Review by in Lake Zurich, IL
Alex and the team at Quintessential Renovations were great from the first time we met them. Alex showed up promptly to give us a quote and, unlike the 3 other companies we met with. Gave us an estimate with a breakdown of costs in addition to spending time upfront to explain what needed to be done, and what his crew would handle. The Quintessential team tackled the permitting process (even for the drain tile work performed by another company), complete tear out of the finished basement down to concrete, and the rebuild. Scheduling was complex due to the multi-step process and our request for time to make sure the drain tile repair worked through the spring rains, but Alex made it all work perfectly. The entire team of guys was amazing to work with and went out of their way to ensure our comfort with what they were doing and our satisfaction with the work. They kept the rest of the house clean, and always cleaned up carefully when they left. I have never seen the attention to detail with cleaning displayed by this crew. They went above and beyond helping to move things back into the remodeled space. They turned our dark and musty basement into space we want to spend time in and will actually enjoy using ourselves, and entertaining guests while remaining very close to the quoted price. Absolutely incredible transformation.

Everyone at Quintessential Renovations are professional, kind, efficient, trustworthy, helpful, and easy to talk to. They helped me get through a messy insurance claim. Working with Alex and his team made the claims process a lot easier. I would definitely hire them again!

Review by in Buffalo Grove, IL
Working with Alex and the team at Quintessential was a wonderful experience. Alex kept us updated every step of the way with what was planned for each day and what time to expect the crew. The crew was friendly, clean, and most importantly did quality work. Our basement is beautiful, and it is a much more usable and functional space now. We are very happy with our choice to work with Quintessential.
Response by Quintessential Renovations, Inc.: Thank you. I am so glad that you are happy with the final product!

Project: Remodel a Basement
We hired Quintessential Renovations to remodel an old, run-down basement in a 100 year old house. Alex impressed us right away with his ideas for the project. It wasn't just us telling him what we wanted, but rather Alex actively building on our ideas and suggesting options. Quintessential was the second highest of four bids but we went with them because Alex conveyed to us, more than any other bidder, that he would have sufficient attention to detail and deliver a fully finished look. Believing this was the best value, we went with Alex. We were not disappointed. Alex had great ideas throughout the project and we love our new basement. The skilled workers that are actually employees of Quintessential, the carpenter and electrician, are fantastic. On time, reasonably cleaned up, courteous, happy to hear our concerns during the project - really top rate professionals. A few issues arose with the subbed out drywall and painting, but this was rectified when Alex was also unhappy with the work and brought in a better crew at no cost to us to finish the work. We also had an issue with the supply of new custom windows that dragged out for many months, but in the end Alex was (finally) able to find a suitable supplier on the third try and the windows look great. Would hire again.
Response by Quintessential Renovations, Inc.: Thank you for the review! I'm glad you are pleased with the final results on your project. I do apologize for the delay in getting the windows. As you know, it was very difficult finding replacement windows for your basement due to the fact that your style is no longer produced. Luckily we found someone to custom make new windows for your basement. Hope all is well and I hope to hear from you again soon for any future projects.

We are in the middle of a first floor remodel, which I think is more relevant than a review done at the end of the project when everything is new and shiny, because we are really in the thick of it right now. We are living totally upstairs and can t use our first floor at all because of the kitchen remodel and taking down walls, moving a bathroom, etc. Yet I can honestly say, Alex and his crew are phenomenal. They are here 7-5 M-F and have worked quite a few Saturdays to keep our project moving. They are super knowledgeable, easy to be around, honest, conscientious and neat. Alex is always available and checks in with us in person and on the phone frequently. My only regret is that I haven t let Alex make all of our design decisions from the start. He says he s not a designer, but he flips house on the side and the houses he flips are GORGEOUS. When he shows us pictures of his work as examples we find ourselves saying- make our house look exactly like that! He s like Chip and Joanna Gaines rolled into one with a contemporary eye, but he can work with any style. He really knows his stuff inside and out from demolition to framing, installation, design, you name it! We ve hired other companies before, and interviewed quite a few for this project, but Quintessential takes the cake. Best decision ever!!!
Response by Quintessential Renovations, Inc.: Lara, Thank you very much for the kind words! I greatly appreciate the mid progress review. I can?t wait to showcase your final results here soon.

Review by in Libertyville, IL
Alex and the team at Quintessential Renovations are great! When we were trying to get our bathroom remodeled we received multiple quotes. We chose Alex and his team because not only was Alex knowledgable but he was willing to work with us to get our design down for such a small space while others were quick to say no. They were also efficient, valued our time and were considerate about cleanliness. Now we only trust Quintessential Renovations for all our projects and will continue to recommend them to other families.
Response by Quintessential Renovations, Inc.: Thank you Elaine! We look forward to working with you again soon.

Can't say enough about Quintessential Renovations Inc! Alex and his crew delivered above and beyond our expectations. They put a new bathroom in our basement, replaced all of our interior doors throughout the house, laid new flooring in two other bathrooms and fixed water damage. They came everyday and were on time!! The craftsmanship was outstanding! Will absolutely use them for future projects.

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.

    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
