Gilligan Contracting

Gilligan Carpentry LLC was started in 2002, during the recession of the early 2000’s, with $600 worth of credit at Home Depot, some basic tools, and a desire to have the schedule flexibility that I needed to complete my college degree. I had worked previously in the construction industry for Toll Brothers and for a Toll Brothers subcontractor. I found that I liked the challenge of building things and solving construction problems. My friend Thomas Hall and I started Gilligan Carpentry as a handyman/light carpentry and pressure washing business.

We display two types of written homeowner feedback on GuildQuality member profile pages: Comments and Reviews.


In response to our customer satisfaction surveys, homeowners share lots of comments about construction quality, communication, or any other question asked in the survey. Guildmembers can selectively publish these comments here on their profile page.


Reviews are different than comments. These are star ratings that homeowners ask us to publish, and they come with a written description of the type of experience they had working with their contractor. We publish all of the reviews we receive: positive and negative alike.
