Matrix Basement Systems, Inc.
Lake Forest, IL Design-Build Firms
June 7, 2013
I had about a third of my basement, about 550 sq. ft., completed using the Matrix Basement System. This r-18 rated, water proof, mold proof, mildew proof system (4' by 8' panels) was perfect for protecting my investment. They also did my drop ceiling, all electrical, hvac work and installed the three doors we added. The total process took about 4 weeks. The work crew was very professional. They worked with me in coordinating the parts of this project that I had other contractors complete and made the whole experience very enjoyable. My completed basement blends in with the rest of my house. The insulated panels keeps the humidity down and the temperatures at the same level as my upstairs level. I love it.
The ABL Group
Lake Forest, IL Design-Build Firms
September 21, 2012
I've worked with ABL over the last 5 years on a number of projects in 3 homes, and I have referred them without reservation to family and friends, both of whom proceeded and hired ABL to complete the work in their homes. They are courteous, professional and complete in their approach to a project. Prompt to arrive, they leave a clean home behind, and come in on budget. Specific projects I've hired them for include: kitchen remodel (install can lights, build pantry, install dishwasher, reface cabinets and paint existing boxes in place, paint wrought iron fence, remove/install replacement windows, investigate a possible leak/spot treat mold/rebuild soffit/reinstall cabinets.
Normandy Remodeling
Lake Forest, IL Design-Build Firms
June 29, 2012
We are midway through a major renovation with Normandy Remodeling and would rate the planning process and project at the highest level, so far. Our architect, Vince Weber, has been outstanding to work with. From the start, we felt comfortable with Vince and choose to work with Normandy mainly because of him. He was patient, flexible and really listened to what we wanted to do and helped us design the home that would fit our lifestyle. Not having any renovation experience, Vince has been instrumental in helping us throughout the planning and design process. Because he understands our vision, we trust the selections he presents us with and feel confident that the overall outcome will come together beautifully. Al Lovas, our Superintendent, has been great to work with as well. He has been flexible and accommodating with changes we have made and always available when needed. Our project is on time, making great progress and looks amazing so far. We would and have highly recommended Vince and Normandy to several friends and neighbors.

The team at A. Perry Homes designed and built our home from what was a tear down cottage to what is now a luxury lake home. They listened to what was important to us and they worked with our budget. The team at A. Perry Homes had a shared passion for our project and added significant value through their creative design ideas, their relationships with contractors and suppliers and their interior design specialists. They completed our project on time and on budget and in the end they built our dream house. We highly recommend the team at A. Perry Homes

Benvenuti and Stein
Lake Forest, IL Design-Build Firms
April 18, 2013
Benvenuti and Stein remodeled our kitchen, raised the ceiling in our dining room, and refinished our hardwood floors. Their entire staff is extremely professional, polite, honest, prompt and clean. One of their design professionals, Kris, was assigned to us for the duration of the 3 month project. Weekly meetings took place so that we were always on the same page as to where the project was in terms of completion and whether any issues needed to be resolved. Any issues that did arise were resolved quickly and to our complete satisfaction. Kris spent many hours with us visiting various suppliers (granite countertops, kitchen and door hardware, appliances). Her advice was very helpful. The level of craftsmanship shown by their carpenters (custom-designed and built cabinetry and onsite carpentry for crown-molding, etc.) is amazing. The project was completed on time and we could not be happier with the outcome. We now have a kitchen, dining room, and hardwood floors that we are extremely proud of. The result is absolutely gorgeous. We recommend Benvenuti and Stein in the highest possible terms. They are simply terrific. We look forward to using them again when it comes time to remodel our basement!
BDS Design Build Remodel
Lake Forest, IL Design-Build Firms
June 25, 2013
BDS construction did an amazing job "bringing to life" a vision we had for our dining room. Customized beams (workers cut and assembled these outside in the middle of winter!), wainscoting and paint were included in our project. The workers were neat and very "perfectionistic" in their painting technique and in the care taken to keep our home clean while working on the project. It is now my favorite room in the house. in addition, we had immediate help in partially finishing our basement ( to separate play area from utilities) after a house fire. Our home has very low ceilings (home is over 100 years) and we thought we could never finish or partially finish the space. With a small space to work with, BDS framed and put up dry wall including three different types of custom doors to provide access to the furnace, laundry facilities and work space. BDS once again worked with our ideas offering many options design and price. Overall, the work was completed in neat and timely manner, communication was excellent, and the collaboration of ideas for our final design was great!
