Built-Up Roofing (BUR)
Roofing by Hernandez
Built-Up Roofing (BUR) Systems. Roofing by Hernandez has been working with Built-Up Roofing, or BUR as it is known, for as long as we’ve been in roofing – which is a lifetime. As one of the oldest roofing systems still in use around Chicagoland, this system relies heavily on layered material to form a barrier between moisture and the outside elements and the interior of your home or business. This layering takes experience to understand, let alone apply correctly, so make sure you’re working with only the best possible roofing contractor for your BUR project – Roofing by Hernandez. You can contact us by using our Contact form or by calling (312) 439-0556 today to get the ball rolling!
While BUR may be an older system when compared to modern plastics, it’s still in use because, when installed correctly, it does the job well and for much less than many of the alternatives. Yet, the installation or repair work must be done properly or you could be in for far more trouble than the material savings is worth. After all, with layered material like this, if there’s an issue it may not even be immediately apparent to the untrained eye, so an expert on-scene is vital to getting the work you need assessed and delivered. That’s exactly what you get when you work with Roofing by Hernandez. We make built-up roofing easy.
Once you’ve contacted Roofing by Hernandez, we’ll send out one of our professional estimators to inspect your roofing before presenting our free estimate which includes our recommendations. We do our best to give you several options, if at all possible, and allow you to make your own decision. And, we answer every question you may have to be certain it’s an informed decision. Just know that when you partner with us for your roofing work you’ll get every ounce of our energy and enthusiasm and all the attention you need to feel good about your choice. So, reach out today to learn more about our BUR process!
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.
Roofing by Hernandez is a certified installer of GAF materials – including their unbeatable shingles. We recommend these incredibly durable shingles to each of our clients – as well as similar products from Owens Corning. We maintain a close relationship with both manufacturers and our certification means we can pass on their manufacturer’s warranty after installation. And, that’s on top of our own satisfaction guarantee which comes with all of our roofing work, so you have absolutely nothing to lose by calling (312) 439-0556 today to work with the best shingle roofer in all Chicagoland. One call is all it takes to start planning your new shingle roof with the best in the business!
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.
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.
While it has a long and complicated scientific name, EPDM roofing can be simply viewed as one of the most durable synthetic materials found in roofing. It’s made from oil and natural gas which forms a kind of plastic that can withstand all kinds of abuse – from weathering to even fire damage. The system comes in white and black to combat ultraviolet radiation, as well as two separate thicknesses to offer even greater durability to those who need it. Roofing by Hernandez can install this system using three different methods and will offer the method we feel will work best for your particular structure. We’ll work closely with you to guarantee your residential or commercial EPDM project goes off without a hitch and all it takes is one call to (312) 439-0556.
Sheet Metal Roofing
When you’re looking to add some real distinction to your property, there are few things that can add more drama and aesthetic value than a sheet metal roof. Though they can be more expensive than other options, there’s real value for the money when you consider the lifespan and appearance of the structure after the rooftop is completed. Roofing by Hernandez has the talent, the techniques, and the tools required to fabricate, install, and repair any sheet metal roof you could possibly dream up – even custom work. With a wide range of colors and metals to choose from, call the pros at (312) 439-0556 to speak with a team member about your property’s metal roofing. We make roofing that easy.
Fluid Applied Membranes
Whether you have an industrial, institutional, or commercial enterprise, or whether you own a three-flat residential building, there’s no better way to protect your property from the damages caused by moisture than a fluid-applied roof membrane properly applied by the experts from Roofing by Hernandez. This cold-applied fluid hardens to create an effective moisture barrier between the elements and your actual roofing material. This makes it the ideal way to “reroof” before the season turns and give your property that extra layer of protection it needs to make it through the tough months ahead. The costs are far less than a new roof installation and the work can be done with little invasion of your everyday operations. It’s as easy as calling (312) 439-0556 to get an incredibly effective waterproofing material before the weather makes life miserable.
Cool Roof Coatings
Though Chicago is known more for its cold weather than its sunshine and heat, the urban heat zones around the city can reach upwards of 100° during the long hot summers. Those temperatures, depending on where your structure is located, may not come down very much overnight due to the heat island effect caused by so much concrete, so having an expert roofer come to your property for an application of a cool roof coating is just what you need to lower those energy bills and keep your property nice and cool all summer long. Roofing by Hernandez specializes in cool roof coating s wi9th a full range of products to offer for your specific needs. Call (312) 439-0556 today to schedule a visit and get that heat under control.
