My problem was with winter ice dams. TC Aluminum arrived on time and examined my gutter system and recommended a very acceptable replacement system. All work was done quickly and carefully. Besides gutter replacement and releveling of the gutters, they also put in two different styles of gutter covers/caps and heating coils. Tim and his workers are not only good at what they do but are intelligent and thoughtful service providers. They understood the nature of my problem(s) and adjusted their activities to better solve my d*** ice dam issues. So far I have had no problems and if I did Tim told me to call him to see if there was a solution he overlooked. I strongly recommend TC Aluminum.

Tim was always extremely responsive through the entire process, from the initial quote until completion of the project. We changed some the scope of the work and inquired about gutter guards through the proposal process and Tim was always quick with an updated proposal and willing to discuss cost differences between the proposals. Tim's team completed the work and were extremely good at cleaning up after the job.

Tim impressed us immediately. Unlike some contractors that came to give estimates, he saw the many details to work out, such as how to handle a decorative edge, and described his solution. His estimate was detailed and comprehensive and he did just what he said he would do for the price he gave us. His crew was friendly and professional. They answered all my questions and quickly resolved any complications that arose. The project took a week with a large crew involving carpenters, a roofer, and Tim's aluminum folks. Tim coordinated it all so that it was done with efficiency and good coordination between crews. The job was started a bit ahead of schedule and finished in the time estimated. We couldn't be more pleased with Tim's workmanship and attention to detail. I highly recommend his services.

Tim was terrific. He returned my call within 30 minutes even though I called him after business hours and I had a written estimate within two days. His price was competitive. He called us periodically to give us updates on the status of the materials that were being fabricated for the project and he started on the date promised. His crew was efficient and neat. Tim was always available for questions and he made sure the job was done right. He clearly cares about the quality of his work and went out of his way to make sure we were happy with the work and the finished product. He did a remarkable job. I wish every home project we have could go as smoothly as this one. I would highly recommend this company.

Tim Chandek's aluminum company and crew tackled the installation of my new seamless gutters, downspouts and leaf guard much sooner than I had anticipated.  They were professional from start to finish and battled my wasp nests with aplomb.  Without charging me extra, they even repaired a small section on my deck where the wood had decayed.  There were no debris parts left behind-the clean up was immaculate.  I would definitely recommend their work to prospective customers and hire them again myself.

Went very well. Tim Chandek was nice to work with, knew what he was doing, and explained well the situation at hand. Performed as he said he would. The workers generally cleaned up after the job was over.


July 29, 2010

Everything went very well. The job took only two days to complete. Most of the fascia trim was installed the first day and the soffit underlayments on the second. They did a pretty good job of cleaning up afterwards also.


July 22, 2010

From start to finish it was a pleasure to do business with this company.



April 25, 2010

We were in the market for new gutters in order to get water headed further from our foundation. We also needed to change the location of the downspouts. Tim was one of two bids we had on the job. We choose TC because Tim offered excellent service, communication, and quality. TC provided a 7 year warranty and the other bid was a 5 year warranty. In addition, we felt that should we need to have additional work performed, Tim would be the type of person to honor the warranty and work with us should concerns arise. The actual installation was a breeze. The site was completely cleaned up at night and the workers were able to work around the rhubarb plant I have been cultivating over the years. Both of Tim's co-workers were pleasant and easy to communicate with. Tim always kept in great communication. For example, if he was coming to cross-check measurements, he would give a courtesy call on his way over. Also, he called in the morning when the workers were on their way. Towards the end of the job it was clear that Tim has high standards and if something is not done the way he thinks it should be done, he gets it fixed. When the job was over, Tim & team completely cleaned the driveway, twice-over, for nails and debris. We have had a good rain since the gutters were installed and have been pleased with them. The new gutters have helped some dampness on the foundation, as we suspected it would. Our prior gutters were done by a do-it-yourself-er and we felt a professional job would get things pitched the right way.

Tim came out to quote the job personally in February, he left the quote with my wife that day. He came back out later in March to meet me and to add few things to the quote that we had wanted specified. His price was on the lower end of our expected range, and considering the great products that his company uses we thought it was a great deal! We signed with him on the second meeting. A few weeks later Tim and his crew came out to our home to do the work. They quickly removed the existing gutter system and had the house and garage almost all put back together in 5 hours. They did some clean up before leaving, and left some material and equipment for the next day. The next day, they came out early and finished the job in just a few hours. The new gutters looked great and the finished corners clean up the house nicely! We were very impressed with the looks and performance of the new system (I even tested it with a hose). After they were all done, they cleaned again but did miss a few pieces here and there. All in all, Time and is crew were great to work with and were fast and professional on the job site. I would recommended that to anyone who asks me.

West Allis WI

The crew was professional and did an excellent job. They also did an excellent job in cleaning up after they were done. In sum, this was one of the best experiences we have ever had with a contractor!


April 21, 2010

Fantastic, Tim came out and wrote up a estimate for me. I then talked with him on the phone and he agreed to come out an answer a few questions I had. The following week they came out and did the whole job on a Tuesday. I had a couple of concerns on the downspouts and he came out and took a look at them and made some minor adjustments. He also mentioned that if I had any issues in the future to not hesitate to call. Definitely will recommend him to any of my friends!!

I called Tim Chandek late last fall about correcting the pitch on our gutters that prevented water from flowing to and down the drainpipes on our house. He was very prompt in returning our call and then visiting our home to give us an estimate, as well as explaining the pros and cons of new gutters vs. repairing the old ones. Since the ones on our house were in good shape structurally, we decided to have them repaired instead of replaced. Winter weather, however, set in shortly after we signed the contract for the work, so we waited until now to have the work done. Tim called the day before his crew came to do the work to set up a time. The crew arrived promptly and performed their work competently. They were also very neat. One of the workmen discovered a caulking problem, the repair of which was not, of course, specified in the contract, but for which we negotiated a very reasonably priced fix that also included reinstalling the gutter guards. The work TC Aluminum did adds to the curb appeal of our home; I definitely got more than I paid for and would certainly consider buying new gutters from this company as well.


March 05, 2010

They did a quality job from start to finish. Tim explained all my options, the pros and cons of different styles of gutters very throughly, which made it very easy to pick the style that was best for my house. He also helped me understand how ice dam's form and how to prevent them. I highly recommend this company to anyone looking for gutter,soffit, and trim work.


February 13, 2010

I needed soffits and fascia installed for insurance reasons, and had a strict timeframe. I called TC Aluminum and talked to the owner Tim Chandek. I explained my problem and timeframe, he was great in accomodating me. He came out on Sat and came up with an estimate for me by Sun. I needed this work done by the next Fri. Problem was we had a horrible winter storm on Tue of the week. Tim communicated effectively from day one.Tim ordered the materials on Wed after the storm, him and his crew stared work on Thursday, and finished on Fri just as promised. Exactly my timeframe! Keep in mind that all this is after a major storm! It was refreshing working with someone who did exactly what they said they would do. It looks great now! His quality and workmanship are excellent! If you are looking for a great company with unmatched quality, price, communication, and service, look no further. You will not be disappointed!


December 06, 2009

Great from start to finish. We were very impressed with the professionalism of the owner, Tim. He was very prompt with his estimate and was able to provide us with a couple of alternatives. We chose to go with the most expensive option of half round gutters that would match the original architecture of our home. He was very patient waiting for our exterior paint job to get finished. The job was completed on time, good clean up and the gutters look great.


December 04, 2009

Tim is an amazing guy with high integrity!!! I originally had 2 bids for the work and signed Tim's contract even though it was priced a bit higher. He came prepared to the bid complete with photos of previous jobs, proof of insurance, and letters of happiness. His work just looked more professional and I'm a stickler for detail. We had an issue when the first contractor jumped the gun and did the work without a signed contract (I also completed a review on them). I thought at first it was Tim, but the upper facia hadn't been finished. The invoice was the key to help solve what happened. Tim was a resource who not only looked at it from his point of view as a business owner, but also from my point of view as a customer. He sought out legal and peer resources for advice on how to proceed. He was a true advocate and was willing to work with the situation. In the end the other owner took full responsibility and Tim took down his work. As a gentleman he left the scrap for the other business to pick up. His crew was efficient, friendly, and they kept us informed every step of the way. The clean up was fantastic and it was an instant face lift to our house. I couldn't say enough about TC Aluminum!!


November 14, 2009

Thank you for the great work done on our house. Even the upper fascia trim was an instant face lift to our home! I can't say enough about your professionalism, integrity and advocacy with the contracting mishap. I truly felt you partnered & collaborated with me in seeking resolution to a difficult situation. Your team was timely and took pride in their craftmanship. As I found you on Angie's List, I know I will do due diligence reflecting a nomination for Page of Happiness! Thank you again. It was a pleasure working with you.

Thank you so much for the work done on our gutters. They look fantastic and with all of the rain we have had lately they  have been useful. I appreciated that you fit us into your schedule in such a short time frame and got the job done quickly. When I returned home after they were done, there was no trace of you being there, other than the great new gutters. I will definitely pass on your name to anyone looking for gutters.

I want to commend you and your crew for a job well done. After having my storms replaced last fall, along with gutters, Soffit, and Fascia work I realized I could confidently call you again for a complete siding job this year.

The crew arrived during an early summer heat wave and diligently went about their business. Contending with the heat and mosquitoes the job went off without a hitch; a testament to their work ethic.

Again, thank you and your crew for an excellent job!

Thank you for a job well done! You and your "team" did a superb job installing new gutters and guards on our ranch home. The "team" was professional at all times and showed extreme pride in their work. Their work ethics was shown in the cleanliness of the job and the overall workmanship.

I would highly recommend your company.

We are writing this letter to express our appreciation for the great job you and your crew did installing our gutter guards. Everyone was very competent, efficient and friendly.

We had talked to several other companies about having our gutter guards done. We chose you because we felt you were the most knowledgeable about all the different products available and the benefits and problems of each one. Because of your knowledge we were able to make the selection we felt was best for us.

You also went above and beyond by installing our zinc strips, fixing the gutters where they were leaking. The gutters are only  a few years old and done by another company and should not have had any problems. The other gutter company had installed the front gutter incorrectly and we always had water gushing over the gutter and running all over  the sidewalk and in the winter it would freeze, causing a safety problem. Thanks to your fixing the gutter we don't have that problem now.

Another thing we appreciated was the fact that you always kept us posted on appointment times when you would be here. We had to cancel twice, once because of a blizzard and another time when there was a high wind warning. But you always called and explained the situation and we agreed with you decision.
We couldn't believe how well a job you did and how quickly you did it! Thank you so much for the excellent work you did for us.

We are recent customers of TC Aluminum. We had many improvements made to the exterior of our home; new gutters, fascia, soffits, door installation, and down spouts.

The work done by the men at TC Aluminum was outstanding. They did an incredible job and absolutely transformed the appearance of our home. Tim and his two employees displayed hard work and total dedication to our house for the few days it took them to complete the job. They had a commendable work ethic from the time they started our home until it was complete. Tim and the men working with him were impressively quick in completing such a high quality job. We were very impressed with the completed job and the new appearance of our home.

We highly recommend TC Aluminum to anyone who is in need of improvements to the gutters, soffits and fascia. They were fantastic to work with. Their customer service is fabulous. TC Aluminum was an outstanding choice for us and it would be for you too. They were wonderful.

I am very happy with the job that was done by Tim Chandek, of TC Aluminum.  He completed some trim work on my home in addition to installing gutters, downspouts and Truguard Gutter Protectors.  He was very careful to match the trim work with my existing trim to make my home look complete. He was always prompt, and was well prepared to answer all of my questions and concerns.  When the job was completed, the cleanup job was meticulous.  It was a pleasure to do business with Tim.

I would recommend Tim and his company, TC Aluminum, if you need any work done on your home.

We are so happy with our new siding. Tim and his crew were fast, polite, and efficient. We waited to send this letter to see if we were truly happy with the job. We received our January electric bill. We were told that rates would be 40% to 60% higher than last year. We realize that this January was milder than last year but even with the rate increases our electric bill was $150.00 less than last year. What a product! We had gutters and downspouts replaced 5 years ago and called the installer numerous times to fix the leaks. We just assumed that hanging icicles were part of Wisconsin winters. After last weeks' terrible rain and ice storm, we were left with not one hanging icicle. We compared our new siding with my sister's new siding. We are proud to say that ours looks nicer and is more durable-the seams are finished off. We highly recommend TC Aluminum for any siding needs.

The job that TC Aluminum on my house was very good. They installed siding, trim, Fascia, Soffits, and gutters. The installation was of good quality and done in a timely manner. I enjoyed the friendly manner and work ethic of the entire crew. They worked hard and didn't waste any time. The job was finished on time. Tim Chandek is a hard working young man who is very concerned about the quality of installation. He is eager to please and is willing to adjust for any issue than came up. Tim knows his business and I will recommend him anytime.

In January of 2006 I had TC Aluminum do work on my house.  The company installed aluminum gutters and downspouts, replaced wood with aluminum soffits and fascia trim, added Truguard gutter protectors and covered the front of the house with premium vinyl siding.  I am extremely pleased with the results.  The work was completed carefully, on time and cleaned up afterward.  Tim Chandek approached the job in a very professional manner.  He was very helpful in making suggestions as to what need to be done and in choosing the best materials.  He was very patient when it found it difficult to make decisions regarding materials and colors.  I would certainly not hesitate to have Tim do projects for me in the future, and highly recommend him to anyone wanting excellent work and a fair price.

I'm pleased to offer a general recommendation for TC Aluminum.  Without question the quality work that you and your team performed this past fall to install the 6"gutters and 4" downspouts at our home helped to sell our house rapidly, as we had hoped.

The basement at the property had water seepage issues over the years.  Yet, after the gutter installation, the basement was completely dry after two very heavy downpours this fall -- one which occurred while our eventual home buyer was inspecting the property.  I think the larger downspouts in particular may have handled the runoff better and kept the ground adjacent to the building from becoming saturated.

I was impressed with the speed with which you responded to my call requesting a follow-up visit to trim the upper downspout slightly to facilitate the rainwater overflow from the balcony perimeter gutter.  Your employee fixed this situation quickly and efficiently.  I also appreciate your willingness to transfer your company's long-term service warranty on the gutter system to the new homeowners.

Lastly, I appreciate your referral to Carson Faris of Integrity Contractors for the exterior house painting and have no hesitation in recommending him to your customer as well.

I had the pleasure to work with Tim (TC Aluminum) this past summer when I contracted him to provid updated siding and gutter systems on my house.

The work he provided was done extremely well.  Both he and his crew were courteuous, conscientious and showed pride in their work.  The job was completed in a timely manner and his customer service was excellent.

I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone considering having this type of work done.

My wife Rosie and I had you completely replace our gutter system, which was a very problematic gravel roof over customized (but leak prone) gutter system.

You and your crew did an admirable job on our house.  Also, you accommodated us with a minor bit of carpentry work on the outside paneling of our home.
We haven't had a heavy rain since you completed the job , but it looks like everything was professionally installed and leak-proof.

We heartily recommend you and your crew for gutter system installation.

Mark and I would like to thank you for the excellent job residing our home.  Most importantly we would like to compliment you on your outstanding customer service.  Throughout the year we've worked with numerous contractors who do not even come close to your level of service.  It was truly a pleasure working with a contractor who actually returned phone calls in a timely manner, called to inform us if there was a delay and took time to clean up after.  Before the project began, you took time to go through materials, cost and how long it would take to complete the project.  We were also impressed with your knowledge and ability to explain the process of residing to the homeowner so we would know what to expect while the work was in progress.  Amazingly, without being asked, you replaced a section of trim that did not meet your standards.  Thanks you.  Lastly, thank you for making our project a pleasant experience.

Thank you for the wonderful job you and your crew did on the replacement of our back yard gutters and the reconstruction of the gutters on the remainder of the house.

I thought you and your crew did a fantastic job in one day, I appreciate that efficiency.

You did this job on Monday July 11th, on Wednesday July 13th we had a down-pour, I had a chance to confirm the results of your work; it was perfect , no problems.

Thanks again for a job well done, give your crew a raise, these guys are great.

As a very satisfied customer I am pleased to write a letter recommending the work of Tim Chandek with TC Aluminum.  Tim did some specialized work for us in a home we have been in for 12 years.  One involved doing a metal capping over the drip plate board that run above all of my windows and the lower perimeter of my house.  This drip plate board tends to rot out and it was recommended by others that I contact TC Aluminum.  Tim was able to custom fit a metal strip over each of these wooden surfaces with baked on paint to match my house.  The metal will prevent the water from reaching the wood.  Additionally he was able to replace any of the rotted boards prior to installation.

When the work was finished I was amazed at the high quality look it had because he used a wood grain metal that also closely matches my cedar siding.  Also the fit of each of the corners is perfect.  He had to do allot of detail work on this project and I am completely satisfied.

The other project was complete replacement of my gutters and downspouts.  My house had just been painted and Tim was able to come in after and not disturb the fresh painting and was able to match the Gutter color identically with the drip plate work and also the house color.

From the very beginning, Tim approached me in a very professional manner.  He kept to schedule and did what he said he was going to do both in quality of his work and his pricing.  Throughout the project Tim would call me regarding timing and when he would be at my home and would time his work with the weather. Obviously his metal work cannot be done during storms and lightening.  When project was done the cleanup work was impeccable and one did not know he had been there as he left my property in the same condition as when he started the job.

Again I would highly recommend Tim Chandek and TC Aluminum and wish him all of the success possible.  I expect you will also be a satisfied customer as I have been.

I just want to thank you for the wonderful job you did on our gutters, downspouts and fascia trim.  The attention to detail that you gave to our home is appreciated more than you can know.  We could not have asked for a better job done.

Not only did you do a wonderful job on installing the gutters, but I was much impressed with the cleanup you did afterwards.  I was expecting to have to go around the yard and pick up discarded materials.  But you and you crew took care of everything.

Got home after it was dark on Friday, so I didn't get to look at the gutters. On Saturday morning Jaye and I took a walk around the house to look at them.  We are so pleased and happy with the work you did.  It looks great.  We are also thankful for your concern in matching the color of the gutters to the rest of the house.  I'm sure there was some extra efforts in doing so.

Once again thank you for your very skilled work and placement of the downspouts, I'm sure it will make a great difference in this coming winter.

I recently had new siding, soffit, gutters, downspouts and gutter guards installed by TC Aluminum.  Let me detail some observations:

1. The workmanship and installation were superior to any house repairs I have experienced.  Ti m was available in person or over the telephone during the entire process.  His knowledge of the various manufacturers, durability and color retention allowed u to make choices that led to a superior project.

2.  He delivered what he said he'd deliver in a timely manner; at any time I was aware of the completion status of the project.

3.  Tim has used his off-time to further advance himself: the completion of a degree while working full-time is no mean feat.  As a customer, I felt he valued my time also.

I was totally satisfied with the project and the professionalism with which it was delivered.  I unhesitatingly would recommend TC Aluminum for any project such as was described.

For the last couple of years, I had been in the need of new gutters for my Elm Grove Home.  I was about to start researching for a company to do the replacement when I happened upon your flyer in my mailbox.  I decided to give you a call; we met; and I agreed to have you proceed with installing new gutters with the Truguard gutter protection system.  I have been very pleased with the results.  The gutters look great on the house and have functioned without a problem during our recent wet weather.  You and your company were very professional in all aspects of the project, from our initial meeting, to installation and through final cleanup.  I also appreciate the attention given to small details, such as cutting and covering the black corrugated tubing from an old downspout.  Please feel free to use myself as a reference if needed, and don't hesitate to have people drive by to see the results.

Penny and I wanted to thank you again for the professional and timely job that you and your crew completed for us.  The new gutters look great and function perfectly.

The color match was excellent.  We certainly do not miss getting dripped on every time we step outside the back door.  Your recommendations for placement and size of downspouts has eliminated the puddling problems that we had been experiencing.  We also are pleased with the gutter covers on the lower roof lines.  It is refreshing to work with a contractor who honors his quote and completion date.  We also appreciate the repair work that you did where the birds had nested in the eave.  Please count on us as extremely satisfied customers and feel free to use us as references.

As I prepare to close the books on 2003, I am moved to thank those individuals who have provided me with good service and value. You and TC Aluminum come readily to mind. The jobs you have performed for me over the past year have been done on time, professional and at a fair price. It is a pleasure to have a relationship with a contractor that saves me the trouble of getting multiple bids. I look forward to more good service in the coming year. Please remember to bid the gutters on my buildings on Glendale Avenue and N. 77th Street. Thanks again for jobs well done.

I wanted to take a moment to tell you how well the gutter cover system you installed is working.  You should recall I was concerned about the possibility of heavy rain being directed over the cover and down to the ground rather than into the gutters.  We now have experienced heavy rain along with winds that have deposited leaves onto our roof and on the gutter covers, but not in the gutter.  The rain is going through the gutter system and into the yard via the downspouts.

The system works great.

It was a real pleasure doing business with you and your product is as good as you said it would be.  I'm sure the word of mouth advertising we have been able to do for you will allow you to gain more happy customers.
