Some of the systems we offer:

Built-Up Roofing

Multiple layers of reinforced scrim or felt between moppings of asphalt or coal tar pitch has been a staple in Chicago roofing for well over 100 years. Top coatings of gravel embedded in asphalt or coal tar, asphalt top coat and aluminum coating offer different reflectivity for different situations.

Modified Bitumen Membranes

Allendorfer Roofing commercial flat roofing sample.

This material consists of fiberglass, polyester or a combination of both polyester and fiberglass scrim sheets laid between or set on top of molten modified asphalt and then cooled to form a pliable roof system in rolled form. The (2) types of modified bitumen products offered are APP (actactic polypropelene) and SBS (styrene butyl styrene). These are tough roofing products that are excellent in dealing with the weather extremes in the Chicago area and can handle foot traffic better than most other roof systems. Combine either product with built-up roofing plies and we can offer warranties up to 25 years. Many surfacings are available for these products such as asphalt emulsion, aluminum coat, granulated surfacing in different colors, asphalt and gravel and acrylic coatings. This roof system is one of the most popular roofs being installed in Chicago.

White Membrane Systems

PVC/TPO roof membranes are eco-friendly easy to install roof materials that are reinforced which makes them pliable and puncture resistant. Electronic heat welding of the seams makes this an environmentally friendly process to form a very strong seal. Manufacturers make these products in different thicknesses and colors. These products are Energy Star compliant and meet all Chicago area and federal energy codes.
