Ron has done many home improvements for me over the years and has helped to make my home look great! He has done everything from electrical (changing all my lighting in my house and one of them was from a 2 story entry way Yikes!), plumbing ( new kitchen sink, garbage disposal and sump pump) to adding crown molding and glass to my kitchen cabinets and now they look custom. He is friendly, prompt, very fair pricing, very knowledgable in all home improvements and best of all he is a perfectionist. He will not leave the job until it is perfect and the customer is very happy. He did new tile in my mom's kitchen and now she loves him too! I've delt with many contractors over the years and really Ron is the best.

There is something special about Andrei. He is nothing like the contractors I was used to working with. From the first time we met during his estimate, he immediately stood out as professional yet very approachable, honest and detail oriented. No contractor has ever come to an estimate wearing a suit, breaking down the big project to individual tasks on the spot, and pricing each task individually as we spoke. And his price was truly reasonable. Andrei and hist partner Andrei had a rather big task on their hands - gut-rehab my master and second bathroom, and tile my foyer. I am a picky person, and I wasn't sure if I could find somebody to go along with my anal nature and constantly changing mind. But Andrei listened to all my needs and worked with me like a friend throughout the whole project. I wanted a modern curb-less linear shower drain for my master bath. Some contractors that came before Andrei have never even heard of that. He instructed my plumber on where to relocate the drain, and the rest was all Andrei. I wanted a double vanity instead of the single vanity and Andrei again worked with my plumber on relocating the toilet so we have space for a double vanity. The Andreis drove the whole project from start to finish, unlike many contractors which will leave you the last 10% for you to figure out. We had a few bumps along the road, such as having to wait on some tiles for a week, but the Andreis were very accommodating to our situation and they worked around our schedule. I'm sure I'm forgetting something, but I hope you get the picture. No contractor is perfect, but Andrei comes really close to it. Best of luck to you my friend!

Fernando and his brother did great work and their prices are very fair! They did a backsplash for my kitchen and it looks amazing. They took the time to cut the tiles proper and paid attention to detail, rather than cutting corners like a lot of contractors would. I plan on using Handsome Finish again for future work. I highly recommend them!

We hired LoProstis to assist with a water heater issue in our home. Brian, from LoProstis, called us right away for an initial consultation over the phone, and within an hour, he arrived at our house to explain what went wrong and the course of action needed to repair the water heater. We appreciated his honesty and the accuracy of his quote in order to fix the issue, but more importantly, we appreciated the education that came along with it. Not only did Brian install a new water heater in our home; he also help us to select a reputable brand, based on his recommendation and hauled away the old water heater. He did not compromise on his professionalism to charge a higher fee (given the fact it was a weekend and one of the coldest day of the year), nor use that as an opportunity for a surcharge. It's very rear to find an honest contractor and who's willing to do the right thing, and Brian has both. He exceeded our expectations and got up and running within hours. We would definitely hire Brian again. Thank you for your hard work and excellent service, Brian.

If we could give six stars we would! Karol showed up on time every day, his work was great, when he faced an unexpected problem he dealt with it in a professional manner. His workers were also very professional, polite and efficient. We have worked with many contractors over the past four years and Karol was far and away the best. We have recommended him to friends, that is the highest compliment.

We couldn't be happier with Jeremy and J&S Exterior! He came out and advised us about what he could do with our siding both repairs with painting or siding. Then left it up to us which way to go with more information than we had been given by 4 other contractors. We chose the siding and it is beautiful and done with professionalism and on time. Thanks 😊

I needed to have some work done in the house. Raul the general contractor from Ram Renovation was referred to us by one of our neighbors who just completed a kitchen remodel with them. Needing some work done in the house, we decided to give them a call since their kitchen came out really nice! We received previous estimates from 4 other contractors and Raul was the last to meet with us. After meeting with the other contractors we weren't looking to change the layout of the kitchen, until we met with him! Raul opened our eyes and gave us ideas that no one else bothered to show. For the second meeting, he came and showed us a 3D design of the new kitchen layout. We opened a wall and made use of every space possible. Our new kitchen remodel is amazing, it totally changed the look of the house and now everything flows well together. We really enjoyed working with Raul, he has a great team and their work speaks for itself. I love it and I think it makes the house so much more beautiful!

Stayed home from work as I expected him. Calls me 30 mins to an hour before expected arrival and says he can’t come until next week. Need this to be done ASAP and now have to start all over with new contractors. Not happy primarily because I stayed home from work to accommodate his arrival.

Mike was one of the best electricians and all in all contractors I’ve ever worked with. Respectful, honest, and knowledgeable are just a few of the characteristics I’ll use to describe our interaction. He’s no my new “go-to” electrician for all of my home needs. You absolutely will not be disappointed. The best! Go with him.

Kris helped with repairs and upgrades for everything from dry wall, painting, hardware, installation and more. His work showed exceptional craftsmanship. He was able to make some challenging repairs to correct problems from a prior contractor. After that difficult experience with the other contractor, it was a big relief to have someone so skilled and reliable. He was clear about timing and punctual which was very much appreciated. Besides that, he was just a nice person who seemed to care very much about the quality of his work. I have asked Kris to do additional projects for my home and would highly recommend him.

We'd had several contractors come out to quote the price to fix our deck that was in need of repair. All the other contractors only wanted to quote a complete tear down and rebuild - it wasn't worth their time to do less. David came out and quoted us exactly what we were looking for. He was out the next day and completed all the repairs/refinishing within a week and at a fraction of the cost of other bidders. The deck looks like new again.

We needed to remodel a bathroom, which had not been touched in 35 years and included a leaky toilet leading to a damaged floor. We sought bids on Home Advisor. Two independent contractors responded in addition to Sears. I met with each to describe the project’s goals, namely 1) to repair the damaged floor, 2) to ensure no further leaks from any pipes or the toilet, and 3) to remodel and update the shower, vanity, floor tile and walls. We were really impressed with Bruce Filipiak of Genesis Construction from the very first meeting. It was clear that he understood the scope of the project and had the experience to do the work, while cautioning that the extent of the exact damage was unknown until they floor could be removed. We met with Bruce at least twice more BEFORE we signed any papers – he was willing to advise us as we delved into the details of designing our new bathroom. After resolving all initial issues we signed the contract with Bruce and looked forward to getting started. We expanded the scope of the project a few times on our own and a couple times on Bruce’s advice. For example, we decided that we also wanted to replace an unrelated exterior door and Bruce accommodated that request. We also decided we wanted a built in the wall shelf in the shower, and again Bruce told us he could do it. Bruce agreed to receive the shipment from Menards at our house. Bruce advised us on the potential additional costs when necessary. He found a couple electrical wiring issues that he fixed as well Once the job was started, Genesis Construction worked clean. The downstairs floor path was taped down to protect it, plastic sheeting was put up to minimize dust spread, and the stairway carpet was covered during the workday. Once the bathroom floor was removed Bruce let us know what damage had to be repaired and preceded to fix it. Everyday we marveled at the progress. They started when they said they would and the project finished in a reasonable time. It looks beautiful! When we sat down to settle up at the end of the job, Bruce produced receipts for everything purchased to accomplish the job. We are very happy with not only the work Genesis Construction performed, but also the way he helped us through the process, and letting us know what decisions and choices we needed to make. We definitely recommend Genesis Construction and Bruce Filipiak.

I hired Jose to do work on my bathroom and kitchen for me during the week of 8-11-14. In my bathroom, he replaced the tile floor, added a new vanity, medicine cabinet, and shelving units. In the kitchen, he removed the countertop as I was going to be charged extra from HOBO. He did an outstanding job! The cost was affordable and he did the work in a timely manner. He also let me know as unexpected issues arose. Most of all Jose was friendly, clean, and knowledgeable. Only small critique would be for him to have appointments earlier in the morning. I would HIGHLY recommend Jose to my friends and family members. I will also be calling him in the next few weeks to work on some other small projects around my home.

From the estimate, to the roof tear off, to the install, to the insulation and duct work, the job was done professionally and clean.

I had a problem with my electric in my home. My dining room light and sockets all died and I had two other electricians before using Dan St Mary come in and they were unable to find even the root of the problem, much less fix the problem. I was referred to Dan and called him. He was at my house the next day and showed up on time and took his time and found the problem. He offered to fix it on the spot and I took him up on the offer. It took him over 4 hours to remove fixtures and test sockets and he was very patient the entire time and was not in the least frustrated. He explained what he was encountering in terms that someone who knows nothing about electric so that I understood what was going on. I was worried he'd never be able to figure it out or as each hour went by, wondering what he would charge me. Once he figured it out, it turned out that it wasn't even the dining room that was causing the problem, it was my bedroom fixture, he had it fixed and was very reasonable in his rate. I was so happy. I've been a year with no lights or sockets in my dining room and Dan was the only one able to figure out the root of the problem. If you are looking for someone who is patient, explains so you understand and takes his time. Not to mention reasonable rates. I would highly recommend him as your man. I paid others just to come out and tell me after taking down my dining room ceiling fan that they couldn't help me. Those two times I paid for nothing is more than it cost me to have Dan come out and fix the problem. I would definitely use him again for electric or any other things that he can fix and refer him to my friends and family now. Thanks, Dan St Mary!
