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

Renovated kitchen

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.

Use our kitchen renovation estimation tool to get a free estimate for your project. Pricing is based on average renovation costs in the Chicago metropolitan area.

Bathroom renovation pricing

Renovated bathroom

In Chicago, the price of a bathroom is between $200 and $500 per square foot. Materials generally represent 50 percent of the total amount.

Bathroom renovations typically take between three and four weeks, including planning, demolition, plumbing, electricity, installation of new equipment, walls, ceilings, tiling, and other finishing. Past Billdr bathroom projects have included the installation of walk-in showers, wall-mounted toilets, and ventilation systems.
