Hi Tom.

 

I was just telling my husband that your team works like a well-oiled machine. They were prompt and were in and out of here in no time.

Great communication on the part of all the guys and they made quick work of the drywall repair and the baseboard and the final painting.

It looks great!  

Thank you again. I won't hesitate to recommend you!

Description Of Work: Replaced Popcorn Ceiling, Took down old paneling and removed brick and mirrors from dining room
Member Comments: Hi Tom:

We could not be more pleased with the total service we received from TAK Drywall.  Tom Rothengass, the owner came out very promptly for the initial estimate.  He was very thorough and professional.  We discussed what was to be done and how we were hoping to save the trim in each of the rooms being worked on.  The very next day we received via email a detailed quote for the work to be performed.  His quote was in the range we were looking for and so we agreed to have TAK do the work.  I cannot tell you how pleased we were that we went with drywall specialists rather than a handyman at this point.  The first day Johnny and Larry came and completely covered our hard wood floors and then removed the paneling.  Next they worked on the removal of the brick wall which also had mirrors grouted to them.  The next day they came back and put up the new drywall.  They said they would arrive early and were there as expected.  The following days, Jeff and TJ came and taped and mudded the new drywall.  they came back each day (again on time) and sanded and reapplied the finish.  Throughout all this, they kept the dust down as much as humanly possible by vacuuming as they went along.  After that Johnny came back and reinstalled the trim and well as vacuumed again.  My husband and I felt that these were professionals who cared about their work and our home as though it was theirs.  today, when our painter and his crew arrived, they also commented  on the quality of the work that TAK did.  I think it speaks volumes when one professional praises another.

Description Of Work: Install new drywall in basement, reinstall trim
Member Comments: Hi Tom:

I just want you to know how very satisfied I was with the wall patching in my basement and the gentlemen who did it. The work is so excellent, one would never know there was a problem. It's all painted and looks perfect. In addition, Larry and Jeff need to be commended. They were both very personable, professional, prompt, neat and excellent at what they do.

I've kept your business card and I will definitely use you again if necessary (hopefully no more leaks tho!!) and I will refer your business to others whenever I get the opportunity.

Thank you, I wish you all continued success.

Tom, apologies for the lag as we were out of town this weekend.  The ceiling/floor board look great - you do have a mastery of plaster.  The paint job went according to plan, as well.  We are quite pleased with the outcome...appreciate your workmanship and professionalism.

drywall for complete master bath remodel. - reconfiguration of space, etc... major project.
multiple ceiling repair(s).
misc. wall repair

Member Comments: They are probably not the cheapest but you tend to get what you pay for and if you use this company, you will not have to worry about your project being done correctly.  With that said, the project went very smoothly.  All appointments were kept, the crew was careful, clean, and respectful.  The company and employees did an outstanding job and I would highly recommend them. I have used them for other minor work and will continue to use them going forward.

TAK Drywall Specialists Inc tore out wallpaper and did drywall patching.

Member Comments: They did fine. They did a good job. I liked them. The workers were courteous. Everything is holding up good. It was a bit too pricey.

Description Of Work: Our fridge leaked into our basement and ruined the drywall - drywall repaired, great job.

Member Comments: Called back and the job was finished right away, everything went great, we would not call anyone else for drywall repair.

David S. | SUGAR GROVE, IL 60554
Description Of Work:
Hang and finish drywall in basement, approximately 250 linear feet.  Included delivery of material, movement to basement, hang drywall, finish and cleanup.

Member Comments: Tom visited the site prior to quoting.  He spent a fair amount of time assessing the project and discussing the details.  The key motivator in selecting TAK was Tom's understanding of his trade and willingness to make helpful suggestions throughout the process.  For example, he showed how he could use wider wall board to give me several extra inches of ceiling height.  His advice was not limited to just the drywall but to many other aspects of my project such as how to cut away around the stairs, details of ceiling installation, etc etc.  While his mainstay is drywall and ceilings, he's well versed in other aspects of construction.  I'm glad I had someone who was able/willing to think outside the box instead of simply implementing my plan.  (I did my research but I'm not experienced in construction.)

As to the actual job, Tom and his crew did a great job.  They apply 3 coats of mud (many drywallers just do 2 coats) and the finish is near perfect.  The area under the steps was a bit tricky and they took the time to make it look great.  The area around the furnace/AC was very tight, yet they got the wall board in and affixed.  I appreciate how tough this was to do now that I'm painting it.  Tom quoted 6 days but was finished in 5 days.  And, he did this without cutting corners or compromising on the quality.  The other quotes I got were for 2-3 weeks.

Tom's price was about 5% higher than the lowest quote I got but was much lower than the highest bid.  When I do another drywall project, I'm not sure I'll even mess with quotes.  I'll just call Tom.  I know I'll get a fair price and top quality and service.

TODD T. | AURORA, IL 60502
Description Of Work:
Repaired drywall seam where water had leaked and another company had attempted a fix.

Member Comments: Tom and his assistant did an excellent job.  From the estimate to the work to cleaning up the service was top notch.

Ron J. | AURORA, IL 60506
Description Of Work:
Dry-walled a 25x20 two car garage. Installed four walls and ceiling with 5/8" drywall and insulated walls. Put one coat of mud over seams. Upgraded from R13 to R15 in the walls.

Member Comments: Excellent quotation, scheduling and installation processes. Tom met every commitment that he committed to. TAK's tradesmen are professional and efficient. They started the job at 7:30 (was on time) and completed by about 2PM. The job was a fair price and quality work. Quite frankly, no bad experience in the entire process.

MARLENE P. | Arlington Heights, IL 60004
Description Of Work:
I gutted a 14 x 22 family room including the ceiling down to the wall studs. Had new drywall put in, taped and sanded. Ready for priming.

Member Comments: Tom called promptly after I submitted my request. He was able to quote the job over the phone without even seeing the room. I signed a contract and had new drywall up within a week. Tom and his crew did a wonderful job as there were some challenging areas around the fireplace and built in TV. Another big plus was that I didn't lose my internet service, as it is all wired through that room. Tom even mopped the floor on the last day to keep the dust down. Very professional company, worked consistentally (not off a day here or there), kept to their price. Would highly recommend them!

HARVEY W. | SAINT CHARLES, IL 60174
Description Of Work:
They delivered and installed drywall to a second story bonus room. The delivery was on time and they used the second floor window to bring in the drywall materials. This greatly minimized dirt and mess in our home. The crew showed up as promised to install, tape and mud the dry wall. They did a great job as well. The second, final coats of mud and sanding was done by the owner. They vacuumed and cleaned up extremely well.

Member Comments: We were thoroughly pleased with the finished product. The price was as quoted with no hidden fees. They were very fair and a great value for our dollar.

Scott W. | Naperville, IL 60540

Joe R. | LEMONT, IL 60439
Description Of Work:
Tom hung, taped and sanded drywall in a kitchen, powder room, foyer closet and living room.

Member Comments: Tom called me back the next morning after I called, he came out within a day to look at the job, he had the estimate back the same evening and asked important questions so we both were clear on his work to be done. Tom and his guys showed up when they said they would, were very professional in the way they worked and did a good job cleaning up before they left. I look forward to doing business with T.A.K. Drywall again!!

Donna A. | ELGIN, IL 60123
Description Of Work:
T.A.K. Drywall did two chores for us. One was to completely drywall a small room which had nothing but studs. The other task was to replace a door-sized section of drywall that had been damaged beyond repair.

Member Comments: Tom arrived on time to look over the scope of the work and described options. Within three days he faxed us his bid. He and his men arrived on time and did exactly what they said they would do. Their punctuality amazed me. The work was finished exactly to spec. They kept the dust to a minimum.

BECKY M. | AURORA, IL 60504
Description Of Work:
This company came in and built a drywall soffit around exposed ducts around the entire interior perimeter of my townhome.

Member Comments: I was extremely happy with the way that this company performed. Tom (the owner) came out of his way to look at my place right away and I had a quote in my hands within 24 hours. Once the job was approved they were able to begin two days later. The crew was extremely nice and they were great people to have around and were always on time. There were two crews that came in, one that framed and the other that completed all the sanding and finish coats. They really worked hard on keeping my house clean by using a dustless sander for all but the finish coats. I would highly recommend using this company. They are a truly a top notch company that is truly service oriented!

TOM M. | GLEN ELLYN, IL 60137
Description Of Work:
Drywall over the plaster walls and ceiling in 85 year old house. Project included living room, entryway, office, two bedrooms, and two hallways.

Member Comments: I spoke with and received quotes from several vendors about this work, but felt most comfortable with Tom, since drywall is his specialty. The work they performed was of very high quality, and they did it quickly, too. His staff was very friendly and trustworthy. His bid was about 10% more than the cheapest bid I received, but it was worth the additional cost knowing I'd get great work. I would definitely use him again.
