Members of the Potawatomi tribe were the earliest recorded residents of the Northbrook area. In 1833 the Potawatomi ceded their Illinois lands and moved to a place near Council Bluffs, Iowa. Afterward, Joel Sterling Sherman and his family bought 159 acres of land in the northwest quarter of Section 10 for $1.25 per acre; as of 2010, Northbrook's downtown is located on this site. When incorporated in 1901, the village was known as Shermerville in honor of Frederick Schermer, who donated the land for its first train station. The village changed its name to Northbrook in 1923 as an effort to improve its public image. The name was chosen because the West Fork of the North Branch of the Chicago River runs through the Village.

Lakeland serves the area and would like the opportunity to be your Northbrook 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 Northbrook area.
