Wood Rot Repair & Replacement in Great Lakes, Illinois

Rotted wood in Great Lakes is caused by a species of fungus, either stemming from wet rot or dry rot.

    in Green Oaks, IL

  • 5★★★★★ - "Mario and his entire crew were so professional. Mario was very concerned about explaining his services and making sure that I was happy with every single step they took. From the moment he gave me a quote (which was super quick), it was very obvious to me that he took the utmost pride in his work AND in the work of his painters. They all truly are a team. I could tell that they were not a bunch of individuals just doing a job. They worked together, and not in a hurry (but finished the entire job in a timely manner) and they were friendly with one another and friendly to me. I highly recommend Mars Painting. Thank you, Mario and crew!"

  • 5★★★★★ - "I asked Mario to quote removing the "popcorn" ceiling from our living room and to paint the interior of the rest of our home. He arrived exactly on time and gave me an estimate on the spot. In the end we hired him only to do the ceiling work (we decided to do the painting ourselves). Mario and his crew did an amazing job. Again they arrived on time, were very respectful of our home and cleaned up thoroughly when they were finished. We are so happy with the end result that we have decided to go ahead and hire them to do the interior painting after all. Looking forward to working with him again. I would (and have) recommend him to anyone."
