Project: Paint a Kitchen
Ken and his crew have painted almost every room in my house, repaired drywall, replaced stair treads/banisters and installed wainscoting in two rooms. The work is reasonably priced and always professional. I highly recommend Illinois Wall Doctor.

Project: Repair Drywall
We hired the Wall Doctors to do some work around some skylights. They removed wood paneling and replaced with drywall, finished and painted. They also replaced existing ceiling fan/ lights with new ones provided by us. In and out in under 2 days and did a great job with the work and cleaning up after themselves. Reasonably priced and quality work.

Review by in Oswego, IL
Project: Repair Drywall
I have hired Illinois Wall Doctors twice. First, to hang and tape drywall in my basement. Second, to repair the ceiling in my kitchen that had been damaged by a plumbing leak. In both instances, Ken (the owner/President) was very prompt in responding to my call and providing a quote. Sad as it is to say, in my experience, this is a rarity when hiring contractors--very few returned my calls and some didn't even provide quotes after meeting with me. Ken's company was far ahead of his peers in customer communication. Most importantly, Ken's drywall guys arrived promptly at their scheduled time, completed the work efficiently, and did an excellent job. I cannot tell that they patched my ceiling. Ken's rates for my two drywall jobs were very reasonable. His installation and taping guys were very friendly and helpful. Additionally, Ken provided excellent plumber and electrician referrals to complete my related jobs. Illinois Wall Doctors is now my first call for any drywall work or repair.

Review by in Aurora, IL
Project: Repair Drywall
The individual that performed the work was courteous and did a good job with the quality of the repairs. However, after the work was completed, the owner (Ken) attempted to send me an additional invoice for work that I originally asked to be included in the original estimate. While he may have misunderstood the scope of the work during text exchanges, he should have come to the worksite to confirm the nature of the work if there was any confusion or he was going to dicker over the replacement of a 2 foot by a 6-inch piece of drywall. While this would have been just a minor blip in an overall adequate experience, the owner continued to text me with sarcastic comments and emojis, questioning my integrity and threatening to sue me if I gave him a negative review that (in his mind) mischaracterized my experience. I can assure you this is a very balanced discussion with respect to only the second complaint in my life I have ever felt compelled to share on a public forum. Overall, the owner considerably soiled what could have been a good experience. If you decide to contract with this company, I would recommend that you establish the scope of work in great specificity (do not rely on texts); however, I would recommend that you chose a company that appreciates your business and is not owned by an individual that insults customers when an agreement does not meet his understanding.
Response by Illinois Wall Doctor, Inc.: This is not at all why this customer and I had an issue, this customer knowingly took advantage of my company, he conducted himself in a deceptive manner bringing about the problem at hand: The customer provided me with pictures of the repairs needed (as is always done), he had replaced a tub surround (not the tub) and needed the drywall around it replaced and finished... he did however have a wainscot that he removed on the lower 30" or so. I saw that the drywall had been damaged upon homeowners removal of the wainscot in that area and I asked if that needed to be repaired as well, the homeowner said no, I will be replacing the wainscot. That was fine with me as it was a cosmetic issue and would as he stated be covered upon install of new wainscot. When my employee arrived the homeowner instructed him to make these repairs after having told me they were not needed his estimate did not include them. I was then notified by the employee of the added repairs and reached out to the customer immediately by phone and text WITH NO RESPONSE, I instructed my employee to have the homeowner call me... HE DID NOT. The employee was instructed to complete all and I would just bill the balance of added repair a minor charge of $30 mind you. Once the job was complete and my employee had left the home the homeowner who previously couldn't answer a phone or text or call me while my man was on site suddenly/CONVENIENTLY became avail for reply and refused the added charge. This homeowner took advantage of my company, there was NO MISUNDERSTANDING, I knew the scope of the job and I assure you so did the homeowner, he like so many wanted something for nothing. My issue with the homeowner was not in the $$ for the repair, it was in the underhanded way he conducted himself... and yes, because of it I do question his integrity. There were no threats cast I simply informed the homeowner while he has the right to post any review he chooses if he mis characterizes the events and falsely disparages a 4.9* rated company (with hundreds of reviews online) I will sue him... In America we still have the right to defend that which we have worked so hard for !! I did encourage this homeowner to get himself something nice for Christmas... ON ME.

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)
