What Makes West Side Roofing Different?

Before we jump in, we want to talk to you a little bit about West Side roofing. Chris is one of the original sons, his father had the business back in the 50's and he basically grew up in roofing. Everybody in his family is in the roofing business – uncles, cousins, and brothers. “My father was a 55-year veteran of roofing and we are fortunate enough to be continuing the company today. We do have some younger family members that are coming up through and they have the same pride in the tradition of roofing.” Established in 1931, West Side Roofing has a passionate team that's here to solve your roofing needs.  

Roof Shingles for this Westlake, OH Home

This house doesn't look like it really has the “traditional” shingles. This house is a higher-end home located in the Westlake area, west of Cleveland. This is a composite tile made to look like the old Ludowici tile, which is made in Southern Ohio, and those tiles are used all around the world. We actually manufactured this roof to look like that. It's a durable product that carries a 50-year warranty.

The Key Parts of This Higher-End Roof.

The underlayment is the key part of this roof, that protects against water and aids against severe weather. We also have a high temperature ice guard that was used. All the flashings are .032, which is commercial grade, all new gutters are also .032 – everything's higher-end to match the length of a 50 year roof.  

What projects require Ice Guards and these types of roofing materials?

A quality ice guard in this climates is a pretty big benefit for your roof, especially in Cleveland, Ohio. You have your basic ice guard, then a mid range, and finally a high end which means it's built for the high or extreme temperatures. The highest end products we use are from CertainTeed, GAF, and Grace. While this home used a composite shingle, we would use these products with a dimensional as well. Chris would definitely use a high-end material on slate, tile, composite roofing, EchoStar, and any of these manufactured products. Your architectural shingles, which are being used day in and day out, we determine the materials depending on the situation. If you've had ice back up before then I tend to use a higher grade.  

How Does this Affect My Cost?

This is more of an investment than standard shingles. You are probably looking at about 3-4x the cost, depending on the pitch and how many dormers, chimneys, and things like that that come into play. On a house like this, cosmetic appeal curb appeal was very important to the customer.  

It's More Than a Visual Appeal

The benefit is not only in cosmetic appeal. This roof used high-end materials and the customer should get a true 50 years out of that roof. Additionally, that curb appeal is great for resale value and you stand out in the neighborhood to reflect that.   Want to know more? Interested in an exquisite roof? West Side Roofing can help you.

Residential roof tear-off and cleanup A roof tear off is one of the biggest residential service we offer home and condo owners. If we find that your roof only has one layer of shingle down, were going to recommend an entire tear-off. A complete tear-off can get messy. When it comes time to remove your roof, there is typically a ton of nails, a bunch of debris from the shingles - its the biggest part of the job. To keep your yard clean, we put protective grounds down. We use tarps, plywood, well lean sheeting board on the house to cover over top of the bushes - we really just take the extra precautionary steps so that nothing gets damaged during the tear-off process. One thing that has really revolutionized the tear-off process is the equipter. We have invested in numerous equipters to keep our job sites clean. What is an equipter? An equipter is a mobile trash/dumpster unit. This allows us to actually drive a dumpster around the property and move around to where we are removing your

commercial steep slope roof maintenance What Do I Need to Know About Steep Slope Roofing? We typically see steep slope roofs on commercial buildings like large scale condominium complexes, schools, or even hospitals. A lot of these establishments will have shingles or steep slope materials. For the most part, steep slope roofs do not require as much maintenance as a single ply or flat roof commercial roofing system, but its still important to take preventative measures. We recommend checking the sealant around flashings and plumbing stacks and making sure the gutters are cleared out. In our experience, weve found that unit owners call us when theyve identified a problem instead of calling us beforehand to do routine checks. Once a problem is identified, were able to go out to really diagnose to find where the defect is. Our team of experts suggest having someone walk your steep slope commercial roof and make sure there is not a problem once or twice a year. By having commercial steep
