Aloha Construction Widens Their Service to the Midwest

Aloha Construction, Inc. has been in the roofing and siding business in Northern Illinois and the surrounding areas since 2008. As a family owned business, they have seen positive growth serving all of Illinois and Southern Wisconsin. In 2015 they opened an office in Bloomington, which quickly became nearly as busy as their Lake Zurich Headquarters location. Recently they have released a new website aimed at more easily providing clients the expert help they need. They are also expanding their services with the launch of an interior restoration service.

Aloha Construction’s CEO and President, David A. Farbaky, is pleased with the company’s growth through the years. In 2013 they completed 7,000 projects, but this year that number was over 20,000 projects. Farbaky has explained that this year is all about making life easier for the residents in the areas they service. Recently that has included helping customers in Northern Illinois who experienced damage from hail, high wind and storms. However, they are excited to move beyond roofing, siding and gutters to interior services.

They have unofficially aided homeowners with remodeling services since they opened, but Aloha Construction has decided it’s time to put their experience to work with a stand alone team dedicated to interior restoration service. This new branch of their business will be located near their Lake Zurich Headquarters and will focus on restoration and remodeling. Their interior restoration services will include things like water extraction, natural disaster aide, and clean-ups. Their remodeling experts will also be able to remodel kitchens, bathrooms and basements.

Aloha Construction is bonded and trusted, and proudly serves the midwest with their insured General Contractors. They offer free roof inspections and a 10 year craftsmanship warranty. Their services include installation of doors, gutters, insulation, siding, Soffit, Stucco and windows. They also clean and waterproof roofs, along with repairs.
