When you install a custom-prefabricated Duro-Last Roofing System, up to 85% of the seams are 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 — and adds the advantages of a faster, quieter and easier installation, with less maintenance and reliable roof performance for years to come.
Experience the "Prefab 4" with Duro-Last:
Custom prefabricated accessories and details from both, Duro-Last and our EXCEPTIONAL® Metals division, offer the perks of factory prefabrication to roofs installed with any Duro-Last membrane – even roll goods.
Custom prefabricated stack and curb flashings reduce rooftop labor on the most critical roof areas — penetrations and transitions. Many of these accessories, including metal scuppers and collector boxes, come with the membrane already welded to it. Flashings for difficult areas like corners and parapet wall transitions come pre-welded as well.
The benefit of these products is twofold: First, having the welding completed in our factory-controlled environment provides a better-looking finished product along with the necessary watertight integrity. Second, rooftop labor is greatly reduced, getting roofing crews off the roof faster and on to the next job.
Less on-site seaming is required by contractors, which minimizes problems and enables them to get the job done more efficiently.
For contractors, this means better time management for installation crews, getting them off one roof project and on to the next quickly. For facility owners and managers, this means an efficient roof application that minimizes building disruption.
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 prefabricated to achieve desired visual results.
