Elysian Construction

When you walk into Elysian Construction’s corporate office you will find an extensive contemporary art collection adorning the walls, something you might not expect to see at a construction company. Just like the beauty of each piece that adorns the walls, Elysian is dedicated to pursuing its clients’ creative avenues to improve the overall aesthetic appeal of homes from the outside.

Over 25 years ago, Elysian’s Chris Haqq left medical-device sales to try his hand at exterior construction in the early aughts — particularly, but not only, for insurance-based repairs after hailstorms and other destructive events. Early on, he saw the opportunity to embark on a mission to professionalize the industry. Since then, he and his brother, Steve Haqq, and long-term friend Mike Antonello, established Elysian Construction to work together on roofs, siding, gutters and other “exterior-envelope construction.”

With their experience, capabilities and steady demeanor, they provide service not only to people stressing over insurance claims but also to clients who come to Elysian to update their homes with James Hardie board, cedar shake or tile roofs, copper gutters and other premium products. They also shine, Haqq says, when it comes to high-end window installations, ensuring that the interior looks as good as the exterior.

Operating within the world of insurance restoration isn’t always easy — it’s an industry naturally fraught with chaos, given that it’s often driven by wind or weather — but Haqq says what separates Elysian from the rest is its technical capabilities, product knowledge, aesthetic sophistication and honesty.

“We’re someone you can trust,” he says.
