I live in a 90 year old home that was in need of some major plaster repair work on the ceiling in the garage and the basement. Mike responded almost instantaneously with a message and personally visited that same day. He followed up quickly with a written quote and kept me informed about when he would be on site. He specializes in plaster and concrete work and it shows in his professionalism and the excellent quality of his work. This is my first experience with plaster v drywall and he took the time to explain the approach/process and took care of every little crack (which I didn't even notice) and the obvious issues. The prep work and cleanup was meticulous and that is very important because the demo creates serious dust and debris. For this kind of work, a specialist/pro is highly recommended vs a handyman and of course that should be MIke. I will hire Mike again as the need arises
Walt did a great job on installing car siding on our ceiling. The wood was a hot mess. It had been bought 3 yrs ago and was stored outside ünder a tarp my hubby was gonna do the work but then got sick. I would very highly recommend Walt for any hot messes you have !!! Thanks Walt sorry I didn't get to meet you Am not including photo as we have to paint the wood yet and it is a large area
Robert Chwalek and his team are some of the most hard working bunch of people I have had the pleasure of working with. I hired them to remodel my entire house. They stained all of the wood flooring. They installed new wooden flooring in a room. They repainted two and half rooms. They repainted all trims, crown moldings, and doors. They installed new electrical fixtures (lights, ceiling fans) across the entire house. They even remodeled all the bathrooms. Everything was done beautifully and on time. Robert's commitment to his craft is unmatched. His attention to detail and his team management skills are fantastic. The pricing for the entire project was fair as well. A special shout out to his team member Stanley for all his hard work and the long hours he put in to get everything done on time. In the end, I am very happy with the outcome of Chwalek's hard work. The whole team deserves more than five stars. I look forward to hiring them for future projects.
We took down an interior wall in our house so we needed someone to come in and repair the walls and ceiling. Bill did a great job. The drywall looks great.
Edmond Fernandez helped me with the restoration of my 1865 home in Lincoln Park. Over a period of six months or so, he totally reconstructed my large dining room and living room. Both had been misused and abused by the people who owned the house prior to its purchase by my husband's family in 1959. In the dining room, he reconstructed walls and ceiling and removed an extraneous closet that had been bumped into the room. He took considerable time and painstaking effort to repair the damaged plaster crown molding, replacing what was missing or unrepairable with perfectly matched foam. He also hung the wallpaper in this room, straightened the large arch between living room and dining room and installed salvaged curved corner molding in the archway. Edmond also restored and redecorated a small study downstairs, installing much-needed closet and storage space, and did the same for my master bedroom. A year before all of this, he restored the walls, floor and ceiling in my kitchen, installing insulation where it had never been. Edmond has also been very helpful in finding plumbers, electricians and other workmen as needed. Edmond was always on time and spent long hours on these projects...on one occasion I got up at 5 a.m. and found him downstairs still painting! All of his work is very high quality. He is also as neat as it is possible to be, keeping disruption and mess to a minimum. His attention to detail is superb...he is a true craftsman and I can't recommend him highly enough!
Justin did a great job in our foyer with super high 18ft tall ceilings that we couldn't reach. He was very responsive and kept us in the loop of when he will be coming. He was clean and left the area like he was never there.
I used Brian to replace some cracked plaster on my ceiling - I would highly recommend and will use Brian for other plaster jobs - he was punctual and affordable as well as a good communicator.
We moved into an older home in Melrose Park and hired Lance for a variety of Carpentry and Handyman projects needed as we settled in. We called on him to put flooring in the basement, build walls, fix cabinets, install wall mounted televisions, and insulate a crawl space. And other stuff that I can't remeber right now. Hee was competent, courteous, honest and very fair. I will hire him again (soon I suspect as the work in this house seems endless ;-)
Tim did a great job with our Dry Wall and plastering problems in our home. There were 4 areas that he needed to work on. Three were plaster and one was plaster which he replaced with dry wall. He did a great job with it. Was was very trustworthy (I had to leave him in my house several times alone). There was one part of the ceiling which he saw the next day in a different light and he (without me pointing it out to him) said that he wanted to redo that small area (and he did). He did a very good job and I would hire him again (for general painting). His prices are extremely reasonable!
Craig and his crew painted the living room, bedroom walls and ceilings, replaced metal trims, and patched the holes. There were some delays due to unforeseen and existing conditions, but Craig handled them very well with his positive attitude and came back the next day to finish the job. I wish I could give 5/5 stars, but gave 4/5 stars due to his tardiness and the bare minimum work done for cleaning. My overall experience with Craig and his crew was satisfactory.
Jose and his group did a fantastic job transforming our dungeon of a garage into a sparkling beautiful “room”! They painted dirty old cinderblock/brick/drywall a bright, clean light gray with white accents and the results are fantastic! The team worked 12 hours straight to get the job done in one day, were very nice, great at communicating and asking me questions throughout the process to make sure everything was painted the way I wanted. They did the walls, doors and ceiling. Looks better than I even hoped! I would recommend them to all of my friends and neighbors. Check out the before and afters!!
I hired Steve to repair a hole in my plaster ceiling as well as several cracks. Steve showed up on time for the estimate, was very thorough and friendly. He communicated very well throughout the process and answered any questions I had. The job was finished quickly and smoothly. I will definitely be using Steve for some future projects.
Patrick patched 3 areas of stucco on my kitchen ceiling. His work was good, he was through, hung plastic to keep the mess contained and cleaned up when he finished. Job went well and looks good. He also took measurements for additional work we are contemplating, but I have not heard back from him with the estimates. Work was done 3 weeks ago.
Michael and his father did a great job painting our ceiling(s) and did it in a very timely manner. Price was great too
Davison Painting did an awesome job when we decided to change the colors in our kitchen. I would definitely recommend them to anybody who needs their home painted with quality and painters who know how to be professional.
Great work! My family owns a rental property and Mr. Knight worked to get the place ready to rent again. He did drywall work, laid tile, installed a ceiling fan, repaired a ceiling fan, painted, and cleaned. Good work and reasonable prices. He needs steady help to ensure that his work is done in a more timely fashion, I plan to work with him again!
Kevin repaired and patched my kitchen ceiling after I had canned lights installed. He also painted my kitchen and dinning room. He was very knowledgeable and meticulous in maintaining the highest quality work and to my wife's delight he cleaned up after himself each day.
Very kind courteous and funny easy going guy. He did awesome work installed 2 ceiling fans, and a full length mirror. He worked great with my schedule and being able to fit me in with short notice. Will contact him again.
Vince put in a mail box, a ceiling fan and power washed and sealed our large concrete patio in Hoffman Estates. The job took two days to complete with 3 days of drying time after the power wash. The job was done professionally and everything looks as we hoped it would. We had a small issue after the sealant was applied but Vince came out and fixed it. We will work with him again if the need arises!
Kevin with Niles HandyWorks was so profession and timely. I had 2 ceiling fans installed and a garbage disposal. Also he helped with the water heater no extra charge just by me mentioning it. I highly recommend Niles HandyWorks. It’s nice to see a company going that extra step to make customers happy.
Fred installed a ceiling fan for me. Not only did he know what he was doing, he cleaned up afterhimself - even offering to take the box and trash/box downstairs in the highrise I live in so I didn't have to do it.
