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!

Mary and I wanted to thank you for the great work that was done during the complete remodeling of our bathroom. We are very satisfied with the final result and wanted to let you know. Your proposal was the most expensive of the three we received, however, based upon your thorough presentation during our selection process, as well as the quality of the products that you use; we are glad that we decided to have your company do the work. We appreciated the time that you took and the suggestions that you made to help us choose the materials for the project. We are also grateful for your understanding and cooperation when we had to delay the start of the project. Your lead carpenter took great pride in his work to make sure that everything was done in a quality manner. He communicated well with us throughout the project and found ways to handle unforeseen needed changes that arose with electrical and plumbing problems. We would certainly recommend your company to others considering remodeling projects and we look forward to getting a future proposal from you when we decide to remodel our kitchen.

Now that the deck and basement projects are complete, we want to let all of you know how pleased we are with the quality of work, and professional attitude of employees. Even from the inception of the projects, Chuck gave us his knowledgeable, forthright recommendations, answered my concerns via email, and then Caroline efficiently handled the details from the office. Lead carpenters worked diligently as a team, as well as the other workers who joined them. Everyone was courteous, and it was a pleasure to work together. Throughout the course of both projects, we noticed that they took the time to “do it right” and we’re thrilled with the results. It is exactly as we had pictured it. Again thank you for your excellent craftsmanship and attention to detail. We, our family, and friends will enjoy both the deck and basement are for years to come.

Amazing! That is how we would describe our experience with the C. T. Gabbert crew! We wanted to finish our basement and remodel our master bath. We had no idea what we wanted until we made a visit to Gabbert’s showroom. After talking with Chuck, Caroline, and Devon our “projects” started to take shape! They listened to our ideas and came up with a design that was exactly what we had in mind. The colors, finishes, and layouts were amazing from start to finish. When Chuck came to our home, he was able to give us ideas that totally fit our needs. He even let our little grandson help with the measuring. Our lead carpenter, Jeff, was very experienced and his work was so precise. He took the extra time to do a fantastic job. Absolute perfection! He made sure our floors were protected throughout the work area and he cleaned up the area every night. We were treated with respect and professionalism. That’s how the whole team treated us! Chuck, Caroline, and Joe stopped by on numerous occasions to follow-up on the progress and always asked our opinions and made sure everything was to our satisfaction. The work ethic was impressive! We had workers here every day, Monday through Friday, not just every now and then. They were punctual and courteous. In the end, 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! We would highly recommend C. T. Gabbert for any job in your home. We will certainly hire them again! Thank you!

Thank you to all at CT Gabbert for the beautiful bathroom remodel. I especially appreciate all the little details that require special attention. I love my new bathroom and look forward to working with you in the future on another project.

Jane Cushing (Peoria)

Al and I want to thank you and let you know how much we appreciated the flowers and towels you gave us. We both enjoyed your phone calls and visits!

Al & Kathy Tyre (Peoria)

Thank you for designing and building our beautiful new bathroom upgrade. Our realtor had suggested that those modifications would make the master bath consistent with the other home features that put our home at its price point, and your execution of the project exceeds our expectations of meeting that goal. You and Steve were careful to communicate effectively and avoid mistakes or misunderstandings, and the worksite was always left cleanly organized. Caroline has a great eye for color and contrast in materials. The outcome is exceptional!

Doug and Mary Allan (Washington)

5 stars! From the moment we met everyone at the Gabbert’s, we knew we were in safe hands with our bathroom renovation. Chuck, Caroline, and Devon were great to work with from the start. Joe, George, and Jeff did an amazing job completing our dream bathroom for us. I would highly recommend this business for any home renovation project you may have!

Ron and Robb Lombard (Peoria)

Just a note to let you know how much I love my screened deck your company built this past summer. The design that you and your team came up with was what I wanted and the finished project has met my expectations. Steve and his crew did a great job building the deck as well as communicating with me and keeping me informed on how things were being built and why there were being done that way. His carpentry skills put my mind to ease that the deck addition would turn out as a quality finished product. The team that worked here always answered all my questions and if needed would make calls to get answers.

Chris Ford (Dunlap)

Thanks for a beautiful kitchen. Pat worked his magic with your plans. He was hard-working and amiable. I appreciate the time and effort the Gabbert team took to redo our kitchen.

Greta and Bud Shipp (Peoria)

We would like to thank you for the professional manner in which you and your employees handled our kitchen remodeling project. Everyone we met from your company was thorough and the work was of very high quality, including all of the subcontrators work. The attention to detail was well appreciated. The cabinets build by Showplace are wonderful and are exactly as we designed. Caroline was especially helpful during the design phase and did a great job of scheduling the work. She seemed to be completely in tune with our wishes. She immediately responded to any of our questions and concerns and was a joy to work with.  The “Plaster Man” was simply great. We cannot tell where the ceiling was patched and he made it a seamless wall. Gabbert Construction was responsive to our ideas. As your company slogan says “If you can think of it, we can do it” and you did!! We were really happy that the work was finished by the planned completion date.

Richard and Kay Henz (Peoria)

Thank you Gabbert Construction for another job well done. Joe, Pat, and Brody were amazing, very professional, trustworthy, and polite in answering my questions. They went above and beyond and their attention to detail was outstanding.

Dawn Rivard (Peoria)

A BIG THANK YOU goes out to C.T. Gabbert company and the workers. We were in need of having a partial bathroom remodel. I really did not even know where to begin. I made the call to C.T. Gabbert with questions. I was told to come into the showroom and they would be happy to help me. We were introduced to Caroline and all of our worries were taken care of. The worker that came out to the house was so good and excellent at his work, we were really impressed! Our bathroom is up to date and looks beautiful. This has added resale to our property Thank you for the job well done!

Ann and Rick Rodecker (Peoria)

We are so thankful for the hard work all of you put into building our new home! From twisting the insurance adjusters arm to designing, selecting materials, to the long building process and all the finish work, we have a beautiful home we are proud to show off. We love it!!

Andy and Terry Felix (Washington)

Thank you for your continued support of the Alzheimer’s Association. With your support, we were able to raise $132,500+ and had 800 people participate in the event! Thank you for all that you do in our community!


I am writing this letter in appreciation for the renovation work carried out at our home by George and the team. They have done a commendable job. Gerry and I are totally satisfied. It was an extremely difficult task of renovating a century old house. George and the team working with him has successfully done what was desired by us. The bathrooms have been modernized in the house and have successfully captured the whole essence of our decor. I want to thank George and the team for all the hard work that they have put in. They had to put up with my demands and tolerate my constant questions; especially George. George was always professional, courteous, patient, pleasant to be around and always had a smile. I would like you to convey my appreciation to all of them and especially George. You are certainly lucky to have someone with his talents and dedication as part of your organization. Congratulations on an excellent performance and thank you.

Vickie and Gerry Burroughs (Delavan)

Thanks for checking in with us. We love the shower remodel. It looks FABULOUS and our cleaning lady really appreciated how easy it is to clean!!!

Jolene Cote

I am writing today to sincerely thank your team for the excellent work that they did to transform our office building from the grungy fixer-upper that it was into the gorgeous place of business that it’s become. Joe Gabbert was an excellent point man, always answering our questions quickly and keeping us up to date on the latest developments. And Jason and I are especially grateful for the efforts of George the lead carpenter. His work was meticulous and consistently top-notch, as was his attention to every detail. He has a journeyman’s skill and an artist’s eye, and he and Brody were helpful and friendly throughout the process. They listened and were always responsive when we had concerns or suggestions. We appreciated their professionalism, good humor and excellent taste in radio stations while they worked to make the building a showstopper. I can’t tell you how many people have commented on the appearance of the Brave Law Center offices. They’re blown away by its modernity, curving walls, intriguing light fixtures and welcoming atmosphere. Much of that is due to the efforts of your team and we always tell those who ask that we recommend C.T. Gabbert Construction for their own remodeling needs.

Sara and Jason Netzley, Brave Law

I wish to express my appreciation to you and the crew who worked on my bathroom/shower project. The precise measuring ordering, shipping, etc facilitated the timely completion. Steve was always prompt, courteous and kept me informed on progress. The working and surrounding area were kept clean every day. The final day he even moved a large dining table and hung a large picture on the wall above it. As a senior citizen, this will greatly aid my remaining time in my own home. Plus my bathroom is beautiful.

Eleanor Roth

We want to wish you all a Merry Christmas! We’d also like to thank you again for building our deck and remodeling our kitchen nook. We love the French doors!

Mary and John Venzon (West Peoria)

Thanks to all for the great work. It is nice to know we won’t leak when it rains now and our ceiling looks great! We love working with you all and always recommend you
