Recent Review: Pete and his team were professional, courteous, punctual, and responsive. They were fast and efficient. Like the company's name suggests, the painting was accurate and beautiful. Pete was very nice and also gave us some suggestions on house maintenance. Would surely hire him again.
Recent Review: Job was supposed to begin on the 11th and finish that same week. Igor and Gary arrived prepared to do the work. Unfortunately, when they opened the package containing the shower base, it was a right drain and it should have been a left drain, so they couldn't go any further. In addition, when they pulled out the old shower stall, we discovered that the floor underneath was rotted out and had to be replaced. Apparently the handyman we hired to put in that shower (about 25 years ago) was not as professional as we had thought. We received the correct shower base on Saturday, the 15th. Fortunately, Handyman Pros was able to schedule Igor and Gary to come back the following Monday morning. They fixed the floor, put down the new floor tile, and installed all the new items. We asked Igor if he would install a new exhaust fan. He had time so we called the office to add that to the job cost. There, too, the job wasn't as simple as we had thought due to the age of the original fan and the way it was installed. We were given the opportunity to see the job as it progressed and Igor had sound advice when we had questions or decisions to make. They were both punctual and pleasant throughout the week in spite of the problems that arose. The completed bathroom is beautiful. We are very pleased. We were also pleased with the cost. We got three quotes and Handyman Pros pricing allowed us to add a new vanity and toilet when our original plan was just to replace the shower. Part of the savings is because we ordered the items ourselves and had it delivered to our home. That worked well for us. We will definitely call Handyman Pros for future work. The office was pleasant and helpful, too, so it was a good experience all around.
Recent Review: Every individual Handyman & Mrs. helper employees within each specialty I’ve used isn’t better then the last. Super nice and personable, all knowledgeable on their craft. Some have even let my dog out during the day for me! You can’t put a price on peace of mind, I trust this company and although you could probably price shop for something lower, this company will do the job right and of a super high quality!
Recent Review: I had some extensive damage in my rental townhome due to an ice dam back in February. After contacting perhaps a dozen companies, Top Notch was the only one to not only call me back right away (one other company took 2 weeks to call back - yeah, that's the company I want to work with if this is the response time I get BEFORE you even have my money), but they also didn't immediately say that my job was too small (because I didn't have a $50k+ gut remodel for them). Michael suggested I first work with the HOA to get the roof repaired to try to ensure this does not happen again. After about a month, I contacted him again to arrange for a walk through. He remembered the job and details right away which was impressive to me. He also allowed me to purchase the materials myself and didn't give me a spiel about not being able to warranty the materials, not being able to pick them up, etc. like I've had before with other contractors (even though they were from the same supplier he would use). When they started the job, they stayed on task and within the time frame they estimated. Pawel was the lead on the job, and he was incredible to work with. He went above and beyond in his work, and his team came back on the weekend to make sure it was done in time. All of the work was done with my tenant in place, and he even offered to help her hang some of her pictures (obviously not a part of the scope I was paying for). I am definitely planning on calling Top Notch again for any repairs/remodeling in our current and future rentals or our personal residence.
Recent Review: As the owner of a firm that purchases and redesigns residential properties using sustainable materials, I hired Mike's company to repair and refinish a white oak floor that was significantly damaged. Mike quickly assessed the situation and proposed an optimal repair solution that minimized cost. After replacing the damaged boards and refinishing the surrounding floor, even a trained eye could not spot the former issue and the entire floor looked brand new. In an unfortunate era where it is tough to get contractors to return your call let alone provide quality service at a fair price, Elite Wood Floor Renewal is a breath of fresh air. They are now my primary "go to" company for wood flooring solutions and I have used Mike for multiple projects.
Recent Review: We could not have asked for a better experience with Samanco. Dan was incredibly responsive and helpful; Richard was amazing in leading the crews on-site; and the guys who showed up every day, working incredibly hard, met every expectation we had. Our two new bathrooms are beautiful, and the new wood floors are stunning--including two stairways, the entire third floor of our townhome and refinished wood on our second floor. It's hard to believe this is our house! We will absolutely hire Samanco again!
Recent Review: WE ARE VERY PLEASED WITH THE CALIBER OF WORK, THE TIMELINESS OF SERVICES AND THE ATTENTION TO DETAIL THAT ALL THE CRAFTSMEN ASSIGNED TO THE JOB EXHIBITED. ALL WORK WAS DONE IN AN EXCELLENT WORKMANSHIP LIKE MANNER, AND THE PROJECT CAME IN EXACTLY ON BUDGET EVEN WITH MINOR CHANGES HAVING BEEN IMPLEMENTED IN MID PROJECT.
Recent Review: Howard gave an estimate of work to be done. Because of the weather the floor was refinished two months after the painting. I was amazed at how well the painting and refinishing looked and the workers did such a great job. Would definitely used them again.
Recent Review: Our design consultant Kathy Harvey exceeded our expectations. Homewerks was not the cheapest option for our remodeling job but was certainly the best value . Not only did the job come in on time and on budget, Kathy stayed with us every step of the way in getting us the best price on options and working with the contractors on any design changes. The best part is how she was our contact person to resolve any issues, and there always are w any project of this size, and how she made this the most stress free home remodeling job to date. I have used different contractors on my basement, my patio, and finally my bathroom and the bathroom job w Kathy was by far my best experience. I would certainly use her again.
Reviews in Northbrook for Natural Stone Tile Installation
ACSI-Absolute Clean Inc
The contractor showed up on time, performed the work without problems and it still looks shiny a year after! If you have natural stone floors, I highly recommend using CSI to seal them.

The team was incredibly professional, timely and pleasant to have working in our condo. I work from home, so it's of utmost importance to me to a) feel comfortable with who's working in my house and b) still be able to take calls and have a quiet work environment. The end result is exactly what we anticipated and would certainly use HFB in the future.

Johann was very responsive to our request for an estimate. He came out and provided an honest assessment on work, providing us with two different options for tile repair. While he wasn't the cheapest estimate we received, we felt most comfortable with his experience and knowledge level. The final work product was excellent. He and his crew were very prompt and also very clean. They covered everything in the bathroom to ensure the dust would be kept to a minimum. Overall, it was a very good experience and we would definitely use him again.

Greg was FANTASTIC from start to finish and we will be using him again for our other two bathrooms next month. Greg was professional, timely and he is a perfectionist. We just moved to the Fallbrook area from Illinois and bought a home that needs remodeling. My husband is pretty handy and we thought of doing the work ourselves but we needed help on the shower flooring to ensure no leakage would occur. I originally called Greg to give me an estimate on just the shower floor. He came to our house and while he was at the house I asked him for a full quote on the whole project. I was extremely happy with the Greg's professionalism and price so we contracted Greg to the whole project instead of just the shower floor. After watching Greg work on the shower and trying to get our crooked house straight I am so thankful we did not take this project on ourselves. He also did extra things that he did not include in his quote such as picking up my stone tile from Oceanside due to the fact I needed a truck which I don't have. I was so comfortable with Greg that I let him work in my house by himself and he would always lock up when he was done. Greg is an exceptional honest hardworking man and my husband and I are looking forward to seeing how beautiful he makes our next two bathrooms!

They were very good. They were very responsive and quick. They were experts in their field and we had no problems.

The installation went well. However, since I used natural stone (each tile is unique in texture, coloration), I regret not being there during the install. They did remedy my issue and replaced several tiles. After all is completed, I absolutely love my flooring and backsplash! And when I do my bathroom, I know who to call!

VIP was great to work with. They helped us with sourcing some unique materials along with extensive design/layout help. Their prices were very competitive and they can find anything!!! We had one piece backordered, but everything else was delivered in about a week. I highly recommend them.

AFRANK ZANOTTI TILE & STONE CO INC
THEY WERE GREAT TO WORK WITH; LARGE SELECTION OF CERAMIC AND NATURAL STONE TILES (MARBLE, TRAVERTINE, ETC.), VERY HELPFUL STAFF, ESPECIALLY FRANK ZANOTTI HIMSELF. THEY DID A GREAT JOB TEARING OUT OUR OLD FLOOR TILE, THEN RELEVELING IT, AND INSTALLING NEW CERAMIC TILE. TILE WAS INSTALLED OVER WIRE MESH AND CONCRETE AS OPPOSED TO PLYWOOD, WHICH MAKES IT MORE STABLE AND LESS LIKELY TO SAG OVER TIME. THE BACKSPLASH TILING IS ALSO BEAUTIFUL. THEY WERE ALWAYS ON-TIME AND RESPONSIVE TO OUR NEEDS. THEY DID A GREAT JOB OVERALL, AND WE RECOMMEND THEM STRONGLY TO OTHERS.

I have looked for a countertop and stone under counter contractors for a couple of years. I go to all of the home shows and see all of the available vendors. How do you know who is the right one? I sent out 4 bids to resources that I found on Angie's list and Avanti Stone was one of them. Avanti Stone was the 2nd lowest bid, so I had Maurizio Cucinella - owner of Avanti Stone visit my home to finalize the details and layout of the bid. After 10 minutes I knew that Maurizio knew his stuff. I gave Avanti Stone the contract and everything went well. Maurizio coordinated the install to happen after my replacement windows were installed, and showed up on Monday morning, at the promised time. The installation happened on time, the workers were clean and courteous, and I could tell that they were professionals. The project went well and both my wife and I are very pleased.with the result. Avanti Stone and the Maurizio Cucinella Tean get an A+ for their design, installation quality, and attention to detail. Tony the stone guy is incredible with his ability to lay out, space and install a complex stone and glass mosaic pattern. The team left my kitchen clean every day when they left, were professional in every way, and Maurizio was involved at every step. Avanti is now "My" stone & countertop Contractor. You couldn't pick a better Stone / Tile / Countertop Vendor. They are the best. Tom Koenen - Carol Stream, IL

AGrout Works of Northern Illinois
We were quite impressed with the work done. Although they weren't able to complete the shower it was not for a lack of trying. We have a walk in shower with Slate and Marble that has years of soap build up. The technician tried numerous remedies and called corporate to check before each one. The soap scum would not budge. Even after all that effort and time, Grout Works did NOT charge us for work they could not do. They were able to clean the rest of the natural stone and grout in the house which looks great. We have three German Shepherds who have done a number on the floors in our home, so we think the outcome looks fantastic. I would highly recommend them. Great work and even better customer service!
