that we now enjoy on a daily basis. We commend you and your company and highly recommend your services to any and all of our friends and neighbors.
We selected Gil Montarbo as our general contractor for many reasons, knowledge of the industry, quality approach, sub-contractor relationships, honesty and problem solving. We think one of his strongest points is problem solving, trust me there will be problems but the key is how do you handle those problems and get them resolved so the project keeps moving forward. A contractor has to work with different materials, sub-contractors as well as city and county officials. Gil knows how to do this so it works out for everyone in a timely manner. In the end we had a beautiful home that was built by craftsmen all top of their areas of expertise. After we moved in there were a few items that had to be taken care of and Gil was always there to make sure everything worked and looked like it should. We highly recommend Gil Montarbo and his crew for your project
As homeowners new to the remodeling process, I feel blessed that we found Gil Montarbo. Working in the real estate industry at the time, I was impressed that Gil's name kept coming up as I asked seasoned Realtors for local remodeling company recommendations. Gil did an entire home renovation with an addition which required that we move out of our property for six months. He and his crew did an outstanding job, making a stressful process as easy as possible. His experience and calm demeanor were much appreciated as was his knowledge of local building codes and the county permitting process. I would highly recommend Gil and his team, and wouldn't hesitate to use him again
We love our home now just as much as when it was first built. The quality and beauty is timeless
Without question, Gil is a first class general contractor and it was a great pleasure to work with him. First off, he has a wealth of knowledge and experience about all facets of the construction process and can skillfully navigate the most complex of home building projects. There's no replacement for his many years of experience building quality homes. The home he constructed for us in Morgan Hill (approximately 5600 sq. ft) turned out wonderfully; we were completely satisfied. Second, and equally important, Gil's personable demeanor is quite helpful during what can be a somewhat stressful process. He knows how to professionally engage a client and patiently walk through the myriad of decisions that must be made. Options are clearly explained and he provides great suggestions to assist in a process that otherwise could be overwhelming. If any problems arise, he calmly explains the situation and offers solutions. Finally, he is very dependable. In our case he stepped in and seamlessly took control our project after the development company went bankrupt. The building process continued without a hitch until we had our final permit. Furthermore, well after the completion of the house, he was readily available and willing to come back and address any minor issues we raised. It's truly a pleasure to work with Gil. In fact, we were so satisfied the first time, we asked him to work on another custom home project for us and received the same great level of service
In the year 2000, our home in Morgan Hill, Ca was built with Gil Montarbo as our general contractor. We selected Gil because of a recommendation from friends who vouched for his honesty, integrity and pleasant manner...plus we were very impressed with the house he had built for them. During the building of our home, Gil's expertise on all phases of the construction was invaluable and the result was a beautiful, well built home that we are very proud of and is the recipient of many compliments. Like our friends, we too found Gil to be easy to work with, conscientious, and very professional in his dealings with subcontractors and others in the construction business
Gil did a fantastic job in building an attached porch addition in the backyard for us. We provided Gil with our basic design concepts. From that Gil provided us a detailed drawing and some very good options we hadn't considered. Gil managed the entire project from beginning to end, providing resources for the engineering and architectural drawings required by the city. The permit process took 3 months, and Gil continually provided us updates and did what he could to expedite the approvals. Once work started on the project, it never let up. Gil had everything lined up, there were no delays due to material or labor. Each time the city inspectors came out to sign off and approve the completed work, Gil's work always passed. Gil is a great contractor, reliable, honest, ethical and easy to work with. We were never left in the dark on the project. Gil always kept us informed and was eager to hear our feedback. We are very pleased with the completed porch, it exceeded our expectations. As the project progressed, the skill and quality in building the porch was very apparent. The new porch addition will last as long as the house, and blends in perfectly with the existing house. Working with Gil was a great pleasure. He took really good care of us, he delivered what was promised and then some. Simply put, it's a dream come true for us. We would highly recommend Gil to anyone who is looking for a reliable, knowledgeable, skilled, and most importantly, trustworthy general contractor.
Quality is never an accident; it is the result of high intention, sincere effort and never an act...it's a habit. From the very start of our remodel until the end, we knew we were in good hands. The finished product speaks for itself. A huge thank you to Gil and Jordan Montarbo for understanding our needs, and especially for answering all of our crazy questions.
The goal of any business is to have satisfied customers and have them return to buy more of its product or service. However, for most people building a new house or doing a major home remodeling project is usually a once in a lifetime event. Julie and I have been fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with Gil on multiple projects. We first experienced Gil and his team's craftsmanship and skill over 25 years ago when we purchased a spec home for which he was a major subcontractor. Since then we engaged him on other building projects, as well as to create the beautiful home we live in on the eastern hills of Morgan Hill. Gil is a pleasure to work with, accommodating when the last minute changes come up, and knowledgeable on all phases of home construction. If we ever embarked on another building project, Gil would definitely be the one we'd call on.
Great experience, perfect result! We hired Gil Montarbo GBC, Inc for our kitchen remodel, which included counters, tile floor, window framing, lighting and appliances. It went exceptionally smooth from start to finish. Gil and Jordan were there to help us conceptualize the remodel, guide us on materials, schedule the work and guide us through the process. They were there at each stage of the work to ensure the work done met our (and their) standards. It was well organized, the result was perfect, and we were back in our kitchen in under 3 weeks.
