CRCA is a local trade association of roofing and waterproofing
contractors in the greater Chicagoland area. Contractors, manufacturers, distributors, manufacturers representatives
and consultants are members of CRCA, where they come together
to tackle issues important to the roofing industry.
From single ply to built up, modified bitumen and other roof membranes covered with reflective surfaces, gravel - ballast, or complete garden roofing systems, and photovoltaics, CRCA Members provide and service them all.
Read CRCA Today, the Magazine of Roofing and Waterproofing in Chicago and Beyond, to keep up to date.
CRCA Member Contractors are the best choice, the one call, one
responsibility for all rooftops including vegetative. When we manage the process, from the deck up, the roof gets
done right, and priced competitively. We are the single source for the building owner and manager to turn to at
installation, then for the lifetime of the roof system. Watch CRC's Garden Roofing Video
