"OHi remodeled our house nearly down to the studs. They developed an open concept on the main level, replaced all the floors with beautiful hardwood or super-soft carpet, updated all the bathrooms, and created a kitchen that's the envy of our neighborhood & friends. The finishing touch was the gorgeous white trim & modern two-panel doors. We were matched with a great designer who helped us through the entire process & our onsite crew was fantastic (thanks, Tommy!). Everything was done professionally & in a timely manner. They did all the research & work so we didn't have to which saved me a ton of time & effort. OHi took a home that was stuck in the 80s & helped transform it into our dream house! Would highly recommend & will work with them on our other projects in the future."
"My husband and I recently purchased our first home in December of 2014. With the costs of closing and furnishing our new home, our budget for home remodels and repairs for our first year was limited to a smaller budget than anticipated, but OHI provided great services at a very affordable price. We decided to start with what would make the biggest impact, our carpeting and ballisters that are the focal point of our entry way and two story living room. We chose a darker carpeting and a wonderful foam padding that is comfortable enough to sleep on. The team came out in 2 days from our call to measure and just a week later it was already installed. The crew was amazing and moved all of our furniture for us and cleaned up every scrap before leaving. The install took 8 hours for 5 rooms. For ballisters we went with a iron spindle, this project was also completed in one day...it's a great feeling to leave for work and come home to a brand new house! My husband and I have been so impressed we have had them come back for carpet cleanings and painting. We have several more projects in mind for the future and we will definitely be calling OHi. They have made a customer for life!"
"From our project manager to our framers and finish carpenters, we were extremely pleased with the quality of work and the collaborative nature of our relationship with OHi. Throughout the project, we felt that OHi was truly invested in the success of our project and they were willing to go the extra effort to deliver the project with a level of quality that we desired."
"We were under a time frame and OHi delivered. We had an entire condo renovated and the results were great. The project manager was terrific as were all the tradespeople. We moved in on time, on budget and are very happy."
"These people are wonderful. I had no idea what I was doing. John Kautz guided me through everything. Tile, vanities, fixtures, marble tops for both bathrooms. Tile for the entryway and carpet for the whole place. Then Sharon Hodgson did all of the window treatments. Keep in mind, they have everything in their showroom and all of their own people to do the work. No running around to find what you want and then find installers...hoping they know what they are doing. I cannot say enough nice things about this company!!"
"Fast and painless carpet installation. Very impressed!"
"From the time we started looking at carpets to the instillation, OHi was very cordial and helpful. The person installing the carpet was excellent and did an out standing job."
"From beginning to end, we were very impressed and satisfied with our kitchen remodel. The design was creative, functional and contemporary which was what we were looking for. Opening up the entire living space to an open kitchen/dining and living area from what was closed and compartmentalized before. The project was well managed by Jeff Goble, keeping the project on track and on budget. The craftsmanship of the work was outstanding. The carpentry, granite installation, back splash installation, plumbing and electrical work was highly professional and well done. Very skilled tradesman. Something you don't see much anymore. All the way around a great team. We couldn't have asked for anything more. The project came in on time and on budget."
"We bought and completely remodeled a condo. John was our sales person and advisor, and Jeff was our project manager. We could not have been happier with the outcome. Both of these guys were by our side the entire time. They listened to our concerns and resolved any problems we may have encountered. I have since recommended OHi to others."
"We were thrilled with the outcome, more than we expected. Tommy and the carpentry crew went over and above and John the plumber did some amazing work. Although we ended up doing more than we expected, the finished product is Fantastic and its still hard to believe that it is our house. Thanks to Jeff, Jim and all at OHi."
"From the first visit when OHi gathered information for the estimate, through the construction supervised by very competent, responsive and responsible Jeff Goble, all the way to the cleanup day, we were completely pleased with the project. Workers were respectful of existing walls, wood floors and stairs. Each craftsman showed expertise and high performance: plumbing, electric, insulation, tile and woodworking. Designer Mary was very helpful guiding me through the many choices of tiles for the master bath, as well as several granite countertops, always keeping me within the budget allowances. We were able to communicate easily with all the craftsmen and felt confident about their work and personal character, whether we were home or not. We have recommended OHi to anyone who asks about the project and will continue to do so."
"I enjoyed working with John Kautz. He was very understanding of my needs and extremely helpful with suggestions. The OHi team did a great job installing everything. We are very satisfied with our remodeled bathroom and will definitely use OHi again for our next project. I highly recommend them for their professionalism."
"I saw an OHi van at my neighbors house almost every day for about a month so I asked him what got done. He got a full bathroom remodel and said to give them a call if I was thinking about getting any work done on my house. The next day I called to see if i could get a quote to update my bathroom and they sent a sales person out the next day. The salesman first spent time with me talking about what I was looking for and took some measurements and then we talked some more about specifics. He seemed incredibly knowledgeable but I was still skeptical since I don't know much about remodeling or costs. Within the next week he got me a quote with breakdowns of everything. He called me back a couple days after to see if i had any questions or needed clarification on anything. I wanted to make a change on the plan and he worked with me to tailor it exactly to what i envisioned. When the project started he was readily available through out the entire process to answer any concerns I had. The crew that did the work was very professional. They were careful about not getting dust and dirt all over the house and checked in with me from time to time to make sure that it was looking how I wanted. I would recommend this company to anyone and everyone. I had a great experience with each person I came across there and it resulted in a beautiful and affordable new bathroom for me."
"When we were ready to do a major renovation of our kitchen, we wanted to be as creative with the space as possible. We have a very open floor plan and knew we needed professionals who could guide us, yet we had some ideas of our own! We met with and got quotes from multiple companies in the area. We ultimately decided to use OHi for a couple of reasons... 1) the fact that we built a trust with Mary, who gave us a clear vision for the project as well as a timeline with an efficient process to get our home finished as quickly as possible, 2) after seeing different ideas from each company, OHi ultimately listened to the ideas we had and set out to make that a reality and 3) most importantly, the fact that we knew we could trust them in our home. Jeff, our project manager, was caring and listened to any issues we had and had them solved immediately. The rest of the crew was extremely gracious from day one and it was reassuring to know we had the same crew working on our kitchen throughout the project We were so pleased that not only were they on time daily and on schedule for the project, but that the people doing the work were so outstanding. From the first time we set foot in the showroom until our project was finished, everyone at this company was friendly, courteous and immensely talented! We love the finished product, and would look to OHi again for our next major home improvement project!"
"It was an easy choice when deciding to work with OHi on our basement remodel. From the start they were helpful, knowledgable and attentive. We had never done construction, but they helped us through every step. They were on board with all of our ideas and had a lot of their own, everything came together better than we imagined. Every person we worked with was great. From John and Jeff answering a million questions for us, to the workers being respectful of our home and cleaning up every day. Their showroom made decision making a breeze. We love spending time in our new basement, everyone that has seen it has been blown away. We have plans to work with OHi for a few other projects in our home in the near future!"
"I had a great experience with them!! Professional and genuine. The sales lady I worked with didn't have that stereotypical pushy- salesman attitude. She worked with me to show me products in my price range and didn't try to push me into buying more things that I "needed" as most sales people tend to do. She was very honest with pricing and we worked together on ideas and came up with the perfect design for my kitchen and living room. Definitely going to call them again for future projects!"
"We actually looked at 8-9 different contractors for our kitchen and mud room remodel, and are extremely happy we decided to go with OHi. Mark was clear with the scope and timeline of the job, and made us comfortable from the start. Our Project Manager, Jeff, was incredibly easy to work with and was in constant communication with us throughout. The tradesmen brought in were all top notch guys - prompt every morning, very polite, clean, and worked hard all day. Mike, Tommy and Will all deserve a mention, but I know I can't remember some of the others that deserve a tip of the cap too. My husband and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND OHi, and wouldn't think twice to use them again."
"With my basement renovation coming to a close and final inspection set to be performed next week, I couldn't wait any longer to share my experience that I had with OHi. My renovation budget was only 30k but OHi made my money go a long way to modernize my 1500 sq ft basement. I started the process several months ago with our designated project manager. From the in-home consultation, he promptly came up with a proposal that met my needs and fit the vision I had in mind for the space. After agreeing on the plans, permits were issued within three weeks and the project began on time. During the first major phase of the remodel, there was extensive electrical work that was performed. OHi brought in ALP. Jeff, the owner of ALP and his associate Mike, were a pleasure to work with and their display of absolute professionalism was reflected in everything they did in my home. When we ran into some unforeseen circumstances, they were able to come up with solutions that didn't impact my budget too much. I felt that they they went above and beyond in so many areas with their customer service and they truly set the benchmark for quality work. Just like Jeff and Mike, the carpenters from OHi that worked in my home displayed the same level of integrity and professionalism. Ray, Paul, Tommy and their entire crew including Chris and Jose were phenomenal. They were all really personable people and each one of them had a major hand in making my basement look great. They never hesitated to ask for my input on my preferences when it came to certain details and were very flexible when I changed my mind on a few things. I could definitely see that customer satisfaction was their number one objective and the quality of their skill does not go unnoticed when you look at the final product. I didn't get all of the names of the drywall team that OHi sent to my home, but their work was also very impressive as there was extensive drywall work that was done. I can't find any spots left untreated. They worked very efficiently and exceeded my expectations with a few things that they were able to do. This has been my first experience with OHi and overall, it has been a great one. They follow through on any requests, concerns or changes made and have been flexible throughout. Everything was done in a timely fashion. I'll post a few before and after photos of the basement when the finishing touches are completed. With many more major renovations in my home that I plan to do in the coming years, OHi has earned my business and I can't wait to have all of these guys come back to perform the work. "
"OHi goes beyond normal customer service. My team of John, Kim, and Jeff were so easy to work with to renovate my condo kitchen. Whenever you are dealing with a condo building there are always restrictions to deal with it and OHi had no problems. They were so helpful in the showroom and when I needed to see my choices next to my furniture, no problem. John and Kim came to me with my sample choices. All the workers from OHi were pleasant, on time, neat , and most of all did beautiful work. My kitchen was completed in the exact time frame established in the beginning. OHi gets a 100% recommendation."
"John and staff have been fabulous to work with on three separate occasions in the past 2 1/2 years. They are efficient and professional in all areas. I will use them again and recommend Johns team to all my friends."
"We recently renovated our kitchen with OHi. We now have the most beautiful kitchen imaginable. With the expertise and guidance of our designer & project manager & crew, we knew we were in good hands from beginning to end. We can’t say enough about the workers to let them know how we feel about the project or the process; they were so patient with us and worked with us every day until it was perfect. I would highly recommend OHi to everyone."
"My husband and I have been getting estimates for years on a kitchen remodel but were never happy with the design or the expenses. After a friends recommendation of OHi we called and could not be happier. From the start, the designers were mindful of our budget and came up with a one of a kind design! From all their workers, from demo, carpentry, drywall, plumbing, flooring, and also hauling away debris were all professional, punctual ,and courteous. If ever there was a concern our general contractor Jeff Goble was there to address the issue. We just love our kitchen and would and have recommended OHi for not only kitchen and bath remodel, but for any other remodeling needs."
"Pavel did an amazing job refinishing our wood flooring throughout our home. He was attentive to every detail, was able to stick to the time frame we had, and cleaned everything up daily. We couldn't be happier with our flooring, and highly recommend OHi!"
"OHi was outstanding. John Kautz arrived on time and gave a great estimate for a kitchen remodel. The work was supervised by John and was on budget, on time and looks beautiful. I am very happy."
"OHi installed hardwood flooring throughout the first floor of our house. It is beautiful and we get a lot of compliments. The flooring was installed by Pavel. The work was finished in a timely manner and each day Pavel totally cleaned up before he left. John and Kim came to our house on more than one occasion to help us pick flooring that would look great with our decorating style as well as our furniture. They both made a return visit after the flooring was complete to help us select area rugs. We are now re-carpeting the second floor of our house and of course we are using OHi."
"I own a business and needed some major work done in a short period of time. Not only was OHi priced competitively, but their project management was first rate and quality of work was exactly what I wanted in the timeframe I wanted (even with all my requests for changes during the project). I highly recommend for all construction projects."
"I had been wanting to remodel my old kitchen for years. The thought of searching for the right crew to tackle the job was intimidating. One day, driving my son to baseball I saw a sign for OHi. I decided to call them. From my first meeting with John and Kim, the culture of the company instantly felt like family. My husband insisted on getting 2nd and 3rd opinions. I interviewed one more just to appease him. My gut told me to go with OHi. And I have no regrets! OHi is AMAZING! Everyone we came in contact with was professional, courteous and great to work with. Kim Malito, the designer, was patient, helpful and on several occasions even came over on her day off to simply calm me down (I am of the paralysis by analysis people) or give advice. She helped me stay on budget and pleased with all her selections. Every crew member who came through, was professional, paid attention to detail and very friendly. My biggest angst was the mess I'd heard construction presents. Well, with OHi it was minimal. The crew would end their day, by cleaning to their best of their ability. One time after drywall it was quite dusty, the project manager wasn't happy and sent a crew after hours to mop the floors!! With every job comes some hiccups. But, with OHi, with every obstacle they were there to rectify and satisfy. If you are considering OHi, stop looking. They are the company for you!"
"I cannot begin to express how thrilled I am with the service, professionalism and thoroughness of OHi! From persevering in finding the most PERFECT flooring with the exact desired effect to finding complementary backsplash, I now have a home remodel that I adore! I would not hesitate in the least to encourage everyone to use OHi for ANY of their home needs. Outstanding service, great listening to your ideas and integrating them with their expertise to complete the project! Great employees who are master craftsmen. They exhibit great pride in their workmanship, and are most congenial and respectful while in your home. They were very considerate of abiding by estimates given and finished in scheduled time. OHi has a full service home improvement company and their "fit and finish" in all aspects for my floor remodel has been beautifully completed by having their expert carpet professionals come in and complete the thresholds between rooms. DEFINITELY WOULD GIVE THEM THE HIGHEST RATING in all aspects of my remodel to the first phone call to set up appointment to the final day!!"
"We used OHi to renovate our upstairs full bath. The design team (Mary & Sarah) was a dream to work with. The project manager (Jeff K.) kept us completely informed throughout the process. The entire team, including the demolition and trades, were very professional. I was extremely pleased with the results, and we enjoy using our beautiful new bathroom! We would definitely recommend OHi for your home improvement projects."
"Thank you OHi for doing a great job on the remodel of our condo. We are extremely satisfied with the results. The cooperation of our senior project manager (Jeff Goble) made it a pleasant experience and we have received many compliments. OHi should be proud of their work. We hope to see more OHi construction trucks at Mission Hills doing remodel work. Thanks to the entire OHI construction and design teams."
"We had our kitchen floor and foyer done recently. We worked with Tammy, who was wonderful, Guided us during this whole process. She was very helpful and reliable. Our installer Kamil was also very professional and such a perfectionist. We love our floors and will be going back to have more work done."
"OHi was the right choice for our whole house remodel! From the start through completion the construction process was well planned and executed. The entire OHI team from designers, project manager, carpenters and all the trades in-between top notch! The final results didn't disappoint. We love our "New" old house! We give OHi a 10 and happily recommend them"See the Transformation
"It was a total pleasure working with John along with the other company representatives. The job for our back splash was quoted at a fair price along with the work being completed in a timely manor. The gentleman who did the work did a beautiful quality job and was a pleasure to have in our house. I would highly recommend OHi and will certainly tell our friends and family of this great experience and company. They are a 100% professional and a class act."
"We have worked with OHi for several years purchasing carpeting, tile for several rooms and most recently remodeling a bathroom. It is like one stop shopping. Entering their place of business begins with an informal meeting with a knowledgeable employee who asked questions in an attempt to understand what we were looking for. Then we leisurely walked around to get some ideas. What I like is that they do not rush you, nor do they push any ideas. They offer as much help as you are comfortable with. If you want they will come to your home to get a feel for what you like and bring any materials that you want to look at in your home. Leave them with you and then they will return to pick them up. The workmen are the best. Knowledgeable, patient, friendly and courteous. And they even return phone calls."
"OHi renovated our kitchen. Wonderful team to work with, from sales to design to construction crew. Very professional and detailed. Highly recommend."
"OHi did an amazing transformation of my kitchen, family room and dining room. Teri the designer helped with all the details from start to finish. I couldn't believe all the choices they have to choose from. It’s a one stop shop with professional work from every tradesman that entered my home. I will use OHi again for my next project."See the Transformation
"We used OHi to remodel our new home. We not only recarpeted our entire home, but OHi also refinished our wood floors and railing, along with installing new hardwood to match. Everything was on schedule and the crew was timely, professional, and easy to work with. At the last minute, we decided to add more hardwood flooring and they made the change without a fuss. We've worked with John and Nick for years and have always loved their work and great insight."
“Thanks to OHi for the great job on the lobby of the Metropolis Theater in Arlington Heights.”
"OHi installed new commercial vinyl laminate flooring in the lobby of our performing arts centre, and we could not be happier with the results! When the installation was done, I had several strangers approach me in the lobby asking who installed the new floor. This was a particularly tricky project for us as a client because of the public nature of the space; we were very concerned about how long the installation would take and how we would allow our patrons to access the space to get to the restrooms, etc. OHi's installers completed this entire project in ONE DAY! Not only that, they worked around our needs as a commercial space and left the space spick-and-span when they were finished. I'd highly recommend OHi to anyone looking for a great result!"
"OHi knows home improvement!!! Great tile, lighting, cabinet, floor, etc. selections. Love John, Sarah, Cheryl and everyone at OHi. Courteous, prompt and professional from start to finish! No pressure -- it's all about the customer!!"
"Tammy was a joy to work with. She listened to my requirements / desires and pre-selected samples that were all good possibilities, I wasn't overwhelmed with too many carpet textures and colors. She helped narrow down to 3 price levels. After taking the boards home and deciding, she came out to measure and was professional, encouraging, and knowledgeable. The work crew did a fine job and was respectful of my furniture."
"We had been contemplating new garage doors, a structural fix for the garage, new front window, sliding patio door, new entry door and basement windows on our home for a long time. When we called OHi, Jim came out quickly and reviewed the project with us and detailed options. Everything sounded great and we gave the go-ahead. Ben was our project manager and was kind, timely and efficient throughout the process. There were a variety of unexpected challenges in our home along the way, but the OHi team quickly came up with solutions and professionally completed the work. The workmanship was excellent and the project was completed without a hitch. We love the improvements and smile whenever we pull into our driveway. Thanks OHi for a great job! We loved working with a friendly, professional, local business!"
"I worked with OHi to remodel my master bathroom. Jeff K. was extremely easy to work with. At the time I was 9 months pregnant and he did everything he could to finish the project ASAP. I greatly appreciated all of his efforts to ensure it was done correctly and on time. I truly cannot stress enough how happy we are with our finished bathroom and would highly recommend OHi to anyone that has remodeling needs!"
"Redo of a guest bathroom, floor tile, tub surround tile, and new quartz vanity countertop. Professional and very helpful design suggestions. Understood our budget and didn’t push for higher priced items work was completed in communicated timeframe. Great workmanship. We are thrilled with the results."
"The bathroom work was done by Kamil. He was very professional, knowledgeable, and especially detailed oriented. We are extremely pleased with this work. John Kautz was our main contact at OHi and Cheryl was also very helpful during the entire remodeling project. They answered all questions in a timely manner by phone or email. John's input in the selection of tile was great. He was available at the OHi showroom and he also brought samples to the house. The bathroom remodel was completed on budget and by deadline. We will continue to use OHi for any remodeling project in the future and would recommend OHi."
"We contacted OHi at the recommendation of a friend who had completed a master bedroom/bath remodel when we began to determine what was possible with the outdated kitchen and inefficient floorplan of the house we purchased 3 years ago. We didn't really know where to begin so Mary Aubry and another associate came out to take a look at the house and give us some options for our space and budget. We talked through a couple of alternatives for floor plans and then began planning. Unlike a lot of clients, we did not come in with a Pinterest board or Houzz account with ideas of what we liked/disliked. We knew we didn't like what we currently had "going on," and knew we weren't looking for a "vanilla" remodel because we plan to live in our house indefinitely. Teri designed our kitchen - she provided several options based on what she observed we may like based on the look and feel of our house. We felt confident, never overwhelmed, through each decision in the design phase. During demolition and construction, we had very few hiccups (e.g. we wound up needing to hire movers to put everything and our piano in the garage for refinishing the floor), but I know that's to be expected. I have several friends and colleagues who have been undertaking remodeling projects at the same time and the communication, professionalism, and timeliness of the OHi is unparalleled. Their use of in-house professionals, as opposed to subcontractors, to complete the work allowed the project to flow quickly and predictably. Teri, Mary, and Jeff were extremely responsive to all communication and concerns. The final product is absolutely beautiful. Our friends and family are obsessed, particularly, with the hand-painted tile backsplash that goes to the ceiling along the back wall of our kitchen, where our hood and range are located. We changed the footprint of some rooms, eliminated an over-exuberant number of sliding doors (as well as two front doors) in favor of windows. I am happy every day to come home to our house with the cheery yellow front door - something Teri was clearly excited to recommend knowing my love for the color. A yellow door isn't for everyone, but it goes perfectly with the blue-gray exterior of our home. Our house is now a perfect place to live on a daily basis, as well as entertain. We could not be happier with the end result and will enthusiastically reach out to OHi for future projects. We recommend them, without reservation, to anyone who is looking for high-quality work."
"I have used OHi for flooring of all types. They are very efficient in getting the product, and pricing is fair. OHi has a wonderful selection, and all types of quality. I will continue to work with them in the future."
"My experience with OHi was beyond my expectations. I had a vision of how I wanted my main floor living to be and it was all that and more. The project was large and very disruptive to our life but my OHi design team made it as seamless as possible. The products were high quality and any issues were addressed in a timely manner. I have recommended OHi to friends and will definitely consider them for any future projects."
"We have had a wonderful experience with Mary, Jeff and their team The selections for kitchen and floors to include living and dining are beautiful OHi is so responsive when needed and excellent at the jobs they do We are looking forward to our next projects that will begin soon"
"Everyone who helped us were wonderful. We appreciated the help with the ideas and suggestions for our project and were very happy with the results. Tammy and Sarah were very helpful and great to work with. We are also happy with the pace of the project and being informed of the plans of when people would be here. Thank you Jeff. I have referred people to OHi already"
"OHi did a wonderful job of fixing our master shower. It was a remodel gone bad type of project, but John came to our house and assured us that he could fix the problems and make it look fantastic- which he did. Camille did a great tile job and it looks beautiful!! The OHi staff couldn’t be any nicer! We are extremely pleased with the project and highly recommend OHi!!"
"I have used OHi several times over the last few years. They were excellent! John Kautz personally supervised my kitchen flooring renovation from planning to finish which required removing glazed tiles from the entry hall as well as asphalt tile in the kitchen and replacing them with modern porcelain tile unifying the entire area. OHi‘s crew of workmen were courteous, conscientious, punctual and tidy. At a later date OHi carpeted my expansive basement area turning it into a model recreation area. I was totally pleased with their workmanship. I recommend asking for John Kautz. John is knowledgeable and will assist you in every aspect of your project."
“Working with the team at OHi was a pleasure. We did a complete kitchen gut and re-model. Teri and Mary helped us with all the selections and Jeff did a great job managing the construction. The tradespeople used on the job did a great job and were wonderful to work with. They were able to keep us within budget and they kept the project moving with out delays. I have and will recommend OHi in the future.”
"A great job by OHi on our new back door. They were quick, efficient, and it looks great! Tommy and Chris are the best! Thank you!"
"From the moment we walked into OHi's showroom and met with John & Kim, we knew we wanted to work with them! They understood the vision we had for our house and they made all my HGTV dreams (& more) come true within our budget! I stand in my kitchen and look at the open floor plan they were able to give us and I am in awe that is this our Forever Home! They are a wonderful FAMILY company to work with and because of being family owned we knew that we could trust them with our huge project! They kept on budget, on time, and the workmanship they provided is perfection! I will also add that when issues did come up (as they always do with any project) they were on it right away and did everything they could to fix the issues, which we valued so much. I would highly recommend them to my family and my friends! We loved working with them and love our forever home!"
"We contracted with OHi to completely renovate two bathrooms based on referrals from 3 different friends who recently used them. The whole process went extremely well and we couldn't be more pleased with the end result. Our sales lead ,John Kautz, and our designer, Dove Brown, worked closely with us to develop a plan that met our desires and budget. The project finished exactly on budget. The project manager, Jeff Kolota, and the large team of tradesman were wonderful to work with. Jeff gave me a project plan the first day and stuck to it throughout the project. He alerted me every night when to expect the crew to arrive the next day which was very helpful.The project was completed on schedule, even though the work occurred during the record breaking cold! We were very impressed with all of the staff, too many to name, but all were excellent. They worked closely with me throughout the project and went the extra mile to make sure everything met our expectations. Most impressive was how well they coordinated with each other. It was clear they enjoyed working for OHi and each other. It made a huge difference. Based on our experiences, and those of our friends who previously used them, we would highly recommend OHi."
"Our carpeting was quite old and matted. As we are getting older, our biggest concern was moving all the furniture out and getting new carpet. John came in measured and assured us they would take care of it. We went to the showroom in Elk Grove and were amazed at the displays and ideas for the rest of the house. We selected carpet, it was delivered, installed on time and was completed without damage to the furniture or walls. The guys were friendly and did a great job. After seeing the displays I think we’ll have them remodel the main bath next. Great job guys!"
"I called OHi for a bathroom remodel. John was great and helpful throughout the entire process. The work was completed in a timely manner, which was important as this was the only bathroom in the house. Crews were on time. And I'm happy with the finished bathroom!"
"From start to finish OHi was a pleasure to work with. From the first meeting with John and Teri to the last walk through everyone was fantastic. They listened to all of our concerns and were able to address everything during the planning process. Once the work started Jeff was great. He was able to handle all of our last minute changes without any issue. The workmanship and trade craft is second to none. Overall we had an amazing experience and plan to work with OHi for all of our future remodels. We cannot wait to get started on our next project!"
"Would highly recommend! The OHi team was very accommodating and helpful from the design team to our project manager and his team. Since we only have one bathroom this was a challenge for us all, we were lucky to have a toilet and the crew knew we were anxious to have our bathroom back. Excellent communication daily, any issues we had were addressed immediately. We couldn't be happier with our new bathroom! The tile work is perfect and all the work was great. The team really paid attention to details. We absolutely love the new window!! Thank you OHi!"
"John and his team did a fabulous job on my bathroom remodel. They had great ideas. They were neat, clean and a pleasure to work with. Would recommend them in the future."
"We contacted OHi, John came to our home to see the kitchen and bathroom that we wanted to remodel and followed up with an estimate within a few weeks. John was very attentive to our needs and assured us that they would do just what we wanted and do it nice! We started the project and worked closely the next several months with Cheryl (she's just an amazing lady!) setting up all the necessary appointments to pick out the granite and tile and materials needed. Every worker that OHi sent to our home was pleasant and polite. They cleaned up each time they finished (at the end of each day). As the project went on things ran smooth and better than ever expected. My kitchen and bathroom are both completely finished and look amazingly beautiful. I would highly recommend OHiI to our friends and family. They are a first class business and have some amazing people there to work with like Cheryl and John."
"If you want personal attention to detail and great results this is your company. John zeroed in on our wants and added creative ideas we never thought of. Finished product amazing!"
"Great company, beautiful showroom, wonderful sales person and expert craftsmen. They protected my floor with blankets, demoed the old counter tops and sink. the men installed the beautiful quartz counters and sink, did all the plumbing, matched the colored caulking beautifully and were out of the house in one day, They even swept our driveway. We ordered the battery operated faucet and to my amazement we have not needed to change the batteries for a year."
"My husband and I wanted to add a backsplash to our kitchen. Some friends recommended OHi. When we visited the showroom, Tammy showed us samples that might work based on photographs of our kitchen that we showed her. She even came to our home with a number of samples to help us narrow down our choices and give suggestions. This helped us save time as well as make a choice we are happy with (glass tiles). Within the timeframe that Tammy gave us, we received notice that our materials were ready. Several days later, David arrived as scheduled with everything he needed to install the backsplash. David worked in a painstaking manner. He was meticulous. After almost 12 hours (big kitchen), David completed the work and cleaned up everything. He made sure to wipe off any grout that wasn’t where it was supposed to be. Tammi stopped by to check the work. My husband and I appreciate Tammy’s and David’s dedication to quality workmanship and service. We are really happy with how our kitchen looks! We are so happy with OHi that we have recently contracted with them to install wood flooring on our entire first floor. Again, Tammy was very helpful in making suggestions. Before we made our final decision, Tammi had the installer come over to take measurements so we could get an accurate estimate of the cost. That was a big help. I should add that, although OHi is not the cheapest remodeling company out there, the prices seem reasonable. In addition, OHi offers high-quality materials than we have seen elsewhere. OHi is now our go-to place for home remodeling."
"OHi was very easy to work with. They had great ideas and were always available. Since we both work, they were flexible in meeting with us! We love our new kitchen and couldn't be happier!"
"My experience with OHi was excellent. They gave me 2 new bathrooms and new carpet and new blinds. I am so happy with everything. They had many other projects going on but I always felt they cared about mine. John Kautz is one of the nicest people I have ever met and he helped me choose everything. It has been 2 years since everything was done and I am still so happy."
"OHi sent me a postcard and I attended a kitchen remodel seminar at their showroom in Elk Grove Village, IL. I had attended several other companies seminars in the past but felt right at home at OHi. I contracted with them to remodel my kitchen and install engineered hardwood floors throughout my entire house, and I could not have been more pleased. The sales person, the designer (Teri) and the project manager (Jeff) held my hand every step of the way and helped me select the cabinets, finishes and everything. When the appliances were delivered the project manager was right by my side the entire time they were being installed. Everything fit perfectly. I was so pleased with their work, I hired them again to remodel my bathroom. You cannot go wrong with this company. I highly recommend them."
"We are thrilled with our new kitchen by OHi. They came highly recommended by my daughter after they did their master bedroom suite. John, Teri, Ben, and Brian were extremely helpful and professional. Teri's suggestions on improving the footprint of the new cabinets, plus adding helpful features greatly enhanced my new kitchen. Ben, our project manager, was prompt, efficient, knowledgeable, and available. Brian and the others who worked on our kitchen were reliable and friendly. I had trust in this company, and I couldn't be happier with my fabulous new kitchen. It sparkles from floor to ceiling....and it is all new!"
"John Kautz has proven to be an excellent source, over many years in the past, to take on remodeling and redecorating projects that we wanted to achieve……..He and his company have always performed at the highest level of competence and they have consistently been very fair in pricing......John has always been on the spot to answer any questions or concerns, before....during or after a project was underway..... To me, no better recommendation can come than a recommendation from a repeat client and we have been repeat clients for more than 30 years."
"When we decided to remodel our master bath and closet, we went with OHi because several of our friends had been happy with their work. It was a perfect fit for us. Designers came over to see the space, we gave them our ideas and then they added theirs that improved the concept perfectly. Then we went to the showroom and other showrooms with the designers and picked out tiles, flooring, fixtures, cabinets, etc.. Everything we needed to get the project going. Tammy and Dove were great at colors and concepts. OHI didn't start until it was all in to save time once they started the demolition. Our project manager, Ben was fantastic. He kept me informed on what workmen would be coming each day and what would be happening. We left town and he was at the house in the morning to let the workmen in and in the afternoon to lock up. He was constantly here checking on the workmanship and making sure that everything was right. No matter what I wanted, Ben said it would be no problem and in the end, everything was done to our satisfaction. Workmen showed up on time, always cleaned up at the end of the day and were polite and professional. Our satisfaction can only be summed up when the other morning, my husband walked out of the bathroom and said, " this is the perfect room. Even more than I envisioned."
"We had OHi renovate our basement and are thrilled with their work. John and his team were great to work with. They always were there on time and had great ideas. Teri helped us with the design--and we love everything! She had great suggestions and really guided us through the process. Jeff K was our project manager and always kept us updated with a text telling us who would be there the next day and what time. He was always available if we had questions. All the workers who came were professional and friendly. This has been a wonderful experience for us. My basement now makes me happy!"
"I worked with Mary at Ohi on flooring and painting for my living room, carpeting and painting for my master bedroom and a complete remodel of my master bathroom. Mary was wonderful to work with--great suggestions on color and style, superb follow up and always available if I had questions. I would use Ohi for all my home remodeling projects."
"We used OHI to renovate our upstairs full bath. The design team (Mary & Sarah) was a dream to work with. The project manager (Jeff K.) kept us completely informed throughout the process. The entire team, including the demolition and trades, were very professional. I was extremely pleased with the results, and we enjoy using our beautiful new bathroom! We would definitely recommend OHI for your home improvement projects."
"I chose to work with OHI because they are a third generation, family-run business. Renovated my loft in the west loop, limited floor space and closets. My designer, Teri, provided excellent guidance on the best use of the space I had. Took me a while to pick my finishes and flooring, however Teri was patient yet consistent in her support. John and his entire team continue to make me feel part of the family!"
"Working with John, Sarah and the whole team was fantastic. Sarah listened to what I wanted and stayed within my budget. My new kitchen is exactly what I wanted!! Great job! HIGHLY recommend OHi!!"
"OHi replaced 15 interior doors which included a fire-rated door to the garage. We could not be happier with the quality of their work. All jams, trim, hardware and handles were professionally installed. Jeff was always prompt to answer our messages and let us know timelines. Both carpenters, Tom and Chris, did an expert job and were sociable and courteous. We were comfortable having them work in our home. We want to thank Tammy at the office, too, for answering all my questions and for her patience. This old house is a lot brighter because of our new doors. Thanks, OHi!"
"I would highly recommend OHi for any remodeling project! They were terrific people to work with from start to finish! Their showroom is fantastic and their staff is friendly and helpful. From the beginning, the design team of Teri and John set the bar high for excellence. Project Manager Jeff G. and his fantastic team continued that tone of excellence through the end of the project. The entire house project went smoothly -- everyone was always on time, left the place clean and they were all SO nice!! Jeff always let me know who was coming the next day, what was going to be done and was always available to answer questions or stop by for a site visit. We LOVE how everything turned out - it's like a new house. We had never done a remodeling project on this scale and I was dreading it, but they made it a great experience with their team of professional, creative, competent and nice people. We can't say thank you enough!!"
"We couldn't be happier with OHi and the renovation work they completed on our house. From the initial consultation and design stage to the project management work, their entire team provided top-quality recommendations and work. In addition to a major kitchen remodel including removing 2 walls, they touched something in every room of the house. They are extremely nice, ethical, knowledgeable, professional, clean, and quick. We got the feeling as though they treated us like they would have treated their own family. We highly recommend OHi to everyone."
