Review by in Harvey, IL
Working with Jim and Mark was a very pleasurable experience. I was at wit's end trying to find a company willing to address my floor joist problem caused by termites. After viewing my floor joists, Mark relieved a lot of my anxiety with his repair solution of providing support to the joists rather than removing and replacing them. He confirmed my observations that the joists were not badly damaged even though another contractor claimed that they were and had recommended removal and replacement. I can't be more satisfied with the work that took place.

Review by in Wheaton, IL
The only reason for the customer service rating was because the estimate was not delivered as timely as it could have been. The work was well done and on time.

I needed some steel beams to replace the jacks I had in my basement. These guys were the GREATEST!!! Not only did they have plenty of patience with me since I'm a first time homebuyer but they also shared so much knowledge on the way my old house was constructed. they worked with me throughout the process and on my very short time frame (only 4 days from estimate to completion). They provided me with a letter to show the village so that I wouldn't have any issues later down the line. If I could rate them 100☆ I would. They are extremely professional, tidy, and have amazing customer service; definitely better than any other contractor I've dealt with!
Response by American Beam & Steel, Inc.: Thank you Laura .. we appreciate the feedback and the business! Given the nature of our work in structural repair, it's important that you understood, not only what we were doing to fix the problem, but also why the problem occurred. In your case, most homeowners are unaware that the permanent use of temporary jack posts in supporting structural wood beams or steel beams is not permissible by code. Home inspectors immediately flag these as a structural code violation. Slightly raising your flooring above and replacing the temporary columns with permanent steel lally columns should have you set for years to come! Congratulations again on your new home! Mark

My Mother in Laws home's Structural Beam was ravaged by Termites. I had several companies come by and offer various solutions at inflated prices, and sometimes along with methods that caused me great concern. Mark, from American Beam and Steel was selected after he PERSONALLY came by, totally evaluated my problem, COMPLETELY explained how he would replace my Beam with a new steel Beam, at a very good price. I offered to remove a glass block window for him to deliver Beams to area (as ALL other Contractors had requested) and Mark said that was unnecessary! He provided a very comprehensive Contract, including a very specific time line. He completed work AS CONTRACTED, without delay, & cleaned up the area after completion. I am 65 years old and have had MANY experiences with home repair contractors in the past, some good, many not so good. BUT THIS WAS BY FAR THE BEST experience I have had with a contractor and would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone needing BEAM/Structural & Carpentry services. And this company REALLY has an affinity for SAVING OLDER STRUCTURES as indicated on their website!

Review by in Oak Lawn, IL
My project required a major reconstruction of 2 stories of an exterior wall. American Beam & Steel had the expertise to organize and complete the work to its original condition professionally and without incident. They also achieved my wish to salvage the existing hard to match siding and reinstall it to retain the original appearance of the exterior. This was handled beyond my expectations. I would strongly recommend using American Beam & Steel for any and all similar major reconstruction projects, as I will if the need should arise in the future.

Mark and his crew were extremely professional, and their level of knowledge and craftmanship was beyond comforting. I highly recommend AB&S for any carpentry requirements.

We hire Mark to do some repairs to our Three Season Room. When they started the project they immediately found additional water & insect damage. Mark was able to get additional materials to complete the job as originally projected. We really appreciated the extra effort and love the finished product!! Thanks again Mark!

Review by in Palos Park, IL
Mark came out and delivered an estimate on some structural work that needed to be performed on my house. He was courteous and thorough in examining the issue and providing an estimate. The estimate was more comprehensive any of the other two bids, and I liked Mark's level of competency when he explained what would be required, so I chose him to do the work. I'm very glad that I did, because he and his team were excellent. They did the work in a reasonable amount of time, thoroughly and professionally, and cleaned up after it was done. Mark took me down into the crawlspace to show me the work they'd done, and went the extra mile in explaining the condition of the foundation to me. It's rare to find anyone who is a combination of competent, personable, and professional and Mark and his team were just that, so I would very highly recommend him for any kind of structural work.
