Started out great. The contractor was professional and nice. I did more work than the 3 days I purchased and he gave me the same rate going forward. I trusted him after awhile and gave him my spare keys to the building and unit so they could come and go while I was at work and leave the keys on my counter at the end of day. Absolutely had no problems until.....

One day he did not show up and no phone call plus he took my keys home. I called him and sent a text. Usually responsive but nothing. He sent a text that evening saying he would be in touch the next day to reschedule. He said their was an accident with his van and he had been dealing with insurance. OK, I understand things happen but after not hearing anything for 3 days I contacted him with no response. I continued to call and text without a response. Quickly realized he was in the wind and with my keys.

Left him a message that everything was fine just please return my keys. Nothing! sent a self addressed stamped envelope to him and no response. Obviously, I changed my unit locks right away. After awhile I had to notify my condo building and have the building locks changed. It was not cheap.

I genuinely hope he is OK and I believe that is the case. It is sad he could not simply return the keys. No clue whatever happened to him.

These guys were great. I worked with
Chicago General Contractors Provider Name Locked
on the quote. He promised to have it to me as of a Friday, and he did. In fact, he was always on the spot with calling me back and meeting deadlines.
Two guys did the entire job.
Chicago General Contractors Provider Name Locked
told me they would show up at 8AM on the first day and they did. They ended up having to be at my house for about 6 days and I got to the point where I just left the gate/garage open and they were always there, on time, in the morning, working on the job. They put in full days, and always knew what to do next (no micro-managing, no confusion).
I described EXACTLY what I wanted, and they nailed it, right down to the paint color. There were a couple setbacks based on weather and materials, but nothing out of the ordinary for a construction project. And nothing they could have controlled. I would go out to the garage once a day to see the progress and that's it - they literally just cranked it out EXACTLY how I wanted.
I even asked them to do something that wasn't on the original quote (add a .5" conduit and junction boxes in 2 locations in the garage). They picked up the materials the next day from Home Depot and nailed it. No million questions, no confusion - they just nailed it (and didn't charge me extra!)
PROJECT:
Interior of my 2-car garage...
framing of an existing door/window
drywall
patch/paint
molding for door/window
paint entire wall surface
molding/painting of door/window
rubber baseboard molding
addition of an over-head storage attic with wide pull-down ladder/stairs
QUOTE: $3900
FINAL AMOUNT PAID: $3900
Loved these guys and will use them again. For small-medium inside jobs I wouldn't use anyone else.

In 2012, my husband and I bought a house in Chicago that was built in the 1990's. It was evident that the house would require extensive work. we both work full-time and have two young children, so we needed a really good contractor, and
Chicago General Contractors Provider Name Locked
filled the bill. we were able to go to work and not worry about our construction site. We found
Chicago General Contractors Provider Name Locked
to be a real perfectionist when it came to every project in the house. When we wanted to address a problem or make changes in the plans, he was extremely responsive. He also alerted us to things we did not recognize.
Chicago General Contractors Provider Name Locked
's craftsmen and sub-contractors were top-notch, courteous professionals. They always cleaned up the site when they finished their work. In fact,
Chicago General Contractors Provider Name Locked
hired a cleaning crew before we moved in.
Of our five bids,
Chicago General Contractors Provider Name Locked
's was the best. He is very honest. When line items came in less than he had quoted he passed the savings on to us through credits even though we would never have known. We saved thousands on these credits.

build us a house that is safe and sound. We heartily recommend him with no reservations.

Bill is extremely knowledgable of construction and has become our go to guy for our architectural firm. For bidding and for work to be performed. He holds one of the highest quality of craftsmanship that i have seen in the northern Illinois and chicago area. As i am a construction superintendent i have seen a lot of jobs go bad. Bill on the other hand stays extremely organized and sticks to his budget numbers. He is always calling and informing any situations on the job site and is very easy to work with. If you are looking for a honest Sub contractor Bill is your only way to go.

The quality of

Iam very happy with the work . The white paintd finish is gorgeous.
I gave Kryz my ideas and he came, measured, and sent me drawings
that were far more detailed than what i was thinking.Iloved his plan
but had no idea the quality of what i was really getting until he installed
everything. i absolutely love my new room. He and his workers were very professinal
and kept a clean,organized job site while installing everything. It was money well spent!

The provider then indicated that his schedule is too full and he does not have time for me. Then, he indicated that I should contact Angie's List if I want to complain.

HIDE YOUR VALUABLES! DO NOT USE THESE GUYS!
Chicago General Contractors Provider Name Locked
bait and switched prices on me when the first job I contacted them about. He raised the hourly rate saying he would have to do the work and charge me more as a consequence. On the day of the job he sent someone else without any advance notice and did not revert to the original pricing (when the reason for the increased pricing was for specific personnel). They also stretched out the hours unnecessarily by at least 30%. I wasn't happy about this, but was glad the work was done.
After a few months, I called them about another project, expecting I would receive the regular hourly rate. And if so, when spread over two projects, the impact of the cost increase he hit me for on the first project wouldn't have been that bad. Well,
Chicago General Contractors Provider Name Locked
proved to me that his standard operating procedure is to bait and switch on price. He dragged his feet on supplying me with the estimate, and when I received it, the hourly rate was twice as high as what we had discussed and the estimated hours were more than twice as long as the other estimate I received.
And not incidentally, when
Chicago General Contractors Provider Name Locked
was here for the estimate for the second project, he encouraged me to tear down the mirror and lighting and open up the wall in the guest bathroom to get started. I did not do that and with the benefit of hindsight, it is clear he wanted to create a dependency on getting the work done and a sense of urgency, so I would be more likely to agree to his inflated prices and inflated hours.
I would not recommend using these guys. From my experience with
Chicago General Contractors Provider Name Locked
, he will find a way to rip you off.
I guarantee you he will not challenge this review because every word of it is true.
