Gallery Architecture Construction Maintenance Contact


When you become a client of Edward A. Anderson Company, you join a group of homeowners, most of whom have been with us for many years over a variety of different projects. Our first time clients become repeat customers who are so pleased with our work they continue to come back and are eager to refer us to their family, friends and neighbors. In a number of cases, when ownership of a home has changed, Edward A. Anderson has continued to work with that home and the new owner upon the recommendation of the original owner. We consider this the ultimate testimonial!

Hi Paul, Belated Congratulations to you and your crew on your monumental achievement of over 110 years in business! I am one of your many happy clients and want you to know how much I am still enjoying my condo. I still wouldn’t change a thing and love every detail. Your classic architecture eye for detail and skilled craftsmanship are unsurpassed. Cheers! - Linda
We really enjoyed working with you over the years on our “dream house”. It was truly the best house we ever lived in and you and your team were a big part of making it what it was. - Greg
Edward A. Anderson gave us a new house and we love it! We walk in and can’t believe it is the same house. Our Kitchen and First Floor are now amazing spaces and we are planning to get great use of it! - Kim

Paul Armstrong and all those at Edward A Anderson Company helped transform our 1890s house into our home. We purchased the home knowing it was in need of a lot of love and structural work. Paul came out to give us an idea of what we were getting into before we closed on the property or signed with the company. My husband had sketched his vision and Paul brought it to life with some of his much-needed professional experience. From the very beginning, Paul made every step easy.

Dianne manages the office and is very organized. She is on top of things also making it clear and easy to understand the process. The general manager overseeing our home project during construction was Tony and enough good can’t be said about how easy and reliable Tony and the tradespeople were throughout.

Our family moved in about a year in and everyone worked around two young toddlers, dogs, visitors, crazy work schedules, nap schedules, etc. It should also be noted that my husband is as detailed oriented as they come and has a love for technology. Paul, Tony and crew did not bat an eye at the visionaries’ thoughts and ideas (and sometimes critiques).

We found that the check ins were very helpful and the estimated timeline they provided helped guide us along. My husband and I often said, we left our meetings with Tony and Paul feeling better than when we went into them.

The supply chain issues did affect us. However, Tony is the king of pivoting, just lining up another crew to stay on pace. There were some unexpected costs, they worked with us to stay within budget and make some changes where we could. It is unrealistic to go into any project thinking you won’t spend at least a little more than you thought or needing to compromise somewhere.

Our renovation was a full gut in the Lakeshore Historic District of Evanston. While our home itself was not historic, there were many extra steps to take to get approval from the city. The company has the bandwidth to manage this scale of a project and many locations, always making you feel like you are their only client! That is hard to do!

We are overall happy with the end result and give the highest recommendation to Edward A. Anderson Company.
