About Us

Dan Thomas, of Dan Thomas Construction, has been involved in almost every aspect of construction since 1965. While still in high school, he worked with his father in the painting business. Later, he also worked for his grandfather’s pipe covering and insulation business. To put himself through college, he continued working in the insulation business along with the family painting business, and graduated from North Central College in Naperville in 1973 with a degree in Environmental Science/Biology, Elementary Education and Sociology/Anthropology.

He had a fleet of 4+ trucks and 18+ painters and began to branch out into remodeling and eventually, general contracting. Moving his business to DuPage County in 1985 he still maintained a presence in Cook County, but began to concentrate on home renovations, additions and new construction. He also began to build relationships with sub-contractors to provide the necessary specialties for his business.

While continuing as a General Contractor, he became involved in insurance restoration work. He is able to provide expertise with Xactimate, a program used by 85% of the insurance companies, agents and adjusters. This program allows him to communicate with insurance companies to provide the most accurate estimates for his clients. Since they both "speak the same language", it is easy for him to adjust and complete estimates. Adapting the Xactimate Software for use in non-insurance construction, leads to more accurate and swifter estimates necessary in today’s fast paced climate.

Additionally, he has received his EPA Certificate in LEAD SAFETY for Renovation, Repair and Painting. Certificate: R-1-19168-10-01292. He also holds a City of Chicago Class E General Contractor’s License. Number TGC018982

Dan is the father of a 21-year-old son attending Hobart, William and Smith Colleges in New York. He has maintained his teaching certificate, and occasionally substitute teaches. He is an avid boater, having owned, operated and maintained everything from a 25 foot sailboat to a 50 foot powerboat.
