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.
Description of Work
Porch repair and painting.
Liz L.
We liked them a lot. It was a tear down and building a new porch. They were good and gave us good porch. They were always on time. They finished the work in a timely manner and were very professional. We would work with them again. One thing that we like about them is that our client’s porch collapsed and so they had a lot of questions, lot of concerns and they really took the time to answer all the questions and go everything with us. It was the building manager and it wasn’t that easy to deal with him but these guys were quite challenging to deal with and they handled it like chance. Everybody was happy with their work. We had a good experience with them.

We used Arnie Owens - JL Construction for doing a porch for us in September of 2011.

Given the complexity of the project it went well. Of course it was not without its challenges but we like a company that a. shows up b. answers the phone and c. works to resolve issues.
Description of Work
This company is an expert in constructing open Chicago Rear Porches that comply with the stringent codes here for these structures. Our Porch and Roof Deck/Rear Room Addition and Roof replacement was much more then that and this company took it on with flying colors.
