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 hired Cittrix to replace the old, small gutters on our house with new, larger gutters. They were very reasonably priced and the quality of work, service and communication was second to none! Every interaction with their company was … More outstanding, from estimate to job completion. I’ve dealt with many contractors, and the experience with Cittrix was by FAR the best I’ve had with ANY contractor!! They were very honest with what I needed and even addressed a small soffit/fascia issue. I could not recommend them more for any gutter work or full roofing needs. I was so impressed with the overall experience that I will definitely be back when my roof needs replacement! Thanks Cittrix!!
