Very good experience working with Darrell. I've worked with many contractors and he is definitely one of the best. I had a very challenging job with a custom door. Most contractors offered cookie cutter solutions, but Darrell went the extra mile to make the project a success. I would highly recommend Darrell if you want to get the job done right the first time.

Ron has done many home improvements for me over the years and has helped to make my home look great! He has done everything from electrical (changing all my lighting in my house and one of them was from a 2 story entry way Yikes!), plumbing ( new kitchen sink, garbage disposal and sump pump) to adding crown molding and glass to my kitchen cabinets and now they look custom. He is friendly, prompt, very fair pricing, very knowledgable in all home improvements and best of all he is a perfectionist. He will not leave the job until it is perfect and the customer is very happy. He did new tile in my mom's kitchen and now she loves him too! I've delt with many contractors over the years and really Ron is the best.

There is something special about Andrei. He is nothing like the contractors I was used to working with. From the first time we met during his estimate, he immediately stood out as professional yet very approachable, honest and detail oriented. No contractor has ever come to an estimate wearing a suit, breaking down the big project to individual tasks on the spot, and pricing each task individually as we spoke. And his price was truly reasonable. Andrei and hist partner Andrei had a rather big task on their hands - gut-rehab my master and second bathroom, and tile my foyer. I am a picky person, and I wasn't sure if I could find somebody to go along with my anal nature and constantly changing mind. But Andrei listened to all my needs and worked with me like a friend throughout the whole project. I wanted a modern curb-less linear shower drain for my master bath. Some contractors that came before Andrei have never even heard of that. He instructed my plumber on where to relocate the drain, and the rest was all Andrei. I wanted a double vanity instead of the single vanity and Andrei again worked with my plumber on relocating the toilet so we have space for a double vanity. The Andreis drove the whole project from start to finish, unlike many contractors which will leave you the last 10% for you to figure out. We had a few bumps along the road, such as having to wait on some tiles for a week, but the Andreis were very accommodating to our situation and they worked around our schedule. I'm sure I'm forgetting something, but I hope you get the picture. No contractor is perfect, but Andrei comes really close to it. Best of luck to you my friend!

We hired LoProstis to assist with a water heater issue in our home. Brian, from LoProstis, called us right away for an initial consultation over the phone, and within an hour, he arrived at our house to explain what went wrong and the course of action needed to repair the water heater. We appreciated his honesty and the accuracy of his quote in order to fix the issue, but more importantly, we appreciated the education that came along with it. Not only did Brian install a new water heater in our home; he also help us to select a reputable brand, based on his recommendation and hauled away the old water heater. He did not compromise on his professionalism to charge a higher fee (given the fact it was a weekend and one of the coldest day of the year), nor use that as an opportunity for a surcharge. It's very rear to find an honest contractor and who's willing to do the right thing, and Brian has both. He exceeded our expectations and got up and running within hours. We would definitely hire Brian again. Thank you for your hard work and excellent service, Brian.

As an architect, I was looking for the right person to help me with my complete re-roofing project in Naperville and after talking to over 8 contractors I had selected Joe of Fox Restoration because I trusted him and knew that he would do it right and fix any concerns that I may have...bottom line I was right, the project was perfect and he did take action when it came to my input and concerns...he not also showed up everyday to supervise his team but at the end of each day, after his crew left the job site, he even went as far as to do extra cleanup work to make sure the property looked orderly and was safe of any debris and nails on the ground. I would without any hesitation recommend Fox Restoration for any existing or new roofing project...[Thanks so much Joe, you were indeed a true professional who is detailed oriented like myself!] All the best, Alex

We couldn't be happier with Jeremy and J&S Exterior! He came out and advised us about what he could do with our siding both repairs with painting or siding. Then left it up to us which way to go with more information than we had been given by 4 other contractors. We chose the siding and it is beautiful and done with professionalism and on time. Thanks 😊

Marek came out with his wife and provided a estimate for my tile installation in my kitchen. We set a start date and Marek showed up on time. He made sure everything looked precise. He did an excellent job, we are so pleased with his work. Will definitely hire him again on future projects.

My wife and I were very happy with the team of Darwin and Cindy. Their work was excellent, and they listened to our needs and wishes. Darwin especially was very good in coming up with solutions to problems that arose during the process of remodeling our basement. We would not hesitate to call on them again for a project in our home. Thank you again.

I hired Rising Construction to fix some gas pipes that were leaking in my basement. I expressed the need to get them repaired asap. They showed up earlier than expected. They were very reasonable on the price. I added on some additional jobs and they took care of them as well. You can tell they are good people. I highly recommend Edwin and Alvin.

Stayed home from work as I expected him. Calls me 30 mins to an hour before expected arrival and says he can’t come until next week. Need this to be done ASAP and now have to start all over with new contractors. Not happy primarily because I stayed home from work to accommodate his arrival.

Bruce and his crew were great to work with during our basement remodel. We shared our vision and he helped us to make it happen within our budget. He was upfront and honest about the costs that were incurred along the way and gave us lots of options/directions to go at different price points so we could make an informed decision. During the construction process, the crew worked diligently to get the work done. They sent daily updates with photos about what was accomplished each day and were always available to answer questions. Whenever we would call, text, or email, we heard back in a reasonable amount of time with the details we needed. At one point, we shared a concern about something and Bruce made sure that it was remedied to our liking without hesitation. It was so evident that he takes great pride in his work and looks to ensure his customers are 100% satisfied. Since moving to the area we have worked with several local "handymen" and Genesis may have just earned the title of our new "go to guy!" Thank you!!!

Jim is simply the most professional, honest and humble contractor I've ever hired! He answered all my questions, was at my place at 8.30am and left at 6pm. His work is just incredible - he installed shoe base on two floors and took his time to make it perfect and neat. Reasonably priced. Rear occasion when you actually is very happy to pay someone. Well deserved! Already planned some other projects. Thank you!

This was the easiest contractor I have ever had to work with. Brad demo'd my current deck and converted it to a one level deck. Brad's pricing was right in line with other quotes I received, he always showed up right on time, and the work was done exactly how I had envisioned it. He was even flexible enough to push back the original install date when I requested it at the last minute because I was going out of town. Do not bother trying someone else, this is the guy to hire. I strongly recommend him.

After purchasing my home at the end of 2015, my husband and I hired Castle to completely revamp our new home and large corner lot. They built two large decks, took down a chain-link fence and installed a wooden one, put up drywall in the garage, planted our bushes, took down several trees, put up our rock edging, painted the entire house, installed and designed our closet system, added electrical outlets, hid the chords and mounted our televisions, and put together several pieces of furniture including our patio furniture. I loved their work. I look forward to using them in the future.

The stairs from the kitchen to the basement were covered with old linoleum. My husband and I removed some of the lino and saw the wood was bad. When Glenn arrived, we told him to replace the tread and risers with new oak.They were stained and finished with polyurethane. A railing was also installed.

They installed my kitchen butcher block for very reasonable amount and they did a great job. So in addition I added a few little things for them to do, like installing kitchen faucet and sink drain. I will be hiring them again for a bigger job in my basement. Reliable and price rate is reasonable. He seems honest.

Chris and his team did work this year to both my basement and remodeling my shower which had a leak in my family room. My family room was stuck in the 1970's and Chris help with giving us the ideas to help make the space more modern and more usable. Chris improved the bones of the space as well helping with insulation in the walls, which was almost non-exitant, sound proofing the ceiling to the bedrooms upstairs, reinforcing the floor above, re-working the electrical to be functional and safer and adding a closet to dead space. Once the structure was solid, the work to improve the aesthetics of the space were beautiful. All done very well with attention to detail. From the wall molding to the stacked stone feature wall (for the TV,) Chris and team could do everything we asked for and all at a reasonable price. We consider this one of the most beautiful spaces in our house and it's become the spot everyone wants to stay in. Separately, he helped us quickly repair/remodel our shower which had a leak (he found was leaking for a couple of years.) He replaced all the support and came up with a seamless design to incorporate it with the rest of the bathroom. He added six more inches with a poured concrete base in the floor and raised the shower head to accommodate taller people like myself. Again, just fantastic work both in construction and in finish. Chris and team are absolutely the nicest and most professional real people you will work with as well. They clean up constantly and always respect the home they are working in. I will definitely be using Chris again in the future.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
