Exteriors are Crucial to the
Long-term Value of Your Property

A leaking roof can wreak havoc on your structure. Old or damaged siding and windows won’t keep the bad things – like moisture, pests, and extreme temperatures – out, increasing your costs. RPM understands the need to cost-effectively maintain the integrity of your home or business.
RPM has installed roofing, siding, and windows on single-family homes and multi-family commercial properties in the Madison area for over 10 years. Whether it’s roofing, siding, or windows, RPM makes meeting all of your exterior needs as simple as possible.

For all of the work that we do, once we are on-site, we use checklists for installation, cleanup, warranty documents, etc. to be sure we take care of each step. We also have a full-time, on-site quality control manager at every job to stay on top of things and assure we do your job right the first time.

Trust RPM to Replace Your Roof

A sturdy, weather-tight roof doesn’t happen by accident. Every year hundreds of complaints about shoddy roofing jobs are filed with the BBB and state consumer watchdogs. It pays to hire a knowledgeable roofing professional you can trust.

What to Expect When You Call RPM

From the moment you call us, we demonstrate our knowledge and professionalism. RPM gives give you a guaranteed proposal for your roofing work, with guaranteed pricing unless we encounter something that couldn’t be foreseen until we started removing your existing roofing. We use satellite imaging to estimate the square footage of your roof. Using this tool reduces the potential for falls and damage from walking around on your roof, which in turn helps to reduce our costs.

Remember to Ask About Ventilation

Especially for homeowners of older homes, you should require your contractor to help evaluate whether you should increase your attic ventilation. Be sure your contractor tells you what they will do to assure proper attic venting, how they will balance roof/attic venting with your intake vents. Putting a new roof on your home is the best time to look for and fix potential ventilation issues.

RPM Installs all of the most Common Roofing Materials

Significant advances have been made in roofing materials in recent years. Your choices today go well beyond asphalt shingles, slate, and clay or concrete tile. Today’s materials give you a wide range of looks, colors, and finishes to choose from. RPM specializes in asphalt shingles, but we install all of the common roofing materials available including solar tiles, metal roofing, built-up roofing (typically for commercial applications), and rubber membrane roofing.

Your best choice for roofing material depends on a number of factors – the Wisconsin climate, age of your home, and what you can afford. RPM will be able to answer all of your questions and suggest the appropriate roofing material for your home. You can also talk with any neighbors that have recently had their roofs replaced to see what their contractor used. Be sure to ask why their contractor chose that material.

Preventing Ice Dams

Ice dams can be very destructive both outside and inside your home. Ice dams are areas of ice that form on your roof and prevent snowmelt from running off, creating a pooling of water which then leaks into your home. These ice dams can form for several reasons, but they are usually caused by warmer air leaking into exterior spaces, like your eaves.

A good contractor will be knowledgeable about preventing ice dams and should let you know if they see any potential problems. Prevention is pretty basic – making sure that your attic/roof is kept at the same temperature as the eaves prevents warmer internal temperatures melting water while the colder eaves are still frozen. RPM will be able to tell you if you need to increase ventilation, add insulation, and/or take steps to seal areas that could possibly leak warm air.

Siding Done by Professionals

RPM works with all the common siding materials, including:

Hardie Board

Also known as cement board siding. Invented many years ago but still in use because it is so durable, comes in a wide variety of colors and textures, and is still a very affordable option.


Likely the most damage-resistant and durable material available. Steel also has good insulating qualities for extreme weather conditions.


A flexible material in many ways, vinyl siding has been greatly improved over the years. It comes in a wide variety of colors, finishes, and qualities available.

There are many reasons new siding may be needed:

  • Hail damage
  • Damage from wildlife
  • Extremely faded siding
  • Outdated color
  • Dry rot
  • A new addition
  • Cracked or loose siding

Having RPM replace your siding can both protect your structure and be a great long-term investment in the value of your property. Call RPM and let us do what we do best so you are free to do what you do what you do best! Contact us for a free estimate. Give us a call at 608.556.3736.

Windows: Not Just for Letting Light and Air in

Windows play an important role in both the appearance and structural integrity of your home. They also significantly impact your heating and cooling bills.
