Returning to the North Shore is something we always enjoy. Partly because of how nice the area is, and partly because it almost feels like a second home to us. This recent multi-family flat roof replacement in Lake Forest went so smoothly and efficiently because of this. Our expert flat roof crews are always very detailed and efficient, and being near the lake, from Lake Bluff, to Riverwoods, Highland Park, Winnetka, Wilmette, and of course Lake Forest, just adds a little extra energy.
The flat roofs we recently replaced on these town homes in Lake Forest were done to architect specifications and will ensure that they look and perform at their best. Starting with a recovery board, topped with polyiso insulation, and a top layer of adhered commercial Carlisle EPDM membrane, this roof will provide waterproofing, additional insulation, and even reduce the audible noise. Using a full Carlisle roof system along with all recommended EPDM accessories allows us to provide a 20-year warranty for the entire flat roof replacement. Alongside the membrane roof replacement, we also had our sheet metal crew fabricate custom copper copings and copper overflow boxes. The copper copings are essential perimeter flashings to ensure proper water and ice shedding, and the copper overflows make sure that the roof never floods if the drains become clogged. The homeowner association also requested that we replace the custom Velux skylights on some of the units and perform masonry repairs on the chimneys. What may seem like a complicated community flat roof replacement in Lake Forest, was a perfect challenge to keep our crews motivated.

The north suburbs are almost our second home. Having done many roof replacements in Highland Park, Winnetka, Wilmette, Lake Forest, Evanston, Glencoe, and Kenilworth, we know exactly how important roofs are. While the classic residential homes are some of the most well designed anywhere in the Chicagoland area, commercial and multi-family buildings are just as important to the north suburbs. Housing many of the local residents, the flat roofs on these commercial buildings need to be perfect. That is precisely where the expertise of Smart Roofing Inc. comes in.
One of our recent commercial flat roof replacements in the north suburbs was in Highland Park. A multi-family property had issues with the existing modified bitumen roof leaking in multiple spots. The roof being over 25 years old, it was due time for a replacement. Having worked with associations, property managers, and roof consultants before, this project was right up our alley. We met with the roof consultant and helped with the initial roof assessment. After receiving the written specifications, we met with all necessary parties, and proceeded with the commercial roof replacement.
As a multi-family flat roof, there were many elements involved that needed additional flashings and details. From multiple air conditioning units, to skylights, to the roof hatch, and flat roof drains, our experienced crews knew exactly what they were getting into. Tearing off the roof in sections to ensure that none of the famous Chicagoland weather would catch us by surprise, we made quick work of the multi-family flat roof replacement. Since the northern suburbs, and Highland Park specifically, have high standards for roofing, we needed to be efficient and safe. Once the old modified bitumen flat roof was torn off, our crews proceeded to install tapered polyiso insulation, creating proper roof slopes, and covering the roof with Carlisle EPDM flat roof membrane. During this process we also had to work with several other trades that made sure the roof would work with their respective elements. HVAC contractors were necessary to disconnect and connect the air conditioning units, while plumbers were necessary to renovate the old commercial flat roof drains. One the flat roof membrane was done, and all the penetrations were properly flashed in, the perimeter flashings were left. Sheet metal work is one of our strongest points, along with general roof replacements, and sheet metal copings for commercial flat roofs are something of a specialty. This project required copings in different sizes, colors, and angles, and our sheet metal crew had no hesitations with fabricating those custom copings. Once installed, and tying in the whole flat roof together, we were very proud of our work.
With a final inspection with the roof consultant approved and out of the way, the only thing left was for Smart Roofing Inc. to look back at this commercial flat roof replacement in Highland Park, and appreciate the opportunity for show our respect for the North Shore area, and its attention to quality.

Here at Smart Roofing Inc., we are not only professional roofers, we are professional builders as well. The knowledge of building envelopes and moisture prevention details gives us a whole different perspective on roofing, and all the elements that roofs tie into. Seeing row homes built from ground to roof helps us realize the process, and puts a bigger emphasis on making sure that the roof we install protects all the hard work of other trades.
Our recently finished multi-family EPDM flat roofs on Park Terrace Row Homes in Mount Prospect, are only one specific example of the process we are so familiar with. Having been there when the plot of land was being excavated for foundations, to the frame work being built, to the roof installation, and the final interior work, we have been there at every step of construction. Having met the carpenters, electricians, plumbers, insulation, and drywall crews, we were very involved in these buildings. We knew that when we install our new EPDM flat roofs, that they need to be installed perfectly. Not only to not compromise the other contractors' work, but also to leave the future owners with a peace of mind that their new home will last for decades. With an average of R-30 value insulation, proper roof slopes, and Carlisle EPDM flat roof membrane, along with new gutters and downspouts, we know that this commercial flat roof will not cause any problems in such beautiful buildings.
