Take Your Pick of Several Roofing Materials

Roofing Materials at Olson Windows, Doors, Siding & RoofingThe materials that you use to cover and protect your roof are important. Not only do they supply your roof with its appearance/curb appeal, but they deeply affect your roof’s overall performance as well. This is why you need to take your choice of roofing material seriously.

Olson Windows, Doors, Siding, and Roofing offers many different types of roofing materials and has installed them on a wide range of houses throughout the Chicagoland area. Provided to us by high-quality manufacturers, all of our roofing materials are equipped to get the job done on your roof.



The most popular of all asphalt shingles, three-tab shingles are simple but effective. Providing a homey aesthetic, they look terrific on houses of all shapes, sizes, and styles.

Available at relatively low costs, and requiring almost nothing in the way of maintenance, three-tab shingles are extremely cost-effective. Combine this with their general toughness and durability, and you have a truly high-quality roofing material. Inquire about three-tab shingles by contacting Olson today!


Also known as architectural shingles, designer shingles are renowned primarily for their appearance. These shingles come in many different styles and can be laid at a variety of different angles and configurations.

Not only are designer shingles durable and low-maintenance, they provide terrific insulation as well. If you are looking to improve the resale value of your home, adding designer shingles would be a wise choice.


Impact-resistant shingles are similar to both three-tab and designer shingles. However, they’re different in the fact that they are stronger. These shingles are thick and heavy, designed to withstand strong wind as well as hail and rain storms.

In most cases, impact-resistant shingles will last longer than standard asphalt shingles. This is because they are reinforced with synthetic polymers which can take the beating dished out by the Chicagoland weather.


Aptly named, energy-saving shingles are designed to save you energy. They do this by providing top-notch insulation, ensuring that only minimal amounts of heat and cold are entering your home.

Available in a variety of styles and colors, energy-saving shingles provide the same general aesthetics provided by other types of asphalt-based shingles. If you are hoping to save as much money on energy bills as possible, energy-saving shingles can be a very smart choice. They are the most insulated as roofing materials come.


Cedar shakes are a roofing material all their own. They are entirely different from asphalt-based shingles, possessing a unique appearance that looks terrific on homes of all kinds. In use for hundreds of years, cedar shakes will often be found in old antique style or large luxury homes.

However, cedar shakes are not used solely for their design capabilities. This is a high-quality roofing material that excels in almost every way imaginable. Exceedingly durable and highly resistant to weather, cedar shakes are a terrific choice for any homeowner in the Chicagoland area.


To ensure that you are choosing the right roofing material for your home, it’s highly recommended that you compare different materials in person. If you are interested in doing so, you can stop by one of Olson’s showrooms in either Barrington or Warrenville. Our showrooms are stocked with models of our most commonly installed roofing materials.
