Eikenhout Inc. is a full service distributor of roofing, siding, windows, doors and decks. What began in 1894 as a roofing supplier has grown into the largest independently owned distributor in West Michigan.
Housed in the original warehouse on 346 Wealthy SW Eikenhout began by selling roofing supplies in the Grand Rapids area. It grew into providing the tar necessary for built up roofing in the commercial market as well as asphalt shingles for residential homes. The winters were sometimes slow and at times they weaved baskets in our upper storage area of the original building. You do not have to tell us that ingenuity is often required in our business. Fortunately we were better at roofing then basket weaving and our 115 year history proves that out.
We added other lines of material as needs demanded. Today we have as much square footage dedicated to siding as we do roofing. Our commitment to providing Michigan with windows has allowed us to create “your window store” in each of our showrooms.
Our local ownership is unique in that they work side by side with our customers. They appreciate and know each individual customer who is working hard every day to provide for their family. Historically, Eikenhout has partnered with our customers to help them reach their goal and we have a profound appreciation for each contractor. In fact Eikenhout was built on the “little guys” who understand service, partnership and dependability.
Today Eikenhout has seven different locations throughout Michigan and has changed the landscape of how business is done. It is not through offering inferior products or sloppy service. It is by treating every customer as though they are our most important asset and providing them with materials, knowledge and service that reflects our priority in helping them succeed.
We are proud to drive by homes and see more of our roofing, siding and windows installed in Michigan homes than any other distributor. We are fortunate to have such great customers.
