Worked with Cleveland Ohio Roofing and experience was great. Work was explained very well and verified by pictures.


Mike, Brunswick, Ohio

Rob approached my relatively small repair job as if it were a large tear-off and replacement. In other words, he took my needs seriously and treated the work as importantly as a did. He conducted a thorough assessment, provided options, and discussed the pros and cons of each. The work was completed on time and clean-up was impeccable (haven't found one nail or shingle in the weeks since work). More importantly, Rob made extra trips to my home and worked an extra Saturday to make sure the final job was exactly to our liking. I was pleasantly surprised by Rob's extra effort to take care of us and ensuring we got exactly what we wanted. I recommend Rob and Cleveland Ohio Roofing highly.

In the high-end furniture business, roof leaks are unacceptable. Cleveland Ohio Roofing is the first call I make for our roofing needs. They are reliable, prompt and provide great service.

John Maley, Rite Aid Pharmacy, Elyria, Ohio

Cleveland Ohio Roofing responded very timely to my work request. Their job estimate and final work order coincided completely and the job was done on time. The tenant was very complimentary of their high degree of professionalism. I would highly recommend Cleveland Ohio Roofing and its team.

Jim Rosati, Honey Hut Ice Cream, Brunswick, Ohio

Dear Bob, Thank you and your crew for doing a fantastic job on the repairs and custom modification to our building. Since our original GC and their subcontractor left us with less-than-satisfactory results, I took it upon myself as the building owner to find a roofing contractor who cared about fit and finish and took pride in craftsmanship. Robert Krane and his crew at Cleveland Ohio Roofing worked for over a week patching, fabricating, and fixing whatever they could, and ended up with excellent results. I truly feel the repairs and corrective actions they took will assure me the proper life expectancy of a metal roof.

Architectural Shingles

Architectural (or dimensional) shingles are renowned for their layered, three-dimensional appearance, which adds depth and character to the roof. They offer several advantages:

  • Cost-Effectiveness: These shingles provide a high return on investment through their balance of affordability and durability.
  • Simple Installation: Unlike some roofing materials, architectural shingles do not require specialized installation techniques, making them a cost-effective option.
  • Aesthetic Appeal: Available in a range of colors and styles, they enhance the visual appeal of any home.
  • Longevity: With options available for 30 to 40-year lifespans, these shingles are designed to last longer than traditional 3-tab shingles.

One notable distinction is that architectural shingles generally cannot be laid over existing roofing (a practice known as "layovers") as easily as 3-tab shingles. In most cases, the old roofing must be completely removed before installation.
