Duro-Last Roofing, Inc.
Duro-Last began in 1978 with the simple need to find a long term roofing system that worked. Existing roofing systems presented a common problem - they required ongoing maintenance and continual expense, with no long-term solution in sight.
Our Founder, John R. Burt, used his experience in fabricating pool liners to develop a remarkable new roofing membrane. Two years of additional testing resulted in the proprietary membrane formula still in use today.
Investigation of the roofing industry proved that the majority of roofing system failures then (and still today) are not due to the roofing system assembly itself but to workmanship on-site. To solve this problem we brought our roofing system "in-house" developing custom prefabrication methods and specialized equipment that allows us to complete nearly 100% of the difficult roof details and up to 85% of field seams under ideal factory controlled conditions. The result is lower on-site labor costs and better installation quality.
Duro-Last is now the world's largest manufacturer of prefabricated roofing systems. The Duro-Last Roofing System, contractor installation team, customer service and warranty all set the quality standards for the roofing industry.
Duro-Last Is The Perfect Fit For Your Building
CUSTOM PREFABRICATED FOR EVERY BUILDING
Every Duro-Last project is prefabricated to fit every building roof precisely. By performing 80-85% of membrane seaming in our controlled factory environment, Duro-Last reduces the potential for rooftop installation errors and leaks that can occur with other systems. Also, custom fabricated stacks and curb flashings eliminate nearly 100% of rooftop labor from the most critical roof areas - transitions and changes of plane. The Duro-Last roofing system is perfect for any new or retrofit project, on building with flat roofs or low-sloped roofs.
The Duro-Last single-ply roofing system is resistant to fire, chemicals, grease, high winds and punctures, and easily accommodates wide temperature extremes. Duro-Last's custom flashing resists ponding water and helps solve roof problems before they happen. Once installed, a Duro-Last roof is watertight and virtually maintenance-free.
INSTALLED WITHOUT DISRUPTING BUILDING OPERATIONS
Installation is quiet and safe, without loud machinery, hazardous materials, noxious fumes, hot tar, or mess. A new Duro-Last single-ply roof 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.
Duro-Last is proud to be a charter partner in the EPA ENERGY STAR® Roof Products Program. Duro-Last is also a charter member of the Cool Roof Rating Council and a member of the US Green Building Council. Our white cool roof membrane starts out with 87% reflectivity and is highly-reflective throughout its life span on the roof, saving significant energy and money for building owners and managers all over North America.

Duro-Last protects building with a comprehensive 15-year No Dollar Limit (NDL) warranty that clearly states our coverage of consequential damages that result from defects in the Duro-Last material and/or installation workmanship. Duro-Last also has 20-year warranties available.
