Most leaks in a roof are caused by imperfect seams, curb flashings and poor workmanship. The more field seams that are used to install a roof, the greater the potential for leaks in the future.
When we install a Duro-Last prefabricated roof, over 85% of the seams can be completed in a factory-controlled environment before the roofing system is delivered to the job site. By eliminating most of the on-site seaming, Duro-Last dramatically reduces the potential for leaks. Also, this advantage makes installation faster, quieter and easier. Most importantly, there is less of an impact on daily business operations while a new roof is being installed. Our customers find that with a Duro-Last roof installed by Umbrella Roofing Systems, Inc., they receive reliable, long-term performance, with virtually maintenance-free durability.
To ensure high quality, Duro-Last also precision-fabricates rooftop accessories, such as curb flashings, scuppers and drains, to address the most critical areas on your roof. This is unique in the industry. This prefabrication helps to reduce rooftop installation errors that can occur with most other membrane systems.
Prefabrication also appeals to engineers and architects who would like to address a particular structural or aesthetic design problem. Panel sizes, shapes and colors can be pre-planned and custom-fabricated to achieve desired visual results.
Since its inception in 1978, The Duro-Last roofing system has evolved into the “World’s Best Roof,” and today is the world’s largest manufacturer of prefabricated, single-ply roofing systems. Umbrella Roofing Systems, Inc. has been partnered with Duro-Last since 1992.
