Full Bathroom Installation/Basement Mr. & Mrs. Walter LynchThere are so many reasons that my husband and I are so grateful and feel very blessed to have found Gary & Company Contracting.For starters, one month prior to contacting Gary, I had signed a contract with another contractor. Big mistake! But before I get into why this was so. I’d like to point out a few things that could be a teachable moment for those who are considering hiring a contractor or handyman to do work in or around their home. Always make sure that the person you hire is a licensed contractor, preferably someone that can do it all. If this is not the case, and they have others working for them.Make sure that the person or persons that they bring to your home are licensed or if not, at least will be under the instructions of the licensed contractor. Basically allowing for someone with credentials to be held accountable for any wrong doing.Make sure you have their information such as license number, address, phone number along with pictures of previous work that they have completed. Make sure the pictures that they show you are pictures of what you are considering hiring them for.When giving down payments and second payments, make sure that the project is moving along. If you and the contractor agree that they will buy the supplies, make sure you are provided with receipts and supplies are brought to your home prior to project starting. All of this I learned from Gary after the first contractor took our money, came to our home a few times only to not complete the project. He embezzled a substantial amount of money from us which left us devastated He left our basement floor tore up and nothing was ever installed. All this brings me to what Gary did for us. I reached out to him in the morning, that afternoon he was at my door. He sat down with me and was extremely understanding.Not only did he listen, but throughout me telling him about our ordeal, not once did he make me feel like a fool for trusting this other person. It was at this point that Gary walked me through the proper steps to take whenInterviewing a contractor. All the things to look for and things that should be a red flag. That same day he did an assessment, called and emailed within a couple of days with a proposal that was fair and very reasonable. Gary and his team started within two days, but prior to, he bought all of the supplies from Home Depot, brought them to our home, producing all of the receipts. I would say the whole project didn’t take over two and a half weeks. This was a full bathroom, not a powder room. Gary and his employees were extremely professional but in a lighthearted way , personable but not intrusive. Always courteous and all respected our home each and every time they entered and would leave. Needless to say, my hubby and I are so happy with our beautiful bathroom! We have gotten so many compliments from both family and friends. My lasting words and advice that I would leave to any home owner looking to remodel or upgrade their property, always follow your gut. if it sounds too good to be true, and you don’t get a good vibe, no license, limited information, no references or reviews to read, escort them to the door.

Gary just installed 3 security doors and a closet door for me. I callled on a Monday afternoon, he came by that evening to take the measurements, scheduled to meet me at Home Depot to help me choose the right doors, picked up the doors on Saturday and stayed until the job was done. I'm very satisfied. I thought he was professional, polite , dillegent and honest. It's important to find a contractor you can trust and if that's what you are looking for, I recommend Gary.
