Cool roofing and reflectivity has been an increasingly important factor in commercial roofing, and the Duro-Last® Cool Zone® roofing system has set the standard for single-ply roof reflectivity and the resulting savings in energy usage. Duro-Last commercial roofing installed by Alternative Roofing Systems is setting the bar for terms like sustainability, cool roofs and cool roofing.
But what do terms like sustainability and cool roofing really mean to building owners, facility managers, contractors, architects, and others? It means that the design, construction, maintenance, life-cycle impact, adaptive re-use, destruction, and recycling of roofing components must help to meet the short and long-term environmental standards in high demand by today’s high-performance buildings.
To be considered “sustainable,” a roofing system needs to meet the Five E’s of high-performance roofing: Energy, Environment, Endurance, Economics, and Engineering. In each of these important areas, the Duro-Last Cool Zone roofing system leads the commercial roofing industry. We invite you to learn more about the Five E’s and how the Duro-Last Cool Zone roofing system delivers on the multiple demands of high-performance roofing.
