What Our Clients Say

“We are truly grateful for the care and concern Gillis Gilkerson demonstrated during the entire construction process from the groundbreaking in May 2017 through to our celebratory dedication in April of 2018. We are especially pleased with the leadership and coordination of Don Murray and the day to day attention and care we received from Charles Morris. They, along with the other GGI team members and your many able subcontractors, are to be commended for their outstanding services. They should all be proud of their work.”

~ Tom Shuster,
Project Manager,
St. Paul’s by-the-Sea

“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

“Gillis Gilkerson has an exceptionally positive culture with everyone at all levels working toward a common end, each with his or her eye on the best possible outcome for the customer.”

~ Peter Jackson,
Eden, Maryland

“From start to finish, Gillis Gilkerson was phenomenal to work with. Through the bid process they were completely on target and with the timeline of the project. Tyler Barnes is hard working and a pleasure to work with. He pushed the project through the short timeline and really went above and beyond to meet our deadline.”

~ Jeffery Phillips,
Developer

“At every stage of the project, everyone was concerned about our needs and listened to our comments. More than that, every effort was made to accommodate us whenever we had a need or made a suggestion.”
