Here is proof that what goes around comes around.

For nearly three decades, Bill Conforti made 3066 to 3070 N. Clybourn Ave. the home of Siding-1, Windows-1, and Cobblestone Development.

After Siding-1, Windows-1, was sold in 2012, the property was redeveloped in 2015 and is now the new showroom and headquarters of Cobblestone Development.

Conforti’s Cobblestone Development is focused in two areas: exterior home improvement such as windows, siding, porches, and decks. Also, renovations including kitchen, baths, basements, and additions are offered. Bill also offers his Mission Statement: “Cobblestone Development, Inc. is Chicagoland’s premier provider of quality products and services to ensure our customers receive the finest improvements to the interior and exterior of their homes.”

Conforti said ”what really makes us unique is our 30 year track record of thousands of satisfied customers and an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.” The majority of our business comes from previous customers and referrals.

Along the way, Conforti received many commendations such as: “The Big 50” Award (from Remodeling Magazine that honors the nation’s Top 50 remodeling firms), and the “Top 500” Award (by Qualified Remodelers Magazine which identifies the best contractors across the county). Bill’s company was given the “Honor of Excellence” from the City of Chicago which designated an honorary day on June 16,(?). Additionally, Bill Conforti has been featured in many industry publications.

In 2011, Conforti was awarded his own street in Chicago. Oakley Avenue at the intersection of Clybourn is now the “Honorary Bill Conforti Way.”

“Yes,” Conforti smiled, “I always wanted to have my own way.”

Visit Bill at 3066 N. Clybourn Ave. at the “Honorary Bill Conforti Way” or call (773) 661-0606. For more information visit
