Most homes throughout Illinois and Wisconsin have asphalt shingle roofs. Asphalt roofing is durable, handsome, and one of the most affordable choices there is for a reliable roofing system backed by strong manufacturer and workmanship warranties. Generally speaking, there are two basic types of asphalt roofing–shingles made of composite materials and fiberglass-base shingles. Fiberglass shingles look exactly like asphalt shingles, but they have a fiberglass base mat and less asphalt, which makes them more lightweight.
Beautiful composite slate roofs or cedar shake roofing doesn’t have to be mined or harvested, since today’s innovative manufacturers have developed remarkable alternatives that look and perform as well or better than the real thing! Specialty brands like Davinci make synthetic slate tiles, composite cedar shake, and other high-end materials often referred to as “architectural” roofing. These products often cost more, but can prove to be more durable and economical in the long run, plus they look magnificent on a fine Park Ridge, Barrington, or Winneka home, just to name a few of the communities we have served with our specialty roofing installation.
Metal is a popular alternative to shingles. It is lightweight and durable, and performs well in the widely diverse weather conditions which are so typical to Illinois and Wisconsin from summer through winter. The styles of Metal roofing aren’t limited to the wavy corrugated panels that most people are familiar with atop the old barns and farmhouses of the Upper Midwest, but also include sleek, contemporary standing seam metal roofing and even metal shingles!
Cedar shake roofing provides a warm, traditional look to a home. It’s no wonder why so many property owners settle for nothing but the real thing. Over centuries, cedar roofing has proven to be resilient and new cedar roofing is better than ever, thanks to cutting edge coatings and treatment that make the materials look great and last longer.
Composite slate is the ultimate roofing for the right type of home. Because slate is a naturally heavy product, not all home structures can support the weight, and a synthetic slate such as Davinci Slate may be a viable alternative. Nevertheless, real slate is a luxury and choice that can protect a home like no other roofing material can.
