  “Garces Contractors was hired as the plumbing contractor for the project in April, 2009 at the 39th Street Conduit Rehabilitation Project located in Chicago IL.  Garces Contractors was responsible for all plumbing work and site utilities for this project.

At the project start, Garces Contractors played a key role in the on schedule completion of the project. Garces Contractors was responsible for all permits, inspections, ordering materials, coordinating shipping of materials and equipment, scheduling and the performance of all exterior plumbing work for the project as well as the installation of the site utilities.
Garces Contractors was always on schedule with their work and I found them to be professional and the quality top notch.

Garces Contractors’ proactive approach to the project and the difficulties of working in the City of Chicago was second to none. I would strongly Recommend using Garces Contractors.”

  “It is my pleasure to recommend Garces Contractors for interior/exterior plumbing and all other plumbing services and needs. We have worked with the owner for more than a decade and can honestly and sincerely say that she always delivered on her promises.

C. Szabo Contracting has worked with Garces Contractors in a wide variety of settings. The have performed plumbing services for us, supplied competent workmen when we have found ourselves in a shortage and of course arranged all of our City of Chicago permitting needs. Whenever we require a City of Chicago water permit, Elda Mannion is the only person we would contact.

The Mannion family has been a fixture in Chicago water and sewer services for longer than we have had the pleasure of working with them. In fact, we were recommended to Garces Contractors many years ago by a colleague who is still a satisfied customer as well. The relationship the owner has developed over the years inside and outside of City Hall are priceless. We gladly recommend Garces Contractors for all your plumbing needs no matter how simple or difficult they may be”

  Garces Contractors installed a new water pipe to our house (which was built in 1886) in Hyde Park in January, 2010. This was not a simple job and required tapping into the existing water main under the street, installing a feeder pipe through a long stretch of property, and tunneling under existing sidewalks and into our house. Three other houses were also given new water service during this job. As such, this job was complex from not only a logistical standpoint, but also from the aspect of permitting at the city level. Garces Contractors dealt with both facets with grace and professionalism, and was a joy to work with. Permits were granted within a week of us signing the contract, and the job was finished two weeks after the first ground was broken (during the coldest time of the year and with a foot of snow on the ground!).

We found every member of the company to be polite, punctual and attentive to getting the job done right. From Marge in the office, who always treated our phone calls as if we were the most important people in the world, to the plumbers that kindly agreed to not kill the snakes they found in the garden in front of our house (as much as they might have wanted to), employees of Garces Contractors were among the best contractors we have ever dealt with. Finally, Mike Mannion was nothing short of fantastic, especially in keeping us posted on daily progress, and the magic he worked with the city permitting process.

We would not hesitate to recommend Garces Contractors for any job, large or small”
