Porch Construction


Here’s a house with an old, run down, out of code porch. The siding, soffit and facia has certainly seen better days.

And in the after photo, there’s the same house with a completely re-designed front porch, new siding, soffit, and facia.

Deck Construction


Another run down, out of code porch.

And in the after photo, there’s the brand new porch built to the current City of Chicago building code.

Masonry and Tuckpointing


Before, this old house in Chicago had an out of code porch and a leaking roof. The owners also wanted completely new face brick and siding.

After, check out the all new face brick, porch, roof, soffit/facia and gutters. What a difference!

Bathroom Remodeling Contractors


Before, this bathroom was a typical 9’x5′ with a single tub. We knocked out a wall, relocated the tub and added plumbing for a new shower.

What a difference. The new shower and tub is on the right.

Kitchen Remodeling Contractors


In this before picture, the refrigerator is directly behind the white partition wall. The homeowner wanted to open up the entire space.

In the after picture, there’s the same kitchen after the dividing wall had been removed and the new cabinets, hardwood flooring, and entry door had been installed.

BEFORE: Outdated kitchen in desperate need of help.

DURING: Just look at what we had to deal with.

AFTER: What a difference. In order to enlarge the space, we raised the ceiling and removed a portion of the wall.

So you’re ready to get the ball rolling on your remodeling project but you’re not sure how to go about hiring the right company. All your friends tell you to get multiple bids which is a good idea, but please don’t be in a rush to hire the first contractor you come across. In fact, no reputable contractor should pressure you to sign a contract the first time you meet. You will need to ask the right questions; especially if you’re trying to compare apples to apples.

At DWD RENOVATION we want you to be 100% comfortable with us. And honestly, the more questions you ask us, the better we’ll both feel.
You may not know exactly what you want out of your remodeling project (other than a great job) but your contractor should be able to help you with this. At DWD, we’ll control your entire project but we need your help! Be prepared to actively participate in all the decisions that will have to be made.

Any reputable contractor should have a list of references. DWD has an extensive list of completed jobs and satisfied customers.

At DWD we will provide you with a detailed proposal for your job, and when the time comes, a written contract that spells out exactly what work we are going to do, along with our written guarantee.

You may wonder how much you should expect to put down on a contract. The Better Business Bureau’s website suggests going by the rule of thirds: Pay one third at the beginning, one third when work is 50 percent complete, and one third after it is final and you are satisfied with the outcome. For our larger projects, DWD usually requires a down payment of only 15% with additional payments due as specific milestones are reached.

Just like any good relationship, the one between DWD and each of our customers will rely on good communication and collaboration. Nothing makes us happier than a happy customer!
So make that first step. Give us a call at (773) 657-5990 or shoot us an email and we’ll set up a time for a free consultation and estimate.
