Thank you for all your hard work. The house looks great with the new deck, new lawn, and the great edging and mulch around the house. You did a fantastic job and I can not thank you enough. I will absolutely recommend you to all of my friends and family.

Dedication, loyalty, honor is something I would typically associate with the Armed Forces, but not since I’ve been associated with Illinois Exterior. I’ve recently had constructed some retaining walls and brick pavers alongside my driveway at my main residence. I had more retaining walls, 9 to be exact, and a composite deck built at our lake house. Everything was done in a professional and timely matter. My rental property is next. Thanks Illinois Exterior you’re the best.

Excellent work! On time. Reasonably priced. Quality craftsmanship. Professional. This company takes pride in their work. Go ahead and get a second quote for the project you need done. It is the smart thing to do, but no one is going to beat the product Illinois Exterior will deliver.

Alida P.

I want to thank you so much for the excellent work you have done for me. The porch and new awnings are awesome and I have received numerous compliments from all my neighbors. I also am very pleased with all the other things you did for me on my list of “things to accomplish” like the dryer vent, trim in the bathroom, sealing the leak by the garage door and all the other things that I just could not do. Your professional attitude and work ethic is a “breath of fresh air in this day and age”. I would recommend you to all my friends and family and believe me I am starting a new “things to do list” which will include the new kitchen flooring. I look forward to working with you again very soon.
