In 2003 our three partners Doug Overweg, Troy Forner and Matt Bell ventured out and started Distinctive Group Inc. With only a handful of projects under our belt and 2 employees, we have grown to over 35 carpenters on staff and have completed over 1000 projects throughout the Midwest.
Our dedicated employees of Distinctive Group Inc. take extreme pride in our workmanship, attention to details and customer service. We believe in the hands on approach and with this very few projects are done without one of our owners overseeing construction, quality and communication for each project from start to finish.
From small remodels to multi-million dollar buildings we have the experience and manpower to complete your project on time and on budget. Distinctive Group specializes in wood framing and finish carpentry but we can also take care of your general contracting needs along with other various specialized trades.
