At Krumwiede, we believe that longevity is one of the best indicators of a company’s record of customer satisfaction. In the years since our founding in 1953, we’ve watched countless home improvement companies come and go while we thrived by providing homeowners with top-quality products, expert installation services, and attentive customer care. As a third-generation, family-owned business located in Bensenville, Illinois, we operate based on a core set of values and demonstrate honesty and integrity in every interaction we have with the homeowners we serve throughout Northern Chicagoland.
We’re proud to say that our customer-first approach has produced exceptional results over the years, as evidenced by our A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau and the fact that repeat business remains our biggest source of revenue every year. It’s common for a homeowner to have us replace their roof and then be so happy with our work that they will have us install new siding on their home a few years later. We feel honored that these customers place such a high degree of trust in our company and want to have us perform all of the improvements they have in mind for their homes. We also provide homeowners with peace of mind because when they hire us to install their new windows or gutters, they know we’ll be here in the future to provide any assistance they require, whether it’s five, 10, or 20 years from now. With Krumwiede, you have a home improvement partner for life.

This is very important, since an estimate is just that. Many contractors will submit a "paper estimate", meaning they've written the estimate down on paper. The bill is the true amount owed and will almost always say "Invoice" or "Bill" at the top of the page. The bill should also list the date it was issued, the due date of payment, and a list of services rendered.
Though a standard question, it's important to ask. Most contractors will tell you how long they expect the job to take without you asking. If they don't volunteer that information, be sure to ask. It's also helpful to ask if that's a hard finish date, meaning that it's the definite finish date. If it's a soft finish date, it may be extended for any number of reasons.
This will be answered when you ask if all employees are licensed. The only way to obtain a legitimate tradesman's license is to be a legal or naturalized citizen of the US. The company may employ people in positions that don't require a license, however, so it's wise to inquire.
Some companies may require a 10% deposit, some may not require any. For larger projects, you'll almost always need to give a deposit, and it's good to ask how much the deposit will be before going forward with a project. The Bensenville contractor will know how much they need for a deposit when they've given you the estimate, so ask early.
