Often, to meet local building codes or simply to enhance their brand and increase their traffic, retailers change their storefronts.  Vanderwerff Construction Company has designed and built many well-known retail storefronts in northeastern Illinois.  Just a few of the best known can be seen below.  These include Art’s Auto Body in Hainesville, where we created a rustic look with rough sawn cedar and a canopy cedar shake roof; Miller Krueger in Libertyville, where we replaced the storefront glass with thermal efficient glass and new aluminum frames and steel lintels, creating energy efficiency, a watertight system, and safety through building integrity; Tavern Restaurant in Libertyville, where we added architectural elements to provide visibility and interest; the Studio West and Langworthy buildings both in Libertyville, where we added interesting architectural elements to the facades of several businesses using long-lasting materials like redwood, Fypon trims, and MDO plywood; the T&E Building in Libertyville, where windows were replaced with thermal glass panes and efficient aluminum frames for an updated look; and Village Jewelry and Liberty Barber both in Libertyville, where windows, panels, and awnings were replaced.  For a new look that can build your brand, drive traffic, and save on energy bills, call Dale Vanderwerff at 847-362-2448.
