White Membrane Roofing Systems

More and more builders are turning to white membrane roof systems to reduce energy costs. In Illinois, Chicago’s former Mayor Daley has promoted the use of white roofs by supporting grant programs and turning to the press — encouraging building owners to save money, improve the environment and contribute to a healthy city.

A-1 Roofing Co. has played a part in helping Chicago go green. Our roofing professionals install, maintain and repair white membrane roof systems on Commercial, industrial, and Multi-family buildings throughout the greater Chicago area.

White membrane roof systems are known for being easily installed without disruption to daily operations. They are leak-proof and virtually maintenance free. Owing to technological advances, they can reduce cooling costs for buildings with A/C units, and help reduce temperatures on buildings with no cooling units.

White coatings can be applied to nearly any roofing surface, including metal roofs, single-ply rubber roofs and modified bitumen roofs. At A-1 Roofing Co., our roofing experts can talk with you about which type of white roofing — and which roofing materials — are best for your needs, whether they are TPO, EPDM, PVC, high reflectivity modified bitumen, Elvaloy or an elastomeric coating.

At A-1 Roofing Co., we are approved applicators of white membrane roof systems from most leading manufacturers:

  • Johns Manville
  • GAF
  • Firestone
  • Sika-Sarnafil
  • Carlisle
  • Sarnafil
  • Flex

How Long Will My Roof Last?

Our customers often wonder how long their membrane roofing systems will last. While we offer warranties up to 30 years, the longevity of a membrane roof actually depends on several factors: climate and environmental conditions, proper building and roof system design, material quality and suitability, proper application and regular maintenance.

At A-1 Roofing Co., our goal is to install lasting roofs that reduce our customers’ long-term costs. To do this, we pay attention to the details. Our roofs are marked by quality workmanship throughout installation, and we also offer regular maintenance to help preserve your roofing system.
