Commercial Roofing Gets Environmentally Friendly


Jaco Roofing & Construction, Inc. provides Duro-Last roofing systems. You can celebrate these systems for their long-life span, quick installation, and great warranties. Not to mention, they are notorious for being environmentally friendly! Here are just a few ways your commercial roof could be environmentally friendly with the help of Jaco Roofing & Construction, Inc..

Energy Efficiency

The Cool Zone membranes — manufactured by Duro-Last — cool roofs in every climate. That means you can expect a 40% reduction in energy consumption during the hot months in Houston. But, there are even more reasons to get behind the energy efficiency of Cool Roofs, as they can:

  • Reduce heat loss during winter and heat gain during summer.
  • Increase the efficiency of rooftop air conditioning.
  • Decrease Urban Heat Island effects and related air pollution.

Waste Reduction

Commercial roofing projects withDuro-Last allow commercial roofing contractors to fully customize each project. Contractors only order the exact material needed for the job. Without the need for a collection of raw materials, much less waste is sent to the Houston landfills.

To compare, asphalt shingle roofing projects generate eleven million tons of waste. While you can recycle the shingles, many commercial roofing companies don’t.

As Houston’s leading commercial roofing contractors, we value containing the cost and waste of each project through efficiency. We make sure our membranes are pre-cut, so we can finish projects more quickly. In other words, we aren’t just saving waste, we’re saving time, too!


Duro-last is third-party verified as sustainable, durable and high performing — one of only two manufacturers to earn NSF/ANSI 347 Platinum certification. Duro-last earned a reputation as a leader in recycling and waste diversion. They even collect left-over yarn in a vacuuming system during the manufacturing process for use in carpet padding, pillows, and mattress pads.
