Reviews in Chicago to Building a Pergola

ASilver Hammer Construction
Robert from Silver Hammer rebuilt our pergola. He was very thorough in inspecting the project, explaining what needs to be changed/repaired and what does not. He followed up daily on the progress. He followed up diligently, stayed on budget and delivered an excellent pergola for us to enjoy. I would definitely hire him again.

AShala Construction Inc
Vince, Tony, and their father completed our new composite deck, pergola, garage, and a few miscellaneous carpentry jobs I needed taken care of. They are the most conscientious, quality oriented, competent, accommodating, polite, and kind contractors I've ever worked with. Their attention to detail is amazing (and I'm picky). Once they began the job, they worked quickly to complete it. I called Vince this week to tell him about a problem with my electric (I cut the line to my garage on accident), and he came as soon as he could and fixed the problem on the spot. Shala Construction is a class act, and I would hire them again in a heart beat. In fact, they will be remodeling our bathrooms this winter. Don't hesitate to use them and you won't be disappointed.

Kirsten was diligent in ensuring our project was exactly what we derived. The work was timely and first class. The company operates well and the higher cost/quality came.

Marshall and his team were punctual and professional. His prices are very reasonable, and the work was excellent.  The pergola looks fantastic. Even though it was a fairly small job, Marshall assigned a big team to the project and completed the work in two days. I really like the fact that when he begins a job, his team stays on the job until it is complete. We are planning to hire them to do some bathroom and kitchen remodels next.

Leonard and Nate were very capable and professional. As it happens pergola itself (from another vendor) was not as advertised. Wound up being too large for the space. They put the unit up - and when it became clear it was not going to fit, they took it back down and put it back in the box. They could tell I was disappointed, and even tried to figure out if there was a way to make it work. I may wind up building my own structure- if I do, I will have them back out. Some of my siding got cracked when they were carrying up the pieces of the pergola. They told me the company would be out next week to repair it. I will follow up here to let you know how that goes.

AARROWHEAD BRICK PAVERS
Estimate and bid:  From day one Arrowhead was prompt, courteous and attentive to all my questions and concerns about installing a new patio.  I worked with Jaime (Jim) and he was the complete professional during the estimate walk down.  Jaime provided a fair and open quote with no pressure.  He answered all my questions and was prompt to provide information upon request.  Arrowhead provided a proposed design and upon request made changes as I specified.  Understanding that they were part of my bid selection, they provided the information fairly and once again, did not conduct any pressure tactics and only offered evidence of their work.  Pre-work:  Arrowhead ensured everything was ready per contract.  They also ensured that the village permits were obtained, LOCATES completed, and provided an update before the work was to begin.  1st day of work, we performed another walk down to cover the items of the contract and things were set.   Actual work:  The work started on date specified and the entire process was explained with the foreman.  It was a big job and they worked very hard.  They were diligent to clean up as it does get dusty and were attentive to any watch areas for safety aspects.  As the work continued, Jaime was in contact to see if we had any questions about the work.  Even my emails once sent, which I would expect to get answer the following business day, were immediately replied back with a phone call to discuss.  Emails to the office were almost immediately returned (no longer than a business day).  The promptness made the experience very relaxing.  Even some minor install items that did come up that were not how I fully expected, Jaime quickly resolved any my concerns without question.  He ensured it was done as I expected and the foreman also solicited my review and approval before proceeding.  Pure professionals. Work finish:  Final touch-up items were discussed and completed.  All work was reviewed with Jaime and foreman prior to contact finish.   Overall outstanding experience, great people to work with and excellent work.  I would definitely do business with them again.

ATLMC Landscape Contractors Inc
If you are looking to do a brick patio on your home-TLMC is the only company you need to call. Words can not express how happy we are with the work Tony and his crew completed for us. Tony came highly recommended to us by our next door neighbors. We were immediately impressed with Tony. Unlike many other companies that send a sales rep out, Tony personally contacts you and walks you through every step of the process. He came out to our house and attentively listened to our wish list.  We told him we wanted a brick patio with a brick enclosure for our grill. We let him know that we eventually would like to expand and needed a design that would allow for that. Within  a matter of hours, he sent us a design with landscaping that blew us away. We knew this was the guy for us. The project was completed quickly and efficiently. His crew was respectful and conscientious of our property. We loved our new patio and we received many compliments on it from our neighbors and other landscapers.. This year we called Tony to discuss expanding the patio and adding a pergola. Once again, Tony took our idea and ran with it. The design he created was beyond beautiful. It was a work of art! I tear up every time we go out to our outdoor oasis. We never imagined that we would have something so breathtaking. Tony made our dreams come true and we are forever grateful. Tony is so passionate, enthusiastic and knowledgeable.He absolutely loves what he does.  He truly has his customers' best interest at heart. We never felt like just a number working with him. Tony is a perfectionist, detail oriented and an artist. He is not satisfied until he knows you are  completely happy. This is exactly the type of person you want to entrust with your outdoor dreams.

AQualtier Construction & Design, Inc.
We wanted to expand our outdoor living space deciding on a cedar pergola. We met with Frank discussing our ideas and showing him pictures of what we liked and Frank took it from there. The timbers were delivered and after inspecting the wood Frank called and said there were 2 warped and cracked beams that he would not use and the project was delayed, but only 2 days because he handled the situation quickly. This is not an ordinary Pergola it has massive timbers and is attached to the house actually going in to the wall, he also had specially made brackets that he designed that look great. It also has a Canopy on top made by (Shade FX).Frank had never heard of them before but he worked with them and when it was delivered spent countless time on the phone with rep to insure a proper installation which turned out very good. After some frustration he had the company send two of there men from Canada to make what turned out to be some minor adjustments. The end result is an awesome looking Cedar Pergola with a Canopy that opens and closes for Sun and Rain right out our patio door.

ARINDA WEST DESIGNS
Just one employee came out to draft the design. We visited with them over a couple weeks. They provided a few plans within a week. We then had to wait a couple weeks for the contractor. She is also a botanist so she filled the flower boxes. The floral choice was phenomenal. She is really easy to work with. She is very prompt with getting back to me. You should expect professional service. I've worked with a lot of companies and sometime it's difficult to get a hold of someone, and the best thing is how quickly she responded.

Recent Review: We had an existing, oddly shaped patio in a very uninviting backyard. The space is southern facing, did not have enough shade, and no visual interest. Our family never hung out in the backyard, let alone entertained guests there. In addition to the strange shape, the patio was surrounded by an A/B pattern of bushes -- yews and barberry (thorns!), all grown together like some kind of barbaric medieval hedge. We'd lived with this terrible back yard for about 10 years since we bought the place. On our own, prior to contracting Poul's, we tore out the bushes to "clear the slate", and then we stared at it for awhile, trying to imagine what it could be. My imagination said "outdoor rooms", but I wasn't exactly sure how to make that happen. After reading the great reviews, I called Poul's to get a feel for how they would approach a project that I knew was going be a challenge. On that initial call, I could barely explain what we were looking for, but the person on the phone listened politely and said we needed to talk with a designer. So they sent Andrew to meet with me and provide estimates. Andrew came with a lot of ideas, patience, and enthusiasm for the project. He came up with a plan that entailed keeping but expanding the existing patio. He gave us options that reflected the desired budget vs the "dream" and patiently answered questions and "what ifs" until we got where we needed to be. He also discussed ways to phase in the project over time to deal with budget constraints. Ultimately we decided to spend more and get the project where we wanted it to be so we could enjoy it right away. We put off lighting for example, but went ahead w/ expanding the patio and adding a pergola. I'm very happy with how it turned out. Like others have written, our designer was professional, responsive, punctual, and knew his stuff. He has the skills of a landscape architect, but pays attention to the details, such as my desire for low maintenance plantings, and he thinks about what plantings are like now but also what will happen when they mature years from now. I know that should be a given, but I just want to note that he cared about longevity. He checked in frequently once the work began and had his crew redo portions of the paver work at his request, not mine, because he's a perfectionist, which of course is fine with me. He  took full responsibility for the quality of the work every step of the way. The crew was polite and from what I saw, they worked really hard. Once the project began, I never had any doubts it would be completed in a timely manner and that all details would be attended to.  There were a few problems, but that is to be expected with a project this size, and they were promptly addressed. A few of the pergola rafters were bowed. They were replaced at no charge and we were advised to hold onto the final $2k owed on the job until that was taken care of, which kind of impressed me. Instead of the pink roses specified in our plans, yellow ones were planted. That correction took a few weeks, but it did get fixed and the right roses were well worth the wait.  The old patio had some sinking pavers and uneven areas, which they regraded and fixed. The project included removing and reconfiguring some of the existing pavers, plus interweaving a consistent border around the new pavers and the old which makes  it seem like it was designed comprehensively all along. The beautiful transformation of the backyard has changed how the whole house feels. The "outdoor rooms" look amazing from the vantage point of our indoor rooms. I had my doubts about whether we'd ever be able to love our backyard, but we do.
