Integrity Homes, Inc.
Design-Build Firms in Barrington Hills, IL
"We needed a contractor to do some major alterations of our just purchased home. The remodel included: gutting, design, and installation of the master bath; woodwork, gutting and raising the ceiling in our dining room; tilework in the kitchen; rebuilding a fireplace; the need for several custom pieces; replacing doors and windows; overhauling all lighting; and painting every surface. We could not have more faith in, or admiration for, Greg Tabert of Integrity Homes, Inc. We have an older home that had undergone several remodels and the demolition revealed many unpleasant surprises which Greg handled calmly and effectively. He is above all a gentleman, respected by all of his sub-contractors who, by the way, were excellent. He is a creative and willing collaborator, always ready with a pencil and a head full of wisdom and ideas. He also gave us many cost saving options along the way. Our home is now stunning and we are thrilled to see our ideas executed so beautifully. We are planning to add a sunroom/porch in the near future and very much look forward to working with Greg again."

Normandy Remodeling
Design-Build Firms in Barrington Hills, IL
"We are midway through a major renovation with Normandy Remodeling and would rate the planning process and project at the highest level, so far. Our architect, Vince Weber, has been outstanding to work with. From the start, we felt comfortable with Vince and choose to work with Normandy mainly because of him. He was patient, flexible and really listened to what we wanted to do and helped us design the home that would fit our lifestyle. Not having any renovation experience, Vince has been instrumental in helping us throughout the planning and design process. Because he understands our vision, we trust the selections he presents us with and feel confident that the overall outcome will come together beautifully. Al Lovas, our Superintendent, has been great to work with as well. He has been flexible and accommodating with changes we have made and always available when needed. Our project is on time, making great progress and looks amazing so far. We would and have highly recommended Vince and Normandy to several friends and neighbors."

August Limited
Design-Build Firms in Barrington Hills, IL
"We had Hough Construction do a bath remodel. They did an excellent job. We were pleased the way the project turned out and it came in on budget. We had a few changes in the project and they were able to accommodate us easily. They are very innovative with creative ideas. The workmen are trustworthy, talented, communicative and very easy to work with. Sue is always accessible and answers her phone. Follow up is great. We will be hiring them again for a master bath remodel and updating in the great room. Prices are competitive as would be expected of a quality contractor."

BDS Design Build Remodel
Design-Build Firms in Barrington Hills, IL
"BDS construction did an amazing job "bringing to life" a vision we had for our dining room. Customized beams (workers cut and assembled these outside in the middle of winter!), wainscoting and paint were included in our project. The workers were neat and very "perfectionistic" in their painting technique and in the care taken to keep our home clean while working on the project. It is now my favorite room in the house. in addition, we had immediate help in partially finishing our basement ( to separate play area from utilities) after a house fire. Our home has very low ceilings (home is over 100 years) and we thought we could never finish or partially finish the space. With a small space to work with, BDS framed and put up dry wall including three different types of custom doors to provide access to the furnace, laundry facilities and work space. BDS once again worked with our ideas offering many options design and price. Overall, the work was completed in neat and timely manner, communication was excellent, and the collaboration of ideas for our final design was great!"

Leader Builders Corp.
Design-Build Firms in Barrington Hills, IL
"I have partnered with Leader Builders, and Pete, on many projects and I love how they always work to fulfill their client's dreams even on the tightest of budgets. I think their worldly make-up serves them well in finding interesting ways to incorporate new room concepts and material selections to achieve very fresh and modern looks. Of course they are even more inspiring on projects were the budget is expanded. Their managers are always paired with the project that best suits the individual client and never have I seen a homeowner not thrilled with their full-service contracting process. I look forward to continuing our partnership."

"We are in the process of doing an addition with a new kitchen and dining area. The design is beautiful and all of the employees have been wonderful to work with. Our only complaint is that the project is moving slower than we were told to expect and days have gone by with no progress. We are anxious to finish! Pictures available upon request!"

What is a design-build firm?


Design-build firms take on the responsibilities of architects, contractors and construction companies, all under one roof. These full-service firms focus on a streamlined design-build process — from the initial design to the estimating phase to physical construction — in the hope of creating an efficient experience for both the client and the company. Because the entire project is happening within one company, Barrington Hills design-build firms are able to overlap the design and construction phases of the project, which often speeds up the project significantly. In addition, these firms work to minimize risks for the project owner through single-point responsibility contracts. However, depending on the firm, you may still want to contact an interior designer or architect to help create the exact look you want. Here are some related professionals and vendors to complement the work of design-build firms: Interior Designers & Decorators, Landscape Architects & Landscape Designers, Architects & Building Designers, Photographers.

Before deciding on a residential design-and-build company in Barrington Hills, IL, think about what you want from your new home. Do you want a large kitchen for entertaining? Do you need several bedrooms for children and guests? Do you want a finished basement for extra space or storage? Look for Barrington Hills design-builders that specialize in the areas you're looking for. Budget is obviously a determining factor in the outcome of your project. To make sure you stay within your means, consider making a must-have list and a wish list. Gauge where the estimates are falling to determine which design-build contract can realistically strike the balance between the two.

Questions to ask a prospective Barrington Hills design-builder:


  • How long have you been in the design-build construction business?
  • How many projects like mine have you completed?
  • Who will be working on the project?
  • Are the workers employees or subcontractors?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • Who is your designer, and what are his or her qualifications?
  • Are your employees licensed and insured?
  • How do you charge, and what does that include?
  • Can you give me a written estimate?
  • What do your services include?
  • When can this job get done?
  • What happens when cost exceeds the budget? What about changes to materials or labor pricing?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any important considerations or concerns you foresee with this project?
