Doug and his team did an excellent job on a full renovation of my bathroom, including a build out of a walk in shower. Two plus years later it still looks brand new.

After hearing plenty of renovation nightmare stories in the city, it was great to have some one as experienced and trustworthy as Doug running the show. He was always reachable throughout the project and was sure to communicate progress, timing, next steps, etc. as work moved along.

Highly recommend!

Doug is the best! Renovating a co-op in NYC is extremely stressful, between the board approval process and all of the rules-- having a dependable, respectful and trustworthy contractor gives you peace of mind.

Doug was extremely patient and worked with us for many months as we navigated the co-op approval process and layered on additional requirements. He and his team kept our apartment safe and clean through the kitchen renovation, refinishing our floors, electrical upgrades, etc. He was extremely responsive whether it be by text, call or email.

We love our kitchen and space and would 100% recommend Doug to anyone undertaking a renovation project in NYC!

Doug and his crew gutted my entire apartment from top to bottom recently. They removed a loft and did entirely new floors, ceilings, kitchen, lights, bathroom, etc. In short, the results were fantastic. I am thrilled with how things turned out. Doug is creative and had great vision and recommendations. He was responsive and communicative the whole time (which helps, because renovations can be extremely stressful), and he and his crew were extremely gracious, respectful, and attentive to detail, from beginning to end. They complied with all building rules and finished the job on time. I would absolutely recommend Doug again and will use him for any future projects.

Doug and his team gut renovated my 1BR kitchen and bathroom in Manhattan 7 months ago. He did excellent work, stayed on schedule, and on budget (which was middle of the road for pricing). More importantly, he was an exceptional communicator the entire team and a real pleasure to work with. He also transferred his tile discounts to me.

Can't say enough good things and have referred him to others.

Doug and his team renovated our one bedroom apartment earlier this year including a gut reno on the bathroom and kitchen. Doug was fantastic to work with and made the process a lot less painful than it could have been! His prices are reasonable for Manhattan and his team worked efficiently to complete our project on schedule. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to others and will certainly use him again in the future.

Entire process was simple. Doug and his team are knowledgeable and skilled. Having worked in home renovation, I had high hopes and they were all met. Will have Doug do future work I am unable to do. A+

Doug and his team of friendly contractors are really amazing. He is incredibly friendly, professional and creative and will help you come up with unique solutions to meet your needs. He will walk you through all options, is very transparent about costs, and sticks to the budget. His team is careful, friendly and hard working. Really a pleasure to work with.

DGIR replaced our closet and did a builtin for us in our SoHo loft. Really incredible, modern, beautiful work. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a creative, high quality work.

We have used Doug and his team twice for pretty major renovations. On both occasions his pricing was very competitive and Doug was creative working with our budget to meet our design needs. He is fair and honest and his team is trustworthy. Doug's team moved several walls, built closets, installed wood floors, and did a bunch of electrical for us. I was very impressed with the walls and closets, in particular. Doug has a big team and we had some quality issues with some of the guys; however, Doug will redo anything that is not to your satisfaction. You just have to stay on top of the work - that is the trade off: you get a great price but need to do a bit of the project management, shopping, etc, yourself. Totally worth it in my mind!

We would use Doug again and recommend him highly to anyone on a budget. Our apartment looks fantastic and we owe it all to Doug.

I recently had two apartments combined by Doug's company. He was professional and attentive throughout the process. He always arrived when he said he would, sent a proposal in a timely fashion, and did the work quickly and efficiently. This was a fairly basic job, no fancy flourishes, but the quality was decent and above all affordable. Also, a very nice, down to earth guy.

As a first time homeowner, I was wary of the renovation process, having heard (like everyone else) a number of contracting horror stories. I'm very glad to have had Doug Gibson as my first contracting experience, as it couldn't have gone smoother. He did a full renovation of my bathroom and kitchen, skim coated my walls and built a closet. I'm very satisfied with the work, which was done on schedule and at budget. He has been responsive, professional, trustworthy and likable - I have no idea what happened with the woman who gave the one star review, but the person she describes is the opposite of my experience. Doug's crew worked hard, cleaned up after themselves, and even helped with extra tasks during my apartment setup at no extra charge. My parents came to visit and even my hard-to-please mom was pleased with the results. Based on my own experience, I would absolutely recommend Doug.

- Carina L.

We have used Douglas Gibson on numerous occasions and are very satisfied customers. He has done work on our kitchen and bath. He is highly skilled,very professional and dependable. I work in real estate and I'm always asked for names of contractors from my clients -I never hesitate to recommend Doug. Doug is extremely likable, easy to talk to, creative and trustworthy. His jobs were done on schedule and came in at budget. You can not ask for more in a contractor. I know you will be happy with the work he does.

- Rebecca P.

Doug and team took the ambitious vision of a novice new homeowner, and not only brought it to life, but enhanced it with useful advice and recommendations. In researching contractors, it seemed like the general consensus is to leave any expectations for honesty and trustworthiness on the sidelines. But those qualities define Doug's approach. I didn't really know what to expect or what I was getting myself into by taking on a project of this scope as a first-timer, but receiving the support and professionalism from Doug and his crew was invaluable. The work is great, as is the service, and the prices are competitive, so stop reading this dissertation, and call Doug to start the transformation you're looking for in your home. You won't be disappointed, and if you've had a bad remodeling experience in the past, I'm confident your faith will be restored.

Douglas renovated my Kitchen in 1996. With his help, We envisioned an open kitchen concept that was rarely seen then. Now, its everywhere! In 2003 I hired him again to install an antique marble mantle piece with 2 classic custom bookcases on either side. In 2005, we once again called on Doug to help update and repair our kitchen after receiving some minor water damage due to a flood from an upstairs neighbor. Now, that I am in Real Estate Sales Douglas is the first one we call when someone is looking to renovate their home. We are always pleased with his work, insight, talent and professionalism.

Last summer I decided to finally do that kitchen renovation I've always wanted in my upper east side small one bedroom apartment. No one I knew was able to recommend anyone, so I did an Internet search...and got VERY lucky finding Doug. He did such an amazing job with my kitchen, that this summer I had him back to do my bathroom gut renovation. Small bathroom....BIG JOB!!!

Not only is Doug a skilled craftsman who takes pride in his work, he makes valuable suggestions and is equally adept at dealing with all the other issues that accompany a renovation; dealing with co-op, scheduling other contractors and trouble-shooting any snafus that come along.

I just love my new kitchen and bathroom!! And I thoroughly intend to hire Doug again when I purchase the mansion in Greenwich ; )

Douglas Gibson Interior Renovations just recently finished my kitchen remodel. I absolutely love my kitchen. Doug and his team did beautiful work. Doug brings all of his experience and trained eye to the job. He was extremely helpful in helping me make all of my aesthetic choices, and making sure I understood exactly what was going to happen and why. He was very inolved with the entire planning process, which I understand from the designer is above and beyond what most contractors do. They also completely redid my living room walls and ceiling after part of my ceiling fell due to years of adding layers of paint and plaster in my pre-war building apartment finally proved too much. The walls and ceiling are beautiful, and the paint color choices he made were perfrct to my vision. The work was done on budget and everything is beautiful. I highly recommend Doug and his team.

Doug Gibson and his team are, in one word, phenomenal. As a first-time homeowner (and renovator), I had heard many horror stories (missed deadlines, exceeded budgets, absent workers, etc.), and so I did my due diligence before signing a contract. Let me save you some of that time: Doug is the best there is. He and his team transformed my home over the course of three months, gutting the kitchen and bathroom, tearing down walls, adding doors, refurbishing the hardwood floors, setting up new appliances, painting the whole apartment... If you have a project in mind, chances are something similar was done at my place. And Doug and his team did it all extremely well.

First, and foremost, Doug is truly professional. He is always accessible (I thought I was good with text messages and emails!), impeccably courteous, and, most importantly, he has genuine integrity. He will be upfront and honest about every aspect of the work, including the budget. Doug deserves absolute trust, which is essential when you're making financial arrangements with, and committing your home to, people you don't know.

Secondly, he's a great partner with whom to oversee the whole project. He doesn't just execute: he provides experienced, creative and tasteful insights over every aspect of the work (for example, what type of closet door would make sense for a given space, or what kind of grout would stand the best against bathroom conditions). He doesn't impose any ideas, and he never pushes anything simply to charge more, but he provides precious advice every step of the way.

Finally, the work itself has been impeccable. Doug's team is highly accomplished, very reliable, and very pleasant. He brings his own, fully-licensed plumber and electrician, in addition to the rest of the crew, so you can rest assured that everything will be monitored by a single team. Everyone I met was hardworking, polite, and truly good at his job! The proof is in the quality of the work that was done.

I can't wait to recommend Doug and his team to anyone who comes my way. Just give him a call and see what happens!

  • My wife and I used Douglas Gibson Interior Renovations for our bathroom and kitchen renovations. We had an excellent experience. Both rooms turned out better than we imagined. Douglas and his team worked quickly and efficiently, working around our busy lives, and still leaving us with a livable situation while under construction. The kitchen was especially well done. Douglas Gibson is a true professional and a master of his craft.

  • Doug Gibson is the man I would recommend to any homeowner who wants to have their kitchen done. Very professional and congenial, he handled my kitchen renovation with competence and expertise. After a couple of 'not so great' contractor experiences it was just great to have someone fluent in all aspects of running a job and getting the best results. A problem solver, he managed a tricky situation with some brickwork i wanted to preserve--came out great.

  • We feel very fortunate to have found Doug and realize that the his skill, experience, and calm manner were immensely helpful to us during the entire process. It became clear to us that both Doug and his well-trained crew take real pride in their work and do all they can to satisfy their clients. Given all the challenges we faced from our Coop Board and the ongoing choices we had to make, we were especially grateful for Doug's responsiveness to every questions or issue that arose. The final result is better than we ever imagined!
