Duro-Last roofing system features sustainability

In the commercial roofing industry, reflectivity has been the dominant discussion point for several years.

But what does sustainability really mean for building owners, facility managers, contractors, architects and other specifiers? It means that the design, construction, maintenance, life-cycle impact, adaptive re-use, destruction, and recycling of roofing components must help meet the long-term environmental standards demanded by today's high-performance buildings.

Today, these trends are creating increased demand for a new class of high-performance roofing systems that can satisfy traditional performance criteria – installed cost, performance and longevity – as well as newer criteria – preservation of the environment, energy efficiency and life-cycle costs.

To be considered “sustainable,” a roofing system must meet the Five E's of high-performance roofing: Energy, Environment, Endurance, Economics, and Engineering. In each of these areas, the Duro-Last Cool Zone roofing system leads the commercial roofing industry.
