About The Owners
Platinum Builders is the sister company of Platinum Restoration who helps homeowners and businesses recover after suffering a property loss such as a fire, flood, or other types of damage. While that company uses their own credentialed in house technicians for the drying and cleaning needs of our customers, Kevin and Tom who founded Platinum Restoration also act as General Contractors to rebuild what was damaged. Our customers were so enthused with our repair work that we began receiving referrals for large home renovations, remodeling, home additions and custom homes. We realized quickly that our new business needed its own identity and birthed Platinum Builders! Tom and Kevin, both natives of Downers Grove have over 40 years of combined experience in the construction field and set out to be the best custom home builders in the area. They have both built their own new build homes, spec homes and build to suits in the area using the best sub-contractors and sparing no details with their projects. They live and are active parents, coaches, and citizens of the community and their reputation is know to be home builders you can trust.
Platinum Builders offers full design, implement and build services in DuPage, Cook, Will and Lake County with many of our customers being in Downers Grove, Hinsdale, Burr-Ridge, Elmhurst, Naperville and surrounding towns.
Kevin Greaney - Owner
Kevin grew up in Darien and graduated from Downers Grove High School and then completed his college degree at Eastern Illinois. He has been building custom homes since the early 2000’s where his love of real estate and appreciation of architecture began. His eye for detail is sharp and knowledge of development especially in the western suburbs is unmatched. Kevin does most of the initial consultations and works closely with our architect and designer to meet our client’s needs. There is no project that is out of his range and expertise.
Tom Barr - Owner
Also born and raised in Downers Grove, his entire family and children attended Downers Grove schools. Tom went the route of serving the nation in the military for 8 years before returning to the area and landing a job with a leading property damage restoration company. This being his first discipline in building construction, it required strong leadership and problem solving skills. He is still very active in the restoration industry and respected by many of his peers and colleagues for helping to write the Body of Knowledge for the Certified Restorer Program, governed by the Restoration Industry Association. He handles most of the business operations but also manages projects as well and assists Kevin with the large scale projects.
