In 1867, ten men purchased Highland Park for just over $39,000. They were the original stockholders of the Highland Park Building Company. Following construction of the Chicago and Milwaukee Railroad, a depot was established at Highland Park and a plat, extending south to Central Avenue, was laid out in 1856. At that point, Highland Park was settled on mostly scattered farms and undeveloped forested land. Highland Park was established as a city in 1869, with a population of 500. Highland Park was named from its parklike setting at a lofty elevation relative to the lake. To learn more about this beautiful area please visit the City of Highland Park here.
Lakeland serves the area and would like the opportunity to be your Highland Park Residential or Commercial Roofer.
The picture on the top of this page features a home where we removed a tired, weathered cedar shake roof and replaced it with an attractive high-quality CertainTeed shingle. We further improved the style and design by installing copper in all of the valleys on the roof. The end result was an attractive, functional roof that will look great for decades to come and will provide the necessary protection for the inside of the home.
On the other hand, traditional homes may have a portion of the roof that is a flat roof. That flat roof area may be a second-floor balcony or second or third floor deck space.
In addition to working on Residential Roofs, Lakeland also specializes in Commercial Roofs in the Highland Park area.
