[un-con-di-tion-al (adj) not limited by conditions]



When Carlson Exteriors decided to start offering residential roof replacements, we knew that we wanted to offer a different kind of roof. An Unconditional Roof.

So, what does an “Unconditional Roof” mean?

We have partnered with CertainTeed to give you a worry-free roof. CertainTeed guarantees the cost of a roof we replace for up to 50 years – 100% NO PRORATING! This warranty will cover the cost of materials and labor to tear off your roof and replace it over the next 50 years. No fine print. No loop holes. When we are done we will even send you a transferrable certificate as proof. We always stand behind our labor and now we have a manufacturer that stands behind their product.

Besides completely tearing off and replacing the roof on your home, we do minor repairs. We fix any roof leaks, replace missing shingles with best matched shingle, clay tile roof repairs, and any other miscellaneous roof repair.  We replace and repair flat roofs, low slope roofs, and rubber roofs. Visit the page about flat roofs and low slope roofs.

Carlson Exteriors gives free Roof-Life Expectancy Evaluations. If you think your roof might be on it’s last leg and might be time to replace it, give us a call and we will come out and let you know how many years we think your roof has left. In the meantime, check out this article on Early Signs of Roof Failure.

Carlson Exteriors was 16th in the Nation and 2nd in the State of Illinois of top roofers on CertainTeed’s list!

After Chris left my house from reviewing the needed repairs he left me with a very comfortable feeling that I would be taken care of. Professionalism of your staff and holding to your promise to perform work as scheduled. Great friendly quality professional service. Prompt replies to my questions and in scheduling appointments. What more can I say?

The estimate seemed a bit pricey for the work that needed to be done but I wanted it done before winter and you were responsive and professional so I did not get another quote and moved forward. No surprises. This was easy and didn’t take a lot of effort on my part so that is appreciated.
