What local customers have to say...
***** I highly recommend Mike Schuler/DoorsWellHung.Pro. Our front door was at the point that my kids could not open or lock it -and it was so drafty. Mike immediately diagnosed the issue and had it fixed within 24 hours of us contacting him. Clearly, Mike has a strong knowledge of the technicalities and importance of well functioning doors, but his responsiveness, service and attention to details while working were equally impressive. I recommend him and his business with no reservation.”
--- Laurel Rosch, Champaign ***** Are there any true craftsman still around today?
I am not talking about a handyman, many of whom many are quite good.
No, what I mean is the dedication to perfection of the craft and
willing to work with less than "perfect" store bought materials.
Yes, we can go to Menards and install a door. But, what if your
existing structure "aint quite right"...? Built years ago and needing
updating. Now is when you go to Michael Schuler, ask him to work his magic,
sit back and be amazed.
Nice guy?-yep, Professional?-yep, Willing to take to extra time?- yep
Michael is the only person in central Illinois I could find that was willing to do what I needed.
Thank you again for your great work!
--- David R Tatro DVM, Bloomington, IL ***** As a general contractor for four decades I hired Mike Schuler many times for his woodworking abilities and especially for his expertise in door installations. You could always count on Mike to hang the door correctly the first time and not have to worry about future problems or call backs. I highly recommend Mike Schuler for any door need.
--- Larry Buckley: Buckley Construction, Inc. ***** When we had a break in at our house last year, our back door was damaged beyond repair. I tried calling different door companies to come out and replace it, but everyone told me it would be a week or two before they could even look at it. I called Mike Schuler and he came the next morning, helped me pick out a new door at Home Depot, and had it installed by the end of the day. We now have a much nicer and more secure door, with much better weatherproofing than our old one. If you need any kind of door work done, Mike is definitely your man!
--- Knut Bauer, Urbana, IL ***** The work Mike did for us in Urbana at at our rental was very professional and looks very nice. Our tenant is very pleased with the work he did on the back door and front door. If we need any carpentry work in the near future we will contact Mike.
--- Larry Sorenson, Colorado ***** Michael Schuler is a wonderful contractor who did the build out of my original yoga studio and a expansion to add another studio space. He is very easy to work with and took the stress out of two very complicated projects. He is warm, honest, prompt, detail oriented, and does impeccable beautiful work. He hung many doors for us including reclaimed industrial glass doors which all work perfectly and look great in our space. I highly recommend him and if we ever decide to expand again he is only contractor I would want to have work on the project.
---Kathryn Fitzgerald Art Director Amara Yoga & Arts, Urbana ***** Mike Schuler made and installed sliding doors and folding doors for my home. He also repaired and adjusted my exterior doors. Mike is an expert and his work is excellent. I wouldn’t want to hire anyone else to work on my doors.
--- John White, Urbana ***** Mike Schuler has completed a number of carpentry projects for our home over the past 11 years. Those projects have included several door installations: a new sliding door from our den out to our deck, a new front entry door to our house, and both a garage door and “people” door to our garage. Obviously, the desired outcome for any door installation is “level and plumb.” Mike’s door installs are just that! --- Pat Kovar, Champaign ***** I cannot speak too highly of Michael Schuler and his work. Michael's huge experience and skill
enable him to be a craftsperson-artist-and-magician! What he makes is elegant and sturdy; beautiful
and practical. What he crafts, lasts.
Over the years I've called on Michael again and again to make doors, cabinets, shelves,
window frames, desks, tables—you name it. He's crafted a roomy table into a very small kitchen space; he's created a massive 8foot by 8foot cabinet that houses fragile computer graphics from the 1980's so that they can stand upright and protected. Much of his genius comes from his ability to listen both to
what I want, and to what the space wants.
People ask me how it is that my house is so beautiful, and I reply, “Michael Schuler”. --- Susan Parenti, Urbana ***** We knew Mike for many years; he installed several interior and exterior doors in our house, custom built two studio desks and much more. Mike's work is always highest quality, the quality we could totally rely on. We'd recommend him in a heartbeat.
--- Tanya Shur and Anna Maria Watkin, Champaign ***** I have to say that there is something very particularly satisfying in the solid-sounding, one-syllable “chunk” I experience when closing a heavy interior wooden door in our home. It’s not a two-syllable sound, and there is no bounce or rattle in it. Just a solitary “chunk.” Like the sound the door on my Toyota makes. The sound of the door handle latch is buried in that “chunk” too. Just amazing. Kudos to Mike Schuler who hung that door, and fixed a few others in my house. --- Jeff ***** We are very satisfied with the door installation. Retrofitting is never an easy task. Your workmanship and experience was necessry for this door replacement to be a success. --- Bill Gray, Urbana lor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur.
