Did you know?

Below are just a few of the residential roofing choices we offer.

GAF Roofing 

At Gold Standard Commercial Roofing, we place a big emphasis on quality. That’s why we rely on GAF products. GAF is North America’s largest manufacturer of residential and commercial roofing systems, and their products make roofs safer and more durable than many other products out there.

Are GAF Shingles the Right Choice for Your Home?

This investigative look at GAF shingles is for homeowners who are considering GAF products and want to do their due diligence before making the roofing material decision.

GAF shingles are ideal for homeowners who are considering GAF products for their homes. Gold Standard Commercial Roofing has installed GAF for many years and plenty of our customers have beautiful GAF shingles on their homes’ roofs.

GAF products show excellent durability: GAF’s most popular shingles including Timberline, Grand Sequoia, Grand Canyon, and Glenwood are well made with fiberglass-mesh reinforced asphalt. Shingles are built in multiple fused layers, and when installed, provide three to five layers of protection to the roof, depending on which line it is.


Uses Of Roof Shingles

The use of GAF roof shingles is very popular not only in the USA, but in Canada, Scandinavia, Australia, and Eastern Europe where they are used on everything from houses, condos, townhomes, and apartments,  to office buildings, shopping centers, malls, and industrial buildings.


Advantages of GAF Roof Shingles

GAF roof shingles are cost-effective, quick, easy to fit, thicker, stronger, and longer-lasting than shed felt and low maintenance roofs.

GAF roof shingles are quick and easy to fit – cedar shingles/shakes and slate tiles can be difficult to fix onto a roof and can take a long time if you’re not an expert.

Low maintenance – there is no need to clean them or paint them with antifungal treatments simply because there will not be any rotting.

Attractive – roof shingles come in different designs and colors so you can find the right one for you.

All our GAF roof shingles are CE approved. That means, they are fire retardant and resistant to very hot, very cold, and windy weather.


TAMKO Building Products is a leading manufacturer of residential and commercial roofing systems including shingles, waterproofing products, and different types of cement and coatings. 

Gold Standard Commercial Roofing uses TAMKO because they provide a variety of solutions from shingles, tile, and slate to suit the design and product needs of homeowners and property owners in Illinois. 

As a TAMKO Certified American roofing contractor, Gold Standard Commercial Roofing is able to provide our residential customers with TAMKO’s Mastercraft Limited Warranty Enhancement at no additional cost. Our team of residential roofing experts will work closely with you to determine what roofing products best suits your needs and budget.



Gold Standard Commercial Roofing and CertainTeed is committed to remodeling or restoring your home or property to a design and color standard that adds value and curb appeal.

Gold Standard Commercial Roofing is a CertainTeed Certified ShingleMaster. With more than 300 Roofing options to choose from, our certified roofing experts will work closely with you to select what CertainTeed products will best suit your home or property’s needs and your design desires.

CertainTeed’s asphalt shingles are regarded as some of the best shingles in the world! CertainTeed’s shingles are considered a “heavyweight brand” meaning their shingles contain more asphalt than most others. More weight per shingle equals better durability and impact resistance to guard against hail, wind, and other weather roof culprits.

CertainTeed offers strip shingles, dimensional shingles, premium shingles, metal/slate roof systems, and a host of trim, siding, sheathing, solar, decking, railing, and fencing products as well.


Owens Corning

A roof is much more than shingles. Owens Corning roofing system components protect against wind-driven rain, ice buildup, heat in the attic, and other risks brought by the elements.

Gold Standard Commercial Roofing is a certified Owen Corning Preferred Contractor so using OC’s products across one brand ensures they’re designed to work together, and it also gives you access to the best warranties from Owens Corning.

Owens Corning Seal Proof – Moisture Barrier

Owens Corning makes some of the best underlayments in the roofing industry:

Standard felt underlayment (basic)

ProArmor synthetic (better)

Deck Defense high performance synthetic (best)

The Owens Corning WeatherLock ice and water barrier are made in three tiers. The Premium Flex barrier protects valleys, eaves, rakes, and areas around chimneys. It’s best suited for very cold climates with frequent freeze/thaw cycles.


Owens Corning Defend

Owens Corning makes starter shingles in roll and strip form that provides extra coverage at roof eaves. Five hip and ridge shingle lines match OC’s range of shingle styles.

Owens Corning Provides Roof Ventilation

Owens Corning’s range of products for the soffit, ridge, and roof are tremendous! The vents allow fresh, dry air to flow into the attic and hot and/or humid air to escape. Proper ventilation optimizes airflow to get rid of excess heat and moisture which can damage your attic and roof.
