Gilbert delivers professional construction and remodeling services on commercial and residential projects in Orange and surrounding counties of the greater Orlando area.  We specialize in remodeling both commercial and residential structures to barrier-free standards.  We are fully insured, including  General Liability and Workers’ Compensation.

Our respectful, detail-oriented process relies on time-tested approaches that include precise planning, project management, skilled craftsmanship, and close communication with you. From the design through the finishing craftsmanship, our quality work will endure. Our staff members are very polite, skilled and competent.

We are constantly working in occupied buildings, with minimal disruption to the occupants. We know that communication is key.  Before construction, a meeting will be held with you to determine how to best work around you. During construction, advanced notice will be given regarding schedule modifications.

From Design To Finishing Craftsmanship

Who We Are as Remodelers

Many of us will experience, at least, a temporary disability. Accidents will happen and you could find yourself using a wheelchair or walker. As we mature and grow older, getting around our home becomes more difficult. Then we ask, “How can I get up those steps or through that narrow door?” Planning for this comes from far-sighted homeowners, builders, and remodelers like L.M. Gilbert, who will anticipate limitations and changing needs. Traditional home builders have never really considered the needs of those who are disabled or seniors, and that can make your home inaccessible and even unsafe. We understand these difficulties and L.M. Gilbert wants to help you make your life a little easier and more productive. L.M. Gilbert can provide home accessibility modifications to enhance and improve the safety of your home. We make it easier to accomplish activities of daily living such as dressing, eating, and bathing. By providing a safer environment, we help prevent accidents to allow greater independence and the ability to live a more comfortable lifestyle. We are a remodeling and construction company that assists people with all disabilities by providing a barrier-free and universal-design environment.

Historic Homes renovations

We have constructed projects in historic areas of Winter Park and Orlando. We are sensitive to the original materials and craftsmanship of historic buildings. We have designed and built in Cherokee Heights in Orlando, and College Quarter in Winter Park. Remember our motto: “Projects should look like we were never there.” Our construction should seamlessly blend with the existing structure.

One of our best-known assets is our ability to solve problems. Most buildings have mistakes and flaws built into them from the beginning. We can spot the problem, correct the design, and make the repair. We find it frustrating to see “repairs” repeating mistakes of the original construction. We won’t allow that to happen.
