Why Choose a Flat Roof for Industrial and Commercial Buildings

When it comes to choosing the style of roof that your new industrial or commercial building will have, many businesses have difficulties deciding between a pitched or a flat roof. The Duerson Corporation, which is an exclusive installer of Duro-Last roofing, offers our advice as to why flat-roofing is a better option, and how to decide.

Flat Roofing is Easy to Install

One of the best reasons to choose a flat roof with the Duro-Last protective membrane is that it is fast and easy to install. The roofing installers at the Duerson Corporation use unique techniques to install and repair your flat roof that uses no loud machinery, hot tar or create any mess. The installation is often significantly faster to complete compared to a pitched roof and other flat roofing options, and the Duro-Last membrane is one of the best on the planet.

Flat Roofs Provide a Place for Mechanics

Another great reason to choose a flat roof over a pitched roof is because the flat roof provides a place to install the mechanics for your building. HVAC systems, generators and so on can all be placed on the roof, giving more space to the exterior of your building. Not only that, but it can also help beautify the landscaping of your building and make it have more “curb appeal.”

Duro-Last is the World’s Best Roof®

Duro-Last, which is based out of Saginaw, Michigan but has a manufacturing plant right here in Sigourney, Iowa, has long boasted the title of being the “World’s Best Roof.” What makes Duro-Last such a great option for your flat roof installation? Here are just a few reasons:

Durability and Performance

First of all, Duro-Last membranes are extremely durable and built to sustain years of weather, wind and water. The Duro-Last roofing system is resistant to fire, chemicals, grease, high winds and punctures, and easily accommodates wide temperature extremes.

Energy Efficient

Duro-Last roofs are also extremely energy efficient. By reflecting up to 88% of the sun’s energy, their white roofing systems can greatly reduce energy costs. Another important measurement of membrane performance is emittance—the percentage of absorbed energy that a material can radiate away. The Duro-Last roof system’s total emittance is measured at 95%.

Easy Roof Maintenance and Flat Roof Repair

Another great reason to go with a Duro-Last roof with the Duerson corporation is how easy roof maintenance and repair is on a flat roof. Oftentimes, if a leak is found early enough, the spot can be patched, much like a hole in your jeans. This type of process would not be an option with a pitched roof, and it makes the repair process much easier. If you notice a leak in your Duro-Last flat roof, you can contact us for a flat roof leak repair.
