What was the old roof?

The old roof was granular modified-bitumen that had started leaking causing some of the wood decking to begin rotting and concern for electrical materials inventory.  The low-slope roof has parapets and scuppers which create areas of ponding water.  The roof substrate was damp but not wet.  The deck had an average fastener withdraw pull-test strength of 325 LB.

What is the new roof?

The new roof is Duro-Last 40 mil pre-fabricated reinforced white PVC that eliminates up to 85% of on-site welding. The roofing membrane is mechanically attached through the old roofing material directly to the roof deck saving the expense of tear-off & new insulation and 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 Supreme Warranty covers any consequential damage from leaks and has no required maintenance. 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.
