When installed or maintained properly by trained professionals, a roof can be a work of art. Roofing is a craft best handled by experienced specialists. Even the highest-quality materials can result in a low-quality roof if in the wrong hands. The experts at Ridgeworth Roofing approach each roofing job individually, realizing that there is no cookie-cutter solution to every problem. We consider a broad range of factors with each project: materials, designs, customs, techniques , and weather. We have the necessary skill and experience to provide you with an expertly installed, watertight roof the first time. We stand by our work because we know we did everything possible to get it right.

Knowing the condition of your roof now can help you avoid emergencies and save money down the road. Roof inspections help you understand what’s happening with your roof and uncover any potential problems, allowing for necessary repair. An inspection report provides information about the current condition of a roof and can be especially helpful in industrial real estate situations. Rodney Petrick began Ridgeworth Inspection Services in 2006 in response to increased demand by property management firms and existing customers. We are now one of the most widely referred roofing inspectors in the Chicagoland area, and for good reason. Our honest, expert service speaks for itself.
Rather than wait until you notice a problem to give your roof the attention it needs, protect your roofing investment with preventative maintenance. Ridgeworth Roofing offers preventative maintenance programs that can decrease the probability of roof problems, uncover any potential problems, reduce the long-term effects if problems arise, and restore an older roof to increase longevity. A preventative maintenance plan allows Ridgeworth Roofing’s experts to perform regular roof inspections, maintenance, repairs, and restoration, protecting your roof and saving you money.
An average semi-annual preventative maintenance approach costs 1-3% of the cost of a roof replacement and can extend the life of your existing roof. A total roof replacement can cost between $8.00 and $12.00 per square foot of roof. Your roof is a significant investment. Protect it.
BUILDING WITH CONFIDENCE
Just as we provide you with the best the roofing industry has to offer, we’re committed to helping you get the most out of every dollar you invest. We work to get the job right the first time to help you avoid the frustration and cost of repairs later.
Roofing technology changes, so we do, too. We keep current on advances in the industry of roof systems and the installation of new materials and techniques to provide you with the most up-to-date and effective services available today. We are experts in low-slope built-up (BUR) asphalt, coal tar pitch, modified bitumen, single-ply membranes (EPDM, TPO, PVC, CPA), coatings, and reflective roofing.
The finest craftsmanship demands the finest materials. That’s why Ridgeworth Roofing uses only the best materials available. We’ve built longstanding relationships with select manufacturers and suppliers to offer you the best materials, warranty options, and value.
