Shane is outstanding A++.  Great communication – sincere, dedicated, always welcome here.  Shane jumped on issues and had them fixed as quickly as possible.

Unique, out of the box design ideas that appear seamless to the construction project when completed. Attention to detail is one of Nathan’s many gifts, alongside his quality of work.  There was never really any down time. From start to finish, they came, they worked, cleaned up and came back again until it was completed. Very efficient.

Gabor comes highly recommended by the Perkins’ family.  Your services renewed our home…I cannot wait to share it.

Sue Perkins


We remodeled a house that is almost 90 years old. They did a wonderful job with very innovative ideas and were easy to communicate with. They understood our vision for the space and made it happen.

I’d like to comment specifically about the excellent job Shane Johnson did managing our project. Shane always provided timely communication about the project…he was terrific, and quite an asset of your organization.

The kitchen truly is a beautiful place, surpassing my expectations. A simple thank you hardly seems adequate for all that you put into this project and also sacrificed — vacation time — to see it working before Thanksgiving. It has once again been a pleasure to work with Gabor Design Build especially with you at the helm. Your dedication to the many aspects of a remodel is greatly appreciated, and that you put up with us — always with a smile — is beyond measure! Thank you for everything you did in making this kitchen a joy for me to be in.

Melanie Nadar

The whole project from start to finish was a very positive and pleasant experience.  We were a little nervous about having the remodeling of both bathrooms at the same time but it turned into a very good experience with very little, if any, negative experiences. A wonderful group of contractors and a great project manager (Shane).

Kyle and Doug Johnson


Overall, our experience with Gabor was a very good one.  Tara was easy to work with.  She gave us great designs and was very helpful and knowledgeable about picking out materials.

Ted and Beth Durant

I really loved the early time arrivals. Kind and respectful. Professional and great craftsmanship. Thank you for all of that. It was the first time that we felt taken care of by a contractor in a while.  Thank you!

Kathy & Tom Osowski


The Gabor team takes very good care of their clients. We have been very happy with their quality of work and attention to detail. They address the surprises problems a remodel can bring till the problem is resolved. Nathan was helpful in walking us through the steps and answering all the questions and dilemma’s which come with remodeling–making what could be a overwhelming experience – a smooth one.

GDB was more communicative than previous organizations we have worked with.  Nathan was always looking to please.  He was straightforward.  He was trustworthy and ethical.  Tina was extremely helpful.  She was reliable.

Overall, would you rate your experience with GDB as better than/worse than or about the same as your experience with another contractor?

Shane was great about keeping us informed with the progress.

Neal and Barb Borkenhagen


Tara and Shane were great to work with!  Shane’s attention to customer service and satisfaction is commendable!

John and Bunny Bauernfeind


We appreciated the willingness to modify and adapt as needs changed and developed. We also appreciated the rapid response time to requests and modifications. Subcontractors were all approachable and respectful of person, place and dog.

Mark Small

Our project went very well. Nathan runs an efficient schedule and is very easy to deal with. Someone was here working every day, often times, more than one sub contractor. He is very knowledgeable, capable and pays excellent attention to detail leaving you at ease knowing that things will be taken care of and done right. If you aren’t thrilled about something, he will fix it. From his design ideas, to accommodating our daily living needs, his hands on skills across the various trades and his resourcefulness to keep the project on budget all make it difficult for us to consider using anyone else in the future.

Gabor Design Build is EXCELLENT to work with. From the first stages of bidding through the completion of the project, Gabor Design Build was extremely professional, responsive, very thorough with sub contractors, very creative from a design and working with issues older homes can sometimes impose, and remained on time and within budget. Most importantly, Gabor does excellent work and has a very high standard of craftsmanship and quality. I have worked with many contractors over the years, and Gabor has truly been the best experience I have had.
