Reviews in Elgin for Building a Gazebo

ABudget Right Handyman
The Technicians employees were wonderful they did a very great job. How ever I would never recommend this company they gave me an estimated price of two employees for four hours however I was charged over twice as much. The Forman said I should have call to say it was over the fours expected and to let them know if I wanted them to finish or quit. My question was why my responsibility he offered to reduce my bill by $138. Estimate was $562. I ended paying $850. Again I have great respect for the technicians they did a great job but the Forman Sam was unprofessional. I would not recommend this company since they do not know how to estimate. When they under estimate then they stop work if you do not want to continue to pay $69 per employee per hour

AJET RESTORATION & PAINTING INC
We needed restoration work on part of our gazebo which had rotted from water exposure. We also wanted our gazebo stained inside and out, including the roof. John came out and gave us an estimate which was reasonable for the wood repair, but too high for us to have him do the staining (in comparison to other quotes we got). He sent someone out to fix the wood (don't know his name) and he worked very diligently on a very hot day. He did an excellent job removing the rotten wood and replacing it with new pieces to match the existing gazebo structure. I would highly recommend this company to do this kind of work! We didn't think the gazebo could look "good as new", but it does now!

AElite Handyman Services LLC
I was very pleased with the overall professionalism and quality of work that Elite Handym(e)n provided to us. These are very skilled workers who provide all their own necessary tools to get the job done. I really like the fact that they are firemen who work on projects like mine when they are not serving the community as firemen. The were very responsive, punctual, friendly, and most importantly, skilled at the work that was being performed. They worked tirelessly until the job was done. I would highly recommend them to anyone, as I plan to use them again for my next project.

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.

AHandy Men & Mrs Helper Kitchen & Bath
Handy Men & Mrs. Helper were hired to remove a 28-year old deck, reinstall new decking, and install a hard-top steel gazebo. The work went well with a few hiccups. Dan was scheduled to arrive on a Monday but the forecast was for rain that day so Dan did not come in. He came in on Tuesday and started dismantling the old deck. The work stopped when Dan was struck in the face by a board that popped up when he was trying to remove it. He did not return the next day because of the injury to his face. Dan returned on Thursday, only to find a nest of opossums – one mother and ten babies – under the deck. Needless to say, Dan was not happy and the mother opossum was not happy. Dan left until I could get someone out to remove the nest. Suburban Wildlife Control came out that afternoon and removed all the opossums. Dan returned on Friday but the forecast was for rain so no work was done. Dan was supposed to return on Tuesday after the holiday but once again all work was stopped because of rain. Dan returned on Wednesday and continued dismantling old deck and started framing in additional rafter supports, posts, and railings. Once again, it rained all day Thursday. Dan spent the next three days completing all the posts, railings, and trim. Wednesday Dan installed all the decking. No work was done the following day due to more rain. On Friday Dan and Martin returned to set up the gazebo. Work went well and within 5 hours the gazebo was up and the deck was completed. I have worked with Handy Men & Mrs. Helper previously and am always more than satisfied with their work and their staff. The workers are professionals in their field of expertise, are always polite and courteous, and finish all work as required. This project took a little bit longer than planned due to Dan’s first day injury, the nest of opossums, and many days of rain. Because we were working with using as much of the old deck support structure as possible, the actual work on the deck was more complicated than originally thought so some additional time was required. My deck and gazebo are beautiful and I could not be more pleased with the results. Handy Men & Mrs. Helper have once again done a great job.

FBC Designs & Construction
The service didn't go well. Although, he was polite. He started the job in June, and we were told that it would take two weeks to complete. We were approaching Labor Day and the job wasn't completed. He didn't use cedar as was drafted in our contract. We've discovered through other carpenters that he used indoor pine, and that the construction was poorly done. It's been recommended that we have to completely tear it down and rebuild it. We noticed that he didn't buy the wood in bulk, he bought it piece by piece. I think that he was using wood that he had at home laying around. We wanted a fan installed so there would be a breeze when it was hot, come to find out he didn't pull an electrical permit. He always had an excuse as to why he couldn't be at the job earlier in the day or not showing up at all.  I finally told him to not come back.

AR & G Almanza Landscape
The quote from Raul was very competitive. We scheduled his crew for the work, which had to be delayed a few days because of the amount of rain that we have had recently. Throughout the delay, Raul was in contact to get updates on the moisture status of our yard (they couldn't do the grading part if the area was too wet). They were finally able to get the work completed this week. The crew showed up on time, reviewed the plan with us, and were expedient in their work. Their work was high quality. They did an amazing job with the removal of the gazebo and grading of the yard. Our lawn looks amazing! The crew was friendly and accommodating. The results are awesome..we are thrilled. We will definitely be using them again!

Wall patching and painting looks great. Not much to say about the gazebo covers, other than we now have them in the house being stored for the winter.

Recent Review: We had originally installed an aluminum gazebo over our patio and it blew away with high winds in December so we were looking to get a professionally installed pergola installed instead that would be sturdy and robust enough not to blow away with high winds.  We searched Angie's List and contacted Don and he came out to provide a quote and was very organized and professional.  We opted to have larger 8x8 posts and a polycarbonate roof installed.  On 4/23 the pergola was oriented the way we wanted and installed within a few hours and we simply are delighted with the pergola.  It looks fantastic and almost adds another room to the house and enables us to enjoy the patio during the afternoon.  We are even able to be out under the pergola when it rains.  We would recommend Quality Built Pergolas.

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.
