When building appearance is important, we can present
several additional options for single-ply roofing that fall within the Designer
Series of Duro-Last. This is still the same great single-ply membrane that you
know and love but in 3 unique options. These patterns have become a popular
solution for a variety of applications
The Shingle-Ply membrane comes in both tan and gray, then there is Rock-Ply all in 50 mil roll goods. Each pattern has a special polymer coating to help protect the printed finish. To complete the project, the accessories are custom-fabricated and match the pattern.

the crews clean up and head out, you are left with the roof system and your
warranty. We encourage you to read the warranty AND the fine print. Make sure
you ask questions and understand what is stated within.
offers several warranty options for both 15-year and 20-year terms as well as
specific warranties for several circumstances.
Here is a quick outline of the 15-year warranty:
LABOR AND MATERIALS INCLUDED
On a Duro-Last roof (for warranty related repairs or replacement), you pay nothing for materials or labor.
Duro-Last’s standard 15-year
labor and material warranty contains no exclusions for ponding water.
CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES COVERAGE
Our standard warranty includes coverage
for consequential damages that result from defects in the Duro-Last material
The standard Duro-Last warranty
is transferable at no charge to a new building owner.
ISSUED BY THE MANUFACTURER
Duro-Last warranties come
straight from the manufacturer that has produced over a billion square feet of
roofing membrane since 1978. These warranties are in addition to any warranty
your roofing contractor may provide.
There is no additional charge
for your Duro-Last standard warranty. That means you get the industry’s best
rooftop protection for FREE.
NO MAINTENANCE PROGRAM REQUIRED
Although regular common-sense maintenance can extend the life of your roof, Duro-Last does not require you to invest in a roof maintenance program (often stipulated by other manufacturers) for your warranty to be in effect for the entire 15-year period.
Give All Weather Systems a call, we can review the various options of warranties and decide what would make the most sense for you. (740) 323-3174
Posted in Uncategorized | Comments Off on THE WARRANTY & WHY IT’S IMPORTANT
From the past 3 decades of roofing, along with our good ole
science lesson from high school we know that expansion and contraction can
occur within certain materials due to changes in temperature. On numerous
occasions, we have witness roof membranes ballooning or trampolining as a
When a roofing contractor chooses not to take a roof
membrane up and over the parapet walls, they are exponentially increasing the
chances of roofing issues as the weather changes. Designing the roof system so
that the edge of the roof membrane meets the bottom of a parapet wall or ledge
leaves the roof potentially exposed to leaks.
A few weeks ago, we discussed how to choose between
contractors when comparing quotes. This is just one more area to note when
reviewing the quotes. Is the contractor offering you a proposal that is what’s
best for your unique roof situation?
All Weather Systems has built a fantastic reputation over
the past 30 years because we believe in doing what’s right…every time. Call to
learn more about how we do business.
If you are familiar with single-ply roofing systems, then
you’ve likely heard the different thickness such as 40 mil, 50 mil, 60 mil
etc. Duro-Last wanted to take a closer
look into the thickness of these membranes and how they are constructed from
manufacturer to manufacturer.
As shown in the image above, there are 3 layers to a typical
single-ply roof system. The top layer is called the “Performance Layer” because
its what takes the beating from the sun, foot traffic, third party damage.
Duro-Last examined 12 other membranes to note how thick
their performance layer was, in comparison with Duro-Last 50 mil membrane.
Not even the 60 mil membranes from our competitors were able
to surpass the 28-mil top layer of the Duro-Last membrane. That’s interesting
right? The top layer is the first line of defense, but the other manufacturers
choose to build their layer with the bulk of their thickness below the
scrim. We cannot say for sure why, but
the ASTM 4434 only requires 16 mil
above the scrim. Duro-Last far surpasses this minimum requirement to provide
thickness where it truly counts.
Before you choose the roof system based on the thickness, be
sure you know the makeup of the roof membrane.
It may not be what it seems.
We’d be happy to speak with you at length about these
differences, give us a call. (740) 323-3174
All the snow and ice has melted, and the rain is moving in. Winter
has a way of making a tiny roof problem a large roof problem. If you haven’t
yet, its imperative to perform an inspection on your roof. You can head off a
lot of problems, wasted downtime and potential damage to your equipment, stock,
All Weather Systems Inc., offers thorough roof inspections.
We not only walk the roof, but we search for any areas that could potentially
cause problems so that you are aware long before it happens.
Just remember, keeping up with repairs decreases the
likelihood of a full roof tear off when the roof reaches the end of its life

have more freedom to customize their fall protection plan under the
new OSHA 1910 Walking-Working Surfaces Standard that went into effect
in January. But they need to take great care: the flexibility it affords
The new rule redefines safe distances from the roof edge and the degree of protection required within specified footage. OSHA has also recognized other forms of fall protection such as fall restraint and arrest systems and included them as suitable solutions in the new standards. There’s also the nature of the job to consider: “temporary and infrequent tasks” conducted further from the edge require less stringent protection. Though these are only two stipulations in the update, they give employers and building owners the ability to choose between various fall protection equipment. This puts the onus on a decision maker who might not be aware of the pros and cons of safety equipment in certain scenarios. Read the rest of the blog…
There is much to know and to consider as a building owner. All Weather Systems can perform a rooftop safety assessment to help. We can walk your roof, point out hazards and assemble a plan and a correlating estimate. Call today (740) 323-3174 and ask for Mike!
