Duro-Last®

After working as a lumberjack, carpenter, tool and die maker and soldier, among other jobs, John R. Burt got into the swimming pool business. After a liner he had purchased failed, he recognized the importance of vertical integration to control quality and founded
Tri-City Vinyl to manufacture his own pool liners.

One day it occurred to him: If his product could keep water in, it could keep water out. In 1978, that insight became the Duro-Last Roofing System.

The majority of roofing system failures then (and still today) are not due to the product itself, but to workmanship on-site.

To solve this problem, Duro-Last developed custom prefabrication methods and specialized equipment that allows us to complete nearly 100% of the difficult roof details and up to 85% of field seams under ideal factory-controlled conditions. The result is lower on-site labor costs and better installation quality. 

Learn more about our prefabrication benefits. 

Duro-Last is now the world's largest manufacturer of custom-fabricated roofing systems. Duro-Last Roofing Systems, our contractor installation team, customer service and best-in-class warranties all set the quality standards for the roofing industry.

Duro-Last X Custom-Cut Single Ply Roofing Membrane

Manufactured with the same formulation as the industry-leading Duro-Last® membrane, Duro-Last X is an excellent choice for contractors seeking the convenience of roll goods coupled with the customization of custom-cut lengths. Designed to reduce scrap and improve installation efficiency over traditional roll goods, the Duro-Last X membrane is available in 10-foot wide rolls that can be custom-cut to any length up to 200 feet. While the formulation is the same, Duro-Last X is manufactured using a different process, resulting in a smooth matte finish. A complete line of custom-fabricated accessories and parapets are also available with Duro-Last X, which are made from the Duro-Last flagship membrane and have a glossier initial appearance.
