Review by in Naperville, IL
Just wanted some artist concepts of attached garage on our house. Did several very good ones. I will use them when we decide to do the project.

John was very reassuring when I called him in a panic about the balcony we are trying to build. We had already hired a contractor and found out we were not going to satisfy the codes of the village, and had to hire an architect in order to do so. I had never had to do that before, and thought it would too expensive. John came to meet us right away so he could get started on the plans. The village codes are very numerous and strict, and John found a way to help us get exactly what we wanted, without having to sacrifice any space to meet these codes. At the beginning of the process, I asked John if he could give me a ball park on how much his services would cost, and the final bill was pretty much spot on what said it would be. John is a very talented architect with a kind and knowledgeable disposition. It was our pleasure to work with him. I would use his services again, and highly recommend him to others.

I was asign to Mark who works with John. Mark is very knowledgeble in his trade. I showed him what I have in mind and he took the ball and ran with it. He showed me his plans and pointed out to me the current building codes and changes that would have to be incorpated in the project I want to accomplish. I appre- ciate his affort. I would not hesitate to cal in the future if and when I have other pro- jects of this nature. Thank you for your help

Mr Hrivanak came out for a look at the project my husband and I want to do. But with Mr. Hrivanak input we have decide the project is not possible with out a great deal more investment (with a poor returned on investment).We are now going to finish a few of the projects we have going and put our house on the market late this year or next spring. We will be contacting Mr. Hrivnak when we start the process of designing a new home. We both found Mr. Hrivnak truthful and upfront with us on our project.

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)
