Actual customer reviews for projects: Install Concrete Patios / Walks and Steps

Armor Materials installed a concrete walkway at a commercial properly I own. I was pleasantly surprised...a company that actually pays attention to details. They took the time to discuss multiple options and made sure I thoroughly understood the whole process-both what would be used and why. They were professional, on time; the job was done quickly, and they did a great job cleaning up. I received a great price, an excellent job, and some unexpected education. Then even followed up to make sure I was happy with the job and their performance. Altogether, I was both satisfied and impressed. I have plans to use them on another job soon and recommend them without reservation. Home Advisor Review
Excellent customer service that almost outshines the good work they did. I would definitely recommend this company to others. Home Advisor Review
Armor Materials replaced the concrete path alongside my house. It was cracked and draining rain into the basement. They were professional from the start, responding to my email inquiry the same day, and coming to measure and providing a quote within a couple of days. They arrived and set to work, every efficiently, even dealing with a cranky neighbor who would not move her car from in front of my house to allow the concrete delivery truck to park. Start to finish was around five hours, and the finish on the new path is just amazing, its solid and very neat, and will easily withstand Chicago winters for many years to come. I have already asked them to quote for another project, and will be recommending them to anyone needing work on their house. They are a very professional and friendly team, and I cannot recommend them highly enough. I have had seven different contractors working on my house this year and these guys are the best!!

Very professional. Home Advisor Review
Armor Materials did a wonderful job with our concrete patio project. They were very timely, professional and extremely conscientious about communicating with me. They were diligent about the quality of work performed and that it was being completed to our satisfaction. They also readily answered any of our questions and provided additional solutions/recommendations that will assist us in properly taking care of our new concrete. Tammie and Michelle were a pleasure to work with and so was their staff. We highly recommend them to others! We look forward to enjoying our patio space for many years to come. Home Advisor Review
