Exterior Home Renovation in Arlington Heights, IL

Having replaced the first phase of windows for the O’Donnells in 2018, the 2nd phase of the exterior remodel was the complete replacement of their existing roof, siding and 2nd story windows. The existing roof had 2 layers of old asphalt shingles, which were removed down to the wood decking in order to facilitate the installation of the Certainteed ShingleMaster 4star System Warranty, which utilizes all of Certainteed’s roof components, such as the ice and water shield, felt, starter strip, ventilation components, ridge cap shingles and shingles. The existing vinyl siding was replaced with James Hardie HardiePlank Horizontal siding in a 6” Reveal with a Cedarmill (woodgrain) finish. The siding was matched with HardieTrim around the windows and doors and as outside/inside corner posts, in a smooth finish. Lastly, in an effort to really enhance the curb appeal, we updated the front porch by wrapping the existing porch posts in composite material and installing Fir tongue and groove beaded soffit material, which was then stained to match the front door. The new LED recessed lights complete the look and add a delicate but inviting touch to this colonial from the street level. https://www.bakbrothers.com/projects/exterior-home-renovation-in-arlington-heights-il

It went well. Norbert worked with me in finding the correct windows and listened to my concerns about getting the large picture window installed on the second floor of my house. His crew was professional and polite. My wife and I were pleased by how clean they left the various work sites.

Working with Norbert and his crew was a pleasure. He was very considerate about our needs, and made every effort to respond to our questions and requests. The BAK crew were professional and polite. They did an amazing job of cleaning up in the different areas they were in— both inside and outside!

We hired Bak Brothers to replace our roof, gutters, fascia, add leaf guards, and also do some masonry work. We were extremely please with their initial responsiveness, price, and the detail in their estimate. The work started just before the Covid stay at home order, and we loved the roof but the setting of the gutters was not quite to our liking. The leaf guards were also a little visible and a l...

I requested Bak Brothers to come out and provide an estimate to replace/repair siding and windows on my home. Ben Bak came out on 7/17/19 to look at the property and take measurements. I was told that I would receive an estimate within a few days. When I hadn't received an estimate by the end of the month, I called the office and requested the estimate. Days later, Ben left a message on my vm to l...

Ben Bak returned my initial call the same day. Upon hearing the problem and further clarifications on the size and type of glass, he quoted the price. He assigned his associate, Steve, who came promptly and made necessary measurements, and ordered the glass. It took a while before Steve came back to install the glass; he called in the meantime, though, explaining that this was not a usual order an...

We hired Bak Brothers to install our windows and doors for our home renovation project. We had 23 Marvin Integrity windows, 1 Marvin sliding door, and 2 Menards prehung fiberglass entry doors. Throughout the whole process, Ben was responsive and punctual. I was very happy with the pace of the installs, the windows functioned very well after install, and the insulation appeared thorough. The doors ...

It was professionally done perfectly executed. The young man who fixed the exterior was courteous and thoughtful, and worked at a good pace. The painter called at the end of that day and asked what time he could start the next morning. We agreed on 7:30 and he was right on time. He was also a pro, and also courteous and a pleasure to work with.

Then realized they could do roofing and possibly some masonry work, maybe even some exterior painting and light carpentry.... along with the windows. They seemed interested when they met with me, but after that, it was the last I heard from them. All in all the jobs I priced out reached about $30k. I don't feel I need chase people down to spend this kind of money, so I went with other companies th...

Description of Work
We hired them to renovate one of our rooms, which included taking down two walls, adding bookshelves, new windows, interior painting, and lighting. They also repainted a second room and re-did the lighting. The house is very old (built in 1905) so they updated the electrical wiring.
