New construction builds and renovations 

Best For: 

Rough work for wood and steel construction including: setting studs, joists, trusses; wall, roof, and flooring assembly and construction; framing

Finish work including: crown molding, trim work around doors and windows, baseboards, stairs, wainscoting, paneling, built-ins, and flooring 

Lakeside Experience: 

Working side-by-side with the construction manager or general contractor, our rough framing carpenters construct buildings that meet building codes and design specifications. They are committed to safety, efficiency, and quality when laying out interior and exterior walls. Rough framing is the foundation for carpenter work and we pride ourselves in employing the best carpenters in our area.  

Our finish carpenters exceed customer expectations with excellent attention to detail. They are exact in their measurements, cuts, and installation. They study decorative cuts, design, and are well versed in wood, stains, and varnishes so finishes are impressive and meet customer expectations.

With an in-house cabinetry / millwork shop, we can provide almost any custom detail the Architect/Owner is looking for. Lakeside has completed several custom reception desks and accent pieces for clients such as Notre Dame Academy, Welltower Inc., and The Toledo Clinic.
