Residential Roofing near Frankfort, Illinois
Allied Restoration Contractors is a roofing company that serves Frankfort and surrounding areas. Our main office is located in Tinley Park, which makes Frankfort just a short drive away.
Here is the typical process we follow at Allied for roof replacements:
1. Initial Roof Inspection
We perform a thorough inspection of your roof initially to assess the actual damage. Sometimes, a roof leak can be resolved with a cheap repair. However, if there is significant damage to your roof, we will recommend a roof replacement.
2. Select Type of Shingles
You will need to choose what type of shingles to use on your new roof. We offer installation of standard architectural shingles (an economical option), premium designer shingles, and cedar shake shingles. We install metal roofs as well.
3. Remove Old Roof Materials
On the day we start your roof replacement, we will begin by removing the old shingles. We will also remove the old flashing and underlayment. We will bring a dumpster to throw all the old materials into.
Depending on the condition of your roof decking (the bottom layer that holds up other roof materials), it may need to be replaced as well.
4. Install New Materials
We will install all your new roofing materials including underlayment, flashing, and shingles. We will also install vents, and any other roofing features you’ve requested such as skylights.
5. Clean Up Job Site
After the job is complete, we’ll clean up the job site. Here are a few things we do to ensure that you’re left with a clean area when we’re done:
- Blow out debris from your gutters
- Clean up any debris from the yard
- Remove our dumpster
- Go over your yard with roller magnets to pick up stray nails that may have fallen
Ensuring a Quality Roofing Job
We take care to make sure that our jobs are done right. Every job is supervised by the owner, George Musa, to help ensure we hold to the highest standards of quality.
High Quality Roofing Materials
A roof can’t be any better than the quality of materials used. We use high quality shingles from manufacturers such as GAF, CertainTeed, and Owens Corning.
We also use new synthetic underlayment that’s known to perform significantly better than the old felt style of underlayment.
Installation by Certified Roofing Contractors
It’s important to have skilled workers installing your new roof. Even with high quality roofing materials, poor installation can cause problems. We have high quality, certified contractors to perform our roofing installations.
Typical Roof Replacement Costs
Most of the roofs we install typically end up in the $10k to $20k price range. Here are a few factors that will impact the roof replacement cost:
Bigger roofs require more time and materials to replace, and this increases the cost.
A big consideration is roof steepness. Particularly steep roofs are more risky and time consuming to install.
Roof steepness is measured in pitch. A 4/12 pitch, for example, would be a roof that inclines by 4 inches for every 12 inches inward.
Most roofs are between a 3/12 pitch and a 7/12 pitch, which is fairly walkable. However, steeper roofs with an 8/12 pitch or above will be more difficult and cost more to install.
The complexity of your roof depends on how many individual surfaces it has.
These surfaces are called facets, and several facets together make up the overall shape of your roof. A pyramid, for example, has 4 facets. A completely flat roof would only have 1 facet.
Most Illinois roofs have simple shapes and only have about 2-6 facets. More than that, however, will increase the cost of the roof.

Number of Stories
Roof jobs on taller homes require more work to install. One-story homes are relatively simple to install, but it will cost more to replace the roof on two or three story homes.
Type of Shingles
The shingles you use can impact cost dramatically. Architectural shingles will put you in the standard cost range, but you can expect to pay a premium for designer shingles or cedar shake shingles.
Roof Decking Condition
If your roof decking is in good condition, it won’t need to be replaced. However if there is rot or sagging, you will probably need new roof decking. This incurs an additional cost, and unfortunately we won’t know for sure until we remove the old roofing materials.
Summary of Typical Costs
In summary, if you have a smaller, simpler roof that isn’t very steep, your cost will likely be closer to $10,000. If you have a larger, more complex roof that’s more steep, your cost will likely be closer to $20,000.

What Customers Are Saying
If you need a new roof, you should call ARC. George (the owner) made the whole process so much easier for us. Any project is stressful enough so I appreciated his hard work. We ended up filing a claim with our home owners insurance, as we had some storm damage. He worked with the insurance adjusters to make sure we were taken care of. And dealt with things I didn’t understand. He is very knowledgeable as he has been doing this for many years. I was stressed about picking out the right roof color (I didn’t care for the old roof) and he took that concern seriously and helped by showing us other houses he had worked on recently. We chose the perfect color! We also had a special order skylight that was being replaced and George measured a few times to make sure it was accurate and made sure the right skylight was installed. The work was done quickly and stress free thanks to George.
Great company! George and his team were fantastic. They handled everything from getting the work approved through my insurance and then quickly getting the job scheduled and completed. Hassle-free experience with ARC. Thanks
I recently used Allied Restoration Contractors for siding installation and gutter/soffit/fascia replacement. I am very satisfied with the product and service received. Everyone is very nice and responsive. The workmanship is A+. I really appreciate the attention I received from George, in helping me make the right decisions for my home. I have already recommended the company to others and will continue to do so. I’ll definitely reach out again for my next home project.
Types of Roofs We Install
We offer a variety of standard shingle styles for maximum water resistance, durability, and budget-friendliness. There are a variety of different styles and colors available for you to choose from. The right color can add flourish and curb appeal to your home. The vast majority of Illinois homeowners choose shingle roofs, and most standard asphalt shingles last between 15-30 years.
Premium Designer Shingles
We offer a premium selection of designer shingles for homeowners who are looking for something with a little more glamor. The cost for luxury designer shingles is higher. However, typically designer shingles are thicker, which means some of the cost is recouped due to higher durability and a longer-lasting roof.
Cedar shake roofs serve the same function as asphalt roofs, but are made of natural cedar materials, giving the roof a more traditional and aesthetically pleasing appearance. Typically cedar roofs last between 30-50 years with proper maintenance. If you have the budget, cedar roofs are a beautiful option!
For homeowners on a budget, we install standard, high-quality asphalt shingles from GAF, CertainTeed, or Owens Corning.
Make a statement and go for a more distinguished look with high-end designer shingles.
For a classic, beautiful look, we install cedar shake shingles.

Signs it Might Be Time to Replace Your Roof
Here are the biggest warning signs it's time to replace your roof:
1. Attic Leak
You can often spot a leak in your attic by what looks like coffee stains on the top floor of your home. This is water that leaks from the ceiling and usually becomes discolored with a brownish hue. Alternatively, you can head up into your attic and see if you spot any visible leaks. But be careful not to fall through the insulation, as not all attics are designed to be walked in. If your roof has a leak, you should get a roof inspection right away. You'll either need to replace your roof or have the leak patched with a simple repair.
2. Sagging Roof
As roofs age and the roof decking becomes less sound, they can begin to sag. This is a sign that your roof is very warn and may need to be replaced soon. If unsound roofs are left unattended for long enough, leaks can form and cause even more damage to the interior of your home.
3. Recent Hail Storm
Even if a hail storm doesn't cause an immediate leak, they can cause other damage that 's less apparent. For example, they can knock granules off of your roof shingles, leading to your shingles deteriorating more quickly. Unless it's a very minor hail storm with tiny bits of hail, calling out a roofer after a hail storm for an inspection is a good precaution to take.
