"These gentleman are truly gifted at their trade, and the work they've done for me speaks for itself. They are both truly genuine individuals with the highest standards imaginable. I'm a law school student still, and I can't wait for the day when I buy my dream home and let this fantastic company transform each aspect of my house into a work of art. These men have passion and vision, and an impeccable work ethic. They deserve the utmost trust and respect when it comes to anything remodeling/construction related." -Svickery
"Gary single-handedly gave me a new kitchen, including a new ceiling, in five days. He worked like crazy to make sure I was inconvenienced as little as possible. I love my beautiful new kitchen!" -Sabentle
"Gary and his staff are professional and excellent at what they do. I would highly recommend them for any home repairs needed!" -Stephanie Huxter
"(Gary) laid all my tile in both bathrooms which included showers, floor, tub surround and closets. The color, design and overall look came out better than I expected. These guys came highly recommended and did an amazing job. Their hard work, professionalism and great prices is why I will use them again for all my household projects. Great job and Thanks again. A top notch crew!" -gmctigue
"Gary did numerous projects for me while I was leading the production team at a non-profit organization that served an average of one thousand people every week. He built multiple sets and multiple set pieces over the period of 18 months or before I resigned from my position. Among the literally hundreds of projects some that stand out were a 3' x 4' lightbox made appx 3' high, a 8' x 4'x 4' large multi drawer storage unit on casters, two 16' x 20' rolling walls, four 8' stain glass windows (made of foam), and a round 20' diameter rotating stage on casters. Materials were primarily wood except the foam windows.
Gary performed admirably in both the planning stages and the actual building, exceeding project expectations and deadlines every single time. He is a master craftsman in whatever he does, uses quality materials and will go the extra mile without being asked to make sure everything is just right. Moreover, he was a joy to work with. I can't recommend him highly enough, he is A+ all the way."
A personal letter from one of our biggest fans:
From: Rick & Karen Orlandoni
To: Gary Fiyalko
Dear Sir or Madame,
I am writing to you on behalf of Gary Fiyalko. I had the pleasure of meeting Gary in September of 2007. My daughter happened to be a Make a Wish candidate. Through Gary’s church, he had heard about her and our situation and wanted to help. The wish was to create a “big kid’s basement filled with fun games for big kids and a theater.”
Our basement was not even finished and Make a Wish would only be able to provide help with the finishing or the stocking of a finished basement. Hearing our plight, Gary scheduled a time to come over to meet with us. We were impressed immediately with meeting Gary!
He was knowledgeable about layout, design and planning so that we could use her space most effectively. He brought a book containing projects he had done in the past so that we would see his work. He helped in devising a list of materials we would need to cover the endeavor. Then, he set up all the laborers to get started on making her wish a reality. Gary’s devotion to this project touched us immensely!
There were times he would be here after work 5 evenings per week, just to do what he could to complete the project in a timely manner. The craftsmanship of his work showed the time and effort he took on making sure all things done were done to perfection; the pride he took in the job that he was VOLUNTEERING for!
He led an entire team of workers, bringing in electricians, ceiling hangers, a tile guy and even a heating and plumbing person. These were all people that we did not know, but Gary sent them to us, in order to make the wish of an 11 year old a reality! And, he did all the jobs with them; helping with the ceiling, electrical, drywall, taping, mudding, baseboards, and painting. He even helped set up the equipment/toys upon completion. It is hard to express in writing the feelings I have for Gary, and his wife Stacey, who so graciously donated so much time, talent, skill and know-how to our family, who they did not even know prior. My daughter refers to him as “the man who changed her life,” and I know he always will be.
He gave her a place to go to forget her medical situation and be a kid; a place to hang out with friends, yet be in the comfort of her own home in case of a change in her condition; a place that is a real dream-come-true. And, it is BEAUTIFUL! He did a top-notch job at each and every level of the project! If you have an opportunity to have Gary come aboard on your team of employees, I can speak for not only work ethics, skill, talent, creativity, openness to suggestions, leadership, and pleasantness to be around, I can speak to you about the man.
Gary is one of the finest I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. You will certainly benefit from
what Gary can bring on board in your work environment, as will your other employees. He is one of the best out there! Please feel free to contact me with any comments or questions. I certainly appreciate your time in reading this.
