A roof is designed to protect a building or home from the elements for a long time. It’s one of the last building features to be installed and one of the last to fail. Whether you are building new construction or you’re ready for roof repairs or replacement, you want quality in your roof and your roofing contractor.
Roofing Repairs and Replacements
Severe weather such as hail, heavy snowfall, and high winds poses the biggest threat to a roof. It’s not uncommon to see roofing contractor trucks in a neighborhood that has recently been hit with a storm. Storm damage can range from a few displaced shingles or tiles, dislodged flashing or gutters, deformed or dislodged siding, or broken window components all the way to the complete failure of an entire roof.
In many cases, a roofing contractor can respond to your call for help with a damaged roof in a day or two with the ability to make repairs in only a few days. The repairs may involve removing a small section of roof, reinstalling flashing, and replacing the section of roofing or they may require a complete tearout and replacement of the entire roof. In either case, a good Orland Park roofing contractor will stand behind its work with a workmanship guarantee in addition to the roofing manufacturer’s guarantee.
Commercial and Residential Roofing
Commercial and residential roofing typically differ in design, products, and installation methods. Common residential roofing utilizes composite fiber or asphalt shingles, wood shake, or high-performance architectural tiles made of clay, slate, or stone-coated steel. A quality roofing contractor in Orland Park will answer your questions and will help you select from a variety of different roofing products.
Commercial roof designs generally don’t have the steep pitch that is appropriate for shingles or tiles and therefore use materials that differ from those used in residential roofing. Commercial roofing is subject to commercial-grade specifications. Flat roofs or slightly pitched roofs are common and may use hot tar on flat roofs, rolled composite fiber or asphalt roofing, terracotta on sloped roofs, or metal panels.
