I am in Chicago and hired EDPOL Construction, Inc. to finish my
basement. We sat down with them and went through a detailed contract
and spent about 2 hours talking about fit and finish. Framing,
plumbing, and electrical were all great, but fit and finish (e.g.,
trim, painting, ceramic tile, vinyl tile, window) were all garbage! I
swear they had an 8 year old do this work, which we told them were
extremely important. My wife and I have done much better work
ourselves on this exact work, but we hired them so we wouldn't have to
touch anything, plus we thought that their work would look even
better. Under no circumstances should this company be hired to do
anything involving finish work!
Thanks for letting me rant!
