Unprofessional! I can't speak to the work itself, as that aspect seems fine, but this organization lacks professionalism and conduct. They were recently hired by our management company to reseal our subdivision. While my wife was home

Horrible experience! Firemen (who are heroes in my estimation) should not be associated with these crooks. The workers came and applied "sealant" which i would liken to black paint to not only my driveway, but sidewalk and house as well.

I have used Firemen Sealcoating for 14 years and have NEVER had a problem! They are friendly and convenient - they do a great job at a reasonable rate.

I called for a quote and it seemed low. So I called back and they gave me the same quote, of course, not in writing. But once the men arrived they couldn't believe the quote I was given and they recalculated the quote, 80% higher, take it or leave it (hard to leave it when you made arrangements to be at home on a work day). My advice is that when you get an estimate from them, make sure it is in writing (and if they call you with a quote save the recording, which I did). And shop around. I emailed them and they denied bait & switch, and glossed over the issue. They told me that they just leave the invoice on your door to pay later, but apparently if you're in person they demand payment. And the "receipt" is scratched on a memo pad.

Cons: Bait & Switch???

I am so disappointed in the sealcoating of my driveway by Firemen's Sealcoating. They filled in cracks with filler and did not smooth it out left sand on the drive and put sealant on top of the sand. It looks like someone scirbbled on my drive. I called Howie twice and he never returned my call. I will not pay for this service it is totally unacceptable. I now need to call someone else out to fix the work that they did. I would never ever recommend this company to anyone!

I am a first time owner of a concrete driveway; Howie was quite helpful and patient in explaining the pros and cons of and the various available options for the garage floor/driveway sealing. The guys who came out to do the actual job turned out to be prompt, very courteous and quite professional. What intrigued me most was the customer care I received after the initial application of the sealant. Just after approximately two hours of the sealing, it started raining; the rain didn't last long. The seal was sort of dry before the rain started which I could notice from the driveway appearance with the rain water like on an oily surface. Howie was kind enough to drive by the next day, inspected the driveway and offered to send the crew a second time at no additional cost even though the integrity of the seal was not questionable. I have nothing but praise about the new crew who came out to perform the second application.

I will be glad to recommend Firemen for any type of driveway sealing work, contrary to the initial review from Mildred.

I've been using Firemen Sealcoating for years- they are the most reliable company. The phone girls are always so friendlly and knowledgable. The men who come out to do the driveway are always happy and efficient, not to mention pretty good-looking! ;)

Our driveway is done 2x a year by Fireman's. Nothing but praise for their prompt, clean and competent service. The workers are friendly and take their time to do it right. For over 15 years we have trusted Fireman's Sealcoating to do this job, and they have never let us down. Why do it yourself when we have a great family business here in Downers Grove that does a great job?

I have to agree with dggeek. Firemen's sealcoated my drive just yesterday. Very prompt, courteous service. I just installed new window wells that are surrounded by driveway. Not a dot of tar on them. Great job. I have used them for years and would not consider changing companies.

Part of me wonders if you are thinking of the wrong company, Mildred. I've used Firemen's service for as long as they've been in business and have never once had a problem with "splattering" or sealant on my vehicles. In fact, they rang my doorbell one year when I had a car in the driveway. The employees are nothing but nice- especially Howie! I'm honestly shocked at what you had to say about him. I would recommend this company over any other seal coating co. in the area- period. I've watch them apply it by hand, so I know the labor's worth it. My advice is to see for yourself how great their services are.

I had this company seal my driveway. They got the sealant all over my house and two of my cars (that were
sitting 10 feet away). They applied the sealant so unevenly, there were bare spots showing up 2 days
later. I called the owner over to my house - a fella named Howie - and he refused to do anything. He said
the black substance on my house and cars must have been put there by someone else. He was totally
outrageous. I had to hire another company to go over their crappy job and clean-up my house and cars.

I did a little checking with other people in the area and heard about similar problems.

I wouldn't recommend this company to my worst enemy. I'm an elderly woman living alone and wouldn't
even want that man around my house again. He was menacing and rude.
