It was a pleasure working with Chester. He was a professional throughout the entire process. I had some city violations on a 2 flat I own. Chester knew exactly what needed to be done. If it wasn't for him I would still be dealing with these issues. Everything was done in a very timely manner for what I consider to be a more than fair price. I look forward to working together again in the near future. I would recommend him without any hesitation. Chlebek Architects are top notch in my book. Above all Chester was reliable and that is something that is very hard to find!

CH Architects, Ltd. (architect & contractor)
There are several reasons for my strong support in performing our due diligence. My wife and I solicited numerous bids for the job, CH + architect & contraction was the ONLY firm where both the architect and construction manager attended all planning meetings, and all questions could be answered, subsequently he was extremely professional, thorough and was on-site and hands-on for virtually everything his subcontractors did. CH + architect & contraction manager is a highly professional outfit with great communication and planning that really took into account our needs as a client and worked with us to fulfill the vision we had of our kitchen addition. Lastly, and most importantly, Chesters have gained my trust and I look forward to working with his crew in the future. Mark Costino, Oak Park, ILOct 5, 2015Review from GoogleCHESTER CHLEBEK's reply

I contacted Chester about doing an inspection of a number of walls that I wanted to remove in a home that we recently purchased, to verify that they were not Load Bearing. Chester responded to my request and we worked out a mutually agreeable time to meet and Chester was on time, and did a thorough inspection and confirmed that the walls were indeed not Load Bearing and that we were safe to remove. I also found his pricing to be very fair. I would not hesitate to contact Chester again when the need arisesMay 16, 2019Verified
