Why should I trust a GAF-certified contractor?

Aside from the peace of mind you get from hiring GAF-certified contractor, there are other benefits you can enjoy when you hire us. For one, you have access to the brand's full line of exceptional roofing products and materials. 

What are those roofing components?

In our video (above) you'll see a nice sample of what we bring out to our consultations. This allows us to show you what products will be used on your roof.

  1. The first component of a GAF roof is ice guard underlayment. This gets laid overtop of the roof deck and acts as a leak barrier. 
  2. The second component is a starter strip shingle that is mandatory - it's part of the components of the new roof.
  3. Then there is a synthetic underlayment which is mandatory by all the building departments in all of our cities. We're registered in approximately 42 municipalities around Cleveland.
  4. Next we lay the shingle. GAF offers a range of shingles that offer superior beauty and durability in a wide selection of colors. The shingle in the demonstration is the GAF Timberline (/increase-home-comfort-levels-with-gafs-timberline-shingles) but they offer High Definition, Natural Shadow, Ultra, and American Harvest.
  5. They have an array of choices in a variety of colors. West Side Roofing's Vice President Chris Spacek is a little old school and instead of going by the color - he likes to go by the weight. In that regard, he highly recommends the Ultra - that's a 300 pounder - that is typically used on churches or a very high-end home. 
  6. Lastly, we add something in called a ridge vent. A ridge vent allows your roof to breath.

How Your Attic Can Impact Your Roof

By West Side Roofing
August 16, 2019 Category: Roofing

How Your Attic Can Impact Your Roof One of the first things we look at when we go to repair or replace any roof is to take a look at the attic. The attic is the foundation of the roof, and if it has any issues, the longevity of your roof is at stake. The Importance of Proper Attic Ventilation Attic ventilation is a crucial component of any roofing job. Without adequate ventilation, your roof is at risk for mold, and no one wants mold in their house. The first step when we meet with the homeowner is to go up in their attic space and determine whether the situation is agreeable or if it needs some work. While in the attic, we also look at the condition of the wood. If the wood itself is in poor condition, we may have to make some repairs there as well. For example, a rotting attic ceiling is not a good foundation for any roof, new or old. It can be hard for some homeowners to hearthat they have mold in their attic, but it is important to know if it is there because it is unhealthy

Leaking Chimney and Other Chimney Issues

Do You Have aLeaking Chimney orAnother Chimney Issue? Is a Leaking Chimney a Roofing Issue? One of the most frequent calls that we get here at West Side Roofing is about chimneys. It is not uncommon that over time a chimney will begin to leak, especially brick chimneys. Because a chimney is part of the roof, people will assume that we are equipped to fix that leak. Though this leakage is usually attributed to a masonry issue, we can still help identify and inform you about why this happens. We speak the masonry language, but we are not equipped to make those repairs. What is Chimney Flashing? However, sometimes there is a chimney issue that we can help you with, and that is with the flashing along the bottom of the chimney where it meets the roof. In the first example in the video, you can see that there were some pretty large cracks in the actual brick of the chimney which we recommended the owner have a mason come out and fix that. But their flashing was also coming apart as
