Alternative Roofing Products

At Shake Guys, we understand that cedar shake isn’t for everyone. It’s not uncommon for us to help homeowners who currently have a cedar shake to find an alternative roofing product, should they feel it’s time to try something new. Whereas asphalt/comp roofing have many fine designer choices, even those that seek to mimic shakes, there is a lack of prestige that accompanies neighborhoods where you find concentrations of cedar roofing tend to have real slate and composite/synthetic slate and shakes mixed in. We are proud to offer solutions to these needs because we understand the significance.

Illinois communities like Lake Forest, Barrington, Inverness, and Long Grove are adopting environmentally friendly alternative roofing products while coming up against the fact that there are few experts in the region dealing with them. Moreover, there are few roofing contractors that know how to switch roofing systems in a way that doesn’t sacrifice protection for visual aesthetics.

Our crews and project managers make safety their main focus; secure/protected grounds during repairs and installs, crew safety, homeowner safety, roof safety for those parts you don’t see, and safety for what may come in the form of product labor and warranties. Shake Guys won’t just deliver, we go above and beyond any other roofing contractor around… our reviews back up this claim (BBB, Facebook, GuideQuality).
