Addition & Renovation
The final product Marc left us with is wonderful. Along the way we had a few issues and Marc always took care of them with speed and professionalism. I love my new room, my new kitchen and all of our new windows. I mentioned we had a large project, Marc literally tore off our roof and built a new one. We could not be any happier with the results. Anyone would be lucky to have Marc and his crew in their Home.

Tenant Improvement Testimonial
We have hired Marc Taft LLC on three occasions. Marc and his crew rehabbed a kitchen and bath in a Lombard condo unit for us. The job was exceptional. He worked very well with the condo management to ensure their concerns were satisfied and common areas were kept clean. My expectations were high. I wanted the job to be done quickly so that we could list the property as soon as possible. The rehab looks great and rented immediately upon completion. I also wanted Marc to inspect the property since it had been a foreclosure. He was able to determine the condition of the property and made minor recommendations. Of course, I also wanted the project to look great upon completion. All the pieces of this project came together beautifully. Marc’s choice of granite counter top complemented our cabinets.
We again hired Marc several months later. I thought we needed a new sliding glass door. Since the door would be several thousand dollars, I was not thrilled but felt it needed to be done. The track of the door was worn to the extent that the door was nearly impossible to open. Additionally, the lock had been stripped and did not close properly. I consulted with Marc. He visited the property and found the best quality/cost option for us. However, he also suggested repairing the track and replacing the lock which would only cost a quarter of what the replacement would have been. We opted to repair what we have. Nearly a year later it is still working fine. I am so grateful that Marc suggested the repair to save us money. He conducted himself in an extremely honest manner and I trust his ability to discern between what needs to be replaced vs. repaired.
Lastly, our Schaumburg tenant mentioned a problem in the tub. To be honest, I really didn’t understand what she telling me. However, I called up Marc and asked that he visit the property. Since Marc knew that water damage can lead to expensive repairs as well as health concerns he wasted no time in getting there. Water was getting behind the shower/tub surround causing the floor of the tub to feel, “squishy.” Marc found a surround replacement that would be virtually maintenance free. This option is perfect for a landlord.
Marc’s men removed the old surround and found uneven tile on the walls. The job just got a lot bigger. He needed to have the tile and drywall taken down and new drywall hung. He explained the job and provided pictures so I could approve the additional work. Since this rental unit only had one bathroom, my concern was more geared to how quickly it could be done. I did not want my tenant inconvenienced any more than necessary. Marc and team worked extremely hard to minimize the time this job took. They really moved Heaven and Earth to get this done and it looks fabulous. My tenant was thrilled when she came home from work to find a beautiful and clean new bathroom.
In closing, I would highly recommend Marc Taft LLC for any type of home building, remodeling, and repair. I find Marc to be above all honest. Marc’s suggestions for particular products demonstrate good taste coupled with appropriateness for the type of property it is going into. Additional benefits of hiring Marc include his knowledge of products, his commitment to a timely completion, his respect for keeping the project safe and turning the keys over only after the property is meticulously cleaned, and his watchful eye to keep costs extremely reasonable.
Thanks Marc for all your hard work!
