Meet The Trades
As a general contractor in the North suburbs of Chicago, Forest Glen Construction Company manages your remodeling or home addition project from design idea, to architectural drawing, to permit application, through construction and completion. The construction work is done by sub vendors hired by us to complete the tasks. Our job site manager schedules and coordinates the activities of the various tradespeople; plumbers, electricians, drywall installers, carpenters, and others. What this means is that you, the homeowner, can relax knowing that your project is well managed and efficiently completed.
Let's meet the trades starting with the ones who manage the guts of your home. The plumbers and electricians work on what are known in the industry as the "mechanicals" of your home. They fill in the spaces between the walls framed by the carpenters. Once the mechanicals are installed and tested, the walls are closed by covering them with drywall. Once that portion is completed, the carpenters can add trim around windows and doors and floors can be installed, whether they be wood, tile, or carpet. Then, it is time for painting and decorating your new space.
