Roof replacement in DuPage County

DuPage County residents are not strangers to the hailstorms, high winds and debri that impacts their homes in the summer and ice buildup on their roofs in the winter. Most roofing systems are designed to take the punishment, but at some point, the materials will begin to fail and a new roof will need to be installed. Fortunately, when that day comes, VIS Exterior is here to walk you through every phase in the process, from the inspection to the completion of the project.

Partnering with the right roofing contractor is the first step toward a long-lasting roofing system that will protect your home and add curb appeal. At VIS Exterior, we’ve worked with residents of homes of varying architectures and roof material type, which means we have the experience necessary to tackle every aspect of a roof replacement project.

Shingle roof replacement

Among the most popular roofing materials on DuPage County homes is asphalt shingles. In some cases, the old shingles can remain as our trusted roofing professionals install a new layer of shingles. If the substructure of the roof needs to be replaced or repaired, we’ll quickly and efficiently strip off the old layer(s) of shingles and make the necessary repairs and install new underlayment and shingles.

When you choose asphalt shingles, there are a variety of sizes, styles and colors from which to choose. VIS Exterior can help you make that decision and come up with the installation plan that will be a custom fit for your home.

Cedar shake roof replacement

If your cedar shake roof has reached the end of its life or if you’re in the market for the stunning aesthetic a cedar shake roof offers, VIS Exterior has the experience to make it happen. A well-maintained cedar roof can last up to 50 years, but it has to be installed correctly.

Projects of these types are complex and require an eye for details, which is why when you make the decision to invest in this type of material, you want to bring in a contractor with proof of their installation abilities.

Roof replacement after hail & wind damage

Whether it is years and years of exposure to the elements or a massive storm that sweeps through your neighborhood, hail and wind are among the most destructive culprits that lead to a roof having to be replaced. With regular inspections, you can stay ahead of catastrophic roof failures with preventative maintenance and repairs. Also, following any sizable storm where you believe hail and wind might have damaged your roof, it’s important to schedule an inspection as quickly as possible, not only because you want to prevent any further damage, but because insurance companies are less likely to cover damage they believe to be old or due to age.

At VIS Exterior, we are prompt in responding to our clients who have experienced hail and wind damage. We know exactly where to look and what to look for and we’ll even work with your insurance adjuster to make sure you’re covered as thoroughly as possible.

So don’t wait – contact us immediately after a storm and we’ll make sure you’re covered.

Roof replacement process

Taking on a roof replacement project is a big deal with many steps involved. However, at VIS Exterior we take all the stress out of the process and thoroughly communicate with our customers through every phase of the project.

Here’s a quick rundown of what most roofing jobs entail:

STEP 1: Preparing job site for work

We make sure windows and garage doors are protected and that trash receptacles are in place to keep the jobsite as clean as possible during installation.

STEP 2: Removal of old roofing material

It isn’t always the case that older roofing material needs to be removed, but when it’s appropriate, our team will quickly and effectively tear off and dispose of the old material before installing the new roofing system.

STEP 3: Decking inspection

The roof decking is an important foundational element to any roofing system. Our inspection will reveal if the decking needs to be repaired or replaced.

STEP 4: New roofing material installation

There are many different types of roofing material that can be installed and we’ll help you make that decision. We have experience installing all types of roofing material, which means we know our way around the complexities involved in all of them.

STEP 5: Site cleanup

Our commitment to customer service includes making sure we leave a job site looking better than it did when we arrived. All project material scraps will be carted away and your foliage will be left unharmed.

STEP 6: Final inspection

To ensure that every detail of the job was completed as advertised, we have established an exhaustive final inspection process, looking at every nook and cranny of the roof for anything out of place. No job is considered completed until everything on the checklist has been satisfied.

Roof replacement cost

Every roof replacement project is different, which is why there is no set-in-stone standard for what it will cost to replace a roof. There are, however, some aspects that will help you get a ballpark number.

For example, larger homes usually have larger roofs, which means they’re going to be on the higher end of the cost estimate. The design of the roof is also impactful.

For example, a steep roof is more difficult to work on, will take longer and will usually mean there is more labor cost involved.

Just about every roof has ventilation structures in it, but if your roof has skylights, gables, or more than the usual number of vents, there will be more labor involved, which means your cost will be higher than a roof with the standard number of obstacles.

Asphalt shingles are one of the most popular roofing materials, likely because of their economical cost. So, the average 2,000-square-foot home undergoing an asphalt replacement will cost between $7,000 and $10,000.

If your roof is pitched anything more extreme than that normal 4.5 percent, you’ll be spending closer to the $10,000 mark. If your roof is not steep and has the standard number of vents and no skylights, your cost will be closer to the low estimate of $7,000.
