Dreary to Dreamy Kitchen

Chuck has a very creative mind and works well with what he’s presented… The difference before and after is incredible. It’s hard to describe the magnitude of the change and the beauty of the finished product.

C.T.Gabbert Remodeling completely remodeled our 1950s kitchen. Wow, they did a good job. Our lead carpenter Kyle worked through any challenges that this older home threw at him and really made our new kitchen everything we hoped it could be and more. Devin designed my dream kitchen and Caroline help pick out finishes and kept us informed on progress on a daily basis. The Gabbert team made what can be a stressful situation work more smoothly for us. We would recommend them to anyone that has a remodeling project they want done right.

A Beautiful Finish (bathroom, kitchen, and basement).

They listened to our ideas and came up with a design that was exactly what we had in mind… we have a beautiful master bathroom and a stunning basement and…. we have made lasting friendships. We will always be grateful for such a positive and fantastic experience!

I wish to commend the men who constructed my patio cover! Chris was a very hard worker and I would describe him as a perfectionist! Scott and Brian were also good workers. Every man who carried equipment and tools (Allen and Quinton and Kyle) were considerate and professional also. I am very happy with my bathroom and patio cover! Thank you, Joe, for your calls and updates and Chuck for your visit.

Once again (this is our 4th project), I want to take this opportunity to thank you and your crew for the wonderful job you did remodeling my kitchen and TV room. First of all, thanks to you, Caroline, and Devon for your suggestions help with selections, recommendations, and quick response to any questions and concerns that I had. Secondly, a very special thanks to Eric Zimmerman. His expertise, skill, work ethic and guidance throughout the entire process made the remodel go very smoothly. As the lead carpenter, he did a fantastic job! Also, thanks to Joe, Dan, Pat, Quentin, and Allan for all of their help. I was so pleased with the results. The positive response from my neighbors and friends has been overwhelming. Thanks again for a job well done.

Wendy Davidson (East Peoria)

We had a partial kitchen remodel. New counter top, cooktop. backsplash, sink, and faucet. The result was outstanding. Workmanship is awesome. The crew showed up on time and finished in a timely manner. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. You won’t be disappointed!!!

Martha Schmitt (Peoria)

We LOVE our new master bathroom! Our remodeling project was recently completed and had been our first major remodeling experience. It was also our first experience with a “full-service” contractor. We couldn’t have been more pleased with choosing C.T. Gabbert! From our very first phone call to the last switch plate being installed, every single person involved with the Gabbert team was a true professional.

Ken & Jean Freeburn (Germantown Hills)

We are writing to let you know how efficient and professional George Segler was in remodeling our bathroom. He was conscientious of keeping areas clean after the day’s work and keeping us informed of the progress. When other contractors were needed, he explained what they would be doing and when expected to be here. Everyone was prompt and a job is well done, it looks great and appreciated all of George’s effort. We are very pleased that we contracted your company.

Dennis & Barbara Bechtel (Peoria)

It is a privilege to extend to you my congratulations on being named the East Peoria Chamber of Commerce Small Business of the Year. This award was undoubtedly well-deserved, and I want you to know how much I applaud your success throughout the years. Keep up the great work, and please do not hesitate to contact me whenever I may be helpful to you. Thank you for everything that you guys do. Proud to call you my friend! Hope to see you soon.

Mike Unes, Illinois State Representative, 91st District

I am writing this letter to forward the highest accolades for your employee, George. George represents the epitome of the high quality that C.T. Gabbert represents to our local community. For our bathroom renovation at the above-listed address, he was very personable (always!) – He oversaw the entire build. He is meticulous in his work to the highest standards – start to end – punctual and hard-working to a tee. He kept us informed throughout the renovation – he showed us his work and told us what he would be accomplishing during the next several days. George took personal ownership of the project and allayed our concerns, answering all of our questions. He went above and beyond at all levels, giving the highest quality. In fact, he oversaw the electrical and plumbing sub-contractors, being our best advocate! He is an outstanding ambassador for C.T. Gabbert. My wife and I are very impressed with your company. We will both use your company again and pass along to all who will inquire as to the very high quality and professionalism of your operation. You have our consent to use this letter for advertising your company. Please thank Mr. Seglar and your entire team for a job very well done!

Douglas Heath (Mapleton)

We have spent the past few days getting settled back into our kitchen. We love the remodel! The kitchen is beautiful, as well as the new cabinetry in the family room. The fireplace looks amazing. Thank you for your help pulling it all together! We will enjoy it for many years to come.

Linda & Alan Kupper

Just a note to tell anyone thinking of a remodel project that we highly recommend C.T. Gabbert. We did a large remodel project last year remodeling a 70’s home. We had a home that had a separate kitchen, living room, family room and dining room. Now it’s all open. The project required us to move the kitchen, take out several walls. One was load bearing and one had a wood-burning fireplace. We now have wide open spaces and love it every day! Gabbert and his team worked with us on the design of the project and then did the demolition and remodel. It changed the entire first floor of our home, adding value to the home as well as bringing it up-to-date. See our results on their website under kitchens “Out with the walls”.

Mike and Nancy Stone (Dunlap)

Chuck was willing to come out and give us some new ideas that were different, not cookie cutter. The designs we had in mind – he was able to take those and make them more elaborate, a little more livable.

Mike and Becky Davis (Tremont)

One of the things I liked most was when Chuck would come into the house and look around. He would spot things that we hadn’t even considered and incorporated those into the plan, and some of those are some of the things we like the most now. And then once the work began, the workers that came were the best. They were on time, they took care of everything, they gave us updates every single day, of how the work was progressing. Everything stayed on schedule, and we were just very happy with everything at the conclusion. Definitely talk to Chuck. His ideas are great, and I think that you’d be happy with anything he does for you.

Sandra Schifeling (Morton)

You couldn’t find a more professional group of people, and in Chuck, there’s somebody who always takes your best interests to heart when planning and executing the project. He was very accommodating because we knew that the project would include a lot of demolition. We’d have to get rid of basically two walls for sure, and then as the project unfolded, we actually decided that we wanted to open up one other space. But the only wall that was there was a load bearing wall, and we thought, “Oh, we can’t do that.” And Chuck was able to say, “No, I don’t think that’s quite the case. Let me take a little look here.” We were able to cut back a wall that was a load bearing wall that he was able to do some creative work on to still maintain the integrity of that and still give us what we wanted in that area. So some things we weren’t even sure that we’d be able to do, we thought we might have some limitations, but those didn’t even turn out to be limitations. That made us very happy.

Todd Schifeling (Morton)

I knew immediately when I met him. I thought, Here’s a professional, a master craftsman, and he can get the job done and get it done right. He’ll always check back, “How’re things coming along?” After the project’s done, maybe in a month he’ll call back, “How are things with it? Is everything still good with the project?” And that means a lot, too. Like I said, it was our starter home 45 years ago, we’ve added some things and obviously, nothing lasts forever. You need new windows, new doors, a new roof. And I’m really happy with where we’re living and intend to stay there. That’s why Chuck Gabbert is the person I’ll call.

Bruce Landwehr (Peoria)

They came out and did the measurements, and then we went to Chuck’s studio. We brainstormed: Chuck was the brain, and we were the storm! Chuck has a very creative mind and works well with what he’s presented. We knew that they were making good progress, looking good. The difference before and after is incredible. It’s hard to describe the magnitude of the change and the beauty of the finished product.

Alan and Carole Willadsen

Thank you for the remodel of our kitchen. Having it completed just before the holidays greatly improved our celebrations of the season. We appreciated the planning process that allowed both your innovative ideas while keeping features and fixtures that were important to us. In a small kitchen like ours, that could not have been simple. The design has greatly increased the storage we have available. We also appreciate the craftsmanship of those who worked on the site. On-site modification of the cabinets after they came was important to squeeze every inch out of the limit space we had available. It was the difference between wasted space and a hidden medicine cabinet. They always took care to prevent a mess from spreading and cleaning up what was left at the end of each day. Another important service to us was planning for temporary fixtures during the project. Having a temporary sink and counter made life a lot easier while construction was going on. Again thank you for your work. We have and will recommend you to our friends. I guess the best sign of our happiness with you would be this: When you have time, let’s talk bathroom.

Barry and Jeanine Rolett

Even though I’ve said these things to some of your staff, I want to make sure you personally hear how pleased I am with the way Jackie’s suite turned out. She loves it, and everyone who sees it is absolutely wowed. Above and beyond the quality of the work, you should know that the quality of your staff made for a great experience. Everyone was great to work with… All of them were always cordial and responsive, really a pleasure to work with. It was wonderful that Caroline took the time to see the completed job. She treated us like friends and not just customers.

Roger and Jackie French

The C. T. Gabbert team did an outstanding job on my basement remodeling project. I found several key differentiators from some other experiences I’ve had. First, every member of the team was very accessible and responsive, including Chuck, the designers, and the project manager. If they weren’t immediately available, they responded quickly to phone messages, texts and emails. Second, this team listens to what you want and then puts forth creative ideas to make it better. I ended up with a floor plan far superior to what I initially envisioned with little touches that just added some “Wow” factor. I would add that I had the same experience working with Chuck on a bath remodel years ago. He and his team just think of those finishing details that probably would not occur to the average homeowner. Finally, the onsite crew was outstanding. Anytime they thought of alternative ways to do things, e.g. how to treat an angled wall or a multilevel ceiling, they asked us what we thought would look best instead of just making the decision. They were also extremely polite and personable. My sister is thrilled with her new living space, and everyone who has seen it is wowed.

Roger French

Robin says to tell you that she likes the finished bathrooms… She tells people that the bathrooms are Caroline’s since you played such a big role in the way they look.

Greg Ramsay

We are so happy with the entire staff at C.T. Gabbert. Caroline was a huge help with putting everything together, Devon did a fantastic lay out and Mr. Chuck Gabbert and Joe were right on top making sure all went well. Our main contractor…was very professional, very meticulous, and always respectable. Thank you to the entire staff at C.T. Gabbert.

Karen Kipfer

Our new bathroom is much more than we anticipated. You took a very small space and transformed it into a beautiful bathroom. The quality of workmanship and material is outstanding. It certainly is a plus for our home. We enjoy it and will for years to come.
