Description

3rd Gen is the highest rated local Painting and Remodeling Contractor located in both Madison WI and Western Springs IL. 3rd Gen specializes in Interior Painting and Exterior Painting, Kitchen and Bathroom Remodeling, and Custom Deck Building. 3rd Gen's owners, Matt Schmidt & Andre Kazimierski, are passionate about helping homeowners create their dream home without the stress of a typical remodel. Andre and Matt come from strong family values and a reputation for integrity and hard work. Matt's grandfather built his own construction company from the ground up in Westmont, IL while Andre's mother, Sophia, built her own home cleaning company out of Riverside, IL as a Polish immigrant & flipped houses. They first met while in college working as managers for a construction company. After a few years as Co-VPs at the company, they both went off on their own to open separate businesses. They are both very driven entrepreneurs so when Matt decided to move back to the Midwest, he reconnected with Andre to see if he would like to start up a new construction company. Andre and Matt are experts in not only all things painting & remodeling but experts in the intangibles of running a business with integrity. These intangibles combined with their lifetimes of experience in construction have helped rapidly build 3rd Gen as the highest rated & most trusted painting and remodeling contractor in Western Springs IL & Madison WI....

My contract stated they would prep the walls, cover all nail holes and do 2 coats of paint. They showed up the first day with only white paint and said the company they by paint from only had white paint. The second day they showed up over an hour late. They turned a 3 day job into a 2 day job and they finished up in under 8 hours each day. They actually bragged to me about how quickly they finish...

Exterior painting seems fine; it was two coats of spray painting rather than brush. Deck staining was poor with significant peeling after only 8 months. 3rd Gen could not match the stain already on the deck and unwilling to simply buy a gallon or so of the Behr's paint that would have matched the existing stain. Painters left without notice at end of the job with some work unfinished. Downspouts o...

We’re very happy with the work 3rd Gen Painting and Remodeling did on our basement in summer 2019. From the start, they seemed to understand what we were asking for, which was a nice and functional basement (with bedroom, bathroom, bar, and theater area) but not necessarily top of the line. The offer they provided was competitive and in our price range, while other groups we spoke with provided es...

Work was subbed out to independent contractor who told me he had just moved here from Chicago. Colors were not matched to formula provided, but were matched to chips. Painter started with satin finish on 100 year old wood siding and flat finish on the trim. I was concerned about he appearance and questioned the painter, but he said he always uses satin on siding. Halfway through the job, I called ...

We chose 3rd Gen because our neighbors recommended them. Matt and his team did a really nice job refinishing our deck and re-screening our porch. The guys worked over 12 hours a day to get the job done. Matt painted a swatch of the color I picked for the porch and when I didn't like it he was happy to bring me more options so that we could choose another color that we really liked. We got another ...

Finding the right company to paint your house can be intimidating. There are so many companies, and it's hard to know which are genuine and which will be a nightmare. In that respect, I hit the jackpot with 3rd Generation. Matt and his crew were talented, smart, hard-working, detail-oriented and fun to have around. At one point during the project, Matt said it really just comes down to doing what ...

We hired 3rd Gen to renovate our first floor powder room and pantry. Matt and his team were great. Matt was on site almost every day checking in on the work and making sure we understood next steps and giving us updates on their progress. We appreciated the fact that they stayed true to the original timeline. It is one of the best experiences we have had with a contractor!

What an awesome experience! I cannot recommend 3rd Gen any more highly. From the initial call I made to Andre through the 2-day wall repair and painting job expertly completed by Alex and Patrick, it was one of the best experiences I've ever had with a contractor. Andre is very focused on delivering excellent customer service, and Alex and Patrick were certainly excellent tradesmen. I couldn't be ...

We highly recommend 3rd Gen, they more than delivered on a deck install for us and were very accommodating by offering to help us out with a few other projects while on site. The entire project was seamless and efficient from demo through cleanup and they improved on the previous design greatly. Matt and Joe were a pleasure to deal with and we would use them again in a second.
