Garage Addition – Fox Lake, IllinoisAustin Rohrer2023-04-28T01:05:29+00:00
Fox Lake, Illinois
Our team at Rohrer for Construction recently completed a garage addition project that provided the homeowners with a much-needed solution for storage and workspace. The new addition was designed to match the existing flat roof style and included beautiful trimwork above the garage that blended seamlessly with the rest of the home. To enhance the aesthetics of the garage, we also installed two elegant light sconces on the sides.
One of the most significant transformations that took place during the project was the update to the exterior of the home. The client was looking to modernize their home and transform the outdated brick into something more contemporary. To achieve this goal, we used stone veneer siding that added a touch of sophistication and elevated the home’s overall curb appeal. The end result was a stunning garage addition that met the client’s needs for storage, workspace, and modern style.
Value Behind Homeowners’ Decisions
Benefits of a Garage Addition:
A garage addition offers numerous benefits to homeowners, including increased storage space, a dedicated workspace, and protection for vehicles from the elements. In addition to these practical benefits, a garage addition can also increase the value of a home and provide extra living space that can be used for a variety of purposes. Whether it’s a small workshop, a playroom, or simply additional storage, a garage addition can be customized to meet the specific needs of each homeowner.
Benefits of Stone Veneer Siding:
Stone veneer siding is an increasingly popular option for homeowners looking to modernize their homes and increase curb appeal. Stone veneer is a thin layer of natural stone that is applied to the exterior of a home, creating the illusion of a full stone exterior. This option provides a cost-effective alternative to traditional stone masonry while still offering a natural and beautiful look. Stone veneer siding is also durable and low maintenance, making it a great choice for homeowners who want to enjoy the beauty of natural stone without the hassle of upkeep. Additionally, stone veneer siding can help increase the value of a home and provide long-lasting protection against the elements.
Adoph is a joy to work with. He offered advice and agreed to build the infrastructure for a deck that I was not competent to handle. I took the advice of his team to finish the TimberTech and rails myself and am delighted with the outcome. It took a lot more manpower and expertise from his crew to build the foundation than I expected so I have a much greater appreciation for the team.
Where do I start? We lived in our house for 9 years and finally pulled the trigger to finish our basement. After meeting with multiple contractors we landed with Rohrer For Construction! Best decision we could’ve made!! This team listened to everything we had envisioned and what we wanted to do. They provided professional feedback and let us know what was possible and what wasn’t. If there was something that wasn’t able to be done they provided another option that was similar.It’s never fun having people in your house doing work for an extended period of time but I can honestly say this wasn’t bad because we really got to know and enjoy the team that came in every day. They were very professional, on time, and the quality of work was great. They weren’t the cheapest quote we received nor were they the most expensive. It was extremely fair and worth every penny. They even came back 6 weeks after the project was completed to do some minor touch ups and did a little additional work such as hanging the TVs, floating shelves, and more.If you’re looking for a team that’s going to do great work, be precise, and bring your visions to reality I highly recommend this team here!!
I had stairs added onto my back deck, and I spoke with Adolph who was extremely friendly and came to my house to check it out the next day, when we got there he gave a fair price and the employees were actually able to get the job done the same day! I had so much trouble finding someone to complete such a simple job, but I am so glad I found Roher For Construction. Would 100% recommend!
A few years ago, we put a second story on our house. In the process we put an additional furnace and central air unit to accommodate the additional space. What we didn’t know was that the builder had in fact built the furnace into the wall. There were openings for access but they were very small. We were able to get the unit cleaned and maintained, but as time went on and the thought of potentially replacing the furnace neared, we realized this was going to be a problem. We literally could not remove the furnace from the space. We needed to address the issue before the furnace went out. We made some calls. The first two people said that they would not touch it. The third person said they needed to consult an engineer. Then Adolph Rohrer took a look. He was able to confidently assess the problem. He quickly got back to us with a reasonable solution to the problem. He then quickly got us on the schedule when it worked for our schedule. We are more than pleased with the work and are confident that when the furnace needs to be replaced, it will not be an issue.
I had a hard time finding someone to give me an estimate for our decking project. Adolph and Austin was very responsive and came out with a short notice. We decided to go with a budget friendly green treated deck which turned out great. Highly suggest.
Fantastic experience and amazingly trustworthy. I needed to remodel a house in Grayslake but I lived in another state. My main concern was finding a contractor who I could trust and that immediately resolved when I spoke to Adolph. He promptly prepared a quote that included remodeling the whole house, pushed back (good thing) on my aggressive timeline, and then completed the work on time and on budget, all while I was remote. I truly can’t say enough great things about Rohrer and they receive 5 star recommendation from me. For what it is worth I hardly ever write reviews but did so in the hope this may help someone like me who was looking for an honest contractor.
Rohrer Construction Is the best around! I needed my kitchen redone and they did an excellent job. I would 10/10 recommend these guys. Hard working Professionals that really listen to what you want done.
Adolf, Austin, and the crew truly did a marvelous job. I couldn't be more appreciative of the courteous professionalism they exemplified from beginning to end. It began with the planning stages of how is the family to function without access to certain day-to-day amenities and they went above and beyond to accommodate for us to make the least impact on our daily life. They offered me the best estimate and fixed the project almost a week before the agreed upon completion date. I would highly recommend this company to anyone and everyone who is looking for a refresh for their home
Being a first time home owner I purchased a house that needed a fair share of work. Adolph and his team really made the furnishing of the basement beautiful and seamless. Next step is the master bathroom. Thank you guys!
UPDATE:Austin contacted me and quickly and kindly addressed my concerns. A different painter came over to fix the painting issues. The other issues were taken care of as week. Austin showed me that they are willing to make sure that things are done correctly in the end. We both may have dropped the ball by not getting a final walkthrough. In the end my project is just what I wanted, although a bit frustrating, which happens in life.
I don’t know how they have so many good reviews. The person who put in our floor was great. The rest of our experience left LOT to be desired. The painters did a terrible job and did not paint all they were supposed to paint. Tried to get cash out of us to do a “premium” job. Did not use painters tape, primer or tarps. They dripped paint everywhere. My counters, kitchen table, staircase, new floor. Paint color not quite right. Left bags of garbage in the house which we didn’t know till a visitor’s dog got into it and dragged all over. Cleaned brushes in kitchen sink which I then had to scrub. There was damage to our kitchen countertop. Our doors still don’t have handles. Paint is peeling and chipping within a week. (We have no kids and no pet at the time) Cuts around light are terrible. Communication was horrid. Never knew if someone was showing up. Would go days without hearing anything. One time nearly a week. Damaged our new siding when putting in slider. Didn’t cut vent correctly and cannot put in vent cover cuz hole is too small and got paint all over the old one. So now we either live with this crap, go to court or pay someone else to fix this shoddy workmanship. They do not return my husband’s calls.
