We used Billdr to renovate our backyard. The service was highly valuable - key for us was: making the scope clear in terms contractors understood, independent validation of budget...

I cannot recommend the Billdr service enough! They helped scope the project, find the right contractor, manage the project throughout, and then stayed involved until the very end to make sure I was 100% satisfied.

Work with Billdr-certified, licensed general contractors in Chicago
Finding a licensed and insured general contractor with a track record of high-quality work is essential to the success of your renovation project. We have a rigorous process to vet and certify every general contractor in our professional network.
To become certified, general contractors must hold a valid general contractor license from Chicago, valid civil liability insurance of $1,000,000 or more from a qualified policy and provider, a minimum of two years of relevant experience, and supply references from former customers.
Beyond the paperwork, the Billdr team meets with each contractor on active job sites to observe the way they work and make sure they are a good fit for the Billdr network. As we get to know our partners, we build strong trust relationships.

Home renovation pricing
How much does it cost to renovate a house in Chicago?
The price of your renovation depends on the scope of the project. Our Project managers will help you define your project scope and send you a detailed budget estimate before you meet with general contractors.
Kitchen renovation pricing
The costs of a kitchen renovation in Chicago are generally between $250 and $500 per square foot and can take between two to four weeks.
If your renovations do not involve major structural work (e.g. demolition of a load-bearing wall to create an open space) or displacement of plumbing and gas pipes, prices will be lower. When you choose premium materials the costs will go up.
