SW Chicago Suburbs Custom Home Builder & Remodeler, Best Of Houzz!
Gander Builders is a custom home builder in the Chicago area specializing in luxury custom homes and remodeling. It could be said that Steve Lecas was born to build homes. He was born in Burbank, Illinois in 1963 to a father that was an avid construction guy. With a degree in Business Management from Eureka College in hand, he built his first home in Frankfort, Illinois. The quality of craftsmanship in this custom home and more that followed established Gander Builder's reputation as the leading luxury home builder in the Chicago area. We take great pride in our final product, knowing that our firm is committed to taking care of the customer with the utmost respect and responsive services required in today’s quality conscious environment. Gander Builders reputation with area tradesmen, village officials and satisfied customers has earned their respect over the years. We work closely with both the client and the trades, guiding them confidently through the design and building process. We are committed to listening to our customer’s needs and suggestions, along with all ideas brought to us by our subcontractors. This concept has allowed us to grow with the changing times and turn out a finished product that each and every participant in the project is proud of. We would love hearing from you to discuss your project or to answer any questions about our previous work.
