I'm very happy with the work Andrei provided. Within two weeks of visiting my home and quoting the fireplace re-tiling, the job is done. Price was fair and results are great. I would definitely recommend Andrei for whatever tiling job is needed. He and his partner are prompt, courteous, professional, and clean.
Installed Windows and doors in my new home. Works very well with your budget. Would hire again
I hired Jeff after a home inspection while selling my home. I needed to fix a few things I didn't even know needed fixing. This included changing the main water valve under the house to working in the attic venting the bathroom fan. I also had some exterior eaves that need replacement. Jeff know how to handle all the jobs. He did a great job addressing everything. He is very knowledgeable when I comes to home construction. I plan on calling Jeff when I move to my new home for any work needed.
We had a great experience! We needed a variety of odds and ends done around the house including lighting, fixing toilets issues, building a patio set and gas fire pit. We will use him again for building our deck.
BR Design came out within a day of contacting them. They were very professional,and pricing was reasonable. Our home remodel went great, and the small details that they recommended turned out better than expected. We are glad we did them. We have gotten many compliments from family and friends. I would definitely recommend them to others. Thanks again BR Design!
Alumni Builders was an amazing company to work with on our home renovation. Dan was very professional and upfront with all costs, both expected and unexpected. He was thorough with our contract and allowed us to make changes along the way. He was in communication with us during the entire renovation and would let us know what the upcoming work would be as well as the name of who would be performing the work. We have a six month old at home and Dan was as accommodating as possible with his schedule & needs and understanding of my concerns (paint fumes, etc.) The quality of work was excellent and our basement has been transformed! I would absolutely recommend and rehire Alumni Builders for any future projects we might have.
Chris basically remodeled my whole house, without his great advice and precise work I would of been lost. He did my floors, stairs and trim, among other things. His quality of work and attention of detail is outstanding. I constantly get compliments on all the wood work and get asked for his info. Don't waste your time and hire Chris, you won't regret it.
The job I had Jan do was a floor joist re-attachment on a house built in 1953. The work area was a very cramped mud crawl. The joist has been re-attached and supported with lumber and a jack resting a very substantial block of concrete that had to be mixed and poured onsite. It's a very strong and durable repair. Jan and his partner worked efficiently and safely. I feel that Jan is qualified, honest and reasonable. I would therefore recommend his services to anyone.
Chris designed our house and pole barn attachment. He has been readily available throughout the entire processes answering all our questions thoroughly. He has been patient with my husband and I as we tried to make mutual decisions. He has also been in contact with us during the building process. The house and pole barn aren't finished yet but I'm excited to see the final product.
David was a huge assest in partnering with me, building a custom home of my dreams. We built a 3400 sq. ft. ranch home in 2007 - Monee, IL with numerous upgrades. The project lasted about 8 months, would have been done sooner if it wasn't for weather delays. David kept the project on time and impressed me with his organization and total home building knowledge that I needed to finish on time and on budget. True testament to my home and David's skills are that after 8 years of living in my home, I still look forward going home everyday to a quality built home that has total usable living area! My experience with David was A+ with one word to define, professional. William Kosic
Josh at Larson Home Repair did a number of different jobs for us (requiring a range of different skills), and he was exceptional... Prompt, very professional, clearly knew what he was doing, excellent work overall, reasonable rates. We are definitely going to hire him again!
We have a small house in Riverside. It is about 1,000 sf. It is a split level modern house built in the 1950's. We wanted an open plan concept with a cathedral ceiling. We removed wall to new ceiling, creating an upstairs loft. The project was completed in 2001.We have lived in it for 16 years! We love the plan and the cathedral ceiling 16' high. Our room is now open 20'x24', with new skylights above the living room. Arlene was a terrific help. We got our plans on time during the design phase, and got our permits without any new work or any changes to our design. We have enjoyed our redesigned home for the past 11 years and would definitely recommend Arlene to our friends! -Keller Jobe
john managed a rather large remodel for my Naperville home. we put an addition on, remodeled the kitchen adding cherry 42" cabinets, granite and Corian counters. other work moved doorways, added 2 large family room windows, moved a slider to the kitchen, and did a lot of drywall work. it also entailed moving our electrical service and reconfiguring the deck. In my opinion, the job could not have gone better, or could we have gotten a better result! John found kitchen space where there was none and added tremendous guidance to the planning and scheduling stages. I can't say enough positive about uor experience!
Steve Vasilion designed a major addition and remodeling of our home. The design transformed our relatively plain little 1940 ranch into a uniquely beautiful and livable house. Steve did an amazing job of creating a house design that is both attractive and functional while efficiently using space. At the same time it fits extremely well into the landscape of our property. Steve's service encompassed all aspects of the project from concept and design detailing, through the bidding process until the construction was complete. He listened carefully to what we wanted and created a design that transformed our house in ways that we could never have imagined. He then followed through the whole project to ensure that his vision was faithfully expected by the contractor. This service was not inexpensive but we definitely got what you paid for and more.
We contacted Jacob to design our forever home in 2015 after purchasing acreage to build. We were slightly in a rush to get financing and start building in the spring, but didn't want to compromise on our list of wants. We had specific room arrangements and outside design elements we wanted and he listened to all of our requests. The 3D model walked us through the layout and helped us fine-tune the details. We couldn't be happier with Jacob's service and his attention to detail. On March 6 we celebrated our first year of living in our new home.
He finished two jobs back to back for me on consecutive days in a very speedy manner. He was very responsive and very friendly and accommodating. I will definitely be using him again for future projects.
Martin was very responsive and did a great job painting a wall in our kitchen. He is very nice and gav great suggestions. We will definitely use him again for work in our home!
After my home inspection I had some concerns regarding the structure. I hired John to take a look at the home and give his expert opinion. He not only did a great job at that but went above and beyond and took a look at many other pain points I had from the initial report. He also spoke directly with the home owner regarding some repairs that should be made and instructed how the home owner could do so. The home owner ended up repairing the items John recommended saving me time and hassle in the future. Extremely impressed with John's work and would highly, highly recommend.
I just used Greenleaf developers to build an addition at the back of my house. I met with a lot of companies but ultimately chose Greenleaf developers because they were the most organized and affordably priced. They had everything picked out in no time and stayed within my budget. The crew got started on the date we agreed upon. I could not be happier with the finished product from the design to the craftsmanship! Thank you, Peter!
