Rooftech Systems will provide an honest, reliable, no nonsense approach to all your roofing questions and concerns.

After years of owning your home, the inevitable happens–an unexpected leaky roof leaves you blindly scrambling on the internet and white pages for a roofing company. Hoping to find a reputable, experienced and licensed contractor can quickly turn into a nightmare or guessing game.  This is a big investment for the homeowner and neither scenario is an option for the majority of us.

Enter into the equation John Gorgol, owner and operator of  Rooftech Systems, a full service roofing contractor specializing in shingle and flat roofs, as well as modified bitumen, complete tear offs, roof ventilation and minor repairs. They also replace and repair gutters, gutter leaf protection, soffit and fascia.

John began his professional career in 1972 working with his father, who alongside John’s grandfather founded J.J. Gorgol & Son Roofing ( est. 1940). When he retired in 1995, he took his hands on experience and struck out on his own to form Rooftech Systems.

John has 43 years of personal experience serving the Chicagoland and suburban area.  When asked what garnered his extensive success rate with clients, he responded “We go beyond the basics with innovative maintenance programs, extended warranties, and great customer service ensuring the customer’s total satisfaction and their roof’s long term performance.”

Gorgol’s company, a member of the National Roofing Contractors Association, has grown over the past 20 years to employ over 15 workers, but still maintains the personal touch for his clients. Every employee has training critical to maintaining the high standard that has been set. As a certified contractor with GAF, LP Siding and Raindrop Gutter Guard, Rooftech Systems employees are required to successfully complete factory training with those companies in order to maintain this certification. OSHA safety training is also mandatory.

 John remains at the forefront of his company and still provides the estimates himself. He is available to answer every question and quiet any concerns the homeowner may have.  “I chose to stay small and local, but maintain quality service. My main goal to ensure the quality in workmanship and materials is evident on each and every job, no matter how big or small.”

Rooftech Systems is accredited with the Better Business Bureau with an A+ rating. They are a Certified Green roofing business and recycle all of their disposal materials. Maintaining John’s personal connection with his hometown of Darien, he has previously done work for the Darien Police Station, Village Hall and the Darien Park District.
