Reviews in Chicago to Install Weather Stripping

Excellent service. The handyman arrived on time, and did a great job replacing the weather stripping on the window. Would definitely use this company again.

I don’t normally write reviews, but I am writing this so that no one else makes the mistake of hiring this company for their home. My project with this company was very basic, and something most people would even do on their own without hiring a professional. Yet, it ended in a broken front door and a lot of frustration for me. I am glad this wasn’t a larger and more complicated project, because I cannot imagine the disaster I would be in now if that were the case. Here is a breakdown of my experience, and I hope it helps you make a decision about the company you use for your project. My front door was never installed correctly, and that being the case there has been gaps around the door letting air into my house. Luckily, this is an easy fix, all I needed to do is get some weather stripping and seal the door. This is a project most people would do on their own and shouldn’t take more than 30 minutes. Unfortunately I am not handy at all, so I called Handyman matters. They started off very professional and explaining the process and I was excited to get moving along. I then received my quote to put weather stripping on the door at an estimated time of 2 ½ hours. A little excessive but I agreed because they seemed nice, and sounded like they knew what they were doing. Unfortunately this was not the case. The employee arrived at my home and seemed confused about how he would accomplish this “difficult” task. He then went to the store which is down the block from me and spent an hour and a half on the clock searching for tools. When he returned he took over 4 hours adjusting and readjusting the weather stripping. The whole time he would mutter to himself words such as “no that’s not right, oops, ugh, why isn’t this working, now I have to do this again, what am I doing wrong, etc.” Finally he said he was finished and took off. Unfortunately we did not examine the door before he left, which is our fault for not doing. When we did examine it we noticed that the weather stripping did not achieve its goal, there was actually more space around our door than there originally was, and on top of that the door would no longer close properly. The company then wanted to charge me for a total of 4 ½ hours even though the estimate was only for 2 ½ hours. This goes against their websites price guarantees, but they do not care. Eventually they agreed to come and fix the door 2 weeks later. Not surprisingly the same guy showed up not knowing what he was doing and accomplished nothing. They then wanted to charge me for that visit as well. So now they expect me to pay over 6 ½ hours of work for a job that should take no longer than 30 minutes by a competent worker. Even if the job was actually completed they should respect their price guarantee, and their 1 year free fixes guarantee. This is besides for the fact that the job has still not been completed correctly and my door is actually worse off than before. They refused to fix the issue again which is against their policies, and wanted to charge me more than my estimated costs which is also against their policies. Luckily after fighting to keep them from charging me more they agreed to settle at the original estimated cost. I highly recommend finding another company for your project. You will be quite upset if you move forward with this company and will regret not listening to this review.

I probably would have done a better job myself. Weather stripping was applied to dusty/dirty windows and doors so the stripping began to fall off before the winter season ended. I would have wiped down surface area with wet cloth before applying weather stripping.

I found the worker young and inexperienced. I had to make suggestions to make the project airtight. I think that with more experience, he will be more proficient.

They were recommended to me by a friend. They also did weather stripping, some gutter work, and put in some lights. They followed up to check if they had done a good job. The prices were very reasonable, and they were negotiable. I was very happy with them, and they did a very good job.

The contractor sent to my house was awesome! He explained I wouldn't need a new door but that weather stripping would be just as effective. He was happy to install a new door, but it wouldn't solve the problem. He was quick and under budget!

It went ok. A few days after the work was done I noitced one door the install only put 2 screwes into the weather striappping to hold it inot place. All the other doors had multiple screws placed in the predrilled holes. I had to go out get more screws and fix the weather stripping.

Welter Home Services
2.0
This is a difficult review to write. Some of the work done by Welter Home Services was good and the handyman they sent didn't waste any time going between jobs on my list. The main work that was done well was installation of 2 shower grab bars and fixing a kitchen cabinet garbage can door that eventually broke after over 20 years of constant use. Unfortunately, some of the work was totally unacceptable and they do not stand by their work, even when notified within 24 hours of the work being completed. If they can classify it as a "repair", it's buyer beware! If it breaks again or you see something unacceptable 1 min after they pull out of your driveway, they actually expect you to PAY THEM to fix their own poor work! The work that was not at all satisfactory was the installation of weather-stripping on 2 doors and fixing a broken screw on my desk's keyboard drawer. It took 3 attempts to get the drawer (hopefully) fixed, of which I had to pay for 2 of the attempts. My front door is admittedly not the best and they did make it close easier (not on my fix-it list). However, in the process, they left such a large gap between the door and the weather-stripping that I could see sunlight coming in between the door and the frame. The handyman actually tried to tell me that I was just seeing the weatherstipping, but I guarantee you that I can tell the difference between sunlight that leaves a shadow and some light-colored weatherstripping! I have since installed some foam weatherstipping to stop the massive air leaks before the weather turns and it becomes too cold for the foam to stick properly. I paid them almost $220, and then had to fix it myself! Adding insult to injury, when I called to complain about the large gap they left around my front door, the owner Kevin Welter told me twice that "he hoped I would be reasonable"! As a woman of a certain age, that sexist comment translates as "Just be a good girl and stay quiet!" Would he DARE make such a comment to one of his male customers? I will NEVER use them again - sexist or not - as I feel that anyone who does not have enough pride in their work to stand by it and fix something that is clearly unacceptable is just not trustworthy.

He was very efficient, helped to prioritize list of repairs and clearly explained what he could reasonably accomplish which helped us determine how to proceed, was on time and very thoughtful throughout process. We also appreciated his keeping us aware of time involved in each project so we could reasonably estimate and budget. Furthermore, he was clearly and without qualification committed to the quality of his repairs, and while to some people perhaps the next fact might not seem a key issue, he cleaned each area in which he had worked so there was no later clean-up necessary on our part. Terrific!

Recent Review: As in previous times, Budget Right sent Tim out to do the work at my house. Tim is a great handyman: he is very knowledgeable in multiple areas; he works efficiently; and he does a great job. He is very responsive to one's needs and concerns, and was even very patient when I had to reschedule our appointment a number of times. He is always cheerful and goes above and beyond what is expected. I believe I get a great value for the quality and amount of work done.

Recent Review: Ibro was on time. He quickly assessed the scope and got to work. He got to everything we asked him to do and did it well. He offered suggestions when we seemed unsure or unable to articulate exactly what we wanted. We were very happy with the result. They left no mess whatsoever. I would recommend Haris without hesitation, especially if they offer a Big Deal.

Recent Review: BY FAR the best garage door opener installer and service. There are many garage door service companies and I would have to say this being my 9th house ASAP is by far the best. They gave an accurate quote OVER the Phone, Came ON TIME, Service technician was HIGHLY skilled, and all that was asked of them was done. The service tech cleaned up EVERYTHING, got all remotes working, got car/truck home links working and this door opener and garage tuneup is so good you can not hear anything. Unbelievable!!!!! EXCEEDED EXPECTATIONS IN EVERY WAY!

Recent Review: THE HANDYMAN WHO ARRIVED WAS FRIENDLY AND HAPPILY DID THE WORK REQUESTED AND TWO OTHER SMALL THINGS THAT I ASKED (CHANGING A LIGHT BULB I COULDN'T REACH AND MOVING A LARGE BAG OF GARDEN SOIL). THE THING THAT BOTHERED ME WAS THAT HE PUT HIS TOOL CASES (NOT TOO CLEAN) ON TOP OF THE TABLECLOTH ON MY KITCHEN TABLE AND THAT HE WENT FROM JOB TO JOB WITHOUT CLEANING UP ONE THING BEFORE MOVING ON TO THE NEXT. SO, WHEN HE WAS WORKING OUT IN THE GARAGE, THERE WERE STILL TOOLS ON MY KITCHEN TABLE. TO HIS CREDIT, HE KNEW WHAT NEEDED TO BE DONE AND KINDLY SHOWED ME THAT ONE OF THE THINGS THAT NEEDED FIXING WAS MORE COSMETIC THAN STRUCTURAL AND I WAS GLAD TO HAVE THE INFORMATION. ALL IN ALL I WOULD TRY CASE AGAIN FOR OTHER WORK.
