Recent Review: Steve was great! He got the job done and then some. He went out of his way to fix some small things that were wrong with the drywall that was hung by a friend. He kept in touch and arrived on time. Real nice guy!
Recent Review: Keith was professional and did the job per specification. Arrived on schedule with an assistant, performed the teardown and installation of new drywall within 1/2 day, and with little to no evidence of drywall dust from work performed. I'm not an expert with drywall pricing, but the quality of work was excellent and would plan to use Keith again.
Recent Review: Dave and his workers are amazing. He showed up when he said he would and got to the job right away. Not only does he do an amazing job he also does it in a timely manner. He did a lot of repairing of existing drywall which required blending the ceiling in. It turned out great. He did extras and didn't nickel and dime us to death. He was a pleasure to do business with and we would highly recommend him. We would definitely use D W Drywall in the future.
Recent Review: Alfonso and his company Alande Drywall are great. Not only is Alfonso quick to respond to inquiries, but his price is competitive, his work is qualitative and professional and he is very efficient with his time compared to other drywall companies. I obtained quotes from several drywall companies and Alande's price came in first. If you are looking for someone to do drywall and are having a hard time finding a local Chicago company to do this, give Alande a try; his prices are fair and very reasonable. I have used Alande for a couple of projects (one to drywall a plaster wall in kitchen where I had removed some unattractive wood paneling and other time to patch up some drywall after I had electrical work done in my building. Very pleased.
Recent Review: The ceiling drywall in our living room and dining room was sagging. The original builders of the house did not use enough nail/screws to secure it and used mostly glue which over the years has deteriorated. Ace Drywall had to lift the drywall, secure it was screws, retape and sand the drywall. From start to finish the job took 3 days and we were and have been very pleased with their work. We plan in the near future to have them come back and do a similar job in our rec room.
Recent Review: Called Jim arranged for and estimate. he was on time. We discussed the work to be done, he sent me an estimate which i thought was reasonable and set-up a start date. His crew and himself showed up as expected and proceded to do repairs and painting. they vaccumed and swept each day. He is easy to work with and has been in the business long enough to be able to see problems and rectify then as they show-up. Problems from a previous painter and problems with the ceilings krept up. he took care of them giving 110% to repair unexpected problems and repairs that werent first noticed. he gave me a reasonable adjusted estimate and everything worked out great. my schedule is limited and he work with me to make sure the job was completed timely.
Recent Review: 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.
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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

ATAK Drywall Specialists Inc
This review is well overdue. We have used TAK for 2 projects and have been very happy both times. The first project was relatively small and included patching of our kitchen ceiling after some leak damage. This went very smoothly and we are very happy with the results. The second project was a bit larger and included replacing our basement drop ceiling with a drywall ceiling. Tom was very helpful in suggesting the changes and came through on everything he promised. The work was done on time and with high quality. This second project also included some custom work on a hidden bookcase door. The carpenter was excellent and wasn't annoyed because he had to fix some of my amateur attempts. This finished project is awesome!. Definitely will use TAK again.
