Custom Built Homes

The whole experience was overwhelming but Peter and his team were always there to explain any questions that we had! We would build again with Scholl Construction. We are so happy with our custom built home…  just love it! Thank you Peter and your rockstar team!
John and Cathy – Woodstock, IL

The management of Scholl Construction was very professional and strived to ensure our satisfaction especially when things did not go as planned. Overall we were pleased with the level of work with their contractors. The communications from Dave and Pete to meet our timelines and keeping me informed were great. We would definitely recommend them and have done so already.
Tony B. – McHenry, IL

I would most certainly recommend you to anyone considering building a custom built home. You did a nice, clean, quality job on our house and we are very pleased. Feel free to list me as a reference.
Dave  –  Huntley, IL

We built our home during a time when real estate took a hard hit which in turn meant we had less money for our custom built, dream home. Peter worked with us closely to make our dollar stretch as far as we could make it go.
Jim and Debby C. – Elgin, IL

Scholl construction worked with us from beginning to end to build us a house of our dreams. Peter was very organized and his subcontractors were great. Our custom built home was built to specs with in budget.

Home Additions and Extensive Home Remodeling

I was satisfied with everything. The quality of the workmanship was great. It was a difficult job and they were outstanding. We could not have been happier with the workmanship. It was an absolutely beautiful job.
Rose and Shae – Johnsburg, IL

This is the second time I’ve hired Scholl Construction. Excellent quality, excellent workmanship. It was a real pleasure working with them this past year!
Shirley H. –  Algonquin, IL

We were most satisfied with the frequent contact from Peter Scholl. He oversaw the project and met with us every step of the way. We had countless changes as we discovered more work that needed to be done. They did a great job and will use them for any other projects. We have confidence in them and depended on them completely.
Al and Dorthy F. – Crystal Lake, IL

Scholl Construction exceeded our expectations in every way. We started with a loose plan and Peter and his crews were able to make our kitchen remodeling dreams become a reality all within our budget. Communication was great from start to finish. We were most satisfied with their flexibility. We strayed from our original plans a few times and they were able to make adjustments on the fly. Fantastic job all around! We love our new kitchen!
Joe F. – Woodstock, IL

We are happy with the finished product. Peter Scholl provided excellent communication when some issues came up along the way and we appreciated his strong desire to make sure we were satisfied with their work. Somehow he always managed to keep calm. He responded to our questions or concerns quickly. Demo crew, electrician, tile work and plumber were all great.
Meghan and Doug D. – Long Grove, IL

Communication was always prompt and clear. We knew what was expected of us and when your people would be coming and going, and what they would accomplish. Your vendors did good and timely work; especially Brian, the tile guy, who was extra patient and detail oriented as he laid our patterned tile floor. Scholl’s ability to anticipate issues and potential delays kept our project clipping along. We will be using Scholl again and recommending them to friends/family/colleagues. Their performance was marked by unanticipated professionalism.
Dan and Kathy R.  – Crystal Lake, IL

Peter Scholl is an outstanding and dedicated building contractor. In a world with cheats and charlatans, Mr. Scholl is a rare honest and hard-working man. The job was done professionally and in a timely fashion. Any problems that were encountered were overcome in a transparent and expedited fashion. I have recommended him to my best friends and will continue to do so.
Chris and Megan S. – Palatine, IL

Scholl put together a team of competent subcontractors and managed them efficiently. Pete was quick and courteous in responding to questions, requests and necessary adjustments.
Greg and Marianne M. –  Wilmette, IL

Thanks for the advice on what products would give us the best value and the following up making sure everything was done to our liking. You did an excellent job in making everything blend in, like it was originally.
Arthur B.  – Huntley, IL

Nice Company. Attention to detail. Always responded quickly to phone calls and questions. Took care of all minor problems at completion of job. Reasonably priced. Nice to work with.
Jodi and Jay A.  –  Crystal Lake, IL

I enjoyed working with Pete and Dave with Scholl Construction. Pete was organized and professional. Dave was a great problem solver and always eager to ensure that the customer was happy. I have, and will continue to, recommend Scholl Construction to friends looking to create a home addition or remodel a large project in their home.

Scholl has all of the administrative tools of a big construction company; contracts, estimating, change orders, insurance policies, etc. With those tools they are very flexible and capable of making changes quickly and communicating them to the customer in a clear and concise manner.
Chris and Megan J. – Algonquin, IL

We had a difficult time deciding whether or not to move forward with a home addition on our old, historic house. We loved its character but needed more space to make it functional for our family. We didn’t want to ruin any of its charm and worried that the addition would not be seamless.

From our first meeting, we felt like you understood what we wanted to do and how big of a deal this was for our family. We appreciated how detailed you were through every phase of the project both with our budget and ideas for the house. We always felt like we were on the same page with you and that our communication was constant. You and your sub-contractors were respectful of us, which is important with a three and five-year-old, and more significantly we were amazed with the results. Thank you for making our house feel so special and tackling our big project. We LOVE living here.
Tim and Beth L. – Crystal Lake, IL

We are very pleased with the extensive home remodel that Scholl Construction completed for us. Peter was always very prompt in getting back to us on quotes, questions, problems, etc. Peter was also very accessible by phone or e-mail. The tradesmen who completed the various phases of construction were not only skilled, but also friendly and very nice to have around. We particularly were grateful to John, the carpenter, who helped redesign our bar plan. The workers cleaned up after themselves and kept the site neat.  Peter worked with us to make changes when some of our plans were too costly for us.  He came up with more affordable alternatives.  Scholl Construction was a pleasure to work with.  We are very happy with our new living area.
Don and Joan C. – Oakwood Hills, IL

I used Scholl Construction on a previous extensive home remodel, and when this project came up, there was no hesitation to call them for additional work. I really enjoyed working with Pete and his crew.

Very good workmanship, and Pete was very engaged in supervising the project to ensure the work was high quality, and timely.

Scholl Construction was a great partner in the workmanship, professionalism, and cost effective building contractor. I would strongly recommend them. They are a “class act” when it comes to completion and business partner.
Jack H. – Crystal Lake, IL

Peter Scholl helped us so much with our addition to an older house we purchased.  We needed someone to coordinate all the different trades and to see they were on the job when we needed them.  Peter did all the calling to make sure the sub contractors were on the job when they were supposed to be there.  He was on site every time some work was being done.  He got all the important trades, such as concrete workers, backfill workers, plumbers, carpenters, electricians, heating & air conditioning companies.  He arranged for the building inspectors to come approve the progress.  We never could have finished this project as efficiently and in the shortest time possible! Peter is a conscientious and very knowledgeable person and went out of his way to help us get moved into our home.
Leonard and Dolores B. – Genoa City, WI

I have dealt with other firms in the past and would have to say that Scholl Construction was a breath of fresh air. The work that was done on my condo in Chicago was top notch and the professionalism everyone showed was fantastic. The most impressive thing, other than the completed job, was the communication and follow up I received from Scholl Construction.  I highly recommend them to anyone and will definitely use them again in the future.
Andy W. – Chicago, IL

We’re enjoying the porch that you upgraded for us. Betty and I talked recently how that was one of the best things we’ve done with our home. That space before wasn’t used all that much, and now it opened up our living space so nicely and it’s my spot for camping out to read the paper, relax and watch my sports on TV. I watched the Blackhawks game out there last night. We really enjoy it. The stove in the winter time works out so well. It heats up that space perfectly and it’s fun to sit out there with the windows opened up and watch the snow fall and enjoy the stove.
Roy – Algonquin, IL

We had a very good experience with Scholl Construction Company. Having never done a home renovation project before, we didn’t know what to expect. Pete was always available to answer questions and was on site often to monitor and check progress. Thank you Peter, for everything! We love our new space!
Ken J. – Bull Valley, IL

Peter was on top of the project from day one. He came every day to make sure the workers were doing the job in a timely manner. He corrected any construction problems before they were even started. We wanted our room completed for a big family celebration date, and he had the job done on time. It was perfect. We did not need to call him back to the job for any punch list. We didn’t have one.
Janet and Jim C. – Vernon Hills, IL

We were very pleased with our extensive home remodel. Things went pretty smoothly and the project was finished within the estimated time frame. All those who worked on our house were professional and personable. And the office staff was great – especially with all the phone calls and e-mails we made and sent. Our experience with Scholl was positive and we would gladly use them again.
Ken and Cindy R. – Crystal Lake, IL

The work was completed in a timely and professional manner. At the end of each day, all of the workers cleaned up all debris. I was very impressed with the quality of the work. All sub contractors showed up on time and ready to work. The construction project was completed on time and within budget.
Tami R. – Glenview, IL

We have lived in the house – new home really, for it now functions completely differently.  We are extremely pleased with the changes in terms of how the new layout works and also the quality of the work.  We have had no problems since our final sign-off. We are impressed especially with the quality of the woodwork and attention to structural needs.  We were also impressed with the crew; everyone was so competent and a pleasure to work with.
Catherine F. and Kevin S. – Crystal Lake, IL

Great work on all projects.
Kevin S. – Lombard, IL

Peter Scholl was a great help to us in determining the best way to update the curb appeal of our home.  He is very knowledgeable and up to date on the latest materials and styles.  Peter was always just a phone call away and was on the site whenever needed.  We relied on his expertise in finishing our makeover in a timely manner and to our satisfaction.   We added to the job, more than once, as it was in process and Peter was very courteous and ‘hung in there’ with us with the utmost patience.   The front of our home went from plain and boring to different and beautiful.  To say that we are pleased with the results would be nothing short of an understatement.   We always get such great comments from neighbors and passersby.  Not only would we hire Scholl Construction without hesitation in the future, Peter is currently in the process of writing up our next contract.
Susan and Barry S. – Lake In The Hills, IL

The job was well planned, well executed. Fair price and professional service at every stage.
Chris and Michele H. – Fox River Grove, IL

Job was completed in a timely fashion; have had many complements on the deck.
Ron R. – Elgin, IL

My hardwood floor is wonderful. I have gotten so many compliments on the look. My kitchen and dining room actually appear bigger! From start to finish the job was very professional. Clean-up was terrific too! Thanks for such a great job!
Sandy Z. – Elgin, IL

We are very pleased with our multi-bathroom remodel project. Scholl Construction is a reliable company and preforms quality work.
Aimee & Richard D – Crystal Lake, IL

Scholl Construction delivered quality work, finished on time and within our planned budget. We would use them again without a doubt.
Jim & Jill P. – Woodstock, IL

I’m most satisfied with the frequent contact from Peter Scholl. He oversaw the project and met with us every step of the way. We had countless changes as we discovered more work that needed to be done. It was supposed to be a small repair, but we started removing portions of the wall with more damage behind. So we had to replace the wall and some windows. But he kept us updated. We understood the cost differential, and they stuck within the quotes.

They did a great job. We’ll use them for any other projects. We have confidence in them and depend on them completely.
Al and Dorthy F. – Carpentersville, IL

I heard about them from the architect that I did my first project with. They were very easy to work with to get what I wanted. He’s done two projects for me, and if I need another one done, I’ll call him.
Jack F. – Green Oaks, IL

The work was completed in a timely, quality, professional manner with concern for both the workmanship itself and my customer needs. Everyone with whom I dealt with was both friendly and knowledgeable. Any calls were addresses promptly. I would definitely recommend Scholl Construction to others.
Jennifer K. – Woodstock, IL

Crews were very professional and prompt.  Any minor problems we encountered were handled immediately to our satisfaction.
Jim J. – Algonquin, IL

Job well planned, well executed. Fair price and professional service at every stage.
Chris H – Fox River Grove, IL

Commercial Construction and Commercial Remodeling

Many thanks for the fine and very efficient work. You are a true professional, Peter, and I look forward not to just the next project but maybe more, as God allows! You worked the way building contractors should: efficient, concise and professional. Warmly,  Dr. Todd – Crystal Lake, IL

Earlier this year I had the opportunity to move my business into a building I recently purchased.  I originally accepted 3 separate bids for the project.  Scholl Construction’s bid was the most detailed, it was the clearest and easiest to understand and by a happy coincidence it was the lowest. I had a tight timeline to meet and Peter Scholl assured me it was not a problem.  During the project Pete was great at keeping me informed as to what was going on and what the next step would be.  He made plenty of suggestions that saved me time and money.  When we did run into the inevitable unforeseen issue, he had an answer for it in no time.

In the end, my project was completed in time, as promised to save me from paying another month’s rent and also shortening the construction loan phase.  In the end it turned out beautiful, professionally done without any mishaps, sticker shocks or misunderstandings.

I would recommend Scholl Construction to anyone. I will not be looking anywhere else for a general contractor in the future.
Chuck S. –  Algonquin, IL

I want to say it was a real pleasure to work with you and your team at Scholl Construction. They were all excellent craftsmen and more importantly, a pleasure to deal with.
Jeff –  Palatine, IL

Our client is extremely happy with the services he (Peter Scholl) has provided and his professionalism.  On several occasions they have expressed how comfortable they are working with Peter, and are looking forward to starting construction.
Brian K. and Andrea K. – Architects

Working with Scholl Construction and all of the sub contractors was the BEST experience I have ever had when having a major construction project completed.  Every part of the project was completed in a timely fashion. The schedule for completion of each step of the project was followed nearly to perfection.  The area of construction was left in a neat and tidy condition each day.  Employees and patients were able to use the entryway during construction without any safety concerns.  Every concern I had during the construction was addressed in a timely and efficient manner.  Scholl Construction gets a ‘10’ in every aspect of delivery of the project!!!  Thanks Peter.
Dr. Fred F. DDS – Crystal Lake, IL

I was pleased with the way your people did both of my jobs, and I am happy that we had no problems. You can certainly use me as a reference.
George – Woodstock, IL

I first contacted Scholl Construction to bid for a job at my Crystal Lake Depot that included a Depot Office and Warehouse remodel and upgrade. The time frame to completion for this project was extremely tight and a complete office remodel was needed due to moldy carpet.

Scholl Construction handled everything beautifully. Communication between Peter Scholl and not only me, but the staff at the depot was second to none. There were even a few items that did not work the way I had expected and I needed some rework to be completed. Peter handled the rework without complaint and we were able to negotiate and agree to a price that did not hurt my budget or hurt his costs.

After the first project was completed I had a complete parking lot and dock grading issue project at another Depot in Ottawa, IL. The parking lot needed to be lowered 8” to support the loading and unloading of delivery trucks. It all needed to be paved in concrete. An employee parking lot needed to be established and paved as well. The other large issue with this parking lot was grandfathered for sheet draining and proper drainage as required by the City of Ottawa.

Peter worked tirelessly negotiating with the city and civil engineers to develop a plan that the City of Ottawa would approve and still keep the project within my extremely tight budget. After my project was approved and Peter went to obtain the permit, the City of Ottawa changed their minds and requested additional work to be completed.  I figured the additional work would be way over budget and I would have to request additional funds. He was able to negotiate lower rates from his contracted construction workers in order to maintain my budget and still make the project come out a success and completed 2 weeks ahead of schedule which was critical because Fall was quickly approaching.

Peter worked tirelessly on my 24,000 plus sq. ft. parking lot project. His efforts to get the City of Ottawa to approve the drawings and issue a permit were again second to none. I had worked with 2 other contractors on this project. The first contractor was a very large company that could not meet my budget needs. In addition the contractor would not spend any time working with the City of Ottawa.

The second contractor was a local contractor from Ottawa and he backed out of the project. Scholl Construction was the only building contractor I could find that could do the job and I have to say that I was lucky to have him do the job.

During the Ottawa Parking Lot Project I had another project at my plant in Rockford that involved rebuilding a dock. The dock level was too steep and the needed to be leveled out. In addition the hand rail and edge of dock leveler was falling off the dock and the cantilevered edge was starting to crack and crumble. I had received quotes from 2 other local contractors and Scholl Construction was the most competitive bid. Not only was the bid well within my budget, but he was able to complete the project while he was working on the Ottawa Project. The project was completed within 2 weeks which was 1 week sooner than he had planned. This was critical because this dock was 1 of only 2 semi docks at this location and critical that it was back on line ASAP.

The 4th project that Scholl Construction completed for me was building 6 private offices at the Arlington Heights facility. Peter was able to develop a proposal for the complete project extremely quickly. His bid was lower and more detailed than the other 3 contractors that submitted proposals for the project. After bidding the project the local management wanted to make changes to the scope of work by adding a door through the concrete block fire wall.

The work was done flawlessly and fast with minimal disturbances to the admin office areas. Scholl’s construction crews were able to cut the hole into the admin offices without leaving a huge mess or disrupting office operations. This was critical because the office was also occupied with a sales staff that had to make calls to customers.

The project was completed on time and under budget. Peter’s communication was again second to none during this project. Any changes that needed to be made were communicated quickly. He also worked tirelessly to please not only me, but the local management as well. Pleasing local management was critical because the other contractors that submitted bids were obtained by the local management and one contractor was a relative of a sales associate.

I handle 13 plants and 37 depots across 7 states. I have dealt with countless amounts of contractors; some good, some bad. Scholl Construction is second to none. Peter Scholl’s attention to detail, communication abilities, integrity and honesty are impeccable. Scholl Construction’s versatility is unbeatable. He was able to do heavy construction and then turn around and able to do exceptional office finish work.

I will continue to utilize the services of Scholl Construction for many years to come and I believe that I have established an excellent working relationship with Peter Scholl.
Todd R. – Aramark, Rockford, IL

Workmanship was top notch and the workers were very pleasant and courteous. They were very neat and cleaned up after completion. We would highly recommend your company for any work.
Frank C. – Crystal Lake, IL

Excellent job!  Scholl Construction did an outstanding job of coordinating this project.  There was no interruption in our operations.  The job was done quickly and professionally.  Thank you, Pete and crew, for a job well done.
Keith M. – Huntley Fire Dept., Huntley, IL

Peter was very pleasant to work with. He made sure everything was done to meet our requirements. The bathrooms look beautiful. We’ve received so many comments on how nice they look. Overall they did a wonderful job for us.
