Cool Roofs

A cool roof reflects more of the sun’s heat than a typical roof, lowers indoor temperatures, and can reduce summer energy bills by up to 20%. The low-slope roof on your row home or business is a great candidate for a cool roof. Cool roofs have a liquid acrylic base and are a safe install, no open flames, fumes, or petroleum.

Through our partnerships with homeowners, small businesses, and local non-profits, we have achieved a contribution to the reduction of the heat island effect in Baltimore City. We are certified by the nation’s top manufacturer of cool roof systems, Sykes Restorations is proud to be Baltimore’s industry leader in Cool Roofing Acrylics since 2005.



Naturally sustainable and everlasting, slate roofs have provided centuries of weather protection and appeal to buildings all across the world. We specialize in the service and installation of slate, and have a variety of reclaim slate in our inventory that may be the perfect fit for your home or business.




Asphalt shingles are our most economical alternative to the traditional roofing systems of historic buildings, offering a variety of colors and profiles to compliment your building’s exterior. We’ll gladly recommend the right asphalt shingles for your roof, and install them as professionally as we would any of the higher end roofing options, to ensure a long lasting roof that requires little maintenance.

From 20oz. copper flat panels to faux steel “shingles”, a metal roof is one of the best applications on the market. Many of the original Baltimore row home roofs were metal, and have long since been replaced with asphalt products. Metal roofing has a lifespan of 50+ years, requiring little maintenance and offering tremendous curb appeal. We also restore existing metal roofs, ask us about systems to preserve your roof.
