  • “The job was completed on time (in 5 weeks) and on budget. Design Build 4U was very responsive to my concerns and questions. The finished product is really very beautiful. Overall I’m very happy with my new kitchen.”
    Elizabeth S., on North Rockwell

  • “The bathroom design aspect was what impressed me the most. They were neither the cheapest nor the most expensive, but their detail was worth the money spent. We spent a lot of time planning the details and had a clear picture of the design we wanted before we started the project – our bath remodel was a mirror image of the design.”
    Lela D., Wrigleyville

  • “I got just what I wanted. They worked with you to design the piece – then the finished product looks just like the drawing.”
    Carla S., on North Kenmore

  • “When all is said and done, it was tough to see them go. I would recommend them to anyone.”
    Danielle K., on North Sheffield

  • “I was blown away by their honesty and recommendations…”
    Janet G., on West Fulton

  • “I wanted to remodel my “1950′s style” bungalow bathroom. All I decided was that I wanted subway tile & a pedestal sink. The other thing I knew was that I didn’t want to have to run around to various stores to try & decide about quality, style, & price. I got my 3 estimates as advised. I decided to go with Design Build 4U because of the professionalism, presentation (with very detailed information). Because of my positive experience, the high quality of workmanship & design consultation, the professionalism, courtesy, & friendliness of the entire team I would highly recommend Design Build 4U for a remodeling project.”
    Adrian C., on Agatite

  • “The interview process (and indeed the entire job) was so professional and involving of the client in every phase of the design. Design Build 4u’s team of architects and designers were superb, as were the subcontractors hired to execute the design. If we had a question at any stage of the design and construction, we received a return phone call within 30 minutes on most occasions. We have so enjoyed our new spaces and are thrilled to show it off to our friends and neighbors.”
    Fred H., Hyde Park

  • “We interviewed several contractors but went with Design Build 4U because they seemed to understand my need for attention and assistance with the details. Overall I am very pleased with my bathroom (it’s beautiful!) and I would definitely consider using them again.”
    Karen N., on West Pratt

  • “Design Build 4U has an innovative design process for eliciting the vision of clients like us who couldn’t realize their vision on their own. We also needed a full-service contractor to provide comprehensive project management, and Design Build 4U handled that seamlessly, so that we didn’t have to worry about anything. We’re very happy with the kitchen they produced: it’s a visual gem, and much better to cook in than before. We would strongly recommend them to anyone who wants to do a similar project.”
    Kathryn C., Evanston

  • “The Design Build 4U team exceeded my expectations by finishing the project ahead of schedule and on the budget presented to me at the outset. They worked closely with me to determine my personal design preferences and then incorporated them into the design. I am very happy with the finished project and will definitely use Design Build 4U for future projects. If you are looking for design help and/or a general contractor, your search is over – this is the team for you!”
    Kellie S., on North Broadway

  • “We were very satisfied with the design process that took a lot of the details off our plate while fulfilling our vision for our kitchen for our family of 5 with young children. Design Build 4U were easy to work with and were good at taking our likes and dislikes and ideas to create a design without a lot of our time or requiring us to go visit store after store. After some discussion, they brought us three options and we were able to pick and choose from these to create our new kitchen. We really wanted it done right and did not want details left unattended and we did not want to have to become experts in kitchen remodeling to get it done right. With Design Build 4U, there was a good partnership with effective and clear communication and punctuality that we have not regularly experienced with other contractors.”
    Laura S., on Newport

  • “The design phase allows clients to voice preferences and to discuss ideas regarding the project in detail. The client first receives a “personal design book” showing these preferences, then a “design options book” with a detailed layout of 3 possible designs. Along with the designs are cost options for materials. Clients can select materials from any of the 3 options according to one’s desired budget. If you are looking for high quality work that satisfies a perfectionist, without the agony of researching and purchasing materials, arranging delivery, and coordinating the various phases of installation, then Design Build 4U is the place to go.“
    Linda S., Near Foster & Pulaski

  • “Design Build 4U is a very rare home remodeling company because they were so concerned and connected with my wants and needs. They paid extra close attention to detail so that the bathroom design and the completed bathroom remodel were almost identical. I believed them when they set a time schedule and plan for our project and they completed it very close to that initial plan. Design Build 4U was very reliable, punctual and the team was actually excited about our project.”
    Liz M., Chicago

  • “They really worked with me to come up with great kitchen design ideas. They designed the type of kitchen that I wanted, not the one they wanted to build. They do not cut corners and they only use quality products – I love my kitchen makeover – I would use them and only them for any work I have to do in the future.”
    Madeline W., on West Ardmore

  • “Design Build 4U is fantastic! My boyfriend and I both work long hours and wanted to find a full-service company to complete our remodels, from consultation on design to construction. They did exactly that. Other companies that we got estimates from did not include design work (which Design Build 4U does if you use them for the construction also), and would have required us to find, purchase and transport all the materials to our house. They were even able to accommodate our request to schedule both remodels at the same time, with two crews working, so there would be less disruption to our lives. We are thrilled with the remodeled bathrooms. They look even better than we expected and are completely unique and our style, something we would not have achieved without Design Build 4U.”
    Maggie S., on North Paulina

  • “The Design Build 4U team did a great job of remodeling my master bathroom completely and installing a new ceramic tile backsplash in my kitchen. The big advantage of this company is the design process combined with the general contractor skills.”
    Mary W., on South Plymouth

  • “I recently completed a bathroom renovation with “Design Build 4U” and am extremely happy with not only the finished product but the entire process. I selected this firm because they provided design assistance as well as contracting services. The professionalism and quality of workmanship I received from this firm was outstanding and I plan to call on them again for any future projects.”
    Sondra R., on North Lake Shore Drive

  • “We have nothing but great things to say about Design Build 4U. They are a great residential contractor. They did a complete home remodel for us. They do what they say they are going to do, they are on time; they really care for the customer and their needs, not penny-pinching to earn a few extra bucks for themselves.”
