Recent Review: i had met with five companies total for our porch and siding. Some estimates were one or two lines of explanation for a $15000 job. The Siding Group gave a very detailed, complete bid which covered everything they would be doing. Mr. Borowski spent a lot of time going over the product choices, the details of the installation. We then decided to go with them for the porch, and the process for that bid was just as complete. The crew showed up early, prepared for the day and then started at 8 every day. They worked quickly and efficiently. The owner of the Siding Group stopped by frequently to make sure everything went smoothly. The crew cleaned up daily. The porch and siding are beautiful.
Recent Review: It went extremely well. Adam returned our inquiry promptly and then worked around our very hectic schedules. He listened to what we wanted and designed the perect space for us. The job went smoothly (from permits to carpenters, electricians and inspectors) and was completed two days ahead of schedule. [There was already a foundation in place (7ft x 12ft) from a deck that we removed, so they used that footprint reducing the cost of the project.]
Recent Review: He was very good. He was very nice. I would have wanted to call him back. He was very personable. He took time and listen to what I have to say. He was reasonable with his price. People should try him, give him an opportunity to give a code.

Recent Review: Chris worked on building our new front porch project directly and was the most reasonable price of the multiple quotes I received. Didn't have a lot of reviews but I took a chance in spite of that after meeting multiple builders. He was responsive throughout, and quality of the work is great. I'd recommend contacting him for any porch or deck build.

Recent Review: The contractors were very professional. They came on time and worked diligently on the task at hand. They were so awesome they even provided some things we did not ask for. For example, we did not have a banister that lead to our basement from the outside, they built one. They even gave us a trellis under our stairs. They worked so hard, that they even worked through high winds, rain and hail. These guys were great! Hard working, kind and considerate. I can not say enough good things about this company. They deserve extremely high marks.
The work was done very well. The repaired treads are better made than the weather-beaten ones when they were new.

Contractor came out to look at the work. I only wanted part of the porch repaired. Estimate was more than I expected.

Mark was very easy to work with, fair, and provided quality work. He took time to ensure he would complete the job in the best way possible and we are confident our porch will last for a long time.

I have no complaints about the porch repair. However, after completion of the project, Jacek Lawrenz (owner) friended me on FB. Thereafter, he posted a meme on my FB wall publicly criticizing my decision to take my 9-year-old son to the Women's March in Washington. He consistently posts "fake news" from sites like "Eagle Rising" and "Silence is Consent". He has attacked women, muslims, and other minorities on FB. If you are against this type of bullying and abuse, I suggest finding another contractor.

At first I contacted Bald Eagle, which I found on Angie's List. For some reason Bald Eagle could not do the job. Cahill, who was recommended to me by Kevin of Bald Eagle, came out to assess the job, and a worker returned to break up top surface of porch and stairs and brick facing around porch and replaced with "new" concrete. When frame was removed, rough textured swirl patterns were left on the facing around porch, which were supposed to be smoothed out, but they were not. Two years later the surface concrete on the stairs is chipping as if someone has been hitting it with a hammer. When I contacted him in June about the current condition of the porch, Cahill claimed that the chipping was caused by the salt used to melt snow. However the chipping on the stairs started before the bad snowfall last winter, which I explained to him. He said he would come back to take a look, but I have heard nothing since I made the phone call last month.

This has been a nightmare. They were all over the sale, but abandoned us after that. The worst part was that they used our $15,000 deposit to fund other jobs. Then they ignored us. We contracted with them on June 4th. Then nothing for a month. When pressed they sent us an incomplete porch drawing. It showed three concrete piers under the porch, but none under the house, which is the reason for the repair! As of August 4th they had not even come to our house. When I started asking for our deposit back Rob Cechinni, the companies owner, told me that we had to wait for other projects to be completed first. I believe that is fraud. He also told me he had to fire staff that were embezzling from him. He has put me off for weeks now. His company phone goes to an answering machine. His cell drops right into voicemail, which is full, and he won't respond to a text. The matter is now with my attorney. Honesty is always the best policy -- this guy didn't even show up. Consider them Pathetic Exteriors. I told him to do the right thing here. He has not, so until I get my money I'm going to make it my personal mission to share my experience with others. Next stop -- the Better Business Bureau, then full page ads in the local papers in Mchenry, Algonquin and Carol Stream. Look for my Pathetic Exteriors Facebook Page, my Pathetic. Exteriors gmail blog, etc.. You give your hard earned money in good faith and all you get in return are excuses. I wish you much better luck than I have had.

DAL was very professional and knowledgeable. There were some items that I could not decide on at the time, and DAL followed up with advice and an additional offer of help. I ultimately decided to hold off until a later time.

Fortune has a wonderful 5 year warranty. Three years after they repaired key elements of my porch I thought the drainage was adversely effected by the restoration, causing water to run down one side on the brick of the house. They installed gutters, fixed the mortar, and repainted as part of the warranty. Near the end of the project, I began to realize that this was a problem with the original design of the house and not a result of their work three years ago. Once I realized my mistake, I tried to pay them, but they refused. I will be using them again in a few years for total painting of the exterior of the house.
