Stephen C. Gidley - GMB, CAPS, CGP, CGB, CGR, CPRC, CR.
President & CEO

"Ever since the mid 1970’s we have relied on you and your firm to provide us with your expertise in construction repairs, roofing and painting...Your workmanship, timely service and work ethic are greatly appreciated as we know from over (30) years of being one of your satisfied clients we can always count on Steve Gidley’s crews to solve our different home repair and home improvement needs."
"It was easy and efficient from our first contact with your firm, through Service Magic, through the estimating, contracting, permitting and installation and clean up you met or exceeded our very high expectations."
"Over the past 15 years we have chosen to contract with your company for a variety of projects concerning the maintenance and upkeep of our house. These have included carpentry, painting and roofing of both the main house and garage...Bottom line is that we have been highly satisfied with each of the projects we have contracted and strongly recommend you and your organization"
"Now that I have had time to adjust to my remodeled home I just wanted you to know what a great job your firm did completing on time and on budget my whole house remodeling project...Complete with three new beautiful bathrooms, a functional playroom/finished basement for the kids, new front staircase, two bay windows and numerous other amenities your expert crew did a super job marrying the old with the new in a seamless way. The final touches of the new roof and floor refinishing with the interior/exterior paint job completed the renovation project to my total satisfaction...."I highly recommend you and your entire crew to anyone in the need of a reliable and honest general contractor."
"After the finishing of your last round of work on our 1914 vintage house, we thought we should thank you for thirteen years of providing us with excellent professional service...Starting in 1995 when you did an outstanding job of stripping the exterior of our house of decades worth of old lead paint and through the next thirteen years of work on both the exterior and interior of our home, your crews have always displayed real professional expertise in carrying out the required work. They were unfailingly courteous and caring. Whenever we expressed a concern, it was taken care of immediately and thoroughly."
"Over the last 18 years, we’ve completed eight projects with you ranging from replacing the exterior siding on our home to remodeling our three bathrooms including skylights, custom cabinetry and finishes, and oversized marble shower; replacing doors and hardware throughout our home; building and installing drawers, counter tops and bookcases in our living room; finishing a basement room including the subflooring, flooring, electrical work, walls and painting; handling several painting jobs inside and outside our home; and replacing the roof two years ago. On these projects you and your team have delivered exceptional results each time. We think you and your organization are in a class by yourselves!!"
"This is a belated formal thanks for all the work that you have performed for us in substantially refurbishing our home, inside and outside, in Greenwich. As you know, some of the tasks were quite challenging, particularly the chimney repair, and, frankly, you were the first person that ever found those challenges both interesting and solvable. It is to your great credit that your estimates were accurate, your workmen were polite, efficient and timely; and that you continually were interested in getting the job done right, on time, and with the minimum disruption"
"I have used Steve Gidley’s contracting firm, Stephen C. Gidley, Inc., and its predecessor for over 30 years. At various times in recent years he has painted the outside and most of the inside of my house, put on a new roof and this past summer, put on a new chimney. Most of these projects were undertaken while my family and I were away. In short, I trust him. I have found Steve to be dependable and honest and consequently I turn to him when any serious problem in my home arises and plan to in the future. He plans the work carefully, finishes on time and cleans the site well. I am well satisfied.
"This is in reference to the roofing project contracted by St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Riverside to Stephen C. Gidley, Inc. and Associated Building Contractors. We are very pleased at the timely completion of the roofing project as well as the conduct of the whole process, from getting the permit to the final clean-up and inspection. The quality of work was exemplary. We are very happy with the results and highly recommend this company."
"When we ran into many serious post construction project problems: nine roof leaks, faulty construction, sloppy and incomplete construction… only to name a few items…after our two year whole house renovation debacle we turned in desperation to your firm for help after a medical colleague and close friend highly recommended you as the best...Now nearly one and a half years later, our originally botched construction project is totally repaired and completed to our full satisfaction thanks to your steadfast and continued efforts to unearth the myriad of construction faults and defects we were faced with from our previous builder... In an industry fraught with horror stories such as ours, you stand out amongst your colleagues as an excellent builder who can be implicitly trusted to deliver the highest quality of workmanship standards available."
"A few years ago a colleague of mine in the medical profession recommended your firm to repair and maintain my cedar roof. I was very pleased with your expertise in this field and gave you the job which your firm completed to my full satisfaction... Most recently I had the occasion to use your services to paint my home’s exterior and perform various carpentry repairs. Again, my decision to hire you has been rewarding with both expert skill and attention to detail that your firm has become known for."
"This letter is to commend you and your roofers for the fine job your firm completed repairing the slate roof at the Stamford Museum and Nature Center this summer... Thank you for the excellent quality workmanship. Just over a quarter century ago you assisted us with roof repairs and site work, and as Philip Novak, the assistant director at that time said about your firm in his letter to you in 1979:" "I have no hesitation in recommending your firm to others."
"Mr. Gidley worked with me to create an estimate that was within our budget. The pricing accurately reflected the final cost of the project, except where my wife and I added additional work... Mr. Gidley provided me with his personal cell phone number and was always accessible during the job. He visited the worksite promptly whenever I requested it, and always helpful in resolving whatever problems arose... His crews came promptly, when they were supposed to come, and continued working nonstop until the job was completed. I mention this because other contractors I have dealt with disappeared for weeks or even months during a job, leaving the work half completed. Mr. Gidley’s workers were polite, professional and skillful."
"From the comprehensive initial quotation through the maintenance of work corresponding to the calendar you established at the outset and the quality of the workmen you provided. Lynn and I were very impressed. In an era when contractors quote only on what you are asking for, show up or don’t yours has been an exceptional experience in that your suggestions, based upon your experience, made us feel we were in capable hands from the very beginning... Interestingly enough, I called your company because we had been so satisfied when we had a successful remodeling project done by your company in 1981 that I had immediate recognition when I saw your name in the Yellow Pages when I began to look for roofing contractors. The convenience of having you guide us through that project as well as the replacement of a few damaged windows made us very comfortable."
"Contractors like yourself, who have established a cooperative affiliation with this office serve to help create a secure marketplace in which the citizens of Connecticut can conduct business transactions with peace of mind"
"We appreciate the high value we received from you and Stephen C. Gidley, Inc. & Associated Building Contractors. I understand more fully and personally now how you won the 1996 Award of Excellence from the Better Business Bureau in Wallingford, Connecticut. You are a credit to your industry and to the community in maintaining the highest ethical relationship between your firm and your customers"
"We found him honest, professional, reliable, ethical…we found his firm to have consistently high ethics, even putting ethics ahead of profit. We strongly recommend that your organization consider granting this firm your national award this year."
"On business, Stephen C. Gidley, Inc. has been awarded numerous competitive bids for various construction projects for the Town of Darien. The latest was the rehabilitation and reconstruction of our Fire Drill tower. This and the other work they have done for our town has been completed with the dollars they bid and completed on time. Their dedication and integrity serve as a model for others in their field."
"What a breath of fresh air it was to read all the glowing reviews of Mr. Gidley and his organization. They have the highest ethical standards, and they are solidly committed to upholding their mission statement. In reviewing the materials they are using to enter the Better Business Bureau's 2000 National Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics, I was impressed by his efforts to run an upstanding and ethical business."
"On January 5, 2000, I presented Stephen C. Gidley with HBRA's 1999 Remodeler of the Year Award. The three hundred member HBRA bestowed this honor on Mr. Gidley in acknowledgement of his company's long standing reputation for honest and fair business practices; exceptionally high ethical standards, and quality remodeling work."
"The distinguished 32 year record of Stephen C. Gidley, Inc., and more specifically, the company's work with the State of Connecticut in resolving consumer complaints against other contractors, has raised the standard of the remodeling profession in Connecticut."
