    Peter���s Wood Refinishing
    They did a great job! We needed to refinish our 2 lobby doors that are original to our 100 year old building (built in 1914) so we wanted the best service possible to make sure it looked good. Peter's delivered in very way! The doors look brand new. We couldn't be happier!

    Big League Painting
    I am very happy with the work that was done on my home by Big League Painting Company. The house had not been painted in over 12 years so there was much paint peeling on the soffits and the fascia. Also there was some rotten wood and woodpecker holes. I called for an estimate and met with them the next day. After a thorough inspection they sent me a detailed estimate of the work they would do and the total cost. Included in the price was power washing the gutters and repairing leaks in the gutters. Also they would remove all the storm window frames in order to paint the windows. Neither of the other companies I called offered to do this. My wife was especially grateful with the quality of the painting and respect for the plants and bushes around the house. Nothing broken or damaged and absolutely no paint chips or messes were left after the job was done. We are so happy with their work we plan to use them to do the interior of the house during the winter.

    Bill Schneeberger Painting & Decorating LLC
    I spent quite a bit of time looking for a painting professional to repaint the front porch of our 110-year-old house in Evanston. I spoke to three or four others before Roy Schneeberger stopped by for a look. After listening to his assessment, I decided Bill Schneeberger Painting was the company I wanted to work with. Mind you, they're not the cheapest, but I'm old enough to realize that you get what you pay for these days. The real value in choosing these guys I think was that they clued me into a number of issues that needed attention with our deck in order to make for a perfect job. Sure I could have said no, but when I listened to Roy explain why he thought some of the other problems he discovered were worth considering, I agreed. The result was a truly perfect paint job that included replacing a bunch of rotten wood I didn't even realize was there. Their work turned our porch into a place I think will be around looking great for many years to come. If I could have given Bill Schneeberger Painting 6 stars I would have ... in fact I will. They deserve 6 stars. I'll be ringing them back soon for some inside work too.

    New Era Woodworks
    I needed to redo a kitchen with custom cabinets due to all the details that I wanted to incorporate into the kitchen. This kitchen could not have been done with semi-custom cabinets due to the very detailed and specific way we wanted the kitchen to function. Luis helped come up with the perfect solution for the job - including so many ingenuitive ideas such as a paper towel holder integrated into the cabinet with storage for other rolls in the back and usb/electrical ports inside drawers. He put together a set of shop drawings that were extremely detailed. The finished project was exceptional. I highly recommend New Era woodworks to anyone wanting custom cabinets or furniture.

    The Basement Men & The Concrete Man
    The project went well from start to finish. Steve Lauer and all members of the remodeling team were professional, on-time, and knowledgeable. Steve's expertise and experience with basement remodeling make this company stand out. He and his team went the extra mile to ensure that we were happy with both the process and the finished product: a a bright, functional, welcoming space.

    Maya Construction Group
    We undertook a major basement renovation / remodeling with Maya Construction Group. We are 100% happy with the experience and the result. Udi and Ofer were great as general contractor, and their team of workers (concrete, carpentry, electrical, plumbing, painting) was proficient, punctual, hard-working, respectful and responsive to our wishes and concerns. Udi's and Ofer's professionalism was outstanding, they had an excellent ability to listen to us, communicate with us and then act constructively. Whenever a problem popped up (as is bound to happen in any renovation project), they quickly found and implemented a great solution. They finished ahead of schedule and on budget. We can only thank them for a perfect job which resulted in a fabulous studio space and warmly recommend them to anyone planning a construction project.

    KEVIN KEELER PROFESSIONAL HANDYMAN
    Far better than expected. Her home was a bit rundown. 1st real estate agent suggested a listing price of $175,000. Kevin & crew fixed it up in about 5 days for total cost of about $3,000. I listed it for $285,000 and it sold in one day.

    4Ever Remodeling
    Very well. Most work was done in 3 weeks. Magda, the designer was very helpful and acted as a project manager. Derek, the contractor, did all the electrical, plumbing, drywall, tiling; he was very knowledgeable and his attention to detail was impressive. He was also very responsive with our concerns (which were few).

    The Craftsmen Group
    We live in a 100-year-old home with the original wooden front door. We hired The Craftsmen Group to address three problems with the door: (1) removing a metal mail slot (a later addition) and replacing with wood so we would have a completely solid door; (2) adding weatherstripping so it wouldn���t leak cold air; and (3) ���reattaching��� the molding around the edges of the recessed panels because it was pulling away (noticeably) from the main body of the door. Terry Allbaugh, president of The Craftsmen Group, came over, looked at the door, and recommended taking the door down, sanding it to bare wood, and repairing it. Then, when it was rehung, adding the weatherstripping. We liked his suggestions and hired him. Of the three separate jobs, the first was completely successful. The second was done acceptably; there is still ,sadly, a fair amount of cold air still leaking in, although it is better than it was. It seems odd to us that it couldn���t have been completely sealed, but that���s a minor concern compared to the third aspect of the work. We had���and still have���no idea how one reattaches the molding to the frame, but since Terry didn���t seem troubled, we presumed it wasn���t a particularly difficult job. His people completed the work, we had the door painted, and the job was over. (We should point out that because the door and its frame are a century old, it���s no longer plumb. It���s a very heavy, solid, door and it took several visits to hang it exactly right so that the locks could be worked easily. To their credit, The Craftsmen Group came back several times so that this issue was addressed to our satisfaction.) We were done. We thought. It is now a bit over one year later and the molding has again separated significantly from the main body of the door again. Since it���s the front door, it is immediately noticeable. And ugly. It looks as if they never even did any work on it. At no time did anyone even so much as suggest that this was a risk. I wrote the company a descriptive e-mail (including several pictures of the work a year later, attached to this review as well) and said, ���I understand that repairs may deteriorate over time, but this is a year later and it's even worse than before you came. What would you suggest be done?��� I sent that e-mail on January 21. A week later, still no reply. I sent the e-mail again on January 30 and on February 1, got a note from the office manager: ���I passed your email along to Terry. I will make sure he sees it. We apologize for missing the 1/21/18 email. Terry will get back to you shortly.��� Another week passed: no reply, no call, no visit. We understand that things happen; emergencies come up. But two full weeks without a response? I sent an angry e-mail the third time because I was angry. Is this how you deal with customers? Finally, in response to the third e-mail I got the following explanation: ���Terry has asked me to write you back. He had (2) management level personnel leave the company the past few weeks. He is overloaded at the moment. He will get back to you when he can to set up a time to meet with you to examine the door.��� No apology; no explanation why this wasn���t sent at the beginning? That was February 12. As their last communication said, ���He [Mr. Allbaugh] is overloaded at the moment. He will get back to you when he can to set up a time to meet with you to examine the door.��� I said that there was no need to contact me; that I had sent pictures and that they could drop by whenever it was convenient for them. Since it���s the front door, no one even need be home. Another month has gone by. No response. No e-mail. No visit. Nothing. Is this how you deal with people who paid you to do work for them? Is this how you stand behind your work? I don���t know what happened and frankly I don���t care. I wasn���t told that this might happen so either it���s not a risk (in which case, what���s going on?) or the work was done so poorly that it didn���t even last a year. Would you want them to do it again? Given their nearly complete lack of responsiveness, I don���t trust them to repair what they didn���t do right the first time and couldn���t be bothered to stand behind. If responsiveness or making sure things are done right (the first time) is important to you, I���d go elsewhere. I will. $250 was a pricey lesson, but I don���t need to be taught twice.

    Brayview Construction Group Inc
    Adam, the owner, is a wonderful contractor with whom to work, with some of the most efficient, effective, and nicest subcontractors and other workers you will ever have the good fortune to have in your home. Adam is easily reachable at any time and charges very reasonably considering what a great job he does. Brayview created a bathroom for us, including a large jetted tub and steam shower that is the envy of all who see it. They upgraded our plumbing and air conditioning and added two additional heating zones that have made our kitchen and attic more comfortable. They created a large, finished basement exercise room that has been a godsend, installed more substantial wood doors,and did painting and other touch-ups to make our house shine. I have recommended Brayview to friends and urge everyone to contact Adam if you want to improve your home in any way.
