If you run a business from an old building in Chicago, the chances are that you’ll need to replace the roof soon. Even if your roof is not an issue at the moment, most older roofs are beyond repair and restoration, and that’s where we can help you.
We provide all types of commercial re-roofing services in the Chicago area. We can help you extend the life of your commercial building for many years. After our experts do a quick inspection of your property, they will give you a detailed report with a cost estimation. If our price is right, they will refresh your building with a new, durable roof. Let’s look at all the available roofing jobs we provide.
Built-up roofs are made from three primary elements: felt, bitumen, and surfacing. Over time, build-up roofing can lose integrity and lead to structural damages. That usually happens when the felts, made from glass or polyester fibers, lose tension. Roofs like these last a long time, but once the felt loses its strength, they deteriorate very quickly. After we remove the old roofing, we use the same technique when installing the new roof.
EDPM Rubber Roofing
EDPM stands for ethylene propylene diene monomer, and it’s a type of thermoset roofing that offers exceptional performance in all weather conditions. It’s one of the most popular types of commercial roofing in Chicago due to the changing temperatures and conditions throughout the year.
EDPM roofs are 100% resistant to sunlight and moisture, and they are generally easy to install. The technique has been used for over 50 years, so it’s more like a traditional roofing solution. We use multiple methods when reinstalling EDPM roofs, depending on your needs. EDPM roofs are an excellent option for commercial buildings as they offer less repair and maintenance than most other available options.
Modified Bitumen Roofing
Modified bitumen roofing is a technique that came to the US from Europe during the early 70s. It is similar to EDPM roofing, but instead of using EDPM, it requires the use of multiple layers of rubber and bitumen. The rubber layers are laminated several times with fiberglass or polyester fabric. Once installed, the bottom layers are covered with a durable granular or smooth surface.
Depending on your needs, our experts can replace your old modified bitumen roofing with new materials of your choice. The result will give your commercial building a new look and years of protection.
Steep Slope Asphalt Roofing
If your building has a roof with slopes of 3:12 or greater, you will need a steep slope roofing replacement. We use the best materials for steep slope roofing, including asphalt rolls, shingles, clay tiles, wood shakes, and metal. We can also add another extra layer of single-ply membrane if needed. These types of roofs are generally very durable, as the water and debris slip down the sloped surface. They also don’t require a lot of maintenance, and they simply look good.
Depending on the type of material you choose, thermoplastic roofing is an excellent choice. It involves using thermoplastic membranes that provide extra durability, high-temperature tolerance, and low maintenance. These roofs last about 20 years on average and can withstand all weather conditions, punctures, and exposure to chemicals. They also help reduce energy bills due to their heat-resistant properties. This type of roof can cope with extreme weather and the strongest storms.
