Danny and Devin Project, Elmhurst, IL. March, 2014
The project consisted of a complete kitchen redo, along with the installation of hardwood floors in the kitchen, and rec room. Some highlights were the installation of additional electrical circuitry, usage of aged barn wood inside a nook and crown molding above the cabinets.
When we bought our house in the Chicago western suburbs, the kitchen was an outdated eyesore – chipped wooden cabinets, uneven laminate floors and archaic appliances. There was only one solution; a massive overhaul and new floor plan. With such a daunting task ahead, where were we to turn?
The MG Crows were recommended to us by a family friend. They helped us from start to finish by assembling blueprints, coordinating electrical wiring and installing unique finishing touches. In just a few short weeks, our outdated, dark, claustrophobic space was transformed into a sleek, luxurious, dream kitchen! The MG Crows installed a unique accent piece on the wall using refurbished barn-wood. That highlight is now my favorite part of the house!
Bob and Maureen Project, Woodridge, IL. April, 2015
This project consisted of a complete remodeling of two bathrooms. It included some plumbing adjustments, running conduit for new electrical circuitry, floor leveling adjustments and the usual tile work, electrical, plumbing, carpentry and painting.
The bathrooms in our 1960’s ranch were in really bad shape. Old tile, worn grout were just minor issues. We even had a lavender bathtub! As a consummate do-it-yourselfer I was not looking forward to updating the baths. The issues of plumbing, electrical, ventilation, tile work were just too daunting. Instead I hired MG Crows to do the job.
MG Crows did an excellent job with our bathroom remodels. They worked closely with us in design and execution of the project. Their suggestions regarding lighting and extra features were spot on. Little things like the height of shower heads, and placement of niches were handled expertly.
As with any work on an older home, they were faced with unexpected challenges: inconvenient attic access, substandard wiring, improper venting, uneven floors, and even a ceiling that was not nailed up! The problems were not ignored. MG Crows were able to identify problems, propose solution options, and make the necessary repairs with minimal impact on the schedule and budget.
The work was professionally done in a timely manner and within budget. I will hire MG Crows for future remodeling projects.
