Reviews in Northbrook to Remodel Fireplace
The finished results exceeded my expectations. The new fireplace has become the focal point in the living room.

We used Habitar for both the design phase and the construction phase of our fireplace project (completed October 2019). MacKenzie (designer) was friendly, knowledgable and really helpful. She helped us visualize possibilities and offered expert advice. She was patient when we had questions, which made the experience less stressful for us. We then used Zane, Sebastian and Will for the remodeling of our fireplace, which included building it out (essentially taking out the existing mantel) and adding stone/tile on all sides. They also also added a small niche with an electrical outlet and ran conduit through the wall to hide all of the cords to our DVR/gaming/internet devices. The construction phase went INCREDIBLY smoothly. The crew showed up on time, worked efficiently and cleanly, and were done in the amount of time they estimated. At the end of each day, they checked in with us. One thing I especially liked was how responsive Zane was once the project started; we changed our minds about the location of the television, and it was incredibly easy to talk to the team here and make it happen. I would highly recommend Habitar. You might pay a bit of a premium, but you are getting design and construction teams that communicate and make sure the customer is satisfied. We will definitely use them again in the future.

I can't say enough good things about Windy City Fireplace. From the moment my wife and I walked in the door, Roger was absolutely incredible to work with. Knowledgeable, insightful but most importantly, not pushy at all. He knows his stuff and he truly went above and beyond to help us with our purchase of not only our fireplace doors but also our brick veneers. After our new fireplace doors were delivered and installed I immediately noticed that they seemed to be out of alignment. Roger personally made multiple early Saturday-morning trips to our house to diagnose the issue and he ultimately felt the best course of action was to replace the faulty doors through the manufacturer. Most places will do everything they can to avoid this drastic course of action because it's a hassle but Roger knew this was the best solution and there was no questions asked. After the replacement doors came in, Roger personally installed the doors himself and was even kind enough to leave me with a few spare veneers I had requested, "just in case". Long story short, there are numerous fireplace stores in the northern suburbs but hands down, this was a great experience from start to finish.

They were very helpful, and knowledgeable of their product. They walked me through picking it out when I went into their store. They came out to my home to help me find the proper place to install it.

I signed up for my chimney to be cleaned and the guys were prompt to get in touch and respond. During the cleaning they alerted me to an issue I was aware of but kept putting off. The original chimney chase was in poor shape and needed to be reworked. It stung like heck having the work done but it's fire, so, fire. I was thoroughly impressed that the guys went above and beyond when installing the new chase. I watched them from the window while they caulked every nook and cranny on the entire chimney exterior, and nailed in every nail within reach on the roof. He even bought me a little time by applying clear silicon to an area on the chimney that was suffering from water damage from the roof. Also they trimmed back some branches that were getting close to the top. Top notch guys right there.

They installed a new fireplace unit capable of heating our apartment. They had to redo dry wall and tile. Absolutely wonderful job.

Andy and his team from the back office to the teams that he had on-site were extremely professional. We asked quite a bit from them in a small amount of time and they were able to get everything (and some add-ons) accomplished with high quality work. Their communication throughout the project was very responsive and we appreciated how they had no issues working along side other contractors that were there at the same time. We went with HMMH for this project because they offered so many services under one point of contact and it proved to be extremely valuable to us. I give them my highest recommendation on quality, communication, and dependability.

The showroom is the only one within a 25 mile radius of us. They have many many products. We selected one and were advised to pick something different for our particular situation. We are happy with our new selection and it was in our price range. They showed up promptly to measure. We were told 3 weeks--it came in 5 weeks. We had to dog them to get an installation date. Always courteous--but they should call the customer. Installer showed up after the two hour window given. We had to call the installer back THREE times--as it was not fit properly. We paid the $99 dollars for the installation. The installer did not follow the installation instructions that we read after he left the first time. The installer showed up well after the two hour window given on both of the next two occasions. Shop owner never called us to see if we were finally satisfied. We are not overly fussy people--for that amount of money--you expect someone to know how to install it. Product is fine--customer service and installation and follow up are not.
Recent Review: Prior to the recent purcahse of my home (build 1938), my home inspector raised concerns regarding the fireplace and chimney. I contacted Lindemann for an inspection and cleaning. The cleaning and inspection was very thorogh with the camera inspection showing significant gaps in clay tile lining as well as missing mortar within the smoke chamber. The technician took considerable time preparing my quote for repairs along with an extremely in-depth explanation of the repairs needed. I was very impressed with this detail and every question I asked was met with courtesy and professionalism. The repair was sscheduled in short-order and completed two weeks later. On-time and on budget. Great work by the crew and the free firewood for life offer can't be beat. I'm now enjoying my new fireplace worry-free.
Recent Review: Illinois Home Improvement has been a pleasure to work with. From the planning and weekly meetings with the owner to coordination of work with the office staff and finally the workmanship of the crew, this is a very professional skilled construction operation. They take pride in every aspect of the work and have been responsive to all of my requests and change orders. The owner Eric Wrobel had a lot of great ideas to help prevent future maintenance issues and save money in the short run. If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn't change a thing. I would recommend Illinois Home Improvement to anyone who is serious about doing a quality remodeling job or home repairs.
Recent Review: arl, i wanted to take a moment to thank you and your team for incredible transformation of our kitchen. As soon as we met you we knew your company was perfect for us. The price was much lower than other fabricators. You, and your team was on time, very neat and clean on jobsite.It was pleasure to work with someone of your caliber. Your honest, patience, attention to detail and superior craftmanship are very much appreciated. We will be happy to refer any of our friends to you for granite needs knowing they will get quality work at reasonable price
Recent Review: Dan and his co-worker did an awesome job with my fireplace! He had to connect to a gas line, install a key into the floor (even matches my decor) and helped me decide what logs would be the best fit for my home (size, color and heat output). He didn’t try to sell me the most expensive items either. Fair prices, friendly, punctual and quality work! I would hire again and recommend. I really enjoy my fireplace now!!

Recent Review: They were outstanding. We are very happy with the result. They had good customer customer service and the installers were very competant. We couldn't have asked for more in a contractor.
Recent Review: I dealt with the owner Erik. Very professional and knowledgeable. He kept me up to date and arrived on time to complete the install. I have the Valor Retrofit Insert. Works great and keeps almost the first entire floor very comfortable.
