Client Testimonials

The following actual quotes were taken from the "comments" section of our post-completion surveys and from letters we have received from our clients over the past few years. Hear what our clients have said...

“Matt was always professional, knowledgeable, and fun to work with.  He listened to us, answered our questions, and was attentive to any concerns we raised.  He is very client focused unlike other contractors we interviewed. He and his team created quality finishes and took great pains to make them consistent with those of our main living spaces upstairs.  His staff, including John and Glenn, were excellent and always courteous.  Matt and his team worked to minimize the impact to our daily schedules and our quality of living.  While no one likes the upheaval and dust that this process causes, I would highly recommend Matt and his team!”
Jim and Pat L / Complete Basement with Kitchen & Bath / 2014

“Again, Matt, I can’t express to you how happy we are with everything.  After hearing horror stories from people that have gone through a renovation, you are a dream to work with!  Will definitely recommend you to anybody I know.  I appreciate the good service and the quality of work your guys do, and the quality of the materials you use. You’ve made this whole thing painless and left me with a great feeling of satisfaction.  Thanks again!!”

From start to finish Matt was (and is) available to answer any questions we might have and guide us through the whole project. He did not push anything on us but listed to what we wanted and helped us find the best products and solutions to fit both our vision and our budget. I would definitely recommend Philbin Construction & Remodeling to anyone who is thinking of having work done! We are very happy that we did.”

Bernice / Misc. Projects / 2012

"From Matt Philbin's quick response to our initial email inquiry, and throughout our kitchen remodel project, we could not be more satisfied. Matt's vast knowledge and his patience with us during the design phase made us feel confident in him. His professional crews, specifically John and Glenn, were very efficient and professional. The attention to detail and smooth adjustments to unforeseen situations took our anxiety of major remodeling away. We would recommend Philbin Construction."
Neal & Janet / Complete Kitchen Remodel / 2011

“Matt, we couldn’t be happier and cannot imagine having done this kitchen without you. We sincerely thank you for your advice, support, and counsel and a truly professional consultation.

David / Misc. Projects / 2010

"There was never a time I didn't feel comfortable working with Matt, and he listened to me. I found him very easy to work with, and I have to say that even though I have had construction done for me at other places where I've lived, this is the best company that has ever worked for me."

"Very friendly and conscientious workers - across the board!"
Mary / Family Room Remodel / 2010

Steve and Tina / Complete Kitchen / 2010

"I could not find one tiny thing wrong with my bathroom! You have fabulous, fabulous employees! I'd recommend you guys 5000%!"
Asta / Bath Remodel / 2010

"Matt Philbin is extremely professional and I would work with him again in a heartbeat. He showed up on time to meet with me and came over a second time to meet with my husband. He was also on-sight frequently when his workers were here. Matt has assembled an incredible team of trades people who know exactly what they are doing as they are very experienced. An incredible amount of forethought was needed for this project due to wiring and plumbing concerns and the results were stunning. They were very careful to clean up after each day. My husband and I selected the tile and counter-tops. Matt's showroom in Mokena is beautiful and he has a lot of samples that he let me keep for a long while as I was making color decisions, which was nice. I made two change orders that affected his actual quote, which if taken without those change orders was only .85 cents over. I found that impressive. There were no financial surprises at all. Matt has a great sense of humor and was a pleasure to work with, even performing marriage counseling when my husband and I had a breakdown at Home Depot! We called him on a Saturday and he talked us through our decision, he was available by phone at all times which was really helpful. Remodeling can be stressful but I think this was actually the most stress free construction project I've ever been through. I'm very pleased with the result and people think I installed new cabinets. Nice job Philbin Construction and Remodeling!"

Gregg / Bath Remodel / 2009

"What I especially like about the company is their personalized service and the fact that they will answer all of your questions. When you call them about something, they'll call you back. You're not waiting around for two or three days to get an answer. We've used Philbin before, and my husband and I think they are very professional and knowledgable"

Nikki & Jim / Complete Kitchen / 2008

"Everyone was very sociable and very nice to talk to. I told Matt that all the workmen deserved a raise. The crews were exceptionally clean and there was never a mess when they left for the night! My only regret was waiting as long as I did to do this!"
Louise / Complete Kitchen / 2008

Scott & Donna / Complete Kitchen / 2008

Marty & Maribeth / Complete Kitchen / 2008

"Matt & his crew were courteous and did a great job!"
Lynn / Bath Remodel / 2008

"Having someone in your home that you can trust is priceless. Leaving the house alone with Matt was like leaving it with your brother - maybe even better. Maybe we're foolish not to go and get a couple of quotes from various contractors, but we've always felt that Philbin Construction was fair about their prices, and they always do what they say they will."

And, a letter of a different variety - from a client who found a "cheaper" price...
"…Our decision to go with a national home improvement chain was determined by the fact that they carried a less expensive cabinet and employed contractors charging less. Our final experience was "you get what you pay for". We were not happy with our experience, as the results were the opposite of why we decided to use them. I wish we could have afforded you and your suppliers. However, we would always recommend you to anyone who asks without hesitation."
