What was the old roof?
The old roof was smooth modified-bitumen that had been coated heavily multiple times but still leaked badly. The low-slope roof has low parapets and most of the substrate was wet requiring a tear-off. The deck had an average fastener withdraw pull-test strength of 450 LB.
What is the new roof?
The new roof is Duro-Last 50 mil reinforced white PVC over polyiso insulation. The roofing membrane is mechanically attached directly to the roof deck ensuring the most reliable resistance to high-winds. Seams are welded with the safety of hot air and are permanent unlike taped seams. The Duro-Last Basic Warranty covers ponding water and has no required maintenance reporting. Duro-Last is Energy Star® rated and highly- resistant to the expansion & contraction that degrade black roofs. No TPO is used to make Duro-Last, only PVC that has been proven over the last 40 yrs.
