What does roofing cost in Oak Brook IL?
Note: the final costs of roofing services depends on a number of factors, so these figures are just meant to serve as a guideline.
The cost for general repairs and replacements depends on several factors including, most importantly, whether you need an inspection, repair, or full replacement. Below are a few scenarios and their respective costs.
In this case, your roofing inspector will look at cracks, leaks, pools of water or broken/undone shingles. Many contractors will look over your roof for free. The average cost of inspections in Illinois is $200, which is consistent with the national average, which is $217. Most homeowners indicate that they have never paid more than $700 for an inspection.
Before our contractors start repair work on your roof, they will give you a detailed verbal report about what they think is wrong and how it can be handled. Then they’ll detail the repair process. Expect to spend anything between $250 and $500 for minimal repairs, and up to $1,000 for more substantial repairs. In some cases, repairs can run up to $4,000 or more, which is why it’s best to have a comprehensive discussion with your roofer about all of your options.
The cost of replacing a roof varies depending on the size, location, the materials used and even the pitch of the structure. There are market ranges for different roofing jobs, but the figures provided are not cut and dry. The average cost of replacement per square foot is around $4. Assuming the size of an average roof is 1800 square foot, you can expect most homes to cost just over $7,000 to repair. Experts estimate that homeowners in Illinois generally spend between $5,000 and $10,000 on roof replacement (the good news is your replacement might be covered by insurance – more below).
Should you inspect, repair, or replace your Oak Brook IL roof?
You should definitely inspect your roof to avoid nasty surprises and costly repairs. The National Roofing Contractors Association strongly recommends that homeowners have their roofs inspected not less than two times a year. This needs to be done in the fall & spring. At these times of the year, the weather is quite friendly and problems are easy to notice. You could start by giving your roof a good look. Always pay attention for places that look like they are losing their lean in relation to the angle of your roof’s slope. Take a look at the condition of your shingles and make sure there are no overt signs of water damage. Once you are done, call in a professional and have them make an extensive analysis of existing problems.
Similarly, repairing your roof is a good step because it allows you to fix problems before they spiral out of control and cost you more than they would have had you nipped the problem when they started. Replacements should only be done when your roofer in Oakbrook IL feels that damage is extensive and beyond repair. It is also done when the roofer feels that your current roof has outlived its life expectancy.

Does insurance cover general repairs or replacements?
Note: Your insurance policy may differ so please keep that in mind. It’s best to contact your insurance company directly to find out if your repair or replacement is covered.
Your homeowner’s insurance should cover your roof repairs in cases where damage occurs as a result of actions beyond your control. These include man-made causes such as vandalism and fire. Or when your carrier can definitively establish that the cause of damage was an act of God such as flooding, hurricanes, tornadoes or wind. You should always have a good understanding of what your Oak Brook IL roofing policy offers and what it precludes.
