The finished results exceeded my expectations. The new fireplace has become the focal point in the living room.

We used Habitar for both the design phase and the construction phase of our fireplace project (completed October 2019). MacKenzie (designer) was friendly, knowledgable and really helpful. She helped us visualize possibilities and offered expert advice. She was patient when we had questions, which made the experience less stressful for us. We then used Zane, Sebastian and Will for the remodeling of our fireplace, which included building it out (essentially taking out the existing mantel) and adding stone/tile on all sides. They also also added a small niche with an electrical outlet and ran conduit through the wall to hide all of the cords to our DVR/gaming/internet devices. The construction phase went INCREDIBLY smoothly. The crew showed up on time, worked efficiently and cleanly, and were done in the amount of time they estimated. At the end of each day, they checked in with us. One thing I especially liked was how responsive Zane was once the project started; we changed our minds about the location of the television, and it was incredibly easy to talk to the team here and make it happen. I would highly recommend Habitar. You might pay a bit of a premium, but you are getting design and construction teams that communicate and make sure the customer is satisfied. We will definitely use them again in the future.

I can't say enough good things about Windy City Fireplace. From the moment my wife and I walked in the door, Roger was absolutely incredible to work with. Knowledgeable, insightful but most importantly, not pushy at all. He knows his stuff and he truly went above and beyond to help us with our purchase of not only our fireplace doors but also our brick veneers. After our new fireplace doors were delivered and installed I immediately noticed that they seemed to be out of alignment. Roger personally made multiple early Saturday-morning trips to our house to diagnose the issue and he ultimately felt the best course of action was to replace the faulty doors through the manufacturer. Most places will do everything they can to avoid this drastic course of action because it's a hassle but Roger knew this was the best solution and there was no questions asked. After the replacement doors came in, Roger personally installed the doors himself and was even kind enough to leave me with a few spare veneers I had requested, "just in case". Long story short, there are numerous fireplace stores in the northern suburbs but hands down, this was a great experience from start to finish.

I signed up for my chimney to be cleaned and the guys were prompt to get in touch and respond. During the cleaning they alerted me to an issue I was aware of but kept putting off. The original chimney chase was in poor shape and needed to be reworked. It stung like heck having the work done but it's fire, so, fire. I was thoroughly impressed that the guys went above and beyond when installing the new chase. I watched them from the window while they caulked every nook and cranny on the entire chimney exterior, and nailed in every nail within reach on the roof. He even bought me a little time by applying clear silicon to an area on the chimney that was suffering from water damage from the roof. Also they trimmed back some branches that were getting close to the top. Top notch guys right there.

They were very helpful, and knowledgeable of their product. They walked me through picking it out when I went into their store. They came out to my home to help me find the proper place to install it.

Andy and his team from the back office to the teams that he had on-site were extremely professional. We asked quite a bit from them in a small amount of time and they were able to get everything (and some add-ons) accomplished with high quality work. Their communication throughout the project was very responsive and we appreciated how they had no issues working along side other contractors that were there at the same time. We went with HMMH for this project because they offered so many services under one point of contact and it proved to be extremely valuable to us. I give them my highest recommendation on quality, communication, and dependability.

The showroom is the only one within a 25 mile radius of us. They have many many products. We selected one and were advised to pick something different for our particular situation. We are happy with our new selection and it was in our price range. They showed up promptly to measure. We were told 3 weeks--it came in 5 weeks. We had to dog them to get an installation date. Always courteous--but they should call the customer. Installer showed up after the two hour window given. We had to call the installer back THREE times--as it was not fit properly. We paid the $99 dollars for the installation. The installer did not follow the installation instructions that we read after he left the first time. The installer showed up well after the two hour window given on both of the next two occasions. Shop owner never called us to see if we were finally satisfied. We are not overly fussy people--for that amount of money--you expect someone to know how to install it. Product is fine--customer service and installation and follow up are not.

We will be happy to refer any of our friends to you for granite needs knowing they will get quality work at reasonable price
Recent Review: I added a new addition to my house and the old vent system was removed. Russ came out to the house twice to help reconfigure the new venting (Once before the addition was done and the second time after the addition). This was a very challenging process due to the requirements and location. Once we figured out the vent run and the best location, he brought in an excellent installer who completed the job in about 3 hours. Once completed he did a service call and cleaned the system. Very easy to work with and very happy with the fireplace.

Recent Review: My husband and I didn't even know where to start when looking for a contractor to do our patio, nor did we have any ideas about what the design should be. Not to mention, ensuring that we found a contractor that would do quality work and ensure that drainage never became an issue. My husband and I are former condo owners in the city, not the handiest of couples, and also not a couple that prides themselves on knowing how to do any DIY project,. However, I pride myself on doing my homework and being extremely particular and cautious before I make any significant investments/decisions. When we went down the path of interviewing and ultimately selecting a contractor it was quite an undertaking. We didn't know who we could ultimately trust to get the job done not only to our liking but with craftsmanship that will be able to hold up over the years with our severe weather. I thought I had chosen our contractor after I completed 10 different interviews, however, I came across the 200 plus positive reviews of 3D brick paving on angie's list and cross checked it with other sites that provide consumer reviews and wanted to give them a call to see what they had to offer/suggest. Our initial call and all of our conversations after that were with Mike D'aeillo the owner of the company and after our first conversation with him my husband said "we found our contractor". Mike, hands down is one of the most knowledgable individuals in his field. He not only prides himself on getting the job done right, with the best craftsmanship possible, but he also specializes in drainage, which was my husbands biggest concern when we revamped our back yard. Mike not only provided a beautiful design but ensured that he took every precaution in the final project to ensure we would not have any drainage issues. 3d Brick paving is also one of unilocks biggest contractors so they had a display at their corporate office which made my husband and I very confident that this clearly was not their first rodeo. They were actually three months booked after we selected them but the wait was worth it! The crew that was at our house, finished on schedule, were prompt, professional, very courteous and extremely detail oriented. Javier,the foreman, was phenominal. He consulted with me daily to ensure that I was 100% satisfied and his attention to detail was exceptional. I would recommend them to anyone and definitely plan to use them again in the future. I have never had a more positive experience with a contractor in my 18 years being a homeowner!

Recent Review: Dan and his co-worker did an awesome job with my fireplace! He had to connect to a gas line, install a key into the floor (even matches my decor) and helped me decide what logs would be the best fit for my home (size, color and heat output). He didn’t try to sell me the most expensive items either. Fair prices, friendly, punctual and quality work! I would hire again and recommend. I really enjoy my fireplace now!!
