“1st job - We would like to thank you and your crew for doing a great job. You and your crew are very dependable and professional. The questions we had about the project were answered before and during the project.  We both were happy to know the price we were quoted for the job was what we had to pay (no hidden costs) when the job was done.

2nd job – Thanks again for doing another great job. Everything went smooth. Keep up the great work. Your employees are very good at what they do.”

Chuck J., Champaign, IL


“The steps are great! The porch gate is working better and I understand it may sag again over time. The back screen door closes completely. Chuck informed me each time something was done, so it could be checked out and this was appreciated very much. He did a nice job.”

Susan M., Champaign, IL


“We recently moved into a 20 year old, 2900 square feet home in southwest Champaign. Before first gas/electric bills were well above $500 - $600 a month! With all first gas/electric bills were well above $500 - $600 a month! With all the additional expenses of moving, this was too much to In searching for a solution, I called Illini Home Improvement. Kim came by on a Saturday to check our house over and give us an estimate. After checking temperature readings of the walls, doors, windows and ceilings, as well as looking over the crawlspace and attic areas, Kim gave me a very reasonable quote to coat the crawlspace walls and blow in additional insulation inour attic areas. Although there were no major weak spots discovered in his inspection, he advised that his treatments would significantly improve things and reduce our monthly gas/electric bill. I took him at his word and made arrangements for him to come back and service our home.

A few days later Kim showed up with his son and in the space of a morning they treated all the necessary areas in our home. During his work, Kim discovered a large opening in the main duct coming up from the furnace to the attic. Our attic was room temperature – in the dead of winter! He also found large areas in various attic spaces that were either not insulated or under insulated. For no extra cost he took care of all these issues.

The results have been tremendous. Our house feels warmer overall. I have even had to adjust the flue damper on the main duct, throttling back the amount of heated air it was pushing to the upstairs due to the upstairs being too warm! For the first time our new furnace has not had to struggle all day just to bring room temperature to a reasonably comfortable level. The floors are warmer and due to his treatment of the crawlspace, the cold-water faucet puts out mildly cool water instead of the frigid freezing water it used to dispense.

Now we can relax and enjoy our new home, knowing we are protected from the harsh weather and skyrocketing utility bills. Thanks, Kim and Illini Home Improvements!”

“Professional and courteous team. They took time to explain everything and were extra careful coming in and out. You have a good team of workers and we appreciate a job well done.”

Ben J., Urbana, IL


“Thank you so much for the great work you done insulating my home. Our power went out for 2 hours during the big snowstorm. In that time our heat only dropped to 66. Our neighbors had to leave their home because they dropped to 45 after only one hour. Later the power went out again for 6 hours and the heat only went down to 59. I don't know what we would have done if we had to get out and find some place to stay during the snow storm, the roads were terrible. I am just so glad we had that work done. Good work!”

Rachel Springer - Gifford, IL
