In business since 1913, Edward A. Anderson Company has one of the longest traditions in residential architecture and construction on Chicago’s North Shore. We work on all types of projects, including additions, interior and exterior alterations, renovations, restorations, preservation, new homes and maintenance. With an office and workshop in Winnetka, we are local and responsive to any need at anytime no matter how large or small.
Through four generations of family management we have continued to uphold our founders' original inspiration. We employ only the best in skilled labor, use only the finest in proven building materials and adhere to the highest ethical practices both in our building methods and business conduct. Testaments to this inspiration can be found in numerous articles throughout the years including one at the Winnetka Historical Society.
We are Carpenters, Craftsmen, Architectural Designers and Historic Renovators... people who take great pride in everything we do. We interact with you in a friendly, timely and knowledgeable manner. We empower our Lead Carpenters to make on-the-spot decisions and to keep you advised of project schedules and important decisions required to keep things moving. We promise to deliver for you the highest quality construction, using the safest, most cost effective and expedient means possible and we make sure our work is built to last the test of time.
Working with us you'll know you've made the best choice and you will always be provided with very personal service, whether directly from our owner; Paul L. Armstrong an Architect and local North Shore resident, or any other member of our dedicated team.
Unlike most companies in our industry we offer a wide range of flexibility. We understand that each project is unique and each client has different expectations so we are flexible enough to tailor our options to fit the needs of your particular goals. This includes separate agreements for Architecture, Construction and Maintenance so that you are in control every step of the way. We will cater to you and find the best option or options to fit your specific needs.
Our creative team will work together to bring your design ideas to life. We are committed to long-term relationships with vendors, trade partners and clients like you. We have our own in-house staff of experienced Lead Carpenters and they know the things that go beyond quality construction such as cleanliness, courtesy, and communication. All of our talented team leaders are trained to keep you advised of schedules and important decisions required to keep things moving.
We collaborate with you for a working relationship that will exceed your expectations every step of the way. Our operations are streamlined and our company size is purposely controlled in order to maintain a close personal relationship with you. This guarantees that every client will work and partner directly with our owner during the course of their project.
You can trust us for guidance and support. We have an extensive group of expert vendors and subcontractors offering competitive pricing and loyal service. When you select Edward A. Anderson Company for your project you are not only committing to an excellent team of Carpenter-Craftsmen, superior vendors and expert subcontractors, but you are also entering into a relationship with people who care about you, your home and your complete satisfaction.
