Going to Angie's List to find someone with an A rating to do a siding job at my home brought me to the Gmart Inc. ad because all 80 reviews were rated A or A+. After reading half of them, I decided that this was the company to do the job. Greg came out promptly and when my son and I told him that we were interested in veneer stone on the front of the house and garage as well as LP Smartside siding, and new windows, he advised us as to how it would look best. He also told us that he would replace any rotting wood and insulation board if and where it was needed. We are very satisfied with the beautiful job that his crew did. Our house looks great and the quality of his work is impeccable. Greg is very accommodating and goes the extra mile to make sure that you are happy with the work done. When finished, his crew cleaned up nicely [like they were never there]. I would definitely call him in the future if I have any more work to be done at my home, and I will refer him to anyone looking for quality work because I can trust that he is honest and the job will be done well. Thank you Greg for making our home look new and beautiful.

I could not have been more pleased. In the process of siding repairs Slovik the repair supervisor found a large nest of bees in the roof / interior wall, to my surprise. He professional removed the damaged areas inside and out repaired interior drywall and exterior roof to wall flashing. Thank god he did such a nice job at a very low price. JAD Exteriors installed a new Pella fiberglass door that looked like real wood with designer cut glass side windows and matching transom top. The price was better than Pella direct. I now have a go to contractor that I like and trust for all my exterior work. I plan to have them do some inside work in the cold months like installing a stone veneer fireplace in my living room and basement.

ASCHWAKE STONE BRICK & FIREPLACE CO
For starters, this is now Windy City Fireplace, restructured part of Schwake. In same location, but apparently company restructured. Angies List did not let me enter it as I wanted to. Project went well from start to finish. Showroom has an amazing variety of stone, well displayed. Robert Greene helped me with selection and pricing. Ordered a beautiful stone veneer and limestone hearth to go over my existing painted brick fireplace. Roger coordinated everything well. Scheduled installation was scheduled for two days, Friday and Saturday. Easier on me, so I only had to take 1 day off work. Masons who came were a father and son. Multi-generation of bricklayers, which is exactly what I wanted. They did a great job of restoring the fireplace and taking out the older gas line. I highly recommend this company for anyone who wants to do a fireplace. Whether its a restoration or new one.

Easy. They gave us an idea of price and setup a time. They were here when promised and got to work. They laid out the stone on the lawn prior to installation and asked for my approval. All went smooth.

COpal Enterprises Inc
My experience with Opal was good until the very end. It started with an estimate from one of their sales associates Ryan who was a great salesman. He sold me on the company, even though they were the most expensive of the five estimates I got. He explained that Opal provides some of the best quality workmanship in the area and as a result they are a bit more expensive. They certainly have the reviews to back up their claims. In hindsight (now that the project is over, and now that I have experience in this type of project) I wish Ryan would have walked me through more of the details of the project and decorative options before we began work. In the end the house looks good. However, there are some finishing touches that were never discussed, such as accessories for the versetta stone, and hence were never done. In fairness to Opal, I never asked about these things. I do think that items such as the accessories for the Stone should have been brought up by them. The crew that showed up to complete the work arrived on time everyday and worked a full day for about 8 days to get the entire job done. The crew did a great job keeping me informed with the progress of the job. When something would come up (such as rotted wood) they would show me and then they would show me the same area after they fixed it. Through out the project Opal gives you a number of people to contact in case you have a question or an issue. Our salesman Ryan and Project manager Steve answered or returned my calls promptly. When the crew finished their work I was able to do a walk around the house and create a punch list of items that still needed to get done. This is were things took a bad turn and is the biggest reason Opal received a and quot;Cand quot; in Overall Experience and Professionalism. When I walked around the house I noticed an area that I wanted to add a piece of trim to. I notified Steve the project manager and he came over that same day to take a look. He did some measurements and said that it wouldn't be a problem. I asked him what the additional cost would be, and he went to his truck to make the calculations. At that moment the owner of the company Voytek Opalski drove up and walked up to me on my front lawn and introduced himself. He proceeded to ask me why I was unhappy with the work. I explained that I was not unhappy I just wanted to add a piece of trim and was willing to pay for the additional cost. He said okay, that they should be able to do that. He then told me (rudely in my opinion) that it would have been easier if I would have told them about this extra trim before they finished the job. This immediately got me a little upset. Of course it would have been nice if I could have told them about the trim before they finished but I didn't know that it was something that I wanted until I saw the completion of their work. Him saying that served no constructive purpose other than to make the customer feel bad. I tried to explain that I didn't know I would want the extra trim because I wasn't sure how the house would look at the end. I told him that some of the little details were not gone through with me so I didn't know what the the finished project would look like completely. That's when he said, and quot;why would you sign a contract with us if we didn't give you all the details?and quot; I just about lost it after he said that. I agree, in hindsight I wish I would have gone through those details before signing with them...I know better now. The job was almost over now though and hindsight is 20/20. I could not understand why the owner of the company was at my house making me feel like a bad home owner and like I made a bad choice. Before he showed up things were going well. Steve was calculating the additional cost of the trim and the work was going to get done. Mr. Opalski needs to either stay in the office and leave the customer service in the capable hands of people like Steve and Ryan, or he needs to learn how to deal with customers. He created a problem where there was no problem by showing up to my house and arguing with me for ten minutes. The sad thing was that there was no one to complain to seeing as he is the owner. I shared my frustration with Ryan the sales associate in hopes that he would share that with Mr. Opalski, but I never received a response or apology from the owner. The argument was so heated and needless that I can not recommend Opal enterprises to my friends, family and neighbors. I can not recommend a company to anyone where the owner displays such a complete disregard for the customer.

John was the only person I could find who was willing to undertake a very challenging repair of an antique mirror by reattaching the very thin ornamental tin veneer covering the mirror. At first blush, reattaching a piece of tin might sound like a simple job, but it could have resulted in disaster if the wrong technique was used because the tin was very old, thin and brittle. That's why two frame repair shops refused to even attempt it. John took the mirror and brought it back looking beautiful, with the veneer reattached and intact.

Martin was extremely responsive and provided first quality work for our condo association. He took on a project that was not typical in that it involved numerous visits to match the veneer that delaminated from our historic wood doors. Martin clearly has the technical knowledge and skill beyond painting in the realm of finish carpentry and wood species.

Gary arrived promptly and immediately set out to perform the work at hand. I had installed my wall cabinets and attempted myself to install the base cabinets, but my uneven floor was more a challenge than I anticipated. I tried the levelling myself and spent 4 hours. Gary did the complete job, including veneers all within 6 hours and then finished up by fixing striker plates on two doors. Very pleased with the results. I have crown molding for the cabinets and a few other minor drywall repairs that I will have them back out again to complete in a month or two.

When I inquired about the job and the price on Monday, Faith contacted me a few hours later. Tom was available the next day. Tom showed up on time and took his time to make sure what I needed done. I came up with the best solution and within 2 hours I had the doors hanging properly and looking good. Tom was profession and had the skills and the tool to get the job done in a timely manner. I have some other house projects that are above my head and will be using Handy Men and Mrs. Helper for my future project.
