and his crew started with tearing out all old plumbing, sinks, electrical, etc. as needed. This was largely done on day one. They hauled away all the lumber scraps, etc. all through the project.
I think we had good ideas but along the way I often asked
's opinion and he had one good idea after another. I believe he said his wife is a decorator. Maybe he gets some valuable input from her. The experience, knowledge and skill of the whole crew made the outcome as good as we could have hoped for.
They installed two kinds of wall tile, floor tile, specially designed and stained crown molding with recessed lighting (something i saw on their website), shower door, double vanity, toilet, mirrors and all the required electrical and plumbing.
They did faux painting in bedroom, bathroom and the hallway into the rooms. They provided large (about 1 foot x 2 foot) faux paint samples that made choosing the right one easy.
They were on the job, on time, all day, every day. They made significant progress every single day so that every day we were excited to come home from work and see what was new.
The whole crew was a pleasure to be around every day. They laid down canvas tarps on the floors every day and took them up at the end of each day.

We signed a contract with
to perform a total full bathroom remodel within a set 2 week period, meaning the current bathroom tiled floor, vanity, vanity top, accessories, all wood trim, ceramic tub walls and fixtures were all removed and totally replaced in 10 business days!!!! This was a 9 X 6 bathroom that looked like it needed to be replaced and it was old looking.
replaced a bowed out wall with new cement board as well as the floor and tub walls with cement board. He then tiled the tub area with a 2 x 2 ceramic tile with a boarder consisting of a marble chair-rail and a 3 inch border of rough rocks. What a unique look!!! He then carried the border outside the tub to the other walls in the bathroom. He then installed a porcelain 12 x 12 tiled floor. That was followed by installing floor to ceiling tile using 9X14 ceramic granite looking tiles. He then installed all new plumbing fixtures, toilet and a 48" vanity and top. He installed matching hardware on the bathroom door and then painted the ceiling and the skylight enclosure. He finished by sealing all of the material and put up a dreamline frameless shower door. This is a bathroom you would find in a magazine highlighting bathrooms. It is absolutely breathtaking!!! All of this work done at a fair price by a great person.
is a guy you wish you could find to do all of your remodel, repair and handyman work. He is the best craftsman I have ever dealt with and his integrity, DAILY clean-up, and will to satisfy a customer makes him #1...... Thanks

Elgin Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
was very professional. He was responsive to our phone calls or texts . When we had ordered the wrong cabinets,he adjusted his time to accomodate us for further shopping.
The bathroom is very upscale. He had some good suggestions for us that we hadn't thought of, and worked out very well.
I would definitely recommend
Elgin Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
. We plan to have him remodel our basement.

All payments were attained by
Elgin Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
Kordecki in person. He actually came to my gym to get his final payment. He never sent invoices like a normal contractor would. Very unprofessional!
The following is the original complaint I wrote to the Better Business Bureau & my response to Kordecki's response to my original complaint:
Original Complaint:
On Sept. 9, 2013 I spoke on the phone to
Elgin Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
Kordecki, owner of
Elgin Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
in regards to scheduling a time for him to come to my home and fix the items still not complete after paying my contract in full. Kordecki behaved very unprofessionally on the phone, so I told him if things were not going to be fixed I would contact my lawyer.. He said, "don't threaten me" then told me to go ahead and call my lawyer and hung up on me. I went to visit a lawyer on Sept. 9, 2013. He told me to write the company a final letter giving them 14 days to have all three tasks I listed complete. The three tasks were as follows:
1. Fix the leaking pipe under the kitchen sink
2. Patch the hole in the garage wall caused by employees of
Elgin Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
while moving granite
3. Reconnect the house security system to the front door that was disconnected during installation of the front door.
I sent the letter on Sept. 11, 2013. The company is located in
Elgin Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
Heights so they received the letter no later than Sept. 13, 2013. I was not contacted again until Sept. 24, 2013 via email instead of by phone like my letter had specified. I did not list my email as my contact information on the letter I wrote the company on Sept. 11, 2013. I listed my telephone number. Therefore, my phone number is the method of communication that should have been used to contact me. Instead I was emailed on Sept. 24, 2013 by Kordecki with the following:
"2nd mailing if these are items you'd like me to address further, please respond as per this previous email."
The previous email Kordecki was referring to was from September 9, 2013. The email was sent to me and read by me before
Elgin Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
and I spoke on the phone on September 9, 2013. The email from September 9, 2013 is what made me call Kordecki on Sept. 9, 2013 in order to schedule him to come to my house.
Elgin Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
emails disregard his actions on the telephone where he hung up on me and told me to contact my lawyer. To me, it looks like Kordecki was trying to make it look in email like we didn't talk on the phone on September 9, 2013 and he didn't tell me to call my lawyer or hang up on me. My husband,
Elgin Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
, was witness to that phone call and can vouch for Kordecki hanging up on me. The fact that Kordecki told me to go talk to my lawyer and hung up on me on September 9, 2013
Elgin Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
me to believe that he would not be completing the work
Elgin Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
needed to as per our contract paid in full. When I told my lawyer this story, he felt Kordecki's actions meant/said the exact same, that Kordecki would not be completing the work from our contract paid in full. Kordecki wrote me a second email stating he had been proactive in trying to sort this out on September 25, 2013. However, waiting 12 days, 2 days before the 14 days I asked the work to be completed in, before making first contact with me about the work
Elgin Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
had not completed and then using an email address not provided on the letter he received from me on September 11, 2013 in order to contact me is NOT being proactive. It is quite the opposite. It looks like Kordecki is trying to get out of being responsible for the actions of
Elgin Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
in regards to our contract paid in full. It also seems as if Kordecki is completely disregarding that he hung up on me and told me to contact my lawyer. According the my letter I wrote Kordecki on September 11, 2013 I asked that the three items listed be complete within 14 days. Even if Kordecki received the letter on September 13, 2013 I should have been contacted about fixing the mistakes made by
Elgin Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
long before September 24, 2013. I gave the Kordecki yet another
Elgin Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
to fix the items in an email I wrote to
Elgin Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
. I asked that they be fixed by October 1, 2013. These items are still not fixed.
My response to
Elgin Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
Kordecki's response to my original complaint:
I would like to begin my response by reiterating the fact that
Elgin Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
Kordecki, owner of
Elgin Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
., ended the phone conversation we had on September 9, 2010 by telling me to call my lawyer and hanging up on me. His response to my complaint seems to completely disregard his actions. He should still be held accountable for yelling at me, telling me to call my lawyer, and hanging up on me. I believe the reason he chose to write emails to me instead of calling me during his attempts to make contact was because he knew for a fact that I check my email maybe once a week. He worked in my house for months and knew from multiple interactions where he would ask me if I had checked my email and I would say no that I check my email seldomly. I asked him during his time working at my house to send me a text message or call me to tell me to check my email if and when he sent me an email. That being said, I believe his actions are deceitful. He is attempting to make it seem that he has done nothing wrong and was cooperative with me all along when in reality Kordecki and I had multiple negative interactions due to disagreements about how things should be done in the home. In my opinion, he chose to use email to contact me knowing from months of experience of working with me that I check my email maybe once a week. He had both of my phone numbers, and he called me on both numbers in the past (303)854-8293 and (630) 352-1888. He also had my husband
Elgin Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
's phone number (630)880-9788.
Under the Illinois Home Repair and Remodeling Act there is a provision under Section 20 "Know Your Consumer Rights" that says a contractor must print a pamphlet written by the Illinois Attorney General and give this pamphlet to the home owner to sign saying they received the pamphlet if the contract will be exceeding $1000.00. I never received this pamphlet, I do not have a copy of any signatures or pamphlets, and I never signed anything stating I received it. Also, under section 35 of the Illinois Attorney General, Kordecki and
Elgin Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
. have engaged in consumer fraud and deceptive practices. My lawyer,
Elgin Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
, will be sending a letter of demand to Kordecki outlining the ways in which he has violated these Illinois state mandated laws for contractors.
I have attached all the copies I have of the contracts for the kitchen and the front door. I have also attached the letter I mailed to Kordecki on September 11, 2013 that asks him to please use my telephone number to contact me to set up a time for the 3 items listed in the letter to be fixed. I have also attached my responses to all of Kordecki's communications with me via email. I have also attached a copy of the review I gave
Elgin Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
. on Yelp. He mentioned it in his response saying I "slandered" his name. I stand behind everything I wrote in the review. It is not slander when it is true. I had multiple negative interactions with
Elgin Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
during the time he was in my house. The reason the company was in my home for as long as it was was not due to excellent customer service but because they would begin work on another job before finishing the first job. When I finally said no more and asked
Elgin Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
to leave upon completion of the current contract they had to reattach some of the door casings to my exterior doors because they had already began removing them even though no contracts for the work had been signed. As a first time home owner, I feel Kordecki could tell I would be an easy target to take advantage of. My Negative interactions with Kordecki started within the first month his company was working in my home. A business owner should never make a consumer cry by talking down to him or her and disrespecting him or her as Kordecki did to me multiple times.I have also attached photos of of the underneath of the sink that
Elgin Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
installed incorrectly.
Elgin Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
said that he had
Elgin Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
come to look at it and everything was bone dry. When I had a plumber come within 3 minutes he told me there were too many pieces of piping being used and that the piping was bent and not straight because it was the wrong length. You can see what the plumber was describing in the before photos and you can see what was changed and how it was fixed in the after photos. I also attached photos of the damaged cabinet base that the wrong sink piping installed by
Elgin Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
caused. I attached the invoice for the costs of having the sink repaired. I also have attached the invoices for the estimates to repair the alarm and the hole in my garage wall. My lawyer,
Elgin Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
, will be submitting these invoices to Kordecki as well as one other that I do not have yet from having the cabinet under my sink fixed from the damage caused by the leak from the improperly installed sink. I would like Kordecki to pay back what I have had to pay out in order to have repaired the items
Elgin Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
either didnt complete properly or damaged. If there is a fee for having my lawyer send
Elgin Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
the letter of demand, I would like that cost paid back to me by Kordecki and
Elgin Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
, too. I would also like to encourage the BBB to look past Kordecki's manipulation and attempts to make me look like a crazy consumer. Kordecki is pretending like he didnt tell me to call my lawyer and use my email instead of my phone number to get around actually setting up a time for his company to come fix what they had done wrong. It is this kind of behavior consumers need to be protected from.

We contacted
Elgin Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
based on his Angie's List reviews and ratings. He came out and met with us and listened to what we were wanting to accomplish with our kitchen project. He understood what we were hoping to accomplish with both quality and price point. Within a couple of days he provided us with his bid and allowances for each part of the project.
After we accepted
Elgin Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
's proposal, he walked us through the process of picking out each item for the kitchen and promptly answered any question we had. Once construction began, the project proceeded right on schedule and actually was completed several days ahead of the original plan. The subcontractors that
Elgin Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
uses were all wonderful to have in our house and the quality of their work was outstanding. The few glitches that popped up were resolved immediately. The final cost was just as the proposal was presented. The only cost adjustments were the result of choices we made picking out our specific allowance items.
I highly recommend
Elgin Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
and will turn to
Elgin Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
with any projects we have in the future.

I can't say enough about the professionalism and quality of product we experienced.
Elgin Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
Bowman is knowledgeable about every aspect of kitchen product and design. He was always patient, never pushy, listened carefully and produced exactly what we wanted. He introduced us to his remodeler, whose work was perfect and whose attitude was respectful.
Elgin Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
visited often during the remodel. He gave us a schedule at the beginning, which was followed exactly. There were no surprises. We didn't pay anything until we decided to use their services. The price was exactly what he quoted before we began the project.

Provided a free onsite estimate. Came in on time and on budget. Cleaned up all of the work area prior to leaving. Very friendly and easy to work with. Even offered to change some other light bulbs and match a few of our old cans to the new ones without increasing the quoted amount of time to do the additional work. Honest, easy and fair. You can hardly ever put those 3 words together anymore. Well done!

We chose three Angie’s list contractors to offer bids.

Elgin Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
did a fine job in the initial consultation. He listened attentively, discussed problem areas, and offered alternative design ideas that we hadn’t originally considered. We chose
Elgin Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
and Dynamic Remodeling Solutions based on the combination of pricing and overall knowledge level. His price wasn’t the lowest, but it wasn’t materially different from the cheapest and his initial consultation gave us more of a comfort level. The two projects were priced separately and the downstairs project was to be completed first.

After making some last minute changes towards the scope of the work and the wording of the contract we were set to start. The first project went off without a hitch. Within a week we had a new powder room and hardwood flooring throughout the foyer. The work was top notch and everything was completed to specifications. If there was a problem area it was the amount of dust created from the removal of the old ceramic tile. DRS did its best to contain it, but ceramic dust can find a way around most any protection.

The second project came several weeks later since we were indecisive over choosing the design elements and finishes.
Elgin Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
was understanding and waited patiently. Prior to starting we discussed the demolition and dust containment issues. I was quite pleased to see the set-up this time. Doors were taped shut, the carpets and all walk areas were covered, and a special plastic-encased area was built for tool storage.

Again, the finished product was very well done, quite stylish and modern. There was a mishap during demolition causing water to leak through to the kitchen, but this was remedied to our satisfaction. In summary, I would definitely hire
Elgin Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
again and I believe he deserves your consideration for a remodeling project. I can’t say my experience was completely ideal, but
Elgin Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
gets it. He understands a contented client is good for business and he puts in very effort to make things right.
