What is Duro-Last Roofing Material and Why Do I Need It?

November 10, 2020

If you are like 99% of businesses choosing to replace a roof, your reasoning is simple: leaks. A prefabricated roof like Duro-Last will put an end to those concerns. 

Duro-Last is a type of commercial roofing system designed to cover flat or low-sloping roofs. Constructed with a PVC membrane, it is resistant to fire, chemicals, high winds, grease, and punctures. It accommodates the changing temperatures from one extreme to the other and continues to last through many years. Most importantly, up to 85% of Duro-Last seams are completed in a factory-controlled environment, meaning a stronger, more dependendable roof for your employees, products, and customers. 

Benefits of Factory Welded Seams

Duro-Last is the only roof manufacturing company to offer prefabrication of the entire roofing system in a factory-controlled environment. While field-welded seams are constructed with several variables in play, such as inclement weather, dirt, temperature fluctuations, and changes in the installation team, factory-welded seams are joined under cleaner, more consistent conditions. As a result, these higher-integrity seams have a dramatically reduced potential for leaks, resulting in a long-lasting, reliable roof. 

Customized Quality

Duro-Last roofs are manufactured off site, but they are far from mass produced. When you order a roof for your commercial building, it will be manufactured in a factory-controlled environment specifically to meet your needs. We use the dimensions of your roof and create a barrier specific to your building, providing the best fit for your design and structure.

Factory assembly provides precision equipment, trained crew members who specialize in roof construction, and built-in quality control in a weather-resistant environment. The more consistent the process, the higher quality the results. Factory assembled roofs also install more quickly and quietly, meaning less disruption before, during, and after the process.

Energy and Cost Effective

With the ability to reflect a whopping 88 percent of the sun's ultraviolet rays and energy, white Duro-Last membranes can drastically reduce consumption leading to lower energy costs. This makes Duro-Last the ideal cool roof option. With a total solar emittance of up to 95%, the ENERGY STAR® qualified Duro-Last membrane also releases energy and heat efficiently.

Commercial Roofing Industry’s Best Warranty

Duro-Last roofing materials carry the industry’s best warranty. When installed, the company offers a 15-year comprehensive warranty or a 20-year protected warranty. This covers any damage to the roof from factors like pooling rain and defects in the materials, making it an excellent investment.
