What Our Clients Say

“The original roof was only seven years old so finding out that we needed a whole new roof – the hard way – was disappointing. The team from Gillis Gilkerson addressed every single concern we had from the very beginning. They even called me on July 4th when we had bad storms in the area and asked if they could get inside the church to make sure everything was safe and secure. Now that’s commitment.”

~ Bruce Glisson,
Executive Pastor,
Allen Memorial Baptist Church

“Throughout my 17 years engaging on these types of projects, I can honestly say that Mike (Truitt) was one of the best contractors that I have ever worked with. Throughout the process, Mike provided superior customer service and his communication far exceeded my expectations. Most importantly, he delivered the building on time and with the exact specifications that were discussed. In addition to customer service, Mike and his company provided high-level workmanship. It was clear that Mike took pride in every phase of the project and that pride showed in the final product. Every part of the build out was delivered flawless. Both the interior and exterior of the building are beautiful!”

~ John Strzegowski,
Executive Director,
Mid-Atlantic Region – Catapult Learning
