They were perfect and on time. Cleaned well, there was no sawdust where they drilled. I am very picky, and I thought they did a great job.

NO SHOW for a confirmed appt (Tuesday, 8/9/16 at 8:00-9:00AM) on a written email from them. No call received to let us know they were running late or needing to reschedule. Attempted to call to see if anyone was on their way--straight to voicemail. If it was too small of a job, it shouldn't have been accepted in the first place. We have two children under 2 years old--not easy to coordinate.

The installer and his crew arrived at the scheduled time. It was an extremely hot day. The heat index climbed to over 100 degrees through the day. I showed the installer where the door was to go and where the windows were to be installed (The 3rd floor of a townhouse with a west view and no shade.) When I showed the installer the windows, I mentioned that this was a full tear out. That meant all of the existing wood framing needed to be removed and new framing put in. He thought they were just suppose to sit the window on top of the existing framing. He called and received the news that in fact, it is a full tear out. He was not a happy man. (He was not unprofessional with me, but his crew caught a lot of his frustration.) He had to go and purchase wood for framing each of the 6 windows. The measurement of one of the windows was slightly off. The brick had to be shaved ever so slightly. He had the company call me to tell me this needed to be done. After the windows were just about finished, the installation of the door began. Everything was proceeding nicely it seemed until they got ready to put the storm door back on. It would not close when the new front door was closed. The door knobs were in the same spot. The installer wanted to leave the storm door off. That was not an acceptable solution for me. Apparently he called the company and received a suggested solution. They raised the storm door. They added a piece to the bottom of the door to keep air out and make it flush again. It was a nice piece of patching. If you did not know there was a piece at the bottom, you would not be able to tell. It was a long exhausting hot day. They finished at 6 pm. After the installer went over how everything worked, he was finally able to smile and wish me a good day. I offered him the same. He said, what I already knew, "I was not prepared for the full cut out of those windows". Two items that were not related to the install were issues for me and the reasons for my "B" Quality rating. First the lock on the front door was to be keyed the same as the lock on the door being replaced. I provided the key number. That did not happen. After the company contacted the builder of the door, they learned that the new lock could not be keyed the same as the old lock. They offered to try to make things right so I would not have so many keys. I told them that I liked the front door so much that I would probably order a new back door and then the locks for those doors could be keyed the same. The second issue was the mail slot. The outside flap that the postman would use did not open without some difficulty. I thought it was stiff. One day I caught up with the postman and asked him why he didn't drop the mail through the door, and he said that the slot wouldn't open. Sure enough, the top on the inside had dropped down and kept the outside flap from opening. I tried taking the screws out, but the frame was sealed on the door. So, I got some duct tape and used it to try and keep the top from dropping down so the flap would open. Every couple of days I had to press it .

Serviceman was very professional, friendly, and punctual. Very skillful. Louver door I had bought was too large; he cut it down to size and hung it. Couldn't even tell the door had been sawed shorter before hanging. Consulted me on more work I want done. Will be using this company again.

I needed to install a peephole and knocker in my brand new steel door. It was a small job, but someone had to do it so I called The Fix It Guy. They usually require a minimum of two hours for a job, but in this case they only charged me for an hour, came promptly and did an excellent job. I couldn't be more pleased.

They were very professional, from the estimate to the install, All questions were answered to my satisfaction. The only thing the installers did not speak very good english, but when I asked them to slow down and speak , it was much better communication. ala in all the experience was good.

We had our exterior entrance door replaced due to some shoddy work from another contractor (not this one). Hank replaced the old steel door with a fiberglass door with sidelight. He did an excellent job on the door. The door needed painting to match our exterior colors. The door was going to be painted a forest green color. We also needed the door knocker, door bell, peep hole and storm door installed, which was part of the original work. Hank said that we needed to pain the door before he installed the storm door or the frame would rot if installed on an untreated surface. We called back Faith to see about painting it and we needed to fill the painters entire day with work, so we gave him the door and surrounding framework inside and out as well as the baseboards that are along the stairway to the upstairs. The painter never came out to see the work, but Faith relayed the information to the painter on what was required and I talked to them as well. Painting day came and Marek, one of the painters arrives and asks my wife why we are painting the door. He wouldn't paint it if it was him. He kept telling her he wouldn't paint it if it was him. He would leave it white. But, we still had to give him other work to do since he was already here and still was required to be paid. After some back and forth with my wife, he was going to do what we had hired him for and that is paint the door. In the first place, there was no need for the arguments at the outset of the job. That gave us a bad taste in our mouths from the get go. He didn't do the painting but his other painter did. The other painter was saying that we needed tinted primer to be avaialble for him. We purchased the paint ahead of time for everything and asked told Faith that we had the paint and the type of door that had to be painted. No where in the conversations did any type of primer come up before the painting job. Anyway, the other painter seemed to settle down a little and started working. Well then he dropped the brand new lock handle set when he was taking it off the door and scratched it. Later, he was arguing with my wife about filling a hole with some wood filler because he didn't think it needed it. He told her and I quote, "why does it have to be perfect". Well, nothing is perfect, but if you are hired for something and the customer asks to do something that is in your scope of work, you do it and don't talk back. The other painter was very unprofessional. I was at work that day and I was communicating with Faith on the issues and told her that I wouldn't be paying her the full price because the painter scratched our brand new lock set by dropping it. Later, that day Hank got involved and went to our home to see what was going on. He was able to take care of the handleset entirely and fix it. No longer was it scratched. Basically he took it completely apart replaced the scratched piece and put it back together like he was the manufactuer of it! Hank saved the day! He took care of the other painter as well by setting him straight. Marek later came back at the end of the day tp collect payment and did apologize to my wife, but both painters were unprofessional from the start, which there is no excuse for. Also, Faith claimed "they treat your home like it is their own they are so meticulous with their work", well that wasn't the case at all. They weren't any different from contractors we encountered in the past. They just wanted to get paid and leave as quick as possible. If anyone did go above and beyond it was Hank and I would hire Hank again in a second! At the end of the day, everything got done that was agreed to be done. However, the other painter missed painting some spots on the door frame and trim. I told Faith this and she offered for Hank to complete it when he returned for the storm door install. I told her that I would do it myself. This is not Hank's responsibility since he is a carpenter and not a painter. It should have been done originally, but I didn't want those painters back in my home because of the awful first impression they made on us. I ended up finishing their job. Lastly, I will never hire those painters again, but will be giving Hank any work that he is willing to do for me in the future. I fully recommend Hank for carpenter services. I had to rate some of the services as lower than an A because of the awful experience with the painting. I had to average the services together (painting and carpentry). If I just received Hank's services then all A's would have been submitted, but due to the painters, something less is being submitted. They ruined the experience.

Ron Burns was my sales man. He came out, explained everything in terms I could understand and answered all my questions to my satisfaction. Ron went as far as looking at a problem I was having with another entry door and set of windows installed by another not as reputable company, and offering his suggestions to the problems. When the installers came out, there were originally 2 of them but one was called away on a family emergency. The second stayed and made sure the job was finished even though it meant an extended day's work for him. He was extremely pleasant an helpful. Since the installation, two issues have come up with the doors, a missing peep hole and cold air coming though the bottom of one of them. I called the issues in and they promptly sent someone out to fix both. GREAT FOLLOW THROUGH!!!

Joe was great to work with. He gave me a fair estimate to door the work on my condo building, showed up on time, called ahead to verify the date and time to do the work and finished the actual work within the time promised even though there were some difficulties encountered. All the new hardware worked even better than what we were promised. I'd recommend Joe (Gruber) and Ashland Lock to anyone looking for a quality job at a competitive price.

I CALLED SEVERAL LOCK COMPANIES, BUT FEW HAD MUCH EXPERIENCE WITH MORTISE LOCKS AND THEIR BIDS WERE QUITE HIGH. TERRY IS A SPECIALIST IN THIS AREA AND HIS PRICING WAS RELATIVELY REASONABLE. THE PROJECT WAS MORE WORK THAN I EXPECTED. IT INVOLVED A LOT OF EQUIPMENT, IT WAS KIND OF MESSY, AND THERE WASN'T A LOT OF ROOM TO WORK. TERRY HAD TO COME BACK A SECOND TIME TO FINISH UP. I WISH HE COULD HAVE BEEN A BIT MORE PROMPT AND CLEANED UP A BIT MORE, BUT I WAS PLEASED TO FIND SOMEONE WITH HIS RANGE OF EXPERTISE. HE CAN DO ANYTHING INVOLVING DOORS, SO I ALSO ASKED HIM TO INSTALL A PEEPHOLE, ADJUST A DOOR STOP, MAKE SURE HANDLES LOCKED PROPERLY ETC. I AM QUITE PLEASED WITH THE RESULTS. HINT: IF YOU BUY A SLAB DOOR, (NOT PREHUNG), ALWAYS MEASURE THE ACTUAL SLAB UPON RECEIPT! I ORDERED A 32 INCH SLAB, IT WAS LABELED 32 INCHES, BUT THE ACTUAL SLAB WAS 31 3/4 INCHES WIDE, A QUARTER INCH SMALLER THAN MY DOOR OPENING. THAT IS WHY TERRY HAD TO COME BACK A SECOND TIME TO ADJUST THE JAMB. ARGH.

Recent Review: Great. No problems. I needed a new storm door for my side door. Mark came out and gave me an estimate for installation and a brochure on storm/screen doors. I purchased the door myself from another company. When the door was ready Mark picked it up and performed the installation. Mark did a great job.

Recent Review: Rob (Son) from Scott Overhead door came out and finished putting together the garage door opener that I purchased as well as removed and replaced the lower panel of the garage door. He was not a fan of the flimsy hardware that came with the opener so he supplied his own angle iron, door and door opener brackets. He aligned everything, lubricated everything and tested it thoroughly. I only wish I had called them 4 years ago when I had the doors installed. Great Job at a very reasonable price. I highly recommend their work.

Recent Review: It took 2 months to get the doors that we ordered, but that was fine with us. We knew we had ordered quality doors and there were other people who had ordered doors ahead of us. The team of men who installed the doors were very professionable and looked like they were experienced in door replacement. When they were done putting in the doors they cleaned up the area of our front door inside and outside.

While here, tightened up all the screws in sight, lubricated everything. Very professional, very responsive small businessman. We're planning on replacing our doors this spring - Ray's Overhead Doors will definitely get a call.

Recent Review: Knowing that our home was built in the 1930's and that we needed a professional to install a new entry door, we sought out firms that could sell us a door and install it. Initially, we chose The Door Store as they sell the Simpson brand doors. This is an affordable wood door that could be customized and then stained. We also needed to replace the screen door and liked what they recommended. Lastly, we wanted the bedroom door hardware to be changed and they sell the Emtek brand which we like. Their carpenters were professional and we are pleased that all doors swing perfectly and the door hardware is a huge improvement. There was a mid-point problem with our wood door not taking the stain, so they installed a temporary door to accommodate our summer travel plans. We look forward to working with them again!

ROLLING MEADOWS, IL

Recent Review: These guys are 100% fantastic! They came out to replace the bottom rubber seal on the garage door, which the old one had some damage. They also performed a door tune up. At first they couldn't get the new seal to completely close the gap between the door and the garage floor. It turned out my door had either been improperly installed originally (by a different contractor) or the door no longer fit correctly when we had our garage concrete floor replaced. Whatever the cause, Aladdin Doors completely readjusted the door, including moving the rails and moving up the door tension-er. Now the door completely seals to the floor and it's installed properly now. Then afterward they gave me a call to make sure I was 100% happy with the job. I would absolutely recommend these guys and use them again in the future.

Recent Review: I came here to Angie's List to look for a reputable company to replace our old garage door. I found Duke of Doors and they were highly recommended. I called Duke and left a message. He called back within 20 minutes. We set a date and he came out and looked at our old door, took some measurements, and showed us some samples of new doors. We discussed a few options and then made our choice and set a date for the work. Since I would not be home on that day, an exact time arrival was not important. I arrived home after work to find a beautiful new garage door. It was the one we had selected and looked great. There was no mess, nothing left behind, and nothing moved around in the garage. I had moved some items previously before they arrived. When he returned for the check, he went over some basic things with me about lubricating the door hinges rollers etc. We kept our old automatic door opener since it was in good operating condition. In summary, great job, beautiful door, and Duke is dependable, responsive and courteous. The value of the job was commensurate with the price paid. We're very happy.

Recent Review: I had contractor out twice in last couple years for a quote, then some other, more urgent project would come up requiring me to postpone replacing the garage door. I called Lee back and advised I was ready to go forward if he wanted to come back and give me a new estimate. He asked if I still had the estimate from the year before and I did. He asked that I read it to him and advised he would honor the previous quote. He gave me some guidelines of what I needed to tell him regarding the type and style of door I wanted. I reviewed the manufacturers website and called Lee back and told him what I wanted. Because I wanted something that was a little different, it wasn't in stock but in a few days Lee had the door and called me to schedule the install. He methodically removed the old door. The bottom panel was so rotted he could not lift it in one piece to put on the roof of his van for removal and disposal. It folded in half like it was cardboard. Then he removed and replaced all the track and hardware, installed the new door, and the new opener. He even fixed an issue with the way the old door was installed where it didn't close at the top completely flush with the frame. I always thought it was because the opening is shorter in height than newer construction, but it was really because it wasn't installed properly. The new door is quieter in operation and safer as the previous door didn't have the electronic eye if a child crossed the opening as it was closing. It's better insulated as well. The only issue was it looks so good, the exterior trim of the garage and the outside lights look shabby in comparison. So I spent the weekend repainting the trim and installing larger, more stylish lights. I think I just increase my resale value by $5K.

Recent Review: Ev Windows is amazing. The level of service and attention provided by Krzysztof is the best of any company we had give us quotes. He was no nonsense no upsell attitude. He is an incredibly honest down to earth guy doing honest work. Not only that but they provided the lowest quote for the highest quality windows. I don't know why anyone would pick another company I would definitely use Ev Windows on any and every job I ever have.

Recent Review: I called for service Thursday Feb 18th. The owner was very courteous and originally offered to come out that evening between 6 and 8 PM. (wind chill that evening was -20 degrees) unfortunately this was Ash Wednesday and I had to go to churcch that evening. Moe Ibrahim (the owner) was very understanding and said he could be out Thursday morning between 8 and 10 AM. I agreed on the time and at 9AM, Thursday morning, he was at my house. (I was surprised that Moe was so punctual because the wind chill at 9 AM was -30 degrees and all schools were closed. I was also told by other garage door businesses that it was to cold to work and that if they were to come out in this weather they would charge an additional fee because of the harsh weather) After examining the door he told me what had to be done. I told him I really needed it fixed (Unknown to him both my wife and I are disabled and a working door is a necessity, I didn't ask for a quote because I just wanted it fixed). Moe installed 3 full width garage door braces and adjusted the door springs and the door was fixed. Coming out in this weather to fix the door was necessary and Moe's attitude, friendliness and professionalism was really nice.

Recent Review: I called the Garage Door Guys this morning when we discovered that a spring was broken on our garage door. They gave me a quote over the phone and sent someone out within an hour and fixed it. Upon his arrival, the technician found that we had 2 broken springs and he replaced them both and lubricated the door. It sounds like a new door. He also adjusted (at no charge) the electric eye on the third bay and had it up and running again. I would definitely use the Garage Door Guys again!

He had supplies on the truck so I didn't have to wait for another service call to fix something. The garage is running quieter than ever. I will use Garage Door Solutions for all my garage door needs and would highly recommend them to my friends and family.

Recent Review: I'm so glad you sent this. I've been meaning to write a review. From start to finish, our experience was wonderful. We visited the store and looked at all the various doors in person. Everyone was very helpful. We chose a door and set up a home appointment. The salesman who came out to the house was friendly, knowledgeable and very patient. We really liked the "app" that allowed us to view the door on our home. That was a big selling point for us!! We were advised that the delivery of the door could take 6 mos or more due to supply chain issues etc. and the door arrived right around the 6 month mark!! The craftsman who installed the door was great!! He did a superb job. The door is hung beautifully and we can already notice the improvement with energy efficiency!! He was very patient as well, as we were undecided regarding reinstalling the storm door. He showed up both options so we could make a decision!! We've made a lot of improvements to our home over the years and honestly, we've never received more complements than we have with the new door. Everyone notices it and comments on how nice it is.... mailman, neighbors, friends, workman...it's incredible!!

What do customers in Chicago say about Peephole Installation?

Had two appointments, One to discuss proposed services followed by the installation date. Both went well. We were advised in advance that difficulties might occur when resetting the security system. Both times the workers arrived on time, or a little early. Since then we did have the security company come out to adjust the connections. The security tech praised the professional installation work and quality of the products supplied by Preferred. The good work included special placement of the peephole site. The door looks great! Provides a super barrier from wind and is sealed very well, keeping out the cold.
