Residential Roofing – Servicing the North Shore & NW Suburbs of Chicago Since 1980

A roof accounts for as much as 45% of the average home’s exterior, making your choice of roofing materials very important. By selecting the right material for your home’s architecture, ensuring it is installed by experienced roofers and performing routine roof maintenance, you can have a roof that boosts curb appeal and performs well for several decades. Here are the most popular residential roofing choices we offer at C & R Home Improvements, Inc.

Asphalt Shingles
Now accounting for about 75% of residential roofing in the United States, asphalt shingles are measured against a variety of standards that evaluate fire and wind resistance, tear strength and other key performance indicators. Other advantages include the wide array of rich colors available to choose from, a varied selection of textures that mimic more expensive materials such as wood shake and slate, and long life expectancy. Asphalt shingles are the most affordable choice too.

Why Asphalt Shingles?
C & R Home Improvements, Inc. is proud to install asphalt shingles from CertainTeed, the premier manufacturer of asphalt shingles in the United States. CertainTeed produces the industry’s most extensive asphalt shingle line. Pioneering the concept of multi-layered shingles, also known as architectural or designer shingles, the company has been an industry leader in color innovation with complex color blending technology and the introduction of bold designer shingle colors such as variegated reds, blues and greens.

Concrete Tiles
C & R Home Improvements, Inc. installs concrete roof tile, a product that melds old-fashioned tradition and modern innovation into a distinctive covering for residential roofing applications. This hand-crafted, artistic roof tile is a wonderful choice to create a unique roofline for new or replacement roofing projects.

Why Concrete Tiles?
Designed for extreme climates, concrete roof tiles are nearly impervious to the passing of time, severe weather and the hazards of fire. This roof tile system withstands wind-driven rain, absorbs minimal moisture and defies termites, rodents and rot. The tiles also meet or exceed industry requirements for strength, water absorption, permeability, freeze-thaw, wind uplift, combustibility, dimensions and weight. Since concrete roof tiles are designed to perform for decades beyond installation, they are covered by a limited lifetime warranty for enduring beauty and peace of mind.
