Modified Bitumen

Roofing by Hernandez

Modified Bitumen. As one of the best roofing systems available today, modified bitumen can be seen as a blending of the best attributes of the traditional with the advancements in material science that have taken place over the last 50 years. Using a torch-down application method, modified bitumen roofing is durable, cost-effective, and long-lasting when installed by experienced professionals with a genuine understanding of the material and its idiosyncrasies. Those experts work at Roofing by Hernandez and can work for you with one call to (312) 439-0556. Or, enter your information into our helpful Contact form to get more information on any of our roofing systems or services.

One of the difficulties of utilizing modified bitumen for your flat or low-sloped roofing is it’s notoriously difficult to install correctly – let alone diagnose and repair. The very way it’s applied, by using heat to bond it layer to layer, makes finding the root cause of leaks or cracks tough for even the most experienced roofer, so it’s imperative that you get the best contractor you can to ensure your problem is within the realm of their skill to assess and address. You never have to make that judgement call with Roofing by Hernandez. There is no roofing scenario we can’t handle and our decade of Chicago success proves it.

Being certain that your contractor is reputable, knowledgeable, and transparent means a great deal to getting the best possible modified bitumen repair or replacement work and we know that can be a stressful load to carry for a home or business owner, so we go the extra mile to make roofing easy for you, our customer. We want you to feel great about the work, your experience, and the future of the completed project so that when next you need assistance with anything roof-related you’ll call on us again to serve you. That’s customer lifetime value and we work hard to earn it with every new customer who calls (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.

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.

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.
