Testimonials - What our customers think


Dave Gilbert and Gilbert Construction were highly recommended to me by a client in 2006 and I asked Dave to quote for undertaking extensions and refurbishment of our house and hard-landscaping of its gardens. It was immediately clear that Dave was very knowledgeable and accomplished, and most importantly, someone we could trust. In all, D Gilbert Construction carried out extensive works to our house and gardens which took several months to complete. Throughout that time, he was a pleasure to deal with and his own team and all contractors he used were reliable, professional and considerate.

Dave is practically-minded, a real ‘problem solver’, and since completing our own house, he has carried out much more work for us, and other members of our family. This has included the complicated refurbishment of one of my offices, and investment properties. At all times, Dave has stuck to the timescale he set out and nothing has ever been too much trouble for him.

I have no hesitation in recommending Dave Gilbert and D Gilbert Construction to anyone.

Richard Saunders FNAEA MARLA

I have used Dave for about 20 years, and in that time he has shown himself to have the highest of standards in terms of the quality of his work, his team, his cleanliness, and friendliness. His advice and suggestions in many successfully completed projects, have always been excellent. I thoroughly recommend him to anyone wanting a high standard of workmanship, and a quality finish in their home."

Steve Pomroy Epsom Downs

We first contracted Dave Gilbert to do a substantial upstairs extension at our home in 2007. It transformed the house.

Since then he has also redeveloped the kitchen in 2009, made improvements to other rooms and constructed a family room extension on the ground floor in 2012.

He has also done outside work including the construction of a substantial stone patio at the rear of the house.

He has an acute eye for good design and has made suggestions for the improvements of plans which has greatly enhanced the finish.

We would never consider using another builder. His workmanship is of the highest standard and he is a pleasure to deal with, utterly trustworthy and reliable. He has recommended other trades to us and as with him they have only been of the highest standard to who we have always been very happy to return. We would recommend with pleasure and without hesitation.

John and Ruth Price - May 2015

We were very pleased with the extension, this was a difficult job but Dave and his team worked very hard to produce a great result

M.W.Betchworth

We are very pleased with our new shower room. The work was carried out very professionally and Mr Gilbert was an excellent Project Manager and always available to advise.

RH, Epsom Retired Chartered Surveyor

Dave had come highly recommended by a friend and also several of our neighbours, so we employed his company to build a single storey extension in January 2015. Having now completed the work we are delighted with the results, and would also highly recommend Dave ourselves for many reasons:

  1. Great communication - Dave always picked up the phone or called back in no time; this was really reassuring.
  2. We had lots of plans of how we wanted the end result to look and Dave was great at interpreting and implementing our ideas, always finding a solution.
  3. Great team – every single member of Dave’s team were just thoroughly nice! They were all very courteous, helpful and professional.
  4. Having your home disrupted with interior building work is never easy but Dave kept the impact on us to a minimum.
  5. We have absolute trust in him and will definitely be using him again.

Wendy Bookham

We were recommended to D Gilbert Construction when looking for a builder to undertake a large and very unusual extension on our home. The project took a year from start to finish, and during that time, we were impressed by Dave’s consistent attention to detail, friendly and professional liaison with us, our architect and all subcontractors used. Ten years later, we employed his firm again to renovate another part of our home and we are just as delighted with the result.

We would and have recommended them to others also looking for a top quality builder.

Jane and Chris Bates

We have worked on two very significant projects with Dave Gilbert, the first being a 3-storey addition to an elegant Victorian gatehouse on the slopes of Reigate Hill. This was a demanding design, having to co-ordinate precisely with imperial brick modules, and with many purpose-made brick specials for the details. This project required a focused and disciplined team to produce the standard required and indeed achieve. Both the client and ourselves are extremely proud of this building, which would not have been so successful without the quality of finish provided by Dave Gilbert Construction.

The second project was a complete house refurbishment in Bookham, Surrey. This involved extending and reconfiguring the bungalow on the ground floor, and removing the existing low roof and reconstructing it to provide a generous first floor with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. This was an intricate conversion to an older property with many challenges. Again, the house was completed without any construction or contractual issues, and all to a very high standard.

I would happily recommend anybody to include D Gilbert Construction on their tender list.
