The soundproof drywall along with the rubberized sound proof layer worked like a charm. We used to hear everything from the neighbor's house!! It was horrible. After the job was done by Dirk's crew, the only thing we can hear is door slams but no voices, coughs, music or anything. Worked great and would totally hire again. Price was very reasonable and Dirk and his crew were fast, professional and efficient.

IN MY TWO-FLAT THERE WAS A LOT OF NOISE HEARD BETWEEN THE FIRST AND THE SECOND FLOOR. I HAD TROUBLE FINDING COMPANIES WHO SPECIALIZED IN SOUNDPROOFING, SO I DID RESEARCH ON MY OWN, AND LEARNED I NEEDED TO FIND A DRYWALL COMPANY TO INSERT INSULATION. OF THE COMPANIES I INTERVIEWED I WENT WITH A-1 CONSTRUCTION. HENRY MARTINEZ WAS MY MAIN CONTACT. HE WORKED WITH ME TO FIND THE TYPE OF INSULATION I REQUESTED (WOOL), AND USED RESILIENT CHANNELS IN THE CEILING TO INCREASE THE SOUNDPROOFING CAPABILITIES. HE WAS WILLING TO IMPLEMENT MY SUGGESTIONS EVEN THOUGH HIS COMPANY HAD NOT DONE THIS TYPE OF ''SOUNDPROOFING'' WORK PRIOR. I ALSO APPRECIATED HENRY'S COMMITMENT TO HAVING HIS CREW DO A GOOD JOB. I DISCOVERED BEER IN THE FIRST FLOOR WHERE THE CREW WAS WORKING. I REPORTED THIS TO HENRY, AND THE NEXT DAY HE FIRED THE PERSON RESPONSIBLE. I WOULD RECOMMEND A-1 TO DO YOUR DRYWALL WORK.

My basement ceiling was awful. It was a drop ceiling and some tiles were missing and others were badly stained due to a water leak that the previous owner never had fixed. The ceiling was lower than usual because the basement has a lovely hardwood floor correctly installed over a plywood subfloor. Additionally, there were too many can lights and they were located in odd places. The basement was not a place anyone wanted to spend time. I needed it be a welcoming space because the view is great and it is a walk-out. Salvador and his team did a great job. It is absolutely lovely. It is now a great gathering place. It was all done in 4.5 days and that includes paint and drywall repair. Would absolutely use them again. Very, very prompt and did a fantastic job

AUltimate Drywall Inc
I asked two contractors that I trust (HVAC and Home Inspection) if they knew of any drywallers that they trust and both gave me Ultimate. I contacted Bob and he responded immediately by meeting us at a current job site and allowing us to take a look at the quality of work they did. We were impressed. What was so neat was their use of this new TuffHide Technology by USG. After they tape and sand, they spray on the TuffHide and it's basically ready to paint (effectively eliminates all the issues with primer coats and the costs associated with wall prep and application). All at a price much cheaper than it would take to actually paint it. My designer is VERY particular about the vendors he uses and he was absolutely impressed with their pricing and quality of work. He demanded they glue and screw all drywall and they said that's their normal process. Needless to say, my designer will use them for future jobs. Bob and his team were very contientious and did a great job. They'll be coming back to finish up a few nicks here and there that occur during trim and cabinetry install, but none of these issues is due to Ultimate's workmanship. Just normal issues that arise. I recommend Ultimate to anyone. They do great work and work with you to make sure it's done right. Great outfit!

It is hard to find a contractor who takes soundproofing in a residence seriously, or who can really offer much of substance. But Mike Ibarra from Soundproof Chicago has thoroughly figured out the art and science of soundproofing, and has matched it with top-shelf customer service. His predictions to me were very accurate: after soundproofing, we experienced a 50% reduction of footfall noise, and a close to 100% reduction of airborne noise (TV, music, conversation) from a unit above us. The project was messy and involved (also things that Mike had predicted) but he and his team had taken a lot of time to prep the house beforehand, and the place ended up looking better than before he had started. And it is certainly much quieter! A few things didn't turn out as I had hoped, and Mike was right there to resolve everything. He went above and beyond to make sure that every detail was the way I wanted it. I give him the highest possible recommendation.

They did a great job. The walls look great and a casual observer might not notice that they aren't drywall. The ceiling is a drop ceiling and I had thought I would need to remove it because it was unsightly and stained, but they primed and painted it and it really looks great.

Luis and Elvis came on time, did a great job of installing the material I had purchased, cleaned up, and threw away all of the boxes. I have used this company many times to have handyman services completed. They do a great job and are very fairly priced.

Removed a wall in the kitchen, levelled the floor, straightened the walls, removed dropped ceiling, installed drywall, moved HVAC ducts, installed plumbing, wired the complete kitchen added a washer/dryer hookup in a closet. Price was great, quality was outstanding! Somewhat slow to start but worth the wait.

The whole process was easy, Walter took care of everything we needed. The workers were friendly and tidy and the work was done in the time promised. Our basement looks amazing!
Recent Review: Great team to work with! I had to wait a few months for the work to begin due to their schedules. Once ready to start I had to ask for them to work around a large yard party I was hosting. They were very flexible and made sure the house was not torn up for that day. Everything was done cleanly, drop cloths used on the flooring and everything put away at the end of each day. I thought it would be more disruptive and was surprised to see how smoothly everything went. They were very flexible with things I wanted to change and helpful with suggestions to the design. The workmanship was excellent and the teams paid attention to detail.
Recent Review: From my own assessment, it seemed the water in the closet had to be coming from the roof, so I set out to find a company for repairs. Trela was my first call based on other reviews on Angie's list. Its so nice to have a overall superior experience to report!! From start to finish, I give Trela Roofing an "A." I received a prompt call back from Robert the company owner with a thorough discussion of my issue. I had an onsite assessment and estimate within four business days and a team on site within another ten days. WIth record rain this Spring season, roofing work is challenging to schedule and complete in wet or windy conditions. Trela did their best to schedule my job, given that I had an active leak. A reoccurence of the leak will be the ultimate test, but based on my iexperience with multiple contractors during and since the building of my home, the Trela team was knowledgeable, professional AND efficient. Once the team was on site, they offered a very understandable explanation of the planned repairs, as well as some additional observations about the likely contributing factors to the leak. I was very impressed with their willingness to make suggestions and not just accept a homeowner's request (aluminum door frame rather than a painted one), but they also looked beyond the scope of the immediate problem to perform some preventative maintenance (extra caulking in some other vulnerable roof areas). Clean-up was very complete, including vacuuming along their walking path inside my home. They even adjusted some minor hardware that was knocked askew during their work effort. I'm not able to comment on the competitiveness of their pricing as I didn't pursue other bids. While initially I had a little sticker shock, I feel good that I received top workmanship. Well done, Trela team!
Recent Review: Three coats of drywall patching were used to patch three holes in a kitchen wall. While the patches dried, the broken board in the fence was removed and replaced with a new board. After that, the drywall patches were sanded, primed and painted with touch-up paint. We were very happy with the work done.

Recent Review: Our basement looks gorgeous. Matt was so nice and responsive. The work was ahead of schedule and stayed within the proposed budget. Matt was also amenable to making changes when there was something I didn't like for the woodwork, and he gave suggestions about flooring and light that I wouldn't have thought of and turned out to be better than what I envisioned.
Recent Review: Project went very well although it ran over estimated time by a few days. Tim and Roberto were great-very skilled and took great care with my home. They cleaned up every day before they left. My home looks fantastic!
