Duro-Last® Roofing Information
Bourdeau Contracting LLC is a certified installer of Duro-Last® roofing systems in St Charles MO, as well as St. Louis, Kansas City and the surrounding areas. Duro-Last® began in 1978 with the simple need to find a roofing system that worked. Existing roofing systems presented a common problem - they required ongoing maintenance and continual expense, with no long-term solution in sight. The company's founder John R. Burt, used his experience in fabricating pool liners to develop a remarkable new commercial roofing membrane. Two years of additional testing resulted in the proprietary membrane formula still in use today, after more than 30 years.
Why Is Duro-Last® Roofing Better Than Other Systems?
The Duro-Last® vinyl roof membrane is a proprietary thermoplastic formulation consisting of PVC resins, plasticizers, stabilizers, biocides, flame retardants and U.V. absorbents. A weft-insertion knitted scrim that is laminated between two layers of PVC film gives the membrane its strength and durability. The Duro-Last® single-ply membrane is available in white, gray, dark gray, tan, or terra cotta.
Their flexible roof membrane is easily prefabricated into deck sheets up to 2,500 square feet in size, as well as custom-made parapet, stack, and curb flashings that eliminate most labor from critical roof areas – transitions and changes of plane. This allows us to cover more of the roofing area, without having to make cuts or adjustments to the material. Prefabrication provides building owners peace-of-mind regarding the watertight security of the roof installation.
CoolZone® Roofing System
In addition to our standard high quality membrane, Bourdeau Contracting LLC offers the Duro-Last® CoolZone® roofing system. What does sustainability and cool roofing really mean for building owners? It means that the design, construction, maintenance, life-cycle impact, adaptive re-use, destruction, and recycling of roofing components must help meet the long-term environmental standards demanded by today's high-performance buildings. Using a CoolZone® roof on your commercial business can significantly reduce cooling costs of your business, typically paying for itself within the first few years.
