Residential Recovers

Residential Recovers

Greiner Buildings can help you with updating your residential house roof. One popular trend we are seeing in both rural and urban neighborhoods is the use of metal roofing on homes.  Many people find that a metal roof is more visually appealing than traditional asphalt shingles, while others consider the benefits of this easy-to-install, maintenance free material to outweigh shingles.  Metal roofs can be installed on new construction homes over open purlins systems or solid sub-straights.  On recovers, owners can elect to install metal roof over the existing shingles if they choose to not remove and replace the shingles.  In that application, metal can be installed directly over the shingles to save money (not recommended) or we can use a couple of different methods to strip out the roof and space the new roofing over the existing. For these and all your residential building construction Illinois and residential building construction Iowa needs call Greiner Buildings, we are your building experts!
