Review by in Waukegan, IL
We hired Tim to remodel our bathroom. Everything had to go; down to the studs! In only 3 weeks Tim built us a beautiful walk in shower, new lights, exhaust fan, sinks, counter tops etc. The tile in the shower and floor is perfect. Tim is great to work with, keeping us informed every step of the way. He understood our vision. He is great to work with. We would highly recommend Creative Building Solutions!!

We hired Tim to remodel our 50+ year kitchen. He brought the kitchen to code first and then did an amazing job with every detail of the remodel. My husband and I could not be happier and highly recommend Creative Building Solutions. Additionally, he communicates in a timely manner and keeps to his budget. Thank you Tim.

Project: Build or Replace a Deck or Non-Masonry Porch
Tim Shurson of Creative Building Solutions did an absolutely fantastic job on building us a new Trex deck. My wife and I found Tim to be very knowledgeable and honest. He exceeded all our expectations in meeting deadlines and our budget. His craftsmanship is superior! I highly recommend Tim if you are considering any home improvement project!

We hired Creative Building Solutions to update one of our smaller bathrooms. We are very happy with the process and outcome. Prompt, professional, and courteous, good workmanship, and flexible in working around our schedule. We will now be doing a complete remodel of one of our other bathrooms.

Review by in Chicago, IL
It was a great experience working with Tim. From the start, he's partnering with you to understand your goals (design, materials, budget, timing, ...). I greatly appreciated his consultation (e.g., dealing with the surprises behind the walls, helping me to realize what I wanted wasn't always what I needed); his suggestions kept me on budget. We connected through a referral, and I would and already have referred him to others and would use him again for other projects.. Love the "new" bathroom; thanks Tim!

Review by in Waukegan, IL
Tim and his crew were amazing to work with. Tim's approach was to have us very involved from the start. He believes in a collaborative approach. Tim had previously built a family room addition for us, so it only seemed natural to contact him for our next project. We had our kitchen remodeled and our basement. The craftsmanship was better than expected. The crews were ALWAYS onsite when they were scheduled. Tim was very communicative and we were very pleased with the outcome. We would DEFINITELY recommend Creative Building Solutions to anyone.

Review by in Buffalo Grove, IL
I am an attorney whose practice concentrates on construction litigation. Tim has been my builder of choice for nearly a decade, and with good reason. During these many years, Tim constructed a three story addition at my home, and then later completely gutted and remodeled our kitchen. The resulting work is gorgeous. Tim is a consummate professional. His work is of the highest quality. He is honest to a fault and completely reliable. Given my unique experience in the industry, Tim is one in a million. He is the rare honest contractor who truly cares about his work and about making his customers happy.

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.
