    What are Cool Roofs?

    Cool roofs are roofing systems designed to reflect sunlight and absorb less heat compared to traditional roofs. This translates to cooler building interiors and reduced reliance on air conditioning, ultimately leading to significant energy cost savings.

    Why Choose Duro-Last Cool Roofs?

    Duro-Last is a leading manufacturer of exceptional cool roof membranes. Their flagship white PVC membrane reflects up to 88% of the sun’s rays and boasts a thermal emittance rate of up to 87%

    Here are some of the key benefits of Duro-Last cool roofs:

    • Energy Efficiency: Studies by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have shown that cool roofs can lower a building’s energy use for cooling by 10-30%, leading to substantial cost savings over the lifetime of the roof.
    • Reduced Urban Heat Island Effect: Cool roofs help combat the urban heat island effect, a phenomenon where cities experience higher temperatures due to the abundance of heat-absorbing surfaces. By reflecting sunlight, Duro-Last cool roofs contribute to a cooler overall environment in urban areas. This not only benefits building owners with lower energy costs but also improves air quality and public health in cities.
    • Durability and Longevity: Duro-Last membranes are known for their exceptional durability and long lifespan. They are manufactured with high-quality materials that can withstand harsh weather conditions, including extreme temperatures, UV radiation, and impacts. 
    • Lightweight and Versatile: Duro-Last membranes are lightweight, making them ideal for a variety of roof structures, including those that may not be able to support the weight of heavier roofing materials. They can also be installed over existing roofs, minimizing disruption to your business operations and saving on tear-off costs. This versatility makes Duro-Last cool roofs a suitable option for a wide range of commercial and industrial buildings.
