I hired Michael Menn 3 times. The first time he added a room to our house and completely renovated our kitchen. The second time he repaired our garage due to a fire. The third time he remolded our bedroom and an extra bedroom to create a master bedroom with a sitting area. He transformed our bathroom into a luxury master bathroom.
Michael is a true professional who listens to his customer. His cost estimates were reasonable and they closely matched the final cost of each project. Each project was completed on time and within budget. He does not nickel and dime his customers.His attitude is professional and he really cares about the outcome of his work and how the new work blends into the original. Having hired Michael 3 times over the course of more than 10 years shows why I have also recommended Michael to my friends.

Michael Menn was extremely professional and courteous from Day 1. He came up with creative ideas to remodel our Master Bath and Closet Area that no one else came up with.

All of his people were highly skilled in their respective areas of expertise and did a superb job during the remodel.

Michael was always there during the remodel to make sure that everything was being done properly according to the plans.

When the work was finished, all of his people did an excellent job cleaning up and not leaving any dust in the rest of the house.

We love our remodeled Master Bath and Closet Area. We couldn’t have done it without Micheal’s help.


Contractor was open, honest and responsive. Quality of work was first class. Response to problems/changes was immediate. Promptness and work of skilled trades was also first class. Follow up contact was excellent. Unconditional recommendation!

Michael planned and supervised the remodeling of our house, including 3 bathrooms, the kitchen and updated electric service. He hired all tradesmen, procured permits from the city, accompanied me to choose materials to be installed and kept me calm. Everything was completed on time and to my complete satisfaction.

Pool House built as well as contracted for water upgrades to house and pool house. Drainage pipes with bladders put into front of house. This was required by the Village of Deerfield in order to build an in ground pool. Contracted for a generator for house and pool requiring upgraded electric panel installed in house. Sound system for outdoors incorporated with indoors. Outdoor grill and general contractor to coordinate with Landscape specialist and pool company. Michael also was the general contrator for a water filtration system for our home. Mr. Menn was very knowledgable about all the specialties that were required to handle this backyard project. That included dryvit work to back of house and entire pool house. There were some problems with the Village inspectors regarding changes that the inspectors decided would be necessary during the construction. Mr. Menn handled everything in a very professional manner. All problems were resolved quickly.

Michael Menn pays attention–when problems arise, they will get addressed, even if it takes extra effort.

I hired Michael Menn to help layout the interior direction for my 27 year old ranch. They gave me several options to think about and the ability to mix and match these different designs to help me complete the total picture I have of what my house will look like.
They brought ideas I had never considered, which now I have added some to my new vision. The are very thorough and professional in their approach to my project. I am very much looking forward to the next level of involvement by Michael Menn, which is the organization and installation of these ideas.

We hired Michael to re-do our kitchen and the first floor. We have lived through remodeling in another house and working with Michael was our best experience yet. He provided a detailed schedule at the outset. He easily solved a structural problem created when the house was built. His architectural/design expertise contributed to many pleasing solutions along the way. And Michael works beautifully as a team player —coordinating with our interior designer and kitchen designers. Throughout the process, Michael addressed our concerns thoughtfully and promptly. We would definitely work with Michael again and can’t recommend him highly enough.

Michael Menn, Ltd. was both the architect and contractor of my recent condo remodeling. He helped us by designing a handicapped accessible bathroom and advised us on other ways to make our home more accessible by widening doorways. In addition, Michael gave me the names of a kitchen designer to help design my new kitchen and bathrooms as part of the project. When we first met, one question my husband and I asked was the duration of the project. Michael said it would take about three months. We moved out on May 31 and returned home on September 1. Unlike many friends who have used contractors, Michael was able to stick to the schedule he designed so that our project was completed in the three months he proposed. In addition, Michael was available to answer any question I had along the way. If I needed to meet him, he made himself available. While it is never easy having this much work done in one’s home, Michael made it as painless as possible. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who was planning a project in one’s home.
