What People Are Saying

  • "Rarely, do you find the word "Contractor" and "Honest, trustworthy, Professional and a Superb Craftsman" in the same sentence...however, Joe Karner is the real deal. When we decided to rehab our unit at Marina City- the task seemed overwhelming. But with Joe's help it went extremely smooth, on time and under budget. His expert detailing, professional craftsmanship and hard work, made our dream come true. Joe put his "all" into his work with the pride and perfection as if it was his own place he is working on. He kept us well informed of his progress and worked with all our inputs / requests. We highly recommend Joe for all your construction needs, as we will definitely use him in the future. Jim and Romayne." - Jim and Romayne

  • " Rita and I would like to acknowledge the terrific job that you did for us. In our business we have dealt with numerous general contractors and have had our share of disappoints... With you, however, it was a completely pleasant experience. We really thank you for your help in suggesting various options for renovation and also appreciate the very specific detail that you provided in covering the scope of work to be done. Joe, we just want you to know how pleased we are with your complete service. You actually exceeded our expectations in everyway - quality of work, time to complete, and final actual cost." - Ty and Rita Ingo

  • "I highly recommend Joe Karner for any renovation project. I have utilized Joe for several projects and continue to be impressed by his superior quality of work and unquestionable honesty and integrity. It is obvious that Joe is motivated by his dedication to the beautiful result of a job done correctly." - Ellen Chessick

  • "My husband and I have survived several home construction projects. The most recent project was the renovation of our condo in Marina Towers . This project was “a walk in the park” due to Joe Karner. He is terrific! Joe is prompt, helpful, easy to work with and stayed on budget!! Should we ever have another project, we would definitely call on Joe." Sheila and Phil Rock

  • "In 2008, I contracted with Joe Karner to completely remodel my one bedroom unit at Marina Towers . I had received price quotes from other contractors and felt that Joe Karner’s price was fair and reasonable. We agreed on a completion date and Joe was successful in completing the project within the time agreed upon. All work was performed to my satisfaction including plumbing, electrical, carpentry, painting and decorating. I felt comfortable with the fact that Joe Karner has previously remodeled many units in the building and was familiar with the original construction of the building. After completion of all work, I submitted a short punch list for items to be corrected and all items were completed within a very short period of time. I would strongly recommend Joe Karner to others based on his skill and professionalism and his responsiveness to all matters concerning my construction project." - Ron Campbell

  • " In 2007, I hired Joe Karner to completely gut and remodel my one-bedroom condo in Marina City. It turned out to be the best decision I could have made. My vision called for nearly everything “inside the paint” to be ripped out and rebuilt from scratch including: the kitchen (new layout/all new appliances), bathroom (completely reconfigured), new plumbing system, new electrical wiring, all new floors, new A/C system, new balcony doors and most of the internal walls. Joe provided me with a written proposal that spelled out in great detail the costs and timeline for completing this complex project.

    To say I was nervous about undertaking a project of this scale would be an understatement (having heard horror stories about contractors who fail to deliver on what they said they would do coupled with “surprises” and goodness knows what else could go wrong!). How did Joe Karner do on my condo project? Joe Karner exceeded my expectations in every way from day one. His proposal was "transparent" and priced in a way that was easy to understand and very fair. Throughout the entire three-month build-out project (during which I moved out) I was able to meet with Joe whenever I felt the need to do so. He returned phone calls promptly and treated me with respect whenever I asked for more details (which unfortunately for Joe was a lot!). He could not have been more accommodating and professional is his manner and demeanor. His honesty and straightforwardness greatly eased whatever reservations I had going into the project.

    Best of all, he stayed within my budget, met his own self-imposed deadline to the exact date he promised (literally!). As a result of his exceptional construction and design skills and expertise, Joe Karner created an incredibly beautiful new home for me that I will treasure for years to come (not to mention it improved the dollar value of the condo itself!). I would not hesitate to recommend Joe Karner to anyone who is looking to undertake a condo construction project (big or small). And especially for those individuals who reside in Marina City in Chicago. Joe is second to none. " - Joseph Milligan.
