Hiring DCT Construction was a gamble. I had not seen any of their work and had no references. I found them on the internet. In the end, I really lucked out and cannot be happier with their work. They started repairing a bi fold door whose heavy duty track was damaged and was falling off track. Darrell found precisely the track I needed and installed it quickly and neatly. He and his crew work clean, protecting floors, walls, furniture. On the basis of his work on the door I gave him a lot of additional work -- sanding, staining, and varnishing lots of woodwork in my unit. Four of his crew members worked hard for most of three days. As they were here I found other small projects that had not been included in DCT's bid. They did these things cheerfully (and I volunteered to pay a bit more). Darrell was here at least once a day for walk throughs with his crew. He seemed to be a very effective boss -- requiring that some work be redone and compliment crew members on other things. I feel VERY lucky to have found him and will turn to him for other projects.

We first met Darrell when he was working for Lowes. We needed a new front door and he was the installer. Since we have an old Chicago bungalow (approximately 70 years old ) getting a proper fit and seal was a big problem. After several hours of work, he had the door installed. It fit perfectly and looked great. We needed additional repairs and remodeling work and we asked him for quotes and hired him. He has never pressured us about his quotes or had overruns. Over the next 7 or 8 years Darrell has remodeled the inside of our entire house, installed both the overhead and service doors on our garage. We still plan to do additional work. We have always been satisfied with his prices and work. When family and friends have inquired about who has done our work we always recommend Darrell and they have been satisfied.

We needed to replace a custom window and molding for an antique door and Darrell did a great job. The window had to be custom cut, and the molding was very ornate with a very unique finish. Darrell had the glass custom cut and found a mill able to replicate the molding very closely. Darrell was great at communicating throughout the project and charged exactly what he said he would. The project took a few weeks longer than usual, but this was due to the complicated nature of the project. Overall we had a great experience working with Darrell and would fully recommend him for any door/window project.

Brian did an absolutely stellar job assembling an IKEA shelving unit & table. He immediately took his shoes off upon entering the house so he wouldn't track anything in - without my asking him to. He also moved existing furniture around to accommodate the new pieces. He took his time and did things the right way the first time - there were no mistakes in his work. I strongly recommend Brian for any furniture assembly jobs you may have.

I asked Brian to reassemble my IKEA furniture and to install two LED TVs on walls. He was both professional and fully-dedicated in completing the jobs. He was on time as he promised, and kept being a perfectionest as he completes the jobs. I would recommend him to my friends without any reservation, and would like to work with him in the future, too.

I would recommend Brian to everyone. He has very reasonable rates, came right on time when he said he would, called first as I had asked him to, and did a great job with everything I needed done. And he did everything quick and safely. No damage to walls or furniture which is especially important to me since I rent. Very nice guy too. Thanks Brian!

Was looking for 6-dining room chairs to be reupholstered. Steve did a magnificent job! These 50-year-old chairs look new! Chose from a large selection of fabrics, added padding and Steve even fixed one of the chair legs that my dog had mistaken for a chew toy in her younger days! I couldn't even tell which chair had been repaired! And Steve refused to charge me anything extra for what was certainly a lot of extra work on his part. Am thrilled with the results and couldn't recommend Steve and Myriad Designs more highly!!! THANKS Steve!!!!!

I could not be happier with the end result of the furniture refinishing project Don Burch did for me. At stake was a 100-year-old bed that could not be replaced. Don worked miracles in repairing extensive damage to the footrail, creating new pieces of woodwork and finishing that matched the original so perfectly, not even the original craftsman could be able to tell the difference! I found Don to be reliable, professional, and a true artist at what he does. We were so pleased with the results that we are working with Don on another project in the near future.

Don transformed our kitchen by refinishing and painting our cabinets. From our initial phone conversation through the completed project Don was a true professional . He explained every step of the process and gave us advice on all of our decisions. The attention to detail and pride he shows in his work is outstanding. Don would notice and fix slight imperfections so that everything was up to his high standards. We are beyond pleased with the entire process and end result. Thanks Don!

Don did an exceptional job refinishing my kitchen cabinets. There was one cabinet drawer that didn't take the stain well on the first pass, but Don re-stained the drawer so I was satisfied. I would highly recommend Don's work and professionalism to anyone needing his service.

I hired April from Thumbtack to refinish/repaint my kitchen cabinets. They were basic country style and color wood cabinets and now they are a beautiful glazed gray finish. April got creative and came up with a wonderful pallet based on my taste and description of what I was thinking. She brought many different colors into the mix to achieve the final look. April emailed me many inspiration pictures which were so helpful as well. She went above and beyond. She made visits to show me samples she created, look at kitchen, and etc. I appreciate her and her time! She is very very talented! I would recommend April to anyone. I am very happy with the final product and am so glad I found her on thumbtack. The project took about 8 days and was in Elmurst, IL.

April is very professional- prompt and easy to work with and also helps you finalize decisions. I also had April do a bathroom vanity with a custom unique finish- April also coordinated with other vendors. Cant wait yo have April back for more projects!!!!!

My experience with Furniture Medic was wonderful. One of my new custom kitchen cabinets was damaged by water and I was so worried that it wouldn't match the others once it was repaired and repainted. Rick was very responsive (he talked me off of the ledge) and he and his employees who came to my house were all professional and very, very pleasant. The cabinets matched perfectly and I would trust this company with any wood-related project!

Bill's company does the most beautiful furniture refinishing imaginable. He comes to the house, picks up the furniture, does the work and returns the piece(s)as promised. When I moved a few years ago, he took several pieces from my old residence to his shop, refinished them, and returned them to my new place. His prices are competitive --actually very reasonable when compared to the quality of his work. He has also refinished built-in book cases, etc. He brings his equipment with him and goes to work doing his magic. Bill has refinished many, many things for me over the last 20 years: a grandfather clock case, a very ornate end table, chairs, dining room table and kitchen table, to name just a few. He has refinished pieces with shiny, formal finishes; antique, "farmhouse" pieces; and everything in between. He can do anything! Bill also does furniture reupholstering. I have not used him nearly as much for this as for refinishing but he has reupholstered several pieces for me and they are terrific. He also mends furniture. He may do some other furniture work that I haven't used. Bill is easy to reach to set up appointments. He is on time and will work hard to complete projects in his customers' time frames. This is a small family business and a wonderful one.

Faye Furniture has been an outstanding resource to me both personally and professionally. As a furniture moving company, we occasionally need repair, or customization of various furniture pieces for out customers. Their work has alwas been of outstanding quality and durability. Enough so that they have done refinishing for me on some of my own personal furniture with the same great results. I would recommend Faye Furniture Services to anyone, without reservation.

Brad refinished an antique church pew for us. It turned out beautiful and he even improved the base of the piece. He came and picked it up and delivered the finished product to our door.
