E.D. Enterprises Testimonials


E. D. Enterprises, Inc., has been serving the North Shore area of Chicago, Illinois since 1980 with the highest level of customer satisfaction possible. Every experience, with each customer, family and employee, has lent itself to whom we have become as a company. We remain deeply appreciative for those experiences and relationships. Our testimonials show the high level of service we offer our clients.

“Ed, EJ and their crew provided superb service in remodeling our kitchen. They were on time both daily and with respect to project completion. They clearly communicated their plans and any extras, and there were no surprises about timing or cost. The quality of the work was exceptional; they worked within the constraints of an older home and found creative solutions to unexpected discoveries. Communication was excellent throughout, in our first language. They kept the rest of the home clean and tidy, using zippered enclosures to permit access through the work area when necessary. They even dealt with our raucous dog with aplomb!”

“I have been in the design space planning business with a focus on kitchens and baths for more than 25 years. I recently relocated to Florida and I write to now to express how grateful I am for having had the opportunity to work with E.D. Enterprises for all these years. My admiration, trust and respect for the organization and employees have only grown over time. Their professional approach to every project is unparalled in a business that has its fair share of people who – how shall I put it – can’t “compete.’ I always could count on their attention to detail, cost consciousness, timeliness and the ability to problem solve no matter what difficulty was encountered. And let’s not forget clean! In short, no matter how high the bar was set they exceeded expectations. My own business flourished I believe because I worked together with E.D. Enterprises, to the point where I would only take a project when I knew they would be involved. I am honored to have some of our shared projects featured online. I offer my best to Debbie, Tom, E.J., Dave and the rest of the E. D. Enterprises team. They are like extended family.”

Pam S., Interior Designer – Libertyville, IL

“E.D. Enterprises was recommended to us by our Glenview designer in 1988 when we were completely redoing the kitchen in the house we had just purchased. We were so delighted with their professionalism, attention to detail, thoroughness, and resourcefulness in that first project that, over the years, we have called upon them for nine more major projects: powder room, family room, main floor bathroom, kitchen (again in 2005), mudroom, basement office, basement laundry/craft room; and as recently as 2015 our second floor and our basement powder room. Needless to say, we have been more than satisfied with their work on every single one of the projects they have done. Our responsibility was to have all the new cabinetry in our garage before the work began; that way there were no delays in getting the job done on time. If they tell you it will take ten days, it will be ten days (unless you decide to add something). The workmen are friendly and trustworthy. They are problem solvers, too. There was a two inch difference in the ceiling height on the existing wall where bookcases were placed; the carpenter’s creativity made it completely unnoticeable. We had no concerns leaving them alone in the house. They want you to be satisfied with the job. We have no qualms about recommending them to anyone who wants a quality job done.”

Jim and Nancy – Lincolnwood, IL

“We had a major renovation of the kitchen that was angst free thanks to E.D.Enterprises and their outstanding sub-contractors. I found their suggestions and advice excellent, especially choice of designer. Tradesmen were always timely, respectful, helpful, cooperative and very clean and neat. They consistently went above and beyond. I had no security worries during the project, even while out of town. The schedule flowed along without delay, cabinets and appliances delivered in a timely manner. Their mantra may be “We want you to be happy” and they mean it. Craftsmanship and attention to detail is outstanding. Recently a tradesman from elsewhere was looking in the cabinets under the cooktop and remarked at what a beautiful job was done in there. I’m very happy with the finished product. E.D.Enterprises would be my first choice for any future projects.”

Joyce C. – Mt Prospect, IL

“E. D. Enterprises, Inc. Enterprises completely remodeled our kitchen while we vacationed in Southern California. Everything was removed down to the framing and re-built with additional plumbing, electric, and heating-ventilation. When we arrived home the work had been completed from the new tile floors to the new ceiling lighting fixtures, including a new appliance suite. The quality of the work was excellent, especially the fluted column trim around the cook-top which we love. It was also great that all the construction debris and dust had been cleaned up and the kitchen was ready to use. When we arrived home Ed met us and walked us through the new improvements and assured us that the job was fully warranted if anything needed adjustments. The only item that needed replacement was a faulty kitchen sink fixture. We are really pleased with our kitchen and the service from E. D. Enterprises, Inc.”

Jim and Linda – Arlington Height, IL

“In 2015, I finally had the time to renovate my kitchen and begin updating other parts of my home. After months of disappointing interviews with “highly recommended” contractors I met with E. D. Enterprises. At our introductory meeting Ed Sr. and Ed Jr. were prepared to discuss how we could move forward with my project. The suggestions and feedback they offered were excellent. During my renovation there were no surprises. I was always kept in the loop. The crews were highly professional, excellent at problem solving and, much like Ed Jr., maintained a “can do” attitude. Working with a family business, that maintains a steady group of craftsmen, certainly sets the gold standard for other contractors. The crew maintained a consistently high work ethic at the same time my five dogs were in the house! No easy task. The “Eds” regularly came to my home to check progress and were always available to answer questions. Communication with Debra, the office manager, was great and her consistently friendly manner contributed to my extremely positive experience with E. D. Enterprises.”

Diane R. – Glenview, IL

“There are many reasons why we chose, and will choose in the future, E.D. Enterprises to perform our work and two reasons stand out in particular: their complete remodeling of our kitchen met and exceeded every expectation and we immediately engaged them to remodel a bathroom. We were so confident that our previous experience would be matched that we agreed to have the extensive work done in our absence. E.D. Enterprises maintained ongoing contact with us during the project proving their ability to communicate effectively. Again, the craftsmanship, carpentry, and overall workmanship was excellent, exceeded our expectations, and gives us the confidence to select this firm again and again. Like the firm’s customers who I called for a reference before engaging E.D. Enterprises, I would be happy to talk to any prospective customer about my experience with this long-time, family managed, firm. They are quite unique.”

William H. – Wilmette, IL

“Within 5 minutes of meeting with the owners of this family-owned business we knew we made the right choice for our kitchen and 2 bathroom remodeling projects in our Glenview home. They treated our projects as if they were their own, meaning they came in on budget and on time, they neatly staged the new materials in our garage so that we had room to move around it, installed plastic walls to contain the dust, and cleaned up every night. We were so pleased with their work that we hired them again to remodel a kitchen and 3 bathrooms in our lake house in southern Wisconsin. We were so comfortable with and trusting of the team that we gave them the keys to the house and couldn’t wait to see the transformation when we visited on the weekends. We have more projects for them and look forward to hearing their suggestions. How would we sum up E.D. Enterprises? Trustworthy, highly-skilled professionals that provide great services.”

Mike L. – Glenview, IL

“My experience with E. D. Enterprises, Inc. has been nothing less then outstanding again and again. The founder of the company came to my house and said to me “you’re remodeling your house…this should be fun”. Unfortunately, he was then speaking to a very stressed out and frustrated homeowner who was in the midst of a construction nightmare. Ed and I spoke for a while, I liked what and who I heard. This man runs on old school principals and so does his company. Fast forward E. D. Enterprises rehabbed the entire first floor of our home. E. D. Enterprises delivers what is promised with great effort. They are excellent with time management of a project. Their workmanship is flawless. Ed’s son, Dave, lead our project. Dave, and his team, were so good at building the new and fixing the old I never wanted to see them go. Recently, we rehabbed the master bedroom and bath. Dave’s son, Chris, was on that project, same work ethic same results. Family owned and operated. From the front office to the final result they are operating at level tens. If you’re reading this you should know: E.D. Enterprises is the diamond in your contact list.”

Mary L. – Winnetka, IL

“E.D. Enterprises is the best, most expert cabinet contractor I have ever worked with across five remodels and two new home builds I have done. Because of their amazing work on my home remodel in 2001, in 2014, I required my new home builder to use E.D. Enterprises to install ALL of the cabinetry in my new custom home, which included a kitchen, bar, four bathrooms, family room and bedroom built-ins and the laundry room. Wonderfully, the same expert carpenter led BOTH of my home projects, a testament to E.D. associates’ long term commitment to the firm and their craftsmanship. The quality of their carpentry finish detail is unparalleled and they will even add hand-built custom accents to make every project polished and beautiful. Every step was well-planned, professionally executed, on time and exceeded my expectations for quality and cleanliness. As long as I live in the Chicagoland area, I will always use E.D. Enterprises for my carpentry and remodel projects.”

Kim F. – Lincoln Park, Chicago, IL

“Having worked with many architects and contractors in numerous home remodeling projects, I can confidently say that E. D. Enterprises, Inc. provides a first-class construction experience and a high quality finished product. In our extensive remodel, E. D.’s communication was always open and considerate; questions were promptly answered and issues were resolved without hesitation. It was a pleasure having their skilled, long- tenured employees in our home. From planning and budgeting through final completion, E.D. demonstrated professionalism and attention to detail. We wouldn’t think to recommend or use any other contractor.”

Robert S. – Lake Forest, IL

“My house was in desperate need for an overhaul renovation and these rooms were kitchen, two baths, family and laundry rooms. I felt very comfortable with Ed as well as his two installers – that is important when they are inside your house for months. During the renovation Ed was always easy to reach and frequently came by to provide oversight and discuss progress. The installers, Mark and Keith, were just awesome guys and very knowledgeable. They were on time every morning, cleaned up at the end of each day and worked diligently to insure a smooth project progression. They never made any assumptions and consulted with me on anything they were unsure of and made recommendations for things as they came up. Debra at the office is very helpful. Every call I made was returned quickly and any issues that came up were resolved quickly. All the rooms were completed and I couldn’t be happier. Minor problems are expected but what defines a truly professional company is they rectify those problems. E.D. Enterprises, Inc. earned their 5-stars. No questions asked and no matter how small and insignificant the issue was, they fixed it without question and without hesitation. I would absolutely use them again for any future projects.”

Deborah – Glenview, IL

“We are extremely happy that we made the decision to work with E. D. Enterprises, Inc.  The level of detail, planning, and care that Ed put into our renovation kept us on schedule and us at ease.  E. D. Enterprises, Inc.’ years of experience showed throughout the process and his carpenters’ skills show through the finished product.  They worked hard at keeping the dust out of the rest of the house and the working area clean.”
