Tim & his apprentice came & installed two new faucets for me. They did a great job at a fair price, and he was also a pleasure to talk to.. a real nice guy, recommended for any plumbing job. He also has several other subcontractors that can do any job as well. I will definitely call back for a few other larger jobs.
All work was completed on time and on budget. Very high quality work. Had absolutely no objection when I added on a few additional smaller projects as well. Had him repaint my kitchen, master bath, guest bath, guest bedroom and first floor power room. All work looks simply amazing! Would definitely hire him again in the future! Sourced through Thumbtack. For being my first experience using Thumbtack, I was definitely satisfied with its role in linking homeowners with contractors.
Andrei was excellent, he is a master of his craft, have artistic vision and did more than we expected. He is very reasonable and did outstanding bathroom re-modeling work, he also painted and did touch-up/finish work, I recommend Andrei for any remodeling, new build work with confidence.
Bathroom rehab requested. The contractor's work was done in a timely manner which was my main concern. He also stayed within my budget by using the best quality of material. I will be contacting him in the near future for additional work.
Bob did an awesome job installing our doors and trim. Exceptional workmanship at fair and reasonable price. I would highly recommend him. We will be calling him again for more work. Love Thumbtack site. I will definitely be using it and Bob again.
Jake is not only a warm, friendly guy but his business partner Jeremy is equally great. They are both dedicated, use time wisely, add great architectural taste and ideas in a project, and work very hard. Work was done on time, within budget totally, and a few extras were added as a bonus that we had not thought of. They are great workers and designers and just all together great guys. I cannot recommend this company enough. I know you will be delighted with their work. They mostly do the work themselves with subcontractors where needed, such as cement work or electrical, but they are master carpenters themselves with a great view of a project and how to make it the very best for you. Thank you so much, Jake and Jeremy.
I needed drywall work completed in my basement, and superior did a fantastic job! I have a few more projects that I will be hiring them for!
James provided me with a replacement for my 110 foot driveway. He clearly explained how work would be performed and gave me a very fair price. He had the worked completed on schedule and responded to me very quickly when I had some questions. The construction team was efficient and the result excellent. I would certainly work with James/Chicago Pro again.
I was very pleased with the professionalism by Dan and the subcontractors doing the remodeling. They knew exactly what needed to be done, and it was quite an extensive project. I would recommend Alumni Builders to anyone that needed work done at their home. They did a great job.
EXCELLENT experience for bathroom -- totally redone. I met with TCN (Tom & Elise), then over the next two days I visited the suppliers they recommended (tile, plumbing, lighting, etc), and made my selections. So TCN's quote was based on my actual choices. Then I left for 5+ weeks in Florida! Throughout the process, communications by TCN and their crew were outstanding....clear, timely, advice-filled, courteous. Even though I was not home during most of the work, they were trustworthy and kept everything as tidy as possible. It felt like a real partnership. I am very pleased with and proud of how amazing it turned out. Thanks, TCN!
JES Services completed an addition on our home, adding a new master suite. They handled the project start to finish: having architectural plans created, gathering permits and managing the whole project. We couldn't be happier with the outcome and we will love the space for years to come! Justin was professional and handled the city and their inspectors like a pro. His team of employees were clean and polite and showed up on time and ready to work. We would recommend JES and the entire team, they were GREAT!
JUST WONDERFUL. I almost hesitate to leave Tony a review in fear that he'll be booked the next time I need him, but I couldn't do that, because he DESERVES the highest praise. Tony came into our disorganized new home, took on a rather convoluted lists of home projects, made sense of everything, and just went to work. A couple of days later, my new house had turned into a working, functioning home. He did a little of a lot of things which showcases the diversity of his many talents, but one of the coolest things he did for us was to convert a coat closet into a pantry with the construction of some solid shelving. Besides his construction skills, he's a really awesome, reliable, and honest person. I recommend him highly .... and hope to be able to use his services again! Thank you, Tony .... you were a lifesaver!
Larry has worked as a subcontractor for my company and has been assigned several tasks to include carpentry, sign installation as well as other projects. Larry is responsible, thorough and reliable. When he is on a project, he is the face of our company so it is important that he interacts well with our customers and creates a positive experience. Larry delivers!
John is a stand up guy. We had problems with a subcontractor, John removed him from the job and got another to replace him. It actually cost him more to finish the project, but he absorbed the overage and got the job done. Very professional. I will use his services again
Tom Carroll is very knowledgeable in all areas of home improvement. He is able to perform most jobs expertly himself. With larger items, he brings in competent subcontractors and maintains control over the project. He provides very complete explanations of the work needed and offers excellent suggestions. He always cleans and removes debris from the work site at the end of the day. His fees are reasonable and he promptly returns calls.
Juan and his team of guys did an amazing job with installing a fence in our backyard, in fact I have been using them for all my construction needs -- they are very nice and very professional!!
Trig-V Builders, specifically Ulysses Umanos, is currently the General Contractor on an extensive residential rehab project for which I hired him. His knowledge and expertise in building trades has proven to be extensive as evidenced by the entire tear out and replacement of electrical, plumbing, roofing, framing, HVAC, flooring, doors, decking and siding on this project. Ulysses coordinated and supervised his chosen subcontractors and actually did significant skilled work himself. He is very dependable, honest and professional. I highly recommend Trig-V Builders, LLC for your next project.
From the start of the home building process all the way through move in Roca Builders were professional, easy to talk to and courteous. When problems arose they solved the issues efficiently and capably. They always kept us informed on the progress. The subcontractors were professional as well and always had practical suggestions. We would not hesitate to recommend Roca Builders Inc.
This was our first experience using a general contractor and we had an excellent experience. Emanuel and his crew did a fantastic job in all aspects of the project. They completed the job ahead of the initial estimate even after running into a couple of unanticipated problems along the way. We were given a plan for the project and informed daily of the next day's activities and of any changes to the upcoming days' activities. Several adds and changes to the work by us, were taken in stride and worked out equitably. Emanuel and his crews' attention to detail and pride in workmanship were evident throughout the project. His subcontractors were also very good and easy to work with. While we did enjoy getting our house back, we did miss our daily interaction with Emanuel and his crew. They are truly good people.
To anyone looking for a contractor large or small Joe is the one you are looking for. My name is Debbie, I live in Glenview Illinois. I have been saving for many years to put an addition on our house. I have been very skeptical of contractors in the past, but my friend who used Joe for his driveway was very happy with the work he did. The business is called Junk It Joes (clean outs, demolition, excavation and concrete). I hired him for an addition on our house and demolition of our one car garage to build a two car garage and a full 500sq ft addition with 9 ft basement on back of our garage, which is always scary putting that much faith in someone to put a hole in your house, and I was nothing less than very pleased. The references I checked all came out excellent and his estimates came out in the same ballpark as for our budget. The speed, in which it got done, even though he is not a large company, was fast. The most stressful part he put behind us and our minds at ease. It saved us a lot of time and money to hire one company when we had concrete companies that did not do excavating and demolition which added allot more to the bids. Joe informed us it is the same equipment to do all this and also said it takes alot more time to have 3 different companies lined up and also the amount we saved we were able to get a lot more. We acted as the general contractor to save money and Joe helped us every step of the way with other contractors so we did not get ripped off. He informed us that we could always fire contractors if we were not happy and by making sure we did not pay in advance for work not completed. With this knowledge he gave us the upper hand. He worked side by side with other contractors to make sure everything went smooth as soon as the house was opened up. He put plywood and plastic up so no saw dust or debris came into the house. The site was cleaned up every day. I didn't have to worry about mud, dust or debris getting into my house. After the third day we were very at ease with going to work knowing Joe and his crew was amazing and they all knew exactly what to do without being told. He informed us him and his three main guys been with him since he started. We had kids there and they were nothing less than always professional and on time. My kids and neighbors kids loved watching the project. Because of this Joe stayed late put orange safety fence up every night another thing not in our bid. He went above and beyond; he also made sure other contractors put it back up. He was very concerned about the kids getting in and hurt. He was also big on the contractors we hired conduct themselves professionally and not use four letter words when having a bad day. It was summer and hot it was august and we let other contractors know Joe wanted to call a meeting of everyone we hired to make sure if they could not get there when called to retract there bid and that was kids and winter around corner. It was not his job but he is such nice guy that everyone respected him including us. I believe he was the youngest owner we hired of a company. He never had to yell or act like a jerk and let everyone know this is someones home savings and lifelong dream. He made sure everyone knew that its not just a job. He explained all costs and step by step of what would be done. He was very forthcoming if something had to be changed. He is very honest and takes pride in his work. He was always at the job every day and treated it like it was his own house; he worked longer and harder than anyone else. He wanted to make sure, due the fact that houses are so close to each other, that no damage was done to our neighbors house or ours with the big machines used he did it himself. He even put up silk fencing before he started at no charge to us. There was a problem with an electrical line missed marked and had to be moved right in the path of the new addition. When digging it shut the job down temporarily, but Joe got Com Ed out right away to move the line. This was not in our budget but we already knew we saved so much when he had to call me at work he was scared. Glad to inform you with him that was our biggest problem and we lost no sleep. By end of the week the job was back on schedule. We never had to worry about materials not being paid, he did this without asking. When it came time for every payout there were only three. He turned something I thought was going to be a long nightmare into something that did not take much of our time. However the job was big enough Joe explained that what he quoted was able to do extras and not work for free. Not because we were homeowners trying get everything for the cheapest or free. He informed us yes there are bad contractors but there are people that rip them off too. So it works both ways. Joe showed proof of all receipts (which I would never have thought to ask). He also informed us to do the same thing with the other subcontractors we hired that were doing work as well. I have heard of horror stories of liens being put on homes, we never had to worry. We didn't even have to put a deposit down until the concrete was ready to be poured. The job came in under budget and was done very professional. He never tried to over sell us anything we did not need. We asked him about heated concrete floors because we heard other people loved them. Most contractors would jump on it and charge a fortune for extras. He told us that it was very efficient but his crew has only done a couple, it is very time consuming and worries about leaks in the line. Instead of trying to sell us on it, he told us get bids. After we told him how much others cost he said he would do it for the cost of labor only if we order it. He spent so much time with the manufacture on the phone and made sure he would not have to rip his new concrete up. He said he has done a couple but has been lucky, not what we do every day. We paid for the system and he only charged us labor but the deal was my husband had to help so they both learned about it. It cost us less than half the bids we got. We love it, the best thing ever got and we were still within our budget. My husband is a union carpenter whom would work with Joe or recommend him any day. He was very impressed with his work; he went above and beyond what was expected and even threw in a few extras to keep us happy. After the second day I was completely confident I hired the right person. He did a follow up call after the first month, three months later and stopped by just to make sure we were still happy and there were no problems. This is our second year and have passed his name along to all my friends and family. We are happy to report that we love our addition and have made it the dream house. Its done, furnished and we saved so much we could furnish it. I never thought in million years the project would come under budget. For being the biggest project I ever taken on, without him I dont think it would have went as well. It was well worth the countless hours my husband and I spent with him he acted more like the general contractor. We had enough for a new concrete driveway in the end instead of asphalt. We offered him a bonus since he acted like a general contractor and relied on him so heavily we felt bad but he turned it down. He said his guys deserve it more than him but he could not take it. He said if we wanted to get them any Christmas presents that he usually gets them gift cards for red wing boots. He said he has not been able to do it past few years because of the economy and after the job, they did need them. He still sends us Christmas cards and so do we.
