Building Specialties Inc.
Our Story

Company History

Building Specialties Inc. has operated in Alaska since 1996; however, its true beginning started in Minnesota in 1976 as Baker Construction & Roofing.  John Baker started this business and grew it into a successful corporation providing commercial, government and residential construction services.  Then, John Baker moved his family and business to Alaska in 1996, where the business was renamed to Building Specialties.  John has since operated in Anchor Point and has aspired to grow the business and the community.   John's two sons, Josh and Jacob, have joined him in this venture; so that together they can bring the best quality, proficiency and customer service to their clients.
