What People Are Saying


  • "Thank you for the wonderful job you did remodeling our condo. The best thing you did was really listen when we told you what we wanted and how much we wanted to spend. You were great at answering phone calls and emails. I really appreciated being able to get in touch with you whenever I had a question or concern... I thought your prices were very reasonable and you didn't add charges as we went through the project so that the end cost was just what you said it would be. There are many little things that made it a pleasure to work with you, including your hard work and attitude." - Betty Krueger, Chicago.

Phil and his crew were professional, accomodating and always price conscious. The most impressive part of the entire experience was their constant desire to get it right . There were no shortcuts or excuses. They were extremely respectful of the space, our personal belongings, and our family. A life event that is usually considered one of the most stressful that you can go through was made pleasant by Phil and the rest of his associates." - Paul W., Chicago
