We had a great experience. Our basement came out perfect. He was always on time and didn t do any other jobs until ours was done. He is trustworthy and our basement looks amazing.

Project: Remodel a Basement
Derek is by far the best contractor of any type I have ever hired. This review is long overdue as Derek finished our basement about two years ago and I always wanted to say what a great work he did and say how much I appreciate it. Derek's quote was extremely competitive to begin with. One might think you get what you paid for. Not so with Derek. Derek is a true professional in that he worked while being as least intrusive to our family as possible, calmly answered all of our questions, and his craftsmanship was second to none because he was paying attention every details. He worked very efficiently and cleaned up at the end of each day. I always speak proudly of Derek whenever someone asks about who finished our basement or if someone is looking to do a home remodeling project.

Review by in Skokie, IL
I recently worked with Derrick at Systema Construction, Inc and I believe he is one of the best general contractor in Chicago land, his measurements are 100% accurate , clean / crisp with no shortcuts, explains everything in advance, give helpful / very technical suggestions, and works great with customer. I hired his company for two projects, basement finish and addition of brand new master bathroom at the house extension which was added by previously owners. The work was done with great details and perfection. He always showed up on time and worked the full day in order to complete his project within promised time-frame. I loved the fact that he kept everything protected and cleaned up after his work was finished. I'm extremely satisfied with this company and I'm sure to use him again as well as recommend him to all my friends and family. In fact, I am planning to remodel my kitchen in my house and I've already called him for estimate. By the way, his quotes are very competitive too!!!!! Attached pictures speak for themselves. I normally don't write reviews unless I am completely blown away and 100% satisfied with the work performed!!!!

Did a great job with the project. Kept a very tidy workspace and was very responsive to any questions and concerns. I would not hesitate hiring him again for any future projects.

Review by in Naperville, IL
Darek was amazing to work with, he is knowledgeable, professional & has an eye for detail. He remodeled our basement & it was by far the best experience with a contractor we have ever had. I highly recommend Darek, between the pricing & his impeccable craftsmanship it made the remodel so much smoother.

Review by in Palatine, IL
We could not have asked for a better experience in finishing our basement. Darek is so easy to work with- he's easy to talk to and very knowledgeable. The quality of his work is outstanding. When we discussed with him our ideas of how we wanted things to look, he would make very helpful suggestions (things we never would've thought of on our own). He was always thinking two steps ahead, which meant everything went 100% smoothly. I would recommend him to anyone and will not hesitate to call him if we ever need work done on our house again.

He prefers to be a called "Jerik". He is very accomodating. His exemplary performance of his job is right on the money .... Hire him and you won't get disappointed ... Very reasonable to negotiate with his pricing ... I'm strained with dollars and he understands and would love to accomodate decent request ...

Darek did a fantastic job remodeling our basement. His work was excellent and he shared great ideas on how to make the project run smoothly and be more cost effective. He kept the job site very clean and came back promptly to fix a few minor details after the job was completed. We have recommended him to others and are considering him for work in our new house.

Review by in Palatine, IL
We hired Darek to remodel our basement and to create and install a brand new bathroom in the basement. Darek is an exceptional worker and quite possibly the best contractor we have ever hired. I would describe Darek as professional, honest, hardworking, reliable, and trustworthy. Darek's work ethic, work product, and end result are exceptional. During the entire process, Darek ensured our needs and wishes were being tended to for the basement and that everything was being completed as requested. He was able to organize projects and proceed in an autonomous fashion to make sure the stress on the homeowner was minimal. Darek also provided suggestions on layout during the process, but stressed that he was willing to do what we wanted. His design and suggestions were much appreciated during the process and served as a better layout for the basement. Darek was fair and up-front with his pricing; we had no setbacks or unexpected issues or costs with the projects. We were so pleased with his work, we ended up expanding the scope of our requests. He works in an efficient and effective manner. I would highly recommend Darek for any basement or home remodeling job. Our family could not have been more pleased with the outcome. Thank you!

  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.

    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
