K&S General Contracting were outstanding in every step of the process in replacing our old roof. In the quoting process ( 4 highly rated companies) Steve was professional, knowledgeable, and courteous as he listened to our questions and expectations. There was no pressure as he responded with facts and patience, With his 20 plus years as a roofer, Steve gave in depth answers that were easily understood. His concerns about customer needs to do the best roofing job possible were far more comprehensive than the other quotes that were received. No question went unanswered in our first meeting. Additional detail items concerning skylights were answered in telephone calls immediately even as we changed the size and type of skylights. No delays or the responses of getting back to you soon. Quotes were not greatly apart in costs but more important is getting the right professional to install the roof. Steve and his team were the right fit. K&S roofers supported our decision as they were punctual, hard working, knowledgeable, and courteous. All workers were aware of customer needs and willing to answer questions or explain roofing processes being done. Our roof was completed in 2 days even with 90 degree temperatures and high humidity. We now have a new updated roof with improved air flow as well as an added new skylight. Clean up process met every expectation as you could not tell that roofers were here. My wife is very pleased that none of her plants had any damage as all were covered and the workers were very careful as they did their jobs. All was just as Steve promised during the quoting process. If you read about K&S General Contracting on their website, I would support all that is stated through personal experience with our reroofing. Everyone representing the company, from Steve, Katie (Office and business), and Roofers were professional and customer driven. They are an outstanding group that works well together. If you need roof work, you should contact them.

This is a great family business. They made the entire process easy for me, and they were always available to answer my questions.

K&S General Contracting is OUTSTANDING. We had a situation where squirrels chewed a hole thru our roof and made a home in our attic. We needed a new roof and needed it quickly. While we were evicting the squirrels we received three quotes. We felt the most confident choosing K&S. Steve sat down with us to explain the entire project. He assured us that our roof would be installed in a timely manner....he was true to his word. Between Steve and Katie they kept us informed from the time the first appointment was made for the quote until the completion of our roof. The installers went over and above protecting our property and shrubs. The cleanup after the project was completed was amazing. The roof was a tear-off...I never found a nail or other roofing material. K&S is a family run business that truly values their customers. We would not hesitate to recommend them to our family and friends. Job well done. THANKS K&S for making this so easy!

They responded quickly and gave me references to go and see work that they have done in the area. The company brought many samples and started and completed the work when they said. They also cleaned up afterwards to my satisfaction.

My roof was done 2 months ago. I got the final inspection from my village a week after the work was completed. Since the roofing project was completed it has rained a lot, I had high winds for numerous days and now I have 8 inches of snow sitting on the roof. There are no problems with the work done by K & S. Also the work was done on time, the cleanup and removal of the old roofing material was excellent. Very happy with the work done by K & S Contracting of Schaumburg. And will use them again on future projects.

The folks at K&S were absolutely fantastic! I had several contractors come to quote a new roof and wasn't necessarily looking for the best price. One opened my attic and shined a flashlight up in there without physically looking at the damage and another knocked on my door with a quote and just left. We never even spoke other than him saying our number is on the quote. TJ, the gentleman from K&S that came out spent more time discussing the job with me than any other contractor I met with. He was the only one that questioned me thoroughly about what we had been experiencing and was the only one that actually went up into my attic to inspect the potential issues up close. He also showed up with the crew the morning the work started to make sure they knew what he and I had agreed to. Later in the morning after pulling the decking off they found some additional damage to the rafters we weren't aware of and called TJ, who came back out, climbed up to the roof and took pictures, then came back down and showed me what they had discovered, along with my options. He then went to the lumber store to pick up the additional material so the crew could keep working. The best part was the additional cost was nominal, along with the original quote they provided. Also, the warranty they provide was the best compared to the other contractors. When the work was completed, they did a thorough clean up and had the dumpster picked up within a couple of hours. The entire team from start to finish was polite and professional. I am extremely please with the price and service I received from K&S General Contracting and won't hesitate to recommend them to anyone who needs work done.

From start to finish, I am very satisfied with my experience with K&S General Contracting. We had our entire roof and siding replaced by the company. K&S is a family owned and operated business that truly values its customers. TJ did a wonderful job walking me through the details of the project, including the materials that would be used and the cost of the projects. He was very patient as I worked through selecting our color scheme, assisting but not pressuring me to make a selection that would be convenient for the company (as other contractors had tried to do). In addition, TJ was quick to respond to texts, calls and any concerns I raised. Katie who handled the financial side of the project, was responsive and patient. She handled the numerous calls and requests made by my insurance and mortgage companies promptly and professionally. What I ultimately paid was the exact amount that I was quoted. With an abundance of "storm chasers" ready and willing to take your money for subpar workmanship, I am very glad I did my research and selected K&S. Thanks to their hard work, we ended up with a beautifully transformed home! I highly recommend K&S General Contracting!
