Restruction General Contractors Chicago Land!

Hi neighbors!

Beautiful day here today in Chicago. Yes, we are back again! While I am here, thought I would tell you about a local company here called Restruction General Contractors. With all the rain lately, one of my neighbors might just need their help.

RGC was founded in 1971 under the name of Scott Brite Inc. It did not become RGC until February 3, 2009. RGC was begun by the Weitzman family in response to the growing desire of families in the Chicago area who had need of property repair (due to fire, flood, and wind damage), restoration, remodeling and maintenance needs. They wanted to make these available to the community through a one trusted provider. RGC does approximately 500 renovations a year. When asked if they do small remodeling jobs, the reply I received was a big YES, as that is often how they start a relationship with their clients. They have a 5 person management staff and 5 Project Managers, who each have a five man crew. They also have hundreds of trades professional on retainer.

They specialize in service for all of Lake, Cook, DuPage, and McHenry counties. They do offer services to Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, and Iowa. How soon can they be out for an emergency call to the local area? They are available 24/7. After you call their information center a RGC personal Project Manager will be in contact with you within minutes. They guarantee to have one of their fleet of trucks dispatched within 2 hours. And another great benefit is RGC works hand in hand with your insurance company to simplify disaster recovery and to make the process as stress free as possible.

With all this rain, have you had any basement flooding? RGC handles problems like this for you. RGC says that most basement flooding occurs due to foundation cracks, poor lot drainage, overflowing gutters, leaking/blocked downspouts, and sump pump failure. And since water will always seek the lowest point, your basement is the target area. Another concern with your basement flooding, or any other leak is mold growth. The World Health Organization (WHO) found that simply living in a damp indoor environment where mold is often present can lead to upper and lower respiratory illness and infections in otherwise healthy children and adults. Other risks include Syspnoea, Asthma development, Allergic Rhinitis, Bronchitis, reduced lung function, wheeze and cough. Mold remediation can take a few hours up to a few days depending on the amount of contamination.

When it comes to smoke and fire damage RGC is the company to call. They start with boarding up the damaged area. They then proceed to removal of smoke residue and cleaning the contents. And last but not least is the rebuilding.

What do they charge for an estimate or consultation? Nothing! Zero! Zilch! Not bad, to receive an estimate or consultation.

You may ask me what type of jobs do they do? This was their response:

It would be easier to list what type of renovations we don’t do, which would be none. We can handle any type of build or renovation, from a studio apartment to a multi-unit building. A short list of all our property services would be:I also wanted to mention the maintenance program they have. For a fee, they will take over any maintenance you need on your home. Even owners of single family homes can live maintenance free with this program. Anything from semi annual safety and maintenance to honey do lists.
