Oak Park Remodeling Contractors Reviews

"I would never recommend this contractor to anyone unless you want a headache and poor service. For my job he hired very poorly trained, poorly qualified and often surly subcontractors to do the work. The HVAC company he employed (although pleasant to work with generally) made many mistakes in installation some of which probably cannot be fixed due to the way the attic furnace was placed and installed. The humidifiers that were part of the contract never worked and they were unable to come up with a solution. In addition, the hvac company was lazy in their installation and never installed a drain

under the airconditioning coil in the attic (I guess I just have to take it on faith that there will never be a leak?) and instead of properly installing the humidifier drain line into the pvc pipe, they cut a hole in the pipe so that if there ever is a leak, we will surely have damage at the level of that hole. Did
Oak Park Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
ever supervise or review the work that was completed or repair work? No. In fact after the first day he was never on the job site except to collect checks.
Oak Park Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
was often impossible to reach and would not return phone calls in a timely fashion. The company he hired to repair floors damaged my dining room table (and he never offered to have it repaired but instead directed me to his project manager to "look at the damage"), and were generally extremely rude when I asked them to cover doorways and furniture (like the dining room table before they damaged it with varnish) with plastic when repairing/patching floor underneath radiators which were removed. They used cheap machines and did the minimum amount of work possible in fact not even finishing all of the flooring patchwork. Another subcontractor came to finish patchwork in other rooms.
From the beginning
Oak Park Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
obviously did not want to have to pull permits to do the job because he knew that then inspections would be required and possible problems would be uncovered. Therefore, despite asking him multiple times about his responsibility to get permits (as per the contract), work commenced without them and not surprisingly, the village found out and charged a fine for lack of permit (at least he paid for this). The plumber he subcontracted also was very poorly trained and caused multiple problems including an attic leak which damaged the ceiling below causing extensive repair. The plumber also for some unknown reason unplugged the ejector pump in the basement and forgot to plug it back in. Result: sewer water back up in neighboring basement bath. The plumber also did not connect the water line in the basement system and that had to be connected by the hvac company later. As if that were not enough, since
Oak Park Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
directed his crew to seal up and repair the holes in the ceiling duct work in the basement before the village inspector could come through, the inspection did not pass requiring them to rip up large sections of drywall, after which the hvac subcontractor had to install insulating tape at all the ductwork seams--which should have already been done-- and repair the drywall again (more time and frustration on my part).
Overall, we paid a lot of money for a lot of hassle, poor supervision, poor installation and a system that never completely worked as contracted and paid for (still don't have a working humidifier in either system) and now we are having to pay a lot of money to a new company to fix their many mistakes.

was terrific to work with and he and his crew did a fantastic job. We're very pleased with the results. We started with a messy, partially finished basement with a very low drop ceiling.
Oak Park Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
had great ideas about how to open it up, clean it up, and make it much more functional. They did such a great job downstairs that we contracted with them to do three other upstairs projects - refacing the fireplace and adding built in bookshelves, modernizing the kitchen by replacing the counter tops and back splash, and building another closet and hallway on our second floor.
Oak Park Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
was great at helping us make decisions about the design and materials we wanted to use. He's got a great sense of design and came to the table with lots of good ideas. His crew was efficient and professional. We ended up adding a number of smaller items to their scope as the work progressed (replacing light fixtures, adding crown moulding, fixing doors that didn't close properly, etc.). They were great about getting to those smaller jobs in the midst of the larger work scope.
We will definitely work with
Oak Park Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
again for future projects and would highly recommend him and his crew.

is a true professional. His crew is respectiful, courteous and hard working. Not only did Element Workx perform the contracting work but

Oak Park Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
& his crew were quite willing to make on-the-fly adjustments to meet our needs/requests.
Some of the design elements we were eager to incorporate (a sliding queen

also takes great care to minimize the impact to daily living when your house is a construction zone. My wife, who was loath to take on another household project while she was pregnant, was very please by the courteous & mindful crew that transformed our third floor over the course of ~2 months.
In the end, the look on the faces of our visitors as we set them up in their 3rd floor suite says it all; they know just how much we appreciate that they have come to stay with us. My mother in-law even referred to it as the '

and
Oak Park Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
. He has done work for us in the past (built closet; replaced all the windows in the house; designed and built three-car garage) and we were happy to put him in charge of the blowing out the back of the house. He gave excellent advice and guidance throughout the process. Neither my husband nor I are terribly detailed-oriented, and relied heavily on

's design sense in the design-stage and beyond, and other more technical recommendations throughout.
Oak Park Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
is well-respected in Oak Park's Village Hall, which is an asset to any Oak Park homeowner trying to get a permit!
The entire project took four months, without the delays that we expected!
He created a temporary kitchen in our dining room, complete with refrigerator, sink with running water, and oven. It was awesome, and allowed for pretty much normal living throughout.
Scope of project: we expanded the back of the house by 13 feet.
Oak Park Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
worked with our architect to streamline the foundation design, saving us a significant amount of money. Enough, in fact, that we could replace the front concrete stoop with a beautiful front porch.
Oak Park Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
's associates are top-notch: the framers, electrician, plumber, and handymen (for lack of better term) were friendly, cleaned up after themselves, and were responsive if we either had questions or a last-minute request to change something. We are very happy with the cabinet supplier - they were easy to work with, delivered goods on schedule, and proved a great value.
We understand from friends who have gone through this that the punch-list can be problematic as most contractors have lost interest or have already moved on to the next project. This wasn't an issue with

. He work through our list without complaint.
He stayed on budget, and kept us informed about any changes due to unexpected issues or changes we asked for that deviated from the original proposal.

is beyond trustworthy, competent and conscientious. He is an artist from vision through execution--without ever taking a
Oak Park Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
eye off the budget . His design for the project was beyond expectation and execution was quite flawless. The vision applied to this project not only added much needed square footage to our home, but really created a wonderful space. I never thought I'd 'love' a basement, but I do!

blends off the shelf solutions--take advantage of Ikea cleverness, special finds, etc.--with hand milled elements for truly affordable yet custom solutions. Ikea workspaces, capped with custom butcher block (matched throughout the space) and corkboard wall covering are perfect for my school age girls. A clever, custom built cabinet with sliding doors created a beautiful laundry disguise. Old radiator piping disappeared with the use of innovative tubing.
Oak Park Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
provided solid electrical, plumping and structural skills and incorporates into really special areas. The team was very open to my ideas, but transformed them above and beyond..
I have loads of cabinets, closets and cupboards and yet the feel of wide open space was created. Details such as molding, window casements, column design and lighting blend with other selections for a unique room. It is functional, well-built, and truly lovely. I really can not articulate the level of pleasure I have with the outcome of the project. My friends and family are blown away, never having envisioned that this "after" could have been created from the before.
Once work commenced, the team was there everyday through completion. The team moved items to the garage, built custom shelving to accommodate my junk and got right to work. The work was done quickly, thoughtfully and neatly. The crew is diligent, responsive and flexible.
Oak Park Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
is patient, knowledgeable, and highly responsive. Work was done faster than expected, the outcome was beyond my wildest dreams, and the budget stayed intact. Really, Straight A work!

does excellent work. When we decided to replace an air conditioner built in to an exterior wall with an art glass window they were our first contact (we have had prior experiences - all top quality - on bigger, more expensive jobs). Because it is a west facing exterior wall we wanted to be absolutely sure to be protected from the elements and also protect the art glass window from abuse (
Oak Park Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
worked with the art-glass window maker seamlessly to complete the job). When it comes to quality construction methods that are built to last, we have grown to trust CWDS implicitly with their recommendations and work. Their proposals are very detailed and meant to provide the best quality results. In short, when it comes to windows, doors and construction needs for our near 100-year old house,
Oak Park Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
is our first stop.
