Thomas Adams & Sons Construction Company has been serving Chicago’s North Shore Suburbs in the residential construction and remodeling business since 1950.

Our family business was started by our father, Thomas Adams Sr.  He attended the Washburn Trade School after World War II, and became a Journeyman Carpenter.  He served his union apprenticeship with one of the North Shore’s premier companies, Hemphill Construction.  Several years later, he became a Master Carpenter. While Tom Sr. passed away in 2006, the business continues on into its second generation, under the leadership of his three sons and daughter.

The Adams brothers have worked in the construction business since they were teenagers.  With over 100 years of combined experience, we are able to solve your housing needs and problems.  We're experts in everything from roofs to basements and can assist you with anything from “changing a light bulb” to building a new home. Refer to the Services page for a list of services we can provide for you.

  • Thomas B. Adams, oldest son, has a BS degree in Building Construction Technology. In 1981, Tom moved to Deerfield, IL to assume leadership of his father's company. He and his wife, raised their children in Deerfield where Tom was very involved in the community and has coached baseball, basketball, football and soccer teams. Tom offered his expertise building sets for the early years of Deerfield Children's Theatre, worked in the Boy Scout program, was an involved parent in the schools his children attended and provided 46 years of volunteer service in leadership and teaching positions in his congregation.

  • John C. Adams, second son, is our Master Carpenter, who learned from the best.  Apprenticing with his father, Tom Adams, Sr., at the early age of 15, he has worked in the trade nearly 40 years now.  As Project Manager, John brings his friendly, talkative nature along with his talented hands and fine craftsmanship to every job.  With John in charge, you won't see walls that are out of square or corner moldings that don't match -- his eye is on perfection.  Nothing but the highest quality work will pass John's high standard of excellence.  Off the job, you may catch John listening to an old time radio show, volunteering at Boy Scout Camp and serving older members of his congregation and community. 
  • Michael S. Adams, the youngest son, is our Job Supervisor overseeing the day-to-day operations of our jobs. He is also our Materials Expert helping us secure the best quality products available on the market today. It is Mike who leaps into action when clients call with an emergency. Mike has served many years as Scoutmaster helping young men achieve the rank of Eagle Scout and organized fundraisers to help support Scouting. He has also been a coach in community sports programs. Mike is a nice guy that customers welcome into their homes and lives. Their trust even extends to having him care for their beloved family pets.
  • Judy Adams, the oldest daughter, is the familiar voice customers hear each time they call. She manages the office and keeps the company running and organized. Prior to stepping into the family business, Judy received the teaching degree in Home Economics Education and taught school ten years in the Morton Grove School District. She has held a variety of leadership positions in womens' organizations and serves as an Election Judge. Our clients love Judy so much that they've called upon her to care for their children or house sit while they're out of town.  If you have questions or would like to schedule an appointment, Judy is the lady to call.
