About ME

About Richard Spanton Jr.



Richard Spanton Jr began...

Richard Spanton Jr., CEO of AccuLynx, has been a part of the roofing/restoration marketplace for more than a decade and knows that market inside and out. His experience in building enduring businesses, passion for emerging technology and dedication to growing his community positioned him well to grow AccuLynx into the leading business management software for all specialty trade contractors.

Spanton also owns Mastercraft Exteriors, one of the largest national restoration contractors in the country that specializes in re-roofing homes in disaster areas. Mastercraft typically restores 2-3,000 homes per year, employing and subcontracting around 300 workers. With the ability to mobilize a workforce quickly, Mastercraft provides unrivaled service and communication along with a thorough follow-up process that ensures homeowner satisfaction in what can be a very stressful time. Mastercraft prides itself on being a trustworthy business with a stellar reputation and also gives back to the communities it serves, and because of that has become a national leader in storm damage restoration.

Richard Spanton Jr. and Chrissie Spanton started Orchard Ridge Farms in 2006 being dedicated to the organic approach to the land. The dream for Richard was to have an apple orchard, now the 130 acre private estate is home to an apple orchard, The Pavilion, Copperstone Inn and several barns. We want to show the world that YES, apples can be grown organically here in the Midwest.

Orchard Ridge Farms is also home to an Award Winning Bed and Breakfast, Copperstone Inn. In June of 2006, Rich drew the inn on a pad of paper, with incredible detail. The drawing has each room laid out, the furniture, type of roof slope, and the exterior. Copperstone inn took 3 years to complete and now is a seven room bed and breakfast. The staff at Copperstone Inn are the ultimate hosts in creating a positively, memorable wedding weekend. Copperstone Inn includes a mini-spa, theater area, hideaway bar, gourmet breakfasts, outdoor fireplace and Jacuzzi room. Copperstone Inn was featured in Midwest Living as one of the top 25 Bed and Breakfasts in the Midwest.

The Pavilion was established in 2010 after many requests from guests for a reception spot on the farm. Richard and his wife took on the project to build a rustic and elegant venue for weddings in IL. The Pavilion at Orchard Ridge Farms features two outdoor ceremony sites with breathtaking views of the rolling estate. The professional staff will ensure that your event has the up most service for a truly unforgettable experience.

Rich resides on his 130-acre apple farm with his wife Chrissie and young son. He plays in numerous men’s hockey leagues, enjoys golf, hunting and helping contractors succeed.

“The best way to predict the future is to create it.”
