We are writing to give our unequivocal endorsement of the work provided us by Mike Husenica and his company, Prairie Concrete and Excavating, Inc.
We contracted with Mike for the planning and installation of a large two tiered concrete patio and driveway ribbons. The job was complicated by the additional putting in place of a hot tub, fence, and pergola on the patio. Therefore, intrinsic to our project was the ability of our contractor to deal with the building code authorities who needed to approve our rather unique undertaking. Our experience with Mike was entirely positive and satisfactory.
It was obvious from the first time we discussed the project with Mike that it was not simply a job for him. He was engaged in the planning as if it was going to be his own patio, not ours. We felt that he was taking legitimate pride in our patio and how it would look from the outset of our conversations with him. He took his time to explain the alternatives available as to design and the type of concrete finish we might consider. When the plans were finalized we were confident that we had been thoroughly advised of all aspects of our project’s alternatives, not simply sold a product.
On a more basic level we make this strong recommendation because Mike provided us with all of the basic requirements one wishes from a contractor. He was prompt, cost competitive and clearly demonstrated marked proficiency in his craft.
We contacted and eventually hired Mike because of a prior project done by him in our neighborhood. We noticed how good it looked. Those neighbors indicated how pleased with the quality and service they had been provided. Our experience was the same.
We are very happy to provide this endorsement for a contractor who provided us with such satisfactory service and skill.

We want to thank you for the great job that you and your people did in designing and installing our driveway ribbons and patio. The patterned driveway ribbons are really attractive and the patio turned out just as we’d hoped. We particularly like the border design that you suggested for the patio.
It was a pleasure working with you and we appreciated your help in guiding us through the approval process with the Village of Huntley.
