Roofing Company Near Oak Lawn, Illinois
Are you looking for a good roof replacement contractor? At Allied Restoration Contractors, we serve the Oak Lawn area and provide expert roofing services.
Not only can we help with your roof replacement, but we can help you file and manage insurance claims.
Here’s what our process looks like:
1. Roof Condition Assessment
We begin each project by assessing the condition of your roof. If your leak is caused by a simple issue, and hasn’t done major damage, you may just need an inexpensive repair. This initial inspection will help us determine if a roof replacement is right for you.
2. Select Type of Shingles
Whether you’re looking for an economic option, or high-end designer shingles, we can help you with your selection. We’ll take your wants and needs into account, along with your budget, and provide our expert advice.
3. Remove Old Shingles and Underlayment
When it’s time to replace your roof, we’ll start by tearing off the old shingles, flashing, and underlayment. Once we get down to the roof decking (the sheathing layer that holds all other roofing materials) we’ll be able to assess its condition.
If your roof decking is still in great condition, we can proceed to install the new materials on top of it. However, if your roof decking has started to rot, it may be best to replace it altogether. This incurs an additional cost, but will help preserve your roof in the long run.
4. Install New Shingles and Other Materials
We will install the new underlayment, shingles, flashing, and other roof features like vents and skylights.
5. Project Clean Up
Once the new roof is completed, we’ll clean up the project. We clean out your gutters with a leaf blower, clean up debris from the yard, and go over your yard with roller magnets to collect any nails that may have fallen during installation.
Ensuring a Roofing Job Well Done
There are two critical ways we help ensure you are left with a high quality roof when all is said and done.
1. High Quality Shingles
We use high quality shingles from manufacturers like GAF, Owens Corning, and CertainTeed. Your roof can’t be better than the materials used, so using high quality shingles is crucial to extending the life of your roof.
2. Installation Performed by Experts
Roofing materials including shingles and flashing need to be carefully installed to function properly. Installations that aren’t seamless can lead to leaks and potentially other problems. That’s why at Allied Restoration Contractors, we use certified roofing professionals to perform the installation.
We’re so confident in our installation abilities, we offer roofing warranties of up to 50 years on select roofs!
Calculating Roof Replacement Cost
Typically the cost to replace your roof from Allied Restoration Contractors will fall somewhere between $10,000 and $20,000 based on a few factors. Here are 5 factors to help you calculate what your roof replacement will cost:
1. The Size of Your Roof
The larger your roof is, the more materials are required and the longer installation will take. This will increase the cost of your roof replacement.
2. The Steepness of Your Roof
Steep roofs are more risky and time consuming to work on. The steeper your roof is, the more expensive it will be to replace.
Roof steepness is typically measured in pitch. A 12/12 pitch would mean that the roof inclines 12 inches for every 12 inches of length. This would be a perfect 45-degree angle.
Most roofs are between a 3/12 and 7/12 pitch. These ranges are considered walkable. However, an 8/12 pitch and above are more risky and have to be treated with more care.
3. How Many Facets Your Roof Has
Most roofs have between 2-6 facets. A facet is a single flat surface on a roof. Most roofs have several facets that make up its overall shape (unless your roof is completely flat, in which case it would have 1 facet.)
The more facets your roof has, the more complex it is to replace. Facets all meet at angles, and many times these angles require additional flashing. These angles also mean that more shingles have to be cut into - increasing the waste factor.
Overall, the more facets - individual surfaces - your roof has, the more it will cost to replace.

4. How Many Stories Your Home Has
It can be more risky and time consuming to replace roofs on taller homes. If you live in a 2 or 3 story home, you can expect it to cost more to replace your roof.
5. The Condition of Your Roof Decking
If your roof decking needs to be replaced, this can incur an additional cost. If your decking is in particularly bad condition, it may not be a good idea to install new roofing materials directly on top of it. Unfortunately, the condition of the roof decking can’t be fully assessed until
To accurately determine the cost of your Oak Lawn roof replacement, we will need to do a roof condition assessment.
However, these factors can serve as a general guide. Smaller roofs, with less steepness and less facets, will be closer to $10,000 to replace. Larger roofs, that are more steep and complex, will be closer to $20,000 to replace.

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.

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.

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.
