“In our book, Felipe Villanueva and his people are stars,” said the delighted man of the house.
The scope of Lakeside’s work runs the gamut.
“We are just putting the finishing touches on a very high-end renovation project in the Gold Coast,” says Felipe. “The home is in a vintage building dating back to the early 1900s. It has five bedrooms and baths, maid's quarters in addition to living space. It has been a long, stiff challenge demanding many different kinds of skills, including re-engineering the heating and air conditioning, delicate wood restoration, and plumbing upgrades. The owner is extremely satisfied with the outcome. Pleasing an owner is what keeps us motivated,” he said.
The project is one of several gut rehab projects Lakeside has tackled in the past couple of years. But Villanueva stresses that no client need is too small for Lakeside to tend to.
He mentions changing a few bathroom light fixtures, replacing a sump pump, fixing a garbage disposal, installing patio tiles as just a few smaller undertakings his company has readily done in recent months.
“We are there for whatever people need,” he says. “We are in the business of helping the homeowner enjoy where they live. Whether that means fixing what’s broken. Making a kitchen more modern and strikingly beautiful or a bathroom more functional and relaxing."
From Lincoln Park, to Bucktown, to Lakeview to the South Loop…literally all around town…Villanueva and his people have come to be trusted. Whatever the needs of a home are.
The tough love of years ago continues to deliver a dual payoff. For Lakeside Remodeling and the company’s customers.
