Hi my name is Bill. I am the owner of Great Lakes Bldg & Restoration. I am 42 years old with 3 children and an amazing wife who is partnered with me in business. I started working in the trades when I was about 13 years old. I would go to work with my dad on the weekends to make a little money. As I got older I began to spend more time on the job with my father and I realized it may be something I could make a career out of. I quickly grew fond of the feeling I got by repairing damaged homes while simultaneously repairing damaged hearts. When people suffer a major loss to their home it can be devastating from a mental standpoint. I always enjoyed making something look beautiful again but I honestly enjoyed making someone smile while being in their home again a little more.
I worked for my father until I was 21 and then ventured out on my own. I spent time subcontracting for other companies as well as some time being a project coordinator. I’m very thankful for that time as it helped me understand the business not only from the field and job site, but also from the administrative side. It has always been my goal and desire to own and also operate my own business. I have a great sense of pride about not only restoration and remodeling but also about building relationships, whether that be with other colleagues, tradesman, business owners, or most importantly homeowners. I truly enjoy the experience of meeting someone and walking them through either some pretty dark times to brighter days or helping design and make dreams become reality with remodels.
I would love to have the opportunity to work with you!!

Everyone was friendly and professional but more importantly they did a fine job after our fire. They all put forth 110% on everything they did and went out of their way to make sure my wife and I were completely satisfied. Bill is a man of his word and I appreciate that. I want to thank you again for getting us back in our home in the timeframe we agreed to without delays typical of construction projects.Cary and Joanne P.
As stressful as the fire and displacing of my family was, having selected a restoration/construction company to do the work was equally concerning. The team was amazing. Everyone seemed to share a genuine concern and sense of urgency. Bill brought an open, honest and direct way of discussing what was being done and that was very helpful. He made what was a very difficult time okay and even enjoyable at times. Thank you!William and Sheila C.
We are grateful for the understanding and attention to detail that was shown towards our needs and desires. We had our home built for us and wanted it restored essentially to the way it was prior to the fire with only a few changes and upgrades. Great Lakes Building & Restoration worked diligently to do that, and in many ways made our home better than it was when it was first constructed.Paul B.
