Find Out About How We Put Our Mark On The Custom Home Marketplace in Naperville & Surrounding Area

How We Got Started


Brother-in-laws Frank Dimperio and Patrick Timmons, home building contractors with a combined 40-plus years of residential home builders experience in the Chicagoland area, founded 5th Avenue Construction in 2009.

Seeing the industry shift amidst the Great Recession, Dimperio and Timmons established 5th Avenue as an antidote to the cost-cutting, quality-reducing measures they saw rising throughout house construction companies in the new house construction industry. Eager to craft a new niche in the marketplace and respond to homebuyers’ most pressing concerns, Dimperio and Timmons built 5th Avenue to have a precise focus on these three areas of the construction of a house:

  • Inspired and distinctive design
  • Optimal transparency between buyer and builder
  • High-quality and sustainable construction practices

The family-owned and operated firm caters to individual buyers, particularly in the custom home marketplace. In addition, 5th Avenue has entered community development in custom home communities with semi-custom homes in Lemont (The Glens of Connemara), Lisle, and Plainfield, Illinois.

In 2012, 5th Avenue’s evolution reached a new high when the new home contractors moved the company into a modern showroom in downtown Naperville, a physical sign of the firm’s emerging reputation and rapid growth. The 5th Avenue headquarters hosts a design center, a full kitchen, and smart home technology.
