Cool Roof Coatings

Roofing by Hernandez

Cool Roof Coatings. After as many years in Chicago roofing as the team at Roofing by Hernandez has spent, you’re bound to have heard everything under the sun from manufacturers about this or that product being the best when it comes to roof preservation, energy efficiency, or reroofing. They’ve been producing these products for more than a hundred years and have been making the same claims for just as long, without any real benefit being seen by consumers or contractors alike. That was especially the case for products that claimed to rid rooftops of unwanted solar radiation that causes heat inside the structure and wears down roofing materials. But, thankfully, some manufacturers have actually hit on the right mix for just this type of product which we call cool roof coatings. You can learn more about the incredible benefits of cool roof coatings by calling (312) 439-0556 or using our Contact form to give our team a chance to contact you directly.

Whether your property is residential or commercial, a cool roof coating application from the pros at Roofing by Hernandez is the best option available in Chicago for eliminating that unfortunate heat island effect we suffer from due to the high number of concrete and steel structures located throughout the city and its suburbs. After we’ve given you all the facts on cool roof coatings, we’ll send out a crew to provide you with an estimate for service which, if you agree to, will be handled as soon as your schedule and ours allows. We do our best to get your project completed within a reasonable amount of time and will do everything we can to adjust our timetable to your satisfaction. We want this to be as easy as possible for you and those who use your property while the work is ongoing.

Our application process ensures your entire rooftop gets its share of the coating liquid and we’re liberal in areas where we see potential for problems with standing water or debris accumulation. These areas, just like the rest of the exposed roofing material, will be completely covered to provide maximum UV protection and solar reflectivity. This will bring your energy bills down due to the abundance of solar radiation reflected off the material back into the atmosphere. The process usually takes less than a day to complete and you’ll quickly see the difference in your cooling costs, so now’s the perfect time to call for your cool roof coating treatment from Roofing by Hernandez (312) 439-0556.

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.

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.

Asphalt Shingles

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!

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.

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.

EPDM Roofing

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.
