Chicago - based general contractor specializing in residential and commercial remodeling and construction.

About Us
Our Mission: To deliver a quality built project to each individual client. From begining to end, our focus is on building the very best.
New Explode Construction specializes in residential remodeling, commercial as well as custom home construction. Whether we are taking on a commercial complex, building a custom home, or remodeling a multi-unit building, our success stems largely from our organization, professionalism, and our attention to detail.

In 2004, general contractor and owner, Sebastian Micle, came to the United States from Romania where he studied engineering and construction.  He began working in the south (Florida, Atlanta, Georgia, and Tennessee) providing framing for restaurant chains and quickly recognized the need for high quality carpenters and general contractors.

In 2006, he moved to the Chicago area and founded New Explode Construction.  Initially, he built his business by forging close relationships with signature contractors and renovation experts with a focus on the core services of commercial office remodeling, restaurant refurbishing, and residential projects.  New Explode quickly gained a reputation for its high-quality woodwork, fine carpentry, beautiful decks, and additions.  Since then, the business has grown rapidly through referrals and endorsements by its satisfied clients.

Sebastian’s good character has been further evidenced by his compassion through his community involvement and philanthropic contributions which have served to benefit causes such as Humane Society, American Cancer Society,Children's International, Fundatia Zalauani la Chicago, Ronald McDonald House, and Illinois Leukemia Chapter.

Recognized as one of Chicago’s premier building and remodeling contractors, New Explode Construction specializes in residential remodeling, as well as custom home and commercial construction and renovation.  The company prides itself in its strong contingent of quality subcontractors, suppliers, and specialists and in the fact that it is consistently on-time and on-budget.

Attention to detail, organization, and professionalism are NEC's  hallmarks, regardless of whether the project is large or small and are the reasons why NEC projects consistently pass inspection the first time – a claim that very few construction companies can make.

For more than nine years, we have been changing and inspiring lives and fulfilling dreams by building and renovating Chicago homes and businesses.  Along the way, we’ve cultivated strong personal relationships and built trust because of our company’s exceptional craftsmanship, assured use of advanced materials and technologies, and our philosophy of socially responsible building practices.

Listening to and communicating with our clients is the starting point of every project.  We focus on keeping clients aware of the progress at every stage and strive to maintain open and honest communication for the duration of the project.  Our team of professional planners, designers, and carpenters is available to help our clients from the beginning and until the customer’s needs are completely satisfied.  Only then do we consider the work finished.
