Sustainable Commercial Roofing – Using Duro-Last Membranes

When deciding to build or renovate a commercial building, it’s important to look at the big picture. How will your building maintain itself over the next 5, 10, 20 years? Most of all, what steps can be taken in the planning process to save as much money down the line as possible? These are things that any facility owner should be considering. At The Duerson Corporation, we exclusively use Duro-Last roofing membranes on all of our projects because we believe in how amazing their products are. When considering what kind of roofing you want for your building, these are some topics you should address.

Style of Roof

If you are purchasing, leasing, or inheriting a commercial building that already has a finished roof, whether it be sloped or flat, that style of roofing should remain the same. However, constructing a new building gives you options to consider which style is best. Generally, sloped roofs are going to have a longer life than that of a flat roof. To offset this, flat roofs are cheaper for parts and installation.

Roofing Material

More important than the style of roofing you have is the type of roofing material that you use. For commercial buildings, sloped roofs are commonly made of sheet metal, shingles, or single-ply membrane. For many of The Duerson Corporations’ sloped roof projects, we use the Duro-Last Duro-Tuff roofing system. This strong, sustainable material is made for sloped roofs, lasts longer than other materials, and also reduces the amount of energy your building will need to stay cool.

Finding A Reliable Commercial Roof Contractor

Finding a contractor who will construct a commercial roof for your business is easy. However, finding a company that will inspect your roof for free, install a brand new roof, repair it when necessary, and keep the interests of the customer first is much more difficult. The Duerson Corporation has been serving businesses around the Midwest for nearly 30 years. Our goal is not simply to sell you a roof, but rather work hand in hand with our clients to achieve the best results possible.
