About APEK Incorporated

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’ 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 crews that service the Chicagoland area every day. 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 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 its more than us — about our team

Community involvement

Part of being in a community means helping those around us. Not only do we donate to our friends at St. Jude’s and Susan G. Komen each month, but we put roofs over the heads of our neighbors.


APEK donated new pavilion roofs to the New Lenox Rebels, the Creamery in Monee and to several families in need.
