Review by in Long Grove, IL
We hired the Paver Doctor to repair, clean, and seal our brick paver patio. We were extremely dissatisfied with the job they did and their customer service. I was initially skeptical that the patio could be re-leveled to ensure proper drainage, but they were adamant that it would not be a problem. However, all they ended up doing was raising the problem area (approximately 4 ft x 6ft) and shifting the area where we were getting standing water over about 5 feet, which was exactly what I questioned them on initially. When I had Andy (the company owner) come back out to see the new problem, he proposed raising the new area for an additional fee and some other landscaping to aid in water drainage. Though we were frustrated that the job wasn’t done right the first time, we felt we should go forward since we had already paid more than $2,000 for the first repair and seal job and now still had a water problem. Andy gave us a verbal estimate for an additional $1500 and said he’d send a paper copy. After 10 days we hadn’t received the estimate and called the company. The office manager said she was sure he would send it “any day.” After another week we called again and left a message asking for the estimate, and never got a call back. We tried two more times to call, both unreturned. All said and done, we spent over $2,000 and have just as much water on the patio as when we started. Additionally, they screwed up the sealer application and left a film (effervescence) over about 1/3rd of the patio. We strongly advise against using this company for any brick work; their work was substandard and they are unresponsive once problems occur.
Response by The Paver-Doctor, Inc.: This is the first we're hearing about it and we need the last name an address and copy of the contract and we will be happy to look into this issue. - 2/6/2019

I was very impressed with this company. What I LOVED about them is that they never tried to sell me anything that I didn't need. I gave Andy (the owner) every opportunity to sell me more, but he was so honest that he actually talked me out of some ideas that I had that would have been more profit for him. I mentioned a fire pit and a brick grill enclosure and he gave me the pros and cons for these without trying to talk me into spending more. I was quote a brick patio that involved a demo of an existing concrete walkway and tree removal. I requested if it were possible to take the dirt removed and place it in my yard where there was erosion due to a creek and well at take the broken up concrete walkway and use it to retain the dirt and they did this free of charge. It came out great and I was very pleased. The crew was friendly,very hard working, they showed up on time and finished the job when they said they would. I even added a step down from the patio after realizing the height of the patio that wasn't part of the original quote and they were able to do it without any issues. It has been one year since this was installed and there are no problems to report. It is solid and holding up well. I liked their work so much that I called again this Spring to quote a new asphalt driveway. The quote was very reasonably priced compared to the other quotes I received and I even added a brick walkway around the garage as well. In the other two quotes I received from other companies, they were trying to sell me a drainage system that was going to be over a $1000. Andy provided me with a drain option that was way more economical for my budget. Moreover, I gave Andy an opportunity to sell me more showing him a wood timber retaining wall that I disliked in my backyard and asked him to quote me how much it would be if I did it all brick to match the patio. Instead of seeing an opportunity to sell me more, he told me that it was still in good shape because of the location and it would probably last at least ten more years in its current condition. He provided me with an option of just putting some bushes in front of them if I do not like the look of them, which is something I never considered. They will be coming by to do the walkway soon, but will be waiting until mid May to do the driveway because of the weather and optimal temperature needed for a quality job. Some of these other companies said they could do it now probably knowing that it would not be the best job because of the weather. Honesty is what I really appreciate about this company. If only I can find a mechanic, plumber, electrician and carpenter with the same integrity. I HIGHLY recommend this company for your brick work. I will follow up with the driveway once its install. Thank you.

Review by in Mundelein, IL
They were very efficient in communication. I called them and left a message. They came out and then mailed a written proposal and a long list of references. All I had to do was sign the proposal and mail it back. I called with some questions that they quickly answered. It took awhile for me to decide - they don't call to follow up or hassle which is nice. The work was scheduled within 2 or 3 weeks of acceptance. They ended up doing more repair of my brick walkway than what they originally anticipated. They did what they had to do to make it right, and the price stayed the same.

Review by in Northbrook, IL
They were awarded the contract for a new driveway at my home. I was satisfied with the work completed so I signed a contract with them to do some work on a parking lot at a commercial facility. They came out and started and never showed up again. After several unreturned phone calls I gave up on trying to get a hold of them. About a month ago my driveway that was completed by them started to sink causing a large crack down the center. I was finally able to get a hold of them to come out and look at it. They claimed it wasn't covered under warranty because of our climate but were willing to patch it. A patch job on a 6 month old driveway!!!
