Review by in Schaumburg, IL
He kept his promises on scheduling and his estimate (even though the crack in the foundation extended further than we estimated). Good work, and the foundation is leak-free.

Review by in Roselle, IL
The company quoted me one price, and then came out to do the work and raised the price twice. He did the job but I felt it was unprofessional to raise the prices twice.
Response by SKV Construction: What Alex is not mentioning is, it was almost a year until he told me to come out to do the work, before I came on his property I told him the price went up because of materials, he saId please come , then another crack was discovered behind the furnace and that raised the price again. Also on the last crack I charged him 50%! If he feels he was cheated by someone, he should look in the mirror, I met his dead line on selling his house, Stan Vorgias, skv const

Review by in Bartlett, IL
Hello, all. It's been a couple of days now since Stan finished his work on my foundation problems. The first thing I appreciated was Stan's telling me what likely happened when my foundation was poured that led to my concerns three decades later. This knowledge prepares me for working with the general contractor who builds my next and final home. The second thing I really appreciated was Stan's insistence on reviewing several times what I thought I wanted done, how he was interpreting what I was saying, and then reviewing both of our sets of expectations for the project. After about 10 minutes or so, we both agreed on what I was asking for, and what he was going to do. In less than two complete work days, he was finished. He accomplished everything he said he was going to do. He took a lot of time to review all of his work to assure his definition of "done" met my definition. He totally met... no, he exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend him for foundation repairs. I also recommend that when you discover a foundation problem, don't procrastinate - get it fixed, and fixed properly.

Review by in Lake In The Hills, IL
Project: Repair a Concrete Foundation
Stan, the Owner, was very responsive to my inquiry. Price was very fair. Had a crack in foundation in the garage the he repaired in a couple of hours. Drilled a couple holes, installed pins and applied special epoxy. Followed up with a report and the work. Stan knows his stuff. Would hire him again

Review by in Villa Park, IL
Stan did a good job and I would hire him again. Stan sealed four cracks in my foundation at a reasonable price. I checked for leaks with a hose test two weeks after the work was completed and all is well. Stan provides a lifetime warranty against future seepage so I know I can count on him in the future if any issues arise. Thanks Stan!

Project: Install a Poured Concrete Wall
no comment
5.0   |  
I needed my front porch slab repaired in the corner and along the edge before new porch posts could be installed. Stan did a wonderful job for a reasonable price. After that job was completed he gave me an estimate to repair two areas of my basement wall that were leaking. He did a great job and I have not had any trouble with any of the areas.

Review by in Marengo, IL
Stan came over and gave great advice on how to fix the problem myself. Was also willing to help with further advice as I completed the project. Really appreciate his direct manner about getting the job done.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.



NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
