I hired
Kankakee Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
to remodel our dated kitchen. I should start with the good news-- at the end of the day, I think their quality seemed pretty good (certainly not shoddy). I'm not really versed enough in Kitchen Remodels to say whether it was an "A" or B" job, but it certainly looks pretty good on completion.
The bad news was the process it took to get there. I hired them to do our kitchen remodel starting a scant two weeks after our fourth child was born (my wife was on maternity leave and as difficult as it was to do a kitchen remodel
with a new baby it would even be more difficult once she got back to work. I bid it out to four different companies, and while AKB was the most expensive bid (though all were fairly similar), I decided to use them.
With four young children in the house, I was very concerned about the time it would take to do the job.
Our lives were chaotic enough without adding in a long remodel. The clincher for me in going in with AKB was
their owner coming in for the final bid in which he pronounced would take two weeks (complete with a schedule) and that “he couldn’t see any reason” it would go beyond 2 and ½ weeks. I indicated to them the extreme importance of sticking to the schedule and they agreed to put in a provision in the contract saying workmen (plural) would be at the site every day from 8:00-4:00.
The kitchen project ended up taking five weeks (despite the fact that we had zero change orders and no complications that were discovered midway through the job.) These were five really uncomfortable weeks where we had no
access to our kitchen and in many cases had to go outside the house to go from one half of our house to the other, since the only route is through the kitchen. There was frequently only one worker on the job (not the “workmen” mentioned in the contract) and while they sometimes put in a full day, sometimes they only put in ½ or 2/3 of a day.
I was immediately on the case as soon as I saw the schedule
slipping, at which point I was given a detailed fake schedule that AKB had to
know was in no way based in reality. I get that remodeling projects frequently
run late, but I had made a huge point of the schedule up front, and the project
ended up taking 2 and ½ times the length of time promised. I was offered a
variety of excuses but the bottom line is that I am confident that they
accepted this job knowing there was no way they could complete it in the
promised timeframe.
I made clear to them throughout the job that their delays were a huge hardship to my family and asked that they needed to make this up somehow (a discount on the job would have seemed the most natural way—I run a small hospitality
business and on the rare occasions when I fundamentally let down a customer, I make it up to them financially in a significant way.) AKB seemed uninterestedin giving me any kind of discount, to which I can only conclude that they
thought their level of service was acceptable—which it most certainly wasn’t. I wasn’t going to press the issue, because
for me it was more about the recognition that they had been less than forthright and seriously inconvenienced a customer than it was about the money.
In any case, there are certainly others on this list who have had a good experience with this provider, but I was very frustrated and
disappointed with mine. I didn’t feel they were honest with me, and they finished the job inexcusably behind
schedule, causing my family a good deal of hardship at a time at which we really didn’t need our lives being complicated.

It went very well. I know very little about bath renovations.
Kankakee Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
Boelman's advice was consistently focused on customer benefit, For instance: choosing

grade of tile for floor vs. shower walls.
Kankakee Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
Boelman talked to staff at Lowe's to find the best tile (color, hardness & availability of quantity needed) for job. The entire project was done in timely manner.

Dealing with
Kankakee Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
was a pleasure! I visited the showroom and looked at the enclosures and style of glass options available.
Kankakee Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
explained everything and gave me an estimate using measurements that I provided. We then set a date for him to come to my house and do a final measurement. He came, on time. He measured. I opted for clear glass, with an optional coating to prevent water spots. He gave me a date for installation - about a week away (my door had to be special ordered because it was shorter than the ones on hand at the shop). The installation was beautiful.
Kankakee Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
and his assistant were very neat and very professional. I love my new shower enclosure! I would recommend this company to anyone. I especially love the job
Kankakee Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
did because I had had another company in to give me an estimate and that guy told me that my enclosure was too small for the frameless door! He should take a look at what a real professional can do! My door and enclosure are lovely and a great upgrade for my home! Thank you

Since the home has settled over time, getting it just right was a challenge. Nevertheless the rooms look beautiful. All of the crew were punctual, professional, and competent.
Kankakee Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
kept us advised throughout the process of timelines and issues. Everyone cleaned up each day after their work area, and took measures to protect other surfaces while working. I would highly recommend

to anyone who is looking for a competent general contractor who clearly understands the trade and project management!

BEWARE OF SALES TACTICS- Salesman came to my home, looked into my attic, told me the job to install insulation would take at least one full day and most likely 1 and 1/2 days. This was because my old insulation was installed too close to the
Kankakee Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
of my roof and they would have to install extra venting prior to blowing in the new additional insulation I was buying. He seemed very professional and know what he was talking about. His quote was $1,600. I got another quote from a local company that has been around town for many years. Their quote was $800, but they did not seem to think I had a vent issue, and I was told the job would be done in 1/2 day. I assumed they did not know what they were talking about, and was willing to pay more to
Kankakee Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
to do the job right, so I went with them. They showed up on the install day and the sub-contractor completed my entire house in 2 and 1/2 hours! I was very surprised and assumed they had not done what was necessary. I called the District Sales Manager, who came out to my house and inspected my attic. Told me the job was done correctly, did not know why I was told over one day for job, said he would take it up with the salesman. There was no offer to resolve any issue over the misrepresentation. Beware that
Kankakee Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
does not do any work, it is all done by sub-contractors, which I probably could have hired myself to begin with, the sub did a good job, no complaints with them. I feel like I was set up by the salesman. Do NOT use these people, you can do much better elsewhere.

It was great....He did exactly what he said he was going to do, he did it when he said he was going to do it and it took as long as he said it would...My kitchen is beautiful...we love it and are very happy...He is a very nice man...upfront, to the point and honest...all characteristics we like and look for......It was a pleasure doing business with him, and if anyone wants a new kitchen, I will most certainly recommend him.

We moved to Corpus
Kankakee Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
in June and realized within the first couple of weeks that our master bathroom was going to need some help, as it was so small we felt claustrophobic in there. We wanted to take over the adjoining walk-in closet and create a large, open master bathroom that would turn our bedroom and bath into a master suite.
Kankakee Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
was so highly recommended on Angie's List that I contacted them first. They got back to me within about a day and arranged to come out and give me a quote that same week. From the very beginning to the very end, they exceeded my expectations. They are professional, friendly, talented and genuinely care about what you want and what is going to make you happy as a customer, even if it means more work for them or doing things over to make that happen. As with most remodel projects, there were bumps along the way and we ran a little behind schedule because of them, but they never let unexpected obstacles derail our plans for the gorgeous bathroom of my dreams.
I recommend them, without reservation and look forward to using them again for other home improvement projects.

I thought it went well. They were punctual and very professional. Koksal and Faud came out to look at our master bathroom that was already demolished so it's a
Kankakee Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
canvas. Koksal promised to email us an estimate. No one has not contacted us. I called the company this morning at 8:30am EST and the gentleman took my name and phone number to have Koksal call me. Thus far, no response or estimate from the company.
Also, when I set up the appointment I called both United and
Kankakee Kitchen And Bath Remodelers Provider Name Locked
thinking I was setting up an appointment with different companies. Turns out they are one in the same. They promised to email me the appointment confirmation which didn't happen. We thought this company would be excellent to work with, but we will never know since they haven't responded to us.
