The construction or installation of a new commercial roof on your Chicagoland structure is more than just a good decision – it’s good business. Not only will a new roof add aesthetic value to your commercial property, but it will show your employees and customers that you care about their safety and security. There’s no doubt that a new roof installation can be a pricey choice, but, and this is true, you could actually save money over the lifetime of the roofing. When you add up all of the repair costs and possible damage caused by a potential failure, you see that the once-prohibitive costs of new roofing could be minimal when compared to the negative impacts inherent in pushing an old commercial roof past its prime.

Chicago Roofing Solutions has more than 20 years of experience applying Built-Up Roofing Systems (BUR) to Commercial properties. BURs are also known as “tar & gravel” roofs due to the fact they are made up of layered felts, fabrics, or mats saturated with bitumen, asphalt, or good old-fashioned tar pitch. Gravel is applied to the surface of most BURs as a mineral cap sheet, basically a weatherproof protective coating for the bitumen and underlying layers, that protects the application from wear and tear. BURs are one of the oldest methods for covering low-slope roofs still in use today.
One of the roofing solutions business owners have been increasingly looking to for the last decade, to save both time and money, is Cool Roof Coating Systems. There are a great many types of roof coatings including silicone, butyl rubber, hypalons, neoprenes, acrylics, polyurethane elastomers, and modified asphalts. While every roof is different, and certain situations may call for specific products, Chicago Roofing Solutions’ teams have the experience and expertise to know the best recommendation for every roofing scenario. We work directly with some of the nation’s biggest coating manufacturers and are approved to apply their products and issue their warranties. For cool roof coatings, there’s no one better than Chicago Roofing Solutions.
EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Terpolymer) is an amazingly durable synthetic roofing membrane used worldwide in low-slope structures. The two main ingredients are ethylene and propylene which are substances created from oil and natural gas. EPDM roofing comes in two colors, either black or white, and comes from the factory in a wide range of widths. It is also available in either 45 or 60 millimeters, and can be installed in a few different ways. Chicago Roofing Solutions can install your EPDM roofing by mechanically attaching it, adhering it fully, or ballasting it with all the seams sealed with adhesives or specially-formulated tape. EPDM roofing is extremely resistant to general weathering such as wind, hail, snow, rain, and temperature fluctuations and even offers some protection from the effects of fire.
Many commercial, industrial, institutional, governmental, and multiunit residential entities throughout Chicago and the surrounding suburbs choose fluid applied roofing solutions for their properties. Fluid applied roofing is the process by which a roof is waterproofed through the use of a cold, liquid roof coating. This is an excellent option for those with a functional roof that is experiencing some slight degradation, and is far less invasive and costly than a new roof replacement. Fluid applied roofing membranes are one of the best ways owners can safeguard their roof and concrete decking from water damage and reinforce the overall structural integrity of their building.
Modified bitumen roofing is composed of asphalt and usually reinforced with either polyester or fiberglass making them a blend of the traditional and the modern. The process involves the use of two separate polymers, Styrene Butadiene Styrene (SBS) or Atactic Polypropylene (APP), that modify the membrane giving it greater elasticity and temperature flexibility across a much greater range. As fiberglass is used to fortify the entire system, there is much greater strength and puncture-resistance. Modified bitumen roofing is also installed in various layers to increase the protection it offers from temperature fluctuations, wind uplift, and water damage.

Single-Ply Roofing systems can be broken into two distinct groups: thermosets and thermoplastics. Thermoset membranes are made up of synthetic rubber polymers, usually EPDM, CSPE, and Neoprene. These membranes are perfect for large roof areas because of the manufacturing specifications – they come in large unbroken sheets – which allows for large coverage with minimal seams. Thermoplastic membranes are most commonly single-ply systems made from TPO and PVC, and come with a reinforcement layer that significantly improves strength and stability. These roofing membranes are highly resistant to weathering and UV radiation. While easy to install, at least relatively speaking, you need a qualified, experienced professional contracting firm due to the incompatibility of these membranes with most other single-ply roofing systems. It’s better to rely on Chicago Roofing Solutions to ensure everything goes according to plan. After all, with us, your satisfaction is 100% guaranteed.
The experts at Chicago Roofing Solutions specialize in the installation of TPO and PVC roofs for Commercial clients throughout Chicago and the surrounding suburbs. Both of these options are white in color and highly reflective to mitigate UV radiation. The reinforced nature of these products means they can take abuse and work perfectly in areas where wear and tear is expected. Welded together with hot air, these roofing membranes are ideal for 2nd generation roof-over applications due to their light weight. Our technicians have years of working with TPO and PVC roofing systems, so when you need answers and the best prices call Chicago Roofing Solutions at (312) 313-2851.
