Since 1978, Duro-Last roofing systems have become known as “The World’s Best Roof.” Over thirty years later and more than a billion square feet installed, their unique, single-ply membrane exceeds industry standards for performance and durability. Backed by the industry’s best warranties, it is the premier choice for commercial, industrial, and institutional buildings.
Each Duro-Last project we install is prefabricated to fit every roof precisely. By performing 80-85% of membrane seaming in a controlled factory environment, on-site work is reduced from the most critical areas of the roof, such as stacks and curb flashings.
Many manufacturers promote the idea that “thicker” is better.” However, the truth is that roofing system performance is a balance between film formulation, membrane thickness, and reinforcement. As described in the illustration, Duro-Last material is a) designed with a more substantial top layer as well as b) a weft-inserted scrim layer to provide superior protection and reinforcement. Additionally, c) the membrane material is white from top to bottom increases energy efficiency. Single-ply roofing systems should be chosen by performance rather than membrane thickness alone.
What does it mean for a roofing system to be “sustainable?” It means the material, performance, and production of the components are environmentally-concious and energy efficient. In turn, these benefits prevent costly repairs. Not only does the Duro-Last CoolZone® roofing system reflect unwanted heat, it’s closed-loop manufacturing process recycles production scrap and reduces waste.

Loose seams, cracks, leaking, and ice build-up are a few ways metal roofs can start racking up maintenance costs. Wouldn’t it be great if, instead of costly repairs or entire roof replacements, a new roofing system could be installed right over top the old one? Custom-fabricated from the factory, the Duro-Shield Metal Retrofit is the cost-effective solution to your worn-out metal roof.
