Roofing Services in Westmont

We’re proud to offer the full spectrum of our roofing services to Westmont residents. Whether you need roof repair services, a roof replacement, or new gutters or skylights, our team at Baltic Roofing is here to help.

Residential Roofing

If your roof is coming up on 15-20 years old, or it’s showing visible signs of wear and tear — like curling, broken, or cracked shingles — it might be time for a roof replacement. Our roofing specialists will happily inspect your home, ensure all elements of your roof system are working together well to defend against the elements, remove the old roof, install a new roof that meets the strictest quality standards, and clean up the site behind us. Once we’re done, the only sign we were ever there will be your new, functional and beautiful roof — an investment in your family’s safety and comfort that will last for decades to come.

Roof Repairs

There are plenty of events that can damage part of your roof but not totally destroy it. Our team can do a visual and deep diagnostic inspection to ensure a roof repair will suffice, then complete that repair to the highest standards. We even include a limited warranty on your repair work, because we stand behind our work.

Gutter Installation

Gutters are often overlooked, but the job they do funneling water away from your home’s foundation is crucial to protecting the integrity of your home (and avoiding more expensive repairs down the road). Whether you need a fully new water management system, or a simple repair, we’ve got you covered.

Skylight Replacement

Skylights are a wonderful addition to any home, bringing natural light and additional ventilation to areas that may otherwise be closed off or dark. Today’s skylight technology is better than ever, providing greater energy efficiency while bringing even more light and fresh air into your home. If your skylights are leaking or just outdated, we have a number of high-quality replacement options available.

Hail / Wind Damage Claim Assistance

If extreme weather has damaged your roof, your insurance company may cover some or all of the cost to repair or replace it. We encourage you to reach out to us before calling your insurance company — our storm damage experts can do a full inspection and meet with the insurance adjusters to provide step-by-step guidance and support. All this will keep your insurance company accountable, so you don’t feel alone throughout your claim process.

Life in Westmont

Just 18 miles west of the Chicago loop, the village of Westmont is a great place to live and raise a family. Westmont residents can enjoy both the quiet of a nice suburb and access to work opportunities in Chicago just a short commute away.

Westmont History

After the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad was completed in 1864, the once rural community of Westmont, Illinois was totally transformed. Farmers could now make a living selling produce and milk to citizens of Chicago. Other residents were able to commute to the big city for work.

The village also played a key role in rebuilding the city of Chicago after the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. William Gregg established Excelsior Brick Company in Westmont in 1872, taking advantage of the railroad to deliver bricks to Chicago contractors looking to rebuild the ruined structures of the city. The brick factory was known to make 70,000 bricks each day while employing only 120 laborers.

The village was officially incorporated in November 1921, and today is home to about 24,000 people.

School and Home Life in Westmont

Westmont is served by six public school districts. with several elementary, middle, and high schools in each district. Most high school students attend Westmont High School, which has been ranked in the top 5% of schools in the nation.

Housing stock in Westmont is fairly diverse, and can be broken down into four categories:

  • Category 1: Roughly 38% of homes in Westmont are high-value/high-cost properties. These are low-density, single family homes with premium architecture and high-quality features. Most of the homes in this category are still in great shape due to of quality construction and regular maintenance. Many of these homeowners opt for more luxurious roofing materials such as cedar shake or synthetic slate, along with copper gutters for curb appeal.
  • Category 2: Post-war housing stock makes up about 29% of homes in Westmont. These low-density, single-family homes were built between 1940 and 1959 and are occupied largely by senior citizens. Because the majority of these homes are owned by their residents, the burden of maintenance for this housing category is much higher than those in surrounding areas. These residents may benefit from a roof maintenance program with a membership option to ensure proper care for their roof (as well as protection for the rest of the home).
  • Category 3: About 22% of houses in Westmont were built between 1960 and 1979. This category of housing stock is very similar to category 2, but with a large percentage of renters as occupants. While not as old as the second category, these homes likely already need a full roof replacement. To preserve these homes and prevent them from further declining in value, regular maintenance is necessary.
  • Category 4: There is a small percentage of houses (roughly 11%) that were built between 1980 and 1999. These are also low-density, single-family homes. While these homes may still be in good shape, some repairs may be required (depending on the actual condition of the property). The best way for homeowners to understand ongoing roof maintenance needs is to order a roof inspection or join a roof maintenance program.

1

ROOFING IS OUR BREAD AND BUTTER

Some contractors try to be everything to everyone. At Baltic Roofing, we eat, breathe, and sleep roofing. Still, every day we continue to improve our services and offerings to deliver you the highest quality roofing system. Our work is backed by proven installation processes, manufacturer support, and years of experience.

2

IN BUSINESS SINCE 2004

Statistics show that almost half of new contractors go out of business in their first 2 years and even more in the next 5 years. Baltic Roofing is proud to have been our customers since 2004, and we’re not planning to stop.

3

WE PROUDLY STAND BEHIND OUR WORK

No work is good if no one stands behind it. All our work is guaranteed in writing. In rare cases where the customer has an issue with our work, we jump on resolving the issue right away. To us, this is not just good customer service but an opportunity to prove ourselves again.

6

100% LICENSED AND INSURED

Roofing is a hands-on job, and accidents do happen. Unlike cheap contractors who avoid paying for insurance, our team at Baltic Roofing is fully licensed and insured.
