Recent Review: My house is a 1922 year old Bungalow, and had NEVER been remodeled. I inherited it and have plans to put it up for sale. I started with remodeling the bathroom, refinishing the hardwood floors through-out and painting. Then, it came time to take  a good look at the sad state of the kitchen. I worked weeks at removing many layers of wallpaper and plastic tile. I discovered the plaster walls were a mess. I decided to put new dry wall up so I would have smooth walls to paint. I had the company that did the bathroom, dry wall the kitchen.  At first I was going to try to put in a few new cabinets myself, but then decided that this job (as small as I thought it was) needed an expert. Crooked walls...etc. I found Damian the owner of 4Ever Re-modelers.  I could not have been happier!  After the initial meeting with Damian he provided me with some great ideas on how to maximize my small kitchen.  He was on time, friendly and very knowledgeable about every aspect of remodeling. I told him I needed to get the house renovated so I could put it on the market to sell, and at the same time I had a small budget to work with. I felt immediately comfortable with his suggestions on how to update my 1922 kitchen! He had great idea's on how to maximize my space. Within 24 hours, Damian drew up a design for the kitchen and had my estimate ready. He was able to start the project within a few days. Lucky me!  He closed off a window in the kitchen with more dry wall so I could have wall space for upper and lower cabinets. YEAH!  When he started,  there were only a few METAL cabinets over a very old sink, no other cabinets.   He closed off two windows in the pantry with drywall and removed and enlarged the door opening. He eliminated the refrigerator in the kitchen and moved it to the pantry.  He added matching kitchen cabinets in the pantry.  Originally, the pantry had only wooden shelves and a small cabinet. His design was great, because he added much needed cabinets and counter space in the kitchen. We also closed off a doorway to a bedroom that was off the kitchen.  Damian referred me to a Kitchen Cabinet Specialist  (she was great and watched my budget as well) and a Granite Countertop Company. All I had to do was pick out the cabinets, granite and faucet for the sink. My husband installed the light fixture.  Damian worked very closely with both the cabinet company and the granite specialist through-out the remodel. The Cabinets took  about ten days from purchase to delivery. During which time I had a all my hard wood floors refinished.  The cabinets  were installed in a day and the Granite  a few days later. Things went so smooth. Timing was perfect from beginning to end. Everything turned out beautifully. Damian was in contact with me almost daily by phone or text message. His crew did a wonderful job, never leaving without cleaning up.  And he kept me on budget! There is never a reason to watch over his shoulder as he is on top of EVERYTHING!  Don't even think of hiring anyone else, as he is the BEST!   The total cost of my kitchen: this does include the initial drywall installed by another company, Damian's design and installation of cabinets, which included  additional drywall, 19 cabinets total, electrical, granite, sink, faucet and light fixture, new stainless steel oven and built in microwave plus a new oak floor was approximately $20,930.00. Painting of walls NOT included. I will admit I am a very picky person, a worry wort, and the smallest of details are important to me.  If you are anything like me DO NOT HESITATE  to hire"4Ever Re-modelers". Thank you so much, Damian!

Recent Review: We are thrilled with our remodeled kitchen that Larry Lambert and Tom Tishbey of Chi-Renovation designed and constructed! The team from Chi-Renovation were excellent to work with throughout the project. Larry and Tom explained in full detail the remodeling process and listened carefully to what we wanted in the new kitchen, our timeframe, and our budget. Their team members were punctual, conscientious, and careful to leave our condo in good order at the end of every working day. The cabinets and the roll-out shelves that were installed have given us more space with better organization than we had before. Chi-Renovation's granite and appliances contacts were very good to work with too. Everything with our kitchen remodel came together on time and on budget and we couldn't be more satisfied. Thank you, Larry and Tom!

Recent Review: GR General Contracting did a fabulous job on our basement. It took us years to save up enough to do a full basement rehab, and we got at least a dozen quotes from various contractors. Most had quotes higher than our budget or we did not feel comfortable with the company. Gordon was the first to provide a reasonable quote as well as give a professional and competent first impression. We found Gordon to be very flexible and accommodating to any changes that needed to be made. We had a number of unexpected challenges on the project (like almost all major construction projects do), but Gordon was there at every turn to discuss our options and help us decide the best route to take. After demolition and at the beginning of actual construction, he was there frequently to walk through with us to discuss the exact specifications of what we wanted. He listened to our requests and offered suggestions that helped us come up with a plan that is nothing short of amazing. His crew was always courteous, professional and top notch. They worked really hard to keep the project from affecting the rest of our house and our life. Any time they knew they would have to shut off the water or electricity, or knew they would be making excessive noise, they let us know ahead of time. They always attempted to keep the project contained, even though there is no way to really keep the construction dust from getting into the rest of the house! We especially loved Caesar and Alfonso! I was so sad to see them go at the end of the project and found myself trying to come up with other things we needed to have done so I could keep them around. No construction project is ever perfect. Most of our problems revolved around the length of time it took to complete the project. This is mostly due to our Village dragging its feet on the permit and inspection process. This set back the start of the project, which in turn screwed with Gordon's scheduling of his workers across his various projects. While our remodel ended up taking almost twice as long as originally planned, we were not in a rush and understood that the permit/inspection process put Gordon in a difficult position. We kept an open dialogue with Gordon and it all worked out. If we would have forced the issue, he could have sent more workers over, but he has different guys that specialize in different aspects of construction. He wanted to make sure he was putting the right person on the job. By giving him the flexibility and time, he in turn made sure we got the best people for the job. He really knows what he is doing, and if you step back and trust him to do the job, you will not be disappointed. His electrician and plumber really knew their stuff. One of the best aspects of the project was the constant communication. His crew was easy to talk to and didn't mind our questions and requests. If there was something we wanted changed or saw a problem with, Gordon was immediately on the phone or would stop by to discuss the situation. We threw a number of changes and increased the scope of work several times, and they always accommodated us. The finished product was everything we hoped it would be. Gordon can do anything from providing full service to allowing us do some of the leg work to cut down on cost. For instance, he could have provided the flooring, cabinets, etc, but we chose to source them ourselves and he took care of installing what we chose. His guys even picked the flooring up from Home Depot for us! In fact, the guys went out of their way to not only do the job right, but to provide little extras here and there. For instance, towards the end of the project, we purchased shelving we were going to install in the closet. The crew ended up just doing it for us. I was having issues with a gas leak on the grill, and the plumber took a few minutes to diagnose the problem for me. Our only big complaint is with some of the small finishing details. To be honest, the painting could have been better. When looking at the overall basement, it is fine, but upon close inspection, there are small things like nail holes visible in the trim, areas of the walls that are not evenly patched/painted, and sloppy trim painting. The lines where the wall meets the ceiling are not crisp. To be fair, if I look around the rest of my house, I see some of the same problems. Really, I think my minor disappointment lies with the fact that the other guys (carpentry, electric, plumbing, etc.) went out of their way and bent over backwards to make sure everything was perfect. They would even redo something if they were not happy with the work, even if we did not notice a problem. So, in the grand scheme of things, some minor painting problems are not a big deal. As we save up for future projects (bathroom remodel, kitchen remodel, etc.), I know without a doubt that we will hire GR General Contracting to do the job.

Reviews for Kitchen Remodeling in Northbrook

AFox Valley Carpentry
I can echo the reviews written by others--Bryan is great to work with and does outstanding work. Midway through installation of a tile backsplash in our kitchen, I realized I didn't like the tile I'd chosen. Bryan was booked ahead for other jobs, but worked us in so he could remove the tile and install the replacement tile I liked much better. He has done work for us before and we plan to hire him for future projects.

I had heard good reviews and name of this business came up in a few Facebook recommendations. I first contacted them about 10 months ago or so by leaving a message on their website. I heard no response back. I followed up by calling their phone number and Elliot himself talked me and agreed to a callback and visit to view the needed work. I never heard back from him. Late last year, I contacted again over Facebook, thinking this has more visibility so I may get a response back. I did and was asked to call Elliot. Which I did, although it seemed odd that me as a customer had to call him and not the other way around when he knew of my interest already. He promised to come over on coming Sunday to look at the needed work. He never called, texted, or visited. I followed up again and Elliot agreed to come over on Friday that week. He did come over, took a look at the work, took pictures and answered a few questions. He said he is definitely interested in getting my business. A quote estimate was promised the following week and I told him to take his time. After he left I texted him to ask for his preferred email for us to exchange information. He never replied. He never came back with an estimate or any other explanation. A business owner that lies to your face and so unprofessional that they do not even know the business communication 101 should earn zero trust and find something else to do. I routinely saw company trucks parked in Libertyville downtown, meaning they were doing just fine but decided to ghost their potential customers. If this is how they treat their customers, I doubt they are worthy of our business and not capable of doing good job.

AKitchen Village
We are thrilled with the results! We have worked with Carol Hasler on the redo's of our master and hall baths and now the kitchen. Carol is wonderful to work with. She starts by understanding what is needed and wanted and then strives to provide the best possible solutions. Her designs take advantage of the good points of the existing situation and then move to improve where ever possible. We removed everything in the kitchen, moved locations of refrigerator and stove, eliminated a peninsula and added an island. The new cabinets are beautifully made and emphasize the height of the room by being taller than the old ones. Once again, the tile work is the signature part of the room (as was the case in the master bath). The backsplash is a combination of glass subway tile, metal rail, and glass mosaic tiles. It pulls the whole room together. We particularly appreciate the way problems are addressed, calmly and with ingenuity. Carol helped with sourcing and selection of all the important materials-granite, lighting, tile, colors, etc. We never feel abandoned. A real plus was reusing one of the discarded kitchen cabinets for the laundry room. That and the tile make the room look new. Overall, the workmanship of the job was great. Any issues have been resolved quickly and with no arguments. They stand behind their work, even after the passage of time, as was the case with the resolution of a problem with the master bath fan which was installed two years prior. We recommend Kitchen Village and Carol Hasler without reservation and only feel sad that there is nothing left to remodel in our house.

Jeff was fantastic and professional updating an older bathroom with new tile and drywall work. He also looked at a humidifier that was making noise and was able to repair the fan. I can't recommend him enough!

We are so happy with Frank and his team. He helped us with an entire kitchen remodel and refinishing floors, and also did our lighting work. Since then his team helped install a big chandelier in our foyer and did an excellent job. I have recommended him to my cousin and they just finished remodeling her kitchen, home painting, adding drywall, lighting, etc. They are so professional, honest, and such a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend them!
