After experiencing difficulty with another builder, Sitko handled my project professionally. Michael Fredman was easy to work with and attentive to my needs. Architect Ricardo Garcia drew up perfect plans and worked with the Park Ridge building department to execute the project. Jack Sitko has assembled a fantastic crew, who worked hard, and was meticulous in their craftmanship. My deck would survive a Midwest hurricane and it looks fantastic!

Description Of Work:
J Sitko demolished my existing front porch and stairs and replaced them.

Member Comments:
Sitko Construction is a fantastic company. Beginning with the first phone call to Mike, we have been thrilled with the service, work, and professionalism of this company. The front porch and stairs were in bad shape; the stairs were starting to crumble and with every rain water pooled around the bottom step, making it impossible to leave the house without wearing rubber boots. With family moving in for the summer, we needed them replaced -- and quickly. Jack, the owner, came out on a Thursday afternoon and by that night Mike had emailed with a quote. We signed a contract the following Monday. Roman and Jack did the work, arriving promptly each morning, keeping us updated on the work, and responding to all questions. They demolished the existing wood and concrete stairs, poured a new concrete slab (pitched away from the house!), and built a beautiful new wooden porch and stairs. Additionally, they built the porch so that a covered roof may be added at a later date -- so yes, we will be using J Sitko Construction again! The new porch is beautiful -- even the neighbors are commenting on how good it looks, as well as the attention to craftsmanship that Roman and Jack put into the railings and handles. We have already recommended J Sitko to several friends for work at their homes.

In the 20+ years we have lived here, we have never had such a positive rehab experience. Would recommend without reservation.

Member Comments:
Outstanding. The construction crew and architect work together, so the transition from plan to work site was seamless. They do lots of work in Chicago, so they understand the porch permit and construction inspection process very well. Mike Fredman responded to my calls and e-mails in a timely fashion, and all work was done as agreed. Jack, the foreman, responded to all calls promptly and resolved any issues right away. Everyone says how beautiful the porches look, and what a great value we got. Other companies were quoting us $85,000 - $100,000 for the same work. My only issue was with the City of Chicago. The city approved the plans (which were to code; we got the code and checked the plans against it), yet twice the inspectors found something they didn't like; even though Sitko was following the exact plans the city approved. Sitko made the corrections as required, and didn't try to charge extra. They kept the job site clean and safe. They communicated to the tenants, so people knew what was going on. They even did some extra work for us at a reasonable price. If you're a landlord, and need new porches, these are the guys for you!

Mike and his team from J.Sitko have worked for my building on a few separate jobs and have always done very high quality work for a fair price. My latest project was our back porch and stairs, they were in a terrible state of disrepair as well as being in violation of city codes. Mike arranged for an architect, city inspections, demolition and reconstruction of our exterior porch and backstairs. We are thrilled with the results. finally our stairs are safe and sturdy and meet all of the city's requirements (they also look GREAT)! The part I like best about using J. sitko is that I feel like I can trust them, and that's not easy to say these days.

Member Comments:
From start to finish Mike handled everything, he met with city inspectors and made EVERY arrangement. I have worked with J.Sitko on a few occasions- they show up on time and they do EVERYTHING they promise and they do it for the price they quoted, I've never had any surprises on the bill.

Their price was good compared to the other quotes we received. They also provide tuck pointing for us. The workers were very clean and the tuck pointing was done in 1 day.

Work complete date: July 2, 2012

Approximate Cost: $14,000.00

Description Of Work:
This was a four part job. We needed our front porch and stairs replaced and we chose a no-maintenance decking and wrought iron railings. We also replaced our balcony off the back of our house with no-maintenance decking and railings. We replaced our back door due to rotting around the seal and wanted a roof over the back door. The last piece was capping the wood around our French doors.

Member Comments:
We were very pleased with the work and price. When Jack came out, he only spent about 20 minutes looking at the different jobs and didn't ask hardly any questions. I didn't think I would actually get a quote. He responded within a week with the quote and it was reasonable compared to the other two quotes I received. He told me it would take 7-10 days to get the no-maintenance decking and they started within 14 days of signing the contract. They finished the three smaller jobs within 2-3 days. Very fast work. The front deck took longer due to them needing to order more decking. When I got the quote, I showed Jack and the other contractors what I wanted for railings. The others quoted much lower on the railings but said if I wanted more ornate railings the price would go up. Jack quoted based on what I wanted (ornate railings!! I showed everyone the same sample) and the price didn't change. He brought in a sub-contractor for the wrought iron railings who designed something custom and they are beautiful. I couldn't be more please with how the porch and railings look. The railings took 4 weeks longer to be put in but I wasn't surprised by the delay given that some of my neighbors waited months to get their wrought iron railings in. I would definitely use them again.

Member Comments:
Mike and Jack's crew really do excellent work. There were some minor "glitches" as to be expected in a job this size. Jack did not always pass along my requests to his crew, but any issues that resulted from miscommunications were quickly corrected. The deck itself was completed in April, but we had to wait until last week to complete the staining, due to the amount of rain we had in May. I highly recommend J. Sitko Construction. I interviewed at least 4 other construction companies and Mike and Jack were the most reasonably priced and also willing to work with me on how I wanted the deck designed.

Member Comments:
J. Sitko removed our (scary, old, dilapidated) back porch, had an architect design a new porch, and built the replacement. A class act all the way, J. Sitko was quick to give us an estimate, and stayed in touch, all through the design process, quickly adapting to a couple of changes we made along the way (cedar, not pine; a canopy to be installed over the back door). The workmen were excellent and efficient. They arrived on time each day, and put in a full day's worth of labor, in crafting our new back porch. The job site was kept very clean. The entire process went very, very well, and I would definitely recommend this company to anyone who needs porch or deck construction/replacement.

They tore down and removed an existing porch. Removed the old, concrete step at the base of the old porch. Then built a nice solid porch with iron railings. They did a good thorough job of clean-up each day, and at the project's completion .

Member Comments:
The front porch to my home was experiencing some deterioration issues due to the enclosed design of the base which retained humidity in spite of having several ventilation plugs along the sides. Once I had contacted J Sitko Construction things moved along quite quickly . . . . . much more so than I expected during peak building season. I was very happy with the speed of their response and the small lag-time until they were able to begin work. I knew that I wanted the lower portion of the new porch to be open with a lattice work covering, to allow air circulation under the porch, but otherwise I was unsure of appropriate porch materials and railing designs. However, they were of great help in explaining a few options and suggestions as far as materials. I didn't have a specific railing design in mind, so I told them about a couple of interesting designs that I had seen, and explained that I didn't personally like a lot of scrollwork in railing designs. I asked them to go ahead and choose a design with that in mind. I am very happy with the design they installed. If I was given a catalog of railing designs, I'm certain that this would have been one of my top choices. Based on my dealings with them so far, I would definitely be happy to recommend them.

Member Comments:
J.Sitko was very responsive when I asked for a bid. They came right out, with the GSJ architect, and listened carefully to what I wanted and quickly gave me a reasonable price reflecting that. We had some issues with the permitting (not their fault), but they came right out when the permit was finally approved. The guys worked quickly and got the job done amazingly fast. There were some minor issues that arose that we had not anticipated, and Jack (owner) took care of them immediately with no extra charge. Mike, the office manager, is very responsive and helpful with questions. Jack seems a very busy man and is hard to track down and schedule with, but Mike steps in and takes care of it. Overall very happy with the job and J.Sitko

Description Of Work:
J. Sitko Construction performed repairs on our condo building's decks after they were cited by the City for code violations. The 12-year-old building is 8-units, four stories. Each unit has a private, wooden deck. The stairway is interior. The decks were remediated, including new footers - not rebuilt.

Member Comments:
Our experience with J. Sitko Construction was excellent. If you are facing a similar deck violation situation, I don't know why you'd work with anyone else. We were initially impressed with their similar work in our neighborhood, and their knowledge of the City permit and violation remediation process. Sitko partnered with GSJ Design in their proposal. We were leery of choosing a construction firm without the opportunity to bid out the building plans. We decided to hire GSJ for the architectural and permitting work, but held off on the construction firm decision. When the plans came back, we bid them to a number of construction firms, but Sitko was by far the most economical and responsive. We also valued their close working relationship with GSJ, thinking it would limit finger pointing if the work failed to pass the city inspections.
Michael clearly wanted our business and was persistent, but not annoying, in his communication.
Work began soon after contract signing. It was estimated to take 2 weeks, but it took 3, maybe 3.5, mostly due to weather. The crew was punctual and worked every day the weather cooperated - even on Saturday. The site was totally cleaned when they finished.
Michael scheduled all of the follow up inspections with the City again, a process he was clearly familiar with. One of his colleagues met me for the final inspection. The inspector was clearly impressed with the work he said as much. He asked me what we paid and told me we had gotten a great deal. The inspector and the Sitko representative had met on other jobs, and we clearly benefited from this familiarity and espect for Sitko's work and reputation.
Overall, what could have been a nightmare situation was straightforward and efficiently handled. The decks look great, and while I was skeptical that anything was wrong with them to begin with, they certainly look more substantial and secure

Sitko removed an old dilapidated porch off the roof of our garage and replaced it with a new one. Working with them has been a great experience. We met in person perhaps three times (estimate, construction, post construction) and each time they were on time to the minute. Both Mike and Jack have been very responsive and answered all of my questions. Their pricing was more than fair (I got a couple of estimates that were higher by at least $1,000), and the quality of the construction is great. Our new deck is SOLID, and feels like it will last a long time.

The quality and look of the deck is outstanding! And the price was very fair compared to others.

Member Comments:
The Chicago Dept of Buildings wrote a violation against our deck for being against code. Several things were not up to code, so we chose to replace the deck entirely rather than repair it. Sitko provided us with timely estimates and even offered a small discount before signing the final contract. Our building has had a frustrating history with the DOB, but Sitko was patient with us and was understanding of our situation. They performed the work on schedule and without requiring much interaction from our condo association

Awesome. I am so happy every time I come home and see my deck. For years, I have been worried about the condition that it was in and the potential consequences. Bidding contractors would either estimate too high or pass on the job because they didn't want to deal with the City codes. However, not this company. I choose them because they have done so many decks in the city with flying colors. When I checked 15 of their 250 references, people were pleased with the company's quality of work, price and professionalism. They were great about value added service by not charging me for unexpected issues that came up during the construction. I was so impressed that from the plans to the permits, the department of buildings signed off on all the work with no corrections. In addition, I was concerned that getting the deck up to code meant that the deck would look less attractive. Actually, the deck looks so much better now and the new and old wood blend perfectly. And, it is also very sturdy and strong. This company was also great with the schedule, the job started and finished on time. Jack was very accommodating to my eye for details. A situation did occur when two crew members crossed the line of professionalism, Jack quickly responded and fixed the problem. I am so grateful for my repaired deck and their hard work.

Member Comments:
J.Sitko is a superb operation. I contacted them and got an appointment the next day. Jack Sitko was prompt, attentive and gave helpful advice after looking at the architect's plans. The bid was competitive, clear and prompt. The demolition and construction started on time and finished ahead of time. The City of Chicago inspection went perfectly. The clean up was well done. This was a rare good experience with a contractor and I recommend this company to all. Mike Fredman and Jack Sitko run a great company.

Description Of Work:
J. Sitko repaired a deck on our two story house, which included a 2nd story deck and then stairs from the first floor down to the ground level. The second story deck also held two AC units, which they had to disconnect, move, and then reconnect. Additionally, they helped us with repairing some concrete skim coating around the base of our house.

Member Comments:
The whole process went very well. They returned my call immediately and had the appropriate people come out to view the house and discuss the project and their recommendations. A day later we received an estimate/proposal by email, which they followed up on by phone as I received other bids. Once the job was awarded to them, they started within 48 hours and put in full days starting each day at 7am promptly and wrapped up the job within 7 days. The workman were very courteous and went above and beyond by tending to the little things (like patching siding that was missing from the footprint of the previous deck. The skim coating also went well in that they repaired areas that I didn't point out, but were in need of repair. They also did a great job cleaning up.

Member Comments:
Expediting of paper work was very fast. Work start took a bit to get started, but men worked through tough weather to get the job done. Final product is not perfect, but equal to what we paid for it. When adjustments needed to be made. Jack was very amenable. They also came back to check the work out and clean up when weather permitted.

Description Of Work:
We needed a complete front porch replacement. After getting three estimates for the work, we chose Sitko for fair price and customer service. Jacek and his crew removed the old porch, poured new footings, and built a new porch out of non-wood materials. We requested some finishing touches which Jacek did gladly. Negotiating terms of the job and payment was no hassle.

Member Comments:
Our wood porch could have been repaired again and repainted, but that would have postponed the inevitable: replacement. We wanted no-maintenance materials which we would not have to reseal and repaint regularly and would stand up to the elements. Jacek demonstrated that he was comfortable working with composites and other non-wood materials. He worked with us to find design solutions like wrapping the treated wood columns with artificial materials, finding just the right materials for the decking and steps, and matching siding around the porch with the existing house siding. We emailed him and partner Mike Fredman a photo of a porch design we liked, and Jacek matched it, with variations we agreed upon. When we requested proof of insurance, it came by return email. Overall, Jacek and Mike were pleasant and easy to reach by phone or email and responded to questions promptly. We are delighted with our new porch by Sitko and the experience with the company.

Member Comments:
E-mailed Mike Fredman for an estimate 6/11, received a response that evening and scheduled an appointment to obtain measurements 6/13. Jack came out and measured the area and said he would have an estimate by the end of the day. At about noon, I had an e-mail from Mike with the deck estimate. Called Mike to say we were going to go ahead, and he asked if they could come out on 6/16 to start work. I said, "Sure!" and they came out early Monday morning, demolished the existing deck in about an hour, and had the majority of the new deck done by 6pm. The debris from the old deck had already been cleared by the middle of the day. The next morning they came out to finish the job, and the deck was done by 2pm! I was pretty impressed by their work, but the next day wasn't happy about how it looked below the deck (the concrete slab underneath and the walkout basement steps just looked ugly) and wanted to add lattice skirting to the bottom of the deck. I gave Mike a call, and he called Jack to get pricing on cedar lattice, and he said they could be out the next day to do the work. The lattice gave it just the right touch, and we are EXTREMELY excited to have our lovely deck just in time for the summer! Would highly recommend J. Sitko Construction and will definitely use them for our next remodeling project!!! Thanks Mike, Jack, and crew!!!!

Home Build Year: 1880

Description Of Work:
A three-story exterior rear wood porch with decks on an 1880s Wicker Park brownstone was in bad shape with wood rot, loosening floorboards, and outdated low handrails. We had not been sited by the City for violations, but wanted to be proactive in getting the porch safe and up to code. We felt simple repairs (even if we could find a contractor to make them) were not an option as permits must be pulled even for porch repairs. (City codes tightened incredibly on porches since the Wrightwood collapse that took so many lives.) We decided a complete tear down and rebuild was necessary.

Member Comments:
Overall, the job went great. The porch came down. The new porch went up. The roof was put on. Gutters and downspout were attached. Electrical work was upgraded with motion sensor lights. (An unexpected bonus.) At the final inspection we found a few items that needed to be addressed. They were taken care of in less than 48 hours. (Cigarette buts had been left in our side lot and they were picked up as well.) Sitko constructed a well built, structurally sound porch. The reveal for the metal brackets was slightly unsightly, but that's the new building code. The new porch will last for at least another 100 years. Sitko did a wonderful job. No complaints whatsoever. I would highly recommend J. Sitko Construction and will use them again.

The project went fine except for a snag with the unit owner's debating over the placement of the stairs. Jack, the owner, was very accommodating and helped us come up with a solution to make everyone happy - he did some extra work, at no additional charge, to make it happen (he moved a fence and cut a concrete stair for us). Note: they provided over 50 references. I checked several similar jobs in my neighborhood and everybody spoke very highly of Jack and the crew. Mike, the estimator and salesman, was very efficient and friendly.

Michael Fredman set up appointment for estimate with Jacek ("Jack") Sitko. Jack arrived on time and gave us a competitive bid. Received a written bid from Michael through email that evening. Michael followed up to discuss. After a few modifications, we accepted their bid. We couldn't be happier. Workers showed up on the dates and at the times we were told and worked very diligently. They were mindful about dust and cleaned up work area each evening. They worked out and completed all details for baseboard heat, masonry and wood trim to accommodate the new sliding glass doors. All work was skillfully completed. Although there was some miscommunication on the shape the deck, one call to Jack and he had his workers redo it the way we had intended. Their craftsmanship on the deck and door installation is excellent. Jack and Michael have an excellent system worked out. We have already used them a second time for another project and were again completely satisfied. Highly recommend.

Member Comments:
WE COULDN'T BE MORE HAPPY WITH THE OUTCOME! Spoke with Michael Fredman to set up the project with Jack. Jack quoted a really reasonable price, so combined with the recommendations from this site, we felt comfortable with the go-ahead. Work was a bit slow at spots when it started, but we realize there were a couple of complications that they had to work though (one being that a lot of the old brick busted apart when they tore down the old columns, so they had to order new limestone to make up for the deficiency). The porch, columns and overhang turned out beautifully though, and Jack and the team were very accommodating with including some architectural details included in the custom design. DEFINITELY

Scope of work included: Demolition on portion of existing deck on 3-flat condo building; build/rebuild portions of deck and reinforce other areas consistent with structural engineering report and city code.

Member Comments:
Bad weather led to some early delays, but all in we couldn't be happier. We engaged a structural engineer for a report and drawings and let Michael/Jack deal with city permitting and the work. We took a tremendous amount of comfort in the fact that a substantial portion of the payment would NOT be made until the city reexamined the deck AFTER the work and provided a clean evaluation (consistent with code). Workers were thoughtful and diligent. As an added bonus, we were thrilled with the thoroughness of the cleanup (wood, nails/screws, and general debris) given that we have kids who play in the back yard. Notably, we got quotes all over the place (included one group who told us the existing deck needed to be scrapped & we should start over, total cost $32,000 & another who quoted $16,000 for same scope of work that was done. Deck looks good and is now safe/within code. Highly recommend.
