1960’s & 70’s John Mariotti Sr. was a partner in a builder’s supply company specializing in millwork. This company eventually liquidated and some of the stock as well as machinery were moved into a local warehouse for the Mariotti’s next business venture.
John and Ann Mariotti purchased a small lot at the corner of Lake Street and Gary Avenue in Roselle, Illinois with a small home that was turned into a storefront and named Woodland Lumber Company.
John Mariotti’s focus remained on selling millwork, but he began to supplement his income by selling firewood, weighed on a bathroom scale and railroad ties, which were in great demand at that time. The Mariotti sons were an integral part of the business as they worked side by side with their father after school and during breaks.
When builders started asking John if he could supply windows along with millwork and doors for their projects, windows would be the next product available from Woodland.
1980’s & 90’s By this time, Rano, Ralph and Ken Mariotti had joined the Woodland team and their parents, John and Ann, as full time employees.
The “Little House with the Doors of Many Colors” at Gary and Lake soon became a popular source for windows and doors, offering high quality installations to their customers in the Chicagoland area.
The Mariotti's decided it was time to expand their product offerings to include many of the top rated brands of windows and doors.
Woodland had far outgrown the original facilities and the buildings were replaced with a 14,000 square foot building to accommodate the growing company, including a 6,000 sq. ft. state of the art showroom. John and Ann Mariotti officially handed over the management of the company to their three sons, Rano, Ralph and Ken Mariotti.
2000’s Woodland created four separate divisions: Homeowner, Homeowners Association, Commercial and Contractor to better serve the individual needs of our clients.
In 2019, Woodland Windows & Doors celebrated its 50th anniversary. Today, the next generation of Mariotti’s has joined the company alongside their fathers and uncles. The company’s future looks bright and in the words of John Mariotti, “if you take care of your customer, the customer will take care of you”. Taking care of customers is Woodland’s mission.
