Recent Review: We had GR General Contracting install a gas fireplace in our basement. They were very knowledgeable on the product and offered a couple of options I never had thought of. After choosing the proper unit, they had built a base, installed the fireplace and built a surround around the fireplace that looks like a piece of furniture. I can't wait until colder weather to enjoy it. On top of the look of the unit, this will now help heat our home due to the unit that was suggested. This is our second job with GRGC and will continue to use them. After seeing our finished product, our neighbors are now having one installed by them as well.
Recent Review: Dan came out to give me the estimate and was onsite to do the work with a helper. Very easy to deal with, very professional and took time to explain everything and answer all my questions. On time, very pleasant, got job done quickly and took time to help give me tips on lighting and using the fireplace. He was a bit better in price to other estimate I had gotten and much above in quality and professionalism. I would definitely recommend him and use him again.

Recent Review: The service representative Erich B. called to inform me he was approximately 20 minutes away and was on time. He was thorough in his inspection explained clearly what was needed and set up a second appointment. He covered the area to protect floors, had a second man to help complete the work in an efficient manner. Installed new gas logs, new burner system with a pilot remote and resealed smoke chamber. I would highly recommend this company and I felt the cost was appropriate.

He patched the fireplace where gas pipe was removed and removed the downstairs gas fireplace connection.

We were very pleased with the work of Derrek H. and the A-1 crew. He was prompt, professional, and took the time to carefully explain the problem and the possible options that would address our situation. A-1 was also careful to ensure that the project was completed in a timely manner without fear of any ash or dirt from the fireplace being left in the area. Most importantly, we were very comfortable with the service being completed as needed and at a reasonable cost. We will continue to utilize A-1 in the future based on Derrek's thoroughness and professionalism.

Very well! Technician was very courteous and knowledgable. We've never had a gas fireplace before and he was able to show me how to work it, how it's set up, etc. and answered all my questions about safety, etc.

Services were performed as described. Inspection identified several items which service tech recommended get done. Those items had an estimated cost of $1200 which included $400 to reseal two chimneys at the roof. These estimates seemed high so I declined these services.

AChicago Gas Lines
Not only did Chicago Gas Lines install my new gas fireplace beautifully and efficiently, they were kind, easy to work with and very helpful. My furnace pilot light went out and Ryan walked through step by step on how to turn it on to get it running again and knew exactly how to walk me through versus waiting for someone to come out. That type of knowledge and service is amazing and truly grateful for his expertise to get it going again. Thank you, Ryan!

This is the 4th project in our home we've hired Ed to do for us (he's also done hardwood flooring, built a mudroom, and siding, including matching old brick); we like what he does so much! In this case, we replaced an electric fireplace and some Ikea bookcases with a gas fireplace and proper built in cabinets to match. From initial discussions, ideas about the design, he was great about bringing up information or ideas we didn't think about, like making the mantel top stone instead of wood so it would be more durable. He really thinks things through and makes valid suggestions. Ed and his team did another fabulous job. He went so far as to search high and low to find marble for the fireplace and mantel that was white marble with beige instead of grey - not an easy thing to find, but what I wanted. This is what we love about having Ed work for us; he's meticulous, he takes his time and really researches what can and should be done. He also spent time figuring out the fireplace selection I'd made online was one of the best we could have chosen, and ensured his stone workers knew just what was what so they cut the marble in such a way to really highlight all the details. We love how things turned out! It looks so great. Ed also took some tall Ikea bookcases and solidly put them together so they are now finished out like custom built ins as well. Ed even cares enough to notice things not related to the job - he pointed out that the front door to our house was improperly installed and was crooked, then fixed it. How many contractors do that?? We totally recommend him and consider him our "go to" guy for major home projects.

Provider arrived on time. He was very cordial and knowledgeable about the workings of gas fireplaces. Explained how to safely turn off and on gas for flame. He removed a lot of soot. Fireplace looks beautiful.

Cleaning, inspection and instruction went well. Unfortunately, a very irregular problem came to light after the service call. There was a leak in the keyhole. The owner explained the need repair in detail via telephone. I will utilize them when I am ready for this project,
