Cedar Shake Roof Replacement in Glencoe

Natural cedar roofs are some of the most durable roofs possible, at least in the first several years of their lifespan. That quickly changes as the cedar starts to age, wear out, and slowly disintegrate. While cedar roof replacements are very popular, there is noticeable trend of homeowner who replace their old cedar shake roofs with composite products to increase the roof's life expectancy and appearance.

The main culprit behind the slow move away from natural cedar shake is the change in the Chicagoland climate, particularly the north shore area. Cedar shake roofs in the Glencoe, Northfield, Wilmette, and Winnetka area are aging faster than before due to the increased swings in temperature between summer and winter, and the increased moisture. Both of these affect the natural abilities of cedar to seal, since cedar roofs are natural and go through cycles of absorbing water and drying out. When cedar shake roofs stay wet for longer periods of time, they begin to wear out faster and in many cases grow moss, which damages the shake even more. This is not the case with composite shake alternatives, such as Brava Shake or DaVinci Shake. Composite materials never absorb water and are much more impervious to the temperature changes. Natural cedar shake also gets thinner with age as running water slowly wears away at the natural wood. Composite alternatives also do not run into this issue, allowing them to last much longer than natural cedar. 

Despite these shortcomings, cedar roof replacements in Glencoe, Winnetka, and Northfield are on the rise, and some homeowners are still replacing old cedar with new natural cedar shake. While there are issues with cedar roofs, there are also a myriad of benefits. New natural cedar shake roofs are beautiful for one. New cedar is also very good at providing an insulating barrier due to the natural oils that are present in the cedar itself. Since natural wood can swell when wet, cedar roofs provide additional waterproofing during rains, closing any possible gaps in the roof, whether the cedar is old or new. 

We at Smart Roofing always believe in helping homeowners choose the right material for their roof. In many cases, a natural cedar shake roof will perform well for the expected life span of 20-30 years, and homeowners are more than happy knowing they have a natural product on their roof that will last for decades. That was the decision this homeowner made when performed this cedar shake roof replacement in Glencoe. The appearance of new cedar, combined with new copper valleys fabricated in our own sheet metal shop, plus the benefits of natural cedar, and the expected life span convinced this homeowner to choose natural over composite. The end result is a gorgeous roof that will last for a long time without any worries, providing a sophisticated aesthetic and exceptional waterproofing. 

 We also recommend that all homeowners, not just ones in the North Shore area, have their cedar roofs inspected often if they are over 20 years old. This proactive approach can prevent unnecessary headaches if the cedar roof is aging. We have performed numerous cedar shake roof replacements in Northfield, Winnetka, and Glencoe in the last few years, as many of the homes were built 20-30 years ago, and the cedar shake roofs in Winnetka, Glencoe, and Northfield are nearing the end of their lifespan. Whether homeowners decide to proceed with replacement of natural cedar shake in the North Shore area and choose composite shake or natural shake, we make sure they get the best roof they can.

Commercial Metal Roofing in Chicago

This standing seam steel roof in Chicago was the most recent metal roof installation completed by our sheet metal and metal roofing crews. With the metal roof panels fabricated in our shop out of 24 gauge, pre-finished, steel sheets, from Petersen Aluminum, our crews were able to make sure that the panels were made to the right specifications. Another advantage of having an experienced sheet metal crew along with our own brakes, is that we can make all the necessary metal trim pieces and metal flashing to our specifications. This helps us know that we are doing a great job and installing a steel roof that will live up to the expectations of the commercial property owner in Chicago.

Aside from installing a beautiful metal roof on this commercial property in Chicago, we also installed new flush soffit panels from PAC-CLAD, as well as a custom-made fascia on the guardhouse. Custom-made channels, specific spacers, and accommodations for recessed can lights and cameras were all part of the details our crews needed to keep track of. In the same Evergreen color as the standing seam metal roof, these soffit panels and fascia tied the guardhouse to the main structure just as the architect wanted. Altogether this was a beautiful metal roof in Chicago along with a beautiful soffit and fascia installation.

Bolingbrook Shingle Roof Replacement

The roofing experts at Smart Roofing, Inc. recently did a roof replacement in Bolingbrook. The aging asphalt shingle roof was more cost effective to replace with all new accessories as opposed to doing roof repairs. From necessary roof deck replacement, to new galvanized steel chimney flashings, new bathroom vents, and a new roof ventilation system, to new gutters and RainDrop gutter guards, we were able to install a whole new GAF asphalt shingle roof system. All the details matter with a new roof, and we pride ourselves on using only the best materials available.

As part of our full service roof replacement, we installed a new roof ventilation system, which is essential to extending the life of your roof, especially when combined with the GAF System Plus warranty. The existing roof plywood had to be replaced and a space was cut in to allow air to circulate. We then installed the GAF Cobra Snow Country Advanced ridge vent, and covered it with TimberTex, a reinforced hip and ridge asphalt shingle. This new shingle roof in Bolingbrook is now covered by a 50-year warranty, and we at Smart Roofing, Inc. were more than happy to help the homeowner have peace of mind when it comes to the roof.

Tile Roof Replacement in Oak Brook

Replacing a tile roof is a rare occurrence in a homeowner's life due to the longevity of real tile roofs, but we are always happy to help when the need arises. The replacement of this tile roof in Oak Brook was due to weather related damage, and the homeowner needed to get it done fast. That is where our expert tile installation crews came in.

We began by removing the existing concrete tile from the roof and installing a temporary roof using a high temperature synthetic roofing underlayment. Concrete roofing tile is much more fragile and has a shorter life expectancy than terra cotta, clay, tile due to the fact that concrete tile can absorb moisture with time. This is why the homeowner decided to install new Ludowici clay tile on their home in Oak Brook. Ludowici's LudoSlate clay tile is a great light weight option for replacement of a concrete tile. LudoSlate offers superior durability, longevity, and a much more refined look that will last much longer than concrete tile would. After installing new copper flashings and trim pieces, our tile installation crew began installing the LudoSlate clay tile. Replacing the existing skylights with new Velux solar powered skylights and custom made Velux curb mounted skylights also helped bring sunlight into the home. New aluminum gutters and downspouts along with a RainDrop leaf guard system will also provide worry and clog free water drainage for this beautiful tile roof. The end result of this tile replacement in Oak Brook speaks for itself.
