  • McLane Construction deals with all aspects of roofing, from tear offs to installation. We specialize in diagnosing the problems and ensuring they do not happen again. We can help you decide if it's just a patch job you need or if the work must be more extensive. Our attention to detail such as specialized flashing techniques and proper ventilation makes sure that your roof will last and that we will not be getting a call from you in the middle of a rain storm. Here is a brief list of the materials that we can use for your roofing project.
        
    • Asphalt Shingles Also known as "Laminated" or "Architectural" shingles. Come with a 50 year manufacturer's warranty. The most versatile, common and inexpensive roofing material. Brands: Malarkey, Timberline, Certainteed, IKO, Tamko
    • Metal Available in a variety of materials and styles. There are three common styles: 1) Barn roof, also known as screw down, or tuff rib 2) Standing seam metal, which could either be snap lock or mechanical lock 3) Corrugated Metal. Manufacturer: Bridger Steel
    • Wood Shakes and Shingles The main appeal of this style of roof is its traditional aesthetics. Wood shingles give a more uniform look while shakes are thicker and can appear more rustic.
    • Flat Roofs Also known as "low sloped roofs." These very shallow pitched roofs must be treated differently because of how slowly they drain water. Rubber roofing can be used down to a 1/4 and 12 (2% grade) and rolled roofing can be used down to a 1 and 12 (8% grade).
  • Siding is available in several different styles and materials. Mclane Construction will help pick out the right type of siding to meet your style, needs, and budget. Here are some examples of the different types of siding that can be used for your home or business.
    • Wood Wood siding typically comes in three styles: lap siding, board and batten, and shingles. Although this material is traditional and renewable, it comes with higher maintenance and usually has to be repainted every 5 to 10 years.
    • Metal The same options for a metal roof also exist for siding. Bridger Steel offers a variety of materials and styles including screw down, standing seam, and corrugated metal. Your metal siding can be cold rolled allowing it to superficially rust to give it a rustic and unique look.
    • Cement Board Cement board siding is used as a wood replacement. Due to cement board's synthetic nature it is very uniform and easy to install. It can come pre-finished, painted or stained to your color of choice, and should not have to be painted again for at least 15 years.
  • McLane Construction works to make the process of pouring concrete smooth, efficient and easy. Our team has years of experience, combined with all the equipment for a variety of concrete jobs. From the foundation of your home, to the slabs in your garage or the footings on your new deck, Mclane Construction can make this process quick and painless.
  • Whether starting from scratch with new construction or remodeling your current home, McLane Construction is reliable and expedient . Our talented and experienced team of builders can work with you and your architect to build your home or business. The end result will be sturdy, long lasting and will meet your exact needs and specifications.
  • McLane Construction can act as your general contractor for any size project including a new building.
  • From a new roof to a patch in the bathroom floor, we welcome all size projects. Often remodels come with unexpected surprises as you uncover what is behind the dry wall or under the crawl space. We make sure all options are considered through an open dialog and honesty with our clients. We can help you figure out what needs to be replaced, shored up or what will last another couple of years.

Frequently Asked Questions



  • Will my insurance cover the cost to replace my roof?

    We can spot damage and work with your insurance company.

     

    Your insurance company should cover the cost of anything that was damaged in the storm: roof, windows, siding, hot tub covers... It is important to double check the insurance adjuster's estimate because they can miss things like drip edge, gutters, and damaged sheeting, or may not consider things like Montana's matching policy regarding shingle and siding colors. Another important consideration to make sure of is code upgrades. With a strong working knowledge of Bozeman's and the surrounding area's building codes and over 100 claims of experience, we can make sure you get all of the money you deserve.

  • Is your work guaranteed?

    We take pride in our work.

     

    We want your roof looking and working right because we believe our quality is what sets us apart and we know this is what makes our clients happy. If you have any problems with our work, just call or e-mail us and we will be out as soon as possible. Copies of our workmanship warranties are available upon request.

  • Are you insured?

    Yes

     

    McLane Construction has a current business license in Bozeman, Belgrade, Livingston, and West Yellowstone. We are a registered contractor with the State of Montana. The business and our employees have liability and workman's comp insurance and all sub-contractors that work for us are at the least covered by liability insurance. Our job sites and work practices always obey OSHA regulations. By playing by the rules we not only protect our business and employees, but this also prevents our clients from ending up with damaging claims.

  • My roof is leaking! What do I do?

    Call us!

     

    Just call or e-mail us and we will be out as soon as possible to take a look and make any quick fixes possible to mitigate the immediate problem. We can then take a more thorough look and write you up an estimate to fix the problem permanently.

  • Do I have storm damage?

    Check for the Signs

    Outdated three tab asphalt shingles pealing from years of harsh weather. Broken shingles from hail damage can lead to a leaky roof. Even your grill cover could be replaced by your insurance company. A nick in siding from hail.

  • Is it time to get a new roof?

    Lets have a look.

    So that we can prevent something like this from happening...
  • I have children and pets; are you conscientious about site cleanliness and safety?

    Yes!

    We button up the site at the end of everyday including running over the surrounding yard and decks with a high powered magnent to pick up any stray nails and metal. If it snows during a job and scrap is buried, you keep $500 until we are able to clean up thoroughly after the snow has melted.
  • Can you be accommodating to special schedule requests?

    We traditionally work weather and light permitting. If you have a dinner party, the kids need to be asleep, or like a quiet weekend we are happy to work with your needs to get the job done.
  • I am selling my house and need a new roof fast, can you work with my deadline?

    This will be schedule dependent, but we will do the best we can to fit you in, get some extra help, and work extra hours to meet your time constraint.
  • Do you work with green materials and technologies?

    We would love to move in this direction and would be excited for an oportunity to expand our portfolio to include techniques such as green roofs and strawbale construction. We are in contact with subcontractors proficient in solar panels and geothermal. If there is a certain product you are interested in we are happy to look into it and do some research for you.


What People Are Saying

  • Pete and the McLane Construction crew exceeded my expectations. They  re-sided my house after hail damage and were efficient, professional and worked  with the insurance company, which was no easy task.  Everything came  in as budgeted.  I have recommended him to my friends and they too are  very happy with his work. I'd use him again without hesitation.
    Doug Chabot
  • I have  worked with many contractors in the area and my experience with McLane has been very good. The consistency of several things impress me:  The quality of their workmanship; Their willingness to go above and beyond as an advocate for their client in dealing with the insurance companies; The efficiency of their crew; Their sensitivity to time constraints of an operating restaurant so as not to inconvenience staff or guests; Site clean up and attention to detail.  I have had the pleasure of knowing the owner Pete McLane of over six years both personally and professionally and I think very highly of his personal integrity and work ethic.  I would definitely hire his company again.
    Pete Strom Owner/Operator of La Parrilla and The Garage
  • When working with McLane Construction I found many attributes beneficial : your craftsmanship and attention to detail, professionalism , and flexibility.  You did a great job of working within the agreed upon budget while at the same time providing exceptional quality.  When faced with a budget limitation on an enhancement  that we requested, you demonstrated flexibility and creativity in enabling the project to proceed.  I appreciate the work that you did directly with my insurance company both in advance of getting stared and during the renovation.  Your team ensured that the waste from the construction was cleaned up each evening before leaving, which was particularly important to me given that we have young children.  Thank you for making such a dramatic enhancement to our home.
