About Dan Sillars, General Contractor, Inc.

Founded in 1974 we have been providing quality built homes, additions, remodeling projects of all types, along with commercial space construction and remodeling to the Wausau and surrounding area for over 44 years. With moving into our second generation of existence, we continue to provide innovative design solutions to fit your needs and budget while utilizing our in-house CAD design service.

We are a ’hands on’ building team doing as much of your project as we can personally, utilizing as few sub contractors as possible to achieve the highest quality. This means Cory and his team are actually on-site constructing your project. You'll get to know the people who are working to create your dream.

Ask us about what services we can provide to your specific needs. If we aren't the best option to get your needs met, we'll be happy to recommend another professional for that portion of your project.
