Deck Building reviews in Maywood

    I called them to come out to look at my job. When they came to look at the job they told me that my front porch was considered a deck which is not true. . They said that they would need $3000 to pressure wash, scrape, and paint the trim just on the porch. I was going to supply the paint. When I brought up the Big Deal he said that it would work and they couldn't do this job for under $3000.

    Stay away from this company, far, far away. What happened ... The two "carpenters" were told to put aside items from under the porch before demolition and the contract called for saving the bulkhead doors. Everything was thrown away except rusted empty paint cans. I finally figured out they did not speak English. After demolition, they started to build the deck and saw cuts were angled incorrectly, & they covered up some dry-rotted wood on the house. They then started to demolish my sidewalks (not in contract) and the wall with an axe. They managed to knock out mortar from my fieldstone foundation wall, and poured a small concrete pad for the stairs (no rebar or metal screening for reinforcement) that was not level and was cemented to my foundation wall (not in contract) They broke my patio stones and cemented them into the existing stairs that lead down to the basement door. When they had demolished the wall, they used my lumber which was in my back yard and demolition debris to make forms for placing new concrete for the wall. I did not give them permission to use anything and I find them using my tools to mix quik-crete. Some of my tools are missing (I opened the garage to give them an extra source of electricity, bad move). They then poured bags of dry cement mix into the form and added water and dirt and other debris and mixed it with my shovel. No rebar re-enforcement and no footing!! The concrete mix dust got all over my central a/c unit, I had to call for repair and cleaning. Plus they put a cardboard form for a round pier inside the mold for the wall! No reinforcement!! The piers were needed for the 2 posts that hold up the roof, but they did not locate them properly (no plumb line was used to locate the place for the piers), and they were totally out of alignment with where they should have been to contact the frame of the roof. The contract required that they make a ramp so my dogs could get out of the back door the first day. One the 2nd day after I complained to the owners, they took my old stairs, cut them in half and put them 18 in. below the door and added a little hand rail so that I couldn't open my back screen door. Then they made some narrow stairs two days later that my dogs could not use because the treads are only about 8 in. wide! They called in "their" structural engineer, Frederick Lam of Midlothian, and he said the concrete should have been reinforced, but they could use quick-freeze for it, and then submits a drawing to my town's code department calling for drilling a hole at an angle through the existing concrete wall and into my fieldstone foundation and putting a threaded rod in to anchor the wall to the foundation! The concrete has air bubbles in it! It won't last very long. I wasted 5 days of vacation on this nightmare, had my personal property thrown away, destroyed, or damaged, and things done without my permission or knowledge. They purport to have a Chicago general contractor's license - not so, says the City of Chicago - I am not in Chicago - so it wouldn't matter. But that's right up there on their website. Their being insured for $2M is a bogus claim as well. I've had to hire a lawyer to get my $3500 back and to have them pay for everything they damaged or stole or threw away. I wish I could give them lower than an F.

    The job was done in a very professional manner. The foreman and the crew were polite and behaved in a professional manner at all times.  All of my questions were answered completely.
