These aren’t the old flat, tinned roofs of the past. Today’s metal roofs are attractive, energy-efficient and light-weight. They may be made from steel, aluminum, copper, or zinc alloy. They come in shingles or sheets that feature standing seams, which offer an added layer of protection against moisture.

cedar-shingles-arlington-heights-ilCedar Shingles

Cedar shingles and shakes provide a classic wood look to the roof. Cedar is naturally mold, mildew, and insect-resistant, but has a low fire tolerance unless it is treated. They can be left to weather naturally or be painted. Cedar requires more maintenance than any other type of roofing material but it makes up for it in looks.

slate-roofing-arlington-heights-ilSlate Roofing

One of the oldest roofing materials known to man, slate remains popular for good reason. It is extremely durable and wind and fire-resistant. It’s a 100% natural material, but very heavy and usually requires roof reinforcement. Best for steep-sloped roofs.

Heavy, but long-lasting and low maintenance, tiles may be made from clay or concrete. They provide excellent fire resistance and can be made to resemble traditional clay tiles, wood shakes, or slate.

“We had numerous quotes on replacing our roof and gutters, many by companies who appeared to be fly by night or “storm chasers”. When Martin from Erdmann Exterior Designs came to give us an estimate, he spent time going over all the job, by climbing on the roof and explaining all the areas of concern that were present…I would highly recommend Erdmann Exteriors for any home needing work done.”
Dr R. , Rolling Meadows, IL
“After years, probably a lifetime of rehabbing and remodeling, I appreciate Erdmann’s quality of service and their design expertise, their willingness to please and to conserve costs where possible.”
