What does roofing cost in Tinley Park 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.
Rates vary depending on the scope of your project as
well as the types of materials you choose. Costs also vary from one contractor to another, but the good news is not much. Averages depend on the job, whether inspections, repairs or replacements. Our pricing is generally affordable to clients across the board.
Many roofers offer free inspections if deterioration & damages are known ahead of time. In other cases, where you have seen nothing wrong with your roof but want it examined anyway (it’s recommended to do so yearly), you can expect to pay up to $1,000.
Depending on the outcome of the inspection process, you might need to carry out repairs. In general, minor repairs tend to cost anywhere from $250 to $400. If you are looking to do moderate repairs, then expect to spend up to the $400-$1,000 range. There are cases in which people spend up to $4,000 for major repairs. However, if the costs go beyond that, a good idea would be to go for a complete replacement. Statistics indicate that most homeowners will spend between $300 and $1,100 on roof repairs, with the average being $650.

We calculate costs per square foot, and replacing your roof will generally run between $5,000 and $10,000.

Should you inspect, repair, or replace your Tinley Park roof?
It’s ultimately up to you as the homeowner to decide how often you’d like to have your roof inspected, however, there are some guidelines we recommend following:
The durability of your roof depends on the materials and how well it’s maintained. Regular inspections are always a good idea. Inspecting your roof annually reduces the chance of undiagnosed problems developing into costly repairs later. Whether you are looking at a few undone shingles or a few water stains, moving fast can save in the long term.
The decision on whether to repair or replace your roof entirely comes down to a few things. At Main Street GC Inc. we look at the extent of the damage and advise the client appropriately. If they feel that a few patches here and there will get the job done, then that’s what they suggest. If they feel that the damage is too extensive for a simple fix, then they will provide an estimate of what the full replacement will cost. If you are patching things up or replacing shingles, then repair is not a bad option. If your roof is aging, has been hit by a recent storm, or has extensive water damage, then replacement is likely your best option.
“Main Street General Contractors was an absolute delight to work with. They came to the house to replace the roof and siding. Showed up on time and kept the yard and house neat. The guys were all very willing to discuss any questions that I might have had and were all very courteous. The work was completed on time and they did an outstanding job. We are extremely happy with the workmanship. I will recommend Main Street to everyone I can.” – Christopher B. (Chicago Area homeowner)
Are general repairs or replacements covered by insurance?
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.
Our roofing contractors are particularly knowledgeable about the world of homeowners insurance because we have years of experience. There are all-peril policies which cover damage caused by leaking or falling roofs but will not cover the cost of roof repairs itself. And for replacements, notwithstanding how old your roof is, your insurance carrier will only cover the resulting costs if your roof is damaged in an act of nature (think storms, tornadoes, hurricanes or snow). The extent to which your roof is covered depends on the particular contract with your company, with some policies offering full coverage while others cover only partially.
