City: Lincoln Park, Chicago IL, Project: Land Scaping "Dave of Design Concepts contacted me via Service Magic about landscaping two flower beds out front of our condo building in Lincoln Park. Shortly after our initial contact Dave visited the site and emailed me a detailed estimate and referral list. Our association had a tight budget and he worked with us to create a very nice and sturdy arrangement that would hold up to all the foot traffic that passes by. Dave and his team worked hard to fix up the beds and used a nice variety of plants; they now look fantastic! After he was done installing, Dave discussed with me the types of plants used, provided watering instructions and recommendations for maintenance in the fall. After working with Dave it is clear that he is very detailed oriented, has a good eye for design, and is very passionate about the work is company does. I would highly recommend Design Concepts for their professional and efficient customer service and the high quality and beauty of their work. We were very pleased with the landscaping project they did for us and won't hesitate to contact them for future projects. Lori Novak Chicago, IL 60614" __________________________________________________________ City: Chicago IL Project: Landscaping "The landscaping in the front of our town home association hadn't been touched in several years. Weeds and overgrowth were everywhere, itwas a mess. We contacted Design Concepts to come to the rescue. Within a couple hours, we had a call back from Dave. We scheduled a site visit and were impressed enough to move forward with a design. Dave came out a couple days later with a beautiful color drawing that detailed all of our possible options, presented an itemized quote of all the work that would be involved, and gave us a list of 15 references we could call on for peace of mind. We presented this to our town home association board and they were so impressed that they decided we should do the courtyard as well. We signed the paperwork and a few days later had Dave and his crew were cleaning up all the weeds, removing overgrown trees and bushes, and trimming trees. Then they installed a beautiful stone walkway, fertilizers, mulch, a wonderful assortment of plants and bushes in the front and flowers in the courtyard. They cleaned up everything and provided us with watering instructions and plans to add to our design for next year. Its difficult to please all members of a town home or condo association but Dave and Design Concepts did the job. We plan on using them for many years for all of our landscaping needs. We also found out they do more than just landscaping and have already begun plans to have them work on the interior of our house. From talking with they're references, this quality of work is par forcourse in everything they do. Sincerely, Brian Cahill Buena Vista Townhome Association" __________________________________________________________ City: Chicago IL Project: Interior Painting and Decorating "To Whom It May Concern: I was searching on the Internet for an interior house painter, when I found Design Concepts Expert Contractors. I was looking for more that just a painter that would provide neat home interior painting; I was also looking for someone who could help me create an astonishing effect to my home. I selected Design Concepts Expert Contractors to come to my home for an in-home painting estimate. Initially, the aspect that stood out among the other painting contractors that I interviewed was David had prepared a very professional presentation that included a Power Point slide presentation, a company overview and a detailed reference list. During our first meeting I could instantly feel David痴 passion for the interior design services that Design Concepts Expert Contractors provides. After our meeting, David and I agreed to meet in a week to go over a detailed proposal which included a customized design service, a detailed bid and a completion timeline. When it was time to select my paint colors, I always thought that I would pick my own colors however, I had no clue how I would make them flow throughout my home since I have a loft style townhouse which you can see almost every room from the Living Room. David got to know me through our various meetings; he selected my colors by using my taste of existing furniture, cabinetry, flooring, window treatments and accessories. It was as though he could envision the exact look that I wanted to achieve. David, and his team Stephan and Denny began transitioning my foyer, powder rooms and family room into a work of art using Venetian Plaster, Faux Finish Stripes and Color Blocks. When my painting project was completed every room in my home just flows into the next with warm colors from Benjamin Moore Paint. Also, I can not forget about my kitchen custom tile/ stone, and glass mosaic back splash, it has been described as a kitchen out of a reality TV show. David and his main assistant Stephan, are so creative, detailed and true perfectionists. Whenever my family and friends come to visit they can not get pass the entryway they are so impressed by the elegant foyer, powder room and that I found the Design Concepts Expert Contractors on the Internet. Last but not least the entire Design Concepts Expert Contractors team was professional, highly skilled, punctual, trustworthy and neat (they cleaned everything). I will definitely use Design Concepts, Inc. again for my home interior needs. Sincerely, Nola" __________________________________________________________ City: Chicago IL Project: Open loft space conversion to kids/office room "Hi David, Please find below our feedback comment: The Design Concepts Expert Contractors lead and managed by David is one of the most professional design and contractor company that we have worked with. The project we hired David's company to perform for our semi-loft condominium was a a bit unique due to the complexity involved. With a new baby in our life, we needed to close out one of our bedrooms with a wall and a french door. Although my wife and I had a rough idea as to what we wanted, Dave and his company was the enabler that helped us bring to life something we had in mind but not on paper. Dave helped us develop an approach to tackle our immediate issue and that was enveloped with a creative solution that Dave put together for us. He suggested well thought out design ideas and brought to fruition the ideas and the end result was more than what we had expected. Dave and his team of two individuals created one of the best rooms in our condo. From the detailed craftsmanship with the built in book shelf Dave suggested and built with the new wall, to the custom french door he ordered from a specialty store which resulted in a more cost effective project since it was locally sourced. Dave also added excellent lighting to bring the room a completely fresh feel and he also suggested amazing color choices, resulting in a great room that can be easily converted from a kids room to an office room. Dave also built an amazing granite desk to the new wall. What we wanted was simply a door and a wall, but instead we got more than what we wanted and that was not just a room, but a room that we like to see every day as soon as we walk in to our condo. The new addition looks like it was part of the original structure, that's how clean and fresh the new addition looks like. As for Dave and his team, we cannot talk enough about how much we liked working with them and having them at our place. When anyone wants something done to their house, especially when there is nothing wrong with how it looks like, there is always a thought in your mind whether it is worth going through the hassle of getting a contractor and getting a project done and just hope for the best. However, with Dave and his crew, it is a completely different feeling and rest assured, you will love his work and best of all, the experience. We look forward to recommending him to our family and friends for any contractor job. And hopefully look forward to working with him in the near future if we even need him again for a job. Thanks again. Zubair p.s. - You should get on Facebook and promote your company." __________________________________________________________ City: Darien IL. Project: Various "Design Concepts Expert Contractors is an example of an exceptionally tallented, creative and professional group. Dave is unique in his flair for design and color combinations. Dave and staff have designed and decorated for us for over 20 years and we have always been very pleased with the completed project. Gene and Lois Wensel" __________________________________________________________ City: Orland Park Project: Master Bathroom Renovation Client: Val "What started as a bathroom update, turned into a beautiful remodel. Not only did Dave recommend fixtures, tile, vanity and granite top, but he also recommended paint colors. He took it steps further, and added a custom faux finish to the wall, which pulls all the color from the tile together; created a custom frame for the mirror, custom painting the frame to match the color of the fixtures. We took it even further and had a custom cornice made which he matched to the window frame color. Dave and his crew (Stephen and Denny) did such a beautiful job in the bath remodel, we had them paint the master bedroom, bringing the colors from the bathroom into the bedroom making it a very cohesive look. We didn稚 stop there, they did such a great job on the master bath remodel, our second bathroom was also painted in a custom job, making use of strips, which made the small room look much bigger and brighter. Everything looks fantastic. It痴 not just the quality of work, it was Dave痴 attention to detail that stand out. Now that the job is done, I couldn稚 be happier. We had the family over for a barbeque, and everyone loved it. I would highly recommend Dave and his crew for any professional job. One stop shopping. Design Concepts does it all." ___________________________________________________________________________ City: Chicago Project: Custom Built ins, Woodworking, Crown Molding and Painting "Dear Dave, Fred and I are thrilled with the work you and your team did with our family room.

Outstanding work! We are delighted and excited about our new bath! Thank you so much. Crew was professional, hard working, very polite and cleaned up beautifully every day. Their experience, follow through, and knowledge of the business were outstanding. Job was completed in a timely manner. The glass shower doors are something I have always wanted. Love the way our new bathroom looks. During the design process Dave gave us a number of useful pointers, which we're pleased to say, it has given our finished bathroom the classic yet practical finish that we hoped for. Even the smallest details were thought out. The quality of the products used were of much higher standard than would have been installed had we gone somewhere else." ___________________________________________________________________________ City: Ingleside, IL Project: Specialty Painting - Faux Finishes "Dave and his entire team at Design Concepts Expert Contractors team are exceptional.
