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.
