Sample Reviews


Overall, the project went very well, though it's helpful that I'm a detail-oriented person and stayed on top of the work that was being done. I enjoyed working with both BJ and Ed, and I found their bid to be the most competitive when I was originally looking for a contractor. Much of the work that was done in the house was excellent (they do have some wonderful craftsmen who matched the detail work of our older home). Occasionally, there was work that was sub-par, but when I pointed out, it was rectified. Yes, it took more effort on my part, but I think we got a great deal for the work that was done. I'd recommend them, with those caveats.

is by far the best contractor we have ever worked with. He has a good work ethic, is honest and conscientious. He was extremely respectful of our home. We had just had wood floors installed and he took great care to make sure the floor was protected. He was very prompt and reliable. He always let us know when he would arrive, leave, etc. We can't say enough about how pleased we are with the work he has done for us. In this day and age he is a rare breed.

had to level the floor as the concrete slab had settled below the footing. The original oak molding was retained. The floor was flashed with self leveling concrete. Underlayment rated for use with radiant heat was put in place. The laminate was installed in my family room and into 2 large closets. Shoe molding was stained to match and installed. The job was completed in 2 days. The carpeting and padding was removed prior to the installation.

is not a contractor, he is a home improvement specialist. He treated my home as if it were his own. The floor looks amazing-all planks tight and properly aligned. His ability to level the concrete made the installation flawless.

is great. His attention to detail is superior. On the 1st appointment he provided his thoughts of what would work in my house and make it look up to date. He then brought in sample trim and molding to look at. His ideas were perfect. It took him 2 days to do the work, and at the end of each day he cleaned up as best as he could. He even fixed up some minor issues from the floor installer I had who didn't give as much attention to detail as
Aitkin Carpenters Provider Name Locked
does. I will definitely use him to finish the rest of my house in the future.

Do not invite this man into your home if you are a woman alone in the home. This man was in my house for all of five minutes before he began asking questions of a very personal and sexual nature. I was alone and felt cornered in a back room and was totally creeped out. These questions and comments came unbidden and did not stop until I had him safely out of the house. Needless to say I found someone else to do the work.

Our house was built in the 60's and sort of looks like the White House. We have 4, 2-story columns made of wood that were very rotten on the bottom. I put a shout-out to the neighborhood online to see if anyone had a reputable repair guy because I could not find anyone on Angie's List who specialized in column repair. Sure, I could have called a general repair guy, but I was unsure how they would approach the repair with a large weight bearing load the columns provided. Since our neighborhood has many other houses with the same type columns, I figured there was a neighbor who had some insight. I received a recommendation for
Aitkin Carpenters Provider Name Locked
and soon called
Aitkin Carpenters Provider Name Locked
, the owner. He came out to my home the next day and told me all about my columns. He has over 30 years experience and early in his career he actually worked for a column maker so he is very knowledgeable! He took lots of measurements and returned a week later with 4 rebuilt column bottoms. He secured each column with a device he built while he removed the rotten bottoms and then slid the newly rebuilt bottom into place. His rebuilt bottom was made very well. He even tarred the inside and added ventilation so the bottoms would last a lot longer this time (I wish I could add pictures here to show you his craftsmanship). After the supports were finally in place, he removed any additional rot and repaired the round column. The finished results were fantastic and looks brand new!
I would definitely recommend

and his son,

. He is a family run business and only works with his son. You can tell he prides himself on his work and wants the customer to be happy with the job he does.

The job was harder than

had anticipated. The old flooring was very difficult to remove.

2 carpenters from
Aitkin Carpenters Provider Name Locked
Construction came to my home and inspected what I wanted done. I was given the cell phone number of the carpenter who resided in Lakemoor ( I think it was Wauconda or Lakemoor). I had recently had my daughter, 2 babies and son in law move in with me to help them out . I had to cancel at least twice in November due to sick kids and adults and then again right before Christmas as I lost my job.
I was in regular contact with the carpenter that was going to do the work. I called him and told him not to come out as I had to change my hours at the hospital to stay employed and was working everyday that I could. He did sould like I woke him up and he showed up the next day. I received a call from the office that he had come out and noone was home. I explained to the office that I had indeed called him but he came out anyway. I was transitioning to a new job and could not schedule
Aitkin Carpenters Provider Name Locked
to come out for a few more months. They stopped replying, I have called and I have send messages every few months to rescedule or to please give me my $200 back. I am in need of more that just $200 worht of work in my kitchen and have relayed this to them. I have not gotten any response by phone or my
Aitkin Carpenters Provider Name Locked
message. I am 60yrs old , single woman working full time and then some, I watch my grandchildren on my days off.
I am sorry for the inconvenience to
Aitkin Carpenters Provider Name Locked
, but I don't think that I should have to forfeit $200 to them.

Very high quality work and product. Artistic with tile. Clean and neat throughout the job. Unobtrusive to the household throughout the project.
Came in under budget. Job was managed and delivered very professionally.

I can not say enough good things about
Aitkin Carpenters Provider Name Locked
Little and his team. First I called numerous painters over the two times I tried to get my kitchen cabinets painted (I have approx. 40-45 cabinets). It is so hard to have anyone reply...and then show up!
Aitkin Carpenters Provider Name Locked
was the perfect example of what you hope a contractor to be. Not only was he punctual and affordable his work ethic was great and he did a great job.
Sadly I used someone else before I had heard about
Aitkin Carpenters Provider Name Locked
and they just about ruined my cabinets.
Aitkin Carpenters Provider Name Locked
and his team had to do corrective sanding, patching, and repainting and it now looks fantastic.
I hope to use him again on a rental property and to install some flooring.
