I started remodeling homes in 1978. I briefly worked for a company in Waukegan and that led me to Lakeland Building Supply. At 19, I started working for myself and I did not have any credit history! Pete worked with me in the early years as I purchased roofing, insulation, siding and gutters. As I expanded I started building homes and bought all my cabinets and countertops and siding from Lakeland. My son got stuck with a half built house when housing crashed!!! Pete Ecklund worked with him until the banking issues were resolved. Last year I finally had my first mistake from Lakeland with a countertop. I stopped in with drawings to resolve the issue. Lakeland corrected the design and expedited the rebuild at no cost to my company. That's 36 years of doing business together with 1 mistake!!! You cannot find companies like this anymore. And that is why I would highly recommend Lakeland Building Supply for all your remodeling needs. Many of the faces I saw when I walked into their showroom in 1979 still greet you today and they know their business! Thank You, Pete, Jim, Dave, Wayne, Greg and everyone else behind the scenes that makes this great place tic. John Gebert Owner J.B. Homes
