Recent Review: We added a brick patio with seat wall and built-in grill. We requested bids from five contractors and Great Escapes promised the most value for the money. Upon completion of the project, they proved to live up to their promise. They were professional, cooperative, easy to communicate with and very punctual. When problems arose, they resolved them. When conflicts with other jobs arose, they did not pull off our job. Instead, the owner stayed and worked on our project. The patio was completed in a timely manner and the lawn repairs are coming in nicely. As for the final cost, they honored their original bid. I would recommend using Great Escapes to anyone in the Fox Valley Area. They guarantee their work for 3 years and will follow through on that guarantee.
