Our History

Rick Newtoff and Scott Wendell started Blue Sky Builders in 1979. Originally, we began as subcontractors who got our work from other garage builders or construction companies. Over time, we started generating some word of mouth referrals and began to do some modest advertising of our own (newspapers, fliers, Yellow Pages).

We upgraded from our first office (our homes!) into our office in Westmont on Naperville Road (pictured below). In 1999, we moved to our current location in Downers Grove (424 Ogden Ave.) to increase street visibility for our business. If you are from the area you are probably familiar with the amount of traffic on Ogden! This move was just another factor in helping us grow our business.

What Keeps Blue Sky Builders Going Strong?

Satisfying our customers is our number one goal, priority, and motivation. What we enjoy most is designing a garage with customers needs and wants in mind. Every garage is built to the owner’s specifications – not what we want to build – and with that in mind it gives us great satisfaction.

I was always told to find something you like to do, and 45 years later, I still get up enjoying the work I do.” (Rick Newtoff – Blue Sky Builders Owner)
