The Heartland Way

Heartland Garage Builders (HGB) understands that undertaking a detached garage construction project is an expensive and complicated process. Based on our years of experience designing, permitting and building in the residential marketplace, we want to provide a full turn-key service so that you get a complete garage build, not just 4 walls and a roof and you are left to figure out the rest on your own!

What makes a Heartland Garage different from all the rest? We call it The Heartland Way, and this is what goes into every garage we build:

  • Same pricing for a hip roof versus a gable roof. Heartland Garage Builders feels you should be able to choose the roof you want without being told that one is more expensive than the other!
  • Partnership with Chicagoland’s premier dedicated permit service, Mach 1, Inc. which has permitted THOUSANDS of garages all over the greater Chicagoland area.
  • Additional Municipal Processes: our staff has the ability to maneuver complicated projects through various challenging village processes. With decades of experience at Zoning Boards of Appeal, Village Boards/Councils and Historic/Preservation Commissions, getting the garage project you want has never be in better hands!
  • HGB’s Staff will schedule and appear for all municipal inspections at your property.
  • 5” concrete slab with fiber mesh reinforcement, 6 bag mix. This strengthens the concrete considerably and lengthens its longevity.
  • Housewrap (e.g., Tyvek) is included which functions as a weather-resistant barrier preventing rain from getting into the wall assembly while still allowing water vapor to pass to the exterior. This improves the longevity of your garage and keeps the structure dry AND is actually a necessary part of the installation process for the vinyl siding manufacturer to warranty their product.
  • Web-enabled garage door opener which provides the comfort knowing that your garage door is closed, regardless of where you are in the world!
  • Gutters and downspouts are included to collect rainwater and direct it away from the garage’s foundation. This will protect the foundation from settling and pooling water on your driveway and sidewalk.
  • Standard Electrical Work – includes LED light fixtures for the interior and exterior lights (1 interior light and GFI outlet are included for each vehicle bay). Plus, the electric is installed “drywall ready” which means that its recessed and ready for the interior of your garage to be finished in the future if the need arises.
  • Insulated Overhead Garage Door – since the electric is being installed to allow for insulation and a wall covering (e.g., drywall or a wall hanging system), we include an insulated overhead door as a standard part of your project.
