Servicing Northeast Ohio with 87 Years of Experience.

Because of our name, West Side Roofing, many think that we only service the west side of Cleveland, but we serve Cleveland's east side as well. We're located on West 130th in Brook Park, but we pretty much service all of northeast Ohio. That's from Port Clinton to Ashtabula, down through Akron and Canton. We've actually done some larger projects in the northern Columbus area, too. Northeast Ohio is our primary stomping grounds for for roof activity.

Commercial Roofing in Cleveland, OH for Recreational Facilities

This series of photos shows a recreation field for one of the municipalities in the Cleveland area. This is a standing seam roof and the panels are manufactured. It is a 24 gauge steel. They're pre-made panels that are retrofitted to this building. The underlayment on this building is a high-temp Ice Guard because of extreme heat that goes up on a metal roof in the summer. We were able to flash the units, those are box exhaust vents. There is a ridge vent at the peak and a new gutter system is tied in with the building. This completes the fully retrofitted roofing system for this recreation center.

A Durable, Low Maintenance, Commercial Roofing System

Breaking down the roof system, it's basically like a puzzle – you take all the parts and components and they work together with that underlayment. The underlayment is really key for the Northeast Ohio region because of the extreme rain, ice, and snow that we get up here. This is a very good system. Though the kynar finish could be wearing out down the road, but it does carry a 20 year warranty on the finish itself. Then you could re-paint in the 30 to 40 year range.

Straight Sided Roof Structure Saves on Labor Costs

When you have a straight sided structure, like this building, it makes things pretty efficient for the labor to put the metal panels down. So this takes down the cost, although it is still more expensive than basic shingles.

New Cleveland Winery's Roofing System.

New Roof System for Easy Side Winery (Cleveland, OH)

This East Side Winery in Cleveland is beautiful. It has all the panels on the vertical wall as an accent point. This is during construction at the eve of the roof will the gutter will go, we did add in a snow rail system. For a steep slope roof like this, you get some sliding of snow and ice in the winter. To avoid the obvious safety concerns here, there's two rails that would be put up; One towards the three foot above the gutter and then a little bit higher than that.

Beautifully Built Roof That Stands the Test of Time

With that guard rail up, any snow or ice that begins to slide, will be caught. It adds a beautiful look to the building and is super clean. This roof (metal slate) is little bit more expensive than shingles, but you're getting a roof that is long lasting. This roof also carries a 20-year warranty on the finish itself.

Standing Seam Metal Roofs Gain Popularity

Chris Spacek actually just built a garage on his property and used a standing seam metal, to achieve that different look (shown in the Winery above). He loves it. Metal roofs are applicable in the private sector, residential areas, and commercial property. This look and material is gaining popularity. West Side roofing has a full staff that does this metal roofing (out of our 80 or so guys that are working on a daily basis). We have two full crews right now that can do metal. We also do flat roofing.

Residential Roof Tear-Off and Cleanup

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
