Park Ridge as its name suggests, sits on a ridge. The soil is abundant with clay deposits, which made it a brick-making center for the developing city of Chicago. The area of Park Ridge was inhabited by the Potawatomie until they were removed in 1833. The area was a convenient portage between the Des Plaines and Chicago rivers for the French explorers and in the early 1830s, the first settlers arrived from New England and New York. In 1854 George Penny established a brickworks in the area. Due to the brickwork and the abundance of clay, Park Ridge was nicknamed "Brickton" by locals.

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