Review by in Fox Lake, IL
Brian Our 3 bathrooms were 22 years old. We had a couple attempts at a refresh with things like faucets, towel bars and shower doors however just not getting it done. So we decided to get 3 quotes. One of the quotes was absolutely through the roof, the other two were pretty close. The biggest difference was the three C's Lotz Custom Carpentry offered. 1. Care - Treated the job like it was his own bathroom 2. Customization - Sky was the limit, used his experience to design the ultimate makeover. Offered ideas that I thought I would only see it a magazine, not my bathrooms! They even shopped with us! 3. Costs - Kept pricing in check, helped us prioritize, it wasn't just add, add, add! His team came in and got it done. They worked neatly and showed up ready to work every day. We've all been through the got the job and then workers don't show or work limited days or hours. We didn't have to do a thing other than stay out of there way. All three makeovers were completed on time and EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS! Thank you Lotz Custom Carpentry!

Review by in Round Lake Beach, IL
Brian Lotz and his team remodeled the entire first floor including a complete remodel of kitchen and bathroom. Project was completed on time and within the budget. This was my first major remodeling project so, I had no experience with contractors. I selected Brian based on my interview and his honest responses. I had a specific date in mind to start and end the project but, Brian declined due to his workload, anyone else would have said yes so, they get the contract first and worry about completing it later. Brian is very experienced and he has the best team. The most important quality is that he listens to you and does not come off know it all. He respects your wishes and work with you. I could not be happier with the way my project turned out. There was not a single day when someone from Brian's team was not at my home working. I would recommend Brian to anyone looking for an honest, hard working contractor.

We originally brought Brian and his team in just to remodel our master bathroom. But then we decided to do a few more things. We had them add stacked stone and a cedar mantel to our fireplace, partially remodel our guest bath, put hardwood floors in our master bedroom, loft, stairs and re-stain the existing hardwood floors we already had. They also built a book shelf in a place that didn't have anything before and it looks like it has always been there. Brian had great ideas and helped us out pick out counter tops, tile, flooring, paint colors and all the other accessories. His team was great and they were here every day of the remodel. They cleaned up every night before they went home and explained what they had done that day. Brian is very calm and ensures that everything is going in as expected throughout the process. I appreciated the communication we got from him on a regular basis and that he wanted us to be happy with what his team had delivered. Everyone who has seen the changes that were made have been very impressed. We would highly recommend his company to anyone who is doing remodeling work and would definitely hire him again!

Review by in Mundelein, IL
Brian and his guys are the best! This was our first experience remodeling and Brian helped us the whole way. His suggestions are what I love most about my new kitchen and family room. I never dreamed I could have such a beautiful kitchen. All the guys were polite and patient. (Even when I changed my mind about the paint color in the middle of the job). They cleaned up every day before they left. They took such care with everything they did, you'd think they were working on their own home. Words can't express how happy I am with this remodel. I can't wait for them to do our bathroom. We would definitely recommend them to our friends.

We hired Brian's team to add a Brick Paver walkway, Cement Patio,and Custom Built Closet. Their work was absolutely perfect. The room that never had a closet looks as if the closet has always been there. The walkway and small patio are gorgeous and we hope to add steps down our hill with an additional patio next year! The team was very professional and every night cleaned up their workspace area making it a very pleasant experience to be 'under construction'. I would highly recommend them to anyone and will be calling upon them again for myself as well.

Review by in Ingleside, IL
Brian and his crew did an outstanding job. Anything I even mentioned or even hinted, he made sure it was taken care of. I would highly recommend him for any home remodeling or landscaping project. I have already booked him for another job.

I was extremely happy with my experience, from the initial estimate to completion of the project. They were very timely, quick to make estimate, and were able to get going and complete project within couple weeks. Pleasant employees and very accommodating to specific requests. Very happy with my new front patio and was able to enjoy it sooner than I thought and the price was right!

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.
