Someone Likes You Enough to Recommend Receiving a FREE ROOF EXAM

You were referred to us because of our outstanding service in providing roof repairs stemming from a thorough roof inspection.



Call us today and let us know who sent you. We can also give you a call back within 24 hours.  847.278.2272



Please specify any concerns you have about your cedar roof or just state that you're looking for a "roof audit". A Shake Guys inspector, trained and certified by HAAG in storm damage forensics, will be scheduled to conduct a 17 POINT EXAM along with any other exterior points of concern. We also restore siding, metal sheeting,  gutters, and more.



Your Examiner will provide a presentation of their findings and offer a complimentary comprehensive consultation to review your options. Shake Guys can provide you with a free estimate for any repair work as well as assisting you with an insurance claim should you require help in securing appropriate funds. We're here to remove any worries.

After a hail and wind storm last year there were multiple roofers going door to door making promises and suspicious claims. Amongst them was one who stood out as a clean-cut and studious man who exuded understanding and real sympathy for the hassles I was going through with my obviously damaged roof. We scheduled a formal exam that became the backbone of my insurance claim which Shake Guys fought for.

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

Shake Guys did a great job and I would highly recommend them! Chad helped us through the entire process. The project manager, Antillio, was very professional, diligent and kind. Everyone that worked on the roof was knowledgeable and hard working. We are very pleased with Shake Guys! We would certainly use them again in the future and recommend them without hesitation.
