5.0 Leslie C. Buffalo Grove, IL

Ivan and his team were nothing short of amazing! From the demolition of our prior deck and brick walls, to the installation of a beautiful paver patio - we could not be happier with their work. They were always on time, pleasant, neat and such amazing workers! They were at our home in our backyard for eight days, the job is finished and I already miss them! Ivan is a wonderful designer, had some great ideas and was so reasonable in his price. I loved them so much, I am hiring them to do my front stoop! My husband got probably 20 bids (yes 20). There was something about Ivan that he liked immediately! His bid was not the lowest but we had a great feeling about him and boy were we right! We have an amazingly beautiful patio that is ready now to be used for summer! Thank you to Ivan and his amazing team! Hire them! You won't regret it!

5.0 Brett T. Lake Zurich, IL

Ivan was the best contractor with whom I have worked. It's so rare today that someone exceeds your expectations, but October Hardscaping did. Ivan worked hard at communicating with me during every step of the process. We built two large, block retaining walls, one around the end of our driveway and the other behind our house. Ivan and his crew are on time, do excellent quality work and I cannot imagine other companies achieving the cost-quality ratio that I experienced. I cannot recommend them high enough; if you have a project please consider them!

5.0 Douglas S. Highland Park, IL

The work was done quickly and beautifully. Ivan and his crew removed our old front stoop and replaced it with a much better one. Incidentally, I took four bids and his was the lowest, yet I could not have gotten a better outcome!

5.0 Brian S. Round Lake, IL

5.0 Kathy C. Winnetka, IL

5.0 Heidi W. Mchenry, IL

October Hardscaping checked off all the boxes of what a consumer looks for in a contractor. Ivan was professional, knowledgeable, friendly, honest and reliable. Great communication through the process. He was very attentive to my vision of what I was looking for with my project. Ivan and his crew took great care in providing the best possible experience. October Hardscaping turned my un-level and dangerous property into a beautiful functional pathway with a seat wall on one side of our home, and another pathway on the other side. They also cut into a hill to my pond. Creating a wonderful retaining wall of stone slabs and boulders from the property. I now can access the pond all the way around. I love it! I highly recommend Ivan and October Hardscaping. My husband and I could not be more pleased. We will hire them for all our future needs.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
