new built up roofs in Lake County, IL

When it comes to commercial buildings, few elements are as critical as the roof. That’s why at Cittrix Roofing we specialize in providing commercial roofing that’s long-lasting, reasonably priced, and extremely reliable.

Built-up roofing, which is also known as gravel or asphalt roofing, has one of the most solid reputations in the commercial roofing market.

This style of roof was first used in the 1870s and has undergone considerable innovation since then. Office buildings, educational institutions, hospitals, and versatile structures among others all depend on built-up roofing to provide protection and security.

Although built-up roofing has been common for some time, it is still a complicated process that requires finesse. Our roofers at Cittrix Roofing have the skills, training, tools, and expertise necessary to complete a BUR installation that will help to protect your building against damages, severe weather conditions, fire, and other events which might have an adverse impact on your structure.

Built-Up Roofing Advantages

For nearly 150 years, built-up roofs have been the top of the line in reliable commercial roofing options. They are exceptionally durable and resistant to fire, high winds, and severe weather. Of course, their reliability depends a great deal on how thorough and high quality the installation of the roof was. The main advantages to a BUR roof are as follows:

  • Seamless and Waterproof – The continuous solid surface does not require seams, which seals off the areas that are most likely to leak over time.
  • UV Ray reflection – provides protection from ultra-violet rays.
  • Low maintenance – There is very minimal upkeep and maintenance needed after it is installed.

BUR Roof Costs

On average, you’ll typically find a Built-Up roof to cost around $5.00 to $9.00 per square foot in to install on a commercial building. Costs can vary depending on demand, location, and materials actually used.

    We are extremely happy with the work, product quality, and installation of our new roof, gutters, and fascia that we received from Cittrix. Our only disappointment was with the sales person Eric Bergland. He was rude, unprofessional and … More breached contract privacy. We recommend Cittrix for roofing work, however, stay away from Eric Bergland. Please request to deal with the owner Dan.

    Top-notch service! They quoted my home siding wash about 6 months ago, then last month they asked me about time that was convenient to me, then they gave me an arrival time, and they did an excellent job. Very friendly and hardworking service … More crew explained everything and showed me what and how they do. Then the business followed up about quality and my satisfaction. Highly recommend!
    Update (September 2022):
    This time I hired them for my garage roof repair, and they did a great job the SAME DAY AND FOR LOWEST PRICE THAT ALL OTHERS. Super service!

    Great experience. We moved to Libertyville from the east coast and needed a roof inspection and quote from afar. Dan came over right away (that afternoon I believe) and quickly provided an inspection with photos + a quote. I quoted Cittrix … More out against two other companies - they were a tiny bit higher than one, but that company didn't bother to come out and inspect the roof and wasn't very responsive. Another company offered a higher quote but didn't actually see or inspect the roof. The installation started within a week or so of my signing the contract, and it was completed on time and to my satisfaction. Three skylights were also replaced and everything looks great.
