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!

We can’t tell you enough of how much we appreciate the great work that has been done at our house so far. The craftsmanship is amazing. Jeff always communicates with one or both of us what they will be doing. They all clean up after they completed the job. We appreciated that.

Jim and Margo

We want to thank you for the beautiful flowers and great tasting wine you brought to our house when we had lunch. I can’t tell you enough times the quality of work that has been done so far in our home. Just Loving the new windows and new patio door gives our house a clean look. Jeff has done a fabulous job on my bathroom. It is so gorgeous and I won’t want to get it dirty!

Jim and Margo K. (Peoria)

I want to thank everyone for the wonderful job they did remodeling my bathroom. George was prompt, considerate, and always cleaned up at the end of the day. Caroline would call to ask about the progress. The finished product is beautiful and even better than I envisioned. I am happy to recommend your customer friendly company to everyone!

Denise McCormack (Peoria)

We are so very pleased with our Master Bathroom Remodel. Each day I am thrilled with something more: we love the Onyx shower design and colors of sand and gray and how it all matches the flooring so well. The vanity/sink, fixtures, and wood & design are all exceptional and just to my liking of simple and country traditional. Steve did an outstanding job. He was very personable, easy to get along with, and meticulous in cleaning each day. I must admit the dust was tough to handle at times, but your workers did all possible to maintain it during the remodeling process.

Janice and Dave Kinsinger

This is a note to thank all of you for the wonderful new updated kitchen you build for us. We truly enjoyed working with each of you. From planning to design to installation you were friendly, supportive and very professional in everything you did for us. Caroline, you guided us through the planning process and showed us possibilities for our new kitchen that we had not thought of. The kitchen you designed is both beautiful and highly functional. We love the counter space and open look of the new design. Your coordination of all the details and scheduling made the project flow smoothly and efficiently. Jeff your expertise, craftsmanship, and passion for getting every aspect of the installation done exactly right have given us a kitchen that will look good and function well for years to come while at the same time greatly enhancing the value of our home. Chuck, this is the second time we have hired CT Gabbert Remodeling, the first time being almost eighteen years ago when we moved into this house. At that time, your company remodeled our bathrooms. Eighteen years later, the bathrooms still look great, so when we needed an update of our kitchen, we thought of Gabbert Remodeling and we are glad we did. To all of you, it has been a pleasure to be your customer. We appreciated your professionalism as well as the friendly supportive and patient way you dealt with us as customers. If you ever need a reference, we will be happy to give the Gabbert Team an enthusiastic thumbs up!

I wanted a carriage door, I liked the look, I liked the fact that it would be customized and liked that it would give a sense of newness and “now” to the remodel of our basement room. No less that three contractors said it couldn’t be done … and then I remembered “If you can think of it… we can do it” and I called Gabbert Construction. From start to finish the remodel was handled in a professional and friendly manner. The ideas were refreshing, the crew worked tirelessly, professionally, and with great attention to even the smallest detail, and the clean up is meticulous. Each evening, we would check out the accomplishments of the day and be in awe of the transformation that was taking place before our eyes. Of course, the bottom time is the finished product, and both my husband and I agree that it is beyond our expectations. In fact, we are so pleased that not only will we consider C.T Gabbert again, we are consulting with him on another project at this time. Thank you Chuck and company, you have more than lived up to your slogan.

Steve and Vicki Draksler (Peoria)

Tell everyone “THANKS”! for the hard work on remodeling our family room. It looks great and we’ll enjoy it for years to come. Thanks.

Eric and Janice Branch (Peoria)

The Lead Carpenter impressed us as a meticulous craftsman, attentive to the details of grain and fit, protective of existing some and conscientious as to daily clean-up.

Marilyn and John Leyland (East Peoria)

John and I are very pleased with our new deck and french doors. Joe listened to us, incorporated his ideas, and make it exactly what we wanted. We can’t say enough about the entire Gabbert’s team. The crew were very friendly, professional, and treated our home as it was their own. The attention to details was impressive. While it took longer than we expected to complete the job, it was well worth the wait and would recommend Chuck and his team to anyone who desires a top quality job! Thank you for your outstanding work.

John and Mary Venzon (West Peoria)

Thank you and your crew for our newly remodeled bathroom. You and your team impressed us throughout the process. Special thanks to Caroline for her fantastic assistance on design, she hit it out of the park on every decision. We were also happy with the construction crew. They were industrious and talented and they always showed up when they said they would be there… We are pleased with the results. In summary, you delivered as promised in every phase. You sent a big team to start the project so we were in a construction mess a minimal time. As you say, we had an idea and you were able to improve it and make it happen. Thanks and good luck in your future endeavors.

We are writing to tell you how happy we are with our new Corian countertop. It has dramatically improved the look of our kitchen, and it’s so easy to use and clean up after cooking. We also wanted you to know what a pleasure it was dealing with you and all of your employees. Office and Showroom Manager Caroline Jabson was very patient in helping us select the perfect Corian color. Although we had initially selected a different color, Caroline gave us excellent advice on why the color was not practical and showed us another color which was ultimately installed in our kitchen. I had not even noticed the other color. And Caroline was absolutely right! It goes so well with our tile backsplash, cabinets, and our wood floor. We also appreciated Caroline’s excellent follow-through, timely communications by phone and email, and visits to our home during and after the countertop installation. She is a great asset to your organization. In addition, we appreciated how the removal of the old countertop and installation of the new countertop were completed so efficiently. By the end of the second day, we had a fully functioning kitchen! All the workers were on time, were very professional, worked diligently and did excellent work. It was a pleasure doing business with you and your company, Chuck. We would not hesitate to recommend you to our friends, and we will contact you again if we need further work done on our house.

Walter & Alice Winget (Peoria)

We just wanted to take time to let you know how much we appreciated doing business with you and most of all with Caroline Jabson. Caroline is a very warm and informative person, she showed and gave of herself and her talents more than we expected. You should be very proud to have her as your office manager. She showed that she cares about people and great concern for being a professional employee for your company. We would also like you to know that your workers Pat and Benny were cooperative, punctual, and did an excellent job on our kitchen remodeling project. We would have no problem having them do any future work in our home. Please let them know that we are well satisfied with their work.

Ed and Ella Herndon (Peoria, IL)

Chuck, I wanted to write you a quick note to say how pleased I am with the new pocket door and all it involved. Your staff Randy & Brody did great work. They were very professional, courteous, made sure I understood all they were doing and answered any questions patiently. In the past, your company has replaced a closet, surrounding wall, and basement stairs. I’ve always had quality work and look forward to the next project.

Sharon O. (Peoria)

Dear Chuck and Caroline, Thanks to all of you for my new bathroom! I love everything about it from all the extra cabinet space to my new Whirlpool tub. You took an outdated bathroom and transformed it into a beautiful and functional room. The heated floor is quite a treat, especially now that there’s a chill in the air. The Whirlpool tub is so nice after a long day. The grandkids think it’s loads of fun when they visit. The Onyx countertops and Onyx surrounding the tub is very pretty also. Our bathroom was somewhat narrow, but your reduced depth cabinetry allowed us to not only to have more of the cabinet space we wanted but also opened up the room to make it seem wider. Your employees were always so pleasant and respectful when they were in our home and were attentive to any questions we had. They ended up feeling like family friends. In all, thanks for the bathroom I’ve always dreamed of…it’s now a reality!

Bruce & Chris Adler (Washington)

Chuck, Caroline, and all, Thanks so much for the beautiful job you did on our bathroom. I love all the updates and the attention to detail. The guys always left the house clean each night and even when there were problems, you went out of your way to make everything right. A special thanks to Caroline for the sympathetic ear, to Chuck for helping me with all the decisions, and to the guys for their professional job and respectful attitude. Thanks!

Wendy & Mike B. (Washington)

I wanted to thank you for choosing Randy to be the lead carpenter on my porch remodel. His knowledge and professionalism on the job was a sign to behold as was his friendliness and personable manner. He can do it all so give that man a raise. Also, Randy Johnson went above and beyond laying the foundation in between raindrops, getting it done in one day. I didn’t talk much with him because I don’t like getting wet but give him a raise too.

David M. (Peoria)

Dear Chuck, Just wanted to thank you for a wonderful remodel. It turned out perfect, like the vision we had in our heads. Also to tell you that your crew of Pat and Benny were very much appreciated. Both are hard workers and easy to have in our home. Special kudos to Pat, whose craftsmanship is impeccable. Nothing was left unfinished. He did a fantastic job. The plumbers and electricians work was top notch and they too were a pleasure. Thank you, Chuck, for getting this done for us. Not knowing what is ahead with Tom’s health, we do know he will have easy access in the bathroom. Please thank Caroline for us also. I know she had a hand in helping to get this done. Hope you heal well and fast from your accident. Thank you!!

Tom & Rhonda L. (Pekin)

Hi Chuck, Just a little shout-out to Pat, Ben, & Caroline for the great job on our kitchen remodel. We have received so many compliments and our guests have been so impressed with the quality of the craftsmanship that I’m compelled to encourage you to give generous bonuses for all! :-). Once again, many thanks for a job well done and rest assured we will share who was responsible for the fine work with all who admire a job well done.

Jeff & Mary Ann Nelson (Hanna City)

Dear Gabbert, Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say how pleased I am with my new tub and wall surround. Caroline is an awesome person and the greatest help around. Pat and Mitch were so professional and did a terrific job. They were on time, worked hard and cleaned everything up. Thank you for such a great job.

Rosemary Polites (East Peoria)

Chuck & Team: Just wanted to write a note of great appreciation for the work on the kitchen/dining room and deck stairs. Jeff and Randy did excellent work, and Deb and I are enjoying their craftsmanship daily! Again, thanks for making it possible to “go where others had told us wasn’t possible or prudent” with the two projects. After nearly 8 years in this house, we are really liking it to full measure of satisfaction. (See photos from this project in the Photo Gallery under Kitchens, A Fresh Kitchen and Decks, and Porches, A Scenic Overlook.)
