I want to thank Chad and all of Shake Guys for such excellent service. From a no nonsense, no hassle quotation process, and consistent follow up, to work occurring exactly as scheduled by three excellent work crews for roof, gutters, and dormers. All work was done with excellent workmanship and attention to detail. By far the best performance by a contractor that I have experienced in years.

- Dean L. of Deer Park, IL

From the moment I saw the mailer on a fiend's desk I could tell that Shake Guys cares about explaining things and about professionalism! A quick trip to their beautiful website solidified it. A visit from their sales rep put me over the moon as I had found someone I could trust to restore my over-the-hill shake roof. Everything was amazingly easy from there!

I promise you're going to enjoy working with us!

Shake Guys was developed to serve the niche cedar roofing market with more effective tools/technology, higher customer service standards, accountability, finer quality cedar, copper-work mastery, trained inspectors, and insurance claim savvy the likes of which has never been seen in Illinois. I'm proud to say that we've delivered on all fronts and have repeatedly won the favor of our homeowners.
