Duro-Last® Sustainable Commercial Roofs
Reduce, Recycle, Reimagine
Sustainability has been a part of the Duro-Last culture for more than 20 years. Our founder, John R. Burt, came up with the idea of reimagining old PVC roofs and manufacturing excess into resilient flooring, walkway pads and concrete expansion joints. To date, we have recycled more than 80 million pounds of PVC material through our sustainable manufacturing operations and Recycle Your Roof program.
We have continued our leadership in sustainability as the first manufacturer to publish a product-specific Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for single-ply PVC roofing membranes.
In addition to all of our internal processes that make Duro-Last a more sustainable company, we have also worked hard to obtain third-party certifications to verify the sustainability of our products. This makes Duro-Last a great option for environmentally conscious building projects.
Certifications Duro-Last has achieved include:
NSF/ANSI 347 – With a focus on product design, product manufacturing, membrane durability, corporate governance, and innovation, this standard represents our commitment to manufacturing sustainable products through sustainable practices.
