Our Roofing Process

We’ll tear off old layers of roofing, and if we discover any cracking or mold we’ll let you know right away (don’t worry; it’s nothing we can’t fix—but we won’t cut corners that will cost you a fortune later on).  We’ll cover everything with tarps so there are no nails or shingles left in your yard from the tear-off; we treat every customer’s home with respect and care.

We will create a mineral-surfaced Roof Leak Barrier that creates a 100% watertight seal; that will help prevent leaks from wind-driven rain and damaging ice dams that are par for the course in the Illinois winter and can cause serious damage and cost a whole lot.  You may not have heard about GAF Felt Paper or Pro-Start Starter Strips, but they add critical protection and prevent shingles from blowing off during strong windstorms. We will gladly explain their value in detail—and you’ll be glad we used them!

The Best Materials

Ridge Top Exteriors Chicago is proud to use the finest GAF Shingles: They are the best-selling shingles in North America, not only because they’re durable and a great value, but will give your home the highest level of protection.  They come in a wide array of styles and colors—so you’ll find the kind that’s just right for you!  When your new roof is in place, we’ll use thick Ridge Cap shingles over the high-stress peak area of your roof to ensure the most reliable protection!

Roof ventilation is something homeowners don’t always think of—but it’s one of the most important parts of the process: Without proper ventilation, ice dams that damage roofs and gutters occur in the winter, and hot air can’t escape in the summer causing your energy bills to, well, go through the roof!  We’ve served homeowners all over Grayslake for many years now, and we’re experts in making sure your roof has the right ventilation to prolong its life and save you money!

Ridgetop came out with a magnet and cleaned up the remaining debris.I contacted Ridgetop Exteriors to give me an estimate on repairing a few shingles, replacing gutters, and replacing a window and door at our house. They came out very quickly and provided a quote quickly as well. The window and door quote seemed high, but the shingle repair and gutter replacement seemed fair, so we agreed to do those two things. When they showed up to have me sign the quote, the estimate for the shingle repair had increased from $150 to $300. I should have balked there, but it honestly still seemed like a fair price, and they had availability to come out and replace my gutters the very next week, in the middle of winter, even though I was expecting this to be a spring-time job and was just trying to secure my place in line. Overall, the gutter job looked good, though they took another couple of weeks to get out and do the roofing. In that couple of weeks, we began to notice a lot of debris around the house. I figured they probably had a tough time controlling that due to the snow on the ground and decided it wasn't that big of a deal. When they showed up to do the shingles, I could tell the people who were there had made some effort to clean up a bit of the debris, so I was a bit pacified. Well, now that the snow has melted, we have continued to find more and more debris scattered about. We went out on the deck to enjoy the nice weather recently and discovered it was littered with nails(around 20 just on our deck), and there was a screw that was somehow screwed partially into our deck, through an outdoor rug, sticking up about an inch and a half. We noticed this when a friend tripped on it. At first I thought maybe they dropped a nail gun or something, but I can't imagine how you accidentally put a screw into a deck like that, unless they were using it to secure their ladders or something. While we are able to clean up the debris on the deck, I have a lot of concerns about remaining debris around the rest of our house, as we have 2 dogs and a toddler that could be injured by it. I was very appreciative if not shocked to find out they could come out so soon and do our gutters, but I believe that if the job cannot be done properly due to the weather, then they should not be out doing the work. I was really going to let this go and not leave a review, but then they emailed me not once, but twice, begging for a review, so I figured I would go ahead and leave it. There was also a section of gutter that we had re-routed to a different location, and the nails and a bit of the metal that was holding the gutter to the house are still there, which is kind of an eye-sore and is another thing I will have to take care of this spring that should have been done by the crew that came.

Our vinyl siding on our house seemed to be allowing water through and we contacted Ridge Top Exteriors to assess the problem. Eric came out as scheduled and was extremely nice/honest. He figured out that there was a small gap where two pieces of siding met and should have overlapped so he popped off/adjusted the pieces and fixed the problem for us at no charge! Super guy and we are so pleased with the service provided by Ridge Top! Thank you!

4.5 STARS. Roof looks good, there was a small issue with a vent that wasn't replaced , however Jim, project manager, came back out and replaced it himself the next day. The workers were here on the hottest day of year which ended with a huge storm! The reason for rating is that they started an hour late and only had a 3 man crew instead of 6 as originally stated. We have a small straight forward roof and if the 6 would have shown up they could have been done in a few hours rather than having to work into the storm to finish.I will be happy to recommend them for future work.

Working with Brian was excellent from the very first phone call. The inspection, working with the insurance adjuster, the scheduling, the roofing and siding (and by the way, you have never seen roofers work this hard and do this great of a job) the quality of materials and workmanship to the follow up paper work. Yes, I would highly recommend Ridge Top Exteriors for you roofing and siding! If I ever need help work again I will use them!
