I am so grateful I ran into him when I did! I was getting the runaround from another company on my roof repair. They were playing a waiting game with my insurance company. It was very stressful as time was being wasted and communication not happening!
Drew came along and said:
"We will get this done for you"!
He came right out the next day, he checked everything, he found more damages and asked for more repairs than the previous company. He submitted the estimate the same day!! Whereas the previous contractor was still promising after 2 weeks!
Drew Klass answered all my questions and gave me recommendations on contemporary popular colors. His and texting responses were nearly immediate!
The office support were prompt as well!
I cannot believe how easy he made this whole process! This guy is NO BULL and straight forward with answers to help YOU!!!

Only 2/3 of our 100+ year old house had gutters, so I sent an email submission through Gold Standard's website on a Sunday at 5pm. They called me Monday by 10am, had Jose out to estimate same day. Work was completed by Wednesday, same week. Our home has some frilly woodwork, and they easily modified the eaves to accommodate the gutter system. Great job, very happy. read less

Home is Where the Heart is!
Covering Neighborhoods in Crystal Lake and the Greater Chicago Area
Your roof is an important aspect of your overall well-being. However, the roof usually isn’t the first thing on your mind until it’s no longer doing its job. At Gold Standard Restoration, we understand it completely which is why we work hard to make sure your roof doesn’t interfere with your main focus – your family.
Roofs in Chicago’s suburbs can take a beating from the unpredictable weather and elements. Sometimes it’s only certain shingles that need to be repaired or replaced but sometimes your whole roof requires a complete overhaul.
Setting the Standard for Excellence
We too have standards as far as roofing and general contracting. Since it’s our specialty, we don’t work with just any roofing material or product, we have expectations that are met by only the best quality:
- Owens Corning Roofing, Insulation
- Composite Materials and Products
- CertainTeed Materials and Products
- General Aniline & Film (GAF) Materials and Products
- Tamko Materials and Products
- IKO Roofing Products
How do I know if I need to repair my roof?
Since your roof usually isn’t a topic of conversation, we understand you might have questions about how to tackle major roof projects, and knowing when your property needs roof repair or replacement can be difficult. Gold Standard’s experts are specially-trained to know what to look for when assessing a roof, as well as what type of service needs to be done.
As mentioned above, we use a lot of different kinds of material so we know what needs to be repaired and when your roof is assessed, we look for all types of damage to your roof that might eventually lead to more significant damage. We will also advise you of current problems that need to be repaired immediately if any are found.
How do I know what’s causing my roof to leak?
A leaky roof is a sure sign that your roof needs some attention and 90% of the time, roof leaks are the result of faulty roof installation from a company lacking in the standards to which we adhere. Improper nailing or shingle placement, or improper flashing are just a handful of the reasons your roof may be leaking.
Roof leaks can also be caused by a wide variety of factors:
- Hail impact or other major storm damage
- Falling tree limbs
- Walking on the roof
- Cracked, sun-damaged shingles
Other roofing problems may come from a clogged gutter or misaligned flue pipes in the chimney. For those unaware, a flue pipe is basically a ventilation system for the components in your home that produce heat while they work. Mainly your fireplace, water heater, or furnace and if those are installed incorrectly, they can cause your roof to fail in very serious ways.
Consequently, water can flow where it shouldn’t, and seep into the walls and interior of your property and as everyone knows, that will only cause more financial issues.
It’s time you received both the customer service and results you deserve from a local roofing company that sets the standard for excellence – Gold Standard Restorations.
Exterior Construction and Remodeling
for the Northwest Chicago Suburbs
The exterior architecture and design of your property are incredibly important both in terms of its appearance and its ability to protect your family from the harsh elements that the state of Illinois encounters. Not only is your exterior the first thing that people notice about your house, but it also keeps the rest of the structure of your house together.
The siding on your home is the first line of defense against Mother Nature. It can be both decorative and functional, but should always perform properly to shield your interior from the crazy Lake Michigan weather. We offer a range of siding construction options from spot repairs to full replacements and it is all to make sure you’re not only protected but to ensure your home raises the standard for overall curb appeal.
Even if you need some minor repairs, our experts can match your existing siding to its exact specifications. If you’re looking for a full re-siding or remodel to your home’s exterior, Gold Standard Restoration can and will offer a wide variety of colors and materials. We have a high standard that our quality products must meet before we use them on the exterior of your home and they are not only beautiful, but they’re durable, weather-resistant, and energy-efficient as well.
Some of the most popular siding products that we can install include the following:
- Vortex Extreme by Plygem
- Mastic Home Exteriors by Plygem
- James Hardie
- Royal Building Products
Your roof’s health can often come down to the functionality of your gutters. Old or damaged gutters can quickly cause a lot of problems, so it’s important to replace them to avoid costly issues.
Gold Standard’s professionally-trained experts can install seamless aluminum gutters, downspouts, and extensions to perfectly fit your home’s exterior – or create a new facade. When it comes to exterior remodels, siding repair, or gutter replacement, it’s our standard to make sure every detail is accounted for.
