The roof of a home is often considered a house’s most important feature. The roof is the ultimate protecting shield for any structure. It’s what keeps the weather out. In a lot of ways, it’s the critical component that provides the majority of the shelter that people need to live comfortably.
When a roof begins to fail, it sets off a chain reaction of problem after problem after problem. As soon as a leak crops up, rainwater, snow, ice, and other weather hazards make their way into the home and begin causing damage. That’s why it’s crucial that you replace your roof when it is needed.
Putting Your Best (Roof) Forward!
J W Bailey Construction got its start many years ago as a roofing contractor. Our team of licensed and professional tradesmen have repaired and replaced hundreds of roofs over the years. We’ve mastered this trade and can offer fast, competent, efficient, clean, and affordable replacement and repair services. We are a certified GAF Contractor, so we can design and install GAF roofing systems.
In addition to traditional, asphalt shingle roofing, our roofing experts can also work with:
- EPDM Roofing. This type of roofing is a durable, long-lasting, synthetic rubber roofing membrane that is rolled onto a roof, forming a perfect seal over the entire roof space. Its longevity and cost-effective nature make EPDM a popular choice among homeowners and business owners alike.
- • Metal roofing. We work with multiple types of metal roofing, including ribbed panel (this is what most people see on barns and residential homes, where the fastener is exposed next to the “ribs”). We also work with standing seam metal roofs. These are more expensive but also one of the most durable and weather-tight roofing systems available. Standing seam metal roofs are sometimes preferred for their hidden fasteners and are sometimes even referred to as hidden fastener metal roofs. Standing seam/hidden fastener is what people are likely to see on commercial buildings, but we can install these on residential structures too.
What is EPDM?
EPDM is a strong and resilient flat roofing option as it is tear resistant and withstands a tremendous of weather and environmental conditions such heat, UV rays, cold and ozone. EPDM stands for ethylene propylene diene monomer. It is the chemicals (monomers) that are mixed together in various proportions to form it. These chemicals are ethylene, propylene and diene. Ethylene is the starting material for several industrial syntheses and is the most important organic chemical that is manufactured since it is the building block for a wide range of chemicals including plastics. Ethylene starts as a gas and probably comes from the word ether. Propylene is generally used to make films, fibers, containers, packaging etc. Diene monomers provide the cross-linking and gives the material incredible resilience, flexibility and durability.
We’ll Get it Done Right
When your roof is on its last leg and you need it replaced, the benefits you get by choosing J W Bailey Construction make our team the clear choice. We will treat you with kindness, professionalism, compassion for your present situation, and an honorable insistence that the job is done right the first time.
And last but not least, a roofing contractor should also be a proficient siding contractor, which J W Bailey Construction is! Roofers should understand how siding works and should be able to transition a new roof down to the siding with ease. If they don’t understand siding, they could install the roof incorrectly. That could result in mold and rot as well as leaks into their home. Because J W Bailey Construction is proficient in roofing and siding, this will never happen with us.
The Peace of Mind that Comes with a New Roof
You haven’t known real comfort and peace of mind until you’ve relaxed on the couch after a contractor has left your home on the last day of a roofing project. There is no feeling like knowing your roof was installed by licensed and experienced professionals who did great work and who guarantee the roof to function properly for decades.

From Dylan R., a recent client of ours:
“Jeremy B***** arrived the day I called for a quote, and had a price for me within an hour. His quote was very competitive for the exact same materials and products that others had quoted for thousands of dollars more. He assured me, when contracts were signed, that his workmanship would exceed my expectations. He later called to tell me that the materials were ordered, the building permit was in hand and scheduled the best time for the dumpster to be delivered. Jeremy started promptly on the morning we had scheduled. He fought a couple days of rainy weather, but never left without making sure the roof was weathertight and the grounds around the house were cleaned up. He removed two layers of stubborn roofing, repaired any rotten decking and immaculately sealed all vents and chimney. Not once did I see him without a smile on his face! Jeremy obviously loves his work and the quality job that he promised was delivered and truly exceeded my expectations. He went above and beyond to do a beautiful roof replacement. I couldn’t be happier with the results.”
