Life cycle cost analysis and energy modeling confirms the benefits to building owners, specifiers, and contractors of utilizing cool roofing materials. The Duro-Last Roofing System is a great fit for roofing projects in which energy savings is important to the client. At initial ratings of 88% reflectivity, 87% emissivity and 111 solar reflective index, the Duro-Last membrane is a leader in cool roof technology.
In addition the white Duro-Last membrane can help designers and specifiers obtain project credit in the Sustainable Sites Heat Island Effect: Roof category of both LEED and LEED-EB.
There are other ways that a commercial roofing system can positively impact your wallet and the environment. We recently did a series for the Lubbock USGBC chapter called Go Green. Find out more about roof recycling, emissivity, and life cycle cost analysis through the video campaign below.
