Chicago's Premier Design Build Firm | 3x Top 500 Remodeler
Areté Renovators is a 20-year-old family business specializing in interior residential and commercial remodeling, primarily design and build. Areté has successfully completed over two thousand remodeling projects throughout the Chicagoland area, working in 60% of Chicago’s downtown high rises. We have built strong partnerships with building management allowing us to specialize in high-rise remodeling and become a preferred partner for property management companies throughout Chicago. Areté means “quality” in Ancient Greek. Since 2002, we have built a reputation of quality and workmanship, customer service, project management, and reliability. Brothers, Igor and Davor, started Areté in 2001 along with their father, Jovo, who is a master carpenter. Their hope was that their father could market his skills in carpentry and custom millwork and work fewer hours to make ends meet for their family. Igor and Davor left their careers in finance in the mid-2000s to join Areté full time and grow the business and team. Together with Areté The Art of Design, our premier showroom and design center, Areté Renovators provides general contracting and design services for single bathroom and kitchen remodels, full gut rehabs, and a combination of condo units, commercial storefront and lobby renovations, additions, and new construction. We manage all aspects of the project including obtaining city permits, completing association paperwork for project approval, design services, purchasing and delivering of materials, installation, and maintenance.
