The work was done very well. The repaired treads are better made than the weather-beaten ones when they were new.

DYNAMIC COLORS INC

We bought a 100-year-old house in late 2011 and, in the past nine years, have had more contractors than I can count work on it—plumbers, electricians, HVAC, masons, you name it. I start my review that way simply to note that we have extensive, years-long experience hiring and working with many, many contractors. Some have been good, some bad, and a few, well above average. Anthony Giangrossi and our two-man crew, Marco and Edgar, probably rank at the top of the list. The first clue came when Anthony came out to give us an estimate. He walked around the house, taking his time, noting all kinds of things, pointing issues out, explaining things. Of our multiple quotes, he came in the highest—about twice the price of the our other quotes. But the reviews we saw on Angie’s List and elsewhere were so good that something made me keep him in consideration as we sorted through the quotes. Eventually, we decided to bite the bullet and hire Anthony. We have not had a single moment when we have regretted the decision. In fact, I’d say Anthony has been the single most responsive (and responsible) contractor we’ve ever hired, period. He responds promptly, explains things clearly and understandably, and is genuinely concerned that you make the decision that will make you happiest. One major reason we went with Dynamic Colors is because of the prep work. The condition of the previous paint job was okay and the wood underneath, for the most part, was solid. But Anthony promised—and delivered—on what is probably the most thorough and careful job of prep work I’ve ever seen. It took Marco and Edgar the better part of a week to prep just two sides of the house (because of the cost, we split the job over two years). Marco and Edgar took their time, were diligent, thorough, and meticulous. Cleanup at the end of every day was so remarkable that, except for the tools and materials they left in place, you’d never have known that anything was going on at all. Once the prep and power washing were complete, painting began. Same thing: diligent, thorough, and meticulous. Nothing rushed, nothing skipped. Although we never changed our minds on the house color or the trim color, we dithered and changed our minds more than once on the stain for the front steps, for the porch, and for the front door. Anthony was supportive, patient, and helpful throughout. It took us some time to settle on what we wanted (or thought we wanted) and all three were amazing throughout the entire process. The house (at least the two sides they worked on) are in better shape than when we began. They silently made little (or not-so-little) repairs, fixed things, took care in disassembling and reassembling things (like the front door hardware). One day, I saw Marco cleaning the storm windows before he put them back in place. Cleaning the storm windows! I would venture to guess that 99+% of painters out there are going to do a beautiful job of simply putting the windows back in place. How many of them will actually take the time to clean every storm window, front and back, before replacing it? We still aren’t certain what to do about the front steps and railings, but Anthony was there every step of the way to offer advice on how to proceed so that if we change our minds by next spring, he can revise what they’ve done with the least amount of time and effort. One downspout has been leaking noisily since they replaced it. I can’t emphasize clearly enough how attentive Anthony has been in getting that resolved. I wish they cost less. But they are worth every penny they charge. We have not regretted choosing them for an instant, are very pleased with the job, and would recommend them without any hesitation whatsoever.

I have no complaints about the porch repair. However, after completion of the project, Jacek Lawrenz (owner) friended me on FB. Thereafter, he posted a meme on my FB wall publicly criticizing my decision to take my 9-year-old son to the Women's March in Washington. He consistently posts "fake news" from sites like "Eagle Rising" and "Silence is Consent". He has attacked women, muslims, and other minorities on FB. If you are against this type of bullying and abuse, I suggest finding another contractor.

Kevin went above and beyond to clear city building violations , his crew did masonary work, new concrete driveway , new drain , and fixed my porch. Kevin waited 6 hours to meet the inspector and get the violations signed and cleared. He and his crew were punctual, best price among other bids, work was completed earlier than estimated.

Fortune Restoration
5.0
Fortune has a wonderful 5 year warranty. Three years after they repaired key elements of my porch I thought the drainage was adversely effected by the restoration, causing water to run down one side on the brick of the house. They installed gutters, fixed the mortar, and repainted as part of the warranty. Near the end of the project, I began to realize that this was a problem with the original design of the house and not a result of their work three years ago. Once I realized my mistake, I tried to pay them, but they refused. I will be using them again in a few years for total painting of the exterior of the house.

James was very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable, but suggested I consult another firm that specialized in exterior porch work and would be more cost effective He did look at the issue in detail and discussed how it could be remedied and specifically what to ask for . We shared our love of old houses and I appreciated his input,

James rebuilt our front steps including the replacement two historic railing posts/columns. He replaced the railings to match the existing railing to remain. He then painted the entire porch and railings. He was easy to work with and flexible, he painted accents on the columns and dealt with an old rubble post foundation for no extra charge. We were happy with the work so we had him come back about a month later to paint our first floor. We were also satisfied with that work.

We set up an appointment for 9:00 on Friday, October 10. At 9:20, a woman from the office called and told me that the estimator was stuck in a meeting in Chicago and couldn't make it. Even if the meeting hadn't run long, I don't see how the person could have made it from the city to our location, but I rescheduled for 12:30 on Thursday, October 16. At 12:55, I called. I was informed that the estimator had just called the office and requested I email pictures of the problem so that he could be prepared with materials when he came out. So he never had any intention of coming to my home at the scheduled time. Had I not called, I don't know if anyone would have contacted me while I was waiting. The organization had almost a week to let me know they would have liked to have seen pictures. I rearranged my schedule two different days to accommodate them, and both times were an utter waste. I have never submitted a review before, but I was encouraged to try them based on the positive reviews, and I thought I should share my experience. Perhaps they do good work if you get to that point, but we never got the opportunity.

Recent Review: i had met with five companies total for our porch and siding. Some estimates were one or two lines of explanation for a $15000 job. The Siding Group gave a very detailed, complete bid which covered everything they would be doing. Mr. Borowski spent a lot of time going over the product choices, the details of the installation. We then decided to go with them for the porch, and the process for that bid was just as complete. The crew showed up early, prepared for the day and then started at 8 every day. They worked quickly and efficiently. The owner of the Siding Group stopped by frequently to make sure everything went smoothly. The crew cleaned up daily. The porch and siding are beautiful.

Recent Review: Had a leaky back porch roof that had been done in old fashion (nails) and bad masonry, and resulted in leaking that caused holes drywall to cave in section of porch roof. Called several roofers over months; they were either unable to do the job, charged excessive rates or unresponsive. Second City responded, provided a competitive quote quickly and (after some scheduling issues due to weather) completed the job as planned. They were respectful, answered questions and addressed concerns. No leaks in new roof (I know b/c we haven't fixed drywall yet). Also referred an AC guy who did good work as well - would use again.

Recent Review: It went extremely well. Adam returned our inquiry promptly and then worked around our very hectic schedules. He listened to what we wanted and designed the perect space for us. The job went smoothly (from permits to carpenters, electricians and inspectors) and was completed two days ahead of schedule. [There was already a foundation in place (7ft x 12ft) from a deck that we removed, so they used that footprint reducing the cost of the project.]

Recent Review: Although our previous porch was in good, stable condition the city cited the porch for not being up to code. This forced us into a position to modify the porch up to the current code or replace the porch. We recieved 3 bids from Angies list companies. After hearing feedback from the 3 contractors we realized it is not financally logical to modify an existing porch vs replacing new. Frackeil handled everything. All 3 companies provided similar ideas and services, but Frackiel provided the most reasonable estimate. After accepting the estimate and putting a 1/3 down payment a date to begin work was scheduled 3 weeks in advance. They provided the engineer drawings and submitted them to the city. They secured the permit and began work on time. They secured the building materials, removed the existing porch in 1 day, and weather permitting had the new porch built in 5 days. A final inspection date was scheduled and they met the inspector there for final approval. Shortly after I attended my city court date and the violation and case was cleared. Frackiel did not bother me for payment until final approval from the city was provided. Bonnie was very helpful when it came to dealing with the city and helping me decide between a yellow pine or steel porch. She always was available and provided the necessary info on the phone. The workers were clean, diligent, and worked in a timely manner.

Recent Review: The contractors were very professional. They came on time and worked diligently on the task at hand. They were so awesome they even provided some things we did not ask for. For example, we did not have a banister that lead to our basement from the outside, they built one. They even gave us a trellis under our stairs. They worked so hard, that they even worked through high winds, rain and hail. These guys were great! Hard working, kind and considerate. I can not say enough good things about this company. They deserve extremely high marks.

Recent Review: I called Fortune for an estimate and Tom was here the next day to take a look. I asked for estimate on repainting our house and fixing some problems with settling on one corner of the porch. Pretty quickly Tom determined that our house didn't need a full paint job, just some minor work, and suggested that we hire someone better suited to small jobs. He gave me a recommendation of who to call to find a contractor for that. The porch is settling, but only slightly and the real issue is that the storm door no longer closes due to the slope. The repair was going to be fairly involved, but Tom made some suggestions for how I could fix the door issue myself at no cost. In the end I won't be hiring Fortune Restoration, but only because Tom showed me that I didn't need to. This is the kind of honesty I look for in a contractor. Some day I may have a bigger job and Fortune is going to be at the top of my call list.

Recent Review: Overall, the job went great. The porch came down. The new porch went up. The roof was put on. Gutters and downspout were attached. Electrical work was upgraded with motion sensor lights. (An unexpected bonus.) At the final inspection we found a few items that needed to be addressed. They were taken care of in less than 48 hours. (Cigarette buts had been left in our side lot and they were picked up as well.) Sitko constructed a well built, structurally sound porch. The reveal for the metal brackets was slightly unsightly, but that's the new building code. The new porch will last for at least another 100 years. Sitko did a wonderful job. No complaints whatsoever. I would highly recommend J. Sitko Construction and will use them again.
