Residential Roofing Style

Our Roofing Process

We’ll tear off old layers of roofing, and if we discover any cracking or mold we’ll let you know right away (don’t worry; it’s nothing we can’t fix—but we won’t cut corners that will cost you a fortune later on).  We’ll cover everything with tarps so there are no nails or shingles left in your yard from the tear-off; we treat every customer’s home with respect and care.

We will create a mineral-surfaced Roof Leak Barrier that creates a 100% watertight seal; that will help prevent leaks from wind-driven rain and damaging ice dams that are par for the course in the Wisconsin winter and can cause serious damage and cost an arm and a leg.  You may not know about GAF Felt Paper or Pro-Start Starter Strips, but they add critical protection and prevent shingles from blowing off during strong windstorms. We will gladly explain their value in detail—and you’ll be glad we used them!


The Best Materials

Ridge Top Exteriors is proud to use the finest GAF Shingles: They are the best-selling shingles in North America, not only because they’re durable and a great value, but will give your home the highest level of protection.  They come in a wide array of styles and colors—so you’ll find the kind that’s just right for you!  When your new roof is in place, we’ll use thick Ridge Cap shingles over the high-stress peak area of your roof to ensure the most reliable protection!

Roof ventilation is something homeowners don’t always think of—but it’s one of the most important parts of the process: Without proper ventilation, ice dams that damage roofs and gutters occur in the winter, and hot air can’t escape in the summer causing your energy bills to, well, go through the roof!  We’ve served homeowners all over Madison for many years now, and we’re experts in making sure your roof has the right ventilation to prolong its life and save you money!


Nothing We Can’t Handle

When it comes to roof valley and chimney flashing, we’ve got you covered: Water-tight seals will make sure you won’t have to deal with future leaks that are hard to repair and very costly. We pay close attention to detail in our installation process and use only the best materials

And remember, there’s nothing we can’t handle because there’s nothing we haven’t dealt with before—including some of the most complex roofing projects in Madison and around Southern Wisconsin, from church spires and apartment complexes to private homes of all styles and sizes: Whether your home has skylights or unusual roof angles, more than one chimney or other unique elements, Ridge Top Exteriors will be proud to be your local roofing contractor of choice. Our many warranties will give you added peace of mind: Call us today for an estimate—it is absolutely FREE!
