Commercial Duro-Last Roof Systems
Building Associates’ commitment to quality and excellence has always meant completing projects we can be proud to sign our names to.
Quality projects start with quality products, and that’s why we are proud to include Duro-Last roofing solutions in our commercial remodeling projects. Like Building Associates, Duro-Last has offered over 30 years of proven performance when it comes to roof membrane systems.
Duro-Last Product Details
- Roof membrane thicknesses include 40, 50, and 60 mil
- Top performance layer is 28 mil over scrim—well ahead of the standards in the industry (not to mention that this puts us ahead of the competition, too)
- Duro-Last stands out as the only product within the industry offering prefabrication of the entire roofing system
- All Duro-Last membranes can be customized using the full line of prefabricated Duro-Last accessories
- Duro-Last single-ply membrane features a backbone of an in-house knit, anti-wicking polyester weft-insertion scrim, and a density of 18 threads per inch. This places it ahead of most competitors and provides the strength and resistance to tears and punctures that is the Duro-Last hallmark.
- Duro-Last offers an unheard-of warranty: 15 years, including consequential damage coverage for their roofing systems at no additional charge.
The Duro-Last prefabricated roofing system comes in neutral, warm, and cool color choices that complement a variety of applications and aesthetic considerations. Available colors include white, light gray, dark gray, tan, and terra cotta. All choices are available as bottom colors on the 50-mil thickness, while 40 and 60 mil thicknesses come in white, tan, light gray, and dark gray.
Many different commercial applications can benefit from Duro-Last Roofing Systems. Warehouses and industrial buildings are common installation sites, as are retail and mixed-use facilities. One special application includes churches, which have unique needs with respect to building shape, multiple buildings per campus, and working around worship schedules.
A different kind of roofing application, hospital use, requires rigorous attention to be paid to preventing contamination of other hospital equipment or space during installation. Because up to 85% of the membrane seaming can be completed in our factory, installation is a breeze, especially with our custom fabricated accessories that are made to work flawlessly with our membranes. This minimizes risk, noise, and inconvenience at the point of installation.
Other roofing options include Duro Fleece Roofing and Duro Tuff Roofing. See the Duro-Last Reference Guide for specifications.

On behalf of the Owen County COAD, I would like to thank you for completing the work so quickly at the tornado-damaged home in Freedom. The COAD worked diligently to meet the needs of the homeowners affected by the tornado this past spring and to find the appropriate contractors to finish the repairs. The COAD was able to quickly procure grant money to pay for the job -- thanks to the detailed documentation that you provided. Having a comprehensive list of materials needed and an easy-to-understand estimate enabled us to get the approval from grantors before their funding was depleted.
I appreciate your attention to detail and your ethical treatment of the processes necessary to complete this repair. You did not hesitate to add this job to your schedule; even though you had larger jobs that would garner more income for Building Associates.
It is so refreshing to receive such outstanding customer service. Being treated as importantly as any client on your schedule, even though this was a small job for you, was truly appreciated. Thank you for all your hard work and for going above and beyond our expectations.

Robert Cox Testimonial
They were wonderful. They were very easy to deal with. When I saw something I didn’t like, they’d come right back out and fix it. It was easy. It wasn’t frustrating or anything. They’re friendly and reasonably priced. We priced several people and they came in lower than anybody else and we got more for the same price.
Joe Carley Testimonial
We appreciated the way Building Associates carefully and thoroughly worked though the design and layout details upfront until we were satisfied. They answered our many questions quickly. We felt the project got better as we continued worked through different configurations and saw the updated CAD drawings. They also gave us detailed estimates, which helped us determine our priorities for where to spend money. Their builders were friendly and responsive. They also limited the number of subcontractors, which made small changes during the build-out easier. We would work with Building Associates again.

Remodeling projects can be overwhelming, and the hope is that one's General Contractor will ensure that the construction runs smoothly and at peak. For our remodeling projects, which were both ambitious and extensive in scope, we had the pleasure to work with Fred Bay of Building Associates. Fred is the consummate professional. He was accurate in his initial assessment of the scale and cost of our projects. He was clear in the record keeping. And, most importantly, he chose and managed excellent subcontractors, from framers and masons, to painters and drywall and floor people.
What we appreciated most about Fred was his willingness to listen to our comments and suggestions, and his ability to react to the resulting changes as the project went on. Quality work takes time to complete, and patience is required when the project is as complex as ours was. We believe we could not have done better than with Fred Bay and Building Associates.
These are the reasons why we will hire Fred for the third and final remodeling phase, which we hope will be done ASAP. Cheers!
