You can't predict Central Illinois weather. Lightning strikes, tornadoes, ice storms, heavy snowfall, strong winds and hail storms can cause extensive damage. One strong storm can leave your roof in need of emergency repairs. Blackhawk Roofing will work with your insurance company, and assess the damage to your roof. We'll recommend a long-term solution that makes sense for your home and circumstances.
When a leak threatens the integrity of your home, it can cause serious distress. Our emergency roof repair service provides a 24/7 solution to your crisis. One leak can trigger thousands of dollars in damage to items inside your home, some of which may be difficult, if not impossible, to replace. With Blackhawk Roofing, you can count on a timely assessment and repair, to make sure your roof can protect your home as quickly as possible.
1. Eave Protection provides an extra line of defense against water penetration due to ice dams or wind-driven rain (and the costly damage they can cause). Extra protection is also strongly recommended for sealing around vents, low pitch areas, ridges, hips, rake edges, chimneys, dormers, vent stacks, and skylights.
2. Underlayment is an important layer of protection. Blackhawk Roofing installs 1" ISO Board, 7/16" OSB, or 5/8" plywood sheathing in 4'x8' sheets, depending on the slope of the roof and the requirements of the homeowner. On top of the decking, we install #30 felt rolled roofing material for total deck protection.
3. Shingles can be beautiful and distinctive. Several manufacturers offer premium roofing shingles which mimic the look of natural slate tiles or cedar shakes, without their associated maintenance worries and cost. Premium shingles deliver the ultimate in weather protection for high-value residences.
4. Ridge Cap shingles are required where roof planes meet, and provide additional protection along these high stress areas of the roof. They enhance your home’s aesthetic appeal by accentuating the roof line. Almost every steep-sloped roof will have a ridge at the top of the roof, where different sides of the roof meet.
