Find out what our clients and business partners have to say about us!

As the client's designer on several of John's projects I have been very impressed with his ability to bring a project from conception to completion in a timely manner and in budget. His subcontractors have a great deal of respect for him and his leadership on a project always produces high quality work with attention to the small details that are often overlooked by other builders. John knows how to work with clients and makes them feel confident and knowledgeable with the process and decisions being made every step of the way. I HIGHLY recommend Edinburgh Custom Homes to anyone looking to build or remodel.

Dear John:

We have been in our new home almost a year now, and I want to let you know that you have been truly outstanding throughout all aspects of our home construction, purchase and warranty/post-closing process. As you know, we signed a contract to purchase our home during construction. From day one, you have been (a) extremely detailed, careful and thorough; (b) incredibly prompt; (c) fair (looking out for our interests, even to the expense of your company); and (d) unwaveringly pleasant. You are truly a joy to work with. Most importantly, you have built us a beautiful home.

John, I would be very happy and honored to recommend you to anyone interested in constructing a home, as they would be extremely fortunate to have you in charge of their home construction.

"Having our home built by Edinburgh Custom Homes was one of the best decisions we ever made. First and foremost, John Gilley is a competent builder who builds a quality home. Second he is an organized businessman. His organizational and probelm solving skills are beyond the ordinary. John is a personable, approachable person who relieves the stress of buying and maintaining a new home.

The entire process was easy and we highly recommedn his homes. The end product was an excellent home that we have thoroughly enjoyed since moving in. The quality construction and attention to detail exceeded our expectations, and I can recommend Edinburgh Custom Homes to anyone looking for a well bulit custom home from a professional company, Kudos to Edinburgh Custom Homes."

I contracted John to help build my home which I moved into last month. Many friends warned me against building a home, however, I proceeded despite these warnings. The project was smoother than expected with only very minor surprises, all of which were dealt with expertly by John. He adhered strictly to the budget, and almost all overages where due to choices/changes on my part. He managed the sub-contractors deftly, and only involved me if necessary or at my request. He was always respectful of my ideas and concerns. He was organized and willing to discuss any detail I wanted to address. John was always available in person or by phone, and often at the site when i stopped by unannounced. The build time line was addressed up front and adhered to, in fact, I moved in earlier than projected. I have and will continue to recommend John to anyone who is interested in building or renovating their home.

John Gilley at Edinburgh performed our remodel. His approach to project scope and costing was spot on. In addition to our wallet he had our personal well being at interest as we lived in the house without a kitchen and down to 1 bathroom for 5 months. 

Once completed with the inside, we used Edinburgh for an exterior renovation. The best compliment we received was from our neighbors that had looked at the same facad for over 20 years and were WOWED by the transformation.
