We truly cannot say enough positive things about Rosseland Remodeling! We always heard horror stories from people about contractors and remodeling jobs, but our kitchen remodel was totally painless! Chris is in constant contact and never strays from his detailed schedule. We are thrilled with our new kitchen!!!

Thank you to Chris and his team. My new bathroom is beautiful. Chris and his team are all very professional and treated my remodel as it was their home. The trust and confidence between Chis and his team is displayed daily. This is my second remodel with Chris and would not consider going elsewhere. Chris listens and responds to every detail, is very hands on from start to finish and goes above and beyond. He ensures that work is done timely and according to schedule. Thank you again!!

Chris is not your typical contractor. He truly cares about you and your project. We did a complete redo of our bathroom. Everyone who worked on the project was professional, courteous, on time, and always kept things clean. There is no issue Chris can’t solve, his knowledge is incredible. He treats you like family. This was our second project with him, he did a complete renovation of our kitchen four years ago. We were so pleased then, we recommended him to our neighbor and my parents, who both hired him for their kitchens. Their experiences were in line with ours, no one ever has anything negative to say. You will not be disappointed having Chris do your project.

The thought of going through a major renovation can be very intimidating and overwhelming. It’s also very scary trying to find a contractor you can trust, who does quality work, is dependable, completes the job in the time frame which was given and finishes the job at the price that was quoted. Chris at Rosseland Construction gets an A+ in all categories.

We recently had some major renovations done to our kitchen, dining room and living room. The kitchen was a total gut job, the wall between the kitchen and dining room was removed, the front hall closet was demolished and rebuilt in another location and the sunken living room was raised so that the kitchen/dining rm/living rm are now all the same level.

The people who work for Rosseland did an amazing job (ie: electrician, painter, plumber, carpenter, flooring people, appliance installers). They showed up on time every day and cleaned up before they left and were all extremely friendly and very trustworthy. Chris Rosseland was there practically every morning making sure the workers knew what was expected of them every day. If changes need to be made, he was very easy going about it and gave valuable input.

Chris originally anticipated that it would take approximately 9 weeks to finish but they were done in 8! He provides a detailed timeline of when everything will get done.

We are all ecstatic about the final result and would definitely use Rosseland Construction again for any future renovations.

Chris did an amazing job on our kitchen renovation! Everything was so organized, he communicated so well, and our project was even ahead of schedule! Rosseland Remodeling is the best!

We just finished our second project with Chris and Rosseland Remodeling. We did our kitchen last year and when it was time to do our first floor bathroom, we didn’t even look at any other contractors. Every step of the way is a positive experience with Chris. He answers texts and email immediately. He wants everything to be perfect and everyone on his team shares the same attention to detail and professionalism. We highly recommend Rosseland Remodeling for any home project you are doing!

Rosseland Construction did an awesome job on our kitchen renovation. Chris treated our kitchen as if it were his own. Everything went as smooth as could be. The people working for Chris were on time in the morning and made sure everything was picked up before they left. The timeline was 6 weeks and was completed in 4 weeks. Chris will definitely be doing our next renovation next year. Thank you Chris our kitchen looks amazing!

Nancy Owens

Chris and his guys do exceptional work. Not only did they get our kitchen job done in-time and on budget, but Chris personally followed up with us several months after the completion of the work to ask if we had any issues. He stood by his work and made the entire experience less stressful for us. We had a toddler and a newborn during the remodeling and the idea of a kitchen remodeling project was daunting at first. Throughout the entire process, Chris repeatedly went out of his way to show us he personally was invested in the success of the project. We have particular taste and high standards, but Chris remained professional and motivated to give us all we expected. You just don’t find that sort of business every day. We couldn’t be happier with the way everything turned out. The group of professionals he involved in our project really helped us discover new ideas that made our kitchen so much more functional. They helped guide our decisions to make our kitchen into the crown jewel of our home and into something with universal appeal. We couldn’t be happier with the way Rosseland Remodeling does business! If you are looking for the right guy, look no more!

We love our kitchen! Chris went above and beyond to make sure everything went well with the project. He took care of us like he was doing his own kitchen. It couldn’t have gone any smoother. His team were wonderful as well. We recommend Chris to anyone who is ready to do their own remodel. See you in the Spring for our master bathroom!

Nancy and Glen

Chris did a great job helping us remodel our basement. He guided us through the planning, giving suggestions when we weren’t sure what would be best. He worked extremely well with the inspectors too. The professionals he had do the work were the best plus they cleaned up after each day of work. We highly recommend Rosseland!

Our experience with Chris and Rosseland Remodeling could not have been better! Our project went smoothly and we love our new kitchen. Chris is so trustworthy and he makes sure everything is done right. He was at our house each day and always let us know what was going on. Our kitchen remodeling was done ahead of schedule and it turned out even better than we could have imagined! Chris and everyone in his crew is very professional. We would highly recommend Chris and Rosseland Remodeling for any project in your home.

Caroline D.

Thank you very much for an excellent remodel that we will enjoy for years to come! Professional & organized, any time I had a question or concern I had an immediate reply. They were always available to help. We were back in the house before the scheduled end date! I would absolutely recommend Rosseland Remodeling to anyone considering a remodel. The staff was excellent and very professional.

Chris has worked on various projects at our house for almost 10 years: room addition, finishing a basement, redoing 2 baths and our kitchen. Chris manages the schedule such that there is something happening most days and the work never stalls. Often the projects are finished sooner than expected. The team Chris works with is great – all are courteous and professional. We have had a couple of surprises behind the walls and Chris has always addressed them and helped us fix them with the safest and best solution. Thanks Chris and Team!

Kathy B.

We can’t say enough about how happy and impressed we are with my kitchen! Chris goes above and beyond to make sure everything is done properly and according to schedule. Our experience with Chris, his crew could not have been better! Our project went smoothly and we love our new kitchen. The work performed was beyond exceptional. His communication and professionalism is a like a breath of fresh air! We would HIGHLY recommend Chris to anyone looking to remodel their kitchen.

This is the second project we have had done by Chris and Rosseland Remodeling. I’ve known Chris for a number of years and have always been impressed by his work attitude and the quality of his and his subcontractors work. He manages to set a schedule and keep the work flowing per the schedule. I can recommend him without hesitation. If you’re looking for a contractor who does his work professionally and on time, look no further.

Harry G

Chris and his team are great! Easy to work with, clean, honest & friendly. Thank you Rosseland Construction Team!

Doug Dvorak

Our master bedroom and master bath turned out exceptionally beautiful, exceeding our expectations. We couldn’t be happier with the final results. We absolutely love our newly renovated bedroom with new hardwood floors, new Pella windows (matching the windows on the first floor), oak interior doors, recessed lighting installed, new bathroom vanity area including new lighting, and a bathroom/shower renovation. Since Chris’ team is very professional, courteous, reliable, trustworthy, and expert craftsmen; it was a no brainer to have our master bedroom and bathroom remodeled again with Chris and his team. We keep on going back to Chris because he listens to our requests, concerns, needs, and always responds quickly to us. Bottom line; Chris and his team are very easy to work with and we are looking forward to working with Chris and his team again for the final completion of our second floor remodel. Second time Rosseland Remodeling has provided us quality work, on-time.

Mark Ross

We have used Rosseland Remodeling for other projects in our home, so when it was time to remodel our kitchen in our Arlington Heights home we knew we were in good hands. Chris Rosseland gave us a fair and honest quote for a full remodel, including new counter tops, back splash, cabinets, and floors. We also reworked a small set of stairs and removed a wall.
A full kitchen remodeling project can be stressful and tedious, but Chris and his crews were pleasant, professional, and efficient from start to finish. Chris gave us a detailed timeline before the project so we could avoid any unnecessary inconveniences. Every deadline was met, every little issue was resolved immediately, and there were no hidden charges snuck in along the way. We couldn’t be happier with the end result. Our kitchen is simply gorgeous and we wouldn’t change a thing.
Chris is honest, diligent, and an all-around great guy. We’re happy to know him. We will be sure to use Rosseland Remodeling for any other projects in our home, and we highly recommend him to our friends and family. He is the best! Thanks Chris!

I cannot say enough about how happy and impressed I am with my kitchen! Chris goes above and beyond to make sure everything is done properly and according to schedule. His honesty, communication and professionalism is a breath of fresh air. The work performed was exceptional. Every subcontractor/craftsman to walk through my door was professional and courteous.

Chris and his team come highly recommended in my book. They remodeled my kitchen (new floor, cabinets, counter and lighting) and installed new flooring in the dining room and half bath. The removal of all the old materials was done with minimum disruption and they left the work site each night very clean. I left for three days and came home to find a clean and orderly home. Chris went the extra mile to complete things that were not discussed in the original proposal to make it right. This was my first major remodel which can be very intimidating but Chris was always available to help with any decisions and informative as to time frames, etc. His support in selection of cabinets, etc. was extremely helpful.
I would definitely use Rosseland Remodeling again!!!

Although we longed and planned for our kitchen remodel for years we waited until very recently to actually “take the plunge”. Our hesitation was largely based in our anxiety over finding the right contractor and being comfortable with the myriad of decisions that we would need to make along the way. Well we needn’t have waited … Chris Rosseland and Rosseland Remodeling was right here in our town all along! While perusing the Angie’s List site one evening I found some reviews from clients who had remodeling projects completed by Rosseland Remodeling and they were all very positive. A little more research found similar reviews on other sites so we made the call to set a time to meet with Chris and discuss what we wanted.

From the very start we loved Chris! He was thorough, patient and very professional as we discussed our project; which ended up being a rather large one that included knocking out two walls and essentially remodeling one entire floor of our house. He provided us with an additional list of references and within twenty four hours he had a proposal completed for our consideration. We contacted several of the references and they were all very pleased with their experiences so we were off and running within the week.

From the start we were thrilled with the project and actually enjoyed the experience; despite the inconvenience of living in a “construction zone”! Chris’s crew was great; we enjoyed meeting and working with all of them! It was obvious from the start that Chris has taken a great deal of time and care cultivating great working relationships with some wonderful professionals. They were on time every day, thorough in their work, patient with our questions and concerns, and always anxious to be sure we were pleased with the work. We tried to stay out of their way but the fact that we are both retired meant that we were home each and every day … something they may not have been used to but everyone was patient and willing to take a minute to explain things to us or occasionally simply have a chat. At every step Chris was with us; even accompanying us to meet with the designer and select our cabinets! He checked in each and every day to monitor progress and make sure that we were comfortable with what was happening and inform us as to what to expect at every step of the way.

We were provided with a schedule at the start of the project and it was adhered to and adjusted as needed throughout the project. We always felt that the success of our kitchen renovation was every bit as important to him as it was to us. The project was completed not only on time; but about a week ahead of schedule! We were thrilled! It was a great experience; every question was answered, every concern was addressed and the new kitchen was everything we had hoped for and more. I am afraid that Chris and his team has spoiled us and it would be nearly impossible to imagine any future projects without them!

My wife and I hired Rosseland Remodeling (Chris) to finish our basement. From the initial contact to the completion of the project, we were very pleased with Chris’ responsiveness and professionalism. He always promptly addressed any of our questions or concerns and he kept us informed on the schedule regularly. Our basement remodeling project required an aggressive completion schedule due to the approaching due date of our second child. Chris was able to start and finish within our required timeline; a commitment other contractors were unable to make. As with any construction project, there were a few minor quality concerns along the way, but Chris always promptly made sure they were corrected to our satisfaction.

We will definitely consider Chris for any future work at our home and would recommend him to others.

Chris did a great job of keeping the project on pace and communicating status of progress, upcoming schedules, etc. Most days there would be multiple trades working in parallel and we never had a single day that we did not know exactly what was going to happen or when. The quality of work from all of the crews was fantastic, and as a bonus, they were all very nice people to have in my house…including answering countless questions from kids, etc. Any issue that came up, as they will, was quickly answered or handled to our satisfaction. One of the things we liked best about the experience was we could tell how proud Chris was of his work, and he showed genuine excitement about the vision for the project and you can tell how proud he was how it came out, which, in my opinion, is the mark of a true professional.
It was a true pleasure to work with Chris and his crew and we can’t recommend them highly enough.

Complete gut remodel of kitchen/first floor, including: removing wall between existing kitchen and living room, reconfiguring existing walls, moving entire kitchen into larger space, new cabinets, countertops, electric, plumbing, replaced window, refinished and added wood flooring to entire first and most of second floor, replacement of stairway railings, minor bathroom remodel, repainting of most of the house, and other jobs as needed to complete the kitchen remodeling project.

Fantastic work! Chis has a very high attention to detail. He’s super friendly, organized and is all about his clients. One of the best contractors I know of.

Chris remodeled our basement several years ago and when it came time to get some more work done, we knew exactly who to call, Rosseland! Chris and his team did quality work then and nothing changed this time.

Bathroom – Chris and his team replaced the bathtub, toilet, facets, light fixtures, window and all tile in our “kid’s” bathroom. Originally, to save a little money, we were going to keep our existing bathtub, but at some point during the process the tub was slightly damaged. With no questions asked and without us even asking, a new tub was delivered and installed in a day!

Kitchen – Chris gutted the kitchen, and installed new cabinets, an island, under cabinet lighting, new flooring, granite counter tops, a new sink, garbage disposal, ceiling pendants and can lights. He creatively hid some PVC by our ceiling so we could get rid of the soffits and have ceiling high cabinets. They even installed/re-installed the above range microwave we purchased from a big box store when the store’s installation guys screwed it up the first time!

All of the work Chris has ever done for us has been done professionally, skillfully and without problem. His proposals are detailed, accurate and there are never any surprises. He tells you what he is going to do and he does it. He and the guys genuinely take pride in their work and you never have to worry about anyone cutting corners or not doing the job less than 100%. Demolition is performed quickly, the work area is always kept spotless, and they keep any disruptions to your life at a minimum. Chris is easy to work with, always responds quickly and courteously to our questions, and you can trust that he is going to get the job done right.

We highly recommend Rosseland to everyone looking for a contractor and we’ll be calling him again when our next job comes around!

He provides step by step instructions and timelines for selecting cabinets, tile, countertops, electric fixtures, etc. It was an incredibly easy group to work with. We came in on time and under budget. Chris and his team completely remodeled our kitchen, dining room and family room. We now have an open floor plan with flow and style. The work performed included removing walls, installing new cabinets, countertops, floors, appliances and lighting.

Everything turned out beautiful. I couldn’t believe it was the same basement. Chris and the people he works with were so great. They thought of every last detail. It really took the worry out of such a big job.
They are remodeling my kitchen now and doing a fantastic job. Couldn’t be happier!

Remodeled my basement. Brought it down to the studs, drywalled, layed floor, installed lighting, painted did plumbing.

We have had the pleasure to work with Chris Rosseland in the past and we were very happy with his work. When we relocated back to the Chicago area a few months ago and purchased an existing townhouse, we immediately knew who we were going to call to help us make this house into our home. Initially we made a list of all the projects we wanted to accomplish and Chris worked with us and our budget restrictions to achieve as much work as we could realistically afford right now.

Chris performed an entire master bathroom remodeling, but was able to allow us to utilize the existing vanity, tub, and toilet. When removing the existing shower tile, Chris discovered the builder had not used cement board and instead used regular drywall. We appreciate that Chris partners with us when doing work on our home as we like to be involved with the construction process and we love that Chris watches out for us to make sure our home is as energy efficient and well built as he can. Chris uses fabulous subcontractors which were all high quality, fun and innovative to work with. There is a lot of creative thinking with Chris and his staff; which makes your space very individualized to meet all your needs and wants. There were so many choices to make, but all the people that Chris employs to work with you are the best.

We also hired Chris to repaint the entire house, re carpet the entire house (including stairway runners and carpet over tile in the lower level), repair wood flooring stains, replace toilets, sinks, and vanity tops in the powder rooms and numerous lighting fixtures. In the lower level den there was an existing wall closet that we wanted to make a computer niche into. Chris had great architectural ideas for the space and now it appears as though it has been here all the time. Chris and his staff were fabulous listeners of the overall design of the house we were trying to achieve, had numerous choices of options to choose from, and were affordable to work within our budget. There were so many people coming and going from our house, it was great to know that Chris was navigating this project from beginning to end and that we could trust him with our home.

We purchased a house in the fall, but it’s Chris and his staff that made the house our home. It is so great to come home and know that the people that created it the way you wanted it, cared enough to do a beautiful job and do it the right way. We have never had such a beautiful master bathroom or home. The quality of Chris’ work is unbeatable and he makes your home dreams come true; he did for us.

After purchasing an existing town home, we wanted to renovate some of the rooms to make the house our home. Included in this was a master bath complete remodeling, new carpet, hardwood floor repairs, wainscoting, building a computer niche, and whole house painting.

After getting quotes for having our kitchen remodeled by 2 large national companies and briefly considering doing our own contracting, we decided to investigate some smaller locally-based contractors. Based on his BBB and Angie’s List grades and his references, we contacted Chris Rosseland and set up an initial meeting. Chris’s professionalism and sincerity were immediately apparent, as was his ability to really listen to what we were saying. Right away we could tell that he “got “us and our vision for our kitchen. We really wanted to work with him, and once we received his proposal, we knew we needn’t look any further for our contractor. We felt like we were safe, that we had someone we could trust, and this feeling was totally confirmed during the course of the remodel.

Chris immediately put us in contact with the people he uses for all the components of a kitchen. Although we had thought that we would just replace the existing cabinets in their original configuration, Nancy, the cabinet designer, came out to the house with Chris and proposed a simple switch in the layout that totally transformed the space and which we would have never imagined. Although we had gone out independently looking at granite, Chris arranged to have his fabricator look at granite with us in order to find the perfect exotic granite that would still fit our budget. Every step of the way, Chris made sure that we were aware of the costs and that we were getting the products that we wanted to make our dream kitchen a reality and yet not overspend our budget. And every subcontractor we dealt with had nothing but praise for Chris, further reassuring us that we had made the right decision in hiring Rosseland Remodeling.

Once kitchen remodeling got underway, everything proceeded according to schedule. Everyone who worked in our house was friendly, polite, professional, and meticulous about their work. The work-site was cleaned up before the workers left every day. Having done most of the work on our houses ourselves, we were very careful observers with very high standards. It took a few days before we realized that we didn’t have to be ever-vigilant—Chris and his crew (especially the masterful go-to guy Carlos) found and handled the smallest of details, even ones we might never have noticed. There were ever any bad surprises—only several very pleasant ones! The atmosphere was one of calm and competency. Our happiness and satisfaction was the chief concern, and our completed kitchen has transformed our home—we are very happy and completely satisfied!

Integrity is a virtue that is sometimes sadly lacking in many people and businesses today. But Chris Rosseland exemplifies that trait. We would most heartily recommend Rosseland Remodeling to our family and friends or to anyone who wants a job done very, very right.

This was a big project. It involved taking down walls, closing off a door, installing a new sliding glass door, three new baths, a new kitchen, new wood floors, complete remodel of lower level and new interior paint in all rooms. Chris and his people did a great job.

Chris is easy to work with, and very organized. He listens to all of your ideas and provides excellent suggestions. We had a structural issue that had to dealt with. Not a problem for Chris and his crew. Everyone that he brought in to work on this project were very professional, very honest people that took pride in their work. The work that they did was excellent. Everyone that has visited us since the completion has requested the name and phone number of the contractor for future reference. He is an extremely hard worker and very knowledgeable. Overall this was a great experience. The project was completed on budget and ahead of schedule. I would recommend Rosseland Remodeling to anyone needing a remodeling project.

After hearing horror stories from friends and neighbors on various projects that they had done, we were amazed at how smoothly everything went. Chris and his guys were very professional. Chris was at our house every single day. He was on budget and on time. We could not recommend the company any higher. The before and after pictures of our kitchen are amazing. You can’t go wrong with these guys!

We had an architect do up blueprints for a kitchen renovation/addition and to add a bedroom/bathroom/laundry room/wet bar/kitchen to our basement. We had 4 contractors bid on the project and Rosseland was by far the most professional and the one we felt the most comfortable working with. They were not the lowest price, but they were much more thorough than the other three. They expanded our kitchen, added the above to our basement, and then rebuilt our back deck.

Chris, the owner, was at our house just about everyday that someone was there working. He would come check in, see if we had any questions, make sure stuff was running smoothly. Chris always gave us a timeline of how things would run, and was in constant communication with us.
He returned calls/emails promptly, and always addressed any issues with us personally & professionally. He listened to what we wanted, & helped guide us where to go to shop for things, or get ideas, etc. He also met with us with the cabinet lady (Nancy at CR Cabinetry-who was AMAZING at helping us plan our cabinets, get me what I wanted out of my kitchen functionally and aesthetically), which was very helpful. All of his sub-contractors (plumbers, electrical, flooring, tile, cabinet/railing installer) were great to work with. We had one problem with our new flooring, but Chris took care of it right away, and saw to it that the work was up to par and to our liking. He has checked back with us since the completion, and overall was very personable and easy to work with. We couldn’t be happier with our new kitchen/great room, thanks to Rosseland Remodeling! Remodeled kitchen– removed walls to make open concept kitchen/living room, gutted old kitchen, new hardwood floors, all new cabinets, countertops, moved location of stove & sink. Painted living room/hallway/kitchen, new trim. New railings on staircase. All new electrical work. Tiled backsplash.

We spoke with three contractors regarding our basement finishing project. All three had good reputations for the job we wanted done. However, Chris Rosseland made such a positive impression with his responsiveness to our ideas and questions. His very detailed proposal was provided within a week. We especially appreciated the use of an architect and the thoroughness of the planning.

Chris was so easy to work with…always pleasant and patient with concerns. Any question was addressed in a timely manner. His employees were punctual, tidy and careful, and most important, the carpenters, plumbers, electricians, painters, etc. did great jobs!  The finished basement is beautiful…we love it!

We would recommend Rosseland Remodeling to anyone looking for first quality work in their home.

Rosseland Remodeling finished our basement including a bathroom, bedroom and family room. The work included drywall ceilings, wainscoting, bathroom with tiled shower, carpentry change to the staircase.

The project was smooth, professional and stress free – not an easy thing to say for such a large remodeling project! From the start, we liked Chris’ ideas and demeanor. As soon as he showed up, he listened carefully to our wants and needs for the project. He immediately suggested some great ideas that we loved. After talking to many contractors, we had a good feeling that Chris was the kind of person we wanted to work with. Rosseland had great references, great reviews on Angie’s list, and a competitive price. We were sold.

Chris helped us to find an architect for a very reasonable price to put together the plans for the addition (thousands less than other architectural bids we had received). He walked us through the design process, in conjunction with the architect, and was always able to put solid estimates to ideas during some fun design sessions. Chris was able to think quickly to help us determine how minor changes to the plans might change the overall price for the project. In short, the planning process was great, and moved at a nice, quick pace.

Chris handled all of the permit process with the village, which was a relief as our village is a little ‘temperamental’. When the work started, Chris and his sub-contractors did great work. We especially liked the carpenters. They were very friendly, willing to explain anything we asked, and very courteous. We had advance notice of all work, so we were always prepared for the next crew of workers. We actually were excited each day to hear about what was going to happen, and to see the project move along.

This could have been a very messy project – mud, sawdust, drywall, nails etc. But Chris and his guys were very careful to clean the job site each day, leaving the house quiet and clean by the time we got home from work (4:30pm each day). Our neighbors even commented about how little mess there was during the project.

Any remodeling project will run into unexpected situations. When we hit ours, Chris acted with integrity and accountability. When the custom windows we ordered showed up, Chris immediately noticed that they were not of a good build quality. Before I even knew that there was anything wrong, Chris had called out a third party inspector to look them over, had begun the process of sending them back, and had ordered new, upgraded windows. The whole situation could have been stressful for me had I been involved – the vendor did not want to give a refund, the maker disputed their poor build quality. But Chris handled all of it quickly and efficiently. We quickly had the new, nicer windows in place.

Overall, I found Chris to be very responsive and communicative. One of my favorite things was that I could email him with a list of questions or issues, and he would quickly respond. Since communicating with your contractor on the phone during the work day can be challenging, this was especially helpful. All-in-all, this was a very good experience. We have undertaken several minor remodeling projects prior to this, and none have gone so smoothly. Chris Rosseland runs a tight ship, and a very professional remodeling company.

I would highly recommend Rosseland Remodeling to anyone looking for a good, honest, friendly, communicative, and fairly-priced contractor. We will definitely use Rosseland for our next project(s).

This was a very large project. We tore down two existing poorly built rooms. They rested on a slab foundation, which we tore out as well. Once the demolition was done, we had a new foundation (with basement) poured, built a new living room on the first floor, and added a second story addition above that space. It is a little hard to describe, but we went from a single floor family room area on a slab, to a two-story addition over a new basement space. The new basement space was built to extend our existing basement. In addition, we re-roofed, re-sided, and re-guttered the entire house and detached garage.

We now have THE MOST BEAUTIFUL bathroom EVER ! :) Chris Rosseland worked with us throughout the process, always communicating the schedule, answering all our questions and giving great ideas based on his extensive experience ! He worked with us in conjunction with the various suppliers we met with to select the various fixtures and cabinetry. Everyone working on the project was friendly, professional and punctual. When we added a couple extra cabinets, Chris helped us shop for tile, helping us save some money to offset the cost of the cabinets. We could not be happier with the results of our bathroom remodel !

We wanted a major remodel of our master bathroom. We had a small linen closet ripped out to expand the shower, a nasty old Jacuzzi was replaced by a sleek air-bubble tub and the shorter, one-sink vanity was removed and a longer, two-sink vanity put in its place. New travertine tile was laid throughout and a new light/fan combo and new light fixtures installed.

Chris did a great job. All work was done professionally. If there was a problem, it was immediately addressed and corrected. Chris was always available via phone or e-mail. Although the project took slightly longer than expected, much of it was our fault as we were slow to pick out things with longer lead times. Chris has a good list of supplier partners for such things as flooring, cabinetry, and bath, bar and light fixtures. We didn’t always use them, but it was nice to know we had someplace to start and somebody to talk to if we needed it. Overall, a great experience. Finished a basement including sealing cracks, framing, cabinetry, granite, plumbing for powder room and bar sink, carpeting, pergo, ceramic tile, electrical work, painting, adding/moving HVAC ducts, help with architectural design and provided architectural drawings for permit.

We contacted Chris Rosseland based on his Angie’s List reviews and ratings. He came out and met with us and listened to what we were wanting to accomplish with our kitchen remodeling project. He understood what we were hoping to accomplish with both quality and price point. Within a couple of days he provided us with his bid and allowances for each part of the project.

After we accepted Chris’s proposal, he walked us through the process of picking out each item for the kitchen and promptly answered any question we had. Once construction began, the project proceeded right on schedule and actually was completed several days ahead of the original plan. The subcontractors that Chris uses were all wonderful to have in our house and the quality of their work was outstanding. The few glitches that popped up were resolved immediately. The final cost was just as the proposal was presented. The only cost adjustments were the result of choices we made picking out our specific allowance items.

I highly recommend Rosseland Construction and will turn to Chris with any projects we have in the future.

This was the best experience I have ever had with a contractor. The house was in poor shape when we first brought it years ago. A lot of work has been done to get it were it is now. Through out this time we have work with several different contractors who have never come close to this. The owner, Chris, gave me a detailed estimate and made every attempt to keep to that price. If I chose an item that went over the allowance he informed me immediately and allowed me to decide if that additional cost was in my budget. In addition, Chris kept me frequently up to date on how thing were proceeding and responded to my concerns without any hesitation or reluctance. I appreciate Chris’s continued presence through out the entire project.

The quality of workmanship was also beyond my expectations. I kept waiting for the “shoe to drop”. How could a project ever run this smoothly? Carlos, the primary carpenter, and doer of all things great was the best. His workmanship is precise, clean and neat. I expected dirt and chaos. What I got was a clean and orderly environment though out.

The end result is an absolutely beautiful kitchen. I can’t believe I’m saying this but, honestly there is not a single complaint to give. I hope everyone who works with this contractor has the same wonderful experience.

They gutted the kitchen which included tearing down the walls. New wood floors, cabinets, granite counter top, lighting( including under cabinet), sink, faucet were installed.

Chris’ team is very professional, courteous, reliable, trustworthy, and expert craftsmen. Chris listened to our requests, concerns, needs, and always responded quickly and in a timely fashion. Bottom line; Chris and his team were very easy to work with and we are looking forward to working with Chris and his team again. Rosseland Remodeling provided us quality work, on-time completion and stayed on budget. We highly recommend Rosseland Remodeling. Thank you to Chris and his awesome team on our first floor remodel. Our kitchen turned out exceptionally beautiful, exceeding our expectations. We couldn’t be happier with the final results. We absolutely love our newly redesigned kitchen, kitchen cabinets, granite counter tops, travertine back splash, hardwood floors, windows, oak interior doors and new powder room.

First of all – I LOVE MY NEW KITCHEN!!!! I couldn’t be happier. This was the third project Rosseland Remodeling has done for me and things just got better and better with each project. Mind you, the first two were done extremely well and I was very pleased, which is why I was willing to tackle the kitchen. I hated my old kitchen from the day I moved into my home. It was small, cramped, and very inefficient. I had always thought the space could be better utilized. Over the years I had talked to a number of people about how to use the space better but was never given a good option. That all changed with Rosseland Remodeling who gave me a new, open, airy, efficient kitchen which is a pleasure to work in. Chris Rosseland, who oversaw this amazing transformation, has put together a team of highly qualified craftsmen (and women.) He is a man who really cares about his clients and is willing to go the extra mile to be sure they are satisfied. Whenever there was a problem (and there will be) his reply was always, “That’s an easy fix!”

Chris Rosseland is a man who is respected by his peers and known for quality work During the final inspection by the village, the inspector turned to me and said, “You don’t have anything to worry about. These folks do quality work!” High praise in my book.
So, if you are looking for quality work by a qualified and caring team, Rosseland Remodeling is the company for you!

Chris with the General Contractor we worked with to design and build our 1,100 sq ft addition in Hoffman Estates. Chris finished the project in 5 months. he was very helpful and cooperative through the process; helping us sort out a multitude of decisions. The contractors he used for each phase did high quality jobs, were very efficient and respectful of our personal space. Chris is very easy to work with and kept our desires and best interests in mind through-out. We had structural issues early on that Chris worked through with us very collaboratively. I highly recommend working with him. We are thrilled with our new space!

Description of work: Approximately 1,100 sq foot addition including a great room, office, and bedroom with basement underneath, extension/remodeling of kitchen and remodeling of master bedroom and bathroom.

I LOVE ROSSELAND REMODELING!!!! I could not be happier. Chris Rosseland went from a nice, professional contractor to now a loved part of our family.

I didn’t take this remodel lightly, I interviewed 7 companies before deciding on a contractor that I thought would be honest, reasonably priced, and not creepy to have in my home day in and day out. I found that in Chris Rosseland. He has a very kind demeanor to him, and that kindness does not disappears throughout the construction process or after. Chris is involved in the entire process and is on the site on a daily basis. His FIRST concern is his customers happiness.

His crews are also excellent! His crews were here working when they were suppose to, always on time, and sometimes even on the weekends. They were always polite and respectful of our family, and they did excellent work. None of the framing was prefabricated, all was constructed on site. Chris noticed my drain tiles were not draining properly and installed a new sump pump in the addition area. The attention to details was really impressive. If I wasn’t happy with something, all I had to do was tell him and he had it fixed, usually next day, no questions asked. The progress was ongoing, there was no “dead time”. Each day I’d come home and think “Wow look at all the work they got done today”. On days I was home I never felt like my space was invaded by strangers, they were very respectful. Especially since I have little ears around, there was not any cursing or disrespectful language that we heard, also there was not any trash left around or cigarette butts. The work was done on time and on budget.

I have referred Rosseland to my friends, family, and coworkers, and neighbors. Its funny because I see a home not far from mine that is having similar work done to it but by a different contractor , and I feel sorry for the people because they’re home is still being worked on today. We were done in July, and have been enjoying our new space ever since. Rosseland Remodeling is wonderful.

Addition of a 24×22 family room, a basement underneath it, replaced a one car attached garage made a two car attached garage, new siding on entire house, new roofing with new ventilation system for entire house, new driveway , patio, gas fireplace, moved stairs, brick work , new gutters, soffits, fascia, reblew insulation in entire attic, hardwood floors.

We interviewed several other contractors to do this job, and I am so glad that we hired Chris. From the beginning to the end, he and his crew were conscientious, professional and thorough. Whatever he said would be done, was finished on time and with quality workmanship. He was approachable and offered suggestions and ideas and answered my questions as they arose during the project. This was the first major remodeling project we have ever done and I was very nervous about choosing a contractor. I would hire Chris to do any future remodeling on our house as he made the process very easy on my family. The entire project was finished ahead of his time estimate and Chris guarantees his work, although I will be surprised if we have any problems.

Description of work: Chris and his crew remodeled our unfinished basement into a beautiful family room, laundry room and storage room.

Our kitchen had been last remodeled in approximately 1990 and was long overdue for a makeover. We wanted to update the design from American Country to a more contemporary style with clean lines. Overall, the project consisted of full cabinet replacement, ceiling and under-cabinet lighting, new wall-mounted appliances, new sink granite countertops, ceramic backsplash and painted walls with new crown moldings and trim.
We wanted a contractor that could perform total project management and had a team of specialists who were skilled in their trades. Ideally we were hoping for someone who could offer insightful suggestions in areas where we needed advice.
Our search began with Angie’s list and other Internet websites. We identified a few candidates and invited them in for proposal discussions.

From our first appointment with Chris Rosseland, we had a strong sense that we would enjoy working with him. He was very good at assessing our needs, desires and budget. He suggested various options for us to consider in terms of layout, ergonomics and aesthetics. Then he came back to us with a complete, professional proposal along with professional references and other useful information about his company and affiliates. His bid was not the lowest, but Chris’ professionalism gave us the expectation that he could competently deliver a good project.

Looking at his list of affiliates, we next went to visit his kitchen designer, Nancy, of CR Cabinetry in Schaumburg. We stopped in on a Saturday morning, introduced ourselves and told her about the project. She said she does a lot of work with Chris. She showed us some material samples and fielded a variety of design questions. From this conversation, we knew she would be fun to work with!

So based on these meetings, it was clear that Rosseland was the best choice. We confidently signed the agreement and moved ahead.
The actual experience was surprising in two areas: (1) on-completion and (2) work performed within budget. Based on previous experiences with other contractors and handymen, it seemed that deadlines were never kept and costs always seemed to escalate beyond expectations. It was NOT this way with Rosseland. Rather, Chris lays out a target timetable and takes it seriously. He regularly visited our home and kept us apprised of daily goals. When the final invoice arrived, there were no hidden surprises.

Communication was another strength. As the kitchen remodeling work was being performed, Chris was very proactive in keeping us informed but also reaching out about any questions or potential issues where client input was needed. He did this both through phone calls and e-mail, whichever was more appropriate. Even though we did not talk on some days, we were always in touch.
All of the builders, electricians and plumbers assigned to the job were competent and careful. The only issues I recall were the need to make adjustment to a couple of cabinet door handles and also our desire to place some additional trim in the sink area that was not part of the original plan. Chris was very accommodating in taking care of these details to ensure our satisfaction.

In the end, it was the successful kitchen makeover we were hoping to achieve! Six months after completion of the project, we are still delighted with the results, and it is a pleasure to prepare meals and entertain guests.

So we are most happy to recommend Rosseland Remodeling for remodeling work and would not hesitate to work with them on any of our future remodeling needs.

We purchased a 1250sf 60s split-level home in Park Ridge more or less original condition and hired Rosseland Remodeling to build a 200+ sf addition on the back of the house and remodel the kitchen. We interviewed several contractors, and we hired Chris for a couple reasons: 1) he seemed genuinely excited for us about our ideas for the house, 2) he was the only one who made a point during the interview to talk about how he would get the construction equipment to the back of the house (which was a practical detail we appreciated), 3) he sent us a handwritten thank you note after meeting us, and when his estimate was ready, he offered to meet with us personally to discuss it in further detail and provided references and list of subs (none of the other contractors we met with followed up on their estimates), and 4) we were taking out a renovation loan and explained to Chris that bank would have requirements for approvals, payments, etc and he agreed he would be able to work within the bank’s guidelines.

Overall, Chris clearly wanted the job the most and had given the logistics some practical thought and told us that what we wanted to do was feasible, so we hired him. The drawing and permit phase took about 2 months from closing, and the construction took about 3 months. The original home had a 15×19 living room and a 12 x 15 eat-in L-shaped kitchen, separated by a non load bearing wall. It felt small, stunted, and dark. We wanted to open up and enlarge the space by removing the wall between those rooms, and reconfiguring the kitchen to have a long island, and add the dining area on the other side. Next to the dining room we wanted a roughly 10×10 mudroom/laundry room that can be entered from the outside or from the garage. We also wanted to extend the crawlspace underneath, as opposed to building the addition on a slab. Chris’ architect, Mark Kollias, thoughtfully designed the addition and new kitchen with our plans in mind in such a way as to integrate it into the existing home; it does NOT look or feel like a box tacked on to the back of the house. He was very meticulous and thorough in his drawings, which made the permit
application process pretty painless. The finished result looks almost exactly how I imagined it in my mind.

Due to bank requirements, Chris, Marc, and Nancy Mueller of CR Cabinetry, the kitchen designer, had to do a fair amount of work before we even closed on our loan. We of course assured them we would pay for their time if we were not able to close, but it still took a leap of faith on their part and I know there are some contractors out there that would not have (or do not have the financial stability to have) dealt with the additional bank requirements and paperwork. Or, they would have required an upfront payment. We’re grateful that Chris and his colleagues hung in there with us while we got everything squared away with the bank. Chris’ kitchen designer, Nancy Muller of CR Cabinetry, helped bring our vision for the new kitchen to reality by helping us design a modern, streamlined kitchen that is still warm and inviting. Her expertise helped us select cabinets and appliances, decide on a layout, choose a cabinet color (which looks great!), and maximize our available cabinet space, but still achieve the open floor plan look without any clutter. We have had several parties of 20+ people, and folks tend to gather around the island, but it does not feel cramped. The kitchen reminds me the modern kitchens I see in magazines!

I still can’t believe it’s mine sometimes. We did have an issue with the appearance of the cabinets which was more of a manufacturer issue. It was easily resolved and our cabinets look great. Other than the kitchen and addition, Chris’ subs did extensive work including relocating the laundry to the first floor (which frees up the old laundry room for us to use as an office), plumbing in the kitchen for the island sink and a new line for the refrigerator, upgrading nearly all the electrical service in the house, adding exhaust fans in both bathrooms, hvac updates and relocating the a/c condenser, vacuuming the air ducts, drywalling the addition and 1 bedroom, painting the entire house inside and out, installing new hardwood floor and tile in the addition, refinishing the existing hardwood floors, and replacing baseboards throughout.

This was our first home purchase and first renovation project of any kind, so we didn’t know exactly hat to expect.

Chris repeatedly said it would go smoothly, and it did. Chris usually did not contact us unless he had a specific question for us, but he returned our calls promptly and would give us updates when asked. We did not live in the home during the construction, but we went to check things out all the time. We could talk to any of the subs that were there and see daily progress. There were a few things that were stressful, but most of the time those things were related to us choosing tile, appliances, paint, etc. I was also concerned at the beginning about having all the trades people chosen for us (as opposed to vetting them
ourselves), but they all did a good job. There were a couple surprises along the way, but no major ones given the scope of the project. I never worried about the quality of the workmanship, or that the work
would not be done on time. I remember being at a 4th of July party talking about the work to another guest that worked in construction, and he said something like, ?Your contractor gave you a move-in date
already? Good luck with that! Well, aside from a handful of minor punch list items, our house ready and clean on our move-in date as promised, and we love our home.

Designed and constructed 200+ sf addition (with extended crawl space underneath) to existing home, complete kitchen remodel, electrical upgrade, paint, refinish floors, replace baseboards, install exhaust fans in 2 baths.

From the beginning, a couple of things struck us: 1) Rosseland Remodeling returned our call right away and were out to give us an estimate within a couple of days, and 2) it was apparent the owner, Chris, sincerely wanted to help us. We had 2 other contractors come to the house to give estimates. They took our blueprints but never got back to us. We were comfortable with Chris and felt Rosseland was the right fit for us. From day one, Chris provided a schedule and stuck with it. Admittedly, we were very lucky with the weather, but we were amazed that his team, or team of sub-contractors, showed up each day as planned. We were happy with the decisions we had made regarding the major work that was underway, but the one area we were unsure about was the porch. Chris took the time to understand our needs, did some quick drawings and came up with a plan that we just love. Overall, we simply couldn’t be happier with the results!

Our home was built in 1937 and in need of a major overhaul. Our original intent was to replace the siding and windows and build a small room off the back of the house. Through probing questions, Rosseland Remodeling was able to understand our needs more fully. Right off, they recommended Pella wood replacement windows so we could maintain the original woodwork which was in good shape. They also worked with us to redesign the front porch of the house, which greatly enhanced its curb appeal. They suggested we change the pitch of the roof over the porch and add a new roof to the entire house. Special trim was added above the windows and doors. The new family room is perfect for us and seems to open up the rest of the house considerably. Rosseland did an excellent job matching the woodwork in the new room with the existing trim throughout the house. The crew was also very particular about cleaning up at the end of each day. The quality of workmanship is top-notch!

From the initial visit through the completion of the project, Chris Rosseland, his employees and his partners were helpful, patient, informative, on-time and on-budget. Pros: Chris Rossland was a pleasure to work with. He kept every committment and was completly accessible throughout the project Chris recommended only quality partners. All tradesmen and laborers arrived on-time and conducted themselves professionally. Over the 4 weeks to complete the job, the work area was kept very clean and considerable atttention was paid to minimize impact to the rest of the home. Outside of the scope of the project, and at no expense to us, Chris had our entire first floor cleaned (nice touch!). We love our new kitchen and feel that it represents everything that we were trying to accomplish. Chis Rosseland and his parners made this possible by exposing us to great ideas, quality products, and a huge dose of patience!

Mark Sturwald

It can be intimidating to conceive such a project, and Chris’ work and positive attitude reassured us each step of the way. The project, from the first hole in the ground to finish, except for minor punch list items, took only four months. The subcontractors were all very competent and friendly, and took the time to understand us. There are always minor glitches in such a big project on an existing home, but they were all handled with no problems. In case something is unknown to both of us, there’s a one year guarantee on all work. So far, everything is perfect. There were no bad surprises, and we have to say there were good surprises in how well it went. For example, we used our own kitchen designer, which is scary because once we designed the kitchen, it was up to Chris to install everything. He took everything we did, installed the cabinets and appliances and turned our dreams into a beautiful kitchen. Along the way, Chris set up a temporary kitchen for us, so our lives and routines weren’t disrupted. Another good surprise is that we never had to move out of the house. Everyone was careful to clean up and move tools and materials out of our way at day’s end. Overall, it was a very satisfying project, we would be glad to use Chris again.

Chris Rosseland of Rosseland Remodeling was the general contractor (GC) on a major remodeling, room addition and expansion of our two-story family home in Arlington Heights. This was an architected project which gutted our existing kitchen and extended the kitchen and dining area, and added an upstairs bedroom. Before choosing Chris, we talked to 6 or 7 contractors. We preferred Chris, who was professional, credentialed, experienced and had excellent references. Chris carefully reviewed our architect’s plans and gave us a bid we could understand in a timely manner. We liked the facts that Chris runs the project himself, unlike others we spoke to, that he listens well and answers questions, not condescending, not over committed and has not been doing speculative building of homes. There seems to be a lot of turnover and turmoil in some companies, and this is not the case with Chris.

How did it go overall? Outstanding! We received Rosseland Remodeling’s telephone number from our local paper. We called and were in touch with the owner, Chris Rosseland. Chris came to our house within a day after our original call and met with my wife. My wife was immediately comfortable with him & his approach. Chris provided us a packet of information on his company, his work, general information & questions to ask contractors, and telephone numbers (better business bureau, state of Illinois numbers, etc.). I loved this approach. No other contractors supplied anything like this. We had a design in mind and that is what we had all contractors bid their estimates against. After 5-6 other bids, and after confirming Chris’s references, the choice was abundantly clear. They were able to start shortly after we signed our contract. They started quickly and had people working in our house every day for 7 weeks. Rosseland keeps the work moving & has someone at your house consistently (no week gaps where people aren’t working).

Chris personally worked with us to confirm the design & the details of the project prior to the start. The project started with the rough framing which Chris & his team completed. The Electric and HVAC were completed by contractors that Chris has worked extensively with and we were very happy with their work & reliability. The plumbing was completed by Chris’s team, along with drywall hanging. Another contractor was responsible for the taping, sanding, and painting of drywall. Chris & his team then completed all detail work including ceiling, trim, etc. Cabinetry was purchased through another company recommended by Chris and installed by Rosseland. Carpeting was purchased and installed by another company (recommended by Chris). Both the cabinetry and carpeting was included in the estimate via an allowance, so any cost overage was due to our decisions..

The project was a great success overall and is something we are very proud of. Overall Chris Rosseland & his team are fantastic. He is respectful, reliable, and trustworthy. Chris doesn’t nickel & dime you and his price is very fair for the work and reliability. Not cheap, not expensive, well priced. While he let’s you make your own decisions, he will also guide and provide recommendations when appropriate. Our overall experience was very positive & Rosseland Construction will be our first choice in the future.

Rosseland Remodeling completed a full basement remodeling for our home. This remodeling included framing, electrical, plumbing, drywall, carpeting, cabinetry, etc. Rosseland Remodeling completed all the framing, plumbing, drywall, and used reliable contractors/retail for the completion of the electric, carpeting, and cabinetry. Rosseland acted as the general contractor for the project.

Chris and his team were AMAZING! I was home on maternity leave and the entire 3 week bathroom remodeling project went flawlessly. He laid out the plan and let us know when to expect what. They even made us aware of days that might be particularly loud, given the often sleeping baby. His team was extremely punctual every day.

They were polite and explained the plan for the day in case it changed from what was originally laid out. There was daily clean up so we never had to live with mess. At one point there was an issue with dirt that got on the carpet from the tile portion of the job, and when the project was complete, Chris sent someone to clean the carpets!

I cannot rave enough about how wonderful the entire process was. I only wish our upstairs bathroom was as nice as the one in the basement :) Chris and his team made magic happen in our basement. He took what was once a dingy laundry room and transformed it into our best bathroom in the house, and was able to move our laundry room to a better place, and make is much less dingy too!

Nicole Torillo

Overall, the results were beautiful. Everyone who has seen the work has been very impressed.
Though there were some delays due to subcontractors, everything in the end worked out beautifully.
Chris is very responsive and personable; he wants to make the customer completely satisfied.
This was our first experience with remodeling, and we weren’t quite prepared for what it entailed or how long it would last; in the end it was what we had hoped for.
Our next project is to remodel our kitchen, and Rosseland will be our first choice.

Chris Rosseland gave us our first bid. After he left we knew we wanted to hire him but needed other bids. Everyone else who came in had to live up to Chris and they all fell short. Chris’ professionalism and upbeat personality spoiled us for anyone else coming in to do work in our house. Chris completed the job so beautifully and completely within budget. In fact, Chris went over and above by finding us a better and affordable way to run heat and a/c into that space, which was something we didn’t think we could afford.

All of Chris’ workers showed up on time, were very clean, and it was my pleasure to get to know them. Each of them really enjoying working for Chris and it shows in the job they do. The trim work all matched the existing work, the drywall installation was fabulous, and the room looks better than we had thought it could. Chris and his staff seem like they have become our family or friends. The job took 3 weeks which was the time frame Chris originally gave us. One of Chris’ workers, Carlos, was a real gem and took such great care of us. I would hire Chris again in a heartbeat…in fact I’m hoping to find a reason to hire him again. I cannot say enough great things about Chris and his company. They do a really professional and beautiful job, they are very clean and friendly, and Chris will do whatever he can to stay within a budget and give you the most that he can for it.

There was never a day without workers and the clean up was impeccable every day. I always had access to Chris every time I had a question and if he didn’t pick up the phone he always called right back. He was at the house at all the important times and would drop by at other times. I felt I could thoroughly trust him. There was never a problem with Chris even if I thought there might be. The main thing with Chris is everything in the end comes together beautifully…no problem. What a relief. I finally struck gold with Rosseland. He is very laid back but that is combined with outstanding professionalism. My lower level was a total gut of a 1960’s Jetson style and it was turned into a very comfortable and updated, sleek piece of art. That may sound like overkill but everyone who sees it can’t believe their eyes. It is brand new yet still blends with the rest of the house. I would use Chris again in a heartbeat.

Chris had an architect draw up exact plans for my approval, got a dumpster, porta potty, plumber, electrician, dry wallers, hvac, tilers, carpenters and also had places lined up for me to purchase fixtures, carpet, tiles, cabinets. He also has a great guy who does a lot of the work like baseboards, doors and painting. I had a bathroom with shower installed, new walk in storage closet, new laundry room and of course the main family room.

Chris responded to our call for an estimate within the day and made an appointment for the following evening. We immediately liked him and knew that we wanted to work with him. He was warm, professional, and confident that we could get the home we dreamed of within our budget. Even after receiving several bids, we went with our gut and chose Chris and we couldn’t be happier that we did. Chris was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. He really listened to what we wanted to achieve and did not simply try to build a “box” on the back of our house. He immediately established a great working relationship with our architect, which made the process flow quickly and easily.

Chris gave us a timeline for the work and he nailed it. His communication was excellent; he speaks with you in person, on the phone or via email to let you know of the daily progress of the job. He gave us at least a week’s notice for any inconveniences we might have. His crews are professional, friendly, and respectful. This was especially important for us since we have two young children in the home. Our friends and family have consistently commented on the high quality workmanship and beauty of our “new” home.

Chris truly became a part of our family and we will miss him! We simply can’t recommend Chris any higher. He’s one of a kind and we would trust him to handle any size job in our home. We used Rosseland Remodeling to build a two-story addition on our 1929 house. We added a family room, mud room and master suite upstairs and bumped out our kitchen. We refinished 75 year old floors, tore out pergo flooring and installed air conditioning. We also tore out our boiler (and radiators) and added 2 energy efficient furnaces.

We decided last year to add onto our house rather than move. We were looking for a builder that wasn’t going to go out of business halfway through the project, was going to do quality work, and had experience adding onto a basement. We met Chris pretty early on in the process and knew right away that he was our first choice. He was extremely professional and very easy to get along with. The first day he came out to look at our job he brought a folder with information about his company, credentials, and references. He was very quick at responding to messages, always within a day and usually even within minutes. He had excellent reviews on Angie’s List, excellent BBB rating, and no problems turned up in the Experian report we ran on him. He was helpful with providing written estimates for the banks we were trying to get loans from and revising the estimate when we had to scale back the project. He did this without even knowing if he was getting the job. Also, he was finishing up a job where he added onto someone’s basement and had us come over to see how it turned out for ourselves. Nevertheless, we felt that we had to do our due diligence and get bids from a few contractors.

Although a couple of them came in a little lower they couldn’t come close to Chris with regard to reviews, credentials, communication, and personality. Considering everything mentioned above, there was no question that we felt most comfortable with Chris doing the job and it was worth the money. After signing the contract, the work started within a couple weeks. Chris listened to our concerns about protecting a Maple tree near the work zone and took steps to protect it. He took care with the sections of my fence and deck that needed to be removed during the construction and everything was put back together very nicely. He put up a temporary fence across the backyard so that the work and debris would stay within that area and my young kids could have the other half of the yard to safely play in. In the basement he put down plastic on the carpet, covered up the furniture and toys, and put up a temporary plastic wall to keep all the dust within a confined area.

He really took a lot of care to protect our house and minimize any mess. I couldn’t believe how fast things were happening. Within 2 months the rooms were done and ready for paint and trim. It was really impressive how Chris had everything scheduled so that there was very little down time. The workers were always on time in the morning and usually done for the day by dinner time so there was very little disruption in our lives for much of the project. There really weren’t any problems during the construction but if there ever was something that I wanted done a little different Chris took care of it. We later ended up also having Chris reside the entire house and replace the bedroom windows as well. Everything turned out great and we love our “new” home. Thanks Chris!

Rosseland Remodeling built a room addition onto our house which consisted of a ground level room and basement level room. The upper room has a cathedral ceiling with lots of windows. They upgraded our electric service panel and A/C unit. They resided our entire house with vinyl siding and replaced all the bedroom windows.

We found Rosseland Remodeling through Angie’s List and had Chris Rosseland out to our home. He was very personable and very interested in making our project perfect for us. His price was very competitive and we liked him, so he got the job. The project moved along at a great pace and did not interrupt our lives at all. The contract spelled out everything and we were never surprised with price add-ons. The architect worked within our town’s building requirements to design just the space we wanted. Once we broke ground, someone was at our home almost every day moving the build along. The siding, flooring, paint, everything matched perfectly with our existing home.

They were very clean and kept messy areas taped off until they were done (for example, they had to tear up our basement sealing to run furnace ducts, but they kept that area sealed off until it was all back to normal). Chris even made sure that we didn’t forget things we didn’t want now, but may want later (like a ceiling fan hookup and cable connection), which I really appreciated. Everyone was very professional and if I ever had a question or concern, it was immediately addressed. In addition, my father (who used to be in construction) continues to be very impressed with the room that was built. I would hire Rosseland Remodeling again in a heartbeat.

Description of work: Rosseland Remodeling built us a 16′ x 18′ home addition with an underlying unfinished basement addition.

Communication was very important to us. Corresponding with Chris was easy and reassuring. We stumbled into some unforeseen challenges as can be expected with many remodel projects, the matters were addressed quickly and completely. The carpenters, plumbers, electricians and flooring contractor that partnered with Chris were all excellent. It was notable to us that Chris Rosseland has long standing relationships with a network of quality tradesmen. We hired our own contractors for waterproofing and HVAC before hiring Rosseland, Chris worked seamlessly with them too. Bottom Line … Our home is like new and the finished project exceeded our expectations. An officer of our Homeowner’s Association said it looks like a new model home! Job well done!

Outstanding job by Chris Rosseland and his team. We purchased a run down foreclosure and wanted extensive work done. Chris designed and built a 600 sq. ft. master bedroom suite over our garage. Rosseland also installed new siding, windows and doors for the entire house. On the inside we did a complete teardown of the kitchen and baths – installing all new cabinets, fixtures, tile and granite countertops. Chris also installed beautiful new hardwood floors and carpeting.

This project was terrific from beginning to end. And not many people can say that about remodeling. Chris always kept my goal in mind. His suggestions were excellent and some of them even reduced the price. His workers were always on time, left at a decent hour (before dinner), and always cleaned up after themselves. Their work was excellent and I dont think the project could have gone any better. I’m thrilled with the results – I’ve rec’d only positive feedback on the bathrooms from realtors and potential buyers. I love the bathrooms and plan to have Chris come out to the new house to remodel out there.

Complete remodeling of two bathrooms, remodeling of a third bathroom, repair kitchen cabinet, install stove, replaced doors.

Everything was just how you want your remodeling to go. They did what they said and said what they did. Everyone was professional and considerate and did outstanding work and I would hire them again!!
