Lake Home Repair
Tony and his team did an excellent job in remodeling our basement. He took the open space and created a TV man cave, game room and a full bathroom. His tile work was awesome. He also created a 20 foot wall of storage with bi-fold doors.

M&L Remodeling & Painting
After getting several quotes, we decided to hire M&L Remodeling to complete our basement project. We felt all of the companies we got quotes from would have done an excellent job but we chose M&L Remodeling mainly because of how comfortable we felt with Matt. Matt listened to what we had in mind, interjected a few of his expertise thoughts and opinions, and made us feel comfortable and confident the project would be done correctly, in the timeframe given, and at a competitive price. The work Matt and his crew did included: removed existing walls, installed french doors, straightened out our crocked hallway, installed tile flooring, installed a wet bar (including back splash and undercabinet lights), installed can lights and moved electrical and cable outlets, installed closet doors, and painted the entire basement (about 1000sf). As for Matt and the workers, we don't have any complaints. Matt was always accessible by phone. His team showed up on time and worked diligently throughout the day. The crew cleaned up after themselves and left the work space as neat as possible. They even sealed off the basement stairwell so to minimize dust on the first floor. Additionally, as issues and remodeling opportunities that weren't in the original plan came up, they discussed with us our options and were amenable to address or change the plans to our satisfaction. We would hire M&L Remodeling again and give them our highest recommendation for a remodeling project.

Anix Inc
We selected Anix Builders after reading through several Angie's List reviews, and we couldn't have been more pleased with the outcome! Joe came to our home and could see that we were in desperate need of a basement remodel after water damage. He gave us several suggestions, worked with us to keep costs close to our budget, and followed through every step of the way. Our village permit took a little longer than any of us expected, but Joe and his crew worked diligently to keep us on track. His crew members were extremely polite and cleaned up every day to keep the mess to a minimum. New insulation, drywall, paint, lights, and carpeting transformed the basement completely! Our grandchildren are thrilled to have their brand new playroom completely finished! Don't assume that your Village will respond quickly with your building permit. We appreciated updates from Joe via e-mail and phone as our job progressed. We plan to do more remodeling in the near future, and Joe and the rest of the Anix Builder's team will be our contractor of choice! We highly recommend this company.

Fix It Handyman Inc
Jose and Arturo saved my football season for me. My man cave uses our rear door as a entry way. From the beginning this door leaked air like a sieve. At times when I would be in my beloved man cave watching game or something it would be just the same as being outside. I had to buy a heater just for that room. But Now!!!! I am good to go. Jose did an investigation of the door and soon concluded that the door had not been properly installed. He gave me a few options and we decided to do some specific repairs and I couldn't be happier. Jose was professional, cordial, personable and conscientious about his work. Meanwhile Arturo's drywall work was immaculate. I would hire them again anytime.

Biango Construction
I can't be more happy with how our room addition project went. There isn't a time I can think of where I had to point out any flaws in the craftsmanship that Nick and his team at Biango Construction performed. Throughout the process there was a clear and open line of communication and dialog for recommendations and answers to all my inquires as we moved along the path of progress and completion. I would HIGHLY recommend Biango Construction. I've already begun the process for another project my wife and I had in mind.

4Ever Remodeling
Last year my wife and I reached out to multiple contractors/companies to remodel the upstairs kitchen in our two-flat and convert an unfinished hallway into a laundry room. We ultimately decided to go with 4Ever Remodeling after meeting with Damian and Magda. Their quoted price was very reasonable; not the cheapest but definitely not the most expensive compared to other design/build companies. We could not be happier with how everything turned out. Their flexibility, professionalism, and -- most importantly -- the quality of work exceeded our expectations. The scope of work was by no means simple, as almost everything about the layout of our kitchen was functionally obsolete and needed to be re-imagined for easier everyday use and modern storage needs. Plumbing and gas lines had to be re-configured for an additional sink and laundry installation, and the refrigerator had to be creatively fit into an adjacent closet behind the existing drywall. These tasks were expertly completed and the photos speak for themselves as to the quality of workmanship. We used Magda for her kitchen design service before construction and we highly recommend using her. Her knowledge, expertise, and confidence was invaluable to us and would be to anyone who doesn’t have experience dealing with the nuances and stress that come with an extensive remodel. She was there to not only to extract the vision we wanted into construction drawings but also to help consult us on more specific design ideas, and often break our indecisive gridlocks on simple choices like backsplash, faucets, grout color, etc. Any remodeling process can be overwhelming but Magda simplified things for us and was worth her fee 10 times over. As soon as construction started, the foreman, Adam, and his team, were on site every morning, Monday through Friday (and sometimes Saturday!), 8am-5pm, like clockwork, until the job was done. 4Ever is a company that is not going to stop the job until it is finished. Adam was a unique problem solver who was able to diagnose and correct issues arising from the age of our 140 year old house. He was very focused and kept us informed on the schedule and ideas for bringing the design to fruition. He even returned after the job was technically finished to complete touch ups and correct minor things which was greatly appreciated. We highly recommend 4Ever Remodeling based on our experience working with them. The care and attention to detail throughout this project was unmatched by any other remodeling company/contractor we've dealt with, and because of that we’ll definitely be using them again for our next project.

Budget Right Kitchens
I thought Dirk was very honest and genuine about his recommendations and they were in my best interest - once learning I was going to put the house on the market next year he really made sure that I didn't sink money into a project in which I wasn't going to receive a ROI or that didn't make sense. He was very professional. Even if I didn't do the bathroom project I considered him for future projects.

Scott's Home Improvement
After calling several other contractors, Scott provided me with a very reasonable estimate. He advised me of what I needed to get done, and what he recommended. My basement was unfinished with bad wiring from the old owners and structural issues (loose joists, bad wood, poor paneling). I gave Scott the job and could not have been happier. My basement is actually pleasant to go down to as opposedto being a dungeon.

Recent Review: Overall it went very well, and make no mistake they were very good. But since everyone could stand some improvement, I will be forthright about what went well and what needed improvement. The initial design phase for the space was a great experience and they were very patient with us. We went through three rounds of various ideas before we settled on the final plans. When we met with the architect, he had some extremely helpful suggestions and as the building began, my husband and I often commented to each other how glad we were for the architect's ideas. In particular, he suggested that we move the whole room so that the new roof line could be centered between two of the upstairs windows. It has become one of the things we like most about the addition. We found that their interior design staff was not very much help. Although, we have strong ideas about what we like (both of us have some art background), and we ended up just going our own way on the bathroom ideas. We found that their tile prices are too high, so we bought the tile on our own. They told us from the beginning that we were not obligated to buy all our materials through them--and that is a big reason for recommending them. We liked that about them. And they have a particularly good tile installer who really created a work of art in our bathroom. We had some trouble with the installation of the ceiling in the main room. When the drywallers put up the ceiling, it was very obvious that it was wavy. My husband was very unhappy with it, but Design First called back the drywallers back and they took it all down, shimmed the ceiling joists and put the drywall back up. The carpenters also were very accommodating when one of the windows was not centered on the wall. My husband wanted them to move the window and they did not complain at all. In fact, the carpenter encouraged my husband to tell them whether we were happy or not. They moved the window without much trouble and without any griping. In general, once the building work began we felt that we were not left for very long without someone showing up to work. We never felt abandoned; they worked pretty steadily. We also were pleased that they had a port-a-potty on site for the workers. We thought that was very professional of them. We were also very pleased that they were able to match two brick colors that are in the original part of the house--a white brick and a red brick, from 1963. I wanted a fireplace whose brick would match the white brick in our entry hall because from the entry hall you can see straight back to the fireplace. And the white brick in the entry way is original to the house. And I wanted the outside chimney to be an exact match to the existing, original brick on the front of the house. They were able to match both bricks, so from the inside and the outside the addition feels very much a part of the original house. I also wanted the mantel finish to match the wood in our entryway--also original to the house. The interior designers were very helpful on this score and their shop carpenters created a lovely modern maple mantle. Over the white brick, it's gorgeous! We were also pleased that they cleaned up after themselves. We had some misunderstandings over some of the electrical requirements, and my husband was a little annoyed but we did manage to get things clarified. One thing to note: my husband was very careful about watching all the line items in their cost reports as the project went along. It's a good thing too because he found two errors which would have cost us about $1700. They were very obliging and fixed the line items without any fuss. One thing that surprised us was some stalling that occurred over the permits: we were being required by the village to upgrade our electrical service when it was clear to the electricians that we didn't need to. Design First told us that they had had trouble with this office before and did not think that we would be able to get around this. But my husband was having none of it: He went in to the village office, talked to a couple of people, wrote up our request for a variance, and got the requirement waived. It saved us $3000. We were surprised that Design First was not able to do this; however, we chalked it up to lessons learned. Just because you have a contractor doing a lot of work for you does not mean that you don't have anything to do. Whether Design First should have been able to get this waiver for us or not, we really don't know. But they were honest with us and encouraged us, as the homeowners, to do all we could do to get it waived. I also want to say that their project manager did a good job interfacing with all the workers. There was some miscommunication here and there, but that seems all par for the course. He was even tempered and seemed well-suited to his work. There were two other instances that did not pass the plumbing inspection and Art, the plumber, came back twice without delay to fix things. Overall, we were very happy with them and we love the finished product! We love our new space! And we would definitely recommend them to others.

From start to finish, Synergy met all our needs and expectations. Never once did I have to chase down a subcontractor or trade. Never once did I feel we were being put on the back burner. Never once did I feel Synergy wasn't working for us. It was money well spent.
