Protect Aging Roofs with Duro-Shield™ Coatingsand Materials

As the trend to revive downtown districts by repurposing older buildings into something new and exciting continues to grow, it’s important that building owners and facility managers pay special attention to their rooftop surfaces. With constant exposure to heat, cold, UV radiation, rain, snow, hail and high winds, a roof can be the most vulnerable component of a building’s exterior. However, a roof’s long-term performance can be enhanced — and major roofing problems avoided — with correct design, quality materials, proper installation and workmanship, and comprehensive care.

The cost of routine care is minimal when compared to the cost of repairing, removing and replacing a damaged roof. Duro-Last offers an entire line of products dedicated to helping you enhance the life cycle of this critical asset.
