The Finishing Chicago Edge -- Done Right, On Time, On Budget.

Finishing Chicago Contractors are right for the job.

If you’re a general contractor or builder, you’ve got deadlines. Everything depends on finding the right sub-contractors for the job, at the right price—fast. And Finishing Chicago can help you, at no cost. We put you in touch with experienced subcontractors who are qualified for your project -- and who return bids promptly! So you have one less thing to worry about.

Ramp Up and Get Done. Fast.

Save time and mobilize for projects faster when you tap into our network of 124 qualified contractors in Chicagoland. We’ve done the due diligence for you -- all our members are pre-screened, trained, licensed, bonded, insured and experienced in the paint, wall covering and glass trades. Whether your project is …

  • public-sector or private
  • construction, maintenance, remodeling, or renovation
  • office space, retail, hotel, hospital, school, or heavy infrastructure

… we can help you get it done.

Save with Safety

When you hire a Finishing Chicago member, you can reduce your insurance costs and your risk. Because you get a contractor who is licensed, bonded, and insured, with all of them carrying at least $2 million in liability coverage. That’s one less thing for you to worry about. And most important, you get a contractor trained in safety. In more than 120 years of finishing Chicagoland, Peoria, and Illinois areas, we’ve found that safety doesn’t just save lives. It saves money. Our Zero-Accident culture reduces liability, increases productivity, and lowers expense modification (MOD) rates. Every Finishing Chicago member completes rigorous safety training that includes:

  • OSHA 10 and 30
  • First Aid / CPR
  • Confined Space
  • Ladders & Scaffolding
  • Aerial Work Platform
  • Fall Protection
  • Lead Awareness
  • Hazard Communication

As a result, Finishing Chicago contractors deliver productivity you can depend on.

Quality Counts

But our training doesn’t stop at safety. All Finishing Chicago members are required to master cutting-edge technology and the latest techniques of their craft. Every member completed 3,200 hours of classroom learning and job-site training. Just take a look at some of the areas we train our employees on:

  • Blueprint Training
  • Foreman Training
  • Lead Abatement
  • Equipment Maintenance
  • Surface Preparation

Teamwork -- it’s in Our DNA

Finishing Chicago has built strong relationships with every skilled trade in Chicagoland, to make sure every part of your project goes smoothly. Our members drive your project’s success by

  • attending pre-project meetings
  • communicating clearly with project manager and other trades
  • fully understanding the scope of your work.

And because we are one of the last trades to leave a project site, we know how schedules can change -- and we can adapt to meet your deadlines.

Leading the Way with LEED®

Sustainability is more than just a good idea. On many projects, it’s a requirement. That's why our contractors understand and implement green standards correctly. The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction, and operation of high-performance green buildings. With a Finishing Chicago professional on board, your project will comply with LEED standards -- while staying on budget and schedule.

There’s No Substitute for Experience

We’ve learned a few things during 101 years of serving Chicagoland. We know that painting a bridge on the Eisenhower demands different skills than painting an office in the Merc, for example. We know that commercial buildings require different treatments than housing tracts. And we know public projects must conform to different standards than privately-funded ones.

Bottom line:

We thrive on highly technical and complex projects. Whether it’s remodeling a clean room in pharmaceutical manufacturing, or painting a water tower 120 feet tall, a Finishing Chicago contractor can get it done.
