Porches Deck

Kitchen Remodeling

We changed the size and location of the windows to accommodate changes in the layout of this kitchen.

Deck Project

The first picture is the old, run down, rear deck. We relocated the stairs and built a new expanded deck using composite materials and stainless steel cables.

Porch Project

The before picture is the old porch with stucco side walls. The new porch is built out of cedar.

Harrison Bathroom

This extra space for this 2nd floor master bath was created by removing a stair case and building a new floor over the open space. The bath features a shower with a custom tile base, a separate tub, and a separate toilet area.

Bathroom Remodeling

We took this unfinished space in the basement and transformed it into this custom bathroom.

Masonry/Brick Rehab

This beautiful old building had serious masonry problems. We removed the bricks over every window in the building, installed a new steel lintel with flashing over every window, and re-installed the bricks. Here’s one of the rusted lintels that we removed from the building above (the...

Masonry in Chicago

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. All new face brick, porch, roof, soffit/facia and gutters. What a difference!

North-Side Kitchen Rehab

The owners of this old house wanted to remodel their kitchen and asked us if we could remove the load bearing wall between the kitchen and dining room. Of course, our answer was yes! We moved the the kitchen cabinets and sink to the other side...

South Loop Loft

This was an extremely outdated kitchen in a south loop loft condo. We decided to remove this dividing wall between the kitchen and living space to create a great room. You can see what a difference this made in the pictures below.


Your Home is Our Inspiration

At DWD Renovation, our #1 goal is to make our customers happy. The way we accomplish this is:

  • Dave Hirsh, the owner of DWD Renovation will personally meet with you to discuss your project; you won’t be dealing with high pressure salesmen
  • After the initial meeting you’ll receive a comprehensive, written proposal.
  • We don’t offer phony sales prices; at DWD you’ll always get our best price.
  • We provide architectural services for jobs that require them, including porch construction and major home improvements.
  • Our team of designers and craftsmen will make your dreams a reality. We’ll help you pick out fixtures and tile and do everything possible to make your job go as smoothly as possible.
  • All work will be completed on time and within budget.


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.


Dave Hirsh

"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."
