Built-Up Roofing (BUR)

Built-up roofing, or more commonly known as tar & gravel roofing, is one of the oldest roofing systems still in use around Chicago and for good reason. It does a good job and is hard to beat for specific commercial applications. It’s inexpensive and its layering gives it exceptional water resistance when installed correctly. And, that’s the key to BUR roofing – it has to be installed by professionals who understand the materials. Otherwise, it could end up being nothing more than a consistent headache due to leaks and incessant repairs. That’s why, if you plan on using BUR on your property, you need the experts from Roofing by Hernandez on the job. We make roofing easy with one call (312) 439-0556.

TPO & PVC Roofing

Roofing by Hernandez is the Chicago region’s #1 roofing company for installing, repairing, and maintaining TPO & PVC roofing systems. These systems represent the best way on the market to handle second generation roofing applications due to their light weight and flexibility and can stand up to abuse better than just about any other material on the market. These materials are extremely temperamental during installation, so you need the very best roofer you can get to handle the installation and repair work. Otherwise, the strengths of these systems become a weakness due to the possibility of moisture invading the system. In short, you need experts who know the material inside and out to be sure you’re getting a properly installed roof. Call (312) 439-0556 today to learn more about TPO & PVC options for your residential or commercial property.

Single-Ply Roofing

When you think about single-ply roofing, you’re actually thinking about two separate groups of materials – thermosets and thermoplastics. Both of these systems are sheet-based and perfect for large roofing projects where durability and UV-resistance are important factors. These sheets come in large sizes which eliminates the need for so many seams to be open to the elements. All single-ply systems have been manufactured with ingredients included to help combat ultraviolet radiation and do a great job at standing up to abuse from the environment. This system is ideal for handling large industrial concerns and our team can have them installed with skill and precision in no time. Call (312) 439-0556 to start the process to your new single-ply roofing system.

Modified Bitumen Roofing

Modified bitumen, or mod bit, roofing is a unique mixture of traditional and modern materials. It fuses the traditional asphalt roofing material with polyester or fiberglass to produce a material that’s light, strong, and incredibly durable. By using a layering method during application, the roofing installed will be strong, puncture resistant, and capable of standing up to the worst weather Chicago has to offer. And, because of the nature of the materials used, the roofing can be complex and intricate without lessening the effectiveness of the material. It’s perfect for industrial and commercial applications and costs less than you might think. You won’t know until you call (312) 439-0556 and speak with the pros at Roofing by Hernandez.
