“I wanted to drop a note to tell you how pleased I am with Castino. You were helpful and efficient and the painter did a really nice job. He was pleasant helping me move a couple pieces of furniture and working in such a small space...also impressed me with how neat everything was left. Thank you very much for everything.”
Karen B., Chicago
“Castino is the best contractor I have ever worked with. Their work is meticulous and the results are gorgeous. The breadth of their skills is also wonderful - they were resourceful and accomplished every single step of the project with ease (even new matters that came up along the way). Every member of the Castino team is extremely responsible. They arrived perfectly on time, and they stuck to every single one of the promised deadlines. I was delighted. In addition, I was able to be in constant communication with the team, and I felt like a very valued customer every step of the way. I will definitely use Castino again for our next project and I would recommend them to everyone.”
Erin M., Evanston
“Thank you so much! You powerwashed our deck last week and it looks gorgeous! I realize that we never knew what a difference a really professional powerwash could make. Thank you again.”
Jean D. & Susan M., Highland Park
“A few days ago, a man walked by and asked who did our stucco, admiring how good it looked. I was happy to tell him Castino. We are very grateful for your company’s excellent work and especially your willingness to stand behind what you do.”
Joyce and Dave A., Evanston
“I just wanted to thank you for assigning Julian to my external house painting project. He did a very detailed inspection of the exterior of my home and repaired all areas that needed it. Frankly I was amazed at his attention to detail and getting the job done right. He found and repaired areas that I didn’t even know were problems.”
Jim P., Lake Forest
“Your painters finished last week and did a nice job. The entire crew led by George were polite, clean and a pleasure to deal with.”
Jeff P., Northfield
“Thank you so much for your company’s excellent service. We are extremely happy with the professionalism and attention to detail that both you and Adrian displayed with regard to working on our “to do” list.”
Jennifer F., Skokie
“We could not be more pleased with the recent work that Castino did for us. Eugene the carpenter and Julian the painter were both highly skilled craftsmen and very pleasant to deal with. I was especially struck by how good they were with finding creative solutions to small problems as they occurred. He was really THINKING about the job in hand. Such a seemingly small project has greatly enhanced the appearance of the house.”
Ann H., Northfield
“Your staff accomplished in one week a task I have seen take weeks, and in some cases months. More importantly, the tasks were completed with expertise, efficiency, courtesy and congeniality. What more can a customer desire?”
Joan and Chester M., Glenview
“I liked Robert and the muscle power from the help he brought. The job sounded simple but required very careful measuring, finding studs, a good eye and shear strength.”
Mary B., Evanston
“Mario and crew did an outstanding job on the painting, and I was very impressed with Miguel when he came to clean the carpet too. Everyone I have dealt with at Castino has been courteous and responsive. Everyone who came to my home was very professional and respectful of my home. From the initial contact to the end of the project, I was thrilled with everything – and amazed at how quickly the job got done. I will definitely use Castino again in the future!”
Stephanie E., Northbrook
I was very pleased with the work. The crew was especially nice and thoughtful. I even asked that they do something for me while they were up on the ladders and they very willingly did so without question or hesitation. (That says a lot for Mario and his crew).
We just wanted to thank you again for your services. We couldn't be more satisfied...from the time Eric came out to give us an estimate and a complete description of what would happen, dealing with your front office, all the way to the completed project. As you can see from the attached photo, our entry door came out beautifully. Peter told us that he would treat our door as if it were his own, and he kept his word. Peter worked very hard at returning our door to its original splendor. His professionalism and skills were greatly appreciated. He represents you very well. Thanks again!
Bob & Debbie C, Skokie
Your representatives responded quickly and were ready to work on correcting the source of the problem in an instant. The potential for damage was at first, not fully understood until your representatives explained the potential for mold build up as a result of the water exposure. I must mention that the professionalism that all your representatives displayed helped put me at ease enough to get through the crisis. Percy was extremely efficient and courteous during this difficult time. Steve went over and beyond to help me understand the process and reassured me that the work would be done in a timely manner. Anyone can offer services, but Steve makes the difference in customer service. It is worth to mention that your staff is an excellent representation of professionalism and respect for any homeowner in distress. I would recommend your company to anyone in need of competent, ethical and timely services.
Goerge M, Vernon Hills
Awesome Job! Tony, Keith, Peter, Steve everyone of you (and your crews) did a great job. Thank You so much for all your hard work. The house looks better than it did before.
Cindy & Tom J, Bartlett
We wish to express our appreciation for the work done at our home. Everyone was polite, professional and competent. Special Thank you's to Eric Stute who estimated our damage and to Steve Corbette our carpenter who created a beautiful deck. We will be calling in the future regarding interior painting and minor carpentry. Warmest Regards.
Henry D., Morton Grove
"I just wanted to let you know what a pleasure it has been working with Castino. Eric was so accommodating with scheduling the estimate, and then got it to me so quickly, I was flabbergasted that you were able to manage such a quick turnaround between the estimate and the painting, and then Francisco did a wonderful job with the apartment on Friday, the walls look beautiful, so carefully and thoroughly done."
Sara N., Chicago
"Honestly your team of painters who worked on my job could not have been more professional. They were so polite, clean and organized. Castino may be on the high-end as far as prices go but you get what you pay for and in our case, it was worth every penny. I am so pleased."
Lisa S. Winnetka
"Steve Corbett is absolutely sensational - the best workman that's ever been in our house."
Jan. P, Glencoe
I just wanted to add my compliments to the work of Steve and Mike, who cleaned my carpets this week. They were very professional, offered sound advice on future care and efficient in getting the service done.
Pam F., Northbrook
Roger, Kimberly and Venus,
Thank you all for your most appreciated time support and wonderful donation for the WCE CO fall/winter Adopt A Room project. As you know we completed the project Saturday and in the end The Castino crew worked their wonders, both Mario and Jesus were the BEST, and the room sparkled! What a lovely sight for a Mom and her children to have, especially at this time of year!
I feel so very strong about what we do to help those most in need of feeling supported and in a way." loved from a distance" by giving them a cozy warm environment in which to start the healing process. I can't think of a better spot to start than to snuggle under the covers of a nice warm bed, or to cozy up in a rocker with Mom, and it is wonderful for them to now have a newly painted room and dresser too! I know that many many children and mothers will benefit from your gracious donation THANK YOU!
Kathy, Adopt a Room Committee
"You have exceeded all expectations in relation to the work done on my home the past few weeks. From initial quote to final invoice, I couldn't be more pleased...I would not hesitate to recommend Castino to anyone who might need your services. Thanks for being there for me."
Janet E., Northbrook
"The plumber knocked holes in our walls and ceilings which had to be repaired with plaster and plaster board. Also refinished parts of water stain in ceilings and walls along alley. This required careful and beautifully smooth patching and reinforcing where some of the holes were large and deep, sanding smooth and painting. It was also amazing to watch how careful they analyzed everything the estimator and done and made suggestions for more improvement. I also used them to paint all the outside porch and garage which required removing paint and repairing some of the banister. What amazed me the first time was how carefully they cleaned up ALL the scraped paint from the GRASS. They did not leave one piece of cracked paint outside and they were just as clean working one space at a time on the interior of our house. In al instances they were on tune, once even calling ahead when traffic and storm was going to make them late.(wow!). They accomplished all the jobs we ever used them for on time and in budget. They continually made appropriate suggestions about what else should be considered. Polite and hard working, they even stayed overtime because they did not want our interior to remain unfinished on the last day. If these people did root canals, I would used them in a minute.
Fast, efficient and the different teams worked well together so there was no wasted time."
"We referred you for some wallpaper work. She couldn’t be happier with the work your company did. I encouraged her to tell all her friends and she said she will. It’s always nice to hear some good stuff!"
"Zibi was wonderful, very service oriented and extremely professional. Always willing to listen and careful with job. Everyone we have met have been very nice, good with service and professional. Fantastic job! Thanks!
"All your guys are great - very efficient, friendly and hardworking."

"Stanley did an excellent job leading the work and keeping me informed. The prep work was overall outstanding - I have previously done this kind of work for myself and can appreciate the quality work that you did. Beyond the prep work, the painting was also of very high quality. I'm very happy with the job that Castino did and Stanley and crew were top notch."
Jay L., Evanston
“I’m calling to thank you for the work you’ve done in my home. My garage door looks great and the man that did the work was outstanding. Everyone that came was on time. Our deck looks wonderful. I’ll be happy to refer you to friends and family and hope to see you here again.”
Mary Ellen S, Realtor, Northfield
“Castino has done our stucco for as long as I can remember. I wouldn’t consider anyone else. I have seen the shabby workmanship of other companies first hand. We recently took over a multi-million dollar project and questioned the performance of the first stucco contractor. It was determined they were using the wrong metal lathe, using a softer tuckpointing mortar mix instead of stucco mix and their thickness was not to plan specs. This was all done in an effort to cut corners and save time and money. We escaped potential disaster a few years down the road by using Castino.”
The Timm T. Martin Company, Northbrook
“We used Castino Stucco for our stucco needs. I got away from them a few years back and hired a cheaper company for a few jobs but I learned my lesson. The negative call backs that I received in just a few short years were indefensible. I’m back to staying with Castino.”
Brookhaven Properties, Glenview
“I love the work you are doing. You guys have been great for me. Your service is on time, quality driven and professional. Your work is better than I ever thought it could be. I’ve never had any issues.”
JNS Properties, Wilmette
“I’ve got so called stucco applicators doing cost comparison of the products I sell and I have a hard time competing with the crap they are buying at other places and putting up on people’s walls. Unfortunately, there is no training or licensing required by the state and there is absolutely no quality control for application and materials used. I have recently been out on four jobs where the so called stucco applicator was screwing Durock onto the house, skim coating it and calling that stucco. The builder and architects had no idea this is not acceptable. It’s a crap shoot - I know the quality of service and materials of Castino Stucco to be the highest standard and I have worked with them for decades.”
“I wanted to take the time to formally than you, Roger Castino, and the staff for the excellent work on the interior kennels last summer. We were amazed at the level of professionalism displayed by the entire crew from the moment the project started. I realized it was no easy project, especially with the weather conditions and given the environment, but the work performed was exceptional and I can honestly say, I’ve never been more impressed. Despite the struggling economy, Mr. Castino was very generous and understanding to a Not-for-Profit organization such as ours, and we are forever grateful for such compassion and believe this greatly adds to his credibility as a business owner.”
Stephanie Hoffman, President, Executive Director, Heartland Animal Shelter
I have been using Castino for over thirty years and I am proud to know them and their incredible service and professionalism. My first house was seventy years old and they totally renovated the outside cosmetics, repairing trims, doors. and porches. The inside was painted, papered, and floors sanded to the a lovely natural wood finish. The house was a real prize. My next house, again, was papered and painted, and they made all the rooms shine. Not only was it treated well cosmetically, walls were dry-walled and repaired. The floors were again sanded. I had some real emergency floods and Castino was at my house with-in an hour and spent even a weekend repairing pipes saving me several dollars. The disposal was replaced and dishwasher flood problem solved. Castino has painted my entire new townhome in the past year and a half. They have cleaned my couch and hung a large set of drapes in the living room.
I have always enjoyed my contact with Roger as he is prompt and thorough when giving estimates. And, he is always fair. Cathy always responds in making appointments rapidly and gets my needs met, The contractors and real gentlemen and a real pleasure when they work in my house. They are thorough and takes the customer first. They are receptive to my needs and ideas. Best of all, the work ethic is impressive, and the job is always finished in timely fashion. When the work is completed they put the house together quickly.
I would never consider call anyone else for help. Castino is the only company to call!
I WANT YOU TO KNOW IT WAS A PLEASURE DEALING WITH YOUR COMPANY, YOUR EMPLOYEES WERE VERY PLEASANT AND COURTEOUS, ALSO IN CLEANING UP THE AREAS THEY HAD BEEN WORKING IN. THE MAN PAINTING THE CEILINGS WAS EXCEPTIONAL, ESPECIALLY WHEN HE HAD FINISHED HIS JOB I COULDN'T BELIEVE HE ACTUALLY CLEANED THE WHOLE DRIVEWAY WHERE THE TRUCK WAS PARKED, AS THERE WERE LIGHT FOOT PRINTS FROM THE PLASTER WHERE HE HAD TO WALK BACK AND FORTH TO THE TRUCK FOR MATERIALS. PETER WAS ALSO VERY PLEASANT AND EXCEPTIONAL, SCHEDULING FOR OUR CONVENIENCE IN ORDER TO NOT DISRUPT US AS TO WHAT WE HAD BEEN PUT THRU. IN TODAY'S WORK WORLD IT IS TRULY A PLEASURE TO DEAL WITH A COMPANY SUCH AS YOURS.I CANT SAY ENOUGH ABOUT OUR EXPERIENCE WITH YOUR COMPANY.
MR. & MRS. RICHARD M
"As customers who were thrust by an unfortunate situation into a working relationship with your crew, we were extremely appreciative and most delighted by every aspect of a difficult situation becoming a positive outcome. From the time the call was made to Castino to the last inspection, I cannot tell you how attentive,respectful and professional your team and leadership was. Led by Peter Kadava who ALWAYS kept us informed and communicated every step of the process and additionally worked around our schedules yet making sure the work that needed to get done was done at the highest level. His personal care over the clean-up and build out of our basement is one that I will not forget. He made us feel like family and for that we are greatly appreciative. Eugenio, who worked the majority of the days was a consummate pro and always prompt and thorough. Finally, Steve Small guided us and assisted on making sure all the little things that needed to be addressed got attended to. He went out of his way several times to make sure paper work was done and guided us through the process in a humanistic way something that is refreshing to see.
Overall we were extremely satisfied with your work and most importantly with how we were treated. "
George and Lori C.
"Dear Peter, thank for you an EXCELLENT job! You were thoughtful and wonderful. I hope everyone at Castino recognizes how special you are. They are lucky to find such a great person like you and your team. Our house looks terrific!"
“I have been a long time customer of Castino for just about every service they offer. I scheduled carpet cleaning and knew that there was an area of spots that bleach had destroyed the color. It always annoyed me but I didn’t want to pay to have new carpet installed. When Paco came and saw the stains, he told me about Wes who can dye the carpet to its previous color. Wes came out that day and did a beautiful match and the price was very reasonable. His professionalism was amazing. I wish I had known about this process a couple of years ago when I had to throw out my oriental rug due to dog stains. I gave your name to a friend of mine who had some couch stains and she is thrilled with your work. Thanks again for having such professional employees!!”
