Branden installed tub and shower plumbing, and a vessel sink and facet in our home today, and he did a fantastic job. He was prompt, knowledgeable, courteous, and a pleasure to work with. We highly recommend Branden for these reasons, and plan to hire him again soon for both plumbing and power washing up the road.

What began as the installation of a new electrical server, and panel upgrade, evolved into the hiring of Mr. Day to completely re-wire my entire home. I was happy to have found an electrician that was: Licensed, Bonded, Insured and knew Chicago's wiring codes. He offered a competitive rate, which did not feel exorbitant nor alarmingly low. I am a firm believer, that if the price is too good to be true, RUN!!! And where too high, get several bids. Mr. Day gave a written proposal, outlining the price for labor and materials. I found him to be detailed in explaining his services, and how proper electrical wiring was suppose to be installed vs. what had been done in my home, which was passed off as work. I was impressed with his willingness to explain the importance of electrical wiring, the work it entailed and why it was necessary to have it completed "to code" to ensure safe and reliable electrical current delivery. Mr. Day completed the work in a timely manner and always asked if I had questions, or concerns. Where there were un-foreseen issues, he did not proceed until he conferred with me. I appreciated this step, which allowed me the homeowner to control additional cost, if warranted. I can honestly say, in the 25 years of owning and residing in my home, a 1920s English Tudor, which when purchased, was sold with the "inferred" impression that wiring was current; I am now not only pleased, but also confident in the safety of my home's electrical wiring, now that it has been completely rewired properly with safety in mind. Based on my experience with Mr. Day, I would not hesitate to refer him to others. A tradesman's greatest advertising is his work, and Mr. Day's work speaks volumes!

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.

Wish I could give more stars!! Yuri showed up promptly and worked very fast, without compromising quality. My carpets look BRAND NEW!!! With pets and kids I had heavy stains that I thought would never come out but Yuri got the job done and done well. My husband, who is hard to please was thoroughly impressed as was I!
