Angie's Answers

Wow, i aum surprised you didn't get 10 answers already with roofers say X was the best or N was the best or A was the best. In reality you are focusing on the WRONG THING!

5 estimates? Why 5? Why would you do that to yourself? Normally if you are dealing with reputable companies you don't need more than 2 estimates. I advocate to people to always get at least two estimates and if the roofers are saying something very different or if the roofers are way way way off in price, get an equalizer, get a 3rd.  Obviously if you don't trust a roofer disqualify that roofer immediately.  I beliee you have now fallen into "Analysis Paralysis" which is what happens when you have too many opions.

But back to the topic, I said you are focusing on the wrong thing. Why did I say that? Because you can take the best shingle in the world and if installed wrong is compeltely garbage. i can take the worst shingle, known to fail, and if installed properly will last some ammount of time. So you should focus on the roofer, not the product. The roofer is more important and a good quality roofer will only want to install good quality product.

The roof is a system comprised of many components, not just the shingles. You have the water proofing underlayment such as ice shield, the water resistant underlayments such as felt. You have the shingles, the ventilation and the flashing details. All of these things add up to equal one roof. Neglect one and your roof is doomed to fail.

But the roof is more than just product it is detail, know how and heart. Heart? yes heart. It takes the utmost CARING the utmost DESIRE to want to install a good roof. It's hard work and easy to fall into the train of thought as to do what's easier, instead of what's faster.  Faster and easier seldom ever equals better. At the end of the day you ened a roofer that cares about your roof.

So what product is best? That's hard to say. Each manufacturer has multiple plants and it seems each plant puts out varying levels of quality. I will tell you in my area Atlast is known as a cheap commodity shingle. I have Tamko Heritage on my house but I stopped using it because I was having seal failue issues and at the time they offered no contractor certification program, but I hear they started up one. Ownes corning is a decent product backed by a great company. I don't install very many OC's though. I primarily install CertainTeed Landmark shingles and my feeling is that they are the best on the market in my area. I'm sure others will disagree with me.

But don't miss the point, the roofer is more important than the shingle.
I appreciate the fact that with homeowners like you who want to beat the insurance co out of deductibles, so then my rates and every other homeowners rates can also go up just to save you.....Thanks for NOTHING..[8o|]

Any roofer worth using should be able to do the roof with NO MONEY DOWN.


The only scenario I would ask for a deposit is on a crazy odd ball shingle that had to be special ordered.

The question was, Can it be done? The answer is yes. The real question is "Should" it be done? The answer is, no, not unless it is an emergency.   But also let's clarify winter, because we are having a pretty mild winter, so there's kinda not a problem this year so far. I'll refrence "below freezing" from this point forward.

As a certified and licensed roofing contractor, my reputation is on the line. I debate this topic quite often with other roofing contractors who seem to care more about profit than a job well done.  Well, I can tell you from past experience having been a professional roofer for 14 years as of the time of this posting, that the chance for failure increases exponentionally when installed below freezing.  It's better just not to risk it.

Personally I will not, unless absolutely necessary and the customer signs a disclaimer of limited liability, install a roof below freezing and really really want to install the roof at 40 or above. The shingles need to seal, and will not seal unless they warm to about 70 degrees F ambient temprature. This does not mean it needs to be 70 outside, because the shingles will warm from the sun.  

So what can be done to install the roof below freezing? Well first, the roof should not be gun nailed below freezing. This is because the shingles become brittle and it's easier to "blow through" with your nails. It's also harder to regulate air pressure when it is cold, I speculate because of barometric pressures, but I am just guessing.  Therefore the roof should be hand nailed. This takes more time. Furthermore since the seal strips will not seal, they must be manually sealed with proper compatible adhesives. This will also take more time, and more material. I once spoke with a roofer in Alaska who builds tents around the houses he is working on and covers them with tarps and heats with propane heaters.  Now that takes real time!    The question is, are you prepared to pay for this extra time? Can you wait a few more weeks? 

Roofing reviews in Chicago


The roofers had to remove five layers of roof, including cedar shingles, from our 1896 home. This was a really dirty job on a steep roof. The old layers just disintegrated and dumped sand-like black dirt over everything. The roofers protected my neighbor’s properties and mine with tarps and boards. To my surprise they did an excellent job cleaning up. (I still had to clean up
some, but believe me, they did the
Chicago Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
’s share on that!) The roofers were also covered with the black stuff. The job was not easy, and they also installed all new sheathing on the main roof because we only had, the original to the house, spaced deck boards on the main roof. These guys worked two twelve-hour days in getting the house roof done. They spent another half day doing the garage roof. They are very hard workers, and they are very polite and respectful.
They also found, upon removing the roof layers and tar, on the main roof, that my chimney was in really bad condition so they had a mason come and repair the chimney.
They also did some gutter work on the east side of our property, and they did some siding work for us.
These guys worked fast and did a good job. They really do know what they are doing. It looks great!
There were a couple of issues:
-The repairs to the chimney were made and apparently the masons had cut away some newly installed sheathing to do the repairs and then they just covered that with tar paper and flashing. We could see the sheathing gap and light coming in through the
attic. We let the roofers know, and they did promptly come back to fix that. We had another company, that specializes in chimneys, come to inspect the rest of the chimney, and to give us a quote on a liner, and they said the work on the chimney and the flashing and shingling around the chimney were done really well, so we are happy with that!
-Another group of guys, not the roofers, did the gutters and we also had to have them come back and make some minor adjustments.
-Also, we have flashing on our lower back roof, which matches our light colored siding. The roofers used dark brown caulk on the nail holes there and, when coming in the house from the garage, it looked like there was some kind of fringe or ragged
shingles running along the place were the wall meets the roof. My husband and I painted the caulk spots to match the flashing and now it looks very nice and finished.
-They also broke a side storm window. I’m actually surprised that, with five layers of roofing coming down on a steep roof with no solid sheathing, they only broke one. There was a lot of material on the roof from the last hundred years. The window was an easy fix and they paid for it.
-We ordered the upgrade to Tiger Paw synthetic underlayment for the main house, but the roofers only used it on the main roof. I noticed that they installed felt on the front overhang and lower back roof.
Chicago Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
gave us a credit for that.

All these issues are relatively minor, and
Chicago Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
was more than helpful and very willing to work with us. He is very responsive to any inquires and calls, so we didn’t have to wait around for an answer. Also, the siding work they did for us was a true bonus.
I doubt anyone else would have wanted to do it. The front overhang was re-roofed a decade ago and the roofers did a sloppy job. They left a gap where the siding j-channel meets the roofing materials. It looked awful. Those roofers said there was no way they could fix that.
Chicago Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
, and
Chicago Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
, helped us with that and, through some creative strategies, they were able to make that area on the front of our home look a hundred times better.
All in all we are very happy with the work and would hire them again.

- Ann P.

They were punctual but upon taking a quick look at the sidewalk determined that the job was too small to bid on. I was told that they generally do not take jobs involving less than 350 square feet. The sidewalk we needed replaced is only about 130 square feet. When we discussed on the phone before setting up the estimate I only explained that I needed a sidewalk along the side of the condo building replaced and did not provide dimensions (nor was I asked for them). When I explained that it would have been helpful to know their policy before taking off work to meet the provider for the estimate, I was told they can only work with the information they are given. I noted that the following appears on their website without mention of a minimum requirement:
"Chicago concrete tends to be a “big” business: big trucks, big jobs, big prices. As a homeowner, your residential concrete project deserves just as much attention as the big industrial and commercial contracts targeted by most concrete companies.
As licensed and insured residential concrete contractors in Chicago,
Chicago Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
can provide the same level of quality and service as a commercial company, without the industrial grade price tag. Whether you are looking for a small patio or a large driveway, your concrete job is guaranteed to get the respect it deserves."
Based on this I made sure to ask about minimum square footage requirements when setting up other estimates and did not run into the same issue elsewhere, so if you're looking for someone to do a small job make sure to ask about this.
- Ryan B.

The company sent out a representative to my house to see the porch roof. After a week or so the company gave me an estimate. I subsequently got two more estimates. I found the company's price to be the highest of the three. I communicated once with the company by email and received a reply. When I tried to ask more questions via email, the company did not respond. I decided not to hire the company for the job.

'the deal, was for 250.00 of roof patching for 90.00. They did nothing except send an amateur to walk around the roof and put together enough info for his boss to suggest a multi thousand dollar roofing job on a 5 year old, new construction. This was nothing but a scam to get themselves into our house. I had to call the owner, or manager back so they would at least do the minimal patching work on a few seams in the rubber roof, which I ended up doing myself because they took weeks to come back and there was rain on the way. When they DID finally arrive, they painted white rubber over my silver roof, making it look like a carnival. Do not hire these desperate scam artists. 'Professional' they are not. Keep them away from your roof !
- natalia F.

They were punctual, coordinated with other tradesmen, were professional, reliable, took pride in their work, involved us in decisions as to look as appropriate. We would use them again on such a large job where cosmetics were a concern.
The cost was under six-figures. Work was performed as estimated/in line with budget.
- Catherine G.

This review is a long time coming. We had our roof replaced in October 2012. The beginning was great.
Chicago Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
Wood ( the owner) was very prompt and personal with our estimate and time of project completion. He and his crew did a very professional job with our roof as far as completion and clean up.

The problems began a few weeks later when it began to rain. We have two vent stacks, one on each side of the roof. Both of them leaked around the stacks into the attic. I called
Chicago Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
and in the beginning he was very professional and responsive to our issues. His foreman Remik came out several times (in the end 6 times) to try and repair the leaks around our vent stacks. They did finally repair one of the two stacks so it stopped leaking.

The second vent stack was never fixed and I spoke with Mr.
Chicago Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
regarding the issue for the last time on the phone in September 2013. Yes 1 year later! He was verbally rude with several curse words towards me and told me that this was not a roofing problem. "It is a plumbing problem." Our roof only started leaking after the roof was replaced, but we contacted a plumber anyway. I have it in writing that it is NOT a plumbing problem. That being said I contacted a different roofing company who fixed the leak around the vent stack the first time they came out.

Fast forward to winter of 2014, my roof is less than 3 years old. We developed another leak at the corner of the
Chicago Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
. I did not contact Mr
Chicago Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
Wood due to his severe lack of professionalism at our last conversation. We went with the same company that repaired the second vent stack leak. They came out and repaired all four corners of both dormers because on inspection they stated it was shoddy roofing work, usually done when cutting corners. After the other company's repair of
Chicago Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
's work, the
Chicago Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
has not leaked to date.

So in 3 years I have paid an additional $1000 to fix his mistakes. I am aware that my roof comes with a guarantee, BUT I will not be taking advantage of the guarantee and will never use
Chicago Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
again. I recommend that no one use his service.

- Anne S.

They showed up on time and got the job done. The only reason for the b grades is they did have to come back the next week to fix some leaks, but they did so promptly and without question.

is a Nice guy to deal with. Even though the job took more material to complete he agreed to charge the same amount originally quoted.

In 2012 our home sustained significant damage from a hailstorm. We secure the services of

after seeing the results of work they'd done for one of our neighbors. The work was covered by our insurance company and
Chicago Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked

worked to make this possible. In the end we were very satisfied with the work provided by
