    Dave Contorno helped us every step of the way to build a quality home that is beautiful and energy-efficient. He had so many great suggestions and ideas as well as resources to draw upon. I'm so glad we went with Dave to build our custom home! We constantly get compliments from neighbors and visitors, and still can't believe that this lovely home is ours!

    David was a huge assest in partnering with me, building a custom home of my dreams. We built a 3400 sq. ft. ranch home in 2007 - Monee, IL with numerous upgrades. The project lasted about 8 months, would have been done sooner if it wasn't for weather delays. David kept the project on time and impressed me with his organization and total home building knowledge that I needed to finish on time and on budget. True testament to my home and David's skills are that after 8 years of living in my home, I still look forward going home everyday to a quality built home that has total usable living area! My experience with David was A+ with one word to define, professional. William Kosic

    David Contorno from Accent CMS in Lisle Illinois recently was my project manager for a commercial renovation. David’s many years of experience in the construction business was a huge asset to my project. David was involved from the preplanning stage to the finished product. His knowledge, input and expertise combined with his professionalism was integral in transforming my building, formerly a furrier, into a therapeutic school. The finished building is a beautiful space for students to learn in a warm and welcoming atmosphere. David’s ability at negotiating the price point of the work that needed to be done ultimately saved me enough money to have the parking lot repaved which was not in my original budget. It was an absolute pleasure working with David on my project.

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

We have a very unique process that allows our customers and prospects the ability to plan for their new home development in advance of construction.  It consists of reviewing the land or helping the clients to find land, providing a site review of the subject property, ballpark estimating, plan development and review, project specifications and final cost out.  All of this is done in the planing phase before going in for permit or securing financing.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

We have been building homes since 1989.  With over 200 plus custom homes and additions completed through various locations of Chicagoland.  The owner is a member of the HBA with certification in Residential Construction Management.
