Chicago Remodeling Contractors Reviews

"We went under contract in early October and were shooting for completion of work by Thanksgiving. The final punch list items / payment were exchanged in late January. My one caveat here is that we did make a few changes to the original plan and agreed for the work to be completed by Christmas.

to the review by the real-estate agent, the quality of work that Catalyst did was largely outstanding. However the communication, project management, trash removal and respect of personal space were all sub-par.

As an example of poor communication, I was asked to not txt communication to the development team...instead call or e-mail, which I was happy to do. Funny enough, while traveling overseas on business, they were in need of a payment from me and I received two text messages.

At each phase of the job, having no material experience with major contracting work, I did a

eye inspection and found small things that weren't caught by the project manager or construction team (installed doors had no insulation / caulking around them, shims still left under the door base, etc.). All of these were remedied during the punch-list process. There was a lingering sewerage smell that intermittedly came from the bathroom. After explaining this to the team, they opened up the wall and found a small leak in the bathroom sewer pipe. I was delighted when this was resolved! Broadly, I would have guessed the Catalyst team would have found these issues themselves.

Few of the subcontractors cleaned up their trash - things left behind after work was completed included: large pieces of insulation board, soda cans, gum wrappers, cigarettes, several paint cans, all cardboard boxes from lighting/fixtures/etc. My bathroom was used and left in poor condition (you can use your imagination there) and several soiled hand towels were thrown away.

On the topic of paint, I did ask for the names / brand of paint used and was told to look at the paint cans in my basement; not the best response. Ultimately, they did provide this detail in an e-mail...a

answer to what I felt was a fairly easy request.

I did feel a little nickel-and-dimed on small changes...for example, I was asked to choose paint colors (at an inconvenient time of day) with their painting subcontractor

. There wasn't great lighting in the house, and one color I admittedly selected was way off. When I asked that they simply paint over it using another color selected for the

share of the home, I was told the cost would be an additional $495.00 and this was to paint over roughly 40sq ft. I was then offered a $495 credit if I signed up for the kitchen / basement project. They ultimately waived this upcharge, which I very much appreciated.

That said, during demolition...their team accidently threw away all the interior doors while painting was taking place. In good faith, Catalyst replaced all of them (at their cost) which was greatly appreciated.

for the quality of work, but their communication and respect for the homeowner’s space needs to be improved. I would consider using Catalyst again, but will also consider other GCs.

"I had a previous attempt at one of these with another provider and it was a disaster, so Angie's List helped me to try another one thru someone else.

from IBuild was right on time and I could tell that he knew what he was talking about through and through. It was a pleasure to work with someone that understood what I was looking for and also knew how to match up vision with measurements, etc. I received the 3D drawings and layout and there were right-on with what I was looking for in my quirky bathroom.

"As always, the ever pleasant Art arrived as scheduled to provide a complete estimate for a bathroom remodel. Plumbing, Drywall, Tiling etc etc. I was under the gun to get the project done and Art assured me that it could be done in 3 days! Needless to say, I was pleased as can be. Unfortunetly, I was not able to start any of the work due to limitations of an old house, a piched roof where I want a shower, and the onset of a brutal winter. be that as it may, Art completely understood putting the project off and has assisted in every way possible to find a soluton to my shower woes. :) We'll be back in touch and the work will get done! I want to point out mention of another review of Arts demeanor - I totally think the person does not understand comments made in fun whatsoever and needs to lighten up just a tad - that's my own personal opinion."

was prompt in sending and responding to messages to plan the odds and ends work we wanted completed. On the scheduled day, he called ahead to let us know he was on his way. He was polite, understanding and came up with solutions for the things we wanted done, like cutting through sheet metal to create an opening so we can more easily change our furnace filters.
We also discussed our dressing room with him, describing ideas we had for it. He gave useful feedback and a prompt quote for the additional work.
We felt comfortable and confident in his work, will definitely consider

"1. The initial inspection for an estimate at a $30,000.00 budget went well, while the two gentleman were present, the estimate was never provided.
a. The electrical panel needed to be replaced, some of the wiring needed to be redone, demolition needed to be done and some reconstruction as well. Floors needed to be refinished and painting needed to be done.
None of this happened. The estimate was never provided and we ended up finding a different residence. Follow up calls were not returned...
Not a great way to conduct business.
2. A second location was inspected by

, who is the owner of
Chicago Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked

Not a very good way to serve a potential client. Time to look elsewhere....

. did a phenomenal job from start to finish. The crew was on time, courteous, tidy, and professional. The work was done impeccably. I wasn't sure how the moulding would look around the windows, and they made it look like a piece of art. It made the room look so rich and upscale. If I ever need any home projects done in the future, I will call
