S&D was called to remove leak-damaged drywall from the chimney area to dry out and find the source of a roof leak for a residential homeowner.
"Jesus was the demo guy today and we wanted to tell you how GREAT he was. He was efficient, very respectful, hard worker, very clean as he worked to remove drywall and then also when he left, and best of all, he found and removed the ant colony that was the size of a 16" softball! We have been complaining about ants for a very long time and never seemed to get rid of them, until hopefully now. Thank you again for helping us get this project started."

S&D performed two jobs for Ms. Lococo: First job - her front door had a limestone sill that the door sat on and it was deteriorated. S&D replaced it entirely and sealed. Second job - she has a beautiful deck she could not use because animals were continually gaining access under the deck. S&D installed a custom metal deck skirt to keep the animals out.
"Both jobs that were done for us were perfect. I wanted to thank you for a beautiful job. The animals are still attempting to access under the deck, but no success so far. Thanks for coming up with a great plan!"

S&D was called in halfway through an already-started home remodeling project to assist in fixing and completing the work that was poorly done by a previous contractor. They hid plumbing, electrical and gas issues in the walls, left open holes to the exterior behind a cabinet and botched a lot of work done already. S&D had to tear it all down and start fresh:
I just want to express to you my high satisfaction to your team on my home remodel! Your crew was friendly, highly skilled and innovative. I was in the elevator industry for 35 years and know how contractors approach to clients mean everything! I was in such peril with an unethical contractor and you were able to step in. There were some unknowns along the way, but your team addressed them, fairly billed me and my house is beautiful! Your company name has already been spread to many friends. Your company is on my speed dial and I couldn't be happier! Thank you!!"

"I really appreciate the professional service and reasonable cost to clean my dryer vent. As it turns out, the duct disconnected from the dryer at some point in time and the dryer lint was spraying into the wall and attic. The service team did not charge extra to add a new duct to the roof. Thank you to your team!"

The property manager for the association called in to let S&D know what a beautiful job the crew was doing, and how wonderful the garage looks. She said they were all very nice employees.

S&D was called to schedule an appointment for a few plumbing issues in a residential home:
"Just wanted to thank you for the great service you guys provide. I believe it was Juan that was here yesterday and he really did an outstanding job. Before he buttoned up each little plumbing fix, he came and got me to show me the fix and made sure it looked okay. He really was great, and everything he did looked really good. Please pass that on to him. I know we will have a few other fixes around the home, like electrical stuff; I will definitely be calling you for those, as well as any other fixes that are out of my wheelhouse.

Just wanted to pass this on from one of the Board members at the Providence of Palatine. Great Job! I just walked through the garages. I am so impressed! They are METICULOUSLY cleaned. Great job.
Just wanted to thank you for sending out the gentleman that replaced our coach light and the sensor. So pleased to have it looking so nice now and not with the top broken off, or the light on 24/7. We very much appreciate your work in seeing this being done for us in such a quick manner and not having any run around or hassle getting it taken care of. Thank you!
"Hi Steve & all
Thank you Steve.

"The work S&D completed was great. Steve (owner) had come out to check the work himself & all was good."
"Hi Steve, this thank you is long overdue. Thank you so much for the carpet cleaning done at my home a few weeks ago. He did a great job. So thank you again. . I will certainly keep you in mind for the future."
"Good afternoon! I just want to tell you about an experience I had with two of your employees, namely Chuck and Jose. I had purchased a bottle of remover from Ace and tried everything to open it. Fat chance. I got back in my car and as I was on my way back to Ace from where I had just come, I saw the S & D truck and made a quick turn where they were parked. I asked them if they could possibly help me get the cap off. They probably thought I was nuts but the funny thing is, it was on so tightly, that it took one of your men to hold the bottle and the other one to use a wrench on the cap and they STILL had difficulty getting it off! It finally came loose!!!!!!
"Your cleaning crew did an excellent job! They were even able to remove some stains that previous services left behind. You arrived when you said you would and the price was fair and competitive. What more could I ask for?"
"Thank you very much for the service this morning. Your technician showed up at 9am sharp. He is a credit to your firm. All business, yet with the customer in mind. He took time to invite my inspection at two points during the garage floor cleaning to explain the methodology of the operation and invited questions. And, as you pointed out during your initial evaluation of the floor, some things just ain't never coming out. True, but those pesky areas still look a lot better than they did before cleaning. Again, much thanks for your efforts and a better garage floor."
"S&D Prime Maintenance is always there for me when I need them. The company employs reliable and friendly, licensed experts who prioritize work ethic and customer service in equal parts with doing a job well, and doing it right. Both the licensed contractors as well as the administrative employees are knowledgeable and honest, utterly competent and capable. Their extensive know-how and ability to work efficiently and remain calm under pressure mitigates the stress of the problems they come out to solve.
"We just had all the windows in our house replaced by S&D Prime Maintenance and we couldn't possibly be happier. This was an incredibly daunting task for us until Steve Piraino, General Manager at S&D, came into the picture. After this, we knew that all of the confusing decisions about material and type and style and energy ratings were going to handled for us with our best interest in mind. Steve made numerous trips to our house, bringing along his window rep on several of them, to make sure that this job would be done right before they even started. And the quality showed in every detail. The installers, painters and laborers who did the work have obviously all been well- trained to keep the customer in mind at all times to minimize disruption and that was surely appreciated. In addition, Steve was on the job site nearly every day to make sure that any questions that we had were being addressed. We were so pleased with their work that we had them paint the entire second floor of our house and had the same experience with that job. We have never worked with a more pleasant and accommodating contractor, and would not hesitate to give S&D our highest recommendation to anyone looking to have any work done that has to do with maintenance on a house. Steve runs a first-class operation.
For more than four years we have relied on S&D for an extraordinary range of home improvements, scheduled maintenance and emergency repair service. The firm has been consistently reliable, responsive and creative in meeting our needs in a timely manner at the lowest possible cost. Their expert advise, preventive maintenance, superb project management and outstanding craftsmanship has already paid for itself several times over.
