Our company was originally founded in 2001 by Wes Bender Sr. as a handyman company, called We’re On The Level. Over the next few years the company maintained its image, until Wes’ sons got involved. The older of the two sons ran a home improvement company in Hawaii and a deck refinishing company here in the Chicagoland area. Meanwhile the other son attended college at NIU, graduating with honors and a business management degree, all while working in the trades to pay for schooling. In 2006 the two brothers joined the company with one goal in mind: to not be like every other contractor.
Once everything was in full swing, the company switched gears from focusing on handyman services to focusing on remodeling and renovations. As the company progressed, we decided to take the next step and focus on even larger scale projects. This is where Bender Building Inc. comes into play. Bender Building is a licensed and insured general contracting company that has the skill and experience to handle any project from the attic to the basement.
As of 2010, Bender Building Inc. and We’re On The Level Inc. are one in the same company. The Bender Building division will focus on all of your larger scale projects such as remodels, additions, build outs, etc. Whereas, We’re On The Level Inc. will be geared towards your smaller home improvement and handyman projects. We are now setup to complete any project you have around your house, we want to build your dreams into reality.
