Traditional Shingles

We’ve chosen to partner with Owens Corning on all traditional shingling applications.  From basic 25 year shingles to products that last a lifetime, we can meet all of your roofing needs.  The depth of value with Owens-Corning far exceeds that of any other manufacturer.

Adding to the excellent range of products, we offer the Greenworks Guarantee.  Backed by Owens Corning, look at all the advantages of your Greenworks Guarantee… We’ll use the Duration Premium® to illustrate…

  • In addition to a lifetime warranty on the shingle, our guarantee offers you 100% Coverage for 50 Years. What that means for you - Materials and labor are fully covered for the entire 50 years. Not one penny will come out of your pocket for warranty repairs.

  • This warranty is fully transferable, with no reduced coverage. It’s no secret that the Real Estate Market is tough right now and it’s very competitive to sell your home these days. Needless to say, the Greenworks Guarantee is highly desirable to future home buyers!

  • The peace of mind that your roof is covered by a billion dollar, publicly traded company that is sure to be around 100 years from now to honor these obligations

  • Additionally, after your 50 years is up the warranty does prorate, but labor is still included in your warranty, which is virtually unheard of from any other shingle manufacturer

  • All individual components (i.e. roof vents, underlayment, iceguard) are also covered. The Greenworks Guarantee isn’t just a “shingle warranty”, It’s a “Roofing System” Warranty!

  • Also provided is up to 10 more years of wind coverage!

Standing Seam Roofing

Today more than ever, choosing metal roofing is one of the best investment decisions you can make for your home or light commercial roof installation. A metal roof offers you durability, longevity, and energy efficiency. A metal roof - the last roof you may ever need to buy!

kenlocKENLOC ™ ARCHITECTURAL METAL SYSTEMS

Attractive and affordable, KENLOC metal roofing features a concealed fastening system allowing versatility in design. This standing seam product is available in an array of materials, gauge options and color selections. With energy efficiency in mind, our panels are offered with heat-deflecting coatings and finishes to reduce energy consumption and costs. The versatility of KENLOC makes it perfect for a rural home or a contemporary urban installation

Low Slope Products

When it comes to low slope or no slope roofing, greenworks has you covered! We use the latest technologies available in roofing today. We offer Mulehide® self adhering modified bitumen for your small low pitch needs, or maybe you require the latest in synthetic membrane technology (we recommend PVC). To satisfy the "green bug", we can supply you with a living roof, coupled with the latest synthetic membranes and some landscaping, we can create a flat roof that is not only astectically pleasing to look at, but by far the most energy efficient roof available!

Energy Star Roof Coating

Elastomeric Roof Coating have been around for some time now, but have recently evolvled into one of the most useful tools to maintain the life of membrane roofing, modified bitumen, and standing seam. Due to advances in UV inhibitors, this product can have a life span as long as 10 years and can be applied at a fraction of the cost of replacing any of the above mentioned roofing materials. On top of that this product can be reapplied again and again to extend the life of your roof indefinetly.

In addition to the benefits listed above, the breakthrough technology with this product has been the ability to create a highly reflective mixture that reflects 90% of the sun's rays, reducing the surface temperature of the roof by 100 degrees or more. By this reduction in temperature, it lengthens the lifespan of the original roofing substrate as well as reduces your cooling costs by up to 50%. Hence the Energy Star Rating!

Living (Green) Roofs

Chicago City HallAs you probably noticed, Living Roofs are mentioned in the above Low Slope Product summary, but as one of the most ecologically responsible and most enviromentally beneficial green products we sell, we thought this product deserved it's own summary section. We could go on for days about what makes a green roof so green, but if your as busy as most people, you probably wouldn't have time to read it. So instead of taking up all your time we've highlighted some of the main benefits below...

  • Stormwater Management: Living roofs reduce impermeable surface area. They can retain 65-100% of rainwater thus providing local flood prevention and offset peak flow events by releasing water at a slower rate.

  • Urban Climate Mitigation (reductions in urban heat island effect): Living roofs counter the urban heat island effect by cooling roof surfaces through plant evapotranspiration, shading, and insulation.

  • Reductions in Energy Costs: Living roofs decrease energy costs by reducing thermal loading in summer (roof structure is cooler in summer).

  • Provides Wildlife Habitat: Living roofs contributes to local biodiversity by providing wildlife habitat for insects and birds.

  • Urban Greenspace: Living roofs increases living and green space in congested urban environments. This may be enjoyed visually through a view or physically through a roof garden.

  • Increased Membrane Life: Living roofs increase longevity of roof membranes by blocking UV rays and preventing extreme surface temperature fluctuations which cause membrane degradation. This leads to lower roof costs over time.

  • Improves Air Quality: Living roofs purify the air by absorbing pollutants such as particulate matter from automobiles and factories, pollen, and dust.

  • Adds Aesthetic Value and Increased Quality of Life: Living roofs have a positive impact on people living and working around them. By providing views of nature, living roofs contribute to a person's mental and physical health.

  • Provides Numerous LEED Credits:

    -Stormwater Management Rate Quantity, and Treatment
    -Design to Reduce Heat Islands
    -Water-Efficient Landscaping
    -Optimizing Energy Performance
    -Recycled Content (green roof system components)
    -Local/Regional Materials (green roof components and plants)
