Recent Earthquake Retrofitting Reviews in Chicago
- A Plus Towing & AutoExcellent. Jeff inspired trust with his confidence and expertise. He swiftly evaluated my car and explained the problem clearly and logically. When I picked the car up the problem was solved and he had taken it to the emissions inspection station where it passed. Jeff's skill was evident not only in the success of the repair but in the way he deals with customers and manages the shop. A steady stream of customers came in while I was there, and he remembered the details of each their cars and car problems from their earlier phone calls. Jeff masterfully orchestrated the tasks for each incoming car, rapidly giving instructions to another technician and taking some of the tasks himself. All in all, Jeff is clearly knowledgeable and wonderful to deal with. I can't imagine taking my care anywhere else for service after this experience
- ADC ENGRAVINGI showed the woman what I wanted and asked how long it would take and she said they would be done in about an hour. I was blown away. So I said shoot, I'll go shopping and I will be back in an hour. It was done that quickly and it was very good.
- HENKEL ELECTRICJob completed as promised, on-time and as quoted. They worked with village to obtain permit. They were prompt, cheerful & courteous. They kept dirt and dust within a secluded area and cleaned up completely. They've gone above and beyond. They warranty their work and nothing has gone wrong. I will use their service again in the future, highly recommended
- Salon 37They are very good. Everybody is very nice. I like one stylist that I go to every time. I like the aesthetician that does my eyebrows and my facial.

"A section of our gutter was dislodged from our house and a squirrel made a hole in the fascia board to give her a place to have babbies. Prior to making the gutter and fascia repairs, my wife heard noises in our spare bedroom walls and we contacted Plunkett's Pest Control (AKA Varment Guard) who have been spraying our home for bugs annually. While the $400 estimate for placing traps sounded expensive since they wouldn't guarantee to remove the squirrels, we authorized the inspection and trapping. They set 2 live animal traps on our roof near the entrance hole and inspected it on a daily basis for nearly 2 weeks before they finally caught a squirrel. Dan Sylvester was the technician who performed the daily inspections. After catching the first squirrel, Dan advised that it was a mother squirrel and he anticipated that here babies would venture out within a few days. Sure enough, the 2 smaller squirrels were caught in the traps a few days later. While we thought that we heard additional activity in our walls a few days later, Dan stopped at our house and inspected our attic through a trap door in a closet to make sure that there weren't any more squirrels. Afterwards, we had the fascia board and gutter repaired. We're happy that Dan caught the squirrels and took them away from our home without hurting them. He seems like a very nice person who has concern for wildlife. We are extremely pleased with his professionalism, diligence, patience, and perseverance in moving the squirrel family to a better location in a nice wooded area far away from the walls of our home.

"Work was done in a timely fashion and completely to my liking. Price was very reasonable and the workmen were extremely polite and thoughtful while on the job -- moving trucks whenever neighbors needs to get by, and could not have been more polite about it. The old driveway was removed quickly and the new cement was poured with care and now looks beautiful and smooth. Great job!

"I'm very pleased. I had concerns about dust and fumes from the epoxy. The dust was minimal and fumes were not an issue at all. If I had to do it all over again, I'd set up a box fan with filters, as I've seen on YouTube, but even without that, the dust was not overwhelming. The workers arrived on time, explained what they were going to do and welcomed my checking in on them. When they went to lunch, they cleaned up their work area, (even put the toilet seat down in the basement bathroom), something I didn't expect at all. I had questions when they were at lunch, and the salesman got the answers I needed quickly. A couple of things I would change about this process: 1. After they were done, cleaned the area for the day, and put their equipment away, one of the workers invited me downstairs to approve their work. If I had not approved, it was a bit late for me to object as they were packed and ready to go. I suggest in the future the homeowner be asked for their approval before everything's packed up. Their work looked good, but this seemed like a manipulative tactic that wasn't appreciated. 2. The more experienced of the two workers explained early on that he needed to remove some insulation but assured me he'd put it back when he was done. When I saw that he'd not put it back, I mentioned it. He refused to put it back, saying "It doesn't matter". It was an odd way to end a perfect job up to that point. I was totally pleased with how everything was handled, and then that comment and behavior from him just put a bad taste in my mouth. That evening or the next day, I received a very nice gift from the company that was just a really nice touch. A couple of weeks later, we had heavy rains and I experienced water along the walls where the work was done. Within a week of me raising the concern, an arrangement for a technician to visit my home was made. I appreciate their prompt attention to the matter. I expect it's very simple like needing more epoxy at the base of the straps, so I decided to go ahead and submit this review. It's difficult to find trustworthy people to do work in your home. I'm very relieved I found a company that is totally worthy of that trust and highly recommend Acculevel. The work they did looks good and solid.

"Expert House Movers brought a crew of 6-8 & came in late August 2013 to start the process of raising & moving the house. My husband had done all the prep work of disconnecting the utilities & removing the furnace, etc. They dug access ramps to the old foundation/basement with bobcats. They poked good sized holes around the foundation so they could put in steel beams and jack up the house. Our foundation was from 1917 & built from old creek gravel cement, so it was pretty tough. It took three & half days to jack the house & move it over the driveway. It seemed really fast to me. The only thing to fall in the house was a picture off the piano. We still had access to the house through a tall ladder to get clothes, etc. that we needed. <br /> We took over the process of arranging excavation, concrete pouring, and carpenters with more local contractors. Expert does have concrete people & others they use in the St Louis area that know exactly the requirements needed for the new foundation. <br /> After the basement was poured & cured (curing takes about 3-4 weeks), Expert returned in October 2013 to move & set the house. They had been in contact with the concrete man for specifications, but there were no slots for the beams when setting the house down. A concrete worker had to come & cut those slots. We had a carpenter on hand to finish the sill installment & make sure the sills for the permanent beams was correct & set the support posts in the basement. We also had a friend's tractor help Expert's bobcat pull the house back over the foundation. While all this was going on, Expert was jacking and moving supports & placing slider beams & raising & lowering the house. The process was complete in about 2 1/2 days with care & precision. Some of the cracks in our house even disappeared. Great job guys. <br /> Our carpenters returned to build a staircase & some other requirements. We are working on re-connecting utilities & returning the furnace, water heater, etc. to the new basement. We plan to move back into the house in the first week or so in November 2013. It's been a long process, but well worth it. Made possible by Expert House Movers! <br />

"<p>We had changed home insurance companies not long ago because they had refused a claim of hail damage that had been pointed out to us by two different, independent home repair professionals with nothing to gain. After a strong wind storm did further damage to our roof, we hired Mr. Katz. He stepped into our shoes and did all the interacting with our home insurance company, including filing the claim, meeting with their adjusters, then helping select a roofing company. The results were beyond our highest expectations. Mr. Katz put together our claim for a new roof, and it went without a hitch. Mr. Katz then helped find a highly professional roofer who personally supervised every step of the process and the work of a highly capable crew. In short, Mr. Katz handled everything from start to finish. </p> <p>One of the highest compliments we give those providing services for pay is that they are a "true professional." Without qualification, we can recommend Mr. Katz as a true professional and highly recommend him for any roofing or home repair needs. </p> <p>Should you have any questions or want to discuss anything, please feel free to call us at (502) 228-8820--and you are welcome to come by and see our new roof.</p> <p>Sincerely,</p> <p>Lee and Sherleen Sisney</p> <br />

"Everything was completed as agreed upon. The one time I complained about one of the worker's performance, he had that part of the job (tiling) redone immediately. He is an easy man to work with and has good ideas. He helps his customers stay within budget rather than trying to add costs to the project. 7 years after the job was done, I still love my house. Am using Just Builders again for a new project. <br />

"I wasn't happy with it. It could have been better, they could have done a better job. Like when you come out of the anesthesia they send you home right away, they don't wait for the anesthesia to wear off, I didn't think that was very professional. The job they did just wasn't perfect like it should have been. The office personnel were nice, but they are always trying to get you to buy their products which are way over priced. Their pricing was kind of wishy washy because they would give you deals, but it wasn't deals. It was the same price anybody else was charging. The actual procedure, I had some eye surgery done wasn't the greatest. I wouldn't recommend them for cosmetic surgery I would actually go somewhere else next time.

"* They kept me apprised every step of the way. Their communication was excellent, with texts and phone calls. And they finished the work a day earlier than I expected! * A line had rusted, but instead of replacing the whole line, they were able to do a workaround and just replace the portion that had rusted. That was a huge savings for me, and I have no doubt some other car places would have told me I had to do the whole line. * They have an Emissions Testing machine. So I didn't have to take the car and go to the Emissions place to test it, they did it for me, and saved me the trip and headache. That was a wonderful bonus. * They are a family company that has been in business for 30 years....so they don't just have a mission statement to fulfill....they ARE their mission statement. And it showed in everything they did.
