Contracting reviews in Chicago
Two guys did the entire job. 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!)

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!
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,
And not incidentally, when
I would not recommend using these guys. From my experience with
I guarantee you he will not challenge this review because every word of it is true.
