Owner Ben Orr started out shoveling snow in Glenview in 1996 with little more than a few shovels, and eventually, a snow blower. Word quickly spread of his can-do attitude and knack for helping out his neighbors. Before long, Ben was able to buy his first plow truck in 2002. Snow Removal was the first service that we offered and still remains an important part of our business today.
Since our founding in 2005, we've been providing exceptional snow removal and holiday lighting services to the Northern suburbs of Chicagoland. In 2010, due to our rapid growth in both manpower and equipment, power washing and window cleaning were added to our list of specialities, providing Northern's customers with a complete range of seasonal services.
We'd like to give a shout-out to all those that have supported us over the years! We couldn't have asked for better folks to support us!
At Northern Seasonal, we take an active part in making our communities the best possible places to live, work, and raise a family. That's why we've partnered with some great organizations who do even greater things for those in need.
-The Kohl Children's Museum: Northern Seasonal has completed the Holiday Lighting display in nearby Habitat Park for several years. Our team looks forward to this every year and the look on the children's eyes when we light it up for the first time. Truly a memorable experience every year for us!
-Division 20 Benevolent Fund: This charitable organization holds a special place in the heart of owner Ben Orr. Serving as a firefighter himself, caring for his retired brothers and their families is as important as ever. Northern Seasonal donates its time with power washing and window cleaning for the annual Division 20 silent auction.
We are a family-run business, we treat our customers with respect, and we pride ourselves in the work that we do. Come see the difference, call us today!
- Glenview Chamber of Commerce - Northern Seasonal is proud to be located in Glenview and belong to the Glenview Chamber of Commerce.
- Winnetka Chamber of Commerce - We have been proud members of the Winnetka Chamber of Commerce since 2013.
Ben Orr works as a full-time firefighter & paramedic for a small suburb outside of Chicago. Immediately after high school, he went into the fire service, completing paramedic school by age 18. He soon started working in many different areas of the pre-hospital setting, including Children’s Memorial Hospital, and teaching paramedic school at Loyola University. Northern Seasonal has since grown tremendously over the years because of Ben’s commitment to his customers.
“Trust is everything. I go above and beyond for my customers to make sure that I don't ever lose that. Our customers trust us to make sure that their projects get done in a timely, professional manner. I know we do a very good job living up to those expectations.”
When he’s not at the firehouse or overseeing the daily operations at Northern Seasonal, Ben spends his time with his wife, Nora and their two children, Rose & Aiden.
Father and Son — Aiden got a fireman’s costume for Halloween and had to go to dad's firehouse to show it off!
