Many roofing companies claim that the roofing materials they use are the best in the industry, but how many are willing to back installation with a lifetime labor warranty? Not only is New Image Roofing Atlanta one of fewer than a dozen certified Duro-Last contractors in Georgia—we also back every commercial roof installation with a lifetime labor warranty.
Deciding on the right commercial flat roof material for your facility is not a decision you should take lightly. Depending on the size of your building, a commercial roof membrane may cost anywhere from tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands of dollars. Making sure you’re getting what you pay for upfront is only part of maximizing your investment. You also have to be aware of the associated roof lifecycle costs, including maintenance, repairs, and energy savings, to inform your decision.
While a cheaper, lower-quality commercial roof installation may look like a better value, it rarely is. For large, commercial-scale roof membranes, the associated repair, maintenance, and energy costs associated with a low-quality system are significantly higher than the corresponding costs for higher-quality materials.
If you’re looking to maximize the value of your commercial roof installation from day one, these are the features that set Duro-Last membranes apart from any other roofing material in the industry.
Along with taking longer to install, a conventional roof membrane is roughly cut to fit your roof, resulting in hundreds of seams that have to be welded together, introducing weak spots across your roof.
Duro-Last membranes, on the other hand, are custom cut to your roof’s dimensions, and seams are welded together in a factory-controlled environment. These custom membranes have 85% fewer seams than a conventional system, are faster to install, and are less likely to leak or require maintenance in the long run.
The best commercial flat roof material has to deliver ongoing cost and energy savings at your facility. The Duro-Last white membrane scored highest in retained reflectivity out of all single-ply roof membranes tested by the EPA’s ENERGY STAR Roof Products Program. Retained reflectivity saves you money by reducing cooling costs at your facility, year after year.
How much you save largely depends on energy rates, facility size, and location, but many businesses are also eligible for rebate and incentive programs to start saving money from day one.
If you’re in the market for a commercial roof installation or roof replacement, you already have a rough idea of how much a new roof costs. Don’t you want to be able to put off having to pay for another roof replacement for as long as possible?
With a Duro-Last roof, you can. Duro-Last roof membranes resist fire, chemicals, grease, high winds, and punctures while withstanding temperatures ranging from extreme heat to extreme cold. As a result, you virtually never have to patch or repair a Duro-Last roof, significantly increasing its service life.
Since 1978, more than 1.6 billion square feet of Duro-Last roofing membrane has been installed throughout the United States, and the majority of those systems are still in service. Duro-Last membranes regularly outlast expected lifetimes by five years to a decade or more.
The weakest part of any roofing membrane is where seams are welded together. As a result, the more seams a roof has, the weaker it is, and the more prone it is to problems in the long run. Duro-Last membranes are welded together in a factory-controlled environment and custom fit to your unique roof. With up to 85% reduced seams than conventional roofing membranes, you experience fewer leaks and almost no maintenance requirements in the long run.
