He blew us off the first time for the quote appt. I understand things happen so I reached out and he happily rescheduled just to blow us off a second time without a call or message. Waited twice and wish he would have just told me he had no intention of coming.

This is to modify my May 26th review after Mike Hickcox requested after he provided me with his quote. Therefore, per Mike's request the following is my modification of my May 26th review. After writing my May 26th review on Angie's List Hickcox Brothers called me and advised me the reason I did not get my quote was because "my information fell through the cracks" and they apologized. They did provide a quote but I had to provide them with a drawing from another contractor that I liked to expedite getting me my quote. I had to strip all mention of the other contractor's name who actually took the time went to my house and came back with their recommended drawing, not to say that I was uncomfortable providing another contractor's drawing to them. I guess I just expected them to perform the work needed in order to earn my business like the other contractors. I advised Mike when he was providing a quote please don't waste your time and mine if you are going to come back with a quote that was not competitive in the market place. In the end I received just that a quote that was not competitive in the market place and way out of line with the other contractors and yes that was a wasted exercise for Mike and I. I felt Mike was only providing this quote to placate me, so that I would change my review of Hickcox Brothers and protect their rating on Angie's List. I do not have an ax to grind with Hickcox Brothers and this review is accurate and honest. As I advised Mike I do not like when people waste my time as my time is very valuable and I am not that naive to see that his goal was to get me to change my review and his rating on Angie's List. Maybe next time Mike should be more concerned about providing good service and the ratings will take care of themselves.

Abel Services
5.0
Don Abel came out last fall to survey the job. We discussed options and I chose the one I felt was best. He then sent me an itemized estimate by email. I felt the estimate for power washing was too high and fortunately have a neighbor who does that, so got it done for less. Don did not argue. I wasn't able to get the job done last year, so I contacted Don and asked how long the estimate was good for. He told me it was good till October, when the original survey and estimate were done. We set a date for the work. Don called me and said he'd had a cancellation and could come sooner. They were punctual and worked all day for two days, Don and another man working the first day, Don working alone the second day. I couldn't be more pleased with the results. He told me the new wood couldn't be sealed for a year or two because it would need to absorb fully the chemicals that made it pressure-treated wood. I will probably go ahead and seal or paint the old wood that was able to stay in place on the decking. Now I have a beautiful dock that, he said, may need minimal maintenance yearly depending on what ice does over the winter, but no more than that. I couldn't be more pleased. I wish I could include a picture.

Marshall came to give us an estimate on Saturday. He came exactly at the time he said he would, spent time understanding what we needed and quoted us a very fair price. He came out with his workers on Monday, made sure they knew what needed to be done. He came everyday to check on progress and see if there were any questions or problems. His staff were at our house early, worked the whole day, very professional. They built exactly what we needed in a very timely manner. We were absolutely thrilled with their work, as unfortunately we've had some opposite experiences with other companies we've worked with. I would highly recommend them.

Greg Rentschler and team were great. He came out quickly to quote our job. The work Timberseal did was fantastic. They power washed all our exterior decks and siding on our house. Then they stained and sealed all our decks and dock. Finished product is wonderful. Only minor complaint was that the work was quoted to be done in mid September (on August 2nd) and the work was not completed until the last week of October. BUT, it was done in an area of Indiana where its impossible to find contractors to do work let alone good quality work. Thanks Timberseal!

I would highly recommend Jay because of his competence, execution and outstanding customer focus. I have asked Jay to quote on additional work, and expect to be using him again over the summer.. It went very smoothly. Jay kept me informed of progress with repeated text messages, since I was traveling out of state when the work was done.

Overall experience was great. It was actually a 2 part process with the existing deck being replaced 1st. This part took approximately 4-5 days. Demo was quick. The deckers were awesome. Showed up everyday and on time (early)... but not too early so as not to disrupt the neighbors. Bob @ Premier / DJS took care of all the city red tape and got the citation lifted with the city since it was all built to code and done properly. The experience with Premier / DJS was so great - we had them back for the roof top garage deck addition (part 2). The garage was very old - and existing roof would not support the roof top deck, so it was a complete tear down. This took approximately 7-10 days for everything (with a couple of bad weather days mixed in). Other then that - again, the guys showed up everyday and on time. Included demo, hall away debris, rebuilt of joists, roof, brick siding, & finally deck plus stairs that adjoined both floors of the 2-flat (roof top garage is common space, so this was important to us), new downspouts too. I also should add that they included electrical work on this job to add outdoor outlets scattered (to code of course) around the roof top deck plus a cable outlet for the all important outdoor tv, docking station for music, blenders, etc. :) Also re-did electrical work inside the garage since after tearing down roof - discovered that current electrical lines were not up to code / safe. They threw in a couple of extra lights in the garage and that feels much safer when coming home after dark (given the alley access). Both Bob & Dave @ Premier / DJS are great, including the guys they have working for them. I have continued to use them on other jobs since I was so happy with their work (from permits, to planning, to execution, to cleanup)... all the way around - simply fantastic & I would highly recommend them. I wish I could post pics... it's a fantastic space! To be honest - I actually let my angieslist membership recently expire because I figured I didn't need to use anyone else besides Premier/DJS... but as a homeowner - one can never be too careful and it doesn't ever hurt to keep your options open. So I renewed at AngiesList, but after looking around at some other contractors... I'm sticking with Premier / DJS.

Deerfield, IL

Recent Review: There was a long (2-3 weeks) delay between cleaning and sealing. I think they were concerned about rain, which was often predicted but did not occur much. The job is fine. In the future, I would specify clear sealer, no stain.

Recent Review: Absolutely fantastic! This was a VERY difficult project consisting of 60 stairs with 5 different platforms. The ground grade was very steep and what was left of the old stairs and dock was not even safe to walk on. Great Job guys! Thank you.

Spring Grove, IL

Recent Review: Joe came out and reviewed the scope of work and provided a quote the next day. We agreed on the work and price. Due to the time of the year, the project started a month later. The entire project took approximately 3 days. After the work was done, we noticed that some touch up needed to be done. We contacted Joe and he came out a few days later and fixed the issue without - no problems.

Recent Review: These guys are the best!! From the first meeting with Steve thru the design phase with Mike I felt confident I had picked the right company for the job. Any questions I had before the job started were quickly answered. Great communication from beginning to end. The crews were very professional and built a dock that exceeded my expectations. I am happy to recommend Hickcox Brothers Marine.
