Low Maintenance

Apart from routine maintenance to make sure there are no defects in the roof or debris clogging the drainage system, flat roofs are virtually maintenance free and built to last. Once you have a flat roof installed, you can have peace of mind knowing that you are protected.

Energy Efficiency

We promised to talk about energy efficiency, and here it is! White flat roofs by Duro-Last such as the Duro-Last Cool Zone® Roofing System. Cool roofs provide energy savings as the roof reflects the sun’s visible and invisible light rays and thus reduce heat transfer to the building. Cool roofs also have a high thermal emittance, which is the ability to release a substantial amount of absorbed solar energy. Learn more about our high-performance roofs here. Flat roofs provide the perfect space for solar panel installation, but solar panels aren’t the only way flat roofs flaunt their energy efficiency.
