In 2007, Jim Richards and his wife Becky founded APEK Incorporated with one goal in mind: bringing affordable, quality roofing and siding to the neighborhood. With 25 years of prior experience in the industry, the family-run business took off in New Lenox and grew into a team of salesmen, secretaries, repairmen, and construction crew that service the Chicagoland area everyday. Each year, the business grows, but one thing never changes – our commitment to quality service.
Jim Richards, President
After working in the roofing and siding industry for 25 years, Jim decided to start his own, family-run, roofing and siding business in New Lenox. Not only has his business soared, but he’s been able to provide jobs for those in his community. When he’s not running a business, he’s spending his time with his family or hitting the gym for a workout.

Certifications: Unlimited Roofing License, Lead Safety Certified, OSHA Certified, VSI Certified (Vinyl Siding Institute).

Becky Richards, Vice President

One of the many reasons Becky is great at helping run a business, is that she treats every customer’s home as if it’s her own. Her dedication and pride in her work make her a huge asset to APEK – and our customers. Though she’s often hard at work, she still makes time to raise her kids and travel with her family.

But it’s more than us – it’s about our team
