“I just wanted to reach out and let you know how thankful I am for the work you and your team provided on our countless projects at University of Toledo this past winter, spring, and summer. These food service renovations can often get hectic with so many moving parts and tight timelines and it was always nice to have a solid and professional team to lean on when the time arose. As evidenced by the number of times I tried to steal away your guys to other parts of the country, I don’t think I’ve worked with a better group of people than Dave and his crew of Kevin, Brian, Mason, Rob, and Lucy. Not only is their quality of work tremendous, they were always professional, courteous, and hard working. I also appreciated the depth and care that each person took to make sure the job got done right.”
“As we got into the month of May and I wasn’t able to be on campus as much, I was always able to count on everyone from that group being where they needed to be and getting the job done. I can’t brag about Dave enough but his eye for detail, management/coordination with his guys and other trades, and just overall drive to get the job complete make me wish I had a “Dave” at every job. On top of him and his crew’s work qualities, they’re all just good people that I enjoyed talking to and working with each day. I look forward to working with Lakeside in the future and please reach out if you ever need anything from me.”

“I want to reach out and express my gratitude for the fine job and quality craftmanship you and your team has provided on the projects we have completed together so far. Austin and I have worked closely with Dave and his team on the Student Center, Pom & Honey, Tu Taco and Chick-Fil-A projects. With tight time frames, cramped working conditions and multiple trade involvement, these food service renovations can be tough if you do not have the best people involved. “
“We’ve found that Dave’s organization, coordination, and goal-oriented willingness to push, has been outstanding. The knowledge and skill of Kevin and your carpentry crew goes unmatched. Rob and your finishing crew, Brian and your tile setters have provided great quality while working in suboptimal conditions. Everyone on your staff has worked well with other trades and helped bring each project to a timely completion. In my opinion, the quality of an organization is summed up by the quality of work their crews produce. This attribute of Lakeside is highlighted by the minimal punch lists each project has received and the prompt completion of each of those lists. Look forward to working with you and your team on future projects.”

“Just wanted to let you know Tim and Alex did an amazing job last night and the counters came out great. This entire job was a pleasure to work with everyone you sent. Lakeside truly exceeded my expectations. Greatly appreciate all your help. I’m looking forward to the next opportunity to work with you all again. Thank you.”
“I wanted to send you all a note to say ‘Thank-you’ for your work to keep this project moving and get it completed on time. The users of the building are very pleased with the renovated space and since they officially moved into the space yesterday with restrooms that are completed, they are extremely happy. I know this is not the largest project you were working on, but BGSU truly appreciates all the hard work you all do for us. Thanks again!”

“I wanted to let you know to pass to your team that the waste water building project turned out better than expected.
Yourself, Todd and the guys did an excellent job working with us and we are very pleased with the outcome considering what we were up against.
Keeping things scheduled, organized, cleaned up, and being professional and courteous is appreciated.
Please pass this on to the rest of the team a job well done!“
“Once again I would like to recognize Chris and Heather’s for the outstanding work they did on the prep and painting of the Reichert Canopy. Truly a professional team you’ve provided.
Great work, flexibility and customer satisfaction is paramount in the work ethic they both demonstrate. It a real pleasure to put so much confidence in the personnel you provide, I could go on and on.“
“I want to make sure you knew that I couldn’t be happier right now with Mike. He did me a HUGE favor and came in last night and got my check out counter top done (which looks great) plus put up a temporary barrier until he is able to get the glass. My employee who does check out has been off work after losing her 17 year old son and a huge fear of hers with coming back is making sure she is ok in front of patients. So now that I am able to have this barrier up for her I know she will be much more comfortable coming back to work. She will now be able to shut her window if she needs to and wont feel so vulnerable in the first few days back.
I seriously cannot thank Mike enough for doing this for me!!! It truly means the world to me and my employees and the doctors that he was so fast to get out here and get what I requested done – and even did it sooner than I had asked for him to have it done.
Just wanted to make sure you know how lucky you guys are to have him working for you guys!!!”

“Lakeside has been a reliable contractor for many construction jobs, large and small, at The Town Center at Levis Commons. Some of the tenants included JB Sarnies’, AT&T, GNC, OnSight, Pure MD Lasers and Progressive Insurance. They have done everything from painting and flooring work to complete build outs of unfinished spaces for major new office and retail tenants.
Deadlines were always met, even when multiple changes were added into the projects. Prices have always been reasonable – usually the lowest- and workmanship has been the highest quality. Noise and mess were never an issue, and they never caused any interference or complaints from our businesses or customers, which is very important in a first class office/retail center. We will continue to use Lakeside for future projects, knowing that we will always be pleased with the end results.
I don’t believe it would be a problem if you want to name some of the tenants, I can think of- JB Sarnies’; AT&T; GNC; OnSight; Pure MD Lasers; Progressive Insurance.”

“I have used Lakeside Interiors for various carpet and painting projects throughout the facility and have always been very pleased with the results. Their work area is always kept clean during renovation projects, and they keep safety in mind at all times.
Their estimating staff, painters and carpet installers present themselves in a very professional manner and are also very trustworthy. Maintaining complex security at all times is very important to our organization. I have never had a situation where their installers were in question, even when working after hours in high security areas.
I would highly recommend them for any type of renovation or new construction work.”
“We are a certified commercial interior design firm providing services for private, local and state K-12 through higher education facilities, health care, hospitality, local and state governmental facilities, county libraries as well as corporate clients through North West Ohio and South East Michigan.

“Lakeside’s performance out at BP-Husky Refinery continues to exceed expectations. They have managed to complete work on time, managed constant changes due to owner requested items, stayed within quoted cost, with high quality and all the while keeping safety as the number one priority at a site that demands safety excellence.”
“Back in 1994 we completed an 85000 sq ft addition to the high school at Springfield. During that time we reduced some of the work in other sections of the building due to budget constraints. As part of the reductions, we needed to add from outside the bid contracts to do some finish work in the halls where we removed the original 1967 floor tile.
I called Lakeside to work with us to replace tile with something new. He recommended we may want to consider carpet. This was quite a shock knowing how messy the students and staff can be in the halls of a high school. He developed a quote for the type and spec of the carpet.
I along with Randy, presented to the board an action plan for costs for install and care of the new carpeting that we felt would last for a very long period of time.We felt it would not have the amount of upkeep required by tile for the hospital appearance the Superintendent was used to. Also we spoke to the Board about the benefit of sound reduction in the halls to disturb classrooms less. We replaced 800 yards of tile with carpet. To this day it is still in the halls and looks very good. We found it not only reduced the sound levels, it also helped to reduce the dust that constantly flew throughout. The appearance is great and staff seem to love how quiet it worked for all. Large area vacuums reduced the amount of labor to clean and maintain.
“Just wanted to tell you how pleased I am with the performance of Lakeside on my new home. I know the house presented a few challenges but your company did a great job and I look forward to working with you in the future. Also Todd did an outstanding job and provided great customer service.”
“Contract Options, Inc. has been doing business with Lakeside Interiors for over 16 years and we can say you won’t find a better interiors contractor in the marketplace. They are smart, customer oriented and always under promise while over performing. We have done several nice projects with them over the years. City of Monroe Ice Arena, University of Toledo, BP Oil, and Bowling Green State University to name a few. They are the best of the trade but are not shy about addressing mistakes if they happen. We have enjoyed the relationship very much and look forward to doing business with Lakeside for years to come. Please don’t hesitate to use us as a reference.”

“Randy, I just wanted to drop you a note to let you know how appreciative I am of the work your crew did for me in my bin 72. They were a hard working group of people who communicated well and proved to be very efficient. I also want to particularly commend Randy Hayes and Mark (the carpenter) for their professionalism. I had an extremely busy weekend here at the plant and this crew and their leader helped to lighten the load. Thank you too sir for helping me set this up. I will consider Lakeside again for future work.”
