Joe Cavallo

Joe, the owner and founder of Cavallo Contracting, grew up on the east coast and moved to Chicago in the mid 80’s. In his younger years  he was enamored with the stunning east coast architecture where he was immersed and developed a strong curiosity for building and design. 

A natural craftsman, Joe always felt called to create and build beautiful spaces. As soon as he graduated high school he made it his purpose to learn as much as possible from industry tradesmen. In 1998, with twelve years of experience and encouragement from his mentors, Joe created what would become Cavallo Contracting. 

Over 20 years later, Joe is known as the go to guy for quality craftsmanship with an eye for detail, honest feedback, and personable customer service. He takes immense pride in forming honest relationships with the clients and paying attention to the detail of each element of a project, and surrounds himself with a team who stand by this mission.

Words From Our

Happy Clients


"My husband and I have used Cavallo Contracting for several projects throughout the last several years in our home. The first project was rebuilding our deck. After that, Joe and his team have redesigned and fixed a construction issue with the fireplace, changed out the spindles on our staircase, and updated 3 bathrooms. Joe and his crew are professional, trustworthy, and have great design ideas. They are very easy to work with. We use them for any big project in our house, and I would definitely recommend them. I attached some pictures of the finished projects they have done for us."
