About Follyn Builders & Developers, LLC

Follyn Builders is a family-owned company specializing in custom-built, high-end single-family homes, and condominiums in the greater Chicagoland area since 2001.

We are proud to be a custom home builder in Chicago neighborhoods like Lakeview, Roscoe Village, Lincoln Square, and North Center as well as nearby suburbs like Park Ridge, Glenview, and Wilmette.

We are proud to be a Chicago custom new home builder, bringing our integrity and professionalism to every custom-built single-family home, condominium, and office we build and renovate in and around Chicago.

Service is our hallmark. From site selection to design and material selection, Follyn Builders believes that good communication is the cornerstone to an amazing finished product and an astounding custom built home.

When you call, you will speak to a decision maker, not a message taker. We are custom home builders which means you call the shots.

Building custom homes and additions in Chicago is our focus and our passion. The role of the general contractor of your dream is a role we take seriously.

We know there are many general contractors available around Chicago -- we want to be the choice as general contractor of your custom home.

We are proud of the fine Chicago homes we have built throughout the city and suburbs. As a Chicago new home builder, we know the importance of quality, custom-built, single-family homes. Neighborhoods should be built one home at a time, not mass-produced like a giant cookie cutter.

Don't hesitate; contact us today, and work with us to build your unique, spectacular custom home in Chicago, Glenview, Lincoln Square, or Roscoe Village.

If you are building in Lincoln Park or Lincolnshire, we want to work with you!

Question and answer

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. Please ask questions! We welcome questions, inquiries, ideas, off-the-wall suggestions, wish lists and "gotta haves". The process should be collaborative - we want you to LOVE the finished product so much you recommend us to everyone you know!

Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?

A. You can always find a guy that will do a job cheap - when it comes to your home this is not always the best bet. There are numerous codes and best practices that should be followed for your project, to make sure your family is safe and your project will last for years to come. If someones price is too good to be true, they are cutting corners somewhere!

Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?

A. Ask for references, ask for photos of past projects, ask for insurance and appropriate licensing. Most of all make sure you have a good relationship with your contractor - you are going to be talking to them a LOT over the course of your project make sure they understand your vision!

Q. What important information should buyers have thought through before seeking you out?

A. What is the scope of the project? A kitchen remodel or a whole house from the ground up? What are the "must-haves" for the project and what are the items you would like to have if possible? What are you willing to splurge on and what items are not that important to you?

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. We take enormous pride in what we do and we think it shows in the details. We do not believe in cutting corners on the fundamentals, good bones stand the test of time!
