Why Choose a PVC Commercial Roof?

When it comes to minimizing energy costs and maximizing the safety of your commercial building, the type of roof that you have installed makes all the difference. If you still have a gravel or tar roof installed on your building, it’s time for you to make the investment in a polyvinyl chloride (PVC) commercial roof. If you’ve been considering making the move to a PVC roof but restrain yourself from doing it, we would like to layout the benefits of having a Duro-Last PVC commercial roof.

PVC Durability

One of the main reasons that PVC roofing has become so popular among commercial buildings is the durability features of it. The recommended breaking point on commercial roofs for pounds per inch is at 200 PPI. Our Duro-Last PVC roofing has a breaking point at 300 PPI, over 50% stronger than the recommended weight capacity. With that, all of our Duro-Last products are resistant to fires, grease, high winds, and punctures.

Energy Costs

Having a tar or gravel rooftop is a burden to the the energy bill. As the black, non-reflective surface absorbs the sun’s rays, the building heats up and the air conditioning unit has to run constantly to keep the building cool. Duro-Last’s white membrane is rated the highest reflective single-ply membrane by the EPA’s Energy Star Roof Products program. That is why we only use Duro-Last products for all of our roofing projects throughout the Midwest. Are you not a fan of having the white membrane color? Don’t worry, we have plenty of color roof options available!

Roof Warranty Coverage

Duro-Last has a standard and comprehensive 15-year warranty. This warranty is also transferable, has no exclusions for ponding water, and provides coverage against damages that occur from a defective Duro-Last product or installation. If interested, Duro-Last and the Duerson Corporation also offer 20-year warranties.
