About Us

I'm Slobodan Lohja, founder and President of Durmitor Construction. I was born and raised in this wonderful City of Chicago. Coming from an immigrant family from former Yugoslavia, I had to start working at a very young age. Something like 14 years old. I took labor jobs with friends of the family and through them learned the trades. Believe me, I know what hard work is and I know what the American Dream is. I am living proof that America is still the land of opportunity for honest and hard working individuals.

I pursued a college degree in computer science and studied two years of Spanish. I tried working at a corporate job but that didn't last too long. I realized I loved architecture, building walls, and getting dirty. Point is, I'm educated, no alcohol or drugs here. I went through corporate training regarding work ethics. Today I'm running this successful construction business doing what I love to do, construction! You want someone working on your projects as if they where they're own.

I personally screen my laborers and specialists. I make sure the staff I'm working with have high standards. After all, they will be entering your residence. I guarantee you that piece of mind. I suggest you background check your contractors and do credit reports. That will help you eliminate the cheaters.

I personally manage each project from beginning to end. That includes our first meeting, the estimate, the contract, and architectural designs if needed and lastly, building the project. There are no stand-around supervisors to drive up the cost of your project at Durmitor Construction.

By using our services you can rest assured in the highest quality of work, a clean job, on time completion date and no headaches by dealing with me personally and on a daily basis. We will listen to your needs and work with you to build your ideas and wishes. After all, it's your hard earned money and you should get what you're paying for.

In summary, if you're looking for a new kitchen or bathroom, an addition or just some overdue repairs and you wish for the project to be done correctly the first time and want it to last, simply contact us.

I look forward to meeting you soon, and thanks for visiting my web site!

Warmest Regards,
Slobodan Lohja and the Durmitor Construction team.
