While many builders lay claim to a tradition of old-world craftsmanship, few companies have the personal story to back it up. For Greg Werderitch of Werderitch Construction, the family tradition goes back four generations, to Austria. His great-grandfather, Alois Werderitch was a Master Builder-A prestigious title reserved for only the finest craftsmen.

With the next generation, the family tradition crossed the ocean. Gregšs grandfather, also named Alois, arrived at Ellis Island in 1922. In spite of the skills he had learned from his father, it was difficult for a newcomer to find work as a carpenter, and Alois came to Chicago as an ironworker on the Chicago subway system. Later he worked as a superintendent for a large builder, and he taught his son Louis, Greg's father, the family trade of carpentry.

In 1962, Louis started his own business, building custom homes in the Barrington and Palatine areas. Greg began helping in the family business as a young boy, and later worked as a carpenter for eleven years until he started his own company, Werderitch Construction, Inc., in 1984.

Like his great-grandfather, his grandfather and his father before him, Greg Werderitch is a craftsman, specializing in custom work and uniquely designed projects. And also like them, he takes great pride in his work, and in the strong relationships he has formed with his many satisfied clients. His work can be found in Barrington, Barrington Hills, Arlington Heights, and Crystal Lake, where his company is based.

Greg's two brothers are also employed in the building industry, and his son is showing interest in carrying on the family trade. It looks like this is one tradition that will continue into the next generation, and beyond.
