Customer Review From this Room Addition in Arlington Heights, IL
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.
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.
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).
Kathy and Rainer, Hoffman Estates Room Addition
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.
Chris with the GC we worked with to design and build our 1,100 sq ft room addition. 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!
Chris and Sarah, Arlington Heights 2 story Addition
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.
Tom and Lori, 2 Story Home Addition in Arlington Heights
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.
Review from a Room Addition, Whole House Remodeling Project in South Barrington from Bill and Janice
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.
