Expert Roofing Contractors
Because your roof is so vital to the health of your home, why would you ever trust it to an amateur? Today’s roofs have come along way technologically in recent years. Why you may have used a handyman or carpenter to handle roof repairs in the past, it’s critically important now to employ expert roofers who are well versed and well trained in the wide variety of roofing material options and service techniques of today. This is particularly true in the case of the ever-popular metal roofs. Using uneducated installers puts not only your home at risk, but may jeopardize your warranty and hamper insurance claims, should you need to file one.

Types of Roofing
There has never been a time when more spectacular roofing options have been available. From the exotic to the mainstream, the potential for customization is at an all-time high. Even within the traditional asphalt category, never has there been a greater availability of colors and designs. Let’s take a quick look at some of the more common types of roofs available. Economical to produce, relatively easy to install, and widely available, fiberglass asphalt shingles are by far today’s most popular roofing material.
There are two types of wood roofing: shingles and shakes. Wood shingles are machine-cut and tapered for a crisp appearance. Wood shakes are hand-split, giving them a more rustic look.
Slate roofing is dense rock and is incredibly durable. It is labor-intensive, so costly to install, but gives character unlike any other roofing material. It comes in a wide array of colors and is non-combustible, waterproof and requires virtually no maintenance.
Besides their beauty, tile roofs are exceptionally durable, lasting virtually forever. Individual tiles are molded in barrel shapes for interlocking installation. Tile is very heavy, so it’s necessary to consult an engineer to determine if your roof framing will support tile.
Nothing is more capable of protecting a home from wind, rain, hail, fire, or rot than a durable and energy-efficient metal roof. Forget your vision of an old-time corrugated metal roof. Today’s metal roofing is gorgeous coming in a variety of colors and styles suiting all types of architectural styles.
The popularity of metal roofing has been soaring over the past decade. Due to its exquisite look, metal roofing can turn your home into a jaw-dropping showcase that will become the envy of your neighborhood. Metal roofing comes in a wide variety of styles, largely dependent on the metal used and coatings applied. Aluminum is a metal that needs no coating. Steel, however, requires specialized treatment to prevent rusting. Other metals used for roofing include copper, zinc, stainless steel and titanium which are gorgeous, but highly specialized, and usually very expensive.
Metal roofs make roof replacement a snap, since metal can be installed right over an old roof. Material roofs are lightweight and require little maintenance, usually just an occasional hosing down. They are incredibly durable, lasting up to an amazing 50 years compared to asphalt at around 20 or so. They are virtually fire-proof, offering homeowners a tremendous piece of mind in that regard. Because they are stunning, homes with metal roofs often have a higher resale value than homes with roofs of other materials. They’re also great for the environment, as they are 100 percent recyclable. While metal roofs are higher priced at installation, homeowners can realize a tremendous savings over time as metal roofs are extremely energy efficient. You’ll be shocked by the difference in your average utility bill.
Asphalt Roofing (or Shingle Roofing)
The layered look of asphalt shingles is by far the more popular types of material for residential roofing. The vast majority of homes in the United States have asphalt shingles, possibly because asphalt is the material most builders are comfortable with and what most homeowners are accustomed to seeing on houses.
Asphalt shingles come in a wide variety of colors and can be matched to the paint or brick of a home. With a seemingly endless combination of colors and designs, asphalt offers more options than metal roofing. Asphalt tiles are easier and faster to install than all other forms of roofing, and materials and labor for installation cost less. Asphalt roofs perform well in winter, and overall, are less expensive to repair. Some asphalt tiles are fire-resistant, and they can be recycled. Asphalt roofing is much less expensive, about $60 to $90 per roofing square for three-tab asphalt shingles or $100 to $120 per square for architectural shingles.

Benefits of a New Roof
If you live in an older home, chances are your roof is costing you money. Older roofs that may have holes, patches, drafts, or leaks are not operating at maximum energy efficiency; repairing or replacing your roof may save you money on your heating and air conditioning bill.
A new roof is also a great home improvement project in itself; with an average return on investment of approximately 70%, it practically pays for itself in the event you choose to sell your home. It increases both your property value and your curb appeal – you will have the best-looking home on the block!
Choosing to install a new roof can also reduce your overall stress level. New roofs are often more durable, more cost-efficient, and made of better materials than a roof installed in the ‘60s or ‘70s. By upgrading your roof, you are ensuring your family’s health and safety by preventing mold and mildew that can be caused by tiny leaks in an older roof.
No matter what your reason for choosing to update your roof, you can take comfort in knowing that we will work with you to make sure you get the best roof to suit your needs, your budget, and your timeframe. We stand behind our work, and will install a roof that will survive the harsh Midwestern weather for years to come.
