FR Review:
Despite, and possibly because of, Stowell's mix of general contracting for institutions and commercial properties as well as high-end residential remodels, clients credit the company with bringing high standards of quality to their home work. High-rise clients, in particular, say the company's knowledge of commercial procedures smooths the overall process. While residential clients appreciate Stowell's commercial expertise, however, they are most praiseworthy of its old-school carpentry skills and ability to faithfully replicate the original craftsmanship of an Astor Street townhouse.

Sam Stowell, grandson of the founder who established the company in 1912, agrees that the demands of installing sensitive hospital equipment have impact on the company's exacting standards in home remodeling. Clients say the Stowell crews are highly competent and always attentive to their concerns. They especially appreciate their opening experience, they tell us, in which they talk one-on-one with Sam Stowell about what they envision. A vehicle that has roots in commercial work, Stowell's "Exceptional Expectations" program, they say, leads to frank and easy communication throughout the remodeling process. From the start, clients tell us, Stowell tailors work to their expectations and also comforts them with regular updates all along the way.

While this firm may not occupy the very highest rung on Chicago's ladder of top-tier remodeling contractors, references say it belongs in the company of the best.

Representative Client Comments:
