  • Very professional. A team of 4-5 guys quickly removed all drywall walls and a plaster/lathes ceiling in my basement. Took 3 days and they were very careful to keep the dust down as much as possible. When they finished, the area was cleaned as well as a newly demolished basement in a 1900 home can look!

  • This contractor provided us with a contract to refinish our entire basement for $22,000 in labor and we would pay for all materials. He finished half the basement after $16,000 of payments to him and then came back to us and told us it would actually be $37,000, not $22,000. We tried to negotiate with him, even offering 75% of the increase he was asking, and he still said no and now has completely walked off the job, leaving us with a half-finished basement.

  • Best experience I could have ever hoped for with a remodel project! Everyone was extremely nice, professional and listened to my needs. They offered suggestions when needed and always had my best interest in mind. I would definitely recommend them for any project you are looking at.

  • Bart's team did a very good job with our basement remodeling project. Excellent workmanship, and Bart was very responsive to my questions and any concerns I had throughout the project. The team was always professional and completed the project on time.

  • Louis Mejia was fire for breach of contract, and lack of attendance. Electrician and Carpenter had shown up without Louis guiding them or instructing them on what to do on day one. Light fixtures were hung incorrectly to were they could not be mounted. Carpenter complained that Louis was not there at the time he said he was going to be there. Louis had called me to inform me of times he was going to be there and come at a different time then leave after 4 hours. Louis stated at the time of contract he would be working 12 hour days and didn't. Louis failed to provide the brochure for under the Illinois Home Repair and Remodeling Act (815 ILCS 513) Section 20(a) further more Louis refuses to repay the ramaining balance of the ammount back which is a violation of The Illinois Consumer Fraud and Business Practices Act (“Fraud Act”) (815 ILCS 505). Louis stated the basement would be completed in 2 weeks and that the cracked foundation would be taken care of he fixed one crack out of two causing my basement to leak which is pictured below. Also he demoed my kitchen and did not build or keep a promise that a migshift kitchen would be set up nor did he listen when told do not demo my kitchen until everything is at the house he did it anyway and left us with no kitchen for a week. He was told not to demo the master bath until that stuff was at the house he did and left me and my wife with a 2 year old son with no shower for 4 weeks. Pictures of that are posted.

  • We hired Oscar for a complete basement remodel in our 1904 home with stone foundation. We solicited 5 or so quotes before settling on Oscar and the main reason we chose him was because of his excellent communication, timeliness, and unparalleled professionalism. Oscar quoted 3 weeks from start to finish, and the job was completed in 3 weeks and 2 days. That's pretty great. Oscar is not just an owner, he is also on the job site everyday. He is the first one here and the last one to leave, and he and his team seriously work hard, putting in 10-12 hour days routinely. As mentioned, his communication with us was wonderful and assuring. Any question we had, Oscar was happy to discuss immediately. We were very impressed. What puts Oscar and his company in a league of their own is his true LOVE of his job. We could tell that Oscar was thinking about little details all the time, really listened to our requests, and suggested many improvements that we never would have thought of. For example, we decided to leave the main beam in the basement ceiling exposed as a cool feature to show the age of our home (1904) and to give the basement a bit of character. Oscar suggested that we also wrap the support posts in reclaimed wood and then came back and suggested an entire reclaimed wood wall to hide the water valve shut off. These details really made the basement cohesive and unique...blending the new and the old in such a classy way, we honestly could not be more happy with the result. Finding a contractor you trust is not an easy task. We have other projects that need to be completed, but won't be soliciting any other quotes as I trust Oscar to give me a fair price, to really listen to me, and to deliver an excellent finished product. I could not recommend Oscar and his company more. As he said to me, give him the chance to show you how much he LOVES his job. You won't be disappointed.

  • I spent 1 and 1/2 hours with the owner's son (I believe), talking about design and for him to take measurements. This was on May 3. As of today, May 30, no proposal was submitted and they did not even have the courtesy to call me and give me a timeline or let me know they are backing out. A complete waste of my time, and honestly, I'm perplexed on why they even commit to a free quote to then not follow through.

  • Basement Seepage Solutions was my fifth quote. I almost canceled because I was sick of getting quotes and all the big companies charge about the same $70-90 per foot of drain tiles. Matthew's company beat these quotes hands down. He charges $50 a foot plus $10 off a foot for Angies list members (a savings of $1000 for me.). This company beat the next lowest quote by $3,600 so this was a no brainer. Matthew's company did excellent work. They were on time and professional and communicated with me the entire time. Also, Matt is on site during the process and is not just a sales man who comes for a quote then sends out a crew. The job took two days mainly due to the Villages inspection schedule. But I think this is preferable over the big companies that want to do it all in one day but are in your house from 8-8. Highly recommend if you need any sort of basement work done

  • Basement Seepage Solutions was my fifth quote for interior drain tiles. I almost canceled because I was sick of getting quotes and all the big companies charge almost the same price, around $70-90 a foot for drain tiles. Matthew's company beat the other companies hands down. He charges $50 a foot for drain tile, plus an Angies list discount of $10 off per foot (a savings of $1000 for me). In the end, Matthew beat the next closest competitor by $3,600. So this was a no brainer. Matthew and his team do great work. They were on time, professional, and really easy to deal with. Matthew is the owner and he is present at the job site. So he's not just a salesman you see once who then sends out a crew. He communicated with me the entire time. The job took two days, mainly due to the villages' inspection schedule, but they left each day at a reasonable time so you don't have workers in your home from 8-8. Matthew also went above and beyond by coming back after the job was finished to reinstall my washer and dryer. Highly recommend this company if you need any sort of work done on your Basement. They are quality but are a small business that can afford to undercut the big guys.

  • It went fine even though I didn't need their service. I had also contacted a plumber who determined it was from an AC backed up pipe. Dominick still came out and verified the situation. He also was professional to offer a quote on the ejector pump which was lower than the plumber. The plumber matched that price. He also checked out our sump pump as a courtesy. I didn't need Reliable's services but I would recommend them just for their professionalism and honesty.
