Find out about the many benefits of choosing the Duro-Last Roofing System!
Proven Track Record
Since its creation in 1978, Duro-Last Roofing, Inc. has had over one billion square feet of roofing system installed throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico. Many of Duro-Last’s original roofs still remain intact and continue to perform exceptionally well.
The Duro-Last vinyl roof membrane is a proprietary thermoplastic formulation consisting of PVC resins, plasticizers, stabilizers, biocides, flame retardants and U.V. absorbents. A weft-insertion knitted scrim that is laminated between two layers of PVC film gives the membrane its strength and durability. The Duro-Last membrane is available in white, tan, gray, or dark gray. Duro-Last has met or exceeded all major fire and wind code requirements, and regional approvals as necessary throughout the country. These certifications reinforce Duro-Last's leadership in providing the consistent, watertight integrity that building owners expect.
Each Duro-Last project is prefabricated to fit every roof precisely. By performing 80-85% of membrane seaming in their controlled factory environment, Duro-Last reduces the potential for rooftop installation errors and leaks. Also, custom fabricated stacks and curb flashings eliminated the majority of on-site work at the most critical areas of the roof – transitions and penetrations.
With a Duro-Last roofing system, high winds, snow and other severe weather are not detrimental to the performance of the system. Once installed, a Duro-Last roof is watertight and virtually maintenance free. The Duro-Last roofing system is also fire retardant, and resistant to chemicals, high winds, grease and punctures.
Business As Usual
Installation is quiet and safe without loud machinery, hazardous materials, noxious fumes, hot tar or mess. A new Duro-Last roofing system can often be installed over an existing roof without an expensive tear-off, virtually eliminating debris that could disrupt building activities or damage sensitive equipment.
The Duro-Last white membrane is highly-reflective throughout its life span on the roof, saving significant energy and money for building owners all over North America.
