What Can RL Do For You


RL Builders is a custom home contractor dedicated to total customer service. We build on Chicago’s Gold Coast & in Oak Brook, Burr Ridge, Hinsdale, Naperville, Palos Park, New Lenox, Mokena, Frankfort, Homer Glen, Orland Park, Lemont, Shorewood & Channahon Illinois. We’ve been everywhere and have done everything. From huge commercial jobs to fire restorations; from multi-million dollar estates to kitchen renovations. Nothing is beyond our experience and if it is, we have the resources to find someone who can help.  Construction involves many processes and skills to attain complete customer satisfaction so General Contractors must do more than sit in their office and schedule showing up only at coffee time. You must run your job and be present to ensure good work. We manage hands on so we manage on site. We are always looking to prepare the job ahead for the next tradesmen coming in. We want to make sure they have what they need to do their jobs without conflict or delay. Management is about getting answers for questions right away to keep everything moving forward because miscommunications can cost money and delay time schedules.
