Do You Need a New Roof?
As Chicago's best roofing contractor, Innovative has seen pretty much everything. If any of the following symptoms are occurring on your roof, it may be time for a roof replacement!
Rotting Roof Decking
A bad roof really makes your home look old and unkempt. Curling and buckling shingles, missing pieces and blistered areas with out granules, algae or fungus growth, and ceiling spot on your interior drywall or roof decking gives the impression that a homeowner doesn't care about his/her home.
Not only does an old roof look bad, it can be causing damage that can cost you tens of thousands of dollars down the road. Sure replacing a roof isn't a cheap proposition but when you factor in the cost of not replacing it, it starts to look like a bargain. Some home improvement projects are a want, a new roof is definitely a need.
Water leaks due to damaged flashing, missing shingles, or old, worn out roofing material can get into your home causing more damage than you may think. Water has a tendency to travel from a high point to a low point, so a roof leak in one area may result in damage in a completely different part of your home. Water that gets into your home can cause wood rotting, drywall and plaster deterioration, and flooding. Water damage left unrepaired or undiscovered can lead to structural weakness and mold! Repairs to the actual structural integrity of a structure and/or mold remediation can cost tens of thousands of dollars, not to mention lead to dangerous situations and health problems.
Why Having a Functional Roof is So Important
With out a solid covering your home is at the mercy of mother nature. In particular rain water and moisture. Moisture is the worst enemy of the interior of your house. Moisture lead to wood rot, to deterioration of framing, insulation, drywall, metal ducts, and internal parts that are not intended to get wet.
Worst case scenario, moisture can lead to a number of species of MOLD. And mold for anyone who doesn't know is called the silent killer. It's spores make people and animals ill and can even, in severe cases, lead to death.
The best prevention for mold is controlling water and moisture. And the best way to control the water is to have a functioning roof protecting your home.

Which Type of Roof is Right for Your Home?
An Asphalt shingled roof is the most popular choice for residential roofing in North America because asphalt provides quality, durability, versatility and economy. Over 12 1/2 billion square feet of asphalt shingle products are made each year. That's enough material to roof more than 5 million houses annually. In fact, 4 out of 5 homes have asphalt shingles.
Asphalt shingle roofs offer a large array of colors, styles, and textures. With the wide range of styles available, asphalt shingles can match almost any home design and achieve virtually any desired effect. Asphalt shingles are a petroleum product so their price can fluctuate depending on the price of oil. Regardless, asphalt shingles are the most economical choice for roofing material.
Ashalt shingles have the following characterists:
Performance- Asphalt shingles perform well in extreme high and low temperatures and in areas where wind, water, and ice are prevalent like Chicago.
Affordability- Aspalt shingles are manufactured in high-volume and the cost of installation is relatively low, these two factors provide consumers with an overall value that is difficult for competing roofing materials to match. Other material may last longer but none match the price point of ashalt at this time.
Low Maintenance- Asphalt shingles require little or no regular maintenance and are easy to repair if damaged.
Ease of Application- Asphalt shingles are considered to be the easiest of all standard roofing materials to install. In addition, the flexibility and strength of asphalt shingles allows them to be installed on a wide variety of roof designs.
Fire and Wind Resistance- Asphalt shingles are manufactured to resist external fire and meet flammability standards. In addition, many asphalt shingles have a wind resistance label indicating that they have been produced and tested to meet acceptable resistance in high-wind areas.
Standing Seam Metal
One of the most efficient and effective types of metal roofing available. Standing seam metal roofing installs relatively quickly and will last a lifetime on your home. Standing seam metal roofing will also provide your house with a visually appealing appearance.
Standing seam metal roofs are just as durable and long-lasting as other forms of metal roofs. They are available in various shapes and sizes to fit different types of roofs. The many colors and styles also provide consumers with plenty of attractive options. They require little maintenance and will look great for decades. Metal roofing in general is a little more costly than asphalt roofing but well worth it when considering it's longer life. when considering a metal roof, standing seam metal roofing is an excellent choice.

One of the most unique and durable metal roofing products available, stone coated metal roofing has the look of asphalt, tile, or shake roofs with the durability and longevity of metal roofing. Stone coated metal roofing has the following benefits:
Durable in Harsh Chicago Area Weather Conditions
Whether you need commercial or residential applications, a stone coated metal roof is a versatile product designed to meet a variety of building styles. It is great for a wide range of climate conditions like we see in Chicago. It will also withstand wind forces to 120 mph. Since it is made of metal, it is free from termite damage. A metal roof of this type is highly durable, in fact, it may be the last roof you ever need. The strength and durability of a stone coated steel roof is combined with the versatile good looks of a shingle, shake or tile exterior to give you the widest possible selection. Metal roofing has the durability of commercial-grade roofing material, and offers the richness and beauty that will enhance your home’s appearance.
The majority of stone coat metal roofs carry a 50 year limited warranty against 120 mph winds and penetrating hail. The interlocking steel panels provide a weather-tight barrier against the elements. The metal panels are pressure formed zinc-aluminum alloy coated steel with an acrylic bonded stone chip finish. The zinc-aluminum alloy coated steel provides superior corrosion resistance. The stone chip finish resists fading and UV-ray penetration. Its non-porous surface also resists freezing and thawing in cold climates. Stone coat metal roofing panels are non-combustible, and will not crack, break, warp, curl or split.
Many Styles and Colors
There are several styles of stone coated metal roofing inclucing shake, shingle, and tile. It is also available in a wide range of colors to fit any exterior home color schemes. In most cases, the most difficult decision is choosing whichstyle and color is best for your home.
Environmentally Sound Product
The recycled content of the steel in a metal roof is 56%. A metal roof can often be installed over your current roof, greatly reducing tear-off and disposal of old roofing material in landfills.
Save money and add value
Metal roofing can be purchased in light colours that reflect heat to reduce cooling in summer. A metal roof can also increase the resale value of your home and can even lower your home owners insurance rate.
Life of your home longevity
The average roof life of an asphalt roof is 17years. In fact, asphalt may require re-roofing every 15 to 20 years and in some cases sooner. A quality installed stone coated metal roof offers unmatched durability lasting up to 2 to 3 times longer than asphalt. That translates to 40 to 60 years inbetween replacement and in most cases even longer.
