Emergency Roofing Services

Emergency Roofing Services

Leaks, storm damage, and other roofing issues can slow or close your facility, costing you valuable time, causing damage, and possibly closing your location. We offer dedicated 24/7 emergency commercial, industrial, and institutional roofing services to fix anything from a minor leak to major damage. Whether we send a single technician or a full crew, we will thoroughly inspect your roof and provide warrantied, certified repairs to get you up and running again.

Low Slope Roofing Services

Low Slope Roofing Services

Low slope roofs (those with a  pitch less than 14°, per the National Roofing Contractor’s Association) are common in the Chicago area and require  specific skills  for installation and maintenance as they can’t shed water as quickly as  more steeply sloped roofs can. We offer comprehensive low-slope roofing services, from  demolition and installation  to repair and maintenance.

We can install and repair low-slope roofing using a variety of  materials, including single ply, modified bitumen, built-up, metal, and liquid membranes. As part of our full-service package, we install insulation and cover boards to meet local thermal and energy codes. A variety of roof coatings, including acrylic, emulsion, reflective, and aluminum, are available for added durability, waterproofing, and corrosion resistance.

Steep Slope Roofing Services

Steep Slope Roofing Services

Steep slope roofs (those with grades from  14° and up) present a different set of challenges, which we are well prepared to handle. From installation or replacement to repair and maintenance, our expert team is skilled at roofing with slate, wood shakes, and shingles. We are also certified Crown installers for Ludowici clay tile. Our thorough approach and full-service capabilities also include ensuring appropriate underlayment and sheet metal work as needed for a complete roofing system. We can repair your roof decks too, and work with materials such as steel, gypsum, tectum, wood, and concrete.

Architectural Sheet Metal Fabrication Services

Architectural Sheet Metal Fabrication Services

After over a century of offering roofing services to Chicagoland, we know that every roof is unique and stock materials aren’t always the best fit. Our expertise includes sheet metal fabrication to match historic and design details  that will complement your roof installation or repair.  We offer  ES-1 compliant fabrication with a variety of metals including copper, stainless steel, galvanized, iron, and pre-finished metal in a range of colors.  Our services  include:

  • Fabrication and installation of gutter and downspout systems
  • Ornamental work and architectural elements
  • Custom metalwork including soffit, copings, drip edge, counter flashing, valley metal, fascia, vents, louvers, skylights, stairs, ladders, spires, scuppers, and conductor heads

Green Roofing Services

Green Roofing Services

With their many benefits that include improved stormwater management, air quality, aesthetics, and urban heat reduction, green roofing is a fast-growing approach to commercial and industrial roofing. We offer a full range of green roofing services, for both extensive (shallow soil) and intensive (deep soil) installations. Green roofing systems can be modular or monolithic, and consist of appropriate membranes, root barriers, insulation, and filtering fabric with optional sprinkler systems. We also employ electronic field vector mapping (EFVM) systems for leak detection.

Roof Maintenance Services

Roof Maintenance ServicesEven the best roof will eventually fail or suffer damage, so we offer comprehensive maintenance and service plans available on an annual, semi-annual, or per-project basis. We start with a thorough inspection of every part of your roof including drains, gutters, and flashing. Basic repairs and maintenance items performed include:

  • Cleaning debris and clearing drains
  • Resealing joints
  • Securing loose flashing and drain bolts
  • Repairing membranes
  • Touching up coatings

We provide you with a full, written report with photos showing  repairs and any concerns we’ve noted. Of course, we will discuss the entire process with you, along with any issues discovered. As with any repairs we provide, they are performed to meet manufacturer’s specifications, so  existing manufacturer guarantees are honored.

At Knickerbocker Roofing, we offer full-service commercial roofing installation, repair, maintenance, and support with over a century of expertise, and backed by a two-year contractor’s guarantee and  15+ year manufacturer warranties. Contact us today for more information or request a quote for your roofing project.
