The Cool Zone membranes manufactured by Duro-Last are effective 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 roof top air conditioning
- Decrease Urban Heat Island effects and related air pollution.
Each commercial roofing project featuring Duro-Last is fully customizable. Contractors 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 take the time to do so.
As Houston’s leading commercial roofing contractors, we value containing the cost and waste of each project by being efficient in the installation. We make sure our membranes are pre-cut, so less time is needed. So, 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 is frequently recognized for its commitment to 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.
