PSA to Tinley Park residents: please be careful to do your research on door knockers that show up at your home after a storm. In general, it’s best practice to go with a local company. Many roofing companies, referred to in the industry as “storm chasers” travel from state to state after heavy storms. While they may do good work, it’s likely they’ll already be gone if problems with your roof start to show up. We recommend looking for a reputable roofing company with good reviews, and be wary of out-of-town door knockers.
Our Residential Roofing Process
Here is our roof replacement process.
1. Initial Roof Inspection
We’ll thoroughly inspect your roof before we do any work. This includes checking the condition of the exterior, and the roof decking from your attic. Roofs with heavy sagging and other major issues will need to be replaced. However, sometimes a roof leak (especially if caught early) can be fixed with a simple repair. This initial inspection is to determine what work needs to be done.
2. Pick Roof Materials
Are you looking for a shingle roof, premium shingles, metal, or cedar shake? If you aren’t sure what you want yet, we can help walk you through the options and look at pros and cons. Some types of roofs are more expensive, but offer unique styles. However, if you want standard architectural shingles and want to go for a budget option, we can set you up with a beautiful shingle roof. We’ll have a discussion and make a recommendation based on your needs and wants.
3. Remove Old Roof Materials
On installation day, we will begin by tearing off the old roofing materials. This includes the old shingles, flashing, underlayment, etc. If your roof decking is seriously sagging or rotting, that will need to be replaced as well. Otherwise, we can simply install the new roofing materials on the decking that’s already there.
4. Install New Roof
After all the old materials are gone, we will install the new roof. We will start with the underlayment, then install the shingles and flashing.
5. Clean Up Site
When the roof installation is completed, we’ll clean up our materials and run over your lawn with roller magnets to pick up any stray nails that may have fallen. Our mission is to leave your home the way we found it - except with a new roof!
Getting the Most Out of Your New Roof
At Allied Restoration Services, we take pride in quality workmanship. This allows us to help your roof last as long as possible In fact, on select roofs, we offer up to 50 year workmanship warranties.
Here are two very important things we do to help your roof last as long as possible:
1. High Quality Materials
One example of where quality makes a big difference is in the underlayment. Rather than using the old felt tar underlayment, we use a new synthetic kind that performs significantly better.
2. Quality Installation by Certified Contractors
In addition to quality materials, how the materials are installed makes a big difference in the quality of your roof. For example, if flashing is not installed with a tight seal, water can seep in. That’s why attention to detail is so important. At Allied, we use certified contractors to perform our Tinley Park roof installations!
Roof Replacement Cost
The typical cost for a roof replacement falls somewhere between $10,000 and $20,000. Here are 6 different factors that can affect roof cost:
1. Roof Size
The larger your roof is, the more the raw roofing material will cost. This includes decking, underlayment, flashing, shingles, vents, etc.
2. Roof Pitch
Roof pitch is the steepness of your roof, and it's typically measured by calculating how much the elevation increases by how close you are to the peak. For example, a roof with a 12/12 pitch (12 inches of incline for every 12 inches toward the center) would be a perfect 45 degree angle. Roofs that aren't as steep, with a 4/12 pitch for example, are much easier to complete than steep roofs. This is because they can be walked without extra safety equipment. But steep roofs (8/12 pitch and above) are much more difficult and require more safety precautions. This makes the more expensive jobs to complete.
3. Roof Complexity (Number of Facets)
A roof facet is a single "face" of the roof. For example, a perfectly flat roof would have one facet. A simple gable roof with two slopes that join at a peak has two facets. Most homes normally have somewhere between two and six facets. The more facets your roof has, the more complex the job. More flashing needs to be installed, and there is more roofing material waste.
4. Number of Stories
The more stories your home has, the more risky and time-consuming the job will be for roof installers. Roofing a home with two or more stories will cost a lot more than a home with a single story.
The cost to replace a roof can be greatly increased by the type of materials you use. If it's within your budget, designer shingles can add a unique and beautiful look to your home, but they will cost more than architectural shingles. Cedar shake shingles will cost more as well.
6. Roof Decking Condition
Until we take off the old roofing materials, we won't know the condition of your roof decking. The decking sits underneath your roof underlayment and shingles, and is the base layer of your roof. If your decking is rotted, it will need to be replaced, which would result in a higher roof replacement cost. If your decking is in good condition, however, we can install the new roofing materials right over top of it without additional cost.
Most roofs fall within the $10,000 to $20,000 range. If you have a smaller roof one a one story home, with only a few facets, and you use architectural shingles, you'll be on the lower end of that number. However, if you have a more complex roof with more surface area, and a two story home, you'll be looking at paying the higher end of that number. If you use high-end shingles the cost could be much higher.
Please note: none of these numbers are final, and to get an accurate quote of what it will cost replace your roof, we'll need to do an inspection.
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.
