It was a pleasure to give these Minooka, IL homeowners the great looking red roof of their dreams!
How can you tell if you have hail damage? You can look for obvious visible signs like missing pieces of the roof, bruising in the shingles, and cracking in the shingles. However, these signs are not always visible from the ground and can be quite subtle. That's why the best way to tell if you have hail damage is to get the help of an experienced and trustworthy roofing contractor.
This is exactly what Denise of Antioch, IL did when she gave My-Pros a call following a huge hail storm which had caused immediate leaks in her roof. Our crew was quickly on the scene and we installed emergency tarping to keep water out of the home while Denise went through the insurance claims process for her roof replacement.
After the insurance claim was approved, our crew quickly got to work on her roof replacement. We started by tearing off the old roofing shingles from her damaged roof and then installed a synthetic ice and water underlayment. With the protective underlayment in place we proceeded to install the quality asphalt roofing shingles that Denise had chosen, CertainTeed Landmark shingles in the color Weathered Wood. With the new shingles installed Denise can now enjoy the benefits of a beautiful new replacement roof that will keep her home safe for many years to come!
Many homeowners wonder "how do I know if my roof is leaking?" Or, more generally, "how do I know my roof has a problem?" Roof damage is often subtle, but there are some signs you can look out for like water stains, drips, spots on exterior walls, and missing shingles. In the case of Kevin W. of Johnsburg, IL it was the squirrels living in his attic that started to tip him off. When the pest control professionals visited they told him there was serious hail damage to his shingles. He immediately contacted My-Pros and one of our Pros, Craig, was quickly on the scene. As you might expect, Craig quickly discovered Kevin's roof was in bad shape. Besides hail damage and a myriad of other problems, Kevin's roof was also aging rapidly and there were even granules coming off the roof exposing nails on the ridges.
Craig got Kevin's roof replacement approved by his insurance adjuster and we got to work. Our team arrived quickly and immediately set to work removing the existing shingles. Once the old roof was removed we installed a synthetic underlayment and ice and water shield around the eaves and other water-susceptible areas. We then installed beautiful replacement asphalt shingles. Kevin went with CertainTeed Landmark shingles in the color mission Brown. Not only does Kevin now have a beautiful new replacement roof, there's also no sign of squirrels in the attic!
The customer had purchased a new home 14 months ago and the roof started leaking in spots causing drywall damage. The homeowner was frustrated with the home inspector who said nothing about the condition of the roof. My-Pros gave an estimate on spot during the first appointment explaining what was wrong with the roof and how we are going to make sure the new roof won't leak again.
While tearing off two layers of old roofing we had discovered that five sheets of plywood had to be replaced due to water damage on the decking. After the new sheets of wood were installed My-Pros installed Ice/Water Shield & a Synthetic Underlayment beneath the new CertainTeed Landmark shingle in Colonial Slate color. The new roof comes with a 130 MPH wind warranty.
Something we are proud of that we do on every roof is install a true hip & ridge cap shingle on the peaks of the home. By doing so the color matches perfectly and the ridge cap shingles will last the length of the rest of the roof.
Every successful roof replacement starts with the selection of a reliable, trusted roofing contractor. That is exactly why Keith A. of Harvard, IL decided to call My-Pros. We arrived promptly and provided a thorough roof inspection and a free roof replacement cost estimate. Keith was impressed and, with his approval, we began the roof replacement process. He chose CertainTeed Landmark shingles in the color Mission Brown with a 5-star warranty. Since Keith is a veteran, he also received a $250 rebate from CertainTeed. Now Keith has a replacement roof he can rely on for years to come!
