Residential Roofing

Midwest Roofing offers comprehensive, high-quality residential roofing services in Southern California at competitive prices

We have more than 30 years of experience installing, maintaining,
inspecting, and repairing all kinds of roofs.



Your time is valuable. When you schedule a new roof installation, we pull all permits, meet the city inspector for all inspections, and complete the project in a timely manner.

New Roof Installations

Our expert estimators can help you determine which roof is best for your home and your budget. As a manufacturer-approved installer, we're familiar with the strengths and weaknesses of each roofing system, so we can help you make the most informed choice. You can choose from our wide selection of residential roofing systems, available in a variety of styles, colors, shapes, and sizes.

Shingle Roofing System
Shingle roofs come in a variety of colors to match your home, and we can offer you an extended warranty by the manufacturer of whichever shingle roof you choose.


Tile Roofing System
Tile roofs come in numerous colors, styles, and weights. The look a customer is trying to achieve will determine the type of tile they choose, as well as the price.


Wood Shake and Simulated Wood Shake
Before you decide on a wood shake roof, we will need to determine if your city allows this type of roofing system. Some cities don't allow wood shake roofs due to the fire hazard. The actual wood shake material does not have a Class A fire rating under the UL rating system, but by adding the appropriate underlayment, we can make it into a Class A roofing system.

For customers who want the appearance of wood shake, but the added protection of a Class A roofing system, we can also install a tile roof that looks like wood shake.


Slate Roofing Systems
Slate quarried for roofing is extremely tough and durable. Slate roofing systems may last up to 100 years, and they come in numerous colors, sizes and textures. This allows for a variety of different architectural effects. We typically recommend installing copper metal and flashings when installing a slate roof.

The cost of slate roofs is relatively expensive. Some manufacturers offer a simulated slate roof to offset the expense of real slate.


Flat Roofs for Residential Homes
Although Built-Up Roofing Systems (BUR) and Modified Rubber Roofing Systems are often used commercially, these types of roofs can also be used effectively for residential homes.

Built-Up Roofing Systems
BUR roofing systems are the most popular and conventional roofs on the market today. There are several different types of BUR roofing systems available for installation. All BUR systems are "built up" using hot asphalt.

Modified Bitumen Rubber Roofing Systems
Modified Bitumen Rubber Roofing Systems are applied with a hand-held torch. On larger jobs, a "dragon wagon" is used. This is a 3-foot-wide machine pulled by one technician. Modified rubber is similar to single ply as they both consist of one layer of waterproofing. All drains, metal, and flashing get an extra layer of modified rubber. This is what we in the roofing industry call "sandwiching the metal."

The application of a Modified Bitumen Roof is more convenient than the application for BUR systems, since a kettle and hot asphalt are not needed, and the pricing is comparable to that of the higher-end BUR Systems.


Our experienced crews are trained and certified in all of the roofing systems we offer, and we complete a 12-point quality control inspection after every installation.

All of our new roof installations are covered by a full warranty and manufacturer guarantee. We complete projects on time and within budget, and we take care to prevent any damage to lawns, flowers, bushes, or trees on your property.

We will complete your reroofing project safely and on time, securing all the necessary permits and arranging all the required city inspections.

Our estimators are highly knowledgeable about all of the roofing systems we offer and can help you make an informed decision about the best one for your home and your budget.

All of our new roof installations—including replacements—are covered by a full warranty and manufacturer guarantee. We complete projects on time and within budget, and we take care to prevent any damage to lawns, flowers, bushes, or trees on your property.

Preventative roof maintenance is critical to having a safe and healthy roof.

Roof Maintenance

Just as your car requires regular maintenance to continue running well, your roof needs routine maintenance to function optimally over time. Routine roof maintenance helps prevent damage, wear, and the need for early replacement. In our experience, over 50% of water leaks could have been prevented with routine roof maintenance. Therefore, maintaining your roofing system can save you money in the long run.

At Midwest Roofing, we offer expert routine and periodic roof maintenance services at competitive prices. For previous customers, we store individual contact and roof information (including warranty and contract information) in our comprehensive database. Then our warranty administrator contacts each customer on a yearly basis to schedule annual roof preventative maintenance. We also offer periodic or occasional roof maintenance services to new and returning customers.

Preventive Maintenance
Preventative maintenance is a yearly service required by the roofing material manufacturers in order to keep your material warranties intact. During a preventative maintenance service visit, our skilled technicians will do the following:

  • Thoroughly inspect all roof drains and scuppers and seal as necessary
  • Thoroughly inspect all pipe and vent locations for cracking or separation of tile from the metal flanges. They will check the condition of the secondary seal of roof cement or sealant around the base of the jack and reseal as needed.
  • Thoroughly inspect and replace all broken tile, hips, ridges and rakes
  • Clean all rain gutters and downspouts as needed and remove all rooftop debris
  • Thoroughly inspect and repair all edge metal
  • Thoroughly inspect and seal, as needed, all roof-to-wall junctions and chimney flashings
  • Thoroughly inspect and seal, as needed, all valley metal and skylights
  • Repair all visible potential leaks
  • Thoroughly inspect completed job to ensure maximum quality and lasting repairs

Ponding Water (Standing Water)
The most important function of a roofing system is to keep water out of the building. The second most important function is to drain the water off the roof. Unfortunately, as time passes, buildings settle, rafters and decking deteriorate, and as a result, areas of the roof may begin to collect ponding (or standing) water.

The best solution for ponding water is a Tapered Designed Insulation System. We will engineer the roof so all water flows to the drains. This is an expensive option, but it will eliminate the ponding water.

Adding new drains, scuppers, and crickets, and building up the low areas, are other options for a roof with standing water. These options are not as expensive or effective as the Tapered System, but they will help reduce ponding water.

No manufacturer will guarantee a roofing system that ponds water. The only exception to this rule is Single Ply Roofing Systems.

Flashing Details, Drains, Skylights, and Air Conditioning Units
Flashing details, drains, skylights, and air conditioning units are the most important parts of your roofing system. We have found that less than 5% of water leaks come from the general field of the roofing system, while more than 95% occur around these four elements. This is why Midwest Roofing pays extreme attention to them when working with the building envelope. We install extra layers of 11-pound ply sheets around all flashings, edge metal, drains, skylights, and equipment curbs. We also strongly recommend having all air conditioning units properly sealed by an authorized air conditioning contractor.


We provide expert, affordable repair services for almost any roof problem, and we perform all work with fast turnaround and minimal disruption to your home.

Roof Inspections

We offer thorough roof inspections and expert roof repairs at very competitive prices. As a manufacturer-approved installer, we are familiar with all the major brands in roofing, so our inspection and repair services are knowledgeable, accurate, and reliable. We are also manufacturer-approved to perform warranty repairs. Whatever the problem, our experienced repairmen will assess and fix the damage as quickly as possible, while still meeting the highest quality standards.

We diagnose and repair the following roof problems:

  • Damaged Flashing
  • Dry Rot Damage
  • Leaky Roof
  • Missing Shingles
  • Mold Damage
  • And more

We'll come to you to conduct a thorough roof inspection. Then we'll give you a comprehensive report of your roof's condition, including a professional recommendation for the specific repairs needed.

When your roof requires a repair, it provides you with an opportunity to perform cost-effective roof maintenance at the same time. Doing this will be less expensive and disruptive than scheduling it as a separate project.

Roof Repair

When evaluating a roofing system for a repair, we will determine a number of factors before we offer a customized solution. The following is a list of questions our qualified estimators will ask:

  • How old is the roof?
  • How many leaks do you have?
  • How long has it been leaking?
  • Have you made previous attempts to repair the leak?
  • What are your plans for staying in the building/house in the future?
  • How often have you had roof maintenance done?

It takes a highly qualified technician to properly troubleshoot and repair a roof. Our roof repair technicians each have at least 10 years of experience as foremen, and they perform quality, professional repairs to the highest standards.
