If you haven’t visited LaMantia Design & Remodeling’s stunning new Hinsdale showroom yet, you’re in for a treat. With eight full dream kitchens available to tour, the showroom is your first step on a remodeling journey that begins and ends with the LaMantia family.
Located on East Ogden Avenue in Hinsdale, LaMantia Design is a family owned design and construction business that specializes in kitchen and bath remodels as well as home additions. Founded in 1973 by Tony LaMantia, today the company is run by his son Andy and son-in-law Mike Gacek.
One thing that sets LaMantia apart from others is a full-service, “soup to nuts” approach. From the showroom tour to your free consultation to the completion of design choices and construction, your LaMantia team will guide you through the entire remodel.
“We take customers through the design process, the architecture process, and see everything through to completion,” Tony LaMantia says. “Customers don’t have to juggle various aspects of the job because they will have an assigned LaMantia design team and project manager who will work side-by-side with them throughout the remodeling project.”
Tony LaMantia’s own path to the design and remodeling industry was established early on, when as a 16-year-old high schooler in Chicago, he went to work for a construction company to earn spending money. He launched LaMantia Design at age 33 and has grown the business ever since with the help of family.
Working with a family owned business has many advantages. “Three-quarters of our business comes from referrals, so we don’t have to invest a lot in marketing. That means our costs are less, which offers value to our customers,” Tony explains.
LaMantia’s experience provides another advantage: working with local municipalities to secure permits and get through inspections. Whereas this process can be onerous for homeowners and less experienced remodelers, Tony and his team have been working in the communities they serve—and building relationships with those communities’ municipalities—for 45 years. So, LaMantia is well prepared to ensure compliance with local regulations to keep their projects running smoothly. This is one of the ways they are able to guarantee their finish dates.
LaMantia, unlike other remodelers, offers an exclusive Five Year Warranty on all of its work and has, since its inception, maintained an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. With their family name on the door, they do everything they can to make sure their clients are satisfied. They also have long term relationships with local banks to help customers obtain financing for their remodeling projects.
And while Tony, his family, and the LaMantia team want you to pay a visit to the showroom in Hinsdale, they’re also happy to take you on a short road trip to see their design and construction teams in action.
“Sometimes it helps clients better understand what the possibilities are for them when they can see a real project in the works,” LaMantia says.
Putting clients at ease and ensuring the sometimes stressful experience of remodeling one’s home is positive remains the focus of the entire LaMantia team.
“Our success has been built on quality workmanship, excellent service, great employees, and treating our customers with honesty and fairness,” LaMantia says.
