The following is the original complaint I wrote to the Better Business Bureau & my response to Kordecki's response to my original complaint:
On Sept. 9, 2013 I spoke on the phone to
1. Fix the leaking pipe under the kitchen sink
2. Patch the hole in the garage wall caused by employees of
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
"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
My response to
I would like to begin my response by reiterating the fact that
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.

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.

The second project came several weeks later since we were indecisive over choosing the design elements and finishes.
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 "
The plumbing- he put in a new sink for us. We also had our sewage back up and he helped rotor it and cleaned it all up for us. And even gave me a few helpful tips on how to help prevent it from happening and on how to keep the smell out.
Drywall repair- our house is old, so some of the plaster has chipped. He helped by patching and painting it for us. He does it all!"
