Oakley Home Builders


Business Description
Oakley Home Builders is a custom home builder and remodeling company in the Chicago suburbs that has integrated distinctive home designs into surrounding communities, neighborhoods and coveted residential landscapes.

Positioned as a flourishing Chicago western suburbs home builder, Oakley Home Builders demonstrates a passionate pursuit of detail-rich, value-driven design and efficient construction that provides homebuyers with a masterfully planned and executed living environment.

Whether building on your site or one of our many available lots, Oakley Home Builders is recognized among Chicago western suburbs home builders for its excellent build-to-suit program. Guiding homebuyers through a simple, step-by-step process, we enhance the building experience by providing practical advice, flexible accommodations, and educational insight. But while we are mainly a home builder in Chicago suburbs, we also serve as an expert suburban Chicago remodeling company catering to the communities of Downers Grove, Hinsdale, Naperville, Glen Ellyn, LaGrange, Western Springs, Elmhurst, and other west suburban locations.

"We would absolutely recommend OHB to others, in fact, we already have! Both Ryan and Steve are great to work with. They have a fun, relaxed style that works for us. We had heard horror stories from friends who have built new construction, including longer build times, going over budget and poor working relationships. People are always so surprised when we tell them that we have not experienced any of these things! Not only has our home been completed two months ahead of schedule, but Ryan and Steve helped us stay within our budget. We are beyond thrilled with our new home!”

Tiling over stone can be done if the stone is very secure to the substrate. Can the granite be removed?

I believe it is very secure. I worry that it would be cost prohibitive on just my social securiy income to remove the granite. I had hoped to do the tiling myself without removing the three pieces of granite (one on each side and one on top) as the joins are level. Or if I use a tiler it is good to know how they should be doing it. These slabs are currently around the gas log fire insert and inside the wood surround. Very boring! Especially with all the gorgeous options for tiling now available. Thank you for responding and for any advice you can give me!

can't think it would be easy at all, in my opinion it would be a nightmare to clean

Precautions need to be taken in order to ensure that your backsplash will look as beautiful in ten years as it did the day it was installed. The best way to ensure your backsplash’s longevity and luster is to apply sealant to your tiles and grout.

The Perimeter cabinets are custom cabinets done in a Bright White glaze. The island features a Black Bean stain. The counter tops are Absolute Black Granite and White Carrera Marble. And thank you Catharine for your question. No we aren't required to answer the questions but do our best. We get hundreds of questions daily and just cannot possibly get to all of them. Thanks.

No. That is not the issue. Everyone knows that there is no legal obligation to answer questions. However, it is an accurate indication of attitude. The courteous and cooperative designers and architects are happy to answer questions. Whether or not they answers questions is a good gauge of their public relations skills. Who would you hire? Case closed and so is my checkbook to firms with uncooperative and uncaring partners and employees. It's the power of the purse. Why do some people just not understand that concept. Time for a marketing 101 refresher course!!!

I think I would want someone who spent more of their time on my project. I completely understand why someone couldn't answer so many questions and still get their job done.

That is a reflection on the television from the shelving unit on the opposite wall.
